Q. Can you speak about the current events in Pakistan how they might play out in the Ends Times with regards to the War on Terror?
A. Pakistan is the sixth most populous nation in the world and the second largest Muslim nation behind Indonesia. It’s located between the Middle East and Asia, borders Iran, Afghanistan, China, and India and is the only Islamic nation that we know about with nuclear weapons. Pakistan has been accused of sharing their nuclear capability with others notably N.Korea, Syria and Iran.
Prior to 9-11 Pakistan was friendly with the Taliban but was pressured into joining the war on terror by the US. Some believe that Pakistan never really severed those ties, may know where Osama bin Laden is hiding, and may even be helping him. I think that sooner or later Pakistan will line up with the rest of the Moslem world against the West.
The 6th Trumpet judgment (Rev. 9:13-19) speaks of a war where 200 million combatants are loosed and wind up killing 1/3 of mankind. I think this war is fought east of the Euphrates for control of the Far East. If so China, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Korea and Japan will all be involved. Over 40% of the world’s population lives in these countries. They could easily field armies of the required size and sustain casualties in the billions.
