North Korean media issue threat to ‘wipe out’ U.S.
April 25, 2017 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “An official North Korean website warned Monday that Pyongyang will ‘wipe out’ the United States if Washington starts a war on the peninsula, the latest tit-for-tat sabre-rattling that has sent tensions soaring in the region.
The US supercarrier Carl Vinson will arrive in waters off the Korean peninsula ‘in a matter of days’, Vice President Mike Pence said Saturday, amid reports the North could be preparing a sixth nuclear test.
Pyongyang is still believed to be far from reaching its aim of building a missile capable of reaching the US mainland, but the secretive nation has ramped up its rhetoric in recent weeks and has carried out two rocket tests this month alone.
In a series of editorials the Rodong Sinmun newspaper — the official mouthpiece of the ruling Workers’ Party — said the North’s forces were undeterred and called the US strike group’s imminent arrival ‘undisguised military blackmail’.
‘Such threat may startle a jellyfish, but can never work on the DPRK,’ it said Monday, using the country’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea…” (Nuclear war is coming – “Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.” This conflict called Armageddon is described in Revelation 9:14 – 18.

North Korea Nukes San Francisco in Propaganda Video
April 21, 2017 — Breitbart.com reports: “A series of North Korean nuclear weapons destroys San Francisco in the ‘Hermit Kingdom’s’ latest propaganda film, which was created for the grand finale of celebrations commemorating founder Kim Il Sung’s 105th birthday last weekend.
According to video of the event, which was acquired by the San Francisco Chronicle, music was played by a military symphony in the background as an audience of men in dull-brown uniforms and other military attire cheered on the massive explosion and ensuing destruction of the city. Following the explosion, the American flag can be seen waving over a military cemetery.
The Chronicle reports that the concert was part of the ‘Day of the Sun’ festivities honoring the late Kim. San Francisco was reportedly wiped out in about 15 seconds.
On Saturday, North Korea tried unsuccessfully to test a real missile, which blew up before it launched. Breitbart News previously reported that the North Korean government alleged that the United States was behind the missile’s failure, suggesting America had infiltrated Pyongyang’s computer systems through a sophisticated cyber-attack program…”

May 4, 2017 — WND.com reports: “Tensions on the Korean peninsula are reaching an unprecedented boiling point, as North Korea’s leader threatens war with China, its strongest and most important ally, over its ‘nuclear betrayal.’
