The buildup toward WW3 is nonstop. There is tremendous tension building in Europe between NATO and Russia, while in Asia it is between China and the rest of Asia, with the US added to this mix. The tensions are getting so high that any incident could trigger the war. Right now, the South China Sea is the real hot spot, as China is very aggressive and seems ready for the war.
It seems that America is sleep-walking into this. So few see what is happening, and the mainstream press is ignoring it.
I do see this war happening along the lines of WW1. There was a huge buildup of weaponry prior to the war, but there was no direct cause to start a war. In June 1914, the assassination of Arch Duke Ferdinand was the trigger. No one could see this coming, and WW3 might start the same way.
No matter what happens, we look to the coming of the Prince of Peace who will rapture us to heaven with him. We then will enjoy the marriage supper of the Lamb and return with him as Jesus Christ establishes his kingdom on earth. The place of his return and his capital will be Jerusalem. When Jesus Christ returns he will put an end to war.
