On Monday, Aug. 22, in the wee hours of the night, I had a disturbing prophetic dream. In this dream, I witnessed the discharge of a hypersonic missile.
In the dream, I stood by as I watched a hypersonic nuclear missile being discharged. I saw the launch of World War III. I felt horrified and helpless to do anything about it.
As the missile emerged from its canister, my dream came to an abrupt end.
This is the state-of-the-art missile that can carry a nuclear payload and that has been perfected by Russia, and possibly by China. Hypersonic missiles and projectiles purportedly travel anywhere between five to 25 times the speed of sound (one to five miles per second, up to 18,000 miles per hour).
One hypersonic missile carrying a nuclear payload, if detonated under water in the Atlantic Ocean off of the western coast of the United Kingdom, would create a tidal wave so massive that it would completely cover the United Kingdom with water, wiping the country off the face of the earth. Several detonated off both coasts of the United States would submerge two-thirds of the United States under water.
This is why wars are frightening, let alone a nuclear one.
According to Mike Stone, author of the article “U.S. Successfully Tests Pair of Lockheed Hypersonic Missiles,” published by Reuters on Wednesday, July 13, 2022, “The United States successfully tested two Lockheed Martin Corp hypersonic missiles recently, the Pentagon said on Wednesday, amid growing concerns Russia and China have had more success developing their own hypersonic weapons.”
He said that the U.S. Air Force has confirmed that it successfully tested its Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW) booster on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, off the California coast. Reuters reported that in a previous test, in which the booster was attached under the wing of a B-52H, “the weapon did not detach from the plane.”
Despite its recent success, the American hypersonic missile system has been far from perfected. But it is merely a completion of the introductory phase of the testing. Russia has already completed all testing, has built many and is building many more, now, and is ready to launch any number of them and strike hostile nations. America has a very long way to go to catch up and should leave Russia alone.
According to the United Nations, international law favors Russia’s response to Ukraine because Ukraine has violated international law along with the US Department of Justice by allowing the DOJ to fund and build dozens of illegal biological weapons laboratories in Ukraine and engage in terrorist activities against Russia. When Russia has the legal framework to respond with hypersonic missiles with conventional or nuclear payloads, in self-defense, we should be concerned about our survival.
In “DARPA Updates On OpFires Hypersonic Missile Test,” published by Naval News on August 10, 2022, Peter Ong, the author, stated that on July 13, “DARPA’s Operational Fires (OpFires) program has successfully executed its first flight test [of a hypersonic missile] at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.”
I was stationed there and saw the kinds of tests they conducted.
Jesus said, “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled. For all these things must happen, but the end is not yet… And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come” (Matt. 24:6-14, MEV).
