Many people have read the bible prophesy at 1 Thes 5:2,3 thinking it means the world will declare 'peace and security' to have come just before Armageddon. But what if the understanding is a bit different? The thought occurred to me after reading about the latest North Korean missile test.
Instead of being a cry that it had been achieved, could it instead be a cry that it was being threatened?
Which reminds me of the Woody Allen prophesy that, "two countries will go to war and one will win."
In other words... Thes may not be useful predictively, but simply confirmational after the fact.
