Just a friendly reminder, that on any given day, merely one large mega-ton nuclear device exploded high in the atmosphere over the United States, could fry virtually every "unhardened" electrical device in the entire nation. Numerous prophecies speak about the fall of the oddly yoked Anglo-American dyad. The only thing at this point that remains unclear is exactly when the downfall will occur and how it will come about. Interestingly, the 11th chapter of Daniel foretells that the king of the north will be "successful" until the end of the world. Daniel 11:36b says regarding the king of the north: "And he will certainly prove succesful until the denunciation will have come to a finish; because the thing decided upon must be done."
"The thing decided upon" is apparently the fact that the king of the north is going to tyrannize the world as no imperial tyrant ever has before. The denunciation is what is mentioned in verse 44, described as the king going on a genocidal rampage. Interestingly, this king of the north promotes apostasy in Jehovah's organization until the "time of the end," which apparently affects the organization at its highest levels, causing many to stumble and serving to cleanse and whiten the congregation.
So, as it relates to the use of EMP weaponry, the high-tech Western civilization is totally dependent upon computers and high speed communications. A sudden burst from a nuclear weapon high in the atmosphere would not necessarily kill anyone. What it would do though, is collapse the financial infrastructure of the world at the spped of light. It would also effectively shut down the Watchtower of Brooklyn, New York. Then, it will have to be demonstrated whether one has the faith or not. That's when those having insight will shine as brightly as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. / You Know
