Going way back when I was" in" I loved that book "Your Will Be Done On Earth" I thought it summed up the political / millitary times we were living in down to a tee.
The book at the time seemed to describe world events as they were happening.
The king of the North the USSR ( United Soviet Socialist Republic ) not to be confused with Russia of today.
The King of the South the Anglo-American Alliance that existed back then ,the two major powers aligned together in WW2 .Again not to be confused with their situation today.
Of course it all came to nothing.
Didnt they write another Daniel prophecy book later on ? after my time how did that go ? .not to good I imagine.
I think the only way young people can get an inkling of what it was like to live in the 50`s and 60`s is to watch some movies such as "Fail safe" "The Bedford Incident" and the classic "Dr. Strangelove" and maybe "On The Beach"
In those days a number of Nations were testing Atomic Bombs And Hydrogen Bombs above ground which does not occur today.
The united Kingdom ,the USA , Russia ,and France were testing these bombs in the atomosphere.
Think of the bombs that devastated Nagasaki and Hiroshima and these were becoming more powerful with each test.
