Russia has announced it has tested what it is calling the "Father Of All Bombs", a massive "vacuum bomb" that it is claimed has the destructive power of a nuclear blast but without the radiation. The Russians named the device after America's "Mother Of All Bombs", officially named the "Massive Ordinance Air Bomb". The announcement was made by the Russian deputy armed forces chief of staff Alexander Rukshin on ORT First Channel television. The news report showed a Tupolev Tu-160 strategic bomber dropping the bomb on a testing ground. A large explosion followed, which scorched the earth within the vicinity of the blast and levelled a multi-storey block of flats...
Quote: "Such devices generally detonate in two stages. First a small blast disperses a main load of explosive material into a cloud, which then either spontaneously ignites in air or is set off by a second charge. This explosion generates a pressure wave that reaches much further than that from a conventional explosive. The consumption of gases in the blast also generates a partial vacuum that can compound damage and injuries caused by the explosion itself. "The main destruction is inflicted by an ultrasonic shockwave and an incredibly high temperature," the reports said. "All that is alive merely evaporates." Rukshin said: "At the same time, I want to stress that the action of this weapon does not contaminate the environment, in contrast to a nuclear one."
I don't know whether it will be such a weapon as this or if it will be a nuclear explosion, but the Bible states in Ezekiel that such a destructive weapon will be used during Russia's invasion of Israel, as foretold in Ezekiel 38-39. At the commencement of the Six Day War, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser boldly proclaimed, "The armies of Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon are poised on the borders of Israel ... while standing behind us are the armies of Iraq, Algeria, Kuwait, Sudan and the whole Arab nation. This act [the destruction of Israel] will astound the world". The Israeli response did astound the world, as through God's help Israel destroyed the armies of Egypt, Jordan and Syria within a few days. In the not too distant future the Arab armies will once again launch an attack on Israel, and once again the entire world will shake at God's presence. Then shall God be sanctified in the eyes of all nations.
