North Korea is set to launch their long range missile anytime between April 4-8, 2009
And, Japan is not sitting idly by. The government has authorized the military to shoot down any suspected ballistic missile when in reaches Japan's airspace. The former is threatening that any hostile act against its launch is an act of war and would respond accordingly.
"Wars and rumors of wars" were predicted by the Lord Jesus Christ. However, Christians are not to cower in fear because of these things, but to be assured of God's abiding presence by the Holy Spirit and the certainty that the hour of His Second Coming is drawing ever closer. Take it as an early warning device that tells you something is going to happen really soon. To be forewarned is to be forearmed, so to speak.
Whatever happens we are secure in God's hands. God sits on the throne and He is in full control of everything. We will continue to do the task He has called us to do and wait for His coming.
Hallelujah. Maranatha! (Even so come Lord Jesus!)
