Whether we like it or not, a third world war has begun, and it is being fought for all the same reasons that previous world wars have been fought. The question is…
When did World War III begin?
Remember that wars are started by people who want something and consider mass murder to be an acceptable way of getting it. If the world did not have leaders willing to engage in mass murder, there would be no wars.
However, God has turned our evil towards His purposes. God used World War I and World War II.
How is God using World War III?

When Did World War III Begin?
People treat wars as if they are inevitable – like the change of seasons or some particularly bad weather event. There is truth to this, but only in the same way that crimes are inevitable when there are enough people in one place to commit them. Because we are evil, there will always be criminals and war.
Germany, Austria and the Ottoman Empire, were the criminals that brought us World War I. Germany and Austria wanted more power, having missed out on the colonial imperialism enjoyed by Britain, France and Spain. They also wanted more access to the oil in central Asia and the Middle East. The Ottomans wanted to rejuvenate their failing empire. The Turks had been losing ground since the height of their empire in 1595, and nothing that they did seemed to work. They had put their hopes on the central powers of Europe, and it was a disaster.
World War II started for much the same reasons. Germany, Italy and Japan had imperial ambitions, and wanted oil. China was fractured and weak. Russia only looked strong on paper. The British Empire was failing. And, an isolationist America seemed indifferent to what was going on in Europe. Hitler, Mussolini and Hirohito saw an opportunity and launched their own worldwide mass murder. It too was a disaster.
How did God use those two vile wars?
The creation of the State of Israel.
Just as God used the evil of Pharoah to bring the Children of Israel into their land, God also used Germany, Austria, Italy, Japan and the Ottoman Empire to bring about His purpose towards Israel. Countless books have been written that cover the details of how this happened, and I’ve done my own share of writing on this. Suffice it to say that the result was a tiny patch of ground the size of Taiwan, on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea.
Oh, and the fulfillment of prophecy.
Now, as World War III has begun, I’m wondering how this will fulfill prophecy yet again. In fact, I’m certain of it. But wait…
How do I know that World War III has begun?
When DID it begin?
My thoughts gathered around this topic because of a video that I saw just today:
MacroVoices #320 Mike Green: Investment Strategies for World War III
Mike Green says that World War III began two years ago, and depending on how you define such things, he’s right. And also wrong. Wars are begun by placing the people willing to start them, into positions of power. In the case of this war, it was Vladimir Putin in 1999, Dick Cheney in 2001, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in 2003 and Xi Jinping in 2012. The people that preceded them were venal and corrupt, but not particularly interested in expanding their empires.
The world changed when those four men took the stage. And, everything that has happened since then has been entirely due to what they and their supporters have done.
Most of you already know what I think of Putin’s bloody massacres in Chechnya, Syria, Ukraine and even Africa. His corruption and thirst for power has been growing steadily for decades.
But, what about Xi Jinping?
I had been in Taiwan for a couple years, when Xi took the top spot in China. His predecessor, Hu Jintao, had seemed like a harmless nobody, and Xi (pronounced exactly like ‘she’) looked to be more of the same. And, before Hu (pronounced exactly like ‘who’), there was Jiang Zemin, who wasn’t much to write home about, either.
Unfortunately, Xi might look soft and cuddly, but he isn’t. He’s cut from the same cloth as Stalin, Hitler and Mao, but far more thoughtful and sophisticated in his grab for power. The ruling members of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) thought that he was a safe member of the ‘Shanghai Gang’ and would follow in the footsteps of Jiang and Hu. Xi had other ideas.
Xi had been quietly forming his own base of power that is now referred to as the Tsinghua Clique.
“Based out of Beijing, the Tsinghua Clique has as its core a cadre of students and teachers from Tsinghua University. Tsinghua is a member of the C9 League (the Chinese equivalent to the Ivy League) and a Double First-Class University (a designation of the university’s priority in terms of funding to ensure it is able to compete academically on the world stage).”
That’s from this article:
The Coming Removal of the Mandate of Heaven, Part 3: Political Infighting
That whole series on General Crisis Watch is fascinating. And, it spells doom for the Chinese Communist Party. Unless something changes China and Xi’s ambitions are toast, and they might take us down with them.
Enter this rather interesting video:
China is Heading for Disaster… On Purpose
That video engages in some speculations. His third theory is awfully theoretical. BUT, there is truth in there that we all need to pay attention to. Xi Jinping is a truly gigantic threat to all of us, if China’s problems don’t take him down first.
Think of Xi’s China as a more modern version of the Ottoman Empire.
They have nukes, and aren’t all that afraid to use them.
Vlad ‘The Bad’ Putin
The other guy with nukes is our boy Vladimir Vladimirovitch Putin, and talk from Moscow about using them is getting louder and louder. And, Russian state media are making it clear about what will happen, if Russia feels an existential threat:
Russian state TV is raging about WWIII and an inevitable escalation over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

And, this article from Julia Davis kinda hits home in unsettling ways:
Putin’s Stooges: He May Nuke Us All but We Are Ready to Die – ‘IT IS WHAT IT IS’
Just when you thought Russian airwaves could not get any stranger, Putin’s puppets have now surrendered to the idea of nuclear apocalypse, because at least they’ll “go to heaven.”
There is a dark fatalism that runs through Russian society, and Putin is tapping into it. If Russia loses in Ukraine – and it looks like they will – Putin might start using tactical nukes and then ICBMs. At that point, it would depend on whether there are good Russians willing to put a stop to that. And yes, there are lots of good Russians who do not like what’s happening.
Are there enough good Russians to stop nuclear war?
I don’t know. No one does.
The problem for Russia is that they are losing. They are making mistakes that no modern military should be making. And, they don’t seem to be learning from them. Logistics are terrible. They suffer a 30%+ dud rate on their munitions, because they are past their sell-by date. Vehicles have not been maintained and are failing. They do not have ‘air burst’ artillery shells and missiles. Morale is abysmal and fights are breaking out between units. Air superiority does not exist. Pro-Russian Ukrainians have become fiercely anti-Russian.
Here’s a good analysis:
Those are insane blunders. And, they show that Russia did not understand Ukraine. Worse, Russia greatly strengthened something in Ukraine that had been very weak – national identity. National identity is often forged in war, and Putin can now say that he’s done that, while also digging Russia’s grave.
There is a rather horrifying video that you might not want to watch, but explains some of what is happening:
Interview from Hell: Rubizhne, Donbas
The price that Ukraine and the Ukrainians are paying, is beyond belief for most English speakers. Those of us who have lived in war zones, understand this better. But, the price is heart breaking. Thankfully, my own experience is minor by comparison.
The Ukrainians Are NOT Nazis
And, since we’re talking about the Ukrainians, let’s look at them:

…that says a lot about that country.

Putin and his propagandists say the Russians are de-Nazifying Ukraine, making false claims that fascists are running the country. I’ve spoken with many, many Ukrainian Jews over the past 2 months for their views, and wrote this report. Now, a thread … 1/https://t.co/SxmOA0pvkR
— Zoya Sheftalovich (@zoyashef) April 25, 2022
So sick of that narrative, thrown out there by Russia and unfortunately picked up by our media. None of this ever had anything to do with speaking Russian vs. Ukrainian. Ukrainians speak multiple languages & were never prevented from speaking any of them.https://t.co/WFbBqw99VE

Putin wants to de-Nazify Ukraine — that’s ludicrous, say the country’s Jews
Jewish Ukrainians give short shrift to Putin’s claim he is out to save them from Nazis.
My Ukrainian friends aren’t Nazis. And, what few Nazis there are in Ukraine are barely countable. Every society has their share of morons who believe in ‘national socialism’. This is literally everywhere. We humans are evil, so there will always be Nazis.
If you want to find some real Nazis, go to the Kremlin. Moscow is literally run by ‘national socialism’. Putin is literally the walking, talking definition of Nazi. The Nazi Party was called the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (or, Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei), and Putin’s ‘United Russia Party’ is a mirror image of Nazism.
Cheney And Erdogan
Dick Cheney and Recep Erdogan have more obscure roles. Cheney was the author of the invasion of Iraq in 2003, and may have been a part of something far worse that we are not sure about. And Erdogan is directly responsible for collapse Syria and the mass murder of Syrian civilians.
Dick Cheney might actually be the most evil American still alive. What he helped orchestrate in Iraq and Afghanistan was beyond evil. If anyone can be said to have fired the first shot of World War III, it’s probably him. He’s the one person most responsible for destroying Iraq and handing the Middle East over to Iran. And, his foul legacy lives on in the US State Department.
Erdogan is vying for his own place in the history of mass murder. He funneled weapons and aid to ISIS and Al Qaeda, murdered Syrian civilians by the truckload and flooded Europe with Muslim refugees. And, he’s still adding to the blood on his hands by doing his best to massacre the Kurds.
Oh, and the war in Syria was all about oil and natural gas.
Just like the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine by Russia.
Where This Is Headed
Depending on how you define what world war means, it started with the election/appointment of vile people willing to engage in mass murder. And, we have a lot of dates to choose from. And, there are parts of this war that are unknown.
But, we do know where this is headed:

14 thoughts on “When Did World War III Begin?”
So I am hearing about the flechettes. What horrors are emerging. Yes this is evil and becoming more so. Another headline says Putin will be having cancer surgery soon. Maybe true, maybe disinformation. I think from here on out, though, things will do nothing but get worse. But the followers of this blog have pretty much concluded that already …..
I did not know about the cancer story. That might explain a few things. I’m afraid that these horrors are just the beginning. Food riots across Africa and Asia will add to the dead and dying. I had been hoping that we had more time before these things happened. Thank you for that update, DRG. – JL
John I understand where your message was going but how you get there leads to more questions?For instance what I have learned of WW11 and Japan the U.S. sanctioned the Japanese so heavily they had no choice but to see oil and gas forcefully instigated by the USA to enter WW11.Now the part that really gets me:Our goverment is corrupt our monetary system is in shambles,our economy headed off a cliff,Our Constition our Bill of Rightsis being trashed,we have hordes of paupers _ _ _ _ting on our streets.Why exactly are we supposed to care about Ukraine instead just maybe thats what the DHS and the new Ministry of Truth is pumping everybody behind Ukraine ignore the real culprit the USA and its neocon warmongers because it is th US who will fight till last Ukrainian standing.
Hi John Murray,
This piece was already several thousand words, which means there’s a limit to how much of the story I can tell at one time.
Do you know WHY the US put sanctions on Japan before World War II?
I remember being fed that line about how America lured Japan into attacking the US. How shameful that they failed to mention WHY these sanctions were placed upon Japan.
Ready for the answer?
All those years ago, they didn’t tell me why, either. So, I understand why you wouldn’t know. I had to look it up, myself. Unfortunately, those facts were inconvenient for those who paint the US as wanting a war with Japan. So, the answer might be new to many.
So, why did the US government seize Japanese assets in July of 1941?
Japan had already been raping and massacring its way across China. But then, they invaded what is now called Southeast Asia.
Remember that America supplied Imperial Japan with 80% of its oil, so that it could do its mass rape and mass murder.
How would you feel if you knew that America was making possible the mass rape, mass torture, mass enslavement and mass murder of innocent civilians in Asia?
Do you think that it’s a good thing to sell cheap oil to those engaged in the worst atrocities in human history?
Can ANYONE think that the Nanjing Massacre was a good thing? All the other massacres?
Should America have supported Hirohito and Hitler?
But of course, we did support them. Big business made lots and lots of money from them and were upset when their ‘gravy train’ was stopped. Standard Oil. IBM. Ford. They all made fabulous amounts of money from Hitler and Hirohito.
So, forgive me for being less-than-enthusiastic about the claims that you are making here. I despise what FDR did in other areas. I despise the many evils that happened at that time. But, I do not despise the cutting off of American oil to Imperial Japan the mass murders of Asia.
Those Christians who are against helping Ukraine survive against mass slaughter by Russia have lost sight of what it means to follow Christ.
I hope that helps clear things up a bit, John.
Yours in Christ,
Look up the interview on Fox where president nee comedian zelensky states that the Nazi Azov brigades have been “assimilated” into the regular army to dilute their influence.
I’m not a Putin apologist, this whole mess is an orchestrated war intended to hurt Russia, the West, and everybody possible.
Ukraine is a puppet Soros regime
It is true that there are neo-Nazis in the Azov battalion. It is also true that they’ve been assimilated into the regular Ukrainian army. What you did not see is that all these ‘battalions’ came out of volunteer groups that came together in 2014, when Russia invaded Ukraine. And yes, in 2014, Russia invaded Ukraine.
Did you know that there’s a ‘Bob Marley’ battalion?
Furthermore, neo-Nazi parties only got about 2% of the vote. Which is about normal for any country.
As for Soros… does it really matter?
Seriously, should America be invaded because Soros money backs certain groups in the US?
Should Italians be massacred because Soros money funds ‘democracy groups’ there?
Please think this through, Bondo.
Yours in Christ,
Look at the brief video there. I would find this hard to believe if I didn’t see it, and I don’t think it’s photoshopped. They are literally drilling into the concrete outside of people’s doors to install metal posts making it impossible for them to get out of their homes. Immurement. 25 million people in Shanghai, last I read, being entombed in their homes and their only hope of getting food and water is depending on government employees. How many of those would it take to actually feed 25 million people? More than there are, not to mention how competent and dependable and caring they will (not) be. This is too bizarre and horrific for words.
Unfortunately, this matches many of the horror stories coming out of China. The question is… what will they do to Beijing? What’s next for Xi Jinping? – JL
So what else are you and Mrs. Little hearing? is this not enough of an outrage to start a revolution? Isn’t that what the CCP is terrified of, losing control? So why would they be bringing this down upon their own heads?????
This is the power of propaganda and deep censorship in China. Many Chinese believe the CCP and trust them. And, the CCP is careful to coddle those who actively support them. (Membership has benefits.) How many do not, is hard to say. And, they would have to be quiet about any disagreement.
There is a kind of ‘underground’ that has formed. With connections outside of China that are getting the message out – and then, back in. One example is on Twitter:
The Great Translation Movement
There are also networks within China that work hard to get around the internal censorship and talk about what’s happening. The Falun Gong have their own network. So do Chinese Christians.
Are these networks and movements big enough to bring down the CCP?
Are the mistakes made by the CCP big enough to bring about their fall?
Will the infighting within the CCP bring it down, as opposition to it rises?
Mao and Stalin were clever in how they managed the death of millions by starvation. This time around, I’m not sure that they will be able to manage it. Killing the weak is harder with so many cell phones around.
Remember that the road to starvation leads through violence.
I hope that helps, DRG. Keep up the good work, and pray for our brothers and sisters in China.
Yours in Christ,
26 food factories have burned down in about 3 weeks. PCR tests are being used to find Avian flu and destroying entire flocks. Millions of birds and eggs our of production. I have mentioned livestock shortages now the government is paying 1.5x what animals are worth to destroy herds. Time to start growing and acquiring livestock and feed. There is shelves sitting empty abd the prices are climbing fast.
That is not an unusual number of fires at food processing plants. We get about that number every year. But, growing your own food is a good idea. – JL
While we are depleting our armory aiding Ukraine, who is blasting through a months worth of weapons every four days, China is biding their time until we are so depleted we can’t do the same for Taiwan.
I know what you read, so you know that there is about to be no food, nowhere.
Ukraine, with their gay porn star puppet actor president, a successor of the 2014 color revolution funded by Soros, is the hook in the jaws of the West.
Globalist puppet Biden is depleting our oil reserves, our armory, and our currency.
I would get out of Taiwan now.
For years, I have admired and respected your desire to grasp the truth without compromise. You have done your very best to point out the terrible path that America is on. Your passion for righteousness and truth is why your site is on Omega Shock’s blogroll, and will remain so.
However, there is a part that is missing, and I fear that I am partly responsible for this. By focusing so much on the vile actions of the US State Department – especially Victoria Nuland – I have not given you the bigger picture. I have not covered the events in Ukraine accurately. Nor have I demonstrated our need for compassion for those who suffer.
Omega Shock is first and foremost a site dedicated to following Christ. I have operated under the assumption that this is clear, and that everyone understands what it means to be a Christian. I believe that I have made a serious error in not making these principles more clear. I will need to focus more on this in the future.
As Christians, we cannot kill others for purposes of political gain. Nor are we allowed to support others in their attempts to kill others for political gain.
As followers of Christ, we cannot stand idly by, while men, women and children are being murdered. If they seek help from us, we must give it. As followers of Christ, we do not apply a ‘morality standard’ to our help.
If a homosexual asks us for food, we give it.
If some unknown person needs help carrying groceries into their car, we don’t ask if their moral values conform to our own.
We are followers of Christ. Just as Jesus defended the woman caught in adultery, we should do the same. We do not deserve the love, care and forgiveness that God gave to us, so we should not shrink from giving to others who also do not deserve it.
The Ukrainians are in desperate need. They have been unfairly attacked in the most brutal way possible. To stand by and allow the Ukrainians to be destroyed would be a vile thing to do. And, they do not need to pass a ‘morality test’ to obtain our support.
Furthermore, Zelensky is NOT a ‘gay porn star’. I have seen no proof of that, and I am in a position to have seen any such evidence. Having said that, I do not consider him to be a moral and upright man.
As for any funding of the ‘color revolution’ by Soros in Ukraine, it doesn’t matter. It does not make it right for Russia to invade Ukraine. Ukraine was NOT threatening Russia in any way.
Putin himself did not order the invasion of Ukraine because he perceived Ukraine to be a threat to Russia’s security. His statements. His actions. And his initial strategy for this war make that very clear.
This was about the love of money. Full stop.
The invasion of Taiwan is a different matter. I came here to serve God to the best of my feeble abilities, and if that means my death, then I am willing to die. Giving Ukraine $40 billion in weapons will not make my demise more certain. If anything, America’s determined support for Ukraine has made the invasion of Taiwan less likely.
Again, you have my admiration and respect, Bondo. And, I sympathize with your position. But, we must not forget what it means to follow Christ. As the days grow ever more dark, we will need to hold this foundation even closer.
Yours in Christ,
