This prophecy speaks of major wars erupting all over the globe, far more than is or ever was typically seen in history. But this isn't just literal nations rising against nations. The original Greek word used in this prophecy is "Ethnos", which is where we get the word "Ethnic" from. So these wars won't just be nation against nation, but also race against race, and ethnic group against ethnic group, and even possibly one religious group against another which we're seeing in full bloom right now.
