In the last days there will be great preparations, and eventually the execution, of a massive global war that some will call "World War 3". It's not certain what form this will take, either conventional or nuclear, but it will engulf the entire war and will likely occur in conjunction with a major triggering event such as a global economic collapse. It could also be the war spoken of in Revelation 6. Nobody is quite certain.
