Analysis from the Philadelphia Church of God, claims the danger posed by North Korea is graver than many people realised.
They suggest Pyongyang and despot leader Kim Jong-Un could inflict major damage on the US or other Western nations.
Writing for The Trumpet, the news magazine of the church, Jeremiah Jacques indicates any strike could contribute to the wars and rumors of wars that Jesus Christ warned would occur before the third world war breaks out.
End times and the apocalypse have long been linked to possible nuclear war.
The Bible describes that some 2,000 years ago, as Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem with his disciples, he was asked what would happen at the end of the world.
He claimed there would be wars and rumors of wars, as well as fierce international tensions and famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes.
And while Mr Jacques admits this is unlikely to refer to North Korea, he suggested the hermit state could in fact play the role of a trigger to cause the devastating scenes of Revelations.

The analysis said: All of the missiles and nuclear technology the Kim dynasty has been developing over the years will contribute to the unprecedented devastation to occur during that prophesied third world war.
And he claims that although North Korea will not cause WW3 according to the Bible, the world should take its threats and actions seriously.
Trumpet executive editor Stephen Flurry and managing editor Joel Hilliker said: If nothing else, the mere threat of a mentally unstable tyrant in North Korea using nuclear weapons should cause all of us to be asking some very hard questions.
Rising current nuclear tension should provoke us to consider seriously the biblical prophecies of nuclear destruction.
Those prophecies are drawing closer than ever to fulfillment!
It comes after Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California says analysis of the escalating tensions between North Korea and the US suggests a nuclear war between the two superpowers fits into the End Times prophecy.
He said: In the Last Days there is no mention of any nation that would resemble North Korea however the Bible does speak of Iran in the End Times scenario.
You might be surprised to know there is an alignment of sorts between North Korea and Iran.
In fact, former ambassador the United Nations John Bolton recently said if North Korea developed a delivery system for nuclear weapon Iran would have it the next day simply by writing a cheque.
Tensions between North Korea and the United States have escalated in recent weeks with US President Donald Trump and dictator Kim embroiled in a war of words.
Mr Trump warned the US was “locked and loaded” as Kim threatened to strike US territory Guam in the Pacific Ocean.
