In Ezekiel 38 and 39 the Bible speaks of the Gog and Magog war. From my understanding this war involves Russia, Germany, and multiple Muslim countries, all attacking Israel. With the help of God Israel defeats the attacking armies. (Note 1) Five of every six people from the attacking armies will be killed (Ezekiel 39:2) with the survivors fleeing in fear of God. Israel will then burn the weapons of war for seven years. (Ezekiel 39:9-10)
Thirty years ago, I heard about Russia working on a type of wood to be used in military vehicles. Today that idea of wood armor is coming true. Compressed and heated, it is stronger, lighter, and absorbs shock better than steel. Russia is using it for armament and the United States is experimenting and starting to use it too. There is a massive amount of information on this on the web.

God looked into the future and told of Israel burning the weapons of war. Many said you can’t burn steel, but today wood armor can burn hotter and longer than coal. (Note 2)
God’s Word is True
Note 1 God also helped Israel defeated overwhelming military power in 1948 and 1967.
Note 2 Imagine a shepherd needing fuel for a fire and goes to pickup part of a tank for his fire. Or a power plant needs fuel and goes out to pickup a couple of tanks and personnel carriers.
Ezekiel 39:2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
Ezekiel 39:9-10 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.
