After a month of feasting and restrengthening at the Marriage Supper, it is back to work.
“and I saw heaven opened, and lo, a white horse and he who is sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness does he judge and make war. . . and the armies in the heaven were following him upon white horses . . . and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he has on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, ‘KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS’.” (Revelation 19:11,14-16)
“I saw the beast (Antichrist) and the kings of the earth and their armies having been gathered together to make war with him who is sitting upon the horse and with his army.” (Revelation 19:19)
Can you imagine the audacity, the Antichrist is totally insane and he just does not give up. What could be his line here? “This world is mine and I would rather destroy it than give it up, but now this Jesus has predicted that he will come back and plans to take over the earth with an invasion from outer space. We have held out so long, we will not give in to them now. To the death, because I am the ruler and god of this world and it stays that way, even if I am the last man alive!
While the war against the Jihad is going on on the one hand, the unholy trinity of Satan, the Antichrist and the False Prophet “will perform miraculous signs and they go out to the kings of the whole world to gather them to battle . . to the place that in Hebrew is called ARMAGEDDON” (Rev.16:13,14,16). He brings the kings of the earth together to fight off an invasion from outer space.
The Devil knows that Jesus and his armies will come back after the Marriage Feast to take over the world. This is the reason for the extraterrestrial issue and why weaponizing space is “a need.” “Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth have set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against his anointed” (Psalm 2:1).
The Lord will fight as in the days of old
“Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.” (Zech.14:3) ”The LORD shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” (Exodus 14:14) “set yourselves, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD. . . And when they began to sing and to praise. . the armies began to utterly slay and destroy each other.” (2Chronicles 20:17,20,23) The Antichrist comes to his end, “whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming.” (2Thessalonians 2:8)
“and the beast (Antichrist) was taken, and with him the false prophet who did the signs and led astray. . . these both were cast alive into the lake of fire” (Revelation 19:19,20) Good riddance of bad rubbish! So these guys go to the lake of fire. “an angel came down from heaven . . . and he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years . . . and shut him up”. (Revelation 20:3) So thank God, Satan goes to prison and is shut up. No more talk out of him for a while.
The armies are now leaderless and “every man’s sword shall be against his brother.” (Eze.38:21) “the Lord set ambushments . . and they were smitten . . every one helped to destroy another. .they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth,and none escaped.” (2Chronicles 20:22-24)
Earthquake, great hail
An inconceivable earthquake totally off the Richter Scale, rocks the world. “all the men . . shall shake at my presence . . mountains shall be thrown down, . . and every wall shall fall . .” (Eze.38:20) and “the Mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof”. (Zech.14:4)
In the confusion the soldiers kill their fellow soldiers “every man’s sword shall be against his brother”. (Eze.38:21)
“and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone” (Eze.38:22) “great hail . . every stone the weight of a talent” – 35 to 45 kg (Rev.16:21) add to the massacre.
The battle field: Armageddon
“You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel, you, and all your bands . . You shall fall upon the open field: says the Lord GOD.” (Eze.39:4,5) “A place called . . Armageddon”,(Rev.16:16) The original word is Ar Magedon which literally means “mount of Megiddo” — a city from which only ancient ruins remain. The ruins are overlooking the plain of Esdraelon, a.k.a. as the plain of Jezreel, or the valley of Megiddo. This valley of 380 square kilometers is the place where the Battle of Armageddon will take place.
Bloodbath and Birds
“I will rain upon him, and upon his bands,. . an overflowing rain,” (Ezekiel 38:22) – After 3½ years of drought, as it did not rain during the days of the two witnesses “it rained not in the days of their prophecy” (Rev.11:6), comes the cloudburst. They’ll be slugging it out first in puddles, then pools of blood – It says, “blood . . unto to the horse’s bridle” That’s four feet deep “by the space of 1600 furlongs”, or 322 km. (Rev.14:20) An incredible bloodbath of unimaginable proportions. 322 km is 2/3 the length of Israel. In case it is square km, then it is a lake of roughly 16 by 20 km four feet deep with blood. The whole valley of Megiddo is 380 square km.
The Lord says: “I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured”. (Ezekiel 39:4)
“And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.. .and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.” (Rev.19:17,18,21)
Civil war, Panic and Anarchy
“Out of his (Jesus) mouth goes a sharp sword, . with it he will smite the nations.” (Rev. 19:15,21) “The sword is the word of God.” (Hebrews 4:12) Besides the armies, the people of the nations will also hate Jesus.“Men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (John 3:19) “The world hates me, because I testify of it that the works thereof are evil.” (John 7:7)
“On that day men will be stricken by the Lord with great panic. Each man will seize the hand of another, and they will attack each other.” (Zechariah 14:13)
It is total bedlam, anarchy and civil war. Can you see it unfolding with the world-wide rising of the Islam culminating in the final Jihad of neighbour killing neighbour?
“every one helped to destroy another. . .” (2Chronicles 20:23)
“And the remnant (those that remain) were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth” (Revelation 19:21) “The word of the Lord is a two edged sword” (Hebrews 4:11) Can you imagine people would rather kill each other than submit to the words of His mouth and to His loving authority? People going absolutely berserk with hate.
As the civil anarchy ends, the words of Genesis will ring true, “Whoso sheds man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed.” (Gen.9:6)
The words of prophet Isaiah are fulfilled who described the nuclear war and its aftermath, “the constellations . . shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened . . I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place . . in the day of his fierce anger.” (Isaiah 13:10,13)
He also gives the reason of why it happens, “I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity, I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease.” (Isaiah 13:11)
‘the earth shall remove out of her place’– Possibly the earth’s axis can tilt, because of nuclear explosions, or an asteroid, or the Magnetic Pole now traveling at the speed of 3 miles per month. “If the pole continues its current course, it will shoot across the top of Earth and end up in Siberia by mid-century.” (Larry Newitt-Natural Resources Canada)
Finally after 45 days the slaughter comes to an end and the battle of Armageddon is over. The humble people that did not go up in the Rapture and were hiding in the jungles and wildernesses to stay away from this absurd insanity that was going on in the “civilized world” can come out. “Okay it’s over, you can come out now!” and finally it will be that “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” (Mat.5:5)
Few males will be left
Isaiah describes that hardly any males will be left: “I will make a man more precious than fine gold.” (Isaiah 13:12)
There will be so few men left that . . . ,“in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, ‘We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: (we will do our own shopping) only let us be called by your name, to take away our reproach.’” (Isaiah 4:1) The reproach of not bearing or having children.
