THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON

April 16, 2012

Let me set the stage for the upcoming battle. I found studying Old Testament scriptures is the key to gaining insight into events leading up to the battle. These scriptures are: Daniel 11, Joel 2, and Zechariah 14: 1- 4. The tribulation period is coming to an end; the Antichrist has broken his treaty with Israel, moved into Jerusalem with his entourage and he has desecrated the Jewish temple. While strengthening his kingdom he hears of a plan attack against him from nations north and east of Jerusalem. The Antichrist with his allies plan a confrontation against his attacking enemies. In the midst of their warfare they will look up and see Jesus coming in the clouds. The warring fractions then unite to fight Jesus their common enemy.

In the latter part of Revelation chapter nineteen the battle of Armageddon is mentioned.

John sees heaven open and Jesus who is called Faithful, True, Word of God, and a name known only to Him, riding a white horse. His garment is dipped in blood and the name King of King and Lord of Lords was written on it and his thigh. Following Jesus on white horses was His army clothed in fine, white, clean linen.

The birds of heaven was summoned by an angel to come to the impending slaughter to feast on the dead flesh of Jesus’ enemies which included kings, captains, mighty men,  their horses, and men of all economic status.

At the conclusion of the battle all were killed by the sharp sword in Christ’s mouth except the Antichrist and the false prophet who were captured alive and both were cast into the lake of fire. They are the first to enter in it; the rest of the unbelievers will follow after the white throne judgment.
