ARMAGEDDON

ARMAGEDDON occurs only in Rev. 16:16 as symbolically designating the place where the "battle of that great day of God Almighty" (Rev. 16:14) shall be fought. The word means the "mount of Megiddo." It is the scene of the final conflict between Christ and Antichrist.

TO HAR-MAGEDON Between the sixth and seventh bowls of wrath is an interlude. There is an interlude, a pause, between the sixth and seventh features of each series of calamities. It is simply a break for the filling in of details, or giving more information. Rev. 16:13Ė14 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. [14] For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. [15] Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. [16] And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. [KJV]

I do not think that this will be a single battle but a war, the war of Armageddon. I think it will be triggered by the coming down of Russia from the north sometime around the middle of the Tribulation Period. The campaign will extend the length of Palestine to the Valley of Jehoshaphat and the mountains of Edom. It will continue for approximately three and one half years. It will be concluded by the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ from Heaven to establish His kingdom. The Sun of Righteousness will arise with healing in His wings. Here we are introduced to the trinity of hell: Satan, Antichrist, and the False Prophet. They act in together in unison, forcing the nations of the world to march against Israel in an attempt to destroy Godís purposes on earth. God gave certain promises to Abraham and to those who would come after him. He made certain covenants with the Hebrew people, and those covenants are going to stand, just like John 3:16 stands for believers today. Satan cannot and will not be victorious! Donít think that God is through with the nation Israel. Donít think that all of Godís covenants with Israel are canceled or void. They are not! Donít think that God has no intentions of making good any of His promises to Israel. He will make them all good! Count on it, even though there are literally hundreds of them in the Old Testament. 1 Donít liberalize the Scriptures. The Bible is a literal book. It is the purpose of Satan to destroy Godís covenants with Israel, and that is the reason Satan moves in and brings the whole world against this little nation. This will happen during the Great Tribulation. Look at the tremendous scene before us. "As it were frogs." Will they be literal frogs? I want to think of them as a symbol. We are supposed to take the Book of Revelation literally, unless it is clearly a symbol. Yes, thatís right, but see Johnís words: "as it were frogs." He does NOT say they were frogs. John is always very careful to give us an accurate picture of what he sees. J. A. Seiss, in his book, The Apocalypse, Lectures on the Book of Revelation, comments on the frogs in a vivid manner: "They are spirits; they are "unclean spirits;" they are "demon spirits;" they are sent forth into activity by the Dragon Trinity; they are the elect agents to awaken the world to the attempt to abolish God from the earth; and they are frog-like in that they come forth out of the pestiferous quagmires of the universe, do their work amid the worldís evening shadows, and creep, and croak, and fill the ears of the nations with their noisy demonstrations, till they set all the kings and armies of the whole earth in enthusiastic commotion for the final crushing out of the Lamb and all His powers. As in chapter 9, the seven Spirits of God and of Christ went forth into all the earth to make up and gather together into one holy fellowship the great congregation of the sanctified: so these spirits of Hell go forth upon the kings and potentates of the world, to make up and gather together the grand army of the Devilís worshippers."

In our own day we have seen how the news media can become a distortion agent to carry out the purposes of men who are in the background. The news media can actually brainwash the people. This is exactly what the evil trinity will do. They will brainwash the nations of the world into marching against Israel. ALL the nations of the world will gather against tiny Israel (Zec.12:2-3, 9). The Lord Jesus is the only One who can stop this slaughter. Israelís help does not come from the north or the south or the east or the west. Thatís where their trouble is coming from (all directions). Their help comes ONLY from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth. Rev. 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. [KJV] Christ will never come as a thief to the church. 1 Thes. 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. [KJV] A thief is someone you shut out; you surely donít welcome him. You lock him out. Christ does not come as a thief to His church which is looking for Him. Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; [KJV] BUT, the Lord Jesus does come as a thief to the world at the end of the Great Tribulation, just as the verse indicates. The whole Earth will mourn because of Him. They donít want Him to come. They would like to shut Him out, from ever returning, but they canít!

Rev. 16:16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. [KJV] This is the only place the word Armageddon appears in Scripture, although there are many references to it. It means "Mount of Megiddo." It is a compound word made up of the Hebrew words Har, meaning "mountain," and Megiddo, which is a mount in the plain of Esdraelon. It is an extremely fertile valley. "He gathered them together." The "He" is probably God Himself. Although Satan, Antichrist, and the False Prophet act in unison to force the nations of the world to march against Israel, they will be fulfilling the Word of God. God allows it all to happen.

FINAL BATTLE

Rev. 19:17-21 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; [18] 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. [19] And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. [20] And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. [21] And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. (KJV) . . . This is one Passage of Scripture which is sickening to read, but God included it to remind us how disgusting and nauseating to Him are the deeds of the flesh. Men who live in the flesh will have their flesh destroyed. This is the end of the Battle of Armageddon. This is an invitation to the meat-eating birds. They are summoned to a banquet on Earth where they will have A-1 flesh to eat, the kings and the mighty men of the Earth. It is fearful to rebel against God, because He is going to judge you someday. This horrific scene reveals the heart of man and how dreadful that heart really is.

HELL OPENED

For the very first time Hell shall be opened up. Up to now, no one was in Hell. All unbelievers are kept in Hades (the present day Hell). Hell is real and it is there, for God has prepared it for the devil and his angels and all who follow him (Mat.25:41). It just wonít be open for business until this event in history. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the rest were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, What an awful picture. The Beast and the False Prophet defy God right up to the very last. They DARE to make war with the Son of God! Surely "He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh" (Ps.2:4; 37:13) at the utter hopelessness of their efforts. It is absurd that there will be such a rebellion of man against God. The outcome is inevitable. So, is the "lake of fire" literal? Think about this. IF Hell is not literal, it means that it is worse than a literal fire of brimstone. "The sword which came forth out of his mouth." Some ask laughingly, "You donít believe that there is going to be a literal sword coming out of the mouth of Jesus, do you?" The Word of God has made it clear that His Word is like a sword.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. [KJV] Ephes. 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: [KJV]

Isaiah 11:4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. [KJV] The Bible makes quite clear the symbol of the "sword." The "sword" that comes from the mouth of Jesus is His Word. It was His Word that created this universe (immense power). It is the Word of God which will save you. And it will be the Word of God that will destroy the wicked at the end of this age.

Closing Comments

Many think Armageddon will be just one day. I simply cannot see it that way. The more I study Godís Word, the more it seems to me that it is NOT a one day battle, but a long-range war! The final battle, yes, probably one day. It will be F-A-S-T! It will not take Jesus long to put an end to Israelís enemies. All Jesus will need to do is speak! It will be over! Satan and all his followers will know the wrath of God, up close. The 200 million soldiers in the 9th chapter of Revelation, in my estimation will be involved in this horrible war. I, in NO way, claim to know it all. I simply write and teach what the Lord has put on my heart. I back up what I write by Scriptures whenever possible. But, in some cases, it all boils down to common sense. To me, Armageddon is a war, not a brief battle. Christians differ, as to their views of the times and duration of events yet to be brought to pass, for no one except Almighty God knows for certain every detail. But on one point all are agreed, Christ Jesus, the Lord of glory, will suddenly come again to judge the sinful world, and He will be absolutely 100% victorious! Count on it. To those walking with Christ, it is an matter of joyful hope and expectation. I know there may be times I am wrong about details. But it is the end result we must be concerned with, eternal life in Heaven with our glorious Lord. I am NOT wrong about that!
