The word “Armageddon” only occurs in Revelation 16:16, and comes from a Hebrew word Har-Magedone, which means “Mount Megiddo. It is synonymous with a future battle in which God intervenes to destroy anti-Christ armies predicted in biblical prophecy in Revelation 16:16; 20:1-3, 7-10. The Battle of Armageddon occurs when Christ comes to Earth to fight one day battle between the governments on earth. God WILL DEFEAT FOREVER man-made rules deviating from God’s Approved Appointment of Jesus Christ. Many leaders depart from their responsibility and duty of care as stewards entrusted by God to provide and care for God’s people. Instead become 1% self-serving selfish greedy land wealth grabbers exclusively enrich themselves at expense of 99% of people on earth. Such turn God’s silver and God into personal private properties to exploit others. Jesus will take back the world from rebellion of satan accomplished in heaven as it got worse.Since devil deceived Adam and Eve sin happened in the garden. So Adam and Eve lost their powerful privileged position Under God as stewards. They Owned all wealth, controlled and dominated creeping creatures but listened to creature so prefer rule by creature humans instead of Loving, Honouring Creator God. So lost original Source of power and authority ordained by God to reign and rule earth. As a result satan took over the world for centuries as God’s punishment of mankind. God Patiently waited in Compassion Hoping mankind will come to their senses through pain suffering caused by reckless destruction of satan to turn to God. Instead mankind festered in sin more like, ‘their father the devil according to Jesus in John 8:44 you belong to your father the devil so carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from beginning not holding to Truth of God never stands for God’s Truth put confidence in chariots, horses, weapons of war. Unchecked climate change, global nuclear weapons modernizations, out sized nuclear weapon arsenals pose extraordinary undeniable threats to continued existence of humanity. World leaders fail to act with speed on the scale required to protect all citizens from potential catastrophe. These failures of political leadership endanger every person on earth. Mankind is desperate for God to take back earth so leads some to false peace by those that think they can step in to save mankind in place of God hence the battle of Armageddon.
The Good News is God Has Had Enough so acccording to Exclusive Classified Secret Mission based on God’s Time Table and Agenda, satan will be deposed after a season of destruction. So God wants back His World to Restore Everything to Perfection before sin entered. Therefore God will send Jesus to take back God’s world for Jesus to Reign over God’s Government. GOD WILL TAKE OVER the world to Establish His Kingdom but G7, Gog and Magog, Syria, anti-Christ will challenge God in grand final battle for Restoration for God’s Perfect Peace on earth. Armageddon refers to the final war between human governments and God to establish God’s Head Office in Jerusalem, Israel. The governments, nobles, rich people and supporters used to the privileged usurped power status oppose God’s Choice of Israel to lead God’s Global Kingdom on earth. God’s Theocratic Sovereign Power rejected so usurped by mankind for self -rule. So forced God to grant permissive will to mankind’s rebellion. All sophisticated nuclear scud and cruise missiles are useless against God Mankind’s intelligent sophistication has not saved world or brought peace on earth instead wickedness, evil, confusion, destructions. God watches and laughs as humans think they can rule better than God so God has had enough so Chose Christ to Rule. People in power are not prepared to give up power to step aside for God to take back His creation. So those who protest against God join forces in that day to fight God. The Bible says, Gog attacks the land of Israel, so God’s Hot wrath anger will be aroused in Ezekiel 38:18. In the Haftarah prophetic portion for Shabbat Chol Hamoed intermediate day of festival of Sukkot, the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel describes an end-time scenario in which formidable armies from the north, under leadership of Gog challenge restoration of Israel. So will gather together kings and leaders in place in Israel in a place in Hebrew called Armageddon to fight battle against God.”Gog is a chief prince living in the land of Magog in Ezekiel 38:2. Many scholars believe Magog is Russia invading land of Gomer now Germany.
Several lands in the coalition army are easily identifiable: Iran (Persia), Northern Sudan (ancient Ethiopia or Cush), Libya (Put), and Togarmah (Turkey). These forces will come upon Israel “like a cloud covers the land;” yet, God will not abandon His People. God will utterly destroy the coalition forces of Gog so that all nations will come to know holiness of the Lord in Ezekiel 38:16. The Ultimate battle will finally settle generational rebellion against God after thousands of years. Forces conspire against Israel in that day but God destroys them all in defeat so Gog’s weaponry provides fuel for Israel for 7 years in Ezekiel 39:9.”They will not need to gather wood from the fields or cut it from the forests, because they will use the weapons for fuel. Israel will plunder those who plundered them and loot those who looted them, declares the Sovereign LORD in Ezekiel 39:10. So many soldiers will die in this battle it will take seven months for Israel to bury them all and cleanse land in Ezekiel 39:12.
In order to clean the land, the people of Israel will be burying them there for seven months to make the land clean. Having received special favours from God, believers are cleansed by the blood of Jesus from all evil. God burns and destroy God’s enemies to give victory to Israel to defeat the anti-Christ who leads invasion of God’s enemies into the Holy Land of Israel. He will be captured and killed in final battle of Armageddon led by God Himself with armies of heaven, Destroyed by Awesome Power of Jesus Christ. In 1 John 4:1-3 all who deny Jesus came in flesh is the spirit of anti-Christ. In 2 John 1-11 people who deny Jesus deceive others against Christ and put themselves in place of Christ and God. The anti-Christ has no regard for Father God or fathers of the faith, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all in Daniel 11:37. Some Bible scholars think lack of desire of women means anti-Christ is the world’s last most terrible tyrant homosexual. Coalition conglomerate super power nations fight against Jesus and God.
Others think he is so arrogant and self-absorbed nothing and no one can deter him from loving himself above all. He considers himself far too important to give much regard to women. The anti-Christ hates and despises women so does not think they are equal human beings; not fit to be in powerful positions of authority, ministry, high offices in leadership, business so recklessly treats women as inferior and abuses them. Mocking and attacking Christ’s character is gnosticism disobedient to God’s Son Jesus Christ. In confusion, God’s enemies kill each other in friendly fire so ultimately realize God is fighting against them in Ezekiel 38:21, 23; Zechariah 14:13. The Bible and Torah scroll are God’s Protective Covering to protect, family, community so continue to plead God’s mercy, and lament evil days with hope to be shortened in Jesus Name. God’s Spirit filled word must be heard and answered by all cherished loved ones. According to Rabbinic tradition this war will be waged during month of Tishri, in holiday of Sukkot Feast of Tabernacles falls. God Only determines the Exact timing of events with signs of times and season’s birth pang sorrows. The world’s destruction by desolating sacrilege points to the fact that the European Union led by the G7 world has started fulfilling Bible prophecy yielding power to One man-made government. European Union’s one common currency tied together controls all members with fixed set rules purely for the purpose of remaining dominant united force to control all parts of the word. Interestingly enough, this war is described in Ezekiel is similar to war described in 14th chapter of Zechariah, Haftarah reading on 1st day of Sukkot. Jesus finally takes over world to rule after Armageddon battle. Almighty God Himself Fights for Israel. God sends wildfire, hailstone blizzards, hurricane, avalanche, floods, tycoons, earthquakes, rain downpours, sulphur, thunder, lightning, blood, darkness, heatwaves, plagues in Job 38:22, 23; Ezekiel 38:19, 22; Habakkuk 3:10, 11; Zechariah 14:12. And in Zechariah Gentiles who survive the war against Israel will be required to keep Sukkot annually by coming up to Holy City of Jerusalem to worship the Lord.” Then the survivors from all nations that attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles Sukkot. In Zechariah Gentiles who survive the war against Israel will be required to keep Sukkot annually by coming up to the Holy City of Jerusalem to worship the Lord.”Then the survivors from all nations that attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles Sukkot. Any one on earth who goes not to Jerusalem to worship King Jesus, God Almighty has no rain according to Zechariah 14:16.
There will be resurrection of God’s Power in Jesus’ to win battle of Har-magedon. History shows God’s enemies fall as God’s Truth always prevails. Christian believers have certainty of Christ’s Victory as King Jesus Returns to Rule. So some anti – Christ kings gather together against Christ for a final assault on Israel. In Armageddon battle, cup filled with wine fury of God’s wrath in Revelation 16:19 is delivered to God’s enemies. Armaggeddon, Har-magedon refers to struggle between right, wrong. The conflict between world forces of darkness and the forces of light. The faithful elect who follow the True King of kings and Lord of lords will be saved so souls preserved. Nations saved will walk in light of Christ and God is in New City of Jerusalem. In Revelation 21:21, the city had no sun, or moon shining for Glory of God Lightens city and Lamb is light after Armageddon.
The nations saved shall walk in the light of God. The kings of the earth do bring glory and honour to Christ. 25 The gates of it shall not be shut at all by day for there shall be no night there. 26 They shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into the city of God. 27 There shall in no wise enter anything that defiles. Saved kings and queens of the earth bring glory, honour, splendour into God’s Kingdom in Jerusalem. Will gaze on the beauty of God and marvel at God’s Majestic Glory. Royal priesthood saved kings and queens bring gifts of value and beauty presented in worship to God. Important, take Adonai Elohim Jehovah extremely seriously, personally in one’s own private life. You are fully informed of God’s plans and purpose so prepare to be on God’s Side. So directly accountable to God through Jesus Christ so be saved under God’s terms and conditions guaranteed Eternal life. And the Lamb Jesus Christ Reigns in their midst in the city of Jerusalem like Queen Sheba of Ethiopia honoured King Solomon among renown kings and queens. Those who follow and Obey God will survive as evidence of 2 categories of the faithful. Those who reside in city glorified as saints and those who reside outside city saved during tribulation. The anti-Christ and followers finally overthrown, defeated forever. God takes back control of the earth through Christ the Lamb of God. Armageddon term refers to end – time battle of world but not exclusively in plains of Megiddo. Due to battle 1/3 of city of Jerusalem and trees burnt. And 7000 men from city killed God’s enemies totally wiped out and destroyed forever. Survivors rejoice and worship God with saints, chosen 144,000, plus countless multitudes new converts from all the nations languages and tribes.
So the battle of Armageddon is a double-edged sword which brings salvation to God’s Children but death and destruction to God’s enemies. And Christ remains in Jerusalem forever and ever to Rule and Reign in Perfect Peace. God takes back control of earth through Christ Lamb of God. Armageddon as a general term refers to end of the world, but not exclusively to battle in the plain of Megiddo. 1/3 of city, trees burnt, and 7000 men from city are killed plus God’s enemies. Survivors rejoice and worship God with all saints, chosen 144,000, new converts. Christ remains in Jerusalem forever and ever to Rule and Reign in Perfect Peace. God Comes to Dwell in a New Jerusalem Perfect World. Do not mock or doubt and ridicule word of God through unbelief because ignorance is no excuse before God. Remember the Truth of God you know will set you free in Jesus Name forever in eternity.
