Before this the Antichrist fights 3 Wars after the Peace Covenant
War number four
“At the time of the end (the end of the tribulation) the king of the South (the leader of the Middle East political economic region) will engage him in battle, and the king of the North (the Antichrist) will storm out against him . . He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood. He will also invade the Beautiful Land (Israel)
Many countries will fall, but Edom and Moab (the present day country of Jordan) and the chief of the children of Ammon (King of Jordan who will most likely still be King Abdullah II) shall escape out of his hand.” (Daniel 11:40-43) Jordan has been welcoming the poor: first the Palestinians, then the Iraqis and now the Syrian refugees. “He that pities the poor lends unto the Lord; and what he has given will He will pay him again.” (Proverbs 19:17) So God will pay Jordan in protection and will keep her benevolent Royalty safe, because they have been a safe haven for the refugees, the poor and the persecuted.
Reports from the east and north
“But reports from the east and the north will alarm him, and he will set out in a great rage to destroy, and annihilate many.“ (Daniel 11:44)
‘reports from the east’ – The Sixth Trumpet of the tribulation announces a vast army of 200,000,000 arising from the east.“the number of the mounted troops was two hundred million. I heard their number” (Revelation 9:16) No country can support an army this size. This army refers to the uprising of the Islam, preparing with the ‘Madhi’ for the final Jihad to rid the world of the ‘Dajjal’ (Antichrist) with his allies of ‘kafirs’ (non-believers) and ‘mushriks’ (polytheists) and to implement the Sharia Law.
“reports from the north” – Israel’s allies prepare to attack the Antichrist as they oppose his invasion of Israel. He cannot handle both enemies at the same time so “in a great rage” decides to eliminate the major enemy from the north by a nuclear strike and he presses the red button “to destroy and annihilate many.” Thus Babylon is annihilated, more on this later.
Moves of the Antichrist
He moves his headquarters to Jerusalem. “He shall set up his palace between the seas (the Dead Sea and the Mediterranean) in the glorious holy mountain.” (Daniel 11:45)
He kills the two true prophets who are in Jerusalem. (when they have finished their testimony, the beast (the Antichrist) shall overcome them and kill them.” (Revelation 11:7)
He will set himself up in the Jewish temple declaring that he is ‘God’. “He will oppose and exalt himself over everything that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.” (2Thessalonians 2:4)
Rapture and the nuclear war
“and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: (Nuclear disaster) and at that time your people shall be delivered (Rapture), every one that shall be found written in the book.” (Daniel 12:1)
When the atom bombs are exploding, the 7th and last trumpet of the tribulation sounds to announce the return of Jesus to gather together his children in an event called “the Rapture” to His Marriage Feast. Aren’t you glad to get out of this insane asylum?
The trumpet simultaneously announces the aftereffects of the Nuclear war.
The following is included as the Bible goes into great detail of what happens next, while the believers in Jesus have gone up to the Marriage Feast of the Lamb.
“And the ten horns (the ten political economic regions) which you saw on the beast, These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast (the Antichrist) these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.” (Rev.17:13,16,17)
Thus Babylon is annihilated. “She was dressed in purple colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. Her name MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.”
These are the people slain or killed in wars perpetrated by money making greed and lust for power, but especially all those people killed during the Great Tribulation.
“Pay her back double for what she has done. Mix her a double portion from her own cup. – She shall be utterly burned with fire. . . Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is your judgment come.” How much she has glorified herself and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: . .in one hour so great riches is come to nothing.” (Revelation 18)
“Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.” (Zechariah 14:12)
Will we ever learn?
Who or what is Babylon?
The majority of eschatology teachers believe Babylon to be the USA, while others assume it to be the complete capitalistic western society.
Why don’t you decide yourself after reading the following verses:
“See how the faithful city has become a harlot! She once was full of justice; righteousness used to dwell in her – but now murderers! . . . Your rulers are companions of thieves; they all love bribes and chase after gifts. The mighty man will become firewood and his work a spark; both will burn together, with no-one to quench the fire. . .Those who forsake the Lord will perish.” (Isaiah 1:21,23,31,28) Who does this sound like to you?
“I will send a fire on Magog” Magog is Russia. Probably a retaliatory strike against Russia prior to Babylon’s nuclear annihilation? “and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles” (Ezekiel 39:6) Could this possibly be UK, NZ, Australia?
