The place called “Armageddon, or har-megiddo”, is believed to be a small hill located near the VALLEY of Megiddo in the northern part of modern-day Israel. This area was initially given to Israel’s tribe of Manasseh as an inheritance in the Promised Land (Joshua 17:11). The first part of the Hebrew word “Armageddon” is har (#H2022), which means a mountain. The Megiddo part of Armageddon means “cut off” or slaughter. The place “Megiddo” is actually a valley, not a mountain. Some Bible translations use the word ‘plain’ instead of the word ‘valley’. The Megiddo valley is also called Plain of Esdraelon or Plain of Jezreel. Throughout history, armies have fought countless battles in that region.
The word Armageddon is frequently used to label the entire period (GREAT TRIBULATION) starting from when the kings of the earth begin to gather together to fight against Jesus the MESSIAH until His literal return and victorious war over the forces of evil. It is after this victory that JESUS Christ sets up His Millennial Kingdom on the earth.
If you watched the video above, Archbishop Vigano is calling for an anti-globalist alliance; however, he must understand that as TYRANNICAL and WICKED as the New World Order is, it is PROPHESIED to come into existence for the final 3.5 years of man’s self-rule on earth (Great Tribulation). What is written WILL come to pass. We can pray for delays. We can and should pray for mercy, and for God (YHWH) to not allow ALL of their wicked plans to come to pass, but no amount of prayer or human intervention can stop what has been written in God’s Holy Book (Bible). End-times Prophecy WILL come to pass. The question is…where will YOU be when it does? God’s people are NOT appointed to WRATH.
God RESCUES HIS PEOPLE…
1 Thessalonians 5:9: For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Hebrews 7:25: Therefore He (Jesus Christ) is also able to save forever those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
- God rescued Noah and His family by placing them in the ARK of protection
- God removed Lot and his family from Sodom by sending angels to help them FLEE God’s wrath (Sodom and Gomorrah),
- God has promised that His people are NOT appointed to wrath. God is preparing a Divine Rescue, THE RAPTURE….for HIS PEOPLE.
The antichrist will only be given permission (by GOD/YHWH) to lead the “New World Order” for a total of 3.5 years (42 months/1260 days). This is also known as the time of “Great Tribulation” and is considered the WRATH of GOD (YHWH). When God removes His Hand of protection over this earth and “gives it over” to that which it THINKS it wants (a reprobate mind/world WITHOUT GOD (YHWH/JESUS CHRIST)), evil will be UNRESTRAINED, and the DYSTOPIAN NEW WORLD ORDER will come to FULL POWER.
The time of Great Tribulation will be the most terrible time in ALL of human HIStory. God has been very patient with us sinful humans; but His patience will eventually run out. At the time of Great Tribulation, the cup of man’s iniquity (purposeful sin) will be full, and God will begin pouring out HIS WRATH.
God’s wrath will include SEVEN painful TRUMPET judgments followed BY SEVEN even more painful BOWL judgments.
At the sounding of the SEVENTH TRUMPET🎺🎺🎺🎺🎺🎺🎺 God (YHWH) will begin pouring out His seven bowl judgments. 🥣🥣🥣🥣🥣🥣🥣 Each of these bowl judgments increase in severity as we grow closer to the second coming of Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Rapture will have taken place by the time that the Trumpets and bowls of wrath are poured out.
At the point when the SIXTH BOWL of WRATH is poured out, the return of Jesus Christ is IMMINENT. The sixth bowl judgment includes the drying up of the Euphrates River so that the kings from the East can CROSS OVER.
There is a popular misconception widely taught by many bible teachers that the kings from the East (kings FROM the rising of the sun) seen in the SIXTH bowl of wrath (REVELATION 16) lead a 200-million-man army that will fight against Jesus Christ in the battle (WAR) of Armageddon. This teaching goes on to say that the kings from the East are Russia and China. But is this TRUE??
The problem with this interpretation is that the 200-million-horsemen army is NOT part of the SIXTH BOWL of wrath seen in REVELATION 16. The 200-million-horsemen are actually seen EXCLUSIVELY in Revelation 9 as part of the SIXTH TRUMPET. The word “horsemen” is only used this one time in scripture (Revelation 9 – SIXTH TRUMPET) and likely describes a supernatural, demonic army😈 – NOT a “human army” (Not Russia/China). Perhaps there is confusion because the Euphrates River is mentioned in both the sixth Trumpet and the sixth bowl of wrath.
The SIXTH TRUMPET🎺……
Revelation 9:13: Then the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God (tfj: A place of God’s mercy), 14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet🎺, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.”
15 And the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released, so that they would kill a third of mankind. 💀
16 The number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them.
17 And this is how I saw in my vision the horses and those who sat on them: the riders had breastplates the color of fire, of hyacinth, and of brimstone; and the heads of the horses are like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths *came fire and smoke and brimstone.
18 A third of mankind was killed by these three plagues, by the fire, the smoke, and the brimstone which came out of their mouths.
The SIXTH TRUMPET 🎺
- Four (fallen) angels who had been bound at the Euphrates River are RELEASED
- Four (fallen) angels have been prepared to kill 1/3 of mankind on an appointed hour, day and month
- The number of armies of the horsemen were two hundred million
- 1/3 of mankind is killed by the fire, smoke and brimstone that comes out of the horsemen’s mouths.
Nowhere in the SIXTH TRUMPET (above) do we see the kings from the East mentioned. The Kings from the East are not seen until the sixth bowl of wrath which is part of the SEVENTH TRUMPET (Rev. 16).
Note: In the book of Revelation, there are 7 seals, 7 trumpets. and 7 bowls of God’s wrath.
- When the seventh SEAL is broken, the seven TRUMPET judgments begin.
- When the SEVENTH Trumpet sounds, the seven BOWLS of God’s wrath begins.
- When the seventh bowl of God’s wrath is poured out, JESUS CHRIST RETURNS.
These three types of judgments (seals, trumpets and bowls) move like a grand symphony becoming more and more intense until we reach the crescendo – THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST.
When the SIXTH TRUMPET IS COMPLETE, the SEVENTH TRUMPET WILL SOUND. The SEVENTH TRUMPET will initiate God’s SEVEN BOWLS OF WRATH.
Revelation 16 details the seven bowls of God’s wrath that are poured out when the SEVENTH TRUMPET sounds. As we read Revelation 16 in its entirety, we see that the seven last plagues (bowls of God’s wrath) that pour out after the seventh Trumpet is sounded
- Bowl #1: 🥣Plague of boils
- Bowl #2: 🥣Sea turns to blood
- Bowl #3: 🥣Rivers and springs turn to blood
- Bowl #4: 🥣Scorched from the sun
- Bowl #5: 🥣Darkness and pain
- Bowl #6: 🥣Euphrates dried up
- Bowl #7: 🥣Earth utterly shaken, 100 lb hail
Because our topic is on ARMAGEDDON and the “kings from the East”, we will focus primarily on the SIXTH and SEVENTH bowls of GOD’S WRATH – THE ULTIMATE LEADUP TO THE GRAND FINALE, the RETURN of JESUS CHRIST!
The SIXTH BOWL OF WRATH: 🥣
Revelation 11: 15 Then the seventh angel sounded🎺 (seventh trumpet): And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!”
Revelation 16:1: Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God on the earth.”
Revelation 16:12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl 🥣on the great river, the Euphrates; and its water was dried up, so that the way would be prepared for the kings from the east.
Revelation 16:13: And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon (Satan), and out of the mouth of the beast (antichrist), and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs 🐸
14 for they are spirits of demons😈, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the entire world, to gather them together for the war of the great day of God, the Almighty. 15 (“Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and people will not see his shame.”)
16 And they gathered them together to the place which in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon.
The SIXTH BOWL OF WRATH 🥣…
- The Euphrates River is dried up to make way for the kings from the East
- Three DEMON spirits like FROGS come out of the mouths (words) of the false prophet, antichrist, and Satan. (unholy “trinity”)🐸
- This demonic “unholy trinity” will pull together ALL the kings of the earth to fight against YHWH and HIS SON JESUS CHRIST.
- This final war between good and evil is called ARMAGEDDON
The kings from the East for whom the Euphrates is being “dried up” are NOT part of the “kings of the entire world” that are gathering together (Armageddon) to wage war against Jesus Christ in Revelation 16:14.
What is Armageddon? The WAR of Armageddon is the culmination of mankind and the fallen angels’ REBELLION against YHWH (God). During this time-period (Great Tribulation) the unholy trinity and “kings of the earth” band together (NEW WORLD ORDER) to try to exterminate every vestige of Jesus Christ from the earth. They are going to TRY to drive YHWH (God) from the universe that HE created.
As the video above with Archbishop Vigano showed us…The “kings of the earth” (world leaders) are already working diligently to force the GLOBAL NEW WORLD ORDER on mankind. Currently they are working through DECEPTION and SUBTERFUGE🐍. They offer a “false light” (woke culture/climate change). They are planning a world WITHOUT YHWH and HIS SON JESUS CHRIST! Once their global dystopian vision comes to full power, they will no longer need subterfuge – they will use FORCE.
Through stolen elections and illegitimate means, the NEW WORLD ORDER has already placed their puppet leaders in many countries, including the United States. Through their global initiative this group (Chaldeans/shadow government) is secretly controlling
- The banking sector,
- Governments and nations,
- Medicine/Healthcare/”Big Pharma
- Nearly ALL mass media,
- Social Media (FB, Twitter, YouTube, etc.)
- Major Retail outlets
- Religious institutions,
- The entertainment industry,
- Global food supply and more.
The manmade PANDEMIC virus was part of the global takeover along with the forced “vaccine”, and green passports. In the very near future, they have planned the Great Reset that will include WWIII, a global financial collapse, the institution of a cashless society (blockchain), the elimination of all opposition and the very dystopian monitoring of all humanity. It is going to be really HORRIBLE when it all comes together! 😱
Revelation 13:4: So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast (new world order/antichrist)? Who is able to make war with him?”
In response to the question posed in Revelation 13:4…Who is able to make war with the BEAST (New World Order/antichrist global government)? I will tell you who is going to make war with the beast – JESUS CHRIST. 💕
The drying up of the Euphrates River (6th BOWL OF GOD’S WRATH) so that the kings FROM the East can CROSS OVER on dry land may sound FAMILIAR. This is because this is not the first time that God has dried up a river so that people can walk across on DRY LAND. In the days of Moses, God dried up the Red Sea, leading the HEBREW PEOPLE out of BONDAGE in EGYPT. To drive this imagery home, the very next verse in Revelation 16 (the chapter that details God’s seven bowls of wrath) is about the three unclean spirits like FROGS coming out of the unholy trinity… again bringing to mind the ten plagues of Egypt and the Red Sea Crossing.
As stated above, the seven bowls of wrath are very reminiscent of the ten plagues of Egypt that led to the EXODUS.
Revelation 16:13 And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon (Satan), and out of the mouth of the beast (antichrist), and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs 🐸
Exodus 8:1: And the Lord spoke to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord: “Let My people go, that they may serve Me. 2 But if you refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all your territory with frogs. 🐸
We do not believe that God is drying up the Euphrates River so that Russia and China can march a 200-million-man army across on “dry land” in an attempt to defeat God and Israel, which is what many Bible teachers actually teach! Modern weapons of war would not require the Euphrates River to be dried up in order for enemies to reach their target – Israel.
Biblical patterns show us that God dries up rivers…
- to lead HIS PEOPLE across on dry land (PASSOVER)
- as a means of DELIVERANCE (Red Sea) or RESTORATION (Jordan River).
The word “HEBREW” literally means “to CROSS OVER or to PASSOVER”.
What is the significance of the “Great River Euphrates”? The Euphrates is mentioned 21 times in the Bible and is first seen in Genesis 2:14 as one of the rivers that flowed out of the Garden of Eden. It is also the northern boundary to the PROMISED LAND of CANAAN. The Euphrates was a critical means of support for Israel’s enemies, Assyria and Babylon.
Genesis 15:18: On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates—
Historically, the scene of the sixth bowl of wrath reflects the capture of ancient Babylon by Cyrus the Persian (Daniel 5). According to the ancient historian Herodotus, on the night that King Belshazzar and his officials had a feast (c539BC), the Persians diverted the Euphrates and entered Babylon along the dry riverbed, CAPTURING the city by surprise.
Interestingly, there are last days prophecies indicating that YHWH (God) intends to dry up BOTH the EUPHRATES RIVER and the RIVER OF EGYPT, allowing people to pass through them on dry land.
The Euphrates and the River of Egypt ….
- SYMBOLIZE this present evil, FALLEN world
- REPRESENT the DIVIDING LINE between the fallen world and the PROMISED LAND.
The Bible actually CONFIRMS that God uses the TERM “Euphrates River” as a metaphor for an EVIL KING and KINGDOM that set itself AGAINST the GOD OF ISRAEL (YHWH/JESUS CHRIST). In the days of Hezekiah, King of Judah, the prophet Isaiah compares the Euphrates River to the “King of Assyria and all his glory”.
Isaiah 8:7-8: Now therefore, behold, the Lord is about to bring on them the strong and abundant waters of the Euphrates River,
That is, the king of Assyria and all his glory; (tfj: The Euphrates River is being used as a metaphor for the king of Assyria and his army)
And it will rise over all its channels and go over all its banks.
8 Then it will sweep on into Judah, it will overflow and pass through,
It will reach as far as the neck;
And the spread of its wings will fill the expanse of your land, Immanuel.
In the example above (Isaiah 8:7-8), King Hezekiah of Judah (715-686BC) was being told that the Assyrian army would sweep through Judah reaching up to JERUSALEM, comparing its destruction to a FLOOD from the EUPHRATES RIVER.
Another Biblical “name” for THE END OF DAYS ANTICHRIST is “The Assyrian“ (Micah 5:5-6). This does not necessarily mean that the antichrist will come from the literal land of Assyria (Iran/Turkey/Iraq). It probably means that the antichrist is empowered by the same “god” as the “god of Assyria” (the devil). 😈
In the Last Days Prophecies, God is going to DRY UP the “EUPHRATES RIVER” – a metaphor for defeating the antichrist’s evil, wicked KINGDOM.
Isaiah 11:15: And the Lord (YHWH) will utterly destroy
The tongue of the Sea of Egypt;
And He will wave His hand over the Euphrates River
With His scorching wind;
And He will strike it into seven streams
And make people walk over in dry sandals.
16 And there will be a highway from Assyria
For the remnant of His people who will be left,
Just as there was for Israel
On the day that they came up out of the land of Egypt.
YHWH (God) is going to remove all obstacles that would hinder His people from returning TO HIM from all parts of the world. As boundaries of the Promised Land, both of these Rivers SYMBOLIZE powerful, demonic, worldly kingdoms (Assyria and Egypt) that were great oppressors of God’s people.
The symbolic drying up of the Euphrates RIVER in Revelation 16:12 results in the collapse of MYSTERY BABYLON in the end time.
By SYMBOLICALLY drying up these rivers, God is creating a HIGHWAY for the remnant of His people to CROSS OVER from bondage in the kingdom of darkness to His Kingdom of Glorious Light, the Spiritual Promised Land. Even though the Rapture will have already taken place, God is making a way for MORE people to ENTER His Kingdom. At the time of the seven bowls of wrath, most people will not repent, but YHWH (God) ALWAYS has a REMNANT.
Isaiah 35:8: A highway shall be there, and a road,
And it shall be called the Highway of Holiness. 💕
The unclean shall not pass over it,
But it shall be for others. Whoever walks the road, although a fool,
Shall not go astray.
9 No lion shall be there,
Nor shall any ravenous beast go up on it;
It shall not be found there.
But the redeemed shall walk there,
10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return,
And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads. 💕
They shall obtain joy and gladness,
And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
Who are the “kings from the East” for whom YHWH is going to “dry up” the Euphrates River? The kings from the east in Revelation 16:12 are Christ and His redeemed army.
Revelation 5: 9 And they sang a new song, saying:
“You (JESUS CHRIST) are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain, ✝️
And have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
10 And have made us kings and priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth.”
At His second coming, Jesus christ will appear with His transformed army, “clothed in fine linen, white and clean”.
The “rumor” from the “north and the East” in daniel 11:44 that terrifies the antichrist is: jesus christ’s imminent return! The antichrist is a supernatural being indwelt and empowered by Satan. He is NOT terrified by Russia and China. When THE ANTICHRIST realizes that his time is EXTREMELY SHORT (Jesus’ return IS imminent), the antichrist will go out in great wrath to kill as many people as possible.
Daniel 11:44: But rumors from the East and from the North will terrify him (antichrist), and he will go out with great wrath to eliminate and annihilate many.
Revelation 12:12: For this reason, rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you with great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.”
Revelation 19:11: And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True (JESUS CHRIST), and in righteousness He judges and wages war. 12 His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many crowns; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. 💕
13 He (JESUS CHRIST) is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. ✝️💕
14 And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him (JESUS CHRIST) on white horses.
Jude 1:14: It was also about these people that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord has come with many thousands of His holy ones, 15 to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”
The seventh BOWL of WRATH — GLOBAL EARTHQUAKE AND MASSIVE HAIL
- MASSIVE Global Earthquake (Global Shaking)
- Cities of the Nations FALL
- Mystery Babylon receives God’s wrath and collapses
- Every “island and mountain” is out of their place (human governments collapse)
- 100 LB Hailstones
After the Euphrates River and the Egyptian rivers are symbolically dried up, God will pour out His SEVENTH BOWL OF WRATH, in preparation for the RETURN of JESUS CHRIST with His army of transformed saints, marking the DEFEAT of the antichrist’s dark global kingdom. HALLELUJAH!
Revelation 16:17 Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl upon the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple from the throne, saying, “It is done.” 18 And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since mankind came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty.
19 The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Babylon the great 😈was remembered in the sight of God, to give her the cup of the wine of His fierce wrath.
20 And every island fled, and no mountains were found. 21 And huge hailstones, weighing about a talent (100 lbs) each, *came down from heaven upon people; and people blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, because the hailstone plague *was extremely severe.
At His Return, Jesus Christ will throw the Beast (antichrist) and the False Prophet into the LAKE OF FIRE where they will remain for ALL ETERNITY. Those who have given themselves over to worship the beast will be a part of the “great supper of God”. 😱
Revelation 19:20: And the beast (antichrist) was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire, which burns with brimstone.
21 And the rest were killed with the sword (sword of the spirit/word of god) which came from the mouth of Him (jesus christ) who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh. 😱
In previous posts we outlined the difference between the two final destinies of mankind –
All of humanity who has EVER lived will be at one of these two feasts. The marriage Supper of the Lamb is a GLORIOUS occasion where Jesus Christ serves GOOD FOOD to His followers. 💕 ✝️ The Great Supper of God (YHWH) is for ALL those who REBEL against God’s Messiah, Jesus Christ, who is the ONLY rescue plan for FALLEN mankind. At the Great Supper of God, those who REBEL ARE the food (for the fallen angelic realm). 😱
If you would like to avoid the HORRORS of the Great Tribulation and the HORRIFYING “Great Supper of God”, NOT TO MENTION the eternal (FOREVER) suffering in the LAKE OF FIRE where all those who take the mark of the beast will end up, PLEASE CHOOSE JESUS CHRIST NOW! Jesus Christ IS God’s Messiah, His “Anointed One”. All mankind has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. All mankind would be destined to outer darkness and the lake of fire IF God had not sent His Only Son Jesus Christ to pay the debt of sin that we all owe. This is called SALVATION – God’s rescue plan FOR mankind.
If you would like to be saved from all of this horror and attend the Marriage supper of the Lamb, please check out our page “How to be saved”! It’s really quite SIMPLE to be saved. We simply recognize our fallen, sinful condition, REPENT and BELIEVE! ✝️
