Many Christians focus on the coming tribulation and the blessed hope in the rapture failing to bring forward in their minds and hearts, the long prophesied victory of our King. The armies of the South make their move first against Israel, then a pincer move by the armies of the North follows. A confederacy from the West led by the Antichrist joins the blood-letting. A surprise move ensues with the armies of the East which dwarf the former; this inflates the battle exponentially.
Enter the fifth army, led by the fifth horseman, the King of Kings, Lord of Lords with His army of Saints from heaven. His impact on the Valley of Jezreel is compared to the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God in Revelation 19:15. The enemies of Israel are crushed like grapes to the point where their blood rises to the horse bridles (Rev. 14:20). It is a victory over the dominion of Satan over the whole world since the corruption of man in the Garden of Eden. His oppression, lies and deception which torment the whole world, your family and you, ends utterly and completely. It is indeed finished.
An angel swiftly concludes the battle setting chains on Satan in the bottomless pit. A millennium of rest begins on earth with our beloved King Jesus ruling. Every knee will bow. He is worthy of praise and worship!
Many prophecies are being fulfilled declaring we are at the end of the age; but, more importantly, we are at the beginning of the rule of peace, joy, justice and righteousness. It is to be the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth for a thousand years.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in heaven.
Faint not. Be sober. Good times are ahead.
Revelation 19 (KJV)
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.
17 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.
20 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled:
