The Battle of Armageddon Written by Michael Bradley
This will be last and final event of Great Tribulation. The Bible says that immediately after Tribulation occurs, Jesus will return back to us for His second coming! Here are 2 key verses on this battle and how it all gets set up in first place.
1. This 1st verse is very, very interesting. It implies that Antichrist does not have full control over entire world. It says that he hears "news" from east and north that trouble him. This news causes him to go out in "great fury" to annihilate many. My guess is that China and Russia do not want to come under his rule and they are setting up to come against him. Here is verse:
"But news from east and north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many. And he shall plant tents of his palace between seas and glorious holy mountains; and yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him." (Daniel 11:44-45) This verse tells us that he is going to meet his end and that no one is going to be able to help him. As you will see further down, Jesus is one who will be putting an end to him - so this verse is showing us that this event will lead up to battle of Armageddon.
2. In this next verse, word Armageddon is actually used to describe place where this battle is going to take place. Armageddon is plain of Megiddo which forms only pass through mountains which enters from North and South of Israel. It is in northern Israel and it is a natural pass from Mediterranean Sea through mountains and interior of Israel.
End Time Events and the 2nd Coming of JesusWritten by Michael Bradley
In part 1 of this series of end time articles, I am going to go ahead and outline all of main events that will be occurring that will be leading up to 2nd coming of Jesus to our earth. This will be a basic overview of main end time events. I will then go into additional parts giving you a bit more detail into some of these specific events. The Bible once again very specifically and very explicitly lays out exactly what is going to happen before Jesus returns back to us for His second coming.
The problem is that all verses pertaining to second coming of Jesus to our earth are all scattered throughout Bible. You thus have to search them out and then match them up to be able to see exactly what is coming down road - just like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. God always seems to want to make you hunt and search for all of knowledge that is in Bible. Seek and then you will find. The subject of revelations and end time events is no exception.
I will keep this article focused on basic main events so as to give you a "roadmap" as to what may be getting ready to come our way. This subject can get very detailed due to all incredible events that will take place before Jesus comes back for His second coming.
