The Battle of Armageddon precedes the Millennium

Posted by gospelclips on June 26, 2009

The Day of the Lord culminates with the Battle of Armageddon.  It is the Final Judgment upon the Nations (Pagans) where the Beast and the False prophet are defeated.  It precedes the Millennium.  It is not the same as the Battle of Gog and Magog at the End of the Millennium.

The Day of the Lord culminates with the Battle of Armageddon. It is the Final Judgment upon the Nations (Pagans) where the Beast and the False prophet are defeated. It precedes the Millennium. It is not the same as the Battle of Gog and Magog at the End of the Millennium.

Rev 16:12-16 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river, Euphrates and it’s waters dried up to prepare the way for the Kings from the East. Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out from the mouth of the Dragon, the mouth of the Beast and the mouth of the False Prophet. They are the spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world to gather them for Battle on the Great day of the God Almighty. Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him so that he may not go naked and shamefully exposed. Then they gathered the kings together to that place that is called in Hebrew ‘Armageddon’

This is the only place in scripture where the word ‘Armageddon’ is used. It is one of the Bowl Judgments on the Nations. It is completed by the end of the Seventh Bowl. Rev 16:17-21 The Bowl judgements are poured out at the end of the Great Tribulation upon the Nations of the Earth after the Church has been raptured. This is where the Beast and the False Prophet are defeated. The Battle of Armageddon is the Last Event to take place before the Millennium starts.

Some Christians (post-millennialists) believe that the final rebellion of Satan at the End of the Millennium (Rev 20:7-10) is the Battle of Armageddon. Premillenialists see this battle at Gog and Magog as a separate event at the End of the Millennium where Satan is finally thrown into the Lake of Fire after being given one last chance (it nevertheless has many similarities to the Battle of Armageddon in which Christ leads an army of redeemed believers to strike down the Kings of the Earth, the Beast and the False Prophet. Rev 19:11-21)

The battle of Armageddon involves the Beast and the False prophet and the Kings of the Earth. Rev 16:12-16

The battle of Gog and and Magog does not involve the Beast and the False Prophet. Rev 20:7-10 It is therefore, not the same as the battle of Armageddon.

The battle of Armageddon takes place at the End of the Great Tribulation before the Millennium Starts.

  1. Ezekiel 38 begs to differ. The “they will not pollute my name any more” puts Gog/Magog post millennial. Ezekiel is speaking to the NEW JERUSALEM. Also consider chapter 37’s valley of dry bones coming to life, to form an army. This video may help:

  2. The battle of Gog and Magog is at the end of the Millennium and Ezekiel 38 does concern this battle. The battle of Gog and Magog, however, is not the battle of Armageddon, The Battle of Armageddon occurs just prior to the Millennium at the end of the Great Tribulation. The battle of Armageddon is where the Beast and The False prophet are judged and thrown into the lake of fire. Armageddon is also where the nations are judged and divided into the Sheep and the Goats. The survivors of Armageddon go into the Millennium as the nations that surround Gods people (the 144000 Jews sealed when the rapture takes place). The Beast and the False prophet are not to be seen at the Battle of Gog and Magog. The battle of Gog and Magog is not the same as the battle of Armageddon. They are separated by 1000 years. It is satan who is released from his chains who is finally defeated and thrown into the Lake of Fire at the Battle of Gog and Magog.
