The armies of heaven follow Christ when he comes to strike down the Nations

I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war.  His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.  He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.  The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.  Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.  On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords.

Rev 19:11-16

In Jude, it says that Christ returns with his ‘Holy Ones’ to judge the ungodly.

In Revelation Ch 17, the Lamb will be accompanied by his called, chosen and faithful followers when he wages war against the 10 kings and the beast.

Here Christ is pictured riding a white horse, eyes blazing like fire, wearing many crowns and dressed in a robe dipped in blood.  His name known only to himself.  None other than the word of God.  Coming out of his mouth was a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations.

The armies of heaven were following him.  Dressed in white linen and mounted on white horses.  These are none other than the believers who appear in heaven earlier in the chapter and are now returning with Christ as his warrior bride to judge the nations.

The Nations are the Godless, Pagans or unbelieving Gentiles who rejected the Gospel.

Some of them were kind to Christians and refused to worship the beast and receive his mark.  Many accepted the mark of the Beast and persecuted the Christians.

God will separate them into the Sheep and the Goats.

The Sheep, who were kind to Christians, will be rewarded and allowed to continue to live as the Nations on Earth during the Millennium and in Eternity as well (provided that they do not rebel when Satan is released at the end of the Millennium).  They will not be part of the New Jerusalem but will be able to enter it once a year.  They will need the leaves of the Tree of Life for healing.

The Battle of Armageddon is the sixth bowl. Christ returns with an army of Believers to Strike down the Nations and separate them into the Sheep and the Goats.

Legend1

The Harvest at the End of the Age. A Great Multitude of believers (Wheat) are raptured to be with Christ when he comes on the clouds at the Seventh Trumpet at the End of the Great Tribulation. This co-incides with the First Resurrection which is when dead believers (also wheat) are raised to be with Christ. False Christians (Weeds) are also harvested from the Earth at this time by an angle in charge of the fire and they are thrown in to Hell for eternal punishment. The Nations are left on Earth and are divided in to the Sheep and the Goats according to how they treated God’s people. Those that persecuted God’s people (the Goats) are thrown into the Lake of Fire. Those that were Kind to God’s people receive a reward. They will become the Nations on Earth during the Millennium and in Eternity if they do not rebel against God when Satan is released form his prison at the End of the Millennium.

A great multitude appears in Heaven. Then there is a Wedding. Then Christ, riding a white horse, leads an army of believers to strike down the Beast and the False Prophet and the Kings of the Earth and their armies composed of people who bare the Mark of the Beast (The Goats)

A great multitude appears in Heaven. Then there is a Wedding. Then Christ, riding a white horse, leads an army of believers to strike down the Beast and the False Prophet and the Kings of the Earth and their armies composed of people who bare the Mark of the Beast (The Goats). The Nations will be separated into the Sheep ( who were kind to God’s people) and the Goats (who persecuted God’s people). The Sheep will receive an inherritance prepared for them since the foundation of the Earth and the Goats will be thrown into hell. Zechariah Ch 14 tells us that there will be people amongst the Nations (Pagans) who survive the Battle of Armageddon. The sheep nations who are alive when Christ returns will probably be these people. They will become the Nations in eternity if they are in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

Revelation 19 


Hallelujah!

1After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting:

“Hallelujah!

Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,

2for true and just are his judgments.

He has condemned the great prostitute

who corrupted the earth by her adulteries.

He has avenged on her the blood of his servants.”

3And again they shouted:

“Hallelujah!

The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever.”

4The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne. And they cried:

“Amen, Hallelujah!”

5Then a voice came from the throne, saying:

“Praise our God,

all you his servants,

you who fear him,

both small and great!”

6Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:

“Hallelujah!

For our Lord God Almighty reigns.

7Let us rejoice and be glad

and give him glory!

For the wedding of the Lamb has come,

and his bride has made herself ready.

8Fine linen, bright and clean,

was given her to wear.”

(Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.)

9Then the angel said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!’” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”

10At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

The Rider on the White Horse

11I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. 12His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. 13He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. 14The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. 15Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.”a He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. 16On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:

king of kings and lord of lords.

17And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, “Come, gather together for the great supper of God, 18so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and mighty men, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, small and great.”

19Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse and his army. 20But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. 21The rest of them were killed with the sword that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.

The Sheep and the Goat Judgment on the Nations is based on works. This is how God will Judge the Nations after the Church has been raptured.

Posted by gospelclips on August 21, 2012

The Sheep and the Goat Judgment on the Nations is based on works. This is how God will Judge the Nations after the Church has been raptured.

The Sheep and the Goat Judgment is not to separate the believers from the non-believers. It does not determine who goes to Heaven or not. Those who are going to Heaven to be with Christ will already be with Him at that point in time.

Whether we go to Heaven or not depends more on whether we believe, whether we have repented and whether we have accepted Christ as Lord and Savior.

All believers, dead and alive, will go to be with Christ when He comes in the clouds and they will remain with Him forever.

If you are part of the rapture or the first resurrection then you will reign with Christ during the Millennium and then be part of the New Jerusalem in Eternity. You will stand before the Judgment seat of Christ and you will be rewarded for the things that you have done in the body.

Living Pagans (Non Believers) will be left behind on the Earth. They will be judged according to their works. They will have no part in the New Jerusalem and they will not be with Christ during the Millennium even if they are the Sheep Nations.

Dead Pagans (Non believers) will not be resurrected until the end of the Millennium. They will be Judged at the Great White Throne according to their works. If their names are in the Lamb’s book of life, they will not be thrown into the Lake of Fire. They will become the Nations in Eternity. If anybody worshipped the beast or took his mark, their names will not be in the Lamb’s book of life and they will be throne into the Lake of Fire.

The Sheep and the Goat judgment is based on deeds. Salvation is based on faith. The Faithful Believers (Wheat) will have already been redeemed (raptured or resurrected) to be with Christ when the Sheep and the Goat Judgment takes place.
The Sheep and the Goat Judgment is a judgment on the Nations (Gentiles / Pagans) to separate them into the Sheep (who were kind to God’s people and did not accept the Mark of the Beast) and the Goats (who persecuted God’s people and are most likely the same people who take the Mark of the Beast).
The Greek word for Nations is “Ethnos” and is usually translated as “Gentile”, “pagan” or “Nations” designating – foreigners who are not converts.
The Bible tells us that Christ will return to judge the Nations of the Earth who are alive with an army of Holy Ones (Jude, Revelations 19). He will Judge the living Pagans (living non-believers) and separate them into the Sheep and the Goats. God’s people will be raptured or resurrected in the twinkling of an eye just before this occurs. False Christians (wolves in sheeps clothing) or Tares (weeds) will go to Hell.

The Battle of Armageddon is the Sheep and the Goat Judgment on the Nations. It occurs on the Day of the Lord.

Posted by gospelclips on August 3, 2012

The Battle of Armageddon is the Sheep and the Goat Judgment.  It is the last thing to occur before the Millennium starts.  It is the Day of the Lord.  It is part of the Seventh Trumpet.  Christ comes in the clouds just before this to rapture the church to be with Him. Then He leads them back to Earth on a White Horse to defeat the Beast and the False Prophet and the Kings of the Earth and their armies of people bearing the Mark of the Beast (The Sheep)

The Church is raptured before Armageddon begins

Posted by gospelclips on July 2, 2009

Revelations Chapter 14 & 15: There will be two harvests at the End of the Great Tribulation leaving behind the Nations of the Earth to suffer God's Wrath.

Judgment of the Nations (Pagans) on the Day of the Lord

Posted by gospelclips on June 27, 2009

The Battle of Armageddon is not to be confused with the Final Rebellion of Satan at the end of the Millennium

The Battle of Armageddon is not to be confused with the Final Rebellion of Satan at the end of the Millennium

The final rebellion of Satan in Revelations 20:7-10 at the end of the Millennium is NOT the battle of Armageddon. The battle of Armageddon is when the Beast and the False Prophet are defeated. Satan is bound for a thousand years and thrown into the Abyss. After the 1000 years are over, Satan is released for a short period but rebels once again. Fire comes down from heaven and defeats the nations that surround the camp of God’s people and Satan is thrown into the Lake of Fire which is the Second Death. This Rebellion at the end of the Millennium is not Armageddon. The Lake of Fire is where the Beast and the False Prophet were thrown when they were defeated at Armageddon.

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.

The Battle of Armageddon and the Day of the Lord

On the Day of the Lord, Christ will return with an army of Believers to strike down the Nations, including The Beast, The False Prophet and the Kings of the Earth – THIS IS THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON

Jesus returns at the End of the 1260 day Great Tribulation before the Millennium starts. The Church is raptured before God pours out His wrath on the Nations that are left behind. The Battle of Armageddon is the Last bowl of God’s Wrath. The battle of Armageddon is where the Beast and the False prophet are defeated and the Nations of the Earth are struck down.
