1Thess 4:13-18

13Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18Therefore encourage one another with these words.

The Lord will come down from heaven with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and the trumpet call of God (the seventh trumpet) and the dead in Christ will rise first (first resurrection) and after that those in Christ who are still alive and left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meed the Lord in the air.  

The Lord will later return with his faithful followers to strike down the nations with a sword that proceeds out of his mouth.

2Thess 2:1-12

1Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, 2not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. 3Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

5Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

When the Lord Jesus Christ comes, we (the believers) will be gathered to him.  That day will not come until the man of lawlessness has been revealed and the rebellion has occurred.  He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or worshipped.  He will set himself up in God’s temple proclaiming himself to be God.

The Lord Jesus will over throw him with the breath of his mouth and destroy him by the splendor of his coming.   Jesus will be accompanied by his called, chosen and faithful followers which he has gathered to himself.

1Cor 15:51-52

51Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

The last trumpet heralds the Day of the Lord when Jesus returns with his faithful followers to defeat the beast and the false prophet and strike down the nations.  

The Church will be raptured and the dead in Christ will be raised (first resurrection) in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, as soon as the seventh trumpet sounds.

The seventh trumpet will span 75 days, during which God will pour out the seven bowls of his wrath upon the nations of the Earth who are gathered at Armageddon.  This is the third woe.

Jude 1:14-16

Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” These people are grumblers and faultfinders; they follow their own evil desires; they boast about themselves and flatter others for their own advantage.

The Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones to judge the nations of the Earth and to convict all of them of the ungodly acts they have done in their ungodliness and the defiant words of ‘ungodly sinners’.

In other words, Jesus is coming with an army of  believers to judge the ungodly.  Zachariah tells us that there will be some pagans who survive the battle of Armageddon.  There will be ‘nations’ on Earth during the Millennium and there will be ‘Nations’ outside the New Jerusalem in Eternity.

Rev 17:12-14

The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast.  They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast.  They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.

The beast and the kings of the Earth will wage war against the Lamb but the Lamb will triumph over them.  The lamb will have with him his called, chosen and faithful followers who were raptured / resurrected 30 days prior to the abomination that causes desolation being set up.

“The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast.  They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast.  They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”

Rev 17:12-14

This is a reference to the Battle of Armageddon.

The Beast, the False Prophet and the Kings of the Earth will wage war against the Lamb but the Lamb will be victorious because he is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  This term is used in Revelation chapter 19 which is also a reference to the Battle of Armageddon.

As in Jude and Revelation chapter 19, the Lamb is accompanied by his called, chosen and faithful followers and he comes to judge the ungodly for the ungodly things that they have done.

Jude 1:14-16

The Lord is coming with thousand upon thousands of his holy ones to judge the ungodly.

God will judge ungodly sinners of all the defiant words they have spoken against him.  He will convict them of all the ungodly acts that they have committed in their ungodliness.

Here Christ brings with him his ‘Holy Ones’ to judge the ungodly sinners who remain on earth after the rapture of the Church.

These ungodly sinners  will be the Nations standing before Christ at his Second Coming.

The Holy ones that Christ brings with him will be the armies of heaven, the redeemed saints.

The Nations will be divided into the Sheep and the Goats according to what they have done.  This is a judgement based on works.

Christians will be raptured or resurrected to be with Christ when he comes on the clouds. After a celebration in heaven and a marriage feast, Christ will return with his army of believers to judge the ungodly nations before the Millennium begins.

Christians are saved by faith but even Christians will be judged and rewarded according to what they have done in the body.

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.

What happens to those who worship the Beast and receive his mark at the Battle of Armageddon?

Posted by gospelclips on August 6, 2012

A diagram showing what will happen to those who worship the Beast and receive his mark at the Battle of Armageddon

Christ will lead an Army of Believers to strike down the Beast and the False prophet and the Kings of the Earth and their army of people who worshipped the Beast and received his Mark. All who receive the mark of the Beast and worship his Image will go to the Lake of Fire.

Rev 19:11-21

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.

This is the Battle of  Armageddon – The Sheep and the Goat Judgment –  On the Day of the Lord.  The Church will have been raptured at this point.  Christ will in fact lead them back to defeat the Beast and the False prophet and the Kings of the Earth and their Armies with the Mark of the Beast.

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.
