Part Two – Armageddon

With the Russian / Muslim Alliance destroyed and Antichrist in firm control of the Middle East, a signal will be sent to the millions of Asia. An army of 200 million will be raised by the "Kings Of The East" will cross the Euphrates for the Battle Of Armageddon. God says: "I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle and … THEN shall the LORD go forth and fight against those nations… and His feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the East" (Zech.14:1-4, Rev.9:13-21; Rev.16:12-16).

The Second Coming Of Christ

Immediately after the Great Tribulation, Christ will come with His saints in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory, and "Every eye shall see Him, and they also who pierced Him (Israel); and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him" (Rev 1:7).

Judgment of the Living Nations

All nations that survive the Tribulation will be gathered before Christ’s Throne of Glory at Jerusalem and divided, the sheep from the goats, depending on their attitude toward Israel, now God’s repentant people. The Sheep (the saved nations) go alive into Christ’s Millennial Kingdom, and the Goats (the unsaved nations) will be consigned to "everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels" (Matt.24:29,30, 25:31-46).

The Millennial Kingdom

The Millennial Kingdom will last for 1000 years, and during this time the world which survives the Great Tribulation and the judgment of the nations will experience incredible blessing (Rev.20:1-7). The Lord Jesus will reign from the Throne of David in Jerusalem, and Israel will administer the Law of the Lord from a glorious Temple where the light of God’s presence will continually shine (Isa.2:1-5; 60:19-22; 66:18-21; Ezek.43: 7-9). The Gentile nations that survive the Tribulation will go up to the Temple in Jerusalem to hear God’s Word and to worship the LORD of HOSTS (Ps. 72:8-11; Rev.20: 1-7; Zech. 14: 16-21).
