End-Time Battle of Armageddon Wipes Out Poisoned Wine

Monday, June 6th, 2011

Diligently search your Bible for evidence that the end-time battle of Armageddon will annihilate the very popular Trinity poisoned wine.

The Battle of Armageddon Will Be the Last Battle of This Age

Armageddon is the place where the last decisive battle between the forces of good and evil will be fought (Webster’s New World Dictionary). Unbelief concerning the end-time Battle of Armageddon runs rampant in today’s society. Talk about Armageddon isn’t very newsworthy so most people don’t pay much attention to it. Some don’t want talk about it because they don’t believe the battle Armageddon is coming, at least not during their lifetime.   Others just don’t  want to talk about the end-time. However, the end-time days are upon us and Satan is rallying his forces for the coming battle of Armageddon.

The establishment of Israel will lead to Armageddon. Many centuries ago Ezekiel prophesied that Israel would become a nation again. Thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel (Ezekiel 37:21-22). Early on God promised the land of Israel to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and their children’s children (Genesis 15:18, 26:3, 35:12). These prophecies came true when Israel became a nation in 1948. Some witnesses to the birth of Israel shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom (Matthew 16:28) at Armageddon.

God gave Zechariah an accurate and easily understood vision of the coming Battle of Armageddon. Behold, THE day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished: and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city (Zechariah 14:1-2). Zechariah’s vision of Armageddon will come to pass at the end of this age.

The Battle of Armageddon will be a religious war between Israel and the nations of the world except for the United States. Presently,  Israel and Palestine claim Jerusalem as their capital city. Both harbor a desire to control the Temple Mount. The Bible predicts that Israel and Palestine will share the Temple Mount.

However, much of the world is interested in Israel. The United Nations wants to control Israel and believes teaming up with Palestine is the key to her success. Turkey has diverted the flow of the Euphrates River and is paving a road to Israel. The way is being prepared for Turkey, Russia, and Iran to march down the dry riverbed to fight at Armageddon (Revelation 16:12). Antichrist and the False Prophet are on the sidelines, waiting to seize their allotted portions of power. Many of the world community want to drive Israel into the sea.

The Battle of Armageddon will send Israel to her knees, but the Lord will go forth, and fight against those nations as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley: and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal . . . and the Lord my God shall come (Zechariah 14:3-5) with all the saints (Revelation 16:16) to end the Battle of Armageddon.

Will Israel or the United States use nuclear weapons against Israel’s enemies to end the battle of Armageddon? Zechariah says in 14:12, this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. The end-time Battle of Armageddon will be the last battle of this age..

When Will the End-Time Battle of Armageddon Be Fought?

Many men have tried to predict the time of the Battle of Armageddon. Deadlines have come and gone. Long ago the Mayan calendar marked December 21, 2012, as the day the world would end. And in 1139, the Irish archbishop, ST. Malachi said the 112th pope would be an evil pope that would spur the world on to the Battle of Armageddon. More recently, Harold Camping predicted May 21, 2011 as Doomsday. The Bible says this generation shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled. . . But of that day and hour knoweth no, man, no, not even the angels of heaven (Matthew 24:34, 36).

Paul said we don’t need to know the day of the Battle of Armageddon. But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night (I Thessalonians 5:1, 2). But ye are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore, let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober (I Thessalonians 5:4-6). We don’t need to know when the Battle of Armageddon will come, but we must remain alert, so we will hear the seventh Trumpet when it sounds the Battle of Armageddon.

Satan is busily preparing for the end-time Battle of Armageddon. John saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty (Revelation 16:13, 14). Satan is determined to control the Temple Mount by driving Jerusalem into the sea.

Israel is also preparing for the showdown at Armageddon. Her Temple is built and waiting to be put together, its furniture is made, and a red heifer has been chosen for a sin offering. Israel has staked out her claim for Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. No one that hears or reads about the Seven Trumpets should be surprised when the end-time Trumpet sounds the battle of Armageddon.

The battle of Armageddon will be fought approximately seven years after the Israelis and the Palestinians sign a peace treaty allowing Israel to build her Temple on the Temple Mount. Antichrist shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease (Daniel 9:27). Each day of the week represents one year. When we see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) and claim to be God (II Thessalonians 2:4) we’ll know who the Antichrist is. At this time the 3½ years of great Tribulation will begin and end with the Battle of Armageddon.

The end-time generation will witness all things (Luke 21:32) that lead to the battle of Armageddon, but will they listen to the warnings? Will they know about of the coming rapture and the end-time battle of Armageddon? Will they heed the words of the two witnesses (Revelation 11), or will they pledge allegiance to Antichrist and take the mark of the Beast. Will this generation be listening when the Trumpet sounds for God’s people, or will they be surprised when Jesus is caught on camera descending onto the Mount of Olives with His church to fight at Armageddon (Revelation 14:19-20)?

Immediately after the tribulation of those days (Matthew 24:29) and before the seventh angel pours out his last vial (Revelation 16:17) the seventh Trumpet will sound the Battle of Armageddon and the resurrection of the church will take place (Revelation 14:15-16). The penalty for pledging allegiance to Antichrist and taking the mark of the Beast is death and hell. An angel will thrust his sickle into the earth to gather the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great wine press of the wrath of God. And the wine press was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the wine press, even unto the horse bridles (Revelation 14:19-20). After the battle of Armageddon, the earth will know that Jesus is God.

The End-Time Battle of Armageddon Will Wipe Out Poisoned Wine

When Cameras filming the Battle of Armageddon catch the thunder and lightning of the earthquake that divides the great city of Babylon into three parts (Revelation 16:18-21), the people of earth will be traumatized. They will fall to their knees in unbelief when the great whore is judged and utterly burned with fire (Revelation 18:8). And when the beast and the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, are cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone (Revelation 19:20—21, 13), the people will wail in grief from the shock of seeing their rulers cast into the lake of fire. They will drop to their knees, stretch their arms skyward, and cry unto Jesus for mercy, but it will be too late. Jesus had cried unto them many times before the battle of Armageddon, but they would not hear, so now when they cried, [He] would not hear them (Zechariah 7:13).

After the Battle of Armageddon Satan will be bound for a thousand years and cast into the bottomless pit (Revelation 20:1-3). Then peace will settle over the earth. Instantly, the spirit of deception will be gone. In that day shall there be one Lord and his name one (Jesus) (Zechariah 14:9). All false doctrines, including the Trinity doctrine will be wiped out at Armageddon when the people of the earth realize that Jesus is the great Almighty God.

God hungers for a people that know His name. Zechariah said all nations will know that the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord and his name one (Jesus) (Zechariah 14:9). I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, saith the Lord God, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes (Ezekiel 36:23). The world will know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel (Ezekiel 37:28).

God was looking ahead to the Battle of Armageddon when He said I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord [Jesus] (Ezekiel 38:22-23). I am the Lord: and beside me there is no savior (Isaiah 43:11). I will also make my holy name (Jesus) known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel (Ezekiel 39:7). After Armageddon the world will know the Lord shall be king over all the earth.

God’s people will be made holy by the Holy Ghost that dwells in them. Paul cried out to the Romans: If the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you [Holy Ghost], he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you (Romans 8:11).

Armageddon Will Not Be the End of the World

Armageddon will not destroy the entire earth or all its inhabitants. However, the world as we know it will end. Now is come salvation and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ (Revelation 12:10). When Jesus comes the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord (Revelation 11:15). After Armageddon the heavenly kingdom and the kingdoms of this world will become one kingdom.

After the battle of Armageddon is over, the earthly Kingdom will be peaceful without war and bloodshed. Blessed and Holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years (Revelation 20:6). Those raptured at the sounding of the seventh Trumpet will rule with Jesus during the thousand year millennium.

When the Day of Judgment comes, the dead will be judged (Revelation 20:5) according to their works. And whosoever [is] not found written in the book of life [will be] cast into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:15). God will create a new heaven and a new earth (Revelation 21:1). In this kingdom God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away (Revelation 21:4). After Armageddon, Poisoned Wine will be banished forever.
