Armageddon is a name for a great battle that appeared in the Revelation to John. Some people think that this battle is something Spiritual. Most of them take it as a sign for the End of Time and the end of the material world. I am going to explain the Knowledge which I got from the Holy Spirit of God. The name Armageddon Or Harmageddon consists of two parts, Har means hill and Mageddon is name of real place in Israel. So the matter is real battle. This place has historical significance and it saw wars. The pharaoh Thutmose drove away the Hexes invader across that place. In his time the basis of the city Salem was built as a sign for the start of Peace. This was great event so that the people of the area kept it in their historical memory.
The experts who come to explain the verses know that the realization of the prophecies has some aspects of selection, modulation, creation of new addition and literal. They say that the role of Jesus fulfilled more than 300 of the old prophecies. However the remnant prophecies were delayed to the next role of Judgement. That's why he said, Heaven and Earth can pass away but my saying does not until all come true. Now I am going to explain some verses from the Revelation 16:12-16 which include Armageddon. But keep in mind that every prophecy contains a brain and body. The idea is the important thing in the subject and the prophecy can be fulfilled in different ways and God usually uses the way which keeps the matter covered as a secret to surprise us in the end. Now come to the text:
"12 Then the sixth angel powered out his bowl on the great river Euphrates. The river dried up, to provide a way for the kings who come from the east.13 Then I saw three unclean spirits that looked like frogs. They were coming out of the mouth of the dragon, the mouth of the beast and the mouth of the false prophet. 14 They are the spirits of demons that perform miracles. These three spirits go out to all the kings of the world, to bring them together for the battle on the great day of Almighty. 15 Listen I am coming like a thief. 16 Then the spirits brought the kings together in the place that is in Hebrew is called Armageddon."
In 16:12 the prophecy came true considering providing a way is the idea. This came true in history in relation to the prophecy in Ezekiel 38. The Tarter came from the east from Mongol and invaded the north countries including Russia. They stayed there a period then came to the south until the river Euphrates. To cross the river they filled it with countless dead bodies and passed over them to the other side as if they were moving on dried land.
When you read Ezekiel 38, you know that God intended to drag Gog and Magog to invade the deserted land of Israel to destroy them there. So we know now that they were the Tarter who after taking Iraq they advanced and invaded the land of Palestine/ Israel. Then at the border of Egypt they were destroyed and their legend with their leader finished in 1260A.D
But there is another idea about Gog and Magog in Rev.20:7"Satan will bring Gog and Magog all together for battle, as many as the grains of sand on the sea shore. They spread out over the earth and surround the camp of God's people and the city that he loves. But fire came down from heaven and destroyed them." This prophecy came true in the war of 1948 between the Arab countries and the born Israel. The number of the Israelite was like the number of a camp. But the number of the Arabs were like the number of the grains of sand on the sea shore. They were defeated by the modern weapons which throw fire from afar. This is the battle of Armageddon because in the next verse Rev.16:15 "Listen! I am coming like a thief." That came true by the birth of the Son of Man in June 1948 just after The birth of Israel. That was the coming not the appearance.
Did that finish the subject of Gog and Magog? No. Because God spoke of them in the Quran and in Mohammad talk they were a sign of the ten big signs of the Last Day. In the Quran ch. the Cave read:" They said:O Zuel Karneen! Gog and Magog are spoiling the land. So, may we pay you tribute to set a barrier between us and them... He said, yes help me with strength of men, I will set it between you and them... So Gog and Magog were not able to surmount nor pierce it...He said: This is a mercy from my Lord, but when the promise comes to pass, He will destroy it. The promise of my Lord is true."
This prophecy came true by the events of the wars between Egypt and Israel. When Israel took Sinai she made a high barrier on the east bank of Swiss Canal and called it the line of Bar-lief. It appeared very difficult to surmount and pierce. But in 1973 Egypt army could destroy it. In that time the son of man was an officer in the armed forces living behind 73.
Now come to the Rev.16:13 of the three unclean spirits. This is applied to the false teaching about Jesus Christ. A man appeared hundred years ago claimed to be the awaited Christ and initiated a big group that now have a channel on TV. By his claim to be Christ he took the place of real Christ and made a lot to lose and escape the plan of God. He set three unclean sayings about Jesus, that he didn't die on the cross, that he wasn't raised to Heaven but died later like any man, that he was a prophet with a national mission and not like Moses or Mohammad. His follower on the TV channel speak with good logic but failed to know the truth. May God forgive him and them. If Jesus was not raised to Heaven the preaching of the gospel would be nonsense, as Paul said. They need to know the secret of the raising to Heaven. To be continued.
