“Hurry and come, all you surrounding nations, and gather yourselves together.” Cause your mighty ones to come down there, O Lord”
The people of the pagan and false religion of this world are impelled to gather for this last great onslaught against the Lord and His anointed king.
“I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits, something like frogs; for they are spirits of demons, performing signs; which go forth to the kings of the whole inhabited earth, to gather them together for the war of that great day of God, the Almighty. “Behold, I come like a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his clothes, so that he doesn’t walk naked, and they see his shame.” He gathered them together into the place which is called in Hebrew, Megiddo.”
The Lord will call the pagan nations of the great valley where they will gather to make their last stand against the Almighty God. They can never succeed, but are gathered there, under the compulsion of the will of God. We must be ready for that day and have our souls ready for the end of all things. All will face this day, but only the redeemed people of God will be kept safe from the following carnage that will envelope the aggressing nations.
The people of God will be kept safe from the aggression because the armies of heaven will come down and fight for them, indeed the Lord Himself will destroy them with a word from His mouth.
“The armies which are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in white, pure, fine linen. Out of his mouth proceeds a sharp, double-edged sword, that with it he should strike the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod. He treads the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God, the Almighty. He has on his garment and on his thigh a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
This will be the most fearful day. But not for the people of God. This is their deliverance day from the oppressions of the wicked. All that has vaunted itself against the Lord will now come to grief and the final end of the matter. God will destroy all who refuse to bend their knees to the Lord Jesus and they will face the judgement and the last great assize of the wicked.
