Armageddon is the word describing what the world will be like without Jesus. Mankind’s unending fight with God, at last, brings them the freedom they always wanted, life without God. The time has come for the fighting of that final war of the age, the name of which has become a byword among men since John first wrote it down–Armageddon!
God has chosen the Holy Land as the stage upon which two crucial events take place, one on a mountain, and one on a plain. Mount Calvary and the Plain of Megiddo are the two altars of sacrifice that dominate the history of the world. The Holy Spirit of God has chosen five capable authors to describe for us in clear and chilling language the most famous of all battles — Armageddon!
The five authors include David, Isaiah, Joel, Zechariah, and John. ( Ps. 2:1-5, 9; Is. 34:1-6; Is. 63:3, 4, 6; Joel 3:2, 9-16; Zech. 12:2, 14:2, 3, 12; Revelation 14:14-20, 16:16, 19:11-21)
So what is life like apart from Jesus? Without His power life is reduced to living Hell.
First, there will be PLAGUES ON THE EARTH sores ooze from their bodies as all the evil within starts to come out, a sign of inward corruption.
Second, there will be POLLUTION IN THE SEAS as the sea filled with life become a stench of dead blood a sign of man’s hopelessness apart from God.
Third, there will be a POISON ON THE LAND all the streams of water on earth are poisoned, a sign of absolute desperation as water is imperative for life as is Jesus.
Fourth, there will be SCORCHING the Earth the sun which keeps life sustained on earth flares up blazing and burning the planet, a sign of false worship which started with sun worship is now powerless before the Creator.
Fifth, from the brightness of a fiercely blazing sun to absolute blackness in the realm of the beast. This is a sign of the spiritual darkness Satan brings.
Sixth, the waters of the great dividing river Euphrates dries up. A demon trio rounds up the army of the antichrist and Armageddon is their destination.
Seventh, the greatest quake of all time is unleashed by God and more devastation occurs in that big one than in every other one combined. There are 5, 319 quakes on record at present. 1100-1149: 6; 1150-1199: 8; 1200-1249: 14; 1250-1299: 12; 1300-1349: 6; 1350-1399: 12; 1400-1449: 4; 1450-1499: 24; 1500-1549: 10; 1550-1599: 50; 1600-1649: 90; 1650-1699: 82; 1700-1749: 48; 1750-1799: 88; 1800-1849: 72; 1850-1899: 172; 1900-1949: 506; 1950-1997: 670
