The Battle of Armageddon


Jesus Christ – glorious in battle, triumphant over every enemy, riding a mighty white stallion – will split the eastern sky to come back to earth as the King of Kings. This is truly the colossal event and even more spectacular than Gog and Magog. The breath (Spirit) of His mouth is a two-edged sword. He has sat – at times stood – at His Father’s Right Hand for two thousand years. Now, he returns to reign over the world for a millennium.

As He returns to this earth, He will face an army from every kingdom ruled by the Antichrist. Demons will have been dispatched to gather this army and they will be chosen to be part of the most vicious army ever assembled. Each soldier will be chosen by the highest possible standard of both military and New Age religions. “And I 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). Every chosen warrior will have taken the Mark of the Beast will be possessed by unclean spirits and will be ready to die for this masquerade of their “christ.”

The Son of God will not return from His Father’s presence alone. The triumphant Church of the blood-washed and glorified saints will be riding with Him on their white horses. Every one of these Saints will be overcomers from their generation and each of them will be a match for Satan himself. They will have already proven that Satan could not stop their faith or compromise their purity. They will surely gleam brightly in their garments of righteousness, “And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean” (Revelation 19:14).

Even before this great drama is portrayed in Revelation Chapter nineteen, the Spirit declared that a host of angels would join the ranks for this grand moment, “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats” (Matthew 25:31-32). To even attempt to number this multitude will be impossible. Every angel will be an experienced warrior that have fought and won numerous conflicts with their evil counterparts that rebelled with their champion, Lucifer or Satan.

This great multitude will stretch from one end of the heavens to the opposite end. The day of invisible angels will be finished and this awesome company will startle the earthly inhabitants that are still alive. The saints on their spectacular white horses will number “ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands” but the angels will be innumerable. At the head of this great and awesome multitude and brighter than the noon day sun, will be the triumphant King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

The Son of God is called the Lamb or the Lamb of God from Revelation 4:1 to this victorious moment. His total purpose during that period is the redemption of this universe. At this point the earth will be redeemed, sin will be judged, injustice will be set straight, and the righteous King of Kings can now mount the Throne of David in Jerusalem. Satan has been the god of this earth for better than six thousand years, but he knows if he loses the “Battle of Armageddon”, he is finished.

To picture the ground and air forces gathered in Megiddo will be to witness in one location the military hardware of every great army on earth. As the Antichrist armies gather, the forward direction will be Jerusalem. It is clear in Scripture that the Antichrist’s capitol city of Babylon will already be in ruins, the Vatican city of Rome will have been burned, and, now, Jerusalem’s must be conquered. The destruction of Babylon was an act of God but Rome’s destruction was the fury of the Antichrist. When the great minds of these world leaders are fully prepared and the march to Jerusalem is announced, the heavens will suddenly explode with action.

Jesus Christ in all of His excellent glory will return to personally direct this battle. We serve a patient God; but when His wrath is kindled, there is no defense. Zechariah spoke by the Spirit, “For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle … Then shall the LORD go forth…And 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” (Zechariah 14:2a,3a &12). The slaughter of this angry mob will be unprecedented.

The Son of God will actually fight with His army of the redeemed and His angels. The Antichrist will flee in fear and defeat to the ruined entrance of His once proud capitol. Micah reported his end at Babylon, “And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders” (Micah 5:6).

Our victorious King will arrive in Jerusalem with grace in His heart for the convicted nation of His own kin. “And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends” (Zechariah 13:6). “And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn” (Zechariah 12:10).

The very word “Armageddon” has always been a word that suggests the end of human conflicts or the end of time. It has been used as freely by the unbelieving and the wild spiritualists as it has by the Bible believers. That suggests that it is God’s designed word – all fixed in the human thought processes – raising both great fear but also final victory. Only we that know the infallibility of Scripture can speak this word “Armageddon” with great joy in our hearts.

It’s closer than you can possibly imagine!

  1. Dear Pastor Chambers

    As the bible states we will all meet in the valley of Megiddo. some for destruction and some to glory. You’re right Armageddon is a word that everybody knows, but most do not understand what it really means. It is a Fear of sorts for most as well, but not the correct fear of the Lord.
    “My people perish for lack of knowledge”

    I must say the Holy Spirit has you publishing more than ever, we are getting close!

    God Bless my Christian Bretheren

  2. It’s difficult to piece all of these spectacular events together. All of those horses coming out of the sky, I guess they will be like those Greek flying horses with the bird wings. Heavenly horses probably, that don’t die or have manure. The troops on the ground will be on horses too since the blood will flow to the bridles. Maybe former wars will have depleted all vehicles and weapons by then so the only battle gear will consist of swords, spears and horses. Maybe even armadillos, I always think of those critters whenever I read about Armageddon. I sure can’t find much joy in this scenario, but I guess General Jesus gets the medal of honor.

  3. Dear pastor Joseph,

    Excellent article as usual. May our Lord Jesus bless and reward all your efforts in advancing His kingdom through your ministry, here on earth, while we still have time, and may all the believers in His name may be worthy of service to our King in His soon coming Kingdom. Because as you said “It”s closer than you can possibly imagine!.”

    Hey Joe,

    You’ve managed to do it again!!! You just make stuff up.

    Why don’t you write a book and join the legions of charlatians who pretend to know what Our Lord Jesus said: only the Father knows.

    Just like the scribes and pharisees, you pour over the Scriptures yet, you don’t have a clue to their actual meaning.

    How sad that innocent minds actually believe the nonsense you spew. Luckily, ours is a merciful God………. to those decieved. Can’t really say about you, Joe. You know better.

    Oh well, with any luck, your present congregation won’t end up taking you to court in a multi-million dollar lawsuit,……. and winning!!!

    You’ll just start over again with new sheep.

    Time is not on your side, Joe. Better get right, before it’s too late for you.

    Pax Christi,
    Robert McDevitt

  5. ia ora joseph
    Zech 12.10 we cant imagine the great sorrow of the israeli people when they suddenly realise that jesus is the longed for christ
    and that for 2000 years they have denied him
    what shame and what sorrow
    “lord hasten that day”
    in jesus name


  6. Getting closer, yes! More sitings of UFO’s upon the earth and that new movie Skyline coming November. I knew as soon as the supernatural started increasing with frequency and intensity we are on the last right track to the end of this Age of Grace and the Rapture event. Satan’s imitation Skyline will prime the pump of worldly conditioning for our departure. I am getting excited, and looking-up! Praise the King of Kings Lord Jesus! Keep it coming brother Chambers…


  8. Dear Brother Joseph,

    Well written. Yes, time is quickly passing and the wicked become even more wicked. We live in the “wicked and adulterous generation.” As we see from several comments, the scoffers and naysayers have bought the lies of this world, hook, line and sinker.

    Brothers and Sisters in Christ, stand firm. The physical churches have sold our Lord, and their congregations out in favor of 12 step programs, yoga, and all manner of programs except the one thing we are commanded to do. Preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Yes, what an exciting time to live! If anyone reads this and your church doesn’t teach the Word of God (or all of it) find one that does or find a group of Christians who do home study. There is only ONE WAY to eternal life and that is through Jesus Christ. For the person who commented that his “God is merciful, I agree. He has given man over 3000 years. Your decisions will send you to eternal damnation-not our Heavenly Father. He wishes for none to perish. Yes, we can know what Jesus said, we have the inerrant Word of God by which to live.

    God bless your ministry. LOOK UP!

  9. Hello Brother Joseph.
    I think you provided an excellent analysis and summary of the events of Armageddon and its aftermath. And, no,I don’t think you are “making this stuff up” as you have demonstratively relied on Scripture for your commentary.

    While it is true that only God knows (and after the Resurrection, it would seem that so did Jesus – Acts 1:6-8, though he didn’t when he gave the Olivet Discourse – Matthew 24:36, Mark 13:32) exactly when this will happen, he provided details in both the Old and New Testaments to let us know when the time was near and to watch for the signs (Mark 13:32-37), as well as what would happen during the Tribulation, Millennium, and re-fabrication of the entire universe into a “new heaven and new earth” unaffected by the taint of sin which exits now. When that happens the New Jerusalem will come and we will literally have heaven on this new Earth forever. (Rev. 21).
    In my opinion, all indications are that the time for the last seven years of this age to begin is exceedingly close and we would be well advised to take Jesus’ admonition seriously.

  10. Maybe Robert McDevitt would like to elaborate on what is not right with this article? I read a lot of “spewing” from you Robert, but what is your point exactly? Curious…

  11. Thank you for your good teaching, Pastor Joseph. We know (or SHOULD know) that the Battle
    of Armageddon will not be an ordinary battle between two sets of nations. This battle will
    be one between the armies of Heaven under Christ and the armies of the Earth under Antichrist
    as proved in Zechariah 14; Joel 3; Rev. 19:11-21. “Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”
    (Matthew 13:9; Mark 4:9).
