    Can we fight the Battle of Armageddon?

    I know the final war will involve the angels, demons, God and Satan but I was wondering if there will also be humans involved. Can souls that are already in Heaven come back to Earth to take part in the Lord's army?

    Believe it or not, I am keen on participating because I hold this strong belief about military service but am too scared to go to boot camp in this lifetime so I was wondering if I could still make up by joining God's army where no drill sergeant will be psychologically torturing me.

    Plus I get to take part in the most important battle ever. And that's a lot of glory there.

    Been praying to God for permission to volunteer. I hope he says 'Yes'.

    The battle

    The battle your talking about is won by the Lord Jesus. No need to get involved.

    Jesus Is Lord.

    I see.

    But isn't it supposed to be a seven-year war or something (let me know if I'm wrong) where others besides God is involved?

    The War

    It will be pretty peaceful for 3 1/2 years (Outside of God's Seals) The Antichrist will muster a army at the end, and most likely join forces with China to march on Israel. This takes place at Megiddo. Jesus hands everyone their backside. Rev 19

    There may be war, but the Antichrist will be one of flattering lips, and the bringer of peace........but only for the first 3 1/2 years of the tribulation.

    Jesus Is Lord.

    If Jesus will wipe out the enemy in the blink of an eye (that thing about how a sword of light will vanquish all armies), I don't think there's gonna be a battle because that's what you call a massacre.

    yep..........

    Rev says "By the sword of his mouth" The pool of blood from this will extend over 200 miles. I suspect Jesus speaks something, and things go real bad for the armies that have marched against the Lord and his people. We will get to watch this, so don't feel left out.

    Jesus Is Lord.

    I Love Questions About the Future!

    Revelation 19:11-21 (King James Version)

    11And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

    12His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

    13And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

    14And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

    15And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

    16And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

    17And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

    18That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

    19And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

    20And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

    21And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.


    As you can see in verse 19, Satan ( the Beast)
    is ready to make war with Him who sits on the
    white horse(Jesus) AND HIS ARMY.( THE CHRISTIANS)

    To me it seems like we are ready to fight a war. But the good thing to remember is
    IF WE FIGHT OR IF WE DONT, WE STILL WIN BECAUSE JESUS IS ON OUR SIDE!



    **********************************************
    HERE ARE SOME FUTURE EVENTS THAT MIGHT HELP YOU
    PUT EVERYTHING IN ORDER
    **********************************************

    First come The Rapture, Revelation 4-(also see I Thessalonians 4: 15,16,17)when all the Christians will be removed from the earth

    then COMES



    the Tribulation Period which will last for 7 years Revelation Chapters 6-19



    after that the Second Coming of Christ Revelation 19:11-21



    Then the Thousand Year Reign of Christ, Revelation 20:6

    a time of peace when Jesus will rule on earth from his

    Father David's Throne (this is also a time when

    Satan will be bound 1000 years)



    After the thousand years are up

    Satan will be loosed again to deceive the nations. Revelation 20:7-10



    Fire will rain down out of the sky on those nations who rise up against God and they will be devoured Revelation 20:9,10



    Then comes The White Throne Judgment, A Judgment

    For All UNBELIEVERS Revelation 20:11

    (NO SAVED PEOPLE WILL BE IN THIS JUDGMENT

    This Judgment takes place during indescribable

    void between the end of the present universe and

    the creation of the new heaven and earth

    ALL THE SINNERS WILL BE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE

    AND THE EARTH WILL BE BURNED UP (CLEANED UP)

    ELEMENTS WILL MELT WITH A FERVENT HEAT

    here the contaminated universe goes out of existence.

    Peter describes this moment in 2 Peter 3:10-13

    The universe is uncreated and going into non-existence Matt 24:35



    THIS IS GODS WAY OF GETTING RID OF ALL EVIL BEFORE HE BRINGS DOWN OUT OF HEAVEN,



    The Holy City, New Jerusalem

    where all the Christians (saved redeemed by the blood of the lamb)

    will dwell forever. Revelation 21

    GOD BLESS YOU
    YOU ASK SOME REALLY GOOD QUESTIONS!
    Until the Trumper Sounds,
    Tranquility:heart7:

    There's gonna be no battle at Armageddon because God will pour fire from Heaven on the enemies before the battle starts. So the battle is already won by Jesus.

    P.S. The battle of Armageddon isn't the last battle. The last battle will be Gog & Magog; not Armageddon.

    Light and darkness

    Those dressed in white that come with the Lord Jesus are those who were saved and have the garments of righteousness on them.

    The story of David and Goliath gives an explanation about what is going to happen. Goliath represents the Anti-christ (who is Satan personallised) with all the nations of the world behind him. After 2 and a half years into his reign he starts to declare himself as God and blasphemes God. He wants to destroy Israel and prevent the return of Jesus. David is a type of Jesus Christ, the anointed, who comes from God and trusts in God. He overcomes the Anti-christ and all the nations mourn.

    Remember that Israel today is out of the will of God and the leaders are the same as Saul who separated himself from God because of his disobedience and their rejection of their Messiah - Jesus Christ. God anoints another king in David who is the line of Jesse which is also the line of Jesus. He is a man after Gods own heart as was Jesus Christ. He Himself declared I and my Father are one - they share the same purpose.

    Israel will not be able to take on the Anti-christ and the armies of the world and therefore will have to have someone that can. As David did with Goliath so Jesus will do with the Anti-christ. He will overcome him with the word of His mouth - a double edged sword (Old and New Testaments - the testimony of Him).

    As David cut off the head of the Goliath with a sword which means in analogy that he removed the authority that Goliath had over the nations and the world. Jesus Christ comes and takes away the authority that the Anti-christ has over the nations and the world.

    So therefore we who come with Jesus will have no part in the fight. The Bible says that God is our salvation and our own works will not suffice. He has provided the means for men and woman and children to find that salvation through His Son who shed His Blood on the cross for us. His words were IT IS FINISHED - the work of redemption is finished. Rest in that.

    Regards
    Donald

    Chronologically speaking, first comes the "Destruction of Babylon", then the return of Christ to rule the world for 1000 years, then Satan is allowed to escape one last time to rally the nations to his cause, which results in a war culminating in the battle of Armageddon.

    Now if you have read the Parable of the wineskins, and understood it, you must realize that those born AFTER Christ's return will be given the gift of "Everlasting Life", but not those born before Christ's return. "New wine for new wineskins" - But putting new wine in old wineskins would cause them to burst. Translation : If you have ever heard of "Tellomeres" you know that scientists have found that it would only require very minor changes in our phyiological design to allow us to live indefinitely. BUT - according to the parable of the wineskins, these changes must be made at a very early stage in the development of a human being or else they would kill the individual involved. So, - don't expect to live until "Armageddon". As for the possibility of re-incarnation to live again as a different individual, - that one remains an open issue, could possibly achieve your desire that way.
