From the Euphrates, four demons force the nations into a
mighty thrust of destruction, which leads to Armageddon. The
two hundred million demons captive under Iraq are released in
a final thrust of evil (Rev. 9:14-16). Later, the Antichrist hordes
opposing Israel melt away on their feet by instantaneous necro-
as His glorious appearing, too terrible for words to de-
scribe, ends the war.
Messiah ultimately destroys the Antichrist by the splendor
of His coming (2 Thess. 2:8). This is accomplished quickly,
despite the fact that all the kings of the earth and their armies
are gathered together to make war against the King of Kings
and Lord or Lords. In a flash, the beast and his false prophet
are thrown into Gehenna, 3
the Lake of Fire. The judgment—
the raging fire that consumes the enemies of God—has come
and the Christ of God sets up His government on David's
throne to rule the world in righteousness for one thousand
years (Rev. 20:4).
Upon His appearing with the hosts of Heaven, His new
Kingdom will be established in Jerusalem. The cataclysmic
events of His coming shake all that can be shaken. The cities
crumble and the rebuilt Babylon sinks out of sight and disap-
pears like Sodom of old. The successive kingdoms of this
world—Babylonian, Medo-Persian, Grecian, Roman, and the
yet future kingdoms—cease and Messiah opens His everlasting
Kingdom on the throne of David, headquartered in Jerusalem
where He rules from Zion (Isa. 24:23; Luke 1:32).
