How the Peace of Jerusalem Will Be Established
As of late, we have seen the world led by the United States seeking to strip from Israel it present day borders and bullying them into a forced agreement with those who absolutely abhor them and seek their utter destruction. Sadly, America (who is governed at the moment by the progressive Left) has always been Israels strongest ally but at present has forsaken Israel and thrown them under the Middle East Islamic bus. With an anti-Israeli Europe and now a current anti-Israeli U.S. administration, Israels back is totally up against the wall and they know it.
"Sadly, America (who is governed at the moment by the progress Left) - has always been Israels strongest ally but at present has seemed to have forsaken Israel and thrown them under the Middle East Islamic bus"
When the present world which we are living in has become hostile and aggressive towards Israel, do not expect to see them idly stand by and let the world decide their fate and eradicate them from off of the face of the earth. Israel is a military might in that region with nukes and is armed to the teeth. As the world continues its anti-Semitic agenda they will one day choose to look the other way and allow Israels enemies in that region to grossly cross the line with Israel. It will be then that Israel - in the reaction of self defense and national survival - will finally strike back with great fury and military might. Israel will totally institute the Limbaugh Doctrine and secure their borders. They will obliterate and wipe out their border enemies unto the point that they will achieve finally complete safety and security (Ezek. 38:8, 11-12). Israel will bring about their own peace and the world at that time will be forced to recognize it. It will be after this time that a man from Europe will broker a deal and lend his might to a covenant (peace treaty) on behalf of Israels greatly defeated enemies. This European leader will enter into a seven year covenant with Israel not from a position of dominance but rather from a position of weakness (Dan. 9:27, Rev. 6:2).
It will be just before these events transpire that the Rapture of the Church will take place in which Almighty God the Son will call out His body (saints and ambassadors). This event (i.e., The Rapture) will be a wondrous sign unto the apostate western post - Christian world and have more of an impact on their culture and society than other regions in the world. It will be just after this event takes place that all had better be prepared, for Almighty God's "Day of Wrath" is now at hand (2 Thess. 2:3-12)!
"All these are the beginning of sorrows (birth pangs) Matt. 24:8".. As we are leading up to that time we are constantly seeing Israels border enemies being ever more emboldened to stir up strife and lash out against Israel. Just in this last month alone we have seen Israels border enemies seeking to bait and provoke Israel to engage them and rally world opinion and its leaders against them. Israels border enemies - especially the Palestinian people - sadly are nothing but the pawns and victims of the anti Semitic Arab nations, Iran and Russia. These weaker Islamic nations are more than willing to heed these voices and are rabidly chomping at the bit to destroy Israel and occupy Israels land.
Connecting the Dots
Now to put this all together with a last days biblical perspective. The official commencement of the horrific seven year period (i.e., The Day of the Lord) will begin with the breaking of the 1st seal (i.e., the "Confirming of the Covenant" - Dan. 9:27) by Almighty Gods Lamb (i.e., The Lord Jesus Christ) in Heaven (Rev. 6:1). It is at this precise moment that the man of lawlessness (i.e., the anti-Christ) will be revealed unto the entire world (2 Thess. 2: 3-12; Rev. 6:2). This revealing of the Anti-Christ and the commencement of this seven year tribulation period will begin (as was stated prior) when this man (i.e., the Anti-Christ) adding his position of great power and authority to a covenant with Israel on the behalf of Israels DEFEATED enemies (Ezek. 38:8,11-12, Dan. 9: 27). Israel will sign this covenant from a position of absolute strength, not weakness. This prophetic position is contrary to that to which many great biblical scholars have held through the years (Ezek 38: 8). When this position (position of strength) is received, all the prophetic pieces come together as we shall see.
"Israel will sign this covenant from a position of absolute strength, not weakness contrary to that which many biblical scholars have believed"
With the complete defeat of Israel's border enemies Israel will then have the rest and peace that they have so long sought and will dwell in their land in complete safety. One event Israel did not anticipate will be the Rapture of the Church of believers (Israel's strongest ally) and the arrival of Almighty Gods Two wondrous Messengers (Ezek. 38:8,11-12, Rev. 11:3-7). Sadly with this newly acquisition and position of power Israel's heart will NOT be right with Almighty God (Rev. 11:8). Tragically, in Israels new found security and rest they will only seek to corrupt themselves and find themselves hard against the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God and His Two Messengers. It will be also during this time that Israel (like it or not) will have the super natural protection of Almighty Gods Two Witnesses who - just coming off of 3000 years in the presence of Almighty God in glory - will possess Almighty God's Divine authority. These Two Men will be extremely more powerful than Satans anti - Christ and his global confederacies (Rev. 11:3-6). These Two will be ABSOLUTELY INVINCIBLE during their 1260 days of ministry!
"This revealing of the Anti-Christ and the commencement of this seven year tribulation period will begin when this man (i.e., the Anti-Christ) adds his position of great power and authority to a covenant with Israel on the behalf of Israels defeated enemies" ..During this time of ease for the nation Israel these Two Lamp Stands of Almighty God (Moses and Elijah) will preach salvation in Jesus Messiah, re- institute the temple, its sacrifices and its priesthood. They will preach repentance and testify to ALL in the earth that the establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. These Two will then prepare the remnant of believing Jews and a chosen 144,000 Jewish men - from the 12 tribes of Israel - (Matt. 24:14, Rev. 7:4-8, 11:13) for their global ministry unto ALL nations of the earth and preach the Messiahs glorious gospel and imminent return and Kingdom. It will be at this time -the first 3 1/2 years of the tribulation period - that the WORLD will seek any and every opportunity to root out and destroy these two Divinely appointed vessels of Almighty God... all to no avail (Mal. 4:4-6, Rev. 7,14:1-4,11:3-8). . It will be at this time - at the beginning of this seven year period, while Israel dwells in their land in absolute safety - that the WHOLE GENTILE WORLD will be catastrophically trodden down by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the Trumpet Judgments of Almighty God and the demonic host of destroyers (Rev. 6-9). These events along with their consequences - including the unopposed preaching of RIGHTEOUSNESS of the Two Witnesses of Almighty God (Mal. 4:4-6, John 3:19-21, Rev. 11:2-4,10) will only stir up the worlds exponential rage and hatred for Israel (Rev. 11:10).
"The Two Witnesses of Almighty God will only stir up the worlds exponential rage and hatred for Israel"
As these 3 ½ years go by, unbelieving Israel will now begin to feel the chastening hand of Almighty God via Gog and Magog (Ezek. 38-39), the global ravishing of Satans hatred and the worlds wrath (Rev. 11:8) and the Abomination of Desolation (Matt. 24:15-17, 2 Thess. 2:8-13, Rev 13). As the Second Woe comes near to completion, so also ends the mighty Two Witnesses of Almighty Gods ministry and their protective hand over Israel. As their 1260 days are now fully accomplished, the Anti Christ will NOW own the next remaining 3 ½ years or 1260 days or 42 months of this tribulation period (Rev. 11:3; 13:1-5). As he breaks his covenant with Israel (Dan 9:27), he will violently murder Almighty Gods Two Witnesses. It will be this momentous event (the murder of Almighty Gods Two Witnesses) that a long awaited god hating, anti-Semitic ravished world will then with all their wretched being rejoice exceedingly at the Anti Christs victory and confess unto all, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him (Rev. 11:8-10,13)? This one event will solidify the world's allegiance to the beast, to Lucifer and institute the 666 global state.
As the godless and lawless world celebrates with exceeding godless joy, this rejoicing will be short lived. For at the end of 3 ½ days Almighty Gods Two Witnesses will then be resuscitation and ascension into Heaven in front of the world's masses and their newly reigning savior (i.e., Anti Christ) (Matt. 24:15, Rev. 13:1-5). It will be at this moment that all of the air in their lawless bag will be let out. The worlds short lived exceeding joy and rejoicing will be instantly turned into exceeding terror and fear. As REALITY now totally permeates ALL of the world's godless inhabitants, their fear and dread will now turn to uncontrollable rage and they will now seek to go after Israel with ALL of their being. Any who call on the name of the Messiah of Israel will now be in their sights (Rev. 12:6, 12-17, 13, 17:11-14). This "time" (i.e., 42 months ) under the anti Christ has now FULLY begun which is called, Great Tribulation" or "Jacobs Trouble. . "The worlds short lived exceeding joy and rejoicing will be instantly turned into exceeding terror and fear"
It will be now - with the rise of the Anti Christ as chief global autocratic and the establishment and institution of the Abomination of Desolation (Dan. 12, Zech. 11. Matt. 24:15, Rev. 11:1-2, 12:9-17, 13) that Israels security and safety will now be a thing of the past. No more will they dwell in safety and have the luxury to do as "they" please. For they will now be persecuted to a level unparalleled in the annals of history and suffer greatly under the hand of Lucifer and the godless nations of the world under the anti Christ (Isa. 24:5-6, Zech. 13:8-9, 14:2, Matt. 24:15-51, Rev. 12:9-17).
"The Messiah of Israel will come from Heaven's glory and destroy the armies of the anti Christ which have gathered against Israel and then He will establish His glorious Kingdom reign for a thousand years in Jerusalem"
It will be at the end of all of these events (seven years to the exact day from the strengthening of the covenant) that Almighty Gods Son, the Messiah of Israel will come from Heaven's glory and destroy the armies of the anti Christ which have gathered against Israel and then He will establish His glorious Kingdom reign for a thousand years in Jerusalem (Isa. 11:1-10, Micah 4:1-3, Zech 12:8-14, 13:1, 14:1-4, Rev. 1:7, 20:6). In these brief seven years, Israel will have come full circle. Finally, it will be during this time of great testing and horrific persecution by the gentile nations under the Anti Christ (Isa. 24:5-6, Zech. 13:8-9,12:9-7,13) that Israel will turn from their godless ways and receive their Messiah and Savior, the Lord Yeshua Messiah (Deut. 4:30, Isa.25:9, 45:17, Jer. 33:16, Zech. 12:8-14,13:1,9, Rom. 11:26). It will take the Divine judgment and the natural and super natural ravishing of planet earth and her godless inhabitants (Isa. 24:5-6, Matt. 24, Rev. 13) - which concludes with the final blood bath of the Battle of Armageddon (Zech. 12:2-4, 14:1-4, Rev. 16:13-16, Rev. 19:11-21) - to bring Israel to the place of repentance and deliverance (Isa. 25:9, Zech. 12:8-14, 13:1,9).
It will be the ravishing of Israel under the anti Christ,climaxing with the global bloodbath of Armageddon at Messiah's glorious return in which Jesus Messiah will obliterate the global armies of the Anti Christ which will finally bring about a TRUE and EVERLASTING PEACE to Jerusalem (the City of Peace), to the nation of Israel and to the world (Zech. 12:4,14:2-4, Rev. 19:11-21)!
"It will be the ravishing of Israel under the anti Christ, climaxing with the global bloodbath of Armageddon at Messiah's glorious return that will finally bring about a TRUE and EVERLASTING PEACE to Jerusalem (the City of Peace) and to the nation of Israel!"
What Israel and the nations have attempted for centuries and could NEVER achieve will finally be accomplished at Almighty God the Sons second coming to earth (Psalm 2, 24:7-10, 110, Isa. 2:3, 9:6-7, 33:22, 51:5,61:1-11, Dan. 2:34-35, 44-45, 7:13-14, Micah 4:1-3, Zech. 14:16-21, Rev. 19:11-21)...
The TRUE Peace Comes to Jerusalem!
It will be ONLY by the Prince of Peace that TRUE and EVERLASTING PEACE will come to the City of Jerusalem (Isa. 9:6-7, 33:5, 53:5, 62;1, Jer. 33:16, Zech 8:3, Matt. 5:35, Rom. 10:2-4, Eph. 2:12-19, Col. 1:20, Heb. 1:3, 10:7-14). How many in vain through out the ages have sought and prayed in sincerity for the peace of Jerusalem WITHOUT knowledge nor understanding (Isa. 29:13, 58:1-8, Matt. 7:21-23, 15:3, 7-9, Mark 12:24)? Throughout the last 2600 years, how many sons of Abraham have totally missed the reality and truth of the Holy Scriptures of just how this Divine peace MUST be established (Deut. 9:6, 28-30,31:27, Lev. 26, Psalm 78, Isa. 53:5, Ezek. 12:2, Dan 9:26, Matt. 15:3-7-9, Luke 13:34-35, Acts 7, Rom. 9-11, Rev. 1:7)?
"Through out the last 2600 years, how many sons of Abraham have totally missed the reality and truth of the Holy Scriptures of just how this Divine peace MUST be established"
My dear friend, please try to comprehend that ALL current global events are indeed heading to this destination and EXPONENTIALLY beyond (Rev. 19:11-21)! Remember the words of the Lord Jesus in which He specifically told His disciples to pray, After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven (Matt. 6:9-10). Oh my beloved! How many people pray this prayer day after day and are absolutely oblivious to what it is testifying to and stating! Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. .
It will indeed take the horrific seven year tribulation period to wake up the Jew and the gentile nations to this reality (Isa. 24:5-6, Rev. 6:14-17, 17:2).There is absolutely NO hope for Israel and the nations of the world apart for their Creator and Savior, Jesus Messiah (John 3:16-17, Eph. 2:12-16, Heb 1:2-3). It will NOT be until the Jew is reconciled with Jehovah God and receive their Messiah as their sacrificial lamb, propitiation and Savior that the nations WILL BE BLESSED (Isa. 2:1-4, 19:23-25, Micah 4:1-4, Zech. 8:23, Rom. 11:12) and TRUE DIVINE PEACE will go forth out of Jerusalem unto the entire world (Isa. 2:3-4,33:16, 62:1, Jer. 33:5)!
"It will NOT be until the Jew is reconciled with Jehovah God and receive their Messiah as their sacrificial lamb, propitiation and Savior that the nations WILL BE BLESSED and TRUE DIVINE PEACE will go forth out of Jerusalem unto the entire world"
My friend, do you have a saving relationship to Jesus Messiah the Savior of the world (Psalm 110:1, Isa. 43:11,52:13-15, 53)? All depends on this very union. His death, burial and resurrection to the Right Hand of Almighty God is the center piece of all ETERNITY (Gen. 22:8, Psalm 110:1, Isa. 53, 1 Cor. 15:1-4, Rev. 1:18,13:8, 21-22:1-5). He will indeed come back to establish His Kingdom on His earth and the gates of Hell shall not nor NEVER prevent this from happening (Dan. 2:44-45, 7:13-14, Rev. 1:7, 16:13-16, 19:11-21).
As the days grow nearer to the Day of the Lord be sure that you know the Savior and Messiah of Israel as dictated by the Holy Scriptures!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
END TIMES, DREAMS, VISIONS, PROPHECY PING LIST
. . . MORE VERY PLAUSIBLE AND BIBLICAL POINTS . . .
worth some prayerful pondering
Time will tell. I still do not think anyone has it all figured out . . . hindsight is soooooooo much clearer.
However, imho, this set of scenario’s is as good as any and better than many.
Thanks for the ping!
Is that you, Reverend Caning?
Thank You Quix!, GiovannaNicoletta, I read this and did not find too many problems. Is this in line with your concept of coming events based on God’s Word?
Thanks for the ping Quix, this looks like a pretty detailed theory. I’ll have to go over it in detail and see if I agree or not, but at least he’s providing Scriptural support instead of just plucking ideas out of thin air.
If you mean to mock someone, at least get the name right. This is not Harold Camping, this theory has nothing in common with Camping's theory and unlike most other theories out there, it seems to be based more on what is actually written rather than what was passed down to us over the centuries.
I looked over your profile and can see readily that you're not a troll and are quite conservative, at least on economic and most social matters, so as a fellow FReeper I would humbly request that you treat this thread and topic with respect. I don't ask that you accept it at face value, as I love debates on this material, but I do suggest not mocking someone without first researching their views and being able to provide a counter-view of your own as well.
Thank you for your polite response. I feared Caning was not right but I was too lazy to check it out. Regardless, I am always amused by the modern day Nostradamuses who read the Biblical tea leaves, do their own calculations, as many others have, and determine they know the timing of God’s plan. This despite Jesus saying no one would know the hour of God’s return, that it would come suddenly and unexpectedly. To me, that trumps anything in Revelations.
The recent embarrassment by Rev. Camping was simply a reference point.
If you would like to know my religious views there are many exchanges from the past with Alamo Girl and Betty Boop that will reveal them if you care to go to the trouble.
I completely understand that, but it is also a topic that has been transformed into a lightening rod for Religion Trolls so I'm a little wary of anyone who makes the connection to Camping's foolishness.
Regardless, I am always amused by the modern day Nostradamuses who read the Biblical tea leaves, do their own calculations, as many others have, and determine they know the timing of Gods plan.

I understand and fully agree that Christ Himself said that no man would know the day and hour of His return, but His return and the Great Tribulation are two different events. One thing that I would ask, however, is that since many of the Scriptures located within the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ are by Christ Himself, how do you square that with what you stated? If Christ Himself attested to Revelation's accuracy, which He did in Revelation 22:16-19, how can He also contradict it? Here's the verses I just made mention of in reference.
 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, [and] the bright and morning star.  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this book. - Rev 22:16-19 KJV
I think it's pretty clear that not only is the Book of Revelation equal with the other books in Canon, it also comes with it's own promise of retribution towards those who would add to or remove from it, which is not something that is done with the other Books of the Bible. It seems pretty clear that Christ deems this Book's inerrancy to be a critical detail for Believers to understand, so if that's the case why do you hold the idea that it is somehow less inspired than the others? Something isn't tracking here, but maybe you have a nuanced approach to this that I am not aware of as yet.
I've always been under the opposite impression that it would be Israel's last chance for survival that they sign 'peace' treaties with their enemies, a view that never quite made sense to me (if their enemies had sworn to wipe them from earth, why would the enemies agree to any treaty at all with what's left of Israel? Why wouldn't they just go ahead and finish them off?)
Interesting view presented above - one that I'd never considered, and it does seem to make more sense to me. With Israel becoming dominant, it would be their enemies that feel the need for a treaty.
I am not a Biblical scholar or even that well versed in it. In my teens, 55-60 years ago, I was a daily and avid reader of the New Testament. I considered the Old Testament to be simply a history of the Jews and the New Covenant with God to have replaced what came before. I started reading the Old Testament and think that the story of Adam, Eve and the Garden of Eden are the basis for understanding Christianity. However, I soon got lost in all the “begat”s and moved on. Still, through church attendance I absorbed a fair amount of the gospel in the OT.
I thought Daniel must either be on peyote or truly in communication with God with his dream interpretations. His readings were really off the wall but turned out to be correct.
Yet, concerning this thread and Israel, wasn’t Israel in this very same situation in 1949, 1967, and 1973? Why does the present circumstance all of a sudden become the omen for the Rapture and the Tribulation? As with Camping, there have been other similar “omens” that proved wrong.
Doesn’t this run the risk of being afoul of Jesus’ warning about adding to or taking from the scripture?
Seems so to me, too, paladin1_dcs.
And yet I also see the sense of Mind-numbed Robot's observation:
...I am always amused by the modern day Nostradamuses who read the Biblical tea leaves, do their own calculations, as many others have, and determine they know the timing of Gods plan. This despite Jesus saying no one would know the hour of Gods return, that it would come suddenly and unexpectedly. To me, that trumps anything in Revelations.Indeed, Christ says that no one knows the timing of His return, not even the Son, but only the Father. So I'm a little bemused when people pore over the scriptures in order to make accurate descriptions of the future, i.e., the End Times. As if we had any idea of what time even is, from God's perspective, Who is not in time.
Modern man seems to have a mania for analyses of this type. He seems to have forgotten that "we see as if through a glass, darkly." Our modern analytical methods can never remove that condition, nor compensate for it in any way. We crave certainty, but cannot have it.
Having said that, I very much admire the account titled "How the Peace of Jerusalem Will Be Established." It is a cogent story, well-grounded in citation of the prophets and the gospel accounts. It also seems well supported by breaking events in the Middle East/Arab world....
Do some people think the Book of Revelation is NOT equal with the other books in the Canon? I wonder why they would think that.
It seems to me the Book of Revelation is the capstone of the entire biblical revelation from first to last (Alpha to Omega), the final cause that draws all of biblical history, OT and NT, unto itself.
So I guess there is a sense in which it could be said that Revelation is "not equal" with the other books of Holy Scripture. Moreover, in it Christ personally guarantees its inerrancy and as you point out, paladin1_dcs, this is the only book of the Holy Canon in which this happens.
Thank you all for this fascinating discussion!
Thank you so much for posting this excellent article, The Ignorant Fisherman!
I absolutely agree that we must be vigilant in our defense of Scripture, that we are to never add to it nor delete portions of it for our own comfort. However, that being said, I must point out some details in Scripture which speak to the situation now as possibly leading up to the events of Revelation.
First, to show what the differences are between the current situation in Israel and the situation in 1949, 1967 and 1973, you must understand that one of the biggest prophecies of all is concerning Jerusalem's rise as the primary focus of the whole world. That Prophecy, found in Zechariah 12, has to date never been fulfilled. I've included it here for reference.
 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah [and] against Jerusalem.  And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.- Zec 12:2-3 KJV
If you'll notice the portion I highlighted, the very first thing you notice is that the people all around Israel will lay siege to both Israel and Jerusalem. While this has happened in the past, the results of that siege have never happened before. The portion that reads "...all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces," means, literally, that those nations who attempt to besiege Jerusalem will be torn to shreds. The Hebrew word used here, sarat, means to literally lacerate or be torn to pieces.
Furthermore, you'll notice that this siege is not just Israel, but Jerusalem as well. To answer your earlier question about why this situation is different, just ask yourself this.
Who completely controlled Jerusalem during the 1949 War of Independence and the 1967 Six Day War? It wasn't Israel. Israel only captured part of Jerusalem during the 1949 war and only captured the remaining portions at the conclusion of the 1967 war.
Furthermore, while Israel controlled all of Jerusalem during the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Jerusalem was never surrounded and besieged.
So, now that we've established that the events of Zechariah 12 have not taken place and events now are beginning to align to allow it to finally take place, you can see why we are watching these events with growing excitement. While we cannot know the day or hour, we can know from watching and reading carefully that we're very, very close now.
That Jerusalem is presently a 'burdensom stone' at present is beyond reproach; nobody can deny that WWIII can erupt out of Jerusalem over the course of any arbitrary hour from now until whenever.
Every eye in the world casts a very wary glance towards Jerusalem each and every day.
I absolutely agree that we will not know the day or hour of His return, however, we are told to watch for His return and we're told that we will know it's growing close due to how current events will unfold. Christ mentioned this in His parable of the Fig Tree, stating that when the tree blooms, the time of the harvest is near, meaning that the time for Christ to come for His Bride is close. This is not to say that we can know the day and hour, just that we will be able to discern the general season.
Also, I would also like to point out that you raise a very, very good point in regards to the fact that God is not subject to time. I suspect, due to clues provided in Scripture stating that God knows the end from the beginning, that Time, as we know it, is actually not only finite but already completed as well. From our point of view, Time is still progressing, but from God's point of view not only does it have a beginning and an ending, it has already ended and we, presently, are merely playing out our parts in it. This theory would seem to fit with the paradoxical Scriptures which seems to state that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, yet the dead in Christ rise again in the resurrection at His second coming.
It would also neatly fix the perception issue we have of free-will versus election and a few other, interesting ideas that have come out of quantum mechanics. All in all, it's an incredibly interesting subject that I'm looking forward to understanding more once this mortal finally puts on immortality and I'm given my resurrected body and all knowledge is finally made known to us.
God Bless and thank you. TGBTG!
My friend the more I studied this I saw that the other position did not fit. As a matter of fact one had to force fit it. When looked in this light it all sings.
Ezek 38-39 and Rev 11:2-4 are the keys.
Thanks for your reply!
Thanks for getting my back!
