PROPHECY HEADLINES: Israel closes border with Egypt after terror warning; New microchip implanting technology could lead to ‘mark of the beast’; Scientists predict unprecedented outbreak of lyme disease this year
PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled “Battle of Armageddon (Part 1)” from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future.”
Armageddon! The mere mention of it causes us to tremble. Armageddon is the ultimate biblical symbol for the great war at the end of the age. Its very name conjures up visions of global destruction, worldwide devastation, and indescribable human suffering. It is the war to end all wars! The people and planet of earth will suffer untold misery, and millions will die.
Revelation 16:14-16 tells us that the ultimate conflict of human history will take place at Armageddon in the Valley of Jezreel. It is the place where the kings of the earth will assemble for battle on the “great day of God the Almighty.” The name Armageddon (Har-Magedon) is taken from the plain of Megiddo near Mount Carmel. The ancient ruins of the Old Testament city of Megiddo still stand as gaunt testimony to the strategic significance of this area.
OCCUPY UNTIL I COME: “Occupy Until I Come!” (Part 18) based on the parable of the nobleman who went away and left talents for his servants to use in his absence. J.C. Ryle writes:
Your bodily health and strength, your mental gifts and capacities, your money and your earthly possessions, your rank and position in life, your example and influence with others, your liberty to read the Bible and hear the Gospel, your plentiful supply of means of grace — all these are your “pounds.” All these are to be used and employed with a continual reference to the glory of Christ. All these are His gifts. “Of Him come riches and honor.” “His is the silver, and His the gold.” “His is your body, and His is your spirit.” “He appoints your habitation: He gives you life and breath.” You are not your own: you are bought with a price. Surely it is no great matter, if He bids you honor Him and serve Him with all that you have.
