Final war : Armageddon

Armageddon is a real actual place in Northern Israel. It is also called :
Valley of Megiddo
... Jezreel Valley (NW Israel) ...... Esdraelon Plain .. Land bridge between East + West


Man has been at war with God ever since the Garden of Eden [ Original Sin ].
War is the epitome of rebellion and self-will
James 4:1,2. But man is foolish to
contend with the Lord , for Our Lord is "a Man of War,
Exodus 15:3.

In these Last Days, man’s weapons of choice against God are science and technology (worshipping intellect and technique). All of these gifts are from God, but man claimed them for himself, abused and manipulated them and used them unlawfully. We made them gods, and then ourselves gods, and then defied Almighty God.
Jude 15,16.
Man will continue to use technology rebelliously against God, until High Noon, Armageddon...the moment of Truth.
Revelation / Apocalypse 16:16


Now, Scientists love vials, and oddly enough God has 7 vials of wrath prepared for all who misuse science and technology, in defiance of God. Those who are Godly, using science and technology to the honor and glory of God, are "not appointed unto wrath" but unto Salvation in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:9.
Let’s take a look at the 7 vials God has prepared for all the unGodly, culminating in the Battle of Armageddon.


"And I heard a great voice out of the Temple (in heaven) saying to the 7 angels:
‘Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.’ ".
And the first went and poured out his vial upon the earth;
and there fell a noisome and grievous SORE upon the men which had the MARK
of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image."
Rev. 16:1, 2
Please see "Shopping with 666" http://hopetotheend.com/ch1p1.html

A lot of people have a "hell can wait" attitude, and although they were severely warned of the consequences of hell in Rev. 14: 9-11 ( for taking the 666 mark of the beast ), they just can’t see hell as applying to them. It’s sort of a mental block..."hell doesn’t exist"...."I don’t care".."who really knows?"...etc. The problem here is much like gambling with all the odds against you. You can’t play against the "House" and win. You can’t fight against God and win.
Please see 'Pascal's Wager' http://hopetotheend.com/wager.html 

You can pretend reality doesn’t exist, but that doesn’t make it so. Reality has its’ ways of becoming real to you. Discovering reality can be too late, when it has irreversible and undesired consequences. Why put yourself in a corner with no way out? Why play "Eternal Jeopardy" with your soul? Why fight against the Only One who can help you? Why oppose yourself, and shun all Common Sense? Why take the risk of sealing your fate and being Too Late to change, by taking the 666 mark of the Beast, or by worshipping his image?

God knows the human heart. He knows that "gain today, pain tomorrow" often influences man to make wrong choices. So He gave us some "pain today" to think about. If -- on this side of Eternity --- there are harmful consequences for taking the 666 mark, perhaps we will reconsider and NOT take the mark, believing all the harmful consequences for doing so ( hell ).
Please see:

Perhaps the 666 mark of the beast will be voluntary and optional in the beginning. As we see our neighbors and friends accumulate hideous and grievous SORES--due to the fact that the body rejects implants,
 then we will be further motivated to believe the Word of God and reject taking the 666 mark.
Please see: # 57 and # 67  in the chip index http://hopetotheend.com/chipindex.html

And moreover, because of the eternal loss of one's soul to hell, only a Fool would take the mark-- regardless of the hardships involved. Now is temporary. Hell is forever...whether you believe it or not. 

VIAL #2 OCEANS OF BLOOD ( non life-sustaining)

"And the Second Angel poured out his vial upon the sea (oceans) and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea." Rev.16:3

In this judgement, our oceans putrefy with dead algae and all life forms, taking away our oxygen suppliers. Already our Oceans are decaying with radioactive wastes and deadly pollutants. As the deterioration process overtakes the Regenerative processes, then the collapse of the ecological system will be swift and total.

Acid Oceans
"The change, of 0.1 of a pH unit, sounds trivial when expressed in the logarithmic scale that science uses, but it translates to the upper layers of the oceans already being 30 percent more acid than in preindustrial times.  The change is being causes by increased atmospheric levels of greenhouse gases, in particular carbon dioxide. In addition to forcing climate change, more carbon dioxide combines with water and produces carbonic acid."


"And the Third Angel poured out his vial upon the Rivers,
and Fountains of Waters (Water-Tables, springs, lakes)
and they became blood."
Rev.16: 4

Already many of our world’s rivers have become over polluted with insecticides, raw sewage, untreated bacterias and viruses. Our rivers today are becoming bio-chem Styxs.[ rivers of death ]

It is obvious that Vials 2 and 3 must manifest themselves close to the end of the Great Tribulation , for man cannot live without water, nor without our oxygen-suppliers. Our once "blue planet" is becoming muddy, bloody reddish-brown......and God saw that it was bad.

"And I heard the Angel of the Waters say,
‘Thou art Righteous, O LORD, which are, and was, and shall be
Because Thou hast judged thus.’
For they have shed the blood of saints, and prophets,
And Thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy’.
"And I heard another (voice) out of the altar say,
(where the souls of the martyred are...
Rev.16: 9,10 )
Even so, Lord God Almighty, True and Righteous are Thy judgements.’ "
(Rev. 16: 5--7)

We must keep in mind, that the oceans and rivers are the trade-routes of the world, whereupon cruel-commerce was plied. Justice is now being repaid. In dealing with unrepentant sin, God  repays in kind...blood for blood. Rev. 18: 6, 20 and Rev. 19:2

VIAL #4 -- SCORCHING HEAT ; Intensifying the heat 7 times ??
 Isaiah 30:26 ; and  Daniel 3:19

"And the Fourth Angel poured out his vial upon the Sun;
and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire."
"And men were scorched with Great HEAT, and blasphemed the Name of God,
Which had power over these plagues:
And they repented not to give Him Glory."
Revelation 16:8,9 (please also see Deuteronomy 32:24)

Will the Russian space-mirrors ( reflecting fire from the sun ) intensify
the sun's rays and greatly increase scorching heat on our planet? Time will tell.
Znamya 2.5
Search archive: Electronic Telegraph "Russians launch new moon"... 22 day of July,1998 International Section
Also see Cutting Edge Weather Control : http://www.cuttingedge.org/articles/weather.cfm

A swarm of mirrors flying in formation in space are the best defence against an asteroid hitting Earth, a study has concluded.
Mirrors sent up into space would reflect the sun’s rays to heat up the asteroid and knock it off course to avoid a devastating impact with the Earth. The technique was found to be the best of several options. "

Sky mirrors illuminating the earth

Bad moon on the Rise --- Znamya means "banner" ; a second moon in the sky

There are some interesting Scriptures that apply here. One is found in Isaiah 30:26...
"Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of His people, and healeth the stroke of their wound."
What the Bible says about Global Warming: 

Another interesting verse is found in
Malachi 4:1...
"For behold the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave neither root nor branch."

This awful, unbearable scorching Heat will affect our crops and animals as well as man. Rising temperatures give way to rising tempers as family abuse and crime escalate. Our Ozone Layer is depleting daily, allowing ultra-violet radiation from the sun to bombard us without that necessary shield. Skin cancer is epidemic today, and more deadly. Lay all this at the feet of technology. Man’s manipulations and contrivances ultimately boomerang back on him. If this HEAT is bad, what will they think when they are in the Lake of Fire for all eternity?

Will these Znamya mirrors also be used to create illusive images in the sky ? Time will tell.

Increasing daylight
the Russians want to illuminate us: with ZNAMYA 25 m of large parabolic reflectors like an umbrella and at night be lit up also Germany is to be stretched with sunlight. The object will a brightness of -15 likes to -16 may have and thus 10mal as the full moon be brighter: "

Night-time Regatta
"Znamya, it was this Russian space mirror of 25 meters which was to shine in the sky of the large cities of the northern hemisphere. Conceived to take part in a space regatta which finally never took place, the machine had received a new vocation: to see whether it were possible to reflect the sunlight on the large cities during the long nights of winter. The project, very criticized, at least promised to be spectacular."

Flotilla of mirrors
the European Space Agency (Esa) is preparing to launch a programme aimed at developing less complex missions for pinpointing stars with life-bearing planets. If these succeed, the Exo-Earth Imager could follow them.
Labeyrie is envisaging a system made up of 10,000 mirror-telescopes, each with a 3m diameter. This will create a camera that has an effective aperture of 100 kilometres: not enough to pin point ET in his bath, but big enough to study his home planet.
In short, if there are alien worlds with life on them in our galactic neighbourhood, then scientists - led by Europe - will find them, even if these life-forms are no more than humble plants or bacteria, a point stressed by David Southwood"

The night sky as a movie screen
Space-based, laser-generating satellites project simultaneous images to every part of the planet, in every language, in every dialect according to region. Specifically, the show will consist of laser projections of multiple holographic images to different parts of the world, each receiving different images according to predominating regional/national religious faiths".


"And the Fifth Angel poured out his vial upon the seat ( emerods? 1 Samuel 5 )
of the Beast; "and his kingdom was full of Darkness." [ demonic occultism ]
"And they gnawed their tongues for pain, and blasphemed the God of Heaven,
because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds."

The Darkness mentioned in this judgement upon anti-Christ’s kingdom could have these applications:
1. absence of light: short-circuits, black-outs, brown-outs etc... "blue-outs" --- EMP bomb attacking our grids ?
Solar Storm: Planetary disaster http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1165045/Solar-storm-cause-planetary-disaster-time-warn-scientists.html
2. blindness...especially for those who took the MARK upon their forehead
3. lack of knowledge and information...breakdown of computer-telecommunication
e-bombs destroy radio-frequency in electronics
due to solar flares electromagnetic storms; CME's
see also.....
rolling blackouts, brownouts, blueouts.

4. errant judgement, confusion, perplexity, bad decisions
5. Satanic depression, malaise etc.

"And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil." John 3:19

In the words of Thomas Hobbes: "The condition of man is a condition of war of every one against every one."

"And the Sixth Angel poured out his vial upon the great River Euphrates and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the EAST might be prepared."
(China, India, Korea etc.) "Pekod, Shoa, Koa ???"
Ezekiel 23:21...
Nuclear nations of the Far East.

Euphrates River drying up
"The Euphrates is drying up. Strangled by the water policies of Iraq’s neighbors, Turkey and Syria; a two-year drought; and years of misuse by Iraq and its farmers, the river is significantly smaller than it was just a few years ago. Some officials worry that it could soon be half of what it is now.
The drought is widespread in Iraq. The area sown with wheat and barley in the rain-fed north is down roughly 95 percent from the usual, and the date palm and citrus orchards of the east are parched. For two years rainfall has been far below normal, leaving the reservoirs dry, and American officials predict that wheat and barley output will be a little over half of what it was two years ago.
It is a crisis that threatens the roots of Iraq’s identity, ... as the land between two rivers .....
The most frequently cited culprits are the Turkish and Syrian governments. Iraq has plenty of water, but it is a downstream country. There are at least seven dams on the Euphrates in Turkey and Syria, according to Iraqi water officials, and with no treaties or agreements, the Iraqi government is reduced to begging its neighbors for water.....
We have a real thirst in Iraq,” said Ali Baban, the minister of planning. “Our agriculture is going to die, our cities are going to wilt, and no state can keep quiet in such a situation
This year it’s [Ed: Southern Iraq ] just a desert,” he said.
"In the southeast, where the Euphrates nears the end of its 1,730-mile journey and mingles with the less salty waters of the Tigris before emptying into the Persian Gulf, the situation is grave."

Chinese to militarize space
"China will develop an air force with integrated capabilities for both offensive and defensive operations in space as well as in the air", People's Liberation Army (PLA) Air Force commander Xu Qiliang said."

Chinese military on the rise
China has invested in new technologies for cyber- and space warfare, in addition to sustaining and modernizing its nuclear arsenal, the report said. The Chinese military also is expanding and improving its fleet of submarines, and hopes to build a number of new aircraft carriers, the report said.
Between 2003 and 2007, China also sold nearly $7 billion worth of conventional weapons around the world, mostly to Pakistan, the report said."

Japan militarizes Space

Japan and China
But Japan counts on China as its top commercial partner, while Beijing is eager to ease regional friction as it seeks a greater global role.
"China and Japan have no other way but to take the path of peace, friendship and cooperation as neighbours and countries with significant influence to Asia and the world," Hu told a press conference with Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda."

Japan and India
"Abe, an advocate of boosting ties with India as a means of tackling the power balance in Asia against China's looming influence, is also expected to face lukewarm support on that ground in parliament."

Japanese Defense Minister
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe chose hawkish [ Yuriko ] Koike to succeed
TOKYO -- Japan's first female defense minister was sworn in Wednesday, pledging to restore trust in the government after her predecessor resigned for suggesting the U.S. atomic bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima were inevitable."

Koike will work to restore confidence in Japan's defense policy, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yasuhisa Shiozaki said at a regular press conference. A graduate of Cairo University fluent in Arabic and English, Koike is a former television journalist and member of the lower house. There is no plan to replace her as security adviser, Shiozaki said."
Abe's popularity has plunged after a government agency said it can't identify 50 million pension records, resulting in possibly millions of dollars in unpaid benefits."

Japan's Military
Japan’s 241,000-member military, though smaller than those of its neighbors, is considered Asia’s most sophisticated. Though flat, its $40 billion military budget has ranked among the world’s top five in recent years. Japan has also tapped nonmilitary budgets to launch spy satellites and strengthen its coast guard recently."

Highway for the Kings of the East
"1 July 2005 The Intergovernmental Agreement on the United Nations-backed 140,000-kilometre
Asian Highway Network
linking the vast region from St. Petersburg to Singapore and Seoul to Istanbul comes into force on Monday, facilitating trade and tourism and opening up landlocked countries
Twenty-seven out of the 32 participating member States have signed the Agreement. When finished, the Highway will ease border crossing for people, vehicles [ Ed: armies ] and goods and give the much-needed benefits to landlocked countries."

Asian Highway from Japan to Turkey
BANGKOK - Asian governments will soon have a new symbol to illustrate their increasing spirit of regional cooperation: a network of highways that links 32 countries spanning Japan at one end and Turkey at the other. An important milestone on the "Silk Route of the Modern Age" was crossed July 4, 2005 when the Intergovernmental Agreement on the Asian Highway Network came into force."

"First opened for signature in April 2004, the agreement has already been signed by 27 countries while some key members, including Japan, China, South Korea, Vietnam, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Cambodia, have also ratified it. Developed by the Bangkok-based Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), a United Nations agency, the 141,000 km road is expected to greatly enhance intra-regional trade and facilitate tourism.
"This is not just a transport agreement, but a desire by member countries to work toward globalization for all."

"When fully operational, this trans-continental stretch of roads will link Asian capitals, connect industrial and agriculture centers, join major seaports to river ports and connect major container terminals to depots, according to the ESCAP's "Asian Highway Handbook".

"Today, a vehicle beginning a journey on route AH1 of this trans-continental highway could start in Tokyo, get connected by ferry to South Korea and then drive through North Korea, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Burma, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran and end in Istanbul. "

Practicing for Armageddon...Jan 28-2001

"And He (God) gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue:
   Rev. 16:12-16    har' megiddo       mound of megiddo

Armageddon is located in the Valley of  Megiddo, ( many good links) in Northern Israel.
It is also known as the Esdraelon Plain and is found somewhat between Mt. Carmel and Mt. Tabor, and is approximately 13 acres. It is along route 66. It has 26 layers of civilzations (
13 x 2 ).
It is 6 miles east of Haifa and 70 miles north from Jerusalem.
Inter Active Map http://www.ourfatherlutheran.net/biblehomelands/galilee/galilee.htm ( click on towns )
Jezreel Valley http://www.ourfatherlutheran.net/biblehomelands/galilee/jezreel.htm

Today the Jezreel Valley is a wide expanse of flowing grasses and tender wildflowers.
One can hardly imagine the carnage to take place there, as the gentle breezes blow.
Rev. 9:13-19 tells us that 1/3 of earth’s population will be killed because of this Battle.

If 1/4 of the world’s population ( 6 billion) were already killed off in Rev. 6:8, that would take approximately 1 and a 1/2 billion people.
This Battle of Armageddon will take another 1 and a 1/2 billion people, leaving approximately
3 Billion people remaining.. The Ball-park figure for those killed during the Great Tribulation is 3 Billion gone, or 1/2of today’s population....based upon 6 Billion. Let’s see what more
Revelation Chapter 9 has to say about this:

"And the Sixth Angel sounded (a trumpet...call to arms)
And I heard a Voice from the four corners of the Golden Altar which is before God,
saying to the Sixth Angel which had the trumpet,
‘Loose the 4 Angels which are bound in the Great River Euphrates.’

And the 4 Angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year;
[ Ed: approximately 13 months prior to Armageddon, the River Euphrates will be drying up]

For to slay the third part of men".
And the number of the army of the horsemen (
from the East...most likely China) were 200 million:
And I heard the number of them."

"And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them,
having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth (
reddish-orange) and brimstone (mortar / ammunition )
"And the heads of the horses (
tanks?) were as the heads of lions ( roaring?);

"and out of their mouths issued: Fire and Smoke and Brimstone.
"By these Three were the third of men killed,
by the Fire, and by the Smoke, and by the Brimstone,
which issued out of their mouths " (
like a dragon )
"For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails:
for their tails were like unto serpents,
And had heads, and with them they do hurt."
Rev. 9: 13-19

Mortar for HMMWV Tanks
"Singapore Technologies Kinetics has unveiled its 120 mm Super Rapid Advanced Mortar System for a range of combat vehicles. The company has installed the system on the AM General High Mobility Multi-purpose Wheeled Vehicle 4x4 chassis, a staple of Middle East militaries supplied by the United States.
Executives said the HMMWV system, which underwent firing and mobility trials at IDEX-2005 in Abu Dhabi in February 2005, has been installed in the rear cargo area. The 120 mm system could be fired at up to 18 rounds per minute.
The firing platform would carry about 12 rounds of 120 mm ammunition plus the crew.
Another HMMWV would carry additional 120 mm ammunition."

China has Star Wars Plan
China now has some two dozen missiles aimed at the United States.
Experts say that number could increase tenfold in the next decade." [ 24 x 10 = 240 missiles by 2011; probably a lot more by now, 2016 ]

China's Master Plan to Destroy America

The CIA’s own translation agency reported that this book identifies the U.S. as China’s main enemy, and details how a weak nation can destroy America using unorthodox attacks – like the 9-11 attacks. "

"China is preparing itself and encouraging others to engage the U.S. in total war. The book is chock full of plans and strategies, from using computers, to smuggling illegal immigrants, to manipulating the stock markets, to influencing the U.S. media, to using weapons of mass destruction – all to destroy America."

"The doctrine of total war outlined in Unrestricted Warfare clearly demonstrates that the People’s Republic of China is preparing to confront the United States and our allies by conducting “asymmetrical” or multidimensional attacks on almost every aspect of our social, economic and political life. "

China and Laser Warfare
China is developing high-technology arms, including laser weapons and radio-frequency bombs, to boost its ability to successfully carry out warfare against the United States and other advanced military powers, according to a recent Pentagon report.
exotic weapons development efforts.
     Among the key weapons are:
     •Laser guns that can be used to blind soldiers and pilots and knock out U.S. space-based intelligence and communications networks.
     •Radio-frequency weapons that will electronically cripple command and control electronic systems and make it impossible for militaries hit by the bombs or missile warheads to conduct integrated warfare operations.
     •Information operations from computers that would attack computer-based infrastructures with viruses or other malicious codes.......
China places great importance on the development of surprise weapons or trump-card weapons that will attack critical weaknesses of their enemies.......
   Chinese officials have announced that their goal is to turn spacecraft into weaponry platforms for space warfare."  

IFV... Infantry Fighting Vehicles upgraded by Russia...BMP 2 and BMP 3
The upgrade would also include the new AG-17 rocket-propelled grenade launchers.
The system is meant to pierce enemy armor"

This army from the East, it appears, will fight with tanks equipped with guns, bio-chem warfare and missiles. Will they be facing off with the West ..... which is prepared to strike from outer space with pre-programmed laser missiles? Or do both East and West expect to defeat the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to this earth? What madness! What folly, says

Final 5th Milstar in orbit

"Milstars act as relay stations in space, serving users on foot, ships, submarines and aircraft by transmitting voice communications, data, imagery and video," the industry magazine Spaceflight Now said in its on-line edition.
"Milstar is the world's most secure, nuclear survivable, space-based communications system," said the magazine.

The satellite launched Tuesday "will complete the Milstar satellite constellation which provides near-global coverage for the President, the nation's strategic forces, the Air Force's missile warning assets and our operationally deployed military forces," said the magazine. "


Milstar photos
Developed in the 1980s, the Milstar satellites began launching in 1994 to form a communications network for senior U.S. officials that would be dependable, jam-proof and immune from interception."

"Today, Milstars are linked together in a space-based ring that covers virtually the entire planet to beam voice, data and imagery transmissions. The "cross-linked" satellite system eliminates the need for land-based relay stations, reducing the chances of communications being intercepted on the ground, the Air Force says."

"Milstar can now send an air tasking order to its destination in less than six seconds, a vast improvement from years past when it would take an hour. Officials also said an 8x10 image used to take 22 hours to send will be transferred in just two minutes."

"The telescope is scheduled to spend about three and a half years [ Ed: time of the Great Tribulation ] looking at the region of space, since before it is able to confirm the existence of exoplanets like Earth, it will need to witness at least two orbits around a star."

"Trailing the Earth in its orbit around the sun, Kepler will aim a 95-megapixel camera on a patch of sky the size of an outstretched hand that contains more than
4.5 million detectable stars. Of that total, the science team has picked some 300,000 that are of the right age, composition, and brightness to host Earth-like planets. Over the life of the mission, more than 100,000 of those will be actively monitored by Kepler."

Weaponizing space
"Space-based laser and kinetic energy weapons will be used against those who create obstructions to U.S. satellites. Logically, this will lead to the creation of a space theater of war."

Space-based missiles could save the world

But what good is all this observing if there are no plans for averting disaster? Claudio Maccone at the Centre for Astrodynamics in Turin claims to have worked out the best way to deflect an asteroid. In the past, studies have assumed missiles will be launched from Earth, but Maccone says space-based missiles would be far more effective. "You are in the worst possible situation to deflect a body when it's pointing at you," he says.
To get a missile into the right elliptical orbit would require several long burns from Earth, but just one tiny push from certain orbits in space, says Maccone. So he recommends putting space-based missile launchers at "Lagrangian points". These are locations in space where the gravity of the Earth and Moon balances out in such a way that a satellite maintains its position relative to each body with minimal correction from its thrusters."

Targeting outer-space objects
: European Space Agency (Esa) plans "Don Quixote"
Spanish company, Deimos-Space plan :
"The company has come up with a plan, which it calls the Don Quixote mission, to launch a pair of probe spacecraft called Hidalgo and Sancho at a far off asteroid.
One would hit the asteroid at extremely high speed, deflecting it slightly from its orbit.
The other would observe the asteroid and make highly accurate measurements of what happened to it after the impact."

CAPS system for meteors, astroids and any other incoming "object"

The lasers could divert -- not destroy -- the threatening rocks, the scientists said. Pulses from the laser would heat an asteroid's surface to the point where a small part of the surface explodes. The explosion does not remove enough of the asteroid to render it harmless, but it does give it a tiny kick to one side. A long series of such little kicks would be enough to push an asteroid off a collision course with Earth.
Campbell suggested basing a laser either on the Moon or at one of the libration points -- spots in space where the gravity of Earth and the Sun cancel each other out and laser-carrying spacecraft could sit relatively motionless. Roithmayr said he envisions an option where a laser-bearing spacecraft would travel to asteroids and use their lasers to turn them aside."

"Either system would require extensive advance notice, however, because the lasers would need to fire continuously at an asteroid for a month or two -- at least to divert it. Such notice involves scanning the skies constantly with telescopes to identify and map the orbits of asteroids and comets zooming too near our planet.
One good place to place such telescopes would be the moon. Roithmayr described the Comet/Asteroid Protection System, or CAPS, which would include, as part of an overall protection system, a set of telescopes, each with apertures larger than 3 meters, placed on the moon. The large telescopes could be placed on tracks to allow them to be configured more flexibly."

The Commander-in-Chief of the Heavenly Armies (Joshua 5:13-15)
One can almost hear Handel's Messiah "Alleluia Chorus"

"And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse;
And HE (Jesus) that sat upon him was called ‘Faithful’and ‘True’
And in Righteousness HE doth Judge and make War."

"His 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."

"And His Name is called The WORD of God "
see John 1
And the armies which were in heaven followed upon white horses" [ that's us, the saints! ]

Rev. 19:11-14

Revelation Illustrated Pat Marvenko Smith

One would think that beholding this sight alone would make the fields of Megiddo white with flags of surrender. You would think that stark terror would grip every living soul on planet earth. But the Valley of Jezreel will not be white with surrender--- it will be red with the blood of rebellion. These soldiers of misfortune are those of whom Jude spoke of:

"And Enoch ... prophesied'... saying,
‘BEHOLD! The Lord cometh with 10,000 of His saints...
To execute Judgement upon all, and to convince all, that are unGodly among them
of all their unGodly deeds which they have unGodly committed,
And of all their hard speeches which unGodly sinners have spoken against Him."
They must have had a pompous pre-war convocation) Jude 14,15

These ‘thousands of saints’ refer to all the Believers who will come back with Christ at the Battle of Armageddon.

The blood from this battle will flow upon the necks of the horses.
"And the winepress was trodden without the city , and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of 200 miles [ approximately ]  ... Revelation 14:20
Editor: This most likely will refer to
fallen horses in battle.

Russia to use Horses in military conflicts....Dec. 29-2001

The scene continues....

"And out of His (Jesus Christ) mouth goeth a sharp sword,
That with it He might smite the nations:
And He shall rule them with a rod of iron"
echoing Psalm 2
And He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God."
And He hath on His vesture, and on His thigh a Name written:
‘KING of kings and LORD of lords.’ " Rev. 19:15,16

This is so awesome, it defies description. At this point, Victory is so assured, that even before the Battle begins, the Angel calls all the fowls of Heaven to banquet on the flesh of kings, captains, mighty men, horses, and all men...free and bond... both great and small. (Rev.19:17,18).
Sensing the tenseness in the air, do the armies of the World finally comprehend their folly? Do they realize that before this day is over, they will be in an Eternity of terror and torment? No...in their insanity they persist.

Here is how Jeremiah 25:30-33 describes this day:
"The LORD shall roar from on high...He shall give a shout ... against All the
inhabitants of the earth. A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth.
‘Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be
raised up from the coasts of the earth."
"And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth
even unto the other end of the earth."

"And the winepress was trodden without the City (Jerusalem)
and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horses bridles
by the space of 183 miles (1600 furlongs)
Rev. 14:20

As the panorama of carnage surrounds the anti-Christ, and as he witnesses his total defeat in this battle, then,
--- with thundering silence in the air ---
"I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto Me:
For who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto Me, saith the LORD God?"
Jeremiah 30:21

This breath-taking confrontation of anti-Christ with Jesus Christ, face to face, would be intimidation enough for anyone else, it would seem. But the beast, now totally insane with rage and panic, in a final paroxysm of rebellion, actually activates THE BUTTON that sets off world-wide conflagration--the all-consuming holocaust (the 7th Vial-Judgement explained later).

A Single Command Center for ALL of our satellites ( "prince of the power of the air")  2015
"In order to maintain military dominance, the United States needs to consider all its space assets “as part of a single constellation,” Welsh said. “And if an adversary tries to deny us the capability, we must be able to respond in an integrated, coordinated fashion.”

Laser warfare:

In his crazed state of mind, he "reasons" that:
1. This final all-out detonation will perhaps defeat the Prince of Peace, Jesus.
2. Or perhaps, since the glory has now slipped from his hands, he too will seize
from Anyone Else’s Hands--the planet earth. This is known as the "Samson
Complex"....’If I go, we all go’.
..."So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slewn in his life." Judges 16:30, Isaiah 6: 11-13

The Best Computer ever --"Dawn" and "Sequoia"
"February 3, 2009 (Computerworld) The U.S. government has hired IBM to build a supercomputer with more power than all the supercomputers on the Top500 supercomputer list combined.
The planned Sequoia system, capable of 20 petaflops, will be used by the U.S. Department of Energy in its nuclear stockpile research. The fastest systems today can only reach 1 petaflop, a remarkable achievement in its own right that was met only last year

It "is the biggest leap of computing capability ever delivered to the lab," said Mark Seager, assistant department head for advanced technology at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, Calif., where the system will be housed. It's expected to be up and running in 2012.
IBM plans to build Sequoia at its Rochester, Minn., plant. "

Missiles able to be launched around the world from Israel
(will the antichrist-Beast use this for his Samson-plan ?)
"From the moment the State of Israel has the capability to launch a satellite into orbit around the earth at a height of hundreds of kilometers, it established [its] capability to launch, by means of a missile,
a payload to any location on the face of the earth,"
says the head of the Asher Institute at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Prof. Moshe Gelman, in the wake of the launch of the
Ofek 5 satellite".

"Avi Har-Even, the director-general of the Israel Space Agency (ISA), explained to
Ha'aretz that the Ofek 5 launch has two strategic aspects. The first, he says, is the ability to monitor activities in hostile states without violating international treaties. The second involves Israel's launch capabilities."

Now comes the answer to the question: "How long O Lord, dost Thou not avenge our blood
 (Rev 6:10)
Now too comes the answer to the question raised in Rev. 13:4,
"Who is able to make war with the beast?"

JESUS CHRIST, King of kings, and Lord of lords is MORE than able to make war with him....
"And the beast was taken, and with him the False Prophet...These both were cast alive into a Lake of Fire"
Rev. 19:20
"I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed and given to the burning flame".
Daniel 7:11 (please see Numbers 16:29-33 and Leviticus 10:1.2)

Finally, the two worst perpetrators of tyranny in all of the history of mankind will be put down forever. Their mad ambitions, distorted by a frenzy for power, will repay them the justice they so deserve. They drastically miscalculated the primacy of God.

The folly of fighting against God will be evident for all to see--whether on the field of Megiddo, or in the playground of our mind. No one can oppose God and win.


The last act of the beast, that catapulted him into the Lake of Fire, was the detonation of the button (to set off global conflagration).
"And the 7th Angel poured out his vial into the air: And there came a great
Voice out of the Temple of Heaven from the Throne, saying,
‘IT IS DONE’. Rev.16:17-21
(God has let the sin of man go as far as it can go).

Now the 7th Vial actually contains 7 distinct judgements within itself .... the results of the detonation:
1. an unprecedented earthquake of apocalyptic proportions
2. the city of Jerusalem divides into 3 parts
4. "Great" Babylon (
The entire country ) is totally destroyed forever
5. EVERY island is fled away
6. the mountains are not found
7. 100 pound-hailstones (meteorites, comets, asteroids ? ) fall upon men ... exceedingly great

The first 6 ramifications happen on earth from the cataclysmic earthquake similar to the earthquake of Genesis 10:25 when "the earth divided". The final blow occurs in the heavens where the powers thereof are shaken ( the collapse of radiation belts, gravitational pulls, ozone layers: a phenomenon described by scientists as "Synergism"-- simultaneous actions surpassing the sum of their individual effects.)
"Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven"
Hebrews 12:26

This Galactic Trauma sets loose a Great deadly meteorite shower, called, "A Hail of Stones". Our Lord told us in Luke 19:40 that if He were not honored, "the stones would immediately cry out."

Nuclear-strikes at asteroids for destruction of cities     April 12-2001
"In works of science fiction about asteroid and comet strikes, the traditional method of dealing with the problem is to launch nuclear-tipped ICBMs at the incoming menace a few hours before impact, so that the protagonists can save the Earth in the nick of time, as it were. Unfortunately, this is a flawed strategy. It is easy to deflect the dangerous object when it is moving slowly and is far away. It is nearly impossible when the object is fast and close. And a nuclear warhead may do more harm than good. Breaking up the rock into a several smaller rocks, all of which strike the surface, is like MIRVing a nuclear warhead and would probably do more net damage than if the large object had remained in one piece."

The Barringer Meteor 

Meteors and Armageddon
"Asteroids, remnants of the early solar system that failed to coalesce into planets 4,6 billion years ago, were discovered in 1801 by Italian astronomer Giuseppe Piazzi. Nearly all originate from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, where over a million stone, iron or nickel giants hang in orbit awaiting the day when a random collision or a shift in Jupiter's gravitational field sets one on a deadly trajectory."

"As a result, the number of asteroids that have been identified and reliably charted now stands at about 26,000, up from 10,000 in early 1999. "And it took 198 years to get the first 10,000. That's how dramatically things are moving," said Brian Marsden, director of the Minor Planet Centre of the International Astronomical Union, the international repository of data on asteroids, comets and meteors.
Scientists have identified and charted about 1,413 near-Earth asteroids, so called because their trajectories have the potential to intersect with Earth's orbit. Five hundred of those are 1km in diameter or larger."


Microsatellites sent to Asteroid belt

Thirty or more microsatellites would be released by a mother spacecraft on arrival at the asteroid belt, where billions of space rocks orbit the Sun.
Like bees from a hive, the satellites, weighing as little as 20 kilograms, would fly past different asteroids.

The Threat of Near-Earth Objects (NEO's)


"And there fell upon men a Great Hail out of Heaven,
every stone about the weight of a talent (100+ pounds)
and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the Hail;
for the plague thereof was exceeding great."
Rev. 16:21

Now if anyone is skeptical as to a meteorite-shower of this magnitude, then examine the article from the Los Angeles Times (6-11-87) entitled:

"Nemesis: The Death Star"...............
"A team of astrophysicists from Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory [ California ] are studying the following theory: The Nemesis Theory is based on the idea that if another (
companion) Star (of the Sun) passed close to the Sun, its gravitational field would dislodge comets and possibly asteroids from their normal positions in the Solar System, and would probably collide with earth." The article goes on to say that past impacts were 6 Billion times greater than the Hiroshima Bomb. " The collision would have sent clouds of debris, including iridium, into the upper atmosphere, obscuring the Sun (moon and stars as well ) and plunging Earth into prolonged darkness."
Dan. 12:12)         [ editor's parenthesis ]

Our Lord Himself tells us in Matthew 24:29,
"Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened,
And the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven,
And the powers of the Heavens shall be shaken." (
see Zechariah 14: 6,7 )

Our Lord interrupts this universal-convulsion, thus saving all mankind.
Jesus Christ is literally The Savior of the World !!
"And except those days be shortened, there should no flesh be saved."
But for the Elect’s sake those days shall be shortened."
Matthew 24:22

Finally Daniel 2: 34, 35 will have come to pass:
"Thou sawest till that a STONE was cut out without hands,
which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay,
and break them to pieces ... together, and became like the chaff of the summer
And the wind carried them away [ gone with the wind ]
that no place was found for them:
"And the STONE (JESUS) that smote the image
became a great mountain ( the 1,000 year reign of Jesus Christ. 
Theocracy of Jesus Christ   Revelation 20:4 )
and filled the whole earth."

One can almost hear Handel’s "Alleluia Chorus", as the voice of many people say,
"Alleluia! Salvation and Glory, and Honor and Power unto the Lord Our God"...
"Alleluia! For the Lord God All powerful reigneth." 
Revelation 19: 1-- 6.

"And there was given Him (Jesus) Dominion and Glory, and a Kingdom,
that ALL people, nations and languages, should serve Him." Daniel  7:13,14

It took 6,000 years for the rise and fall of civilizations before we could truly
acknowledge that Jesus Christ ALONE is the true Prince of Peace, Sar Shalom!!

"I am the Bright and Morning Star"..........................................
"Surely I am coming"...................................................................
"Behold, I come quickly"..............................................................
"Surely, I come quickly".

"Even so, come Lord Jesus"........................Our ONLY HOPE!

Apocalypse 22

Joy to the world, the Lord IS come !!
Let earth receive her King !


One wonders if the coalition against asteroids is a front for the deterrence of the return of Messiah.
After all, the interceptor was called "Messiah" in the movie.

( they laughed in the '50's, but they're not laughing now )

It is interesting to note that on April 28, 2003 the Administration said that there would be no more "victories" or heroes in wars. There would just be an acknowledgement that a battle had been
fought well. But it would only be a battle in a long continuing saga of war until the end.

How unlike Our Lord's incomparable VICTORY at Armageddon. He will be our Lord of Lords, Our King of Kings and our God above all gods. The foe will be completely vanquished, and true peace will reign. No more war. No more battles.
"They shall learn war no more." Isaiah

Alleluia !
