What_is_Armageddon        Various phenomena in nature, as well as within nations, now prepare interacting backdrops for Armageddon. These phenomena include: Economic collapses, political upheavals (as now in Turkey, Syria, etc.) killer storms, tornadoes, earthquakes, animal extinctions, disease pandemics, etc.

Revelation Chapter 6 gives extended views of increasingly dire disasters symbolized by the five horses of the Apocalypse.  Their relationship to current events provide harbingers of more brutal times to come.

The first horse rider is a human being totally consumed by evil, called the anti-Christ, 666 and other hidden indicators of satanism. Most Bible scholars agree he will arise in the Middle East. Dake’s Reference Bible limits his entrance to four nations in the former Greek empire of Alexander the Great: Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey.  In his book ‘Revelation Expounded,’ Dake specifies that nation as Syria.

The anti-Christ will make continuing wars––hot, cold, economic, etc.––between nations to solidify his hold on the old Roman and Grecian empires, covering parts of the Middle East, Europe and Northern Africa.

The rider on the second horse in verses 6: 3-4, called War, is a powerful demonic spirit influencing men to keep wars and rebellions moving throughout the earth.  Obviously, he is hard at work on that agenda now.

The rider on the third horse in 6: 5-6, known as Famine, again already works in Third World countries.  The Bible 4horsemenlidentifies the rider on the fourth horse (in 6: 7 – 8) as Death. He will have the power to kill with epidemics and other disasters affecting millions of people.  Verse 8 says the rider following Death is Hell.

If Global Warming is not abated, health workers fear millions of sick people will overwhelm health agencies.  This rider, Death, will kill in every way possible, including wild animals––i.e. unleashed tigers, giant snakes, wild boars, chimpanzees, alligators, killer bees, wolves, etc. unleashed on human populations.

And the fifth rider, following closely after Death, is Hell. Students of Bible prophecies know that evil’s ultimate goal is to take as many billions of people to Hell through the work these evil spirit riders as possible.

The job of Christians is to reach as many people around the world as possible with the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Believers working to attain that goal are now in constant battle with those coming evil forces.

Those professing to be in Christ who are not battling spiritual forces should check the level of their faith:  “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution (2 Timothy 3: 12).”  As wholesale Christian t-shirts exclaims The LORD’s command:  “And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16: 15.)”  On with the work!
