Pamphlet 1909 Rev. kc 50-2
then is the PICTURE of the end of all flesh at the sound of the 7th Trump:
Yep, their flesh is gone!
So we have learned from the apostle Paul that ALL flesh will be changed when Christ returns, and it is at that point to which we have arrived in Rev. 19.
Here then is the PICTURE of the end of all flesh at the sound of the 7th Trump:
The circling buzzards and birds are going to have a great feast at this event!Rev. 19:17
And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
The original texts read "to the great supper of God". The word "supper" used is here is the Greek word "deipnon" which comes from "dapane", dap-an'-ay, Greek #1160; from dapto (to devour); expense (as consuming) :- cost.
Again, don't be confused and bring in subjects that are not being discussed. This verse is not talking about the marriage supper of the Lamb which takes place later. Jesus Christ is returning and the flesh age is over and all mankind will be changed into their spiritual bodies.
Here is the verse that documents that the word "all" in 1 Cor. 15:52 means "everyone" both small and great and not just Christians. That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
So do you get the PICTURE that there will be a lot of carcasses lying around for the birds to feast on and clean up? Pretty graphic isn't it?
We see here the 10 kings and the armies which Satan has gathered together in Jerusalem to make war with the Lamb. Let's switch to the Book of Zechariah and SEE a PICTURE of their fate at the 7th Trump. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
The 14th chapter of the Book of Zechariah gives us this same account of Christ's return when His feet touch down upon the Mount of Olives. Remember we just read in Rev. 19:18 that "ALL FLESH" is going to be consume away at His return and that includes the earthly kings and their armies which Satan has gathered at Jerusalem to make war against the Lamb.
Yep, their flesh is gone too! (Perhaps this was a bit "over dramatized" by the translators in 1611 but we've got the PICTURE.)Zech. 14:12
And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
Again, be careful not switch subjects here, but to rightly divide the Word.We are reading about the events surrounding the return of Jesus Christ, and not of the judgment after the Millennium and "the" lake of fire which causes the second death. For the sake of clarity in understanding, reading "a" lake of fire as it is translated here instead of "the" lake of fire will help. Why? Because this verse is simply saying that the "one world political system", i.e. the political beast, and the false prophet, which is Satan's role as the spurious messiah, will also be consumed away for ever and ever, GONE! This is Babylon the Great being "utterly burned with fire" as we read in Rev. 18:8!Rev. 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Now let's think for a moment.We know that Satan will be loosed for a short time after the Millennium to be used as a final test for those who go through the Millennium. But he will NOT be given a one political system again (for Christ is taking charge as King of kings forever when He returns), nor will he be afforded the role as false Messiah again, i.e. the false prophet.
Here's verse 21 to complete the 19th chapter:
This verse concludes the narrative contained in the three verses 19, 20 and 21 which all begin with "And". John is simply telling us (vs. 19) that he saw the beast and the armies gathered together to make war, (20) and Babylon the Great was "utterly burned with fire" as we read in 18:8, and (21) everyone else was changed from flesh bodies to spiritual bodies.Rev. 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
Again, I hope you can see that there is nothing new here that we haven't read of before! We are reading the final chapters of the Word of God. We should know all of this before we get to this point. Revelation is simply the uncovering, a final Pictorial Look at the events consummating the end of this age, i.e. it is mostly summary material.
In our next chapter we will go into and even pass through the Millennium to that final judgment when all that is evil and wicked is consumed away in the lake of fire and the 3rd Heaven and 3rd Earth age, which will exist for all eternity, is finally come!
How truly exciting is the Revelation from our Father to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear!
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
