IT is Almost Finished
The battle of Armageddon is discussed in Revelation 16, 19 and 20. Let us examine what is said. And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of wrath of God upon the earth (16:1) . And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up...(16:12). And I saw three unclean spirits coming out of the mouth of the Dragon, and out of the mouth of the Beast, and out of the mouth of the False Prophet (v13). For they are spirits of devils, working miracles , which go forth unto the kings of the whole world, to gather them to gather them to the battle of that great day of God almighty (v14). The kings were gathered together at Armageddon and the seventh vial was poured out and a voice came out of the temple saying IT IS DONE . And there was a great earthquake greater than any since men were on the earth. And every Island fled away. This is with out any doubt, the last battle mentioned in scripture.
Chapter 19 verse 20 And the Beast was taken, and with him the False Prophet that wrought miracles before him ...... were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. The fact that the beast and False prophet are seen in this vision would be proof that these two battles are the same.
Chapter 20 describes the dragon or Satan being bound in the bottomless pit for a 1000 years. The millennial reign of Christ begins at this same time. After the 1000 years are fulfilled Satan is loosed for a little season to gather the kings of the earth. This also is describing the battle of Armageddon. And He (Satan) is cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the Beast and False are... This wound imply that the Beast and False prophet come to their end some length of time before Satan comes to his end. I do not believe that it will be a very long time because it was only a little season that Satan was given to gather the kings together and the beast and False Prophet was present in the Euphrates at the beginning of the "Little Season"
Now for the most important question. When will or when did all of these things happen? If we are watching the kings of the earth gathering themselves together for this great battle. If the events that we are watching on the television are fulfillment of these prophesies, All of prophesy must have already been fulfilled with the exception of those judgments that are finalized on that last day. . This would mean that Satan was released a little season past. This would mean that Satan was released and he would have been bound a 1000 years before that. This would mean that Satan was bound approx 1119 years ago. Satan would have been bound about the same time as the world began emerging out of the Dark Ages. The millennial reign of Christ began at this same time. The seven vial judgments would have begun being poured out shortly after this.
Rev 16:1 & 2 ...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 grievous sore upon the men ... I see this vial judgment being fulfilled when over half of the population of Europe and Asia died from the Black plague, in the middle of the 14th century.
We can apply this system of analogy backwards and forwards through scripture and all of the facts seem to fit together quit nicely.
