Revelation shows the destruction of the world’s military

“Orthodox” 16th Century Representation of the “Apocalypse”


A reader that I know  sent me the following in an email:

Some day you may want to write about GOD’s destruction of the World’s Military in the Book of Revelation.
Most view Revelation from the perspective of the civil population, when in fact its a “rescue mission” that
primarily destroys man’s military operations.
Meteors first…these halt ground troop, supply movements, destroy satellites, air force, navy, army equipment.
(stars fall, every mountain, island moved, all seek shelter, Rev 6:13-16)
Hail kills troops out in the open, lightning caused fires…massive storms strike.
Storms primarily strike Air Force and Navy. Military equipment destroyed by hail, lightning, fires,
(matches Exodus 9:24-25, Rev 8:7, 16:2)
Asteroid strikes earththird of ships (nuclear submarines, Navy ships) destroyed.  (Rev 8:8-9, 16:3).
Sea water desalinization equipment contaminated via “red algae”.
Comet strikes earthfresh water supplies for troops contaminated, kills many.  (Rev 8:11, 16:4)
Solar flares…Remaining Military satellites destroyed, radio communication equipment, GPS rendered useless
due to electromagnetic interference. (Rev 8:12, 16:8)
Volcanoes, earthquakes…Headquarters of the Beast struck with darkness. Halts air force, ground equipment,
Satellite communications.
Christ returns, Armageddon…destroys world’s military directly.
(Rev 16:14, 21, 19:19, Zechariah 14 entire chapter).

So, instead of writing much myself, I thought his quotes were a good foundation, to which I would add a few scriptural quotes:

17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,  18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.”   19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.  (Revelation 19:17-21, NKJV)

7 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. 9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. (Revelation 20:7-10)

2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”   (Revelation 21:2-5)

The world as we know it will be changed.  And changed for the better.
