The best description of the nuclear end that awaits this world is found in the book of Revelation. In my previous post we looked at nuclear warfare, and in the last post we saw when this most terrible thing will happen and found out it can only happen after 144 000 Jews has accepted Jesus Christ and is sealed with the Holy Spirit according to Rev.7:2.
There we saw 4 Angel were instructed to hold back the 3rd world nuclear winds of war that can hurt the earth, sea, and trees until the Jews has received the gospel. But over in Revelation 9 we find out that John also by vision saw the hour, day, month and year when those 4 Angels would be loosened. This will happen during the time of the tribulation when the rapture had already taken place, while God is dealing with the Jews. This sixth trumpet is loosened during their time.
As the 4 Angels are loosened he heard that 200 million horsemen will ride to war and at that time a third of all mankind will lose their lives. There are 7 billion people in the world and a third of that is more than 2 billion. A Massive amount of people. " REVELATION 9:15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. 16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them."
This is the most saddest part of the Scripture. Looking at this verse, the first thing we may have a problem with is the horsemen. 200 million is a very big number. And these horsemen looks extremely strange.
" REVELATION 9:17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: ...."
These horsemen wears breastplates of fire and brimstone? They are certainly not made of flesh. And John doesn’t call them human. He said he saw the horses and them that sat on them. “Them” there could be anything, human or other kind of life forms. What John thereafter describes of these horsemen tells us they are not human as they wore breast plates of fire, jacinth-stones described as a dark red to black color, and brimstone.
The dictionary tells us brimstone is made up of two words burn+stone, burning stone. No human being will dress in fire and brimstone, or burning stone. But if the horsemen are not made of flesh, then burning material won’t do much to them. Are there such beings?
Under the 5th trumpet when it opened we saw hell opened up and then the most hideous demonic creatures came forth under a leader called Abaddon, better known as Lucifer. These horsemen under the sixth trumpet are of the same demonic kind and John heard their number. 200 million of them will lead mankind to the final slaughter. All the inspiration of evil [demons] will make sure Armageddon takes place. And they will bring all the weapons of mankind. 200 million weaponry will be used in the last war.
Christians believe in demons, atheists and many others does not, but every one who dies will know they are real. So our ignorance of these things usually end when we cross over into that spiritual realm where these things dwell. Until then we can say what ever we want, laugh as much as we want, but that day that we cross alone, all ignorance ends. It is then we will meet with the supernatural. These strange horsemen can withstand natural fires that mankind won’t be able to withstand. So what we witness here are spiritual riders, riding natural created things, [explosives] that will actually kill a 3rd of all mankind on impact. No war has ever killed a billion people, but when these riders go forth, more than 2 billion will lose their lives.
Demons usually do not kill directly. They are spirit beings that can only work on spiritual things like for instance the human soul. In there they can torment you with all sorts of negative thoughts, tell you how useless you are in your very own mind causing depressions, or other kinds of psychological problems. They use people either to harm themselves or others, so they may not find Christ and the deliverance of Christ.
You can learn more about demonology from a preacher who was led by the Angel of the Lord same as Moses was. http://www.themessage.com/sermonsdownload When it comes to the flesh, demons can only inspire mankind to do harm to fellow humans or may use some damaged cell to cause a disease, or use man and the science of mankind to bring death and misery. While the horsemen may never have been seen by us, their horses are well known to us. So for the sake of understanding what is going on here let, us look at the horses. “REVELATION 9:17b”…and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone."
In the ancient days it was the horsemen that did the killing with a sword or some bow and arrows, but did you notice the horses does the killing here? So forget about the horsemen and concentrate on the horses as they are the ones that are dangerous here. Science has given mankind far better horses than old ones of flesh. These horses never tire, they are super fast, they feed on fossil fuels, and they are meant to be destroyed at the end of their missions. Once they reach the destination, they become kamikaze horses, ready to explode with their payload. Some of these intercontinental ballistic horses can travel around the globe in 25 minutes, so there no place safe to hide from them. When a single one of them arrive, it is ready to take on and wipe out a whole city on their own.
Now when John wrote the book of Revelation in 95 to 96 AD he had never seen a missile. The word was not in use so we can’t expect him to use such language. He was only shown the future and told to write what he saw in his own language. So when he did it, he could only write in accordance to the available vocabulary. God allowed that so He could hide these mysteries till a time when people will understand it. A missile to John could best be described as a type of war horse with a mighty roar like a lion.
When a missile horse like Poseidon, Trident, Minuteman or Peacekeeper delivers its payload it does it with a lion’s roar! Boom! Depending on the size of the warhead [lions head] the roar of some nuclear warheads will be heard 50 miles away. That is a might roar. The word explode was also not in use in John’s time so describing the sound the warhead makes at the point of detonation, is indeed like the roar of a lion. When nuclear warheads explode they will announce their supremacy louder than lions. Every other little handgun, machine gun, or smaller explosive will have to hush in the presence of the nuclear bomb as it is indeed the lion amongst the weapons of mankind. And it will announce the judgment roar of the lion of the tribe of Judah on unrighteousness.
Rev. 9 17b “…and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone." Nuclear weapons comes with these three effects when it detonates. Fire, smoke, and brimstone blast wave effects. These are indeed the effects of the nuclear missile horses that can and will kill a third of the human population if they are released. These horses are ready to take their final rides to bring destruction. And what is described here in Rev.9 they can certainly do. Question is, is God’s people ready to get out of their way? A very great tragedy is fast approaching, and there is just one way out of this and that is upwards. Only purity of character will rapture the bride upwards. We must make ourselves ready by opening up to God so He can come do a work in us. We need a cleansing message that can bring purity of character by telling us uncompromisingly what we do wrong. Such a message is found at the link I have given somewhere above.
