Wars of the Last Days and the Vials of the Wrath of God
(Edition 1.0 20130130-20130130)
The Wars of the Last Days will force the intervention of Messiah to save those who eagerly await him. At the Return of the Messiah the world will be brought into subjection to Jesus Christ under the Vials of the Wrath of God. This is how it will occur.
Wars of the Last Days and the Vials of the Wrath of God
In the Last Days the world is almost brought to total destruction by Satan and the false religious system that he had set up through the Babylonian Sun cults and the Mystery Religion which had penetrated all the world’s religions and taken them over.
The real aim was to take over the world and eliminate all human freedom and establish a system in complete control of the world empires and which was to form the last phase of the Babylonian religious system as described by the prophet Daniel in the Book of Daniel chapter 2. The Book of Daniel gives a complete time frame and sequence of activities up until the last days and the destruction of the World Empires. In the understanding of the books of the Bible and their prophetic implications lies the guidance for the Saints of the Most High and their organisational structure right up until the coming of the Messiah.
The sequence of activity is covered in the papers dealing with the various aspects.
The timing of the wars of the Last Days begins with the end of the “Seven times” from the Battle of Carchemish in 605 BCE when Nebuchadnezzar defeated the Egyptians and replaced the Assyrians as the key world empire. The eighty-year period from Nebuchadnezzar to the invasion of Egypt by Cambyses in 525 BCE and the 2520 years to the end of the Babylonian system in the last days is explained in the papers the Fall of Egypt (No. 036) and also the Fall of Egypt Part II – The Wars of the End (No. 036_2)).
The last eighty-year period went from 1916 to 1996/7. The 2520 years from Cambyses’ invasion of Egypt to the end of the Times of the Nations or Gentiles ended in 1996/7 and from the beginning of the Sacred year 1997 the last Thirty years of the Empire of the Beast called the New World Order (NWO) began. This NWO was given power by Satan to control the world and to establish this final Empire represented by the Ten Toes of Iron and Miry Clay which was the last phase of the Empires portrayed in Daniel chapter 2 and which empire would be destroyed by Christ at his return represented by the stone uncut by human hands that came from the heavens and struck the idol of the Babylonian system on the toes and caused it to fall and be smashed. So over the last Thirty years between 1997 and 2027 the Empire of the Beast is given the entire world to take over and subjugate and Satan attempts to bring the earth to destruction using this system. This is the final war of the end of Satan’s rule we know as World War III. See the paper World War III: Part I The Empire of the Beast (No. 299A).
The religious whore that was the Babylonian system and formed the head of the empire of the feet of iron and miry clay, which was the empire that preceded this last phase, attempts to harness this last phase also but the Beast turns on the Whore and destroys it and establishes the last religious system before the Messiah comes. This is explained in the paper: WWIII Part II: The Whore and the Beast (No. 299B).
These attempts to deal with the systems and deceive the planet are explained in the paper 2012 and the Antichrist (No. 299D). The great apostasy and the biblical figure of the Man of Sin are explained in the paper The Man of Sin and the Apostasy (No. 299E).
This figure is what has been understood and described as the Antichrist as explained in the paper Antichrist in Early Church Theology and the Last Days (No. 299F).
The period of the Last Days in occupation and contest over the city of Jerusalem and the control of Israel is explained in the prophecy in Daniel concerning the 2300 evenings and mornings which commenced from the Invasion of the Medes and Persians which was commenced by the He Goat of Greece, Alexander, that invaded Persia and defeated the Persians at the first battle of the Granicus River in 334 BCE and finally at Arbela in 331 BCE after which Alexander occupied Babylon, and the empire of Bronze was in occupation of the Babylonian system. The 2300 years of the prophecy began to be completed in 1967 when Israel defeated the combined Arab attacks and occupied all of Jerusalem. This commenced the last 60 years dealing with the religious system and the Temple of God. This time sequence is also covered in the paper Outline Timetable of the Age (No. 272). The period of 1967 began what was known as the Heavenly Signs of Revelation. This matter is explained in the work The Heavenly Signs of the Sixth Seal in Context (No. 38B). In 280 BCE Seleucus the last of Alexander’s captains died and the 2300 evenings and mornings from this date end in the year 2021. The Sabbath Year in 2019 ends in March 2020 and the First year of the final cycle is 2020-2021. This year marks the final phase of the Messianic subjugation of the nations. We will outline this phase in detail and build upon the final year we see occurring under Messiah as Captain of the Army of the Lord detailed in the paper The Fall of Jericho (No. 142).
In 1987 the last forty years began with the Measuring of the Temple. See the paper Measuring the Temple (No. 137).
In that sequence the Temple, which is made up of individual humans of the saints, was sifted to determine individual eligibility for the Kingdom of God and scattered so that the errors in its doctrine could be corrected and the message of the Last Days promulgated. It was scattered from the sacred year beginning in 1994 after a seven year period and continually dealt with from that time onwards.
From 1994 the warning of the coming of the Messiah and the Wars of the End began to be promulgated as prophesied by Jeremiah in Jeremiah chapter 4 (esp. Jer. 4:15). See the paper Warning of the Last Days (No. 044). The Laws of God began to be again correctly promulgated from the Sabbath year of 1998 and will continue to be so on to the Witnesses who will restore the nexus of the law over their period of prophecy. That period begins after the Wars of the Fifth and Sixth Trumpets. This Warning of the Last Days was to occur over three Sabbath years and two cycles plus a Sabbath. The Laws of God will then be enforced by the Witnesses over the final Warning and then Messiah will enforce total compliance at the end of their witness (see the work The Law of God (L1)).
God does nothing except He warns the people first through His servants the prophets. In this last phase He appoints the voice of the Church of the Last Days stationed in Dan/Ephraim and the Nations of the Last Days before the final actions in the overcoming of the church as we are told in Daniel chapter 12.
In the year 2001 what is now understood as World War Three (WWIII) commenced with the invasion of Afghanistan and then Iraq by the Western powers under leadership of the US. This conflict will last until 2025 on through the return of the Messiah when the nations are brought down to Megiddo to have their armies destroyed by Messiah and the Host. When Messiah is sent by God to deal with the world and save the elect he will not come in peace. Nor will he appear as the weakling these Babylonian Sun cults and Trinitarians portray him to be. The world and its systems will have pushed themselves to the verge of destruction and they will not be allowed to continue with their ways and their religious systems. They will obey God or die.
The Woes of Revelation referred to in the papers The Seven Seals (No. 140) following on to The Seven Trumpets (No. 141) were organised to continue on from the Islamic conflicts commenced from those initial conflicts from 2001.
By 2012 the fundamentalists were consolidating the Islamic systems under their power forcing the intervention of the NATO systems into North Africa and the Middle East. The NATO and EU systems were to force these systems to come under the World Financial system of the NWO under its planned ten economic regions which were to become unelected bureaucracies of the system of the Ten Toes of Daniel. This is the final phase of the NWO.
The Islamic systems also strike back at the Western powers. This will be enabled by the assistance of the Western and Soviet powers from the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and the Iraq/Iran War in the Middle East.
From 2013 under the escalating conflicts the Woes of Revelation begin with the War of the Fifth Trumpet and the War of the Sixth Trumpet following on. The sequence is a bio-chemical conflict followed by all out nuclear war in which a third of humanity dies in the war. There are over 200 million people involved in this conflict.
The biochemical system began to be developed from WWI with its mustard gas and other chemical weapons. It was developed in earnest under the Nazis in WWII and among the Soviet and Western scientists. Millions were destroyed over this period.
In the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and the Iraq/Iran war the US assisted Saddam Hussein and Iraq to develop chemical weapons which he used against the Kurds.
The Russians assisted the Iranians and the Syrians to develop bio-chemical weapons also and these have been developed and distributed to the Iranian and Syrian puppets through Hezbollah and Hamas and their cronies.
Smallpox was brought under control and eradicated among the nations over the last half of the twentieth century. However, Russia and the US refused to destroy their stocks of the virus and have weaponised smallpox into a resistant strain. They have both placed it in weapons for use in bio-chemical warfare. This has then been distributed to Iran and Syria for the next phase of the wars. It will be and is being spread throughout the fundamentalist Muslims in the UK/EU and the US and Australia and New Zealand for use in their cities when given the orders. Also the North Koreans are working with Iran and the Russians to produce these agents and nuclear weapons for use against the West. They both have the capacity to deliver them via ICBMs but ship-born installation will be more effective and deadlier.
Our intelligence systems are quite sure that microbial agents have been engineered by the Radical Islamist in Iran working with the Russians to bring the West to its knees.
These number eight microbial agents and are extremely deadly. We also know for a fact that Sarin was a chemical agent weaponised in Syria and has been mixed over the revolution there and they intend to use it. Sarin is another of the agents in use by the fundamentalist Muslims acting in cooperation with Iran. Sarin was to be used as a test run in Japan some years ago but the plan was foiled. It will be more generalised when it is used in the West, in EU and the US etc. A plant (Shahid Bahonar Microbial Plant) reportedly exists in Marzanabad manned by Russian and Iranian scientists working on microbial agents for use in explosive devices and rockets. Iran now has a significant number of agents being worked on (perhaps up to 18) with four completed at that plant and four others completed at other plants. How accurate this information is we do not know. However, it appears there are eight completed operational agents ready to be delivered on the West. The US has vastly more agents with which to target them in return.
The aim is to use insects as the vectors for these agents and released in target social systems of their enemies. These systems cannot be completely controlled and will spread internationally. The plague is one of the agents and it is developed to be spread in its developed form by insects.
The eight agents to date are resistant smallpox, weaponised cholera, anthrax, encephalitis (the blueprint of this virus, Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis, was provided by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in an agreement a few years ago with the Islamic regime), yellow grain (developed with the help of North Korea), SARS, Ebola, and plague as well as the chemical weapons including Sarin.
The outbreak of plague in the Middle Ages killed one-third of Europe’s population, and it resurfaced in the 19th century in Asia, killing millions in China and India. The current variants were both Bubonic and Pneumonic plague and the US has developed both. The so-called Spanish flu of 1918 was released from a Kansas military installation in 1917/18. It killed more people round the world than died on the front. They have more deadly variants now. The younger were more vulnerable and it was the healthy people of child producing ages that died in 1918 because of the moisture produced in their lungs. The Japanese released pathogens into the Chinese during WWII killing hundreds of thousands.
A useful work in regard to Iran’s developments is covered in the work “A Time to Betray” written under the pseudonym Reza Khalili by a former US spy working in the Revolutionary Guards.
The release of these agents into all countries will be achieved through Islamist Radicals from Iran and the Islamist agents in the Middle East and North Africa. The US and EU will use their own systems of agents to do the same.
The experts on both sides are aware of the agents and how they can be used effectively and some of the national groups think they may be able to avoid detection and retaliation in the short term or long enough to inflict major damage on the enemy sufficient to gain a long term advantage. All of these weapons are highly dangerous but smallpox is the most dangerous because of its capacity to adapt to the human immune system. Weaponised cholera, although less deadly that other agents, is more deadly than the usual strains of cholera. No matter what they decide, the systems are enough to damage and destroy the population after a period of transmission and damage which will be some five months.
Revelation 9:5 they were allowed to torture them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torture was like the torture of a scorpion, when it stings a man.
Revelation 9:10 they have tails like scorpions, and stings, and their power of hurting men for five months lies in their tails.
This shows that the armour and mobile artillery will be used to deliver much of the bio-chemical agents locally as well as the air systems internationally.
The intercontinental wars will follow. By 2014 all fighter elements of the King of the North and NATO systems will have fighter jet equipped laser turrets for air to air and air to ground operations. China had already developed First Wave fighter jets for first strike nuclear activity in their old Mig 21B jets by 1976. They developed valve activity to outlast the computers that will be pulsed out in the nuclear exchanges and the electromagnetic explosions. All computer controlled operations will be rendered inoperable in both short and long term operations. The earth will be severely harmed.
Cyborgs are being developed now for deployment in the wars. Robot and drone systems are already operational with more to come. They are described in Joel chapter 2.
They will kill at least a third of the population in the long term and with the war of the Sixth Trumpet we will see well over half the world’s population killed in these two wars, one following the other.
Intelligence sources and open media commentaries both confirm that Iran and Syria have large numbers of aircraft delivery systems and various bombs, ballistic missiles, artillery, mortars and rockets of varying capacities with which they are arming and intend to deliver against Israel and the West.
The intended window of opportunity is Purim in Adar 2013 and the Islamist agents have already announced in Iran and Egypt that they hope to annihilate Israel in 2013. That will not happen and Iran will suffer pre-emptive strikes from Israel as per the Book of Esther (see the paper Commentary on Esther (No. 063)). The strikes in Europe will also have been planned and placed in the capital cities of Europe from that time.
Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and other terrorist proxies of the regime are already armed with microbial weapons. The media reported in 2012 that chemical and microbial weapons have been transferred to Iran’s proxies in the region.
The nuclear tests of North Korea are simply part of that sequence of nuclear armament in cooperation with Iran and the Islamist forces. The uncertainty of the ICBM deliveries will make them decide on ship-born deliveries into the Western cities and ports. The bio-chemical weapons can thus be used prior to and then followed up with a nuclear delivery in multiple locations. Russian satchel nukes will also be used and a hundred or so were “lost” almost two decades ago. There seems little doubt they were made to “disappear” to avoid the detection of the nuclear agencies.
The West has two camps the intelligence and the NWO communities which are working towards the destruction of the Islamist camps and the political and social camps who are working under the delusion that if they shut their eyes it will all go away.
Of course it does not go away and the War of the Fifth Trumpet follows on to the War of the Sixth trumpet and the destruction of over half the earth. The combined wars are taken up as the final wars of the King of the North in Daniel chapter 11:40ff.
The NATO system wins this conflict and returns to consolidate the Middle East and places its headquarters from Jerusalem to Gaza which becomes the Headquarters of the Beast for 42 months. The Palestinians are relocated in Jordan over this period which retains its autonomy.
This 42 month period is matched by the period of the Two Witnesses mentioned in Revelation 11. They take up their places for 1260 days which matches the 42 months of the Occupation of the Beast. This sequence is explained in the paper The Witnesses including the Two Witnesses (No. 135).
Powers of the Witnesses
The powers of the Witnesses and what they address among the nations that angers the nations so much is a story in its own right.
Revelation 11:  Then I was given a measuring rod like a staff, and I was told: "Rise and measure the temple of God and the altar and those who worship there,  but do not measure the court outside the temple; leave that out, for it is given over to the nations, and they will trample over the holy city for forty-two months.  And I will grant my two witnesses power to prophesy for one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth."  These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands which stand before the Lord of the earth.  And if any one would harm them, fire pours out from their mouth and consumes their foes; if any one would harm them, thus he is doomed to be killed.
So we see that over the 42 months in which the nations trample over the Holy City in their occupation of the area from the sea up to Jerusalem after they have returned from the wars of the Fifth and Sixth Trumpet they are confronted by the Witnesses. The Witnesses are under divine protection and anyone who tries to kill them over the 1260 days of their prophecy will in a similar way be killed.
Their powers are key and used to deal with the false religions and the improper and unbiblical government of the world. From verse 6 we see that they are able to deny rain in due season to the world and are able to turn the waters into blood and to smite the earth with every plague whenever they consider it necessary.
 They have power to shut the sky, that no rain may fall during the days of their prophesying, and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood, and to smite the earth with every plague, as often as they desire.
These powers are linked to the texts in Isaiah 66:23 and Zechariah 14:16-19. In other words their witness is tied to the Sacred Calendar and to Biblical Law.
The world will be told to keep the Sabbath and New Moons and to keep the Feasts according to the Bible and the Temple system. The first to be dealt with will be the Jews and Arabs in Jerusalem. They will be told to get rid of the Babylonian based Hillel system of 358 CE and afterwards with its Babylonian intercalations and if they do not they will be dealt with in power. The Trinitarian Christians and Hadithic Muslims will be told to do the same or they will get no rain in due season and they will suffer the plagues of Egypt and their water will be turned to blood. So also will the entire Asian and Indian religious systems. The commencing of the waters into blood with the trumpets will be continued under the Witnesses. The US religious frauds of the Sun and Mystery cults and all those of the Churches of God using the Hillel Calendar will be punished and the ministers teaching these lies, including those in the Churches of God, will be punished. It is for this reason and the fact that the Witnesses do not recognize the false systems set up under Judaism and the Sardis and Laodicean systems of the Churches of God, as well as the false religions of the Sun and Mystery cults, that the whole world rejoices when they are finally killed by the Beast as we see from verse 7.
 And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends from the bottomless pit will make war upon them and conquer them and kill them,  and their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which is allegorically called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was crucified.
Over this period the whole world will celebrate their deaths in the exchange of gifts under the false religious system set up by the servants of Satan and the Antichrist. Then after three and a half days they are resurrected at the return of the Messiah.
 For three days and a half men from the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations gaze at their dead bodies and refuse to let them be placed in a tomb,  and those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and make merry and exchange presents, because these two prophets had been a torment to those who dwell on the earth.  But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood up on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them.  Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up hither!" And in the sight of their foes they went up to heaven in a cloud.  And at that hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell; seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.  The second woe has passed; behold, the third woe is soon to come.
It is at this time that the Third Woe is then inflicted on the earth by God through Christ and the loyal Host which then includes the resurrected saints of the First Resurrection.
It is at this time that Christ begins to deal with the earth and take captivity captive and to destroy the armies of the Beast. The First army he deals with is that of the King of the North which is the force of the NATO armies. He will destroy the Antichrist and the False Prophet at his coming and then begin to destroy the religions of the Sun and Mystery cults all over the world. Every single false religion of the Sunday worshipping Trinitarians and the Hadithic Muslims and the followers of the Beast system and false religion of this world, all over the world, will be brought to Megiddo and have their armies killed, and equipment destroyed; and then their people be dealt with in their nations.
We continue in Revelation 11:15.
 Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign for ever and ever."  And the twenty-four elders who sit on their thrones before God fell on their faces and worshiped God,  saying, "We give thanks to thee, Lord God Almighty, who art and who wast, that thou hast taken thy great power and begun to reign.  The nations raged, but thy wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, for rewarding thy servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear thy name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth."  Then God's temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen within his temple; and there were flashes of lightning, voices, peals of thunder, an earthquake, and heavy hail.
So we see at the end of the 1260 days the Witnesses are killed by the Beast power that is finally allowed to kill them. Over the 1260 days they have witnessed to the world and told them what is expected of the people of the world and caused them to suffer plagues and fire and drought because they will not obey God. They lie in the streets for 3.5 days as they will not be permitted to be buried so that their witness can be discounted. At the end of the 3.5 days they are resurrected with the shout of the Archangel and Messiah comes to the Mt. of Olives. It splits in two and forms a massive valley 66 km. in length and closes the tongue of the Egyptian sea and becomes a prepared killing ground for the armies of the world at what is termed Armageddon.
The Wars in the Middle East commenced under Fundamentalist Islam from 2001 and also their attacks on the Western power and major cities.
This war continues on until the coming of the Messiah and under him for a further sabbatical cycle. The sequence and nations involved are explained in the paper The War of Hamon-Gog (No. 294).
Messiah is sent to destroy the false religions of the planet set up under Trinitarian Christianity and Hadithic Islam as well as the religions of Liberation Theology. The Host also then deal with the humanist systems of Agnosticism and Atheism as well as Gnostic faiths of Antinomianism and the belief of heaven and hell. False religion and its false teachers and Animinism will be stamped out by Christ over this next period (See also: Antinomian Attacks on the Law of God (No. 164D); Antinomian Denial of Baptism (No. 164E) and Antinomian Destruction of Christianity by Misuse of Scripture (No. 164C).)
The Vials of the Wrath of God
These are seven last plagues and with them the wrath of God is ended.
Revelation 15:  Then I saw another portent in heaven, great and wonderful, seven angels with seven plagues, which are the last, for with them the wrath of God is ended.  And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands.  And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, "Great and wonderful are thy deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are thy ways, O King of the ages!  Who shall not fear and glorify thy name, O Lord? For thou alone art holy. All nations shall come and worship thee, for thy judgments have been revealed."  After this I looked, and the temple of the tent of witness in heaven was opened,  and out of the temple came the seven angels with the seven plagues, robed in pure bright linen, and their breasts girded with golden girdles.  And one of the four living creatures gave the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives for ever and ever;  and the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power, and no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were ended.
So one of the Cherubim that surrounded the throne of God gave the seven angels charged with the task the seven vials or bowls with the plagues of the wrath of God. They were then told to go and pour the vials out on the earth.
Revelation 16:  Then I heard a loud voice from the temple telling the seven angels, "Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God."  So the first angel went and poured his bowl on the earth, and foul and evil sores came upon the men who bore the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.
The marks of the first vial dealt with the false religions of the earth in the last days. This is the judgment of the whore and all those who followed the Babylonian system throughout the earth. NO nation will be safe from this vial or from the others. Every minister and priest that does not follow the Laws of God and the Sacred Calendar and teaches others not to do so will die (see also the paper God’s Calendar (No. 156)). Every nation will be required to keep the Sabbaths and New Moons and the Feasts and at Tabernacles they must send their national representatives to Jerusalem under Messiah to be given direction. Those that do not do so will get no rain in due season and they will suffer the plagues of Egypt (Zech. 14:16-19). This is not negotiable and will continue on for the next 1100 years.
Second and Third Vials
The second and third vials deal with the capacity to survive either on land or by sea.
Revelation 16:  The second angel poured his bowl into the sea, and it became like the blood of a dead man, and every living thing died that was in the sea.  The third angel poured his bowl into the rivers and the fountains of water, and they became blood.  And I heard the angel of water say, "Just art thou in these thy judgments, thou who art and wast, O Holy One.  For men have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink. It is their due!"  And I heard the altar cry, "Yea, Lord God the Almighty, true and just are thy judgments!"
As they judged the servants of God who are the saints and the prophets they themselves are judged. All of those people who tried to keep the laws of God and the Sabbaths and the Sacred calendar and were killed for it over the centuries will be resurrected and sit in judgment on these nations and they will be forced to comply with God’s laws.
The Fourth Vial
The next vial concerns the world political systems and the scientists who used the natural cycles of the planet to take over the structure and enforce political change and social engineering through the false teachings of global warming in the last days. As Global Warming was held and taught to be man-made contrary to the historical facts of the matter related to solar cycles the world is taught that it is God that deals with man and saves or heals and feeds them. The scientists continue to oppose the direction of Messiah and the Host and are punished for what they do to the earth.
16:  The fourth angel poured his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch men with fire;  men were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues, and they did not repent and give him glory.
Instead of repenting and giving God glory they do not repent and are made to suffer when they did not need to so suffer. The entire world opposes Christ and sends their armies against him and then, when they are forced to face it in their own lands, they curse God rather than repent (see the papers Global Warming and Biblical Prophecy (No. 218) and Global Warming – Historical Cycles (No. 218B)). Science and Evolution are the religions dealt with under this vial.
The Fifth Vial
16:  The fifth angel poured his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was in darkness; men gnawed their tongues in anguish  and cursed the God of heaven for their pain and sores, and did not repent of their deeds.
The Beast is the New World Order that set up its empire in these last days and was controlled by the politicians and the bankers and the servants of Satan that were given rulership over the world and its International financial system including the IMF and the World Bank and the Ten regional systems symbolised by the Ten Toes of the Feet of Iron and Miry Clay.
Christ first kills the leaders of this system based in Jerusalem at his return and then destroys the International monetary system based in Europe and UK and the US and in Japan and China and the other national unions that are part of it.
The entire world’s financial system and the bankers that conspired to destroy the nations are themselves destroyed and the financial systems and the commercial systems of the world are destroyed. The destruction begins with Europe and the US. The computerised systems of power and heating and light are destroyed by electromagnetic pulse and it is in darkness.
The Sixth Vial
After the forces of the King of the North under NATO are destroyed at Megiddo and Christ deals with the financial system the Euphrates and the Arab systems are brought to subjection and then the Asians march against Christ at Megiddo coming in over Iran and Iraq and through the Euphrates basin.
Prior to that invasion, the Satanic forces prepare the opposition to Messiah through the foul spirits of the Satanic forces using the Beast system and the power of Satan and the religious system in the last days based on the Sun cults initially centred on Rome but who then move to the headquarters of the King of the North at Jerusalem over the 42 months.
As soon as Christ arrives at the Mount of Olives it splits in two; but also Satan is seized and bound in the bottomless pit. The false prophet is also killed with the Antichrist and then Christ begins to deal with the world systems firstly in Europe and the US and the Americas but then throughout the world from Russia to China and Japan. All armies of the world in these last days march against Christ and the Host at Jerusalem and Megiddo.
16:  The sixth angel poured his bowl on the great river Euphra'tes, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east.  And I saw, issuing from the mouth of the dragon and from the mouth of the beast and from the mouth of the false prophet, three foul spirits like frogs;  for they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty.  ("Lo, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is he who is awake, keeping his garments that he may not go naked and be seen exposed!")  And they assembled them at the place which is called in Hebrew Armaged'don.
This reference goes back to the demons sent out before the coming of the Messiah just before the advent also.
Not one army or force will be left standing. The ones who survive will be those who have kept their garments clean and are faithful to the Commandments of God and the Faith or testimony of Christ (Rev. 12:17; 14:12).
The Seventh Vial
16:  The seventh angel poured his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, "It is done!"  And there were flashes of lightning, voices, peals of thunder, and a great earthquake such as had never been since men were on the earth, so great was that earthquake.  The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell, and God remembered great Babylon, to make her drain the cup of the fury of his wrath.  And every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found;  and great hailstones, heavy as a hundred-weight, dropped on men from heaven, till men cursed God for the plague of the hail, so fearful was that plague.
It is at this phase that the entire earth systems are affected by the effects of the vials and the heating of the earth by the solar activity. The solar heat warms it up, melts much of the ice, and covers the islands of the world. The vials change the structure of the earth. From the return of the Messiah and the ending of the tongue of the Red Sea and through to the great earthquake and the Red Sea Rift and into Africa there is great climatic change which is then used as a punishment for the nations. The hail of a hundredweight is massive and will cause massive destruction and reorganisation of the living conditions of the planet. The reorganisation will continue into the millennium. Little will remain of this world’s system.
The Judgment of the Whore over the Vials of the Wrath of God
The explanation of the destruction of the religious whore of Babylon is given in the next two chapters. One thing that must be clearly understood is that there is no negotiation and no action in these false religious systems will go unpunished. The Sun cults and their days of worship other than on the Sabbaths and New Moons and Feasts of God will be destroyed. Not one single system of worship that is not condoned or authorised by the Bible system, and that includes the great heresy of Hillel II and apostate Judaism, will be allowed to survive. None of their priests of the Baal system will be allowed to survive and that includes all these black cassocked priests worshipping on Sundays or Fridays in mosques or even on Sabbaths in Judaism. They will not be allowed to survive. They will all repent or die, and that includes the Churches of God. Not one of these self righteous Sunday worshipping Trinitarian Baptists, Episcopalians, Anglicans, Orthodox or Roman Catholic priests of the American or European systems will be allowed to survive without repentance. It does not matter how much they preach against the Messiah and the Temple system that will be established from Jerusalem. They will repent or die. Scripture cannot be broken (Jn. 10:34-36). The entire US and North American religious systems based on their civil calendar of the festivals of the Sun cults will be destroyed as will those of Europe, the Middle East, Asia and South America. They will all make war on the Lamb and march against him over the vials of the wrath of God. But the whore and all her followers in all the Mystery and Sun cults will be destroyed as will every building and statue or icon and obelisk or edifice they construct. They will all be destroyed before the commencement of the millennial system. Nothing of this idolatry will go into it or be used in its construction.
Revelation 17:  Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who is seated upon many waters,  with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and with the wine of whose fornication the dwellers on earth have become drunk."  And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns.  The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and bedecked with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her fornication;  and on her forehead was written a name of mystery: "Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of earth's abominations."  And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her I marveled greatly.  But the angel said to me, "Why marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast with seven heads and ten horns that carries her.  The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is to ascend from the bottomless pit and go to perdition; and the dwellers on earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will marvel to behold the beast, because it was and is not and is to come.  This calls for a mind with wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman is seated;  they are also seven kings, five of whom have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come, and when he comes he must remain only a little while.  As for the beast that was and is not, it is an eighth but it belongs to the seven, and it goes to perdition.  And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast.  These are of one mind and give over their power and authority to the beast;  they will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful."  And he said to me, "The waters that you saw, where the harlot is seated, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues.
This whore is dealt with over the last days by the Beast and she is destroyed by the Beast itself under this last empire of the Ten Economic Regions of the NWO of the Beast.
 And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will hate the harlot; they will make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire,  for God has put it into their hearts to carry out his purpose by being of one mind and giving over their royal power to the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.  And the woman that you saw is the great city which has dominion over the kings of the earth."
This is and was Rome that was the centre of the last empires of the Babylonian system and after its seat of power is destroyed and it moves to Jerusalem it will itself be destroyed by Messiah under the direction of God who judges her. Then the entire world is brought to submission under Messiah through the tribulation of the Vials of the Wrath of God and the entire world will be brought into subjection to God under Christ ruling from Jerusalem.
Revelation 18:  After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority; and the earth was made bright with his splendor.  And he called out with a mighty voice, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! It has become a dwelling place of demons, a haunt of every foul spirit, a haunt of every foul and hateful bird;  for all nations have drunk the wine of her impure passion, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown rich with the wealth of her wantonness."  Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues;  for her sins are heaped high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.  Render to her as she herself has rendered, and repay her double for her deeds; mix a double draught for her in the cup she mixed.  As she glorified herself and played the wanton, so give her a like measure of torment and mourning. Since in her heart she says, `A queen I sit, I am no widow, mourning I shall never see,'  so shall her plagues come in a single day, pestilence and mourning and famine, and she shall be burned with fire; for mighty is the Lord God who judges her."  And the kings of the earth, who committed fornication and were wanton with her, will weep and wail over her when they see the smoke of her burning;  they will stand far off, in fear of her torment, and say, "Alas! alas! thou great city, thou mighty city, Babylon! In one hour has thy judgment come."  And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn for her, since no one buys their cargo any more,  cargo of gold, silver, jewels and pearls, fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet, all kinds of scented wood, all articles of ivory, all articles of costly wood, bronze, iron and marble,  cinnamon, spice, incense, myrrh, frankincense, wine, oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and slaves, that is, human souls.  "The fruit for which thy soul longed has gone from thee, and all thy dainties and thy splendor are lost to thee, never to be found again!"  The merchants of these wares, who gained wealth from her, will stand far off, in fear of her torment, weeping and mourning aloud,  "Alas, alas, for the great city that was clothed in fine linen, in purple and scarlet, bedecked with gold, with jewels, and with pearls!  In one hour all this wealth has been laid waste." And all shipmasters and seafaring men, sailors and all whose trade is on the sea, stood far off  and cried out as they saw the smoke of her burning, "What city was like the great city?"  And they threw dust on their heads, as they wept and mourned, crying out, "Alas, alas, for the great city where all who had ships at sea grew rich by her wealth! In one hour she has been laid waste.  Rejoice over her, O heaven, O saints and apostles and prophets, for God has given judgment for you against her!"  Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, "So shall Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence, and shall be found no more;  and the sound of harpers and minstrels, of flute players and trumpeters, shall be heard in thee no more; and a craftsman of any craft shall be found in thee no more; and the sound of the millstone shall be heard in thee no more;  and the light of a lamp shall shine in thee no more; and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall be heard in thee no more; for thy merchants were the great men of the earth, and all nations were deceived by thy sorcery. And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain on earth."
Thus this city is destroyed along with the cities that rule with her and the entire financial system of the world as ruled by this Beast. This Beast that destroyed this whore is destroyed and then through its wanton rebellion places all the world under the vengeance of God. It is doubtful in the extreme if the American political system can hold together over these last days as its system is torn apart and its social groups reorganise into armed camps and probably insurrection. Internment camps will be all over the West as Islamists are interned.
Salvation and Restoration of the Church of God
Over this period the Church of God is saved and the saints are resurrected and all those who did not worship the Beast or take its mark will be saved and the tribes will be restored and taken to their places of heritage (Isa. 65:17-25). The world will then be taught the laws of God and the faith once delivered to the saints.
Revelation 19:  After this I heard what seemed to be the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, crying, "Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,  for his judgments are true and just; he has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication, and he has avenged on her the blood of his servants."  Once more they cried, "Hallelujah! The smoke from her goes up for ever
So those who do not keep the Laws of God and obey Him will be forced in the vials of the wrath of God to come to obedience and those who will not repent will die and be dealt with in the Second Resurrection of the Dead (see the paper The Second Resurrection of the Dead and the Great White Throne Judgment (No. 143B)).
In the year 2025 the Treble Harvest will occur for the declaration of the Jubilee year from Atonement 2026 to Atonement 2027 when all nations and lands will be restored.
The system at Jerusalem will commence the healing of the nations and the regrowth of sea life from the rivers of Jerusalem from under the Temple Mount and the city.
The rest of the world that is left alive will keep the Laws of God for the next thousand years. At the end of that thousand years Satan will be released again and the last war of the end will occur. Then the hundred years of the Second Resurrection of the Dead will occur from 3028 to 3128.
