After the armies of the Northern alliance are destroyed, the people of the new nation, living in all of the holy Land, called Beulah; Isaiah 62:1-5 will send out teams to collect the dead. They will be buried in the valley of Wadi al Mawjib, East of the Dead Sea. This will take seven months, then seven years is needed to finally clear up all the debris of the army.
This tremendous defeat of a very large and well equipped modern army, will have dramatic repercussions. On top of the already huge disruptions caused by the previous world wide devastation – food and oil shortages, economic crisis, refugee problems, etc. The world’s leaders will meet and the most logical way to address all the issues, is to form a One World government. Daniel 7:23-24, Rev 17:12-13. Initially ten rulers will share the authority, but after a while, they will confer their power onto one man. The President of this World Alliance will be a strong leader and he will eventually take dictatorial powers over it. Daniel 11:21
Meanwhile, in Jerusalem, construction of the Third Temple will be completed. Zechariah 6:15

After 3½ years, the world leader will be assassinated, but his body will be taken over by Lucifer. Revelation 13:3-4 He will come to Beulah and establish worship of himself in the Temple. Matthew 24:15 So, when you see the ‘abomination of desolation’ standing in the Holy place….

That is when the Lord Jesus will return to the earth in His glory and destroys those armies in His mighty power. Revelation 19:15 & Zechariah 14:3-5. Lucifer (Satan) will be chained and imprisoned and Jesus will rule the world for 1000 years. Then, Satan will be released for a short time. He will seduce the nations and will muster them for war, the countless hosts of armies from around the world. They will lay siege to Gods City. Fire comes down from heaven and cremates them all. Satan is thrown into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:7-9. Then will come the Great White Throne judgement of all people and angels. Revelation 20:11-14, Daniel 7:9-10Bruce McKerras September 2010
