Jesus is the One who instigates the judgement of the “Lords Day of vengeance and wrath”, with His fiery Judgement/punishment, but in ancient times and even in our time, as evidenced by the wars of Israel against impossible odds, it is His righteous people who actually take control of the lands of His enemies. Psalms 37:29
2 Samuel 22:10-16 & Psalms 18:7-15 say that the Lord will not be seen during this next judgement..
As prophesied in Psalms 83 & Jeremiah 12:14-22, the terrible Day of the Lord- Malachi 4:1 will be the next Middle East event and is also the Sixth Seal. Revelation 6:12-17, Zephaniah 1:14-18.
This will virtually depopulate the entire Middle East, except for a small remnant left in Jerusalem. Then, His people, Christian Israelites, will gather and settle in all of the holy Land. After this, will come the attack by Gog, from Magog. The Lord will destroy them, so as to display His power. Then, it will be a few years before a One world leader will come to power, then, after the Tribulation, the Lord Jesus returns in His glory to commence His Millennial reign. At that time, He will destroy Satan’s armies attacking Jerusalem. <�/�E�٩<�?�
