The Antichrist and all nations that come against Israel will be destroyed:
Zechariah 14 New International Version (NIV)
The Lord Comes and Reigns
day of the Lord is coming, Jerusalem, when your possessions will be plundered
and divided up within your very walls.
will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women
raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city. 3 Then the Lord will
go out and fight against those nations, as he fights on a day of battle. 4 On
that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from
east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south. 5 You
will flee by my mountain valley, for it will extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come,
and all the holy ones with him.
6 On that day there
will be neither sunlight nor cold, frosty darkness. 7 It will be a unique day—a
day known only to the Lord—with no distinction between day and night.
When evening comes, there will be light.
8 On that
day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half of it east to the Dead Sea and half of it west to the Mediterranean Sea,
in summer and in winter.
9 The Lord will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one Lord,
and his name the only name.
10 The whole land, from
Geba to Rimmon, south of Jerusalem, will become like the Arabah. But Jerusalem will be raised up high from the Benjamin Gate
to the site of the First Gate, to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the royal winepresses, and will remain
in its place. 11 It will be inhabited; never again will it be destroyed. Jerusalem will be secure.
12 This is the plague with which the Lord will strike all the nations
that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their
sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths. 13 On
that day people will be stricken by the Lord with great panic. They will seize
each other by the hand and attack one another. 14 Judah too
will fight at Jerusalem. The wealth of all the surrounding nations will be collected—great quantities of gold and silver
and clothing. 15 A similar plague will strike the horses and mules, the camels
and donkeys, and all the animals in those camps.
the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles. 17 If
any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord
Almighty, they will have no rain. 18 If the Egyptian people do not go up and
take part, they will have no rain. The Lord will bring on them the plague he inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles.
19 This will be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that
do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles.
that day holy to the Lord will be inscribed on the bells of the horses, and
the cooking pots in the Lord’s house will be like the sacred bowls in
front of the altar. 21 Every pot in Jerusalem and Judah will be holy to the
Lord Almighty, and all who come to sacrifice will take some of the pots and
cook in them. And on that day there will no longer be a Canaanite in the house of the Lord Almighty.
Daniel 9:20-27 NLT
Gabriel’s Message about the Anointed One
20 I went on praying and confessing my sin
and the sin of my people, pleading with the Lord my God for Jerusalem, his holy
mountain. 21 As I was praying, Gabriel, whom I had seen in the earlier vision,
came swiftly to me at the time of the evening sacrifice. 22 He explained to
me, “Daniel, I have come here to give you insight and understanding. 23 The
moment you began praying, a command was given. And now I am here to tell you what it was, for you are very precious to God.
Listen carefully so that you can understand the meaning of your vision.
24 “A period of seventy sets of seven has been decreed for your people and your holy city to finish their rebellion, to put an end to their sin, to atone
for their guilt, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to confirm the prophetic vision, and to anoint the Most Holy Place. 25 Now listen and understand! Seven sets of seven plus sixty-two sets
of seven will pass from the time the command is given to rebuild Jerusalem until a ruler—the Anointed One—comes. Jerusalem will be rebuilt with streets and strong defenses, despite the perilous times.
this period of sixty-two sets of seven, the Anointed One will be killed, appearing to have accomplished nothing, and a ruler will arise whose armies will
destroy the city and the Temple. The end will come with a flood, and war and its miseries are decreed from that time to the
very end. 27 The ruler will make a treaty with the people for a period of one
set of seven, but after half this time, he will put an end to the sacrifices and offerings. And as a climax to all his terrible
deeds, he will set up a sacrilegious object that causes desecration, until the fate decreed for this defiler is finally poured out on him.”
Jesus defeats Israel's enemies:
12 Then the sixth
angel poured out his bowl on the great Euphrates River, and it dried up so that the kings from the east could march their
armies toward the west without hindrance. 13 And I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs leap from the mouths of the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet. 14 They are demonic spirits who work miracles and go out to all the rulers of the world to gather
them for battle against the Lord on that great judgment day of God the Almighty.
15 “Look, I
will come as unexpectedly as a thief! Blessed are all who are watching for me, who keep their clothing ready so they will
not have to walk around naked and ashamed.”
16 And the demonic spirits gathered all the rulers
and their armies to a place with the Hebrew name Armageddon.
the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air. And a mighty shout came from the throne in the Temple, saying, “It
is finished!” 18 Then the thunder crashed and rolled, and lightning flashed.
And a great earthquake struck—the worst since people were placed on the earth. 19 The
great city of Babylon split into three sections, and the cities of many nations fell into heaps of rubble. So God remembered
all of Babylon’s sins, and he made her drink the cup that was filled with the wine of his fierce wrath. 20 And every island disappeared, and all the mountains were leveled. 21 There
was a terrible hailstorm, and hailstones weighing as much as seventy-five pounds fell from the sky onto the people below. They cursed God because of the terrible plague of the hailstorm.
Revelation 19: 11-21 NLT
The Rider on the White Horse
I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and True, for he judges fairly and
wages a righteous war. 12 His eyes were like flames of fire, and on his head
were many crowns. A name was written on him that no one understood except himself. 13 He
wore a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God. 14 The armies
of heaven, dressed in the finest of pure white linen, followed him on white horses. 15 From
his mouth came a sharp sword to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod. He will release the fierce wrath
of God, the Almighty, like juice flowing from a winepress. 16 On his robe at
his thigh was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords.
17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, shouting to the vultures flying high in the sky: “Come!
Gather together for the great banquet God has prepared. 18 Come and eat the
flesh of kings, generals, and strong warriors; of horses and their riders; and of all humanity, both free and slave, small
19 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the world and
their armies gathered together to fight against the one sitting on the horse and his army. 20 And
the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who did mighty miracles on behalf of the beast—miracles that
deceived all who had accepted the mark of the beast and who worshiped his statue. Both the beast and his false prophet were
thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. 21 Their entire army was
killed by the sharp sword that came from the mouth of the one riding the white horse. And the vultures all gorged themselves
on the dead bodies.
Jesus (a Jew) will rule from New Jerusalem
Revelation 21:1-7 NLT
I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone.
2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like
a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.
heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them,
and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more
death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”
the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this
down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” 6 And he also said,
“It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely
from the springs of the water of life. 7 All who are victorious will inherit
all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children.
