Tribulation: Satan Wrath

Tribulation: Satan Wrath

We will look at and cover what will happen during the 2nd half of the 3.5 years Great Tribulation.  The last half of the half is broken down into two main sections. Satan Wrath / Jacob Trouble and God’s Wrath / Day of the Lord.  Today, we will cover the Scriptures concerning Satan Wrath that is in the Bible.

Antichrist Signs peace Treaty with Israel {Judah},

for overall Peace 

1 Thessalonians 5:3 When people say, “There is peace and security,” destruction will strike them as suddenly as labor pains come to a pregnant woman, and they will not be able to escape. 

Midpoint Tribulation:  Start of Last 3.5 years – Great Tribulation,

Matthew 24:21-22 because at that time there will be great suffering, the kind that has not happened from the beginning of the world until now and certainly will never happen again.  (22)  If those days had not been limited, no one would survive. But for the sake of the elect, those days will be limited. 

Satan Wrath 

Sacrifices, the Jews are doing, are stopped by the Antichrist (Beast) after

3.5 years of 7 years period, of the tribulation is a time of peace.  The Antichrist {Beast} then starts their 3.5 years reign on the earth. 

Daniel 9:27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”

Souls died for the Word of God: Fifth Seal Open, {Rev 6:9-11}

Revelation 6:9-11 When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.  (10)  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 

(11)  Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed.

Jesus description of the last half of the Tribulation {Matt 24:15-29} 

Abomination of Desolation, Man of Sin Revealed,

Economic Babylon Religion, Falling away,

It says Holy Place, Sanctuary, does not mean there has to be a Temple.  It can be a tabernacle with a Holy Place and not a Temple.

The Abomination of Desolation: Altars to idols were set up in Jerusalem and on December 16, 167 B.C. the Jews were ordered to offer unclean sacrifices and to eat swine’s flesh or be penalized by death.  Rome made Torah reading punishable by death, slaughtered a pig on the Altar and erected an idol to Zeus in the Holy of Holies”

Jesus said this will happen again.

Matthew 24:15-16 “Therefore when you see the Abomination of Desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), (16) “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. {hid for 3.5 years}

Daniel 11:31 Armed forces will arise from his midst, and they’ll desecrate the fortified Sanctuary, abolish the daily sacrifice, and establish the destructive desecration.

Daniel 12:11 “And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days.

Mark 13:14 “So when you see the Abomination of Desolation,‘ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not” (let the reader understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.   {this is when individuals from Jerusalem flee to Petra}

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 Do not let anyone deceive you in any way, for it will not come unless the rebellion takes place first and the man of sin, who is destined for destruction, is revealed.  (4)  He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god and object of worship. As a result, he seats himself in the sanctuary of God and himself declares that he is God.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-10 The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the power of Satan. He will use every kind of power, including miraculous signs, lying wonders, (10)  and every type of evil to deceive those who are dying, those who refused to love the truth that would save them. 

War in Heaven, Satan sent to earth, Satan Wrath starts 

Revelation 12:7-14…Summary:  War in heaven, dragon waged war, was thrown down to the earth with great wrath.  Satan persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. The woman fled into the wilderness, for 3.5 years from Satan 

Revelation 12:7-9 Then a war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon and its angels fought back.  (8)  But it was not strong enough, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.  (9)  The huge dragon was hurled down. That ancient serpent, called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world, was hurled down to the earth, along with its angels.  {angels?}

Revelation 12:10-11 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say, “Now the salvation, the power, the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah have come. For the one who accuses our brothers, who accuses them day and night in the presence of our God, has been thrown out.  (11)  Our brothers conquered him by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they did not cling to their lives even in the face of death.

Revelation 12:12 So be glad, heavens, and those who live in

them! How terrible it is for the earth and the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, filled with rage, knowing that his time is short!” 

Revelation 12:13-14 When the dragon saw that it had been thrown down to the earth, it pursued the woman who had given birth to the boy.  (14)  However, the woman was given the two wings of a large eagle so that she could fly away from the serpent to her place in the wilderness, where she could be taken care of for a time, times, and half a time 3 and half years

Fall of Jerusalem, half of city taken into slavery, 

Zechariah 14:1-2  “Look! A day is coming for the LORD, when your plunder will be divided among you.  (2)  I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem, to lay siege against it. The city will be captured, the houses will be ransacked, the women raped, and half of the city will go into exile, but the remaining people will not be cut off from the city.

Israel Remnant Flee, petition Jesus return, and Hid in Edom for Safety for 3.5 years

Hosea 5:15 “I will leave and go back to my place until they admit their offense and seek my face. When affliction comes to them, they will eagerly seek me.” 

Matthew 24:16 then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains. 

Matthew 24:21 because at that time there will be great suffering, the kind that has not happened from the beginning of the world until now and certainly will never happen again. 

Revelation 12:15-17 From its mouth the serpent spewed water like a river behind the woman in order to sweep her away with the flood.  (16)  But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed from its mouth.  (17)  The dragon became angry with the woman and went away to do battle against the rest of her children, the ones who keep God’s commandments and hold on to the testimony about Jesus.

Revelation 12:18 Then the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. 

Revelation 13:1 And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names.

Revelation 13:4-5 They worshiped the dragon because it had given authority to the beast. They also worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who can fight a war with it?”  (5)  The beast was allowed to speak arrogant and blasphemous things, and it was given authority for 42 months.

Revelation 13:7-8 It was allowed to wage war against the saints and to conquer them. It was also given authority over every tribe, people, languages, and nation.  (8)  All those living on earth will worship it, everyone whose name is not written in the Book of Life belonging to the lamb that was slaughtered from the foundation of the world. 

Revelation 13:11-14 I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb and it talked like a dragon.  (12)  It uses all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and it makes the earth and those living on it worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed.  (13)  It performs spectacular signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in front of people.  (14)  It deceives those living on earth with the signs that it is allowed to do on behalf of the first beast, telling them to make an image for the beast who was wounded by a sword and yet lived.  Lamb Like Jesus, signs – witness 

Revelation 13:15-16 The second beast was allowed to impart life to the image of the first beast so that the image of the beast could talk and order the execution of those who would not worship the image of the beast.  (16)  The second beast forces all people—important and unimportant, rich and poor, free and slaves—to be marked on their right hands or on their foreheads,

Revelation 13:17-18 so that no one may buy or sell unless he has the mark, which is the beast’s name or the number of its name.  (18)  In this case wisdom is needed: Let the person who has understanding calculate the total number of the beast, because it is a human total number, and the sum of the number is 666.

2 Witness Ministry Start to Witness to World in Jerusalem for 3.5 years 

Revelation 11:1-6 Then I was given a stick like a measuring rod. I was told, “Stand up and measure the Temple of God and the altar, and count those who worship there.  (2)  But don’t measure the courtyard outside the Temple. Leave that out, because it is given to the nations, and they will trample the Holy City for 42 months.  (3)  I will give my two witnesses who wear sackcloth the authority to prophesy for 1,260 days.”  (4)  These witnesses are the two olive trees and the two lamp stands standing in the presence of the Lord of the earth.  (5)  And if anyone should want to hurt them, fire comes out of their mouths and burns up their enemies. If anyone wants to hurt them, he must be killed in this manner.  (6)  These witnesses have authority to close the heavens in order to keep rain from falling while they are prophesying. They also have authority to turn bodies of water into blood and to strike the earth with any plague, as often as they desire.

Time of Jacob’s Trouble Starts

Time of Israel’s trouble.  Jacob’s Trouble is the Old Testament name for Tribulation.

The “time of Jacob’s Trouble,” when divine wrath is poured out upon apostate {Christian} and Judah {Judaism} alike. 

Daniel 12:1 “At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Everyone who is found written in the book.

Jeremiah 30:4-5 Now these are the words that the Lord spoke concerning Israel and Judah.  (5)  “For thus says the LORD: ‘We have heard a voice of trembling, Of fear, and not of peace.

Jeremiah 30:6-9 Ask now, and see, Whether a man is ever in labor with child? So why do I see every man with his hands on his loins Like a woman in labor, And all faces turned pale?  (7)  Alas! For that day is great, So that none is like it; And it is the time of Jacob’s trouble, But he shall be saved out of it.  (8)  ‘For it shall come to pass in that day,’ Says the LORD of hosts, ‘That I will break his yoke from your neck, And will burst your bonds; Foreigners shall no more enslave them.  (9)  But they shall serve the LORD their God, And David their king, Whom I will raise up for them. 

Focus of “Jacob’s trouble” is Israel. He is going to cleanse those who enter the Millennium.

Magog Invasion in Israel, conquered Jerusalem – Gog, Ezekiel 38, 39

Gog and Magog show up again at the end of the Millennium? Magog is a people; but how can Gog still be alive after 1000 years? Unless He is a demon king.

Magog” is a people;

“Gog” is demon title of the king.

The occasion in which God Himself intervenes to quell the ill-fated invasion of Israel by Magog and its allies (Persia, Cush, Phut, Libya, Gomer, Togarmah, Meshech, Tubal: nations listed in Ezekiel 38:3-6).

Magog was the land of Gog, between Armenia and Cappadocia The name represented Scythian hordes southwest of the Black Sea.

Ezekiel 38:2-6 “Son of Man, turn your attention toward Gog, from the land of Magog, the chief noble of Meshech, and Tubal. Prophesy this against him:  (3)  ‘This is what the Lord GOD says: “Watch out! I’m coming after you, Gog, chief ruler of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal.  (4)  I’m going to turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and bring you out—you and your whole army—along with your horses and cavalry riders, all of them richly attired, a magnificent company replete with buckler and shield, and all of them wielding battle swords.  (5)  Persia, Cush, and Libya will be accompanying them, all of them equipped with shields and helmets.  (6)  Gomer with all its troops, and the household of Togarmah from the remotest parts of the north with all its troops—many people will accompany you. 

Ezekiel 39:1 “Son of man, prophesy against Gog and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshek and Tubal.  

Ezekiel 39:6 ‘I’m also going to set fire to Magog, along with those who are settled down and at home in the islands. That’s when they’ll learn that I am the LORD.

The Demon King identity.  We know the leader of Gog is a Demon King, this explains how both Gog and Magog could invade Israel at the start of Satan wrath and then reappear at the end of the Millennium invading Israel again.

Revelation 20:7-8 When the thousand years are over, Satan will be freed from his prison.  (8)  He will go out to deceive Gog and Magog, the nations at the four corners of the earth, and gather them for war. They are as numerous as the sands of the seashore.  {War equipment}

Amos 7:1-2 {Brenton The Septuagint} Thus has the Lord God shewed me; and, behold, a swarm of locusts coming from the east; and, behold, one caterpillar, king Gog

(2)  And it came to pass when he had finished devouring the grass of the land, that I said, Lord God, be merciful; who shall raise up Jacob? for he is small in number.

Gog the King. the locusts “have no king”.

Proverbs 30:27 Locusts have no king, but they all swarm in ranks.

Revelation 9:3 Locusts came out of the smoke onto the earth, and they were given power like that of earthly scorpions.

Revelation 9:11 They had the angel of the bottomless pit ruling over them as king. In Hebrew he is called Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon.

This shows that Satan is the king and identity as Gog.

The Magog invasion forces come from the north; Armageddon, from the whole earth.  Magog and its allies come to take spoil; Armageddon, to destroy the Jews.

Ezekiel 38:16 You’ll come up to invade my people Israel like a storm cloud to cover the land. In the last days, Gog, I’ll bring you up to invade my land so that the world will learn to know me when I show them how holy I am before their very eyes.”‘”

Isaiah 24:20-21 The earth reels to and fro like a drunkard; it sways like a hut; its transgression lies so heavy upon it, that it falls, never to rise again.  (21)  “And it will come about at that time, the LORD will punish the armies of the exalted ones in the heavens, and the rulers of the earth on earth.

This “Time of Jacob’s Trouble” climaxes in the “Day of the Lord”: (Note that this is 3 1/2 years, not 7, as is so often assumed.)
