Mystery of the Faith Lesson 9

The Battle of Armageddon



There were things taught about this "faith" which they did not understand (a "mystery").  They did not understand (a "mystery") that Jesus would come, be born of a virgin, but would be rejected, crucified, buried, and raised the third day.  They did not understand (a "mystery") that Jesus would ascend to heaven and return at a later time to set up his political kingdom as promised to Abraham.

They did not understand (a "mystery") that Jesus would return as a thief in the night and the born again believers would be taken out, Raptured.  Then a period of great tribulation would follow on the earth for seven years, to purge and prepare the Israeli nation for the 2nd coming of Jesus to be their King and Savior.  At the end of the tribulation period Jesus, with all of his saints, would return and he would conquer the satanic trinity and the nations of the world, and rule for 1,000 years as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
The satanic trinity will try to stop Jesus from returning to the earth at a place called Armageddon.  There will be a battle between the armies of Jesus and the armies of Satan, known as the battle of Armageddon.
