"GODS ANOINTED WARRIORS IN THE LAST DAYS Hosted By DR. DONALD BELL --- MAJOR, USMC, RET. UNVEILING MYSTERIES IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION In Order To BECOME A WARRIOR FOR CHRIST DURING THE COMING TRIBULATIONS SESSION #4 OPENING THE 6TH SEAL & A GREAT WAR IS COMING ( Revelation 6:12-17 + Ezekiel 38
& 39 ) Based upon the Book: GODS ANOINTED WARRIORS by DR. DONALD BELL --- MAJOR, USMC, RET. THE OPENING OF THE SIXTH SEAL Revelation 6:12-17 When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became
black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. THE OPENING OF THE SIXTH SEAL Revelation 6:12-17 Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the
powerful, and everyone, slave and free, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, calling to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, for the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?" WORLDLY LEADERS QUAKING IN FEAR These are the powerful ones of the world, who control the worlds finances and dominate the
social and political direction of mankind. They always denied Christ in their worldly philosophies and ridiculed the people of the Lord. They will eventually acclimate to this season of chaotic events and will organize to fight against the Lord and His people. These are the ones who have willingly chosen to be recruited into the army of Satan. THE 6TH SEAL EVENT
IS TRIGGERED BY ??? This sixth seal catastrophic event -- Triggered by another explosive event designed to strike at the heart of the Lord. A worldly event so massive and powerful that comes against the Kingdom of God -- That only the Lord Himself could possibly bring about its defeat. THE WORLD RECOGNIZES DIVINE DELIVERANCE After the deliverance of Israel from Egypt, many peoples realized that the God of Israel was truly, the most powerful God -- But they refused to submit to Him & continued to oppose the people of God. Now a much greater event is about to take place that
will grab the attention of the entire world An event that may trigger the opening of this 6th seal as well as the subsequent trumpet judgments. A GREAT WAR BEGINS IN THE MIDDLE EAST Approximately 2600 years ago, the Lord spoke to his prophet Ezekiel concerning a great army from the north that was going to descend upon Israel IN THE LATTER YEARS. =========================================== Ezekiel 38:8-9 In the latter years you will go against the land that is restored from war, the land whose people were gathered from many
peoples upon the mountains of Israel, which had been a continual waste. .. You will advance, coming on like a storm. You will be like a cloud covering the land, you and all your hordes, and many peoples with you. NATION OF ISRAEL - PROTECTED BY GOD WHY? This Army Is Made Up Of A Coalition Of Several Nations -- Led By One Of The Most Powerful Nations In The World. Ezekiel was told that this attack would occur in the latter years -- When the inhabitants of Israel have been gathered from many nations and have resettled in the land. Since 1948 Israel has been an established nation whose citizens of Jewish descent have been gathered from
various other nations around the world. NATION OF ISRAEL - PROTECTED BY GOD WHY? Israel is quite a small nation with a population approximating 8 1/2 million yet -- It is also a prosperous nation that is well-armed and nuclear capable -- Thanks mostly to the United States who has been its chief ally since its formation 70 years ago. The majority of the Jewish people are virtually secular and though they respect their ancient heritage, They appear to have little concern for the Lord who, through their father Abraham, established them as a nation Now, why does our Lord continue to care for Israel as a nation?
OUR LORDS UNCONDITIONAL COVENANT Genesis 12:2-3 I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed." OUR LORDS
UNCONDITIONAL COVENANT This covenant was not made because the Lord holds Israel to be a righteous nation, for He says, Ezekiel 36:23-24 And I will vindicate the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, and which you have profaned among them. And the nations will know that I am the Lord, declares the Lord God, when - through you I vindicate my holiness before their eyes. I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries and bring you into your own land. GODS HISTORICAL PURPOSE FOR ESTABLISHING ISRAEL
The Historical Purpose For Establishing Israel As A Nation: That through the Israelites and their circumstances, God will reveal Himself unto all the peoples of the earth. A Great War Is About To Be Launched In The Middle East: The Lord Himself will initiate this Great War by putting hooks into the jaws of the enemies of Israel and dragging them to a place where He will pour out His wrath to such an extent, that the entire world will tremble,, they will come to realize that the Lord of Israel is surely the one true God. BUT The majority of the worldly peoples will continue to hate Him.
A MIGHTY ARMY DESCENDS UPON ISRAEL A Summary Of The Nations Is As Follows (Ezekiel 38:2-6) 1. Russia 2. Iran 3. Sudan 4. Ethiopia 5. Libya 6. Algeria 7. Tunisia 8. Turkey 9. Gomer 10. Many peoples with you = possibly
Palestinians, Hezbollah, Hamas, ISIS These nations (with the exception of Russia) are mostly Islamic that have harbored a deep hatred for Israel since their formation as a nation. A MIGHTY ARMY DESCENDS UPON ISRAEL Ezekiel 38:9 You will advance, coming on like a storm. You will be like a cloud covering the land, you and all your hordes, and many peoples with you. This army appears to be one of the largest and best equipped military force ever assembled: These powerful forces will advance on Israel like a
storm and like a cloud covering the land. Sounds Like A Massive Army Composed Of Ground And Air Forces. THE ORACLE OF DAMASCUS Damascus will cease to be a city and will become a heap of ruins. (Isaiah.17:1) ============================================================ It may be that a war between Israel and Syria will precede the invasion of Israel by the military forces led by Russia and Iran.
The destruction of Damascus and the defeat of the Syrian army may be the episode that ignites the Russian invasion of Israel. This could be the hook in the Soviets jaws that the Lord uses to draw them into the war RUSSIAS MOTIVE FOR INVADING ISRAEL Ezekiel tells us that Magog (Russia) desires to seize spoil and carry off plunder; -- The Middle Eastern countries control the majority of oil resources which drive the worlds economy. Russia wants super-power status -- This alliance with the Middle Eastern nations may
be their opportunity to unseat the United States. This is definitely a hook that the Lord could use to draw Russia into this devastating conflict. The Islamic Nations Need Military Help From Russia THE UNITED STATES WILL NOT ENTER THIS COMING WAR Ezekiel rules out the possibility that any country will come to Israels defense in this war Without the intervention of the United States there is no one else who could possibly stand against these forces The kingdom of this world hates the Israelite people but in
reality, it is a hatred for the God of Israel. For Israel is still the nation that God uses to make His name known throughout the world. And my holy name I will make known in the midst of my people Israel, and I will not let my holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel. Ezekiel 39:7 INVASION FROM THE NORTH & THE LORDS RESPONSE Ezekiel 38:18-23 But on that day, my wrath will be roused in my
anger. For in my jealousy and in my blazing wrath I declare, On that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. And the mountains shall be thrown down, and the cliffs shall fall, and every wall shall tumble to the ground. I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Lord God. Every man's sword will be against his brother.
INVASION FROM THE NORTH & THE LORDS RESPONSE Ezekiel 38:18-23 With pestilence and bloodshed I will enter into judgment with him, and I will rain upon him and his hordes and the many peoples who are with him torrential rains and hailstones, fire and sulfur. So I will show my greatness and my holiness and make myself known in the eyes of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord. INVASION FROM THE NORTH & THE LORDS RESPONSE
To Summarize these Devastations: 1) There will be a Great Earthquake 2) The mountains and cliffs fall upon this invading army. 3) Hailstones, fire, and sulfur rain down upon their heads. 4) Deadly diseases sweep through their ranks 5) Tremendous panic and confusion will eliminate discipline among the troops and they will begin to fire their weapons against one causing a great massacre within their ranks. Perhaps the great earthquake described in this war launches another earthquake that strikes the earth when the Lord opens the sixth seal. CLEANSING OF THE LAND
It will take 7 years of constant fires to cleanse the land of the residue of the planes, helicopters, artillery, tanks, trucks, jeeps,, small arms, and all equipment that is destroyed. The bodies will be buried in a massive graveyard east of the Dead Sea. It will be seven months before the land will be completely clean of all the carcasses. It appears as if hundreds of thousands will be killed during this coming day when the Lord magnifies His holiness as a Defender of His people in Israel. This will be the most catastrophic, worldwide event ever witnessed by mankind since the flood, but the end is not yet; IT IS ABOUT TO WILL INTENSIFY CATASTROPHIC EVENTS
WILL FOLLOW THIS WAR The Lord is not yet done, for Ezekiel receives this additional prophecy from the God of Israel: Ezekiel 39:6 I will send fire on Magog and on those who dwell securely in the coastlands, and they shall know that I am the Lord. This implies a sending of fire upon two groups of people - Russia and those on the coastlands. Sounds very much like a nuclear war.
CATASTROPHIC EVENTS WILL FOLLOW THIS WAR When Gods earthquake hits Israel, fear, confusion, and chaos will cause exchanges of fire between Russia and those on the Coastlands. Possible Scenarios: Nuclear War between Russia & the Coastlands (America?) Muslim terrorists could possibly detonate nuclear suitcase bombs in various cities in retaliation for what they see is an attack upon the Middle Eastern world. Perhaps they believe that this will launch the return of their
Mahdi Messiah. THE PROBABILITY OF A NUCLEAR WAR Nuclear weaponry is of great importance to an evil segment of mankind who desire worldly control. Nuclear war appears to be a judgment from God, as the 6th seal is opened -- Yet it is not the final judgment. This is a war that will end national sovereignty among the nations and -- Bring about a New World Order. It is a war -- That God allows man to bring upon himself. OPENING THE 6TH SEAL
A NUCLEAR WAR ? 1. A Great Earthquake 2. The sun became black as sackcloth & the moon became like blood 3. The stars fell to the earth as a fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale 4. The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up
THE 6TH SEAL FOLLOWED BY 7 TRUMPETS This catastrophic effect of a probable nuclear attack may be what John describes in greater detail in the series known as The seven trumpets which destroy 1/3 of the world. THE GOG-MAGOG WAR: A SECOND ONE COMING! This is a second war that is yet further into the
future, not this war that is recorded by Ezekiel. We know this for several reasons: First, The second Gog Magog war occurs after Jesus has reigned on earth for 1,000 years Second, The war in Revelation involves all the nations from every corner of the earth coming to attack Israel. Finally, after Ezekiels war, life continues - The war in Revelation is followed immediately by the end of this world and the coming of a new heaven and earth.
SUMMARY OF EVENTS IN THE GOG-MAGOG WAR This Great War in Ezekiel 38 & 39 triggers an earthquake that may be the same earthquake in the 6th seal event. Following this earthquake and the Middle Eastern War, there is an exchange of fire upon two groups of people Russia and those on the coastlands (America?). It is highly probable that this is a nuclear war which is more specifically revealed in the coming judgments known as the Seven Trumpets. Most of those who are seen trembling in fear of God will arise to establish a one-world government much like ancient Babel, with the objective of wiping out the people of God from the face of the earth. WORLD-WIDE WAR &
THE CHRISTIAN ATTITUDE True Christianity may be the only friends Israel and the Jewish people will have as this terrible war approaches . We must align ourselves with them and show our solidarity for their people and their nation. At the same time, we must remember that God loves the Muslim people of the Middle East as well as the Russians and others living in the former Soviet Union. Lovers of Christ must love and show compassion to all people. This doesnt mean excusing the actions of antiChristian governments. It is believers hard work to demonstrate and communicate Christs love during mankinds darkest hours.
JESUS CHRIST CONTROLS OUR DESTINY Jesus Christ is the one and only way to eternal life, and those who receive Him as their eternal Savior, are redeemed by this precious blood of the Lamb of God------ He is also the Lion of Judah. He is so mighty and powerful, yet possesses such a deep love for His people, that it is just incomprehensible. He is a Commander who true Christian warriors will readily follow no matter the danger, or what battles have to be confronted, or what costs have to be paid. These are Christian warriors whose deepest desire in this life is to love Him with all of their hearts, all of their souls, all of their minds, and with all of their strength.
