Jesus Strikes Back! The Battle of Armageddon! The greatest battle on earth ever! The ultimate battle between good, Jesus and His forces, verses evil, Satan and his forces; A battle renown throughout Old Testament and New Testament; A battle yet to take place, on earth, in our future era of the Apocalypse. What is the outcome of this great battle? Jesus, and His forces, Michael the Archangel and his angels, Win! Satan is defeated! Messianic Reign begins! 'Thy Kingdom Come' will have come. With Jesus, a descendant of King David, Ruling the world, 'Thy Kingdom Come' of Zion is born and Israel is restored. Hallelujah! Praise be to God! Let Jesus Rule! Let our King, Jesus Christ, Reign over the world!

One is not Ruler, until One's subjects, enforce One's Rules. At the very moment Christ's Angels of the Apocalypse, take up Christ's sword, to enact and enforce Christ's Law upon the whole world at Armageddon, it is then that Jesus is enthroned as King and Ruler over the whole earth, forever. The bowls of God's wrath, poured out at Armageddon, are world-wide auto-anathemas being put into enforcement on earth, by Christ's servants. Once the walls of auto-anathemas go up, God’s Kingdom on earth, which will be Zion, will have come. The only way into Christ’s Kingdom Come of Zion will be through the gates of Zion and the gates of Zion are the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Baptism. Many will pass through the gates of Zion when they see the Glory and gifts God is going to bestow upon Zion. Jesus will Rule the world, from the Battle of Armageddon forward, forever and ever! Hallelujah!

NAB2 REV 16:16

They then assembled the kings in the place that is named Armageddon in Hebrew. The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air. A loud voice came out of the temple from the throne, saying, “It is done.”

NAB2 REV 11:15

Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet. There were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world now belongs to our Lord and to his Anointed, and he will reign forever and ever.”
The weapon Jesus uses to defeat Satan on the battlefield of Armageddon is the sword of His mouth. The sword of Christ's mouth is His power to hold sins bound, 'With the breath of His lips He slays the wicked'. The physical death and destruction, described in Revelations, which happens at the very moment Jesus is enthroned as King and Ruler over the world at Armageddon, is really describing spiritual death destruction from anathema. Church anathema is the fire which illumines the world directly preceding Christ's enthronement on earth. PSA 97, "Fire goes before him; everywhere it consumes the foes. Lightning illumines the world; the earth sees and trembles." Church anathema is the sword of Christ's mouth on earth, which, under Messianic Reign, Jesus shepherds all the nations with the sword of His mouth. Angels and Apostolic Successors, who are soldiers serving under Christ's Command, are in possession of the sword of Christ's mouth and fully capable, with Jesus and the Father backing them up from heaven, of fighting and defeating Satan, to deliver victory for their King, Jesus Christ, at Armageddon.

The Battle of Armageddon is not the dreaded event of doomsday but instead the glorious event of the restoration of Israel and the Great War to establish Christ's Power, Authority and Reign over God's Kingdom on earth forever. The woes of Revelation do not harm Christ's faithful. The woes of Revelation protect Christ's faithful from the wicked. Hallelujah! Let Jesus Rule! Let all the earth rejoice! Let Jesus govern the earth with justice! Let God's Kingdom on earth come! Hallelujah!

NAB2 PSA 96:11

Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice; let the sea and what fills it resound; let the plains be joyful and all that is in them. Then let all the trees of the forest rejoice before the LORD who comes, who comes to govern the earth, To govern the world with justice and the peoples with faithfulness.

NAB2 PSA 97

The LORD is king; let the earth rejoice; let the many islands be glad. Cloud and darkness surround the Lord; justice and right are the foundation of his throne. Fire goes before him; everywhere it consumes the foes. Lightning illumines the world; the earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim God’s justice; all peoples see his glory. All who serve idols are put to shame, who glory in worthless things; all gods bow down before you. Zion hears and is glad, and the cities of Judah rejoice because of your judgments, O LORD. You, LORD, are the Most High over all the earth, exalted far above all gods. The LORD loves those who hate evil, protects the lives of the faithful, rescues them from the hand of the wicked. Light dawns for the just; gladness, for the honest of heart. Rejoice in the LORD, you just, and praise his holy name.

NAB2 PSA 110:1

A psalm of David. The LORD says to you, my lord: “Take your throne at my righthand, while I make your enemies your footstool.” The scepter of your sovereign might the LORD will extend from Zion. The LORD says: “Rule over your enemies! Yours is princely power from the day of your birth. In holy splendor before the daystar, like the dew I begot you.” The LORD has sworn and will not waver: “Like Melchizedek you are a priest forever.” At your right hand is the Lord, who crushes kings on the day of wrath, Who, robed in splendor, judges nations, crushes heads across the wide earth, Who drinks from the brook by the wayside and thus holds high the head.
Jesus is enthroned as Ruler over the whole world upon Armageddon. Can free willed people hate God through major sins like fornication, abortion, adultery, perjury, and theft under Messianic Reign on free willed earth? Christ's Law, going into effect upon His enthronement as Ruler over the whole earth, is what makes the Battle of Armageddon so destructive. It is spiritual death, not physical death, being delivered by the sword of Christ's mouth at Armageddon. Under Messianic Reign, sinners falling spiritually dead, on the Battlefield of Armageddon, can repent of their sins, receive absolution from their sins, and rise back to spiritual life to be with Jesus in Zion. Man's repentance to love God, and therefore spiritually live again through absolution of their sins, is desired under Messianic Reign, but not mandatory. People who do not repent of major sin are doomed to spiritual death by the strikes from the sword of Christ's mouth delivered at the Battle of Armageddon. Man's evil pride in obstinate non-repentance, which is Satan, is annihilated by Jesus at Armageddon and under Messianic Reign. The short version, under Messianic Reign, if sinners do not repent (turn from sin), they go to hell. The deception of Satan, which Satan is man's evil pride, in thinking that man can get away with unrepentant sin and still go to heaven, will be eliminated by Jesus, through His angels, at Armageddon.

The 'curse' which consumes and destroys in ZEC 5 and ISA 24, quoted below, is the sword of Christ's mouth, Church anathema. The burning, consuming and death, in the quotes about Armageddon below, is spiritual death carnage from the sword of Christ's mouth. It is the sword of Christ's mouth, His power to hold sins bound, wielded by Archangel Michael and his angels, which brings man's evil unrepentant pride, Satan, to defeat at Armageddon. Through the overwhelming brute force of the sword of His mouth, Jesus takes over as Ruler of the world, at Armageddon. The sword of Christ's mouth, putting to death, (actually spiritual death), unrepentant sinners at Armageddon, is our Messianic Ruler's Laws being put into enforcement by Christ's great Combat Angels of the Apocalypse. Jesus will Rule the earth, with, and through, His Angels of the Apocalypse, from Armageddon forward, forever.

NAB MAT 13:36

The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. Just as weeds are collected and burned (up) with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his kingdom all who cause others to sin and all evildoers. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears ought to hear."

NAB MAT 25:31

"When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne, and all the nations will be assembled before him. And he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. "

NAB3 LUK 22:28 Role of the Disciples

It is you who have stood by me in my trials; and I confer a kingdom on you, just as my Father has conferred one on me, that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom; and you will sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

NAB MAT 13:47 Parable of the Net

" The reign of God is also like a dragnet thrown into the lake, which collected all sorts of things. When it was full they hauled it ashore and sat down to put what was worthwhile into containers. What was useless they threw away. That is how it will be at the end of the world. Angels will go out and separate the wicked from the just and hurl the wicked into the fiery furnace, where they will wail and grind their teeth.""

NAB REV 12:5

She gave birth to a son--a boy destined to shepherd all the nations with an iron rod. Her child was caught up to God and to his throne. The woman herself fled into the desert, where a special place had been prepared for her by God; there she was taken care of for twelve hundred and sixty days...

...Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. Although the dragon and his angels fought back, they were overpowered and lost their place in heaven. The huge dragon, the ancient serpent known as the devil or Satan, the seducer of the whole world, was driven out; he was hurled down to earth and his minions with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have salvation and power come, the reign of our God and the authority of his Anointed One.

St. Michael the Archangel

...In art St. Michael is represented as an angelic warrior, fully armed with helmet, sword, and shield (often the shield bears the Latin inscription: Quis ut Deus), standing over the dragon, whom he sometimes pierces with a lance. He also holds a pair of scales in which he weighs the souls of the departed (cf. Rock, "The Church of Our Fathers", III, 160), or the book of life, to show that he takes part in the judgment...

Quoted from New Advent Catholic Encyclopedia:
http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/10275b.htm

Jesus Himself will shield His angels, Michael and his angels, from the full force of Satan, at the Battle of Armageddon. It is at the Battle of Armageddon that Jesus is enthroned as King and Ruler of the world, forever. It is at the Battle of Armageddon where Satan takes his fall.

NAB LUK 10:16

The seventy(-two) returned rejoicing, and said, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us because of your name.” Jesus said, “I have observed Satan fall like lightning from the sky. Behold, I have given you the power ‘to tread upon serpents’ and scorpions and upon the full force of the enemy and nothing will harm you.

The Battle of Armageddon is where angels are made. Fighting under the Command of our Lord Jesus Christ, Archangel Michael engages the foe, Satan, in combat, at the Battle of Armageddon. Michael, and his angels, slay the dragon and pull Christ's Church, Israel and the world, back from the edge of the abyss. Church anathema, which is the sword of Christ's mouth, is the weapon of a Combat Angel. Jesus wields the sword of His mouth, at Armageddon, through His army of Combat Angels who are already on earth awaiting His command. Angels 'coming down from heaven' symbolically means that those fighting on the Battlefield of Armageddon are doing so under Christ's command. Christ's Apostles, whom Jesus swore He will not forgive anyone whom they call upon Him to bind to sin, are Christ's great Combat Angels at Armageddon.

NAB REV 1:16

A sharp, two-edged sword came out of his mouth, and his face shone like the sun at its brightest. When I caught sight of him I fell down at his feet as though dead, he touched me with his right hand and said: "There is nothing to fear. I am the First and the Last and the One who lives. Once I was dead but not I live-- forever and ever. I hold the keys of death and the nether world." "

NAB REV 19:11 The King of kings.

The heavens were opened, and as I looked on, a white horse appeared; its rider was called "The Faithful and True." Justice is his standard in passing judgment and in waging war. His eyes blazed like fire, and on his head were many diadems. Inscribed on his person was a name known to no one but himself. He wore a cloak that had been dipped in blood, and his name was the Word of God. The armies of heaven were behind him riding white horses and dressed in fine linen, pure and white. Out of his mouth came a sharp sword for striking down the nations. He will shepherd them with an iron rod; it is he who will tread out in the winepress the blazing wrath of God the Almighty. A name was written on the part of the cloak that covered his thigh: "King of kings and Lord of lords."...

...REV 19:19 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth, and the armies they had mustered to do battle with the One riding the horse, and with his army. The beast was captured along with the false prophet who preformed in its presence the prodigies that led men astray, making them accept the mark of the beast and worship its image. Both were hurled down alive into the fiery pool of burning sulphur. The rest were slain by the sword of the One who rode the horse and all the birds gorged themselves on the flesh of the slain.

NAB2 ISA 30:26

On the day the LORD binds up the wounds of his people, he will heal the bruises left by his blows. ;See the name of the LORD coming from afar in burning wrath, with lowering clouds! His lips are filled with fury, his tongue is like a consuming fire; His breath, like a flood in a ravine that reaches suddenly to the neck, Will winnow the nations with a destructive winnowing, and with repeated winnowings will he battle against them (and a bridle on the jaws of the peoples to send them astray). ;The LORD will make his glorious voice heard, and let it be seen how his arm descends In raging fury and flame of consuming fire, in driving storm and hail. ;When the LORD speaks, Assyria will be shattered, as he strikes with the rod; While at every sweep of the rod which the LORD will bring down on him in punishment, You will sing as on a night when a feast is observed, And be merry of heart, as one marching along with a flute Toward the mountain of the LORD, toward the Rock of Israel, accompanied by the timbrels and lyres. For the pyre has long been ready, prepared for the king; Broad and deep it is piled with dry grass and wood in abundance, And the breath of the LORD, like a stream of sulphur, will set it afire.

NAB2 PSA 29:1

A psalm of David. I Give to the LORD, you heavenly beings, give to the LORD glory and might; Give to the LORD the glory due God’s name. Bow down before the LORD’S holy splendor! The voice of the LORD is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the LORD, over the mighty waters. The voice of the LORD is power; the voice of the LORD is splendor. voice of the LORD cracks the cedars; the LORD splinters the cedars of Lebanon, Makes Lebanon leap like a calf, and Sirion like a young bull. The voice of the LORD strikes with fiery flame; the voice of the LORD rocks the desert; the LORD rocks the desert of Kadesh. The voice of the LORD twists the oaks and strips the forests bare. All in his palace say, “Glory!” The LORD sits enthroned above the flood! The LORD reigns as king forever! May the LORD give might to his people; may the LORD bless his people with peace!

“J.M.J. The third part of the secret revealed at the Cova da Iria-Fatima, on 13 July 1917.

I write in obedience to you, my God, who command me to do so through his Excellency the Bishop of Leiria and through your Most Holy Mother and mine. After the two parts which I have already explained, at the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire;...

NAB PSA 2:1

Why do the nations protest and the peoples grumble in vain? Kings on earth rise up and princes plot together against the LORD and his anointed: “Let us break their shackles and cast off their chains!” The one enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord derides them, Then speaks to them in anger, terrifies them in wrath: “I myself have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.” I will proclaim the decree of the LORD, who said to me, “You are my son; today I am your father. Only ask it of me, and I will make your inheritance the nations, your possession the ends of the earth. With an iron rod you shall shepherd them, like a clay pot you will shatter them.” And now, kings, give heed; take warning, rulers on earth. Serve the LORD with fear; with trembling bow down in homage, Lest God be angry and you perish from the way in a sudden blaze of anger. Happy are all who take refuge in God!

NAB2 REV 10:1

Then I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven wrapped in a cloud, with a halo around his head; his face was like the sun and his feet were like pillars of fire. In his hand he held a small scroll that had been opened. He placed his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, and then he cried out in a loud voice as a lion roars. When he cried out, the seven thunders raised their voices, too. When the seven thunders had spoken, I was about to write it down; but I heard a voice from heaven say, “Seal up what the seven thunders have spoken, but do not write it down.” Then the angel I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven and swore by the one who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and earth and sea and all that is in them, “There shall be no more delay. At the time when you hear the seventh angel blow his trumpet, the mysterious plan of God shall be fulfilled, as he promised to his servants the prophets.”

NAB2 ZEC 5:1

Then I raised my eyes again and saw a scroll flying. “What do you see?” he asked me. I answered, “I see a scroll flying; it is twenty cubits long and ten cubits wide.” Then he said to me: “This is the curse which is to go forth over the whole earth; in accordance with it shall every thief be swept away, and in accordance with it shall every perjurer be expelled from here. I will send it forth, says the LORD of hosts, and it shall come into the house of the thief, or into the house of him who perjures himself with my name; it shall lodge within his house, consuming it, timber and stones.” Then the angel who spoke with me came forward and said to me, “Raise your eyes and see what this is that comes forth.” “What is it?” I asked. And he answered, “This is a bushel container coming. This is their guilt in all the land.” Then a leaden cover was lifted, and there was a woman sitting inside the bushel. “This is Wickedness,” he said; and he thrust her inside the bushel, pushing the leaden cover into the opening. Then I raised my eyes and saw two women coming forth with a wind ruffling their wings, for they had wings like the wings of a stork. As they lifted up the bushel into the air, I said to the angel who spoke with me, “Where are they taking the bushel?” He replied, “To build a temple for it in the land of Shinar; when the temple is ready, they will deposit it there in its place.”

NAB2 GEN 10:10

The chief cities of his kingdom were Babylon, Erech, and Accad, all of them in the land of Shinar.
At Armageddon, Babylon ('Babylon' is symbolic for Satan), is relocated in hell. The term 'Shinar' is referring to Babylon which, in the Biblical sence, used in ZEC 5, quoted above, means hell.

NAB REV 12:5

She gave birth to a son--a boy destined to shepherd all the nations with an iron rod. Her child was caught up to God and to his throne. The woman herself fled into the desert, where a special place had been prepared for her by God; there she was taken care of for twelve hundred and sixty days...

The huge dragon, the ancient serpent known as the devil or Satan, the seducer of the whole world, was driven out; he was hurled down to earth and his minions with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have salvation and power come, the reign of our God and the authority of his Anointed One.

NAB2 ISA 24:3 Devastation of the World: A Remnant Saved.

The earth is utterly laid waste, utterly stripped, for the LORD has decreed this thing. The earth mourns and fades, the world languishes and fades; both heaven and earth languish. The earth is polluted because of its inhabitants, who have transgressed laws, violated statutes, broken the ancient covenant. Therefore a curse devours the earth, and its inhabitants pay for their guilt; Therefore they who dwell on earth turn pale, and few men are left.

NAB REV 2:27

He shall rule them with a rod of iron and shatter them like crockery; and I will give him the morning star.
ISA 24 Continued: From the end of the earth we hear songs: “Splendor to the Just One!” But I said, “I am wasted, wasted away. Woe is me! The traitors betray: with treachery have the traitors betrayed! Terror, pit, and trap are upon you, inhabitant of the earth; He who flees at the sound of terror will fall into the pit; He who climbs out of the pit will be caught in the trap. For the windows on high will be opened and the foundations of the earth will shake. The earth will burst asunder, the earth will be shaken apart, the earth will be convulsed. The earth will reel like a drunkard, and it will sway like a hut; Its rebellion will weigh it down, until it falls, never to rise again.” On that day the LORD will punish the host of the heavens in the heavens, and the kings of the earth on the earth. They will be gathered together like prisoners into a pit; They will be shut up in a dungeon, and after many days they will be punished. Then the moon will blush and the sun grow pale, For the LORD of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, glorious in the sight of his elders.

NAB REV 18:21

A powerful angel picked up a stone like a huge millstone and hurled it into the sea and said: "Babylon the great city shall be cast down like this, with violence, and nevermore be found."

In the Promised Land, in 587 BC, Israel fell to the power of Satan. Satan is man's evil human pride on earth through sin. God Himself had led Israel out of Egypt and set her up in the Promised Land. God was King of Israel. God led His people through His servants the kings, priests and prophets of the House of Judah and the House of Israel. Through Israel's evil human pride, through sin, she chose Satan as her leader rather than God. As in Jesus parable of the prodigal son, God mournfully allows His people, through their own free willed choice, to leave Him. God handed Israel and Judah over to Satan to be ruled by Satan. God, who had promised Abraham, to build a great nation out of Israel, the descendants of Abraham, sadly switched to plan B. The House of Judah, due to their evil human pride through sin, "fell from heaven" to be ruled by man's evil human pride, secular power, king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, and the succeeding world leader nations who have taken his place, on earth.

If Jesus were presently ruling the world, we would not have laws allowing abortion, adultery through divorce, fornication, injustice upon the poor, and immorality. God abandon His Kingship over Israel and handed over the leadership of Israel and the world to king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon in 587 BC. This world dominant power and authority is still in the hands of secular powers today who have succeeded in world dominant power from king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. The secular, world dominate, power of Babylon and her successors, falls at the future battle of Armageddon. It is at the battle of Armageddon that Jesus takes over, by force, Kingship over the world. This is why the Book of Revelations tells us that Babylon, as well as Satan, falls at the future Battle of Armageddon. After the Battle of Armageddon, Jesus will be King of kings over the whole world. Upon Armageddon, our King Jesus Christ will 'shepherd all the nations' forever more.

Jesus brings to an end God given power bestowed in secular leaders, which started with king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon at the fall from heaven of the House of Judah. It is at the future apocalyptic battle of Armageddon that Jesus strikes, destroys and disintegrates the statue of king Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. Babylon, or in other words Satan, is defeated! The era of God given power in secular leaders is ended and "Morning Star" Jesus begins His reign as ruler over Israel and the whole world, at the battle of Armageddon.

This is the Battle of Armageddon.

NAB2 LUK 1:46

And Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior. For he has looked upon his handmaid’s lowliness; behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed. The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name. His mercy is from age to age to those who fear him. He has shown might with his arm, dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart. He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones but lifted up the lowly. The hungry he has filled with good things; the rich he has sent away empty. He has helped Israel his servant, remembering his mercy, according to his promise to our fathers, to Abraham and to his descendants forever.”

NAB2 REV 10:7

At the time when you hear the seventh angel blow his trumpet , the mysterious plan of God, shall be fulfilled, as he promised to his servants the prophets.”

NAB JOH 15:1

"I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower. He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit, and everyone that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit. You are already pruned because of the word that I spoke to you. Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in me will be thrown out like a branch and wither; people will gather them and throw them into a fire and they will be burned."

NAB2 LUK 3:4

He went throughout (the) whole region of the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah:

“A voice of one crying out in the desert: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths. Every valley shall be filled and every mountain and hill shall be made low. The winding roads shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth, and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’

He said to the crowds who came out to be baptized by him, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Produce good fruits as evidence of your repentance; and do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father,’ for I tell you, God can raise up children to Abraham from these stones. Even now the ax lies at the root of the trees. Therefore every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.”...//...

...//LUK 3:15 Now the people were filled with expectation, and all were asking in their hearts whether John might be the Messiah. John answered them all, saying, “I am baptizing you with water, but one mightier than I is coming. I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals. He will baptize you with the holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fan is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.” Exhorting them in many other ways, he preached good news to the people.

NAB2 ISA 30:28

His lips are filled with fury, his tongue is like a consuming fire; His breath, like a flood in a ravine that reaches suddenly to the neck, Will winnow the nations with a destructive winnowing, and with repeated winnowings will he battle against them.

NAB3 ISA 41:13

Fear not, O worm Jacob, O maggot Israel; I will help you, says the LORD; your redeemer is the Holy One of Israel. ‘I will make of you a threshing sledge, sharp, new, and double-edged, To thresh the mountains and crush them, to make the hills like chaff. When you winnow them, the wind shall carry them off and the storm shall scatter them. But you shall rejoice in the LORD, and glory in the Holy One of Israel.

NAB ISA 40:1

Comfort, give comfort to my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her service is at an end, her guilt is expiated; Indeed, she has received from the hand of the LORD double for all her sins. A voice cries out: In the desert prepare the way of the LORD! Make straight in the wasteland a highway for our God! Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill shall be made low; The rugged land shall be made a plain, the rough country, a broad valley. ‘Then the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all mankind shall see it together; for the mouth of the LORD has spoken. A voice says, “Cry out!” I answer, “What shall I cry out?” “All mankind is grass, and all their glory like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower wilts, when the breath of the LORD blows upon it. (So then, the people is the grass.) Though the grass withers and the flower wilts, the word of our God stands forever.” Go up onto a high mountain, Zion, herald of glad tidings; Cry out at the top of your voice, Jerusalem, herald of good news! Fear not to cry out and say to the cities of Judah: Here is your God! Here comes with power the Lord GOD, who rules by his strong arm; Here is his reward with him, his recompense before him. Like a shepherd he feeds his flock; in his arms he gathers the lambs, Carrying them in his bosom, and leading the ewes with care.

NAB2 PSA 75:5

For judgment comes not from east or from west, not from the desert or from the mountains, But from God who decides, who brings some low and raises others high. Yes, a cup is in the LORD’S hand, foaming wine, fully spiced. When God pours it out, they will drain it even to the dregs; all the wicked of the earth must drink. But I will rejoice forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob, Who has said: “I will break off all the horns of the wicked, but the horns of the just shall be lifted up.”

NAB2 PSA 147:1

Hallelujah! How good to celebrate our God in song; how sweet to give fitting praise. The LORD rebuilds Jerusalem, gathers the dispersed of Israel, Heals the brokenhearted, binds up their wounds, Numbers all the stars, calls each of them by name. Great is our Lord, vast in power, with wisdom beyond measure. The LORD sustains the poor, but casts the wicked to the ground.

NAB ISA 10:17

The Light of Israel will become a fire, Israel’s Holy One a flame, That burns and consumes his briers and his thorns in a single day.

NAB2 PSA 149:1

Hallelujah! Sing to the LORD a new song, a hymn in the assembly of the faithful. Let Israel be glad in their maker, the people of Zion rejoice in their king. Let them praise his name in festive dance, make music with tambourine and lyre. For the LORD takes delight in his people, honors the poor with victory. Let the faithful rejoice in their glory, cry out for joy at their banquet, With the praise of God in their mouths, and a two-edged sword in their hands, To bring retribution on the nations, punishment on the peoples, To bind their kings with chains, shackle their nobles with irons, To execute the judgments decreed for them— such is the glory of all God’s faithful.Hallelujah!

NAB ISA 27:1

On that day, The LORD will punish with his sword that is cruel, great, and strong, Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan the coiled serpent; and he will slay the dragon that is in the sea.

Assyria is the nation that carried the House of Israel back out of the Promised Land and back into captivity. The House of Judah survived the Assyrian attack and did not fall until Babylon attacked her. Assyria is described as the mighty river the Euphrates. In ISA 14, "out of the serpent’s root shall come an adder, its fruit shall be a flying seraph" is describing secular world dominant power descending and jumping from one world power nation to the next, over time. In God's eyes the pre-Armageddon world is still ruled by Assyrian and Babylonian, world dominant secular power successors. At Armageddon, Jesus smashing the Euphrates is symbolic for Jesus smashing world dominant secular power stemming from the Assyrian, and Babylonian, conquest of Israel and Judah. Between the fall of Israel and Judah to Assyria and Babylon, in 587 BC, to the future apocalyptic Battle at Armageddon, Satan/Babylon/Assyria, and world dominant secular power, which descends from them, are ruling the world. With the 'iron rod' of His mouth, Jesus smashes Israel's foes. Jesus brings His brothers and sisters of Israel back home to ‘the Promised Land II of the Restored Kingdom Israel. After the Battle of Armageddon, God once again is King over Israel, Judah and the world, as God was King over Israel before their fall in 587 BC.

Assyria/Satan's, world dominant secular power, over Israel and the world, along with Assyria/Satan's world dominant secular power successors, falls at the Battle of Armageddon.

NAB2 ISA 8:3

The LORD said to me: Name him Maher-shalal-hash-baz, for before the child knows how to call his father or mother by name, the wealth of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria shall be carried off by the king of Assyria. Again the LORD spoke to me: Because this people has rejected the waters of Shiloah that flow gently, And melts with fear before the loftiness of Rezin and Remaliah’s son, Therefore the LORD raises against them the waters of the River, great and mighty (the king of Assyria and all his power). It shall rise above all its channels, and overflow all its banks; It shall pass into Judah, and flood it all throughout: up to the neck it shall reach; It shall spread its wings the full width of your land, Immanuel!

NAB2 ISA 11:4 The Rule of Immanuel.

But a shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse, and from his roots a bud shall blossom. The spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him: a spirit of wisdom and of understanding, A spirit of counsel and of strength, a spirit of knowledge and of fear of the LORD, and his delight shall be the fear of the LORD. Not by appearance shall he judge, nor by hearsay shall he decide, But he shall judge the poor with justice, and decide aright for the land’s afflicted. He shall strike the ruthless with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked. Justice shall be the band around his waist, and faithfulness a belt upon his hips. Then the wolf shall be a guest of the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; The calf and the young lion shall browse together, with a little child to guide them. The cow and the bear shall be neighbors, together their young shall rest; the lion shall eat hay like the ox. The baby shall play by the cobra’s den, and the child lay his hand on the adder’s lair. There shall be no harm or ruin on all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be filled with knowledge of the LORD, as water covers the sea. On that day, The root of Jesse, set up as a signal for the nations, The Gentiles shall seek out, for his dwelling shall be glorious. On that day, The Lord shall again take it in hand to reclaim the remnant of his people that is left from Assyria and Egypt, Pathros, Ethiopia, and Elam, Shinar, Hamath, and the isles of the sea. He shall raise a signal to the nations and gather the outcasts of Israel; The dispersed of Judah he shall assemble from the four corners of the earth. The envy of Ephraim shall pass away, and the rivalry of Judah be removed; Ephraim shall not be jealous of Judah, and Judah shall not be hostile to Ephraim; But they shall swoop down on the foothills of the Philistines to the west, together they shall plunder the Kedemites; Edom and Moab shall be their possessions, and the Ammonites their subjects. The LORD shall dry up the tongue of the Sea of Egypt, and wave his hand over the Euphrates in his fierce anger And shatter it into seven streamlets, so that it can be crossed in sandals. There shall be a highway for the remnant of his people that is left from Assyria, As there was for Israel when he came up from the land of Egypt.

NAB2 REV 9:13

Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the (four) horns of the gold altar before God, telling the sixth angel who held the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the banks of the great river Euphrates.” So the four angels were released, who were prepared for this hour, day, month, and year to kill a third of the human race.

NAB2 REV 16:12

The sixth angel emptied his bowl on the great river Euphrates. Its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East.

NAB2 ISA 14:29

Rejoice not, O Philistia, not a man of you, that the rod which smote you is broken; For out of the serpent’s root shall come an adder, its fruit shall be a flying saraph. In my pastures the poor shall eat, and the needy lie down in safety; But I will kill your root with famine that shall slay even your remnant. Howl, O gate; cry out, O city! Philistia, all of you melts away! For there comes a smoke from the north, without a straggler in the ranks. What will one answer the messengers of the nation? “The LORD has established Zion, and in her the afflicted of his people find refuge.”

NAB2 ISA 31:4

Thus says the LORD to me: As a lion or a lion cub growling over its prey, With a band of shepherds assembled against it, Is neither frightened by their shouts nor disturbed by their noise, So shall the LORD of hosts come down to wage war upon the mountain and hill of Zion. Like hovering birds, so the LORD of hosts shall shield Jerusalem, To protect and deliver, to spare and rescue it. Return, O children of Israel, to him whom you have utterly deserted. On that day each one of you shall spurn his sinful idols of silver and gold, which he made with his hands. Assyria shall fall by a sword not wielded by man, no mortal sword shall devour him; He shall flee before the sword, and his young men shall be impressed as laborers. He shall rush past his crag in panic, and his princes shall flee in terror from his standard, Says the LORD who has a fire in Zion and a furnace in Jerusalem.
The statue of king Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, in Daniel 2:31, quoted below, represents the succession of secular world dominant power emanating from King Nebuchadnezzar. God handed the House of Judah over to Satan/Babylon in 587 BC. The gold head, or beginning of God's authority in secular power, is king Nebuchadnezzar. The silver chest of the statue represents the Medes and Persians who took possession of world dominant power and authority given to king Nebuchadnezzar. The Medes and the Persians are also represented in the two horned ram in DAN 8:17. The 'he goat' in DAN 8:17 is Greek power which succeeds the Medes and the Persians in world dominant secular power. The iron and tile feet of DAN 2:31 are world leaders, in the age of the Apocalypse, who have succeeded from king Nebuchadnezzar’s, God given, world dominant power to rule over the House of Judah and the world. The feet of the statue of Nebuchadnezzar represent world dominant secular power at the end of this dynasty of God authorized secular power ruling over Judah and the world.

In Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, a stone, which is Jesus, strikes the feet of the statue and the whole dynasty of God given world dominant power and authority, in the hands of secular rulers, is turned into dust and blown away. The "mountain" which takes Babylon/Satan's place is Zion. Upon the Battle of Armageddon, Jesus will take over as King, Morning Star, and world dominant Power over the world from Armageddon forward, forever more. The 'great mountain' which 'filled the whole earth' is the Restored Kingdom Israel with the rebuilt city of Jerusalem, which is Zion, as God's Holy City on earth. God's Holy City Jerusalem, which is Zion, will shine like the sun over all the earth. Zion will shine because our 'Light to the Nations', 'Morning Star', 'the Bride Groom of the Church, Jesus Christ, will reside in Zion.

Babylon/Satan's, Medes and Persians/Satan, Greece/Satan, Rome/Satan, and all world dominant secular power, over Judah and the world, up until Christ's future battle and enthronement, at Armageddon, falls at the Battle of Armageddon.

NAB REV 16:13

I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come from the mouth of the dragon, from the mouth of the beast, and from the mouth of the false prophet. These were demonic spirits who performed signs. They went out to the kings of the whole world to assemble them for the battle on the great day of God the almighty. (“Behold, I am coming like a thief.” Blessed is the one who watches and keeps his clothes ready, so that he may not go naked and people see him exposed.) They then assembled the kings in the place that is named Armageddon in Hebrew. The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air. A loud voice came out of the temple from the throne, saying, “It is done.” Then there were lightning flashes, rumblings, and peals of thunder, and a great earthquake. It was such a violent earthquake that there has never been one like it since the human race began on earth. The great city was split into three parts, and the gentile cities fell. But God remembered great Babylon, giving it the cup filled with the wine of his fury and wrath.

NAB REV 18:21

A powerful angel picked up a stone like a huge millstone and hurled it into the sea and said: “Babylon the great city shall be cast down like this, with violence, and nevermore to be found!

NAB DAN 2:31

“In your vision, O king, you saw a statue, very large and exceedingly bright, terrifying in appearance as it stood before you. The head of the statue was pure gold, its chest and arms were silver, its belly and thighs bronze, the legs iron, its feet partly iron and partly tile. While you looked at the statue, a stone which was hewn from a mountain without a hand being put to it, struck its iron and tile feet, breaking them in pieces. The iron, tile, bronze, silver, and gold all crumbled at once, fine as the chaff on the threshing floor in summer, and the wind blew them away without leaving a trace. But the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.

NAB LUK 20:17

'The stone which the builders rejected has become the keystone of the structure'? The man who falls on that stone will be smashed to pieces, It will make dust of anyone on whom it falls."

This was the dream; the interpretation we shall also give in the king’s presence. You, O king, are the king of kings; to you the God of heaven has given dominion and strength, power and glory; men, wild beasts, and birds of the air, wherever they may dwell, he has handed over to you, making you ruler over them all; you are the head of gold. Another kingdom shall take your place, inferior to yours, then a third kingdom, of bronze, which shall rule over the whole earth. There shall be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron; it shall break in pieces and subdue all these others, just as iron breaks in pieces and crushes everything else. The feet and toes you saw, partly of potter’s tile and partly of iron, mean that it shall be a divided kingdom, but yet have some of the hardness of iron. As you saw the iron mixed with clay tile, and the toes partly iron and partly tile, the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. The iron mixed with clay tile means that they shall seal their alliances by intermarriage, but they shall not stay united, any more than iron mixes with clay. In the lifetime of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed or delivered up to another people; rather, it shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and put an end to them, and it shall stand forever. That is the meaning of the stone you saw hewn from the mountain without a hand being put to it, which broke in pieces the tile, iron, bronze, silver, and gold. The great God has revealed to the king what shall be in the future; this is exactly what you dreamed, and its meaning is sure.”

NAB DAN 8:17

When he came near where I was standing, I fell prostrate in terror. But he said to me, “Understand, son of man, that the vision refers to the end time.” As he spoke to me, I fell forward in a faint; he touched me and made me stand up. “I will show you,” he said, “what is to happen later in the period of wrath; for at the appointed time, there will be an end. “The two-horned ram you saw represents the kings of the Medes and Persians. The he-goat is the king of the Greeks, and the great horn on its forehead is the first king. After their reign, when sinners have reached their measure, There shall arise a king, impudent and skilled in intrigue. He shall be strong and powerful, bring about fearful ruin, and succeed in his undertaking. He shall destroy powerful peoples; his cunning shall be against the holy ones, his treacherous conduct shall succeed. He shall be proud of heart and destroy many by stealth. But when he rises against the prince of princes, he shall be broken without a hand being raised.

NAB2 DAN 10:1

In the third year of Cyrus, king of Persia, a revelation was given to Daniel, who had been named Belteshazzar. The revelation was certain: a great war; he understood it from the vision.//...

...//DAN Continued. “Fear not, Daniel,” he continued; “from the first day you made up your mind to acquire understanding and humble yourself before God, your prayer was heard. Because of it I started out, but the prince of the kingdom of Persia stood in my way for twenty-one days, until finally Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me. I left him there with the prince of the kings of Persia, and came to make you understand what shall happen to your people in the days to come; for there is yet a vision concerning those days.”//...

...//DAN 10:20 Continued. “Do you know,” he asked, “why I have come to you? Soon I must fight the prince of Persia again. When I leave, the prince of Greece will come; but I shall tell you what is written in the truthful book. No one supports me against all these except Michael, your prince, standing as a reinforcement and a bulwark for me.

NAB REV 12:5

She gave birth to a son--a boy destined to shepherd all the nations with an iron rod. Her child was caught up to God and to his throne. The woman herself fled into the desert, where a special place had been prepared for her by God; there she was taken care of for twelve hundred and sixty days...

...Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. Although the dragon and his angels fought back, they were overpowered and lost their place in heaven. The huge dragon, the ancient serpent known as the devil or Satan, the seducer of the whole world, was driven out; he was hurled down to earth and his minions with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have salvation and power come, the reign of our God and the authority of his Anointed One. For the accuser of our brothers is cast out, who night and day accused them before our God. They defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; love for life did not deter them from death. So rejoice, you heavens, and you that dwell therein! But woe to you, earth and sea, for the devil has come down upon you! His fury knows no limits, for he knows his time is short."

NAB MAT 13:36

The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. Just as weeds are collected and burned (up) with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his kingdom all who cause others to sin and all evildoers. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears ought to hear."

St. Michael the Archangel

...In art St. Michael is represented as an angelic warrior, fully armed with helmet, sword, and shield (often the shield bears the Latin inscription: Quis ut Deus), standing over the dragon, whom he sometimes pierces with a lance. He also holds a pair of scales in which he weighs the souls of the departed (cf. Rock, "The Church of Our Fathers", III, 160), or the book of life, to show that he takes part in the judgment...

NAB2 JER 25:11

Seventy years these nations shall be enslaved to the king of Babylon; but when the seventy years have elapsed, I will punish the king of Babylon and the nation and the land of the Chaldeans for their guilt, says the LORD. Their land I will turn into everlasting desert. Against that land I will fulfill all the words I have spoken against it (all that is written in this book, which Jeremiah prophesied against all the nations). They also shall be enslaved to great nations and mighty kings, and thus I will repay them according to their own deeds and according to their own handiwork.

For thus said the LORD, the God of Israel, to me: Take this cup of foaming wine from my hand, and have all the nations to whom I will send you drink it. They shall drink, and be convulsed, and go mad, because of the sword I will send among them. I took the cup from the hand of the LORD and gave drink to all the nations to which the LORD sent me: (Jerusalem, the cities of Judah, her kings and her princes, to make them a ruin and a desert, an object of ridicule and cursing, as they are today;)Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and his servants, his princes, all the people under him, native and foreign; all the kings of the land of Uz; all the kings of the land of the Philistines: Ashkelon, Gaza, Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod; Edom, Moab, and the Ammonites; all the kings of Tyre, of Sidon, and of the shores beyond the sea; Dedan and Tema and Buz, all the desert dwellers who shave their temples; (all the kings of Arabia;) all the kings of Zimri, of Elam, of the Medes; all the kings of the north, near and far, one after the other; all the kingdoms upon the face of the earth (and after them the king of Sheshach shall drink). Tell them: Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Drink! become drunk and vomit; fall, never to rise, before the sword that I will send among you! If they refuse to take the cup from your hand and drink, say to them: Thus says the LORD of hosts: You must drink! For since with this city, which is called by my name, I begin to inflict evil, how can you possibly be spared? You shall not be spared! I will call down the sword upon all who inhabit the earth, says the LORD of hosts. Prophesy against them all these things and say to them: The LORD roars from on high, from his holy dwelling he raises his voice; Mightily he roars over the range, a shout like that of vintagers over the grapes. To all who inhabit the earth to its very ends the uproar spreads; For the LORD has an indictment against the nations, he is to pass judgment upon all mankind: The godless shall be given to the sword, says the LORD. Thus says the LORD of hosts: Lo! calamity stalks from nation to nation; A great storm is unleashed from the ends of the earth. On that day, those whom the LORD has slain will be strewn from one end of the earth to the other. None will mourn them, none will gather them for burial; they shall lie like dung on the field. Howl, you shepherds, and wail! roll in the dust, leaders of the flock! The time for your slaughter has come; like choice rams you shall fall. There is no flight for the shepherds, no escape for the leaders of the flock. Listen! Wailing from the shepherds, howling by the leaders of the flock! For the LORD lays waste their grazing place, desolate lie the peaceful pastures; The lion leaves his lair, and their land is made desolate By the sweeping sword, by the burning wrath of the LORD.

NAB2 ISA 33:10

Now will I rise up, says the LORD, now will I be exalted, now be lifted up. You conceive dry grass, bring forth stubble my spirit shall consume you like fire. The peoples shall be as in a limekiln, like brushwood cut down for burning in the fire. Hear, you who are far off, what I have done; you who are near, acknowledge my might. On Zion sinners are in dread, trembling grips the impious: “Who of us can live with the consuming fire? who of us can live with the everlasting flames?” He who practices virtue and speaks honestly, who spurns what is gained by oppression, Brushing his hands free of contact with a bribe, stopping his ears lest he hear of bloodshed, closing his eyes lest he look on evil— He shall dwell on the heights, his stronghold shall be the rocky fastness, his food and drink in steady supply. Your eyes will see a king in his splendor, they will look upon a vast land. Your mind will dwell on the terror: “Where is he who counted, where is he who weighed? Where is he who counted the towers?” To the people of alien tongue you will look no more, the people of obscure speech, stammering in a language not understood. Look to Zion, the city of our festivals; let your eyes see Jerusalem as a quiet abode, a tent not to be struck, Whose pegs will never be pulled up, nor any of its ropes severed. Indeed the LORD will be there with us, majestic yes, the LORD our judge, the LORD our lawgiver, the LORD our king, he it is who will save us. In a place of rivers and wide streams on which no boat is rowed, where no majestic ship passes, The rigging hangs slack; it cannot hold the mast in place, nor keep the sail spread out. Then the blind will divide great spoils and the lame will carry off the loot. No one who dwells there will say, “I am sick” the people who live there will be forgiven their guilt.

NAB2 HOS 11:1

When Israel was a child I loved him, out of Egypt I called my son. The more I called them, the farther they went from me, Sacrificing to the Baals and burning incense to idols. Yet it was I who taught Ephraim to walk, who took them in my arms; I drew them with human cords, with bands of love; I fostered them like one who raises an infant to his cheeks; Yet, though I stooped to feed my child, they did not know that I was their healer. He shall return to the land of Egypt, and Assyria shall be his king; The sword shall begin with his cities and end by consuming his solitudes. Because they refused to repent, their own counsels shall devour them. His people are in suspense about returning to him; and God, though in unison they cry out to him, shall not raise them up. How could I give you up, O Ephraim, or deliver you up, O Israel? How could I treat you as Admah, or make you like Zeboiim? My heart is overwhelmed, my pity is stirred. I will not give vent to my blazing anger, I will not destroy Ephraim again; For I am God and not man, the Holy One present among you;I will not let the flames consume you. They shall follow the LORD, who roars like a lion; When he roars, his sons shall come frightened from the west, Out of Egypt they shall come trembling, like sparrows, from the land of Assyria, like doves; And I will resettle them in their homes, says the LORD.
MAT 13:36, REV 19:11 and REV 14:12 are no doubt describing the same event. Though REV 14:12 writes about physical blood, the physical blood picture is to describe the great amount of spiritual death that the sword/sickle from the mouth of our Lord will deliver. The sword of Christ's mouth is a spiritual death weapon and not a physical death weapon. Blood, as high as the bridal of a horse, pouring out for two hundred miles, is a physical picture to emphasis the destructive force of the sword, or 'sickle', of Christ's mouth will deliver. The earthquakes, darkening of the sun and moon, and shaking of heaven, descriptions in the Book of Revelations are all symbolically describing the horrific destructive power and force of the sword of Christ's mouth, wielded by Apocalyptic angels.

Whether Jesus or His combat angels wield the sword of His mouth, the sword of Christ's mouth is an infinitely deadly weapon. You may only hear spoken words and see no physical destruction or physical death when the sword/sickle of our Lord's mouth is deployed. Do not deceive yourself. Any strike from the sword of our Lord's mouth delivers infinitely more death, spiritual death, than any physical weapon of man can devise. Angels hurling into hell "all who cause others to sin and all evildoers" (MAT 13 quoted above), the "wine press" of God's wrath, at the battle of Armageddon, is the greatest most powerfully deadly event to ever happen on earth, ever! It is Satan’s destruction of obedient love for God in the heart of man, which brings this event about.

NAB REV 14:12

Here is what sustains the holy ones who keep God’s commandments and their faith in Jesus.

I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Yes,” said the Spirit, “let them find rest from their labors, for their works accompany them.”

Then I looked and there was a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud one who looked like a son of man, with a gold crown on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. Another angel came out of the temple, crying out in a loud voice to the one sitting on the cloud, “Use your sickle and reap the harvest, for the time to reap has come, because the earth’s harvest is fully ripe.” So the one who was sitting on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.

Then another angel came out of the temple in heaven who also had a sharp sickle. Then another angel (came) from the altar, (who) was in charge of the fire, and cried out in a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle, “Use your sharp sickle and cut the clusters from the earth’s vines, for its grapes are ripe.” So the angel swung his sickle over the earth and cut the earth’s vintage. He threw it into the great wine press of God’s fury. The wine press was trodden outside the city and blood poured out of the wine press to the height of a horse’s bridle for two hundred miles.

NAB2 ISA 63:1

Who is this that comes from Edom, in crimsoned garments, from Bozrah- This one arrayed in majesty, marching in the greatness of his strength? “It is I, I who announce vindication, I who am mighty to save.” Why is your apparel red, and your garments like those of the wine presser? “The wine press I have trodden alone, and of my people there was no one with me. I trod them in my anger, and trampled them down in my wrath; Their blood spurted on my garments; all my apparel I stained. For the day of vengeance was in my heart, my year for redeeming was at hand. I looked about, but there was no one to help, I was appalled that there was no one to lend support; So my own arm brought about the victory and my own wrath lent me its support. I trampled down the peoples in my anger, I crushed them in my wrath, and I let their blood run out upon the ground.” The favors of the LORD I will recall, the glorious deeds of the LORD, Because of all he has done for us; for he is good to the house of Israel, He has favored us according to his mercy and his great kindness. He said: They are indeed my people, children who are not disloyal; So he became their savior in their every affliction. It was not a messenger or an angel, but he himself who saved them. Because of his love and pity he redeemed them himself, Lifting them and carrying them all the days of old.

NAB2 ZEC 9:13

For I will bend Judah as my bow, I will arm myself with Ephraim; I will arouse your sons, O Zion, (against your sons, O Yavan,) and I will use you as a warrior’s sword. The LORD shall appear over them, and his arrow shall shoot forth as lightning; The LORD God shall sound the trumpet, and come in a storm from the south. The LORD of hosts shall be a shield over them, they shall overcome sling stones and trample them underfoot; They shall drink blood like wine, till they are filled with it like libation bowls, like the corners of the altar. And the LORD, their God, shall save them on that day, his people, like a flock. For they are the jewels in a crown raised aloft over his land. For what wealth is theirs, and what beauty! grain that makes the youths flourish, and new wine, the maidens!

NAB2 MAT 22:1

Jesus again in reply spoke to them in parables, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be likened to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son. He dispatched his servants to summon the invited guests to the feast, but they refused to come. A second time he sent other servants, saying, ‘Tell those invited: “Behold, I have prepared my banquet, my calves and fattened cattle are killed, and everything is ready; come to the feast.”’ Some ignored the invitation and went away, one to his farm, another to his business. The rest laid hold of his servants, mistreated them, and killed them. The king was enraged and sent his troops, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city. Then he said to his servants, ‘The feast is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy to come. Go out, therefore, into the main roads and invite to the feast whomever you find.’ The servants went out into the streets and gathered all they found, bad and good alike, and the hall was filled with guests. But when the king came in to meet the guests he saw a man there not dressed in a wedding garment. He said to him, ‘My friend, how is it that you came in here without a wedding garment?’ But he was reduced to silence.

NAB2 REV 19:6

The Lord has established his reign, (our) God, the almighty. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory. For the wedding day of the Lamb has come, his bride has made herself ready. She was allowed to wear a bright, clean linen garment.”(The linen represents the righteous deeds of the holy ones.)
MAT 22 Continued: Then the king said to his attendants, ‘Bind his hands and feet, and cast him into the darkness outside, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.’ Many are invited, but few are chosen.”

NAB2 REV 19:14

The armies of heaven followed him, mounted on white horses and wearing clean white linen. Out of his mouth came a sharp sword to strike the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod, and he himself will tread out in the wine press the wine of the fury and wrath of God the almighty. He has a name written on his cloak and on his thigh, “King of kings and Lord of lords.”

NAB2 ISA 27:1

On that day, The LORD will punish with his sword that is cruel, great, and strong, Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan the coiled serpent; and he will slay the dragon that is in the sea. On that day— The pleasant vineyard, sing about it! I, the LORD, am its keeper, I water it every moment; Lest anyone harm it, night and day I guard it. I am not angry, but if I were to find briers and thorns, In battle I should march against them; I should burn them all. Expunging and expelling, I should strive against them, carrying them off with my cruel wind in time of storm. In days to come Jacob shall take root, Israel shall sprout and blossom, covering all the world with fruit.
Jesus does not return to earth until His Second Coming. It is Jesus who rides before His Angels of the Apocalypse to do combat with, and defeat, Satan, at Armageddon. Though Jesus rides before them, leading and fighting the Battle at Armageddon, He fights from His throne in heaven. Lined up on the Battle line at Armageddon, who you will see are Jesus' Angels of the Apocalypse, who faithfully stand behind Jesus to accomplish His will. The sword of Christ's mouth will be deployed, at Jesus' Command, through His Army of Angels on earth, who are Apostolic Successors.

NAB REV 19:11 The King of kings.

The heavens were opened, and as I looked on, a white horse appeared; its rider was called "The Faithful and True." Justice is his standard in passing judgment and in waging war. His eyes blazed like fire, and on his head were many diadems. Inscribed on his person was a name known to no one but himself. He wore a cloak that had been dipped in blood, and his name was the Word of God. The armies of heaven were behind him riding white horses and dressed in fine linen, pure and white. Out of his mouth came a sharp sword for striking down the nations. He will shepherd them with an iron rod; it is he who will tread out in the winepress the blazing wrath of God the Almighty. A name was written on the part of the cloak that covered his thigh: "King of kings and Lord of lords."...

NAB MAT 13:36

The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. Just as weeds are collected and burned (up) with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his kingdom all who cause others to sin and all evildoers. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears ought to hear."

NAB2 MAL 3:12

Then all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land, says the LORD of hosts. You have defied me in word, says the LORD, yet you ask, “What have we spoken against you?” You have said, “It is vain to serve God, and what do we profit by keeping his command, And going about in penitential dress in awe of the LORD of hosts? Rather must we call the proud blessed; for indeed evildoers prosper, and even tempt God with impunity.” Then they who fear the LORD spoke with one another, and the LORD listened attentively; And a record book was written before him of those who fear the LORD and trust in his name. And they shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts, my own special possession, on the day I take action. And I will have compassion on them, as a man has compassion on his son who serves him. Then you will again see the distinction between the just and the wicked; Between him who serves God, and him who does not serve him. For lo, the day is coming, blazing like an oven, when all the proud and all evildoers will be stubble, And the day that is coming will set them on fire, leaving them neither root nor branch, says the LORD of hosts. But for you who fear my name, there will arise the sun of justice with its healing rays; And you will gambol like calves out of the stall and tread down the wicked; They will become ashes under the soles of your feet, on the day I take action, says the LORD of hosts. Remember the law of Moses my servant, which I enjoined him on Horeb, The statutes and ordinances for all Israel. Lo, I will send you Elijah, the prophet, Before the day of the LORD comes, the great and terrible day, To turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers,

NAB LUK 13:6 The Barren Fig Tree.

Jesus spoke this parable: "A man had a fig tree growing in his vineyard, and he came out looking for fruit on it but did not find any. He said to the vinedresser, Look here! For three years now I have come in search of fruit on this fig tree and found none. Cut it down. Why should it clutter up the ground? In answer, the man said, Sir, leave it another year, while I hoe around it another year and manure it; then perhaps it will bear fruit. If not, it shall be cut down."

NAB LUK 17:23

But on the day Lot left Sodom, fire and brimstone rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. It will be like that on the day the Son of Man is revealed.

The End of the Old Testament

When the Battle is over and Satan is defeated
It is then that God's people Return

It is through Judgment, Justice and punishment that Jesus brings His brothers Jacob home to the Promised Land II. Jesus saves mankind from their evil human pride, which is Satan through punishments. As it was God's Woes which liberated Israel from Egypt, so will it be God's Woes which liberate Israel from Satan/Babylon in the era of the apocalypse. As ironical as it sounds, it is punishment delivered at Armageddon, which frees God's people from Satan. The more people form their false god into an 'unconditional love', 'universal salvation', the further from our true God they distance themselves through their sins. The more people think that God will not damn them for anything, the more people head into damnation. Sparing the rod, damns the masses. It is God's woes, deployed by Jesus at Armageddon, which free God's people from Satan/Babylon. Though not all choose to leave Satan/Babylon to return to Zion, scripture indicates many will. Once the 'great famine' hits, ('great famine' is Jesus' 'Prodigal Son' parable, description of Armageddon), many will be the number of prodigal brothers and sisters, of all races and nationalities, whom Jesus brings home to God our Father.

God desires mankind to turn back to love Him. God desires our repentance to spiritual life and not our physical or spiritual death. This is why it is spiritual death anathema being delivered at Armageddon and not physical death, total annihilation from God, through nuclear bombs. Though spiritual death from full scale worldwide Church auto-anathemas is infinitely deadlier than a full scale, worldwide, nuclear holocaust, the spiritual death from the sword of anathema can be healed by God through man's repentance and man seeking out absolution, through Christ's Church, from their sins. Christ's foes who lay spiritually dead on the battle field of Armageddon, can repent, seek absolution from Christ's Church, and rise back to spiritual life to love God in Zion. This is God's goal. Scripture clearly tells us that many do rise back to life through repentance and absolution after Armageddon. Armageddon is the 'great famine' that Jesus and His forces use to rescue many from Satan. Satan is man's evil pride, in unrepentant sin, in individual's and secular leader's, hearts, on earth.

NAB2 ISA 16:1

Let the outcasts of Moab live with you, be their shelter from the destroyer. When the struggle is ended, the ruin complete, and they have done with trampling the land, A throne shall be set up in mercy, and on it shall sit in fidelity (in David’s tent) A judge upholding right and prompt to do justice.

NAB2 LUK 15:11

Then he said, “A man had two sons, and the younger son said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of your estate that should come to me.’ So the father divided the property between them. After a few days, the younger son collected all his belongings and set off to a distant country where he squandered his inheritance on a life of dissipation. When he had freely spent everything, a severe famine struck that country, and he found himself in dire need.

NAB2 PRO 23:13

Withhold not chastisement from a boy; if you beat him with the rod, he will not die. Beat him with the rod, and you will save him from the nether world.
LUK 15 Continued : So he hired himself out to one of the local citizens who sent him to his farm to tend the swine. And he longed to eat his fill of the pods on which the swine fed, but nobody gave him any. Coming to his senses he thought, ‘How many of my father’s hired workers have more than enough food to eat, but here am I, dying from hunger. I shall get up and go to my father and I shall say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I no longer deserve to be called your son; treat me as you would treat one of your hired workers.”' So he got up and went back to his father. While he was still a long way off, his father caught sight of him, and was filled with compassion. He ran to his son, embraced him and kissed him. His son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I no longer deserve to be called your son.’ But his father ordered his servants, ‘Quickly bring the finest robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Take the fattened calf and slaughter it. Then let us celebrate with a feast, because this son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost, and has been found.’ Then the celebration began.

NAB2 HOS 6:1

In their affliction, they shall look for me: “Come, let us return to the LORD, For it is he who has rent, but he will heal us; he has struck us, but he will bind our wounds.“ He will revive us after two days; on the third day he will raise us up, to live in his presence. Let us know, let us strive to know the LORD; as certain as the dawn is his coming, and his judgment shines forth like the light of day! He will come to us like the rain, like spring rain that waters the earth.” What can I do with you, Ephraim? What can I do with you, Judah? Your piety is like a morning cloud, like the dew that early passes away. For this reason I smote them through the prophets, I slew them by the words of my mouth; For it is love that I desire, not sacrifice, and knowledge of God rather than holocausts.

NAB2 MAT 9:11

The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” He heard this and said, “Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. Go and learn the meaning of the words, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.”

NAB2 MAR 12:28

Which is the first of all the commandments?” Jesus replied, “The first is this: ‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” The scribe said to him, “Well said, teacher. You are right in saying, ‘He is One and there is no other than he.’ And ‘to love him with all your heart, with all your understanding, with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself’ is worth more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” And when Jesus saw that (he) answered with understanding, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And no one dared to ask him any more questions. As Jesus was teaching in the temple area he said, “How do the scribes claim that the Messiah is the son of David? David himself, inspired by the holy Spirit, said: ‘The Lord said to my lord, “Sit at my right hand until I place your enemies under your feet.”’ David himself calls him ‘lord’; so how is he his son?” (The) great crowd heard this with delight.
HOS 6 Continued: But they, in their land, violated the covenant; there they were untrue to me. Gilead is a city of evildoers, tracked with blood. As brigands ambush a man, a band of priests slay on the way to Shechem, committing monstrous crime. In the house of Israel I have seen a horrible thing: there harlotry is found in Ephraim, Israel is defiled. For you also, O Judah, a harvest has been appointed.

NAB2 MAL 3:1

Lo, I am sending my messenger to prepare the way before me; And suddenly there will come to the temple the LORD whom you seek, And the messenger of the covenant whom you desire. Yes, he is coming, says the LORD of hosts. But who will endure the day of his coming? And who can stand when he appears? For he is like the refiner’s fire, or like the fuller’s lye. He will sit refining and purifying (silver), and he will purify the sons of Levi, Refining them like gold or like silver that they may offer due sacrifice to the LORD. Then the sacrifice of Judah and Jerusalem will please the LORD, as in days of old, as in years gone by. I will draw near to you for judgment, and I will be swift to bear witness Against the sorcerers, adulterers, and perjurers, those who defraud the hired man of his wages, Against those who defraud widows and orphans; those who turn aside the stranger, and those who do not fear me, says the LORD of hosts. Surely I, the LORD, do not change, nor do you cease to be sons of Jacob. Since the days of your fathers you have turned aside from my statutes, and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you, says the LORD of hosts.

NAB2 HOS 11:10

They shall follow the LORD, who roars like a lion; When he roars, his sons shall come frightened from the west, Out of Egypt they shall come trembling, like sparrows, from the land of Assyria, like doves; And I will resettle them in their homes, says the LORD.

NAB2 HOS 2:1

Then the people of Israel shall turn back and seek the LORD, their God, and David, their king; They shall come trembling to the LORD and to his bounty, in the last days. The number of the Israelites shall be like the sand of the sea, which can be neither measured nor counted. Whereas they were called, “Lo-ammi,” They shall be called, “Children of the living God.” Then the people of Judah and of Israel shall be gathered together; They shall appoint for themselves one head and come up from other lands, for great shall be the day of Jezreel.

NAB LUK 10:16

The seventy(-two) returned rejoicing, and said, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us because of your name.” Jesus said, “I have observed Satan fall like lightning from the sky. Behold, I have given you the power ‘to tread upon serpents’ and scorpions and upon the full force of the enemy and nothing will harm you.
As Moses lifted up the serpant in the desert so will Jesus be lifted up in God's Holy City of post-Armageddon, Zion. As the serpents bit the Israelites in the desert, causing them death, so will auto-anathemas bite the wicked of the world, at Armageddon, causing them spiritual death. Moses raised up a serpants head in the desert so that all who looked upon it were healed. So also will Jesus, our Light to the Nations, be lifted up as the light to the nations, in post-Armageddon, Zion, for all the world to see. Those struck down by strikes from the sword of Christ's mouth, anathema, will see, and journey to, Zion, where they will be healed by Jesus, through the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Those healed by Jesus will spiritually live again in spiritual life, with Jesus in Zion.

Scripture indicates that a massive number of people will repent, convert and return to God, under post-Armageddon, Messianic Reign. Those who live in Zion will enter Zion through the gates of Zion, which the gates of Zion, is the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Punish the wicked with spiritual death through a wall of law enforcement auto-anathemas, and then heal the repentant back to spiritual life through the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Then light the whole world up with Christ's glory when He enters into Zion, within three days after the Battle of Armageddon, as He has promised, so that the entire world can see Him, and they will come to Him to be healed by Him. This is how Jesus brings His brother captive Israel, and the world, home to God under Messianic Reign. This is how Jesus rescues captive Israel, and the world, from Satan. Satan, who is the 'evil one', is Israel and the world's evil human pride.

NAB3 NUM 21:4 The Bronze Serpent.

From Mount Hor they set out by way of the Red Sea, to bypass the land of Edom, but the people’s patience was worn out by the journey; so the people complained against God and Moses, “Why have you brought us up from Egypt to die in the wilderness, where there is no food or water? We are disgusted with this wretched food!”

So the LORD sent among the people seraph serpents, which bit the people so that many of the Israelites died. Then the people came to Moses and said, “We have sinned in complaining against the LORD and you. Pray to the LORD to take the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people, and the LORD said to Moses: Make a seraph and mount it on a pole, and everyone who has been bitten will look at it and recover. Accordingly Moses made a bronze serpent and mounted it on a pole, and whenever the serpent bit someone, the person looked at the bronze serpent and recovered.

NAB3 JOH 3:14

And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.”

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the verdict, that the light came into the world, but people preferred darkness to light, because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come toward the light, so that his works might not be exposed. But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God.

NAB3 JOH 3:28

So Jesus said (to them), “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will realize that I AM, and that I do nothing on my own, but I say only what the Father taught me.

NAB3 REV 22:1

Then the angel showed me the river of life-giving water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of its street. On either side of the river grew the tree of life that produces fruit twelve times a year, once each month; the leaves of the trees serve as medicine for the nations. Nothing accursed will be found there anymore. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will look upon his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. Night will be no more, nor will they need light from lamp or sun, for the Lord God shall give them light, and they shall reign forever and ever.

NAB3 REV 22:14

Blessed are they who wash their robes so as to have the right to the tree of life and enter the city through its gates. Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the unchaste, the murderers, the idol-worshipers, and all who love and practice deceit. "I, Jesus, sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the root and offspring of David, the bright morning star." The Spirit and the bride say, "Come." Let the hearer say, "Come." Let the one who thirsts come forward, and the one who wants it receive the gift of life-giving water.

NAB3 WIS 16:5

For when the dire venom of beasts came upon them and they were dying from the bite of crooked serpents, your anger endured not to the end. But as a warning, for a short time they were terrorized, though they had a sign of salvation, to remind them of the precept of your law. For he who turned toward it was saved, not by what he saw, but by you, the savior of all. And by this also you convinced our foes that you are he who delivers from all evil. For the bites of locusts and of flies slew them, and no remedy was found to save their lives because they deserved to be punished by such means; But not even the fangs of poisonous reptiles overcame your sons, for your mercy brought the antidote to heal them. For as a reminder of your injunctions, they were stung, and swiftly they were saved, Lest they should fall into deep forgetfulness and become unresponsive to your beneficence. For indeed, neither herb nor application cured them, but your all-healing word, O Lord! For you have dominion over life and death; you lead down to the gates of the nether world, and lead back.

NAB3 JOH 12:31

Now is the time of judgment on this world; now the ruler of this world will be driven out. And when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself.
The world beyond Armageddon.

Job is released from the bondage of the devil and lives out a long life with more wealth and family than before his bondage to the devil. So will it be for the Restored Kingdom of Israel. Isaiah tells us that, upon slaying Leviathan, the devil, Israel prospers and produces much fruit. God tells us that He will no longer hide His face from us when Israel is restored. We will reap the blessings from heaven that God promised to Abraham. God will protect His people as in the old days of King David. There is a better world for the remnant Israel on the other side of Satan/Babylon's defeat. There will be peace on earth.

NAB2 ISA 32:11

Tremble, you who are complacent! Shudder, you who are overconfident! Strip yourselves bare, with only a loincloth to cover you. Beat your breasts for the pleasant fields, the fruitful vine, And the soil of my people, overgrown with thorns and briers; For all the joyful houses, the wanton city. Yes, the castle will be forsaken, the noisy city deserted; Down it comes, as trees come down in the forest! The city will be utterly laid low. Hill and tower will become wasteland forever for wild asses to frolic in, and flocks to pasture, Until the spirit from on high is poured out on us. Then will the desert become an orchard and the orchard be regarded as a forest. Right will dwell in the desert and justice abide in the orchard. Justice will bring about peace; right will produce calm and security. My people will live in peaceful country, in secure dwellings and quiet resting places.

NAB2 ISA 51:1

Listen to me, you who pursue justice, who seek the LORD; Look to the rock from which you were hewn, to the pit from which you were quarried; Look to Abraham, your father, and to Sarah, who gave you birth; When he was but one I called him, I blessed him and made him many. Yes, the LORD shall comfort Zion and have pity on all her ruins; Her deserts he shall make like Eden, her wasteland like the garden of the LORD; Joy and gladness shall be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of song. Be attentive to me, my people; my folk, give ear to me. For law shall go forth from my presence, and my judgment, as the light of the peoples. I will make my justice come speedily; my salvation shall go forth (and my arm shall judge the nations); In me shall the coastlands hope, and my arm they shall await.
Let us pray, "Dear Lord Jesus Christ, send us Your great Combat Angel Michael the Archangel. Let Michael be Your modern day Joshua and the one to fight at Your side and deliver us into Your 'Kingdom Come' of the Restored Kingdom of Israel, which is to be built upon mount Zion. Oh Lord Jesus Christ, take us to the Promised Land Two of Zion so that we may live in Your Kingdom! We pray Jesus' prayer to You, God our Father, Praise be Your Holy Name, and deliver us from the power of Satan. We pray that You, Lord, Deliver us soon. Amen!"

NAB3 PSA 106:47

Save us, LORD, our God; gather us from among the nations That we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in praising you. Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! Let all the people say, Amen!Hallelujah!

Chapter 107

“Give thanks to the LORD who is good, whose love endures forever!” Let that be the prayer of the LORD’S redeemed, those redeemed from the hand of the foe, Those gathered from foreign lands, from east and west, from north and south.

NAB MAT 6:9 The Lord's Prayer

"This is how you are to pray: 'Our Father in heaven hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven ...//...
Subject us not to trial but deliver us from the evil one.'

NAB2 PSA 14:7

Oh, that from Zion might come the deliverance of Israel, That Jacob may rejoice, and Israel be glad when the LORD restores his people!

NAB3 JOH 17:15

I do not ask that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from the evil one.

NAB ACT 1:6

When they had gathered together they asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” He answered them, “It is not for you to know the times or seasons that the Father has established by his own authority. But you will receive power when the holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” When he had said this, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him from their sight.
