Summary: Today I want to bring a few thoughts to do with the Battle that we read about in Ezekiel 38: and 39:, when will it happen?
# 4~ EZK.38:~39: STILL TO COME 7-13-13
Today we'll continue talking about things that are still to come on God's Prophetic Calendar.
We have already pointed out; the next thing that's to occur on His prophetic calendar is the RAPTURE OF HIS TRUE CHURCH.
#1~ THE RAPTURE of the Church~
#2~ THE JUDGMENT of the saints, that is, the Redeemed that were raptured, there we will be judged for what we did for Jesus after we were saved and rewarded accordingly.

>1And I saw when the Lamb * opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
2And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; (notice, no arrows, pictures a peace maker) and a crown was given unto him: (notice, he had done nothing to deserve the crown, it was given to him, he was chosen as their leader) and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. -- With the promise of peace, it is the big lie the world is going to believe. -- The people will say;
>Rev.13: 4 --- Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
~ The first 3 ½ years of the tribulation is the period of the promise of peace and safety made by the Antichrist to Israel, Israel will think at last they have peace from their enemies, mainly the Muslims.
~ I believe this man will be a political leader from some where in the Revived Roman Empire, he could possibly be a
