The Final Battle of Har-Magedon

Leap of Faith: Daily Lessons About Jesus Christ

Chapter: Har-Magedon (Pages 375-376)

When we consider the battle of Har-Magedon, we ought to be mindful of where we stand. The battle of Har- Magedon consists of those who are fighting for the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. Do you know where you stand? If there are two armies, what colors will the people of God use to represent themselves…Colors all hold different symbolic power. For example the colors red and black symbolize the death and suffering of Jesus. God will also use these colors to symbolize his power and wrath upon those who have rejected the Truth of His Son. The colors Blue, Purple, and White are all symbolic of Angels…God’s Angels who have been clothed with beauty and power…The truth is that God and His Son are the only ones who should be using the powers of the colors of the resurrection and death of His Son…The reason that God does not particularly like these colors is due to having witnessed so much death and suffering in a corrupted and fallen world…Be smart and be bright…Allow Jesus and the Angels with Him (Who have power of light and power of darkness) to take care of the work that must be done in order for God to do away with the evil…

Once again I want to reiterate the significance of the colors red and black. These colors have been abused for ages since the beginning of the Communist Revolution in Cuba by Fidel Castro and in Nazi Germany under the reign of Adolf Hitler. This is not to be taken lightly in my eyes. For those that have caused the bloodshed of innocent people and Christians, you are at the Mercy of God…He is the Final Judge… If you represent a movement of radical control against people, you will be judged accordingly. If you abuse power, especially of darkness, God will have you answer for your actions…God has been very patient and has asked people to seek Him first before all things. God has only asked that we honor His commandments. God allows for free will. Yet, He sees all.

When we consider the Muslim brotherhood, we should know that this is the revolution that is currently attempting to control the world. The Muslim brotherhood is one that is worldwide, and all that have chosen to sell out (Money, Money, Money…the number of a man…) and take the easy road in order to reap the benefits will face judgment. Let me remind you of this point: there is a real heaven and a real hell. Pay attention to flags and idolatry. Pay attention to the details. See the war for what it is. Do not live in the dark. You make sure that you are fighting on the correct side along with the army of Christ and God. These are the ones who will have right to the Tree of Life and to the Holy City (God’s Hidden Temple), which are written in the book of Revelation.

As we consider the symbolic nature of numbers let us be fully aware of their meanings…

Beginning with the number 6, which symbolizes human weakness, the evils of Satan and manifestation of sin. Man was created on the sixth day…The bringing together of three 6’s  (36,63,666) is the number and mark of the beast. It has been the only possible solution of controlling mankind, that man could produce on its own, WITHOUT God. The system of governance. The system on the earth has been made up of three significant parts (economic, religious, and governmental) all of which have been influenced and led by Satan. 

The number 3 is symbolic number of the Holy Trinity: The Father, the Son, and The Holy Spirit. It symbolizes completeness with finding God in your life and being transformed.

The Number 7 is symbolic of the foundation of God’s Word. It also symbolizes perfection and completion or finality. It directly reflects God’s creation and can also be recognized with the Seven Spirits of God. Look through the Book of Revelation…

The Number 8 can be recognized as a symbol of infinity and Eternity with God. It is a symbol of rebirth and the resurrection of the dead. It also demonstrates a higher sense of awareness, communication, and perception of all things according to God…Remember in Greek the numbers 888 are the code for the name of Jesus…

The Number 9 can be recognized in various ways, but most importantly it symbolizes the ending and conclusion…Even if used to reprsent evil, God is putting an end to it…That is how you may understsand it and interpret it…You no longer give any power to the evil numbers or numbers that draw you to question them…You stand by the numbers that God uses throughout His Word…He has given you the keys…The 9 fruits of the Spirit overcome any evil association to the number…

Galatians 5:22-23

“But the Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering (patience), gentlness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance; against such there is No law…”

The Number 12 can be considered perfect. It is the number by which God symbolizes his absolute Power and Authority. It symbolizes the 12 tribes of Israel, 12 Pearl Gates by which we are able to enter Heaven, the 12 Angels of God, and 12 apostles or disciples…Christ’s Bride, specifically wears a crown containing Twelve Stars…There is much to be discovered in this number pertaining to the End of the World…

There are some other numbers that I could also reference, such as 5 and 10…But, these numbers in particular have held many different values that have been abused and confused many in the world…This was due to the number of the beast or three 6’s…

I can tell you that the number 5 has been mentioned to reference the Stigmata of Jesus or the Crucifixion, but the wounds of Jesus were Far beyond 5…

And in regards to the number 10…The Ten Commandments sent by God to Moses are of the Utmost Importance…But, aware of the association between the beast in Revelation 13:1 that has 7 heads and 10 horns…you may incorporate the three 6’s with this beast…The Lamb of God has been battling this beast and just as God told you, His Son overcomes all of the adversity of Satan

Chapter: Stigmata (Pages 73-74)

Stigmata are bodily marks, sores, or sensations of pain in locations corresponding to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus Christ, such as the hands and feet.

Galatians 6:17 (kjv) says, “From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear on my body the marks of the Lord Je’-sus.”

Stigmata is the plural of the Greek word stigma, meaning a mark or brand such as might have been used for identification of an animal or slave. An individual is referred to as a stigmatic or a stigmatist.

Stigmatas are primarily associated with the Roman Catholic faith.

Many stigmatists show some or all of the wounds, which were inflicted on Jesus during the crucifixion. Some stigmatics display wounds to the forehead similar to those caused by the crown of thorns. Many stigmatics experienced cruel rejection and suspicion before their wounds were authenticated.

Christian theologian Ivan Illich states, “Compassion with Christ…is faith so strong and so deeply incarnate that it leads to the individual embodiment of the contemplated pain” (Wikipedia.org). His thesis is that stigmatas result from exceptional poignancy of religious faith and desire to associate oneself with the suffering Messiah.

 Luke 22:44 (kjv) says, “And being in agony He prayed more earnestly: and His sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.”

This is another form of stigmata.

Some modern research has indicated stigmatas are of hysterical origin or linked to dissociative identity disorders, especially the link between dietary constriction by self-starvation, dissociative mental states, and self-mutilation in the context of a religious belief.

No one would ever wish these marks upon themselves. However, I do understand that people who have strong faith wish to represent God in every way possible, using their bodies as a living sacrifice or canvas. But, God did not ask this of you…His Son has already made that sacrifice for us. Remember that the blood of the Lamb has overcome the world…That will help you to make sense of what has been taking place…

When we consider the stigma from long ago during the slave trade, we see that the symbol of a cross was often used. In the case of the David Livingstone era, we see that many slaves were branded as a form of persecution and punishment. The third Greek letter, stigma, has a form that is also a symbol of something or someone connected to the Islamic religion. As stated earlier, the stigma is not a letter in Modern Greek, but it is a letter that was a brand placed on slaves. The word stigma means a mark made by a brand as burnt upon slaves, cattle, or soldiers by their owners and masters; or on devotees who thus branded themselves as belonging to their gods.

Take a look back at the ancient history and design of the David Livingstone church. Look at all the detail of the designs in the church. Reflect on the book of Revelation chapter 21.

Let us go back and really analyze the symbol of the red cross. Was it used as a symbol of Christianity or Islamic persecution? Let us make sure that we get it right. Look at the history.

First Corinthians 1:22-24 (nasb) says, “For indeed Jews ask for signs, and Greeks search for wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block, and to Gentiles foolishness, but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.”

 

Note: You have been given a choice to represent the number of your choice…You change what is wrong and make it clear to God what you represent or you will be consumed by the  Power of God…This is what we may understand to be the FINAL judgment and the battle of Har-Magedon…

 

Revelation 16:15-16 says, “Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his garments, lest he walk about naked and men see his shame. And they gathered them together to the place, which in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon.”
