wrote a note on Revelation 20:8 KJV

The battle of Gog and Magog takes place after the millennium. The only other time Gog and Magog are mentioned is in Ezekiel 38 and 39. So, the Gog and Magog events in Ezekiel are being fulfilled here in Revelation 20, after the millennium. Expand

wrote a note on Revelation 20:4 KJV

The next verse says, "This is the first resurrection." This verse says that they "which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads..." are a part of this resurrection. Therefore, the FIRST resurrection (rapture) must take place AFTER the mark of the beast, which happens during the tribulation. (This is contrary to the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine.) However, the first resurrection does take place before the wrath of the trumpet and vial judgements. So, it takes place AFTER the tribulation but BEFORE the wrath. Expand

See 2 Timothy 2:16-18 about two people who taught that the first resurrection had already happened: "But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some."

wrote a note on 1 Corinthians 15:23 KJV

Christ was resurrected a few days after his crucifixion. Then, there are two other resurrections with an order in people being resurrected. First, they that are Christ's at his coming followed by we which are alive and remain. Second, at the end of the millennium, Christians who are born/saved after the rapture. Expand

Only the armies of the earth are gathered to make war against Christ, not every person on the planet. Only the armies are defeated at Armageddon. There are plenty of people the world over who survive this day and go into the millennium. Expand

They seem more concerned that they can no longer sell their stuff than that Babylon has been utterly destroyed. No mention that it's too bad for all those people.

In the end times, the United States is Babylon. This might be describing the destruction of the United States by means of ICBMs coming over the north pole, which is the route they would take to get here. Revelation 18 describes the destruction of Babylon, by fire, in one hour. Expand
