“Supernatural Truth Session

(This document begins with a
lecture already in progress at 00:40:28.
Note: I have included time stamps to indicate where in the video various
information can be found.)
“And they gathered them together at the place which in Hebrew is called
It's a Hebrew word.
It has been interpreted to mean "har
Megiddo." "Har" means
“…make war against Him and against His army.”
So, where is this "har
Megiddo"? Megiddo is about an hour
and a half north of Jerusalem.
problem is, there is no mountain. There
is no such place as har Megiddo. There is tel Megiddo. A tel is not a
mountain. It means the “hill” of a city
that has been destroyed, rebuilt, destroyed, rebuilt, destroyed, and rebuilt
until it eventually gets higher and higher.
There is no mountain in Megiddo.
Some have described the plain of Megiddo as a place
where it can be imagined the armies of the world might gather and wage a massive
battle. However, (44:10) nations
fighting one another, nuking each other, etc. has nothing to do with
Armageddon will NOT take place in the valley of
Megiddo. It all happens right outside the
city of Jerusalem.
The Bible says there will be blood up to the horses’
bridles (Revelation 14:20). There is no
place for that to occur at Megiddo. It’s
not a confined space. It would flow out
to the sea and to all the surrounding land.
Topographically, Megiddo does not fit the place of Armageddon.
Har Megiddo” doesn’t fit linguistically:
The word Armageddon was originally spelled with one
delta [Greek d] and not two. In English,
the two “d’s” come from the Textus Receptus.
But in the Byzantine Majority Text, there is one delta. Other texts also have only one delta. Only Textus Receptus has two deltas.
Instead of Har Megiddo, Armageddon should be
understood as the three Hebrew words Arema Gei Don.
The Valley of the Judgment of the Harvested Heap
Throughout God’s revelation of the end, there is a
harvest motif: Sheaves, sickles, stomping on grapes, and etc.
Arema is a pile or a heap of
Gei is a valley, as in “valley
of the sons of Hinnom”: Gehenna. It is a
narrow, limted valley, not a wide extended plain.
Don, or judgment.
Don is identical in meaning with the word “shaphat.”
God tells us where He is going to judge the nations. He is going to gather the nations to the
valley of Jehoshaphat. The battle will be in the valley of
Jehoshaphat means Yahweh [YHWH] Judges. It’s the place where He is going to judge.
It’s right down from the Mount of Olives.
The nations will come against Jerusalem.
Micah 4:11 "Let
her be defiled and let our eye look upon Zion."
Zechariah 12:2-3  “Behold, I will
make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they
lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.  “And it shall happen in that
day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would
heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are
gathered against it.
There is an amazing trap that the Beast thinks he’s
setting for the people of Israel, but God is the one setting the trap and He’s
going to spring it. (Micah 4:12)
50:26 “Come against her from the utmost border, open her storehouses: cast her
up as heaps, and destroy her utterly: let nothing of her be left.”
16:8 “And Moses said, This shall be, when the LORD shall give you in the evening
flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for that the LORD heareth
your murmurings which ye murmur against him: and what are we? your murmurings
are not against us, but against the LORD.”
4:12 “He will gather them like sheaves to the threshing floor.”
3:1-3 “[3:1] For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall
bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,  I will also gather
all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will
plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have
scattered among the nations, and parted my land.”
12:2, 3 I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness… all the nations of the
earth are gathered against it.
the nations of the earth gather against Jerusalem, this prophecy remains
unfulfilled. When that day comes, Jesus
will come back.
3:11, 13 “Let the nations come to the valley of Jehoshaphat… put in the sickle
for the harvest is ripe… for the winepress is full, the vats overflow.”
12:9 …destroy all nations that come against Jerusalem
14:20 …the winepress was trampled outside the city
All of these things happen in or
near Jerusalem. Nothing happens at Megiddo.
3:9-12 God is ANGRY. God says,
war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come
up:  Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into
spears: let the weak say, I am strong.  Assemble yourselves, and come,
all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy
mighty ones to come down, O LORD.  Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there
will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.”
The Jews are His elect. Christians are not.
Their election does not mean they are saved. It just shows they are descendants of Abraham,
Isaac, and Jacob. A Jew still must put
his trust in the LORD, Jesus.
14:14-16 “…in His hand a sharp sickle.”
The motif of the harvest is all over this event. That is why Arema Gei Don fits so well as an explanation of Armageddon,
because it’s all about the harvest at the end of the age.
The Mount of Olives is right above the valley of
Jehoshaphat. Jesus’ feet will stand on
the Mount of Olives when He returns.
Revelation 14:18, 20 indicates there will be blood
up to the horses’ bridles for 1600 furlongs (in this valley). This is a topographical location where it
makes a lot more sense.
Isaiah 63:2-3 “ Wherefore
art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat?  I have trodden the winepress alone;
and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine
anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my
garments, and I will stain all my raiment.”
is going to get into the fray.
the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their
armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the
34:3-5 “ Their
slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their
blood.  And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens
shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off
from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.  For
my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.”
This is not allegorical. It’s really going to happen.
Micah 4:11, 12 The trap that
the nations set for Israel, God will turn upon them. He will “gather them like
sheaves to the threshing floor.”
“ Now also many nations are gathered
against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let
our eye look upon Zion.  But they know not the thoughts of the LORD,
neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves
into the floor.”
“ Whose fan is in his hand, and he
will thoroughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but
the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.”
14:1-2 “…For I
will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem…”
“[14:1] Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and
thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.  For I will gather all
nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the
houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into
captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.”
Two thirds of the Israelites in Jerusalem will be
killed (Zechariah 13), one third will be captured until after the time of
Jacob’s trouble they will accept the one they have rejected. If the population is then like it is today in
Jerusalem, there will be 100,000 people left in Jerusalem.
Jesus will not help them until they acknowledge
23:39 “ For I say
unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he
that cometh in the name of the Lord.”
13:35 “ Behold, your
house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto
you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed
is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.”
5:15 “ I will go and return to
my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek
my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.”
It will take the time of Jacob’s Trouble for them to
see their offence. Then they are going
to realize the one they have rejected.
“ In that day will I make the governors of
Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like
a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about,
on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in
her own place, even in Jerusalem.”
In that day (the day Jesus comes back)… (the
governors of Judah) shall devour the surrounding peoples.
12 There will be great mourning. They are going to be totally devastated. There will be no consoling them. It is not “all right.”
On the third day, He will raise us up
“ Come, and let us
return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten,
and he will bind us up.  After two days will he revive us: in the third
day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.  Then shall we
know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as
the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former
rain unto the earth.”
Once they realize Jesus is their king, on the third
day after great mourning, they will be raised up. They will go down to the valley of
Jehoshaphat because they will remember Zechariah 14, that His feet will touch
down on the Mount of Olives:
[14:1] Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and
thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the
city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of
the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not
be cut off from the city.  Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight
against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
 And his feet shall stand in that day upon
the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount
of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the
west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain
shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
And they will wait for Him to return.
All the while, the Anti-Christ [Nimrod, Apollo,
Apollyon…] is still out and about. His
forces are out looking for Jews to kill.
Satan is not out to defeat God by overpowering Him,
he is out to get a tie on a “legality.” It’s never been a battle of force, it has always been a battle of “legality.”’
If he can contradict one of God’s necessary
conditions (eliminate the Jews, corrupt the blood line, etc.) he believes he
will win. Satan believes it will be a “tie”
if he can kill every last Jew on the planet. That would contradict Daniel 7:18.
“ But the saints of the most
High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for
ever and ever.”
The nations will come upon the remaining Jews and Jesus
will give them the supernatural ability to shoot out fire.
12:8 “…like the Angel of the LORD before them.”
3:4 “He had rays flashing from his hand…”
God is indeed a “man of war”. He is a God of fire.
be devastated. Then from the “residue,”
God will fight the nations. Just like
with Pharaoh going after the fleeing Israelites, God likes to make His enemies
think they’ve won.
Zechariah 4:3 “Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight
against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.”
Zechariah 14:4-5 The Mount of Olives will split
asunder from east to west when His feet touch it. Then they will flee through His mountain
“ In that day His feet will stand on the
Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of
Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so
that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward
the south.  You will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley
of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will
flee just as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of
Judah. Then the LORD, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him!
When Jesus’ feet touch the Mount of Olives, isn’t
that the end of the story? No. Like the Red Sea crossing (Exodus 14:3), the
Israelites flee through the valley.
Their enemies will follow. Jesus interposes between. He will gather them like sheaves on the
is as bright as lightning;
a two-pronged lightning bolt flashes from his hand.
This is the outward display of his power.
Plague goes before him;
pestilence 1marches right behind him.”
“On that day there will be great confusion from the
LORD among them; they will seize each other and attack one another violently.”
They try to run, but they run into the men behind
them and begin to fight them in order to flee.
Zechariah 12:4 Blindness. Jesus is bright. There is mass confusion.
Zechariah 14:12 Their flesh shall dissolve… just by
being in the presence of Jesus.
This is not a nuclear blast or a neutron bomb. This is the presence of our LORD. They don’t have celestial bodies to be in the
presence of our LORD and they literally begin to melt.
He begins slicing and dicing. Their blood splatters everywhere. He then
begins to advance upon them begins to trample them like grapes
is Your apparel red, And Your garments like the one who treads in the wine
press?  “I have trodden the wine trough alone, And
from the peoples there was no man with Me. I also trod them in My anger And trampled them in My wrath; And their lifeblood is
sprinkled on My garments, And I stained all My raiment.  “For the day
of vengeance was in My heart, And My year of redemption has come.”

supper of the great God. Migratory birds
