Revelation 19:17-21

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, "Come and gather yourselves together to the supper of the great God;

 18 That you may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great."2

 19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him who sat on the horse, and against his army.3 [This occurred in the early Church of the Apostles and shortly afterward; see the ten persecutions. During the time of the early Quakers, every Protestant sect and the Roman Catholics all jointly and massively persecuted the Quakers. Christendom's armies of billions, led by the false prophets and commanded by the devil, stand ready to persecute again the saints of Jesus, wherever they appear in His Spirit, as they denounce Christendom to be the Whore of Babylon.]

 20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet who produced miracles before him, with which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.

 21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him who sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth; and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

3 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him who sat on the horse, [the Lamb] and against his army. The beast and the kings of the earth don't make war with Christ; he has ascended into the heavens far above all principalities and powers. But they do make war with the Lamb, who is in, and rules in, his saints; they make war with the Lamb by warring against him in his saints. But the Lamb overcomes them; the Lamb's power reigns in his saints, and when the Lamb wills to destroy the evil, beastly religion of the earth, he will overcome the beast, the kings, and their armies — his saints have the victory.

This occurred in the early Church of the Apostles and shortly afterward; see the ten persecutions. During the time of the early Quakers, every Protestant sect, (including Episcopal, Presbyterian, Baptist, Congregationalist, Puritan, etc.) and the Roman Catholics all jointly and massively persecuted the Quakers; the Christian sects were the devil's armies, and the kings of the earth were the officials of the churches and states who together persecuted the Quakers, killing a thousand in prisons, imprisoning tens of thousands, seizing the property of tens of thousands, and sending two hundred of the Quakers to slavery. The Puritans even hung three Quaker men and one Quaker woman in Boston, calling them blasphemous witches. Just as Jesus was killed by religious people, Jesus told his true disciples they would also be killed by religious people:

Yes, the time is coming when whoever kills you will think that he is doing a service to God. John 16:2.

Today, Christendom's armies of billions, led by the false prophets and commanded by the devil, stand ready to persecute again the saints of Jesus, wherever they appear in His Spirit, as they denounce Christendom to be the Whore of Babylon.
