Battle of Armageddon Joins
shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is
Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and
chosen, and faithful. Rev. 17:14.
We need to study the pouring out of the seventh vial. The powers of evil will
not yield up the conflict without a struggle. But Providence has a part to
act in the battle of Armageddon. When the earth is lighted with the glory
of the angel of Revelation eighteen, the religious elements, good and evil,
will awake from slumber, and the armies of the living God will take the field.
angels hold back the powers of this earth till the servants of God are sealed
in their foreheads. The nations of the world are eager for conflict; but they
are held in check by the angels. When this restraining power is removed, there
will come a time of trouble and anguish. Deadly instruments of warfare will
be invented. Vessels, with their living cargo, will be entombed in the great

desperate struggle. All the world will be on one side or the other of the
question. The battle of Armageddon will be fought, and that day must find
none of us sleeping. Wide awake we must be, as wise virgins having oil in
our vessels with our lamps. . . .
of the Holy Ghost must be upon us, and the Captain of the Lord's host will
stand at the head of the angels of heaven to direct the battle. Solemn events
before us are yet to transpire. Trumpet after trumpet is to be sounded, vial
after vial poured out one after another upon the inhabitants of the earth.
Scenes of stupendous interest are right upon us.
