Today’s reading of the last chapter of the prophet Zechariah starts with, “Behold a day is coming …” and our reading in Revelation contains the only verse in the Bible with the word ARMAGEDDON.     False spirits (attitudes?)  “ … go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God Almighty. Behold I am coming like a thief!  Blessed is the one who stays awake … and they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon” [Ch.16 v.14-16]

That word “Armageddon” has cropped up in our Newspapers quite a lot, sometimes in relation to climate change and the potential for more fearsome, indeed awesome weather events.  It was used in relation to the world-wide financial crisis 8 years ago, which is still far from solved. AAP reported some years ago,  ”In a new record, Australians now owe more in household debt that the country’s entire economy earns in a year”

The world’s economy has been revved up to work on massive spending – continuously.  This is the NOW generation, ‘we must have it NOW.’  The crisis has been “solved” by Governments throwing a heap of largely borrowed money at the problem.  Of course, money is no longer gold and silver, which was its foundation, even 100 years ago.  It is fascinating to see the sense in which money is the “beast” – which people worship. We note that a replica (image) of this beast arises and this chapter which tells how harmful and painful sores (symbol of what?) came upon those who bore the mark of the beast and worshipped its image.” [16 v.2]

Zechariah’s chapter also describes Armageddon without using the word!   “Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations … the mount of Olives shall be split in two” [12 v.3,4]  A world shaking earthquake occurs, see Rev 16 v.18; “a great earthquake such as there has never been since man was on earth” – and the “day” will have come!

But then, says Zechariah, “the LORD will be King over all the earth … then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship in King, the LORD of Hosts …” [v.9,16]. We have read almost the same in Revelation, “Who will not fear O Lord and glorify your name? For you alone are holy.  All nations will come and worship you for your righteous acts have been revealed.” [15 v.4]

Blessed are those who are awake and ready for what God will cause to happen. {see 16 v.15]
