"And 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 unto the supper of the great God.(Revelation 19:17)
"Angel standing in the Sun" This reference is to the aftermath of The Apocalyptic Battle know as Armageddon! All the nations of the earth will be there, marching on Israel. "And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them."(Revelation 9:16). The nations of the world will be coming from all directions because greed has drawn them to Jerusalem, by this time the Antichrist is sitting on the Throne of David, controlling the wealth of the World. The first problem is that the Man of Sin has all the money and he has decided not to share with his thieving friends. He has put the Mark of the Beast on all that remain or killed any that wouldn't accept it, so he's wealthy and the rest of the nations are starving. "And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:(Revelation 14:9-10) In Revelation chapter 6, the seals have been opened and one of them was, money for food, the 3rd seal-The Black Horse Rider!! "And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine."(Revelation 6:6). So, the Devil is true to his nature and wants all the money.
"But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many."(Daniel 11:43-44). The person referenced in these verses is the antichrist, he has deceived Israel and everyone else on the planet by this time in prophetic events. Revelation 19:17 says that the "fowls that fly" will eat the carcass of the wicked dead that are defeated by Jesus and His armies from Heaven. The "Angel standing in the Sun" calls the birds of prey to "the supper of the Great God". There will be no need for a recount to see who won because the efforts of the wicked will be futile. If you do not know Jesus, please call on Him today. Today is the Day of Salvation, for the night cometh. It is very evident that God's children will win and enter into the everlasting joy of The Lord!!!! Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. (Psalms 122:6 KJV)
