The birds of the air will eat the flesh of Jesus’ enemies

The Bible tells us that in the end times God will give the kingdoms of the Earth to His Son Jesus Christ. The armies of men will foolishly try to fight Him in battle. This will happen twice; once at the battle of Armageddon when Jesus comes to receive His earthly kingdom (Revelation 19:11-21), and at the battle of Gog and Magog a thousand years later (Revelation 20:7-10). They will ofcourse be horribly defeated. The Apostle John describes what will happen to their physical bodies:

And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair,“Come, gather together for the great supper of God, 18 so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and the mighty, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, great and small.” (Revelation 19:17-18 NIV)

This scene of carnage is the culmination of the arrogance of men who try to create their own kingdoms on Earth for the purpose of serving their own interests and selfish lusts. They think that they can thwart God’s plan to give the Earth to His anointed one:

Why do the nations conspire[a]
and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth rise up
and the rulers band together
against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
“Let us break their chains
and throw off their shackles.” (Psalm 2:1-3)

Of course God is not intimidated by their vain gesture. Nothing that they can attempt will defeat God’s plan to install His chosen king, a Jewish king, descendant of David, as king over the world from Jerusalem:

The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord scoffs at them.
He rebukes them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
“I have installed my king
on Zion, my holy mountain.” (Psalm 2:4-6)

For any ruler of this Earth that wants to live and not be eternally destroyed by God, there is only one option. Submit to God, and to His Son, Jesus Christ:

Therefore, you kings, be wise;
be warned, you rulers of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear
and celebrate his rule with trembling.
12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry
and your way will lead to your destruction,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him. (Psalm 2:10-12)

Have you taken refuge in God and made peace with His Son? If not, you had better do so now, before the wrath of God flares up against you for the deliberate sins that you have committed against Him and against those around you.
