19:19And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies, assembled to make war against Him who sat upon the horse, and against His army.

And I saw

  1. THE BEAST and
  2. the KINGS of the earth and their ARMIES,

All that is left on the earth are evil-controlled elements and their leader, THE BEAST (Revelation 13:1-8 and Revelation 17:11-13). As we found out earlier, the KINGS simply are the evil power base of THE BEAST. They are his horns (Revelation 17:12). We could think of these KINGS as being evil in specific areas. It is left to the reader to determine the evil opposite of each of the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1-17), for example. How many of these evil elements are covered in Revelation 21:8?

This is prophesied in Daniel 11:29-45, and as the last verse in Daniel says, "and no one will help him".


Since chapter 19 has been primarily the spiritual part of the redemption of the earth, then what we are seeing here is the spiritual part of the battle of Armageddon. We saw the physical part in Revelation 16:12-16.

Note that THE BEAST has to have ARMIES, while the Lord only has an ARMY. And even with ARMIES, the Lord single-handedly kills the ARMIES with the sword (THE TRUTH) in His mouth (Revelation 19:21). If we are chosen to serve in the Lord's ARMY for this campaign, then we won't have to fight but just witness the defeat of evil,
