Chapter 7

Antichrist’s Army 200 Million

      One of the Revelation Plagues is the plague of the 200 million men army, which some expositors believer are a demonic army.

Revelation 9:13-18 records:

     Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

     Saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.”

     So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.

      Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them.

     And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone.

     By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed—by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths.

I do not hold that this is a demonic force but rather spiritual forces behind an actual army.

China’s Army?

Years ago in Hal Lindsey’s Book the Late Great Planet Earth he identified the army in Revelation 9: 15-19 as China’s  because China’s population was so big their army numbered 200 million, and no other army in the world was that large.  But, China makes no sense because we see China entering at the end at Armageddon in Revelation 16: 12 tells us:

     Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.

China also is also an illogical assumption that they should attack during the Tribulation because the Beast,  the Final World Empire is going to be so powerful that it would be irrational for the Chinese to come out of nowhere and invade  the world when the Antichrist has  such a firm grip.  What does make sense is for China along with Russia and the nations around the world to

come against the Antichrist when he is in Jerusalem at the battle of Armageddon to defeat him. At this time he will need to be defeated. Remember he raises the EU to its pinnacle of power, and nations trade with his empire and there are good relations.

It is at midway through the Tribulation when the Antichrist steps into the holy of holies and declares himself as god that the Great Tribulation begins.  He then institutes the Mark of the Beast,   which he will have power to do because at that time, his empire will hold the world’s reserve currency and will have the leading say in world institutions and will be the strongest economically and politically and militarily. The world will have to go along with his policies to benefit financially, remember all the nations are now connected economically.

Once the Great Tribulation begins, and he goes forth to conquer with extreme fury to conquer,  he will gain control over countries in the Middle East. We know the Antichrist will control the Middle East region, and some of this area will be won during this conquest.  Egypt will come into his hands during this time. When the Antichrist sets himself up in the holy of holy’s as god and seeks to annihilate the Jews and all religion upon the face of the Earth, this might be the reason for the nations around the world to decide to come against him at the battle of Armageddon.

The EU Army

So who is the army in Revelation 9? It is the army of the beast.  In the four horsemen of Revelation 6, we are shown that the four horsemen and the first horse is the prince on a white horse who goes forth to conquer.  Revelation tells us their heads are like the heads of lions. The Beast  has a mouth like a lion and Scripture tells us this in several places. Thus their heads are similar to the Antichrist’s because they are an extension of him.

The colors' hyacinth blue and sulfa read are the colors of the EU military flag.   There is also red in the breastplate  and the Hebrew word for red is pyrinos and it means shining like fire. brimstone sulfurous, Jacinth. This army glistens because of its power.

The smoke, fire and brimstone with power and the mouth and tails sounds like artillery. When a gun shoots we see fire and smoke. What is worth noting that while the three elements are related, in the Bible they are referred to as three separate plagues, Rev. 9:18 By these three plagues was a third of mankind killed-by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths.  This next verse sound like a belt-fed  rifle or machine gun it reads, “For their power is in their mouth and in their tails, for their tails are like serpents, having heads; and with them, they do harm.

  4 Horsemen Vs. 200 Million Army  

In Revelation 9 we see that the Antichrist’s army is 200 million men and is one of the plagues of God. The four angels accompany this militia and lend it their strength. One-third of the world’s population is killed by this army.  When we go back to the four horsemen of the Revelation, we see that war is also part of that campaign, but one fourth of the population is killed by the sword, famine and beasts of the Earth.  In that battle nations rise against nation.  This one is different and separate.

We do not know the exact reason for it, but we do know that Daniel describes the Beast as dreadful and terrible with great iron teeth and  crushing power.  This army goes forth and kills one third of the Earth’s population. It could be the Antichrist’s campaign for annihilation against those who do not take his mark and who are Christians, Jews or believe in one of the world’s religions.

Population of EU Empire

The EU has 508 million citizens, during the Tribulation we know that some of the Middle East countries will be in its sphere of influence including Israel. We also do not know how much of Africa or India he might also invade. The EU population will be greater than it is today and can possibly produce  armed forces of 200 million men.

EU Army Today

Today the EU has the world’s largest standing army when you take the military of each of the member countries and add them together. While the EU does not officially have a military, the provision for one was laid out in the Lisbon treaty.  EU leaders have already proposed giving the EU a full defense arm.

The horsemen of 200 million can be the number of heavenly horses that are released and do not correspond with the number of the army, but my hunch is that they do.   Right now, the European union Military staff exists and when you add all of their forces together you come up with about 5 million men. This is personnel age 17-45, active, reserve and paramilitary. This shows us how big the EU Empire will become. During the time of Antichrist’s conquest he will also enlist more than just age 17-45 volunteers, it will be mandatory to serve as under other dictators.

One can only imagine the fear, and dread caused as the EU military enters countries and towns and exterminates all who do not follow him.
