Under whose influence are the nations to be assembled?


"And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of
the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles,
which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great
day of God Almighty." Rev. 16: 13,14.
NOTE - Infatuated by the doctrine of the world's conversion and a temporal millennium of peace,
prosperity, and good will among men, the deluded nations will aim to make Jerusalem the centre of a
glorious kingdom, at which place they will doubtless expect Christ will come and take up His reign as their
king. This was the favorite idea of the crusaders in the Dark Ages. But the crusaders were mistaken in their
conception, and sorely disappointed. So also will the modern crusaders be mistaken and disappointed; for
one object of Christ's second coming will be to "smite the nations" and to destroy these armies assembled.
Rev. 19: 15.
