...the battle of Armageddon was an actual military battle that was fought in 1479 b.c.
The book of Revelation should be the FIRST book of the N.T., not the last (It is the INTRODUCTION to the NEW testament)...A NEW BEGINNING
(for as yet the spirit had not been GIVEN---John)........ In the O.T. there was no ETERNAL spirit (spirit of God).
....the book simply announced A NEW BEGINNING (the lion of Judah became our LAMB of God.....the lion laid down with the lamb).....do you have a white stone? Rev. 2:17
'''WAS THE SUPERTSITION FOLKLORE/ANECDOTE of an end time disaster copied from the war of the sons of light against the sons of darkness?
So who exactly is LUCIFER?.....is time on his side because deterioration is a natural result of TIME?
In "THE FALLEN" movie, AZAZEL from the garden of eden (JEWISH demon? like LILITH and KABALAH).

The following website talks about various DISPENSATIONS,,,
The NEW AGE/DISPENSATION (AGE OF ETERNITY) is NEW because we (humanity) have finally been given God's spirit to be our teacher of peace and civility (civilized behavior, peace, and decency are what we call "righteousness").
