You Will See Is. 60:1-11 CLICK TITLE FOR AUDIO
When Jesus returns and after the barrel of Armageddon, you will see the most remarkable transformation in the earth. The change will be as drastic as the difference between night and day. What looked like the utter annihilation of the Jews on one day will turn out to be the foundation for them to become the world’s greatest nation on the next day. Instantly, when the Lord sets up his throne, things change.
Just before the Lord begins his 1,000 year reign, you will see darkness, nations gathered around Jerusalem to destroy her, Jews carried away and scattered into nations, Gentiles opposed to the Jews’ religion and their God, the country ravaged and the wealth carried away as spoil, the land so desolate that flocks can’t survive, the walls and gates of Jerusalem broken down, and kings coming to them with their forces to destroy them.
Immediately after Jesus takes the throne, you will see:
