It will be a time when these nations will find themselves at war with God Ezekiel 38:18. "And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face."

From Bible history we know of the mechanisms available to ensure that the Lord's will is done. Sodom & Gomorrah were consumed in fire and brimstone which we assume to be a volcanic eruption. Jericho's walls were brought down by earthquake. And confusion among the Moabite and Ammonite soldiers caused them to fight each other 2 Chronicles 20:23. The disastrous attempt at crossing the Red Sea by Egyptian charioteers in pursuit of the Children of Israel Exodus 14:24-28 was perhaps influenced by a change of wind releasing pent up waters in the manner of a cyclone storm surge. Hailstones had already been used against Pharaoh and later they would be used to destroy much of the Amorite army, Joshua 10:11-14.

Certainly there have many examples over the millennia where weather events have dramatically influenced human conflict no doubt with divine influence. The escape of British troops from the Dunkirk beaches was assisted by remarkably calm seas while the Luftwaffe was frustrated by poor visibility. The Spanish Armada was likewise destroyed by severe weather conditions. When it has suited the Lord's purpose mankind has been destroyed in large numbers in a matter of hours. We have the example of the firstborn in Egypt and also the Assyrian Army in 2 Kings 19:35 where 185,000 soldiers died overnight.

These cases both involved direct rebellion or insult against the Lord. We can look at the present times of cyclone, floods, tsunamis, disease, locusts, and earthquakes and wonder whether God's hand is at work today. When this has suited the Lord's purpose mankind has been destroyed in large numbers in a matter of hours. We have the example of the firstborn in Egypt and also the Assyrian Army in 2 Kings 19:35 where 185,000 soldiers died overnight. We have abundant evidence of God's power but we have the confidence of knowing that Armageddon is an event that will ultimately will bring peace between the nations and the rule of the Lord Jesus Christ from Jerusalem.
