THINK ON THIS !! I agree with Pastor Gables that the figurative interpretation (re: Battle of Armageddon) makes more sense than the literal. God never intended that every prophecy of the Scripture be interpreted literally. For example, Isaiah 40:3-5 prophesied, "The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it." This passage is quoted in Luke 3:4-6 and applied to the ministry of John the Baptist. It is a fulfilled prophecy, but was it fulfilled literally? Did John literally prepare a highway for Christ to walk upon during His ministry? Did he literally lower every hill and raise every valley in order to make a smooth, straight road for our Lord? Of course not! Yet, if we are going to demand that prophecy be literally interpreted, this is what the ministry of John would have demanded.
