War to End War

 

Presented by Pastor Randy Capote

Historians know the catchphrase, "The war to end all wars" is associated with World War I, and many attribute the quote to Woodrow Wilson, yet he only used a variation of the quote one time in a speech. The line is actually traced back to a British author named H. G. Wells, who wrote several articles for a London newspaper on the war in 1914, and he later assembled the articles into a book he entitled, "War to End War".  Nevertheless, the expression stuck and many people truly thought this would be the war to end all wars. Obviously, that is not the case. So I talked about the real "War to End War" in my sermon of Sunday past from Revelation 19:17-21. Join us as we look at current events in the light of Scripture

(17) Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds which fly in midheaven, “Come, assemble for the great supper of God, (18) so that you may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of commanders and the flesh of mighty men and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them and the flesh of all men, both free men and slaves, and small and great. (19) And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. (20) And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. (21) And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh.
