14 “Neither one,” He replied. “I am The Commander Of The Lord’s Army.” At this, Joshua fell with his face to the ground in reverence. “I am at your command,” Joshua said. “What do you want your servant to do?”
15 The Commander Of The Lord’s Army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did as he was told.
Our Lord, is The Prince Of Peace, but because of sin, He is also The Commander Of The Lord's Army.
Because of sin, there must of necessity be judgment, and where judgment, enforcement.

Now in heaven, there is one called “The accuser of the brethren.” Let it be of no wonder who this is, for it is Satan.

1 And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before The Angel Of The Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.
2 And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan..."
As Satan sees all the preparation for The Marriage Supper Of The Lamb, in heaven, and its nearing completion, he will do all he can to impede or stop what comes next...and what comes next is “the rapture of Christ's bride the church.” ( I Corinthians 15:51-58/ I Thessalonians 4:13-18 KJV)
Revelation 19:7-9 KJV
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to Him: for The Marriage Of The Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready.
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto
The Marriage Supper Of The Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
Before The Lord's bride can be called home, Satan and his angels must be cast out.
War in heaven, yes!
This accuser of the brethren, is about to be cast out.
Revelation 12:7-12 KJV
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Heaven cleansed, before the arrival of the bride, and the celebration of The Marriage Supper Of The Lamb.
Revelation 21:10,11,27 KJV
10 And he carried me away in The Spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in
The Lamb's Book Of Life.
Satan, has a man, he has chosen and prepared here on earth, to receive his spirit, the moment he is cast out of heaven. The man prepared and waiting for the spirit of Satan, is a man who will become the Anti-Christ.
For the rapture of the church to be possible at any moment...that man must already exist here on earth and be well known by all.
