Reports from the north and the east will so terrify Antichrist that he will retreat from the south where he plundered the Egyptians, Libyans, and Ethiopians (Africa). Antichrist will then begin a death-and-destruction march toward the north and east with “great fury,” a burning rage to “destroy,” exterminate and annihilate. Antichrist will “utterly make away many,” charam:utterly destroy ritually. Antichrist will establish his tabernacles/encampment and his royal pavilion tent, his palace-tent, between the sea (Mediterranean) and the “glorious holy mountain,” Mount Hermon of the Baalim assembly of the gods, and Satan’s holy mountain.

At this time, the Philistines will be punished for the same “three and four reasons” as Moab, Ammon, and Edom were utterly destroyed. The Philistines appear to be part of those whom Antichrist will “make away with many.” One might conclude Edom in the south, Ammon, and Moab might be part of Antichrist’s last romp of fury, but it seems more likely that Jesus will execute judgment on Israel’s kin nations as He moves north to Mount Hermon on the east of the Jordan River, through Ammon and Moab, and as indicated by the Isaiah 63:1–4 prophecy stating that Jesus will begin treading the winepress in Edom. In this line of thinking, Antichrist will march up the Mediterranean coast through Gaza and then Tyre, destroying each  on his way to his holy mountain, Sion. Thus, Jesus will complete the judgment of the Syrian Edomites and Moabites just before the Armageddon battle. Knowing this elucidates that the Syrian/Edomite destruction and the Moabite destruction was included among the destruction of the Terrible Ones on the mountain, likely Hermon.

Isa 25:5 Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the Terrible Ones shall be brought low.

Isa 25:6 And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.

Isa 25:7 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.

Isa 25:10 For in this mountain shall the hand of the Lord rest, and Moab shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.
