The Bible mentions an army of two hundred million men coming from the east.


It says "horsemen":
quote:
Revelation 9:16-17 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.

Are you taking the lion-heads and fire-breathing literally too?

(I don't see where it mentions the east at all.)

Reminds me of the Monty Python sketch Erizabeth L (which was a take-off on the BBC mini-series Elizabeth R).
