The Siege 

"Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing?  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the
rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His Annointed..."
                                        --Psalms 2:1-2

*  Koresh identified the government as the evil entity that the righteous Branch Davidians would someday face in apocalyptic warfare.
 
Feb. 28, 1993:
ATF invaded Ranch Apocalypse and attempted to serve Koresh with an arrest warrant on arms violations
 * A gunfight ensued, resulting in deaths of both Davidians and ATF agents
Soon thereafter:
FBI joined in the effort against Koresh and his followers
* Koresh agreed to give himself up in exchange for radio air time of his preachings
* Koresh then received a sign from God to wait forrevelations of the seals which he was to record in a book
The FBI viewed these "revelations" to be ongoing stall-tactics and, after 50 days, decided it was time to take action.

The Final Day 

    On April 19, 1993, government tanks broke through the walls of the Ranch and injected tear gas.  Suddenly fires broke out throughout the building complex and soon became out of control.  Koresh and about 75 of his followers perished in the flames, among them 21 children.  Only eight people survived.  It is not certain if it was the government agents or the Branch Davidians who ignited the deadly flames, but whatever the case, the prophecies of David Koresh were fulfilled for those who passed away.
