Rev 16:12~19 #55-THINGS PERTAINING TO THE EUPHRATES RIVER~5-22-10

Last time we finished chapter 16: and was going to try and get into chapter 17: but I decided to talk some more about the GREAT EUPHRATES RIVER.

Ø The 1st time the Euphrates is mentioned in the Bible is found in

Gen.2:10-14 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.

11The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth**{encircled} the whole land of

Ha-vi-lah,**{ a region encircled by the Pishon River, a place whose exact position is unknown, thought to be in the northeast corner of Asia Minor, near the Caspian Sea.} where there is gold; 12And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.

13And the name of the second river is Gi-hon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.

14And the name of the third river is Hid-dek-el: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

Ø And the last time we read about the Euphrates is found in

Rev.16:12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

So the Euphrates was at the beginning of mankind and is prominent at the close of rebellious man.

Ø Listen as I read again verse 12 of chapter 16:

12And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

The Euphrates River will be supernaturally dried up for the sole purpose of making the way of the kings of the east to get to the valley of MEGIDDO, where the battle of Armageddon will take place, these are the people that we know as the Chinese, Japanese, and other people of that part of the world.

Lets realize that God is in the process of gathering all the armies of the world together at this time, these kings of the east and the kings of the earth in verse 14 are two different bodies of nations and armies, but these “kings of the east” think at this particular point in the tribulation that they’re coming to do battle with the Antichrist and his forces because of the destruction that has already taken place with Russia and her coalition that we read about in EZK. 38:& 39:, it seems as though these “kings of the east” believe that the antichrist and his ten toed confederation are responsible for their destruction, although it was God that destroys 5/6th of that coalition of Gog & Magog, but these don’t know that, their unbelievers, God is gathering these armies together in order to destroy them.

We have always heard this referred too as “the battle of Armageddon”, which is not a term used in the Bible.

This will be the most one sided battle that has ever been known, the participates are the worlds forces against ONE MAN, the God Man JESUS CHRIST, He will simple speak His Word and they’ll drop like flies.
