Summary: Mankind’s wickedness cause’s his destruction.

Rev.#54~16:12-21~pt-4~ ~ FINAL PLAGUE~ 5-15-10

Let me say just another word are two about the Great Euphrates river.

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 was the eastern border of the land God promised to Abraham.

Gen. 15:18 “In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt- [ NILE ] unto the great river, the river Euphrates”

It also became the eastern border of the Roman Empire.

The Euphrates River will be miraculously dried up, erasing the border between East and West, so that the kings of the EAST might come to the Battle of Armageddon.

They are coming, so they think, to battle the great political leader, the Antichrist and his armies that have become so powerful.

Lets keep in mind that the “battle of Gog and Magog” { Ezk. 38-39} has just ended with 5/6th of that coalition being destroyed, “GOD remember is the ONE that destroyed it no military was involved”, this is when the Antichrist realizes Russia, that’s heads up the coalition with Iran and other countries of that neighborhood are no longer a threat, he sees an opportunity to destroy the Jews, and invades Israel.

These “kings of the east” has formed a coalition of their own and is coming to battle the Antichrist and his armies of the 10-confederated nation of Europe, and as they make their way across the Euphrates the Lord suddenly appears with His armies in the air.

And then the armies of Antichrist and the armies of the kings of the east band together to make war with Him, and of course we know what happens.—Mankind’s wickedness gets him destroyed.

We read about that in chapter 19:

--------------------------------------------------------------

13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Here is the Satanic trinity.

14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

These demons go forth to all the “leaders of the world” and put these thoughts into their minds and hearts of these rulers, but what is really under way is, GOD IS GATHERING THEM ALL TOGETHER FOR DESTRUCTION, all of this will coincide with the gathering of the “kings of the east”

It is God’s purpose to deal with the nations in judgment in the land of Palestine. Knowing Satan’s purpose and objectives, God will use him and his demonic activity to inspire the nations to move into Palestine.

Gods great plan is to get rid of sin and sinners at this time.

---15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. ----

This verse is a parenthesis written to the faithful remnant of the Tribulation to give them comfort & hope, as well as a warning lest they become discouraged and lose their testimony. These plagues are to them a proof that the Lord’s return is near. –Again verse 16--

16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

We’ll have much more to say about Armageddon when we get to chapter 19: where it actually takes place.

We can see events which are unfolding today that could very well be in preparation to the Tribulation—politically, spiritually, morally and in other ways.

Ø LISTEN--I just want to remind every body that most American are unhappy and dissatisfied with the actions of President Obama and his administration, but God uses all kinds of different people to cause His plan to get on track and stay on His foreordained schedule. He puts up kings and takes down kings for His NAMES sake; nothing can change or alter it in any way.

Daniel 2:21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings:--this applies to all world government heads, Presidents, Prim ministers or what every.

------------------------------------

Since the Lord returns for the church before the Tribulation, it surely must be drawing near.

Ø The Seventh Bowl: tells of Widespread Destruction

This is the 7th and final “bowl plague

16:17-21 17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
