The Euphrates River is Drying Up

Just in case you weren’t quite sure whether we were in the end times, now we learn that the Euphrates river is drying up.

I think it’s clear to many Christians that we are in the end-times, but is a vial being poured out by the sixth angel?

In Revelation 16:12, it is prophesied that the Euphrates will dry up in preparation for the Battle of Armageddon: “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.”

  5. Information about the Euphrates River

    A river named Perath (Hebrew for Euphrates) is one of the four rivers that flow from the Garden of Eden according to Genesis 2:14. This Hebrew word, derived from either the word “stream” or “to break forth”, has been translated as Euphrates. It is the fourth river, after the Pishon, the Gihon, and the Tigris (Hebrew name is Hiddekel), to form from the river flowing out of the garden. The river of the same name marked one of the boundaries of the land promised by God to Abraham and his descendants (Isaac, Jacob, etc). In the Hebrew Bible, it is often referred to simply as “The River” (ha-nahar). (Genesis 15:18).

    God creates the Euphrates: “The name of the third river is Tigris, the one that flows east of Asshur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates” (Genesis 2:14).

    The Euphrates marks the north-eastern border of the land God promises to Abraham: “To your descendants I give this land from the wadi of Egypt to the Great River, the river Euphrates” (Genesis 15:18 in the Jerusalem Bible)

    God tells the Israelites to go to the Promised Land: “Start out and make your way to the hill country of the Amorites and to all their neighbors in the Arabah, the hill country, the Shephelah, the Negeb, the seacoast, the land of the Canaanites, and the Lebanon, as far as the Great River, the river Euphrates” (Deuteronomy 1:7).

    God (through Moses) promises the Israelites the Promised Land: “Every place where you set the soles of your feet shall be yours. Your borders shall run from the wilderness to the Lebanon and from the River, the river Euphrates, to the western sea” (Deuteronomy 11:24).

    The Lord says “Your King will make peace among the nations;/He will rule from sea to sea,/from the Euphrates River to the ends of the earth.” Zechariah 9:10

    In Revelation 16:12, it is prophesied that the Euphrates will dry up in preparation for the Battle of Armageddon: “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.”

    It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. The number of the mounted troops was two hundred million. I heard their number.Revelation 9:14
