The Terrorizing Wrath of God Part 4

“The Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath”

6. The River Euphrates Dried Up:

12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East.” NIV

      This phenomenon of the Euphrates River is very significant. This is in preparation for the Great Battle of Armageddon and very close in time for the second coming of the Lord and the beginning of the Millennium. This is indeed very near to the humiliating end of the Dragon, The Antichrist and The False Prophet. Daniel 11:40-45 illustrates for us this dramatic and historical event that marks the start of Armageddon and the end of the Dragon’s reign:

40 “At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through.

(The Antichrist will win great battles here)

 “41 He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon.”

(The Glorious Land is Israel; the Antichrist shall also overthrow many other countries, but he will not be able to over take them all. Edom, Moab and Ammon will be able to escape from his hands)

 

42 He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 43 He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels.

 

(Here we can see that Egypt will not be able to escape the Antichrist’s power. We can also see that Libya and the African nation of Ethiopia will follow the Antichrist)

 

44 But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many. 45 And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him.”

(Here we see an echo of what we just saw in Revelation 16 as the waters of the Euphrates River dried up. This prepared the way for the kings of the east to go after the armies of the Antichrist.)

Back to Revelation 16:13-14 / 16 we see the following:

13 Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 They are demonic spirits that perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.” NIV

16 Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.” NIV

      This is Armageddon! Armageddon will make our World Wars look like little Civil Wars. We will see the whole word divided in two powerful and huge armies. The whole world will be participating in this war.    Now, I have asked myself if everybody involved in those armies that are coming against the Antichrist will be a Christian. Does rejecting the mark of the beast necessarily mean that they embrace Jesus? I do not have the answer to these questions, but a good place to start is in the study of the Millennium, which will take place after the end of the Great Tribulation and after the Second Coming of Christ. That my friends… will be another series!

      Stay with us for the next part as we deal with the Seventh and last Bowl of God’s Wrath.

To be Continued…
