- Revelation 16:12 And 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 of the East.
The sudden and worrying decline of America in the last couple of years is disturbing for Westerners to say the very least. A country divided politically and appearing to be on the brink of civil war. The country's lack of vision and negotiation power along with muscle power ended last month with probably the most embarrassing and shambolic "escape" from war-torn Afghanistan leaving thousands of American civilians and Afghanistan helpers stranded and left to the evil hands of the Taliban. Add to that the billions of dollars of military equipment gifted to the Jihadis which will no doubt be used against the West in terrorist attacks in the coming months and years.
China of course will fill the American void in Afghanistan along with Russia and her Muslim proxies, Iran and Siria. Afghanistan is a land rich in minerals used for weaponry and war. As a fighting nation and deterrent America is finished, just the British Empire began to crumble after WWI so is the world's first "Superpower."
China's rise as a world power has been incredible, "kings of the East" without doubt, and indeed frightening, they appear to be about to attack and retake Taiwan, no power in the Western world will be able to stop them, especially when you consider, the other "kings of the East" Russia and to a lesser extent Iran and Turkey have become allies to the Chinese.
The first cracks in America's dominance as a world power appeared in 2014 when President Barak Obama's decision to impose international sanctions against Russia instead of a head-on confrontation simply handed Crimea into Putin's lap. The Russian government retaliated with sanctions of its own against the West. And last month a new depth was reached when the supposed biggest military power in the world failed to secure a small runway from a group of international terrorists in Afghanistan, how the mighty fall.
Has America's rapid demise prepared the way for "A Revelation To John's" prophecy of a sixth angel pouring out his bowl and... "preparing a way for the kings of the East?" Well, for this prophecy to come true the great River Euphrates which runs from Turkey, Syria, and Iraq has to dry up.
In the early summer of this year, the longest river of Western Asia has seen a dramatic decline in water levels. Syria accused Turkey of depriving Syrians of their water share of the Euphrates river, saying electricity production at the Euphrates Dam stopped and water level in Lake Al-Assad, the Syrian state-owned news agency SANA reported in May.
In just ten days, Turkey reduced the water flow to Syria from 500 to 200 cubic meters per second, suspending electricity production at the Euphrates Dam and led to a decrease in the irrigation of drinking water, besides a remarkable depletion of Lake Assad, SANA said.
America in end-times prophecy!
America and the UK will not be able to defend against an attack on Israel by the kings of the East according to a prophecy which was written more than 2,500 years ago
There is a prophecy which was written more than 2,500 years ago which worryingly describes America as a meek onlooker who can only protest but not protect Israel when they are attacked by a Russian, Iranian, Turkish and Syrian coalition and may just provide an insight into the near future of the worlds biggest super-power.
As we know, the US has been hit harder than any other country from Covid-19, and an economical collapse seems inevitable at some point, its folks are bitterly divided, with many decent citizens having to move from suburbs as murder and crime soar. Civil war is on many people's lips but it's American enemies around the world who are waiting in the wings like vultures ready to scavenge the left-overs as civil unrest consumes the country.
The kings of the East
The prophecy in the book of Ezekiel, Chapter 38, is a warning of an attack on Israel in the future, from a group of nations led by someone called Gog, who comes from Magog. Magog is said to be North West of the Caspian Sea, there are just two countries North West of the Caspian Sea, Kazakhstan, and Russia. Gog is the head chieftain, (leader) of Meshech and Tubal which according to Wikipedia is a Japhetite tribe. However, the Indo-European group is no longer known as "Japhetite", the Hamitic group is now recognized as paraphyletic within the Afro-Asiatic family. Among Muslim historians, Japheth is usually regarded as the ancestor of the Gog and Magog tribes. According to Delilah Ann Gill, (see comments below) Ghayin, (Hebrew) later shortened to G, is a twisted rope or a twisted dark goat horn thus it is:Gog: Dark and Twisted:
Ezekiel goes on to say Persia, Ethiopia, and Put are among the coalition, Persia is modern-day Iran, (Iran's leaders despise Israel and would dearly love to wipe it off the map), and Put, which is thought to be Lybia. In verse 8, Ezekiel mentions the fact, that after many years of being left desolated, the inhabitants of the land (Jews) have been restored to Israel and will be living in peace and security at the time of the attack. Part of this prophecy was established in 1948 when the Jews regained their land after they had lost it 2,000 years earlier, however, they are obviously not living in peace and security at the moment but just this month a surprising peace deal has been reached between Isreal and the United Arab Emirates, who became the third Arab country to make peace after Egypt and Jordan.
According to The Jerusalem Post, there are rumors that several other states could be next to sign an agreement with Israel. While there are hurdles to normalizing relations with some states in the Middle East, there are others who view the UAE decision as a trial balloon and will react positively based on how the next weeks and months play out between Jerusalem and Abu Dhabi. Those countries are as follows, Bahrain, Oman, Morocco, Saudia Arabia, (who are mentioned later as an ally of the US), and Qatar, so as you can see, Israel living in peace and security could be not very far away.
In verse11 of Ezekiel 38, he claims, the coalition (with China?) will invade the land of unprotected settlements to take much spoil and plunder. Ezekiel 13 claims, Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and its "young lions," will say to (Gog), "are you invading to get much spoil and plunder?" " Have you assembled your armies to carry off silver and gold?
Sheba and Dedan are what's now called Saudi Arabia and they are allies of Tarshish and its young lions. Tarshish is almost certainly the UK and was mentioned in the Bible as far back as Genesis 10. Tarshish translates to the "Tin Isles." Tin was needed in ancient times to make bronze, tin has been mined in Britain for thousands of years, something not mined in great quantities anywhere else in Europe. The “merchants of Tarshish and the young lions thereof” are the offshoots of Britain from their Empire days, the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Britain ruled the oceans and used its ships to connect the world with ocean shipping roots which are exploited today by its "young lions, " The mighty US among others. Full story
What is interesting to note here is the fact that Israel's staunch allies of today, the US and the UK appear not to be able to defend Israel from the Magog coalition and merely ask Gog in a weak response, "are you invading to get much spoil and plunder?" "Have you assembled your armies to carry off silver and gold?" A polite, meek diplomatic protest rather than a threat of retaliation. Has the US lost its "Super Power" status in the future? Have today's problems brought the country to its knees in the future?
In verse 19, Ezekiel speaks of a great earthquake, an earthquake that causes every living thing on the earth to tremble and every wall to collapse to the ground, every mountain and island to be moved from their foundations. Once again Jehovah warns us he will bring pestilence, bloodshed and He will rain down hailstones, fire, and sulfur.
Is this the same earthquake mentioned in Isaiah 24:19? The earth is utterly broken apart, the earth is split open, the earth is shaken violently. 20 The earth staggers like a drunkard and sways like a shack. Earth’s rebellion weighs it down, and it falls, never to rise again, yes, indeed it is
And in Revelation 6:12? And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
Is the earthquake caused by a solar flare? In Revelation 8:7 John appears to describe a coronal mass ejection; The first angel sounded and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
According to Brent Miller the religious academic, Plasma leaving the sun would be 2 million deg F, by the time the ejection reached Earth the plasma would be liquid fire at 6,000 deg F. The plasma would cause a pressure wave which would push through the outer atmosphere which is minus 150 deg F into the stratosphere freezing all the water crystals into ice causing ice and hale, the heat would follow causing hundreds of airplanes in the air at the time to crash. The heat would then continue to burn the part of the Earth's vegetation, (hail and fire mingled with blood). Brent Miller
What is wonderful about Ezekiel 38, is the fact that it is a prophecy that has partly been fulfilled, Israel was returned to the Jews back in 1948 as mentioned in chapter 8, and the fact that the Saudi's are allied with Tarshish and its young lions, the UK and the US. Another part of the prophecy appears to be unfolding with Bahrain, Oman, Morocco, Saudia Arabia, Qatar, following the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, and Egypt signing a peace deal with Israel. So as you can see, Israel living in peace and security could be not very far away. And not to forget the alliance of China, Russia, Iran, and Turkey at this historical moment of time. By the way, Iran is fighting a proxy war with Saudi Arabia, and Iran, Russia, and Turkey are all embroiled in the current Syrian conflict.
Was summer 2021 the time 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 of the East? Could the US and UK defend Israel against a Chinese, Russian, Iranian coalition? They couldn't defend a runway against a band of desperados last month, what chance against a mighty coalition?
