“One woe is past. Behold, still two more woes are coming after these things.
Sixth Trumpet: Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.”
So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind.
Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them.” (NKJV)
Seemingly in every part of the globe with increasing magnitude there are acts of terrorism, threats of war and actual warfare. Some might say that these flash points can be resolved by nations states discussing their differences and agreeing to peacefully resolve their differences, by UN resolutions, economic sanctions and as a last resort war on a limited basis. While these endeavors have been successful in resolving prior conflicts, current deepening divisions among nations, radical religious ideologies held by some nations and rogue nations who simply wish to dominate or annihilate nations have brought the world to a crisis point unparalleled in human history.
Crisis events and warring nation states have brought the world to the period that is addressed in the above referenced scripture. Almighty God, through his infinite wisdom has given us a snapshot of a global war that will emanate in the Euphrates river valley and spread globally. The nations which border this region are Turkey, Iraq, Syria and Iran. Currently America and its coalition allies are fighting to eliminate ISIS and its caliphate, fighting to stop Assad from massacring a portion of his Syrian populace, fighting Iranians proxies who have exported Islamic terrorism in the Middle East and across the globe and fighting the Russians more or less via Syria as their proxy.
A careful reading of the above text states that under the Sixth Trumpet, demonic angels will be loosed in the Euphrates River area resulting in a world war – we will call it World War 3 – the aftermath which will leave one-third of humanity, 2.3 million people dead. Currently this area is the most volatile point on the globe and the crisis has recently escalated by the entrance of Russia who has sided with the Assad regime and Syria. Assad’s “dropping of chemical and barrel bombs” on the portions of Syria that he has deemed unfit to live have resulted in outcries from every civilized nation. However the UN Security Council has simply issued resolutions stating its condemnation of the Assad’s heinous behavior, but has not called upon all member states to place serious sanctions on Assad’s regime. Russia alliance with Syria is somewhat of an enigma. While Russia claims to be in the fight with America and its coalition forces against ISIS, it stands against America and its coalition forces who have come against Assad for his genocidal behavior. America’s move against Assad’s war criminal behavior has raised the ire of Russia and its constituency – fellow communist and radical Islamic nations sympatric to Assad’s behavior.
The Sixth Trumpet War or what we call World War 3 is certain to occur, the loss of live will be unimaginable, there is nothing world leaders can do to avoid it. Preparation if key, enjoy your family each day, be spiritually prepared, financially prepared and emotionally prepared.
