    THE PLAGUES OF GOD’S WRATH

    In this chapter the story of the sixth plague is given in these words, “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.”EQ 13.3

    Now as for the real flowing river Euphrates, which rises in the mountains of Armenia and empties into the Persian Gulf, kings both of East and West have crossed and recrossed it at will from the days of Chedorlaomer until now, without its ever having to be dried up that they might pass. This expression therefore can not refer to the water of the literal river. What, then? In the next chapter, verse 15, it is stated that “waters are peoples.” Then the drying up of the water of the Euphrates that the way of the kings of the East may be prepared is clearly the ending of the power that occupies the country of the Euphrates. What power is this?-The Turkish power alone.EQ 13.4

    This, then, is another plain declaration of the Word of God announcing the certain ending of the Turkish power. And, according to this scripture, what comes at the ending of that power? What are the kings of the East going to do when the way for them shall be thus prepared? Read on.EQ 14.1

    “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. 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. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. 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.”EQ 14.2
