  31. 31. The Sixth Trumpet: Invasion of Middle East by China <ul><li>The Euphrates can be dried up in a day’s time. In 1990 Turkey built a dam on the upper part of the river and by closing the dam, it can stop the water from flowing into the Euphrates.

  33. 33. The Chinese Confederation Comes: Verses 15 – 16 <ul><li>Note in verse 18, we see that 1/3 of the remaining population are killed (or about 1.5 billion people) It is possible that these will be Asian Nations since China won’t allow any possible enemy to stand in the way of her conquests. </li></ul>
  34. 35. The hardness of heart of those left behind after the Rapture <ul><li>Rev 9:20 And the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and golden, and silver, and bronze, and stone, and wooden idols (which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk). </li></ul>
  35. 36. The hardness of heart of those left behind after the Rapture <ul><li>Rev 9:21 And they did not repent of their murders , nor of their sorcerie s [including drug use and witchcraft] , </li></ul>
  36. 37. The hardness of heart of those left behind after the Rapture <ul><li>nor of their fornication [In the Greek, “pornaia” which includes “cross-gender”, homosexuality and other sodomy of all kinds with both men and women, incest, “cross-dressing”, sex with animals and lewdness of dress and actions, watching pornography of all sorts and incest and adultery) , nor of their thefts. </li></ul>
  37. 38. The hardness of heart of those left behind after the Rapture <ul><li>Despite their acknowledgment that these judgments are from God and the Lamb (Jesus) and despite their knowledge that they are brought on by the sins mentioned here, they STILL refused to repent and turn to God for salvation. Instead, as shall be seen, they blasphemed and cursed God for His giving them the consequence and punishment for their evil ways. </li></ul>
