Euphrates River to Be Dried Up ü
We are living in the endtime
In revelatIon 16:12, the bIble predIcts that the euphrates rIver wIll be
drIed up to prepare the way for the kings of the East to invade Israel. This
will happen at the time of the battle of Armageddon according to verse 16 of
the same chapter. The battle of Armageddon will be the final battle at which
time Jesus will return and fight on the side of the nation of Israel. Immediately
thereafter He will establish his kingdom and usher in His one-thousand year
reign of peace. On January 13, 1990, the Indianapolis Star carried the headline
“Turkey Will Cut Off Flow of Euphrates for One Month.” The article stated
that a huge reservoir had been built by Turkey. While filling up the reservoir,
the flow of the Euphrates would be stopped for one month and a concrete
plug for a diversion channel built. These things have now been done. With this
newly built dam, Turkey has the ability to stop the Euphrates River at will. The
conditions for fulfilling this 1,900 year-old prophecy are now in place.

declared as a dependent on an income tax return. We have seen the emergence
of electronic money, shopping with credit cards, and many people actually
urging the abolition of cash. All of these things could not possibly have been
fulfilled until this present time. Only after the invention of the computer could
such a worldwide numbering system be administered.
The Emergence of a New World Order ü
revelatIon 13:7 and danIel 7:23 prophesy the establIshment of a world
government. The term “New World Order” has become a prevalent phrase
in the world’s political culture. Mikhail Gorbachev made the term famous,
and Pope John Paul II referred to it repeatedly. In the September 12, 1990
issue of the Chicago Tribune, our former president George Bush said, “Iraq
is the first test for the New World Order.” He emphatically stated that the
Iraq War was Saddam Hussein against the world. The United Nations’ troops
are continually referred to as the multi-national forces. The decision has been
made to establish an interdependent community of nations that will rule the
world under United Nations authority. The Bible says that this will lead us into
a great world government. The formation of this government is at hand.
Coincidence or Divine Providence? ü
Is It coIncIdental that all of these major prophecies pertaining to the last
times are being fulfilled simultaneously? Hardly!

3–5 years. Knowing what these prophetic events are will
help you understand what is likely to occur in 2006.
18 Was the Covenant Confirmed on 9/20/2005?
On September 20, 2005, a meeting of the Quartet was
held at the United Nations to reaffirm the international
community’s support of the Roadmap for Peace, a plan
designed to determine the status of the Temple Mount and
the borders of the Holy Land.
26 War: Is Religion to Blame?
It is popularly said that religion is responsible for the majority
of the world’s conflicts. But can the finger of guilt really
point to religion as the primary cause of war and strife?
