The 6th Trumpet and 6th Vial
6th Trumpet:  And the sixth angel sounded the blast of a trumpet; and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar and place of sacrifice which is before the very exceeding God,  Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Unloose the four angels which are in bonds, in the great river Euphrates.  And the four angels were unloosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay, to kill outright and destroy the third part of human beings.  And the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred thousand thousand; that is, two hundred million: and I heard the number of them.  And thus, I saw the horses in the inspired appearance of the vision, and them that sat on them, having a chest and breastplate of flaming red fire; and of jacinth, deep blue; and a yellow sulfurous-like brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths proceeded a lightning fire and smoke and a sulfurous brimstone.  By these three was the stroke, calamity and plague that caused the third part of human beings to be outright killed and slain to death, by the lightning fire; and by the smoke, and by the yellow sulfurous like-brimstone, which proceeded out of their mouths.  For their power and force is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were in the like manner and similar to a malicious snake or serpent, and had heads, and with them they do hurt and injure.  And the rest and remaining of the human beings which were not killed and slain by these strokes of calamity and plagues, yet repented not, nor reconsidered their thoughts, to think differently of the work and labor of their hands, that they should not and in no wise fall down to pay homage, give reverence, adore and worship demonic beings, as a deity and an image of an idol of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:  Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorcery and witchcraft, nor of their harlotry and fornication, nor of their thefts. [Revelation 9:13-21].
It is a possibility, this 6th trumpet occurs a few months before the Rapture of the saved, since the previous 5th trumpet may indicate the remaining 5 months of a Biblical 30 day period to the end of the Great Tribulation Period, including the 45 days of the Wrath of God (the seven vials). Therefore, the 5th trumpet is 150 days in length, minus the 45 days during the Wrath of God (the seven vials) and if the 7th trumpet (the Rapture occurs on the blowing of the 7th or last trump) is proportional at 35 days, it leaves 70 days in which the saved will still be on the earth during this 6th trumpet event. The events detailing the drying up of the Euphrates River occurs after the Rapture and a few weeks before the end of the Great Tribulation Period.
These riders upon the horses are “spirits” associated with the angel Gabriel while they were still perfect. After their fall, they are called “demons.” The horses are “spirits” associated with the angel Lucifer while they were still perfect. After the fall, they are called “demons.” These two groups of demonic beings are working together to use the earth, by way of shifting the earth’s crust to produce earthquakes and volcanic eruptions to destroy humanity upon it…
Revelation 9:13-21 – 6th trumpet – release of four demonic kings, which lead approximately 200 million demons to kill a third of the human population with fire, smoke and an intense sulfurous suffocating odor.
06. This is the release of four chief demonic beings which command 200 million demons to kill 1/3 of humanity with fire, smoke and brimstone, which are from volcanic eruptions and volcanic lava flows. This is the second “Woe” upon the earth.
The True Christian Believers, that is, the Saved are still on the earth during this event.
6th Vial: And the sixth angel poured out his broad shallow cup and vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the running water thereof was dried up; that the way, journey and route of the kings of the eastern rising of the sun, might be prepared and made ready. And he gathered, collected and led them together into a place for a purpose, called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon or Har-Meggiddon, that is, Megiddo. [Revelation 16:12&16].
When the Islamic – (Arab) – (Antichrist) – leader, along with the ten Arab confederation of nations and the other Eurasian nations who respond to his call for the Battle of Armageddon, it will be getting near the time in which the Lord will return as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The Lord will cause the Mount of Olives to split in two and the western section of Jerusalem will be lifted, exposing a newly formed spring. This will be the spring in which the Prophet Ezekiel mentions and will flow east to connect with the Jordan River, which has been increased to a great river, because the Euphrates River has been diverted to form this single mighty river.
Ezekiel 47:  Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.  Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looketh eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side.  And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.  Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins.  Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.  And he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river.  Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other.  Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed.  And it shall come to pass, that everything that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and everything shall live whither the river cometh.  And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from En-gedi even unto En-eglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.  But the miry places thereof and the marshes thereof shall not be healed; they shall be given to salt.  And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.
Zechariah 14:  Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.  For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.  Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.  And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.  And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.  And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:  But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.  And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.  And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.  All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king’s winepresses.
After all the geological changes have occurred, resulting in the diverted Euphrates River and the new spring from Jerusalem, the Jordan River will begin to flow out of the Dead Sea into the Gulf of Aqaba. The Sinai Peninsula will be pushed into the African continent allowing this new river to flow freely. The Sinai Peninsula is “the tongue of the Egyptian sea.” The earthquake that occurs when the Mount of Olives splits in half will cause the southern section of the Dead Sea Fault Zone to also split apart and/or possibly subside, allowing the Jordan River to flow south into the Gulf of Aqaba and finally into the Red Sea.
Isaiah 11:  And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dry-shod.  And there shall be a highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.
Ezekiel 47:  And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from En-gedi even unto En-eglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.
When the Euphrates River, the Jordan River and Ezekiel’s spring combine their water sources, in addition to hundreds, perhaps thousands of newly formed springs, along with the transformation of the southern end of the Dead Sea Fault Zone, the “New River” will be able to support an abundance of freshwater fish for the 1,000 years in which Israel will become the breadbasket of the world.
Revelation 16:12-16 – 6th plague –the releasing of three evil spirits, causing people to worship the antichrist and to gather for the battle of Armageddon, including the diversion of the Euphrates River towards the Jordan River valley.
Phase Six: 6th Seal, 6thTrumpet, 6th Seal
Revelation 9:13-21 –  And 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 which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.  And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.  And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.  And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.  By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.  For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.  And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:  Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
[Revelation 16:12 & 16] 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. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
At some time in eons past God confined four of Satan’s angels to a material place — the Euphrates River. They are imprisoned here for a specific purpose — to destroy one-third of the Holy Land population. These four demonic beings and their 200-million demonic army will use the natural elements of volcanic fire to destroy people in this area. A large number of people will be jammed along the upper Euphrates and down the Jordan through the valley of Armageddon. This massive army will be there at the request of the Antichrist or Islamic leader to finally destroy the people of Israel. During this time, the splitting of the Great Rift Valley from Lebanon to the Gulf of Aqabah will cause the collapse of the Palmyra folds and faults. The Euphrates River will be diverted towards the Jordan River and the Dead Sea into the Gulf of Aqabah. The southern three-fourths of the Euphrates River will dry up and allow the kings of the east to travel west to Jerusalem to worship the returned Messiah for the next one thousand years.
1. The trumpet of the sixth angel announces: “Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.”
2. For a specific time period: “which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year.” For an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year—rather as Greek, “for (that is, against) THE hour, and day, and month, and year,” namely, appointed by God. The Greek article, put once only before all the periods, implies that the hour in the day, and the day in the month, and the month in the year, and the year itself, had been definitely fixed by God.
3. For one propose: “for to slay the third part of men.”
4. The number of this demonic army is 200,000,000: “And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.”
5. The description of their appearance and method of their warfare: “And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.”
In this description:
1. There are horses.
2. There are demonic beings sitting upon the horses.
3. These demonic beings have breastplates of fire and of jacinth and brimstone.
4. The heads of the horses were like lions and out of their mouth issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
5. The third part of men was killed by fire and by the smoke and brimstone.
6. Their power is in their mouth to use fire, smoke and brimstone.
7. They have tails, which also have heads and have the ability to hurt humans.
From the above verses, we notice the words, fire, jacinth or smoke and brimstone used to describe the horse rider and the method of his destructive power.
1. The word, “breastplates” is from the Greek word: qwrax -thorax – tho’-rax and has the meaning of: the chest (“thorax”), i.e. a corslet:–breast-plate.
2. The word, “fire” is from the Greek word: purinoV -purinos –poo’-ree-nos and has the meaning of: fiery, i.e. flaming:–of fire.
3. The word, “jacinth” is from the Greek word: uakinqinoV -huakinthinos –hoo –ak -in’-thee-nos and has the meaning of: “hyacinthine” or “jacinthine”, i.e. deep blue:–jacinth. Properly a flower of a reddish blue or deep purple.
4. The word “smoke” is from the Greek word: kapnoV -kapnos –kap-nos’ and has the meaning of: smoke.
5. The word “brimstone”is from the Greek word: qeion -theion –thi’-on and has the meaning of: (in its original sense of flashing); sulphur:–brimstone. Brimstone: An inflammable mineral substance found in quantities on the shores of the Dead Sea.
A. The rider has a corslet: corslet – a piece of body armor for the trunk; usually consists of a breastplate and back piece. Its appearance is a deep blue, dusky yellowish color.
B. Out of the mouth of the horse comes forth yellowish flashing fire and smoke in which to kill human beings.
The 6th Seal – The Wrath Of The Lamb
The 6th Seal:  And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal; and, lo, behold, there was a great, mighty and large earthquake and a commotion of the ground; and the light of the sun, from the rising in the east, became black as the garments of sackcloth made of hair, and the whole disc of the moon became in the manner and similar to blood;  And the stars, stretching over the sky of heaven, fell on the regions of the earth, in the manner as a fig tree drops her unripe and untimely figs, when she is being shaken of a great and mighty gale of wind.  And the sky of heaven rent apart, departed and separated as a writing scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain as being lifted above the plain; and every isle and island were moved in motion out of their original places.  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 and concealed themselves in the dens, caves and caverns of the masses of the rocks of the mountains, being lifted above the plain;  And said to the mountains, being lifted above the plain and masses of rocks, Fall down upon us, and hide with a covering to keep us in secret from the face of Him who is seated upon the throne, and from the violent passion and justifiable wrath of the Lamb:  For the great and mighty day of His violent passion and abhorrence, anger and justifiable wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? [Revelation 6:12-17].
The sixth seal is the beginning of the Great Tribulation Period. This “great earthquake” will occur in the Jordan River Valley as the antichrist or Islamic leader; with the ten Arab countries launch their attack against Israel. Upon their approach southward, this “great earthquake” will stop this Islamic army from their attempt to completely destroy the nation of Israel. This “great earthquake” will cause a resonance of earthquake shock waves to penetrate throughout the entire earth and create a worldwide domino effect of earthquake activity that will intensify for the next 3 ½ years. These earthquake shock waves will produce a secondary effect: volcanic eruptions on a global scale.
