What Is Happening to the Euphrates River?

The Bible predicts that in the last days, the Euphrates River will dry up to prepare the way for the “Kings of the East” to pass through. The river itself is a massive land barrier that would hinder any army from advancing east to west. At more than 1,800 miles long and an average of 300 yards wide, the Euphrates River has been a substantial source of life in the region.

“The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East.” Revelation 16:12

The Bible doesn’t say who the “kings of the east” are, and biblical scholars and theologians have different ideas about who they are. One popular interpretation is that the “kings of the east” are a reference to the rise of China and other Asian nations as powerful political and economic entities.

John predicts in Revelation 9:16–18 that these kings of the east will boast a standing army of 200 million. This is a bold prophecy, especially when you consider that at the time he was writing, there weren’t 200 million people on the planet. However, as you read this today, China has an army of more than 200 million, just as the Bible predicted.

It’s also worth noting that, whatever the kings of the east are, they are seen as a formidable force in the end times and are going to be part of the final battles that will take place before the return of Jesus. Either way, this massive army will need to cross the Euphrates on their way to the valley of Armageddon.

Recent news articles have reported that the Euphrates River is indeed drying up. According to a study by the University of Arizona, the river’s flow has decreased by more than 60% over the past century due to dams and irrigation projects in Turkey, Syria, and Iraq. There’s also been an unknown factor that has caused it to increase that no one can explain. This decrease in flow has had a significant impact on the region, causing water shortages and affecting the livelihoods of those who depend on the river for agriculture and fishing.

The drying up of the Euphrates River is a clear fulfillment of Bible prophecy and a sign that we must be ready for Jesus’ return. As stated in Matthew 24:44, “Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
