The river is the primary water source for Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia for the past six thousand years, and its development and fertility are unparalleled.
But now, things are changing, and new questions are emerging.
Why is the river so significant? What lies beneath it? How does it relate to the Rapture and Christ’s Second Coming?
The Euphrates River was spoken about in the book of Revelations in the holy bible
There are several prophecies and myths about the river drying up. This river and what lies underneath it have links to Christianity, Islam, and ancient Babylon.
There is an old myth that Babylon has a tunnel beneath the Euphrates that unites the two sides of the city.
Christianity and Islam predict that this river will dry up. Christianity’s interpretation of a 95 A.D. written prophecy is that the Euphrates River will dry up during the latter days.
Below are some scriptures references about River Euphrates:
“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.”
“Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.”
