"The timing of 6th trumpet"

John and Doves,

Revelation 9:13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 15 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. 

Today I want to talk about the four angels bound in the Euphrates River. When they are released, they will kill one third of men. The killing is not interpreted as direct killing by them, but they go to the kings of the earth to create disputes and provoke wars. It can be understood that they are the corrupt and fallen angels who control and create wars. They have appeared in the history of the past, but they have been bound to the Euphrates River by God. When the end times come, God will allow them to come out again to deceive nations and provoke wars. 

As for why God bound them on the Euphrates River, this has something to do with the future headquarter of the Antichrist in Iraq. According to Zechariah 5:5-11,  Antichrist will move to Shinar during the first half of seven years tribulation. Shinar is in todayís Iraq, Antichrist shall establish his religious headquarter there. Bible says that Antichrist has boastful mouth, blasphemies God and claims to be God. He shall also invade and ravage Israel. Two-thirds of the Jews shall be killed by him. When he does this horrible act, God shall release the four evil angels bound in Euphrates river, so that they will provoke, deceive nations and entice them into a Great War. The consequence of this war is AC's power shall be shaken, which ultimately leads to his fall.  Also, from Daniel 11:44, Micah 5:5, God shall raise up seven shepherds and eight principals, who are kings from the east and north of Babylon, namely China and Russia, joined by a Eastern Alliance, attack Antichrist and his western alliance. These Kings of the east shall finally march their troops to Euphrates River, which is dried up by God, threatening Antichristís mystery Babylon in Iraq. This is world war three, and one-third of the population shall die.  Concerning how long this war will last, according to scriptures, it will be one year, one month, and one day,  not too long.

The 6th trumpet is world war three. It should occur between the 5th and 6th year of tribulation, after the mid-trib invasion against Israel by Antichrist, and the subsequent attack against Egypt and Ethiopia in the 4th and 5th year.

A note here. Some Christians believe America or New York is the Babylon in Revelation 17 and 18. This is not true. Judging by God binding the four angels in Euphrates river, the future world war three has it's root from Euphrates river where Antichrist has his headquarter from. He is the one who creates all the controversy and eventually leads all nations into war. If America and New York meant to be Babylon, God could have used Columbia river or Mississippi river to bind the four angels. But He did not.
