Euphrates River Drying Up: Bible Prophecy Fulfillment

Euphrates River Drying Up: Prophecy Fulfillment

Syria’s Euphrates River Is Drying Up

Jeremiah 50:38-39

38 A drought is upon her waters; and they shall be dried up: for it is the land of graven images, and they are mad upon their idols.

39 Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell there, and the owls shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited for ever; neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation

The Euphrates River, Syria’s longest river, is drying up and raising concerns as millions of people in Syria are losing access to water, food and electricity, from the demise of the river that can lead to a humanitarian disaster.

More than five million people in Syria directly depend on the Euphrates River. As the river is the main source of clean drinking water for people.

It also produces electricity as well from hydroelectric power for about three million people in Syria.

 

The region once known as the Fertile Crescent is on the verge of a food crisis as the main sources of water disappear.

 

Iraqi officials are reporting that for three consecutive years, the rainy season has begun later and ended sooner than the historic norm. This has been coupled with less water flowing through its two main rivers, the Tigris and the Euphrates. The region has also been plagued by ongoing conflict. 

 

“professor at Sweden’s Lulea University of Technology, told Reuters that rainfall in Iraq had declined by 30% over the past three decades, with the lowest precipitation coming in the last two years.

 

“What was once known as the Fertile Crescent started to die about 35 years ago,” he said.

 

Officials accuse Turkey of cutting the river’s flow upstream over the last two years to half the level it committed to in a 1987 accord, a claim the Turkish government denies. 

 

 

All these elements combined have led to a food crisis in the region. Almost 90% of rain-fed crops, mostly wheat and barley, failed this season, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Iraq.

The 1,700-mile-long Euphrates is the main source of drinking water as well as powering three hydroelectric plants that produce electricity for about three million people in Syria. Two dams in northern Syria face imminent closure which would leave about three million people without any access to electricity. 

 

The water level at the Tishrin Dam, the first into which the river falls inside Syria, has dropped five meters and is currently about ten centimeters above “dead level” when the turbines stop producing electricity.

 

The Euphrates figures prominently in the Bible with it being described as bordering the Garden of Eden.

 

“The name of the third river is Tigris, the one that flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates. “Genesis 2:14

 

It was also named as one of the borders of the land God granted to Abraham’s descendants.

On that day Hashem made a covenant with Avram, saying, “To your offspring I assign this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates:” Genesis 15:18

 

The prophet Jeremiah described how the waters of Babylon, the region currently including Syria and Iraq, would dry up as a punishment for their idolatrous practices, the devastation being so complete as to render the region, once part of the so-called ‘fertile crescent’, uninhabitable.

 

drought against its waters, that they be dried up! For it is a land of idols; They are besotted by their dread images. Assuredly, Wildcats and hyenas shall dwell [there], And ostriches shall dwell there; It shall never be settled again, Nor inhabited throughout the ages. Jeremiah 50:38-39 

 

The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21, Revelation 16) foretell that the water of the Euphrates River will dry up preparing the way for powerful nations from the east to come to the battle of Armageddon signaling the world is nearing the end of this age and the coming of Jesus Christ.

These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).

Christian eschatology foresees the River Euphrates drying up in the Book of Revelation Chapter 16 and playing an important role in the march of the Kings of the East upon the Middle East.
