In modern times, the use of dams on the river generates power for the entire area. Now a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it parted and became four river heads. Just before Jesus returns to earth a SECOND time, the kingdoms of the North and the South will begin making their preparations for the battle of Armageddon.
The river's first mention is in the Bible book of Genesis: "The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. God will then cause the Euphrates river to dry up so that the armies of the world can gather together (along with the beast and false prophet) to FIGHT Jesus coming directly from heaven (Revelation , 14).
As much as I believe this, this in no way demises the fact that there are many difficulties with its content, nor do I portray the attitude of having come to a complete or full understanding of its message.

Of course, there are a lot of people who don’t feel this way.
Introduction: The book of Revelation is one of the most neglected and yet one of the most abused books of the New Testament today and in times past.
Much of what we assume to be the accepted wisdom regarding relationships is based around intellectual fallacies and cultural assumptions with no actual fact behind them.
The day that we seize to study is the day of our death and the doorway to a better and more complete understanding of the things beyond this life.
There are two dates that are commonly mentioned for the writing of the Book of Revelation: (a) an early date - still during the lifetime of Caesar Nero, about the middle of the 60ies AD; and (b) a late date - about 95/96 AD furing the time of Caesar Domitian.
Bitter conflict ensues between the serpent and the woman, between his seed, and her seed.
Ultimate victory comes through a single Seed of the woman, who crushes the serpent’s head, at the same time suffering a deadly bite to the heel. Chapter 12 of Revelation portrays the whole sweet of the drama from its origin in heaven, to Satan’s attack on Jesus, through the persecutions of the Dark Ages, until the final conflict at the time of the end.
