Therefore, when this angel poureth out his vial upon the great river Euphrates, this meaneth that the source of all of the wordliness and greatness of the world shall dry up and cease from giving unto the people of the earth the fine and precious things of the earth which their hearts desire and their souls are set upon.
47 And this shall affect greatly the economy of the beast throughout the world. And once the economy of the earth hath failed miserably, or once the waters of the great river Euphrates have dried up, so that they have no longer give life to the great city of Babylon, then shall the world be prepared for the second coming of the Lord, and the people of the world shall also be prepared to receive the word of God which shall proceed forth from his mouth.
48 And John continueth his prophecy, saying: Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments clean, lest he walked naked, and they see his shame. And these are the elect of God which have received His mark in his foreheads. And He gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue:Armageddon.
