The Four Angels of the Euphrates

Rev.9:13,14, says "And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates."
This is a more in-depth study of who these four angels are, their history, and their future. I will not belabor the points I have mentioned on this site, but to give a true background of who these angels are some statements may be reemphasized. To understand their background we must travel back in time to the book of Genesis chapter 3:24, which says "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life." The word 'Cherubims' is key in our understanding in learning who these angels are. These angels guarded the Tree of Life, they were protectors who had the capacity of divine knowledge. They were multi-eyed creatures. In the process of time one would wonder what happened to these angels. As humanity began to multiply on the earth, do you think these Angels were still in their proper place of assignment? How many Cherubim guarded the Tree of Life, one might ask. When the Ark of the covenant was made there were two placed on the lid of the Mercy seat. In Solomon's temple there were two giant Cherubim in the temple. But Ezekiel chapter 1:5-18, describes four living creatures with four faces each, and that had eyes round about them, their height was, as Ezekiel says, 'dreadful'. In this passage Ezekiel is describing the glory of the Lord, and these are the appearance's of Cherubim in the vision. The word Cherubim is the plural of the singular Cherub. The Bible says God placed 'Cherubims and a flaming sword which turned every way', if you allow me to use my imagination, I picture four angels standing, or facing each other and in their midst a flaming sword turning vertically and horizontally in every direction. Well, what happened to the Garden of Eden these angels were guarding? The book of Revelation speaks of the Garden of Eden in chapter 2:7, which says "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God." The word 'paradise' here means Eden. The Garden of Eden disappeared from this present earth, and will reappear on the New Earth: Rev.22:2, says "In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations." But the question is, why did it disappear? Weren't these angels guarding the Tree of Life? WHERE THE GARDEN OF EDEN WAS, ISRAEL AND JERUSALEM IS NOW! It is important that we understand that throughout the Bible the land of Canaan was on the mind of God: Deut.11:11,12, says "But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven: A land which the Lord thy God careth for: the eyes of the Lord thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year." Listen to Is.51:3, which says "For the Lord shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like EDEN, and her desert like the GARDEN OF THE LORD; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody." Notice what Ezekiel says about the land of Israel in chapter 36:35, which says "And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the GARDEN OF EDEN; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and inhabited." But notice when Israel were to possess the land who were the inhabitants of that land: Num.13:31-33, says "But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land though which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, WHICH COME OF THE GIANTS: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight." The Children of Israel were faced with a Race of Giants which were called 'Nephilim' the fallen ones, or which come from the fallen ones. They were also known as Rephaim. Those that searched out the land said they came from the giants. The word Nephilim can be traced back to Genesis 6:1-4, verse 4, says "There were giants in the earth in those days; AND ALSO AFTER THAT, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." The phrase 'and also after that' suggest that these giants survived the flood. Remember the flood was sent to destroy all that God created; the Nephilim were not a creation of God, he had another plan for their destruction. The Sons of God in the Old Testament refer to Angels (Job 38:7). Jesus' statement that Angels don't marry or give in Marriage is true (Matt.22:30). But what about Angels who left their habitation and sinned against God? Once these angels sinned against God the Garden of Eden disappeared from this earth. Job again gives us the names of these four angels which led the revolt: 38;31,32, Pleiades, Orion, Mazzaroth, Arcturus. But how do we know for a fact that these Sons of God  married the daughters of men? it is important to understand that the book of Genesis' genealogies are of note. Not only do names represent the character of the person and what they would do in the earth, but names represented what was happening in the earth: for instance if we look at Genesis 10:25, it says "And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of the one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan." The name 'Peleg' actually means earthquake, or division. He was born when God came down and confused the languages at the tower of Babel. The Names in chapter 5, of Genesis give some key indicators that something was going on in the earth. Verse 15, says "And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared." Jared's name means "to descend, to fall down or come down". It was in his time that the third of the angels had fallen from their estate to work wickedness in the earth. Verse 18, says "And Jared lived a hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch:" Enoch's name means to initiate or discipline, also dedicate and to train up. It was Jared's responsibility to train up Enoch to be dedicated to the Lord. Indeed after Jared saw the wickedness in the earth he Knew he had to keep Enoch on the straight and narrow path. Verse 21, says "And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:" Methuselah's name means 'it shall be sent' speaking of the flood. Enoch was a prophet of God and walked with God for 300, years and saw the wickedness in the earth and saw the judgment that would take place. It is here then that we understand there is a book called the Book of Enoch, whether or not it is inspired by God is not the question here, but many of the names indicate the things that happened in the book. In the book of Enoch it speaks of fallen angels who married women, Jared was a key figure in the book, and the early church father's referred to the book of Enoch. But the kicker is that the New Testament book of Jude also quotes the book of Enoch. We know that these are not holy angels, else why are they bound? But the question is if these are fallen angels why are they bound in the river Euphrates and not in Tartarus? Jude 6, says "And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness UNTO the judgment of the great day." And 2Pet.2:4, says "For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved UNTO judgment;" The word 'unto' means against, before or for in this context. The word 'Hell" in this verse comes from the Greek word Tartaroo, where we get the word Tartarus which means the deepest abyss of Hades. This particular word 'Hell' is not a "Hell fire and brimstone" holding place. The word Abyss refers to a bottomless pit, to the underworld, to the deepest ocean floor, or to hell. The word Abyss comes from the Greek word "abussos" which means depth-less, the abyss, the deep, or the bottomless pit. In the Bible the word "Deep" is referring to the abyss (Gen.1:2, Lu.8:31). Job 38:30-32, says "The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep (Abyss) is frozen. Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?" The word 'frozen' suggest to catch in a net, trap or a pit, also to capture. They are bound in the abyss, or the deepest frozen part of Hades. So the phrase 'until hell freezes over' has some credence. The Euphrates pours out into the depths of the Arabian into the Indian Ocean. It seems that Tartaurus is the Euphrates river or the 'Deep' that the Angels are bound in. Their assignment is to destroy the third part of men. They have been released to gather the endtime army of 200,000,000. But they will be destroyed by Christ at the time appointed.
