    Ge.2:14 :"And the fourth river is Euphrates." (1 of 2)

    The command number Four informs us that this river is under the watch of the word of God. Of the four river heads only this river can be located precisely and it is for a purpose. Heaven and the earth are two worlds framed by the word of God so whatever of the world unseen shall have its match found on the world made to appear. In short faith and the two worlds stated in He.11:3 serves us a vital principle. We shall first state what is unseen. It is the Will of God. We have this verse, which is a match for the river Euphrates."There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High."(Ps.46:4)

    We shall search for other match-ups before we proceed further. Before the creation of man we read of subterranean reservoir of water, " But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground." (Ge.2:6) When God would cause a great flood He reveals it to Noah. " behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die."(6:17) Windows of heaven work at tandem with the fountains of the deep. "the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened./ And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights."(Ge.7: 11-12) Forty days (4x10) inform us that it ordained by the word of God what framed the two worlds in the first place.

    Jacob after seeing the vision called the windows as the gate of heaven. "this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven."(Ge.28:17) Where shall we look for its match on the earth? "And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them." (Re.11:7).
