this means in possession of,
the fallen angels in possession of the Euphrates.
And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
this is a prophetic time frame so this means, using a year for a day and using either solar or lunar days = 391 or 396 years.
The Euphrates marks the area this actions tarts from.
From 962ad the Ghaznevids of Afghanistan were the first Dynasty from Turkey to exercising power with the Arab states.
In 1055ad, Tughril Beg, a Seljurk Turk and Caliph of Baghdad, left the citty and crossed the Euphrates. he attacked and defeated the Christian
Byzantian power at Manzikert on 1071. Armenia, Jerusalem and Asia Minor also fell to the Turks.
In 1095 a crusade against the Turks was called for.
The turks lay siege to Constantinople for years and using artillery and gunpowder (the fire and brimstone in the vision)
The Greek third of the western empire also fell with the defeat of Constantinople.
The vision of the Horseman with breastplates and the fire (red) smoke (blue) and brimstone (yellow) represents the new style of military assault that
the turks exacted on Constantinople.
The horses tail was the standard that the Turkish cavalry used as their standard.
January 18 1057 ( when Caliph of Baghdad crossed the Euphrates) to May 29 1453 is a period of 396 years and 130 days which is very close to the solar
year,day,month, day and hour given in the vision.
the 391 figure mentioned earlier?
add this to 1453ad we get to 1844ad. This is the year that the European powers forced Turkey to cease executions for apostasy which means abandonment
of a fundamental principle of Mohammed/Islam
