Revelation 9



Revelation 9
 
Revelation  1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10,11,12,13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22
 
The Lord uses things of nature that we are familiar with, so we may understand His word. The example of these locusts (men) is the length of time (five months).
 
It was given that they (men) should not kill men, but that they (men) should be tormented five months.
 
Men that do not have = the seal of God in their forehead, which means God's truth.
 
The book of Joel tells us more about Satan's children "these men are likened to locusts".
 
Locusts come from underground, which tells us they work behind closed doors.
 
They come in groups (from their rapid increase) and try to destroy everything in their path.
 
Sounds like most of the media, if you don't believe in their evil ways. That's their job, to teach hate.
 
 They use a gentle appearance shown by the reference to having "hair of women", by their flattery to deceive and a false gentleness. But their teachings and actions will have the same effect as a lion when it attacks.
 
This destroying angel Satan, shall rule as king upon this earth (Satan brings in One Worldism) and deceives the people that have not studied God's word.
 
3rd stage fall angels = You can hear their sound all around the world, they want to take over, they want ''one Worldism'' under one god, their god.
 
God likened this deception to a flight of locusts, where you can identify with the things you can see...
 
Deuteronomy 32:11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:
  • Stirreth = open the eyes = God open our eyes to His Word.
  • Revelation 12 - The woman Israel = the two wings
  • This is how God teaches you = through His Nature
  • God's truth will give you peace of mind.
  • If you know God's Plan, you don't need to worry what's going to happen.
  • He is good to them that take's the time to study His word.
  • He has given us the Bible and it's up to us to study His Word.
Revelation 9:1  And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
  • 5th trump or 1st woe to the earth, Satan fallen into the earth with his angels
  • Pit of lies by Satan, his seed and his angles
  • Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhibiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
  • Revelation 12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
  • Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
  • 2 Corinthians 11:13-4 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
  • Transformed = to transfigure or disguise
  • Luke 10:18  And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
    19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
  • Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
  • Woe to the people that do not have the seal of God in their forehead
  • Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhibiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
  • Who's this star?
  • The fallen star = Satan. 
  • Luke 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
    19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
  • 20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
  • Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
  • Who's the serpent?
  • Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
  • 2 Corinthians 11:13-4 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
  • Transformed = to transfigure or disguise
2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
  • The structure shows that three things from the subject of the 5th trumpet:
  • The fallen angels are here on earth, their power and their continuance of 5 months.
  • The fallen star = Satan
  • The pit of the abyss appears to be the abode of demons with lies
  • The Abyss (The key and the opening)
  • Revelation 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
    2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
    3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
  • Verse 11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
  • The word "Abaddon" in Hebrew means a destroying angel
  • Which means a destroyer, Satan or devil
  • Satan is their king, over this political one Worldism.
  • Refer to Revelation 6:12. - The smoke can be likened to the deception of false christ
  • Revelation 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
  • Smoke of the pit = always associated with judgment or the pit, uncertain, deception, lies and confusion.
  • People are spiritually dead to God's word, without God you are dead, study the dry bones in (Ezekiel 37)
  • Sun and the air were darkened = by the deception poured out on the people
  • Because God word is cut off
  • Satan tribulation has begin, because Satan is here on earth and his angels
  • The truth is cut off = the 4th vial = the four winds are shut (Revelation 7)
  • Luke 4:25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;
    26 But unto none of them was Elijah sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.
  • What's the famine of the end times?
  • Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:
    12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.
  • Once the 4th vial is poured out = it's too late to study God's word'
  • Matthew 25 - 10 virgins = 5 didn't have enough oil = God Word = to make it through the tribulation of Satan.
  • Sun = Light = Christ is the light = God's word
  • Air = Living soul = people are spiritual dead to God's word
  • Genesis 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
  • Darkened = Satan is the prince of darkness = deception = false teaching
  • John 12:30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.
    31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
  • Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
    11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
    12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
    13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
  • Note it said, "AS" the scorpions of the earth have power,
  • Luke 10:18  And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
    19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
  • Smoke is the Greek word NT:2586 means of uncertain affinity; smoke
  • The smoke came from the bottomless pit = Lies, confusion, uncertain
  • The Locusts = men = fallen angels upon the earth, their power and their continuance of 5 months.
  • Verse 7... their faces were as men
  • What's going on in the Mid-East and around the World?
  • Matthew 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
  • 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
  • What's the opposite of wars?
  • Peace.. World Peace ...One Worldism
  • What happen when you hear Peace?
  • 1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
  • Scorpions: A small animal belonging to the same group as the spider and having a poisonous sting at the end of its tail. Scorpions make up an order of arachnids.
  • What is their poison?
  • Deuteronomy 32:33  it's their lies, deceptions poured out on the people.
  • Scorpions has long tail, no stomach, has a venomous sting and so we see a correlation between them and the wicked beast system. but Jesus is telling us something in this.
  • Scorpion: meaning to pierce, skeptic, mark
  • Skeptic: a person who questions the truth of theories or apparent facts; doubter
  • How does a Scorpions have power?
  • A scorpions will paralyzed you = Paralyzed fear = they don't believe God's with them = (Deut 1)
  • Paralyze: to bring to a condition of helpless stoppage or inability to act.
  • Paralyze: To make unable to move or act: ‌paralyzed by fear.
  • They bring confusion to people... lies... to bring in one Worldism
  • Joel 1 and Joel 2  these locusts are the fourth stage of Satan's children, supernatural men.
  • Joel 2:25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
  • Locusts = my great army = men
  • Verse 4 = Here men are the objects of their power, to deceive men.
  • Locust = men comes (from its rapid increase)
  • These locusts did not just happen over night.
  • Joel 1:6 For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.
  • 7 He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white.
  • Daniel 11:20 Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.
    21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person (Satan), to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.
    22 And with the arms of a flood shall they be over flown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant.
    23 And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.
  • Small People = These are the Kenites - rarely (in the sense of massing); a foreign nation; hence, a Gentile; a flight of locusts:  heathen, nation, people.
  • Proverbs 30:27 The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;
4 And it was commanded them (Satan and his angels) that they should not hurt the grass (flesh) of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
  • We know now that these are not locusts, because God told them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, and this is what locusts eat.
  • Verse 7... their faces were as men
  • Grass = flesh
  • 1 Peter 1:24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
  • God said touch not the people with the seal of God in there forehead.
  • What was spoken of on Pentecost Day? 
  • Acts 2:16 This is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel.
  • Joel talks about the four stages of the locusts.
  • Joel 2:25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
    26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
    27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the Lord your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
    28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
    29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
    30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. (divined judgment)
    31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come.
    32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.
  • These creatures are to torment men,  We can assume from this that these are not locusts.
  • Where as the literal locust is a torment to vegetation
  • They were given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
  • Them = the servants of Satan
  • The scorpion, by the way, has a venomous sting and so we see a correlation between them and the wicked government system.
  • The seal of God in the forehead is simply that your mind is impregnated with the truth of Jesus Christ, or to put it in other words, knowing His full truth and doing His work.
  • It is exactly the opposite of the mark of the beast.. the work of your hands
  • Thus, inasmuch as God told them not to hurt the trees or the men with the seal of God, you know that this is not talking about locusts but is talking about false prophets.
  • And the balance of the chapter bears out this view.
  • If you do not have the seal of God in your forehead, you will be tormented five months.
5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
  • Good reading Deuteronomy 1 and Numbers 14
  • The false prophets are not allowed to killed, but to torment
  • It has been their purpose all along to deceive and mislead.
  • Torment is connect with demons, the torments is that they don't know what's going on
  • Satan will loose locusts upon the earth (these locusts being his henchmen or children)
  • Matthew 24 Satan's tribulation shortened.
  • This passage gives us a clue to the length of time
  • Satan was supposed to have three and one half years to reign
  • Jesus says that has been shortened the time to five months
  • He telling you the season of the year to be on watch for Satan's appearance
  • The season during which the common locusts feeds upon vegetation is generally from May - September, Which is a five month period.
  • He is good to us, it is up to us to study His word
  • End times = As the days of Noah Flood - Genesis 6
  • Five months: Mark 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
  • Many will be seeking death because they will have been mislead into thinking that they are entering eternal life, they will not find it, because Satan isn't the true Christ
  • Only Jesus Christ can give eternal life
  • Men seek death = after the elect are delivered up, these that seek death = now know they have worshipped Satan
7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
  • Note it said, faces of men = locusts were likened unto horses prepared unto battle
  • Horses = symbolize strength
  • The crowns = false pastors = as bound about the head = like gold, were the turbans of linen
  • Crown =  as a badge of royalty, a prize in the public games or a symbol of honor generally; but more conspicuous
  • Shapes = likened  to
  • Locusts = these locusts are the fallen angels
  • Faces of men, they are men, deceivers, means courage
  • So we see the power of these false teachers as they influence the Christian world saying that Christ has returned!
  • Just as Satan is counterfeiting the real Christ, these (men) locusts are counterfeiting
    2 Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
    14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
    15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
  • Joel 2:25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
  • Joel 2:9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
  • Nahum 3:17 Thy crowned are as the locusts, and thy captains as the great grasshoppers, which camp in the hedges in the cold day, but when the sun ariseth they flee away, and their place is not known where they are.
8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
  • They were men with a gentle appearance shown by the reference to having "hair of women"
  • Flattery to deceive and a false gentleness.
  • They are going to tell you anything, if you worship Satan, pay all your bills
  • 6th kingdom = The lion (Judah) represent the Christian people, (nations) they will be helping Satan bring in One Worldism.
  • Those that teach the ways of the world, will be helping Satan bring in One Worldism
  • The mark in your forehead, you believe Satan and his children are of God, and you have  followed Satan's ways.
  • Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
  • 2 Corinthians 11:3  But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent (Satan) beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
  • 4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
  • Revelation 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
  • But their teachings and actions will have the same effect as a lion when it attacks.
  • Their teeth as of lion, they rip and tear you to pieces if you go against their teaching
  • They don't care about people.. If you're in their path... they will tear you to pieces
  • If you watch most of the news, etc., you can see how they work, they will lie and attack just like a lion.
  • Saying, it's okay, we are going to pay off all your bills..anything if you worship Satan.
  • Joel 1:6 For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.
  • 7 He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white.
  • They are likened to locusts; they have even taken the bark off the tree
  • They will take everything you have, deceiving you, ripping people off including your soul, if you will left them.
9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
  • Crowns = They claim to be pastors, a man of God, but they are false prophets
  • The breastplate is false too
  • Israel's breastplate is made up as jewels
  • We see yet another counterfeit
  • You need to listen to the sounds...  all around the world
  • You hear the 3rd stage of the locust army saying, One Worldism, One god, their god.
  • The Sound of the 3th stage of the Locusts; they give out a great sound of peace, peace, one Worldism, one god, their god is Satan.
  • These supernatural creatures will appeal by the sound of their wings. False wings, They claim to be pastors, a man of God, but they are false prophets.
    2 Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
    14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
    15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
  • Note, the 3 1/12 years = shortened to 5 months
  • The locust army (Satan's fallen angels) has a 5 month here on earth
  • Notice these are the fallen angels that are cast out with Satan
  • It just happen to be same time as Passover to fall fellowship
  • Mark 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
  • Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
  • A king over them  =  Satan (Revelation 13)
  • The word "Abaddon" in Hebrew means a destroying angel
  • Which means a destroyer, Satan or devil
  • Satan comes to earth to lead his army of false religious teachers to deceive, if possible, even the elect..
  • 2 Corinthians 11:13 Wherefore? because I love you not? God knoweth.
    12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we.
  • 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
    14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
  • Transformed: to transfigure or disguise
  • Revelation 6:2 What's the First Seal?
  • Don't be deceived many false pastors
  • 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
  • 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
12 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
  • 1st woe has pass = the one world government is setup
  • There going to be a deadly wound to the one world system
  • Satan will appear and heal the deadly wound (Revelation 13)
13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
  • Notice the first four angels sounded by being introduced by a "voice".
  • In the former it was the voice of "an eagle flying in mid-heaven" (Revelation 8:13)
  • In this latter, it is the voice "from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God.
  • Coming from this altar it seems to say that we have here the continuation of the answer to the prayers.
  • The voice from the altar (Before God)
  • Satan's evil spirits and Satan's fallen angels = 5months
  • The sixth angel is not only to blow his trumpet, but is also to obey the command.
  • This means that the false christ has set up on earth and his false kingdom and religious system.
  • Satan's one world government reign now begins, for 2 1/2 months
  • Four horns = Coming from the "four horns" the direction goes forth to the four quarters of the earth.
  • Revelation 16:10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,

  •  Loose the four angels, bound, place, Euphrates = 6th vial
  • 2 Peter 2:4 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;
  • Jude 1:6 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.
  • 2nd woe = the 4 angels loosed, horsemen,  place Euphrates River

  • Euphrates is the borders between Truth and Baal (Babylon means confusion)
  • Jeremiah 46:4-10 Shows the power of the prophecies when the river Euphrates is involved
  • Some translations call these four angels "four mighty demons", "fallen angels" or demons angels".
  • These are generals who lead Satan's one-Worldism, false religious teachers.
  • Revelation 16:12  And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
    13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
    14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
    15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
    16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
  • Rivers dried = Rivers are people (Revelation 17)
  • People are spiritualyl dead to God's word
  • Four = number of earth and also brings the end
  • Those with the seal of God in their forehead = Satan is commandment not to touch

  • Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
  • Satan dose kills the two witnesses and 3 1/2 days = 7th trumpet = Christ returns
  • Revelation 11:7 And when they (two witnesses) shall have finished their testimony, the beast (Satan) that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
  • Who goes into the bottomless pit?
  • Satan
  • Revelation 11:11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
  • In the Greek this word ''fear'' is ''phobos'' (5401)
  • It will be a paralyzing fear beyond anything that can be described by man
  • When these two bodies gloriously, with the Shekinah glory covering them, rise up from the dust to meet Jesus.
  • 12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
  • This is the only rapture there is ever going to be as far as we're concerned in the last days; The two witnesses.
  • The so-called rapture that the church is waiting for will not come to pass
  • We all know what Paul said about this in  2 Thessalonians  2, Jesus Christ would not return until after the false christ appears
  • The word rapture is not even mentioned in the word of God
  • 13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
  • We know ''the remnant'' is that 7000 that God told Elijah, He had reserved to Himself who shall not bow the knee to baal.
  • It's strange that the false christ's side has the equivalent number of our 7000 brought out here?
  • 14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
    15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
15 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.
  • Execution of command = four angels were loosed
  • Any time you have the hour, day, month and year it means, it's going to happen instantly.
  • These angels are at present "bound".
  • Satan will be bound, Revelation 20:2-7.
  • But before that day a further division of the satanic forces is to be loose upon the earth.
  • Why "at the river Euphrates" we are not  told.
  • Seeing that Satan's earlier activities were connected with that region.
  • The Euphrates is associated with the coming judgments of the great day.
  • This judgment (not merely to being judged); and this is that of the great day.
  • They are reserved  for the particular appointed moment: the moment of this their loosing.
  • The appointed by time, by God.
  • 2 Peter 2:4 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;
  • Jude 1:6 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.
  • Hour, day, month, year - These are fixed points of time, meaning instancy
  • The four points of time, one preposition show that the occasion is one particular moment appointed by God.
  • The elect are to be wise and know the approximate time, but only God knows the instant
  • To slay the 1/3 of men = spiritual dead
16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
  • Results: The horsemen, You couldn't count them, theses are false prophets
  • These are supernatural beings, they come from below the pit .
  • The book of Joel tells us, there never been nothing like them.
  • Jeremiah 8:13 I will surely consume them, saith the Lord: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them.
    14 Why do we sit still? assemble yourselves, and let us enter into the defenced cities, and let us be silent there: for the Lord our God hath put us to silence, and given us water of gall to drink, because we have sinned against the Lord.

    15 We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of health, and behold trouble!

    16 The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein.

    17 For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the Lord.
  • Isaiah 31:3 Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the Lord shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.
  • The results of this plague which follows the sounding of the sixth trumpet are given in the concluding portion of this chapter.
17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
  • Note the fire issued from their mouths, which means lies poured forth saying their false christ is the true Messiah
  • Those that listen and are deceived by them.
  • Their power is in their mouth = confusion = lies = deception
  • Revelation 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty
  • Do you have ears to hear?
  • Three evil spirits = false teaching
18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
  • By the three offices here; the fallen angels, their king Satan, and the four angels, which are in reality demons, came the lies from their mouths that bring spiritual death to one third of men.
  • Also By their three powers out of their mouth = fire, smoke and brimstone = out of their mouths = deceptions on the people = they blow smoke out of their mouth.
  • How do you know when someone is blowing smoke?
  • If it's not in God's word, you know it's a lie.
  • Burn her with fire = evil spirits has lies = opposite of the Holy Spirit, Fire There could not be a better symbol for God than this of fire, it being immaterial, mysterious, but visible, warming, cheering, comforting, but also terrible and consuming.
  • Matthew 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
  • 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
  • What is the opposite of wars?
  • Peace.. World Peace ...One Worldism
  • 1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.
  • This is the description of these supernatural beings.
  • They are not human, they are coming as false pastors
    2 Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
    14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
    15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
  • They come from below. We know of nothing like them.
  • When God thus describes them nothing ought to be easier than to believe what He says.
  • They're wicked and evil spirits.
  • The work of their hands, always points to idolatry.
  • They will lead you to Satan .. Their power is in their mouth... flood of lies and blowing smoke out of their mouth
  • Revelation 12:15- And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
  • Matthew 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark.
  • Revelation 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
  • Tails = Isaiah 9:15 The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail.
  • 16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.
  • 17 Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
  • 18 For wickedness burneth as the fire: it shall devour the briers and thorns, and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke.
  • Eph 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
    15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
    16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
  • Other than the third who is spiritually dead, there are still great multitudes which are swayed by the deception.
  • There's no repentance without Christ
  • Their gods cannot help them
  • Devils = demons = A worship which is widespread over the world at this hour, despite the Divine warnings.
  • Distinguished from worship of idols.
  • Idols = the idols
21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
  • Sorceries = drug dealers, these false pastor can also get you high on false teaching, promising you everything, IF you worship Satan.
  • Your rulers just passed laws, to let men smoke pot, drugs to keep you deceived. If you are high on drugs, God will let them torment you for 5 months.
  • Torment is connect with demons, the torments is that they don't know what's going on
  • How are the people deceived?
  • Revelation 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
  • Sorceries or spiritualism are the dealings of men with spirit-agencies; accepting the teaching of evil angels and deceiving spirits (1 Tim 4:1) Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
    2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
  • Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
    20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
    21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
