Revelation Chapter 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.
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.
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.
4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
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.
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.
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.
8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
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.
10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
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.
12 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
John saw the “fallen” angel satan, not lucifer, on his way down to man. How belittling this must be for him since he refuses to serve man. Given a key to unlock hell and those fallen angels contained in it. Woe! Dr. Death is here with restrictions though. Should remind us of the Book of Job.
The locust season is five months long, usually April to September, or Passover to the Feast of Tabernacles. This is the shortening of days Yeshua prophesied about for the elects sake. So the seven year tribulation is reduced to only five months. Praise God! Passover 2016 is Friday, April 22nd to Saturday, April 30th.
Their king, no matter what role he is playing, be it Abandon or Apollyon, is the devil. Our King of Kings or Lord of Lords, whether He be Yeshua or Jesus, is God’s Salvation. Yeshua defeated death, that is to say the devil, at the Cross! Accepting Him is a free gift if we chose.
The sinners prayer is in Romans 10:9:
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Repent and be baptized! Receive the Holy Spirit so the Sealing can be in our foreheads. As the blood of the lambs were put on the doorposts so the death angel would passover, so to will the Blood of the Lamb, Yeshua, make the death angel passover us today.
God Bless you and yours
