    God used Scorpions because they have no stomach so they sting and clamp to their victim prey and shoot fluids inside them turning there victims backbone to mush and then they can do whatever they want to with them. These locust are coming to do that as a force upon us with long hair meaning gently as a soft spoken woman and they have breastplates just like the priest wore in the old days in the temple with 12 stones number of the tribes but these are made of iron meaning it makes it war to them to rip your soul away from you like a lion. There going to show first and they will be preaching for you to go worship their king over them antichrist or as it means instead of Christ. They will be here for 2 and a half months of that 5 months spoken of that the time was shorten from 7 years.

    It is the word of GOD and it must come to past if you do not accept Jesus as your LORD and SAVIOR this will happen to us.
  • Douglas Kiby for verse 7
    In this John was being literal with what the Lord showed him. These are actual insects, yet microscopic. These insects have internal mouths and eyes set above a nose looking. Its of a gold glittery color and its antannea are speed far out and they look sinister. All this is upon us now. Jesus told of all this that is happening now in Mark. Jesus was very concise in his telling of today's occurrences. When he gave it John and Daniel to tell theirs were more prose. Jesus didn't mix words in Mark.
