Discussion for Revelation 9

  • Sabbathkeeper
    All of Revelation is chronological AND in a chiasm structure. (The old way of poetry), and in this period of time, the locust represent the Ottoman Empire and Islam, which the last 5 mos(150 yrs) ended around 1840. The number of the "horsemen" are demons that came out of the bottomless pit. The same ones conjoured by Rome in the ecumenical movement. Expect more decay in truth because of it.
  • Word
    Last stage of locust will be disguised as ministers of light, preachers and they will be preaching come to Jesus but it's instead of Christ not our Christ. They will tell you we are a widow no longer our husband has came home. When you see a supernatural being in Jerusalem claiming he is God store your food up pay bills 3 months and wait for the events to unfold and then 7th trump fire hail hit.
  • Word
    The scriptures tell the day of the Lord is coming and that the locust are swarming just before and I think that swarming from Egypt to Syria to Iran is happening and 2 Theesalonins 2 tells us exactly what will happen and that day will not happen until Satan, the son of perdition stands in Jerusalem claiming he is God I bet he even preaches he will fly you Away. Rome and man made ideas of whatever?
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Religions you should care about and watch very carefully because the 5 mos you THINK anti-christ will reign came directly from Rome so that you wouldn't see that since 1500 , every protestant on the face of the planet knew she is the anti-Christ. All that changed around 1900 as no one knows it anymore and believe myths like that. Wound healed. It came from rome.
  • Lucy
    I think is a serious revelation and all believers need to be very careful with the lives we live here on this earth because all that are happening clearly indicate that the days of tortures and pain are very near so should all seek first the kingdom of heaven and everything shall be added unto us.Amen
  • Word
    Religions I don't care about. Satan as antichrist will be here for 5 months It was shorten by God 4 the elect sake. Truth the vile one which is only Satan in book of Daniel takes over with peace and flatteries and tells everyone they will have prosperity and all you have to do is worship him because he sits in Jerusalem and says he is God and he has powers and does tricks that look real enough.
