Wesley's Notes for Revelation 9:7

9:7 And the appearances - This description suits a people neither throughly civilized, nor entirely savage; and such were the Persians of that age. Of the locusts are like horses - With their riders. The Persians excelled in horsemanship. And on their heads are as it were crowns - Turbans. And their faces are as the faces of men - Friendly and agreeable.

 

People's Bible Notes for Revelation 9:7

Re 9:7 And the shapes of the locusts [were] like unto horses prepared unto battle. The appearance of the locusts is described. They represent armies of horsemen. And on their heads [were] as it were crowns like gold. There was an appearance like golden crowns. An array of men wearing yellow turbans would have such an appearance. And their faces [were] as the faces of men. Faces covered with beard. Roman soldiers wore no beard, hence the beards would be a striking feature.

"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." (Revelation 9:7)

These locusts come out of the bottomless pit. Other places in Revelation the lake of fire is described as "a lake of fire burning with brimstone." Brimstone being another word for sulphur.

The bottomless pit is described in Revelation 9:2, "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."

Later we see these locusts "and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold..." I found something interesting. I'm not saying anything more than I found it interesting. When the bottomless pit is opened smoke arose out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace, and these locusts came out of this smoke. They have "as it were crowns like gold on their head."

Look up "sulphur" and look at the structure of the cyclcooctasulfur molecule.

I just found that to be very interesting.
