Discussion for Revelation 9

    Luke 8:21 and he answered and said unto them my mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of GOD and do it

    Hey I thought we are all Christians here, no need in saying someone is clueless everyone has there own idea of what the scriptures tell them and there is no need to talk to your wife that way. I'm a bride and I wouldn't want anyone talking to me like that just because my opinion is different than theirs. I believe Daniel hasn't been opened yet and I'm right.
  • SabbathkeeperandWife
    The only thing even remotely parallel to anything Noah and 150 days was a flood. That ain't gonna happen again. Days are years prophetically. Even the clueless people are beginning to understand the 70 weeks of Daniel. Daniel has been unsealed over 150 years. A man used the 150 day prophecy and called the exact year the Ottomans fell. He is Josiah Fitch. Guessing misleads others
  • Word
    Noah's time fallen angels mixing with the women. Those sons of God that had left their first estate meaning heaven are fallen angels. In the end days, 1st tribulation it will be eating and drinking and the world will be in party time and the fallen angels will be doing the same with women. The world believes that Christ has returned and their husband has came home and they are a widow no longer.
  • Haakon Ragnskjold
    At least nobody here said the Locusts were helicoptors!
    Clue: The five months are a literal 150 days.
    Clue: It has nothing to do with the Ottoman Empire [nor anything found in history before the Days before the Flood].
    Clue: Reference the 150 days of Genesis 7:24.
    Clue: We are looking at something extremely ancient and extremely deadly from Noah's day that will be released at the End Time.
  • Sakana
    Clue to 5 months is v. 6, "in those days men seek death." Rev 6:15-17 they pray (seek) for mountains to fall on them (death). Why? Because Christ returns and they understand they've worshipped false Christ. So, in those days (while locust are here - 5 months), Christ returns. Time HAS been shortened (Mark 13:20). Cannot be 3.5 yrs. Original length used in Rev to reference Daniel.
