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.

    Why did sin not enter the world when Eve sinned?
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 9:7
    Rich, could you clarify? I believe that the sin nature did find its root when Eve (& Adam) sinned against God through disobedience. And through them, sin was passed onto all of us (Romans 5:12): "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned".
  • Rich - in Reply on Revelation 9:7
    The sin of Eve did not cause a problem.

    It was only a problem when Adam sinned.

  • Douglas Kiby on Revelation 9:7
    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.
