    Repent of your sins before the lord Jesus Christ and confess your sins before Jesus Christ and believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins at the cross.

    how many Christians will be saved during the rapture ? Read Revelation 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

    how do u turn ur life to Jesus? By acknowledging and confessing to the Lord that we are sinners in need of his salvation. Inviting him into our lives asking him to take over Nothing fancy nothing complicated

    1 John 1:9

    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    Romans 10:9 if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved

    BUT KNOW THIS once you make that confession of repentance there's a great celebration in heaven

    Jesus said, "I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents" ( Luke 15:10)

    Praise the Lord I pray the Lord your strength and guidance that he bless you and bring people around you that are after his own heart. God bless

    The Euphrates is drying up this very moment, and will be ready for the kings of the east to cross over, too invade Israel, Ezekiel 38, at the sixth trumpet, Luke 21:20-24. There are many articles, video about the Euphrates, look it up. It is not simply symbolic because it will happen on earth, and is happening right now. That alone should strengthen your faith in God. If purely symbolic, why would God have us be Watchman, observing the signs of the times, if there is nothing to see?

    "Satan and the locust armies are thrust upon the scene" is at the fifth trumpet, Revelation 9:1-11. I spy the fifth trumpet allegory when America attacked itself and rushed off the kill those without the seal of God in their foreheads (Muslims). If these are indeed the end-times, then all of the signs should reveal themselves in broad daylight. Knowing the narrative inside and out is critical.

    The saints are sealed before the sixth trumpet, not the fifth.

    It is the man of sin, anti-christ, who places the abomination of desolation at the sixth trumpet. You said it well with your allegoric slain dragon. The sons of Joseph are going to experience 539 BC again. All of Babylon's plagues come in one day, Revelation 18:8. It is similar to one that languishes from the effects of radiation, baldness and clean teeth.

    Olga , the physical drying up of the river has not to do with scripture . it's symbolic , the river Euphrates in scripture is symbolic for the divide between truth and confusion , babylon . The water separates lies and deception from the truth . when the river dries up so do all the lies and deception . nothing but truth remains and all it's biblical spiritual completion is cast upon mankind/earth . the verses you ask to be explained are of their own symbolic nature where we must be familiar with seals trumps vials and whats in them . in short , it's the brunt of the the great tribulation , when Satan and the locust armies are thrust upon the scene in an instant where a third part of man is slain by the dragons tail . the 6th vial poured out on the earth . but the tribulation had already begun back @ the woe of the 5th trump where all God's elect/grass were sealed .
  • Olga on Revelation 9 - 1 year ago
    I never was taught about revelation, chapter 9, 14 to verse 19. I believe that the Jehovah witnesses had a different version as they update the noble every ten years for their own benefit when it says not to add or take away any portion of the Bible. As I have not been to hoif with the noble, would someone kindly explain if this is relevant to the Euphrates river today and is this shyit has shrunk so much inlast 30 years.

    Thank you in advance for helping me and may God bless you.

    The 6th trump is when the antichrist comes to earth for 5 months. He will be convincing. He'll promise to wipe your debts clean. Why will I worry about earthly debts? Jesus comes on the 7th trump. The people who bow to the antichrist will sicken when they realize they've been deceived.

    It's most likely this Angel is Michael.

    Revelation 20:1 And I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain upon his hand

    Revelation 9: Fifth and sixth woes

    We sink perhaps into what is the most horrible part of the Tribulation here as the most people numerically likely die (1/3 listed in verse 18); and although there is complete destruction at Armageddon; and thereabouts with the scope of the earthquake and such along with the horror of ALL sea life dying; it will be relatively brief and Christ comes at last immediately after! It would seem that according to Revelation 11 the second woe (or sixth seal) is passed when the two Prophets are killed and then translated. This would protect them from the judgments here.

    The fifth trumpet involves an angel who some argue couldn't be Satan who fights with Michael and is cast out near this time because he couldn't be trusted with such a key. Nonetheless; there isn't any clear indication who if anyone forcefully puts these demons back in the abyss after the 5 month period given to them. Whatever the case; these clearly are demons. After 5 months of suffering; people will be well prepared to worship the Beast; especially if he claims and perhaps has authority to END this suffering; as well as apparently be resurrected from the dead.

    The sixth trumpet; of course involves angels as well (v. 14-15); some would say it symbolizes something else such as modern weaponry; but since God Himself brings it to pass we should take it at face value. One THIRD of all people die; but note verse 20-21 the rest who survived STILL didn't repent of their sins. Man at this point will have gone from hiding from Christ to more and more sin; and by the vials will be fighting against Christ at His return.

    In all this; God's ways are mysterious. Why does he drag this out so long; and not just destroy these rebels before this point? And why do men go on KNOWING THE END RESULT since they are ALREADY aware by the sixth seal of God and Christ at the judgment seat?

    No wonder Daniel got sick for 3 weeks considering these things. LORD give us strength also.

    Dear "T. Anderson", I actually think that many people are unfair to Trump, and hate it. And the Lord Himself will repay that injustice. Remember that there are many who love him too. And it is no wonder that then the media image of Trump. Always shows a picture when he makes some faces. Absolutely fantastic that they manage to snap the worst ones too! Many times i think is it a photo shop picture ? Should Trump wear a mask? I understand what you mean, but don't think so. We will probably see it clearly the day it appears. And in any case, I hope you're wrong.

    God bless u in Jesus name i love u i Christ Act 1
  • Doug - In Reply on Revelation 9 - 1 year ago
    When I read this chapter it seems to be a figure of when a minister of the gospel (star) becomes carnally minded in his teachings (falling from heaven to earth). Then smoke from the forces of Satan choke the life giving air and sun. Following the choking of truth comes locusts (false prophets). Nahum 3:17 would reference similar figures. I could go on..... but think spiritual figures of speech when you read Revelation and see it you see things differently. Chapter 8 when waters get polluted living organisms die. Sounds like new testament teachings.

    Rev 9;1-11 world war 2 5mo.5yrs angel was Hitler 6 Jews being jailed

    13-20 possible world war 3with the used fire ,and brimstone NUCLEAR BOMB

    21 says that after this tribulation man did not repent still worship the devil their murder and sorcery and Formication

    As in our present age.

    Where people are deceived in many things and only few are given the wisdom to understand

    The truth.

    As the dragon,the false spirit continue to spread lies and deception people will continue to die

    Missing the chance for salvation
  • T Levis - In Reply on Revelation 9:18 - 2 years ago
    I just wanted to reply, the locust didn't have power to kill. Revelation 9:3-6,10, it appears to give them time to repent from evil. Revelation 9:20,21, 2Peter 3:9, "The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but all should come to repentance." 2Peter 3:9-14,

    Oh dear brother, Joe!! How many times, as I've heard others share something from the Word of God -I've had Dthe same, "DOH...WHY didn't I see that?" moments! Ha ha! many times, as I've read through the Bible, I find verses that I completely forgot were in the Bible..though I've read them many times!!

    I agree with many who have said that there are NO 'stupid questions'. Asking is how we grow in wisdom and's all good! :)

    Be blessed in your pursuit of growing in God's Word, Joe.
  • Joe - In Reply on Revelation 9:18 - 2 years ago
    Thanks - so obvious, guess this is why I need an explanation - duh!
  • Kay - In Reply on Revelation 9:18 - 2 years ago
    Hi Joe,

    From what I understand, the answer is verse 17 b and 18 a, read together:

    ..."out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.

    18 By these three was the third part of men killed,"

    The 'three', then, are the fire, smoke, and brimstone, which did so much destruction.

  • Free - In Reply on Revelation 9:18 - 2 years ago
    Look at v.17 dear friend "Joe", (fire, smoke and sulfur). Stay blessed in Jesus Holy Name, love u in Christ. 2 Timothy 1:7
  • Joe on Revelation 9:18 - 2 years ago
    Vs 18 says "... these three". I do not understand because I see only two - locusts and horsemen. Will someone please explain to me?

  • ABADDON and APOLLYON__Revelation 9 - In Reply on Revelation 9 - 2 years ago

    In the Book of Revelation ( 9:1-11 ), when John sees his vision of the fifth trumpet blowing, a vast horde of demonic horsemen is seen arising from the newly opened abyss. They are sent forth to torment the unfortunate inhabitants of earth, but not to kill them. They have a ruler over them, called a king (basileia [basileiva]), the angel of the abyss, whose name is given in both Hebrew and Greek. In Hebrew it is Abaddon and in Greek Apollyon, both words meaning Destroyer or Destruction.

    The word only occurs once in the New Testament ( Rev 9:11 ) and five times in the Old Testament ( Job 26:6 ; 28:22 ; 31:12 ; Psalm 88:11 ; Prov 15:11 ). In Psalm 88:11 Destruction is parallel to the grave; in Job 26:6 and Proverbs 26:6 it is parallel to Sheol; in Job 28:22 it is parallel to Death. job 31:12 says sin is a fire that burns to destruction. So in the Old Testament Abaddon means the place of utter ruin, death, desolation, or destruction.

    The angel of the abyss is called Destruction or Destroyer because his task is to oversee the devastation of the inhabitants of the earth, although it is curious that his minions are allowed only to torture and not to kill. His identity is a matter of dispute. Some make him Satan himself, while others take him to be only one of Satan's many evil subordinates.

    "Russian media threatens Europe with 200 megaton nuclear 'doomsday' device" -Business Insider 1/15/19

    200 mega tons = "two hundred thousand thousand" tons = Revelation 9:16

    "The US has no defenses or countermeasures in place against the new weapon."

    "A Russian professor told a Russian paper that the new torpedo could create 1,300-1,600 foot high waves and wipe out all life nearly 1,000 miles inland with a purported 200 megaton nuclear warhead."

    "Russia can make the whole continent of Europe or North America go dark."

    "200 million guns are loaded, satan cries take aim" -CCR

    ( Revelation 9:13-16)

    13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

    14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.

    15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

    16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND THOUSAND: and I heard the number of them.

    Russia is a beast coming of age; it won't be held back.
  • The Lords Prayer is Powerful - In Reply on Revelation 9:6 - 2 years ago
    Fix your faith on God. Satan is terrified you'll quote the Lord's Prayer out loud. That spirit of fear will have to leave. "Deliver us from the evil..."

    Matthew 6

    Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

    9. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

    10. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

    11. Give us this day our daily bread.

    12. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

    13. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

    Use that energy to help other people remember this prayer. It's the words of Jesus, and all of heaven pauses to listen to you speak it.

  • Simon on Revelation 9 - 2 years ago
    The book of Revelation has 7 trumpets worth of war events. The last 3 trumpets are most important. They happen close together, and in our generation. It is my notion that the Revelation of Jesus Christ began in 1914.

    1st trumpet = WWI The Balfour Declaration

    2nd trumpet = WWII Jewish statehood

    3rd trumpet = Korea

    4th trumpet = Vietnam

    5th trumpet = 9-11-01

    6th trumpet America & Israel NWO nations fall to antichrist

    7th trumpet Messiah standing on Mount Olives

    The fifth trumpet gives way to the sixth seal that gives way to the sixth trumpet:

    Afghanistan war ends

    April 14, 2021, WASHINGTON (AP) - President Joe Biden said Wednesday he will withdraw remaining U.S. troops from the 20 year "forever war" in Afghanistan. His plan is to pull out all American forces numbering 2,500 - by this Sept. 11, the anniversary of the attacks.

    ( Isaiah 33:1) Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled; and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! when thou shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled; and when thou shalt make an end to deal treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee. (sixth trumpet warning)

    The sixth seal:

    ( Revelation 6:12-14) unfolds like a rolled up scroll. The two separate sixth seal events start with Revelation 6:13, then vs 14's "scroll", then to vs 12's earthquake, which triggers the day of the Lord. Logic stands that vs 14 must happen before vs 12, being that vs 12 signifies the iconic sixth trumpet, "the day of the Lord" battle. vs 17 verifies it. The sixth seal earthquake ushers in the sixth trumpet.

    ( Revelation 6:13) And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. (vs 14) And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. (vs 12) And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; (vs 17) For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

    ( Revelation 11:13-14) And in that hour there was a great earthquake ( Revelation 6:12), and a tenth of the city collapsed.... vs 14 The second woe is past....

    vs 13's great earthquake begins the second woe. Also, verses 13 & 14 are 3.5 years apart.
