    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
    Thanks - so obvious, guess this is why I need an explanation - duh!
  • Kay - in Reply on Revelation 9:18
    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.

    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
  • 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

    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
    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.

    Now, as the 's go forward with their diabolical v@x/gene editing rollout.....

    We may now see what the sting is, the jab?

    and --

    Knowing then, the ones, becoming spike protein factories, causingCovaids, will have no natural immune system to fight the next wild virus that comes along.

    The blood clotting is another issue, strokes and heart problems etc.

    The prions issue, is yet another concern.

    Could the possibility of contracting dementia, or ALS, or Parkinson's disease, be why the CDC has warned about the zombie apocalypse for years now? Not kidding -look it up!

    An agonizing death may come about, whereas people may wish for their death.

    Toss DNA and CERNbringing giants back? Is that too bizarre, when Congress just voted, that it's OK to put a human embryo into an animal?

  • Simon on Revelation 9
    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:

    ( Revelation 9:1-11) fifth 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.

    Right now, over the area of the Euphrates, in the area that we know as Iraq, the area where the Garden of Eden was before the flood, these angels are bound.

    There are four angels, and notice that they are put there by God, prepared for the very day, month, year, and the very hour when God summons them to slay or kill a third part of men.
  • Herbert on Revelation 9
    Here in Chapter 9:11, why were the four angels bound in the River Eupharties?
  • Wayne B on Revelation 9
    I've been hearing about a massive super hadron collider in the EU built underground that is 7 miles in diameter. It was designed to try to open another "parallel dimension" by slamming protons together at a very high rate of speed to 'create a big bang environment with a goal of sending something from ours into this other dimension, but also possibly bringing something from the other dimension into ours. It is called CERN. They have their "GOD" Shiva statue in the entryway and they also worship abbadon/appolyon. I feel like they are 'possibly' trying to open the "pit" (or they are the 'vehicle') to open the bottomless pit. Has anyone done any research into this? VERY strange to me.....
  • Andrew Sarkkinen on Revelation 9:18
    Paula Price, I've heard that music, whether or not in church, can suppress repentance. It can also suppress a guilty conscience, which is why King Saul ordered David to play music. It says when David played, the evil spirit from God (aka, guilty conscience) would leave him. It might even suppress other manifestations of the Holy Spirit.

    These are not the 4 horseman. These are the army used to destroy Mystery Babylon and the Babylonian system within 1 hour. It's not a standing army, rather 200 mega ton hypersonic missiles; TNT. Compare with Joel 2:4-11 day of The Lord description of these weapons.

    This is not in reference to Rev 9 v7 but Luke 1
  • Luke 1 v 30 ,31,32,33,34,35

    These verses clarify who Jesus is . And when he began as the Christ .

    God manifested in the flesh .

    Let's not spiritualize Jesus into something else , but except the biblical record shown in Luke ch 1 and other places in the Bible that give this record .

    1 John 4 v 1,2,3...
