FIFTH TRUMPET FIFTH VIAL
Rev. 9:1 “And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.”
Rev. 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.”
Rev. 9:3 “And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.”
Rev. 9:4 “And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.”
Rev. 9:5 “And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.”
Rev. 9:6 “And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.”
Rev. 9:7 “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.”
Rev. 9:8 “And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.”
Rev. 9:9 “And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.”
Rev. 9:10 “And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.”
Rev. 9:11 “And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”
Rev. 9:12 “One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes (years) more hereafter.”
Rev. 16:10 “And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast (Man of Sin); and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain.”
Rev. 16:11 “And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.”
My goodness, what does this sound like? Maybe a highly dramatized scene from a movie? No. Again, God uses symbols. You may ask “Why?” I have found that to be able to understand the meaning of the symbols, I had to read the whole Bible and know the direction of the Holy Spirit. Mankind, in itself without the Holy Spirit to guide them, becomes only wise men “of the world.” Without the anointing (Wisdom), knowledge is but foolishness to God. To know Revelation, I have found that God’s Spirit will take you on a long, full, rewarding trip from the beginning to the end. Alpha and Omega, the first and the last.
Did you notice how the first verse in this fifth Trumpet shows a star falling to earth with the keys to the bottomless pit? This particular “star’ is Christ. But did you notice, scriptures said the demons had an angel over them also. So be aware, not all angles are the good guys.
Rev. 20:1 “And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.”
Rev. 1:17 “And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:”
Rev. 1:18 “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”
Christ has the keys, not Satan, and the bottomless pit is speaking of Hades (Hell). Where it refers to “smoke coming out of the pit that will darken the sun and the sky” – is referring to demon spirits who will be set loose for this period of time. But remember, they are spirits, and for them to function, to walk to and fro upon the earth, they have to take up their abode in someone.
Jude 1:6 “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
These particular spirits that didn’t keep their own habitation were the sons of God, the fallen angels who were part of the one-third who fell with Satan when he was cast out of heaven the first time. These particular demons are not the ones that are reserved for the sixth year. The ones for now will not be quite as vicious. At this particular time they are not to kill, but only torment for five months the ones who blasphemed God of heaven because of their pains and their sores who would not change their ways. These are men and women who take their own kind, men with men and woman with woman having sex. To God its an abomination.
Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination:
Romans 1:21 …when they knew God they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Roman 1:22… Professing them selves to be wise, they became fools,
Roman 1: 24…God gave them up to uncleanness through the lust of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:
Roman 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever
Roman 1:26..For this cause their woman did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Roman 1:27..And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of women, burned in their lust one to another ; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of there error which was meet.
Roman 1:28.. And as they did no like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind.
There’s a reason why God said these people were to be tormented for only five months at this time. Could it be He is giving them one more chance to repent. Only they will be tormented. They will want to die but it will not kill them. They will bite their tongues for the pain, but still will not repent
If any one knows Bible history, Sodom was destroyed because of this life style that is coming upon our land more and more every day. God is not going to tolerate it much longer. When God was referring to us (Daughter of His People) in Lam.4;5, the time when the attack in N.Y. took place, He said the punishment of the attack will be greater than the punishment of the sin of Sodom that was overthrown as in a moment. Scriptures show they will curse God instead, for their pain and repent not for their acts of sin.
If you know any one or a member of your family that lives that life style, show them these scriptures. What God say’s, the world should listen. The sins of mankind is what Christ went to the cross for. For God sakes He suffered enough. Don’t wait till the pain comes, call on Jesus Christ, He will hear you.
Don’t make God sorry he ever created mankind again, as when the Sons of God took the daughter of men and created Giants upon the land.
Gen. 6:2 “That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.”
Gen. 6:4 “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them…”
Gen. 6:6 “And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.”
At the time when there were giants upon the earth, there was a lot of evil in the world, so much so that God was sorry He ever made man. Remember in the first four Seals; how it showed there are four different spirits that walk to and fro upon the earth? For them to walk to and fro they will have to enter into someone. You either have the spirit of Christ or the spirit of the Anti-Christ. When you are born, you have your own spirit, but you are born into the world of sin (a sin nature). Satan is prince of this world, so you must accept Christ’s spirit when you are at an age of accountability. You cannot stay in the spirit you were born into. You must choose. What I am saying is, when these fallen angels are set loose out of the bottomless pit, they will dwell in men: people they choose that have not accepted Christ and will not; wicked demon spirits referred to as locusts, another symbol, but a very effective one, meaning, armies of men.
During the time of the Pharaoh’s when the plagues were upon the people and the land, one of the plagues was literal locusts that darkened the sky by the millions, stripping the land and leaving it bare. From then on, God used the word (locust) as a symbol to show how war strips the land and kills everything in its path.
Joel 2:25 “And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.”
Joel 1:4 and Amos 4:9 also show that the word (locust) is used as a figurative illustration of war, what the end results will be. When John gives the description of the locusts, he describes them like horses running to battle, having faces of men and hair like women. Since John was to write everything he saw before the day of the Lord and after that day, he sees this battle in a vision describing a war that he had not seen before and was not familiar with.
When he refers to breastplates of iron and wings as chariots and tails of scorpions, he is no doubt describing airplanes, helicopters, tanks, etc. But what does he mean when he sees them with hair as women? In Isaiah 4:1 and 13:12, the Word speaks of man becoming more precious than gold during this period of time. Seven women will take hold of one man, saying, “We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel; only let us be called by thy name to take away our reproach.” This is why John sees in his vision warriors with hair as women.
Already women are in the armed forces and on the front line, more so in the foreign countries. With this being the fifth year and Scriptures showing that more than one- third of men will die from the plagues and the wars that will erupt at this period of time, you can see the armies will have to be a good percentage of women.
Even today women want babies out of wedlock. They do not want the man, only his name. Sad to say many don’t even want their names. Then there is also the man who wants the woman, but won’t give her his name or want the child if they have one. So, you can see Bible Scriptures are being fulfilled today. Satan is known by many names in the Bible. It is important that you know them and how to apply them. He is the king over these demons whose name in Hebrew is (Abaddon), but in Greek his name is (Apollyon), meaning, Destroyer.
Ex. 12:23 “For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come into your houses to smite you.”
Job 15:21 “A dreadful sound is in his ears: in prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him.”
Jer. 4:7 “The lion is come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way; he has gone forth from his place to make thy land desolate; and thy cities shall be laid waist, without an inhabitant.”
Now let’s pick up more Scriptures that fall in this fifth year. Look at your Chart. As you can tell there are none in the 11th and 12th Chapters, so let’s go to the 13th Chapter. Remember – in the 11th verse a False Prophet came on the scene right after the Temple was taken by the first Beast and started to play his role as a man of war. He will continue to do so, but God will now give him more power to play his part. God will hold Satan accountable and redeem the world.
Rev. 13:12 “And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, who’s deadly wound was healed.”
Rev. 13:13 “And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,”
Rev. 13:14 “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”
Rev. 13:15 “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”
Rev. 13:16 “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:”
Rev. 13:17 “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
Did you notice how this second Beast will come out of the earth where the first one will come out of a sea? Remember, “Sea” means nation, and “earth” probably means a place that is not a nation as yet, which could be the Palestine area. He will have the same power as the first Beast to deceive many by claiming supernatural powers. The wound to one of his seven heads will probably be Syria or Iran when Israel is attacked in the first year. Fire coming down from heaven is describing the war that will be taking place at that time. The invading armies will force the people to make an image of the Beast (Satan). They will worship him and if they don’t they will be killed. Notice how Satan will even speak through the Beast. If you are here at this time do not worship this man because you will be worshiping Satan; even though they will tell you to. Don’t take their mark if you are a merchant who buys and sells. If you are a servant of God you already have a mark. Spiritually speaking, when you become a child of God you are then marked; set apart. When you are sealed is right before you are taken home. Satan will try to deceive you here by insisting that you take his literal mark, but it will be only for the merchants of the earth that he will try to control, the same way when Satan was Prince in the world before his fall. He bartered then, trying to control nations which brought destruction to him – wanting the wealth of the world and wanting to be God.
Rev. 9:12 “One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.”
