IN THE FIRST 4 TRUMPET JUDGMENTS NATURE WAS USED IN SUPERNATURAL WAYS TO PUNISH REBELLIOUS BEHAVIOUR (LIKE IN EGYPT). BUT TODAY IN CHAPTER 9 THE SOURCE OF YAHUSHA'S JUDGMENTS TAKES A GIANT SHIFT FROM NATURE TO SPIRITS.
WITH TRUMPET 5 THE NATURAL WILL GIVE WAY TO THE SPIRITUAL. AND IN SCRIPTURE, WHENEVER THE SPIRITUAL REALM BEGINS TO DOMINATE THE STORY, THE WORDS DESCRIBING THE SCENE BECOME VERY COSMIC, AS THE AUTHOR SEEKS TO DESCRIBE SPIRITUAL OR INVISIBLE EVENTS USING EASY, RECOGNISABLE, EVERYDAY CREATURES OR THINGS IN THE NATURAL. THEREFORE WE MUST LOOK AT EVERYTHING IN THE ABSTRACT.
REV 9: 1And when the 5th Angel blasted his Trumpet, I saw a star that had fallen to earth, from the Heaven. And the key to the pit of the deep was given to it.
WHAT IS THIS STAR?
( that has already fallen to the earth from heaven )
d) JUST A STAR
ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN THIS EARTH IS BY THE POWER OF YAHUSHA, SO THIS `STAR' NEEDED TO BE GIVEN THE KEY (AUTHORITY) FROM YAHUSHA, TO OPEN THE PIT OF THE DEEP.
"ALL AUTHORITY IN HEAVEN AND EARTH IS GIVEN TO ME." MATT 28
THE BOTTOMLESS PIT IS THE ABYSS, THE PIT OF THE DEEP, THE SHAFT INTO A SPIRITUAL HOLDING CELL OR PRISON FOR EVIL SPIRITS. HERE THEY ARE CONFINED UNTIL THE DAY OF JUDGMENT. MANY DEMONS ARE INDEED FREE UPON THE EARTH RIGHT NOW (AS IS SATAN) BUT MANY MORE ARE BOUND UP IN THIS DEEP FORTRESS.
WHAT IS THE PIT OF THE DEEP?
( ie. 'the bottomless pit' )
b) THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH
c) A SPIRITUAL PRISON
d) PINA'S BEDROOM
2 PET 2:4"FOR YAHUAH DIDN'T SPARE THE ANGELS WHO SINNED, BUT CAST THEM INTO THE DARK PITS OF THE DEEP TO BE KEPT UNTIL THE TIME OF JUDGMENT".
THIS IS THE SAME PLACE YAHUAH BANISHED THE WICKED SPIRITS THAT HAD SEX WITH THE WOMEN, CAUSING THE DEFORMED NEPHILIM GIANTS BEFORE THE FLOOD AND THIS IS WHERE SATAN AND HIS MINIONS WILL BE BOUND FOR 1000 YEARS AFTER YAHUSHA'S RETURN. IT IS NOT A PHYSICAL PLACE (LITERALLY IN THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH) IT IS A SPIRITUAL ALCATRAZ FOR EVIL SPIRITS.
2And he opened the pit of the deep, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace. And the sun was darkened, also the air, because of the smoke of the pit.
3And out of the smoke locusts came into the earth, and authority was given to them, just as the scorpions of the earth possess authority.
4And they were told not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those people who don’t have the seal of Yahuah upon their foreheads. 5And they were told not to kill them, but to torture them for five months. And their torture was like the agony of a scorpion when it stings a man.
MOST OF THE LITERAL PLAGUES IN EGYPT ARE REPEATED HERE IN REVELATION. HOWEVER THESE LOCUSTS DON'T TOUCH THE GRASS OR THE TREES. THEY HAVE A KING OVER THEM AND ONLY ATTACK UNSEALED PEOPLE. SO THESE ARE NOT ACTUAL LOCUSTS BUT SOME LOCUSTS OF A SPIRITUAL NATURE - LIKE DEMON-LOCUSTS LET LOOSEN FROM THE PIT OF THE DEEP.
YAHUSHA TOLD US WE COULD TREAD ON SERPENTS AND SCORPIONS AND NOT BE HARMED. WE WILL HAVE POWERS OVER ALL THE FORCES OF THE ENEMY. YISHARAL WAS PROTECTED IN EGYPT, YAHUSHA WAS PROTECTED FROM EVERY DEMON ATTACK WHILE ON EARTH, AS WERE PAUL AND THE OTHER FOLLOWERS. THE DEMON SPIRITS KNOW WHO BELONG TO YAHUSHA (SEALED) AND THEY ARE FORBIDDEN TO TOUCH THEM.
LOCUSTS ARE SYMBOLIC OF DEMON SPIRITS, AND JUST AS THE LITERAL LOCUSTS DESTROYED EGYPT, THESE DEMON-LOCUSTS WILL TORTURE MANKIND. BUT THEIR POWER IS LIMITED, HAVING BEEN GIVEN THEIR AUTHORITY FROM YAHUSHA. THE STING OF A SCORPION IS FAR WORSE THAN A BEE-STING, PRODUCING EXCRUCIATING PAIN. IT IS SHEER-TORMENT AND THESE DEMONS ARE GIVEN PERMISSION BY YAHUSHA TO DO IT TO MANKIND!
6And in those days men will seek death and won’t find it. And they will cry out to die, but death will flee from them.
THEY REFUSE TO REPENT AND CAN'T EVEN COMMIT SUICIDE, BUT HAVE TO SUFFER TORMENT.
THEY WISH THEY COULD DIE, BUT THE STING ISN'T LETHAL ENOUGH TO CAUSE DEATH. WHILE PEOPLE WILL STILL DIE FROM NATURAL CAUSES, THE STINGS FROM THESE LOCUSTS DO NOT BRING ON DEATH. HOWEVER NO KIND OF DRUG SEEMS TO STOP THE PAIN, SO THESE PEOPLE WANT TO DIE BUT DON'T HAVE THE COURAGE TO TAKE THEIR OWN LIVES. THEY ARE SO AFRAID OF DEATH THAT THEY MAKE THE CHOICE TO GO ON LIVING INDEFINITELY WITH HORRIFIC PAIN. ONLY YAHUSHA HAS THE POWER OVER LIFE AND DEATH, NOT MAN!
7And the locusts looked like horses prepared for battle, and on their heads were crowns like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. 8And they had hair like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. 9And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots of many horses running into battle.
SO NOW THAT WE KNOW THESE LOCUSTS ARE ACTUALLY DEMONS (AND THE MINDSETS THEY HAVE ESTABLISHED THROUGHOUT ALL TIME), LET'S SEE HOW JOHN DESCRIBES THEM :
10And they have tails like scorpions, and stings. And in their tails is their authority to harm men for five months*.
* AVERAGE LIFESPAN OF A LOCUST
LOCUSTS: LET'S GO ABSTRACT !
11And they have a king over them, the Angel of the pit of the deep, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek is Apollyon. 12The first woe is past. See, two woes are still coming after this!
NATURAL LOCUSTS HAVE NO KING, BUT THESE DEMONS DO, AND HIS NAME MEANS `DESTROYER'IN ALL LANGUAGES! SATAN IS THE DESTROYER OF MANKIND AND THE ORIGINATOR OF ALL WARS, BOTH IN HEAVEN AND EARTH. HE IS NEVER AT REST UNLESS HE IS DESTROYING SOMEONE. HE COMES TO ROB, KILL AND DESTROY (JN 12). DEMONS SEEK TO INHABIT HUMAN BODIES, EVEN ENTERING ANIMALS IF A HUMAN IS NOT AVAILABLE. EVIL SPIRITS ARE UNCLEAN, WICKED, VICIOUS AND TORMENTING. THEY DAMAGE THE BODIES AND MINDS OF MEN. IN THE LAST DAYS MANKIND WILL REFUSE TO TURN FROM THEIR DEMON-WORSHIP, SO YAHUSHA PERMITS (EVEN ENCOURAGES) THESE SAME DEMONS TO TORMENT MANKIND WITH EXCRUCIATING PAIN.
Anyone who wants to entertain demon thoughts will be handed over to them. The time for mercy is finished, the door has been shut. Only judgment remains. It's time to become perfected and ready!
