The Fifth and The Sixth Trumpet Plagues
Revelation 9 is about the Fifth and Sixth Trumpet judgments that God pours out on the Earth and its inhabitants for their iniquities in the Tribulation. After the fifth angel blasted the sound of his trumpet, continued from Chapter 8, Angel Destroyer descended to earth and opened the abyss with a key. Out of the pit came thick smoke and out of the smoke came locusts, which symbolically represent an army of demons from the underworld. Angel Destroyer, their leader, commanded them not to destroy any green plant, which they are not really interested in because they are not literal locus, but they should torment those who are not saved, with Christ’s Spirit, for five months with something that has the same effect as being stung by a scorpion. The plague lasts for five months because it follows the pattern of the literal locus plague in Egypt and five months are the lifespan of a locust.
When the sixth angel blasted his trumpet sound, the four angels bound at the Euphrates River were released to kill one-third of corrupted humanity. Although four angels were released, John testifies of hearing the number of 200,000,000 mounted troops. The mounted troops are the third of heaven’s fallen angels who were cast out of heaven with the devil in the middle of the Satanic Trinity Beast Tribulation of the Saints and the world. When the sixth angel blasted his trumpet sound, God inspired these angels to kill one-third of the rebellious world with the plagues of fire, smoke and brimstone, which are forms of God’s judgment. God judged Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and burning sulfur, which is brimstone, in Genesis 19. God’s ultimate and final judgment is the “Lake of Fire” that burns with fire and brimstone (Rev 21:8). Unfortunately, after the remaining two-thirds of the evil world witnessed these plagues kill one-third of the sinful population, the judgment plagues still did not persuade the survivors to repent of their evil deeds.
I do not want anybody to be judged by God. This is why I teach the prophetic, fifth gospel of the Book of Revelation of Jesus so that people can be saved.
The Book of Revelation was written to seasoned Christians, who have an intimate relationship with King Jesus and who know His Word. The Revelation of King Jesus is the ultimate Bible book that completes everything we need to know about Christ so that our relationship can grow to the highest heights. This is why we study the fundamental books of the Bible, so that we can understand the revealed prophecies of King Jesus.
