Revelation 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.

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.

10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.

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.

12 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.

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.

17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.

18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.

19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.

20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

  1. 20. And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

    21. Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

    What will it take for men to repent? We can’t let pride keep us from admitting our faults and repenting before God. Let conviction work now, before He sends the tormentors to convince you, or worse: before it’s too late!

    Luke 16:29-31 KJV
    29. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

    30. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

    31. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

  2. The remaining men and women who weren’t killed by these weapons went on their merry way—didn’t change their way of life, didn’t quit worshiping demons, didn’t quit centering their lives around lumps of gold and silver and brass, hunks of stone and wood that couldn’t see or hear or move. There wasn’t a sign of a change of heart. They plunged right on in their murderous, occult, promiscuous, and thieving ways. (‭Revelation‬ ‭9‬:‭20-21‬ MSG)

    When will men repent and turn their hearts unto a merciful GOD!? So deep into sin, they’re blinded by the lusts. They no longer see that destruction is here.

    This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. (‭2 Timothy‬ ‭3‬:‭1-5‬ KJV)

  3. 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. (‭Revelation‬ ‭9‬:‭4‬ KJV)

    All I know is make sure your saved!!!

  4. Verses 20-21 MSG “The remaining men and women who weren’t killed by these weapons went on their merry way—didn’t change their way of life, didn’t quit worshiping demons, didn’t quit centering their lives around lumps of gold and silver and brass, hunks of stone and wood that couldn’t see or hear or move. There wasn’t a sign of a change of heart. They plunged right on in their murderous, occult, promiscuous, and thieving ways.” If your not living and worshiping God, then guess who you are a slave to??? The time is now to change your way of life and have a change of heart. God has always been there, do not allow the devil to lie to you; the Lord is waiting on you to call upon Him. JESUS today YOU will SAVE me.

  5. 20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

    21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

    It behooves men to repent of their ungodly deeds in this life, if we continue to ignore the word of God. Living life in our own way will only bring destruction to our life later. These men were called murders, fornicators, and thieves non of these are adjectives which men are happy to have applied to their titles.
    The worst of all is not these things, but they were worshipers of idols that could neither see, hear or walk. We should worship the Lord our God and him only should we worship.

  6. DANGEROUS WORDS AND HARMFUL PASTS

    18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
    19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.

    When the noisy, pesky, seeming harmless locusts reveal wrath. These things are huge and weird looking. Fire, smoke and brimstone. Their power is in their mouth and their tails, behind or past is harmful. Sounds to me like a cheap and painful imitation of the JESUS believer. We possess POWER in our MOUTHS with our words; to bind enemies, and call angels and our POWER is found in our past through he BLOOD of JESUS.

    Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

    The BLOOD of JESUS covers our past and we are VICTORIOUS through our faithful testimony of WORDS.

  7. 20, “And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:”
    21, “Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”

    Sad to say but true, there are some people who will never repent. They are so caught up in this world, their possessions, and their own hearts lusts, that they will not retain (to hold or keep in possession; to keep in mind) God in their knowledge or heart. No matter what happens, they refuse to repent and serve God.

    Acts 17: 29-30 says, “Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but NOW commendeth all men every where to REPENT.”

    God is no longer winking at ignorance, but NOW IS THE TIME TO REPENT!

  8. 21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

    Now, according to Bro. Merriman taught us they can not enter into the Kingdom of God unless he first repent and get baptist in Jesus Name for the forgiveness of all their sins and they shall all received the promise of the Holy Ghost.

  9. 1 Then the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen to earth from the sky, and he was given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit.

    A bottomless pit, the feeling of falling and not being able to control yourself. At times, we may feel like we are in a bottomless pit when things are not going our way. It feels like one trial after another, these trials just keep coming with no end in site. Let us not forget, God can bring us out of the pit. Let continue to pray always and rejoice always!

  10. 20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

    21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

    It hurts my heart to know that in the last days after the plagues, there will be men that will still not repent. Through the torture will not cry out to the one true God, but to idols.

  11. 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.

    The pleasures of sin are only for a season, then the end cometh. People are fulfilling the lust of the carnal man in our society today, but the day will come when they will not be satisfied with those pleasures, but will bring torture upon themselves by their own actions.

    The path that we chose now determines our destiny in years to come. I chose to pick up my cross and follow Him!

  12. 20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

    21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

    Repentance is what all of us need today and everyday in our walk with God. If we do not repent and ask God to forgive us of our sins, then he’s not gonna accept us into his kingdom. Noone is perfect which is why we need forgiveness always from God who is willing to give it to us if we just seek his face and show ourselves wanting to turn from our sinful nature.

  13. 13 Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice speaking from the four horns of the gold altar that stands in the presence of God. 14 And the voice said to the sixth angel who held the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great Euphrates River.” 15 Then the four angels who had been prepared for this hour and day and month and year were turned loose to kill one-third of all the people on earth. (NLT)

    Notice the chain of events:

    1.) They heard a voice first
    2.) Then the angels were released

    The power of all of our enemies are restrained until God gives the Word to have them loosed. He is in complete control.He doesn’t allow anything to happen without a purpose and according to His Will.

  14. 20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

    21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

    We must never be so stubborn to not as God for forgiveness. Even through the torturing and everything that was going wrong, they still would not ask God for forgiveness. Sometimes we may have this attitude toward other people, where we do not believe we did wrong so why should we have to ask for forgiveness, but for God to forgive us we must first have and attitude of forgiveness toward others. Lord open people’s heart in these last days to repent before you now, before it is too late! Give them understanding that you are the only God by which we can be saved, that no idol can save the from eternity in hell!

  15. iLove to eat More Word

    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 UPON THEIR FOREHEADS.

    Compare to what happened in Ezekiel
    Ezekiel 9:4-5 KJV And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set “A MARK UPON THE FOREHEADS” of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. (5) And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:

    One thing we notice in both passages is that those that have the mark of God are spared from Gods wrath and those that do not have the mark of God are punished. The locusts in Revelation are going to punish those who do not possess the mark of God.

    The devil being the imitator that he is will attempt to mimic God and will put his mark upon mankind. This mark is called the mark of the beast. We can choose one or the other…The mark of God or the mark of the beast.

  16. 20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

    21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

    Anyone who allows sin to take over their life can find themselves in a predicament, sin can become a habit and soon your separated from God. We must be sure to steer away from sin and seek God!!

  17. And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
    21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

    Thank you Jesus that we know the truth. But we must stay strong until the end.

  18. And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts. (‭Revelation‬ ‭9‬:‭20-21‬ KJV)
    Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds: (‭Romans‬ ‭2‬:‭4-6‬ KJV)

  19. 20 But the people who did not die in these plagues still refused to repent of their evil deeds and turn to God. They continued to worship demons and idols made of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood—idols that can neither see nor hear nor walk! (NLT)

    What a shame to know that people will be so ignorant and stubborn to learn the salvation and truth of the oneness of God and how great He is.

    We must always keep ourselves in line with His word and insure that He is the very first one we turn to in times of trouble.

  20. And they did not repent of their murders or their witchcraft or their sexual immorality or their thefts. (‭Revelation‬ ‭9‬:‭21‬ NLT)

    It just hurts inside of me that all,I do to pray for these’s people,for I know they suffer through predicaments that they get there selves into but,for they don’t know that there is mighty God up in the mighty heavens that can do anything,for his children and even,for the things that are wrong in this world,for all they need is someone in this world to love them and care for them and but still they want repent,for there wrongs and,for their murders or their witchcraft or their sexual immorality of their thefts. In Jesus Name Amen!!!

  21. In this scripture, it is another depiction of what is to come in the near future. Judgement and God’s wrath will be administered to this earth. The importance of being saved or born again is definitely the most important factor here. Keeping you & your family in the Lamb’s Book of Life, and maintaining a daily walk & repentance. Be quick to confess, and have God search your heart, and reveal things to you. Make sure, you seek him for wisdom & understanding of all his word, and aspects in your life.

    “Be Blessed”…………………………………………………………………………………….

  22. Revelation 9:20 (NASB Strong’s)
    20 The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk;

    The word repent here is the same one in Acts 2 where Peter commands us to repent of all of our sins.

    The question that comes to mind is how much does it take for someone to repent. God here allows pain, torment, and agony all in hopes that they will repent and even after this turmoil they still refused.

    God help us to never get to the point where even tragedy cannot sway us towards repentance.

  23. Rev 9:20-21
    20 The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands nor give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk, 21 nor did they repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.
    (ESV)

    Now days this world has a lot of idols and God’s and people are more into their carnality and own desires that it closes their minds and hearts to God’s Word and His Spirit. Which is why we must always be in unity with God’s Spirit and continue to preach and teach His commandments and be persistent in taking the Gospel to those that are lost. There is still a hunger for God in this world, we must keep going and don’t let anything stop us. MORE FOUR40!

  24. 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.

    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.

  25. We may not understand everything we read, but we must trust God enough at his word. His word declares the truth. Let us declare his word.

  26. “And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.” The word of Jesus (God) is very clear, therefore one would be wise to seek the Lord (Jesus) while one can. Dear God, remove the scales from our eyes; “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done”. In God we trust! What a mighty God we serve! Thank God for his word. God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  27. But the people who did not die in these plagues still refused to repent of their evil deeds and turn to God. They continued to worship demons and idols made of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood—idols that can neither see nor hear nor walk! And they did not repent of their murders or their witchcraft or their sexual immorality or their thefts. (‭Revelation‬ ‭9‬:‭20-21‬ NLT)

    The time to repent from your wicked ways is NOW!!! We are never promised tomorrow. God has given us all the opportunity to repent and live in Him. Do not be a fool like the ones in the verses above. Choosing to remain in sin is the same as you running to the devil with open arms. REPENT!!!

  28. The star that fell from heaven and the locust from the abyss

    5. The opening of the bottomless pit by a star that has fallen from heaven to earth, resulting in the demonic torment of human beings, the demons being likened to locust with the stinging of tails of scorpions. Irvine Baxter interprets this to be the Gulf War in the 90’s.

    It is very likely that the star that fell from heaven is Satan himself. Experts on this subject have a variety of opinions. Whoever or whatever the star is, it releases locusts from the abyss. It is very likely that they are demons. Jewish mythology associated the fall of humanity with demonic relations/unions and women (Gen 6:4, 1 Enoch 6-16: 86-88; 2 Baruch 56-12-13). For this sin these demons were confined to the abyss (1 Enouch 18:12-16; 2 Pet 2:4; Jude 6).

    This vision seems to indicate the release of these demons to torment some of those on Earth. It is important to note that they are given (power/authority) and that they have none of their own.

  29. 20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

    21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

    Jesus help us to keep a repented spirit

  30. 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.

    When I see this verse I am reminded of Lucifer and his great fall from heaven. He had the keys to the bottonless pit. However, when Jesus died he took those keys from his hands and resurrected so that we could do the same. So that those who have His seal, His Holy Spirit will be able to rise with Him when he calls us home.

    1 Cor 15:54 “Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die,j this Scripture will be fulfilled: “Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?”56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. 57 But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

  31. Revelation 9: 3-5

    How sad is going to be for those people who stay in the When the Rapture takes place.
    This verses say how some people are going to be tormented.
    Let us ALWAYS give ourselves fully to the will of God, so that he find us worthy to go with him on the Rapture. I wouldn’t like to be here and have to be tormented KNOWING the truth TODAY when we still have the time to change our lives.

  32. v 20-21 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood : which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
    Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

    The fact that these people refuse to repent and respond to GOD’S warnings shows… Their self- will. In that day we will have no justication to blame GOD because HE has made every provision for our salvation.
    Any thing that we do, we must do while time remains because eternity has no exist doors.

  33. 20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

    21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

    Repent… Many still on those days and after seing all that will happen chose still to live lives carelessly without any regards to God. If they would just for one moment get the eyes of themselves and look at how much God loves everyone. We must pray that the scales fall from the people’s eyes and that the light of Jesus may shine through giving revelation.

  34. 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.

    This sounds like a helicopter or jet. I can only imagine John being from a time that had only primitive technology having a peek into the future. How it was hard for him to explain what he was seeing based on the knowledge he had from his time. Some of these things can seem ridiculous that he is trying to explain until you put yourself in his time. How would you explain what a helicopter look like if you have never seen anything but insects and birds fly?

  35. Fifth angel !!!! 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. Luke 8 : 31 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. 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. Exod. 10 : 4 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. Exod. 12 : 23 Rev. 6 : 6 Praise the Lord !!!! I have the victory !!!!

  36. And in those days people will seek death and will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them. (‭Revelation‬ ‭9‬:‭6‬ ESV)

    This will be a sad day. What great torment to try to escape for reality and find nothing.
