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. 

satan is the one with this key. That one that leads those that will follow him into this pit of death. That evil one will be here very soon.  Will you know him when you see him? Do you have the seal of God?

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. 

Many are going to be blinded by his deceptions. We are about to see some amazing thing, but they will be things to deceive. Again! Do you have The Seal of God in your mind?

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. 

These are symbolic. These come to devour those with their guard down. These are the angels that follow satan. Same ones of Genesis 6.

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. 

Those that don't know these are the fallen angels and the FACT satan is here claiming to be Christ are those WITHOUT The Seal of God. If you don't know who comes first, you will be suckered in by these "locust". Get busy! Get in The Word and pray for understanding. The Truth is "The Seal of God". Do you have it?

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. 

They will deceive from the inside out. Locusts come out May- Sep. The true Tribulation will only last that long. God shortened it!  Matthew 24:22
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. 
I will also add, for those wanting more, turn to Joel 2.

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. 

Talk about a wakeup call. These will see just who they have been following the whole time. It had been satan claiming to be Christ Jesus.  These "Christians" just didn't have time for God's Word. They just thought they would be going on some ride because of what they had been told.

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. 

We know by now these "locust" are angels, here with their fake crowns to fool people into following their evil ways. They look just like me and you because we are made in the image of God and the angles. Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in [our image], after [our] likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. "Our" = God and the angels.

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

These "locust" = men will have "hair of women" = seem as gentle as most women are, but are destructive and ruthless going after your soul.

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. 

The breastplates are of the religious order. They will run after things to give the impression they come to help, when in fact they come to destroy. Many won't know the difference because they don't know the things of God. The world and the religious systems of today teach unity and coexisting. They teach many ways to heaven. They have set up the system of these locust and satan to come in and rule. We should have nothing to do with these people or these "locust" = fallen angels when they speak this garbage. Do you know the difference? 2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

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

When a scorpion stings, it injects poison that liquifies the inside so it can consume its victim = the angles will fool others from within. Remember, 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.  They will deceive from the inside out. Locusts come out May- Sep. The true Tribulation will only last that long. God shortened it!

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. 

"Abaddon" means "destroyer" and this is clearly satan. satan is the locus / scorpions = fallen angels king.

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, 

Our Father has given the call and the power is shown. Our Father has told us everything we need to know in order to stand.

14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 

The boundaries are open. satan walks right into Jerusalem like he owns it and the people of the earth will follow him believing he is their Christ.

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. 

When the way is open for the fallen angels to come, they are going to do just as they did before. Have you not read Gen. 6? Gen.6:4-5  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, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.  5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. The "sons of God" in The Old Testament are the angels of God. They chose to leave their place of habitation and go after women to have sex with them which created a giant race of hybrids. Ref. 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.  Hard for some of you to grasp this I'm sure, but study it and pray on it.

16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. 

satans forces have no real power over you that follow The Truth. Don't worry about this or anything for that matter.

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.  

This fire =lies that consume, smoke = cover or hide the truth of God's Word. Brimstone is going to result in destruction of their followers. Make sure this isn't you! Understand who they are and what they do. You can only do this by study. I pray you are!

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. 

We are not talking physical death, but spiritual, because remember God said in vs. 5, "they should not kill them", killing wouldn't fool anyone. satans after your soul, he could care less about your flesh. he knows his days are numbered and wants to take as many as he can with him.

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. 

AGAIN this is spiritual. "Mouth" = lies and that "tail" is liken to the poison as in a scorpion. Ref.  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. When a scorpion stings, it injects poison that liquefies the inside so it can consume its victim = the angles will fool others from within.

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: 

This "plague" = deception is here with more to come. Once your eyes are open to them, REPENT. Did you know the mark in the "right hand" = the work of satan? Many are taught it's a chip. That is you being suckered into the lies of satan. Do you see in this verse, "these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands" that's what it means. You doing the work of satan.

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

When you are telling them about your family member that just won't come around and believe it is Christ, when in FACT it's satan, you're bringing to them death = satan.
