Revelation 9 Bible Study

Welcome to – today we are going to study Revelation the 9th chapter (Revelation 9) and did a bit more into what most call a very mysterious book of the Bible. Are you ready…

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.

A star fell from heaven to the earth… and to him… noting this is an individual, a key to the bottomless pit was given.  The star is Satan, and the bottomless pit is militaries of the great beast.

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.

The bottomless pit was opened and John reports that smoke out of the pit filled the air, darkening the sun. What is this?

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.

Locusts came out of the smoke and they had power like scorpions!

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.

The locusts were commanded not to hurt the grass of the earth or anything green, but to afflict the men who are not sealed by God in their foreheads. The locusts are military subjects in war machines such as fighter jets implementing a chemical warfare.

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.

The locusts were instructed not to kill but to torture or torment. This tormenting was to last 5 months. John describes this torment like when a man is stricken by a scorpion!

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.

When this torment occurs, those afflicted by this will want to die, but will be unable to.

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.

This is why we said the locusts were fighter jets or military machinery, it is because John described them that way. They were like horses prepared for battle.

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.

This description was one of a military machine and the chemical flying out of the stinger tail gave them power 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.

The king over them was the angel or star of the bottomless pit, and this is Satan, the destroyer.

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.

Now the sixth angel sounded, and was instructed to loose the four angels, which were  holding back all out war in the world.

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.

A Third part of mankind on the earth will be slayed on this sixth trumpet. This is the Big War!

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

There were 200 million horsemen in this army and they were coming over the Euphrates from the east!

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.

Military! Military! Military!

Joel 3:9

Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:


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.

If we have 6 or 7 billion people on the earth, and one/third men; we have 2 Billion men and one/third of them will be destroyed in this war! That is over 665 Million men killed!

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.

They will be dealt with too! Repenting is key! However, some people have done so evil, they do not have the heart to repent for forgiveness.

    Ezekiel 2:6 And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though
    briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.

    Sometimes it sounds like scorpions are actually people. In revelation, they sound like children of Satan.
