When the sixth angel blows his trumpet, a war like has never been seen before will begin. It will happen by way of four angels that are released from their chains. They were kept in captivity until this day. Their purpose is to kill and destroy. These fierce beings will go forth until a third part of the earth’s population is killed. They come with two hundred million horsemen. If they are really horses with lions heads that breath fire, it is to be seen. However, they could be crazy land-made vehicles like in the army but much worse. You know that the armies in all the world will fight against it, but also lose in a bloody mess. These verses read, “and the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 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. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. 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.” (Revelation 9:13-17) Wow! So much death.
We learn people were killed at this time because of the fire, smoke, and brimstone, which came out from their mouths. Again, this could be a heavenly-like vehicle that fires this out upon people on earth. It mentions that they had tails like serpents also, which would sting and catch people while killing them. Wow, oh wow. This is not a time to be alive on earth. In saying this, John wrote, “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. 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. 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 9:18-21) Who were those that died in these times? People who did not repent of their evil acts. God knew they worshipped idols, as we can see in the Catholic Church, Buddhism and others. Others were caught up in murder, sorcery, fornication, and theft. Fornication also being pornography, abortion based on sex outside of marriage, homosexuality, and more. So repent. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people who say they believe in You now will not have to go through the most difficult part of the great tribulation. So much death and destruction are set to take place on the earth and I pray that You will spare Your people from it. Unfortunately, people have free agency and have the power to stay in the faith or walk away from it. I wish I could keep people believing and follow You, Jesus, but I know that this is not possible. So I plead this day and the rest of my days for people to endure in the faith. Please, my friends, don’t forget Your first love. You will regret it if you leave Jesus in death. Lord, You have shown me what hell looks like and it kills me inside to know that many people there are people who once knew and loved You. I wish I could take these people from this place of torment, but they did this to themselves. They forgot about the importance of repentance and put it off. And I know that some people will have to suffer in the great tribulation, while missing the rapture, all because they justified their sins over time. So I call them out, as You are calling them, Jesus. Come out from among them. Be ye separate and come to Jesus for salvation. Yes, Lord, Your arms are wide open to receive even the most vile of sinners. I was one of them for most of my life until You came and rescued me. I was under the bondage of my own man-made beliefs and sin. You took a wretched person like me and transformed me in the Holy Spirit. Thank You, Lord. I give You praise this day and forever. I love You. Amen.
