Revelation 9


Smoke Out of the Pit
Revelation 9 from The Chronological Gospels

Apollyon – the Destroyer Revealed on Adar 15, Purim 

(Haman as the destroyer)

(1290 days to the marriage supper of the Lamb)

Fifth Trumpet

9:1 Then the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven to the earth. The messenger from the abyss was given a key, 2and he opened the abyss. There arose a smoke out of the pit like the smoke of an enormous furnace, and the sun and the sky were darkened because of the smoke. 3Out of the smoke of the pit flying locusts came down upon the earth, and they had the power to inflict pain, much like a scorpion. 4They were “commanded not to harm the grass, nor anything green, nor any tree; but only those men who do not have the seal of YHVH on their foreheads. 5They were ordered not to kill, but only to inflict pain for five months. Their “torment was like the pain inflicted when a scorpion strikes a man. 6In those days men will seek death but shall not find it. They will desire to die, but death will flee from them.

7Now, the appearance of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. It looked as if they had crowns on their heads – similar to crowns of gold. Their faces looked like the faces of men. 8They had hair, similar to the hair of women, and their teeth were like a lion’s. 9They had breastplates that looked like iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of many horse-drawn chariots running into battle. 10They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. They were given the authority to harm men for five months.

The Destroyer Revealed

11And they had a king over them, the messenger from the abyss, whose name in the Greek tongue is Apollyon, but in the Hebrew tongue his name is Abaddon – the Destroyer!

The First Woe Is Past

12One woe is past, and after this there come two more woes!

Sixth Trumpet

13The sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice coming from the four horns of the golden altar, which is before YHVH. 14The voice spoke to the sixth angel, who had the trumpet, “Loose the four angels who are restrained at the great river Euphrates.” 15And the four angels were loosed, who were prepared for that very hour, and day, and month, and year, to slay the third part of mankind – 16and the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand; I heard the number!{1} 17I saw horses in the vision, and those who sat on them had breastplates of three colors – fire, and jacinth, and brimstone.{1} The heads of the horses looked like the heads of lions, and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.”“18By these three elements were the third part of men killed – by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone{1} – which belched out of their mouths. 19Their power is in their mouths and also in their tails, for their tails that do the damage looked like serpents with smoking heads. 20Yet the rest of the men, who were not killed by these wounds, did not repent of the devious works of their hands. They continued to worship demons and their man-made idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and wood – those things which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk. 21Neither did they repent of their murders, nor their pharmakia,{1} nor their fornication, nor their thievery.”

{9:16.1} The army numbers 200 million, and there were not even 200 million men on planet Earth at the time John, Yochanan, received this revelation.

{9:17.1} A description of the colors on the breastplates – or perhaps the flags of the nations sending troops into battle – red, black, and white.

{9:18.1} Fire, smoke, and sulfur are three components of modern artillery fire.

{9:21.1} Rather than use the KJV translation sorceries, the transliteration of the Greek <farmakia> pharmakia is maintained and explained in its prophetic context in Revelation 18:23.
