Welcome back to JPCE Spiritual Talk today we are taking a look Revelation 9. This Chapter is interesting taking us into Trumpets Five and Six, Woe One The Locusts, and Woe Two The Plagues...These are Judgements on the faithless where is this considered to be metaphoric??? The Lord judges metaphorically??? Not according to the accounts of the Old Testament this is why studying Scripture is extremely important breaking it all down and looking at all the translations to the best of our knowledge!!! The unveiling is happening and this world is being prepped for what's to come, because many these days have no room for a supernatural life...Being a Christian is supernatural, because Christ conquered death by death rising up on the third day, the Life Giving Spirit, the Holy Spirit, the Breath of God is not of this world...Just like it was in the Time of Noah so shall it be in the Age of the Son of Man, the Final Battle is coming and it's not of this world!!!
"Yeshua indeed spoke in both parables and metaphorically but that doesn't mean the Prophecies are metaphoric!!! Why would our future be told metaphorically if it was told as an warning for both preparation and a peace of mind!!! Yeshua wanted us to be both spiritually and physically prepared with a peace of mind, I doubt Our Lord would use metaphors in these Revelations the Apostle John spoke about!!!"

Star translates: in Greek as aster meaning star, and could also indicate to an angel could be pointing to the angel or messenger mentioned in (Revelation 20:1) In Judaism such symbolism is quite known: (Job 38:7; also see 1 Enoch 21:6), could represent the fallen world powers (Jude 13), or a fallen angel (Luke 10:18), or how about Satan himself (Revelation 9:11; Isaiah 14:12-15)...His fall could also point to descent: an angel sent from heaven by the Lord with a key to unlock the Bottomless pit, or the abyss it's below hell itself a deep underground holding chained up beasts who are a threat to divine order!!! Also holds lots of evil spirits including demons that love the taste of human flesh!!! (Revelations 11:7; 17:8; 20:1-3; also see Luke 8:31)...The smoke will cause extreme darkness because it would be really thick on a massive scale, may also be symbolizing the darkness that will cover the entire planet in the Last Days!!!
9:3-4: These new plagues carry similarities to the ones of ancient Egypt (Checkout Exodus 9, and 10 for the eighth and ninth plagues)...From the smoke and the pit will come large locusts, representing demonic entities and they will torture all of those who are not SEALED and protective by The Seal of God, meaning the Holy Spirit, so it's imperative in these times people belong to the Kingdom of God!!! According to Scripture This seal will be given to the 144,000 servants in the Last Days (Revelation 5:4; 7:2-4; 14:1; 22:3-4 and also comparing it with Revelation 13:16-18), this seal is spiritual identity, at Christmation Orthodox Christians receive the seal and the gift of the Holy Spirit!!!
9:5-6: The period of torture is to be limited, and seems to come from the stings of the scorpions and will be the most painful thing ever known to mankind!!! Due to the intensity of these scorpions the afflicted will seek death, but will not permitted to die!!!
9:7-10: This is a terrifying picture of the evil and the demonic oppression of sinners in the Last days!!!
9:11: Hebrew: Abaddon refers to destruction (Job 28:22 and 31:12, according to Hebrew text): Apollyon is the Greek form for "Destroyer": Reference to my notes and research on Revelation 13: There could some pinpointing to the Greek God Apollo, and some of the Roman Emperors like Caligula, Nero, and Domitian claimed to have a special relationship with: Rome is the throne of Satan and the future Antichrist will be killed and than rise from the dead to mimic the real Christ so many will be deceived!!!
9:13-16: See the Four-horned altar might be based on this example found in the OT (Exodus 27:2): The voice is a command from the Lord to the four angels, to create the spiritual conditions for the destruction of what Scriptures tell us a third of mankind will perish!!! The Euphrates was the border of the empire with wicked people were often feared to dwell: The number tow hundred million, no way is an earthly military this is where people are being misled and lied to about!!! It sounds not of this world and extremely demonic but who knows just be sealed and protective by the Holy Spirit and trust the Lord only!!!
9:17-19: This is just a look at what happens to those who reject the Word of God and never want to turn from their evil ways!!!
9:20-21: Humanity is so addicted to sin during these Last Days that these terrifying plagues do not cause the survivors to repent, (1 Corinthians 8:4)...see also (1 Corinthians 10:20-21)...
-Read from "Peace With The Psalms"- Part 1: "The Lord Is My Shepherd"
Overcoming Anger Don't Let it be destructive factor in your lives!!!
Matthew 5:21-22: Have a Pure Heart!!!
21 “You have heard that it was said to those[a]of old, ‘You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’22 But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother[b]without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca! ’[c]shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says,[d]‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of[e]hell fire.
- The repeated formula "but I say unto you" this is a statement of total divine order and authority!!! Christ is the Creator of all and the Author of the Divine Law we are asked to follow...Anger in itself is not sinful if used for extreme righteousness (Psalm 4:5; Mark 3:5), Here Yeshua is forbidding sinful anger, identifying it with murder... The council is the supreme legal body among the Jews...Hell is the final and ultimate fate and destruction for sinners who reject the Lord's Law of Divine Order!!!
-Tomorrow is Revelation 10 Study and Scripture Work/ Read from "Peace With The Psalms", and a message about how to comfort and receive comfort from the Lord!!! Shalom!!!
