Pamphlet 1866 Rev. kc 27-2
The 6th Trump is sounding!
That's right, there are four horns on the altar of God. You can read about them in Ezekiel 43:20. Also in Zechariah 1:18-21 you can document that "horns" are symbolic of "power" and so the horns on the golden altar of God are symbolic of the Power of God, which is all power in both heaven and earth. When word is given from that altar know that it comes from the Supreme Authority of the Universe. Is this not where the "fire", His word, was taken?Rev. 9:13
And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
Note: If you've read the Book of Daniel then you know that one of Satan's names is "little horn". And that about says it all, doesn't it? However, I'll bet it infuriates him to called that! Little horn, little horn, na, na, na!
Now here's the command to the sixth angel from the One who has All Power:
The last time we encountered four angels was in Rev. 7:1 where four angels were standing on the four corners of the earth. They were holding back the four winds, but they were not bound, nor were they in the river Euphrates. Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
So who are these angels? The answer lies in the phrase "bound in the great river Euphrates", which symbolically means "bound in judgment". The river Euphrates has always been the boundary between Babylon and God's children. Did you know that the word "Hebrew" comes from "eber" which means people "from across the river", i.e. across the great river Euphrates where lies not the great city of Babylon? And we find that the Euphrates is connected with the judgments of the great day in Jeremiah 46:4-10.
So these angels are those "bound" angels "reserved unto the day of judgment" which we just discussed in the opening paragraphs of this study and which Jude speaks of.
These are the angels of Genesis chapter 6 who left their first estate, the place where angels are supposed to be, and left their own habitation, i.e. left their homes in heaven and came to earth to take to wife the daughters of Adam. Remember, as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be soon! They are coming again! Get ready! Get under the veil of Christ!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.
OK, they are let loose. That'll certainly cause Woe Two! 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.
The hour, day, month and year given here is not a duration of time but rather a fixed period of time, i.e. the time and date they are appointed, prepared, to be let loose, which only God knows.
And they "slay" a third part of men.Now we already know that they cannot shed blood, i.e. kill anybody, so always remember to think 2nd death, spiritual death.
So what's the point? The point is that Satan's army is "huge" and worse yet he and his troops deceive the whole world, about 6 thousand, thousand, thousand! And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
The word "thousand" is murias, Greek #3461; a ten-thousand; by extension a "myriad" or indefinite number.
Here comes the charge of Satan's troops, looking like angelic priests (having breastplates) of God, with the power (horses) of the lion of Judah, which is Jesus Christ, whom they claim to represent. And out of their mouths came forth fire (remember from the seals that fire is symbolic of truth from God's altar?), and smoke (remember from the seals that this "smoke screen" darkens the sun, i.e. the truth) and brimstone (which is acidic sulphur that "stinks to high heaven", as we say). 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.
They "kill" with the Fire, Smoke and Brimstone, which came out of their MOUTHS, i.e. they come Breathing Fire and Blowin' Smoke with Bad Breath! This is really easy to understand if we keep in mind that it is "words" that come out of mouths. But by "Seeing" in your mind's eye fire and smoke and brimstone spewing forth from the mouths of these creeps, you can understand spiritually the effect of their lying, deceitful "words". Got the picture? 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.
Also, these guys can't harm and are but a mere nuisance to those with the seal of God in their foreheads.We practice on them while we await the "Fire Breathing Dragon" who gets his head cut off with the Sword of the Lord! Didn't you always wonder why dragons breathed fire? Now you know what it means!
The "fallen angels" are just that, angels. And their little "tails" are those who follow them, the "children of disobedience", the snakes and vipers Christ addressed, the kenites. Satan and his angels (Rev. 12) use them very effectively to "hurt". 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.
The rest of men repented not because they are deceived by these devils in disguise, and they do their works in ignorance. And materialism, the great and booming economy of the New World Order in full bloom, helps prevent the need for God and promote a false sense of wellness and security and pitiful apathy and the willingness to put up with lies and deception of major proportions. After all, haven't we seen in this current generation the effects and workings of just that? Are you familiar with the phrase "It's the economy, stupid?" 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:
Though these are spiritual murders, and spiritual drunkenness and drugging of the mind, and idolatry and the thefts of the heritage and salvation of God's people, there are physical types. Look up the word "sorceries" in Strong's Concordance. It's pharmakeia, from which we get our word pharmacy. The amount of psychologically related drugs, both illegal from pushers and legal from doctors and pharmacies, that are administered and taken by both the adult and child populations in this country is STAGGERING! And our people do stagger! God help us and deliver us from this bondage! Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
Finally, did you know that this five month period of the locust army, headed by the chief serpent, that old dragon, the devil, will soon be compared to a great flood, a flood of lies?
So in concluding today's study, here is a precious fact from God's Word. How long did the waters of the great flood prevail upon the earth?Rev. 12:15
And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
And how many months are 150 days? FIVE MONTHS! Well I'll be!Genesis 7:24
And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.
Woe, Woe, Woe your boat! The flood of lies cometh! So get on board the "ark" of His covenant of these last days.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
