called up to the Throne Room of Heaven where he witnessed the Lord Jesus Christ take the Scroll of Destiny and begin to break its seven seals one by one. As each of the first six seals were broken, severe judgments fell upon the globe, and one fourth of the population of the earth was killed. The unbelieving inhabitants of the

earth became convinced of the reality of the God of Heaven, and God in His grace saved 144,000 Jews, protected them with His seal upon their foreheads, and sent them around the world proclaiming the gospel.

A great multitude of people were saved, some from every people group of the world, but many were martyred or killed in the cataclysmic judgments of these first years of the tribulation.

In chapter 8, the last of the seven seals on the scroll was broken by the Risen Christ. When it was, the scroll rolled open and for the first time in all eternity, the contents of the Scroll of Destiny, the Will of the Father, was revealed to the multitude, the elders, and even to the angels of heaven.

had already befallen the earth would begin to fall.

At the blowing of the seventh trumpet, The Terrible Day of the Lord, long predicted by the

Old Testament prophets, would begin to unfold. Thus the citizens of Heaven were dumbstruck in awe and reverential fear of the Almighty God.

After these four horrific judgments fall upon the earth, God sends an angel flying through the sky warning the people of planet earth. Rev. 8:13b Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound! The first of those woes is THE FIFTH TRUMPET JUDGMENT (Rev. 9:1-12)

The first of those woes is THE FIFTH TRUMPET JUDGMENT (Rev. 9:1-12) Revelation 9:112 1 Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. 3 Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

4 They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5 And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. 6 In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them. 7 The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. 8 They

had hair like womens hair, and their teeth were like lions teeth. 9 And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running into battle. 10 They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. Their power was to hurt men five months. 11 And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon. 12 One woe is past. Behold, still two more woes are

coming after these things. It is passages like this one that make many people throw up their hands and say, How in the world do you figure out what this means? But by now, you are getting accustomed to using our simple but effective tools of interpretation. We will apply them again and see the meaning unfold. Here are the key interpretive questions: Who is the star fallen from heaven? (We say

who instead of what because the star is called him and he in the next verses.) Here are the key interpretive questions: Who is the star fallen from heaven?

judgment, taking on the form of creatures that look like locusts but sting like scorpions. Now, simply reading the text and letting the plain sense make sense, we can answer the following questions.

Rev. 9:12 One woe is past. Behold, still two

more woes are coming after these things. CONCLUSION: Next week we will examine the second woe which is also the sixth trumpet, then the text takes an intermission in the action of the trumpet judgments to let us see something else happening in heaven and something else happening on earth (Chapter 10).
