Revelation 9:1 AND THE FIFTH ANGEL SOUNDED, AND I SAW A STAR FALL FROM HEAVEN UNTO THE EARTH: AND TO HIM WAS GIVEN THE KEY OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT.  And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.  And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.  And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; BUT ONLY THOSE MEN WHICH HAVE NOT THE SEAL OF GOD IN THEIR FOREHEADS.
Note: The last sentence in verse 4 discloses a very important point. At this stage of affairs, believers in the Lord Jesus Christ would have been raptured way before the blowing of the trumpets. While we have been told about the rapture of the church in the book of 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  THEN WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS, TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR: AND SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD.”
Let us be further assured of rapture promise from what the Lord Jesus revealed to John:
Revelation 3:10 BECAUSE THOU HAST KEPT THE WORD OF MY PATIENCE, I ALSO WILL KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION, WHICH SHALL COME UPON ALL THE WORLD, TO TRY THEM THAT DWELL UPON THE EARTH.  Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
Then, we should know what the WORD OF THE LORD’S PATIENCE truly is?
Let us look at Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians: (1Th 1:3) Remembering without ceasing your WORK OF FAITH, and LABOUR OF LOVE, and PATIENCE OF HOPE IN OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, IN THE SIGHT OF GOD AND OUR FATHER;  So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND FAITH IN ALL YOUR PERSECUTIONS AND TRIBULATIONS THAT YE ENDURE:
That, my brothers and sisters, is the WORD OF THE LORD’S PATIENCE!
The Lord Jesus further said in Revelation 3:9 Behold, I WILL MAKE THEM OF THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN, WHICH SAY THEY ARE JEWS, AND ARE NOT, BUT DO LIE; BEHOLD, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
Then, who are the Jews from THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN?
Apostle Paul showed us his anger towards the Jews who persecuted the Thessalonians congregation in the following verses: 1 Thessalonians 2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.  For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, EVEN AS THEY HAVE OF THE JEWS:  WHO BOTH KILLED THE LORD JESUS, AND THEIR OWN PROPHETS, AND HAVE PERSECUTED US; AND THEY PLEASE NOT GOD, AND ARE CONTRARY TO ALL MEN:  FORBIDDING US TO SPEAK TO THE GENTILES THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED, TO FILL UP THEIR SINS ALWAY: FOR THE WRATH IS COME UPON THEM TO THE UTTERMOST.
You see the severity of persecution by the Jews to the Thessalonians and other gentiles who accepted the Lord Jesus as their Lord and Savior! They meddled and thwarted the truth concerning salvation.
Where can we see the meddling Jews in the early stage of Christianity?
Act 15:1 “And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, EXCEPT YE BE CIRCUMCISED AFTER THE MANNER OF MOSES, YE CANNOT BE SAVED… But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, THAT IT WAS NEEDFUL TO CIRCUMCISE THEM, AND TO COMMAND THEM TO KEEP THE LAW OF MOSES.”
Doesn’t that sound pretty much like the new emerging “Back to the Hebrew Root” movement of these latter days? They advocate that believers of Jesus Christ should first become Jews by performing the rite of circumcision, and keep the law of Moses!
Is it not uncanny? The Lord Jesus Christ consoled His Church about who these Jews are who falsified the true gospel. Even the Lord promises to humiliate these Jews from the synagogue of Satan to come and worship at the believers feet who are loved by the Son of God, Jesus Christ!
No, Back to Hebrew Root requirement, No rite of circumcision, No keeping of the law of Moses!
Let us continue with the Fifth Trumpet:
First let me repeat Revelation 9:  And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; BUT ONLY THOSE MEN WHICH HAVE NOT THE SEAL OF GOD IN THEIR FOREHEADS.
In the middle of the Great Tribulation (Jacob’s Trouble) we are told about MEN WHICH HAVE THE SEAL OF GOD IN THEIR FOREHEADS.
Who are these people? For that, we have to go back to Revelation 7. Let me quote the few beginning verses:
Revelation 7:1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.  And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,  Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, TILL WE HAVE SEALED THE SERVANTS OF OUR GOD IN THEIR FOREHEADS.  And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
If we relate the status of the Jews in 1 Thessalonians 2:4 …THE JEWS:  WHO BOTH KILLED THE LORD JESUS, AND THEIR OWN PROPHETS, AND HAVE PERSECUTED US, the Chosen People (not the elect) up to the middle of the Great Tribulation, are still labeled as murderers of their “BROTHER” the Lord Jesus Christ!
What does that remind us? Cain and Abel! Cain was the first murderer in the human history. Before he went to his banishment, (Genesis 4:15c) ….AND THE LORD SET A MARK UPON CAIN, LEST ANY FINDING HIM SHOULD KILL HIM.
Continuing with the Fifth Trumpet:
Revelation 9:5 AND TO THEM IT WAS GIVEN THAT THEY SHOULD NOT KILL THEM, BUT THAT THEY SHOULD BE TORMENTED FIVE MONTHS: AND THEIR TORMENT WAS AS THE TORMENT OF A SCORPION, WHEN HE STRIKETH A MAN.  AND IN THOSE DAYS SHALL MEN SEEK DEATH, AND SHALL NOT FIND IT; AND SHALL DESIRE TO DIE, AND DEATH SHALL FLEE FROM THEM.

Continuing Revelation 9, the Fifth Trumpet:
 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.  And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.  And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.  And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.  AND THEY HAD A KING OVER THEM, WHICH IS THE ANGEL OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT, WHOSE NAME IN THE HEBREW TONGUE IS ABADDON , BUT IN THE GREEK TONGUE HATH HIS NAME APOLLYON .
 Abaddōn ab-ad-dohn’ Of Hebrew origin [H11]; a destroying angel: – Abaddon.
 Apolluōn ap-ol-loo’-ohn Active participle of G622; a destroyer (that is, Satan): – Apollyon.
It is interesting to remember that one of the name of Allah, the Muslim god is Destroyer.

The 5th Trumpet may describe the dropping of a nuclear bomb and chemical warfare, sprayed from military attack helicopters, which the Apostle John described as Locusts, which sting people. This chemical warfare will continue for 5 months. (This is an alternative view to our other Trumpet 5 broadcast)

Did the fear of God quickened your spirit? If you are “Left Behind” in your complacent and unrepentant condition, the seal of God may not be affixed on your foreheads!
Do you know or have you heard or better still, are you a believer in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? He is closing the book on this sinful world. Because of His loving nature, He wants to reduce the number of human beings from perishing, not the other way around. It is said that “THE LORD IS NOT SLACK CONCERNING HIS PROMISE, AS SOME MEN COUNT SLACKNESS; BUT IS LONG SUFFERING TO US-WARD, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, BUT THAT ALL SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE.” [2 Peter 3:9]
The way to be saved from the end time disasters and burning forever in the lake of fire, all He asks is, believe in His Son, Jesus Messiah, whom He had send into the world to be the ultimate sin sacrifice. There is no other way! This invitation is open to all: atheists, Judaizers, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Taoists, for people of all walk and beliefs.
You need to repent from your erroneous life styles. Find bible beliving church and stay away from assemblies as described in: APOSTASY IN THE CHURCH AND FALSE DOCTRINES OF MEN
Here is how: Romans 10:
 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;  THAT IF THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THINE HEART THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALT BE SAVED.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
AND HIS NAME IS YAHWEH, NOT ALLAH OR ANY OTHER NAMES!
