Sixth Trumpet

 

13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 15 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. 16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. 17 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. 18 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. 19 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. 20 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: 21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts. Rev 9:13-21 (KJV)

 

One of the oldest misconceptions of this passage is that most Christians began looking to see what countries possibly had that many horses. I think if I tried selling you a horse, and I told you that my horse had a lion's head that breathed fire and a head on his tail and bit - you'd tell me I'm insane.

 

So, it's pretty obvious that these horses are not physical horses, but something demonic. The other possibility is that they are mechanical, a form of tank. But I've yet to see a tank with anything resembling a tail or a lion's head.

 

Nor is there any country in the world with 200,000,000 tanks. So, to me, this is a demonic attack, just like the 5th Trumpet.

 

We see a MASSIVE loss of life now. The total population of the earth will drop to below 1970 level.

 

1,731,081,000 die

 

3,514,619,000 left

 

Grand total perished in the Tribulation to date... 5,268,919,000 people..

 

More than half the population of the earth has perished under the Antichrist's rule. 3 years into his reign over the earth. He's still got almost 4 years left.
