Go to Revelation 9:1 Uriel explained, A rebellious light-bearing leader, SÍmj‚z‚, rebelled from serving Yehuveh: and gave mankind the key to limitless moral corruption.
Go to Revelation 9:2 SÍmj‚z‚ opened limitless corruption; and Yehuvehís instruction and wisdom were totally obscured in the resulting great oppression; and knowledge of His words and manís righteous self-directing freedom were alike obscured.
Go to Revelation 9:3 Out of the darkened understanding and ignorance kings arose upon the earth: and these kings were given power through stinging, bitter, harsh words.
Go to Revelation 9:4 The kings of the earth were commanded not to act wickedly toward yet-uncommitted people, any spiritual person, nor any leader; but only toward those who refused to confirm their covenant with Yehuveh [during these four years].
Go to Revelation 9:5 The kings of the earth were not permitted to kill these rebels, but could torment them throughout the second 150-day time [from 27 October 2008 to 27 March 2009] with harsh, bitter words, incriminations, and accusations.
Go to Revelation 9:6 Under this oppression men seek to end their rebellion and reconnect with Yehuveh, but they cannot find a way; it utterly escapes them.
Go to Revelation 9:7 The kings of the earth, directed behind-the-scenes by financially-driven great men, promoted warfare, yet they were ultimately under Yehuvehís control; money-driven, they corrupted judicial power and their appointment of leaders.
Go to Revelation 9:8 These locust-kings, with fearful, weakened, vulnerable understanding, consume the humble and poor by their cursing and deceitful, mischievous speaking.
Go to Revelation 9:9 They sought to protect themselves by being unyieldingly firm; and they extend their laws and judgments through lesser leaders who make war.
Go to Revelation 9:10 The locust-kings are supported by instructors who propagate their foundational lies, intimidating men with harsh, bitter words during these five months.
Bible, KJV Translation:
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.
9:2 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.
9:3 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.
9:4 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.
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.
9:6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
9:7 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.
9:8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
9:9 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.
9:10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
