6:9  When the
Lamb-king opened the fifth closing development, the anointed instructors expose the foundations of all false religions, the lies which finally destroy all who cling to their lies, vanities, and traditions:

Significant Words and Comments:
Commentary on Revelation 6:9 (9 January 2008):  “When he had opened the fifth seal,” that is, “when the Lamb-king opened the fifth closing development. . . .” on the first day of the tenth month, 26 December 2011, as delineated in Noah’s Year of Deliverance
“I saw under the altar,” might better be translated Yehuveh’s anointed instructors exposed the foundations of the slaughter-places.”
Under is from hupokato [G5270], “under, underneath,” the compound of hupo [G5259], “by, under,” and kato [G2736], meaning “down from, through out; according to, toward, along; after, against, in, by, as.”
Altar, from thusiasterion [G2379], rather than representing a square structure in some temple, is simply, “any place of slaughter.”

This entire verse needs to be reconsidered!
“Souls,” is from entry G5590, “breath, vital force, seat of the feelings, desires, affections and aversions.”
“Slain,” taken from entry G4969, “to slay, slaughter, butcher, put to death by violence.”
For is from G1223, “with, in, through,” and should be translated differently.
“The word of God,” is from two entries: logos [G3056], “collecting, collection of words; decree, mandate, order; discourse; doctrine; reason, account, regard, consideration, account, relation, cause, ground;” and theos [G2316], which, though said to be deity, actually means “to supplicate, implore.”
“Testimony” [G3141] is simply “telling what one knows.”
“Held,” is from G2192, meaning “have, hold, to be in the condition or possession of, to adhere to or cling to.”
The anointed instructors are exposing, bringing to people’s knowledge, the foundational lies and vanity of the religious systems of this world, the systems which have completely destroyed men’s freedom in Yehuveh and taken away their very lives. What a terrible suffering these religious leaders and their “churches” have caused! Jeremiah 16:19.
