Invasion of False Religion

Introduction: Where are some of the fallen angels? Will there be an INVASION? Apparently during the tribulation, the great abyss will be unlocked and release millions of hideous creatures. Thankfully, the true Church will be raptured up in heaven with her Bridegroom. Let’s discuss this futuristic event when there is an INVASION of false RELIGION.

1. How is the BOTTOMLESS PIT opened? (Rev 9:1,2)

“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. 2And 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.”

The Star has a key. Do you know by comparison that Jesus Christ has the keys to death and hell?

“18I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” (Rev 1:18)

2. Who opens the BOTTOMLESS PIT? (Rev 9:1,2)

“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.”

Who is this “star”? Some believe it is Satan. Others say the Antichrist. Still others declare it is an Angel. Let’s face it, Satan is the great deceiver, accuser, and liar. Yet, Jesus Christ is the TRUTH! The WAY! The LIFE!

3. What comes out of the BOTTOMLESS PIT? (Rev 9:3, 7-10)

“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….. 7And 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. 8And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. 9And 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. 10And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.”

Perhaps these are the fallen angels that procreated with the “daughters of men” during the days of Noah. Consequently, they were judged the Lord God and confined to hell, as both Peter and Jude writes (2Pet 2:4; Jude 4-7).

4. What will eventually happen to the creatures in the BOTTOMLESS PIT? (Rev 9:11)

“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….”

(Rev 19:20)
“…20And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone…..”

At the present time, it appears Satan and his demons win. But the Word of God reveals he loses. JESUS WINS!

Conclusion: By the way, this particular unleashing of this 200 million man (Angel) army may only be a few years (3) away. Does it seem like to you that our adversary is already preparing for this INVASION of this FALSE RELIGION?
Stay armed. Be alert. Remain faithful.
