|Revelation Chapter 9
NY Study Group
|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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
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.
10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
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.
12 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
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.

1. The thyroid releases its hormones into the blood stream. Now the control of the "ID" or area of repression, is given over to the will, which deliberately releases the contents.
2. Consciousness is dimmed by the confusion brought about by the released negative repressions. Old regrets and guilt feelings are activated. Yet, these do not injure the natural growths or development, but strike at those cells which carry no pattern or program, or development in them. However "painful", this does not kill them.
7. The descriptions of the repressed thought-forms indicate malformation and a hybrid nature, yet they carry force, in the power of their guilt feelings. These are the creatures resulting from self will, or lusts in the body.
12. (Three mental centers are being activated here. Only the action of one has so far been given.)
13. The pineal now activates the latent energies retained in the four original elements of John's make-up, for changes in the physical, the emotional, the mental and the spiritual to be made through the practice of what he has learned.
18. A third part of the cells are purged yet those that are unaffected continue to manufacture false concepts, create Frankensteins and materiality, and go misapplying the divine God-Force.
