Revelation 9:1And 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.

3And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
the baha'is are locusts. the scorpions are jewish scribes and pharisees. they both have the same power - money and

not the seal of God in their foreheads.
the seal of God is Jesus Christ the Holy Spirit. the baha'is only hurt those who did not believe in Jesus Christ.
5And 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.
their torment was as the torment of a scribe and pharisee. a heavy yoke, persecution, enslavement
6And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
the great depression
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.
the horses depict a religious army. their 'crowns like gold' set up to imitate the 'crown of life' that Jesus promised his
8And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
this is the indication of their strength and power
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

10And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail
11And 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.
12One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
13And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
14Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.

15And 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.
16And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
17And 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.

21Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
These were plagues sent by God since the death of Christ until this time, give or take a year. The seventh trumpet is not blown until
God's servants are sealed. That sealing is happening now. Repent and be saved.
