heres another way of interpeting the Locusts & The Pit from whence they emerge on the world for 5 months
the appearance of these 'Locusts' sounds sci-fi-ish...but the vision was related in the writing of a AD 90-150 person's worldview....
The vision of the 'Locusts' is actually a description of the Bacteria that causes the malady among many ethnic groups of men and women.
The 'Pit' is actually the eyepiece of a future microscope... the tube or Pit from which the microscopic
germs, bacteria, viruses can be seen to 'emerge' from...
John's vision was looking down the eyepice lens of a microscope and 'seeing' these alien lifeforms he identified as 'Locusts' with lions teeth, womens
hair, a stinger on tails like scorpions...
As i recall in the '60's or '70s, a bestseller book made the interpetation that these Locusts out of the Earth were Air Calvery Attack Helicoptors
with both missiles and gattling-guns rotating to the rear...
who? was it hal Lindsey?..
John's vision was a look across time, into a end-time future... after the anti-christ/false prophet has been revealed
i have studied some on the 7 yr, and other 14 yr Locust broods and projected the eras that might be the onset of a recurring plague of Locusts... but
finally gave up that model, because an erratic solar cycle might be the cause for a mutated brood of Locusts to mature early and swarm on many
continents at once.
