The Spirit of Locusts in Rev 9
© Talmid HaMashiach
In the book of Revelation chapter 9 verse 1 - 12, we can see the LOCUSTS and their king which is the ABADDON or APPOLYON.
Who are these LOCUSTS?
And, who is their king which is ABADDON or APPOLYON?
Rev 9:3 KJV
there came out of the smoke LOCUSTS [ἀκρίς - AKRIS] upon the earth:
and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have
The Greek word for LOCUSTS is AKRIS. But, now we
are going to explore it in Hebraic perspective. We are going to read
in in Hebrew.
ומן־הקיטר יצא ארבה על־הארץ ושלטן נתן להם כשלטן עקרבי הארץ
oo.mi.toch ha.ki.tor ya.tza AR.BE al-ha.a.retz ve.cho.ach ni.tan.la.hem ke.cho.ach ha.ak.ra.bim ba a.retz
The Hebrew word of LOCUSTS is ארבה. It consists of Hebrew letters : ALEPH-RESH-BET-HEY.
Now, what is the Hebrew word of ARAB?
Jos 15:52 KJV
ARAB, and Dumah, and Eshean,
ארב ורומה ואשׁען
A.RAV ve.ru.ma ve.esh.an
The Hebrew word of ARAB is ארב. It consist of Hebrew letters : ALEPH-RESH-BET.
So, the Hebrew word for LOCUSTS is ארבה. The Hebrew word for ARAB is ארב. Does it look identical? So if Revelation chapter 9 verse 1-12 is talking about the spirit of LOCUSTS, we know who they are.
who is their king in Rev 9:11? Who is the king of ARAB? We understand
that the king of ARAB is ALLAH. In Islam, there are 99 Names of
ALLAH, one of the Names is AL-MUMMIT or THE DESTROYER.
Rev 9:11 KJV
they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit,
whose name in the Hebrew tongue is ABADDON [Ἀβαδδών], but in the
Greek tongue hath his name APPOLYON [Ἀπολλύων].
The word ABADDON means :
angel, ruin, destruction, the place of destruction, the name of the
angel-prince of the infernal regions, the minister of death and the
author of havoc on the earth.
The word APPOLYON means :
the angel of the bottomless pit, the Destroyer, Satan.
actually in Revelation 9:1-12, the Apostle John saw a vision the rise
of Islam when the LOCUSTS and their king destroying the world.
The other amazing thing is :
Arabic word for LOCUST is GINDIB. The Monolith of Shalmeneser III
from Kurkuk, the oldest account from Babylon and the oldest document
mentioning ARAB, it lists GI-IN-DI-BU AR-BA-A regarding ARAB and their
territory is called GINDIBU.
Learning the Hebrew words is always interesting : we
interpret God's word better, reveal so many things and understand
Biblical prophecy more accurately.
