The Old Testament shows punishment for people's sins, and now, it is coming again.

The following message is in my own words, but it is received from the Holy Spirit.

In Revelation 9, there are 3 verses that stand out. So, let's look at those and break down the meaning of those verses.

Revelation 9:3

"And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth."

Locusts = demons. Since they were "given power like that of scorpions", we know this means demons will be more powerful than they are today.

Revelation 9:6

"During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them."

The Bible tells us the enemy comes to kill, but here, the men (referring to non-Believers) cannot die for "death will elude them." Therefore, the enemy is changing its tactic just a little bit. Instead of the enemy coming to kill, like leading people to suicide, the enemy will keep Satan's followers alive to implement his final plan of destruction. He is able to do this since demons have greater power in the lives of non-Believers.

Revelation 9:15

"And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind."

Jesus, being a righteous and just Judge, will punish sin and hinder Satan's plan. The way He will do this is by allowing His angels to destroy 2-3 billion people.

Revelation 9 is a reminder that sin is serious and Jesus, being a righteous and just Judge, will punish sin.

The Holy Spirit says:

"Be prepared My people. War is coming and the time of peace is quickly coming to a halt. Get rid of your sin. Focus on godliness and come to Me. Allow Me to wash away your sin and grow you into the son or daughter that I desire you to be. Great things happen to those who greatly follow Me."
