Please forgive this rough draft format, as these are my raw study notes. I felt a great sense of urgency to publish them rather than waiting until I had the time to pretty them up.

Then return here and ponder the thoughts, answer the questions, and be sure to leave comments about your own revelations. 9:1 — 5th trumpet — star falls to earth and is given the key to the abyss. He opens it and smoke pours out, darkening the sun and sky. Locusts come out of the smoke with the power of scorpions to torture those without God's seal on their foreheads for 5 months. The star is the angel-king mentioned in 9:11. The Int'l Bible Commentary says this is probably a fallen angel. 9:2 — See Genesis 19:28; Exodus 19:18; Joel 2:10 (AMP) 9:3 - locusts — see Exodus 10:1-20 and Joel 1:2-2:11 for more background on locust plagues. See Exodus 2:12-15 (AMP) 9:4 — See Ezeki
