Surah 5:33 “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah or his apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or the cutting off of hands and feet from the opposite sides, or exile from the land.”

Al Tawbah The Repentance: “Prophet, make war on unbelievers and hypocrites, and deal rigorously with them.” Sura 9:73.

“Let not the unbelievers think they will ever get away... strike terror into the enemy of God and your enemy... rouse the faithful to arms.”

If they (the non-Muslims) incline to peace (accept Islam) make peace with them.” Surah 8:59-60. “If they reject your judgment, know that it is Allahs wish to scourge them for their sins.” Surah 5:49.

In Al Maidah (The Table): “Believers (Muslims), take neither Jews nor Christians to be your friends: they are friends with one another. Whoever of you seeks their friendship -

Shall become one of their number, and God does not guide (those Jewish and Christian called) “wrong-doers,” 5:51-5:74.

They teach that the Jews are evil-doers, Surah 5:57.

“Let not the unbelievers think they will ever get away... strike terror into the enemy of God and your enemy... rouse the faithful to arms! If they (the non-Muslims) incline to peace (accept Islam) make peace with them.” Surah 8:59-60.

“If they reject your judgment, know that it is Allahs wish to scourge them for their sins.” Surah 5:49.

Surah 9:29. Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day.

Surah 48:29 Be harsh with unbelievers, the Christians, the Jews, the Atheist neighbors and colleagues.

Surah 69:30-37 As for him who does not believe in Islam, the Prophet announces with a “stern command”, “Seize ye him, and bind ye him, And burn ye him in the Blazing Fire.”

Further, make him march in a chain, whereof the length is seventy cubits. And let him where a sign that, “This was he that would not believe in Allah Most High.”

There are two categories of fallen angels under the command of Satan.

1. The non-operational angels.

a. The angels of Gen 6 who were involved in the angelic attack to infiltrate the human race who are now incarcerated underneath the ground in a place called Tartarus.

Paradise For Old Testament believers only - empty since the resurrection of Christ.

b. The first demon assault army incarcerated in the abyss at this time.

Paradise For Old Testament believers only - empty since the resurrection of Christ.

They have hit the bottom as believers and the only decisions that they can make that will start their recovery is their decision to rebound, or if they are unbelievers, their decision to become a believer.

They are alive because they have volition, and that means they still have the opportunity to respond to the grace of God.

1. Pain can serve as a motivation but also in some cases pain can make a person a lot worse.

2. Pain and suffering and adversity either makes us worse or better but it never leaves us the same.

3. Some believers under disaster are motivated to improve, they rebound and get cracking again.

4. Others turn very bitter and very sour and eventually they get locked-in to the evil and the arrogance of the cosmic system.

God always provides grace before judgment.

The phrase those days is important, because this has absolutely nothing to do with these days or the present time.

Our greatest danger from demons is our residence in the cosmic system under the category of reversionism.

Arrogance cannot endure torture, for arrogance is a state of tenseness increasing vulnerability to pain.

Those living in the cosmic system do not make decisions from a position of strength, they are making decisions from a position of weakness.

Satan is an evil and unjust ruler and he turns his first demon assault army on his own human servants.

1. The locust demons are described in terms of a cavalry which means they have mobility and fire power.

2. They have a military insignia, their crowns were not gold but like gold.

They think they are a victorious army - REV 9:7 and on their heads, as it were, crowns like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men.

3. The appearance of the demons. Their faces were like men indicating that demons do appear as men though they have greater intelligence and adaptability.

The significance of crowns like gold is victory and this demon assault army comes out of the abyss shouting victory, but for the demon assault army it is a false victory.

The only combat victory they have is against those members of the human race who during the Tribulation reside in the cosmic system as Satans servants.

They do have hair like women.

Covering - peribolaion = her long hair is a sign that she is under authority, however it also has to do with a woman using her long hair in different ways to make herself beautiful.
