Meet the second demon assault army. Part 15.

Thursday, October 24, 2002

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 in Tartarus.

b. The first demon assault army incarcerated in the abyss at this time, REV 9:1-11.

c. A second demon assault army stationed underneath the Euphrates river, REV 9:13-21.

The golden altar is analogous to the golden altar of incense which was in the tabernacle and the temple, and it represents the imprecatory prayers of the Tribulational saints, REV 6:9-11.

This explains the dilemma of how Satans demon assault armies attack, torture and destroy Satans human servants who have been carrying out his will faithfully in the cosmic system during the Tribulation.

Just as Satans servants in the cosmic system torture and kill Tribulational believers who were positive toward doctrine but given the privilege of martyrdom, so Satans servants are destroyed by Satan himself.

The four horns of the golden altar remind us that all answers to prayer, including imprecatory prayers, are related to the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross.

PSA 22:16b They pierced my hands and my feet.

Turn to REV 8:3

Turn to REV 9:14

They have been restrained up till now and will be until the middle of the Tribulation period, and the command is to release them because the only demons permitted to operate on planet earth at the present time are disembodied spirits.

Each one of these demon generals command a great demon assault army that will probably be divided into 50,000,000 demons each.

Bound - pres-pass-part - deo = to bind, to put in prison, to incarcerate

These demon armies have bodies, weapon systems, uniforms, patches, and they are a full military organization.

The first order from the elect Cherub angel to the angel holding the sixth trumpet is to release the general officers.

The Euphrates is one of the four rivers which flow from the Garden of Eden.

This army group will be composed of four hard-core tough armies - probably North, South, East and West.

It will be a time of wrath, 1TH 5:9; REV 6:16-17.

A time of judgment, REV 14:7.

A time of indignation, ISA 34:1-3.

A time of punishment, ISA 24:20-21.

A time of trial, REV 3:10.

A time of trouble, JER 30:7.

A time of destruction, Joel 1:15.

A time of darkness, ZEP 1:14-18.

There will only be one group that they cannot kill, certain demon possessed unbelievers, members of the human race, will be exempted from their attack.

A certain group of unbelievers in REV 9:20-21, who are involved in idolatry, religiosity, the phallic cult, will be a part of the final attack of Satan against Gods plan in the human race.

Have been prepared - perf-mid-part - hetoimazo = they have been kept in a state of readiness.

Nothing can happen in history apart from divine consent.

Turn to PRO 16:1

Nothing can happen in history apart from divine consent.

The exception are believers who have the wall of fire around them because they are living in Gods plan, and unbelievers who are demon possessed.

Turn to REV 9:16-21
