The Smoke from the Bottomless Pit - Fulfilled 1990
An oil well must be one of the deepest man-made holes in the world and a “bottomless pit” is a good description. So the “smoke from the bottomless pit” could be the plume of smoke rising from a burning oil well, which, as we all saw on newsreels at the time of the Gulf War, certainly did obscure the sun.
This narrative even describes a “shaft” going into it, which is the man-made lining, inserted into an oil well in the course of construction.
The vision starts at: Revelation 9
And the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key of the shaft of the bottomless pit; 2 he opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft.
The Angel of the Bottomless Pit came down from the sky with the “key” or power, to set the oil wells ablaze. This must have been an explosive charge of some kind, because it is not easy to ignite heavy crude oil. You can’t ignite it with a match so he would have needed an explosive “key” of some kind.
We have previously identified the angel of the bottomless pit as Osama Bin Laden, the perpetrator of the 911 atrocity, but read the next unbelievable confirmation of his identity.
Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth; 4 they were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any green growth or any tree, but only those of mankind who have not the seal of God upon their foreheads;
5 They were allowed to torture them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torture was like the torture of a scorpion, when it stings a man.
6 And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death will fly from them.
7 In appearance the locusts were like horses arrayed for battle; on their heads were what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces, 8 their hair like women's hair, and their teeth like lions' teeth;
9 they had scales like iron breastplates, and the noise of their wings was like the noise of many chariots with horses rushing into battle.
10 They have tails like scorpions, and stings, and their power of hurting men for five months lies in their tails.
The description of the “locusts” sounds like a swarm of helicopters, which were actually brought into action in Kuwait when the Iraqis started to torch the oil wells as they retreated.
Their mission would have been to target people, the Iraqi invading force and not to hurt the “grass of the earth or any growth or tree” (the superstructure) because Kuwait was our ally in this conflict and the fight was on their territory.
The war was against the Iraqi troops, “those who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads”.
The locusts had the faces of men (the pilots) with crowns on their heads (helmets) and tails like a scorpion (a good analogy) with a “sting” on the end (the tail rotors).
They had what would appear to be “a woman’s hair”. The main rotors would appear “wispy” and indistinct as they rotated, possibly giving the impression of long, flowing hair.
The noise of the helicopter’s “wings” is likened to “the noise of many chariots with horses rushing into battle”, an apt description of the rushing, pulsating noise of a helicopter in flight! Now read this part:
11 They have as king over them, the angel of the bottomless pit; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon.
This part is very strange because it implies that the country which owned the helicopters had a king over them and he was the angel of the bottomless pit.
We have identified him previously as Osama Bin Laden and since he was certainly not in charge of any allied country’s Air Force, nor that of Kuwait, and the Iraqis did not have any operational aircraft, then there is a problem here to be addressed!
This verse has absolutely no truth or relevance in the narrative and no connection to the verses either before or after it. I believe that this an artificially created verse which has been written with the sole intention of transmitting a coded message!
By being inserted here, it identifies the angel of the bottomless pit, alias Osama Bin Laden, in Revelation Chapter 9/11, thereby cleverly identifying the incident for which he is infamous, now commonly referred to as 9/11.
Many sceptics claim that 2000 years of translating and editing has removed any chance that the scriptures bear any resemblance to what was originally written. If so, editing and translation have failed to remove this obviously misplaced and totally irrelevant verse and its number 9v11.
