The 5th Trumpet

What is the disaster of the 5th trumpet? Is that already happened or will be come soon? What is the 5th trumpet symbolized? After the 5th trumpet, the great tribulation will come when and the 6th trumpet blow. Let’s see the 5th trumpet first, please read the Revelation Chapter 9:1-12.

Revelation 9:1 “And the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit.”

Someone says the star means Satan, who fallen from heaven to earth. But God gave the key to the star to open the bottomless pit, and gave power to locusts to torment people five months except the 144000 sealed people. If the star is Satan, how come God gave the key to him? If the star is Satan, he should command the locusts to torment 144000 sealed people. But why not the locusts do that? Obviously, this star is an heavenly angel and carry out the will of God.

Revelation 9:2-3 “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. Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth.”

When the angel opened the bottomless pit, it rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened. We know the smoke is not the real smoke, so the sun and the air are also not the real. If the sun and the air become darkened, that means the sad, hopeless and shall be death. Maybe it symbolize the old earth(Satan’s world) will become darkened, no hope and shall be ended.

 Revelation 9:4-6 “They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any green plant or any tree, but only those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. They were allowed to torment them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings someone. And in those days people will seek death and will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them.”

The locusts were told not to harm the grass or any green plant or any tree, but only those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. What do the grass, green plants and trees mean? If we read the latter sentence, we can deduce the meaning of the previous sentence. It says the locusts harm “only those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads”, so in this vision, the grass or green plant or tree symbolize the 144000 sealed people.

What are the locusts? Are they real? Or what do they symbolize? What about the 5th disaster? Is that already happened or will come soon?

Maybe the locusts symbolize the COVID19 virus. Why do we say that? It seems they are similar. There were the smoke come out of the bottomless pit and then the locusts came out from the smoke. You know the smoke is formed by very small particles that our naked eye can’t see that the locusts came out. Is that symbolized the COVID19 virus? Because our naked eye can’t see the COVID19 virus too.

The locusts came out from bottomless pit means they were not exist on the earth before, it is like the new coronavirus a new virus that did not exist on earth before. In fact, no one knows where COVID 19 comes from, even with many scientists studying and researching. Let’s see some report about COVID19.

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, a number of non-pharmaceutical interventions colloquially known as lockdowns (encompassing stay-at-home orders, curfews, quarantines, cordons sanitaires and similar societal restrictions) have been implemented in numerous countries and territories around the world. These restrictions were established with the intention to reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID19.

By April 2020, about half of the world’s population was under some form of lockdown, with more than 3.9 billion people in more than 90 countries or territories having been asked or ordered to stay at home by their governments. Although similar disease control measures have been used for hundreds of years, the scale of those implemented in the 2020s is thought to be unprecedented.

For example, Melbourne has experienced 6 blockades from March 2020 to October 17, 2021, with a total of 262 days of blockade. Buenos Aires has been locked down for 234 days.

If you are lockdown at home one week or two weeks or one month or two months or even three months… How do you feel?(Specially in China) Will you feel like this? “in those days people will seek death and will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them.”.

Prophet Joel also predicted the locusts will come out before the End Day. What did he say? Joel 1:4 says,

“What the cutting locust left,
    the swarming locust has eaten.
What the swarming locust left,
    the hopping locust has eaten,
and what the hopping locust left,
    the destroying locust has eaten.”

Are they symbolized the COVID19(Corona virus)? The new coronavirus keeps mutating to harm people, that almost all people has been infected. If you are not infected with Alpha, you may infected with Delta, even your not infected with Delta, you may infected with Beta or Gamma or Omicron… It’s same like this :

“What the Alpha virus left,
    the Delta virus has eaten.
What the Delta virus left,
    the Beta virus has eaten,
What the Beta virus left,
    the Gamma virus has eaten.
and what the Gamma virus left,
    the Omicron virus has eaten.

Revelation 9:7-10 “In appearance the locusts were like horses prepared for battle: on their heads were what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces, their hair like women’s hair, and their teeth like lions’ teeth; they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the noise of their wings was like the noise of many chariots with horses rushing into battle. 10 They have tails and stings like scorpions, and their power to hurt people for five months is in their tails. “

Scorpions’ tails stings the human body and releases venom to hurt them, just like the COVID19 releases virus. They are like the army with thousands horses(huge great army), and rushing into human’s body battling with human immune system. What are the locusts look like? Their heads looked like crown; their faces looked like human faces, their hair like women’s hair, and their teeth like lions’ teeth… Is that like this?


Did the 5th trumpet really sound? Is that really the locusts which symbolized the corona virus? Are they really appeared or we still need to wait? After considering the above evidence, we believe that the locusts shall be symbolizing the corona virus. For the four trumpets have already sounded and fulfilled, after that would be the fifth trumpet sound(locusts appear). And the COVID-19 which is the new virus from the bottomless pit, it means this virus does not exist on the earth before, so it should be the symbol of the disaster of the 5th trumpet.

Revelation 9:11 “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.”

Revelation 9:12 “The first woe has passed; behold, two woes are still to come.”

Something very interesting about the Revelation of the 5th to 7th trumpets disaster that only saying of them, not other Seals or Trumpets. That is before the another disaster come, the previous disaster has to pass. But the others did not say has to pass, what does it mean? Maybe that means for other seals opened or trumpets sounded will last till to the End Day.

How long will be the 5th disaster hold? We have no idea but God knows. The Revelation said it hurt people 5 months. We know the average of each church is 6 months the symbolized period, please read “the seven churches and seven stars“, so does it mean it occupies the 5/6 of the last church Laodicea? When the 6th trumpet sounded, it will “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates”. What does it mean?

It means all 144000 saints has been sealed complete, please read chapter <144000 and a great multitude>. So what does it mean the disaster of 5 months of locusts? Maybe 5 months means it’s almost the whole witnessing period of the last church Laodicea. And surely when the 6th trumpet sounded, it is the end for sealing saints, for it has completed.

Although the sealing saints has completed, they has to witnessing one month more. And a final month will last to the 6th trumpet period, and the beast will make war on 2 witnesses and kill them when they finish witnessing the “1260 days” period. Maybe this is also the last month of the 42 months period of the beast.

After the disaster of 5th trumpet, the 6th trumpet will sound soon, and this is the great disaster – the Great Tribulation will come. Why we can say that? What is the 6th trumpet symbolic? What happen when it sounded?

Joel 2:1,2,31

for the day of YHWH is coming; it is near,
a day of darkness and gloom,
    a day of clouds and thick darkness!
Like blackness there is spread upon the mountains

31 The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of YHWH comes.

Let’s see the 6th trumpet.
