Rev. 9:13-21                    THE SIXTH TRUMPET

Intro:  v.13 The place of mercy becomes the place of greatest judgement.  When men 

reject the love and mercy of God, all they have left is His judgment and wrath.  Ill. 

many people will not believe that God is a God of wrath  But, this will never change 

the facts!  Deut. 4:24; John 3:18, 36.  The saints prayer in chapter 6:10 is finally being 

answered.



  I.  v.14-15                     THE FALLEN ANGELS

    A.  v.14  They Come From A Distinct Place - Euphrates River.  Very prominent 

	in the Bible.  It is the place where man, sin, murder, apostacy and religion were all 

	born.

    B.  v.15  They Come For A Distinct Period Of Time - The were prepared for 

	THE hour.  God is running on a precise timetable.  He is in control!

    C.  v.15  They Come For A Distinct Purpose - to slay 1/3 of the human race!  (Ill. 

	Demons are over world powers - Eph.6:18; Dan. 10.  These demon powers will 

	control the world and cause the deaths of billions!



 II.  v.16-19                     THE FEARFUL ARMY

    A.  The Number Of The Army - 200,000,000!  This was the total population of 

	the world in Johnís day!  China had an army of 200,000,000 in 1964.  It is around 

	that	number today!  This is a column of men 1 mile deep and 87 miles long!

    B.  The Nature Of This Army - (v.17)  Human or Demonic?  Human described in

	symbolic fashion, demonically energized!

	1.  Breastplates of Fire - fire = red; Jacinth = blue; Brimstone = yellow

	2.  Heads as Lions - Fierce looking and acting.  Perhaps a symbolic way of 

              describing a demonically inspire army.

	3.  Weapons - Weapons of Hell.  (Possibly a description of modern empliments 

	     of war.)  (Ill. The reality of Hell.  God allows all the horrors of hell to visit the 

	     earth.  Still, men will not repent.  1/3 of all people living die!



III.  v.20-21                      THE FATAL ATTITUDE

    A.  v.20  The Spiritual Life

	1.  Demon Worship - Ill. College courses offered in witchcraft; Voodoo; the 

	     Occult.  (Ill. Three Eís - Entertainment, Enlightenment, Enslavement!)

	2.  Idolatry - Men will worship the works of the hands.  Man is a religious 

	    animal. He will worship something.  Left to himself, he will focus his worship in the 

	    wrong direction.  If man doesnít fill the void in his life with Jesus, he will fill 

	    it with idols!

    B.  v.21  The Moral Life - (Ill. 4 biggest problems today!)

	1.  Murders - (Ill. Oklahoma, O.J., Ted Bundy, Jim Jones, Charlotte, etc.)  We 

             live in murderous times!  1.  There is no regard for human life.  2.  Apart for the 

	     grace of God, we are all capable of murder!  (Ill. Jer. 17:9)

	   a.  Abortion - In one year, more babies die from abortion than the total 

	        number of Jews murdered during Hitlerís reign in Germany!  Appro. 9,000,000!  1.6 

	       million a year here!  4,300 per day; 180 per hour; 3 per minute.  (Ill. This is why we

               need to be involved, and vote our convictions!)  (Ill. Jeremiah and John the Baptist!)

	2.  Sorceries - (Ill. Pharmakon = Pharmacy)  The use of drugs will increase.  It 

	     is possible that goverment will resort to mind-altering drugs to control the 	  

	     populace.  Drugs are preparing the world for Anti-christ!

	3.  Fornication - (Ill. Pornia = Pornagraphy)  Illicit sexual activity will mark that 

	     day.  (Ill. Adultery; Pre-marital sex, same sex relationships, pornography, 

	     etc.)The tribulation will be a sexually free time.  We are headed there now!

	     This displays a disregard for:  1.  Godís gift of sex;  2.  Oneís own body; 

	     3.  The institution of marriage.  We are already seeing an increase in 

             sexuality based programming, advertisement and literature.  Sex is everywhere!  

             (Ill. Porn is a 10 billion dollar indusrty.  85% goes into the pockets of organized 

	     crime.  18,000 outlets exist for the sale of porn.  20% of all new vidoes are 

	     pornographic.  There are 350 known child pornography magazines! And, it 

	     will get much worse!  Thereís more I could say!  (Ill. Computer sex, phone sex, 

	     cable sex!)

	4.  Thefts - Stealing.  Property will mean nothing.  People will have no personal

	     rights.  Whatever shreds of decency and innocence the world has left will be 

	     taken away during the Tribulation!



What is the worldís attitude concerning these things?  They will not repent, v.20!  It is 

the goodness of God that leads to repentance, Rom. 2:4, not His judgment!  If men 

will not get right under the cross, they will not get right under the whip!
