The 5th Trumpet and 5th Vial
5th Trumpet:  And the fifth angel sounded the blast of a trumpet; and I saw a star fall down from the sky of heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key to the lock of the depthless abyss, the infernal deep and the bottomless pit.  And he opened up the holes in the ground, the cisterns and wells of the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the bottomless pit, from the depthless infernal, from the holes in the ground; in the manner as the smoke of a great burning, smoking furnace; and the sunlight as rising in the east and the blowing air from its’ original place was darkened from the smoke of the holes in the ground, the cisterns, the wells, the abyss and the pit.  And there came out, and escaped, and spread abroad from the smoke, locusts upon the whole ground, land and regions of the earth: and unto them was given authority, liberty, mastery and power, in the manner of scorpions of the earth with a sting, which have power, force and strength.  And it was commanded them that, they should not hurt or injure the grass or herbage and vegetation of the earth, neither any greenish thing, neither any tree; but only those human beings who have not the true seal of protection, of the very exceeding God, in their foreheads.  And to them it was commanded and given them, that they should not outright destroy and kill or slay them, but for the intent and purpose to torture, cause pain and vex them, that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was in the manner as the torment of a stinging scorpion, when a scorpion hits and strikes, to sting a human being.  And in those days shall human beings seek death, and shall not be able to find it; and shall desire to obtain to die and being able to die off, or be slain and death shall escape, flee and vanish from them.  And the shapes and resemblance of the locusts, were like the manner unto horses ready and prepared unto battle or a series of warfare; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of human beings.  And they had hair, as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the same manner as the teeth of lions.  And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sounding tone of their wings, was as the sound of chariots of a great many horses running with hast to battle or a series of warfare.  And they had tails in the like manner, unto a stinging scorpion and they had stinging, pricking tails: and their force, mastery and power were to hurt and injure human beings for five months.  And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the depthless, infernal abyss, the deep bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue, is Abaddon, that is, a destroying angel; but in the Greek tongue, his name is Apollyon; a destroyer.  One woe is past; and, lo, behold, there come two woes more, hereafter. [Revelation 9:1-12].
When the “fifth angel sounds” the “fifth trumpet,” he is given “the key” which opens the “bottomless pit.” The “bottomless pit” is the interior of the earth. The only way to open into the interior of the earth is to open the surface of the earth’s crust. Upon the surface of the earth, there are volcanic vents. When there remains “five months” before the end of the Great Tribulation Period, this angel is given authority from God to open these pathways beneath the surface, where certain demonic beings dwell. From this study, it is possible to determine, these demons have made an appearance upon the earths’ surface in ancient times and now, from the hundreds, perhaps even several thousand erupting volcanoes, they will escape from the bottomless pit along the earth’s tectonic boundaries, from these volcanic vents for the sole purpose of tormenting lost humanity. The saved will be present during this fifth trumpet (1st woe) and the sixth trumpet (2nd woe); until the seventh trumpet (3rd woe) sounds, which announces the Rapture of all the saved from the earth.
These demons are from the group associated with Michael the archangel, while they were still perfect. After their fall, they became “evil” spiritual beings, called demons. They will cause the earthquakes and volcanoes on the earth, in order to torment and destroy humanity.
Revelation 9:1-12 – 5th trumpet – a massive chain of worldwide volcanic eruptions and releasing of demonic beings from the earth’s interior, which torment lost humanity for five months.
05. This is the release of demonic beings from the interior of the earth. They will torment lost humanity for the remaining five months or 150 days, to the very end of the Great Tribulation Period. This is the first “Woe” upon the earth.
The True Christian Believers, that is, the Saved are still on the earth during this event.
5th Vial: And the fifth angel poured forth his broad shallow cup and vial upon the seat of power of the beast; and his kingdom and realm of rule was obscured, blind and full of darkness; and they chewed and gnawed their tongues because of the anguish and pain; And blasphemed and spoke evil, to defame the very exceeding God of the abode of heaven, because of their anguish, and pain, and their ulcerous sores, and did not repent or think differently, nor reconsider, because of their acts, deeds and labors. [Rev. 16:10-11].
Revelation 16:10-11 – 5th plague – a massive pyroclastic holocaust from volcanic lava upon wicked humanity.
Phase Five: 6th Seal, 5th Trumpet, 5th Vial
[Revelation 6:14-15] And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
Revelation 9:1-12 –  And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.  And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.  And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.  And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.  And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.  And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.  And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.  And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.  And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.  And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.  And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.  One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
[Revelation 16:10-11] And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
When all the tectonic plates of the earth have completed their massive worldwide slippage, not one island or mountain will have its original geographical location. Their fixed latitudinal and longitudinal set of coordinates in degrees of minutes and seconds will be changed. This great shifting will produce a volcanic chain of eruptions that will send mankind into the dens and rocks of the mountains. The bottomless pit is the earth’s interior being a great fiery furnace. When the crust along the tectonic boundaries open, there will be catastrophic volcanic eruptions like the world has never seen. Only dim outlines of the heavenly bodies will be seen from the earth. When these boundaries are opened, spiritual demonic beings will be released and torment lost humanity for the last five months remaining of the Great Tribulation Period.
In Revelation 8:13, the Scriptures proclaim a warning by saying: Woe, woe, woe to those who inhabit the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound! This 5th trumpet sounds and releases these demonic beings through the volcanic vents from the earth’s interior. They torment lost humanity for five months or 150 days. This event begins a period of “five months” (5 x 30 = 150 days) before the end of the Great Tribulation Period, which is 70 days before the “last trump” (I Corinthians 15:51-52 & II Thessalonians 4:16-18) announcing the Rapture of the saved from the earth, since the demons are instructed not to hurt the saved, “but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.” The full text of this 5th trumpet “Woe” is found in Revelation 9:1-11. The “Saved”will be on the earth during this event!
5 Months or 5 x 30 Biblical Days = 150 Days
5th /35 days — 6th /35 days — 7th /35 days — + 45 Days of Wrath Period
105 Days — 45 Days = 150 Days
