Hello, John and Doves,The LORD is nothing if not "Kodesh," Hebrew for "Holy."He makes a prophecy through His holy prophets. Although the wording seems to indicatea singular fulfillment, the actual fulfillment plus applications are manifold.As such, the Revelation 9 Locusts may well refer to modern unmanned aircraft--drones.The MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper are just two such examples:Please see also:There are many more articles on the subject. Just type, "unmanned aircraft insect-like,"into your internet browser.In HaShem,Mike C._________________________________________________________________________________

"Revelation 9 Locusts/ Fairies Oh my! Was one spotted in the UK in 2008"
Okay first thing I do not believe in fairies...(unbeknownst to me one has passed away at that declaration.) However after doing some searching on Google for the stories behind certain legends I came across the link for the YouTube video I have listed above. ( I am sorry my email browser will not allow me to include the video inside of the email itself.)Personally I do not know what to think about this video (see minute 1:23-forward if you want to cut to the chase.) I know it is not a fairy like the poster of the video asks however, I actually wonder if it is something far more sinister like a demon locust from Revelations 9? See below for the verse quote. Watch this video and then read those verses again, I would be surprised if you did not see the context of Revelations 9 in a different way.( If you watch the video pay attention to the wings, the tail, and the sound of the wings.)Thanks,Tammy
1 The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. 2 When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. 3 And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. 4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5 They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes. 6 During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them.
7 The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. 8 Their hair was like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. 9 They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. 10 They had tails with stingers, like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months. 11 They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek is Apollyon (that is, Destroyer).
