Tweety, I checked and saw that this was not posted on our Bottf, so here it is:
Who is Abaddon
~~ Who is Abaddon ~~
Now we have people telling us Abaddon is Satan or some other evil being. I ask them to bring forth some Scripture showing this to be true.
First you must see that the trumpets of Revelation are the wrath of the Lamb. So who is the Lamb bringing his wrath upon? The servants of Satan of course, the children of the wicked one.
If you read Jer. 50 and 51 you will find that God said His people are his weapons of war. With his people he destroys the wicked.
Now with that established, let’s go into Revelation for proof of who this mighty angel is who binds Satan and cast him into the pit and shuts his up.
I have already proven by the Word that the locusts under the fifth trumpet are those horses in Joel two which is the powerful army of God going out to destroy the evil ones off this earth. Also go to Isa. 33 for more proof.
I have also proven that the bottomless pit is the whore church. Jer. 50 told God’s people to OPEN HER UP. The purpose of opening her up is to bring the wrath of the Lamb upon her.
Look at Rev. 9:1–a star fell from heaven unto the earth and the key of the bottomless pit was given to HIM. Keep this in mind — this Being who came upon earth to do a work for God, now possess the key of the pit.
He used this mysterious ’key’ to OPEN HER UP. He fulfilled the command given in Jer. 50 to open her up.
Right now, I am not dealing with the work of these mighty ones likened unto locusts. I am dealing with this one who has this KEY. This KEY is the answer and clue as to who this mighty Being is.
We haven’t really discussed the horses under the 6th trumpet; but I can assure you it is only more of these two witnesses job of bringing the wrath of the Lamb upon Babylon.
The king over them is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name is Abaddon or Apollyon.
Remember, Jesus has a new name which no man knows.
Rev. 19:11–And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth JUDGE AND MAKE WAR.
Now, I ask you , who is this? Is this an evil being? Who is THIS ONE?
You seem to think that because Abaddon is a destroyer, it proves Him to be Satan —- then how bout this one? It said it is righteousness that this one is JUDGING AND MAKING WAR.
v15–And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with is he should smite — What? — SMITE–the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and HE TREADETH the winepress of the FIERCENESS AND WRATH of Almighty God.
v16–And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
Now is there any question as to who this one is? It is the same one who is making war and smiting the nations. It is Jesus.
v17–An angel calls the fowls to come and eat the flesh of kings, captains, men and horses, and men both small and great.
EAT THEM UP. Wow. This is an angel of God calling them to come and EAT THESE PEOPLE.
Now, watch this next verse:
Rev. 20:1–And I saw an angel come down from heaven, HAVING THE KEY OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT and a great chain in his hand.
Now, If this is not the same angel of trumpet 5, to whom was given the key of the bottomless pit, I ask you how and when did the key be taken away from Abaddon and given to this one? Got any Scripture for it?
Don’t come trying to tell me, unless you have the Word of God saying it.
You can bring forth tons of twisted words and deceive the hearts of those who do not know the Word; but you cannot deceive those to whom God has given the truth.
Go back to Rev. 9:1—this angel who fell to the earth FROM HEAVEN –was given the key of the bottomless pit. With this key he opened up the pit—— so this makes him the angel of the pit– right?
v11–these horses going to battle as scorpions against Satan’s army has this mighty angel as their KING. He is the angel of the pit; he is KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
Now back to chapter 20. This angel comes down from Heaven — showing he still had access to Heaven – he had not fallen down as one who is away from God — he had fallen upon evil ones to bring them to judgment.
He comes down from Heaven and has the KEY of the bottomless pit and a great chain and he lays hold on the devil, satan, dragon, serpent, all the same being ( it is really a whole kingdom)–and bounds him (Satan) a thousand years.
And cast him into the bottomless pit, and SHUTS HIM UP. WOW!! HE SHUT SATAN UP. He closed his lying, deceiving mouth up. That is some more power, to shut up Satan’s lying mouth. All over this whole earth, Satan has been shut up. Isn’t that marvelous — we will not hear his lying mouths for a thousand years. No more deception.
But who did this? The angel who had the KEY OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT, ABADDON.
And you say this is Satan himself? MY, my. such deception and darkness.
Anyone here care to cast your vote as to who this mighty angel who shuts up Satan is?
