Romans 10:14 “But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?”
Matthew 9:37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.
Luke 10:2 He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.
… And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).
… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)
Matthew 24:21 For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.
Ezekiel 33:6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.
The term “birth pangs,” in terms of Bible prophecy, refers to certain convulsive geopolitical, geophysical, astrophysical, and worldwide socioeconomic events and issues scheduled to occur in the time leading up to Jesus Christ’s Second Advent (Second Coming). These are likened to the contractions experienced by a woman about to give birth, with those episodes increasing with frequency and intensity. Jesus’ foretelling of these birth pangs uses the word “sorrows” in His Olivet Discourse on end-time things to come. The Beast, NEOM Babylon, False Prophet-Mystery Religion, The ‘MARK.’ Plus MORE.

Revelaion 6:7 And when he had opened the fourth (4) seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part (25%) of the earth (roughly 2 BILLION people), to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Commentary; ‘pale’ suggests disease, death and dying. Disease and death are the normal results for those subjected to endless warring. Cholera, famine, infection, no clean water, no housing, no medicine, no hospitals, etc., all play a part in continuing to kill those who were not killed in direct fighting. These are normally the ‘innocent’ or the civilians, not the military. Hell follows, why? Because the vast majority of peoples in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere have rejected the gospel of salvation by Jesus Christ for just over 2,000 years. They follow Satan’s lies (Islam) and deceptions with other false religions (Hindu deities) and various deceiving doctrines. Even though they appear ‘innocent’ by the world’s standards, they are none-the-less ‘unsaved’ because of their rejection of Christ. Time is up, they unfortunately die because of the effects of war, in an unsaved state … hence ‘hell awaits them’. This is truth.
Sixth Trumpet: The Four (4) Fallen Angels from the Euphrates River
Revelation (13 Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third (33.3%) of mankind (Roughly 2.5 BILLION people).
Four (4) Altar Horn Angels and Four (4) Fallen Angels of the Euphrates River:
… “And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month and a year, for to slay the third part of men.” (Rev. 9:13-15). (Emphasis added).
Commentary: 4 angels (altar horns) authorizing one special trumpet angel, to go ahead and let loose the four fallen angels bound in the Euphrates river. The four (4) altar horn angels are in close proximity / before God’s throne. God gives the order to commence the slaying the third part of men and the four (4) altar horn angels blow their horns notifying the special trumpet angel. The special trumpet angel is one of the seven (7) trumpet angels assigned to pour out God’s wrath on evil mankind. The special trumpet angel is now authorized by God (through the announcement of the four altar horn angels) to go ahead and release or loosen the four (4) fallen angels that have been bound in the Euphrates river, for millennia. The bible is silent on what transgression these fallen angels committed in millennia past, however, we are told that they are bound (or hand-cuffed, zip-tied in modern terminology). These four (4) fallen angels are apparently exceedingly strong and dangerous, for them to have been bound for so long. However, the last verse 9:15 indicates that these evil fallen angels will still serve God’s purpose by executing his judgement against mankind, by slaying up to a third part of all men.
Both holy and evil fallen angels have roles to play in God’s unfolding drama throughout the Tribulation period. Some angels receive commands and decisions from God and announce God’s commands and intentions. Other holy angels are responsible for receiving these announcements and commandments and executing God’s will accordingly. These angels are given the necessary authority and power to render God’s judgments in the manner decided by God. In this particular case, the trumpet angel is given the authorization to let loose four (4) evil fallen angels from their imprisonment. They in turn have the power and ability to slay a third part of man, and are thusly let loose to accomplish the will of God. Angels have profound and differing roles in the divine, heavenly organization of God’s governance. Through God’s omnipresence, he decided on the exact time to allow the four (4) imprisoned fallen angels to slay a third part of men over an exact time period of a year, month, day and hour. This is an interesting inter-play between holy angels and fallen angels. Notice that there is a doubling of angels; four (4) holy altar horn angels and four (4) evil fallen angels of the Euphrates River. An equal number of angels are likewise impacting an equal number of angels. The net effect is the slaying of a third part of evil mankind during the Tribulation Period.
Four (4) Harvesting Angels:
… “And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle on the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.” (Rev. 14:14-20). (Emphasis added).
Commentary: This verse can be a little confusing when trying to keep track of the number of angels involved and which angel is saying what to which angel. These verses start off by identifying a special, glorious looking angel with a crown on his head, sitting on a cloud having a nasty looking harvesting sickle. He looks powerful and strong and sat like unto the Son of man (similar in fashion to Jesus Christ, but this is an angel and not Christ). He is waiting for instructions from central command (heavenly temple). Suddenly, a messenger angel leaves the heavenly temple and tells the big angel guy, with the nasty sickle, to go down to earth and start doing his thing…using his sickle to harvest evil men. As if this wasn’t enough, God decides to double-up on harvesting angels with nasty, sharp sickles. Therefore, he sends out of his heavenly temple yet another (second) angel with a sharp sickle. There are now two angels with sharp sickles on the chess board. One has already been put into play and is doing what he was instructed to be doing by the messenger angel. The second angel with another sharp sickle, is now on the chessboard also, but he has not been put into play yet. He is also awaiting instructions and permission to begin his task. Just as a messenger angel was sent out of the heavenly temple to instruct the angel with a crown to start harvesting, a second messenger angel is sent to instruct the second angel with a sharp harvesting sickle to commence his harvesting of evil men on earth.
These verses have an exact doubling or duplication of effort. A double (2) equals God’s solid confirmation of a matter, the addition of an equal measure of weight or importance. There is one instance of an angel executing God’s will at the command of a messenger angel. This then again happens a second time, the same way. Another executing angel receives authority and permission to begin his job, just as the first executing angel did. The only difference between the two executing, sickle harvesting angels is that the first angel is described as glorious, with a crown, and perhaps having some kind of lofty heavenly status. The second executing, sickle harvesting angel is being authorized to harvest “clusters of vines, vine of the earth” and to throw them into the “winepress of God’s wrath”. I believe this last reference regarding the second harvesting angle is that he is being sent to harvest large groups of evil men. An evil man is represented as a grape. An evil group of men could be thought of as a cluster of grapes on a vine.
These verses have a couple of doubles (2). Two (2) harvesting angels with nasty, sharp sickles. Two (2) messenger angels with authority to instruct and authorize the harvesting angels to begin their work. All of this is orchestrated from central command headquarters (heavenly temple of God.) All the angels described are unique in their descriptions, appearances, actions, abilities and roles. Angels are not mindless, holy clones of one another, but have a uniqueness about them … just as man does. God applies his infinite diversity into his creation of both angels and men. No two men or two angels are exactly alike. That is a comforting thought, knowing that I am truly unique and special before God, in the manner he made me (and you!). We are not clones, genetic duplications or mass produced organisms. Neither are angels.
Four-fold Reference to Angels Proclaiming “Woe”:
- … “And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound.” (Rev. 9:13). (Emphasis added).
- … “One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.” (Rev. 9:12). (Emphasis added).
- … “The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe commeth quickly.” (Rev. 11:14). (Emphasis added).
- … “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath a but a short time.” (Rev. 12:12). (Emphasis added).
Commentary: Three (3) woes, three (3) angels, three (3) voices, three (3) trumpets (four groups of three!). Angels are exclaiming or proclaiming woe to men. Woe; a condition of deep suffering from misfortune, affliction or grief, ruinous trouble, calamity, sorrow, anguish, woe, regret means distress of mind. Sorrow implies a sense of loss or a sense of guilt and remorse. Grief implies poignant sorrow for an immediate cause. Anguish suggests torturing grief or dread. Woe is deep or inconsolable grief or misery. Regret implies pain caused by deep disappointment, fruitless longing, or unavailing remorse, nagging regret for missed opportunities. These are strong words that explain the woe that comes upon mankind during the Tribulation. Woe One is described as demonic locusts/creatures (Rev. 9:1-11). Woe Two is described as a great earthquake killing 7,000 men after the two witnesses complete their testimony of Jesus Christ. (Rev. 11:3-13). Woe Three is described as the great wrath that the devil has when he is cast down to earth from heaven. (Rev. 12:9-12). The heavens are rejoicing because the devil has finally been kicked out of the country club for continuously causing discord of accusations. The devil has been doing this continuously for millennia and addressing the resident owner of the country club (God) about everyone he is accusing. The angel flying through heaven saying, “Woe, woe, woe” is providing both a warning and a prophecy. He is in effect saying ‘look out mankind, I know what’s coming your way and you are not going to like it.’ As is usually the case throughout Revelation, trumpets are used to get attention and make announcements.
But how can they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save them unless they believe in him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they believe in him (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear about him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” —Romans 10:14
