Q. Do you think the locusts of rev 9:3 are real locusts as we know them or a new breed of insects? Verse 4 also says they are not to harm those who have the seal of God on their foreheads. If these are the 144k Jews, will the other believers in the world at that time be tortured by them?
A. I think these locusts are demonic creatures. I say that because they have a king (Rev. 9:11) According to Proverbs 30:27 natural locusts have no king The only ones in Revelation who are said to have the seal of God in their foreheads are the 144,000 witnesses of Rev. 7:1-8. In my opinion, everyone else on Earth, believer or not, will be fair game for these locusts.
