Q. First off I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your website and how much it has blessed me. I tell everyone I can about it. Now to my question. I just read your article Judging Planet Earth. In the article you said that only the 144,000 would be protected from the stings of the locusts. What will happen to those that have accepted Christ as savior before this judgment takes place and to those that accept him while suffering? Again I thank you for your site and pray that the anointing of the Lord stays with you as you stay faithful to Him.
A. Rev. 9:4 says the locusts can only afflict those who don’t have the seal of God in their foreheads. But according to Rev. 7:1-8 the only ones sealed like this will be the 144,000 witnesses. All others will be vulnerable. The locusts will inflict a scorpion-like sting that won’t be deadly, but will be so painful people will wish they could die. This judgment will last for 5 months.
