The Bottomless Pit Has Opened!

Dear Revival-Fire Church Family,

I want to share something with you that the Lord revealed unto me several months ago as I was praying about some things, but He did not release me to send this message out until now. This is a revelation that we all need to hear & allow the word of the Lord to minister to us in our lives regarding the days ahead. This message is not to scare you…it is to prepare you!

For a few years now, I have wondered whether the “Great Tribulation” that Jesus spoke of is still “future”, or had it already begun. I must say that I have felt for some time now, that it had indeed begun already. This revelation that the Lord gave me has to do with what Rev. 9 speaks of…”the bottomless pit”. This message is in no way an “exhaustive” explanation or teaching on this subject…in fact, the Lord actually told me that there will be those who read this message that He will speak to & add to this message from their own illumination from Him:

Rev 9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
Rev 9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
Rev 9:3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
Rev 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
Rev 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he strikes a man.
Rev 9:6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
Rev 9:7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
Rev 9:8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
Rev 9:9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
Rev 9:10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
Rev 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

As you many of you know, the Lord brings many people to our ministry from all over the world…both individuals & also many pastors & leaders. In the past several months, I have heard from many how they have been feeling fearful, depressed & even confused…& unable to see what the Lord was saying or wanting them to do in their lives. We recognize that it the enemy trying to defeat God’s people & it is vitally important that we all stand in His victory. Back in the beginning of May as I was praying & I asked Him what was happening in these many people’s lives. The Lord immediately spoke to me & told me what was happening – He said that “the bottomless pit had opened”. His answer shook me, but I immediately had a witness in my spirit & recognized that this was true.

He instantly began to “download” this to me & give me “illumination” on what did mean. The feelings that people are beginning to have…confusion & even depressed thoughts, are coming because this bottomless pit has now opened & the smoke has ascended & begun to darken the Sun & air around us. Then back in July, I received a “report” stating that multiple thousands of pastors are discouraged & wanting to quit. The bottomless pit HAS been opened & now many of those who were developing spiritual “sight” are now having greater difficulty in hearing, seeing, knowing what the Lord is saying to them. Confusion & even depression is trying to take hold of many of God’s people. In the natural realm, if someone will stand around a campfire, the smoke will “ascend” up from the fire & begin to sting their eyes & their eyes will tear & they will have very limited “vision”, as long as the smoke can irritate their eyes.

In the same way, the bottomless pit opening can be likened to the spiritual darkness that many know is coming & many are now being affected by the “smoke” that has begun to ascend up from this pit. It is very important that we keep our spiritual composure & stand strong amidst this…we cannot let our spiritual composure wain or diminish. Just as In the natural, one must TURN from source of the smoke…& shield their eyes from being irritated. Even so, now, we must TURN away from what is going on around us & in the world & not allow it to affect our faith. For this is just the beginning, as more is to come, for now that the pit has opened. In verse 3-6, we see that locusts will come out of the bottomless pit. Are these literal locusts? Perhaps, but what the Lord impressed upon me is that they are demon powers that will attack people on the Earth. In verse 6, it says that “And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them“.

I sensed that part of this is actually talking about demon spirits attacking men with thoughts of suicide. Yes…if we truly read verse 6, we see that this is actually what it is saying. I have had several people contact me & share with me how they have recently been dealing with such suicidal thoughts, but were unable to die….they wanted to die, but couldn’t kill themselves. Now, I am not saying that these “locusts” will not actually be “seen” as a physical manifestation in the time ahead…I am just stating that what is going on right now, is mostly in the spiritual realm, but the manifestation of this is being seen in people’s lives.  Now, there is something of great importance in verse 4. It says that these locusts only have power (authority) to attack those who do NOT have the seal of God in their foreheads. This is significant & we all must look at our hearts & lives to reconcile this reality before God.

This is the day that all who call themselves “God’s people” must truly repent in their lives & we are to do as 2 Peter 1:10 says: “Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall“. Many of you already know that the “great falling away” has already begun. This “opening of the pit” is part of this very thing. People are now being seriously attacked & buffeted & many are not able to deal with the things that they are presently experiencing, when before they had never had any such problem standing through their trials. This is the torment spoken of in verse 5…people will want to die, but will be unable to die. This is a “vicious cycle” of feeling like they can’t go on living any longer like this & feeling like taking their lives is the only answer…but at the same time, knowing that to do so, is the very worst thing a person could ever do in their life! Being in this condition would be a living nightmare…a true torment of inner pain!!!

Verses 7-10 tell us the attributes of these demon locusts. These locusts are prepared for battle & that is why God’s people must stand fast in these days & not let their minds & hearts be compromised with these strong attacks against their thoughts. Today is the day of spiritual warfare…this is what we have all studied & prepared for…it is now time to fight!!! This is not the time to just lay down & let the enemy devour us! The crowns that were “as it were crowns like gold” speaks of the “alluring” falsehoods that will manifest in this time. As the saying goes…”not all that glitters is gold”. There are going to be things going on in churches that will have appearance of “gold” & being “beautiful, valuable & enduring”, but will not be the real thing…only a counterfeit! We have already seen some of this with the entrance of the “kundalini spirit” in the churches. Yes, there is the real thing…thee are “godly manifestations”…but there is also a counterfeit!

The “were as the faces of men” speaks to me of having an “appearance” of spiritual “maturity”. The “hair of women” represents “spiritual covering”, as 1Cor. 11:15 says. I sense that these two things are religious spirits that will affect people’s lives. These demons will attempt to attack those who do not have their hearts & lives surrendered to the Lord or are not spiritually sound in maturity & the covering of the Lord. I sense that these religious spirits will bring in doctrines that will cause people to deviate from the truth of the Gospel. Remember, that “pride goes before destruction & a haughty spirit before a fall” (Prov. 16:18). We need to remember: “let him that thinks he stands take heed lest he fall” (1Cor 10:12). The teeth which “were as the teeth of lions” imply that these doctrines will be received as from “the Lion of the Tribe of Judah”, but they will really be from “our adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walking about, seeking whom he may devour” (1Pet. 5:8). Those “teeth” will destroy those who are taken by them!

We cannot forget…”For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears & they shall turn away their ears from the truth & shall be turned unto fables (2 Tim 4:3-4). The word “fables” means “invented falsehood”. The religious spirits will invent falsehoods that will entice people away from the truth. The “breastplates of iron”, speaks of a “false” righteousness, which many are now beginning to succumb to in these last days! A breastplate of iron is man-made…the breastplate of righteousness is God made. There will be many false teachings coming in the time ahead, which will cause men to deviate from the truth. This ONE thing is a BIG one, as people are already being drawn into a false move of “legalism”, which has been slowly creeping into the body of Christ for years.

Many have already lost hold of the truth of faith, grace & salvation & have fallen into a faith & grace that is self worship & has no repentance or no real accountability before God…this is the Laodicean church in Rev. 3. Many are also returning back under a type of legalism under the law. These both are taking people “full swing”, to one side or the other! God’s people must be sound & balanced in the word of God…we are not to swing to the left or the right…we are to walk “straight”, as Jesus said…”enter in the strait gate”. This is the narrow way & is the only way we can stay balanced in Him. I cannot take the time to address everything about this subject at this time, but I will send out another teaching soon on faith, grace & salvation…which is balanced as the word of God reveals it. There are some deep revelations that God’s people need to receive there also!

Verse 10 tells us that the source of power for these demons to operate & exercise control & torment over these people is…Abaddon & Apollyon…ie, this is “the destroyer”. This is the same “king” that was released upon & killed all of the 1st born in Egypt, when God sent Moses to deliver His people. This “king” of the bottomless pit is strong & we need to be actively covered by the Blood of Jesus so we will be able to stand against the attacks of this very thing that is now beginning to come forth in the Earth. We must recognize what God has said about this time & “recon” ourselves before the Lord, as never before. Many of God’s people have forgotten about the things He said would happen:

Daniel 7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;
Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Revelation 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

This is NOT the time to fall into a mediocre & compromised Christianity that would say “I have nothing to worry about, because I said a little prayer & asked Jesus to be my Lord & Savior”. It is not the time for anyone to say: “I go to church, I pray & read my Bible, so I am saved!”. It is not the time to think in our minds, that “our own works” somehow make us righteous or we have somehow “earned” ourselves a “ticket to Heaven”. It is not the time to base our outcome in all eternity, on a life that is ruled by “self” & thinking that “we are saved & have no need for change”. These are all some of the very areas that will empower these “locusts” to have the right to attack in the time ahead….it is called complacency! Jesus says that we are to be “zealous & repent” (Rev. 3:19)…zealous means “burning hot or boiling”!!!

We must “Be sober, be vigilant; because our adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour” (1Pet 5:8). I quoted this again because I sense that this scripture is MORE applicable…more valid for our future, then ever before. For the greatness of this time will show the multitudes of “believers” their true standing in God’s Kingdom. The enemy is going to attack & manifest many greatly in the time ahead, than he ever has before. I do not say any of this to make people afraid..if anything I say this to instill a healthy dose of the reverential fear of the LORD in God’s people, if needed. The time for practicing “greasy grace & sloppy agape” is over…it is time for all who call themselves Christians, to stand up in the Lord & fight the good fight of faith! For the real battle has already begun, but we do have hope in this…Rev. says:

Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Those that partook of the Passover in Egypt, overcame the destroyer, as they consumed the “lamb that was slain” & applied the blood to the lintel & doorposts. The lintel & doorposts speaks of our hearts & of our being changed in our lives, because we “eat” what God gives us to eat. Jesus said in Mat 4:4: “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God“. When we agree with what God says, then His word become our “testimony…this is when we are truly in agreement with God. “The blood on the lintel & doorposts is having Jesus’ blood actively applied to the entry way of our lives…which is the heart. We must stay covered by His blood. & living our lives with any sins confessed & repented of…this is part of dieing to self.  Remember, what Jesus said about the heart:

Mat 15:18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
Mat 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
Mat 15:20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashed hands defiles not a man.

We are to “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” (Prov. 4:23). We do this by actively applying Jesus’ blood to our heart. The word “keep” here means:  “to guard, watch, watch over, keep, to preserve, guard from dangers, to keep, observe, guard with fidelity, to guard, keep secret, to be kept close, be blockaded, watchman”. We must keep a watchful heart, as the darkness is now come & we must stand sober & be alert.

1Th 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
1Th 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.
1Th 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
1Th 5:4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
1Th 5:5 You are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
1Th 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
1Th 5:7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
1Th 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
1Th 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
1Th 5:10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

We all should know that the “coming of the Lord draws near” & many things will be happening as He ushers in His return for His own. We cannot be fixated on the “smoke”…we cannot be fixated on the “locusts” or any other things that would try to gain our attention or get us off course with what the Lord is wanting us to do. Now is the time that we must do what Jesus said referring to the last days: “when these things begin to come to pass, then look up & lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near” (Luke 21:28).

This is powerful & it speaks of TWO things! First, we must LOOK UP – we are to look up away from the smoke & the distractions that will erode our faith. Second, we must “life up” our heads…ie, “encourage ourselves”, because our time of redemption is near! None of this is to make us afraid or instill fear in us…God just wants us prepared for what is ahead! The MOST important thing that we can do from now on is to truly seek the Lord’s face & spend a lot of time in His presence. This is imperative & I cannot stress this enough!!! We must dive into the presence of God, as never before…for only as we will truly “dwell in the secret place of the most High, so we will abide under the shadow of the Almighty”!

Anyway…we pray that this teaching will encourage, exhort & inspire each of you in your walk with the Lord!
If He gives any of you more “illumination” on any part of this message, please let me know, so we can all grow from it!
God bless you all!

In His great love & mercy,

  1. You have been a busy fellow lately!! Four messages in one night!! Good going, bro!

    While I was reading this one what came to me is that the star fallen from Heaven is satan and he was given the key to open the bottomless pit. My thought is that he opened this pit when he came down to earth, how many years ago we do not know, and the demons have been troubling mankind since man’s creation. I do believe that these attacks will greatly increase in the last days.

    Also, the spiritual darkness has already begun and will only get darker and darker as we get closer to the return of Jesus.

    Love you, bro.

    • Hey Bro!

      Yes, that is a very interesting thought there! While we do not know when this “star” actually did fall from Heaven…since the Lord revealed this message to me, He has since then also told others that the bottomless pit had indeed opened too & many demons are being released on the Earth in these last days!

      I love you too, bro!

Please leave a comment, if you want, but if your comment is to argue, to be rude or to in any way attack, it will not be posted or responded to. God commands us to walk in love & to speak the truth in love. May the LORD richly bless you!
