The Angel of the Abyss – JXN Cloud Podcast
The first four angelic trumpets fly by pretty quick in Revelation, but things slow down when the fifth trumpet sounds. Suddenly there's an angel with a key to the Abyss and weird locusts and all kinds of things. Who's this angel? What are the locusts? In this episode we frame the angel as a bad guy, which is taken by many scholarly interpreters. In the next episode we'll address the possibility of it being a good guy.
