Revelation 9:11

This is the great dragon of chapter 12, Satan or Azazel. He has a number of names, but in each case, he is the king of all the demons, Lucifer, who became Satan.

John W. Ritenbaugh
Satan (Part 1)



Revelation 9:11

Abaddon means "destruction" and Apollyon means "destroyer." A destroying spirit has deceived mankind. Because man is deceived, he does not realize that he has been the dupe of a destroying spirit.

Thus mankind, with these awesome, somewhat godlike powers and intellect, uses them to destroy, to maim, to sear, to rape, to exploit. It happens on a massive scale. It also happens in individual relationships with one another. It is not confined to the great and mighty things, which are only an accumulation of small things allowed to become big.

This destroying, deceiving spirit, through his minions, the demons, is able to deal with us on an individual basis. He can deceive us into using our powers to go counter to what God intended, to what God instructed all the way back in the Garden of Eden. He says there that we are to dress and to keep, to do things that produce positive results and beauty everywhere we go and in everything we do.
