Yahushua,Yahuwah of this world, speaks parabolically in most of the Bible so those He does not desire know of what He speaks will not comprehend: Matthew 13:10-16. Knowing this we can assume Revelation 9:2-3 is parabolic and tells us of a great distress to come upon the world. A distress in which the vast majority who rely heavily upon Satan's Pharmacies (Pharmakeia) will not be able to get their fix for an extended period of time. How many people will die painfully agonizing deaths while others suffer incredible discomforts before they all will succumb to Satan for their fix? It's all beginning to come together perfectly. Some time possibly as soon as 23 September 2017 the rapture will occur and Yahuwah will take His chosen and watchmen while He will mark and safeguard His saved: Ezekiel 9:1-11; then, the mayhem will ensue. There'll be no food, water or electricity as all systems will fail so no one will go to work. Worst of all they'll be no drugs for a drug dependent mass all of whom will suffer horribly and many of whom will die. This will very effectively thin out the herd and bring all those who remain under subjection to Satan.
