THE NAME OF THE ANGEL OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT is Abaddon, in Hebrew, and in Greek it is Apollyon. The name means “destroyer”. What fitting names for Satan, the one who has destroyed and ruined every person who has given control of their hearts and lives to the powers of darkness. Before the world as we know it will end, there will be a great purging, called the wrath of the Lamb (Rev.6:16,17). At that time God will reveal the awful reality of spiritual warfare when He unleashes demonic powers upon the earth. God’s Holy Spirit in His Church has restrained these powers until His church has been raptured out of the way (2 Thess.2). The people who are not sealed by God, those who have given their hearts and lives to the counterfeit Christ, will discover what is behind the deception. It will be so painful that they will want to die, but death will escape them. Revelation was written to Christians so we would warn people of the coming wrath and the reality of the spiritual war.
