Chapter 64. The Second and Third Woes

Abaddon/Apollyon is the title provided in Scripture for the fallen angelic king of the scorpion creatures that will scurry out of the abyss to commit more appalling crimes against humanity. Just as Abaddon/Apollyon will bring the first woe with him, it follows that the notorious Naphalim would be associated with the second and third woes.

Scripture foretold three woes will plague humanity in the days of the seven trumpet blasts that precede the wrath bowls tallied in Revelation 16. In the biblical context, a woe is defined as a “primary exclamation of grief expressed, as in woe or alas.” In Jesus’ end-time chronology oration to His disciples, Jesus referred to a time of woe “in the days” of and events that bring about the abomination, and the events that happen thereafter. Jesus orated the end-time events in a linear sequence of events marked with Jesus’ reference to Daniel’s account of the abomination to identify the midpoint of the last seven years, and to distinguish between the two tribulations/afflictions. I believe Jesus purposefully selected exacting words to record the linear sequence, words that included the Greek word tot’eh meaning then, when, and at that time, translated in Jesus’ oration as “then.”

Jesus’s woe marker in conjunction with Revelation 8–9 indicate the three woes dominate a period before and after the abomination beginning just before the Gog war. Accordingly, the three woes will occur after the fourth trumpet and through the “voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound.” And thus, “in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.”

The second woe occurs at the end of the three and a half-year commission of the two witnesses that begins at the start of the last seven years and ends at the time of the abomination.
