Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. – Rev. 9:3-4

Have you ever read the Book of Revelation? At the end of this age, plagues and judgments will wash over the earth. Locusts will arise from the “bottomless pit” (v 2) with the power to “torment” (v 5) anyone who is not marked with the “seal of God” (v 4). The suffering will be agonizing! “Men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them” (v 5). But those with the “seal of God on their foreheads” (v 4) will be protected and stay safe.

God protects His people. The Book of Revelation can be overwhelming and scary! But when you are marked by the “seal of God” – the blood of Jesus! – you have nothing to fear. The blood of Jesus protects God’s people from even the worst temptation and destruction! The blood of Jesus sets men free and makes men whole. Satan – our enemy – is real! The end of the world will come. But the blood of Jesus triumphs over all. His blood is always stronger than anything and everything else.

Do you have the blood? Then rejoice! Because you have nothing to fear.

“Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.” – Ex. 12:13


Jesus, thank You for Your blood! Thank You that Your blood protects me from all the schemes of the evil one. Thank You that Your blood protects me from the destruction that will come to every man and woman who is not one of God’s people! I am so grateful that You protect me, in Jesus’ name.
