200 Million Chinese Horsemen Predicted in Revelation Chapter 9? – Part 5

“And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. 16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. 17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. 18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. 19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.” (Revelation 9:13-19)

As I have attempted to show in my “Revelation 9’s Locusts Are Not Revolution 9’s Beatles” series of blog posts the events of Revelation chapter 9 are not still future and are not to be fulfilled in a short period of time (e.g. within 7 years or 3.5 years). Neither did the prophesied events symbolized happen in or prior to 70 AD. The prophesied woes properly interpreted are SYMBOLICALLY associated with Islam. The first phase of its growth (fifth trumpet) and then in its Ottoman Empire phase (sixth trumpet). The Islam of the Middle Ages. This is what many Baptists and Protestants of the past believed. I’m not advocating anything new or arbitrary. As a new believer who was “dispensationally-inclined” (and consequently “hermeneutically challenged”) I used to think that the sixth trumpet pointed toward something still future : a massive army of 200 million Chinese soldiers riding on horses. I thank the Lord that my prophetic thinking has improved over the years.

I thought I would add some interesting audio links :
