The Locust Army


Watering the Garden


The Bible speaks of a powerful group of people that are to appear on the scene and gain control in the last days. They are described as being strong, having the power to ripe apart as a lion and causing days of darkness upon the earth. The palmerworm and the cankerworm are different stages of the locust. On their heads they have crowns which indicate they have power.  These “locusts” are to completely strip bare the people. This brings to mind the words of Jesus to Peter when he stated that Satan wished to “sift him as wheat”.

Joel says they are to pass this information on from generation to generation.

Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation. That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpillar eaten. (Joel 1:3-4)

They are going to desecrate or strip his vine, the church. 

For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion. He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches thereof are made white. (Joel 1:6-7) 

He says to blow the trumpet and warn the people that these enemies are more powerful then any have ever been throughout all history. These are to be a facet of the “Day of the Lord”.

Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. (Joel 2:1-2)

In the book of Revelation they are given power resembling a scorpion. How does a scorpion operate? Remember these are men and they can only harm those that do not have the seal of God.

And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. (Revelation 9:3-4)

These locusts are prepared for battle. The have power and they appear as glorious princes of the people but note they will only be able to operate for five months. The same amount of time as an actual locusts which is May through September. Their leader is also revealed; Abaddon and Apollyon which means destroyer.                                                                                                                                                       

And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails; and their power was to hurt men 5 months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. (Revelation 9:7-11)

Our Father gives this promise concerning the Locusts army. “And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.” Joel 2:25 It is interesting to note that God states he sent them among us.


We have learned that during the Day of the Lord, an army of powerful men called locusts will appear for 5 months and bring harm to those who do not have the seal of God in their foreheads.

Our Father appreciates the fact that you are trying. May God’s blessing be upon this

study of His word, Amen.
