Revelation 9 / CERN Theory

Revelation 9/CERN Theory

Yesterday 7/3/22 CERN fired up its main hadron collider and it should be at full speed by 7/5/22.  In this blog I should like to briefly explain why this matters as we take a closer look at CERN, what it is, where it is, and how it might tie into the one of the future Revelation 9 judgments that will take place during the tribulation.  This is a theory, just a theory, I am not saying this as a fact, just a possibility.  Please note this as you read on.

The first question, what is CERN?

CERN (Council European Research Nuclear) is the European Organization for Nuclear Research.  This is the place where physicists and engineers probe the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter and its fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact; and it provides the scientists with insights into the fundamental laws of nature. CERN was founded in 1954; the CERN laboratory sits astride the France/Swiss border near Geneva. CERN’s main function is to provide the particle accelerators and other infrastructure needed for high-energy physics research.  As a result, numerous experiments have been constructed at CERN through international collaborations and for the purpose of the advancement of research and technology; at least that’s what they’re telling the public.

The instruments used at CERN are called particle accelerators and detectors. These accelerators boost beams of particles to sub-light speeds before the beams are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions. Many activities at CERN currently involve operating the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the many experiments from it. The LHC is the largest and most complex machine ever built by man. This LHC is housed in the LHC tunnel which is located 100 meters underground, in the region between the Geneva International Airport and the nearby Jura mountains. The majority of its length is on the French side of the border; but is uses a 27 km circumference circular tunnel with a massive circular network of pipes where the particles are accelerated through.  It’s like a huge underground circular race track built just for particles that are supercharged and accelerated and sub-atomic speeds and sent crashing into each other.  It’s sound safe, I guess, or not.   

The main site in Geneva hosts a large computing facility, which is primarily used to store and analyze data from their experiments.  CERN is also the birthplace of the World Wide Web, just in case some of you older folks still believe that Al Gore was the inventor.  The town in France where CERN is located is called “Saint-Genus-Pouilly.” The name Pouilly comes from the Latin “Appolliacum.”  In ancient Rome, a temple existed in this location and was built there in honor of the Roman god Apollo.  The people who lived there at that time believed that the Temple of Apollo was a gateway to the underworld. The main headquarter building of CERN is strategically built atop of this very location. Just outside of CERN’s main office is a statue of the Hindu god of destruction, Shiva. That’s the multi-armed dancing Hindi god, known for her many forms.

In Revelation 9, the Apostle John foretells of a coming judgment that will unleash the hordes of Hell upon certain people of the earth during the seven-year tribulation.  This is in context of the fifth trumpet judgment, again, occurring during the tribulation.  The people these demonic hordes will attack are those who are not saved, that is, those who don’t have ‘the seal of God’ on their foreheads. 

The Apostle John describes it this way, “Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. 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. And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.”                                                                                – Revelation 9:1-6

  • This judgment is in conjunction with the trumpet judgments, occurring during the first half of the tribulation.  This ‘star’ could be an angel, or a missile, or some other celestial object; we don’t know for sure.  We do know that it opens the ‘bottomless pit.’ 

This is the place in Hades known as the Abyss, it’s the ‘great gulf fixed’ that separates Abraham’s Bosom (now empty) from Gehenna, the place of Hell fire.

Jesus described it this way, “So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 “Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’ 25 But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. 26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’                                                                                                   – Luke 16:22-26

  • This ‘opening of the bottomless pit’ infers that a rift was opened in Hell and massive amounts of dark, superheated smoke was released into the air at this impact site which caused the area to be darkened. 

This smoke will be so thick that it will block the light of the sun in that area.  From the dense smoke these creatures (locust) will be released from Hell.  This explosion has the appearance of a super volcano erupting and spewing hot ash (‘like smoke of a great furnace’) into the air.  From the smoke, come these locusts. The word locust (Greek: akris) used here and in context with this passage ‘appear as monsters representing satanic agencies, let loose by divine judgments inflicted upon men for five months, the time of the natural life of the locust.”  Vine’s (p.375)

NOTE: These are NOT regular locust that can be killed or eaten by men; rather, they are supernatural creatures that come from Hell and are sent by God to torment all unsaved (unsealed) people for five months; the lifespan of a typical locust species.

These creatures target unsaved men, those who ‘don’t have the mark of God on their forehead.’  They don’t go after what normal locust pursue, ‘grass, green things, and trees.’  These creatures are going after unsaved people and their purpose is to torment them for five months.  This tells you that these creatures are from Hell and that they torment men there also.  While on earth, there is a time limit because this judgment is part of God’s entire judgment plan. These creatures won’t be able to kill these men, only torment them.  Their sting is like that of a scorpion, but worse, because these locust are from Hell! 

Men will want to die, even seek to die (suicide), but they won’t be able to die; just like in Hell.  They will call out for help, but nothing will help them during this horrific season of torment.  It will be just like it is in Hell, all torment and pain, no relief or death.  Deathless pain for five months, this will be the form of this judgment.  Many scholars believe that the purpose of this particular judgment is to reveal to the tribulation survivors that this is only a minor taste of what await them in Hell if they refuse to repent of their wickedness and turn to the Lord.  The Lord (Jesus) is pleading with humanity to repent and turn to Him for their salvation. 

John goes on to describe these ‘locust’ creatures, “The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. They had hair like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running into battle. 10 They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. Their power was to hurt men five months. 11 And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon (destruction), but in Greek he has the name Apollyon (destroyer). 12 One woe is past. Behold, still two more woes are coming after these things.”                                                                                                       – Revelation 9:7-12

  • Here we can see the impact that these creatures are having on their unsaved victims.  They are tormentors, this is their purpose, both in Hell and at this time on the earth, but for just five months

This passage further illustrates who their ‘king’ was, the angel of the bottomless pit. The Hebrew name is ‘Abaddon’ which means ‘destruction,’ but the Greek name is ‘Apollyon’ which means ‘destroyer.’  We see the agenda of these locust is connected to the agenda of the devil and of Hell; total destruction.

What does this have to do with CERN?

The CERN/Revelation 9 Theory – One day in the not too distant future (during the seven-year tribulation, more  specifically, during the 5th trumpet judgment, it is believed by some (theory) that an explosion will occur in, or near, the LHC that will open part of the earth’s crust and release a hoard of these demonic creatures who will torment men for five months as described in Revelation 9.

The reason for sharing this information about CERN in conjunction to the teaching of Revelation 9 has more to do with a ‘plausible’ reason for the Lord to allow such demonic creatures to escape from Hell for five months and enter into our world to torment certain unsaved people.  Again, this is God’s way of pleading with humanity during the tribulation by giving them a taste of Hell with all its eternal horrors and lack of death.  God is a God of love, but He is also a just God and cannot allow sin to go unpunished.  The penalty of sin is death and since we are created in His image and likeness, we will exist forever in one of two places, Heaven or Hell.

This judgment is as harsh as it is personal, but it’s not for any trib-saint who has accepted Jesus into their heart.  The reason for this has more to do with the principle of spiritual protection that is afforded us when we receive Jesus and because our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

Jesus said it this way, “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”                      – Luke 10:19,20

  • Any saved person has this ‘spiritual protection’ over their lives and demons.  While it’s true that demons can harass, bother, and even buffet Christians, it’s equally true that they can’t ‘hurt’ you physically or kill you.

If you study CERN more, you will discover that they have a dark agenda when it comes to their science as many people who work there have reported unusual supernatural events occurring as well as demonic activity.  Their logo is a makeup of the number 666.  There are many YouTube videos about CERN out there where individuals have studied this phenomenal place and have reported all kinds of weird and demonic activity occurring on the CERN campus and within the LHC itself.  It is said that the largest machine every build by man is the LHC. It’s a remarkable piece of engineering and is as colorful as it is dangerous.  The late scientist Steve Hawking warned the scientific  community (and anyone else who would listen) about the Higgs boson particle (aka ‘God particle,’ because of monotheism) discovered by CERN scientists in 2012.  This particle is thought to give matter its mass.  Hawking stated that this particle could destroy the universe and we wouldn’t see it coming’ (Starmus: ‘5 Years of Man in Space’ 10/8/14)  While this might sound like a bunch of scientific gibberish, what is clear is that something is happening at CERN that could very well be tied to this Revelation 9 / 5th trumpet judgment. I can’t say for sure, only that it’s yet another sign of the Lord’s soon return for His Church.  I am glad that I will not be here when all of these judgements from Jesus Himself will be unleashed on the earth during the seven-year tribulation; and you don’t have to either – receive Jesus today!
