The Abyss

When it is first introduced, “ smoke ” and locust-like creatures ascend from the “ Abyss ” to torment the “ inhabitants of the earth .” In Revelation , it is the deep pit from which satanic agencies ascend to wreak havoc and wage war against the “ saints .” It is also the “prison” where demonic forces are imprisoned until their appointed time to execute their malevolent plans.


In the letter to the “ messenger ” in Thyatira, a structural change occurs. In the first three letters, the call to heed the Spirit’s voice preceded the promises to overcomers. From this point forward, it follows the promises and concludes each letter. This serves to emphasize the need to “ hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches ” through the seven letters sent by the risen Son of Man.
