Heavenly Angels Loosened to Slay a Third Part

The “third part of men” has a significance that has been entirely missed by modernity.

Originally the scribes divided their localised world into thirds, three kinds of people – the belligerent-warrior (Japeth), the non-productive, not referring to homosexuality (Ham) and the renowned, not referring to Israel but Israelites of every nation (Shem). These were purely symbols for recognition of the kinds of individuals of any society at any time. The world was meant to be creative, equivalent to the cosmology. Mankind was specie freely ascended with likeable potential to enable the terrestrial at one with the cosmology. Mankind was to make governance reflective in likeness of the great wonder. Ten commandments “to make” were inscribed in Exodus to enable survival in a world of darkness. Black destructiveness possessed the ethos. The inkhorn was always obliterated, the book closed, rulership remained supreme with literalization of the indented illiterate guaranteeing dependency and acquiescence. Mythos was replaced by a strict logos with ten selective laws ingrained as the commandments to be adhered to.

When John of Patmos incorporated the slaying of “third part of men” into the sixth trumpet message he was superimposing Jerusalem of old for her apostasy, as a pro forma exemplification (Ezek. 5:1-2) into an apocalyptic age, where the reformation would finally be reformed. Three or third became a great entrenched symbol – persecution (Japeth – black horse), mourning (Ham – pale, bay and green horse) and resurrection (Shem – white and red horse waiting for his bride).

John foresaw the same pattern in all eon’s right through to the Apocalypse. Three is mentioned so many times in the texts that examples are so numerous and beyond and any brief encounter – it is always ongoing and entwined as a metaphoric thread in all texts so I will leave the reader to ponder a personal interpretation:

– “brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind … the third day” – Gen 1:12
– “It came to pass on the third day – Exd. 19:11
– “the remainder … on the third day shall be” – Lev. 7:17
“thou shalt offer a third … of an hin” – Num. 15:17
– “the children … in their third generation” – Duet. 23:8
– “and came unto their cities on the third …” – Josh. 9:17
– “Israel went up … on the third, an put” – Jud. 20:30
– “Saul sent messengers again for the third time” – 1 Sam 10:21
– “it came to pass on the third day, that” – 2 Sam 1:2
– “it came to pass in the third year” – 1 Kings 22:2
– “a third part … a third part at the gat” – 2 Kings 20:5
– “The third captain of the host for the third” – 1 Chron. 27:5
– “the third day … saying, Come … the third” – 2 Chron. 10:12
– “with the third part of a shekel for the” – Neh. 10:32
– “it came to pass on the third day, that Esther” – Esth. 5:3
– “the name of the third” – Job 42:14
– “in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plough” – Isa. 37:30
– “into the third entry that (is) in the house” – Jer. 38:14
– “a third part … a third part … a third part” – Eze. 5:2, 12
– “in the third day he will raise us up” – Hos. 6:2
– “in the third chariot white horses” – Zech. 6:3
– “another third kingdom of brass” Dan. 2:39

And before the writing of Revelation:

– “he rose up again on the third day” – 1 Cor. 15:4
– “such as one caught up to the third heaven” – 2 Cor. 12:2

And in Revelation:
– “the third beast had the face of a man” – Rev. 4:7
– “the third part of the trees was burnt up” – Rev. 8:7
– “and the third part of the sea” – Rev. 8:8
– “the third part of the creatures” – Rev. 8:9
– “and the third part of the ships” – Rev. 8:9
– “and the third angel sounded” – Rev. 8:10
– “and on the third part of the rivers” – Rev. 8:10
– “the third part of the waters became wormwood” – Rev. 8:11
– “the third part of the sun was smitten” – Rev. 8:12
– “the third part of the moon, and the third” – Rev. 8:12
– “A third part of them was darkened” – Rev. 8:12
– “day shone not for a third part of it” – Rev. 8:12
– “were loosened to slay a third part of men” – Rev. 9:15
– “his tail drew a third part of the stars” – Rev. 12:4

Even today the world is dived into three types of personalities – about a third for each type. The Ancient psychology grounded philosophy into parts and each part makes up the whole. John looked positively that eventually there would come, a coming out, of the darkness that has enshrouded the leavening seed.
