Fifth Trumpet

An eagle flying in midair announces the last three TRUMPET judgments with the forboding words, "WOE! WOE! WOE!" When the fifth angel sounds his TRUMPET, the abyss is opened. Locusts come forth with a powerful sting. For five months they torment all unbelievers who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. Men seek death but cannot find it because the purpose of the judgment is to torment them without killing them.

The first woe is past -- two other woes are yet to come.
