Overcoming Abaddon (Apollyon) … by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

“In the New Testament Book of Revelation, an angel called Abaddon is described as the king of an army of locusts; his name is first transcribed in Greek (Revelation 9:11—”whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon” (Ἀβαδδὼν)), and then translated (“which in Greek means the Destroyer” (Ἀπολλύων, Apollyon)).” (1)

I did hesitate to talk about this before, but it’s possible the locusts described in Revelation might be interpreted to be the HIV virus. Behind it is a force of darkness sometimes named Abaddon. When we do what we can to help and bless those who have HIV or are in danger of contracting it, when we take the best possible care of our own selves if we have contracted it, we are, as it were, amongst the legions of good human beings who are fighting Abaddon.

So, let us rise to this challenge of standing as one against this ‘destroyer’ … through God’s grace, through following our own hearts, and through kindness and goodwill toward all humankind, we will survive and thrive on New Earth.
