Comparing 5 th and 6th Trumpets

Rev. 9: 1- 12   5th Trumpet
Rev. 9:13-21         6th Trumpet    
1  Star fell from heaven given keys to the bottomless pit (Satan)
13 Voice from the 4 horns of the golden altar in heaven before God (Christ )
2 Released smoke from the pit as of a great furnace;  darkened the sun and air 
14  Released the four angels bound the at the great river Euphrates
3 Locusts from the smoke were given power of scorpions
4 Do not harm the earth, grass, plants, trees
15  Four Angels prepared for the hour, the day, the month, the year
5  Five months of torment with scorpion strings, but not kill (only those who did not have God’s seal)
People with seek death long to die.
16  200 million mounted troops
 to kill 1/3 mankind
7 Locusts like horses prepared for battle: on their heads like crowns of gold; faces were like human faces,
8hair like women's hair, teeth like lions' teeth;9 breastplates of iron
17 Horses and rider; breastplates the color of fire and sapphire and of sulfur, and the heads of the horses were like lions' heads,
 9 Noise of their wings like the noise of many chariots and horses rushing to war
18 By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed, by the fire and smoke and sulfur coming out of their mouths.
10  Their power to hurt people for five months is in their tails.
Tails and stings like scorpions
19  Power of the horses is in mouths and in tails-like serpents with heads, and by means of them they wound.
11  Those accepting Satan are subjects of their destructive king Abaddon (Apollyon in Greek)
20, 21 Those refusing Christ's forgiveness. Worship idols and keep their evil ways. Did not repent
