The four angels were released (Rev 9:15)

“The four angels

Were released,

Who had been ready

For the hour,

The day,

The month,

And the year,

To kill

A third

Of all humans.”

καὶ ἐλύθησαν οἱ τέσσαρες ἄγγελοι οἱ ἡτοιμασμένοι εἰς τὴν ὥραν καὶ ἡμέραν καὶ μῆνα καὶ ἐνιαυτόν, ἵνα ἀποκτείνωσιν τὸ τρίτον τῶν ἀνθρώπων.

John said, “The four angels (οἱ τέσσαρες ἄγγελοι) were released (καὶ ἐλύθησαν), who had been ready (οἱ ἡτοιμασμένοι) for the hour (εἰς τὴν ὥραν), the day (καὶ ἡμέραν), the month (καὶ μῆνα), and the year (καὶ ἐνιαυτόν), to kill (ἵνα ἀποκτείνωσιν) a third (τὸ τρίτον) of all humans (τῶν ἀνθρώπων).”  John indicated that the sixth angel with a trumpet released the four angels who had been bound up at the Euphrates River.  These four vengeful angels were ready for this hour, this day, this month, and this year.  This was not haphazard, but part of some great plan.  They were going to kill one out of every three humans, much like the one third that the early angels with trumpets had done.  There was never total destruction, just one third at a time.  Do you believe that there is a plan for the end of the world?
