Spiritual Meaning of REVELATION 9:15
AR 445. Verse 15. And the four angels were loosed, signifies that when the external bonds were taken away, the interiors of their minds appeared. This follows from what is said above.
AR 446. Prepared for an hour and a day and a month and a year, to kill a third part of men, signifies that they were in the perpetual effort to take away from the men of the church spiritual light and life. By "prepared" is signified that they were in the effort; by "an hour, a day, a month, and a year," is signified continually and perpetually, the same as by "all time;" by "to kill" is signified to take away spiritual light and life from the men of the church (n. 325); and the third part signifies all (n. 400).
