I believe Jesus Christ was letting us know in Luke Chapter 10 , about the first Woe that will come upon mankind, the Woe of the Fifth Trumpet. Also Jesus Christ was letting us know about the Woe that will follow, the Woe of the Sixth Trump.
Scorpions, and Serpents.
Luke 10:17-18 KJVS
“And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.  And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”
Satan is cast out of Heaven at a specific time, and that specific time is the Woe of the Fifth Trumpet. The Woe of the Fifth Trumpet is when the Five Month Hour of Temptation will begin.
As Christ beheld in Luke Chapter 10, so did John when Jesus Christ was showing him this Revelation when John was in the isle Patmos , and taken in the spirit to the Lords Day ( Revelation Chapter 1 verses 9 and 10.)
Revelation 8:13 KJVS
“And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!”
John beheld what was given to him by our Lord Jesus Christ in the book of Revelation; our Lord and Savior also spoke of this event earlier to the Seventy that returned in Luke Chapter 10.
Another witness in His Holy Word.
Revelation 9:1-2 KJVS
“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.  And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.”
Woe to the inhibiters of the earth after that War in Heaven, when that Lightning falls to this earth. The Woe of the Fifth Trump.
Revelation 12:7-12 KJVS
“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,  And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.  Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”
A short time.. Five Months.
Look what Jesus says next in Luke Chapter 10.
Luke 10:19 KJVS
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
To Tread on Scorpions.
Revelation 9:3-11 KJVS
“And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.  And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.  And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.  And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.  And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.  And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.  And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.  And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.  And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. “
Satan’s Fallen Angel Locusts during the Five Month Long Hour of Temptation, will have power as Scorpions to HURT deceptively. Their tails are described like unto Scorpions, however the description of those tails will change.
This deception through these Fallen Angels from their king will torment, and dissolve any sense of remaining Truth out of the minds of Men and Women who do not have Seal of the Living God.
After this first Woe passes, the description of the tails change.
To Tread on Serpents.
Revelation 9:12-19 KJVS
“One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.  And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,  Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.  And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.  And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.  And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.  By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.  For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.”
Like unto Serpents.
They will Hurt, unless if you are given power over Satan’s deception during that Five Month Long Hour of Temptation, by having the Seal of the Living God in your forehead.
Satan’s power of deception from him through his Angels ( Locust,) will hurt many during the Five Months. That power of his deception through his Fallen Angles stinging tails during the Woe of the Fifth Trump will prompt many to receive a venomous strike upon their spiritual lives at the Woe of the Sixth Trump, bringing them to spiritual destruction.
From Scorpions to Serpents, that venomous deception at the Woe of the Sixth Trump will remove many names out of the Book of Life. That venomous vile will pour out of his, and his Fallen Angels mouths during the Woe of the Sixth Trump (latter half of the Five Month Long Hour of Temptation) giving him power over many through great blasphemy .
Revelation 13:6-8 KJVS
“And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.  And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
Most of the world will be taken in Satan’s deception at the Woe of the Sixth Trump, thus leaving their names out of the Book of Life, howbeit there will be A Few that are given Power by having the Seal of the Living God in their foreheads over that blasphemous deception of Satan’s Mark.
Those Few remain, and will never be taken out of that Book. The Few who are God’s servants are Antipas, and they will be used to bring many back into that Book of Life before This Earth Age passes (Different study all together 🙂
Luke 10:20 KJVS
“Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”
Power isn’t from us , but it is from Thee One who gives it, Jesus Christ .
From the Woe of the Fifth Trumpet, to the Woe of the Sixth Trumpet, deception from the Dragon who is the Serpent, will Gnaw, Swarm , Devour, and ultimately Consume those who are not sealed with Gods Truth into a spiritual grave, and It will hurt.
Satan will be the Lighting that falls , however the our Lord Jesus Christ will be the Thunder that will roar .
1 Samuel 2:10 KJVS
“The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the Lord shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.”
Jesus Christ showed John, He told the Seventy , and He has foretold us.
Mark 13:23 KJVS
“But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.”
John Chapter 1 verses 1 through 14.
