The Devil has three purpose Kill, steal, and destroy. Abaddon is described here as an angel but the name Abaddon in Hebrew simply means Destroyer Many scholars say that this Abaddon is Satan but that's not so true. We see in the book of;
Revelation 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 9:3 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.
Who is the keeper of the bottomless pit?
Abaddon is an archangel who Jehovah left in charge of the bottomless pit.
Why is someone keeping the bottomless pit?
The bottomless pit has strange and dangerous creatures that if released will totally destroy mankind. We see this in the book of;
Revelation 9:1 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. 9:2 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.
Thirdly Abaddon will be the leader of the Locust which will be sent to hunt, and torment mankind. This can be seen in the book of;
Revelation 9:11 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.
Abaddon is in charge of everything that concerns the bottomless pit. He is the ruler of all the creatures there. Now there are two things you should know the demon Beelzebub or Satan is in charge of Sheol. Sheol is different from the bottomless pit. Sheol before the death of Christ was a place for the dead where they had the bosom of Abraham and the other side but after the death and resurrection, after Christ went and preached to the people in the grave(Sheol), another name for Sheol is HELL FIRE. This is where the devil is in charge of. The bottomless pit and Hell fire are in two different places. Researchers speculate that HELL FIRE is situated in the Earth's core whereas the bottomless pit no one knows it's location but we are certain it's on Earth. The Bible mentioned the Angel descending as a STAR into the earth, given the Key to the bottomless pit.
Revelation 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
Hope you now know who Abaddon is?
