Ever noticed that John the Baptist was part of “the restoring” of “the years the locust has eaten”?
Psa 78:46 HE GAVE ALSO their increase unto the caterpiller, and THEIR LABOUR UNTO THE LOSCUST.
Joel 2:25 And I WILL RESTORE TO YOU THE YEARS THAT THE LOCUST HATH EATEN, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
Mat 17:11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, ELIAS TRULY SHALL FIRST COME, AND RESTORE ALL THINGS.
Mat 17:13 Then the disciples understood that HE SPAKE UNTO THEM OF JOHN THE BAPTIST.
Mat 3:4 And the same JOHN had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and HIS MEAT WAS LOCUST AND WILD HONEY.
That’s pretty cool!!
Check out the description of the locust in Rev 9:
3 And there came OUT OF THE SMOKE LOCUST upon the earth: and UNTO THEM WAS GIVEN POWER, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
4 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.
5 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.
6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
7 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.
8 And they had hair as THE HAIR OF WOMEN, and their teeth were as THE TEETH OF LIONS.
9 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.
10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and THEIR POWER WAS TO HURT MEN FIVE MONTHS.
John’s mother, Elizabeth, hid herself FIVE MONTHS …
Luke 1:24-25 And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and HID HERSELF FIVE MONTHS, saying, THIS HATH THE LORD DEALT WITH ME in the days wherein he looked on me, TO TAKE AWAY MY REPROACH AMONG MEN.
In the sixth month an angel of the Lord appeared unto Mary…
