What does a locust symbolize in the Bible?
Locusts usually appear in the Bible when God is issuing a judgment or disciplining His people. They are also mentioned as food, where John the Baptist has survived on locust and wild honey in the wilderness.
However, it was most mentioned in the Bible during God's wrath to show His power to people who defy him.
Locusts are grasshopper-like insects that are unsociable. However, locusts can swarm in certain conditions, which can be a destructive agent for crops in the field.
In the Bible, locust swarms were mentioned in the Old Testament prominently in the history of the Jewish people. Moreover, they also appear as symbolic figures in Revelation.
Locusts starred famously in the Egyptian Plague when Moses took on Pharaoh in Egypt. One of the ten plagues Moses called down upon the Egyptians was locusts.
It's because the Israelites had been tyrannized for many years under barbarous Pharaohs. During the time of Moses, God planned to free them from slavery; however, Pharaoh's heart was pitiless.
God used ten plagues, namely blood, frogs, lice, flies, livestock pestilence, boils, hail, locusts, darkness, and the killing of firstborn children, to soften Pharaoh's heart free the Israelites. God turned their water to blood and filled the land with frogs and biting lice.
The people survived, and Pharaoh remained stiff, so God sent another plague, such as pestilence to kill their livestock, boils that infect their bodies, and hen hail to destroy their food supply.
The Pharaoh remained his hardness, so God sent locusts to eat whatever the hail hadn't destroyed. They serve as a cleanup crew to get rid of anything so that there will be no food left for Pharaoh's people.
After God sent locusts, it was followed by two more plagues – three days of darkness in the land and, lastly, the death of every first child.
In Revelation, the locusts are no ordinary. They will not swarm against the vegetation, like grass or trees, instead swarm against humans.
These locusts will swarm to torment people with pain comparable to a scorpion bite for five months. The Bible says that people will suffer agony and long for death but can't find a way.
The locusts from the Revelation have unique characteristics, where they upgraded from swarming crops to people.
As you notice, locusts in the Bible are worth paying attention to because they can spread like wildfire, causing devastation and sorrow to people. God only used this way so that people who defy him will repent.
Just like us humans, as parents, we heighten the discipline for a stubborn child, then as they grow, we reduce the restriction, so they no longer repeat undesirable behavior.
The devouring swarm of locusts symbolizes a destructive scourge. In Exodus and Revelation, they are seen as hell-born torments.
You shouldn't ignore this aspect since exorcisms were used against locusts.
In the book of Exodus, God decided to send an invading swarm of locusts, and their appearance is like a natural phenomenon. Still, in the book of Revelation, the symbol has a different meaning.
The swarm of locusts is more like a spiritual and moral torment.
