Revelation 6:13





13 And [kai] the stars [aster] of heaven [ouranos] fell [pipto] unto [eis] the earth, [ge] even as [hos] a fig tree [suke] casteth [ballo] her [autos] untimely figs, [olunthos] when she is shaken [seio] of [hupo] a mighty [megas] wind. [anemos]  KJV-Interlinear



13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind.    NASB



The stars, is a word for the literal stars in the heavens, but John is using symbolism here to depict something else.


Stars are also used as expressions for love, for hopes and dreams, for wishes, for leaders and rulers.  And just as when one is wishing on a star, and those wishes come easily and disappear just as easily, so too, the would be leaders of this world, who have come into their power as wishful thinking, will leave their positions just as easily.


The figs falling out of season are those which did not fall during a timely manner. That is, they did not fall during harvest time in the autumn, but did not ripen and so remained on the tree into the winter. The fruit will never ripen, will never orient to the seasons, and simply refuses to go away, sucking the good juices of the tree, so as to weaken the tree. So a powerful storm comes along to cast them off of the tree and forever to the ground where they will never be useful for anything.  But the tree is saved to produce more and better fruit.


So it is in the sixth seal. Man is arrogant and decadent to the max.  All the problems in the Tribulation will lead to revolution, riots, and the overthrow of governments.  Governments will fall.  The leaders will fall, and so these are the stars that will fall from the heights of their own appointed positions.  


Revolt after revolt will occur. Corruption and rage will abound throughout the weaker nations of the world, and instability will abound. The masses of the common folk will fall in the midst of all this violence just like the strong winds shake up the fig tree and cleanse its bad fruit.  Satan and his band, also, will be cast out of heaven and down to this earth.


If you have noticed, almost every spring and fall has its violent storms. These storms cleanse the trees of their leaves and dead branches and such, and make way for new growth. So it will be with planet earth. The dead stuff, those unbelievers who will never believe, and those believers who are hard core negative toward God, all these will be cleansed by these judgments.


And just as is takes just a little wind, and only wind to cleanse the dead and worthless fruit off of the trees, so too, the removal of worthless leadership will fall just as easily. They have no real power, no real strength, no real resources, no insight with regard to their role in life.


All rulers, all celebrities, all wealthy, all people of influence and position in this world, have a responsibility to preserve, to promote and to protect truth.  Truth is the content of the Word of God, which includes all God given rights and privileges to humanity.


Man (leadership, etc.) distorts truth and attempts to substitute human social ideas, in order to convince and persuade the masses to follow them, while at the same time cornering all worldly advantages for themselves.


Thus they make promises in order to keep the poor, poor, and their own power and advantages, intact.  This approach in life never works.  And as it is documented here, all leadership on all levels, in all aspects of life, will fail and fall.


The French peasantry revolted during their revolution, and the heads of the royals and aristocrats, politicians and even prostitutes, came off, quite literally.  The guillotine did not rest for weeks as tens of thousands were systematically executed.


And so the picture of the Tribulation comes together.A dismal time, when tyranny and chaos reign, as starvation and atrocities take their toll on human life.


And we are not done building this description, even yet.
