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.
3 And the locusts [that went into exile because the called out to other gods] came out of the smoke [of the Lake of Fire, and appeared] on the surface of the earth; and they were given the same authority [over fallen Adam], as [Satan, Leviathan & Cain, the spiritual] vermin, have,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
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.
7 And the nature (shape) of the locusts was like unto Judah prepared for battle; and they were crowned with the [spiritual] gold of [Keter], their head, and their personalities were like the personality of the female Adam (men).
37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
3 Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished the goats: for the LORD of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah, and hath made them as his goodly horse in the battle.
11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
6 And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;
6 And John was invested with the spirit of a camel, and had a leather belt around his hips, and he ate of the wisdom of the [spiritual] locusts of the field (wild) [of creation]
25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
John entered into PaRDeS and returned to this world intact. (See, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pardes_(Jewish_exegesis) for a definition of PaRDeS; See http://www.koshertorah.com/PDF/PardesLessons.pdf for the parable of 4 rabbis who entered into the Apple Orchard (PaRDeS), and only one returned to this world intact.)
John passed through the eye of the needle into his spiritual center (camel), but did not lose his ground in this world (leather belt, ie, leather=animal nature).
John fellowshipped with the Hebrew Ascended Masters (locusts), who abode in the spiritual aspect of the field of creation, and ate of their secret wisdom.
17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
My question is,
1. Since the sons of God are the locusts, why does Proverbs 30:27 say they have no KING?
2. Does this mean they have no carnal king?
27 The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;
The Hebrew word translated “no,” is “Ayin,” Strong’s # 369.
369. /y]a^ °ayin: A particle or semiverb of negation or nonexistence meaning no, none, nothing. It is used hundreds of times with various negative nuances. It can simply negate something (Ex 17:7; Ps 135:17) or assert that something is as nothing in comparison (Isa 40:17). Used with the preposition l®, it indicates nonpossession (Gen 11:30; Prov 13:7; Isa 27:4; Hos 10:3). It refers to the lack of a successor (Dan 9:26).
(from The Complete Word Study Dictionary: Old Testament Copyright © 2003 by AMG Publishers. All rights reserved.)
“Ayin” is translated, “nothingness,” because there is nothing that can be compared to it.
The Kabbalists liken “Ayin” to the Keter, because there is nothing that can compare to it in our world.
The following sentence is copied from the notes that I took when reading and studying “Etz Chayyim,” the Tree of Life:
“Keter has no analogy in the realm of our experience, so it is sometimes referred to as “nothingness” (‘ayin), and thought as remaining hidden within the Supreme Emanator (Keter).”
“Keter,” or, “nothingness,” is associated with the word “crown” (king), and with the Name of God, “I AM” (Eyeh), the self-existent one.
In view of the above, we can translate Proverbs 30:27, as follows:
King; I AM (have no=nothingness=I AM); grasshoppers (locusts); to go forth into exile; “by” not in the Hebrew; to divide, cut off, come to an end, sing (bands); all
12 I AM, [is] king of all the grasshoppers that went forth into exile [and] were cut off [from Jehovah, because] they sang [songs, or, called out to other gods].

7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.
