The Book of Revelation Chronology
(The Revealed Text)
I. Jesus and the Church
a. Revelation 1:1-6, 9 John’s Greeting
Revelation 1:1 This is the Revelation of Jesus Christ that God revealed to Jesus so that he could tell His servants about what must soon happen. Jesus then sent His angel with this same message to His servant John.
Revelation 1:2 John testified about what he saw concerning the Word of God, and the Testimony of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 1:3 God will bless those who read and preserve this prophecy to others. And God will bless all who hear it and obey it because the time for this to happen is almost here.
Revelation 1:4 This is from John to the seven churches in Asia. Grace to you and peace from God, who was, who is, and is coming soon. And from the seven spirits who are before the throne of God.
Revelation 1:5 And from the faithful witness, Jesus Christ, who is the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of all the earthly kings. Jesus Christ loves us and washed us from our sins with His own life’s blood.
Revelation 1:6 He has made us kings and priests for God, His Father and to him is glory and power to rule for ever and ever! Amen.
Revelation 1:9 I am John, a follower together with all of you. We suffer because Jesus is our King, but He gives us the strength to endure. I was exiled to Patmos Island, because I had preached God's message and had told about Jesus.
b. Revelation 4:1-5 God’s Throne & the 7 Spirits
Revelation 4:1 I, John, saw a door that opened into heaven. A voice sounding like a trumpet said, "Come up here and I will show you what must happen next."
Revelation 4:2 I was immediately in the Spirit and I saw there in heaven a center throne with God sitting upon it.
Revelation 4:3 God was sitting upon the center Throne that sparkled like a clear diamond and fiery bright ruby. A rainbow shone around the center throne that looked like a green emerald.
Revelation 4:4 Twenty-four other thrones were in a circle around the center throne. On each of these thrones was an elder dressed in a white robe and wearing a golden crown.
Revelation 4:5 Lightning flashed and thunderous voices roared out from the center throne. Seven torches, which are the seven spirits of God, were burning in front of the center throne.
c. Revelation 4:6-11 The 24 Elders and 4 Living Creatures
Revelation 4:6 A crystal clear sea of glass was in front of the center Throne and within and around the center throne were four living creatures covered front and back with eyes.
Revelation 4:7 The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like a bull, the third had the face of a human, and the fourth was like a flying eagle.
Revelation 4:8 Each of the four living creatures had six wings, and their bodies were covered with eyes. Day and night they never stopped saying, "Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is returning soon!"
Revelation 4:9 The four living creatures constantly praised the God who lives forever upon the center throne, with glory, honor, and thankfulness.
Revelation 4:10 Then the twenty-four elders knelt down and worshipped the God who lives forever upon the center throne and they laid their golden crowns before the center throne and said,
Revelation 4:11 "Our Lord and God, you are worthy to receive glory, honor, and power. You created all things, and by your will they exist and were created."
d. Revelation 10:1-2 The Angel and The Little Scroll
Revelation 10:1 Then I saw a powerful angel coming down from heaven. He was covered with a cloud and a rainbow over his head. His face shone like the sun, and his legs gleamed like columns of fire,
Revelation 10:2 He stood with his right foot upon the sea and his left foot upon the land and he unrolled the little scroll in his hand.
e. Revelation 5:1-4 The Lamb & The Seven Sealed Scroll
Revelation 5:1 God was sitting upon the center throne and I saw in His right hand a scroll that had writing on the inside and outside. It was secured with seven seals.
Revelation 5:2 A strong angel proclaimed with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the scroll and unlock its seals?"
Revelation 5:3 No one in heaven, the earth, nor under the earth was worthy to open the scroll, or even look inside it.
Revelation 5:4 I cried because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or even look at it.
f. Revelation 5:5-14 The Lamb is Worthy
Revelation 5:5 Then one of the elders said to me, "Stop crying and look! The one who is called both the 'Lion from the Tribe of Judah' and 'The root of King David' has conquered and will open the scroll and it’s seven seals!"
Revelation 5:6 Then I looked and saw a Lamb standing in the center of the throne that was surrounded by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb looked as if He had once been killed. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God, sent out to all the earth.
Revelation 5:7 The Lamb went over and took the scroll from the right hand of the One who sat upon the throne.
Revelation 5:8 The four living creatures and twenty-four elders knelt down before the Lamb. Each of them had a harp and a golden bowl full of incense, which are the prayers of God's people.
Revelation 5:9 They sang a new song, "You are worthy to receive the scroll and open its seals, because you were killed. And with your own blood you bought for God people from every tribe, language, nation, and race.
Revelation 5:10 You have made us kings and priests for God, and we will rule upon the earth."
Revelation 5:11 I looked and heard the voices of angels around the Center Throne, the Living Creatures, and the Elders. There were millions and millions of them,
Revelation 5:12 and they were saying in a loud voice, "The Lamb who was killed is worthy to receive power, riches, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and blessings."
Revelation 5:13 Then I heard all the beings in heaven, upon the earth, under the earth, and in the sea, offering praise together, "Praise, honor, glory, and strength for ever and ever to the one who sits upon the throne and to the Lamb!"
Revelation 5:14 The Four Living Creatures said "Amen," while the Elders knelt down and worshiped Him who lives forever and ever.
g. Revelation 1:8, 11a, 21:6, 22:13 The Alpha and The Omega
Revelation 1:8 The Lord God says, "I am Alpha and Omega, the one who is and was and is coming. I am God All-Powerful!"
Revelation 1:11a “I Am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Last.
Revelation 22:13 “I am Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
Revelation 21:6b I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will freely give water from the Life-Giving Fountain to everyone who is thirsty.
II. The Seven Churches
a. Revelation 1:10-20 Jesus & The 7 Golden Lamp Stands
Revelation 1:10 The Spirit took control of me on the Lord’s day, and behind me I heard a loud voice sounding like a trumpet.
Revelation 1:11b saying, “write in a book what you see and send it to the seven churches in Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea."
Revelation 1:12 I turned to see who was speaking to me and saw seven golden lamp stands.
Revelation 1:13 There, amidst the lamp stands, was the Son of Man, wearing a robe that reached down to His feet and a gold cloth wrapped around His chest.
Revelation 1:14 His head and hair were white as wool and snow, and His eyes blazed like flames of fire.
Revelation 1:15 His feet were glowing like heated bronze in a furnace, and His voice sounded like the roar of a waterfall.
Revelation 1:16 He held seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp double-edged sword was coming from His mouth. His face was shining as bright as the sunlight.
Revelation 1:17 I fainted when I saw Him but He placed His right hand upon me and said: “Don't be afraid! I Am the First, the Last,
Revelation 1:18 and the Living One. I died, but now I am alive for evermore, and I have the keys to death and to the world of the dead.
Revelation 1:19 Write what you have seen and what is and what will soon happen after these things.
Revelation 1:20 I will explain the mystery of the seven stars that you saw at my right side and the seven golden lamp stands. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the lamp stands are the seven churches.
b. Revelation 2:1-7 The Church of Ephesus - Loveless
Revelation 2:1 Write this to the angel of the church in Ephesus: I Am the One who holds the seven stars in my right hand, and I walk among the seven golden lamp stands. Listen to what I say.
Revelation 2:2 I know what you do, including your hard work and how you have endured. I know you won't put up with anyone who is evil. When some people pretended to be apostles, you tested them and found out they were liars.
Revelation 2:3 You have endured and gone through hard times because of me, and have not given up.
Revelation 2:4 But I do have something against you! You have left your first love for me.
Revelation 2:5 Think about where you have fallen from, and turn back and do as you did at first, or I will quickly return and take away your lamp stand.
Revelation 2:6 But there is one thing you are doing right. You hate what the Nicolaitans are doing, and so do I.
Revelation 2:7 He who is paying attention must understand what the Spirit says to the churches. I will let everyone who endures eat from the life-giving tree in the center garden of God's Paradise.
c. Revelation 2:8-11 The Church of Smyrna - Persecution
Revelation 2:8 Write this to the angel of the church in Smyrna: I Am the First and the Last. I died, but now I Am alive! Listen to what I say.
Revelation 2:9 I know how much you suffer and how poor you are, but you are actually rich. I also know the cruel things being said about you by people who claim to be Jews but they are really members of Satan.
Revelation 2:10 Don't worry about what you will suffer. The devil will throw some of you into prison, and you will be tested and made to suffer for ten days. Be faithful unto death and I will reward you with the crown of glorious life.
Revelation 2:11 Whoever is paying attention must understand what the Spirit is saying to the churches. Whoever endures will not be hurt by the second death.
d. Revelation 2:12-17 Church of Pergamos - Compromise
Revelation 2:12 Write this to the angel of the church in Pergamos: I Am the One with the sharp double-edged sword! Listen to what I say.
Revelation 2:13 I know your labor and that you live where Satan has his throne. You have remained true to my name and you are my faithful witness Antipas was taken from you and put to death, but you still did not lose your faith in me.
Revelation 2:14 I do have a few things against you. Some of you follow the teaching of Balaam, causing the people of Israel to eat food offered to idols and remain immoral.
Revelation 2:15 And now some of you are following a teaching I hate of the Nicolaitans.
Revelation 2:16 Turn back from this or I will return quickly and fight against these people with the sword of my words.
Revelation 2:17 Whoever is paying attention must understand what the Spirit is saying to the churches. And to everyone who endures, I will give them the hidden manna and a white stone with a new name written upon it. No one will know that name except the ones given the stone.
e. Revelation 2:18-29 Church of Thyatira - Corruption
Revelation 2:18 Write this to the angel of the church in Thyatira: I Am the Son of God, my eyes are like flames of fire, and my feet are like bronze. Listen to what I say.
Revelation 2:19 I know everything about you, including your love, your faith, your service, and how you have endured. I know that you are doing more now than you ever done before.
Revelation 2:20 But I still have something against you because of that woman Jezebel. She calls herself a prophet, and you let her teach and mislead my servants to do immoral things and to eat food offered to idols.
Revelation 2:21 I gave her a chance to turn from her sins, but she did not want to stop doing immoral things.
Revelation 2:22 I am going to strike down Jezebel. Everyone who does immoral things with her will also be punished, if they don't stop.
Revelation 2:23 I will kill her followers and all the churches will understand that I search everyone's thoughts and feelings and I will give to each of you as you deserve.
Revelation 2:24 Some of you in Thyatira don't follow Jezebel's teaching. You don't know anything about what her followers call the "deep secrets of Satan." So I won't burden you with any other commands.
Revelation 2:25 Hold firmly to my teachings until I return.
Revelation 2:26 I will give power over the nations to everyone who endures and keeps on obeying me until the end.
Revelation 2:27 I will give to each of them the same power that my Father has given me. They will rule the nations with an iron rod and smash those nations to pieces like clay pots.
Revelation 2:28 I will also give them the Morning Star.
Revelation 2:29 Whoever is paying attention must understand what the Spirit says to the churches.
f. Revelation 3:1-6 The Church of Sardis - Lifeless
Revelation 3:1 Write this to the angel of the church in Sardis: I have the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. Listen to what I say. I know what you are doing. Everyone may think you are alive, but you are dead.
Revelation 3:2 Be alert and try to become stronger because you are losing your strength and you are not obeying God.
Revelation 3:3 Hold firmly to the teaching you have received and turn away from your sins. Be alert because I am returning unexpectedly like a thief.
Revelation 3:4 A few of you in Sardis have not dirtied your clothes with sin and you will walk with me in white clothes, because you are worthy.
Revelation 3:5 Everyone who endures will wear white clothes and their names will not be erased from the Book of Life, and I will tell my Father and His angels that they belong to me.
Revelation 3:6 Whoever is paying attention must understand what the Spirit is saying to the churches.
g. Revelation 3:7-13 The Church of Philadelphia - Faithful
Revelation 3:7 Write this to the angel of the church in Philadelphia: I am the one who is holy and true, and I hold the Keys of David. I open the door that no one can close and I close the door that no one can open. Listen to what I say.
Revelation 3:8 I know everything you have done. And I have placed before you an open door that no one can close. You were not very strong, but you obeyed my message and did not deny that you are my followers.
Revelation 3:9 Now you will see what I will do with those people who belong to Satan's group. They claim to be Jews, but they are liars. I will make them come and kneel down at your feet and they will realize it is you I love.
Revelation 3:10 You have obeyed my message and endured so I will protect you from the time of testing that everyone in the world must go through.
Revelation 3:11 I am returning soon. So hold firmly to what you have, and no one will be able to take away your crown.
Revelation 3:12 Everyone who endures will be given a stable place in the temple of my God, and remain there forever. I will write on each of them the name of my God and the name of His city. It is the new Jerusalem that my God will send down from heaven. I will also write on them my own new name.
Revelation 3:13 Whoever is paying attention must understand what the Spirit is saying to the churches.
h. Revelation 3:14-22 Church of Laodicea -Lukewarm
Revelation 3:14 Write this to the angel of the church in Laodicea: I Am the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness and the Beginning of God's Creation. Listen to my words.
Revelation 3:15 I know your works that you have done, and you are neither hot or cold and I wish you were either one or the other.
Revelation 3:16 But since you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spit you out of my mouth.
Revelation 3:17 You claim to be rich, successful and without need. But you don't realize how bad off you really are. You are miserable, poor, blind, and naked.
Revelation 3:18 Buy my gold because it has been refined in fire and will make you rich. Buy white clothes from me and wear them to cover up your shameful nakedness. Buy my medicine for your eyes, so that you will be able to see.
Revelation 3:19 I correct and punish those I love so be eager to turn away from your sins.
Revelation 3:20 Listen! I am standing and knocking at your door. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in and we will eat together.
Revelation 3:21 Everyone who endures will sit with me on my throne, because I Am victorious and sit with my Father on His throne.
Revelation 3:22 Whoever is paying attention must understand what the Spirit is saying to the churches.
III. The False One World Religion
a. Revelation 10:3-4 The 7 Thunders
Revelation 10:3 The angel shouted with a roar like a growling lion and Thunder roared seven times.
Revelation 10:4 After the thunder stopped, I was about to write what was said. But a voice from heaven shouted, "Keep this a secret! Do not write down these things."
b. Revelation 17:1-18 The Rise of Mystery Babylon
Revelation 17:1 One of the seven bowl angels came over to me and said, "Come here and I will show you how God will punish the shameless whore who sits upon many oceans.
Revelation 17:2 Every king upon the earth has slept with her, and her shameless ways have made everyone upon the earth drunk with her wine."
Revelation 17:3 And so with the help of the Spirit, the angel took me into the desert, and there I saw a woman sitting on a red beast. The beast was covered with names that were an insult to God, and it had seven heads and ten horns.
Revelation 17:4 The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet robes, and she wore jewelry made of gold, precious stones, and pearls. In her hand she held a gold cup filled with filthy and nasty things she had done.
Revelation 17:5 On her forehead a mysterious name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF WHORES AND EVERY FILTHY THING UPON THE EARTH.
Revelation 17:6 I could tell that the woman was drunk on the blood of God's people who had given their lives for Jesus. This surprising sight amazed me,
Revelation 17:7 and the angel said: Why are you so amazed? I will explain the mystery about this woman and about the beast she is sitting on, with its seven heads and ten horns.
Revelation 17:8 The beast you saw is the one that used to be and no longer is. It will come back from the deep pit, but only to be destroyed. Everyone on earth whose names were not written in the Book of Life before the time of creation will be amazed. They will see this beast that used to be and no longer is, but will be once more.
Revelation 17:9 Anyone with wisdom can figure this out. The seven heads that the woman is sitting upon are the seven hills and the heads are seven kings.
Revelation 17:10 Five of the kings are dead. One is ruling now, and the other one has not yet come. But when he does, he will only rule for a short time.
Revelation 17:11 You also saw a beast that used to be and no longer is. That beast is one of the seven kings who will return as the eighth king, but only to be destroyed.
Revelation 17:12 The ten horns that you saw are ten more kings, who have not yet come into power, and they will rule with the beast for only a short time.
Revelation 17:13 They are all in one agreement and will give their power and authority to the beast.
Revelation 17:14 These kings will go to war against the Lamb but He will defeat them, because He is Lord over all lords and King over all kings. His chosen followers are faithful.
Revelation 17:15 The oceans that you saw the prostitute sitting upon are crowds of people from all nations, races, and languages.
Revelation 17:16 The ten horns and the beast will start hating the shameless woman. They will strip off her clothes and leave her naked. Then they will eat her flesh and throw the rest of her body into a fire.
Revelation 17:17 God made all these kings agree together to give their power to the beast until what God’s word becomes apparent.
Revelation 17:18 The woman you saw is the great city that rules over all the kings upon the earth.
c. Revelation 12:1-5 Israel, Satan, and Jesus
Revelation 12:1 A woman appeared in the sky whose clothes were like the sun. The moon was under her feet, and a crown of twelve stars was upon her head.
Revelation 12:2 She was about to give birth and was crying because of labor pains.
Revelation 12:3 A huge red dragon appeared in the sky with seven heads and ten horns with a crown upon each of its seven heads.
Revelation 12:4 The dragon’s tail dragged a third of the stars from the sky and threw them down to the earth. Then the dragon turned toward the woman, because it wanted to eat her child as soon as it was born.
Revelation 12:5 The woman gave birth to a Son who will rule all nations with an iron rod. The Son was snatched away to God and placed upon His throne.
d. Revelation 22:6-11 Preserve This Book
Revelation 22:6 Then I was told: These words are true and can be trusted. The Lord God controls the spirits of His prophets, and He is the one who sent His angel to show His servants what must quickly happen.
Revelation 22:7 Remember that I am returning soon and God will bless everyone who preserves the message of this book.
Revelation 22:8 I John am the one who heard and saw these things and I knelt down and began to worship at the feet of the angel who had shown it to me.
Revelation 22:9 But the angel said, Do not worship me because I am just a servant like you and I am the same as a follower, or prophet, or anyone else who obeys what is written in this book. God is the only one to worship.
Revelation 22:10 Don't keep the prophecies in this book a secret because these things will quickly happen.
Revelation 22:11 Evil people will keep on being evil, and everyone who is dirty-minded will still be dirty-minded. Good people will continue living righteously and God's people will remain holy.
Revelation 22:18 Here is my warning for everyone who hears the prophecies in this book: If you add anything to them, God will make you suffer all the terrible troubles written in this book.
Revelation 22:19 If you take anything away from these prophecies, God will not let you have part in the life giving tree and in the holy city described in this book.
e. Revelation 1:7, 16:5, 22:12, 20 Jesus is Returning Quickly
Revelation 1:7 Look! Jesus is coming with the clouds. Everyone will see him, even the ones who stuck a sword through Him. All the people upon the earth will weep because of Him. Yes, it will happen! Amen.
Revelation 16:15 Remember that Jesus Christ says, "My return will surprise you like a thief! But God will bless you, if you are alert and ready for then you won't be naked and ashamed."
Revelation 22:12 Yes, I am returning soon and when I come, I will reward everyone for what they have done”.
Revelation 22:20 “Yes, I am returning soon!"
Lord Jesus, please come soon!

c. Revelation 13:4-10 Political, Commercial Dragon Worship
Revelation 13:4 The people worshiped the dragon who had given its authority to the beast. They also worshiped the beast and said, "No one is like this beast and no one can fight against him."
Revelation 13:5 The beast was allowed to brag and claim to be God, and allowed to rule for forty-two months.
Revelation 13:6 The beast cursed God, and the name of God. It even cursed the place where God lives, including everyone who lives in heaven with God.

Revelation 13:8 The beast was worshiped by everyone whose name wasn't written before the time of creation in the Book of the Lamb who was killed.
Revelation 13:9 If you are paying attention then understand this!
Revelation 13:10 If you are doomed to be captured, you will be captured. If you are doomed to be killed by a sword, you will be killed by a sword. This means that God's people must learn to endure and be faithful!
d. Revelation 10:5-7 The Angel upon The Sea and Land
Revelation 10:5 An angel standing upon the sea and the land held his right hand up toward heaven.
Revelation 10:6 He made a promise in the name of God who lives for ever and who created heaven, earth, the sea, and every living creature. The angel said, "You won't have to wait any longer.

Revelation 10:10 I took the little scroll from the hand of the angel and ate it. The taste was as sweet as honey, but my stomach turned sour.
Revelation 10:11 Then some voices said, "Keep on telling what will happen to the people of many nations, races, and languages, and kings."
V. Satan Inhabits the Anti-Christ (Mid Tribulation, End of First 3 1/2 Years)
a. Revelation 12:7-11 Satan and the Fallen Angels Demoted
Revelation 12:7 A war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels were fighting against the dragon and his angels.
Revelation 12:8 The dragon lost the battle and he and his angels were forced out of their places in heaven
Revelation 12:9 and were thrown down to the earth. Yes, that old snake and his angels were thrown out of heaven! That snake, who fools everyone upon the earth, is known as the devil and Satan.
Revelation 12:10 Then I heard a voice from heaven shout, "Our God has shown his saving power, and his kingdom has come! God's own Chosen One has shown his authority. Satan accused our people in the presence of God day and night and now he has been thrown out!

d. Revelation 13:13-18 Spiritual Dragon Worship 666
Revelation 13:13 The people watched him work mighty miracles, and he even made fire come down from the sky.
Revelation 13:14 This second beast fooled the people upon the earth by working miracles for the first one. Then he talked them into making an idol in the form of the first beast that did not die after being wounded by a sword.
Revelation 13:15 The second beast was allowed to put breath into the idol, so that it could speak. Everyone who refused to worship the idol of the first beast was put to death.
Revelation 13:16 All people were forced to put a mark on their right hand or forehead. Whether they were powerful or weak, rich or poor, free or slaves,
Revelation 13:17 they all had to have this mark, or else they could not buy or sell anything. This mark stood for the name of the beast and for the number of its name.
Revelation 13:18 You need wisdom to understand the number of the beast! But if you are smart enough, you can figure this out. Its number is six hundred sixty-six, and it stands for a person.
e. Revelation 12:6, 13-17 Israel Flees Persecution
Revelation 12:6 Then the woman ran into the desert to a place that God had prepared for her. There she would be taken care of for one thousand two hundred sixty days.
Revelation 12:13 When the dragon realized that it had been thrown down to the earth, it tried to make trouble for the woman who had given birth to the Son.
Revelation 12:14 But the woman was given two wings like those of a huge eagle, so that she could fly into the desert. There she would escape from the snake and be taken care of for two and a half years.
Revelation 12:15 The snake then spewed out water like a river to sweep the woman away.
Revelation 12:16 But the earth helped her by swallowing the water that poured from the dragon's mouth.
Revelation 12:17 This made the dragon terribly angry with the woman. So it started a war against the rest of her children. They are the people who obey God and are faithful to what Jesus did and taught.

Revelation 6:10 They shouted, "Master, you are holy and faithful! How long will it be before you judge and punish the people of the earth who killed us?"
Revelation 6:11 Then each of those who had been killed was given a white robe and told to rest for a little while. They had to wait until the complete number of the Lord's other servants and followers would be killed.

Revelation 7:1 After this I saw four angels with power to harm the earth and sea. Each one was standing upon one of the earth's four corners. The angels held back the four winds, so that no wind would blow upon the earth, sea, or any tree.
Revelation 7:2 Then I saw another angel rise up from where the sun rises in the east. He carried the seal of the living God and was ready to put the mark of the living God on people. He shouted to the four angels,
Revelation 7:3 "Don't harm the earth or the sea or any tree! Wait until I have marked the foreheads of the servants of our God."
k. Revelation 7:4-8 The 144,000 Sealed
Revelation 7:4 Then I heard how many people had been marked on the forehead. There were one hundred forty-four thousand, and they came from every tribe of Israel:
Revelation 7:5 12,000 from Judah, 12,000 from Reuben, 12,000 from Gad,
Revelation 7:6 12,000 from Asher, 12,000 from Naphtali, 12,000 from Manasseh,

Revelation 7:8 12,000 from Zebulun, 12,000 from Joseph, and 12,000 from Benjamin.
l. Revelation 6:12-17 The Sixth Seal – Universe Shaken
Revelation 6:12 Then the Lamb opened the sixth seal and there was a great earthquake. The sun turned as dark as sackcloth, and the moon became blood red.
Revelation 6:13 The stars in the sky fell to the earth like figs shaken loose by a windstorm.
Revelation 6:14 The sky rolled up like a scroll and all the mountains and islands moved from their places.
Revelation 6:15 The kings of the earth, the famous people, and military leaders hid in caves and behind rocks in the mountains. They hid there together with the rich, the powerful, slaves, and free people.
Revelation 6:16 Then they shouted to the mountains and the rocks, "Fall upon us and hide us from the One who sits upon the throne and from the anger of the Lamb.
Revelation 6:17 The terrible day has come! God and the Lamb are showing their anger and who can face it?"
VI. Beginning Judgment (2nd Half of 70th Week)
a. Revelation 8:1 Seal Seven and Silence
Revelation 8:1 The Lamb opened the seventh seal and there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
b. Revelation 8:2-6 The 7 Trumpets and Incense
Revelation 8:2 The seven angels who stood before God were each given a trumpet.
Revelation 8:3 Another angel came and stood at the altar. He was holding a golden container of incense and was given a lot of incense of the prayers of God's people to offer upon the golden altar in front of the center throne.
Revelation 8:4 The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of God's people, went up to God from the hand of the angel.
Revelation 8:5 Then the angel filled the incense container with fire from the altar and threw it upon the earth. Thunder roared, lightning flashed, and the earth shook.
Revelation 8:6 The seven angels prepared to blow their trumpets.
c. Revelation 8:7 The First Trumpet – Hail, Fire, Blood
Revelation 8:7 The first angel blew the first trumpet and hail and fire mixed with blood were thrown down upon the earth. A third of the earth, trees, and plants were burned.
d. Revelation 8:8-9 The Second Trumpet – Sea of Blood
Revelation 8:8 The second angel blew the second trumpet and a great fiery mountain was thrown into the sea and one third of the sea turned to blood,
Revelation 8:9 one third of the living creatures in the sea died, and one third of the ships were destroyed.
e. Revelation 8:10-11 The Third Trumpet – Angel of Fire
Revelation 8:10 The third angel blew the third trumpet and a great star fell from heaven. It was burning like a torch and fell upon one third of the rivers and springs of water.
Revelation 8:11 The name of the star was Wormwood and one third of the water turned bitter. Many people died because the water was so bitter.
f. Revelation 8:12 The Fourth Trumpet - Darkness
Revelation 8:12 The fourth angel blew the fourth trumpet and one third of the sun, moon, and stars were struck and lost one third of their light. One third of the day and night was darkness.

h. Revelation 9:1-12 The Fifth Trumpet – Stinging Locusts
Revelation 9:1 The fifth angel blew the fifth trumpet and a star fell from the sky to the earth. It was given the key to the tunnel that leads down to the deep pit.
Revelation 9:2 It opened the tunnel and smoke poured out like the smoke of a great furnace. The sun and the air turned dark because of the smoke.
Revelation 9:3 Locusts came out of the smoke and covered the earth. They were given the power to sting like scorpions.
Revelation 9:4 The locusts were told not to harm the grass, plants, or trees upon the earth but to punish only the people who do not have God's mark upon their foreheads.
Revelation 9:5 The locusts were allowed to make them suffer for five months, but not to kill them. The suffering they caused was like the sting of a scorpion.
Revelation 9:6 In those days people will want to die, but they will not be able to. They will hope for death, but it will escape from them.
Revelation 9:7 These locusts looked like horses ready for battle. They wore golden crowns and had human faces.
Revelation 9:8 Their hair was like a woman's long hair, and their teeth were like those of a lion.
Revelation 9:9 They wore iron armor upon their chests and their wings roared like an army of horse-drawn chariots rushing into battle.
Revelation 9:10 Their tails were like a scorpion's tail with a stinger that had the power to hurt someone for five months.
Revelation 9:11 Their king was the angel in charge of the deep pit. In Hebrew his name is Abaddon, and in the Greek it is Apollyon.
Revelation 9:12 The first woe has happened and two more woes will happen soon!
VII. The Gospel Proclaimed During Judgment
a. Revelation 11:1-6 The Temple and The Two Witnesses
Revelation 11:1 An angel gave me a measuring stick and said: “Measure around God's temple including the altar and everyone worshiping there.
Revelation 11:2 But don't measure the courtyard outside of the temple building. Leave it out because it has been given to the gentile people who don't know God, and they will trample over the holy city for forty-two months.
Revelation 11:3 My two witnesses will wear sackcloth while I let them preach for one thousand two hundred sixty days.
Revelation 11:4 These two witnesses are the two olive trees and the two lamp stands that stand in the presence of the Lord who rules the earth.
Revelation 11:5 Any enemy who tries to harm them will be destroyed by the fire that comes out from their mouths.
Revelation 11:6 They have the power to lock up the sky and keep rain from falling while they are prophesying. They can turn water to blood and cause all kinds of terrible troubles to the earth.
b. Revelation 11:7-10 The 2 Witnesses Killed and Celebrated
Revelation 11:7 After the two witnesses finish preaching God's message, the beast that lives in the deep pit will come up and fight against them, win the battle, and kill them.
Revelation 11:8 Their bodies will be left lying in the streets of the same great city where their Lord was nailed to the cross. And that city is spiritually called the city of Sodom and Egypt.
Revelation 11:9 For three and a half days the people of every nation, tribe, language, and race will stare at the bodies of these two witnesses and refuse to let them be buried.
Revelation 11:10 Everyone upon earth will celebrate and be happy. They will give gifts to each other, because of what happened to the two prophets who caused them so much trouble.
k. Revelation 11:11-12 The 2 Witnesses Resurrected
Revelation 11:11 But three and a half days later, God will breathe life into their bodies. They will stand up, and everyone who sees them will be terrified.
Revelation 11:12 Then the two witnesses will hear a loud voice from heaven saying, "Come up here." And their enemies will watch them be taken up to heaven in a cloud.
l. Revelation 11:13-14 The Second Woe - Earthquake
Revelation 11:13 At that same moment there was a terrible earthquake that destroyed one tenth of the city. Seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were frightened and praised the God who rules in heaven.
Revelation 11:14 The second woe has now happened and the third woe will be here soon.
a. Revelation 14:1-5 The Lamb and The 144,000 Jews
Revelation 14:1 I saw the Lamb standing upon Mount Zion! There were the one hundred and forty-four thousand with Him who have His name and His Father's name written upon their foreheads.
Revelation 14:2 Then I heard a sound from heaven like a roaring flood or loud thunder, or even like the music of harps.
Revelation 14:3 A new song was sung in front of God's Throne and the four living creatures and elders. No one could learn the song except the one hundred forty-four thousand who had been rescued from the earth.
Revelation 14:4 They are pure virgins and they follow the Lamb wherever He leads. They have been rescued to be presented to God and the Lamb as the first fruits upon the earth.
Revelation 14:5 They are innocent and without fault or deceitfulness.
b. Revelation 14:6-7 The First Preaching Angel
Revelation 14:6 Then I saw another angel flying across the sky announcing the eternal Good News to the people of every race, tribe, language, and nation upon the earth.

a. Revelation 12:12 The Third Woe Begins
Revelation 12:12 The heavens should rejoice with everyone who lives there, but woe and pity upon the earth and the sea, because the devil was thrown down to the earth. He knows his time is short, and is very angry."
b. Revelation 15:1 The 7 Angels and 7 Plagues
Revelation 15:1 Then I saw seven angels bringing the last seven terrible plagues. God will no longer be angry when these things have ended.
c. Revelation 15:5-8 The 7 Angels & 7 Golden Bowls
Revelation 15:5 Then I noticed that the sacred tent of testimony, used for the temple in heaven, was open.
Revelation 15:6 The seven angels bringing the seven terrible plagues were coming out of it. They were dressed in robes of pure white linen and wore belts made of pure gold.
Revelation 15:7 One of the four living creatures gave each of the seven angels a bowl made of gold. These bowls were filled with the anger of God who lives forever and ever.
Revelation 15:8 The temple quickly filled with smoke from the glory and power of God. No one could enter in until the seven angels had finished pouring out the seven last plagues.
d. Revelation 16:1-2 The First Bowl – Painful Sores
Revelation 16:1 Then I heard a voice shouting from the temple to the seven angels, "Go and empty the seven bowls of God's anger upon the earth."
Revelation 16:2 The first angel emptied his first bowl upon the earth and ugly painful sores broke out upon everyone who had the mark of the beast and worshiped the idol.
e. Revelation 16:3 The Second Bowl – Bloody Sea
Revelation 16:3 The second angel emptied his second bowl upon the sea and it turned into coagulated blood, and every living thing in the sea died.
f. Revelation 16:4-7 The Third Bowl – Bloody Rivers
Revelation 16:4 The third angel emptied his third bowl into the rivers and streams and it turned into blood.
Revelation 16:5 Then I heard the angel, who has power over water, say, "You have always been, and will always be the Holy God. You have the right to judge in this way.
Revelation 16:6 They poured out the blood of your people and your prophets and so you now gave them blood to drink, as they deserve!"
Revelation 16:7 After this, I heard the altar shout, "Yes, Lord God All-Powerful, your judgments are honest and fair."
g. Revelation 16:8-9 The Fourth Bowl – Scorching Sun
Revelation 16:8 The fourth angel emptied his bowl upon the sun and it began to scorch people like fire.
Revelation 16:9 Everyone was scorched by its great heat, and all of them cursed the name of God who had power over these terrible troubles. But no one turned to God or praised Him.
h. Revelation 16:10-11 The Fifth Bowl - Darkness
Revelation 16:10 The fifth angel emptied his fifth bowl upon the throne of the beast and darkness covered his kingdom. His people began biting their tongues in pain.
Revelation 16:11 They cursed God, who rules the heavens, because of their painful sores, but they did not stop doing evil things.
IX. The Final Battle (Armageddon)
a. Revelation 9:13-21 The Sixth Trumpet – Demonic Assassins
Revelation 9:13 The sixth angel blew the sixth trumpet and I heard a voice speak from the four corners of the golden altar that stands in the presence of God.
Revelation 9:14 The voice spoke to this angel and said, "Release the four angels who are tied up beside the great Euphrates River."
Revelation 9:15 The four angels had been preparing for this very hour, day, month, and year and now they are set free to kill one third of all the people upon the earth.
Revelation 9:16 I could hear more than two hundred million of these war horses.
Revelation 9:17 In my vision their riders wore fiery-red, dark-blue, and yellow armor on their chests. The heads of the horses looked like lions, with fire and smoke and sulfur coming out of their mouths.
Revelation 9:18 One third of the people were killed by the three terrible troubles caused by the fire, smoke, and sulfur.
Revelation 9:19 The horses had powerful mouths, and their tails were like poisonous biting snakes.
Revelation 9:20 But still the people who lived through these terrible plagues did not turn away from the idols they had made, and they did not stop worshiping demons. They kept on worshiping idols that were made of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood and not one of these idols could even see, hear, or walk.
Revelation 9:21 No one stopped murdering, practicing witchcraft, being immoral, or stealing.
b. Revelation 16:12-14 The Sixth Bowl – Euphrates River Dried Up
Revelation 16:12 The sixth angel emptied his sixth bowl upon the great Euphrates River and it completely dried up making a road for the kings from the east.
Revelation 16:13 Evil and defiling spirits, like frogs, came out of the mouths of the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet.
Revelation 16:14 These evil spirits had the power to work miracles. They went to every king upon the earth bringing them together for a war against God the All-Powerful. But that will be the day of God's great victory.
c. Revelation 16:16 Armageddon – The Second Magog Attack
Revelation 16:16 Those armies came together in a place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.
d. Revelation 14:8 Fallen Babylon and the Second Preaching Angel
Revelation 14:8 A second angel proclaimed, "The great city of Babylon that made all nations drunk and immoral has fallen! Now God is angry and makes Babylon fall."
e. Revelation 14:9 The Third Preaching Angel
Revelation 14:9 A third angel shouted, “This is what happens to you if you worship the beast, the idol, and have the mark of the beast upon your hand or forehead.
f. Revelation 14:10-13 Judgment upon the Mark of the Beast
Revelation 14:10 You will have to drink the wine that God gives to everyone who makes Him angry. You will feel His mighty anger, and you will be tortured with fire and burning sulfur, in front of the holy angels and the Lamb.
Revelation 14:11 If you worship the beast and the idol and accept the mark of its name, you will be tortured day and night. The smoke from your torture will go up forever and ever, and you will never be able to rest.
Revelation 14:12 God's people must learn to endure and obey His commands and have faith in Jesus Christ.”
Revelation 14:13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying, "Put this in writing. From now on, the Lord will bless everyone who has faith in Him when they die." The Spirit answered, "Yes, they will rest from their hard work and be rewarded for what they have done."
g. Revelation 18:1-3 The Fourth Preaching Angel
Revelation 18:1 I saw another angel come from heaven with great power and the earth was bright from his glory.
Revelation 18:2 The angel shouted, "Powerful Babylon has fallen and is now the home of demons and is now the prison of every filthy spirit, and cage of every unclean bird, and hated animal.
Revelation 18:3 Babylon's evil and immoral wine has made all the nations drunk. Every king upon the earth has slept with her, and every merchant upon the earth is rich because of her evil desires."
h. Revelation 18:4-10 Warning To Babylon
Revelation 18:4 Then I heard another voice from heaven shouting, "Escape from Babylon, my people, and don't take part in her sins and share in her punishment.
Revelation 18:5 Her sins have piled up to heaven and God remembers all the evil she has done.
Revelation 18:6 Treat her as she has treated others and make her pay double for what she has done. Make her drink twice as much of what she mixed for others.
Revelation 18:7 She honored herself with a life of luxury. Reward her now with suffering and pain. "Deep in her heart Babylon said, 'I am the queen! I will never be a widow or know what it means to be sad.'
Revelation 18:8 And so, in a single day she will suffer the pain of sorrow, hunger, and death. Fire will destroy her dead body because her judge is the powerful Lord God."
Revelation 18:9 Every king who slept with her and shared in her luxury will mourn and weep when they see the smoke from her fire.
Revelation 18:10 Her sufferings will frighten them and they will stand at a distance saying, "Pity that great and powerful city of Babylon because her judgment has arrived in a single hour."
i. Rev 18:11-24 Fallen Babylon Mourned
Revelation 18:11 Every merchant upon the earth will mourn because there is no one to buy their goods.
Revelation 18:12 There won't be anyone to buy their gold, silver, jewels, pearls, fine linen, purple cloth, silk, scarlet cloth, sweet-smelling wood, fancy carvings of ivory and wood, as well as things made of bronze, iron, or marble.
Revelation 18:13 No one will buy their cinnamon, spices, incense, myrrh, frankincense, wine, olive oil, fine flour, wheat, cattle, sheep, horses, chariots, slaves, and other humans.
Revelation 18:14 Babylon, the things your heart desired have all escaped from you. Every luxury and all your glory will be lost for ever and you will never get them back.
Revelation 18:15 The merchants have become rich because of her. But when they see her sufferings, they are terrified. They stand at a distance, crying and mourning.
Revelation 18:16 Then they shout, "Pity the great city of Babylon! She dressed in fine linen and wore purple and scarlet cloth. She had jewelry made of gold and precious stones and pearls.
Revelation 18:17 Yet in a single hour her riches disappeared." Every ship captain, passenger and sailor stood at a distance with everyone who does business by traveling upon the sea.
Revelation 18:18 When they saw the smoke from her fire, they shouted, "This was the greatest city ever!"
Revelation 18:19 They cried loudly, and in their sorrow they threw dust on their heads and said, "Pity the great city of Babylon because everyone who sailed the seas became rich from her treasures, but in a single hour the city was destroyed.
Revelation 18:20 The heavens should be happy with God's people and apostles and prophets. God has punished her for them."
Revelation 18:21 A powerful angel then picked up a huge stone and threw it into the sea. The angel said, "This is how the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to rise again.
Revelation 18:22 The music of harps, singers, flutes, and trumpets will no longer be heard. No workers will ever set up shop in that city again and the sound of grinding grain will be silenced for ever.
Revelation 18:23 Lamps will no longer shine in Babylon, and couples will never again say wedding vows there. Her merchants ruled the earth, and she fooled all the nations with her sorcery.
Revelation 18:24 The streets of Babylon contain the blood of God's people, his prophets, and all His believers."
X. The Second Coming (The 7th Year)
a. Revelation 11:15-19 The Seventh Trumpet
Revelation 11:15 The seventh trumpet sounded and loud voices were heard in heaven saying, "Now the kingdom of this world belongs to our Lord and His Chosen One! He will rule for ever and ever!"
Revelation 11:16 Then the twenty-four elders, who were seated on thrones in God's presence, knelt down and worshiped Him.
Revelation 11:17 They said, "Lord God All-Powerful, You are, You were, and we thank You because You have used your great power to begin ruling upon the earth.
Revelation 11:18 The nations were angry and you became angry too and now the time has come for the dead to be judged. It is time for you to reward your servants the prophets and all of your people who honor Your Name, no matter who they are. It is time to destroy everyone who have been destroying the earth."
Revelation 11:19 The door to God's temple in heaven opened, and the Sacred Chest could be seen inside the temple. I saw lightning and heard roars of thunder as the earth trembled and huge hailstones fell to it’s ground.
b. Revelation 19:11-13 Jesus Upon the White Horse
Revelation 19:11 I saw heaven open, and a white horse was there with it’s rider called Faithful and True, and He is always fair when He judges and makes war.
Revelation 19:12 He had eyes like flames of fire and was wearing many crowns. His name was written upon him, but only He knows it’s meaning.
Revelation 19:13 He wore a robe covered with blood and Hi Name is "The Word of God."
c. Revelation 14:14-16 Jesus Harvesting the Earth
Revelation 14:14 I saw a bright cloud with the Son of Man sitting upon it. He wore a golden crown upon His head and held a sharp sickle in His hand.
Revelation 14:15 An angel came out of the temple shouting, "Start cutting with your sickle! Harvest season is here, and all the crops upon the earth are ripe!"
Revelation 14:16 The One upon the cloud swung His sickle harvesting the crops.
d. Revelation 16:17-21 The Seventh Bowl – The Greatest Earthquake
Revelation 16:17 After the seventh angel emptied the seventh bowl into the air, a loud voice from the throne in the temple shouted, "It has been completed!"
Revelation 16:18 There were flashes of lightning, roars of thunder, and the worst earthquake in all history.
Revelation 16:19 The great city of Babylon split into three parts, and the cities of other nations fell. And God made Babylon drink from the wine cup that was filled with His anger.
Revelation 16:20 Every island sank and the mountains were leveled.
Revelation 16:21 One hundred pound hailstones fell upon the people and they cursed God because the hail was so terrible.
e. Revelation 14:17-18 The Harvesting Angel
Revelation 14:17 Another angel with a sharp sickle came out of the temple in heaven.
Revelation 14:18 An angel, with power over fire, came from the altar and shouted to the angel with the sickle, "All the grapes upon the earth have ripened so harvest them with your sharp sickle."
f. Revelation 19:14-16 The Second Coming and the Grape Pit
Revelation 19:14 Jesus was followed by armies from heaven, dressed in pure white linen, and riding upon horses.
Revelation 19:15 A sharp sword went out from His mouth attacking the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod and will show the fierce anger of God All-Powerful by trampling the grapes in the pit where the wine is made.
Revelation 19:16 On the part of the robe that covered his thigh was written, "KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS."
g. Revelation 14:19-20 The Wine Press Trampled
Revelation 14:19 The angel swung his sickle onto the earth and cut off its grapes. He threw them into a pit where they were trampled upon as a sign of God's anger.
Revelation 14:20 The pit was outside the city. Blood flowed out when the grapes were smashed and the blood turned into a river that was about two hundred miles long and almost deep enough to cover the horses.
h. Revelation 19:19-20 The Beast and Armies Defeated
Revelation 19:19 I also saw the beast and all kings of the earth gather together to fight against the Rider upon the White Horse and His army.
Revelation 19:20 But the beast was captured and so was the false prophet. This is the same prophet who had worked miracles for the beast, fooling everyone who had the mark of the beast and worshiped the idol. The beast and the false prophet were thrown alive into the Lake of Fire burning with sulfur.
XI. The Great Wedding Supper of the Lamb and Birds
a. Revelation 7:9-17 The Great Multitude
Revelation 7:9 After this, I saw a large crowd from every race, tribe, nation, and language, and they stood before the Throne and the Lamb. They wore white robes and held palm branches in their hands,
Revelation 7:10 They shouted, "Our God and Lamb, who sits upon the throne, has the power to save His people."
Revelation 7:11 The angels who stood around the throne knelt in front of it with their faces to the ground. The elders and the four living creatures knelt there with them and they all worshiped God
Revelation 7:12 saying, "Amen! Praise, glory, wisdom, thanks, honor, power, and strength belong to our God forever and ever! Amen!"
Revelation 7:13 One of the elders asked me, "Do you know these people who are dressed in white robes and where they are from?"
Revelation 7:14 "Sir," I answered, "you must know." Then he told me: "These are the ones who have gone through the great suffering. They have washed their robes in the Blood of the Lamb and have made them white.
Revelation 7:15 They stand before the Throne of God and worship Him in His Temple day and night and the One who sits upon the Throne will spread His covering tent over them and dwell with them.
Revelation 7:16 They will never hunger or thirst again, and won't be troubled by the sun or any scorching heat.
Revelation 7:17 The Lamb in the Center Throne will be their Shepherd and He will lead them to streams of Life-Giving Water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."
b. Rev 15:2-4 The Sea of Glass and The Saints
Revelation 15:2 God gave harps to the people standing upon a glass sea mixed with fire. They are the ones who had defeated the beast, the idol, and the number that tells the name of the beast.
Revelation 15:3 They began singing the song of God’s servant Moses and the Lamb, "Lord God All-Powerful, You have done great and marvelous things. You are the ruler of all nations, and You do what is just and fair.
Revelation 15:4 Lord, who doesn't honor and respect your name? You alone are holy, and all nations will come and worship You, because You have shown that You judge with fairness."
c. Revelation 19:1-10 Fallen Babylon Celebrated
Revelation 19:1 Then voices in heaven began shouting, "Praise and honor to the Lord Our God. The glorious power to save belongs to Him,
Revelation 19:2 because His judgments are honest and fair. That filthy prostitute ruined the earth with shameful deeds. But God has judged her and made her pay the price for murdering his servants."
Revelation 19:3 Then the crowd shouted, "Praise the Lord! Smoke will never stop rising from her burning body."
Revelation 19:4 After this, the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures all knelt before the throne of God and worshiped him saying, "Amen! Praise the Lord!"
Revelation 19:5 A voice from the throne said, "Everyone worship and fear our God giving all praise to Him."
d. Revelation 19:6-10 The Marriage and Supper of The Lamb
Revelation 19:6 Then I heard a large crowd sounding like a roaring flood and loud thunder saying, "Praise the Lord! Our Lord God All-Powerful now rules as King.
Revelation 19:7 The wedding day of the Lamb is here and His Bride is ready. We will rejoice and give Him praise
Revelation 19:8 She will be given a wedding dress made of pure and shining linen. This linen stands for the good things God's people have done."
Revelation 19:9 Then the angel told me, "Put this in writing. God will bless everyone who is invited to the Wedding Feast of the Lamb because these things that God has said are true."
Revelation 19:10 I knelt at the feet of the angel and began to worship him. But the angel said, "Don't do that! I am a servant, just like you and everyone else who tells about Jesus. Don't worship anyone but God. Everyone who tells about Jesus does it by the power of the Spirit."
d. Revelation 22:14-17 The Wedding Gifts of The Lamb
Revelation 2:7b Jesus said, “I let everyone who has endured eat from the Tree of Life in the center garden of God's Paradise.
Revelation 2:11b Whoever endured will not be hurt by the Second Death.
Revelation 2:17b I give them the hidden manna and a white stone with a new name written upon it. No one will know that name except the ones given the stone.
Revelation 2:27 I will give to each of them the same power that my Father has given to me. They will rule the nations with an iron rod and smash nations to pieces like clay pots.
Revelation 2:28 I will also give them the Morning Star.
Revelation 3:5 Everyone who endured will wear white clothes and their names will not be erased from the Book of Life, and I will tell my Father and His angels that they belong to me.
Revelation 3:11b and no one will be able to take away your crown.
Revelation 22:14 “God will bless all who have washed their robes and they will have the right to eat fruit from the Tree of Life, and can always enter the gates of the city.
Revelation 22:15 But outside the city will be dogs, witches, immoral people, murderers, idol worshipers, and everyone else who loves to tell lies and do wrong.
Revelation 22:16 I Am Jesus Christ! I Am the one who sent my angel to tell all of you these things for the churches. I Am David's Great Descendant, and I Am also the Bright Morning Star.
Revelation 21:6c I will freely give water from the Life-Giving Fountain to everyone who is thirsty.
Revelation 22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" Everyone who hears this should say, "Come!" If you are thirsty, come! If you want Life-Giving Water, come and take it.
e. Revelation 19:17-18,21 The Great Supper of The Birds
Revelation 19:17 Then an angel, standing upon the sun, shouted to all the birds flying in the sky, "Come and join in God's great feast!
Revelation 19:18 You can eat the flesh of kings, rulers, leaders, horses, riders, free people, slaves, important people, and everyone else."
Revelation 19:21 The rest of the army was killed by the sword that came from the mouth of the Rider on the White Horse and the birds filled themselves with the dead bodies.
XII. The Millennium
a. Revelation 20:1-3 Satan Bound 1000 Years
Revelation 20:1 An angel come down from heaven carrying the key to the bottomless pit and a big chain.
Revelation 20:2 He chained the dragon for one thousand years. He is the old snake, who is also known as the devil and Satan.

b. Revelation 20:4-6 The 1000 Year Reign
Revelation 20:4 I saw thrones with the ones who had been given the right to judge. I also saw the souls of the people who had their heads cut off because they had told about Jesus and preached God's message. They were the same ones who had not worshiped the beast or the idol, and they had refused to let its mark be put on their hands or foreheads. They will come to life and rule with Jesus Christ for a thousand years.
Revelation 20:5 No other dead were raised to life until one thousand years later.
This will be the first resurrection of the dead.

Revelation 21:1 The first heaven, the first earth, and the seas had disappeared, and I saw a new heaven and a new earth,

Revelation 21:9 One of the seven angels who had the bowls filled with the seven last terrible troubles came to me saying, "Come here and I will show you the one who will be the Bride and Wife of the Lamb."

Revelation 21:15 The angel who spoke to me had a gold measuring stick for measuring the city, and its gates and walls.

Revelation 21:17 Then the angel measured the wall, and by our measurements it was about two hundred and sixteen feet high.
Revelation 21:18 The wall was built of clear diamonds, and the city was made of pure crystal clear gold.
