The 3 Woes & 3 Trumps and why the warning in Revelation 8:13 is so important.

Updated: Jan 17

* The 3 Woes & 3 Trumps and why the warning in Revelation 8:13 is so important.


I use the 1952 Revised Standard Version (RSV) Bible that was given to me in 1973 for the main part of this article, I will refer to the King James Version (KJV) Bible also. I believe the (KJV) and (RSV) have not been altered in translation as much as some other versions of the Bible and it is used more than the (RSV) version I grew up with and still use today.


In verse Rev. 8:13 there is a very profound statement of warning.


The sounding of the 5th, 6th, & 7th Trumpets; each of these last 3 Trumpets having an additional "Woe" attached. These additional 3 Woes are an extra judgment that will occur with the sounding of these last 3 Trumpets and magnify the effect of these 3 last Trumpet judgments themselves.

______________________


In this example, compare the differences in interpretation between the (RSV) and (KJV) in Rev. 8:13.


Rev. 8:13 (RSV) Then I looked, and I heard an eagle crying with a loud voice, as it flew in midheaven, “Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, at the blasts of the other trumpets which the three angels are about to blow!”


In Rev. 8:13 (KJV) translation, the eagle is also sometimes indicated as an angel.


Rev. 8:13 (KJV) And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!


Clearly God is warning us to watch the 5th, 6th, & 7th Trumpets for a reason.

______________________


The warning of Rev. 8:13 and God’s hidden code lie in the last 3 Woes that are attached to the last 3 Trumpets; the 5th, 6th, & 7th Trumpets.


The 5th, 6th, & 7th Trumpets are the key to understanding to proper sequence or order of events recorded by John in the 22 chapters of the book Revelation.


These last 3 Trumpet events can only occur once. Not multiple times as we see elements of all 3 of these last Trumpets, each with an attached Woe, constantly reoccurring in the 8 Sub-chapters of 7, 11-14, 17-19 or John’s 3 additional visions while he is in heaven.


These last 3 Trumpets can only happen once in the 14 Main-chapters which they do.


* I will explain what I mean by a Main and Sub-chapter as we move forward.

1). The 5th Trumpet, with an attached 1st Woe, occurs or starts on Rev. 9:1.

2). The 6th Trumpet, with an attached 2nd Woe, occurs or starts on Rev. 9:13.

3). The 7th Trumpet, with an attached 3rd Woe, does not sound or blow on Rev. 10:7. This occurs on Rev. 15:1 when the 7 Angels receive the last 7 Bowls or Plagues of God’s Wrath.


Once you see the 5th, 6th, & 7th Trumpet events reoccurring in Sub-chapters 7, 11-14, 17-19 you can start to see the layering effect God is showing us.


1). The 5th Trumpet, with the attached 1st Woe, is when Michael the angel is standing on both sides of the bottomless pit in Rev. 9:1. This Bottomless Pit is opened just prior to the rise of both the Antichrist (Beast of the Sea) and the False Prophet (Beast of the Earth) in Rev. 9:1, as Satan is being removed from heaven forever.


2). The 6th Trumpet, with the attached 2nd Woe, is the rise of Antichrist (Beast of the Sea) & the False Prophet (Beast of the Earth) in Rev. 9:13.


3). The 7th Trumpet, with the attached 3rd Woe, is the 2nd coming of our Lord Jesus from heaven to earth, and prior to the 7 Bowls of God's Wrath that are handed out to the 7 Angels in Rev. 15:1.

______________________


So, lets look at the last 3 Trumpets (5th, 6th, & 7th Trumpet) sounding or blowing in detail.


The 5th Trumpet, with the attached 1st Woe, is when Michael the angel is standing on both sides of the Bottomless Pit in Rev. 9:1-2. Michael opens the Bottomless Pit just prior to the rise on earth of Antichrist (the Beast of the Sea) and the False Prophet (the Beast of the Earth) portrayed in detail during Rev. 13:1-18, which occurs on the 6th Trumpet in Rev. 9:13.


The 5th Trumpet sounds in these verses in the Book of Revelation.

(Rev. 9:1-2) (Rev. 11:7) (Rev. 17:8)


The same 5th Trumpet event occurs in Rev. 12:7-14 also and is reinforced in Isaiah 14:9, Isaiah 14:11-15, & Isaiah 14:19-20.


* Rev. 12:7-14 & Isaiah 14:9 both explain the 5th Trumpet sounding, of the Bottomless Pit opening, and what happens during this 5th Trumpet event.


Revelation 12:7-14 (KJV) And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. (1260 Days, 42 months, or 3 ½ years)

13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. (1260 Days, 42 months, or 3 ½ years)


Isaiah 14:9 (KJV) Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.


Isaiah 14:11-15 (KJV) Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.

12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

Isaiah 14:19-20 (KJV) But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.

20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.

The angel Michael moves and opens the Bottomless Pit where Hades and Hell are located.

(Rev. 6:7-8) (Rev. 10:1-6) (Isaiah 14:11-15) (Isaiah 14:19-20).

______________________


* We can see this same event of the Bottomless Pit or Hell, moving to this resurrection event in Rev. 6:7-8 during the 4th Seal also.


Rev. 6:7-8 (KJV)

7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Locusts come from the bottomless pit and torment, not kill, man for 5 months and their king is the angel of the bottomless pit, Abaddon or Apollyon. They are not to hurt anyone with the seal of God on their foreheads.

- 1st Woe has passed.

(Rev. 9:12).

______________________

The 6th Trumpet, with the attached 2nd Woe, is the rise of Antichrist (Beast of the Sea) & the False Prophet (Beast of the Earth) in Rev. 9:13.

On the 6th Trumpet Antichrist will be given authority to kill 1/3 of mankind for the period of 1260 days, 42 months, or 3 1/2 years prior to committing Abomination of Desolation on God's seat, in God's temple.

The 6th Trumpet sounds or blows on all these verses in the Bible.

(Rev. 9:13-15) (Rev. 11:1-14) (Rev. 12:4) (Rev. 12:9) (Rev. 12:12) (Rev. 13:1-18) (Rev. 17:8-11) (Isaiah 14:11-15) (Isaiah 14:19-20) (Daniel 2:40) (Daniel 7:8) (Daniel 8:9) (Daniel 8:22-23) (Daniel 11:4) (Daniel 11:7) (Matthew 24:24) (Zech. 2:6) (Zech. 6:5) (Zech. 6:12-15).

* Notice the 1st time the 6th Trumpet is blown is in Rev. 9:13-15, but the 6th Trumpet also reoccurs in (Rev. 11:1-14) (Rev. 12:4) (Rev. 12:9) (Rev. 12:12) (Rev. 13:1-18) (Rev. 17:8-11).

* This 6th Trumpet event can only happen once, and it does, it occurs in Rev. 9:13-15.

* I will soon explain how the 22 chapters work together to make a complete and chronological story of what God's plan is for end of the earth age or latter or end days.


* That the 5th, 6th, & 7th Trumpets are constantly reoccurring in multiple chapters of the Book of Revelation. But each of these last 3 Trumpets should only occur once in this last book of the Bible.


Also, during the 6th Trumpet phase, the 4 Angels-Winds-Cherubim are released that are being held during the 7th Seal event in Rev. 7:1 where John has vision of the 144,000 Elect being selected.

(Rev. 9:13-15) (Rev. 7:1-11) (Matthew 24:24) (Daniel 7:8) (Daniel 8:9) (Daniel 8:22-23) (Zech. 2:6) (Zech. 6:5) (Zech. 6:12-15).


- 2nd Woe has passed.

(Rev. 11:14).


Remember John is taken into a new vision, while in heaven, about the Nations-Peoples in Rev. 10:8-11. This additional vision of the Nations-Peoples extends out through 4 Chapters of Revelation in Sub-chapters 11, 12, 13, & 14.

______________________


Rev. 10:8 (KJV) Then the voice which I had heard from heaven spoke to me again, saying, “Go, take the scroll which is open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.”

9 So I went to the angel and told him to give me the little scroll; and he said to me, “Take it and eat; it will be bitter to your stomach, but sweet as honey in your mouth.” 10 And I took the little scroll from the hand of the angel and ate it; it was sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it my stomach was made bitter.

11 And I was told, “You must again prophesy about many peoples and nations and tongues and kings.”

______________________


3). The 7th trumpet, with the attached 3rd Woe, is when our Lord Jesus comes back (2nd Coming) from heaven to earth in Rev. 15:1, and the 7 Bowls of God's Wrath are then handed out to the 7 angels.


The 7th Trumpet sounds on these verses in the Bible.

(Rev. 15:1) (Rev. 11:15) (Rev. 17:14) (Isaiah 18:3) (Zech. 9:14) (1 Cor. 15:50-52) (1 Thes. 4:4-17) (Zeph. 1:14-16) (Zech. 9:14-15).


- 3rd Woe has passed.

There is no indication of an exact verse in Revelation that this occurs, but logically it should occur right after the end of the 7th Trumpet prior to the handing out of the 7 Bowls of God's Wrath. That it would follow the same or similar pattern as the 5th and 6th Trumpet and how the Woe that is attached to the trumpet ends with the end of that specific trumpet event.


I believe the 3rd Woe ends at the start of Rev. 15:1 which is where the 7 Bowls are handed out to the 7 Angels.


Rev. 15:1 Then I saw another portent in heaven, great and wonderful, seven angels with seven plagues, which are the last, for with them the wrath of God is ended.

* Based on this warning in Rev. 8:13 we can determine, the 5th, 6th, and 7th Trumpet can only sound once, but that these last 3 Trumpets reoccur in multiple other verses and chapters throughout the Book of Revelation, as indicated above.

______________________


The question we should address is why are these last 3 Trumpets sounding in multiple chapters of the Book of Revelation, and not just once?

It has always been my understanding there are only 7 Seals, 7 Trumpets & 7 Bowls.


That once the 7th Seal is broken in Rev. 8:1-2, God then hands out the 7 Trumpets to the 7 Angels. This means at the sounding of the 1st Trumpet; all 7 Seals have already been broken and only after all 7 Seals are broken do these 7 Trumpet Judgments start to sound or blow in Rev. 8:7.

______________________


I believe this warning in Rev. 8:13 is a (CODE) God gives us that details how to break down the 22 chapters of the Book of Revelation in the proper order or sequence of events and how this then gives us a complete picture of these events in detail. That you can build a Timeline and a Flowchart from this structure.


I have assembled a 117-step timeline that takes you from the start of the Book of Revelation to the end (This can be found in the appendix of this book).

______________________


22 CHAPTER BREAKDOWN OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION


The Book of Revelation consists of 22 chapters.


I break these 22 chapters of the Book of Revelation into what I call 14 Main-chapters and 8 Sub-chapters.

(All 22 chapters are of equal value and the use of the term Main-chapters or Sub-chapters is only used to delineate where John's 3 additional visions he is having, start and end).

- Main-chapters of the Book of Revelation are 1-6, 8-10, 15-16, & 20-22.

- Sub-chapters of the Book of Revelation are 7, 11-14, & 17-19.

- Each of these 3 sets of Sub-chapter groups, 7, 11-14, & 17-19 are an additional prophecy or vision John is having while in heaven, and that all 8 Sub-chapters of 7, 11-14, & 17-19 stand on their own and give depth to the 14 Main-chapters of 1-6, 8-10, 15-16, & 20-22.

Once John is taken to heaven in Rev. 4:1, John has 3 additional visions while he is in heaven.


So, not only is John now in heaven itself, but John will have 3 additional visions or prophecies while he is standing in heaven.


These 3 additional visions are:

A). A vision or prophecy of the 144,000 Elect (Chapter 7).

B). A vision or prophecy of the judgment of the Nations-Peoples (Chapters 11, 12, 13, & 14).

C). A vision or prophecy of the judgment of Mystery Babylon (Chapters 17, 18, & 19).


John's 3 additional visions add depth or layering to what John is already seeing in heaven. These 8 Sub-chapters and 3 additional visions act as a microscope. God is zooming down into what is happening on the ground within these 3 additional visions or prophecies that God gives John while he is standing in heaven.

Each of these 3 additional visions are like a cut-scene in a movie or a subroutine of a computer program. John sees the main scene and the events that are happening, but then John is asked to have an additional vision that will add details, depth, and information to what he had just been shown in the main scene or 14 Main-chapters.

This layering effect, of the 8 Sub-chapters 7, 11-14, 17-19, occurs within the Main-chapters of Revelation 1-6, 8-10, 15-16, & 20-22, also.

______________________


Let’s walk through the 22 chapters of the Book of Revelation, including John’s 3 additional visions, and see how these chapters are laid out; and how the Main & Sub-chapters work together to show a detailed and complete story from start to end.


Main-chapter 1 illustrates how John is visited by an angel from Jesus. John is then asked to write 7 letters to the 7 churches in Turkey or Asia minor. After completing these 7 letters, John sees a vision of Jesus standing among 7 lampstands, which represents the 7 churches. In his right hand are 7 stars that represent the 7 angels of these 7 churches and that Jesus now holds the keys to Hell, Hades and the Bottomless Pit.

Main-chapters 2-3 show John's 7 letters that he writes to these 7 churches in Turkey or Asia minor. These 7 letters represent what our Lord declares are the strong and weak points of these churches, and how they actually represent all the churches throughout the world as a whole.

In verse Rev. 4:1-2 John (alone) is physically taken to heaven, not the body or masses of the church. Nowhere in Rev. 4:1-2 does it ever indicate that anyone other than John is placed in heaven at this time. John sees God and God's throne room in heaven itself. Rev. 4:3-11 illustrates what John is seeing as he stands before God.

Rev. 5 displays the 7 sealed scroll in God's hand and how Jesus, the slain lamb, is the only one worthy to receive the scroll and open these 7 seals on this scroll.

In Rev. 6 we see our Lord Jesus actually open 6 of the 7 seals on this scroll that was given to him by God. Each time Jesus breaks one of these seals, an event sequence or judgment starts on earth or in heaven.


Notice how there is a transition from Main-chapter 6 to Main-chapter 8. At the end of chapter 6, in verses 6:12-17, we see the opening of the 6th seal, but we do not see the 7th seal opened until Rev. 8:1.

There are actually 2 transitions here. One which I indicted just above which moves you from the 6th seal to the 7th seal, and the 2nd transition which is the start of John's 1st additional vision of 3, that John will have while he is in heaven.

______________________


- This is the 1st of John's 3 additional visions.


(Step #'s below must be referenced to the 117-step timeline-flowchart chapter of this book. This additional timeline-flowchart takes you from the start of the Book of Revelation through all 22 chapters, to the end of the book or completion.)


In Sub-chapter 7 God's 144,000 Elect are chosen on the 7th Seal event in Rev. 7:1-8 (Step 12).

Sub-chapter 7 talks about how these 4 angels are holding back the 4 winds until Rev. 9:13-16 or the sounding 6th Trumpet (Step 21), which is when Antichrist (the Beast of the Sea) rises from the Bottomless Pit.

- Sub-chapter 7 has elements of the 3 Trumpets which include the last 3 Woes.

- Between the 6th Trumpet (Step 21), when Antichrist appears, and the sounding of the 7th Trumpet (Step 40), when our Lord Jesus comes back, these 144,000 Elect will battle Antichrist with the truth of God's word and most of these Elect will die for their testimony of our Lord Jesus.

Then all the Saints, Elect & Martyrs left from Great Tribulation will be raptured at 1335 Days (Step 49) and will Tabernacle with God (Step 85) and be with God. This occurs 75 Days after Abomination of Desolation, which is 1260 days from the signing of the 7-year treaty with the nations or the covenant of death and when Antichrist commits Abomination of Desolation in God's temple in Jerusalem.

______________________


In Rev. 8:1-2 the 7th seal is broken; and only then are the 7 Trumpets handed out.


(These 2 verses, Rev. 8:1-2, destroy any argument, concept, or theory that a 6th seal event can occur during either the Trumpet or Bowl phase since it is broken prior to handing out the 7 Trumpets.)


Rev. 8:1 (KJV) When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.

2 Then I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.


1). 7th Seal is broken

2). Silence for 1/2 hour

3). 7 Trumpets are handed out


- At this point, all 7 seals are broken. Only after all 7 seals are broken do these 7 angels gain access to the 7 Trumpet judgments.


- So, if this is the case, and Rev. 8:1-2 is literal, all 7 Seals are broken prior to handing out of the 7 Trumpets, the 6th Seal event cannot occur in either the 7 Trumpet or the 7 Bowl phases.

This also indicates the 6th seal is only part of the Sorrows and Birth Pains and not part of either Tribulation or Great Tribulation phases.

1). Sorrows and Birth Pains phase starts at the breaking of the 1st Seal to the signing of the 7-Year Treaty or Covenant of Death with the nations.

2). Tribulation phase starts at the signing of the 7-Year Treaty or Covenant of Death and finishes at Abomination of Desolation which is 1260 days, 42 months, or 3 1/2 years later.

3). Great Tribulation phase starts when Antichrist commits Abomination of Desolation through the 7 Bowls of God's Wrath.

This 6th Seal is only part of the Birth Pains or Sorrows which leads us to the start of the Tribulation once the 7-year treaty is signed. In Matthew 24:6-8, Mark 13:7-8 & Ezekiel 38:17, Jesus tells his disciples these things must happen (Sorrows) prior to Tribulation starting.

Tribulation of the 1260 days, 42 months, or 3 ½ years starts after the 6th Trumpet sounds and Antichrist rises to power.

Antichrist will stop the continual burnt offerings 30 days prior to the signing of the 7-year treaty with the nations (Daniel 12:11). This 1260-day period stops at Abomination of Desolation when Antichrist, in his arrogance, states that he is God in God’s seat in God’s temple (Matthew 24:29-31) (Mark 13:24-27).


In verses Rev. 8:6-12 we see the blowing of the 1st 4 Trumpets and how these devastate 1/3 of the planet.


- I believe these 1st 4 Trumpet judgments will occur in the areas of Russia, China, North Korea, Indonesia, India & Pakistan mainly the communist areas of the world. God will buffer his 10-horn region that is indicated in Ezekiel 38-39.


Rev. 8:6 Now the seven angels who had the seven trumpets made ready to blow them.

7 The first angel blew his trumpet, and there came hail and fire, mixed with blood, and they were hurled to the earth; and a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.

8 The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea.

9 A third of the sea became blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

10 The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water.

11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many died from the water, because it was made bitter.

12 The fourth angel blew his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of their light was darkened; a third of the day was kept from shining, and likewise the night.


In Rev. 8:13 John sees an eagle or angel fly across heaven and states something very critical or profound.


Rev. 8:13 (RSV) Then I looked, and I heard an eagle crying with a loud voice, as it flew in midheaven, “Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, at the blasts of the other trumpets which the three angels are about to blow!”


- This is where the Revelation Code lies.


- This tells us that we need to watch when the 5th, 6th, and 7th Trumpets occur in the Main-chapters and that they are constantly reoccurring in Sub-chapter 7, 11-14, & 17-19.

- Since there is only one 5th, 6th, and 7th Trumpet, these can only truly occur once in the 14 Main-chapters but reoccur multiple times throughout the Sub-chapters of 7, 11-14, & 17-19.

- Rev. 10:7, this takes us to the 7th Trumpet that about to sound - but the 7th Trumpet does not sound here. This event does not actually occur or happen until Rev. 15:1 when God starts to hand out the 7 Bowls of God's Wrath, which is at the end of the 7 Trumpet phase.

Rev. 15:1 Then I saw another portent in heaven, great and wonderful, seven angels, with seven plagues, which are the last, for with them the Wrath of God is ended.

- The 2nd of John's 3 additional visions is contained in Sub-chapter 11, 12, 13, & 14 which is about the prophecy of the nations and peoples.


Sub-chapters 11, 12, 13, and 14, each of these Sub-chapters stands alone and reinforces the above Main-chapters (1-6, 8-10, 15-16, & 20-22).


Each of these Sub-chapters allows God to layer in detail & depth into the Main-chapters, like a microscope zooming in to give clarity to what John has already seen.


John's 2nd vision starts at Rev. 10:8 when he is asked to eat a little scroll and now, he will have a new vision while in standing in heaven, about the nations and peoples. This prophecy of the nations and peoples include Sub-chapter 11, 12, 13, & 14.

Rev. 10:8 (KJV) Then the voice which I had heard from heaven spoke to me again, saying, “Go, take the scroll which is open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.”

9 So I went to the angel and told him to give me the little scroll; and he said to me, “Take it and eat; it will be bitter to your stomach, but sweet as honey in your mouth.” 10 And I took the little scroll from the hand of the angel and ate it; it was sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it my stomach was made bitter.

11 And I was told, “You must again prophesy about many peoples and nations and tongues and kings.”


- Remember in Rev. 10:7, this takes us to the 7th Trumpet that is about to sound or blow - but the 7th Trumpet does not sound here.

This event does not actually occur or happen until Rev. 15:1 when God starts to hand out the 7 Bowls of God's Wrath to the 7 Angels.


When John is given this little scroll in Rev. 10:8 and he is told to eat it up, John is then taken into another vision of the nations and peoples, and this radiates out for 4 chapters. Sub-chapter 11, 12, 13, & 14 each layer the events that John just had prior to this between the 6th and 7th Trumpets. Since the 7th Trumpet does not sound until Rev. 15:1, what is God showing us here?

Sub-chapter 11 starts out with John measuring the Gods temple and not the courtyard outside the temple. That this will be given to the peoples-nations & gentiles to trample for 1260 Days, 42 months, or 3 1/2 years (Rev. 11:1-2).


In verse Rev. 11:3 we see that the 2 witnesses are brought forth and they appear and prophesy to these nations and peoples for 1260 days while "clothed in sackcloth". Rev. 11:4-6 explains how these 2 witnesses have the ability to "shut the sky and smite the earth with every plague, as often as they desire". Once they have completed their testimony after these 1260 days, Antichrist will commit Abomination of Desolation, make war with them, and overcome them both (Rev. 11:7). Rev. 11:8-13 explains to us that both 2 witnesses will lie in the street for 3 1/2 days prior to being resurrected and taken to heaven by God.


At the end of this sequence of events is the finish of the 2nd Woe and the end of the 6th Trumpet in Rev. 11:14; this is also the same event Rev. 11:4 & Rev. 15:1.


- If this is the case, Sub-chapter 11 will start at the signing of the 7-year treaty and run to Abomination of Desolation 1260 days later. That just after Abomination of Desolation we will see these 2 witnesses overcome, die or perish, lie in the streets for 3 1/2 days, and then both are resurrected to heaven and concludes or ends the 6th Trumpet with the attached 2nd Woe. 7th Trumpet would then sound at the beginning of Rev. 15:1, as stated above.

Sub-chapter 12 displays the imagery of a woman that appears in heaven clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars (Rev. 12:1). This woman is with child and ready to give birth (Rev. 12:2). In verse Rev. 12:3-4 a great dragon (Satan) appears in heaven and that he and 1/3 of the angels will fall or are thrown to earth from heaven in this event. Satan will attempt to devour the child once it is born. Once this occurs our Lord Jesus will be brought forth in heaven and the woman will be hidden in the wilderness, a place God has prepared for her for 1260 days. These are the 1260 days, 42 months, or 3 ½ years of the Tribulation phase from the signing of the 7-year treaty with the nations and peoples to the Abomination of Desolation (Rev. 12:5-6).


Rev. 12:7-9 explains that at this time Satan has created a war in heaven and that the angel Michael will stand up, as he stands on both sides of the bottomless pit (5th Trumpet). Michael then throws or removes Satan and the angels that follow him from heaven forever and they fall to earth for the period of 1260 days, 42 months, or 3 ½ years.


Rev. 12:10-12 illustrates how heaven rejoices of this purging of Satan and these fallen angels, but that the earth and sea should be concerned "for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!” (1260 days, 42 months, or 3 1/2 years).

Rev. 12:13-17 tells us that once Satan realizes that he has been removed from heaven and thrown to earth, he will pursue the woman into the wilderness. That she will be hidden for 1260 days, and he will make war with the rest of her offspring, on those who keep the commandments of God and bear testimony to Jesus as he stood on the sand of the sea.


This takes us into Sub-chapter 13 where we talk about the 6th Trumpet sounding and the rise of the Beast of the Sea (Antichrist) and the Beast of the Earth (False Prophet).

Sub-chapter 13 is all about the 6th Trumpet and the rise of both the Antichrist (the Beast of the Sea) and the False Prophet (the Beast of the Earth).


Rise of Antichrist or the Beast of the Sea & 6th Trumpet event


Rev. 13:1-2 explains how a diversified beast kingdom will rise that will include 10 horns (nations) from 7 past and future empires-kingdoms that the Jewish people endure throughout history. That this will be a new diversified 8th kingdom from these 7 past and future empires-kingdoms above in the end days. It states that this new diversified kingdom will come from these 3 areas (Leopard - Turkey, Bear - Iran, Lion - Iraq/Syria). That Satan will give Antichrist his authority and throne or seat of power for 1260 days, 42 months, or 3 ½ years. The Seat of Satan or the Beast is located in Per′gamum, Turkey.


In verses Rev. 13:3-4 we are told that this "new diversified beast kingdom" will rise from these past 7 kingdoms into a new 8th Beast kingdom or empire. That one of these heads will be mortally wounded to death. That this 7th head will be healed, and that a new 8th head or beast kingdom or empire will form from this 7th head destruction of Gog of Ezekiel 38-39 into a supernatural being called Antichrist, and that the whole earth will follow and worship this "beast".


This event is also explained in detail in Isaiah 14:9, 14:11-15, & 14:19-20.


Rise of the False Prophet or the Beast of the Earth & 6th Trumpet event


Rev. 13:11-12 illustrates how a 2nd beast will rise from the earth, that it has two horns like a lamb, and it spoke like a dragon. That this 2nd beast has all the authority of the 1st and makes the earth, and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed. That this 2nd beast is allowed to deceive the whole world with great signs, including fire from heaven to earth in view of men (Rev. 13:13). That the Beast of the Earth (False Prophet) will compel the nations and peoples to create an image of the beast which was wounded by the sword and yet lived; (Rev. 13:14). Rev. 13:15-17 explains how this Beast of the Earth (False Prophet) is allowed to bring this image of the 1st beast or the Beast of the Sea (Antichrist), to life. That everyone will worship this image of this beast or be slain.


Rev. 13:11 Then I saw another beast which rose out of the earth; it had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon.

12 It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed. 13 It works great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of men;

14 and by the signs which it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast, it deceives those who dwell on earth, bidding them make an image for the beast which was wounded by the sword and yet lived;

15 and it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast so that the image of the beast should even speak, and to cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.

16 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead,

17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.

Rev. 13:18 ends with a warning to the nations and peoples that are on the ground in latter or end days, that Tribulation of the 1260 days, 42 months, or 3 ½ years is coming once these 2 beasts rise.

Rev. 13:18 This calls for wisdom: let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number, its number is six hundred and sixty-six.


Notice that the number "666" is not attached to Antichrist or the Beast of the Sea.


Why?


Because it is not Antichrists number.


"666" is the number of the 2nd beast, the Beast of the Earth, the False Prophet.

Sub-chapter 14 illustrates how our Lord Jesus is standing on Mt. Zion and with him are the Elect, Saints, & Martyrs from Great Tribulation that have been sealed by God in Rev. 14:1.


This event occurs when the 7th Trumpet sounds in Rev. 15:1, just prior to the 7 Bowls of God’s Wrath being poured out, which radiate throughout both chapters of Rev. 15 & 16.

Rev. 14:2-5 is when the rapture, that everyone talks about occurs, and is only for the Elect, Saints, & Martyrs of Great Tribulation, and not the masses or the body of the church.

The removal of the masses-peoples (dead) occurs in Rev. 20:11-15, once the Great White Throne descends, and the Book of Life is opened in heaven. This removal may also include the martyrs of the 5th seal and Tribulation also; since these individuals are told they will join later with the others that hold their testimony to the end or have perished.

In my opinion these masses-peoples (dead) rise or join only once the Book of Life is opened in heaven in Rev. 20:11-15.


Rev. 14:6-7 shows an angel flying through midheaven and warns the peoples and nations that are left that God will now pour down His hour of judgment (15 days on earth). That this is their last chance to turn to Jesus for salvation or perish in His Father's (God's) Wrath or 7 Bowl judgments.


In verse Rev. 14:8 a 2nd angel flies over midheaven and proclaims that “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who made all nations drink the wine of her impure passion.”

(This is a 5th Bowl event and will judge and destroy this city, Per'gamum Turkey, the Seat of Satan, or Satan's Bride (Isaiah 21)).


Rev. 14:9-11 shows a 3rd angel flying through midheaven to warn the wicked people left on earth, this is their last chance. They can either turn to Jesus or perish in God's Wrath or 7-Bowl phase.


Rev. 14:9 And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If any one worships the beast and its image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand,

10 he also shall drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured unmixed into the cup of his anger, and he shall be tormented with fire and sulphur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.

11 And the smoke of their torment goes up for ever and ever; and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.”

Rev. 14:12-13 tells his Elect-Saints-Martyrs-Priests-Christians to endure to the end and keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus and if they do “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!” (Indicating most of the people perish in this process).


Rev. 14:14-16 illustrates how an angel comes out of the temple of God and tells the Lord Jesus to make his final harvest of the whole earth.

In verse Rev. 14:17-20, one last angel, which also has a sickle, will gather the wine or wicked on the whole earth. That once these people are harvested, they will be placed in the winepress of the Wrath of God.

- This ends the 2nd vision that John is having about the nations and peoples. It takes us back to the end of Rev. 10:7 when the 7th Trumpet is about to be blown, to Rev. 15:1 when the 7th Trumpet actually is blown the very 1st time in the Main-chapters.


Rev. 15 & 16 are all about the Wrath of God, which is the 7 Bowl phase.

- Some scholars indicate that the 6th seal event or the "Wrath of the Lamb or Jesus" (Rev. 6:16) is the same as Main-chapter 15 & 16 (God's Wrath or 7 Bowls). This is not the case at all. The 6th seal event is the "Wrath of the Lamb or Jesus” and is not the same as the "Wrath of God or the Father" or 7 Bowls which happens in Rev. 15:1.


In verse Rev. 15:1, this details how once the 7th Trumpet is sounded, the 7 angels are then given out the 7 Bowls, and once these are poured out “the Wrath of God is finished”, and the “Mystery of God is completed” as stated also in Rev. 10:7


Rev. 10:7 (KJV) But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel (7th Trumpet), when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

Rev. 15:1 Then I saw another portent in heaven, great and wonderful, seven angels, with seven plagues, which are the last, for with them the wrath of God is ended.


Rev. 15:2 again shows the rapture of the Elect, Saints, and Martyrs from Great Tribulation or the 1st fruits to be harvested. These are those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name.


Rev. 15:2-4 tells us how they are given a harp and a new song that only they can sing.


Rev. 15:5-8 explains how the 7 angels are then released from the temple of God and how these 7 angels go forth to ready these 7 Bowls to be poured out in Rev. 16:1-21. That no one is allowed to enter the temple of God until all 7 Bowl judgments are complete.


Rev. 16 displays all 7 Bowls dropping down on the wicked peoples left on earth.


Rev. 16:1 tells the 7 Angles to go forth and pour out the 7 Bowls of God's Wrath.

Rev. 16:2, the 1st Bowl is poured out and foul and evil sores came upon the men who bore the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.

Rev. 16:3, the 2nd Bowl is poured out into the sea, and it became like the blood of a dead man, and every living thing died that was in the sea.


Rev. 16:4-7, the 3rd Bowl is poured out into the rivers and the fountains of water, and they became blood.


Rev. 16:8-9, the 4th Bowl is poured out on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch men with fire; men were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues, and they did not repent and give him glory.

Rev. 16:10-11, the 5th Bowl is poured out on the throne of the beast (Seat of Satan - Per'gamum Turkey), and its kingdom was in darkness; men gnawed their tongues in anguish and cursed the God of heaven for their pain and sores and did not repent of their deeds.

Rev. 16:12, the 6th Bowl is poured out on the great river Euphra′tes, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east.

Rev. 16:13 details how 3 frogs, souls, or spirits, being removed from Antichrist, False Prophet, and Satan.


Rev. 16:14-16, show again God's last and final warning to the wicked left and that he is preparing the wicked (nations-peoples) for the battle of Armageddon during this 6th bowl event.


Rev. 16:17, the 7th Bowl is poured out in the air and a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, “It is done!”


Rev. 16:18 shows flashes of lightning, voices, peals of thunder, and a great earthquake such as had never been since men were on the earth, so great was that earthquake.

Rev. 16:19 details how God splits Mystery Babylon into 3 parts and all the nations of the world fall.

Rev. 16:20-21 states that every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found; and great hailstones, heavy as a hundredweight, dropped on men from heaven, till men curses God for the plague of the hail, so fearful was that plague.


* Remember that the 7th Trumpet does not sound in Rev. 10:7 this happens on Rev. 15:1. Rev. 15:1 starts the 7-Bowl phase and runs through to the end of Main-chapter 16.

* Also, at the beginning of Main-chapter 20, Antichrist and False Prophet are being thrown in the Lake of Fire, and Satan is bound for 1,000 years in the Bottomless Pit. This transition is from Rev. 16:12-21 to Rev. 20:1.


1). These events show the 6th Bowl being poured out, the 3 kings that come from the east across the Euphrates (Antichrist, False Prophet, & Satan), and the 3 frogs being exercised from them (Rev. 16:12-13).

2). All the nations left prepare for the battle of Armaged′don, the final battle prior to the millennium or 1,000 years (Rev. 16:14-16).

3). The 7th Angel pours out the 7th Bowl in the air and cleanses the planet. It is proclaimed "It is done". God is telling us that the marriage of heaven and earth is about to happen (Rev. 16:17).

4). God places his final judgement against Mystery Babylon, the Seat of Satan - Per′gamum, Turkey, and splits it into 3 parts and all the cities of the all the nations fall. That all nations and peoples left will drink of the cup of God's Wrath (Rev. 16:18-19).

5). That every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found; and great hailstones, heavy as a hundredweight, dropped on men from heaven, till men cursed God for the plague of the hail, so fearful was that plague (Rev. 16-20-21).

6). Rev. 20:1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain. 2 And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, 3 and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years were ended. After that he must be loosed for a little while.


* Something profound happens to John in Rev. 17:1. John is removed by this angel to a wilderness place where he sees a vision of the rise and fall of Mystery Babylon that occurs for 3 chapters in Sub-chapters 17, 18, & 19.


Rev. 17:1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven Bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who is seated upon many waters,

2 with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and with the wine of whose fornication the dwellers on earth have become drunk.”

3 And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns.

4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and bedecked with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her fornication;

5 and on her forehead was written a name of mystery: “Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of earth’s abominations.”

6 And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her I marveled greatly.


This new vision brings us back to what I had alluded to earlier when I talked about the Seat of Satan - Per′gamum, Turkey.

*"An'tipas my witness" (Rev. 2:13).

- The 3rd of John's 3 additional visions is contained in Sub-chapters 17, 18, & 19 which is about the prophecy of the rise of Mystery Babylon, Per'gamum Turkey, and its destruction on the 5th Bowl.

- Sub-chapters 17, 18 & 19 also reinforce the Main-chapters 6, 8-10, 15-16, & 20-22, and are about the complete destruction of Mystery Babylon, mostly dealing with Main-chapters 9, 10, 15, 16, & 20.


- This transformation from 16:12-21 to Rev. 20:1 allows John to be taken into his 3rd vision.


In Rev. 17:7 the angel tells John not to marvel at this city of Satan.


Rev.17:7 But the angel said to me, “Why marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast with seven heads and ten horns that carries her. That as Satan is being thrown from heaven & Gog of Ezekiel 38-39 is being resurrected from the Bottomless Pit as Isaiah tells us a minimum 3 times in 14:9, 14:11-15, & 14:19-20 and is also explained in Rev. 13:1-4.

Rev. 17:8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is to ascend from the bottomless pit and go to perdition; and the dwellers on earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will marvel to behold the beast, because it was and is not and is to come.

The whole world will follow this abomination called Antichrist and only the people that are found in the Book of Life and do not follow Antichrist will gain eternity with Jesus & God at the end.


In verses Rev. 17:9-14, John is shown the structure of the beast system. This radiates out from Daniel 2, 7 & 8. That the old kingdoms of the past will affect the world of today as new kingdoms to come as we move into the 6th, 7th, and the diversified 8th. This destruction of Gog of Ezekiel 38-39 will be the catalyst that allows the physical resurrection of Antichrist, as Satan is being removed from heaven by Michael the Angel.

______________________

These 8 empire-kingdom breakdown in this order from past to future.


We are now moving into the 7th kingdom and once the leader of Turkey, Gog of Ezekiel 38-39 is destroyed and resurrected, this being will become Antichrist.


The 8th diversified kingdom or beast system will form once Antichrist rises and takes control.

1st Kingdom - Egyptian.

2nd Kingdom - Assyrian.

3rd Kingdom - Gold Head - Babylon – Iraq (Lion).

4th Kingdom - Silver Shoulders - Medo-Persia - Iran – Shia (Bear).

5th Kingdom - Bronze Waist - Grecian Empire - Turkey – Sunni – (Leopard).

6th Kingdom - Iron Legs - Rome - Two divisions - Eastern and Western.

7th Kingdom - Feet of Clay & Iron - Islamic Ottoman Empire - Turkey - 10-Horns.

Gog of Ezekiel 38-39 that attack Israel. Gog is Erdogan of Turkey.

Gog is the White Horseman or 1st Seal of Revelation.

Gog is the New Ottoman Emperor.

Gog will die and be buried in Hamon-gog.

4 regions form.

8th Kingdom (Beast) - Antichrist - Little Horn - Turkey.

3 of the 4 regions are overtaken and fall.

(Diversified Beast Kingdom forms out of area of the 4 regions).

______________________


In Rev. 17:15-18 John is told that the waters are the nations and peoples. That this 10-horn region, indicated in Ezekiel 38-39, will be the epicenter of the beast system ruled by Antichrist. But, just prior to the 5th Bowl being poured out on the Seat of Satan - Per′gamum, Turkey; the nations and peoples will lash out against Satan's Bride and rape her of her riches and burn her to the ground just prior to God's own 5th Bowl judgment.


This 5th Bowl judgment of Satan's (Bride) will move directly into the 6th Bowl judgment of Antichrist or the (Groom), as the 3 frogs coming out of Satan, Antichrist, & False Prophet just prior to the battle of Armageddon.


Rev. 18:1-3 illustrates an angel coming down from heaven and having great authority and proclaiming that


Rev. 18:2 “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!

It has become a dwelling place of demons,

a haunt of every foul spirit,

a haunt of every foul and hateful bird;

3 For all nations have drunk the wine of her impure passion,

and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her,

and the merchants of the earth have grown rich with the wealth of her wantonness.”

In Rev. 18:4-9, God issues his last warning to leave this (city) bride that is about to be judged. That her plagues will come in one day. That several plagues will befall Satan’s Bride and she will be burned by fire during the 5th Bowl event.

Rev. 18:16-17 (RSV)


16 “Alas, alas, for the great city that was clothed in fine linen, in purple and scarlet, bedecked with gold, with jewels, and with pearls! 17 In one hour all this wealth has been laid waste.”


Rev. 18:10-20 details how the merchants and world mourn that Mystery Babylon is under judgment by God. That all commerce has stopped there and that they fear her judgments as they stand and watch from a distance (Isaiah 21).

Rev. 18:21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying,

“So shall Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence, and shall be found no more;

22 and the sound of harpers and minstrels, of flute players and trumpeters, shall be heard in thee no more; and a craftsman of any craft shall be found in thee no more; and the sound of the millstone shall be heard in thee no more;

23 and the light of a lamp shall shine in thee no more; and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall be heard in thee no more; (Antichrist & his bride the seat of Satan - Per′gamum, Turkey). for thy merchants were the great men of the earth, and all nations were deceived by thy sorcery.

24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain on earth.”

*"An'tipas my witness" (Rev. 2:13).


Sub-chapter Rev. 19:1-3 starts out with the rapture of the Elect, Saints, & Martyrs from Great Tribulation that occur in Main-chapter Rev. 15:1-2. That Mystery Babylon has been judged and God has avenged on her the blood of his servants.”


- (Rapture - is only the Elect, Saints, and Martyrs from Great Tribulation).


Rev. 19:4 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who is seated on the throne, saying, “Amen. Hallelujah!”

5 And from the throne came a voice crying, “Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, small and great.”

Rev. 19:6 Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty thunderpeals, crying,

“Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns.

7 Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready;

8 it was granted her to be clothed with fine linen, bright and pure”—

for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.


- (Removal of the masses or body of Christ).

- (This also occurs in Rev. 20:11-15).


Rev. 19:9 And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are true words of God.” 10 Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God.” For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.


In Rev. 19:11-16 shows the glory of our Lord Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lords, coming down from heaven on the 7th Trumpet, which occurs in Rev. 15:1 just prior to the 7-Bowls of God's Wrath being poured out and the Rapture occurs in Rev. 15:2.


That during this 7 Bowl phase all peoples and nations left will be judged by God in heaven as our Lord Jesus returns from heaven to earth to vanquish the wicked left on earth.

Rev. 19:11 Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. 12 His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems; and he has a name inscribed which no one knows but himself. 13 He is clad in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. 14 And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, followed him on white horses. 15 From his mouth issues a sharp sword with which to smite the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron; he will tread the wine press of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. 16 On his robe and on his thigh he has a name inscribed, King of kings and Lord of lords.


Rev. 19:17 displays an angel standing in the sun he calls for all birds in midheaven to: “Come, gather for the great supper of God, 18 to eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, both small and great.”


Rev. 19:19 And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies gathered to make war against him who sits upon the horse and against his army.

- This is the same event as the 6th Bowl or the battle of Armageddon (Rev. 16:20).

Rev. 19:20 And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had worked the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulphur. 21 And the rest were slain by the sword of him who sits upon the horse, the sword that issues from his mouth; and all the birds were gorged with their flesh.

- This transformation, as stated earlier, occurs from 16:12-21 to Rev. 20:1.

- That Sub-chapter 17, 18 & 19 are a stand-alone vision of the rise-to-fall of Mystery Babylon.

- That John's 3rd vision starts at Rev. 17:1 and completes on Rev. 19:21.


Main-chapter 20 is about the Antichrist and False Prophet being thrown in the lake of fire and binding of Satan for 1,000 years in the bottomless pit. This transition is from Rev. 16:12-21 to Rev. 20:1.

These events show the 6th Bowl being poured out, the 3 kings that come from the east across the Euphrates (Antichrist, False Prophet & Satan), and the 3 frogs being exercised from them.

In Rev. 20:7 once we see that Satan is loosened for a short period at the end of the millennium and the 2nd Gog-Magog War occurs.

- This is not the same Gog war as Ezekiel 38-39.

  1. In Ezekiel 39:11, Gog and all his armies are buried in a physical grave in northern Israel called the Valley of Hamon-Gog. In Ezekiel 38:12 God tells us it takes 7 months to cleanse the land. God then indicates in Ezekiel 39:9-10 the people/nation will use the fuels and weapons for 7-years eluding to the coming Tribulation and Great Tribulation periods.

  2. In Rev. 20:9 states that the individuals that join Satan after he is released at the end of the millennium, will be consumed by God's hand by fire and not buried in a grave of any kind as they are in Ezekiel 38-39. These individuals of the 1,000-year millennium are not flesh in nature and are spiritual energy instead and are in heaven at this time. For flesh will not last for 1,000 years and we have no cares of the flesh.

  3. These Elect-Martyrs-Saints that fall or are deceived, and they are then consumed by God's hand by fire will not see the 2nd death as stated in Rev. 20:6.

Why?


Because they are consumed by fire from God himself and they are never subjected to the 2nd death, which is being thrown in the Lake of Fire for eternity.

Rev. 20:4 Then I saw thrones, and those seated on them were given authority to judge. I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony to Jesus and for the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. Over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him a thousand years.


4. Only after the destruction of these Elect-Martyrs-Saints at the end of the 1,000-year millennium do we see the removal of the masses, or the body of Christ, & being judged as the White Throne descends and the Book of Life is opened in heaven. These spiritual beings will either be allowed into eternity or be devoured in the Lake of Fire and never see access to God's new kingdom and eternity.


- So, this set of events clearly disproves that rapture of the masses is prior to the 7 Seals or that the masses are somehow removed when John is taken to heaven on Rev. 4:1.


- It also shows that the Rapture just after our Lord comes back, 2nd coming, on the 7th Trumpet (Rev. 15:1) and the 7 Bowls of God's Wrath are handed out. That is only include the Elect-Martyrs-Saints from Great Tribulation (Rev. 7:14) and it is clearly not for the masses or the Body of Christ. That the dead in on earth, in the sea, & in hell rise just prior the White Throne event and the Book of Life being opened in heaven.

Rev. 21 through Rev. 22:7 display the marriage of God's bride, in Jerusalem, and His Kingdom being brought back to Earth and all God's rewards to those who prevail to the end and hold their faith through everything coming.

Summary:


* You must understand how to read the 22 chapters of Revelation in the proper order. Once you understand this order sequence and how these 22 chapters are laid out and occur, you can then build a proper calendar of events and see what and how John's vision is to occur in the next 6 years.


That the Parable of the Fig Tree does matter in Psalm 90:10 and how all things must be or occur before the end of this strong generation, 4-score or 80 years of the nation of Israel which will be completed on May 14, 2028.

* Remember John has (3) cut scenes or (3) additional visions while in heaven.

At the beginning of Chapter 7, the end of Chapter 10 and the beginning of Chapter 17.

1). The 1st vision is to tell us about the selection of the Elect and what happens to them (Sub-chapter 7).

2). The 2nd vision is that John will prophesy about the nations or peoples (Sub-chapters 11-14).

3). The 3rd vision is that John will prophesy about the rise and fall of Mystery Babylon (Sub-chapters 17-19).

The warning and code lie in the last 3 Woes that are attached to the last 3 Trumpets as stated in Rev. 8:13. The 5th, 6th & 7th Trumpets. These events can only occur once. Not multiple times as we see elements of all 3 of these last Trumpets constantly reoccurring in the 8 Sub-chapters of 7, 11-14, 17-19. But these last 3 Trumpets can only happen once in the 14 Main-chapters which they do.

1). The 5th Trumpet, with an attached 1st Woe, occurs on Rev. 9:1.

2). The 6th Trumpet, with an attached 2nd Woe, occurs on Rev. 9:13.

3). The 7th Trumpet, with an attached 3rd Woe, does not sound or blow on Rev. 10:7 and this occurs on Rev. 15:1 when the 7 Angels receive the last 7 Bowls or Plagues.


Once you see the 5th, 6th, & 7th Trumpet events reoccurring in the Sub-chapters 7, 11-14, 17-19 you can start to see the layering effect God is showing us.

1). The 5th Trumpet, with the attached 1st Woe, is when Michael the angel is standing on both sides of the bottomless pit in Rev. 9:1. This Bottomless Pit is opened just prior to the rise of both the Antichrist (Beast of the Sea) and the False Prophet (Beast of the Earth) in Rev. 9:1.


2). The 6th Trumpet, with the attached 2nd Woe, is the rise of Antichrist (Beast of the Sea) & the False Prophet (Beast of the Earth) in Rev. 9:13.


3). The 7th Trumpet, with the attached 3rd Woe, is the 2nd coming our Lord Jesus from heaven to earth, and prior to the 7 Bowls of God's Wrath that are handed out to the 7 Angels in Rev. 15:1.

These last 3 Trumpet events can only occur once.

It's that simple; and why God gives us this key in Rev. 8:13 to understanding His Book called Revelation.
