Book of Revelation
Here is a list of events mentioned in John’s Revelation, which simply summarizes the series of events that take place in the book and avoids interpretations:
- 1. John hears the voice of Jesus from behind him, instructing him to record the following series of events on a scroll and send it to “the seven churches” (Revelations 1:10-11). After writing down Jesus’ messages to the seven churches (Revelations, chapters 2 and 3), Jesus says to John, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this” and John is taken to heaven through the Spirit (Revelations 4:1-2). Here, “the four living creatures” and the “twenty-four elders” are introduced (Revelations 4:6-10.
- 2. John mentions that in the right hand of God is a scroll that is sealed by seven seals. The seven seals prevent anyone from being able to see what’s written inside and John weeps from this. But, one of the elders tell him not to weep because the “Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David” is able to open the scroll.
- 4. Six of the seven seals are opened, each followed by some terrible event that affects the world – most notably after the sixth seal where the human race seeks refuge in the caves of the mountains to escape the wrath of Jesus (Revelations 6).
- 5. Four angels are about to attack earth, but another angel instructs them that they have to wait until they can “put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God”. Afterward, 144,000 from the 12 tribes of Israel are given their seals which save them horrific events that are to soon follow (Rev. 7:1-8).
- 6. The “great multitudes” who survived the “great tribulation” are before the throne of God (Revelations 7:9-17).
- 7. The seventh seal is finally broken, an angel hurls a golden censure, filled with fire, towards the earth (Revelations 8:1-5.
- 8. Six out of the seven angels with trumpets sound their trumpets, each triggering a global catastrophe (Revelations 8:6-9:19.
- 10. God mentions to John that the Gentiles “will trample on the holy city for 42 months”, but God will send to Jerusalem “two witnesses” who will torment them for 1,260 days with fire, drought, and plagues. Eventually, Satan kills the two prophets and the inhabitants of earth celebrate their deaths. But, God will have them resurrected after having been dead for three and a half days and an earth quake occurs (Revelations 11).
- 11. The seventh trumpet is sounded and war breaks out in heaven (Revelations 11:15-12:9).
- 12. A woman gives birth to a son who is to “rule the nations with an iron scepter”. Satan tries to kill him, but fails to do so.
- 13. Satan is vanquished from heaven and forced to reside on earth, where he wages war with the rest of the offspring of the woman mentioned above.
- 14. The beast from out of the sea is given authority to rule over the earth, the people of earth marvel the beast’s abilities and worship him and “the dragon”, saying “Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?” (Revelations 13:5).
- 15. After the beast from the sea suffers from what appears to be a mortal wound, another beast, the beast of the earth, takes his place and exercises the same authority as the previous beast on his behalf. This beast is able to perform many miraculous miracles and forces those without the seal of God on their foreheads to worship both the new beast and the image of the old beast and forces them to wear his mark on either their foreheads or right hands (“11-16&src=! Revelations 13″11-16).
- 16. The earth is harvested (Rev. 14:14-20).
- 17. In the fifteenth chapter, John writes of Seven Angels with Seven plagues, whose plagues are the last plagues to come – ever. He states that until their plagues are complete no one can enter the temple of God in heaven. In the following chapter, the seven final plagues are written in detail.
- 18. The woman who rides on the head of the beast is introduced in the seventeenth chapter. The entire chapter is quite symbolic, but an angel explains to John the meaning of what he is seeing. The woman, who is referred to as “the great prostitute”, “is the great city who rules over the kings of the earth” (Rev. 17:18), who is envied by the ten kings who give power to the beast and is destroyed by those ten kings. “They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the beast their power to rule, until God’s words are fulfilled” (Rev. 17:16-17).
- 19. Babylon falls in the eighteenth chapter. This causes the merchants of the earth to weep because no one is able to buy their products anymore after Babylon falls.
- 20. At the end of the nineteenth chapter a “white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True” is introduced. “With Justice he makes war” (Rev. 19:11). This rider is the boy mentioned in chapter twelve. John references Psalm 2:9 when he writes “He will rule them with an iron scepter” (Rev. 19:15). This is when the first war between the people of God and rest of the world takes place. After the war has finished the beast and the false prophet are taken captive and thrown into the lake of fire, while all other enemy combatants are killed and their corpses left out on the field for the birds of the sky to devour their flesh (Rev. 19:20-21).
- 21. God’s kingdom on earth is established in Israel for one thousand years (Rev. 20:1-6).
- 22. Satan is released from his prison and once again deceives the nations of the earth, who all “marched across the breadth of the earth” to make war with Israel, but fire is sent down from heaven and destroys their armies (Rev. 20:7-10).
- 23. The dead are judged (Rev. 20:11-14).
- 24. In chapter 21, both the earth and heaven are destroyed. God creates a new world where He dwells with men. “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away (Rev. 21:4).
 Seven seals
- First Seal (Rev. 6:1-2): The White Horse of the Apocalypse. When he comes, he is given a crown and he goes out bent on conquest.
- Second Seal (Rev. 6:3-4): When the Red Horse comes he is given a large sword and he takes peace from the world, causing men to kill each other.
- Third Seal (Rev. 6:5-6): When the Black Horse comes he causes severe famine.
- Fourth Seal (Rev. 6:7-8): The Pale Horse causes pestilence and death from the sword, famine, plague and wild beasts and Hades follow it. One fourth of the world’s population die from the horsemen.
- Fifth Seal (Rev. 6:9-11): The souls of those who where martyred become impatient from waiting for their vengeance and ask God how much longer they will have to wait.
- Sixth Seal (Rev. 6:12-17): The sun blackens, the moon reddens, and stars fall from the sky. The sky is described as having been “receded like a scroll, rolling up.” The people of earth seek refuge in the caves of mountains and rocks to hide away from the wrath of the Lamb (the Day of Wrath).
- Seventh Seal (Rev. 8:1-6): Silence in Heaven, seven angels are given seven trumpets. Another angel is with a golden censure, sets it on fire, and hurls it to the Earth, causing thunders, flashes of lightning, rumblings, and an earthquake.
 Seven trumpets
The sounding of the trumpets in Chapter 8 of Revelation, breaks the silence following the previous cycle of visions. Each trumpet blast brings with it a plague of a more disastrous nature than the one before it. The trumpet is used to build anticipation and tells the reader that an alert, announcement, or warning is about to take place.
- After the first trumpet sounds: Hail, fire, and blood fall upon the earth, burning one-third of the earth, trees, and grass. This is a plague similar to the hailstorm described in the Book of Exodus, with the exception of the blood.
- Following the second trumpet blast: Something like a burning mountain plummets into the sea, turning one-third of the sea into blood, sinking one-third of the ships, and killing one-third of all the fish. Some Christian apologists believe this to possibly be an impact event of one of the Near-Earth objects.
- At the sound of the third trumpet: A star called Wormwood falls onto the Earth poisoning the freshwater sources such as streams and rivers.
- Following the fourth trumpet: Sun, stars and moon are darkened by one-third.
- After the fifth trumpet blows: John writes that he saw “a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth,” who happens to hold “the key to the shaft of the Abyss”, and releases Plague of indestructible locusts. The locusts are given instructions not to harm any plant or animal life, except for humans who did not have “the seal of God on their foreheads” (Rev. 9:1-4) who were first mentioned in chapter 7 of Revelations. John describes the locusts as having faces that resembled human faces, hair like women’s hair, breast plates made of iron, and “the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle” (Rev. 9:7-9). The victims of the locusts will be tortured for five months but prevented from dying. “During those days men will seek death, but will not find it; they will long to die but death will elude them” (Rev. 9:5-6).
- At the sound of the sixth trumpet (Rev. 9:13-19): God has four angels who are held in the Euphrates river released (Rev. 9:14). These four angels kill off one-third of the human race (Rev. 9:15), but how they do this is through 200 million “mounted troops” (Rev. 9:16), whose horses are able to breath out three plagues of “fire, smoke, and sulfur” (Rev. 9:18).
- At the sound of the seventh trumpet (last trumpet), mentioned in chapter 11, verses 15-19, John writes that “loud voices in heaven” said “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever.” Then John mentions about the God’s in temple in heaven containing the “ark of his covenant” at the end of the chapter. The following chapter, chapter 12, mentions a woman giving birth to a son “who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter”. Satan tries to kill her and her son but God stops him. Later, Michael and his angels battle Satan and his angels in heaven. Satan loses the battle and is exiled to earth. Here, it is mentioned, that Satan wages war with the rest of the offspring of the woman who was mentioned earlier.
The first six trumpets are used to serve as a wake up call to the sinners on Earth and a call to repentance. The seventh trumpet does not bring a plague with it. It is sounded as glory is being given to God and His kingdom is announced.
 Seven thunders
- Revelation 10:3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
- Revelation 10:4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
- Revelation 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
- Revelation 10:10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
The seven thunders in Revelation 10 are a mystery of God until the seventh angel actually sounds.
 Seven vial (bowl) judgments
The seven Vial/Bowl judgments are similar in nature to the Trumpet judgments, but far more serious for there will be no warning when they come. In addition, there are three key differences between the Trumpet judgments and the Vial/Bowl judgments: firstly, the Trumpet judgments are plagues upon nature, while the Vial/Bowl judgments are direct assaults against humanity. Secondly, the Trumpet judgments are partial (namely, they affect one third of what they plague) while the Vial/Bowl judgments will destroy or harm all of what they assault. Lastly, the Trumpet judgments offer a possibility of redemption, while the Vial judgments do not; the Vial judgments are a literal assault on those who have taken the mark of the Beast, and those who take it are irredeemable.
- Noisome and grievous sores (possibly boils or carbuncles) on the worshipers of the Beast. These sores only affect those bearing the Mark of the Beast, who worship his image.
- Sea turns to blood.
- Rivers turn to blood.
- Sun burns with intense heat and scorches people.
- The kingdom of the beast is plunged into darkness. (Revelations 16:11)
- The Euphrates River dries up to facilitate the crossing of the armies from the east, on their way to Israel for the battle of Armageddon.)
- Worldwide earthquake leveling every mountain into the sea followed by huge hailstones and lightning. The Earth’s geography and topography will be altered forever, as every mountain and hill will be leveled, and every island will either move or disappear. The earthquakes are accompanied by 100-lb hailstones.)
Some Christians[who?] believe that the seals and trumpets will occur during the first half of the tribulation. The vial judgments will occur during the second half, as the first one refers to those with the mark of the beast. The mark will not be implemented until the Antichrist appears to die, come back to life, and then defiles the Temple; and this will happen at precisely the mid-point of the tribulation. Thus, the vial judgments will be more severe, and will last longer than any of the previous ones.
Others[who?] argue that the seals generally cover man’s history from after the first coming of Christ up to the End time (although several seem to go well into this period), with the trumpets generally covering the Tribulation, and the Bowls reserved for the Wrath of God period — preceding the Millennium
