New Book on Daniel and Reveleation

 

Summary of each chapter of Revelation:

Revelation chapter 1 begins with the introduction of the book, a blessing pronounced on those the read and hear the words of the book, the setting of John's are described and the stated purpose of the message is given.  The vision occurs on the island of Patmos, on the Lord's day.  
John is given this message from the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, and he is told to send it to the senven churches of Asia.
John then sees a most impressive vision of Jesus Christ in the midst of seven golden candlesticks, which causes John to fall at His feet as dead.  He is told that the seven golden candlestick represent the seven churches, and that the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches.  Much about the nature and divinity of Christ is revealed in this chapter.

Revelation chapter 2 and 3 describe the specific messages given to each of the seven churches: unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.  
Each church receives a commendation, and each (except two) receive a reproof.  Besides being messages to these literal churches, these messages also give profound insight regarding and counsel to the periods of church history that the churches represent, from apostolic times until the second coming of Jesus.

Revelation chapter 4 and 5 give a picture of the heavenly throne room, with the emerald rainbow encircled throne, twenty-four elders, four living creatures, each with six wings (the first like a lion, the second like a calf, the third like a man, and the fourth like an eagle), a book sealed with seven seals, and a sacrificial lamb who was earned the right to open the seven seals.

Revelation chapter 6 describes what happens when each of the seals from chapter five are opened.  With the opening of the first seal there appears a white horse, the rider of which has a bow and a crown.  When the second seal is opened a red horse appears with a rider having a sword who takes peace from the earth.  The third seal reveals a rider on a black horse with a pair of balances in his hand.  As the fourth seal is opened, a pale horse appears, the name of his rider - death and hell. When the fifth seal is opened, the souls beneath the altar cry for justice.  The opening of the sixth seal causes a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth.  The opening of the seventh seal does not occurs until chapter eight.

Revelation chapter 7 is an interlude or parenthetical statement which describes the 144,000 which have received the seal of God.  

Revelation chapter 8 completes the opening of the last (seventh) seal, and then begins to describe the events that occurs with the sounding of the seven trumpets.  The first four of the trumpets are described in chapter eight.

Revelation chapter 9 describes the final three of the seven trumpets, which are also called the three woes.  Bizzare creatures with tails like scorpions, are described, who have a king named Abbadon or Appolyon.

In Revelation chapter 10 John sees an angel with one foot on the land, and one on the sea, who has a little book open in His hand.  John hears the seven thunders, and is told to eat the little book which would be sweet as honey in his mouth, but would make his belly biter.  Then he is told that he must prophecy again.

Revelation chapter 11 gives the story of the two witnesses, which are the two olive trees, or two candlesticks which stand before the God of the earth.  They prophecy for three and a half days, are killled, and then resurrected.  

Revelation chapter 12
describes more history of this world in one chapter, than any other in the Bible.  The events from the fall of Satan from heaven prior to the creation of this earth to events immediately prior to the second coming of Christ are revealed.  The great red dragon called the Devil and Satan tries to devour the pure woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet.  She flees into the wilderness for 1260 days.  

Revelation chapter 13 introduces a beast that rises out of the sea, and has seven heads and then horns, with a mouth like a lion, feet like a bear, and a body like a leopard.  He reigns for forty-two months (1260 days), and receives a deadly wound which is healed, causing all the world to worship him.  Another beast arises out of the earth, with horns like a lamb, which eventually begins to speak as a dragon.  The earth beast creates an image to the sea beast and causes the whole earth to worship the sea beast and to receive the mark of the beast.
The most famous (or infamous) number in all of Scripture, maybe even in all the world, is defined: the number of the beast - 666.

Revelation chapter 14 begins with additional information about the 144,000, which leads into the famous three angel's messages. The first angel's message is an announcement of the gospel, the commencement of the judgement and a call to worship the creator of the universe.  The second angel announces the fall of Babylon.  Finally, the third angel warns, in most severe terms, not to receive the mark of the beast, nor to worship the beast or his image.  The chapter concludes with a partial description of some of the punishments for those who do, and the harvest of the clusters of the vine of the earth.

Revelation chapter 15 introduces the preparations the seven angels having the seven vials, to pour out, on the earth, the seven last plagues.

Revelation chapter 16 enumerates the devastation that occurs as each of the seven last plagues are poured upon the earth.  The first causes grievous sores upon those who have the mark of the beast.  In the second, the sea is turned to blood and every living thing in the sea dies.  The third plague causes the fresh water to turn to blood.  In the fourth, men are scorched with the heat of the sun.  The fifth brings darkness on the seat of the beast - darkness that is painful.  "The sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared."  The seven angel pours his vial in the air and a voice announces, "It is done."  The worst earthquake of all history occurs, and hail stones fall on the earth, weighing sixty pounds each.

In Revelation chapter 17 John sees a harlot woman sitting on a scarlet beast with seven heads and ten horns.  Her name is: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.  Seven kings are brought to view - five fallen, one who is, and one who is not yet come.  Then an eighth appears who is not counted among the seven, and who will go into perdition.  These kings unite and give their power and strength unto the beast, and make war with the Lamb.  But the promise is that the Lamb will overcome them.  However, they eventually hate the whore and eat her flesh and burn her with fire.  The whore is "is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth."

Revelation chapter 18
outlines the plagues that will fall on Babylon, after a call is given (by a fourth angel) for God's people to come out of Babylon that they be not partakers of her sins nor receive her plagues.  The chapter also outlines how Babylon is connected to every aspect of the economy at the end of time, and the merchant of the earth weep and wail when they see her destruction.  

Revelation chapter 19 portrays the second coming with Jesus riding on a white horse with a sharp two-edged sword coming out of His mouth.   The wicked are slain, and the fowls feast on their flesh.  

Revelation chapter 20 explains the one thousand years, or millennium, in which the wicked are all dead on the earth, the righteous have all been taken to heaven at the second coming and Satan and his angels are stuck on the earth with nothing to do but think about the ruin they have caused.  The righteous participate in the executive judgement, which will execute final sentence on the wicked (verse 4).  At the end of the millennium, the wicked dead are raised to life to receive their final sentence.  The New Jerusalem comes down from God out of heaven, and the wicked prepare to take it by force.  Once they march on the city, the final battle of the universe is fought - Gog and Magog.  Fire comes down from God out of heaven and devours the wicked and Satan and his angels.  

Then in Revelation chapter 21, God creates the earth anew, and wipes away all tears, forever.  The decryption of the New Jerusalem follows, with its twelve gates made of twelve pearls, its streets of gold, and its twelve foundations, each of a different precious stone.  Sin and sinners are no more and Eden is restored.

Revelation chapter 22, continues the decryption of heaven, including the tree of life, its twelve different fruits, each in a different month.  John is told not to seal up this prophecy for the time is at hand.  Jesus promises that He is coming quickly, and pronounces a blessing on those that do his commandments that they may have a right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
