THE BOOK OF REVELATION.   ORDERED CHRONOLOGICALLY
CHAPTER 1
INTRODUCTION 1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
ADVICE TO THE LEADERS OF THE CHURCH THROUGHOUT ALL AGES 4 JOHN to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne…
JOHN HAS A PRELIMINARY VISION OF HEAVEN    (NOT PROPHESY)
CHAPTER 4
A VISION OF HEAVEN 1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
ALL GOD'S CREATION'S WORSHIPPING HIM IN HEAVEN 2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. (D&C 77:1) DANIEL ALSO IS SHOWN FOUR BEASTS AT THE BEGINNING OF HIS VISION.  SEE DAN…
24 ELDERS 4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 5 Q. What are we to understand by the four and twenty elders, spoken of by John?                A. We are to understand that these elders whom John saw, were elders who had been faithful in the work of the ministry and were dead; who belonged to the seven churches, and were then in the paradise of God.
5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
FOUR BEASTS 6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. 1 Q. What is the sea of glass spoken of by John, 4th chapter, and 6th verse of the Revelation?                  A. It is the earth, in its sanctified, immortal, and eternal state.
7 Eyes and 7 horns on beasts are seven Spirits or prophets (likely dispensational heads) sent to earth by God.  (See v. 6)
7 And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. 2 Q. What are we to understand by the four beasts, spoken of in the same verse?
4 BEASTS IN REVELATION
(represent different types of God's animal creations both on earth and in heaven.  All worshipping God. Compare to animals created on 6th day.   Gen 1:24,30)

1- Lion (beasts)
2- Calf (cattle)
3- Face like Man
4- Flying Eagle (foul)
BEAST IN DANIEL
(represent different earthly kingdoms.  I.e. Babylon, Persia, Grecia and Roman Empires)
1- Lion w/ Eagle Wings
2- Bear
3- Leopard
4- Beast w/ Horns
A. They are figurative expressions, used by the Revelator, John, in describing heaven, the paradise of God, the happiness of man, and of beasts, and of creeping things, and of the fowls of the air; that which is spiritual being in the likeness of that which is temporal; and that which is temporal in the likeness of that which is spiritual; the spirit of man in the likeness of his person, as also the spirit of the beast, and every other creature which God has created.
3 Q. Are the four beasts limited to individual beasts, or do they represent classes or orders?
A. They are limited to four individual beasts, which were shown to John, to represent the glory of the classes of beings in their destined order or sphere of creation, in the enjoyment of their eternal felicity.
WINGS AND EYES 8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. 4 Q. What are we to understand by the eyes and wings, which the beasts had?  A. Their eyes are a representation of light and knowledge, that is, they are full of knowledge; and their wings are a representation of power, to move, to act, etc.
9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,
10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
CHAPTER 5
BOOK WITH SEVEN SEALS 1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 6 Q. What are we to understand by the book which John saw, which was sealed on the back with seven seals?
A. We are to understand that it contains the revealed will, mysteries, and the works of God; the hidden things of his economy concerning this earth during the seven thousand years of its continuance, or its temporal existence.
7 Q. What are we to understand by the seven seals with which it was sealed?
A. We are to understand that the first seal contains the things of the first thousand years, and the second also of the second thousand years, and so on until the seventh.
2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
CHRIST OPENS AND REVEALS THE WORKS OF MAN FROM THE BOOK OF LIFE 5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. 12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.
SHORT GENERAL RECAP OF THE FIRST 4,000 YEARS OF HISTORY.       (JUDGMENT GIVEN TO MAN AND HIS ARMIES)
These verses, are likely given to show how the wicked rule of man and his armies (unto whom God has committed judgment for this 6,000 year probationary time period- likened unto four horses) contrasts with how his righteous rularship will be when he comes to regain the authority, kingship and judgment which is now rightfully his as a result of his sacrifice.   (see white horse in Rev. 19:11-14)
CHAPTER 6
(Zech. 1:8-10)
8 I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle trees that were in the bottom; and behind him were there red horses, speckled, and white.
9 Then said I, O my lord, what are these? And the angel that talked with me said unto me, I will show thee what these be.
10 And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and said,
These are they whom the LORD hath sent to walk to and fro through the earth.

(Zech. 6:1)
1 And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass.
2 In the first chariot were
red horses; and in the second chariot black horses;
3 And in the third chariot
white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled and bay horses.
4 Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord?
5 And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth.
6 The
black horses which are therein go forth into the north country; and the white go forth after them; and the grisle
7 And the bay
went forth, and sought to go that they might walk to and fro through the earth: and he said, Get you hence, walk to and fro through the earth. So they walked to and fro through the earth.

HORSES ARE USSUALLY SYMBOLIC OF WAR & AMRIES
(Isa. 43:17)
17 Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power;
HORSES = ARMIES OF THE EARTH 1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 7 Q. What are we to understand by the seven seals with which it was sealed?      A. We are to understand that the first seal contains the things of the first thousand years, and the second also of the second thousand years, and so on until the seventh.
BOW, SWORD, BALANCES & DEATH = JUDGMENT & PUNISHMENT ARE COMMITTED TO MAN IN THIS WORLD 2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
OUTLINE OF HORSES
White Horse = Rider with bow & crown.  Goes forth to conquer.

Red Horse = Rider with sword, takes peace from earth.

Black Horse = Rider with pair of balances, dictates cost of bread.

Pale Horse = Rider's name is death. Hell follows after him to kill 1/4 part of the earth with war, hunger and beasts (kingdoms) of earth.
3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
OUTLINE OFZECH. HORSES
Red Horses , Black Horses ,  White Horses , &  Grissled & Bay Horses 
= Go forth into the north countries (likely the ten tribes & scattered Israel.
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.
DURING FIFTH THOUSAND YEARS, ISRAEL IS SCATTERED AND THE CHURCH IS PERSECUTED 9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
BEGINNING OF PROPHESY IN BOOK OF REVELATION.  PICKS UP WHERE NEPHI AND MORMON LEAVE OFF.
John begins now to describe the physical (geological / catastrophic) events of the last days.  After this description he will go back and give a political / social description of the same time period (rise of the beast).  This first set of destructions about to be discussed bring about the end of the time of the Gentiles.  It is the first in the couplet of two catastrophic time periods which have always occurred between dispensations every 700 or 1000 years.  (see geology paper).   These events occur after the e
SIXTH SEAL OPENED AT THE END OF THE 6,000 YEARS WITH THE FIRST "SHORT" PERIOD OF GLOBAL DESTRUCTIONS
chapter 6
GREAT EARTHQUAKE, DARKNESS, MOON TO BLOOD 12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
GREAT METEOR SHOWER 13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
CHAPTER 16
CONTINENTS START TO MOVE BACK TOGETHER 14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
GOSPEL PREACHED IN ALL WORLD, RIGHTEOUS GATHERED AND SEALED UP, DURING SHORT PERIOD OF RELETIVE PEACE.
CHAPTER 7
(1/2 HOUR OF PEACE)  PERIOD OF GEOLOGIC STABILITY BETWEEN EVENTS.  MASSIVE PERIOD OF CONVERSION. 1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. 8 Q. What are we to understand by the four angels, spoken of in the 7th chapter and 1st verse of Revelation?
A. We are to understand that they are four angels sent forth from God, to whom is given power over the four parts of the earth, to save life and to destroy; these are they who have the everlasting gospel to commit to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people; having power to shut up the heavens, to seal up unto life, or to cast down to the regions of darkness.
Four angels (resurrected beings?) which have sealing power much like Nepi  and the two prophets in Jerusalem during the battle of Armageddon will.  (see 3 Ne. 4??) 
144,000 sealed and sent out to preach the gospel.
FOUR ANGELS WITH SEALING POWER 2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, 9 Q. What are we to understand by the angel ascending from the east, Revelation 7th chapter and 2nd verse?
A. We are to understand that the angel ascending from the east is he to whom is given the seal of the living God over the twelve tribes of Israel; wherefore, he crieth unto the four angels having the everlasting gospel, saying: Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And, if you will receive it, this is Elias which was to come to gather together the tribes of Israel and restore all things.
10 Q. What time are the things spoken of in this chapter to be accomplished? (End of the 6000 years)
A. They are to be accomplished in the sixth thousand years, or the opening of the sixth seal.
144,000 HIGH PRIESTS SEALED UP TO PREACH 3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. 11 Q. What are we to understand by sealing the one hundred and forty-four thousand, out of all the tribes of Israel—twelve thousand out of every tribe?
5 Of [every tribe] were sealed twelve thousand. A. We are to understand that those who are sealed are high priests, ordained unto the holy order of God, to administer the everlasting gospel; for they are they who are ordained out of every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, by the angels to whom is given power over the nations of the earth, to bring as many as will come to the church of the Firstborn.
9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
OPENING OF THE SEVENTH THOUSAND YEARS;  THE FINAL DESTRUCTION OF THE WICKED
CHAPTER 8
1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
CHAPTER 15
1/2 HOUR LIKELY REPRESENTS A 20-60 YEAR TIME PERIOD
FINAL PERIOD OF GLOBAL CATASTROPHE 2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. 1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.
2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 1 Q. What is the sea of glass spoken of by John, 4th chapter, and 6th verse of the Revelation?                                                         A. It is the earth, in its sanctified, immortal, and eternal state.
3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
5 And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:
6 And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.
7 And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.
8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. 12 Q. What are we to understand by the sounding of the trumpets, mentioned in the 8th chapter of Revelation?
A. We are to understand that as God made the world in six days, and on the seventh day he finished his work, and sanctified it, and also formed man out of the dust of the earth, even so, in the beginning of the seventh thousand years will the Lord God sanctify the earth, and complete the salvation of man, and judge all things, and shall redeem all things, except that which he hath not put into his power, when he shall have sealed all things, unto the end of all things; and the sounding of the trumpets of the seven angels are the preparing and finishing of his work, in the beginning of the seventh thousand years—the preparing of the way before the time of his coming.
CHAPTER 16
1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.
FIRST ANGEL & DESTRUCTIONS 7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. 2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
SECOND ANGEL & DESTRUCTIONS 8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed. 13 Q. When are the things to be accomplished, which are written in the 9th chapter of Revelation?
THIRD ANGEL & DESTRUCTIONS 10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. A. They are to be accomplished after the opening of the seventh seal, before the coming of Christ.
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.
6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
FOURTH ANGEL & DESTRUCTIONS 12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. 8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.                9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitors of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
CHAPTER 9
D&C  29:18 - 21
18  Wherefore, I the Lord God will
send forth flies upon the face of the earth, which shall take hold of the inhabitants thereof, and shall eat their flesh, and shall cause maggots to come in upon them;
19  And
their tongues shall be stayed that they shall not utter against me; and their flesh shall fall from off their bones, and their eyes from their sockets;
20  And it shall come to pass that the beasts of the forest and the fowls of the air shall devour them up.
21  And the great and abominable church, which is the whore of all the earth, shall be cast down by devouring fire

FIFTH ANGEL & DESTRUCTIONS 1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
SUN AND MOON ARE DARKENED 2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
LIKELY A DESCRIPTION OF THE ARMY WHICH IS HERE BEING ASSEMBLED FOR THE FINAL BATTLE (ARMAGEDDON) 7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
JUST LIKE THE  BEAST, THESE LOCUSTS ALSO HAVE:
- crowns of gold
- faces of men
- teeth of lions
- wings (sounding like horses)
8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
Abaddon & Apallyon mean "the destroyer" ( satan.)
END OF FIRST WOE 12 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON
STILL CHAP 8 CHAPTER 16
Zech Chap 1

18 ¶ Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.
19 And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.
20 And the LORD showed me four carpenters.
21 Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.
SIXTH ANGEL & DESTRUCTIONS 13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 12 And 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.
14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. 14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
ARMY OF 200 MILLION ASSEMBLES TO FIGHT ISRAEL 16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand (200,000,000): and I heard the number of them. 15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. 16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. [GO FORWARD TO "BACKTRACK ON ARMAGEDDON"  FOR MORE ON FINAL BATTLE FOR JERUSALEM]
19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.
Frogs in verse 13 are likely an allusion to the plague of frogs in Egypt by Moses.  This plague was the last one to be mimicked by Pharoes false priests.  Thus the three unclean spirits are likely false miracles done by false prophet who aids the beast (nation) under the direction of the dragon (devil)

20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
CHAPTER 10
JOHN'S MISSION 1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: D&C 77
JOHN THE BELOVED HAS A SPECIAL MISION TO GATHER THE LAST OF ISRAEL  (likely completed after Christ appears to jews;  see D&C 133: ??) 2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, 14 Q. What are we to understand by the little book which was eaten by John, as mentioned in the 10th chapter of Revelation?
  A. We are to understand that it was a mission, and an ordinance, for him to gather the tribes of Israel; behold, this is Elias, who, as it is written, must come and restore all things.
3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
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.
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
TIME NO LONGER 6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: still CHAPTER 16
SEVENTH ANGEL (Part 1) 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. 17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
JOHN'S MISSION CONTINUED 8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
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.
11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
SHORT BACKTRACK ON ARMAGEDDON
CHAPTER 11
(Zech. 4:1)
1 And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep,
2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:
3
And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.

11 ¶ Then answered I, and said unto him,
What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?
12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?
13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
14 Then said he,
These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.
1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two (42) months. D&C 77
ACCOUNT OF TWO WITNESSES (PROPHETS) WITH SEALING POWER WHO WILL PROTECT JERUSALEM FROM THE ARMIES OF THE EARTH / BEAST. 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days (3.5 yrs), clothed in sackcloth. 15 Q. What is to be understood by the two witnesses, in the eleventh chapter of Revelation?
4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. A. They are two prophets that are to be raised up to the Jewish nation in the last days, at the time of the restoration, and to prophesy to the Jews after they are gathered and have built the city of Jerusalem in the land of their fathers.
5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half (3.5 days), and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. still CHAPTER 16
GREAT EARTHQUAKE SPLITS THE MOUNT IN JERUSALEM AS THE CONTINENTS FINISH GOING BACK TOGETHER 13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.   18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.  
D&C 133:18 - 33

18  When the Lamb shall stand upon Mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty–four thousand, having his Father's name written on their foreheads.
19  Wherefore, prepare ye for the coming of the Bridegroom; go ye, go ye out to meet him.
20  For behold, he shall
stand upon the mount of Olivet, and upon the mighty ocean, even the great deep, and upon the islands of the sea, and upon the land of Zion.
21  And he shall utter his voice out of Zion, and he shall speak from Jerusalem, and his voice shall be heard among all people;
22  And it shall be a voice as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder, which shall break down the mountains, and the valleys shall not be found.



23  He shall command the great deep, and it shall be driven back into the north countries,
and the islands shall become one land;
24  And the land of Jerusalem and the land of Zion shall be turned back into their own place,
and the earth shall be like as it was in the days before it was divided.
25  And the Lord, even the Savior, shall stand in the midst of his people, and shall reign over all flesh.
26  And they who are in the north countries shall come in remembrance before the Lord; and their prophets shall hear his voice, and shall no longer stay themselves; and they shall smite the rocks, and the ice shall flow down at their presence.
27  And an highway shall be cast up in the midst of the great deep.
28  Their enemies shall become a prey unto them,
29  And in the barren deserts there shall come forth pools of living water; and the parched ground shall no longer be a thirsty land.
30  And they shall bring forth their rich treasures unto the children of Ephraim, my servants.
31  And the boundaries of the everlasting hills shall tremble at their presence.
32  And there shall they fall down and be crowned with glory, even in Zion, by the hands of the servants of the Lord, even the children of Ephraim.
33  And they shall be filled with songs of everlasting joy.

  19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.  
    20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.  
Zech 14:1-16

1  BEHOLD, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
2  For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3  Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.


4  ¶ And his feet shall stand in that day
upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

Zech 13"6
6  And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands?  Then he shall answer, Those with which I was
wounded in the house of my friends.

5  And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.
6  And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:
7  But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
8  And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
9  And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
10  All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses.
11  And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
12  ¶ And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
13  And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbor.
14  And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.
15  And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.
16  And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
D&C  45:47 - 59

47  Then shall the arm of the Lord fall upon the nations.
48  And then shall the
Lord set his foot upon this mount, and it shall cleave in twain, and the earth shall tremble, and reel to and fro, and the heavens also shall shake.
49  And the Lord shall utter his voice, and all the ends of the earth shall hear it; and the nations of the earth shall mourn, and they that have laughed shall see their folly.



50  And calamity shall cover the mocker, and the scorner shall be consumed; and they that have watched for iniquity shall be hewn down and cast into the fire.
51  And then shall the Jews look upon me and say: What are these wounds in thine hands and in thy feet?
52  Then shall they know that I am the Lord; for I will say unto them:
These wounds are the wounds with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.  I am he who was lifted up.  I am Jesus that was crucified.  I am the Son of God.
53  And then shall they weep because of their iniquities; then shall they lament because they persecuted their king.
54  And then shall the heathen nations be redeemed, and they that knew no law shall have part in the first resurrection; and it shall be tolerable for them.
55  And Satan shall be bound, that he shall have no place in the hearts of the children of men.
56  And at that day, when I shall come in my glory, shall the parable be fulfilled which I spake concerning the ten virgins.
57  For they that are wise and have received the truth, and have taken the Holy Spirit for their guide, and have not been deceived—verily I say unto you, they shall not be hewn down and cast into the fire, but shall abide the day.
58  And the earth shall be given unto them for an inheritance; and they shall multiply and wax strong, and their children shall grow up without sin unto salvation.
59  For the Lord shall be in their midst, and his glory shall be upon them, and he will be their king and their lawgiver.
AT THE TIME THE TWO WITNESSES ARE RESURRECTED AND THE EARTHQUAKE HITS, CHRIST WILL APPEAR TO THE JEWS AS THE MOUNT OF OLIVES SPLITS IN TWO
OUTLINE OF THREE WO'S.

1st Woe = first five angels and destructions.  (mostly geologic)

2nd Woe = sixth angel, and first part of seventh angel's destructions.  Battle of Amageddon, and works of the two prophets in Jerusalem.  biggest earthquake ever as continents finish going back together.

3rd Woe = seventh angel anounces "the kingdoms of this world have become Christs".  The judgement & resurrection occur.  There is a final earthquake & great hail.
End SECOND WOE 14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
SEVENTH ANGEL (Part 2) 15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. Rev.  CHAPTER 16
End THIRD WOE?   (GREAT METEORITE SHOWER) 19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail. 21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great. (weigh 22-70 lbs each)
HUGE BACKTRACK:  At this point John goes back and starts over again, this time explaining the political and social events of the last days.  He begins with the apostasy and rise of the beast which starts where Nephi's vision left off. 
WAR IN HEAVEN, START OF CHURCH, THE GREAT APOSTASY
CHAPTER 12 JST Rev. 12:1
1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 1  And there appeared a great sign in heaven, in the likeness of things on the earth; a woman (THE CHURCH / ISRAEL) clothed with the sun (CELESTIAL LAW), and the moon under her feet (TELESTIAL MAN), and upon her head a crown of twelve stars (RULED BY TWELVE SERVANTS).
2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 2  And the woman being with child, cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3  And she brought forth a man child (THE POLITICAL KINGDOM OF GOD), who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron (word of God); and her child was caught up unto God and his throne.
Dragon has seven heads and ten horns  just like the Beast. (Except the Beast has 10 crowns and the dragon has 7)
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4  And there appeared another sign in heaven; and behold, a great red dragon (DEVIL / HIS KINGDOM), having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven (PREMORTAL CHILDREN OF GOD), and did cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman which was delivered, ready to devour her child after it was born.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. (D&C 5:14)
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore (1,260) days. 5  And the woman fled into the wilderness (SCATTERING / SPIRIT WORLD), where she had a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore years (1260 YEARS ). 14 And to none else will I grant this power, to receive this same testimony among this generation, in this the beginning of the rising up and the coming forth of my church out of the wilderness—clear as the moon, and fair as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners.
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 6  And there was war in heaven; Michael (ADAM) and his angels fought against the dragon (SATAN); and the dragon and his angels fought against Michael; (D&C 33:5)
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 7  And the dragon prevailed not against Michael, neither the child, nor the woman which was the church of God, who had been delivered of her pains, and brought forth the kingdom of our God and his Christ. 5 And verily, verily, I say unto you, that this church have I established and called forth out of the wilderness.        6 And even so will I gather mine elect from the four quarters of the earth, even as many as will believe in me, and hearken unto my voice.
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. 8  Neither was there place found in heaven for the great dragon, who was cast out; that old serpent called the devil, and also called 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. 9  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;                              10  For the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. (D&C 86:2)
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. 11  For they have overcome him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; for they loved not their own lives, but kept the testimony even unto death. 2 Behold, verily I say, the field was the world, and the apostles were the sowers of the seed;
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. Therefore, rejoice O heavens, and ye that dwell in them.                                             12  And after these things I heard another voice saying, Woe to the inhabiters of the earth, yea, and they who dwell upon the islands of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. 3 And after they have fallen asleep the great persecutor of the church, the apostate, the whore, even Babylon, that maketh all nations to drink of her cup, in whose hearts the enemy, even Satan, sitteth to reign—behold he soweth the tares; wherefore, the tares choke the wheat and drive the church into the wilderness.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. 13  For 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. 14  Therefore, to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might flee into the wilderness (SPIRIT WORLD), into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. 15  And the serpent casteth out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 16  And the earth helpeth the woman, and the earth openeth her mouth, and swalloweth up the flood which the dragon casteth out of his mouth.
17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. 17  Therefore, the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed (SCATTERED ISRAEL), which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
RISING OF THE GREAT LAST BEAST (GREAT & ABOMINABLE CHURCH / CHURCH OF THE DEVIL)
CHAPTER 13
BEAST RISES OUT OF SEA 1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
SAND OF THE SEA = inhabitants of the earth (as numerous as sands of the sea)
SEA = people & nations of the earth (see rev ?:?)
BEAST = a political kingdom or nation (see TPJS p. ??)
DRAGON = devil gives this beast (political kingdom) its power.

7 HEADS = 7 mountains (lands ?) upon which the
woman sitteth  (symbol of all the earth)
10 HORNS W/ CROWNS = ten kings (rulars) which receive power (kingdoms?) with the beast   BUT  later hate her and make her desolate
1ST 4 BEASTS IN REVELATION
(repent glory of differing classes of exaltation.  I.e. celestial, terrestrial, telestial, etc..)

- SHE IS LIKELY THE WOMAN WHO SITS UPON THE SCARLET COLORED BEAST WITH (BEAST 1)



2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
CHAPTER 17
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the … beast, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
EXPLANATION OF BEAST = 8 The beast  that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
MOUNTAINS = LANDS / REGIONS? 9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
OUTLINE OF DANIEL'S BEASTS

Four beast. 
Beast 1 = Lion w/ eagle wings
Beast 2 = Bear devouring flesh
Beast 3 = Leapard w/ wings & 4 heads
Beast 4 = Strange Beast
- fourth is fourth kindom that is different
- has
ten horns which are ten kings
- comes up from among them another horn (king) that subdues or plucks up t
he three horns or kings before him.
- It is he that persecutes the saints and destroys isreal until adam comes and judges.

Ram has two horns which are Media and Persia
- one is higher than the other
- a "he" or rough goat comes who is the king of Grecia who has a notable horn between his eyes who is the first great king. (Alexander)
- he (this goat, grecia by alexander) comes to the river and smashes media and persia.
- when the horn (alexander) is strong, he breaks and
four kingdoms form from his one.
- out of one of these four kingdoms raises a little horn who is fierce ,  and will destroy israel.  (very evil).  likely antiochus or a roman.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
DRAGON (SATAN) GIVES THE BEAST ITS POWER 4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
BLASPHEMIES FOR 42 MONTHS 5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
NOTES:
- You can not read or understand revelation without realizing that it is a continuation of both Daniel and Nephi's visions.
- Thus we have Nephi's whore (great & abominable church, riding upon Daniels, beasts (totalitarian world empires)  looking at it in light of the previous visions makes it pretty clear.   In the times before Christ, the "known" world (and more especially the world that isreal belonged to)  was ruled and governed by ambitious empirialistic empires.  After the time of Christ the "known" world was ruled and governed by an apostate catholic / eastern orthodox church.  You may note that neither of these organizations were inherantly evil, and in fact did a lot of good. (both the pre-Christ empires in helping to civilize and bring technilogical and cultural advantages and the catholic / orthodox church in bringing the world christian truths)  BUT, the fact is, that at diferent times, these organizations stepped over thier bounds and began to excersize intense unrightous dominion, "binding down, torturing and killing the saints of God".  (the prophets!)    Thus the book of Revelation tells us that both of these types of political & religous entaties will unite in the future to form one last evil world empire, the likes of which have never been seen.  This empire or republic will undoubtedly at first do much good in the world just as both Daniel's ancient empires, and the catholic church did,  but the corrupting influence of power will undoubtedly allow satan to weild influence of this organization until it, like the others, becomes an instrament of tyranny and murder.  At this point it will bind and murder the true saints of God.  This intense and unparalleled persecution will, as it has in the past, effectively separate the wheat from the tears in preparation for the final harvest of the earth.  And thus pave the way for the destruction of the wicked and the opening of Christ's melinial reign.


- All of this goes to reinforce the principle that MAN CANNOT RULE HIMSELF without Gods constant guidence and rularship.  Everytime God has placed judgement and power in the hands of man, (Israel, his Church or others) they have abused that power.  In every instance, his "bride" or those of his royal birthright and governing class have played the "whore".  They have forsaken Gods commandments, abused thier high station becoming effectively "the great and abominable church", "the whore of all the earth".  Thus the nation of Israel itself, which was supposed to be "God's elect", apostacized and became the whore or great abominable church, killing God's prophets and Christ himself.  Likewise Christ's church which he organized while on earth, also apostasized and became catholic / eastern orthodox church which also played  the whore or great and abominable church, killing Gods prophets and many of "the peacable followers of Christ".
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
SECOND BEAST IS A FALSE CHRIST OR GOSPEL 11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

CHAPTER 14
THE SAINTS AND SEALED ISRAEL STAND ON MT. ZION 1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.

THIS IS AFTER THE SEALING 144,000 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.
5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
TYRANNY 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
SUMMERY OF EVENTS OF THE BEAST.

- was, and is not, and shall acend out of the pit and go into perdition.
- rises out of the sea
- has ten horns (kings that will rule this nation for their portion)
- has seven heads (mtns. upon which it sits)
- One of his heads (mountains upon which it sits) is wounded to death, but it is healed, and the world wonders after it.
- makes war with and overcomes the saints for a time.

-another beast comes out of ocean with two horns like a lamb, that excesizes all the power of the first beast ... and causes all to worship the first beast.
- makes people of earth make a graven image of the first beast which he then causes to speak and do miracles.  All who will not worship this graven image/ false God are put to death.

[this may be an allusion to king nebecanezer making his graven image, and forcing all to worship it]

- second beast gives all the mark and controls the market so only those with mark and buy & sell.

- then we are told that the whore sits or rides upon the beast.


DIFERENCE BETWEEN BEAST AND IMAGE OF THE BEAST.
- beast is the actual kingdom but the image of it, is the symbol or (philosophy/ political system?) of the kingdom?

19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred (1,600) furlongs.
GREAT DESTRUCTIONS CHAPTER 15 & 16 MOVED, CHAPTER 17 SHOULD STILL FALL DIRECTLY AFTER
DESTRUCTION OF THE WHORE, BABYLON & THE BEAST.
CHAPTER 17
THE GREAT WHORE 1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. CHAPTER 17
THE WHORE RIDES UPON THE BEAST 3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. 10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18  And the woman which thou sawest is the great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
CHAPTER 18
1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
RIGHTEOUS CALLED OUT OF BABYLON 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
MORE DESCRIPTION OF HER SINS…
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
BABYLON WILL BE DESTROYED 21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. GO TO NEXT PAGES.  PUT THE REST IN SEVERAL COLUMNS
9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
BABYLON WILL BE DESTROYED 21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
CHAPTER 19
1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:
2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
3 And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.
4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.
6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
ARMAGEDDON? 19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
CHAPTER 20
1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
SATAN BOUND FOR 1000 YRS 3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
FIRST RESURRECTION 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
CHAPTER 21
NEW HEAVEN & EARTH AFTER THE MELLANIUM 1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
