The 2 anointed witnesses testify against the world antichrist system and the antichrist who are martyred and rise again the 3rd day after which the antichrist world system is destroyed by the most powerful earthquake on earth which is the 7th trumpet judgment and ushers in the kingdom of God and the time of God to reward the saints and bring judgment to the wicked.
Rev.12: The process of bringing forth God’s ultimate purpose. The ascension of Christ and of the bride in the midst of persecution seeking to destroy her and the casting down of the accuser of the brethren, the devil, to the earth by the angels of righteousness in heaven and by the purity of the bride with no grounds for accusation.

The description of the first harvest in the bringing forth of God’s first fruit bride and also overall bride and then the description of the harvest of judgment in the destruction of the anti-christ.
Rev.15: A description of those that overcome the anti-christ and the anti-christ world system and of the righteousness of God’s judgments on the nations of the world. God’s great anger against the anti-christ world system and the magnification and intensification out of the seventh angelic trumpet judgment in the preparation of 7 golden vial judgments against the antichrist and the antichrist world system and those given to it.
Rev.16: The seven intense anger of God golden vial judgments on the anti-christ and the anti-christ world system and peoples. The first vial of sores and torment on those that have the mark. The 2nd vial of judgment of the sea becoming blood and everything dying in the sea. The 3rd vial judgment upon rivers and fountains of waters all turning to blood and its emphasis on it being vengeance for the shedding of the blood of the saints. The 4th file judgment of the sun intensifying with heat and scorching the inhabitants of the earth which increases their blasphemy against God instead of its intent to bring them to repentance. The 5th file judgment of darkness upon the throne of the beast that causes pain and torment upon those submitted to him and the antichrist world system with increased rebellion and hate against God.

The 7th vial judgment of the ultimate great earthquake that destroys the nations of the world, the anti-christ Babylon system, and the antichrist and its followers of wickedness.
Rev.17: A description of the 1st end time Babylonian world system which most likely are the democracies of the world that have become corrupt with immorality and blasphemies against God and also represent the same system from the time of Cain that persecuted the righteous that stand against wickedness. The system rides upon and an inhumane system that is more like a beast representing communism and various dictatorships that are oppressive. There is the description of the Antichrist in detail whose lineages is traced back to the Kings of Rome that persecuted the early church and who somehow can miraculously transcend time to make the world to wonder how he could of been in the past and yet is existing in the present. 10 kings in Europe make a deal with this Antichrist leader to destroy the democracies of the world most likely by atomic attack probably from Russia and China.
Rev.18: A description of the destruction of the world system known as Babylon by the beast system and exactly why God lets this happen and what this world system is. It is most indicative of the democracies of the world that have a prosperous system of commerce that has become spiritually drunk and adulterous against God by making its focus material gratifications in various pleasures above God. Its drugs deceive the nations and the system has been from the time of Cain.
Rev.19: Rejoicing of the destruction of the world system of immorality by the saints and the marriage of the pure spotless bride of Christ. A description of the destruction of the Anti-Christ and his armies that come against Christ which is also described in Revelation 14: 17-20. The beast and his angels are cast into the lake of fire.
Rev.20: The casting of Satan into the bottomless pit for 1000 years and of those that are in the first resurrection that comes probably somewhere around the time that Satan is bound. They will rule with Christ for a 1000 years which includes those that refused to compromise with the beast and its world system and were martyred. The second death has no power over these. After the 1000 years Satan is released to deceive the nations of the world so that they come against Christ and the saints and are devoured by fire. The devil that was behind the beast is cast into the lake of fire or the beast and false prophet are. There is then the great white throne judgment of all that have died including what seems to be the purging and transformation of the earth and the heavens with fire into a new heavens and new earth. Death and hell are cast into the lake of fire which is the 2nd death and all who are not found written in the book of life are cast in to the lake of fire.
Rev.21: There is a description of those that are qualified to enter the new heaven and the new earth which are those that are not controlled by fear, unbelief, nor have practices that are abominable nor are murderers, warmongers, in bondage to drugs, idolaters or liars. Those that are in the new heaven and the new earth are members of the body of Christ that are not in bondage to such things. The new heaven and the new earth are described in detail particularly in regards to the city and its walls.
Rev.22: A description of the new heaven and those that are qualified to be in it in more detail and a warning against adding or subtracting from the book of Revelation and the terrible judgments that such will receive.
13 When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done. 14 They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea. 15 Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea. 16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.
Isaiah 26: 19-21
19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. 20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. 21 For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.
