John's Time



John had written that the Revelation had been signified to him... Rev 1:1 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: I take this to mean that I am probably not supposed to literally interpret anything in this book. For example, the book shows us two witnesses......but that means something other than the literal interpretation of two men, prophesying or witnessing. The book shows us a mark of the Beast in the forehead and the hand, but that means something other than the literal interpretation of a chip or tattoo on the head or the hand. The book shows us a mountain, falling into the sea, destroying ships, but that means something other than an asteroid falling into the ocean that causes a tsunami. The literal interpretations have been disallowed. The thing was sent and SIGNIFIED to John. SIGNIFIED: Webster has that as 1a MEAN, DENOTE, b: IMPLY 2: to show esp. b a conventional token (as word, signal, or gesture) All I see from men today are people who are speculating about what these things will literally mean. The number of meanings and ideas you gather will only be limited by the number of speculative books you read on this subject and I have read a great many of them. We had better get our heads wrapped around the idea that we will have to do some studying to find out what these symbols really mean, rather than taking the word of men who have their own evil kingdoms in mind and who major in trying to tell me how to spend my money and time (ripped off Russ Taff there a bit...he won't mind)
Rev 1:1 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:








Rev 1:2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.







My general rule, for 65 books of the bible, is that the presumptive interpretation should be the literal meaning, varying from that interpretation as the Holy Spirit leads. For this book, that is reversed because of the angelic instruction: the presumption here is that the interpretation has been signified, unless the Holy Spirit leads one to interpret in another manner.
Rev 1:3 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.








Rev 1:4 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;








Rev 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,








Rev 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.








Rev 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.








Rev 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.








Rev 1:9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.








Rev 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,








Rev 1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.








Rev 1:12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;








Rev 1:13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.








Rev 1:14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;








Rev 1:15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.








Rev 1:16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.








Rev 1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:








Rev 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.








Rev 1:19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;








Rev 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

John's Time




Rev 2:1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;








Rev 2:2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:








Rev 2:3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.








Rev 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.








Rev 2:5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.








Rev 2:6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.








Rev 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.








Rev 2:8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;








Rev 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.








Rev 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.








Rev 2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.








Rev 2:12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;








Rev 2:13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.








Rev 2:14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.








Rev 2:15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.








Rev 2:16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.








Rev 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.








Rev 2:18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;








Rev 2:19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.








Rev 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.








Rev 2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.








Rev 2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.








Rev 2:23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.








Rev 2:24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.








Rev 2:25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.








Rev 2:26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:








Rev 2:27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.








Rev 2:28 And I will give him the morning star.








Rev 2:29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Rev 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.


John's Time




Rev 3:2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.








Rev 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.








Rev 3:4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.








Rev 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.








Rev 3:6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.








Rev 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;








Rev 3:8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.








Rev 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.








Rev 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.








Rev 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.








Rev 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.








Rev 3:13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.








Rev 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;








Rev 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.








Rev 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.








Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:








Rev 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.








Rev 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.








Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.








Rev 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.








Rev 3:22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Rev 4:1 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.


90 AD to 170 AD




Rev 4:2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.








Rev 4:3 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.








Rev 4:4 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.








Rev 4:5 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.








Rev 4:6 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.








Rev 4:7 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.








Rev 4:8 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.








Rev 4:9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,








Rev 4:10 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,

Rev 5:1 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.


90 AD to 170 AD




Rev 5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?








Rev 5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.








Rev 5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.








Rev 5:5 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.








Rev 5:6 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.








Rev 5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.








Rev 5:8 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.








Rev 5:9 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;







This is, in my opinion, the first and most well documented sign in the whole Book of Revelation. It is also the only one that is divinely interpreted within Revelation 17 itself. So, if you are filling out your Revelation puzzle, this is the first piece that you fit into place on your chronological time-line, as every single symbol that is given by John has been explained in a very neat and tight fit into the 1,260 year time-line for the rise and fall of the Papacy. This Revelation 17 event most certainly fits with great exactness into the time of the French Revolution, as displayed in Revelation 16, Vials one through five. Given that so much of Revelation 12 and 13 describe this same beast empire, yet in an earlier, more imperial and less religious form, it serves as the foundation post from where we begin to unlock the secrets of the meaning of this entire Book of Revelation. Strong argument is therefore made that the seals and first four trumpets most probably refer to the fall of Imperial Rome prior to 476 AD.
Rev 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.








Rev 5:11 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;








Rev 5:12 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.








Rev 5:13 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.








Rev 5:14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

Here, you can SEE the dates of when these events took place, as well as reference sources in various writings. I hold the view that several of the vials are still pouring...something the Historicist writers could not have foreseen 110 to 160 years ago. Event 1-1st Seal

170 AD to 180 AD Six seals, representing the fall of the Pagan Roman Empire. These are seals of the Rev. 5:1-3 Book, and the simplest method of interpretation, suggested by the internal arrangement, is that each seal, trumpet and bowl presents events that are chronologically arranged as to their starting date, yet there may be some overrunning of those events that follow as to the time of effect. Elliott interprets the first seal as prosperity of the Roman Empire in it's sallying forth to conquer that immediately preceded the decline of the Empire. This prosperity lasted from 80-90 years after John's banishment. The Triplicate nesting view of Seals, Trumpets and Bowls is discussed by Elliott in Vol 1, p322 to p 323

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, p234 chart, Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 122, footnote 1, also p130, also p 322-p323 These four beasts are the same as identified in chapter 4 and 5: the six winged creatures of Rev 4:7-8. Guinness maintained that in order to identify the events of the apocalypse, we need to look first for those symbols that are Divinely interpreted within the text; fill those events in as we would a crossword puzzle where certain words are quite surely known, and proceed forwards and backwards from the known position chronologically to identify those events where there is no Divine interpretation given, but where history provides interpretive help, which is less reliable than Divine identification. This seems almost like filling in the blanks to fit. Hence, Historicists apply these six seals to the Roman Empire because John was under censure by that Empire and because Rev. 17 clearly delineates that the seven headed beast is set on seven hills (Rev 17:9). Since this identfies this beast as Rome, it becomes very easy to identify the ten horns as the Papal States. Next in order, the 5th and 6th trumpet, along with the identity of the two witnesses, seems to me most assuredly identified.
Rev 6:1 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.








Rev 6:2 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.



Expositors maintained for many hundreds of years, through the writings of Bishop Mede, that this rider was Christ. Elliott and Guinness both feel this is erroneous.

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 124 I agree with Guinness: 1) first identify the Divinely interpreted Papal Roman Empire of Revelation 17. 2) Then, identify the 5th trumpet as Mohammed and successors for 150 years 3) Next, identify the French Revolution as the Seventh trumpet and five of the vials. 4) Next, identify the Turkish woe of the 6th trumpet as the fourth most certain, 5) Next, identify the two witnesses. 6) Identify the going forth of the angel with the everlasting gospel and 7) Identify that it was the Turkish-Moslem horde that were bound at the Euphrates at Baghdad for several hundred years prior to the Turkish woe. Once you have placed these seven identified symbolic events in the Chronology, the rest are much more readily identified.
Rev 6:3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. Event 2-2nd Seal

185 AD to 192 AD Outbreaking violence between 185AD and 192 AD

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 148 This is, in my opinion, the first and most well documented sign in the whole Book of Revelation. It is also the only one that is divinely interpreted within Revelation 17 itself. So, if you are filling out your Revelation puzzle, this is the first piece that you fit into place on your chronological time-line, as every single symbol that is given by John has been explained in a very neat and tight fit into the 1,260 year time-line for the rise and fall of the Papacy. This Revelation 17 event most certainly fits with great exactness into the time of the French Revolution, as displayed in Revelation 16, Vials one through five. Given that so much of Revelation 12 and 13 describe this same beast empire, yet in an earlier, more imperial and less religious form, it serves as the foundation post from where we begin to unlock the secrets of the meaning of this entire Book of Revelation. Strong argument is therefore made that the seals and first four trumpets most probably refer to the fall of Imperial Rome prior to 476 AD.
Rev 6:4 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.








Rev 6:5 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. Event 3-3rd Seal

248 AD to 265 AD The scale and balance appeared on the Roman Imperial coin of Alexander Severus

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 181
Rev 6:6 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.



Our translation of “Penny” is unfortunate, as “Denarius” is used, which was a standard Roman coin that had about the silver contained in a US quarter pre 1965, Hence John hears something that denotes pricing in the Roman Empire. Elliott believes this speaks of corruption in the assessing of taxes as it went forth in the third century AD and in unfair and innacurrate balances used to weigh out the grain, oil and wine.

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 188
Rev 6:7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. Event 4-4th Seal

286 AD to 292 AD Symbolizing death in all its' causes and forms, including plague, wich raged from 248 to 265, and famine, also from 286 to 292

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 191-p201
Rev 6:8 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.








Rev 6:9 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: Event 5-5th Seal

303 AD to 312 AD Elliott marks it from Dicletian's persecution, which began in 303, as this was known as the era of the martyrs, as it followed after forty years of peace and acceptance of Christian religion in the realm, though there were ten periods of persecution, beginning with Nero, around 65, followed by Domitian and others.

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 209-p223
Rev 6:10 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?



History alike History, alike secular and ecclesiastical, agrees in thus representing it and by a remarkable coincidence, and as if on purpose to call attention to the fulfihnent in this persecution of the fifth Seal's prefigurative vision, a chronological aera, dating from Diocletian's accession, and, until the introduction of the Christian wra in tlie sixth century, of general use among Christian writers,—I say this aera, though instituted for other and astronomical purposes, has received its title from it,"* and is called the Aera of Martyrs. Churches to be demolished, the Holy Scriptures burnt, church property confiscated, the holders of religious assembhes put to death, and Christians generally put out of the protection of the law,—such were the heads of the first edict. Then followed others, imposing penalties of imprisonment, tortures, and death, first against the Christian bishops, presbyters, and other ecclesiastics, then against all Christians, if obstinate in their faith. In this series of cruel edicts, Diocletian declared " his intention of abolishing the Christian name." The fury of the populace readily, for the most part, seconded the declared intention of the emperor. And thus, with the partial exception of the western provinces, under the rule of the Caesar Constantius Chlorus, (I say partial, for Spain and Britain too furnished many victims,)^ Christian blood was shed throughout the extent of the Roman world. And, long before the nine or ten years of the persecution expired, such had been its efiect that the three other emperors, Diocletian, Maximian, and Galerius, united to raise pillars commemorative of their success ; on which pillars inscriptions, not long since and perhaps still extant, recorded their vain boast of having extirpated Christianity.^ Por church-service the Christians now met in caves and catacombs. Their only way of visibly and publicly witnessing for Christ was by martyrdom.

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 209-p210
Rev 6:11 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 fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.








Rev 6:12 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; Event 6-6th Seal

306AD-312 AD Constantine accedes to the throne in 312AD, Christianity becomes the religion of the empire, persecutions cease. Thus, as Elliott renders it: “Thus, in the political heavens, had the sun of Pagan supremacy been darkened, the moon become eclipsed and blood-red, and of the stars not a few been shaken violently to the ground.”

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 235-p 252 The Greek word “seizmos”, here translated as “Earthquake”, is the same Greek word found in Matthew 8:24, where it is rendered as a “tempest” on the sea of Galilee. The word denotes a great shaking and it's use is proper where any type of shaking will suffice, whether it be of natural, political or religious origin.
Rev 6:13 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.



Thus, to show how, from earliest times, the symbols of the sun, moon, and stars were used of rulers, so as I have explained them, a reference has been made to Joseph's dream, (Gen. xxxvii. 9,) in which the sun and moon are expressly interpreted of the chief heads of a nascent nation, the stars of its inferior heads.—To illustrate the meaning of an earthquake, and the consequent convulsions and changes in the firmamental heavens and their luminaries, there have been quoted passages from Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and others ; in which the symbol is used of political revolution in a state or kingdom, of the subversion of its institutions, and fall of its governing powers. So in Jeremiah's vision (iv. |23, &c.) of the destruction and desolation of the Jewish kingdom by the Babylonians : "I beheld the land, and lo ! it was without form and void ; and the heavens, and they had no light. I beheld the mountains, and lo ! They trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. . . I beheld, and lo ! all the cities thereof were broken down, at the presence of the Lord, and by his fierce anger. . . For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens be black. The whole city shall flee for the noise of the horsemen and bowmen : they shall go into thickets, and chmb up on [or into] the rocks." So in Ezekiel, (xxxii. 7, &c.,) of the overthrow of Pharaoh and his kingdom by the king of Babylon : " When I shall put thee out, I will cover the heavens, and make the stars thereof dark : I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light. All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee, and I will set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord."

Elliott, Horae, Vol 1, P 247
Rev 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.



First, then, it should be distinctly understood that the expressions here used respecting the earthquake, and the phenomena in the sun, moon, and stars, cannot be interpreted literally, or as referring to those physical changes in the material earth and firmament of heaven, which other prophecies lead us undoubtingly to expect at the consummation of the great day. The clearest literal description of these physical changes is perhaps that given in 2 Peter iii. 10 :—" The day of the Lord shall come as a thief in the night, in the which the heavens (i. e. the firmament. Gen. i. 7, 8) shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat ; the earth also, and the works that are therein, shall be burned up. Now of a conflagration, like this, no hint is given in the vision of the sixtli Seal.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 1, P 249
Rev 6:15 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;



Finally, to illustrate what is said of the pagan hosts " hiding themselves in the dens and rocks of the mountains, and saying to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne," &c., a reference has been made to Hosea's prediction ^ of the Israelites thus calling on the mountains to cover them, and the hills to fall on them, under the terror and calamities of Shalmanezer's invasion. To which we may add what is told us, historically, of the Israelites hiding in such rocky caverns, whensoever, as in the times of Saul or of the Maccabees,^ the enemy might have gained possession of the country.—All which being put together, there will not, I believe, remain a single symbolic phrase in this prophecy of the sixth Seal unillustrated, or with the interpretation referring it to a political revolution (such as has been here given) unconfirmed, by similar figures in other prophecies, to which the scriptural context has itself already furnished a similar interpretation.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 1, P 248
Rev 6:16 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:



Thus my conclusion from simply comparing the descriptive language in the two passages is this,—that they portray different and distinct earthquakes ; that of the sixth Seal the less, that of the seventh Vial much the greater: although it is allowed that the former may be possibly in a certain sense typical of the latter ; in the same way that a less event, of the same character, is often in Scripture typical of a greater following :—a conclusion confirmed by the figuring of the earth, sea, and sky, in this same Seal's next vision, as all restored ; so as after the last earthquake they certainly will not be.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 1, P 251
Rev 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Rev 7:1 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. Event 7-Four Destroying Angels Sent


The meaning is, that events would occur which would be properly represented by four angels standing in the four quarters of the world, and having power over the winds.

Barnes Commentary on Revelation 7:1
Rev 7:2 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,



This angel, also, must have been symbolic; and all that is implied is, that something would be done as if an angel had done it.

Barnes Commentary on Revelation 7:2
Rev 7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.








Rev 7:4 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. Event 8-144,000 Sealed


Depicted to St. John as the subjects of divine sovereign grace, electing them from out of the midst of mere professing Christendom, and then illuminating, quickening, and stamping them with the Father's appropriating mark as his own :—the perfectness of their number, however comparatively small, indicated by the declared mystic number 144,000 ; their preservation, amidst the severest of God's providential judgments on the world they mixed in, ensured by his charge to the tempest-angels concerning them ; and other intimations added to the effect that, even though oppressed, and apparently, at one time at least, conquered by their enemies,4 they should remain in reality indestructible

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, P 255
Rev 7:5 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.








Rev 7:6 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.








Rev 7:7 Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.








Rev 7:8 Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.








Rev 7:9 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;








Rev 7:10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.








Rev 7:11 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,








Rev 7:12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.








Rev 7:13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?








Rev 7:14 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. Event 9-Multitude Coming Out Of Great Tribulation


The word rendered “tribulation” - θλίψις thlipsis - is a word of general character, meaning “affliction,” though perhaps there is here an allusion to persecution. The sense, however, would be better expressed by the phrase great trials. The object seems to have been to set before the mind of the apostle a view of those who had suffered much, and who by their sufferings had been sanctified and prepared for heaven, in order to encourage those who might be yet called to suffer.

Barnes Commentary on Revelation 7:14
Rev 7:15 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.








Rev 7:16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.








Rev 7:17 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.

Rev 8:1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. Event 10-7th Seal

476 AD Seal of the Trumpets, representing the fall of the Pagan, Imperial Western Roman Empire around 476 AD

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, p234 chart This is, in my opinion, the first and most well documented sign in the whole Book of Revelation. It is also the only one that is divinely interpreted within Revelation 17 itself. So, if you are filling out your Revelation puzzle, this is the first piece that you fit into place on your chronological time-line, as every single symbol that is given by John has been explained in a very neat and tight fit into the 1,260 year time-line for the rise and fall of the Papacy. This Revelation 17 event most certainly fits with great exactness into the time of the French Revolution, as displayed in Revelation 16, Vials one through five. Given that so much of Revelation 12 and 13 describe this same beast empire, yet in an earlier, more imperial and less religious form, it serves as the foundation post from where we begin to unlock the secrets of the meaning of this entire Book of Revelation. Strong argument is therefore made that the seals and first four trumpets most probably refer to the fall of Imperial Rome prior to 476 AD.
Rev 8:2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.








Rev 8:3 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.








Rev 8:4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.








Rev 8:5 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








Rev 8:6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.



Elliott marks the first six trumpets as covering 395 AD to 1453 AD. He also argues here for a chronologically successive interpretation and against those who suppose the Book to consist of a triple series of prefigurative visions, chronologically parallel with each other.

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 321-p322
Rev 8:7 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. Event 11-1st Trumpet

395 AD to 410 AD Gothic invasions which followed the death of Theodosius On Jan. 17, 395, the era of Alaric and Rhadagaisus, embraching 400 AD to 410 AD, the Vandals had extended their conquests to the Straits of Gades: and Alaric, who had reached South Italy, died suddenly.

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, p234 chart..Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 325, Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 377
Rev 8:8 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; Event 12-2nd Trumpet

429 AD to 468 AD Gothic invasions: the era of the Vandal Genseric, who conquered the maritime provinces of Africa and the islands in the Mediterranean, beginning in 429 AD to 468 AD, when te Roman Navy had hoped to destroy the Vandals, were utterly destroyed by fire-ships driven among them in the night.

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, p234 chart, Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p378-p380
Rev 8:9 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.








Rev 8:10 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; Event 13-3rd Trumpet

433 AD to 446 AD Gothic invasions. Attila the Hun was also raging against the Eastern reaches of the Empire from 433AD to 446 AD

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, p234 chart, Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p378-p380,
Rev 8:11 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.








Rev 8:12 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. Event 14-4th Trumpet

456 AD to 476 AD Gothic invasions: The period of Odoacer, Chief of the Heruli, a remnant of the host of Attila, on the Alpine frontiers of Italy, threw off Roman rule. This occurred beginning in 456 AD until the fall of Rome in 476 AD

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, p234 chart, Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p383
Rev 8:13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

Rev 9:1 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. EVENT 15-5th Trumpet, 1st Woe, Saracenic Woe
Strong 612 AD to 762 AD Fulfilled between 612 AD and 762 AD by the Islamic armies under Mohammed and successors

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 431-p 463 This is, in my opinion, the second most documented sign in the whole Book of Revelation. So, if you are filling out your Revelation puzzle, this is the second piece that you fit into place on your chronological time-line, as every single symbol that is given by John has been explained in a very neat and tight fit into the 150 year time-line of the rise of Mohamed and the Saracens.
Rev 9:2 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.



Interpreting this smoke from the pit of the abyss as an emanation from the pit of hell :—i. e. as some system of error 2^6. false religion thence originating : originating, it would seem, very suddenly ; and of which the effect would be, almost instantaneously, to darken the moral atmosphere, and dim the imperial sun in the firmamental heaven.

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 441
Rev 9:3 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.



First, and chiefly, the locust, the ground-wort of the symbol, is peculiarly Arabic. So the sacred history of ancient times informs us. " It was the east wind," it says, " which brought the locusts " on Egypt :^ from which the inference arises, that the country they issued from must have been that which, in all its extent, lies east of Egypt, that is Arabia.

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 433
Rev 9:4 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.



Strange as such restriction on the scorpion-locusts must appear, (" it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth,^ neither any green thing, neither any tree,") yet had it its precise counterpart in the Koran, and in the actions of the otherwise destroying Saracens. The often-quoted order of the Caliph Aboubeker, issued to the Saracen hordes on their first invasion of Syria, " Destroy no palm-trees, nor any fields of corn, cut down no fruit-trees, nor do any mischief to cattle," was an order originating not from the individual character of the Caliph, but from the precept of Mahomet.^

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 453
Rev 9:5 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.



It was said to the Saracen locusts, " that they should not kill," not politically annihil-ate the united Church and State of Christendom, either in the East, or in any one of the kingdoms of the West ;—however scorpion-like they might mutilate the poLItical body, and torment the men, its constituents. In attempting to annihilate them, they exceeded their commission, and were repulsed… 2ndly, that the period intended by the 150 days is, if I am right, 150 years.

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 456 Elliott Vol 1, p. 463 lays down the argument for the 150 year fulfillment.
Rev 9:6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.



The scorpion likeness, that of the men in Roman Christendom," whose lives they spared, they would be the tormentors, even as with a scorpion's poison-sting.

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 433
Rev 9:7 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.



And who know not, if facts so notorious be worth mentioning, that it is Arabia, still Arabia, that is regarded by naturalists' as the original country of the horse and that its wildernesses are the haunts also of the lion...And let me add, in regard to the turban-crown, it happens very singularly that Ezekiel (xxiii. 42) describes the turbans of the Sabaean or Keturite Arabs under this precise appellation ; " Sabeans from the wilderness, which put beautiful crowns upon their heads :"^

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 434-p 437
Rev 9:8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.



Pliny, St. John's contemporary at the close of the first century, speaks of the Arabs as wearing the turban, having the hair long and uncut, with the moustache on the upper lip, or the beard ;

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 437
Rev 9:9 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.
Rev. 9:17

See “Horses” in verse 17 (Elliott's comment)



Rev 9:10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.



The scorpion, the native locality was by the Jews considered the Arabian desert. Witness Moses' own words to the Israelites, on emerging from it after forty years' wandering ; " that great and terrible wilderness wherein were fiery serpents and scorpions."

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 434 Elliott's dates fit within 12 days. Guinness' dates fit within about 3 years
Rev 9:11 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.



The opener of the pit of the abyss, and chief of destroyers, Satan ;^ or perhaps one of Satan's angels,^ the Spirit of evil that, like the lying Spirit in the mouth of Ahab's prophets, had inspired Mahomet ; and of whom Mahomet, and after him his Caliphs, or Vicars,"^ were but the mouth and instrument.

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 451
Rev 9:12 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.








Rev 9:13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, EVENT 16-6th Trumpet, 2nd Woe, Turkish Woe
Strong 1057 AD to 1453 AD AND/OR 1300 AD to 1699 AD Fulfilled between 1300 AD and 1699 AD by the Turks, hence the Historicists call this the “Turkish Woe”, Guinness reckons from the rise of Othman (1300) to Peace of Carlowitz (1699)(Victory at Vienna); Elliott reckons it from Jan 18, 1057 (Loosing of the Turko-Moslem power from Baghdad) to May 29, 1453 (Fall of Constantinople)...P490 discusses how earlier historicists had failed to satisfactorily interpret the Turkish woe.

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, p. 176-p. 179, Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 480- p532 Elliott's dates fit within 12 days. Guinness dates fit within about 3 years However, there is a strong indication, that the second woe need be fulfilled before the seventh trumpet blows and the vials are poured and they were poured during the French Revolution upon the Beast. So, if one holds that the chronological flow of Seals, Trumpets and Vials is the Divine intention, this most necessarily must fit for the sixth Trumpet, since the Seventh, with the pouring of the Vials, certainly began to blow and pour with the French Revolution. The language of the sixth vial seems open to a Turk revival of power in the last days.
Rev 9:14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.



Bound at the Euphrates since 756 AD, most specifically bound at Baghdad. The four angels loosed are thought by Elliott to be the 4 angels of the 4 winds, at Revelation 7:1

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 491 This is, in my opinion, the third most well documented sign in the whole Book of Revelation. So, if you are filling out your Revelation puzzle, this is the third piece that you fit into place on your chronological time-line, as every single symbol that is given by John has been explained in a very neat and tight fit into the 396 year time-line. For they speak of the Turkish-Moslem horde, after they had been bound for hundreds of years at Baghdad by the Euphrates River.
Rev 9:15 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.



A Year=365 years, A Month=30.42 years, A day=1 year, An Hour=15.21 days for a total of 396.5 years...To slay the third part of man refers, says Elliott, to the Greek, or Easter leg of the Roman Empire

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 504
Rev 9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.



Gk “Murious”, “Murious”, an unnumbered horde of Myriads of Myriads



Rev 9:17 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.



The Moslem Turks were distinguished by their extremely large numbers of horse cavalry, numbered at 700,000 in a reference quoted by Elliott. Elliott remarks that expositors since Mede have reckoned that the fire, smoke brimstone and sulfur is a picture of the artillery bombardment of Constantinople, gunpowder only having recently been discovered.

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 506-510
Rev 9:18 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.



The Turkman Sultan of 1530 called himself Unkiar, the slayer of men

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 504
Rev 9:19 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.



Referencing the horses tails, the Turkish battle ensign had a pole with one, two or three horse-tails (The Turks were the only army in history to carry such an ensign or banner). The upward turned crescent moon was affixed at the top of the horse tales. Elliott reckons that the heads seen over these horse tales were rulers or governing authorities.

Elliott, Horae, Vol I, p 512
Rev 9:20 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:








Rev 9:21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

Rev 11:1 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.








Rev 11:2 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 months.








Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. EVENT 18-2 Witnesses

606AD to 1866AD Two Witnesses: Pre Reformation and Reformation. Could it be then that the forty-two months, or forty-two times thirty days, i.e. 1260 prophetic days or years, of the apostasy, should have prolonged their dreary course without a witness having been kept up for Christ ? It was in the nature of the case impossible... They shall prophesy 1260 days clothed in sackcloth.'' Sackcloth was among the Jews the almost universal sign of mourning

Elliott, Horae, Vol 2, p 205, p212...The whole large section from p205 to p408 deals with the witnesses up unto the Reformation. There were witnesses to the true gospel through the entire time of the 1,260 year Papal apostasy, beginning with Serenus, Bishop of Marseilles(circa 606AD), who taught against the sin of image worship. To which this error then led to the worship of relics and invisible departed saints.(Elliott, p226-229)… Then, the Council of Frankfort, A.D. 794, under Charlemagne, and protest of 300 Bishops of Western Christendom, as well as its Emperor, in opposition to the Popes of Rome, against image-worship : one followed up in 825 by a Council at Paris, convened also against image-worship ;and which accompanied its decrees with an express rebuke of the Pope.'" Many others followed them unto the Reformation
Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
Zec. 4:11

Of these emblems the candlesticks, or lamp-sconces, are explained by Christ Himself to symbolize Christian Churches….it was the olivetree that supplied nourishment to the temple-lamps,—it being commanded that pure oil-olive should alone be burnt in them,^—it would seem that those must be symbolized thereby who supplied the needful spiritual nourishment to the Christian churches ; in other words, all faithful ministers and gospel-preachers, ministering to them.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 2, p 209
Rev 11:5 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.



I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them, was fulfilled, we know, by the subsequent burning of their city, and their destruction not individually, but as a nation.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 2, p 213
Rev 11:6 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.



It could not be that for 1260 years there should be no natural rain :—a spiritual drought must be intended. Again, their turning the waters into blood can only be interpreted of the bloodshed of wars, inflicted in God's providence on the enemies of the Witnesses; and the fire going out of their mouths of God's fiery judgments, destroying the apostates nationally that might have persecuted them.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 2, p 213
Rev 11:7 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.



And thus, ere we enter on the history of the Councils of Orleans and Arras, early in the same xith century,—in which Councils heretics and heresies were condemned, that had been imported, it was said, from Italy,'^ and which introduced,
and were followed by, the (so-called) heresies of Berenger,^ Arnold of Brescia, Peter de Bruys, and his disciple Henry, and in fine of the Waldenses...and the Paulikians and seemingly numberless more


Elliott, Horae, Vol 2, p247, p 409 to p463 Regarding the Waldenses: the history and epoch of the Lyonnese merchant, generally known under the name of Peter Waldo (Valdes), (a name incorrect, however, as will soon appear, has become almost more notable than even on his own account; eminent as he was among Christ's witnesses. For about the year 1170, having sold all he had,'^ and distributed to the poor, he became head to certain missionary bands, known thenceforward under the name of Waldenses, as well as Poor men of Lyons : that soon drew on themselves the public attention and persecution in various countries of Western Europe ; and, from before the close of the next century, were well known as sectaries that had an intimate local connexion with the Alpine valleys of Piedmont and Dauphiny. (Elliott p344)
Rev 11:8 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.



Bernard, a condemned “Heretic” testified in 1116-1147 as follows: " The churches are without people ; the people without priests ; the priests without reverence ; Christians without Christ •} the churches are reckoned but as synagogues ; the sacraments not held sacred ; excommunications by priests, invocation of saints, oblations for the dead, pilgrimages, festival-days, are all neglected and despised : by denial of the grace of baptism infants are precluded from salvation ; and men die in their sins, their souls being hurried away to the terrible tribunal, unreconciled by penitence, unfortified by the holy communion."^

Elliott, Horae, Vol 2, p 285-p291, p431 Regarding the Martyrs of Colgone, as criticized by the Monk Eckbert, circa 1160, we read “the same heretics continued to abound in the neighbourhood of Cologne ; that it was their habit to defend their tenets by words of Holy Scripture ; that they did this so speciously, that even the learned of the clergy were, to their disgrace, very generally unable to reply ; and that they were mercilessly persecuted, even unto death. With what martyrs' constancy they braved death, notwithstanding Eckbert's attempt to depreciate it…..Says Mosheim : " As the xvith century opened, no danger seemed to threaten the Roman Pontiffs. The agitations excited in former centuries by the Waldenses, Albigenses, Beghards, . . . and afterwards by the Bohemians, had been suppressed aj\d extinguished by counsel and the sword. THE FIRST WITNESS HAD PERISHED. Onward came the Reformation
Rev 11:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.


Oct. 7, 1685 AD to April, 1689 AD The fatal day of the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. was the 17th of October, 1685. Peter Jurieu, one of the exiled Huguenot ministers wrote a book in 1687, a copy of which lies before us, entitled," The accomplishment of the Scripture prophecies on the approaching deliverance of the Church, proving that the present persecution may end in three years and a half; after which the destruction of the Antichrist shall begin, which shall be finished in the beginning of the next age,
and then the Kingdom of Christ shall come upon earth." Including the persecution and reinstatement of the Vaudois Valley Protestants


Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, p153, p402-403 Regarding The Waldenses (further): " After this the heretic draws a comparison between the state of the Romish Church and that of his sect ; saying thus :—The doctors of the Romish Church are proud in their dress and manners ; they love the chief seats, and seek to be called of men Rabbi ; but such Rabbies they desire not. Also they are incontinent : but each one of us has his wife, and lives chastely M'ith her. Also they are the rich and covetous, to whom it is said. Woe unto you
rich ; ye have received your consolation : but we, having food and clothes to cover us, are content therewith. Also they are the voluptuous ones, to whom it is said, ' Woe to you who devour widows' houses.' But we gain sustenance how and whence we may. Also they fight and make wars, and command the poor to be killed and burnt. Of such it is said, ' He that taketh the sword shall perish with the sword.' ^ We, however, suffer persecution from them for righteousness.—Also they eat the bread of idleness, doing nothing : but we work w^ith our hands. Also they wish to be the only teachers ; to whom it is said, Matt, xxiii., ' Woe unto you that have taken away the key of knowledge :' but among us, women teach, as well as men ; and a disciple of seven days instructs another.
Rev 11:10 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.



I take Pope Leo's own Bull for the dissolution of the Council, dated in March 1517, as the illustrator. It speaks of all the objects for which the Council had been called, (and the reader will well remember that amongst those objects was " the total extirpation of heresies," of old heresies as well as new,) as having been happily and successfully accomplished.^ It reports not only the extinction of the Pisan schism or heresy, but the universal union of the Church. "All which considered," says Leo, " our soul exults in the Lord :and we judge that thanks should be given to God for it.”

Elliott, Horae, Vol 2, p 454 Waldenses (continued)Also there is hardly a teacher among them that knows by heart three connected chapters of the New Testament : but among us there is scarce a man or woman who cannot repeat its
text in the vulgar tongue. And, because we have the true faith of Christ, and teach a holy life and doctrine, therefore the Scribes and Pharisees,^ without cause, persecute us unto death, as they did Christ.—Moreover they only say, and do not ; and bind heavy burdens on men's shoulders, and do not move them with a finger : but we practise all we teach. Also they are more urgent in compelling the observance of the traditions of men, than of the commands of God;^ as of fasts, festivals, going to church, and many other things, which are of human institution : but we only persuade men to keep the doctrine of Christ and the apostles. Also they load penitents with grievous penances : but we, after the example of Christ, say to the sinner. Go and sin no more ! and remit all sins to him by our imposition of hand ; and transmit souls at death to heaven : but they send almost all souls to hell.—Having stated these and other points, the heretic says ; Consider which state, and which faith, is the more perfect ;—ours, or that of the Church of Rome ; and make choice of it.^—Thus the hearer is turned away from the catholic faith, being seduced by their errors."
Rev 11:11 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.



The fatal day of the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. was the 17th of October, 1685. Peter Jurieu, one of the exiled Huguenot ministers wrote a book in 1687, a copy of which lies before us, entitled," The accomplishment of the Scripture prophecies on the approaching deliverance of the Church, proving that the present persecution may end in three years and a half; after which the destruction of the Antichrist shall begin, which shall be finished in the beginning of the next age,
and then the Kingdom of Christ shall come upon earth." Including the persecution and reinstatement of the Vaudois Valley Protestants


Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, p153, p402-403, Elliott, Horae, Vol 2, p488 Regarding the Huguenots: In France the massacre of St. Bartholomew's day, A. D. 1572, showed the feeling of both king, nobles, priests, and people towards the Huguenots, or Protestants, before Henry IV's accession and the Edict of Nantes. After which repeal the remnant of Protestants in Erance were a body without the pale of the law : and sad indeed is the picture drawn of their miseries, even up to the year 1788, just immediately before the Revolution.^ It is well observed from Hume by Mr. Cuninghame,^ that after the massacre of St. Bartholomew, when the Erench Ambassador came to court, ' nothing could be more awful and affecting than the solemnity of his audience. A melancholy sorrow sate on every face. —The same again was the feeling in England and Holland after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes. Whilst one member so suffered, how could the others but sympathize with it !—No ! The 1260 days were not yet ended. Its true Protestant Witnesses, though participating in the national ascent of Protestantism into the political heaven, had not yet put off their sackcloth. (Elliott, Vol 2, p488)
Rev 11:12 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.



But could it be that the Witnesses so lately made war against, even to extermination, and which had been moreover rejoiced over, when apparently dead, by delegates from every part of Western Christendom, and even after their resuscitation aimed at afresh in hostile decrees, like those of Worms and Augsburg,—could it be, be called up, and that with a voice audible through all Europe, to political ascendancy and power?—It needs but little acquaintance with modern history to know that such was indeed the very fact ; and this within little more than 20 years from the anti-Protestant Decree of Augsburg.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 2,, p467
Rev 11:13 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.



The Apocalyptic great city included in its empire, according to the prophecy, just ten kingdoms ; and that the word fall is used in prophecy with reference to cities or countries conquered, and transferred to the dominion of a triumphant enemy. It was the conquest and overthrow of the Papal empire in one of these ten kingdoms, apparently, that was the thing predicted. Was there any one of the ten kingdoms of Papal Christendom —wherein about the same time as the great political exaltation of the Protestants in Northern Germany the Papal Empire fell, overthrown by Protestantism. And, in answer to the question, does not history, as with a finger-point, direct the inquirer to England

Elliott, Horae, Vol 2,, p472-p476 This is huge, for it is a unified tie in to join this prophecy of the two witnesses with the 7 headed, 10 horned beast, with crowns, of Revelation 17, as fulfilled in the Papal Roman Empire. It is of the phylarchs or
heads of tribes, distinctively, that the statement is made, on the first numbering of Israel near the Mount of Sinai ; " These were the renowned [literally, the called by name of the congregation ; princes of the tribes of their fathers, heads of thousands in Israel. Elliott, p476
Rev 11:14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.



It is just after the prophecy of the political earthquake that arose out of the Reformation, and consequent fall more particularly of the tenth part, and of seven chiliads also, of the great Papal City,—in other words of the overthrow of the Papal dominion in England and in the seven Dutch Provinces, whereby was completed the 'political establishment of the Reformation,—it is just after this, I say, and not before, that there is made the statement in our text, " The second Woe is passed." — Throughout the period of the earlier progress of the Reformation the Turkish Woe continued imminent.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 2,, p490
Rev 11:15 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. Event 19-7th Trumpet, 3rd Woe

1793 AD French Revolution and ancillary precedent causes and antecedent effects



Rev 11:16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,








Rev 11:17 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.








Rev 11:18 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 11:19 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.

Rev 12:1 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: Event 20-Sun Clothed Woman


That these three visions of the wild beast power (Rev 12, Rev 13 and Rev 17) represent successive stages in the history of the Roman Empire, as first under the government of its seven heads ; secondly under the government of its ten horns, for in the prophecy the crowns are transferred from the heads to the horns; and thirdly as carrying, and then casting off and destroying, the harlot Babylon.

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, preface x This is, in my opinion, the first and most well documented sign in the whole Book of Revelation. It is also the only one that is divinely interpreted within Revelation 17 itself. So, if you are filling out your Revelation puzzle, this is the first piece that you fit into place on your chronological time-line, as every single symbol that is given by John has been explained in a very neat and tight fit into the 1,260 year time-line for the rise and fall of the Papacy. This Revelation 17 event most certainly fits with great exactness into the time of the French Revolution, as displayed in Revelation 16, Vials one through five. Given that so much of Revelation 12 and 13 describe this same beast empire, yet in an earlier, more imperial and less religious form, it serves as the foundation post from where we begin to unlock the secrets of the meaning of this entire Book of Revelation. Strong argument is therefore made that the seals and first four trumpets most probably refer to the fall of Imperial Rome prior to 476 AD.
Rev 12:2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.



The meaning of the travailing woman, first exhibited in vision, can scarce be mistaken. She is spoken of in the last verse of this chapter as the mother of " those that keep the commandments of God, and the testimony of Jesus Christ." l She was evidently therefore Christ's true Church on earth ; the Church of the 144,000, or first-horn whose names were written in heaven

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, p 7
Rev 12:3 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. Event 21-Dragon With 7 Heads and 10 horns, with crowns on his 7 HEADS Dan 2:40#Daniel Chapter 2
224 BC to 476 AD-Rome Pagan The dragon is the ten-horned wild beast power of the Apocalypse ' whose identity with the fourth or ten horned wild beast of the prophecies of Daniel was recognized by the Church of the second, third, and fourth centuries. Of the fourth beast " dreadful and terrible " Hippolytus " who are these but the Romans . . .the kingdom which is now established .׳' " " John in the Apocalypse," says Irenaeus, " teaches us what the ten horns shall be which were seen by Daniel." This particular Beast, according to Guinness, refers to Rome Pagan, under the seven forms of Emperors.

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, p50 The crowns are seen to be upon the heads here in Rev. 12:3, as opposed to being seen on the ten horns in Rev. 13:1. This is a powerful and persuasive indicator that Imperial, Pagan Rome, under its' seven successive rulers, is prefigured here. The linkage of John's ten horned wild beast with Daniel's four beast is complex: probably not complete without inclusion of the Islamic Eastern leg of the Roman Empire, as discussed at the link provided below to my article.
Rev 12:4 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.



Seven heads to signify seven, or in a certain sense eight, successive rulers, or successions or classes of rulers. Daubuz attributes its discovery to King James. Pareus, p. 422, as the solution of Aretius, Napier, and Brightman ; each of whom probably, some certainly, preceded King James. Indeed I find almost the same in the yet earlier commentator Osiander j the same of whom I have spoken, Vol. ii. p. 136, and who published A. D. 1544. He gives as the seven heads ;— 1, Kings; 2, Consuls; 3, Decemvirs; 4, Dictators ; 5, Triumvirs ; 6, Caesars ; 7, External Caesars, i. e. of foreign extraction ; 8, the Popes.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3 p 62, p 98 I discuss in my article that the seven heads seen here, in Rev 13, and Rev 17( “8th, which is of the 7” in Rev. 17) probably have an alternate meaning to denote that these heads represent seven empires: five that had already fallen by the time of Christ and then later, John, were: 1) Egypt, 2) Assyria, 3) Babylon, 4) Media-Persia and 5)Macedonia-Greece. Rome was presently in power and that scripture says that one more would follow, making seven Empires in total. Then, an eighth would arise which would be "of the seven", but just who or what is that seventh empire? Most say the Holy Roman Empire under the Papacy, but that never held sway over the Eastern lands or the Holy Land. The seventh Empire of Revelation 17:10-11 must have been an amalgamation of the Holy Roman Empire, under the Papacy in the Western leg and the Ottoman Empire in the Eastern leg. That will then logically follow on to indicate that the eighth empire (Rev 17:11) could very possibly, or rather just as possibly be (partly) comprised of a reconstituted Ottoman empire (Islamic). See my article “The 2,670 Day Prophecy Of Daniel”
Rev 12:5 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.



The Christian body, now headed and represented by Constantine, elevated with marvellous rapidity to a Christian, an avowedly Christian throne.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, p 20
Rev 12:6 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 days.
Daniel 12:7#DanielChapter12

After a passing notice of the woman, (presently to be resumed,) as fleeing towards, 6 and destined to a long long sojourn in, the wilderness, (for short-lived indeed is the association of Christ's true church with the splendors and honors of this world, after this a notice occurs in the prophecy of war in heaven.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, p 20 For more information on the day/year principle that reckons the 42 months/1,260 days as representing 1,260 years of Papal domination, see my article entitled “The 1,260 Day Prophecy of Revelation-The Great Tribulation”
Rev 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,



The antagonist principles intended were evidently Christianity and Paganism : and powers invisible, as well as visible, —the one headed by Michael, captain of the Lord's host, 1 the other by Satan,—appeared to mingle in the conflict. The fulfilment was seen in the seduction of Licinius, through ambitious motives, to head afresh the Dragon's cause against Christianity and Constantine : 2—and then in his two successive defeats and death, and the consequent and (except for its momentary re-elevation under Julian) final dejection of Paganism, A. D. 324, from its high places in the empire, that of the figuration next following ;

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, p 20
Rev 12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.








Rev 12:9 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.



Who a better commentator on it than Constantine himself ? In a letter to Eusebius he writes of " that dragon having been deposed from the governance of affairs by God's providence." And Eusebius further relates, that in a picture elevated by Constantine over his palace-gate, there was represented the cross, the ensign of salvation, placed above his head ; and, beneath, his enemy and that of the human race (viz. Licinius, or rather Satan that had animated him) under the semblance of a dragon precipitated into the Abyss.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, p 21
Rev 12:10 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.



The song of triumph would represent that of the christian body then living, and elevated by the recent events to supremacy in the Roman empire.—The expression " our brethren,'" used in it, in reference to the saints that had previously suffered martyrdom for Christ, confirms this view of the matter. For had Angels been the chanters of it, they would scarcely have called the saints brethren, seeing that they are not united with them by the brotherhood of the same flesh and blood ; 2 but rather fellow-servants

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, p 22
Rev 12:11 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.








Rev 12:12 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.



This .. is to be regarded as a detached and solemn notification by the dictating prophetic Spirit of some woe on the Roman empire, soon about to follow. —Is it asked, What woe ? The answer is ready. Either the Arian heresy raised up within the empire to be the disturber and persecuter of the Church :—or else the Gothic scourge, which first of all external judgments, as we know, fell on the christianized Roman world. 3

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, p 28
Rev 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.



His direct assault on the very vitals of Christianity, and persecution of orthodox and true Christians by Arianism and the Avians, next, and connectedly, his indirect but not less hostile attack on them through temptations to superstition, 3 are the things here mainly prefigured.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, p 31
Rev 12:14 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.



The woman is described as transferred into the wilderness not suddenly but gradually,—her first movement thitherwards being represented as begun soon after the birth of the man-child, for it is then that the first mention is made of her fleeing a wanderer towards the wilderness. The real Church of Christ was evidently, according to these accounts, receding into the invisibility of the wilderness-state.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, p 34-p46 " Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians ; and how I bare you on eagle's wings, and brought you to myself." For more information on the day/year principle that reckons the 42 months/1,260 days as representing 1,260 years of Papal domination, see my article entitled “The 1,260 Day Prophecy of Revelation-The Great Tribulation”
Rev 12:15 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.



What flows from the mouth is doctrine, good or bad according to the man's character. " The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters ; and the well-spring of wisdom as a flowing brook:"'2 on the other hand, " The mouth of the wicked poureth forth evil things." 3 Again floods are a constant Scripture metaphor for the invasion of hostile nations.*

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, p 47
Rev 12:16 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.



So the Arianism of the invading flood, as well as its Paganism, —that false doctrine by which, and the secular force accompanying it, the Dragon had schemed to overwhelm the primitive christian creed and church, and therein Christianity itself,—was seen no more. It was absorbed, as it were, into the soil, and had disappeared. " The earth (thus far) helped the woman, and swallowed up the Flood." 3

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, p 52-p54 The Romish Church, which never knew the predicted wilderness-life, could not for this very reason be the Woman of the 12th Apocalyptic Chapter ; that is, could not be the true Church of Christ.
Rev 12:17 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.

Rev 13:1 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. Event 22-Beast Out Of The Sea With 7 heads and 10 horns, With Crowns on the 10 HORNS

533 AD to 1793 AD AND/OR 606 AD to 1866 AD The crowns are seen to be upon the ten HORNS here in Rev. 13:1, as opposed to being seen on the seven HEADS in Rev. 12:3. This is a powerful and persuasive indicator that Papal Rome, presiding over it's empire of Ten Kings,, is prefigured here near the commencement of the Papal Roman Empire, circa 606AD. That these three visions of the wild beast power (Rev 12, Rev 13 and Rev 17) represent successive stages in the history of the Roman Empire, as first under the government of its seven heads ; secondly under the government of its ten horns, for in the prophecy the crowns are transferred from the heads to the horns; and thirdly as carrying, and then casting off and destroying, the harlot Babylon.

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, preface x, Elliott, Horae, Vol 3 p 62, p98 This is, in my opinion, the first and most well documented sign in the whole Book of Revelation. It is also the only one that is divinely interpreted within Revelation 17 itself. So, if you are filling out your Revelation puzzle, this is the first piece that you fit into place on your chronological time-line, as every single symbol that is given by John has been explained in a very neat and tight fit into the 1,260 year time-line for the rise and fall of the Papacy. This Revelation 17 event most certainly fits with great exactness into the time of the French Revolution, as displayed in Revelation 16, Vials one through five. Given that so much of Revelation 12 and 13 describe this same beast empire, yet in an earlier, more imperial and less religious form, it serves as the foundation post from where we begin to unlock the secrets of the meaning of this entire Book of Revelation. Strong argument is therefore made that the seals and first four trumpets most probably refer to the fall of Imperial Rome prior to 476 AD.
Rev 13:2 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.







The crowns are seen to be upon the heads here in Rev. 12:3, as opposed to being seen on the ten horns in Rev. 13:1. This is a powerful and persuasive indicator that Imperial, Pagan Rome, under its' seven successive rulers, is prefigured here. The linkage of John's ten horned wild beast with Daniel's four beast is complex: probably not complete without inclusion of the Islamic Eastern leg of the Roman Empire, as discussed at the link provided below to my article.
Rev 13:3 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.







I discuss in my article that the seven heads seen here, in Rev 13, and Rev 17( “8th, which is of the 7” in Rev. 17) probably have an alternate meaning to denote that these heads represent seven empires: five that had already fallen by the time of Christ and then later, John, were: 1) Egypt, 2) Assyria, 3) Babylon, 4) Media-Persia and 5)Macedonia-Greece. Rome was presently in power and that scripture says that one more would follow, making seven Empires in total. Then, an eighth would arise which would be "of the seven", but just who or what is that seventh empire? Most say the Holy Roman Empire under the Papacy, but that never held sway over the Eastern lands or the Holy Land. The seventh Empire of Revelation 17:10-11 must have been an amalgamation of the Holy Roman Empire, under the Papacy in the Western leg and the Ottoman Empire in the Eastern leg. That will then logically follow on to indicate that the eighth empire (Rev 17:11) could very possibly, or rather just as possibly be (partly) comprised of a reconstituted Ottoman empire (Islamic). See my article “The 2,670 Day Prophecy Of Daniel”
Rev 13:4 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?








Rev 13:5 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.

Strong
The history of the unveiling of this 42 month revelation as meaning 1,260 years of Papal domination, most aptly running from 606 AD (Phocas Decree) to 1866, were progressively laid out through 300 years of writings by Chytraeus, Pareus, Holland, Fleming, Gill, Reader, Galloway, Faber, Frere, Holmes, Bickersterh, Irving, Burder and Elliott.

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, p348-p357 This section of the work by Guinness also includes details of the events of 1866-1870 that properly mark this time as the termination period for the temporal power of the Papacy. October 9, 1870 is most highlighted.

Rev 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.








Rev 13:7 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.






Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, P1-P158
Rev 13:8 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.








Rev 13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.








Rev 13:10 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.








Rev 13:11 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. Event 23-Beast Out Of The Earth


"Beware of them which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves," 2 almost precludes the possibility of error in interpreting it to signify a body of antichristian Clergy, acting in support of the Antichrist just before
symbolized and described : (indeed the appellation False Prophet is elsewhere expressly given to this second Beast : 3 )—in other words as the Papal Clergy, united under the Pope in his ecclesiastical character of the Western Patriarch ; and acting so as to support him in his different and far loftier character of Christ's Vicar
on earth, or Antichrist.


Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, P159-P160
Rev 13:12 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.



The grand characteristic power of the antitype of the first Beast, i. e. of the Papal Antichrist, was the power of the keys ; a power directly and primarily spiritual, though indirectly also temporal. The spiritual,—in its application to the obedient Roman Catholic,—was that of absolution from sin, the communication of grace through the seven sacraments, the continual offering of a propitiatory sacrifice, the deliverance or solacing of departed souls in purgatory, and opening to them of the gates of Paradise. And of all this the administration was delegated by the Pope to the Romish Priesthood, and to it alone : —first to the metropolitan and chief abbots, by the gift of the pallium or otherwise ; then through them to the inferior hierarchy, secular and monastic ; then to the subordinate monks and clergy. So that even the itinerant preaching friar, or common village priest, was by virtue of his ordination empowered to exercise and administer all the same mighty spiritual power, in the sphere of his village flock, or gathered auditory.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, P174
Rev 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,



And need I remind the reader, how from the earliest date of the Papacy, miracles so called, 2 such as these, have been the accompaniment and alleged confirmation of the ministrations of the Romish Clergy ?

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, P175
Rev 13:14 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.



These Papal Councils answered completely to the symbol of an Image of the ten-horned Apocalyptic Wild Beast, that is, of the Papal Antichristendom and Antichrist : 2ndly, that the Papal Hierarchy and Clergy acted out, in and with regard to them, whatsoever the two-horned lamb-personating Beast (or false Prophet) is here said to have done in, and with regard to, the Image of the Beast.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, P182
Rev 13:15 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.



It is the testimony of almost all the ecclesiastical history of Western Christendom, that the Papal Hierarchy and Clergy did for the most part unite in this predicted object, to make the Roman earth and its inhabitants worship him whom the first Beast or its governing Head symbolized ; i.e. the Papal Antichrist, ruling over Papal Christendom.—

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, P179
Rev 13:16 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:



Nor can I conceive any name more appropriate, and in every point satisfactory, than the famous name (A«Te*vo) Lateinos? , (the Latin man,) of which the numeral value is exactly 666, given by Irenseus. "It seems tome," he says, " very probable : for this is a name of the last of Daniel's four kingdoms ; they being Latins that now reign." '

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, P206
Rev 13:17 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.



A canon of the Lateran Council, under Pope Alexander III, commanded that no man should entertain or cherish them in his house or land, or exercise traffic with them. 3 The Synod of Tours, (just when the Waldenses and Albigenses had begun to excite attention,) under the same Pope Alexander, passed the law that no man should presume to receive or assist the heretics, no not so much as to exercise commerce with them in selling or buying.* And so too, as exprest in Pope Martin's Bull, the Constance Council. 5 How the mass of the Clergy urged its execution in other days throughout the Popedom is notorious.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, P217
Rev 13:18 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.

Depicted to St. John as the subjects of divine sovereign grace, electing them from out of the midst of mere professing Christendom, and then illuminating, quickening, and stamping them with the Father's appropriating mark as his own :—the perfectness of their number, however comparatively small, indicated by the declared mystic number 144,000 ; their preservation, amidst the severest of God's providential judgments on the world they mixed in, ensured by his charge to the tempest-angels concerning them ; and other intimations added to the effect that, even though oppressed, and apparently, at one time at least, conquered by their enemies,4 they should remain in reality indestructible

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, P 255
Rev 14:2 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:



We seem bound to interpret the present symbolic harpings of some similar ecclesiastical rejoicing, at some similar purification, reconstruction, or re-dedication of the mystical temple, or Church, during the Popedom.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, P 261
Rev 14:3 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.



That none but the converted and illuminated by the Spirit of God could rightly understand the Gospel, or belong to the kingdom of the Lord Jesus. 5

Rev 14:6 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, EVENT 24-Angel Sent With The Everlasting Gospel-Great Revival 1560-1790
Strong 1560 AD to 1790 AD Isaac Newton said most correctly, “An Angel must fly through the midst of heaven with the everlasting gospel to preach to all nations BEFORE BABYLON FALLS,” This was fulfilled in the time of the Great Revival of Zinzendorf, Wesley, Whitfield, and Edwards, all of which followed the going forth of the mass publication of the Geneva Bible, which, for the first time, put God's word into the hands of the common man.

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, p263, Geneva Bible, 1560 Edition This must occur before the pouring of the vials if we are to accept that Revelation lays events out in Chronological order. I have dated the start of this event with the initial publication of the Geneva Bible in 1560, which with its' 1.5 million bibles published probably did as much to carry forth the truth of the gospel as any human preacher.
Rev 14:7 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.



A symbol this which (as before said, seems only explicable of the fact of the Reformed Protestant Church opening wide its gates, so as never before, in invitation to the multitudes without its pale ; and with signs concomitant very striking and manifest of God's truth and presence resting within it, at once its characteristic and its defence.,,the statement made in it of " the hour of God's judgment having come," fixed its chronology to the seventh Trumpet

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, P 405
Rev 14:8 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.







This clearly affixes the going forth of the eternal gospel as just prior to the Fall of Babylon, which commenced in earnest at the French Revolution.
Rev 14:9 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,


Future A prefiguration which seems to me to require, in order to its fulfilment, 1st, a sufficiently general agreement among Christ's faithful Protestant seiTvants, as to what is meant both by the Beast and the Beast's Image, to give weight to the judgment hence denounced against their worshippers : 2ndly, a general and strong impression among them, as to the punishment of such as might worship or obey the one, and the other, being a punishment by fire, and that as imminent as terrible : 3rdly, a public and notorious outcry of warning to this effect throughout European Christendom, with its vast colonial dependencies.—And thus we are forced to regard the symbol as hitherto unfulfilled.^

Elliott, Horae, Vol 4, P 4
Rev 14:10 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:








Rev 14:11 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.








Rev 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.








Rev 14:13 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.


Future I incline to think, and indicated, the near approach of the grand epoch of blessedness predicated in Scripture of departed saints : I mean the blessedness of their reward and joy at Christ's coming, lor it is the imminent nearness of a judgment according to works, in this case of reward.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 4, P 6
Rev 14:14 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.








Rev 14:15 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.
Mat. 13:38-43
Future I find myself forced to view the harvest as one of judgment. 1st, the circumstance of its being called the harvest of the earth ^ strikingly points to this conclusion : the term earth being always, as Jerome observes, used in the Apocalypse in a had sense ; and the saints noted in it as not of an earthly citizenship, but heavenly.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 4, P 9 The word “ripe”, as the KJV renders it, is probably better rendered “dried up”. Hence, this is probably not a living harvest but a harvest of dried up branches that have been cut off. " rather dried up in preparation for burning^ than white in preparation for harvest." Elliott, Horae, Vol 4, p 11
Rev 14:16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.








Rev 14:17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.








Rev 14:18 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.



The vine to be gathered was called " the vine of the earth: and designated, I imagine, first and chiefly, the ecclesiastical body and church of Antichristendom ; inclusive, however, of its chief secular supporters also.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 4, P 13
Rev 14:19 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.








Rev 14:20 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 furlongs.

Rev 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.



These vials of wrath were not poured out until the Witnesses (Vaudois and Albigenses) had finished their witness, also after the angel had gone forth with the everlasting gospel


This is, in my opinion, the first and most well documented sign in the whole Book of Revelation. It is also the only one that is divinely interpreted within Revelation 17 itself. So, if you are filling out your Revelation puzzle, this is the first piece that you fit into place on your chronological time-line, as every single symbol that is given by John has been explained in a very neat and tight fit into the 1,260 year time-line for the rise and fall of the Papacy.

Given that so much of Revelation 12 and 13 describe this same beast empire, yet in an earlier, more imperial and less religious form, it serves as the foundation post from where we begin to unlock the secrets of the meaning of this entire Book of Revelation. Strong argument is therefore made that the seals and first four trumpets most probably refer to the fall of Imperial Rome prior to 476 AD.
Rev 16:2 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. EVENT 26-1st Vial
Strong 1755 AD to 1815 AD Elliott said the 1st Vial was “that tremendous outbreak of social and moral evil, of democratic fury, atheism, and vice, which characterized the French Revolution (1755-1815) A century before the French Revolution Sir Isaac Newton anticipated that the prevalence of infidelity would in all probability be an instrument in the hand of God for the overthrow of the tyrannical supremacy of the Church of Rome.

Strong 1793 AD to 1815 AD Sea turned to blood...Elliott and other interpreters consider the sphere of this judgement was a maritime one; on the maritime power, commerce and colonies of Papal Christendom. (1793-1815)

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, p264
Rev 16:4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. EVENT 28-3rd Vial
Strong 1792 AD to 1800 AD Albert Barnes notices that four points as to this vial are clear: (i) "That it would succeed the first mentioned, (2) That it would occur in a region where there had been persecution (3) It would be in a country of streams, and rivers, and fountains. (4) It would be a just retribution for the bloody persecutions which had occurred there." 1792-1800 Napoleonic wars in Sardinia, Austria, Northern Italy, Slaughters in papal lands watered by the Alpine fountains and streams, and by the boundary rivers, the Rhine and Upper Danube, followed.

It seems to me this vial may still be pouring. Guinness, Elliott, Barnes and others give nothing to distinguish this terrible loss of life from that which came later

Strong 1793 AD to ? The fifth vial is poured out on " the seat of the beast." "We have already seen," says Elliott, "how in the Revolution the Romish clergy suffered. Their means of support was withdrawn by the abolition of tithes, the confiscation of the Church lands, and the destruction of monastic houses. This was followed by the national abolition of the Romish religion, and the razing the churches to the ground. So was the whole French ecclesiastical establishment broken up. Twenty-four thousand of the clergy were massacred with horrid atrocities ; the terrified remnant fled.

Rev 16:13 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.



Edwards and Barnes say these are Heathenism, Popery and Mohammedanism. Elliott and others say these are Dragon, Beast and False Prophet: 1)Satan as inspiring infidelity and immorality,.the Dragon of Rev.12 2)The Papacy-the eight head of the revived wild beast power of Rev. 13 and 3)an apostate priesthood, such as minister to the Beast in Rev. 13

Here, you can SEE the dates of when these events took place, as well as reference sources in various writings. I hold the view that several of the vials are still pouring...something the Historicist writers could not have foreseen 110 to 160 years ago.








Rev 17:1 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:


1793 AD to 1810 AD Interpreted by Historical Bible expositors as meaning that the whore is signifying the city of Rome and Papal Rome and her Empire..the many waters are interpreted as peoples, multitudes, nations and tongues, as shown during the time of her collapse, when the peoples she rode upon turned upon her and devoured her.

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, preface viii This is, in my opinion, the first and most well documented sign in the whole Book of Revelation. It is also the only one that is divinely interpreted within Revelation 17 itself. So, if you are filling out your Revelation puzzle, this is the first piece that you fit into place on your chronological time-line, as every single symbol that is given by John has been explained in a very neat and tight fit into the 1,260 year time-line for the rise and fall of the Papacy. This Revelation 17 event most certainly fits with great exactness into the time of the French Revolution, as displayed in Revelation 16, Vials one through five. Given that so much of Revelation 12 and 13 describe this same beast empire, yet in an earlier, more imperial and less religious form, it serves as the foundation post from where we begin to unlock the secrets of the meaning of this entire Book of Revelation. Strong argument is therefore made that the seals and first four trumpets most probably refer to the fall of Imperial Rome prior to 476 AD.
Rev 17:2 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.



That these three visions of the wild beast power (Rev 12, Rev 13 and Rev 17) represent successive stages in the history of the Roman Empire, as first under the government of its seven heads ; secondly under the government of its ten horns, for in the prophecy the crowns are transferred from the heads to the horns; and thirdly as carrying, and then casting off and destroying, the harlot Babylon.

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, preface x
Rev 17:3 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. EVENT 33-The Woman, sitting on the Scarlet Beast, having 7 heads and 10 horns


The color here ascribed to the Beast from the abyss is purple-red or scarlet, the usual color of the trappings of horses or mules ridden by the Popes and Cardinals

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3, P67
Rev 17:4 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:



Further, we identify Papal Rome as the Harlot of the Apocalypse by her characteristic attire. Her garments of purple, scarlet, and gold, adorned with precious stones +and pearls, what'are-these but the-notable and characteristic dress of popes,
Cardinals, archbishops,"bishops and prIests of the church,of Rome. Regarding the Pope, at his feet, as he sits on the day of his coronation on the high altar of St. Peter's, kneel seventy cardinals, attired in long scarlet robes, princes of the Catholic Church, constituting her highest conclave


Guinness, “Key To The Apocalypse”, P88, P71
Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.


1793 AD to Future What is this “Mystery" but the development of that MYSTERY OF INIQUITY" which began to work in the Christian Church in apostolic times ? (2 Thess. ii. 7). Further, she is called "BABYLON THE GREAT." What symbolical title could better describe Papal Rome; for has she not been the worldly, idolatrous, proud, persecuting power in the history of the Christian Church which the literal Babylon was in the history of apostate Israel? What could better symbolise the idolatrous and persecuting Church of Rome than that Babylon which in the days of Jewish apostasy filled Jerusalem with bloodshed, and drank to her idol gods out of the golden vessels of jehovah's sanctuary?

Guinness, “Key To The Apocalypse”, P75 This Roman Catholic harlot is a mother of all the harlot denominations and mega-churches, down to this very day
Rev 17:6 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.



Papal Rome through long centuries has held the pre-eminence as the persecutor of those faithful to the teachings of the Gospel of Christ. She has been all along in her essential and unalterable character a persecuting Church. Persecution has occupied a prominent place in her doctrines, decrees, canons, excommunications, tribunals, trials, condemnations, imprisonments, executions, and exterminating wars. Centuries of persecuting action witness against her. Her laws for the persecution and extermination of heretics have increased in malignity from their first rise down to modern times. Plainly and openly she has declared herself to be a persecuting Church.

Guinness, “Key To The Apocalypse”, P90
Rev 17:7 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.







I discuss in my article that the seven heads seen here, in Rev 13, and Rev 17( “8th, which is of the 7” in Rev. 17) probably have an alternate meaning to denote that these heads represent seven empires: five that had already fallen by the time of Christ and then later, John, were: 1) Egypt, 2) Assyria, 3) Babylon, 4) Media-Persia and 5)Macedonia-Greece. Rome was presently in power and that scripture says that one more would follow, making seven Empires in total. Then, an eighth would arise which would be "of the seven", but just who or what is that seventh empire? Most say the Holy Roman Empire under the Papacy, but that never held sway over the Eastern lands or the Holy Land. The seventh Empire of Revelation 17:10-11 must have been an amalgamation of the Holy Roman Empire, under the Papacy in the Western leg and the Ottoman Empire in the Eastern leg. That will then logically follow on to indicate that the eighth empire (Rev 17:11) could very possibly, or rather just as possibly be (partly) comprised of a reconstituted Ottoman empire (Islamic). See my article “The 2,670 Day Prophecy Of Daniel”
Rev 17:8 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.








Rev 17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.



The city is represented as sitting on seven hills, the well known seven hills of Rome. This is the only DIVINELY revealed sign of the apocalyptic flow of seals, trumpets and vials.

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, preface ix The underlying Greek word, “oros”, translated as mountains here, is used also to denote “hills” in the KJV. “Septicollis Roma” denotes Rome, as labeled as the Seven Hilled City, from antiquity. There can be no doubt that it referred to Pagan Rome and also to Papal Rome but, it must be noted that the City of Rome has expanded now, in 2017, to cover more than seven hills or mountains. Huge mountains are not required here. The Greek word “oros” is used to describe the Mount of Olives.
Rev 17:10 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.

I discuss in my article that the seven heads seen here, in Rev 13, and Rev 17( “8th, which is of the 7” in Rev. 17) probably have an alternate meaning to denote that these heads represent seven empires: five that had already fallen by the time of Christ and then later, John, were: 1) Egypt, 2) Assyria, 3) Babylon, 4) Media-Persia and 5)Macedonia-Greece.

That will then logically follow on to indicate that the eighth empire (Rev 17:11) could very possibly, or rather just as possibly be (partly) comprised of a reconstituted Ottoman empire (Islamic). See my article “The 2,670 Day Prophecy Of Daniel”
Rev 17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.



Seven heads to signify seven, or in a certain sense eight, successive rulers, or successions or classes of rulers. Daubuz attributes its discovery to King James. Pareus, p. 422, as the solution of Aretius, Napier, and Brightman ; each of whom probably, some certainly, preceded King James. Indeed I find almost the same in the yet earlier commentator Osiander j the same of whom I have spoken, Vol. ii. p. 136, and who published A. D. 1544. He gives as the seven heads ;— 1, Kings; 2, Consuls; 3, Decemvirs; 4, Dictators ; 5, Triumvirs ; 6, Caesars ; 7, External Caesars, i. e. of foreign extraction ; 8, the Popes.

Elliott, Horae, Vol 3 p 62, p98 The crowns are seen to be upon the heads here in Rev. 12:3, as opposed to being seen on the ten horns in Rev. 13:1. This is a powerful and persuasive indicator that Imperial, Pagan Rome, under its' seven successive rulers, is prefigured here. The linkage of John's ten horned wild beast with Daniel's four beast is complex: probably not complete without inclusion of the Islamic Eastern leg of the Roman Empire, as discussed at the link provided below to my article.
Rev 17:12 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.



The following is the list of the ten kingdoms represented by tlze ten horns of the Beast, given by Sir Isaac Newton :-I. The kingdom of the Vandals and Alans in Spain and Africa. 2. The kingdom of the Sueuians in Spain. 3. "The Kingdom of the "Visigoths. 4. The Alans in Gallia. 5. The kingdom of the Burgundians. 6. The Franks. 7·The Britains. 8.The Huns. 9. The Lombards. 10. The Kingdom of Ravenna.

Guinness, “Key To The Apocalypse”, P78
Rev 17:13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.



Roman Catholics...were united in the support of the papacy.

Barnes Commentary on Revelation 17:13
Rev 17:14 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.



They would practically do this in sustaining a persecuting power.

Barnes Commentary on Revelation 17:14
Rev 17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.







The peoples of the ten sovereign kingdoms overruled by the Papacy. See verse 12 for their identity.
Rev 17:16 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.



All ten nations threw off her Yoke by 1870, beginning with England and France



Rev 17:17 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.








Rev 17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.



Rome would of course be understood by this language in the time of John, and all the circumstances, as we have seen, combined to show that Rome, in some form of its dominion, is intended. Even the name could hardly have designated it more clearly, and all expositors agree in supposing that Rome, either as pagan or as Christian, is referred to. The chapter shows that its power is limited; and that, although for

Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,








Rev 20:3 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.



Post Constantine Bible expositors believed they had entered the Millenial reign of Christ. This caused them to be very slow about recognizing the gradual worsening of the Papacy as a developing Man of Sin/Son of Perdition

Guinness, “History Unveiling Prophecy”, p58
Rev 20:4 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.








Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

Rev 20:11 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. White Throne Judgement







Rev 20:12 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.








Rev 20:13 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.

Rev 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

I hold the view that several of the vials are still pouring...something the Historicist writers could not have foreseen 110 to 160 years ago.








Dan 2:1 And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him.








Dan 2:2 Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king.








Dan 2:3 And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream.








Dan 2:4 Then spake the Chaldeans to the king in Syriack, O king, live for ever: tell thy servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation.








Dan 2:5 The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.








Dan 2:6 But if ye shew the dream, and the interpretation thereof, ye shall receive of me gifts and rewards and great honour: therefore shew me the dream, and the interpretation thereof.








Dan 2:7 They answered again and said, Let the king tell his servants the dream, and we will shew the interpretation of it.








Dan 2:8 The king answered and said, I know of certainty that ye would gain the time, because ye see the thing is gone from me.








Dan 2:9 But if ye will not make known unto me the dream, there is but one decree for you: for ye have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me, till the time be changed: therefore tell me the dream, and I shall know that ye can shew me the interpretation thereof.








Dan 2:10 The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is not a man upon the earth that can shew the king's matter: therefore there is no king, lord, nor ruler, that asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.








Dan 2:11 And it is a rare thing that the king requireth, and there is none other that can shew it before the king, except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.








Dan 2:12 For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon.








Dan 2:13 And the decree went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they sought Daniel and his fellows to be slain.








Dan 2:14 Then Daniel answered with counsel and wisdom to Arioch the captain of the king's guard, which was gone forth to slay the wise men of Babylon:








Dan 2:15 He answered and said to Arioch the king's captain, Why is the decree so hasty from the king? Then Arioch made the thing known to Daniel.








Dan 2:16 Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would shew the king the interpretation.








Dan 2:17 Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions:








Dan 2:18 That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.








Dan 2:19 Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.








Dan 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:








Dan 2:21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:








Dan 2:22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.








Dan 2:23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king's matter.








Dan 2:24 Therefore Daniel went in unto Arioch, whom the king had ordained to destroy the wise men of Babylon: he went and said thus unto him; Destroy not the wise men of Babylon: bring me in before the king, and I will shew unto the king the interpretation.








Dan 2:25 Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king in haste, and said thus unto him, I have found a man of the captives of Judah, that will make known unto the king the interpretation.








Dan 2:26 The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?








Dan 2:27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;








Dan 2:28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;








Dan 2:29 As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.








Dan 2:30 But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.








Dan 2:31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.








Dan 2:32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,








Dan 2:33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.








Dan 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.








Dan 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.








Dan 2:36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.








Dan 2:37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.








Dan 2:38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.








Dan 2:39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.








Dan 2:40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
Rev 12:3#Chapter12






Dan 2:41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.








Dan 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.








Dan 2:43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.








Dan 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.








Dan 2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.








Dan 2:46 Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him.








Dan 2:47 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.








Dan 2:48 Then the king made Daniel a great man, and gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the wise men of Babylon.








Dan 2:49 Then Daniel requested of the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel sat in the gate of the king.

Dan 4:1 Nebuchadnezzar the king, unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you.








Dan 4:2 I thought it good to shew the signs and wonders that the high God hath wrought toward me.








Dan 4:3 How great are his signs! and how mighty are his wonders! his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.








Dan 4:4 I Nebuchadnezzar was at rest in mine house, and flourishing in my palace:








Dan 4:5 I saw a dream which made me afraid, and the thoughts upon my bed and the visions of my head troubled me.








Dan 4:6 Therefore made I a decree to bring in all the wise men of Babylon before me, that they might make known unto me the interpretation of the dream.








Dan 4:7 Then came in the magicians, the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers: and I told the dream before them; but they did not make known unto me the interpretation thereof.








Dan 4:8 But at the last Daniel came in before me, whose name was Belteshazzar, according to the name of my god, and in whom is the spirit of the holy gods: and before him I told the dream, saying,








Dan 4:9 O Belteshazzar, master of the magicians, because I know that the spirit of the holy gods is in thee, and no secret troubleth thee, tell me the visions of my dream that I have seen, and the interpretation thereof.








Dan 4:10 Thus were the visions of mine head in my bed; I saw, and behold a tree in the midst of the earth, and the height thereof was great.








Dan 4:11 The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto heaven, and the sight thereof to the end of all the earth:








Dan 4:12 The leaves thereof were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all: the beasts of the field had shadow under it, and the fowls of the heaven dwelt in the boughs thereof, and all flesh was fed of it.








Dan 4:13 I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher and an holy one came down from heaven;








Dan 4:14 He cried aloud, and said thus, Hew down the tree, and cut off his branches, shake off his leaves, and scatter his fruit: let the beasts get away from under it, and the fowls from his branches:








Dan 4:15 Nevertheless leave the stump of his roots in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts in the grass of the earth:








Dan 4:16 Let his heart be changed from man's, and let a beast's heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him.








Dan 4:17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.








Dan 4:18 This dream I king Nebuchadnezzar have seen. Now thou, O Belteshazzar, declare the interpretation thereof, forasmuch as all the wise men of my kingdom are not able to make known unto me the interpretation: but thou art able; for the spirit of the holy gods is in thee.








Dan 4:19 Then Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, was astonied for one hour, and his thoughts troubled him. The king spake, and said, Belteshazzar, let not the dream, or the interpretation thereof, trouble thee. Belteshazzar answered and said, My lord, the dream be to them that hate thee, and the interpretation thereof to thine enemies.








Dan 4:20 The tree that thou sawest, which grew, and was strong, whose height reached unto the heaven, and the sight thereof to all the earth;








Dan 4:21 Whose leaves were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all; under which the beasts of the field dwelt, and upon whose branches the fowls of the heaven had their habitation:








Dan 4:22 It is thou, O king, that art grown and become strong: for thy greatness is grown, and reacheth unto heaven, and thy dominion to the end of the earth.








Dan 4:23 And whereas the king saw a watcher and an holy one coming down from heaven, and saying, Hew the tree down, and destroy it; yet leave the stump of the roots thereof in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts of the field, till seven times pass over him;








Dan 4:24 This is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree of the most High, which is come upon my lord the king:








Dan 4:25 That they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and they shall wet thee with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.








Dan 4:26 And whereas they commanded to leave the stump of the tree roots; thy kingdom shall be sure unto thee, after that thou shalt have known that the heavens do rule.








Dan 4:27 Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquillity.








Dan 4:28 All this came upon the king Nebuchadnezzar.








Dan 4:29 At the end of twelve months he walked in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon.








Dan 4:30 The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?








Dan 4:31 While the word was in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.








Dan 4:32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.








Dan 4:33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws.








Dan 4:34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:








Dan 4:35 And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?








Dan 4:36 At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.








Dan 4:37 Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.

Dan 7:1 In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, and told the sum of the matters.








Dan 7:2 Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.








Dan 7:3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.








Dan 7:4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it.








Dan 7:5 And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.








Dan 7:6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.








Dan 7:7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.








Dan 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.








Dan 7:9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.








Dan 7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.








Dan 7:11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.








Dan 7:12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.








Dan 7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.








Dan 7:14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.








Dan 7:15 I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me.








Dan 7:16 I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.








Dan 7:17 These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.








Dan 7:18 But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.








Dan 7:19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;








Dan 7:20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.








Dan 7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;








Dan 7:22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.








Dan 7:23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.








Dan 7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.








Dan 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.








Dan 7:26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.








Dan 7:27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.








Dan 7:28 Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.

Dan 8:1 In the third year of the reign of king Belshazzar a vision appeared unto me, even unto me Daniel, after that which appeared unto me at the first.








Dan 8:2 And I saw in a vision; and it came to pass, when I saw, that I was at Shushan in the palace, which is in the province of Elam; and I saw in a vision, and I was by the river of Ulai.








Dan 8:3 Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last.








Dan 8:4 I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will, and became great.








Dan 8:5 And as I was considering, behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.








Dan 8:6 And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power.








Dan 8:7 And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.








Dan 8:8 Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.








Dan 8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.








Dan 8:10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.








Dan 8:11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.








Dan 8:12 And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.








Dan 8:13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?








Dan 8:14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.








Dan 8:15 And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man.








Dan 8:16 And I heard a man's voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision.








Dan 8:17 So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision.








Dan 8:18 Now as he was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep on my face toward the ground: but he touched me, and set me upright.








Dan 8:19 And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be.








Dan 8:20 The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia.








Dan 8:21 And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.








Dan 8:22 Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power.








Dan 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.








Dan 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.








Dan 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.








Dan 8:26 And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days.








Dan 8:27 And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king's business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.

Dan 9:1 In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, which was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans;








Dan 9:2 In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.








Dan 9:3 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:








Dan 9:4 And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;








Dan 9:5 We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:








Dan 9:6 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.








Dan 9:7 O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.








Dan 9:8 O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.








Dan 9:9 To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;








Dan 9:10 Neither have we obeyed the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.








Dan 9:11 Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.








Dan 9:12 And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem.








Dan 9:13 As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.








Dan 9:14 Therefore hath the LORD watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the LORD our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice.








Dan 9:15 And now, O Lord our God, that hast brought thy people forth out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and hast gotten thee renown, as at this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly.








Dan 9:16 O Lord, according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people are become a reproach to all that are about us.








Dan 9:17 Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord's sake.








Dan 9:18 O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.








Dan 9:19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.








Dan 9:20 And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God for the holy mountain of my God;








Dan 9:21 Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.








Dan 9:22 And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding.








Dan 9:23 At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.








Dan 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.








Dan 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.








Dan 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.








Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Dan 11:1 Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even I, stood to confirm and to strengthen him.








Dan 11:2 And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia.








Dan 11:3 And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will.








Dan 11:4 And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.








Dan 11:5 And the king of the south shall be strong, and one of his princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion.








Dan 11:6 And in the end of years they shall join themselves together; for the king's daughter of the south shall come to the king of the north to make an agreement: but she shall not retain the power of the arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm: but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begat her, and he that strengthened her in these times.








Dan 11:7 But out of a branch of her roots shall one stand up in his estate, which shall come with an army, and shall enter into the fortress of the king of the north, and shall deal against them, and shall prevail:








Dan 11:8 And shall also carry captives into Egypt their gods, with their princes, and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold; and he shall continue more years than the king of the north.








Dan 11:9 So the king of the south shall come into his kingdom, and shall return into his own land.








Dan 11:10 But his sons shall be stirred up, and shall assemble a multitude of great forces: and one shall certainly come, and overflow, and pass through: then shall he return, and be stirred up, even to his fortress.








Dan 11:11 And the king of the south shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north: and he shall set forth a great multitude; but the multitude shall be given into his hand.








Dan 11:12 And when he hath taken away the multitude, his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down many ten thousands: but he shall not be strengthened by it.








Dan 11:13 For the king of the north shall return, and shall set forth a multitude greater than the former, and shall certainly come after certain years with a great army and with much riches.








Dan 11:14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south: also the robbers of thy people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fall.








Dan 11:15 So the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mount, and take the most fenced cities: and the arms of the south shall not withstand, neither his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to withstand.








Dan 11:16 But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him: and he shall stand in the glorious land, which by his hand shall be consumed.








Dan 11:17 He shall also set his face to enter with the strength of his whole kingdom, and upright ones with him; thus shall he do: and he shall give him the daughter of women, corrupting her: but she shall not stand on his side, neither be for him.








Dan 11:18 After this shall he turn his face unto the isles, and shall take many: but a prince for his own behalf shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; without his own reproach he shall cause it to turn upon him.








Dan 11:19 Then he shall turn his face toward the fort of his own land: but he shall stumble and fall, and not be found.








Dan 11:20 Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.








Dan 11:21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.








Dan 11:22 And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant.








Dan 11:23 And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.








Dan 11:24 He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers' fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.








Dan 11:25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand: for they shall forecast devices against him.








Dan 11:26 Yea, they that feed of the portion of his meat shall destroy him, and his army shall overflow: and many shall fall down slain.








Dan 11:27 And both these kings' hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper: for yet the end shall be at the time appointed.








Dan 11:28 Then shall he return into his land with great riches; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do exploits, and return to his own land.








Dan 11:29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter.








Dan 11:30 For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.








Dan 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.








Dan 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.








Dan 11:33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.








Dan 11:34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.








Dan 11:35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.








Dan 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.








Dan 11:37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.








Dan 11:38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.








Dan 11:39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.








Dan 11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.








Dan 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.








Dan 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.








Dan 11:43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.








Dan 11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.








Dan 11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

Dan 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
