The Order of Events for Reading The Book of Revelation

The Seals are the first view of the end days from beginning to end and the Trumpets are another view of events of the end days from beginning to end. The Bowls of God's Wrath begin with the breaking of the 6th seal and continue to the end.  The Resurrection/Rapture takes place during the 6th seal, at the blowing of the 7th Trump and win the 6th Bowl of God's wrath.

Seals, Trumpets, and Bowls of Wrath   


Rev 6:2 
I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. 

This first rider begins the events of the seals, trumps and bowls of wrath that will follow.  It is like the domino effect. Each event causing the next.  He is a King, who is given a kingdom, as we see by the crown the bow, τόξον tóxon, tox'-on; from the base of G5088; a bow (apparently as the simplest fabric) Perhaps this is the ribbon or bow that a king drapes across his chest. When he goes out to conquer he causes the chain of events to begin that will eventually bring about the end of this age.

 I believe Saddam did this when he tried to conquer Kuwait. That action brought on the first gulf war causing the first four trumpets to blow.  Saddam was a king of the North, and if you have been reading this website starting at Daniel you will understand what that means.  The 7th head of the first beast of Revelation 13 was/is Islam.  (See King of the North Vision of Daniel).   Saddam's part in this remains, whether he is dead or alive. The deed is done. It has began.

The rest of the horrid events of the end days is under the control of this IMAGE of the first beast beginning with the 4th seal/5th trump.  I believe the Image is a revived Islamic Empire in the Middle East emerging out of Iraq (perhaps under a Caliphate) although I believe that it will have begin in upper Syria (see Gog Magog on this website).

(Note: If you have been reading this website in order then by now you know that I am not looking for the type of antichrist that a large part of the church is waiting for. One that will fulfill the 70th week of Daniel by making a 7 year peace agreement, and has the false prophet as his side-kick, etc..
I have never once in all these years ever said that Saddam would make a peace agreement with Israel, nor let the Jews build a third Temple. The Image of the first beast is the revived Islamic empire that will cause the people to receive the mark of the beast, and it will kill those who do not bow down to its laws. Even though Islam is an Antichrist religion and those that worship Allah are antichrist as far as Jesus being the Son of God, I don't call this the "AC" anymore because it causes people to think I am speaking of a man that will make a 7 year peace agreement with Israel.)


Rev 6:4 
And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that {men} would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him. 

This rider is very strong in making war, as seen by the mighty sword that is given to him.  Such as smart bombs as compared to scuds. To me this is the second beast/empire called the False Prophet: This is where the USA/United Nations which represents the whole world enter the picture. America, with the stamp of approval of  the United Nations, went to war to stop Saddam and that action has taken peace from the earth.

Most people believe that the seals, trumps and bowls will all take place within 7 years, but there is no reason to fit it all neatly into 7 years.  That comes from a false understanding of Daniel's 70 weeks prophecy.

In my understanding , the First 4 Trumps were Blown during the Gulf War!
Right now it probably sounds hard to believe, but if suddenly we find ourselves in the midst of the events caused by the fourth seal rider then maybe you will reconsider this.

It is hard for people to believe this because this war took place so long ago. Way past any "7 year count down".

This section, about the first 4 trumps, was first written a few weeks after the end of the Gulf War. The entire time I watched this war on TV it was like the Holy Spirit was saying, Look, open your eyes. The trumps are beginning to blow!

I believe the first 4 trumpets represent the events that took place during the Gulf War. 1/3 of the land is involved because Baghdad is one third of the nation of Iraq.  Please remember that John saw symbolic scenes to describe this and not the actual event.

1st Trump

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 the green grass was burnt up.

In my opinion this represents bombs that are dropped during a war. They look like hail as they fall, but they explode into fire and cause blood to run from the victims that are struck. 1/3 of the land burnt, yet ALL ( meaning "some of every sort";) of the green grasses were burnt.

This was the Gulf War caused by the first and second seals being opened.

Only the middle section of the land of Iraq, (mainly Baghdad), was bombed. Hence this is 1/3 of the earth, or land of a people. The word "earth" in Greek can refer to a country, or an area of land of a certain peoples, or the earth itself.

2nd Trump

Rev 8:8-9 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; 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.

Something like a great mountain on fire is cast into the sea.
The word "ballo" in Greek that was translated as "cast" means: to dump without care.
But as you can see, there is more than one way to translate the word "ballo".

906 ballo {bal'-lo}
1c) of fluids
1c1) to pour, pour into of rivers
1c2) to pour out
2) to put into, insert

An example of the word translated in Matthew:
Mat 9:17: Neither do men put [906 balo to pour] new wine into old bottles.

A great mountain on fire in John's time is a description of a volcano erupting, not just a mountain.
This thing that John saw was LIKE a volcano, but was NOT a volcano. It was something like it. It emitted fire and smoke, and something that looked like blood spewed out of it and poured into the sea.

An oil well that is on fire with smoke billowing out, and the reddish black crude oil being cast out of it couldn't be described any differently than "something like a volcano" to a man of the first century. And that ooze poured itself into the sea as John watched.

The result was that 1/3 of the sea turns like blood: black like the blood of a dead man, as it is described later. 1/3 of the creatures in the sea die. Although this was seen by John in symbolism, we saw the event and the results on TV during the Gulf War when Saddam had his troops release oil and detonated 750 oil wells to create the largest oil slick known to man. 1/3 of the Gulf sea was blanketed with oil and 1/3 of the sea creatures washed up dead on its banks. Many of the boats and ships in ports along the banks were ruined with the oil. During the Persian Gulf War, Iraq deliberately released an estimated 460 million gallons of crude oil into the Persian Gulf.

Notice that the oil slick covered 1/3 of the Gulf Sea. The black area is the water and all of the area covered with red to blue lines is where the oil slick was located.

Take Note: The areas that are talked about in end days scripture, that are actually named, are in the Middle east. Egypt, Jordan, Persia, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, the Euphrates river, Armageddon in Israel, the locust army in Israel, Gog in Israel, etc., etc. as it all centers around the Middle East.  It is logical that the sea being talked about is also within that area of the Middle East, such as: the Sea of Galilee, the Red Sea, the Dead Sea, and the Persian Sea. In this case it was the Persian Sea (Gulf) and 1/3 of the sea turned reddish black with the oil during the war.

Most people think the mountain on fire is something falling from outer space. A comet or an asteroid would have probably looked something like a falling star or a ball of fire to John and not a mountain, or a hill, as the word in Greek is sometimes translated.

3rd Trump

Rev 8:10-11 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; 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.

A great star falls on the river, called wormwood. Wormwood represented bitterness and a curse against a people by God as seen throughout the scriptures.

Deu 29:18 Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the LORD our God, to go [and] serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood; And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse,

Pro 5:4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two edged sword.

Jer 9:15 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, [even] this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink.

Wormwood is poisonous and people die when they drink too much of it. But the star is only being called wormwood. People relate this to radiation poisoning,

which is made from uranium. People who drink the water die, as the Iraqis did. The water had become poisonous to them. A great star is a good description for a missile.

During allied bombing campaigns on Iraq, the country's eight multi-purpose dams had been repeatedly hit. Four of the seven major pumping stations were destroyed,

as were 31 municipal water facilities - 20 of them in Baghdad. Our bombs contain uranium which cause radiation poisoning.
During the Gulf War in January 1991, the US Armed Forces dropped 320 tons of depleted uranium weapons on Iraq.

According to a UNICEF report, by February 1991, medical supplies had reached 1/6 of the normal level of stockpile. Also, UNICEF, in a 1993 report, announced,

"at the beginning of the Gulf War, the number of children dying was more or less 100,000, but after the war, the rate of death has increased 3 times of the number

before the war. And also, due to depleted uranium bombs that were used during the Gulf War, the number of cancer patients suddenly greatly increased after the war.

4th Trump

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.

A third of the sun and moon and stars were struck, a third of the day and of the night are dark.
At the end of the war, Saddam blew up the Kuwaiti oil fields. The smoke caused darkness in the day and night. Remember that this is in a small area, or 1/3 of the country.

Of course we all saw this on CNN.
The black smoke from the burning oil fields caused thick smoke that covered hundreds of miles. It was as if it were night in the middle of the day. They burned for months blocking out the sun in this part of the country.

All this happened in just two months. The chances of the events of these four trumps ever happening anywhere else on the earth are about ten million to one. :) We need to stop just shrugging our shoulders and saying it couldn't have been the 4 trumps! It was.

Note: When we look at the bowls of wrath they are very similar to this, except the wrath involves all of the land. The Bowls of Wrath are being poured out "on the kingdom of the beast". Iraq/Syria is that kingdom and that is why the bowls are so similar to the trumps. The lands of the Middle East will be affected in a larger way, possibly through a nuclear weapon next time. That is why the bowls begin with the malignant sores on the men of the land. These are radiation burns.


Rev 6:5-6  When He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, "Come." I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.  And I heard (something) like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, "A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine." 

A black horse and he that sat on it held a pair of scales  in his hand.  Actually it says he held a YOKE (ZUGOS) in his hand.  A yoke was used to bind two animals together to share a burden.  I do wonder if this isn't the situation right now.  After the second Gulf War America finds itself bound to Iraq. Unable to leave the country for fear of the terrorists taking the country over. Which would be as bad or worse than Saddam.

I believe that the trumps are showing what takes place in Iraq after the war.

The lack of food and fresh water is extreme in Iraq to this day.   A penny (Denarius)  in the first century was wages for a days work. "when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard". "A measure (quart) of wheat for a penny" Matthew 20:2  Meaning  enough for one meal of wheat bread, or three meals of barley for a days wages.

According to the Old Testament a drought on the land harmed the vineyards and the olive trees so the phrase "do not hurt the oil or the wine"  seems to indicate that this lack of food or high prices are not caused by a drought. Most likely this are conditions caused the war.

I find that the seals can also be seen in the Olivet Discourse.  They are called the sorrows or birthpangs that take place before the end of the age.

If we look at those sorrows we can see the brake in time between the third rider and the fourth.

Mat 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ/Messiah; and shall deceive many.  (Muslims declaring Allah God).

Mat 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars:  (Kwiat war and Gulf war.)

.......see that ye be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

 Here is Luke's account, NASB Luk 21:9 When you hear of wars and revolutions, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away."

This is the gap we are in now. The time when the world is creating the Image of the first beast. The first beast is Islam occupying those same lands the three previous beast of Daniel occupied.  The Image is the last days beast under the 8th head from the bottomless pit.   We see the war they will start in the next verse.

Mat 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
 Mat 24:8 All these [are] the beginning of sorrows. ( In other words these are the events of the last days that will lead up to the return of Christ)


Rev 6:8 
I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth. 

Death and Hades are given authority over one fourth of the nations of the world.

ISIS World Map

ISIS 5 year plan for the world.

They kill with;
1. The sword=this is not a normal short sword. John identified it as "rhomphaia"  a Thracian sword, a very broad long sword, of the day, that had to be slung from the shoulder because it was too long to be worn from the waist.  It was used for beheading. 

2. With famine=a lack of food; hunger. When people are driven from their homes and villages many die of starvation.

3. With death (2288) thánatos (derived from 2348 /thnḗskō, "to die") – physical or spiritual death; (figuratively) separation from the life (salvation) of God forever. Some translate this as pestilence.

4. and by the beasts of the earth; Some translate these as "wild" beasts. The Islamic Caliphate has a 5 year plan to take over all of the former Islamic empire which is now 1/4 of the world population and was 1/4 of the land mass of the world.  They are beheading those that will not convert to Islam.  Those that flee into the hills begin to die of starvation and are subject to death by animals. Death does ride with ISIS and belief in the god who inspired the quran brings the sentence of hades for those that join the religion that opposes Christ Jesus.  Is there any other that use beheading?

These are the actions of the Image of the first beast of Rev 13.

This also may connect to the fallen angel Abaddon who comes out of the bottomless pit and Hades with him in the form of demon locusts (5th trump).

In the Hebrew writings  Abaddon is identified as the Angel of Destruction, demon of the abyss, and chief of demons of the underworld hierarchy. Hades -the abode of the dead and the destruction of the soul. Laater called hell by Christians.
This angel from the bottomless pit appears to be the same angel that has authority over the scarlet beast in the end days.

Also the scarlet beast of chap 17 seems to be another symbolic view of the Image of the first beast and it is lead by the one that comes out of the "bottomless pit" and goes to destruction.

Rev 9:1-2
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.  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. ....
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.

Do the locusts represent demon possession?


The Lord said to me in 1999, "The image of the beast began with Bosnia." Meaning it is the first actions that causes the building of the image to begin.

I had not paid that much attention to the Bosnian war. I didn't connect it to the events of the end days because I didn't know  who was fighting who at the time.  But as I began to look into it, a few years after  when the Lord spoke these words to me,  I began to understand that it was Muslim's of that area rising up in an effort to create Islamic states within  Bosnia and followed with the same activities in Kosovo. I now believe He said that because the terrorists were Taliban/Al-Qaeda under Osama bin Laden and told to stay in Bosnia after the war ended, get passports, and wait. They were later told to go to America and take flying lessons. They then flew the planes into the twin towers on 9/11.

I believe the Lord said "The image  began with Bosnia."  to point out to me that what began with Bosnia was the waking up of the old Islamic empire under a new guise, the Image of it's old self.  Through terrorism this image (made up of the Islamic countries)  of the beast rises up again and is primed for when the fifth trump takes place and Abaddon is loosed.   He will make this beast an empire once again under a symbolic 8th head on that beast.

5th Trump
The First Woe

Rev 9:1-2  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.  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. 

This begins a 5 month event called the "time of the locusts" when the Angel of the abyss (bottomless pit) and the demons of hell are loosed from the pit.  Many people see helicopters in the symbolism of these locusts and biological or chemical agents being sprayed from the tail section. But I think this is some sort of demonic possession taking place for the purpose of building an army, and this army will ultimately attack Israel.   This locust army is talked about in Joel as an army from the north, just as the king of the North in the final war in Daniel 11:40. That area is between the two rivers where Iraq is located.  Iraq, along with the other Islamic countries of the area, would come like a storm of locusts from the north, with Syria, Iran, Southern Lebanon, and all the terrorist groups from the whole Islamic world. Libya and Ethiopia attack Egypt and defeat the government, ending it's agreement with Israel. This war will ultimately lead to one country firing a nuclear weapon, bringing on the 6th trump.  I believe the angel of the abyss and the locust will be behind this attack.  I am looking at the king of the North to also be the one God is calling Gog in Ezekiel's vision.

updated  I think I may have seen the 5th trump, but really no way to know for sure since it is mostly in the spiritual realm that it takes place. This event just happened to take place the same year that ISIS started. I had been given a vision years before that was a pretty strange one and when this oil spill happened it matched up with the vision. So that's all I got about it. It was the BP oil spill in 2010. I can't figure any other reason the Lord would have shown me it ahead of time other than it maybe being the 5th trump.   ISIS established on April 18, 2010. Oil well exploded April 20, 2010. On the night of April 20 a surge of natural gas blasted through a concrete core that had been installed. Did all hell break loose for 5 months? Did what came out of the spiritual realm have anything to do with ISIS and how fast they moved and took over and the horrible things they did to many Christians? Those are my questions to myself. 


Rev 6:9 
When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained; 

The dead are given their white robes and are told to wait until their number had been added to and made complete. So during this time, this seems to be the time that the two witnesses will begin their testimony, which ends in the 6th seal,  and also the last of the martyred Christians shall die for their belief in the Son of God before the resurrection/rapture of the 6th seal/7th trump.
I believe we have seen the number of martyrs, by the thousands and thousands, added to this number in the last few years at the hand of Muslim's extremists. It is happening in every country along the old border of the Islamic Empire, parts of Africa, and throughout the Balkans, and even on the Islands of Asia but it is going to get a lot worse once the 5th trump is blown.

6th Trump
The Second Woe

Rev 9:13-15 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 
 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.  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. 

The four angels bound in the Euphrates River are loosed so that two hundred million  horsemen from the east might kill 1/3 of man kind. The rest of mankind DID NOT repent of the works OF THEIR hands.
The riders wore breastplates the color of fire, (shining like fire), hyacinth  (blackish red). and brimstone (sulphurous/yellow)
The horses had the heads like a lion and out of their mouths comes fire, and tales having heads on it, which also kill.  Again, this sounds like a description of demonic beings but some see these as modern vehicles and weapons of war. Like rocket firing tanks of some sort.


Rev 6:12-13 
I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth {made} of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 


A great earthquake, sun black, red moon, stars fall. (At night bombs falling look like falling stars) Sky rolls up like a scroll opening, mountains move. John may have seen a nuclear explosion.

The sky rolls up like a scroll opening.

Just imagine this cloud in motion as it rolls across the sky.

Red moon from nuclear fall-out.

People hide in caves (dens) in the rocks and want the rocks to fall and seal them in for the time of great day of their wrath has arrived. This is the First Bowl of God's wrath. People don't seem to realize that God always uses man and his weapons to execute his wrath.  The first bowl of wrath is malignant sores on the bodies of men.
This is radiation burns and the people go underground in caves and hope survive.

The saints are seen before the throne. "The ones that have come out of the Great Tribulation". In Mathew, the Olivet Discourse it shows the sorrows and they are the last things that will happen before the return of Christ. It say "After the tribulation of those days". This particular tribulation is the time that the mark of the beast is being demanded.   These have been ressurection/raptured at this point.  Followed by the winds of heaven being held back while the 144,000 Jews are sealed.

To summarize the order of events;


*The witnesses go to heaven in a cloud and so do all the dead and living that are His. And in that HOUR there is a great earthquake and a tenth of the city falls and 7,000 die in the earthquake and the rest gave glory to God. The rapture has already happened just moments before so these that gave Him glory after the fact can be read about in Zech 12-14. They are not part of the Bride which has been raptured and the door shut, but will go into the 1000 years as saved and belonging to the Lord. But they will enter the 1000 years as saved, mortal, people with extended life spans. See Isaiah 65:17-66.
The Bowls of God's Wrath
The bowls of wrath begin the destruction of the kingdom of the Image of the first beast/8th head which is really a revived empire of the 7th head.
 The bowls of wrath begin to be poured out with the 6th seal as a result of the nuclear weapon.
The first 5 bowls of wrath are similar to the first 4 trumpets, only this time the war is not 1/3 of the land and sea, but involves all of the land.. This time nukes are involved. In the 6th seal, we saw how the sun and moon are darkened because of a nuclear bomb exploding in the Middle east.
The first thing we see are the effects of radiation from the bomb evident  as malignant sores on men who have the mark of the beast.

1st bowl malignant sores on those who have the mark of the beast. The result ofradiation sores from nuclear warfare that is seen in the 6th seal.

2nd bowl poured out on the sea and the creatures of the sea die because the seabecomes black, like the blood of a dead man, an oil slick.The whole Gulf Sea this time.
3rd bowl freshwater becomes black. This time oil runs into the freshwater also.
4th bowl poured out on the sun and it becomes seven times hotter. Sounds like a problem with the ozone layer.
5th bowl poured out on the throne of the beast. His kingdom became darkened and they gnawedtheir tongues because of the pain.
6th bowl poured out on the Euphrates River and it dried up and the way was made for thekings of the East.

During  the 6th bowl, the demons like frogs are sent out to the kings of the earth to gather them together for the war of the great day of God. "Behold I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his garments, lest he walk around naked and men see his shame.

When you see the Euphrates dried up then knowthe time of the return of Christ is now.

7th Bowl 
there were flashes of lightning, peals of thunder and a great earthquake.The great city splits into three sections (Jerusalem) and the citiesof nations fell and Babylon the Great was remembered before God, togive her the cup of wine of his fierce wrath, and every island fledaway and the mountains were not found and huge hailstones, onehundred pounds came down from heaven on men and they cursed God. Godremembers Babylon and strikes it its last blow. This is when Jesus foottouches down on the Mt of Olives causing the Mt to split which causedthe city before Him to be devastated as it splits into three sectionsand 7000 die. It will never beinhabited again as a harlot.

It will never be inhabited again as a harlot.

Note; The City of Jerusalem will be rebuilt and named "city of the Lord". It will be located about a mile south of where it is now.



Rev 8:1-2 
When the Lamb broke the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.  And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. 

Silence in heaven for about a half hour. Heaven is empty of angels because the rapture is taking place on the earth as the seventh trump blew. Jesus is sending out the angels to gather those "IN Christ" After this we will be behind Jesus,  having met Him in the clouds, as His foot touches down on the Mount of Olives for the last battle to be fought on earth.

(During the Seventh seal, the seven angels are given the trumpets. Remember that I put the seal and trumps together so that you could see what happens as a result of each of these seals being opened. But the seals are one view from beginning to end and the trumps are a view of things we will see on the earth from beginning to end. 

The Seventh seal ends with flashes of lightning, peals of thunder, a great earthquake
Now we are at the end of things. When the seals, trumps and bowls all end together with Armageddon

7th Trump
The Third Woe

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. 

Rev 19 "and I saw heaven open and behold a white horse and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True and in His righteousness he judges and wages war. And the armies which are in heaven clothed in white were following behind Him. Come and gather for the great supper of God. And he saw the beast and the kings of the earth assembled to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army."

The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of the Lord, and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever. The Temple in heaven is opened; and the ark and the covenant appeared in the Temple. Flashes of lightning, peals of thunder, a great earthquake and a great hailstorm.

And He seized the beast (that came out of the bottomless pit), and with him, the False Prophet, and the two were thrown into the lake alive!

Satan is then locked in the pit for a thousand years.
Form this we can glean that the false prophet is also a dark angel in charge of the second beast of Rev.  Unbelieving humans aren't thrown in the lake of fire until the time of the white throne judgment.

The New thousand year Kingdom of God on earth begins. And we shall be with the Lord forever!
