Chapter 1 John receives the Revelation of Jesus Christ for the seven churches or church types on earth.
Chapter 2 Jesus gives His message addressed to the churches at Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, and Thyatira.
Chapter 3 Jesus gives His message addressed to the churches at Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea.
Chapter 4 John goes up to Heaven and writes his commentary about what he sees there.
Chapter 5 The Lamb is found worthy to take the seven-sealed scroll from the right hand of the Father.
Chapter 6 Jesus opens the scroll, the first six seals are opened, the four horsemen of the apocalypse ride.
Chapter 7 Angels seal 144,000 Israelites from twelve tribes to protect them from the coming trumpet judgments.
Chapter 8 The seventh seal is opened - four trumpets are blown - fire, blood, poison water, and darkness on 1/3 of the earth.
Chapter 9 The fifth trumpet brings stinging locusts, the sixth brings a 200,000,000 army that kills 1/3 of men.
Chapter 10 Seven thunders are heard by John but the revelations revealed are sealed until the end - John must give us additional revelation.
Chapter 11 Two prophets of God give their testimony from Jerusalem and judge their enemies for 1260 days.
Chapter 12 John sees a woman with a Man Child and a red dragon who seeks to devour the Child as soon as He is born.
Chapter 13 A Beast comes out of the sea with ten horns and a second Beast comes from the land with two horns.
Chapter 14 The 144,000 brethren are seen in heaven - the grapes of wrath are trodden in the winepress on earth.

Chapter 19 Jesus begins His reign on earth and destroys the armies of the Beast that come against Him at Israel.
Chapter 20 The dead in Jesus come to life - Satan is bound for a thousand years - Satan later deceives again and is judged.
Chapter 21 A new Heaven and a new earth are created - the Holy City of the Lamb's wife is seen in Heaven.
Chapter 22 Eternal affairs in the Holy City - final warnings and free invitations from Jesus and the bride.
