    Let's not forget Daniel, which is a book concerning the OC Jews and has harmonizes with Revelation quite well....
    Is the BoL mentioned in Dan 11?


    Dan 11:
    9 'And at that time stand up doth Michael, the great head, who is standing up for the sons of thy people, [Reve 12:7]
    10 and there hath been a time of distress, such as hath not been since there hath been a nation till that time, [Olivet Disourse]
    and at that time do thy people escape, every one who is found written in the book.


    Rev 12:7
    And there came war in the heaven; Michael and his messengers did war against the dragon, and the dragon did war, and his messengers,

    Daniel 7:
    9 I was seeing till that thrones have been thrown down, and the Ancient of Days is seated, [Reve 21:11]
    His garment as snow is white, and the hair of his head is as pure wool, [Reve 1:14]
    His throne flames of fire, its wheels burning fire.
    10 A flood of fire is proceeding and coming forth from before Him, a thousand thousands do serve Him, and a myriad of myriads before Him do rise up,
    the Judge is seated, and the books have been opened. [Reve 11:12]

    Mat 28:3
    and his countenance was as lightning, and his clothing white as snow,
    Rev 1:14
    and his head and hairs white, as if white wool -- as snow, and his eyes as a flame of fire;

    Revelation 20:12
    11 And I saw a great white throne, and Him who is sitting upon it, [Dan 7:9]
    from whose face the earth and the heaven did flee away, and place was not found for them; [Dan 7:9]
    12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne. And there were open books, and one of them was the book of life.
    And the dead were judged according to their deeds, as recorded in the books.


    Kindgdom Bible Studies Lambs Book of Life Part 1

    On that far away Patmos, in august symbol and awesome sign, John the Revelator in spirit beheld "the dead, small and great stand before God;
    and the BOOKS were opened: and ANOTHER BOOK was opened, which is the BOOK OF LIFE: [Reve 11:12].........................


    "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 heads the names of blasphemy. 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. 13:1,8).
    Now, what is meant by this term – THE BOOK OF THE LIFE OF THE LAMB? The wise man said, "...of the making of many books there is no end..." (Eccl. 12:12).
    The book stores are filled to overflowing today with all types of books dealing with every aspect of earthly life. Even in the church world there are books setting forth every kind of viewpoint relating to God, the Bible, doctrine, Christian experience, and church order. However the subject material of most of these books largely contains a message of religious tradition and spiritual death.
    But God is also producing a book – a book containing a message of life. For the past two millenniums God, by His Holy Spirit, has been writing portions of this Book in the minds and hearts of His people.

    I just noticed one the other day. The 2nd beast rising from the land (of Israel) calls down fire from heaven. Its an allusion to Solomon's opening day at the temple. Fires falls from heaven and consumes the sacrifice on the altar. The 2nd beast will be Jewish, as to his human lineage.

    Interesting.
    A similar event occurs in 1 King concerning Eijah and the prophets of Baal [which is quoted from in Luke 9:54]....
    It is assumed that the 2 witnesses in Revelation are a type of Moses and Eliaj

    Exo 9:23
    And Moses stretched out his rod toward heaven; and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and fire darted to the ground.
    And the LORD rained hail on the land of Egypt
    .

    1 King 18:
    30 Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come near to me.” So all the people came near to him. And he repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken down.
    36 And it came to pass, at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near and said.......................
    37 "Answer thou me YAHWEH! Answer thou me!
    and this people shall know that Thou YAHWEH the Elohiym.
    And Thou turn-around their heart back"
    38 And fire of YAHWEH is falling and is devouring the ascent-offering, and the woods and the stones and the soil and the waters which in trench is licked up.


    Luk 9:54
    And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?”[fn]

    Luke 12:49I came to cast fire on the land, and would that it were already kindled!" [Reve 8:5]

    Rev 8:5
    Then the Messenger took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the land. And there were noises, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake.

    Rev 13:13
    He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the land in the sight of men.

    The w
    hip in Nahum 3:2 and John 2:14,15 and the stripes blows in Revelation.
    Nahum 3:2
    A sound of a whip, and sound of a quaking wheel, and horse galloping, and chariot leaping. A horseman mounting. And blazing sword, and flashing spear,
    and many wounded and mass of corpses and there is no end to bodies.........[John 2/Reve 18]


    John 2:
    14 and He found in the temple those selling oxen and sheep and doves, and the money-changers sitting,
    15 and having made a whip of small cords, He put all forth out of the temple, also the sheep, and the oxen; and of the money-changers he poured out the coins, and the tables he overthrew,

    [Nahum 3:2/Reve 18:11-13]

    4127. plege play-gay' from 4141; a stroke; by implication, a wound; figuratively, a calamity:--plague, stripe, wound(-ed).

    Luke 12:48
    The one yet no knowing doing yet worthy of blows/plhgwn <4127> shall be being lashed few. To every yet to whom was given much shall be being sought beside of him and to whom they-committed much more exceedingly they shall be asking him.

    Reve 15:1
    And I perceived another sign in the heaven, great and marvelous.
    Seven Messengers having seven last blows/stripes/plhgaV <4127>, that in them is finished the fury of YHWH.

    Reve 18:
    11 And the merchants of the land are lamenting and are mourning over Her, that the cargo of them no-one is buying not-still
    13 and cinnamon and incenses and attars and frankincense and wine and oil and flour and grain and beasts and sheep and of horses and of chariots and of bodies and souls of men.

    Now this is really awesome.
    Note both Ezekiel and John get taken by Spirit, 1 to Jerusalem, and 1 to the wilderness.

    Ezekiel 8:3
    He stretched out the form of a hand, and took me by a lock of my hair; and the Spirit lifted me up between earth and heaven, and brought me in visions of God to Jerusalem,
    to the door of the north gate of the inner court, where the seat of the image of jealousy was, which provokes to jealousy. [Revelation 17:3]


    Revelation 17:3
    and he carried me away to a wilderness in the Spirit, and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet-coloured beast, full of names of evil-speaking, having seven heads and ten horns, [Ezekiel 8:3]

    All the times I have been studying Revelation, I never realized the "7 stars" were mentioned in the OT.

    Amos 5:8
    Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion,...........

    That phrase is used only 6 times in the whole Bible,
    5 of those being in the NT book of Revelation, and 2 of those mentioned in the Assemblies of Ephesus and Sardis.
    Oh the wonder of His Word!

    Reve 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
    .
    Revelation Chapter 1 Verses

    20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks.
    The seven stars are the Messengers of the seven Assemblies,
    and the seven candlesticks/lamp-stands which thou sawest are the seven Assemblies
    .
    Revelation Chapter 1 Verses

    Reve 2:1
    Unto the Messenger of the Assembly in 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
    ;
    Revelation chapter 2 verse by verse study

    Reve 3:1
    And unto the Messenger of the Assembly 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
    .

    Amos 5:8
    Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion,...........

    Orion is mentioned 3 times in the Bible, 2 of those in Job:

    Job 9:
    9 He made the Bear, Orion, and the Pleiades,
    And the chambers of the south
    ;
    Job 38
    31 “Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades,
    Or loose the belt of Orion?


    Job is mentioned 1 time in the NT:

    James 5:11
    Indeed we count them blessed who endure.
    You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord—
    that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful.


    Kindgdom Bible Studies Job

    The book of Job is written in Hebrew in the style of a poetic drama, or stage play. The first two chapters, which constitute the introduction, are in prose. Beginning with the third chapter and continuing on through 42:6 the form is poetical. From 42:7 to the end of the book it is again prose, providing as an epilogue a few facts concerning Job's later life. What is so powerfully set forth in this book is not the unfolding of a drama full of action, event, or happening. Instead it is a poem in which several great issues that relate to the righteousness of God and the mystery of life are explored by means of conversations between Job and his friends. There is no "movement," except in the intensity of the feeling and thought expressed, until the poem comes to a crescendo with the voice of Yahweh speaking from a whirlwind...............................................

    Yep. Orion's belt is fascinating.

    Orion's Belt - Wikipedia
    Orion's Belt or the Belt of Orion, also known as the Three Kings or Three Sisters,[citation needed] is an asterism in the constellation Orion. It consists of the three bright stars Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka.

    Revelation 15, Exodus 40 and Isaiah 4:

    Revelation 15:
    8 and filled/repleted was the Sanctuary/Tabernacle<3485> with smoke<2586> from the glory of God, and from His power,
    And no one was able to be entering into the Sanctuary/Tabernacle
    till should be being finished the seven plagues/blows of the seven Messengers,
    [Exodus 40, Isaiah 4:5]

    Just as Moses was not able to enter because of the glory of Yahweh:

    Exodus 40:
    34 And the cloud covereth the tent of meeting, and the glory of Yahweh hath filled the Tabernacle;
    35 and Moses hath not been able to go enter to tent of meeting,
    for the cloud hath tabernacled on it, and the honour of Yahweh hath filled the Tabernacle.

    Isaiah 4:5
    then Yahweh will create above every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and above her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night.
    For over all the glory there will be a covering.

    Mountain cast into Sea

    Faith, Mountain, and Sea Matt 21:21/Mark 11:3

    Exodus 19:18,19, Matthew 21:21, Hebrews 12:18,19 and Revelation 8:8....


    Matthew 21:21
    Jesus answering said to them,
    "Amen I am saying to ye, if ever ye may be having faith, and no ye may be doubting, not only the of the fig-tree ye shall be doing,
    but even-ever to the Mountain, this-one, ye may saying,
    'Be being lifted up! and be being cast! into the Sea', it shall be becoming"; [Revelation 8:8]

    Hebrew 12:18
    For ye came not near to the Mountain touched and scorched with fire, and to blackness, and darkness, and tempest, 19 and a sound of a trumpet, and a voice of sayings................

    Revelation 8:8

    And the second Messenger trumpets, and as it were a great Mountain with fire burning was cast into the Sea,
    and the third of the sea became blood,

    Exodus 19:
    18 Mount Sinai was completely enveloped in smoke, because Yahweh had descended on it in fire. And smoke rose like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked violently.
    19 And as the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him in the thunder.


    Micah 7:19
    He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities;
    and thou wilt cast all their Sins into the depths of the Sea.

    Ezekiel 3:
    1And He saith unto me, ‘Son of man, that which thou findest eat, eat this roll, and go, speak unto the house of Israel.’ 2And I open my mouth, and He causeth me to eat this roll. 3And He saith unto me, ‘Son of man, thy belly thou dost feed, and thy bowels thou dost fill with this roll that I am giving unto thee;’ and I eat it, and it is in my mouth as honey for sweetness.
    4And He saith unto me, ‘Son of man, go, enter in unto the house of Israel, and thou hast spoken with My words unto them. 5For, not unto a people deep of lip and heavy of tongue [art] thou sent — unto the house of Israel;

    Revelation 10:
    8And the voice that I heard out of the heaven is again speaking with me, and saying, ‘Go, take the little scroll that is open in the hand of the messenger who hath been standing upon the sea, and upon the land:’ 9and I went away unto the messenger, saying to him, ‘Give me the little scroll;’ and he saith to me, ‘Take, and eat it up, and it shall make thy belly bitter, but in thy mouth it shall be sweet — as honey.’ 10And I took the little scroll out of the hand of the messenger, and did eat it up, and it was in my mouth as honey — sweet, and when I did eat it — my belly was made bitter; 11and he saith to me, ‘It behoveth thee again to prophesy about peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings — many.’
