This spreadsheet is meant to be used with the Revelation Puzzle Pieces Series of Articles.  Please go to the Revelation Puzzle Pieces series at INTRODUCTION:  The events here are all future and I will not engage in very much speculaton beyond that which is clearly indicated.  The Marriage Supper of the Lamb is the main event here.  Evidently, it is accompanied by great bloodshed.  I have held to my view regarding the chronological time flow of Revelation  through the first 18 chapters.  I suppose that in the absence of sufficient evidence, I will continue to hold to it, placing the marriage of the Lamb and the Supper of God as contemporaneous with at least some of the events of chapter 20.  It seems clear that these events are likely connected with the final completion of the resurrection unto life.  Some have placed this event as pre-millenial but strictly speaking, scripture merely places it as prior to the general resurrection at the great white throne.  That final resurrection is most certainly post millenial.
Rev 19:1  And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:  Rev 18:20 Future 19:1   Elliott remarks that the Jewish Rabbi's have supposed that the restoration of their people is to follow on the fall of Rome. Elliott, Horae, Vol 4, P46 19:1   Perhaps the first use here of the Hebrew "Hallelujah" during this time of the fall of Babylon refers now to some action of the working of salvation upon the Jews.  
Rev 19:2  For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.  Rev 11:18, Rev 17:1 19:2   We are assured that He will finish this great work.  Though, according to our historical reckoning, He began this work in 1793 at the French Revolution; rooted the Pope out of the governments of the ten European nations by 1868, but then we see the 1920 return of the Pope to the Vatican.  With all of this, though He seems to be tarrying long, He will complete the work.  He will utterly destroy this pyramidical design of the thing called church.
Rev 19:3  And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.  Rev 14:11 19:3   Elliott supposes that an earthquake and volcanic eruption in Italy might be in view here that would utterly desolate Rome. Elliott, Horae, Vol 4, P48

Rev 19:8  And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.  Elliott, Horae, Vol 4, P52 19:8   The bride is clearly marked out as referring to the saints because the "righteousness of the saints" is mentioned.
