Authorship of the book has been questioned over the centuries, but the prevailing view is that it was written by a man named John of Patmos, a. Another mystery is what exactly John had ingested before he wrote this stuff. Even by Biblical standards, it's a strange book. Spoiler alert: God wins. The book begins with a highly symbolic vision of Jesus Christ had by John while on the island of Patmos, complete with seven candlesticks, seven stars , and a flaming-eyed Jesus holding a sword in his mouth.
Yes, read that again. The letters are to variously commend and rebuke the churches, while referring back to the symbolism of the vision, and contain various prophecies of coming persecutions and of the end times. Christians have different approaches to interpreting the seven churches.
Some focus on them as literal, historic churches , and see the letters as referring to particular problems they were experiencing at the time that Revelation was written. Others adopt a less literal reading, either as different types of churches, or else as different historic ages through which the church will pass.
Revelation begins with a view of Heaven where all manner of beasts and men worship God. In thanks for their worship, Jesus opens the seals  on seven scrolls which release the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, a group of martyrs begging for Judgment Day,  and, penultimately, an earthquake. Finally, on the opening of the Seventh Seal,  Heaven is quiet for about a half hour, whereupon God gives seven trumpets to the angels and the angels begin praying for what?
One of the angels takes a censer filled with fire and hurls it at the earth resulting in earthquakes, thunder, and lightning. Cheers mate! Next, the trumpet section gets its chance for a solo. The trumpets result in a hail of fire and blood destroying one-third of the Earth 's surface, the collapse of a fiery mountain into the sea, one third the seas turning to blood killing one third of the sea creatures, the darkening of one third of the Sun , Moon ,  and stars for 1 day, the falling of a star from Heaven opening the Abyss  releasing a swarm of scorpion-locusts urgh.
In reality , a collision with even a small star would destroy the Earth. On second thought, we can relax. Perhaps the author only meant a meteor or comet. Also, a woman is crowned with stars - or meteors? No, clearly, the author did not know what a star really is. Or maybe it was a metaphor! Yes, a metaphor!

Let's have some carrot cake or healthy lentils. Return to the trumpets. The sixth trumpet releases angels from the Euphrates  to take million Horsemen to slay one-third of mankind. The seventh angel holds off a bit with his trumpet so he can release the really good stuff when we least expect it.
Now things get really interesting as we get into still more hallucinogenic territory.
E-Quake: A New Approach to Understanding the End Times Mysteries in the Book of Revelation
Two witnesses preaching the word of God use supernatural powers to issue forth plagues on mankind, and are attacked by the Beast. They lie dead for three and a half days and then ascend into Heaven. Then that woman crowned with stars is pursued all over Heaven and Earth by that dragon , leading to a battle in heaven between the dragon's forces and the righteous angels led by Michael Bay God would help out, but he's off tinkering with some other, better universe , with heavy metal music playing in the background.
The dragon is thrown down to Earth and drowns the woman with water from its mouth, but the woman grows eagle wings and flies away Mighty Eagle! Then, beasts rise from the sea and Earth to convince man to follow the Beast. Finally, the seventh angel, having had all this time to get his jaw loose, goes all Dizzy Gillespie on us. Upon the sounding of the seventh trumpet, angels pour out the contents of seven bowls at least six of which John must have been smoking. The pouring of the bowls results in sores appearing on mankind, the death of all things in the sea, the seas turning to blood, the sun turning into a red giant red and scorching the earth, the earth being covered in darkness, the drying up of the Euphrates and the gathering of the armies of the Antichrist at a place called Armageddon , an earthquake, and hail falling on Earth wait, under a scorching sun?
After that fun-fest, yo mama Dumah the Whore of Babylon rises up to take power over the Earth, sitting on Fluffy a Beast with seven heads and ten horns this'd make a good movie with Other contenders and helpers. Eventually, the countries controlled by the Kings that worship the Beast make war on her. Finally, having seen enough, Jesus shows up and kicks some Beast ass. The Beast, the Antichrist of the number or , and their followers are thrown into a lake of fire, but only for a thousand years because Jesus doesn't want us getting too complacent.
After the thousand years, Satan makes his appearance, Gog and Magog get into some kind of battle Revelation —8 but God having finally finished that other universe full of reasonable individuals shows up and devours Satan with a flame strike spell pillar of flame from Heaven . A new, Borg cube-like, Jerusalem descends from heaven, and we all are assimilated live happily ever after although extended therapy sessions may be required, which would not be at all necessary if the angels had played horns.
It is a common misconception that the Rapture ,  an event where God takes all the Christians both dead and living off the Earth, comes from the book of Revelation. In actuality the Rapture is found in 1 Thessalonians Revelation only mentions that , of the Twelve Tribes of Israel will be saved from the tribulations, but 1 Thessalonians refers to all Christians.
Essentially, they're fine with whatever happens to the rest of the world, as long as they don't have to live through it. There are also slightly friendlier people who believe in a rather more egalitarian post-tribulation rapture, wherein Christians will have to live through the tribulation just like everyone else.
Unfortunately, this group has thus far failed to talk any sense into the Rapture Ready Jesus Jerks actively praying for the destruction of the earth. You'd think they could at least throw in a good word for the rest of us.
