Laodicea, write this:
" 'The Amen, the faithful and true witness, the source of God's creation, says this:
Then I saw a mighty angel who proclaimed in a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?"
I looked again and heard the voices of many angels who surrounded the throne and the living creatures and the elders. They were countless in number,
After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth so that no wind could blow on land or sea or against any tree.  Then I saw another angel come up from the East, holding the seal of the living God. He cried out in a loud voice to the four angels who were given power to damage the land and the sea,
All the angels stood around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They prostrated themselves before the throne, worshiped God,
And I saw that the seven angels who stood before God were given seven trumpets.
 Another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a gold censer. He was given a great quantity of incense to offer, along with the prayers of all the holy ones, on the gold altar that was before the throne.  The smoke of the incense along with the prayers of the holy ones went up before God from the hand of the angel.  Then the angel took the censer, filled it with burning coals from the altar, and hurled it down to the earth. There were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake.
 The seven angels who were holding the seven trumpets prepared to blow them.
When the second angel blew his trumpet, something like a large burning mountain was hurled into the sea. A third of the sea turned to blood,
When the third angel blew his trumpet, a large star burning like a torch fell from the sky. It fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water.
When the fourth angel blew his trumpet, a third of the sun, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them became dark. The day lost its light for a third of the time, as did the night.
 Then I looked again and heard an eagle flying high overhead cry out in a loud voice, "Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth from the rest of the trumpet blasts that the three angels are about to blow!"
[9:1] Then the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. It was given the key for the passage to the abyss.
They had as their king the angel of the abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek
Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the (four) horns of the gold altar before God,  telling the sixth angel who held the trumpet, "Release the four angels who are bound at the banks of the great river Euphrates."  So the four angels were released, who were prepared for this hour, day, month, and year to kill a third of the human race.
Then I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven wrapped in a cloud, with a halo around his head; his face was like the sun and his feet were like pillars of fire.
Then the angel I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven
At the time when you hear the seventh angel blow his trumpet, the mysterious plan of God shall be fulfilled, as he promised to his servants the prophets."
 Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me again and said, "Go, take the scroll that lies open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land."  So I went up to the angel and told him to give me the small scroll. He said to me, "Take and swallow it. It will turn your stomach sour, but in your mouth it will taste as sweet as honey."
Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet. There were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdom of the world now belongs to our Lord and to his Anointed, and he will reign forever and ever."
Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. The dragon and its angels fought back,
The huge dragon, the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world, was thrown down to earth, and its angels were thrown down with it.
Then I saw another angel flying high overhead, with everlasting good news to announce to those who dwell on earth, to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people.
A second angel followed, saying:
"Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great,
that made all the nations drink
the wine of her licentious passion."
 A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice, "Anyone who worships the beast or its image, or accepts its mark on forehead or hand,  will also drink the wine of God's fury, poured full strength into the cup of his wrath, and will be tormented in burning sulfur before the holy angels and before the Lamb.
Another angel came out of the temple, crying out in a loud voice to the one sitting on the cloud, "Use your sickle and reap the harvest, for the time to reap has come, because the earth's harvest is fully ripe."
Then another angel came out of the temple in heaven who also had a sharp sickle.  Then another angel (came) from the altar, (who) was in charge of the fire, and cried out in a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle, "Use your sharp sickle and cut the clusters from the earth's vines, for its grapes are ripe."  So the angel swung his sickle over the earth and cut the earth's vintage. He threw it into the great wine press of God's fury.
Then I saw in heaven another sign, great and awe-inspiring: seven angels with the seven last plagues, for through them God's fury is accomplished.
and the seven angels with the seven plagues came out of the temple. They were dressed in clean white linen, with a gold sash around their chests.  One of the four living creatures gave the seven angels seven gold bowls filled with the fury of God, who lives forever and ever.  Then the temple became so filled with the smoke from God's glory and might that no one could enter it until the seven plagues of the seven angels had been accomplished.
[16:1] I heard a loud voice speaking from the temple to the seven angels, "Go and pour out the seven bowls of God's fury upon the earth."
 The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth. Festering and ugly sores broke out on those who had the mark of the beast or worshiped its image.
 The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea. The sea turned to blood like that from a corpse; every creature living in the sea died.
 The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water. These also turned to blood.  Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say:
"You are just, O Holy One,
who are and who were,
in passing this sentence.
The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun. It was given the power to burn people with fire.
The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast. Its kingdom was plunged into darkness, and people bit their tongues in pain
The sixth angel emptied his bowl on the great river Euphrates. Its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East.
The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air. A loud voice came out of the temple from the throne, saying, "It is done."
Then one of the seven angels who were holding the seven bowls came and said to me, "Come here. I will show you the judgment on the great harlot who lives near the many waters.
The angel said to me, "Why are you amazed? I will explain to you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, the beast with the seven heads and the ten horns.
After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth became illumined by his splendor.
A mighty angel picked up a stone like a huge millstone and threw it into the sea and said:
"With such force will Babylon the great city be thrown down,
and will never be found again.
Then the angel said to me, "Write this: Blessed are those who have been called to the wedding feast of the Lamb." And he said to me, "These words are true; they come from God."
Then I saw an angel standing on the sun. He cried out (in) a loud voice to all the birds flying high overhead, "Come here. Gather for God's great feast,
Then I saw an angel come down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the abyss and a heavy chain.
One of the seven angels who held the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came and said to me, "Come here. I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb."
It had a massive, high wall, with twelve gates where twelve angels were stationed and on which names were inscribed, (the names) of the twelve tribes of the Israelites.
He also measured its wall: one hundred and forty-four cubits according to the standard unit of measurement the angel used.
Then the angel showed me the river of life-giving water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb
And he said to me, "These words are trustworthy and true, and the Lord, the God of prophetic spirits, sent his angel to show his servants what must happen soon."
It is I, John, who heard and saw these things, and when I heard and saw them I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed them to me.
"I, Jesus, sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the root and offspring of David, the bright morning star."
