I went through this list a couple of years ago. I found it interesting and helpful. I underlined the verses in the OT so that when I was reading through the OT and ran across them again I could see the OT context and know they were also referenced in someway in Revelation. It made me see how Revelation takes the prophecies of the OT and puts them in order.
There are over five hundred references to the Old Testament in the Book of Revelation. The following is a list of such references, but it makes no claim to being exhaustive or complete.
Some of these references back to the Old Testament do speak of the very same thing as the Revelation. However, in others, the Revelation merely borrows a phrase or motif for the purpose of developing a new area. This distinction should be kept in mind in the study of those Old Testament references.
Two things I have enjoyed that helped with the OT is the list above and reading it from a Chronological Bible. Very helpful!
I've thought about chronological for a long time but never investigated. Wanted to try to do it myself but don't know where to start after say Job & Genesis. Is it book after book in year order or do the chapeters for different book intertwine?
John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
The one I got is the One Year Chronological Bible. The chapters from the different books intertwine. So, for example, you read the prophets during their place in history. I didn't like it as much for the Gospels because it was a lot of repetition of the same events. (Same for Kings and Chronicles. ) But for Acts and the Epistles it was good. You can find the reading plan online, but some days there might be some flipping back and forth between books, so it is easier when it's already laid out.

my mom always had a line that the NT reveals what the OT conceals..
And, when we look at the chronological? I bet there is still a pattern of math from the Holy God Most High revealable, and perhaps even more apparent!! I have always wondered why Job, the oldest book is not in its place according to the timeline. Genesis written AFTER Job? Is that what I am to understand??
For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 1 Thes 5:9 KJV
About Job... My Chronological Bible says that the account of Job is traditionally thought to have taken place around the time of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or shortly thereafter. However, it could have occurred as late as the exile (6th century BC).
Is 26:3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
boraddict: In 4 days we will have two presidents (IMO) and I think the tribulation era begins here. Then at 3.5 years from now is the mark of the beast era and by that time we should have the worst covid that is available; makes the current one a walk in the park.

gs2017: Bora, that means we should be raptured in the next 4 days, is that what you are suggesting?
Jan 16, 2021 22:01:16 GMT -6
Bora: No, the near rapture is more of an exodus (IMO) after things heat up. Then later towards the end of the 3.5 years is the marriage and lastly at the end of the 7 years is the grand finale. So to me there are 3 events that are rapture type.

EnochWalked: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ze4SJJGi_fA "Can the End TImes Happen without a THIRD TEMPLE?" from Nelson Walters, published Jan 11, 2021. For some reason it is marked as an unlisted video, so many people may not have seen it. Sound scriptural analysis.

disciple4life: EW, We know that the priests have already done a full passover reenactment near the temple mount. They have a stone altar on a flatbed, and so it's quick and easy. But there are scores of elements of "End Times". Rapture, AOD, Mark, 2 witnesses?

disciple4life: @bora. I respect people's differrent opinion. Trump would not continue to get the classified briefings, nor would he have access to nuclear launch codes. Bigger point is that tribulation is world-wide event. Needs a bigger trigger than US elect fraud.

EnochWalked: D4L: Good points on the altar (which I think the video covers) and the other elements (which it doesn't). He mentions that the Passover sacrifice probably isn't the (twice) "daily sacrifice", so he doesn't have the full picture yet.

EnochWalked: On the one hand, I don't want people planning terrorist attacks with the app, but on the other hand, I don't want unaccountable businesses making these decisions without a court order, or for plotters to hide their discussions somewhere the FBI can't see.

EnochWalked: twitter.com/Virgin_Orbit/status/1350933162398986240 "carrying 9 CubeSat missions into Low Earth Orbit for our friends @nasa." Similar to the 9 stars of Leo in the R12 sign (although missing the other 3 "stars"/planets for the full crown).

EnochWalked: Technically one of the "missions" contained a pair of cubesats, so the orbiter released 10 separate craft. So maybe these represent 10 horns, and this spacecraft is actually representative of a different woman from Revelation.
