Our article Where is Satan now? goes a long way toward succinctly explaining the Book Of Revelation, which is mostly about the sequence of events of the Apocalypse of 70 AD (i.e., the events that led to the total extermination of the ancient Hebrews who killed Christ), the start of a New Order with the Lord Jesus reigning over the earth, and the eventual end of the world. Still, the following resources can guide you as you try to fathom Revelation in its entirety:
The following two books are by David Chilton. As you read them, keep in mind that a) the author chose to keep the word Jew in his books since the translated Bible unfortunately contains the incorrect word Jew, in lieu of Judahite as it should be – see The word Jew is NOT in the bible and b) the author’s understanding of church is erroneous, given that he was a pastor in the traditional sense. Otherwise, these books are great resources.
Book 1 – Verse by verse exposé of the Book of Revelation – with special attention to Daniel’s prophecies, which were precursors and confirmations of John’s prophecies in Revelation, and which many have distorted since they actually pertained to 70 AD as well and not to a distant future that has yet to happen:
Book 2 – Overview of the above book in a more condensed form:
The following book is a faithful record by historian Flavius Josephus of the total extermination of the Judahite Hebrews (including the Hebrew remnants of the 10 scattered tribes of Israel who assimilated themselves as Judahites) and of the destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem in 70 AD, as prophesied by Jesus in the Gospels and by the Apostle John in the Book of Revelation:
Dr. Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr. revealed that Revelation was written prior to 70 AD, between 65 and 66 AD:
The story of the Ashkenazim is detailed in our article here. However, Jewish author Arthur Koestler wrote a full historical account of their non-Hebraic, Ashkenazic/Khazarian origin – though we disagree with his purely propagandist conclusion on the existence of the state of Israel:
Jewish-born historian Benjamin H. Freedman – who later converted to Christianity – exposed the trickery behind the appellation Jew, which the Ashkenazim (the Khazars) and their fellow coreligionists misappropriated, along with the truth behind the Talmud:

14. Khazaria by Prof. Abram. N. Poliak, Professor of Medieval Jewish History at Tel Aviv University.

Many of the papers were subsequently updated and expanded, and the volume was finally published by Brill in 2007 as part of their Handbook of Oriental Studies series.
In our article All Wars Are Evil. Period we discuss that Christians are commanded by Christ to stay away from fighting any war. Sun Tzu explained in his book how all wars are based on deception:
Our articles Of Healing and Miracles and When Bad Things Happen delineate the many ways mankind endures suffering and hardship, as well as God’s purpose in using them. St John of the Cross, the celebrated Spanish mystic and poet, also explored the subject at length in his book:
In our article Was Shylock a Jew? we prove that Shylock was not penned as a Jew in the modern sense. Professor Emma Smith came to a kindred conclusion in her academic paper:
The Complete Word Study Old Testament and The Complete Word Study New Testament are excellent products, if you can afford to buy them.

The following AMAZON links are for your information only (you can shop around for better pricing, though these books are quite expensive but well worth it):
Every conscientious individual should implement a personal boycott of Israel.
a. Don’t visit it. There’s nothing there to see. All that’s worthwhile seeing is in the West Bank of Palestine – Bethlehem and Jerusalem. So visit the West Bank instead via Jordan. Gaza can also be visited via Egypt.
b. Don’t invest in any company or fund that involves Israel.
c. Don’t buy anything Made in Israel.
