Revelation Chapter 10
4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

Revelation Chapter 10 Bible commentary...
The Angel of the covenant presents a little open book, which is followed with seven thunders. (1-4) At the end of the following prophecies, time should be no more. (5-7) A voice directs the apostle to eat the book; (8-10) and tells him he must prophesy further. (11)1-7 The apostle saw another representation. The person communicating this discovery probably was our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, or it was to show his glory. He veils his glory, which is too great for mortal eyes to behold; and throws a veil upon his dispensations. A rainbow was upon his head; our Lord is always mindful of his covenant. His awful voice was echoed by seven thunders; solemn and terrible ways of discovering the mind of God. We know not the subjects of the seven thunders, nor the reasons for suppressing them. There are great events in history, perhaps relating to the Christian church, which are not noticed in open prophecy. The final salvation of the righteous, and the final success of true religion on earth, are engaged for by the unfailing word of the Lord. Though the time may not be yet, it cannot be far distant. Very soon, as to us, time will be no more; but if we are believers, a happy eternity will follow: we shall from heaven behold and rejoice in the triumphs of Christ, and his cause on earth.
8-11 Most men feel pleasure in looking into future events, and all good men like to receive a word from God. But when this book of prophecy was thoroughly digested by the apostle, the contents would be bitter; there were things so awful and terrible, such grievous persecutions of the people of God, such desolations in the earth, that the foresight and foreknowledge of them would be painful to his mind. Let us seek to be taught by Christ, and to obey his orders; daily meditating on his word, that it may nourish our souls; and then declaring it according to our several stations. The sweetness of such contemplations will often be mingled with bitterness, while we compare the Scriptures with the state of the world and the church, or even with that of our own hearts.

It 's the world. Every people joined up in their new one world religion and she 's a fancy one with one in charge who they think is Jesus. Why not he can bring lightning from the sky and will bring peace to earth, a false peace and they find that out at the 7th trump.

First...put out of your thoughts about Rome.The mountains which the woman sits on are kingdoms.Read Isaiah,Ezekiel,Daniel,Joel...all the Old Testament prophets.The Bible...the WHOLE BIBLE ...is Israel,Jewish centered.Not Rome,not America,not Europe,not Russia,not China.......it all centers around Jerusalem and Israel.Mountains are kingdoms.

Pardon my ignorance, I 've been trying to read this book for a while and only slowly getting a feel for it, but could the angel in verse 1 be see as being a vision that could be likened to the interpretation of the statue in Nebuchadnezzar 's dream in Daniel 2? It seems to me as though the head could represent the covenant made with Noah in Genesis 9 and the feet be the day of the Lord in 2 Peter 3.
