I have to really look at what you wrote as I think I am not quite understanding your statments.. not your problem, mine.. a few neuron to repair from a stroke about two years ago... had it not been heal as it has so far by the grace and mercy of God you would be reading my text as 'eawe wonoe aonwe oaley,.''' along those lines..

Luckily the Bible is a circular book in that when you re-read a spot that left you confused before it should be clearer if you have read certain other passages before the review. Understanding just falls into place using that method, if a part is confusing trying to 'figure it out ' before moving on. The prophecies about the bruise to Satan's head are even small but finding them all is the hardest part.
But in mentioning the many nations.. one is wise to take a look at the Table of Nations as I call it of Genesis 10.. (if I remember correctely) which I have counted as numbering 71... it wasn't until Jacob became Israel was there even a non-nation peoples called Israel.. and that of a more or less genetic line.. more or less.. though often mixed in with other lines... those other gene lines's people could be adopted in.. and become part of Israel.. and after a few generations pretty much a part of the so called genetic line of Jacob Israel...

There is a better reference that takes the whole chapter but can be summed up in just a few verses from the whole passage.
And all the kings of the north,
far and near,
one with another,
and all the kingdoms of the world,
which are upon the face of the earth:
and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them.
And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth:
they shall not be lamented,
they shall be dung upon the ground.
At any rate.. many people seem to totally space off Genesis Ten... Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27972246
Why would that be?
And as to that Rev 11:9 it is in reference as to location the city of Jerusalem.. a certain incarnation of that City.. remembering it had been totally leveled by teh Roman Armies.. so what we have now is a different incarnation as it were of Jerusalem.. which at the moment is a very very worldly place... and definitely not the New Jerusalem that comes down out of heaven.. yet in the future at least future from the time of this post.

Luke:21:12-24 covers a period of time from the cross until 70AD and the start of a period called 'the time of the Gentiles', Re:11 mentions that same period of time as having 42 months to run. That period is measured from when the two witnesses are started and the two witnesses protect Jerusalem until the day they die. In those 3 1/2 days Satan and the Beast have control of Jerusalem and in those few days they plant the image of Re:13 in a (hastily made) temple where a throne they brought with them is put into place.
From the time og the end of the 2nd woe until the end of the 3rd woe is the same day. Since resurrection is also part of that same day the end of the vials only represents the completion of all things associated with the bruise to Satan's head as mentioned in Ge:3:15. All things associated with the bruise to the heel was completed when Jesus said, "It is finished." moments before He died.
And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air;
and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven,
from the throne,
It is done.
