In the midst of the 7 year tribulation, the antichrist-
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. -- 2 Thess 2:4

Rev 6:12 - Rev 11:7 (1260  Days)    
  First Half

Rev 11:8 - Rev 19:21  (1260 Days)
Second Half
Rev 11:3 (2 witnesses testify 1260 days)

Rev 11:2 (Jerusalem trodden 42 months)

Rev 12:14 (Israel in wilderness 3.5 years)

Rev 13:5 (antichrist continues 42 months)

Rev 12:6 woman (Israel) in wilderness 1260 days
Since the "testimony of Jesus is the spirit (key) of prophecy" (Rev 19:10), what did Jesus say?  Jesus said, When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)...For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.    -- Matthew 24:15,21
Now read  He shall confirm the covenant with many for ONE WEEK: and in the MIDST of the WEEK he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even unto the consummation...-- Daniel 9:27  
There we have the KEY, the antichrist is in the temple in the MIDST of the week.  We can take this and make sense out of the chronology of the trumpet judgments.  We can start with those related to the antichrist (knowing he appears in the temple in the middle) and work forward and backward from there.  We already know the witnesses testify for 1260 days and that they are killed by the antichrist.
And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
-- Revelation 11:3

2 Thes 2:4
Antichrist (from the bottomless pit) kills the witnesses
Rev 11:7
Bodies lie in street for 3.5 days
Rev 11:8-9

Dan 9:27
Witnesses rise from the dead at the time of the
2nd woe (6th trumpet)
Rev 11:11-14
6th trumpet is 3.5 days after mid-point
Great earthquake, 10th of city fell
7000 die
5th trumpet Rev 9:2-12 (1st woe)
(Locusts that torment men for 5 months)
This must occur in the first half of the tribulation.
This could well mean that the 1st woe starts
exactly 5 months before the midpoint. But, since it lasts
5 months and precedes the 6th trumpet, it must be
at least 5 months before the midpoint.

Since trumpets 1-4 precede the 5th, all trumpets are in the first half including:
1st Trumpet Rev 8:7 hail and fire mingled with blood  1/3 trees and all green grass Burned               
2nd Trumpet Rev 8:8 "mountain" cast into sea         burning  with fire.  1/3 of sea is blood                                  
Rev 8:9 1/3 creatures and ships
(sounds like a nuclear war)
3rd trumpet Rev 8:10  great star burning as a lamp 1/3 waters made bitter
(sounds like nuclear fallout)
4th trumpet Rev 8:12 1/3 of moon, sun, stars smitten darkened, day shone not 1/3
(sounds like a nuclear cloud)
5th trumpet was covered above
(this is the last judgment of the first half)

Israel now flees to the wilderness 1260 days
Rev 12:6
Satan cast out of heaven
Rev 12:9

Rev 12:12 3rd woe (7th trumpet) - Intro to the vials

All that follows will be the Vial Judgments
Note: the antichrist confirmed the covenant at the beginning
of Daniel's 70th week.         
Rev 13
Rev 13 - The Reign of Antichrist
Rev 13:5 42 months
The rise of the false prophet, the marking system, and
forced worship.
The 3rd woe is the anger of the  cast-out Satan who
begins the program of persecution in the  person of
the antichrist and the false prophet.
Rev 13:7,15
The antichrist presents himself as God perhaps after
a resurrection at the midpoint.  Resurrection is
speculative somewhat.  He does come out of the "bottomless pit" at the midpoint. See Rev 11:7.
