blocking traffic to destination network by port

I am trying to block ALL traffic except when from ports 9100,22,23 to destination network (my WAN): 2 networks with static route to

Shouldn't this work?:

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -d --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -d --dport 23 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -d --dport 9100 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -d -j DROP

I tried it but it blocked everything on my router and cut off internet access.
Should I but the "DROP" line before the "ACCEPT" lines?

What is the correct command to stop that traffic?

Why? Aren't they executed in order? Why won't it reach the ACCEPT lines first?
