Revelation is a book of prophecy. Revelation 1:3 proves this. Jesus will destroy this heaven and earth (see Rev. 6:12–14) and will create a new heaven and a new earth (Isa. 65:17 and 2 Pet. 3:13).
Interpretation of the Book of Revelation seeks to explain everything and to prove everything in the Bible. All the symbolic languages are interpreted and are used to prove that nothing is hidden—the four beasts with six wings, the beast with seven heads and ten horns, the woman clothed with the sun with the moon under her feet and upon her head a crown of twelve stars, the sharp two-edged sword, and the battle of Armageddon.
The bottomless pit—where is it and what is it? The last war fought on Earth is plainly written. It was not fought between men. Rather, it was kingdom against kingdom—good against evil (see Matt. 24:7 and Rev. 20:7–10). Everything is interpreted by the Holy Spirit.
