I'd be more than glad to, 4WD.
As you likely believe, John of Patmos was instructed by God to record ALL details of the bizarre vision that he had. And I think that we can all agree that John of Patmos did a pretty good job of doing that. As a result of the Church fathers deciding to include the Book of Revelation as the End Times book of the Christian Bible, the Book of Revelation has become, perhaps, the most confusing and controversial book of the Christian Bible to interpret as far as its intended meaning. In fact, in March, 1989, with my knowledge of the fulfillment of Matthew 24:29 in 1999, I decided to open up the Book of Revelation to see what "bad" things were supposed to take place before the fulfillment of Matthew 24:29 in 1999 and I quickly stopped and became fixated on Chapter 11 of Revelation and intuitively realized that the 1,260 days mentioned in Rev. 11:3 would take place between, roughly, September, 1992 through March, 1996. And, of course, at least one of those Two Witnesses necessarily needed to be an informed Christian astronomer living at that time in March, 1989.
The following May, 1990, I was frustrated with God and I asked a very learned man a question out of great anger, "WHY......was Revelation WRITTEN??!!!"
And this man told me, "It was written for certain person(s) to interpret."
My response was, "Huh! I wonder who it was written for?" And my thought at the time that it was written for some kind of 'church people'.
It would be one month later, in June, 1990, when I was asked the life-changing question, "If you are this person, what are you worried about?" when I, as a result, began to once again try to make sense of the Book of Revelation. And six months later, on December 13, 1990, this Antichrist, Armageddon, Seven Years of Tribulation (1992 - 1999) scenario, which I had firmly embraced up to that point in time, began to show some serious cracks. And I began to consider that person's statement that the Book of Revelation was written for certain persons to interpret, which meant, to me, that the Book of Revelation is subject to interpretation.
And with the passage of the following 25 years, today it is very clear to me that my interpretation of Revelation makes, by far, the most sense of any interpretation that I have ever come across. But all of those apparent prophecies in Revelation, save two, that I determined to be meaningless as far as having any predictive value regarding that Last Days, DID serve the very great value of serving as 'placeholders' for ~1,900 years with the Bible (with the Book of Revelation in tow) being recorded and rerecorded down through the centuries until the Bible of Discovery landed in the hands of one of the Two Chapter 11 Witnesses in December, 1988, about 3 months before he opened it up the pages of the Book of Revelation in March, 1989.
