Far from representing the imminent end of the world, I believe that the Book of Revelation which ends the Bible represents the fall of Rome, the end of the ancient world, and the establishment of Christendom.
It states that the seven heads of the beast are seven hills - these are the seven hills of Rome.
The ten horns are Roman Emperors.
The three little horns are the Triumvirate.
The blasphemy is that Caesar is a god.
The cavalry are the barbarian hoards - the Vandals, the Visigoths - who destroyed Rome.
The Christians are then given thrones - the thrones of Europe - following Constantine: Charlemaine, the Christian kings of England and Germany.....
So there is no need to fear the end, it has already happened.
It was imminent at the time of Jesus.
And it established the Age of Pisces.
We are now leaving the Age of Pisces and entering the Age of Aquarius.
But there is no need to fear war, although there is always conflict between the old and the new.
Pray then that we can achieve the transition without violence.
