Certainly there is a great deal of symbology in it, and it's all about prophecy.
I've heard the "bear" compared with Russia, and the "red dragon" compared with China. Perhaps.
I think one of the monsters might be Al-Qaeda.
Revelations also talks about a great star named wormwood. And this is quite exciting, because before 1986 there may have been no way to understand this passage, unless you were very good at seeing past the symbols and into the mind of the one who wrote it, knowing that his vocabulary was likely inadequate.
"And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
"And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter."
What is a "star?" It is a huge ball of gas weighing many thousands of times as much as our planet Earth. How can such a thing "fall to Earth?" And a "great" star? Bigger? But "great" can also mean "wonderful" or even "heavy." That's in English. Does anyone know the original word in its language? (Greek, Aramaic?)
A star contains nuclear conversions of light elements. If "great" were to mean "heavy" elements, we might find that Wormwood is about nuclear conversion of heavy elements like uranium and plutonium. And Wormwood in Ukrainian is Chernobyl. The radiation from the Chernobyl disaster of 1986 fell upon a third of planet Earth — from Scandinavia to Central Asia and to the Middle East.
Could this be what Revelation was predicting? Interesting.
