John the Divine is an example of "apocalyptic" writing - a form that delivers a message using symbols, images and numbers. Revelation ; Revelation ; Revelation6, 9.

Its force, "speedily," affords a groundwork, and, it must be admitted, a plausible one, to the praeterist school of interpreters, who hold that the whole range of Apocalyptic predictions was fulfilled within a comparatively short time after the Apostle wrote. Others allude to people, places and events that were very familiar to the first century Christians of Asia Minor. The author of Revelation gave no timetable for future events. No matter how badly human beings have failed, no matter how terrible the wounds sin may inflict on the world, no matter how desperate our situation may seem, God will prevail.
