Revelation is the book of battles in the New Testament.  In twenty-two chapters, the words “to war” and “to make war” are used fifteen times!  These words are found in all of the rest of the New Testament fourteen times.  Two hundred and thirty-eight New Testament chapters use “to make war” and “to war” fourteen times, while the twenty-two chapters of Revelation  employ them fifteen times.  This certainly indicates a purpose deeper than meets the eye.  None of these words appear in the four Gospels or in the Epistles of John.  Yet the content of Revelation seems to be one of warfare.  So, once we understand the following: “though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh; for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” – once we understand the nature of this warfare in REVELATION as personal warfare in our growth in Christ that takes place in the mind, all the carnal, traditional interpretations of Revelation are turned upside down.

  Eventually, I will be writing an article on all the symbols in Revelation
