I would amend this by saying that most
of it is symbolic.
Certain key points are being expressed, but they are being expressed symbolically.
They include the point that when the church comes under threat, God will come to its aid, and that in the end God will overthrow the powers of the
world and replace this world with a different kind of world.
f the cataclysmic events...God is FOR us not against us
A lot of people miss the point about the cataclysmic events.
In fact the cataclysmic events described are related to the fact that God is "FOR" his church.
They are directed against those who are against his church..
They express God in action against the bullies.
Whether it is true that God is "FOR us" depends on whether you belong to God's church or to the bullies.
This wasn't written for "the end times of the world"
At the end of the narrative this world comes to an end and is replaced by another kind of world, ruled by God alone..
This point is meant seriously and literally, even if the visual details are not meant literally.
Therefore in that sense it is about the "end-times"
