No DeAngelo, YOU REALLY don't understand, WHO was ADDRESSED - the church of(at) SMYRNA - where is that? And when was that letter(Revelation) read there? Reader/Audience relevance - look it up.<quoted text>
U don't understand, Revelation reveals the last days. It was revealed to John. Yes, he received the revelation long, long ago but it was about things that were to come before the return of the Lord.
Again, you are bereft(that word again) of proper hermeneutics for the art and science of biblical interpretation. You seek to shoe horn scripture to fit your presupposition.
