Many Christians currently do not study biblical prophecies because of all the prophetic symbols contained in them. But Bible prophecies are there to be understood, if not God will not let it be included in the Bible. You can follow Jesus and The Biblical Timeline to get access to knowledge about everything from the beginning of the world to the last day events of the revelation with characters, events, and prophecies in the Bible.
Bible prophecy is not there to be confused, but to reveal! Just like the beginning of the Book of Wahyu asserted. This is "Revelation of Jesus Christ". So if the biblical prophecy must be a revelation, then God will not write in a way that no one can understand.

Bible prophecies are not open to personal interpretations, because the Bible confirms in 2 Peter 1:20, that there is no personal interpretation prophecy. So, how do we interpret biblical prophecy? What is the best way to understand what this prophetic symbol means?
Let's look at the example. In Revelation 13 we have two wild animals. One that rises from the sea, and who rises out of the earth. Now if we just read this chapter yourself, it will be very difficult, almost impossible to understand what is told. But if we use the rules to let the Bible interpret themselves, then we can find an understanding of this.
So, we need to find out what "animals" are in Bible prophecy. If we turn to Daniel 7, we find a verse there that says "and the fourth animal is the fourth kingdom on earth". And there we have it! Animals in biblical prophecy are the kingdom or nation in the world. So now we know that these two wild animals in Revelation 13 are two countries in the world.
