Re Gold, Furnace, Smoke.

During my work with telex I got used to using short sentences, = sometimes the meaning is not clear. More words are needed for comments on allegory. Therefore, now copy-pasted full verse, not a portion - pls read context.

* Gold. Revelation 3:18 (KJV) 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

* Smoke of Furnace. Rev. 9:2. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit =
(Furnace = Pyr'amid, = fire in the middle).

* Air-power. 9:3&9 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. (helicopter with sting? missile)

Some years back I had read a commentary on Revelation, published by Jehovah Witnesses from their NY HQ. It was a 200 page book with red cover, inside there were illustrations and pictures & detailed explanations with corresponding verses. Very educative.
