According to Wikipedia, early Church tradition dates the Book of Revelation to end of the the reign of emperor Domitian (81–96), or some time in the early to middle 90s, and most modern scholars agree.

In the original Hebrew there is no definite article before the word "destroyer" or "craftsman." The Hebrew is בָּרָ֥אתִי מַשְׁחִ֖ית לְחַבֵּֽל not בָּרָ֥אתִי הַמַשְׁחִ֖ית לְחַבֵּֽל.

(I'm sure there is a technical term for this - equivocation? - but I don't know what it is.) You are suggesting, I think, that if the definite ...
