No date again, but it talks about CCTV, so I'll guess late 1990's.

So, a modern take on the culmination of the biblical prophecies. I'm not versed on the whole Left Behind parts of the scripture, but it seems blind Steven is one of them.

I'll leave it to someone better versed in that tradition to comment further.

Not quite, I'd say. Steven is using biblical quotes quite out of context, which makes perfect sense in context of the story, as that is a way many people who do use the bible seem to use the bible. But it need not neccessarily make sense in biblical context. Especially the quotes from the book called Genensis. These are from the tale of the great flood. This is considered ancient history. And if there is a prophesy there, then it is: 'Such will never happen again', as that ist God's promise to mankind at the end of that tale.
Relevations on the other hand is indeed about things to come.
