Many church members ignore or find understanding the Revelation to difficult so ignore it.
James, the first line of your O/P, this could so easily be attributed to Genesis.
Man or Mankind, if you prefer, can no more comprehend the end of Man or Mankind than Man or Mankind can comprehend the begining.
Evolutionists and Atheists frequently quote The Bible and attribute the age of humankind as 6000 years, give or take. They will then quote history and archaeology to show the Earth is millions of years old, I accept that.
As an Anglican, accepting The Bible as the bedrock of Christianity, my response to all regardless of being Theist or Atheist, is none of us are able to comprehend The Bible.
Back in the mid 1960's my now deceased Physics teacher asked my Class to define a Metre. Some argued it was 39. something inches. After a debate my teacher told us the correct answer. I cannot quote fully, but, at the time it was a certain piece of metal of certain dimensions in the Science Musium of Paris kept at a certain temperature and humidity. That is all man made and a constant.
The Ark so many Cubits long, what is a Cubit? A cubit it defined as the distance between the tip of your elbow and the tip of your middle finger, but whose? We are all different and by such a definition an allowance has to be made.
Furthermore, take the atomic clock, a modern invention, but to be accurate it has to be adjusted and as such is not totally accurate.
Yes, The Bible gives us times based on Mankind's current understanding. All that Mankind is proving is we do not understand The Bible.
We should, but do not trust in God
