A clear allusion is one with almost the same wording as its source, the same general meaning, and which could not reasonably have been drawn from elsewhere. A probable allusion contains an idea which is uniquely traceable to its source. Possible allusions are described as mere echoes of their putative sources. Yet, with Revelation, the problems might be judged more fundamental. The author seems to be using his sources in a completely different way to the originals. For example, he borrows the 'new temple' imagery of Ezekiel 40—48 but uses it to describe a New Jerusalem which, quite pointedly, no longer needs a temple because it is God's dwelling.
Ian Boxall  writes that Revelation "is no montage of biblical quotations that is not John's way but a wealth of allusions and evocations rewoven into something new and creative. He sets out a comparative table listing the chapters of Revelation in sequence and linking most of them to the structurally corresponding chapter in Ezekiel. The interesting point is that the order is not the same. John, on this theory, rearranges Ezekiel to suit his own purposes. Some commentators argue that it is these purposes — and not the structure — that really matter.
Beale believes that, however much John makes use of Ezekiel, his ultimate purpose is to present Revelation as a fulfillment of Daniel 7. For example, Ezekiel's encounter with God is in reverse order as John's encounter with God Ezek —28; Rev —7; note both accounts have beings with faces of a lion, ox or calf, man, and eagle Ezek ; Rev , both accounts have an expanse before the throne Ezek ; Rev The chariot's horses in Zechariah's are the same colors as the four horses in Revelation Zech —8; Rev —8.
The nesting of the seven marches around Jericho by Joshua is reenacted by Jesus nesting the seven trumpets within the seventh seal Josh —10; Rev —17; —; — The description of the beast in Revelation is taken directly out of Daniel see Dan —8; Rev —7. The method that John used allowed him to use the Hebrew Scriptures as the source and also use basic techniques of parallel formation, thereby alluding to the Hebrew Scriptures.

So, Torrey must have had some influence and poetry is the key. She quoted 1 John "He abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us" to show that when John says, "I was in the Spirit" it is not exceptional. He noted the difference meant that the John who wrote a gospel could not be the same John that wrote Revelation. Lawrence Apocalypse and the Writings on Revelation.
