Bible Prophecy Made Easy
The purpose of this Revelation Timeline Decoded study is to give you the big picture of how all of the prophecies connect in their fulfillment.
This is just a summary. Detailed verse by verse explanations are available on the website.
These prophecy explanations hold to the historical view, meaning the prophecies of the Bible have historically been in the process of being fulfilled throughout the history of the Church, and will continue to be fulfilled until Jesus returns.
This stands in contrast to the enemy’s deception of saying that most prophecy will be fulfilled during the last few years. By getting Christians to look for a future fulfillment, Satan causes them to not realize who is the Antichrist and False Prophet, who he has empowered as the enemy to war against Messiah and His Church. And it creates many false expectations of how the end times will play out, so that Christians aren’t prepared for what will happen.
Counterpoints are provided show how common futuristic teachings are false.
The prophecies of Daniel, Paul and John, all point to the beast of Rome.
Keep in mind that Paul and John wrote when the Roman Empire was in power, so they couldn’t specifically name Rome and they coded their language, as to not invite more persecution from the Roman beast.
The prophecies are listed in the order of their fulfillment, to help you see how they interconnect.
We’ll start with the prophecies in Daniel 2 and 7, as they interlock with the prophecies of Revelation.
To understand the beasts of Revelation you have to understand the fulfillment of the beasts of Daniel 2 and 7.
The visions in Daniel 2 and 7 revealed that there would be four kingdoms that span until Jesus returns.
The head of gold in Daniel 2, the lion of Daniel 7, was the empire of Babylon.
The kingdom of Babylon was strong, courageous and fierce as a lion; whose king was humbled and whose wings were clipped by the Medo-Persian Empire.
The chest of silver in Daniel 2, the bear of Daniel 7, was the Medo-Persian Empire.
Like a bear, their army was huge, up to 1.5 million people, and they overwhelmed the enemy with their size. Persia was the stronger of the two (symbolized by being raised up on one side), and it devoured the three kingdoms (ribs) of Babylon, Lydia, and Egypt.
The waist of brass in Daniel 2, the leopard of Daniel 7, was the Grecian Empire.
Alexander the Great and his Grecian army were smaller, so they were able to move swiftly like a leopard and were agile in their battles. The ‘four wings‘ represent Alexander’s four chief captains, who helped him conquer and then became heads of the empire after his death.
The legs of iron in Daniel 2, the dreadful beast of Daniel 7, was the Roman Empire.
It trampled everything in its path. It was in power during Messiah’s ministry and was used to desolate Jerusalem, the temple and the Jews in 70 A.D. But it was different, as it was a church/state, which not only conquered other countries, but also persecuted the saints.
Satan knew the prophecy of Daniel 9, which stated that the promised Messiah would appear in Judea 483 years after the Jews were released from Babylon and empowered to go rebuild Jerusalem and the temple; so he took control of the Roman Empire, which took control of the land of Judea.
He caused Herod to seek to kill Messiah as a baby.
He caused the Jews to deliver up Messiah to the Romans to be killed.
After Messiah rose again, and His Church exploded across the Roman Empire, Satan had the Roman leaders persecute the Early Church to try to wipe it out, killing 10 million saints.
In Daniel 2 we are told that the Father would setup His kingdom during the beasts reign, which happened when Messiah setup His kingdom in the first century, when Rome was in power. Messiah’s fledgling Church grew quickly during the reign of the mighty Empire.
For Messiah to establish His kingdom, He had to replace the old system with the new, where He reigns:
In 70 A.D., Messiah used the Roman army to remove the Jewish High Priest (Sun), as Messiah became our High Priest.
He removed the Jewish leadership (moon) and priests (stars), and now those who believe in Messiah’s atoning work are the priests.
He removed the temple, as the body of Christ, His Church, is now the temple of God.
Counterpoint: The beasts of Daniel are Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome. It’s telling us that Rome would reign from Messiah’s first coming to His return. When Messiah returns He will destroy the Roman beast. So it’s not the Jews, they are controlled by the Jesuits of Rome. It’s not Islam, they too are controlled by the Jesuits of Rome. The end times reigning power is the Jesuits of Rome.
The prophecies in Daniel spoke of the four beast kingdoms which would reign until Messiah returns.
Daniel told us that following the iron legs of the Roman Empire would be iron/clay feet. This represents the Roman beast changing form into the Roman Catholic Church, which has sought to eliminate the Two Witnesses against it, the Scriptures and the saints.
The clay represents the Arabs, as the Roman Bishops helped write the Qur’an and prop up the illiterate Mohamed as their prophet. They did this to use Muslims to conquer territories; kill saints, Jews and orthodox Christians; and to capture Jerusalem. Today the Jesuits of Rome use Muslim countries, al Qaeda and ISIS, to carry out their Inquisition, and to help overthrow leaders of countries who have not bowed down to their authority, such as in Syria right now.
Daniel 5 gives the vision which told the Babylonian king that his kingdom was at an end, and would be given to the Medes and Persians.
Daniel 6 speaks of the Medo-Persia leader, Darius.
Daniel 7 gave more information about the 4 beast kingdoms of Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome.
It foretold that after the Roman Empire was split into 10 civil kingdoms, that the Little Horn, the Popes of Rome, would rise to power, and subdue three of the kingdoms who would did bow down to their authority.
Daniel 8 gives the vision of the Ram and the he-goat, which represent Persia being destroyed and succeeded by the army of Greece.
Daniel 9 describes 70 consecutive week (490 years) in which the Jews were released from Babylon, to prepare for their promised Messiah.
During the first 7 weeks (49 years) they rebuilt the temple and city.
During the next 62 weeks (434 years) there was relative silence from God from prophets, as they prepared for the coming Messiah, who would appear after the 69 weeks.
During the 70th week of Daniel, the Messiah and His disciples confirmed to the Jews that He is the promised Messiah who ratified the everlasting covenant with His blood as the Passover Lamb. It also foretold that because the Jewish leaders would reject Messiah and deliver Him up to be killed; that they city, temple and Jews would be desolated by the ‘people of the prince’, which pointed to the Roman army.
Counterpoint: The 70th week of Daniel was fulfilled, so it is not a futuristic 7-year tribulation period. That is a deception of the Jesuits of Rome, which was created in the 16th century to deflect blame away from the Pope, as the Protestant Reformers had rightly identified them as the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the antichrist beast of Revelation 13.
Daniel 10 speaks of the change of power from Persia to Greece.
Daniel 11 gives the continuous historical narrative of events of the kingdoms of Medo-Persia, Greece and Antiochus Epiphanes, and then Rome.
Daniel 12 describes the desolation of the Jewish people, at the hands of the Romans from 66-70 A.D., as was prophesied in Daniel 9 and the Olivet Discourse.
Counterpoint: All of the prophecies in Daniel have been fulfilled, with the exception of Messiah returning to destroy the Roman Catholic Church (iron) and Islam (clay) which are the enemy of Messiah and His saints.
In the Olivet Discourse Messiah gave warnings and the sign that the temple, city and Jew, were going to be desolated.
There were earthquakes, wars, famines, false prophets, etc., which led to the Abomination of Desolation, which Luke 21:20 told us is the Roman army, the ‘people of the prince‘ from Daniel 9:26, who surrounded Holy Jerusalem to desolate it.
Messiah caused that division of the Roman army to leave abruptly with no explanation, which allowed the Early Church to escape to the mountains of Pella for safety.
The Jews were emboldened by the Roman army leaving and they stayed.
Then a much stronger division of the Roman army surrounded the city; which led to the time of trouble for the Jews, when 1.1 million Jews died in and around Jerusalem from famine, pestilence, infighting, suicide, murder, crucifixion and by the Roman sword.
Counterpoint: Many Pastors cite Matthew 24 and apply it to the end times, but it was completely fulfilled in the first century; which matches Messiah’s clear statement that all of those things would take place in that generation.
In it’s simplest form, the book of Revelation is the narrative of the historical battle between the Satan-empowered Roman beast against Messiah and His Church.
It is the battle of the great city of Rome (Rev 17:18), home to the Roman beast; against the Holy Jerusalem, the bride of Messiah (Rev. 21:9-10).
The Apocalyptic vision is a war manual. To hide the message from the Romans, and from undiscerning people, John coded the Apocalyptic message with symbols.
When John used the name Babylon, he was pointing to Rome, the great city of his day. He couldn’t name Rome, as that would have invited more persecution.
Most of the symbols are defined in the Old Testament, so if you don’t read it, you can’t know how the Bible defines the term, and you’re left to take them literally.
John also layered the Apocalyptic vision to hide the message. To see the fulfillment you have to overlay the layers to see how they interrelate.
In Revelation 2-3, our Lord used the names (which have coded meanings) of seven churches to describe seven church eras, which have spanned from when John wrote the vision until Messiah returns.
In Revelation 12-13, our Lord gives sweeping overviews of three phases of the Rome beast (the Roman Empire > The Roman Catholic Church > The Jesuits of Rome) that His followers have had to face from when John wrote the vision until Jesus returns.
In Revelation 17-18, our Lord helps John see how Satan would reign through seven phases (heads) of the Roman beast; how the Roman Catholic Church is the eighth head, the Harlot of Babylon, the false Church; and how the Jesuits are using the Vatican to gather the world under their power, and then they will desolate the Harlot.
The seven Seals, the sealing of the 144,000, the seven Trumpet judgments, the Little Book, the Two Witnesses, the seven Bowl judgments, the Battle of Armageddon, the One World Government, and Jesus returning in victory; overlay the historical timeline, to reveal the fulfillment.
Revelation 12 and 13 foretold the three phases of the Roman beast.
The first layer of the Revelation Timeline is the description of the three forms of the Roman beast, found in Revelation 12 and 13, that the Church of Christ has had to face through it’s history.
The Roman Empire > The Roman Catholic Church > The Jesuits of Rome
Revelation 12 describes the iron legs of the statue in Daniel 2, the dreadful beast of Daniel 7, the Roman Empire, which was terrible and exceedingly strong.
Satan was exalted in this Empire, as they worship his false gods. When Messiah caused the Empire to fall, Satan was cast down from his place of power. The last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D.
Counterpoint: Revelation 12 is not about Israel. It is about the birth of Messiah, His Church and the New Testament, the two-fold witness that Messiah is the Son of Elohim, the Passover Lamb, who atoned for our sins by His sacrifice, and who rose again. Satan used the Roman Empire to try to kill Messiah as a baby, to crucify Messiah, and to try to wipe out the Early Church.
The Revelation 13 sea beast describes the Popes of Rome, who reigned for 1,260 years from 538-1798 A.D.
The Biblical antichrist is a position, like the President of the United States or the King of England, which has been fulfilled by many Popes, since the 6th century.
‘Antichrist‘ is a Greek word. ‘Vicar‘ is an English word. The words are synonymous. They have exactly the same meaning. ‘Antichrist‘ translated into the English is ‘Vice Christ‘ or ‘Vicar of Christ.’ Rendered into the Greek is ‘Antichristos‘ = ‘Antichrist.’ The ordinary use of the word in the Greek is decisive on this point.
St Gelasius I, who was the Pope from 492 – 496, was the first Pope to be called the “Vicar of Christ“. And since then each Pope has been declared the Vicar of Christ. The position of Antichrist is not just one man, it is a position, like the President of the United States or the King of England. The office of the Papacy has fulfilled the position of antichrist, and of the Son of Perdition. Jesus said many will come in my name. So it does not just apply to one man in the end times.
Counterpoint: Antichrist is not just one man in the end times, like so many teach. There will be one last Pope, possibly Francis, but the antichrist sea beast is the office of the Popes of Rome.
The Revelation 13 earth beast describes the Jesuit Generals, who seized control of the Vatican in the late 18th century, and are pushing the world towards their One World Government.
The False Prophet is a position, which has been fulfilled by many Jesuit Generals, the Black Popes, since the late 18th century. The Jesuit Generals dress as priests (lamb-like), but they worship Satan and use sorcery to deceive the nations.
Jesuit priests spread around the world dressed as Christians, but they teach a false salvation message of works through the Papal Church and now cause 1.2 Billion Catholics to worship/revere the Pope, who is now a Jesuit priest.
And it was the Jesuit Priests who created the false futuristic prophecy fulfillment deceptions, to deflect blame away from the antichrist Popes, and to deceive Christians.
Counterpoint: The False Prophet is not just one man in the end times, like so many teach. There will one last Jesuit General, perhaps Adolfo Nicolás, but the earth beast, the False Prophet, is the office of the Jesuit Generals of Rome.
Jesus words in Revelation chapters 2-3 are to seven church eras that have spanned from Jesus first coming to His second.
These church eras faced the Roman Empire:
Ephesus from 70-100. After Messiah rose again, Jerusalem was desolated, the Roman persecutions began, and Messiah had not returned yet, so some in the Early church had fallen from their first love.
Smyrna (from the word myrrh, symbolizing death) from 100-313, when 10 million saints were martyred by the Roman Empire, especially during 10 years from 303-312 (5th seal).
Pergamos from 313-538, was a time of falling away from the true faith, and compromising with the Roman Christian religion.
These two church eras witnessed against the Roman Catholic Church for 1,260 years:
Thyatira (means ruled by a woman, the Harlot Church) from 538-1514. They were tortured and killed during the Dark Ages, as the Papal Church worked relentlessly to eliminate the Two Witnesses against it, the Word of God and Messiah’s Church.
Sardis (means escaping one) which symbolized millions of Catholics escaping the Papal Church, to be saved by faith during the Protestant Reformation, from 1514-1798.
These two church eras witnessed about true salvation, instead of salvation by works through the Papal Church.
And they testified against the antichrist Papal Church, and honored Christ with their blood, as 50 million were martyred.
These church eras face(d) the Jesuits of Rome:
Philadelphia from 1798-1866, when worldwide missions caused many to be saved. Messiah had nothing bad to say about this Church era, as they boldly proclaimed the Gospel around the world, and they proclaimed that the Popes were the antichrist.
Laodicea (lukewarm) 1866 – present, where the church has been blinded to the truth about historical prophecy fulfillment. The Jesuit’s futuristic deceptions took hold through people like John Nelson Darby, Cyrus Ingerson Scofield and Lewis Sperry Chafer, who started Dallas Theological Seminary, where the leaven of the deceptions has spread worldwide, so that most Pastors teach them, and most Christians believe them.
Counterpoint: The letter to the seven churches were not just to the current churches, as that would mean that Messiah didn’t write to the larger churches of Colosse, Ephesus, etc. Instead the seven churches were chosen because of what their name and city represented, which applied to future church ages. Remember, the Apocalypse is a war manual with a coded message.
The Seven Seals describe Messiah’s judgment against Pagan Rome for her idolatry and for her persecution of His church.
Satan had caused the Roman Empire to kill 10 million Christians to try to wipe out the Early Church, so Messiah exacted vengeance.
He caused it to collapse internally from famine, pestilence, civil war and political upheaval; during the Seal judgments of Revelation.
John couldn’t say that it was the Roman Empire which would collapse, so he used symbols that Christians would know.
1st Seal – The white horse represents the conquering Roman Empire, from 96 – 180 A.D., as it was a time of its greatest expansion and their military conquests were celebrated by riding white horses in their victory parades. Cretan Roman Emperors Trajan, Hadrian, Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius, each had a bow as their symbol. The crown represents the laurel wreathes of victory that were worn by the Caesars after their armies had won a military battle. Note: the Early Church believed that it represented Messiah victoriously conquering Rome by His Gospel.
2nd Seal – The Red horse represents a bloody time in the Roman Empire from 185-284, as it went into a phase of revolution and civil war for 90 years, during which there were 32 emperors and 27 contenders for the throne.
3rd Seal – The Black horse represents a period of gloom and despair, as the Romans suffered under excessive taxes that were needed to pay for wars. The prices for wheat and barley that the Lord decreed were the exact prices from 222-235.
4th Seal – The Pale horse represents 1/4th of Romans dying from famine, plague, pestilence and violence, from 250-300.
The word ‘Earth‘ means land, not the whole Earth. The Roman Empire is the land/earth of prophecy.
5th Seal – Represents the millions of martyrs killed by the Roman Empire, especially the Smyrna church martyrs who Emperor Diocletian persecuted for 10 years (10 days, Rev 2:10), from 303-312. Their blood was crying out for the Lord to avenge their deaths.
6th Seal – Earthquakes in the prophecy represent great political upheavals. Eastern Emperor Constantine defeated Diocletian’s army in 312 A.D., which ended the persecutions. Diocletian (the Sun) was so panic stricken, he died insane. Constantine defeated emperors Maxentius and Licinius (moons) to become sole ruler of both west and east by 324 A.D. The Roman leaders (stars) fell and their power receded as a scroll. The mountains and islands that were moved out of place, were the countries and people that were affected by this political change.
Satan was losing power over Rome, and he was losing the battle against Messiah and His Church, so he created a new strategy; to create a ‘christian’ church which would deceive people from within.
He caused the Bishops and Emperor Constantine to create the cult of Roman Christianity:
He named the Messiah after Zeus, with the Greek formation of the name Iesous, which became Jesus. Romans revered Zeus and patterned their names after him, which ended in ‘us’, such as Flavius, Titus, Julius, etc.; so Iesous/Jesus name follows this pattern.
The Messiah’s true Hebrew name is Yahusha, which means YaHUaH (the Father’s personal name) Saves.
He created pagan-based holidays like Easter (Ishtar) and Christ-mass, replacing the Father’s seven Holy Feast Days, which the Messiah is fulfilling to redeem His bride.
Passover represents His atoning sacrifice for our sins. First Fruits represents His resurrection. The Feast of Trumpets represents His return for His bride.
He renamed the Roman pagan gods as Mary, Peter, etc., to give them a ‘christian’ veneer.
The statue of St. Peter was the god Saturn. Mary represents the Babylonian Goddess Semiramus. Her son, Tammuz, represents Jesus. Unknowingly this why Catholics cross their heart with a T, symbolically for Tammuz. It is why they have a T on their forehead on Ash Wednesday.
Constantine had stopped the persecution of saints and offered them positions of power in Rome. Many saints compromised and there was a great falling away (2 Thessalonians 2) of truth.
Messiah responded by sending army after army against the Western and Eastern Roman Empire, during the Revelation trumpet judgments.
Counterpoint: The Falling Away that Paul was referring to does not happen in the end times like most Pastors teach, but it was fulfilled when the cult of Roman christianity was created, and many fell away from truth.
7th Seal – It represents the Lord sealing His servants before He sounds the 7 trumpets of judgment against the Pagan Roman Empire.
Counterpoint: The seal judgments are not future, like most Pastors teach. Historians like Edward Gibbon, who wrote “The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire“, were used to document the famine, pestilence, civil war, and political upheaval, which match the description of the seal judgments against the Roman Empire.
The seven trumpets describe God’s judgment against the Western and Eastern Roman Empire.
The Roman Empire split, which was foretold by the two iron legs of the statue in Daniel 2.
Trumpets were used to signify war and the 7 trumpet judgments represent Messiah pouring out His wrath on the Roman Empire via attacks from people groups:
The 1st Trumpet represents the invasion of the Goths that was fulfilled by Alaric from 400-410 A.D. Hail means war in Bible symbolism, and the Lord caused the Goths, who were led by Alaric, to move in the direction in which literal hail came (north to south). They attacked the Roman Empire from 400-410 A.D., in Greece, Gaul, Spain, and then 300,000 Goths invaded Italy. The fire represents their scorched earth policy in their invasions of enemy territory.
The 2nd Trumpet represents the invasion of Vandals by conquest of the seas by Genseric from 425-470 A.D. A mountain in Biblical symbolism represents a great nation and a sea is a large group of people. It represents the Lord sending the Vandals, led by Genseric, to attack the coast-lands on the Roman territory of the Mediterranean and all the islands from 425-470 A.D., leaving bloodshed and confusion in their wake.
The 3rd Trumpet represents the invasion of Attila the Hun, who scourged the rivers in 451 A.D. A star in prophecy symbolizes a leader. God sent this great burning star, Attila the king of the Huns, who was called “the scourge of God.” He came from the area around a river in Illyricum which in Greek is called “Apsynthos” (Wormwood). Attila and his 800,000 man army rose quickly and flashed across the land in 451 A.D., and desolated the Italian Alps, which is the source of the Danube, Rhine and Po rivers.
The 4th Trumpet represents the final overthrow of Rome by Odoacer and the Heruli in 476 A.D. The Sun, Moon and Stars symbolizes leadership structure. Here it represents God using Odoacer and the Heruli, a branch of the Goths, to cause the downfall of Roman leadership when Romulus Augustalus, the last Roman Emperor (the Sun) of the West was captured in 476 A.D. The hierarchy of Roman leaders (moon and stars) would have lost their power too.
Counterpoint: The darkening of the Sun, Moon and Stars, is not referring to the heavenly bodies, as most Pastors teach. The story of Joseph’s vision of the Sun, Moon and Stars bowing down to him, shows us that it represents organizational leadership. In Joseph’s case, it meant his father, mother and brothers.
Then the Roman Catholic Popes fulfilled the Daniel 7:20 prophecy about the Little Horn of Daniel.
When the Roman Emperors were removed, the Roman Empire split into 10 civil kingdoms, the 10 horns on the beast in Daniel 7.
Then Satan caused the Little Horn, the Popes of Rome, to rise up and they caused three of the kingdoms (the Heruli, Vandals and Ostrogoths), to be plucked out because they would not bow down to their authority.
Counterpoint: The Little Horn of Daniel 7 does not apply to the end times, as so many Pastors teach.
The Roman Emperor was the restrainer of 2 Thessalonians 2, which when removed, allowed the Popes to take power.
Paul is telling us that the Son of Perdition would be revealed after the Roman Emperors were removed. They had restrained the Popes from taking power, but with them removed, the Popes seized power.
Paul could not write that it was the Roman Emperors who would be removed, as it would have invited even more persecution from the Romans.
Counterpoint: The restrainer is not the Holy Spirit restraining an end times one-man antichrist and being removed during the supposed 7-year tribulation period. If it was the Holy Spirit, Paul would have just said that. Instead he reminded them of what he said when he was with them, that it was the Roman Emperor who restrained the Popes of Rome from taking power.
The Pope is the Son of Perdition who sits in the temple of God proclaiming to be God, fulfilling 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
The Popes of Rome, the Son of Perdition (2 Thessalonians 2) were empowered by Eastern Roman Emperor in 538 A.D.
The Temple of God is not a physical building, it’s the literal body of Christ, His Church. (Eph. 2:19-22). Whenever Paul used the word temple, he used the Greek word naos, which points to the body of Christ. The physical temple was still standing when Paul wrote his epistles, so if he was referring to a physical temple, it would have been that one.
The Popes pretend to be Christian, they sit as God in the midst of the temple of God (Christians), showing himself that he is God. Pope Leo XIII proclaimed “We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty.” Pope Pius V blasphemed, “The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth.”
The Popes have sat among the saints (in the Temple of God) and proclaimed blasphemous things, such as they are God, and they forgive sins.
Daniel, Paul and John all described the Popes of Rome, who have made pompous, blasphemous statements.
- Daniel 7:8 – “And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.“
- 2 Thessalonians 2:4 – “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
- Revelation 13:5 – “And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.“
Counterpoint: We are not waiting for the Son of Perdition to appear in the end times, as most Pastors teach. He rose to power in 538 A.D., shortly after the last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D.
When the Roman Catholic Popes took the position of power in Rome, the deadly head wound was healed.
The Roman Emperor was the high priest, called the Pontifex Maximus, of its pagan religion. Shortly after the Emperor was removed, the Roman Catholic Church gained religious and civil power when Eastern Emperor Justinian issued a decree making the Pope head of all churches.
The Popes took the title of Pontifex Maximus, as ruler of church and state, and the deadly head wound was healed.
Counterpoint: The deadly head wound does not represent the end times one-man antichrist being killed and coming back to life, as so many Pastors teach.
Daniel and John describe the Roman Catholic Church persecuting the saints for 1,260 years, from 538-1798 A.D.
Daniel 7:25 “Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.”
Revelation 11:2, “But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles (the apostate Roman Catholic Church): and the holy city (Holy Jerusalem, Messiah’s Church, Rev 21:9-10) shall they tread under foot forty and two months.’
Revelation 11:3, “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. (They were in sackcloth because they were persecuted by the Papal Church)”
Revelation 12:13-14, “And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.”
Revelation 13:5,7 – “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.”
In some prophecies a day equals a year. In the case of the above prophecies, the 1,260 days was fulfilled during 1,260 years, when the Popes of Rome sought to eliminate Messiah’s Church, during the Dark Ages and the Inquisition.
Daniel 12 gives prophecies about 1,290 and 1,335 days, which were fulfilled from 66-70 A.D. (1 day does not always equal 1 prophetic year), when Messiah exacted His vengeance against the Jews who rejected Him and delivered Him up to be killed. The temple was destroyed as He foretold in Matthew 24, Jerusalem was desolated, and 1.1 million Jews died in and around Jerusalem, from famine, pestilence, infighting, suicide, crucifixion and by the Roman sword.
Counterpoint: Because the prophecies about 1,260 days have already been fulfilled, it is not about a future 3 1/2 year time of Tribulation, like most Pastors teach.
John said that the antichrist would deny the Son, which the Popes do by proclaiming to be Christ in the flesh.
Pope Pius X declared, “The Pope is not simply the representative of Jesus Christ. On the contrary, he is Jesus Christ Himself, under the veil of the flesh.
They deny Christ’s role of forgiving sins. Pope John Paul II stated, “Don’t go to God for forgiveness of sins: come to me.”
They deny that salvation is through Christ alone. Pope Boniface VIII said “We declare, say, define, and pronounce, that it is absolutely necessary for the salvation of every human creature to be subject to the Roman Pontiff.”
They deny that salvation is by faith alone. The Roman Catholic Church declared at the Council of Trent, “If anyone says that the sinner is justified by faith alone, meaning that nothing else is required to cooperate in order to obtain the grace of justification, and that it is not in any way necessary that he be prepared and disposed by the action of his own will, let him be anathema (damned to hell).”
They deny that Christ alone is our Mediator. Pope Leo XIII said, “O Holy Mother of God; to thee we lift our prayers for thou, powerful and merciful, art the Mediatrix of our salvation.”
They deny Jesus by proclaiming to be the High Priest of the Universal Church.
They deny the Father by taking the title of ‘Holy Father.’
Counterpoint: The antichrist is not just one man in the end times, but it has been fulfilled by the office of the Papacy since the 6th century.
The leaders of the Catholic Church are Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots who are drunk with the blood of the saints of Jesus.
A woman in prophecy is a ‘set apart people’, a church. The bride of Messiah is pure. A harlot worships other gods and is full of abominations.
Their practices oppose the Scriptures. The Catholic Church is full of idols; Catholics call the Pope and Priests ‘Father‘; they teach a false salvation message of the seven sacraments through the Papal Church; they promote Mary worship as their intercessor and co-redeemer.
There is no other institution which has has declared that purple and scarlet are the colors of it’s leaders, the Cardinals and Bishops of Rome.
They hold up the golden cup, which represents the abominations of their Satanic Eucharist ceremony, where they reenact the sacrifice of Christ every day, and claim that the wafer becomes the literal body of Christ.
Their abominations include forbidding priests to marry, which has results in countless sexual abuse incidents.
The Popes of the Catholic Church have been drunk with the blood of the saints.
Some historians estimate that more than 50 million people (mostly Christians from Christ’s true Church), were deemed as heretics and killed by the Roman Catholic Church.
The Popes of Rome are the Mother of Harlots.
They helped created the false religions of Roman Christianity, Islam, Mormonism, Seventh Day Adventists, etc.
They are called a Mystery (meaning a secret), “Babylon the Great,” because the Popes pretend to follow the Messiah, but they’re really the Babylonian religion of Sun and Satan worship, who seeks to eliminate the true followers of Messiah.
That made John marvel in great amazement, so the angel sought to provide clarification about how this Harlot Church would rise to power.
He told John that the antichrist sea beast of Revelation 13, the Popes of Rome, would rise up and mislead many.
Today 1.2 Billion Catholics are misled, and all of the people in her daughters, such as Islam with 1 billion followers, are misled as well.
Again, John can’t point directly to Rome, so he described Rome.
Rome is known as the city of seven hills, so John knew the angel was talking about Rome.
He was told about 7 kings that would reign until the 8th king, the Popes of Rome, rose up to power out of the Roman Empire.
The kings represented seven forms of Roman government; five of which had passed before Revelation was written; one which was, the Roman Emperors; and a seventh, which existed a short time from 476 A.D., when the last Roman Emperor was removed, to 538 A.D., when the Popes of Rome, the 8th king, were empowered.
Counterpoint: This is not talking about 8 Popes in the end times, since the Lateran Treaty of 1929, which many Pastors teach.
The iron/clay feet of Daniel 2 foretold that the Roman beast would mix with another people group, the Arabs.
With the Western Roman Empire in ruins, the Catholic Church had no military power, so they helped write the Qur’an and prop up the illiterate Mohamed as the prophet of Islam, to use Arabs.
The Strong’s Hebrew word for both “mixed” and “they shall mingle themselves” is 6151 “arab.”
The clay represents the Ishmaelites, who became the Muslims of Islam, who became the great Ottoman Empire; who worked with the Roman Catholic Church to control the lands previously occupied by the Roman Empire.
The Roman Catholic Church created the religion of Islam to deceive Arabs, lest they be converted by true followers of Messiah. Islam was written in such a way as to cause them to kill heretics, Jews and Christians, the enemies of the Papal Church.
Through the years they have battled against each other, especially over Jerusalem, so they don’t mix well.
The Qur’an was written in such a way as to cause people to point to Islam as the antichrist beast. And it certainly is joined at the hip with the Roman beast.
Today, the Jesuits of Rome control the major of Muslim countries and they control/train/arm/fund Al Qaeda and ISIS rebels, to kill Christians, and to take control of countries for their New World Order.
Counterpoint: Islam and the Muslims are not the antichrist beast as many Pastors teach, they are just another harlot of Rome, which are being used to carry out their Inquisition.
The 5th Trumpet represents the Lord using the Arabian (Mohammedan) army against the Western Roman Empire from 612-762 A.D., which is 150 years (5 months = 150 days). They wore turbans (crowns of gold); they had beards (faces of men); they had long hair like women; they wore chain-mail (breast-plates of iron); and they were fierce (teeth of lions). The falling star was Mohamed, the smoke out of Satan’s bottomless pit of lies is the Qur’an.
What is interesting is that the Papal Church was used to empower the Mohammedans to carry out vengeance against the Roman Empire, which they sought to control.
Counterpoint: The fifth Trumpet is not real locust filling the earth for five months. The Ishmaelites were defined in the Bible as locust in Judges 7:12.
The 6th Trumpet represents the Lord releasing the Turks, who became the Ottoman Empire, to cross over the Euphrates River to conquer 1/3rd of the Roman Empire during 391 years (prepared for the hour and day and month and year, 1 + 30 + 360 = 391) from 1062-1453 A.D., which ended when they used large cannons (out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone) to knock down the thick protective walls of Constantinople.
Counterpoint: The sixth Trumpet is not an army of 200 million men and their horses breathing out fire and brimstone.
The 7th Trumpet represented the Protestant Reformation, when the Lord through His Church took back control of the nations, the Word of God was spread around the world, and the Gospel was preached.
It foretold His coming bowl judgments upon those who obeyed the Popes of Rome in killing the saints.
The Little Book of Revelation 10 was needed because the Catholic Church forbid Bible reading and burned Bibles.
When the Turks of the 6th Trumpet threatened Constantinople, many of the priests fled to Europe and they took with them the Greek and Hebrew Scripture manuscripts.
Messiah caused this to happen so that people like John Wycliffe could translate the Bible into English. Martin Luther translated it into German. John Calvin helped it get translated into French. William Tyndale’s New Testament (1526) was the first printed English Bible. And with the advent of the printing press, millions of Bibles were spread worldwide.
To John, the printed Bible would be a little book, compared to the long scrolls of his day.
The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 are the Word of God (oil) and Christ’s Church (lampstand).
The two lampstands (Rev. 1:20) are the two church eras of Thyatira and Sardis, which existed from 538-1798.
They both witnessed that salvation is through faith in Messiah’s atoning work, not by works through the Catholic Church.
They both testified that the Roman Catholic Church is the Antichrist beast of Daniel and Revelation.
The Popes of Rome relentlessly sought to eliminate the Two Witnesses (Rev. 11) against it; as they burned the Scriptures and killed millions of saints, whom they deemed as heretics, during the Dark Ages.
They were so successful, that at the 5th Lateran Council in May, 1514, they proclaimed that the Two Witnesses, the Scriptures and Church, had been silenced, so that they were dead and unable to testify against them any more. And they held great feasts to celebrate.
And for 3 1/2 years (Rev. 11) there was no protest to be heard, as the true Church was as dead. This matches Messiah’s words to the Church of Sardis in Revelation 3, when He said they were dead. But then He commanded them to take action, so they weren’t physically dead, just emotionally and spiritually.
During this time Messiah had Martin Luther, a Catholic Monk who only knew what the priests taught in Latin, read the Holy Scriptures.
He had him use the ‘reed like a measuring rod,’ the Word of God, to determine that what the Popes proclaimed opposed what the Bible taught; and that their message of salvation by the sacraments, through the Papal Church, meant that they were an apostate church and not the true Church.
They are the Gentiles who trampled the Holy city (spiritual Jerusalem), the bride of Christ, for 1,260 years. (Rev. 21:2)
Then, exactly 3 1/2 years later, in October, 1517, Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses and the Protestant Reformation was born. The Church came back to live, as millions were saved and came out of the Papal Church, and they took back control of the nations, such as England.
All of the Protestant Reformers boldly testified that the Popes of Rome were the Son of Perdition and the Antichrist beast of Revelation.
Counterpoint: The Two Witnesses are not Enoch and Elijah or Moses and Elijah in the end times. They were the Word of God and the Church of Christ, both of which witnesses against the antichrist Popes of Rome during their 1,260 year reign. The two church eras, the lampstands, were fed oil by the Word of God. Both testified that salvation is by faith in Messiah’s atoning work alone, and not by the Roman sacraments; and they testified that the Popes of Rome are the antichrist.
Satan countered by causing the Popes of Rome to empower the Jesuit Order, at the Council of Trent, to bring the Protestants back under the control of Rome.
The Jesuits did this with the Inquisition tortures and killing of millions of saints in France, Spain, and other countries that the Pope controlled.
The Jesuits also had an esteemed theologian named Francisco Ribera create a narrative about a future 70th week of Daniel, an end-times 7-year tribulation period, featuring a one-man antichrist.
They did this to deflect blame away from the Popes of Rome. Sadly this deception is exactly what most Christians believe today, which has indeed worked to deflect blame away from the Popes of Rome and the Jesuit Generals, as the enemy of Messiah and His Church. 🙁
Nobody believed this deception until the 1800’s, when they had Jesuit Manuel (Emmanuel) de Lacunza publish the work ‘The Coming of Messiah in Glory and Majesty’ under the seemingly Jewish pen name of ‘Ben Ezra’.
The pseudonym may be seen as a way of making the work acceptable to Christian readers and diverting attention from the station of the author, as the Inquisition clearly taught Christians that Jesuits were the enemy.
The works of Jesuits Ribera and Lacunza took hold through people like John Nelson Darby and Cyrus Ingerson Scofield, and then directly into Dallas Theological Seminary by the founder Lewis Sperry Chaffer, who was a protegee of Scofield.
It is at DTS that the leaven of the Jesuit’s deception has spread around the world, so that almost every Christian believes in the futurist view of prophecy, based on a future 70th week of Daniel.
Counterpoint: Rest assured that Elohim fulfilled His own 70 week prophecy. The 70th week was fulfilled after the 69th week, from 27-34 A.D., when Messiah and His disciples confirmed to the Jews for seven years, that it was He who was sent to ratify the promised covenant of salvation by His blood as the Passover Lamb. After the 70th week, the Gospel was also preached to the Gentile nations. There is no future 7-year tribulation period, that is a deception from the enemy. This will be covered in a different study.
Revelation 14 follows the narrative of Revelation 10 and 11, which foretold the Protestant Reformation, when the Bible was translated and printed and spread around the world; where the gospel was preached, causing millions of Catholics to be saved and come out of the Harlot Church; which is represented by the harvest of souls for Christ in Rev. 14:14-16
But with that came persecution from the Jesuits of Rome. At the Council of Trent, the Jesuits made declarations to counter the Reformation, to kill the heretics, to bring the Protestants back under the rule of Rome.
France was known as the eldest son of the Papacy, who had the mark of the beast as they revered (forehead) the Pope and obeyed (hand) his commands in persecuting and killing the saints.
More than a million French Protestants were killed or run out of the country, many of which had their heads cut off in the major cities of France, and who were killed all around France. Spain and other Catholic countries also followed the Popes orders in killing the saints.
The second sickle of Rev. 14:17-20 represents the coming wrath of God against those who had persecuted and killed the saints, which will be carried out in the seven bowl judgments.
Revelation 15 shows heaven exalting over the millions of souls who were saved during the Protestant Reformation.
And it sets the scene for the upcoming bowl judgments against France, Spain and upon the Roman Catholic Church.
The bowls of Revelation 16 represent God’s wrath being been poured out on the Roman Catholic Church.
The Jesuits spread around the world, pretending to be priests, listening to confessions to gather intel; while covertly they were subverting the countries they were in. As a result, they were kicked out of many countries, including Catholic ones.
In the late 18th century, the King of France called on the Pope of Rome to remove the Jesuits from power. He did and for this he was poisoned to death.
The Jesuits plotted their revenge against France and the other countries that had kicked them out, but they were only fulfilling prophecy as Messiah was using them to exact vengeance against those countries for killing millions of saints, during the 1st-4th bowls of Revelation.
The 1st Bowl was poured out when the Jesuits caused the foul and loathsome sore of atheism to spread across France. The French Protestants had been killed, so the Catholic religion was all that was left. And the Lord allowed the abomination of atheism to turn the people away from the Papal Church, so they were left with no hope in atheism.
The 2nd Bowl was poured out as the Jesuits incited the French people to revolt against the Catholic Church leaders and France’s leaders, and their heads rolled. During the French Revolution, 250,000 were killed in the very places that the French Protestants had been killed. Water symbolically represents people, and the sea of people represented the people in the large cities being killed. Catholic churches were turned into brothels and the nation descended into anarchy.
The 3rd Bowl was poured out as the bloody French Revolution spread out from the major cities (seas) to the more rural areas (rivers and springs, smaller groups of people) where they had shed the blood of saints and prophets, and now it was time for them to drink the same fate.
The 4th Bowl was poured out as the Jesuits caused the bloody Napoleonic wars with countries that had previously banned them, so they were getting their revenge. Our Sovereign Lord used it to exact revenge against the countries that had shed the blood of the saints. But the leaders of the countries did not repent, they blasphemed God for His punishment, and they later came back under Catholic/Jesuit control.
The 5th Bowl was poured out on the seat of the beast, as the office of the Papacy lost their power in 1798. Shortly after the French Revolution, the Papal States were invaded by French forces, and they removed Pope Pius VI, who died in exile in Valence (France) in 1799. Their 1,260 year reign was ended by the hand of the Lord, but they repented not.
Counterpoint: All of the horror stories that Pastors give about the futuristic 1st-5th bowl judgment are not true, as they have already been fulfilled.
The Jesuit General, the earth beast of Revelation 13, took control of the Vatican.
Since then the Jesuits have spread around the world, teaching a false salvation message of works through the sacraments, through the Papal Church; so that today there is 1.2 billion Catholics worldwide.
The Jesuits acts like priests (lamb-like), but they serve Satan, and use sorcery to deceive nations.
And now the Pope is a Jesuit in Pope Francis, who is drawing Muslims, Protestants and all people groups unto the Roman Catholic Church.
They are causing the world to revere/worship/obey an image of the beast, the Papal Church Pope.
In 1776 they caused Adam Weishaupt to create the Bavarian Illuminati, to act covertly, since they had been kicked out of many countries.
The Illuminati infiltrated and took over Freemasonry, to illuminate teachable people, to take positions of power in different countries, allowing them to take control.
The Jesuits had a hand in the founding of America, through the Carroll family, which was the richest in America.
Charles Carroll signed the Declaration of Independence.
John Carroll donated the land of Rome, MARYland, which became their city-state corporation of Washington D.C
John Carroll also founded Georgetown University, through which they control the country.
The Jesuits fomented the American Civil War with the primary purpose of bankrupting it. They funded both sides and caused them to get into massive debt. And it worked.
Abraham Lincoln had proclaimed, “The war would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits.”
Under no constitutional authority to do so, Congress being in dire straits, passed the Act of 1871, which created a separate form of government in the District of Columbia, which is a ten mile square parcel of land that was donated by John Carroll.
This city-state corporation is owned and controlled by the Jesuits of Rome. The leaders in Washington work for the corporation, not the American people.
They created the Federal Reserve Bank, to control our money.
They created the IRS, to collect interest on the debt of the borrowed money.
They created the Trilateral Commission to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power–Political, Monetary, Intellectual, and Ecclesiastical
They created the Council On Foreign Relations to destroy the freedom and independence of the U.S., and to lead the country into a one-world government
They created the CIA and Pentagon, to manage the intel-gathering, and to use them to help overthrow the leaders of countries who had not bowed down to their authority; such as Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya; which is why America and Israel is attacking Syria right now, as President Assad has not bowed down to their authority.
The Jesuits cannot control the whole world until they control the money supply of every country with a Rothchild central bank.
The covertly control the International Bank of Settlements, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the Federal Reserve and the central banks of almost every country in the world, the top commercial banks and financial institutions.
In their One World Government, they will enforce the mark of the beast, to determine who can buy or sell.
The 6th Bowl was poured out to dry up the Ottoman Empire, the Turks of the Euphrates who had been released during the 6th Trumpet.
During the 18th and 19th centuries, they lost control of territories which they had occupied, preparing the way for the rise of these kings of the East, such as Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
They lost control of Palestine to General Allenby of Great Britain in 1917, paving the way for the creation of the Jesuits Zionist state of Israel.
The last Ottoman Sultan lost power in 1922, and all they have left is the country of Turkey.
The three unclean spirits of Revelation 16 are the three World Wars
WW I and WW II were created by Satan (the dragon) through the Jesuits (the False Prophet) of the Roman Catholic Church (the beast), to push the world into their New World Order where Satan will be worshiped. The World Wars were manipulated to engage countries into war.
The Jesuits fomented World War I, causing the overthrow of the Czars of Russia, which brought in atheistic Communism, which has been used to destroy other governments and to weaken the religions. They caused the Ottoman Empire to lose control of Palestine, to prepare the way for the Ashkenazi Jews to populate it.
The Jesuits fomented World War II by empowering Hitler and the Nazi regime to persecute Jews, in order to strengthen political Zionism, and justify the creation of their sovereign state of Israel.
It also led to the creation of the Jesuit Zionist state of Israel, which they need as center stage for their end times deception, and New World Government, to gather all of the religions into one. The satanic six-sided star that the Rothchild family reveres, and no doubt uses to invoke the powers of evil spirits to gather wealth, is on the flag of Israel.
This is where we are at on the prophecy fulfillment timeline.
The Jesuits are gathering the major religions against each other by pitting the Muslim Kings of the East against Israel.
This will lead to World War III, where Muslim countries and Israel will war against each other.
WW III and a worldwide financial collapse will cause the world to beg for solutions for food and water, and for peace.
Of course, the Jesuits of Rome will have solutions at the ready, to provide food and water, and peace and safety, to those who submit to their New World Order. They will force people to bow and worship the image of their beast leader.
Bowl 7 represents the One World Government. Earthquakes in prophecy represent government upheaval, so this mighty and great earthquake in Revelation 16:18 symbolizes the forming of the New World Order, which is split into three parts.
The world will be controlled through the Jesuits three city-state corporations, which are already in place:
Vatican City controls the religious and political leaders of the world.
The City of London controls the world’s financial and trade organizations, to determine who can buy and sell.
Washington D.C. controls the worlds intelligence agencies and military power, to enforce the mark of the beast.
Countries and large cities will lose their independent powers, and be subservient to the New World Order.
Revelation 18 is the narrative of our Lord avenging the martyrs deaths by destroying the great harlot church, Mystery Babylon, which shall not be found anymore.
Daniel 2 foretold that “a stone was cut out without hands” would destroy the Babylonian statue, which ended with the Rome kingdom. It says “the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.”
In Revelation 18:21, it foretells that “a strong angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “So will Babylon, the great city, be thrown down with violence, and will not be found any longer.”
Christ could destroy the Babylonian Jesuits at any time, but I am going to suggest that His purposes may be to do that through His followers; who use the rod of iron, the Word of God, to overcome the enemy.
Christ’s Church is the great mountain that filled the earth, the great millstone that Christ may use to destroy Babylon.
“Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture, “Behold, I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, elect, precious, And he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.” Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient, “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone,” and “A stone of stumbling And a rock of offense.” 1 Peter 2:4-8
“Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, In whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:19-22
Messiah’s saints can overcome the enemy in the power of our King, when they understand how greatly they have been deceived about prophecy, and about the Jesuits and the Roman Catholic Church.
Revelation 19 tells us that Messiah will be on a white horse, and just like the Roman leaders who rode a white horse to celebrate their army’s victories, I believe that our Messiah will come to celebrate His victory of conquering His enemies, through His end-times warriors.
“He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.”
The Satan-empowered Jesuits cause believers to fear the end times and hope for a rapture, instead of fighting against them in the power of the Messiah, with the rod of iron, the sword of the Word of Elohim, exposing their deceptions and removing their power over the world.
So what has this prophecy summary taught us?
There is no Biblical basis for futuristic 3rd Jewish temple, antichrist peace agreement with Israel, pre-tribulation rapture, 7-year tribulation period, or 3 1/2 year great tribulation period; as they have been fulfilled.
There is no Biblical basic for futuristic seals, trumpets or the first five bowls of Revelation; as they have been fulfilled.
Those are deceptions of the enemy, to blind Christians to the truth of prophecy fulfillment.
The Jesuits will no doubt cause events like an Israel peace agreement, the rebuilding of the temple, and even maybe a fake rapture scenario is possible. They would do those things to promote their deception, but those concepts are not biblical.
