MARANATHA Global Bible Study // THE BOOK OF REVELATION // Session 44: The Spirit of Prophecy At the End of All Things
Dalton Thomas of FAI Studios says that the fulfillment of Revelation 14 is after Revelation 13.
That’s not accurate, as Revelation has four chronological layers.
In Revelation 12-13, Messiah gives sweeping overviews of three phases of the Roman beast kingdom (the pagan Roman Empire > that antichrist beast Popes of Rome > the false prophet Jesuit Superior General) that His followers have had to face from when John wrote the vision until He returns.
In Revelation 2-3, Messiah is speaking to seven church eras which have spanned from when John wrote the vision until Messiah returns.
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 New World Order, and Messiah returning in victory, overlay the historical timeline.
In Revelation 17-18, Messiah helps John see how Satan has reigned through seven phases (heads) of the pagan Roman Empire; how the antichrist beast Popes are the eighth head, who rose to power out of the fallen Roman Empire; the antichrist beast Popes harlot church, which teaches a false salvation message and has persecuted the saints; and how the Jesuits are using the Vatican to gather the world under their power.
Dalton Thomas of FAI Studios says that all of the bowl judgments are catastrophic, affecting the whole world.
That’s not accurate as the vial judgments are against the antichrist beast Pope and Catholics who revere (mark on forehead) and obey (mark on right hand, actions) him.
Dalton Thomas of FAI Studios points to Revelation being about Jerusalem centrality.
In a way that’s true, but it’s not about the physical city of Jerusalem. In Revelation, Messiah gives the narrative of the historical battle between the Satan-empowered leaders of the Roman beast kingdom, called the great city, fighting against Messiah and His saints, which are called Holy Jerusalem.
Dalton Thomas of FAI Studios says that the man of sin will appear in Jerusalem.
The Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2 is the Popes of Rome, the restrainer was the Roman Emperors.
“Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” Verse 4
The restrainer that the Apostle Paul was referring to was the Roman Emperors, who held back the Popes from taking power. Once the last Western Roman Emperor was removed from power in 476 A.D., the Popes rose to power, and were given civil and ecclesiastic authority over Rome; healing the deadly head wound, as they took the Emperors title of Pontifex Maximus, leader of the church and state. They sit among the followers of Messiah, which is the temple of God, and they proclaimed to be God.
Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas are misleading so many people about prophecy fulfillment! They will stand before their Righteous Judge to account for their explanations!
Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas teach a futuristic fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9, the Olivet Discourse and the prophecies in Revelation.
The 70th week of Daniel 9 is about Messiah’s ministry and His blood sacrifice as the Spotless Lamb to atone for our sins. It has nothing to do with the antichrist or the end times.
The Olivet Discourse foretold the events that would lead to the desolation of Jerusalem, the second temple and the Jewish nation; as punishment for the Jewish leaders continuing in rebellion against the Heavenly Father and for delivering His Son up to be killed. It has nothing to do with the antichrist or the end times.
Most of the prophecies in Revelation have been fulfilled in exacting detail during the last 1,900 years. It describes the historical narrative of the Satan-empowered leaders of the Roman beast kingdom (pagan Emperors > antichrist beast Popes > false prophet Jesuit Superior Generals) fighting against Messiah and His saints.
The explanations of Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries serve to deflect blame away from the enemy in Rome, and to mislead the end-times saints so that they’re not prepared for how the end-times will play out, and don’t know the context of Messiah’s return.
