Let me start by saying that the historical fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9 from 27-34 AD, Messiah’s Olivet Discourse which describes events leading to the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70 AD, and most of prophecies in Revelation during the last 1,900 years; validates the authority of Scripture and the deity of Messiah. Dalton’s futuristic explanations serve to hide those proofs.
The Protestant Reformers and great theologians of the 16th-19th centuries all taught the historical fulfillment of prophecy. It’s only during the few centuries that the futuristic deceptions have taken hold as the enemy has deceived even the very elect.
The concept of a future 70th week of Daniel 9, in which a one-man antichrist appears and most of Revelation is fulfilled, is a deception from the enemy. I know that sounds crazy since most people teach these concepts, but the enemy has worked hard to mislead the end-times saints so that even the very elect are deceived. I pray that you will seek truth, not to defend a belief.
Please understand that I declare these things not because I think that I know it all, and I’m not saying that everything that Dalton Thomas teaches is false. He seems to be very sincere in his beliefs and His love for Messiah. What I’m showing is that what he teaches about prophecy fulfillment is false, because it’s based on the futuristic model that was created by the enemy to deceive the end-times saints.
I don’t proclaim this for my sake, because this isn’t about me. You can dismiss what I’m saying and defend your beliefs, but now you’re accountable and I’ve fulfilled my role as the watchman blowing the trumpet.
Dalton Thomas says that one of the most notable and conspicuous figures in the Bible is the antichrist.
This is true, yet Dalton doesn’t understand who is the antichrist that Daniel, Paul and John described.
The office of the papacy, the Popes of Rome, fulfill Bible prophecy as the ‘little horn‘ of Daniel 7, the ‘son of perdition‘ of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the ‘antichrist beast‘ of Revelation 13, who leads the ‘harlot‘ church of Rome.
Dalton Thomas proclaims that the antichrist will make war with the saints.
This is true, yet Dalton ignores that the antichrist beast Popes of Rome made war with Messiah’s Ekklesia during the Dark Ages and Inquisition, killing tens of millions of saints.
Daniel 11 gives the continuous historical narrative of events of the kingdoms of Medo-Persia, Greece and Antiochus Epiphanes, and then Rome.
Alexander the Great of Greece, the Mighty King, rose up and ruled with great dominion.
The Seleucids (kings of Syria, “the north”) and the Ptolemies (kings of Egypt, “the south”) had incessant wars.
Antiochus Epiphanes, the little horn, leader of the Seleucids, the vile person, surrounded Jerusalem with his armies (abomination of desolation) and killed 10’s of thousands of Jews. They defiled the sanctuary and caused the daily sacrifice to be taken away for 2,300 days (Daniel 8:14). His persecution of the Jews began in 171 B.C. and the temple was cleansed on December 25, 165 B.C., which is 2,300 days.
The Maccabean uprisings delivered the Jews in the reign of Antiochus, and faithfully served their people as rulers and priests for 130 years.
Roman King Herod exalted himself above all gods (leaders). To protect his kingdom, he decreed for the slaughter of the babes of Bethlehem, in an attempt to kill baby Jesus. Caesar Augustus conquered many countries such as Egypt, and took power of their treasures.
The Jewish Maccabean Revolt was a conflict, lasting from 167 to 160 BC, between a Judean rebel group known as the Maccabees and the Seleucid Empire. The Seleucid Empire was a Hellenistic state ruled by the Seleucid dynasty founded by Seleucus I Nicator following the division of the empire created by Alexander the Great.
Dalton Thomas says that Matthew 24 points to same time as Daniel 11.
The description in Messiah’s Olivet Discourse isolate the fulfillment to the people who living in the generation of the first century, who had living spaces on the rooftops which were connected to a walkway that led to the city wall, so that they didn’t have to come down into the street; who would have been shut in the city on the Sabbath. The majority of Messiah’s saints don’t live in Israel, so this doesn’t apply to them.
Luke 21:20-21 tells us that the abomination of desolation is when an army surrounds the Holy temple. The Jews understood this reference, as Daniel 8 points to Antiochus and his Grecian army doing exactly that.
The abomination of desolation that Messiah foretold in His Olivet Discourse took place in 66 AD when Cestius and his army surrounded the temple and were ready to take the city captive. Then for no explained reason, they left. The saints took the opportunity to flee to the mountains as Messiah told them.
Daniel 12 describes the 3 1/2 years of the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70 AD. There was 1290 days from when the abomination of desolation took place until the temple was captured and all sacrifices stopped. The siege lasted 45 days and ended abruptly when the last stronghold of Jews surrendered, which fulfilled the 1,335 days.
Dalton Thomas says that there are many antichrists on the earth, but not the antichrist.
Daniel calls him the ‘little horn‘ and the Popes rose to power out the ten horns, the ten kingdoms, of the fallen Roman Empire. Three kings would not bow to his authority and they were plucked out, removed from power.
Paul calls him the ‘son of perdition‘ and the Popes of Rome proclaim to lead Messiah’s one true church, thus they sit in the temple, which is the Church of Messiah, not a physical temple. They have already proclaimed to be God, to forgive sins and provide salvation, which is blasphemy.
John calls him the ‘beast‘ in Revelation 13, pointing to the Popes of Rome rising to power over the Roman beast kingdom after the last Western Roman Emperor was removed from power in 476 AD. They reigned in civil power for 1,260 years, from 538-1798 AD.
The Pope proclaims to leads Messiah’s church, but he teaches a false salvation message of works through the sacraments, which is anti-Christ.
The Pope proclaims that Mary is the intercessor to the Father, which is anti-Christ.
The Popes proclaim that Mary was without sin, which denies Messiah as the only sinless one, which is anti-Christ.
The Popes have proclaimed to be the Vicar of Christ, meaning the substitute Christ, or in place of Christ; which is anti-Christ.
The Popes caused tens of millions of saints to be tortured and killed during the Dark Ages and the Inquisition; which is anti-Christ.
The Popes have proclaimed that he can forgive sins, which is anti-Christ.
The Popes have proclaimed that salvation is only through him and his church, which is anti-Christ.
Now the Popes proclaim that all ways lead to God, which is anti-Christ.
Yet despite all of this evidence, the antichrist is hidden in plain sight.
Dalton Thomas says that the antichrist is against Israel.
This is not true, as the antichrist beast Pope and false prophet Jesuit Superior General control the land of Israel via the Rothschild family. They took control of the land to push their false, futuristic prophecy fulfillment explanations; and to use it as the capital of their coming One World Government.
Dalton Thomas says that the antichrist is moved by hatred for the holy everlasting covenant.
This is true, as the antichrist beast Popes have historically hated the true Israelites, those who believe by faith in Messiah, who came in the 70th week of Daniel 9 to ratify the everlasting covenant to atone for their sins.
The 70th week of Daniel 9 is about Messiah’s first advent, not about the end times or the antichrist.
Dalton Thomas says that the massive reason that there will be such a great harvest in the end times, is going to be because of the clarity of the saints who are describing what will happen next.
This statement really stirs up my righteous indignation, for it is people like Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson who are effectively hiding the glorious fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9, Messiah’s Olivet Discourse and most of Revelation during the last 1,900 years.
These fulfilled prophecies validate the authority of Scripture and the deity of Messiah, but Dalton and Joel are causing people to not understand them.
I pray that there will be a great awakening in these end times, that people will see the glorious truth of the fulfillment of these prophecies, to cast down the power of the enemy, to set the captives free and that a great multitude will be redeemed into the kingdom for the glory of our Heavenly Father and beloved Messiah!
