The premise of this new video series from Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson of FAI Studios is that they don’t believe that the saints will be raptured out before the great tribulation.
Though they are correct that there’s no Scriptural justification for a pretribulation rapture, there’s also no merit for a futuristic 70th week of Daniel 9, on which the whole concept of a futuristic 7-year tribulation period is based.
Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson teach that most of the prophecies in Revelation will be fulfilled during a futuristic 70th week of Daniel 9, which is a deception that was created by the enemy to deceive the end-times saints.
So the very premise of this new video series from Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas is based on a false foundation.
The 70th week of Daniel 9 prophecy foretold when Messiah would appear to carry out His ministry, and when (in the middle of the 70th week) He would confirm the (everlasting) covenant (that was mentioned in Daniel 9:4) with His blood as the Passover Lamb, to atone for our sins. It’s not about a 7-year tribulation period in the end times or the antichrist.
Dalton Thomas of FAI Studios says that the pretribulation rapture teaching is toxic, destructive, dangerous and the doctrine of demons.
Indeed, the concept of a pretrib rapture is all of those things. And the teaching that the 70th week of Daniel 9 and most of the prophecies in Revelation are yet to be fulfilled, is much worse!
Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson are assigning the 70th week of Daniel 9 prophecy, which is about Messiah coming to carry out His multiyear ministry, confirm the everlasting covenant to atone for our sins and rise again; to Messiah’s enemy, the antichrist. This is heretical!
They are proclaiming that the prophecies which Messiah foretold in Revelation are yet to be fulfilled, but the truth is that most of the prophecies have been fulfilled in exacting detail during the last 1,900 years. That robs Messiah of His glory as He foretold these events.
I prove this out in the Revelation Timeline Decoded video series and book.
Dalton Thomas of FAI Studios talks about the consequences of believing in a pretribulation rapture.
What about the consequences of believing the false script that the enemy created to deceive the end times saints?
What about the consequences of believing that most of Revelation is yet to be fulfilled?
In the sixth bowl of Revelation, Messiah proclaimed “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.” Revelation 16:15
The truth is that the seal and trumpet judgments have been fulfilled, as have the first five bowl judgments and we’re in the sixth bowl right now.
Those who have been misled by the false futuristic explanations that Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson are teaching, will be like the foolish virgins who don’t have the oil of Scriptural truth in their lamps to light their way.
Dalton Thomas of FAI Studios points to an Israeli peace agreement that the antichrist attacks.
The concept of an end-times one-man antichrist making and then breaking an Israel peace agreement is a false narrative that the enemy created to deflect blame away from the popes of Rome, as the Protestant Reformers are rightly proclaimed that 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 beast’ of Revelation 13, who leads the ‘harlot’ church of Rome.
The false, futuristic prophecy fulfillment explanations that Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson teach, serve to deflect blame away from the enemy of Messiah, the popes of Rome who proclaim to lead Messiah’s church but have misled billions of Catholics with a false gospel of works through the sacraments and that Mary is the intercessor to the Father.
Dalton Thomas of FAI Studios says that there’s really bad false doctrine out there that’s destroying the very fabric of the story.
Indeed that is true as the enemy has misled the end-times saints with the false, futuristic script of prophecy fulfillment.
Sadly, Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson have become experts at teaching the futuristic narrative that was created by the enemy in the 16th century.
The futuristic explanations were rejected by the saints for a few centuries, but the enemy has been very effective during the last century in promoting them through places like the esteemed Dallas Theological Seminary, so that they have spread around the world through DTS graduates.
Dalton Thomas of FAI Studios points to the pretrib rapture teaching as a modern doctrine.
That’s true, as the concept of the pre-tribulation rapture did not exist for 1800 years, until it was introduced by Minister Edward Irving who was promoting the false, futuristic explanations of prophecy fulfillment.
In the bigger picture, the futuristic explanations that Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson teach didn’t exist until the 16th century, when the Jesuit priests created them to deflect blame away from the antichrist beast pope; and they weren’t widely accepted until the last century.
Dalton Thomas of FAI Studios encourages people to warn people about the false teaching of pretribulation rapture.
With video review posts like this, I’m warning people about the false, futuristic teachings that Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson are promoting.
I prove out the historicist explanations of prophecy fulfillment in my Revelation Timeline Decoded video series; which invalidates the futurist explanations.
Dalton Thomas of FAI Studios think that his and Joel Richardson’s message will create a massive awakening.
That’s really interesting, as their prophecy fulfillment teachings are doing the very opposite. They are misleading people with a false script.
A massive awakening will take place when people learn the historical fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9, Messiah’s Olivet Discourse, and most of the prophecies in Revelation during the last 2000 years.
This will give the saints tangible evidence for their faith and validate the authority of the Bible and the deity of Messiah, so that they can prove these truths to the world.
Dalton Thomas of FAI Studios says that everyone who believes in the pretrib rapture was taught it, as it’s not in the text.
Indeed that’s true. And the same is true about people learning about a futuristic 70th week of Daniel 9, because the narrative is not about the end times or the antichrist.
The narrative of Daniel 9 is about what’s going to happen to the Jews when they are released from captivity on Babylon. Daniel was not praying about the end times or antichrist.
It’s about foretelling the exact year that Messiah would begin His ministry and the year that He would die for our sins.
The only reason that people assign it to a supposed end-times one-man antichrist is because people taught them to do so!
When you understand that the 70th week of Daniel 9 foretold the exact time that Messiah would carry out His ministry and die for our sins; then you know that it’s not about the antichrist.
Regarding the ‘covenant’ of Daniel 9:27, it’s the same covenant that Daniel just mentioned in Daniel 9:4, which already existed. It is the everlasting covenant that was made to Abraham, which Messiah came to ‘confirm’ with His blood as the Passover Lamb, which paid the price for our sins and ended the need for temple animal sacrifices.
We’ll all stand before our Righteous Judge to account for what we believe and teach about the most important prophecy in the Bible. I pray that you will read the explanations in this book about the 70th week of Daniel, compare it to Scripture, and discern it for yourself.

Dalton Thomas of FAI Studios says that the goal is not to win arguments, but to win people.
I agree with that statement! My role is to teach the truth of prophecy fulfillment, to expose the deceptions of the enemy, to cast the antichrist beast and false prophet down from power, to set the captives free, for a glorious awakening and harvest of souls in the end times.
Sadly, the teachings of Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson serve to deflect blame away from the antichrist beast popes and their harlot church of Rome. If the saints understood the false gospel of the Roman Catholic Church, they would minister to the 1.3 billion Catholics to help them see Scriptural truth so that they’re saved by faith in Messiah’s atoning work alone.
Dalton Thomas of FAI Studios says that Catholic theology is centered on the cross.
It’s amazing to me that Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson don’t understand that the Roman Catholic Church is the harlot church of Revelation 17, which is led by the antichrist beast popes!
First of all, Catholic theology teaches many concepts which are contrary to Scripture and antichrist. They teach a false gospel and that Mary is the intercessor to the Father.
As for the Roman crucifix, it is a graven image which is prohibited in the ten commandments, yet they fill Catholic churches and homes. The antichrist beast popes removed the second commandment from their list to hide their sins.
Worse than that, the Roman crucifix of the antichrist beast popes mocks Messiah as it keeps Him on the cross, making him the perpetual victim. But Messiah is not on the cross, He rose again and ascended to heaven.
Even worse than that is that the Roman crucifix is an image of the number 666 of the antichrist beast popes. The Chi Xi Stigma, which equates numerically to 666, is symbolized by a pierced Christ on a cross, which is exactly what the Catholic crucifix represents.
The prophecy fulfillment teachings of Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson make my heart hurt, for they are misleading many people.
The explanations of Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas 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.
