This Revelation Timeline Decoded post reviews a video by Dalton Thomas of FAI STUDIOS, called THE BOOK OF REVELATION // Session 35: Martyr Mentality vs Persecution Complex.’
Dalton Thomas points to tribulation, persecution during the end times.
The times of tribulation that are referred to in Revelation took place when the Roman Emperors carried out ten persecution periods of Messiah’s saints, and when the antichrist beast Popes caused tens of millions of saints to be killed during the Dark Ages and Inquisition.
Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson mistakenly assign them to an end-times 3 1/2 year time of great tribulation.

Dalton Thomas says that there is a falling away taking place, but we’re not in the thick of it yet.
The ‘falling away’ that the Apostle Paul was pointing to, happened in the 4th century when Satan used Roman Emperor Constantine to create Roman Christianity, which is contrary to Scripture and is based on pagan-god worship. Many of the saints compromised their faith to join with Rome, after hundreds of years of harsh persecution.
The ‘restrainer’ that the Apostle Paul was pointing to was the Western Roman Emperor, who prevented the Pope’s from taking power. When the last Western Roman Emperor was removed from power in 476 A.D., the Popes were given civil and ecclesiastic authority shortly afterwards in 538 A.D. The Popes have proclaimed to be God, to be Jesus Christ in the flesh, to forgive sins and to provide salvation; all of which is blasphemy.

Dalton Thomas says that the people will persecute Christians because of their support for Israel.
Dalton’s blind support of Israel distorts his ability to understand prophecy and history. Satan has used the leaders of the Roman beast kingdom to make war with the saints because of their faith in Messiah.
He has used the Roman Emperors and antichrist beast Popes to make war with the saints, none of which had anything to do with support for Israel.
Dalton Thomas says that the disciples and Christians being killed in the Roman Empire was due to their identification with Israel.
This is an absurd declaration! Revelation 12:17 tells us the reason, “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
Dalton Thomas seems to support unbelieving Jews rebelling against Roman suppression in the first century, but he mocks Americans rebelling against tyranny.
Nobody is declaring that the lock downs are due to persecution for being a Christian! He has an underlying attitude towards people in the West, yet he’s the one who is teaching false prophecy fulfillment explanations and is blindly supporting the Zionist state of Israel which is controlled by Satanism Lord Rothschild per the Balfour Agreement.
That is why there’s a Satanic hexagram on the Israeli flag. That is why there’s Satanic-Masonic symbols on the Israeli Supreme Court building.
Dalton Thomas says that ISIS and Muslims don’t kill people for just being a Christian, instead it’s because of your support for Israel.
This is another ridiculous statement from Dalton! Muslims don’t say ‘renounce your support of Israel or die,’ they say ‘convert to Islam or die.’
Muslims oppose Zionist Israel because of their abuse and murder of Palestinians, many of whom are Muslims. They oppose Israel because of their systematic attacks on Muslim countries around them.
Dalton Thomas points out that people don’t have an issue with Jews but with Zionism.
This is true, because the Zionists are evil Khazarians who revere the Satanic Babylonian Talmud and Egyptian Kabbalah. They are the people who Messiah foretold in Revelation 3:9 are “of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie.”
Most Jews in Zionist Israel are Khazarian Jews who descend from people in Khazarian who converted to Judaism and are not the descendants of Abraham.
Rabbinical Torah Jews believe that the Zionist state of Israel is illegitimate in the eyes of God and that it DOES NOT represent Jews or Judaism. They believe that the Ashkenazi Jews have illegitimately seized the name “Israel” and have no right to speak in the name of the Jewish people!
They believe that contemporary sovereignty over the Holy Land belongs to those who have lived there for centuries, the Palestinians. They desire to live in peace and harmony with their Muslim Brethren, as their ancestors did.

Dalton Thomas points to the Jewish uprising in 66 AD, says that the Romans sent an army to stop it, but it failed due to Jewish resistance.
That’s not what Jewish historian Josephus reports. He said that the Roman army could have taken the city, but that they left for no explained reason. Capturing the city at that point would have preserved Jerusalem and the temple, which was destined to be desolated.
The sign of the abomination of desolation in Messiah’s Olivet Discourse was an army surrounding Jerusalem. When this took place and the army left, Messiah’s saints took the opportunity to flee to the mountains for safety.
The unbelieving Jews attacked the fleeing army, killing thousands of soldiers, which incited Rome and brought on the judgment of Jerusalem, the temple and the Jewish nation during the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70 AD.
It was the fulfillment of Daniel 9:26 which foretold that the city and temple would be desolated. This was punishment for the Jewish leaders continuing in rebellion against the Heavenly Father and for delivering His Son up to be killed.
It was the fulfillment of the time of tribulation in Messiah’s Olivet Discourse, as 1.1 million Jews died in and around Jerusalem from famine, pestilence, infighting, suicide, evisceration, crucifixion and by the Roman sword.

Dalton Thomas is well-spoken and seems very smart and sincere. But his explanations reveal that he is misled. I pray that he comes to learn the glorious truth about the fulfillment of Revelation, for in it we see the glory of Messiah.
Messiah’s apocalyptic vision is a war manual, designed to hide the explanation from those who should not understand it. It uses symbolic words that are defined in the Old Testament to point to a literal fulfillment. If you read Revelation only from a literal perspective, the interpretation is hidden.
Understanding the vision is like taking a Biblical final exam. If you’ve read the whole Word, you will have seen the symbolism that Messiah uses and can apply it to the fulfillment.
If you read Revelation as one chronological narrative, the prophecies seem out of sequence. That’s because it has four chronological layers, each of which spans from when it was written until Messiah returns.
This book explains the prophecies of Revelation on a timeline to help you see how the four chronological layers interact with each other, so that you can comprehend the whole vision.
You will learn how to identify who fulfills the role of the son of perdition, the antichrist beast, the false prophet, and the harlot called ‘Mystery, Babylon the Great.’ You will understand the proper context of the seal, trumpet, and bowl judgments; the little book of Revelation 10, and the two witnesses of Revelation 11.
Whether you’re a novice at Bible prophecy or someone who has studied it extensively, I provide an explanation that is easy to understand yet has the depth of verse by verse explanations to provide you the evidence you need to prove it out.
