This Revelation Timeline Decoded post reviews a video by Dalton Thomas of FAI STUDIOS, called ‘THE BOOK OF REVELATION // Session 16: Coming World War and Global Economic Collapse.’
Dalton Thomas Revelation Video Description: MARANATHA Global Bible Study // The Book Of Revelation Session 16: Coming World War and Global Economic Collapse – Dalton Thomas.
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 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 the seal judgments point to a New World Order that is to come.
In my previous post about his Dalton Thomas Revelation New World Order Video, I showed how the first seal is about the pagan Roman Empire, particularly Emperor Trajan, conquering other nations, and riding white horses and wearing a laurel wreath crown in their victory parades.
Dalton Thomas says that Revelation 13:2 gives the future one-man antichrist authority.
He points to future persecution of the saints by the antichrist, but ignores the witness of the tens of millions of saints who were tortured and killed during the Dark Ages and Inquisition by orders of the antichrist beast Popes.
The antichrist beast of Revelation is not just one man, it is the office of the papacy, the Popes of Rome; who pretend to be a priest of Messiah’s church, but are really a betrayer who teaches a false Gospel and who persecuted His saints.

Dalton Thomas says that the second seal points to final world war.
He says that there will be peace with the first seal, because of the antichrist covenant of the 70th week of Daniel 9. Then peace will be shattered with the second seal.
Amazingly, he then mentions that his kids are studying the brutal Roman Empire, but doesn’t understand that the second seal of Revelation points to the bloody civil wars in the Roman Empire. The red horse represents a bloody time in the Roman Empire from 185-284 AD, 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.
Roman Empire historian Edward Gibbon document these events in his epic six-volume work, The History Of The Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire. The Protestant Reformers and great theologians of the 16th-20th centuries all pointed to the second seal applying to the bloody civil wars in the Roman Empire. Yet, Dalton pushes their witness aside.

Dalton Thomas says that the future one-man antichrist emerges in the middle of the 70th week of Daniel.
He points to Daniel 9:27, that the antichrist will confirm a covenant and bring an end to sacrifice. He says that the word ‘covenant’ in Daniel is only used in regard to the nation of Israel, but then misses the fulfillment.
Daniel 9:4 points to the ‘covenant’ that is being referred to in Daniel 9:27; the everlasting covenant of mercy, the Abrahamic covenant, which Messiah came to confirm/ratify with His blood as the Spotless Lamb.
When Abraham took Isaac up to offer him as a sacrifice, Isaac asked Abraham ‘where is the lamb?’ Abraham said that the Father would provide a lamb. The Father saw Abraham’s faithfulness and provided a ram to sacrifice that day, and Messiah is the promised Lamb whose death in the middle of the 70th week of Daniel 9 ended the need for temple sacrifices.
Read The Covenant Of The 70th Week Of Daniel
Dalton Thomas points to the antichrist setting up the abomination of desolation in the middle of the 70th week of Daniel 9.
It’s amazing to me that Dalton lives in Israel and that he’s a staunch defender of the Jewish people, but he doesn’t understand that Messiah’s Olivet Discourse is about the desolation of Jerusalem, the second temple and the Jewish nation, during the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70 AD.
Messiah had just berated the Jewish leaders for continuing in their rebellion against the Heavenly Father and for seeking to kill Him, and He proclaimed that righteous judgment would come upon them in that generation. Then He proclaimed that the temple that He just came out of would be desolated.
The context of the ‘abomination of desolation‘ is Messiah declaring judgment on the Jewish leaders and the ‘desolation’ of the second temple; which took place in 70 A.D. It says when you see the abomination of desolation, then flee Judea, so it’s a sign that people in Judea saw. It’s not about the end times.
Luke 21:20-21 tells us what it was, an army surrounding Holy Jerusalem, which Josephus documented as taking place in November of 66 AD, when Cestius and his army came to Jerusalem to end the Jewish rebellion. Messiah’s saints in Judea saw the sign, and knew that they needed to take the first opportunity to flee to the mountains of Pella for safety.
That opportunity came when Cestius and his army left Jerusalem for no explained reason. Messiah’s saints urgently left Jerusalem like Messiah told them to, but the Jews stayed. Then three strong divisions of the Roman army were sent to Judea, which led to 1.1 million Jews dying in and around Jerusalem from famine, pestilence, infighting, suicide, crucifixion and by the Roman sword.
I explain the fulfillment of the Olivet Discourse in detail in my book.

Dalton Thomas says that Ezekiel 38 is pointing to Israel dwelling in unwalled villages and in peace and safety.
The irony of this explanation is amazing! As Dalton pointed out, all of modern Israel is surrounded by walls. They’re not going to take down those walls.
Gog and Magog have already come against the unwalled cities, when Lord Rothschild and the Zionist Jews invaded Palestine and stole the land of the Palestinian’s unwalled cities and killed many Palestinians.
The land was given to Lord Rothschild with the Balfour Declaration. He bought up the land from Muslims of the Ottoman Empire, He funded the building of cities like Tel Aviv which is why the main street is named after him. His face is on the currency of Israel. He serves the god of this world, which is why there’s a Satanic HEXagram on the Israeli flag, not a menorah. The Israeli Prime Ministers changed their last names to sound more Jewish and they all came from Russia and Poland.
The narrative of the Zionist state of Israel in the end-times misleads many people. A true Israelite, is a Jew or Gentile who has a covenant relationship with the Father through the Son. Messiah’s Ekklesia of saints is the temple in which the Heavenly Father dwells, which is called Holy Jerusalem in Revelation.
Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson are misleading people with their futuristic explanations.
I teach the historical fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9, Messiah’s Olivet Discourse and Messiah’s apocalyptic vision in Revelation; in my three books. You can read a summary of the content @ BibleProphecyDecoded.com
I pray that you will seek truth, not to defend a belief, for we’re all going to stand before our righteous judge to account for what we believed and taught about prophecy fulfillment.
