Video Description: MARANATHA Global Bible Study // The Book Of Revelation. Session 23: Releasing the Trumpet Judgments on The Antichrist’s Coalition – 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 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 trumpet judgments are against the antichrist coalition.
No, the trumpet judgments were against the pagan Roman Empire, as army after army were sent to attack the 1/3rd parts of the Western, Central and Eastern territories. This led to the fall of the Roman Empire which is documented by Edward Gibbon in his six-volume work called ‘The History Of The Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire.’
As for the antichrist, prophecy is not pointing to just one man, that is a deception from the enemy to hide the antichrist. 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 says that these judgments are released by the global church.
That’s an interesting perspective because it was the blood of the martyrs of pagan Roman Empire that cried out for vengeance.
This prophecy is pointing to the martyrs of the pagan Roman Emperors, who killed millions of saints. These are the saints who are referred to in the fifth seal, whose blood symbolically cried out for vengeance, which came during the seal and trumpet judgments that caused the decline and the fall of the Roman Empire.
These are the saints of the Smyrna church era, who were persecuted especially hard from 303-312 AD, the ten days of tribulation that Messiah foretold (one day = one prophetic year) when Diocletian tried to wipe out Messiah’s Ekklesia of saints.
Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson foolishly ignore all of the saints who have been killed by the enemy and apply everything to the end times.
That said, we all should be praying for vengeance against the antichrist beast Popes and the false prophet Jesuit Superior General, to expose their prophecy fulfillment deceptions, to cast them down from power, to set the captives free for a great harvest in the end times.
Dalton Thomas points to 1/3rd, saying that the judgments are limited.
The word ‘earth’ is Greek ‘ge’ which can point to a region of land. John is pointing to the known Roman Empire, not the whole earth.
The trumpet judgments were against the pagan Roman Empire. The first four trumpet judgments were against the Western Roman Empire, and they led to the last Western Roman Emperor being removed from power in 476 AD, which was the ‘deadly head wound’ as the office ceased to exist. The fifth trumpet was against the central part of the Empire and the sixth trumpet was against the eastern part of the Empire, which led to the capital of Constantinople falling because of the large cannons, which emitted ‘fire, smoke and brimstone.’
Dalton Thomas says that the pretrib rapture concept is going to set people up for massive disillusionment and pain.
Though that is true, Dalton’s false, futuristic explanations of the fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9, Messiah’s Olivet Discourse and Revelation, are doing exactly that, setting people up to be disillusioned by how the end times plays out, as they’re following a false script.
Dalton Thomas points to the hail and fire of the first trumpet targeting the agricultural resources.
Hail means war in Bible symbolism, and Elohim caused the Goths, who were led by Alaric, to move in the direction in which literal hail came (north to south). They attacked the Roman Empire from 400-410 AD, in Greece, Gaul and Spain. Then 300,000 Goths invaded Italy. The fire represents the ‘scorched earth’ policy in their invasions of enemy territory.
Dalton Thomas says that the second trumpet, targeting 1/3rd of the earth’s ships destroyed, 1/3rd of the world’s oceans.
A mountain in Biblical symbolism represents a great nation and a sea is a large group of people. It represents Elohim sending the Vandals, led by Genseric, to attack the coast-lands of the Roman territory of the Mediterranean and all the islands from 425-470 AD, leaving bloodshed and confusion in their wake.
Dalton Thomas says that the third trumpet points to a meteor targeting fresh water.
A star in prophecy symbolizes a leader. Elohim sent this great burning star, Attila the king of the Huns, who was called “the scourge of God.” Attila and his 800,000 man army rose quickly and flashed across the land in 451 AD, and desolated the Italian Alps, which is the source of the Danube, Rhine and Po rivers. The dead bodies in the rivers made the water ‘bitter’ (wormwood).
Dalton Thomas says that during the fourth trumpet, 1/3rd of the sun is darkened and there’s 1/3rd less light.
Given that Dalton says that the literal sun was darkened during the sixth seal, it’s odd that he now thinks that it’s darkened again. He’s taking Revelation literal, instead of seeing that Messiah uses symbols to point to a literal fulfillment, which is why he’s not seeing the fulfillment.
The sun, moon and stars, can symbolize leadership structure. Here it represents Elohim using Odoacer and the Heruli, a branch of the Goths, to cause the downfall of Roman leadership when Romulus Augustalus, the last Western Roman Emperor (the sun) of the West was captured in 476 AD. The hierarchy of Roman leaders (moon and stars) would have lost power too.
Dalton Thomas says that the trumpet judgments weaken the antichrist empire.
The trumpet judgments of Revelation were about the pagan Roman Empire and they led to its fall. The antichrist beast Popes then were given civil and ecclesiastic authority over the Roman beast kingdom.
Once again, he’s pointing to a one-man antichrist in the end-times, which is a deception that was created in the sixteenth century by the Jesuits, to deflect blame away from the Pope, as the Protestant Reformers all 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 ‘antichrist beast’ of Revelation 13, who leads the ‘harlot’ church of Rome.
Dalton Thomas points to being able to identify the first trumpet, so that we can declare where we’re at in the fulfillment of Revelation, to confirm what we’re seeing.
He says that we will be able to foretell what will take place, to prove to the world that Messiah’s apocalyptic vision is authoritative.
Amazing, he’s missing that most of Revelation has been fulfilled in exacting detail during the last 1,900 years, which validates the authority of Scripture and the deity of Messiah. When the saints learn this truth, they will be able to proclaim it to the nations and many will be saved.
What Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson are teaching is effectively hiding the glorious truth about the fulfillment of prophecy. They are effectively hiding the glory of Messiah who foretold these things 1,900 years ago. I pray that they and an army of people come to find out the truth, so that we cast down the power of the enemy for a great harvest of souls for the kingdom, for the glory of our Heavenly Father and beloved 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.
