Video description: MARANATHA Global Bible Study // The Book Of Revelation. Session 30: The Two Witnesses and the Battle for Jerusalem – Dalton Thomas.
Dalton Thomas says that we should not divide about the chronology of the fulfillment of the prophecies in Revelation.
We don’t need to divide, but we need to call out false prophecy fulfillment teachers who are misleading people so that they’re not prepared for how the end-times will play out or for Messiah’s return! And that is what Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson are doing!
Dalton Thomas says that this is the best that he and Joel Richardson have about prophecy fulfillment at this time.
What Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson teach is the false, futuristic explanations which were created by the enemy in the sixteenth century, to deflect blame away from the Popes, as the Protestant Reformers proclaimed that 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 dismisses that the temple in Revelation 11 is the Ekklesia of Messiah.
He mockingly says that it’s a real rebuilt temple in Jerusalem, not symbolism, and then mistakenly makes references to Matthew 24 and 2 Thessalonians 2 to make his case.
Matthew 24 is about the second temple, which Messiah just came out of and said that it would be desolated. It has nothing to do with the end times, as Dalton proclaims. Read The Olivet Discourse Deception
2 Thessalonians 2 is about the son of perdition Popes proclaiming to lead Messiah’s church, which is the temple of God. It’s not about a physical temple. Read The Son Of Perdition Of 2 Thessalonians 2
Revelation 11 is not about a rebuilt third temple, it’s about using the rule of Scripture to determine who is a part of Messiah’s Ekklesia, the temple of the Heavenly Father. Watch this Measuring The Temple Of Revelation 11 video.
Dalton Thomas says that the easiest way to read and understand the book of Revelation is to just read it and don’t interpret it.
He says, don’t try to figure out what it means. Just let it say what it means.
What he fails to understand is that the symbolism of Revelation is declared in the Bible, mostly in the Old Testament. If you take it symbolically, like Preterists do, then you miss the fulfillment. If you take it literally as futurists like Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson do, then you miss the fulfillment.
Revelation is a coded war manual, and the symbols point to a literal fulfillment. Read Revelation Is Symbolic And Literal
Dalton Thomas mocks that the forty and two months could be 1,260 years.
He ignores the witness of the great theologians of the 16th-20th century, who all proclaimed that the antichrist beast Popes reigned in power for 1,260 years, from 538-1798 AD. Without this understanding, one can’t comprehend that the two witnesses are not just two men. Read 1,260 Years Of Great Tribulation
Dalton Thomas points to two men as the two witnesses.
I prove that the two witnesses are the Scriptures and the saints, who witnessed about the true Gospel, to oppose the false gospel of the antichrist beast Popes and their harlot church of Rome. They witnessed that the Popes of Rome are the enemy of Messiah and His saints.

Dalton Thomas says that their bodies lie dead in the city of Jerusalem.
The narrative of Revelation is the historical battle between the Satan-empowered leaders of the Roman beast kingdom, which is called the great city; fighting against Messiah and His Ekklesia of saints, who are called Holy Jerusalem.
During the Dark Ages, the antichrist beast Popes banned and burned the Scriptures and killed tens of millions of saints. They were so relentless that in May 1514 AD, they proclaimed that there were no witnesses left against them and that all of Christendom was under their authority. Read Revelation 11 – The Two Witnesses
Dalton Thomas mocks that the two witnesses can be the Old and New Testaments or that it can be the church.
Messiah proclaimed that the Scriptures testify about Him and He said that His saints are His witnesses. We see that the two church eras of Thyatira and Sardis witnessed against the antichrist beast Popes during the 1260-year reign of power from 538-1798 AD.
We see how the Popes focused on eliminating the two witnesses of the Scriptures and the saints, which testify against them. Many saints were killed for proclaiming these things, as the word witness means a martyr. Read Historical Witnesses Against Antichrist
Dalton Thomas says that you can’t allegorize the lampstands.
We don’t have to, as Messiah gave us the clear definition in Revelation 1:20, The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
Messiah is pointing to seven church eras in Revelation 2-3. He proclaimed that the seven churches are seven candlesticks, seven lampstands. So when we see two lampstands in the narrative of the two witnesses in Revelation 11, we know that Messiah is pointing to two church eras. And we can look at history to see that He is describing the two church eras of Thyatira and Sardis which existed from 538-1798 AD. Read Revelation 2-3 Seven Church Eras
Dalton Thomas says that you should only symbolically interpret something if the Bible tells you to.
He says, ‘If it doesn’t, it’s not symbolic.’
This is a a ridiculous assertion, as the Bible is filled with symbolism that points to a literal fulfillment. An example is that of the heavenly bodies; the sun, moon and stars; being darkened. This symbolism was used to point to the downfall of the empires of Babylon (Isaiah 13) and against Edom (Isaiah 34), Egypt (Ezekiel 32), the Jewish nation (Matthew 24) and the pagan Roman Empire (Revelation 6). Read Revelation 6 – 6th Seal Earthquake
I pray that Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas find the truth about prophecy fulfillment, for they are declaring things which they will regret when they stand before 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.
