David Carrico and Jon Pounders of Midnight Ride Exposed

This Revelation Timeline Decoded post reviews videos from David Carrico and Jon Pounders of Midnight Ride, to show you how their explanations are misleading people. 

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. David Carrico and Jon Pounders 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 David Carrico and Jon Pounders teaches is false. What I’m showing is that what they teach 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.

White Horseman of the Apocalypse and the 7 Headed Dragon video review.

David Carrico and Jon Pounders of Midnight Ride are aligning the birth pains of Matthew 24 to the seal judgments of Revelation, and applying them to the end times.

This is a false narrative, as the context of Messiah’s Olivet Discourse is the desolation of the temple that He just came out of, in which He rebuked the Jewish leaders who were seeking to kill Him. He proclaimed that judgment would come upon them in that generation. We know that within a generation, the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70 AD caused Jerusalem, the temple and the Jewish nation to be desolated. 1.1 million Jews died in and around Jerusalem from famine, pestilence, infighting, suicide, evisceration, crucifixion and by the Roman sword.

All of the things that Messiah described from Matthew 23:36 to Matthew 24:33 were fulfilled by 70 AD when the Romans desolated Jerusalem, the temple, and the Jewish nation. The enemy has deceived people about the symbolism of the sun, moon, and stars being darkened; Messiah coming in power and glory; and the elect being gathered. But the Bible gives the proper definitions for the symbols.

The term ‘this generation’ was used ten times in Matthew, the last time in Matthew 24:34. The previous nine times it points to the Jews who lived during Messiah’s first advent. When you take Messiah at His Word you see the fulfillment of His Olivet Discourse and how the things that He described took place in that generation of Jews, for their punishment of continuing their rebellion against the Father, for delivering Messiah up to be killed, and for persecuting His disciples. They proclaimed ‘let His blood be on us,’ and that prophetic statement was fulfilled in that generation.

If you’re seeking for truth, and not to defend a belief, this book will prove out the fulfillment of Messiah’s Olivet Discourse. It will help you see that it’s not about the end times so that you’re not misled about the fulfillment of Revelation, as we await Messiah’s promised return.


David Carrico says that Revelation 12 is about Israel and a Jewish crown.

That is false, as Revelation 12 is about the pagan Roman beast kingdom, which Satan used to try to wipe out Messiah’s Ekklesia of saints. Messiah’s church was born out of much tribulations, as the Satan-empowered Roman Emperors persecuted them during ten persecution periods.

The last one from 303-312 AD was the most painful, just like child birth, when Diocletian sought to wipe out Messiah’s Ekklesia. These are the saints of the church era of Smyrna, who Messiah foretold would face ten days (ten prophet years) of tribulation. These are the saints in Revelation 12:11 who overcame by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. These are the martyrs of the fifth seal, whose blood cried out for vengeance against the pagan Roman Empire.

David Carrico gave an explanation of why the crowns move from the seven heads in Revelation 12, to the ten horns in Revelation 13; but applied it to Israel.

He seems to make everything about Israel, which is a false narrative that deflects blame away from Rome.

The crowns were on the seven heads in Revelation 12 because John is telling us that the pagan Roman Empire is in power, which had seven forms of government, seven kings. Then after the last Western Roman Emperor (the restrainer of 2 Thessalonians 2) was removed from power in 476 AD, during the fourth trumpet judgment, the Western Empire split into ten civil kingdoms.

Then the antichrist beast Popes of Rome took power in 538 AD and the ten kings gave their power and authority to the Pope. So John is telling us in Revelation 13 that the Popes, who rose out of the sea of people of the ten kingdoms of the fallen Roman Empire, took power.

David Carrico says that the five kings in Revelation 17:10 that have fallen are Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia and Greece; that the sixth is Rome and the seventh is Israel.

Then they list Israel as the first beast, which makes no sense, as Greece would be the sixth that was in existence when John wrote Revelation. And David says the eighth is Israel and it is the beast that was, and is not, and is to come. He’s saying that Israel existed, and then it was not and now the deadly head wound has been healed in the Zionist state of Israel.

That all is a false narrative. The angel is showing him how the harlot Roman Catholic Church rose to power. It’s pointing to seven forms of government of the Roman Empire, the same seven heads (kings) that are declared in Revelation 12, which had crowns on them. Five had passed when John wrote down the Revelation vision. The sixth was the Emperor’s who reigned until 476 AD, when they were removed from power. The seventh existed during the short time from 476-538 AD. Then the eighth king, the Popes of Rome took power over the Western Roman Empire.

It’s the Popes who lead the harlot church of Revelation 17. This is the same narrative as the little horn of Daniel 7, in that the Popes took power over the ten kingdoms of the fallen Roman Empire.

David Carrico says that the deadly head wound in Revelation was to Israel and now it’s been healed.

That is a false narrative, as the deadly head wound was to the office of the Western Roman Emperor, which ended in 476 AD. The Popes then took power over the Roman beast kingdom and proclaimed the Emperor’s title of Pontifex Maximus, the leader of church and state, thus the deadly head wound was healed.

David Carrico says that Revelation 13:12 is pointing to Satan infilling one man, I supposed the one-man antichrist.

That is a false narrative. John in Revelation 12-13 is describing the leaders of the fourth beast of Daniel, during three phases the Roman beast kingdom. He points to the Satan-empowered pagan Roman Emperors of Revelation 12; the sea beast phase of the antichrist beast Popes reigning in power for 1,260 years from 538-1798 AD; and the false prophet Jesuit Superior General who rose to power out of the land (earth, ge in the Greek) of the beast, the Vatican.

It is the Jesuit Superior General who was given authority in the 16th century, who lived in the land (earth) of the Vatican. It is the General who caused the first four bowl judgments to be poured out on countries which had banned the Jesuits. It is the General who used Napoleon to remove the Pope from power as part of the fifth bowl. The black pope has controlled the Vatican ever since, and he exercises his authority in front of the white pope.

Horns point to leaders. The earth beast phase of the Roman beast kingdom has two horns, the black pope and the white pope, the false prophet Jesuit Superior General and the antichrist beast Pope; who pretend to serve Messiah (lamb-like), but really serve Satan (the dragon).

The General in Rome controls the city-state corporation of the District of Columbia, the Zionist state of Israel via the Rothschild family and almost every country in the world.

Read Revelation 13 – The Roman Earth Beast Phase

David Carrico cites Albert Barnes, John Gill and Matthew Poole, who prove that the office of the papacy is the son of perdition and the antichrist beast; but somehow David either ignores and hides that explanation.

Revelation Timeline Decoded by David Nikao Wilcoxson - end times prophecy

There’s much more that I could address in the White Horseman of the Apocalypse and the 7 Headed Dragon video, but the bottom line is that David Carrico and Jon Pounders of Midnight Ride are proclaiming that most of Revelation is yet future, and that is a false narrative, as most of it’s been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years as the Satan-empowered Roman beast kingdom has made war with Messiah and His saints.

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 sealtrumpet, 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.


Q&A: America in Bible Prophecy Exposed video review.

David Carrico says that he thinks that one of the presidents of the US is the first beast and the second beast, the false prophet, is the Pope of Rome.

This is a false narrative, as Daniel foretold four beast kingdoms in Daniel 2 and 7; Babylon > Medo-Persia > Greece > Rome, the last of which stays in power until Messiah returns.

In Revelation, John picks up the narrative of the Roman beast kingdom, describing the leaders of the three different phases.

Revelation 12 describes the pagan Emperors who tried to wipe out Messiah’s early church, making it’s birth painful.

The Revelation 13 sea beast phase of the Roman beast kingdom describes the Popes of Rome rising to power over the sea of people of the ten kingdoms of the fallen Roman Empire. They reigned in power from 1260 years, from 538-1798, and banned and burned the Scriptures and persecuted the saints during the Dark Ages and Inquisition.

The Revelation 13 earth beast phase of the Roman beast kingdom describes the Jesuit General rising to power out of the earth (land) of the Vatican. The black pope and the white pope are the two horns, the two leaders, who pretend to be priests of Messiah (like a lamb) but really serve Satan (the dragon). They are pushing the world into their One World Government, to exalt their god Satan.

Read Prophecy Points To The Leader Of The Roman Beast Study

David Carrico says that the ‘great city’ in Revelation 11 is Jerusalem, in Revelation 17 it’s Rome and in Revelation 18 it’s New York city.

This is a false narrative. We see that Messiah declared in Revelation 1:19 ‘Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter.’ In other words, we need to view Revelation from the perspective that John had, about what was past, what was the circumstances when he wrote down the vision, and what was future.

The ‘great city’ of John’s day is Rome, the city of seven hills. The Roman beast kingdom was in power. So it’s the great city of Revelation 11, 17 and 18.

Proclaiming that it’s three different things is absurd and very misleading!

David Carrico says that Israel is all over the place in Revelation.

The opposite is true, as most of Revelation is about Rome. Messiah gave us a historical narrative of the Satan-empowered leaders of the Roman beast kingdom fighting against Messiah’s saints.

The antichrist beast is the primary figure. He is one who comes in the place of Christ, who pretends to be his representative, but deceives people. That is what the Popes do as they proclaim to lead Messiah’s church but they teach a false Gospel and that Mary is the intercessor to the Father. They now deceive 1.3 billion Catholics.

The Popes take the title of the “Vicar of Christ” which means in place of Christ, which is antichrist. The Popes have already proclaimed to be God, to be Jesus Christ in the flesh, to forgive sins and to provide salvation; which is blasphemy.

The Popes have banned and burned the Scriptures, and caused tens of millions of saints to be killed during the Dark Ages and the Inquisition.

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.

Read Revelation 13 – The Roman Sea Beast Phase

David Carrico and Jon Pounders of Midnight Ride are very knowledgeable and likable, and they cite Scripture and seem very authoritative. But the bottom line with anyone teach Revelation prophecy fulfillment, is ‘are they exposing the enemy of Messiah and His saints?

David and Jon teach a futuristic son of perdition and antichrist; but the office of the papacy, the Popes of Rome, fulfill those roles.

They also teach a futuristic Revelation great tribulation period, but that was fulfilled during the 1,260 year reign of power of the antichrist beast Popes, from 538-1798 AD, when they caused Catholics to kill over 50 million saints.

What David and Jon teach, misleads people and deflects blame from the antichrist beast Pope and the false prophet Jesuit Superior General. We can’t win the battle against the enemy, if we don’t know their identity.

They teach that Mystery Babylon is the whole world system, but it’s the Roman Catholic Church, the idolatrous which the Popes proclaim is Messiah’s one true church. Their priests wear purple and scarlet, and use the golden cup during their Babylonian Eucharist ceremony which mimics the rebirth of their incarnate christ child, Tammuz.

The Jesuits of the Vatican control the world through their many front organizations of the Illuminati, Freemasonry, the Knights of Malta, the Knights of Columbus, etc. So their Babylonian system has influence everywhere, but the harlot who has shed the blood of the saints is the Roman Catholic Church of the antichrist beast Pope which now deceives 1.3 billion Catholics with a false salvation message.

I’ve searched through all of the David Carrico and Jon Pounders of Midnight Ride videos, and did not see one of them exposing the antichrist beast Pope and false prophet Jesuit Superior General.

These are the very enemy’s of Messiah, who He will came and capture. They are the enemy of Messiah’s saints and they use people groups to covertly make war with believers. They are the enemy of the world, as they push it into their One World Government.

And yet David and Jon are not identifying them as such, which tells you that they are either very ignorant or they are controlled opposition. If you know of videos from them that expose the antichrist beast Pope and false prophet Jesuit Superior General, let me know.

  1. David,

    Good work exposing these two.!

    I use to listen to them and had to stop. It was more like a Circus Side Show in many ways. I started listening to them as they DO acknowledge the Feasts and have Gatherings in and around the Indiana area during the Feasts. That said , Carrico would always says ” Okay Everybody , Grab your POPCORN and join us on the MIDNIGHT RIDE !!! ” To me, it sounded more like ‘the world’ than a sincere bible study . While they did expose some things,there are things on the internet about these two that just shouldn’t be ignored.

    Carrico’s wife Donna also did a video / interview on Molestation and how she talks to women who have multiple personalities and she talks to each personality . I remember Donna saying that one ‘personality’ asking her if it was okay to have “A picnic with God” (or something close to it ) where Donna responds “Sure, Its Okay ! ” The minute I heard this , I was done listening to this group.!

    THANK YOU again David for exposing them . Abba / Father Bless you !

    • Thank you for sharing your insight Lorie! I would be interested in knowing their backgrounds, such as were they Catholics at some point? Did they attend Catholic/Jesuit schools?

      All I know is that if people are not pointing to the false prophet Jesuit Superior General and the antichrist beast Pope, then they’re misleading people.

      Keep learning and growing in The Way!

    • I disagree with you David and anyone saying that David Carrico and Jon Pounders isn’t warning the people of the Pope and the Jesuit Order. I have been learning a great deal from these two and they do warn us of these groups and do a thorough teaching of the scriptures and prophecy! Many times they mention these groups and other evil influences that are shaping these end times.
      Making these kinds of statements against them is very misleading and doing a great dis service to anyone trying to find the truth. Plus they tell you to search the scriptures for yourself and allow the Holy Spirit to witness and teach you.
      I will continue to watch them and listen to them. My understanding has greatly increased and my hunger for the word of GOD grows daily as does my faith.

      • Deborah, warning people about the Pope and Jesuit Order is not enough! Are they telling you that the office of the papacy fulfills prophecy as the little horn of Daniel 7, the son of perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2 and the antichrist beast of Revelation who leads the harlot church of Rome?

        Are they telling you that the Jesuit Superior General is the false prophet, and that he controls almost the whole world through his many front organizations?

        Are they telling you that most of Revelation has already been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years and that there’s not much left to be fulfilled before Messiah returns?

        No, they are not telling you those things. I appreciate that they teach some truth about the 70th week of Daniel and the Olivet Discourse, but what they teach about the fulfillment of Revelation is misleading people. And now you’re accountable for knowing the truth for I have warned you.

        Seek truth, not to defend a belief!

      • I agree with you Deborah – These two guys teach what the churches WILL NOT and DO NOT teach! I have learned a lot from them also. Just because they may have been raised catholic or even spent time in prison doesn’t mean a thing!! In the Bible Paul killed Christians before he became a teacher of the Word. I like Jon and David C. and will continue to listen to them.

    • I think that you are all wrong and to think you are all righteous and know all things is foolish …pray for wisdom….in addition there is nothing new under the son.

      The Catholic Church has far more authority and power and things hidden than any other false church and yes I do beleive that Mary and her blood line will crush the head of the serpent….
      I do not pretend to undertand all you wrote and said about discounting their prophesies however to think your answer is the only correct one is foolish.
      Again nothing new under the sun and remember that history repeats itself and kingdoms come and go……

  2. David ,

    It is not necessary that you post this comment .(Unless you feel it would be helpful ) But just wanted to answer your questions, I do believe that David Carrico was raised Catholic . I do also know , I remember them saying Both Pounders and Carrico did some prison time.

    On their website , it does advertise a DVD about exposing the Catholic Church .

    ” DVD 20 – $15.00 – THE TRUTH ABOUT THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH – David presents the truth in love. As we near the return of Christ we are compelled to clearly and boldly point people to Jesus Christ and the Bible as the only way of salvation and spiritual truth. There are 945 million Roman Catholics in the world. We are concerned about their souls. This video presents the truth about Peter and many other Catholic beliefs. ”

    I have never listened to it, so I cannot speak to what is said on it or just how much ‘exposing ” of The Catholic church is done on the DVD.


    There is another website exposing Carrico . You ‘ll probably have to ‘glean’ from it . But sounds genuine.


    Lorie P.

  3. Hi David i have followed Pounders/Carrico for over 5 years. I take what they say with many grains of salt as I do anybody.

    I have followed your work for at least as long and at one point I made some Torah observant posts on your site and you argued against me on Feast days and Sabbath and then deleted my posts but i noticed months later you began to teach similar things. Glad you found the Father’s truth in his word.

    Before Pounders started in ministry he was a drug dealer and did do some “time” for it, which he is very vocal about.

    Carrico was at one time a recurring presenter on Art Bell’s show Coast to Coast AM… it’s vague but i think Carrico has said that he had a catholic background.

    I really do have a love for Pounders but his discernment on many things has proven to not be good or is just intentional.

    Pounders ministry NYSTV has always been a Torah Observant ministry and still is but they have begun to back peddle and move back to more traditional Christian speech, which is the doing on influence of Carrico who has all this time remained quite traditional… Romanesqe if you will.

    They speak of infiltrators in the ministry… in the Torah movement and they may well be speaking of themselves.

    This is and continues to be a red flag to me. I still listen to them as they are knowlegeable on many subjects but it’s been a sad development.

    Just another chapter in Pounders lack of discernment at least… unless it is intentional.

    Watch Pounders video on NYSTV on youtube.. “Why I left the Hebrew Roots Movement”

    • Hi Lance, thanks for sharing your insight.

      Carrico and Pounders seem like nice guys, and it’s awesome that the Father redeems us from our sinful ways! Sadly, what they teach about prophecy is misleading people.

      Yeah, Some Torah movements go too far, and they end up repelling people away from Scriptural truth.

      I show that you commented twice on my End Times Deceptions website about the ‘The Great Tribulation of Matthew 24,’ but not about the Feast Days and Sabbath. Do you recall what website you think that you commented on? I don’t delete comments, so I’m not recalling a conversation about those things.

      What in particular did you think that I was disagreeing with you about?

  4. Again this was years ago… 5, 6, 7 years ago. The details i don’t remember. What I do remember is I gave you a pro torah/law message you wrote a post in opposition and i responded again and when i checked back my two posts and yours didnt show on the page.

    But it’s not an issue.

    Some Torah groups do go to far. I just recorded a series of videos that in part deals with such groups that will start hitting my youtube channel Completed Christianity in the next week or so.

    I have studied prophecy teachers for over twenty years. I used to be convinced that Irvin Baxter had it right. But just like thinking that the Father’s Laws and Ways are no longer for us it is because people who think such things don’t know or recognize all the information.

    Today you David are my go to guy for prophecy interpretations. Thanks.

    • Lance, my perspective on observing the Feast Days and Sabbath certainly has changed over the years, away from my Christian upbringing, and then away from those who follow Jewish fables.

      That’s great that you’re making videos about Torah groups taking things too far. Please share the link when they’re published.

      I’m blessed to know that the prophecy studies on my websites are helping you. There’s so much deception in these end times, the truth is a glorious thing indeed.

      Keep learning and growing in The Way!

  5. I also meant to mention in my first post above that Pounders and Carrico are flat earthers. So to me this is another red flag on their genuineness.

    The enemy has used flat earth as a plague on the Torah/Hebrew Roots movements to discredit the ways of the Father. I suspect that this came from Jesuit SDA infiltrators that were trained in Sabbath keeping and jumped the Torah/Hebrew Roots Movement. Just my suspicion…

    Glad your not a Flat Earther

    • Yeah, it’s amazing that Pounders and Carrico are flat earthers. I agree that the flat earth theory has caused many people who teach truth, to lose credibility.

      That said, when I did my research about the verses that flat-earthers cite, it seems that the Bible is pointing to a geocentric universe, in which the globe earth is unmovable at the center of the universe, and that the sun is moving in a circuit around it. No verses say that the earth is moving, and many show that the sun is moving. I believe that the geocentric globe earth is what the Jesuits are hiding with the flat earth theory. I wrote a book about it. You can get a copy @ https://biblicalgeocentrism.com

      If you read the book, let me know what you think.

    • yes that was a flag for me too, but i think Yah uses us all in different areas, we are not all arms and legs, we need to hold up our brothers and sisters, not tear them down. no matter where they are in life, Yah loves us all, we are to pray for one another not tear and rip apart . Yah bless you in the work you do for the Kingdom Coming! Yah Reigns!

        • Jackie, exposing people’s false teachings to show people the truth of prophecy fulfillment is not ‘tearing other people down.’ We are called to expose false teachers so that the saints are ready for how the end times plays out and for Messiah’s return.
