This Revelation Timeline Decoded post features a video from Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries DTBM, called WHEN THE WORLD IS UNITED AGAINST ISRAEL THE ANTICHRIST IS LEADING THE GLOBAL ARMY.
Within four seconds of watching this Discover the Book Ministries video, I can tell you that his explanations are false.
Look at the board and you see his explanation of a futuristic 70th week of Daniel 9. You see it pointing to a one-man antichrist who appears in the 7-year tribulation period, and the great tribulation for 3 1/2 years.
When you understand the historical fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9, which was about Messiah’s first advent when He carried out His ministry and confirmed the covenant with His blood as the Spotless Lamb; then you know that what Dr. John Barnett is teaching is false.
When you understand the historical fulfillment of most of the prophecies in Revelation during the last 1,900 years, and 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; then you know that what Dr. John Barnett is teaching is false. Simple as that!
He says that the church is out of here at the pretribulation rapture, and that the tribulation is for the Jews, who are in Jerusalem.
That is false teaching as the will be no pretribulation rapture. Messiah will return at the end just as He proclaimed. Messiah’s Ekklesia of saints, His church, is made up of believing Jews and Gentiles.
The concept of an end-times dispensational period for the Jews is unscriptural, and based on the false concepts of a futuristic 70th week of Daniel, pretribulation rapture and a futuristic fulfillment of most of the prophecies in Revelation.
It amazes me, and saddens me, that John Barnett and Discover the Book Ministries have 280k YouTube subscribers, as that means that many people are believing his explanations. People blindly trust pastors who have gone to seminaries like Dallas Theological Seminary, but the enemy has infiltrated those places with their false futuristic explanations of prophecy fulfillment to deflect blame away from the antichrist beast Pope and the false prophet Jesuit Superior General.
I’ve posted a Revelation Timeline Decoded study series which shows you the fulfillment of most of the prophecies in Revelation during the last 1,900 years; which proves that what John Barnett and Discover the Book Ministries are teaching is wrong.
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.
