This Revelation Timeline Decoded post features a video from Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries DTBM, called #39 THE SIMPLE WORDS–THAT CAN UNLOCK THE BOOK OF REVELATION FOR YOU
Video description: This is the series called “Straight From the Bible” and is a collection of some of John’s all-time most favorite Q&A sessions. All of these videos are short and to the point. We hope they will strengthen, encourage, and help many who are seeking to know the Lord or know Him better!
Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries says that the events of Revelation are presented like one long chronological event.
But then he teaches that most of the prophecies in Revelation are fulfilled during the last 7 or 3 1/2 years.
Messiah told us in the first three verses of Revelation that the things which he described ‘must shortly come to pass’ and that ‘the time is at hand.’ And the first seal was fulfilled shortly after John wrote down the vision.
Most of the prophecies in Revelation have already been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years, as the Satan-empowered leaders of the Roman beast kingdom have fought against Messiah and His saints. The pagan Roman Emperors tried to wipe out the early church, killing millions.
The Roman Popes banned and burned the Scriptures and caused tens of millions of saints to be killed during the Dark Ages and the Inquisition. These are the things that Messiah is pointing to in His apocalyptic vision. Read Revelation Timeline
Revelation has four chronological layers, all which give a narrative that spans from the first century until Messiah returns. When you overlap the layers on a timeline you see the whole story. Read Revelation Is A Layered War Manual
Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries teaches a futuristic fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9, the Olivet Discourse and the prophecies in Revelation.
The 70th week of Daniel 9 is about Messiah’s ministry and His blood sacrifice as the Spotless Lamb to atone for our sins. It has nothing to do with the antichrist or the end times.
The Olivet Discourse foretold the events that would lead to the desolation of Jerusalem, the second temple and the Jewish nation; as punishment for the Jewish leaders continuing in rebellion against the Heavenly Father and for delivering His Son up to be killed. It has nothing to do with the antichrist or the end times.
Most of the prophecies in Revelation have been fulfilled in exacting detail during the last 1,900 years. It describes the historical narrative of the Satan-empowered leaders of the Roman beast kingdom (pagan Emperors > antichrist beast Popes > false prophet Jesuit Superior Generals) fighting against Messiah and His saints.
The explanations of Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries serve to deflect blame away from the enemy in Rome, and to mislead the end-times saints so that they’re not prepared for how the end-times will play out, and don’t know the context of Messiah’s return.
