This Revelation Timeline Decoded Bible page lists people who teach about prophecy fulfillment and are misleading saints with their false preterist, futurist and even historicist explanations.
It’s only been during the last few centuries that people have been actively promoting the futurist and preterist explanations of the fulfillment of Revelation. Before that, most of the saints taught the historicist narrative of prophecy fulfillment. You can read a list of historicists whose works I have studied on the About Me page.
So let’s define some terms first, so that you understand the different views:
A preterist believes that the 70th week of Daniel 9, the Olivet Discourse and most of the prophecies in Revelation were fulfilled in the first century.
A futurist believes that the 70th week of Daniel 9, the Olivet Discourse and most of the prophecies in Revelation are yet to be fulfilled in the last seven years.
A historicist believes that the 70th week of Daniel 9 and the Olivet Discourse were historically fulfilled in the first century, and that the prophecies in Revelation have been in the process of being fulfilled since it was written.
Some people mistakenly call a historicist, a preterist or a partial-preterist, but that is a misnomer as historicists don’t believe that the prophecies in Revelation were fulfilled in the first century.
Now that we have the definitions, let’s look at who developed the preterist and futurist prophecy fulfillment explanations in order to hide the historicist explanations and to deflect blame away from the popes of Rome.
The pope empowered the Jesuit General and his army to counter the Protestant Reformers, as they rightly 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 beast’ of Revelation 13, who leads the ‘harlot’ church of Rome.
Many saints and whole church bodies witnessed against the popes and their harlot church, sometimes paying for their testimony with their blood.

To counter the Reformers explanations, the General had Jesuit priests write preterist and futurist prophecy fulfillment explanation, to deflect blame away from the pope.
Jesuit Priest Francisco Ribera, a brilliant man with a doctorate in theology, wrote a 500 page commentary with an opposing view, where he manipulated prophecies in the books of Daniel and Revelation, to create an end-time 7-year tribulation with features a one-man antichrist.
Jesuit Luis De Alcazar published a book called ‘Investigation of the Hidden Sense of the Apocalypse‘ in 1614 AD, which assigns the fulfillment of the prophecies in Revelation to the first century. He devoted himself to bring into prominence the preterist method of interpretation to show the prophecies of antichrist were fulfilled before the Popes ever ruled at Rome.
Read How The Deceptions Spread
These prophecy teachers mislead people with the false futurist prophecy fulfillment explanations.
I do these type of reviews, not just to expose false teachers; but to show what they teach, which you may have also been taught, so that you can see the truth and the deception.
These reviews serve as an open rebuttal of their explanations. It’s not about me being right and them being wrong. It’s about the truth of prophecy fulfillment which reveals the glory of our beloved Messiah!
Note: If there’s a clickable link, you can read reviews about their videos.
Amir Tsarfati of Behold Israel – Amir positions himself as an Israel authority. In this video, Amir admits to being in the NY Twin Towers on 9/10/01, and he asked ‘if something is going to hit those buildings, are they going to fall to the right or to the left’ which tells us that he is an Israeli MOSSAD agent.
Dalton Thomas and Joel Richardson of FAI Studios – Dalton Thomas lives in the Golan Heights and positions himself as an Israel authority.
David Carrico and Jon Pounders –
Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries –
Jonathan Cahn – A common strategy of the enemy is to use people who seem ‘Jewish’ to teach prophecy, as Christians tend to blindly trust them. Jonathan reveres the Egyptian Kabbalah, which is problematic.

Lex Meyer of UNLEARN The Lies –
Lion of Judah Ministries –
Michael Rood –
Nathal Leal of Watchman’s Cry –
Pastor Chuck Swindoll –
Pastor David Jeremiah of Turning Point Ministries –
Dr. Stephen Pidgeon – Stephen seems incredibly intelligent, but his prophecy fulfillment explanations are off-target.
Walid Shoebat – Walid is a self-proclaimed former Muslim terrorist, though witnesses including his family testify that it’s not true. He positions himself as a Muslim authority and points to Islam as the enemy kingdom from which the supposed one-man antichrist will rise.
Wally Carlson of Revelations Of Jesus Christ –
These prophecy teachers mislead people with the false preterist prophecy fulfillment explanations.
Dr. Chuck Baldwin of Liberty Fellowship – He rightly teaches that the 70th week of Daniel 9 and the Olivet Discourse were fulfilled in the first century, and he condemns the false, futuristic explanation of Revelation. This causes people to trust him about the prophecies in Revelation, which he teaches are about the desolation of the Jewish nation in 70 AD.
These prophecy teachers give the historicist prophecy fulfillment explanations but they mislead people about some key prophecies.
The more that I’ve studied the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, the more convinced I am that it was created by the Jesuits to hijack historicist. The enemy knows that the best way to control the opposition is to lead it.
By using the SDA church to point to teach that the vial judgments haven’t been fulfilled, they deflect blame away from the Jesuit Superior General who was used to carry out the first five vial judgments against the Catholic countries of France and Spain, and against the white pope, which led to the black pope taking control of the Vatican.
By using the SDA church to point to the USA as the earth beast of Revelation 13, they deflect blame away from the Jesuit Superior General as the false prophet.
By using the SDA church to proclaim that obeying a Sunday law is the mark of the beast, they hide that it’s revering (mark on forehead, thoughts) and obeying (mark on right hand, actions) the antichrist beast pope. This will become important as they push the world into their One World Government, when you won’t be able to buy and sell if you don’t revere the pope as the leader.
