This Revelation Timeline Decoded study page will explain how the concepts of a one-man end-times Antichrist in a 7-year tribulation period became so prevalent, after 1800 years of Biblical teaching that knew nothing of the sort.
You will learn how the Jesuits of the Roman Catholic Church manipulated Bible prophecy to create an end-times Antichrist, in order to deflect blame away from them as the Antichrist system.
The Beasts of Daniel and Revelation study reveals that the Roman Catholic Church is the ‘beast of Revelation‘, the ‘Little Horn of Daniel‘, and the Pope, the ‘son of Perdition‘.
That’s not to say that there won’t be an end times False Messiah, but the truth is that Satan’s Antichrist beast has been waging war against Jesus and Christians since 538 A.D.
This Revelation Timeline Decoded Bible study guide video helps you see that the great theologians of the 16th-19th centuries taught the historicist narrative of the fulfillment of Revelation.
This video summarizes the false, futuristic deceptions from the enemy.
This video is about the detriment of seminary and Bible college when it comes to understanding the prophecies in the 70th week of Daniel 9 and Revelation.
This study will explain how the Jesuits have pushed their deceptive Antichrist concepts during the last 500 years, so that they are taught to Pastors at seminary, and then preached to their congregations.
The end times prophecy teachings by John MacArthur, Chuck Swindoll, David Jeremiah and other popular pastors, support the Jesuits Antichrist deception.
Today’s teachers point to an end times Antichrist from the European Union (which they call the restored Roman Empire), which deflects blame away from Roman Catholic Church antichrist beast system.
Today’s Pastors are teaching end times concepts that are contrary to what was taught by these esteemed Bible scholars: Albert Barnes, John Calvin, Adam Clarke, Charles Finney, John Gill, Matthew Henry, Phillip Mauro, Sir Isaac Newton, Matthew Poole, Charles H. Spurgeon, William Tyndale, John Wesley, John Wycliffe and others.
So how is it possible that the majority of today’s Pastors are teaching false doctrine about prophecy?
Have they been misled? Are they ignorant? Are they wolves in sheep’s clothing?
In order to understand the answers to these questions, we first need to see where the deception started, and then follow how it become so widely accepted.
Satan empowered the Roman Catholic Church to persecute the church of Jesus, which drove Christians and the Word of God into obscurity.
The truth about Jesus love, grace, forgiveness of all their sins, and the gift of eternal life, which had been taught by the early church, was buried under the weight of Catholic tradition, and salvation by works.
During the Dark Ages, the Roman Catholic Church persecuted those who proclaimed the truth of Jesus. They banned people from reading the Bible, which was in Latin. They burned Bibles and tortured and killed those who had them. They killed upwards of 100 million people, mostly Christians, during the Dark Ages and the Inquisition.
Then God shined the light of Jesus, by having the Bible translated into English.
With the advent of the printing press and the Word of God translated into English, the men who became the Protestant Reformers were finally able to read the Bible.
They found salvation through faith, apart from works, in the pure gospel of Jesus Christ.
And they identified the Antichrist. When they read the books of Daniel and Revelation, they identified the Roman Catholic Church as the ‘antichrist‘, the ‘whore of Babylon’, who is guilty of the blood of the saints.
Their dual message of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ apart from works, together with the message that Papal Rome is the Antichrist, changed the course of history.
When Martin Luther posted his ‘Ninety-Five Theses‘ in 1517, it was widely regarded as the initial catalyst for the Protestant Reformation.
The Protestant Reformers told people to “come out of her” (Rev. 18:4) and millions left the Roman Catholic Church and received Jesus as their Savior, which led to the formation of the Protestant churches. The Protestant Reformation led to a Great Awakening, where worldwide missions led to millions of people coming to Jesus.
Satan no doubt was livid as he watched God spread His Holy Word and the saving Gospel around the world, so the deceiver devised a new plan.
The Roman Catholic Church empowered the Jesuits to counter the Reformation.
In 1545, they started meeting at what’s called the Council of Trent. One of its main purposes was to plan a counterattack against Martin Luther and the Protestants.
To do this they empowered the Jesuits, who were a secret Catholic order founded by Ignatius Loyola. They call themselves the Society of Jesus, but you’ll soon find out that they are the Society of Satan.
Their work was to be done not only through the Inquisition and through torture, but also through theology and deception.
The Catholic Church gave the Jesuits the specific assignment of bringing Protestantism back to the “Mother Church.” Look at the state of today’s liberal Lutheran church, and you know they’ve been successful.
Central to this plan, was the need to deflect accusations that they were the Antichrist beast system.
The Jesuits are a covert military order of the Roman Catholic Church, not just priests.
They use fifth column tactics to infiltrate every institution they seek to destroy.
Instead of attacking from the outside, where everyone can see them, they covertly attack from the inside. The Jesuits infiltrate the very thing they wish to destroy. They’ve pretended to be Christians and have infiltrated Christian institutions, to implement their deceptions inside the walls of Christianity.
They countered accusations by creating the concept of an end times one man Antichrist.
The Roman Catholic Church had Jesuit Priest Francisco Ribera, a brilliant man with a doctorate in theology, write 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 antichrist.
Ribera applied all of Revelation to the end time rather than to the history of the church.
His explanation was that the prophecies apply only to a single sinister man who will arise up at the end of time; instead of a beast, which the Bibles says is a powerful kingdom (the Roman Catholic Church).
He said that the Antichrist would be an infidel from outside the church of God; instead of someone who presents himself as Christ (the Pope, who calls himself the Vicar of Christ).
He said that the Antichrist would make a 7-year peace agreement with the Jews.
The most important passage that they manipulated is the 70 Weeks of Daniel prophecy in Daniel 9:24-27.
They applied the 70th week of Daniel to an end times Antichrist, replacing the 7-year period of Jesus new covenant being offered to the house of Israel from 27-34 A.D.
These may be the four most important prophecy verses in all of the Bible, because of the end times deceptions that are based on them.

This idea, called Futurism, deferred accusations away from the Roman Catholic Church and the Papacy, so Rome quickly adopted this viewpoint as the Church’s official position on the Antichrist.
Prophecies in Daniel and Revelation tell us about the battle between Jesus and Satan throughout history, from the time they were written to Jesus second coming.
The ‘beast of Revelation‘, the ‘Little Horn of Daniel‘, the ‘son of Perdition’ and the ‘Babylonian Harlot,’ all apply to the history of the Antichrist Roman Catholic Church, who proclaims to be Christian, but has opposed true Christianity throughout their history. This is called Historicism.
Satan has used Jesuit controlled false prophets and misled Christians to promote the lie of Futurism.
Following close behind Francisco Ribera was another brilliant Jesuit scholar, Cardinal Robert Bellarmine of Rome.
Cardinal Bellarmine promoted Ribera’s concepts in his work “Polemic Lectures Concerning the Disputed points of the Christian Belief Against the Heretics of this Time“. His writings claimed that Paul, Daniel, and John had nothing whatsoever to say about the Papal power. He taught that Antichrist was a single individual who would not rule until the very end of time.
His teachings won general acceptance among Catholics.
For almost 300 years after the Council of Trent, Jesuit futurism remained largely within Catholicism.
The Futurism of Ribera never posed a positive threat to Protestants worldwide for three centuries, and was virtually confined to the Roman Church. Ribera’s manipulation of Biblical text was rejected for hundreds of years, by discerning students of the Bible, who knew better.
But the Jesuits persisted with their plan to cause the Protestants to adopt this doctrine.
The King James Bible removed the witness of the Geneva Bible scholars about Jesus fulfilling the 70th week of Daniel.
Here’s the study notes from the Geneva Bible:
Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two x weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but y not for himself: and the people of the z prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof [shall be] with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
(x) In this week of the seventy, will Christ come and preach and suffer death.
(y) He will seem to have no beauty, nor to be of any estimation; ( Isaiah 53:2 ).
(z) Meaning Titus, Vespasians son, who would come and destroy both the temple, and the people, without any hope of recovery.
Daniel 9:27 And he a shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to b cease, c and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make [it] desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
(a) By the preaching of the Gospel he affirmed his promise, first to the Jews, and after to the Gentiles.
(b) Christ accomplished this by his death and resurrection.
(c) Meaning that Jerusalem and the sanctuary would be utterly destroyed because of their rebellion against God, and their idolatry: or as some read, that the plague will be so great, that they will all be astonished at them.
The Geneva Bible clearly witnesses that Jesus fulfilled the 70th week of Daniel, and that He sent the Roman army to desolate the Jews, so it has nothing to do with an end-times antichrist. But the King James Bible did not include these study notes, so they were unavailable to future generations, which allowed the Jesuits deception to creep into the church.
In the early 1800’s their futurism concepts latched on to Protestants in the Established Church of England, and from there it spread to America.
The story of how this happened is both fascinating and tragic. Many individuals were genuine Christians but unknowingly became channels of error.
In 1812 a Roman Jesuit priest named Manuel de Lacunza published the work ‘The Coming of Messiah in Glory and Majesty‘ under the pen name of ‘Juan Josafat Ben-Ezra’, a converted Jew.
The pseudonym may be seen as a way of making the work acceptable to Christian readers and diverting attention from the station of the author, as the Inquisition clearly taught Christians that Jesuits were the enemy.
In the early 1800’s their futurism concepts latched on to Protestants in the Established Church of England, and from there it spread to America. The story of how this happened is both fascinating and tragic. Many individuals were genuine Christians but unknowingly became channels of error.
In the 19th century, Dr. Samuel Roffey Maitland advanced the Jesuit teachings.
Dr. Samuel Roffey Maitland, a lawyer and Bible scholar, became a librarian to the Archbishop of Canterbury. He found Ribera’s doctrines and began to widely publish and advocate these deceptive teachings.
In 1826 he published a book attacking the Reformation and supporting Ribera’s idea of a future one-man Antichrist. For the next ten years, in tract after tract, he continued his anti-Reformation rhetoric.
As a result of his zeal and strong attacks against the Reformation, the Protestantism of England—the very nation that produced the King James Bible in 1611—received a crushing blow.
James H. Todd published pamphlets and books supporting the Jesuit teachings.
James H. Todd, a professor of Hebrew at the University of Dublin, accepted the futuristic ideas of Maitland, publishing his own supportive pamphlets and books, which caused the deception to continue to spread.
John Henry Newman promoted the Jesuits concepts in England.
Then came John Henry Newman, a member of the Church of England and a leader of the famous Oxford Movement.
In 1850, Newman wrote his “Letter on Anglican Difficulties,” revealing that one of his goals in the Oxford movement was to absorb “the various English denominations and parties” back into the Church of Rome.
After publishing a pamphlet endorsing Todd’s futurism about a one-man Antichrist, Newman became a Roman Catholic, and later even a highly-honored cardinal.
Through the influence of Maitland, Todd, Newman, and others, a definite “Romeward movement was already arising, destined to sweep away the old Protestant landmarks, as with a flood.”
Minister Edward Irving created the concept of the ‘secret rapture‘.
As the doctrine of futurism was spreading across Europe, the much-respected Scottish Presbyterian minister Edward Irving, the acknowledged forerunner of both the Pentecostal and charismatic movements, came onto the scene. Irving pastored the large Chalcedonian Chapel in London with over 1000 members.
When Irving turned to the prophecies, he eventually accepted the one-man Antichrist ideas of Todd, Maitland, Bellarmine, and Ribera. But Irving went a step further.
Around 1830, Edward Irving began to teach the unique idea of a two-phase return of Christ, the first phase being a secret rapture prior to the rise of the Antichrist.
The concept of the pre-tribulation rapture did not exist for 1800 years, until it was introduced by a Minister who was promoting the Jesuits end-times Antichrist deception.
To read a Bible study about the rapture, click on The Pretribulation Rapture Myth
John Nelson Darby created the concept of Dispensationalism.
In the midst of this growing anti-Protestant climate in England arose John Nelson Darby – a brilliant lawyer, pastor, and theologian, who wrote more than 53 books on Bible subjects and is credited as the father of Dispensationalism.
Dispensationalism is the theory that God deals with mankind in major dispensations or periods.
John Nelson Darby, like Edward Irving, also became a strong promoter of a pre-tribulation rapture followed by a one-man Antichrist. In fact, his teaching has become a hallmark of dispensationalism.
John Nelson Darby laid much of the foundation for the present popular idea of removing Daniel’s seventieth week from its historical context in the time of Jesus Christ and applying it to a future tribulation after the rapture.
In spite of all the positives of his ministry, Darby followed Maitland, Todd, Bellarmine, and Ribera by incorporating the teachings of futurism into his theology. Thus, a link was created between John Nelson Darby—the father of dispensationalism—and the Jesuit Francisco Ribera—the father of futurism.
Darby visited America six times between 1859 and 1874, preaching in all of its major cities, during which time he planted the seeds of futurism in American soil.
The Scofield Reference Bible established the deception in America.
One of the most important figures in the spread of these false doctrines is Cyrus Ingerson Scofield, a lawyer from Kansas who was greatly influenced by the writings of Darby. In 1909, Scofield published the first edition of his famous ‘Scofield Reference Bible‘, which injected large doses of Futurism in the commentaries.
This Bible became so popular in American Protestant Bible schools that it was necessary to print literally millions of copies. This was the beginning of the end of American Protestant Christianity and a proper exegetical understanding of prophecy and the Scripture.
The Scofield Study Bible was received by Congregationalists, Baptists, and some Presbyterian denominations. Through the immensely popular Scofield Study Bible, dispensationalism became the standard for biblical interpretation among traditional Southern Baptists in the early twentieth century.
Through the Scofield Bible, Jesuit futurism spread successfully across America. The doctrine of an Antichrist still to come was becoming firmly established inside twentieth-century American Protestantism.
How Christians were duped by the Scofield Bible video:
Arno C. Gaebelein promoted Scofield’s Jesuit Futurism concepts.
He was a close assistant to Scofield on his monumental work, the ‘Scofield Reference Bible‘.
Two of his books, “Revelation, and Analysis and Exposition” and “Current Events in the Light of the Bible” explain the dispensationalist view of eschatology.
Lewis Sperry Chafer brought Scofield’s teachings to the Dallas Theological Seminary.
Lewis Sperry Chafer, an American theologian, became associated with the ministry of Scofield, who became his mentor.
When Scofield died in 1921, Chafer moved to Dallas, Texas, to pastor the First Congregational Church of Dallas, where Scofield had ministered.
Then in 1924 Chafer and his friend William Henry Griffith Thomas realized their vision of a simple, Bible‐teaching theological seminary, when they founded Dallas Theological Seminary (originally Evangelical Theological College).
DTS is known as a center of modern Dispensational teaching due to Dr. Chafer’s development of a Scofield-based systematic theology which approaches the Bible with a “premillennial, dispensational interpretation of the Scriptures.”
His eight-volume work describing this approach to theology, “Systematic Theology“, was first published in 1948 and is still a required textbook for some courses at DTS.
Chafer’s theology has been the subject of much study and debate in and out of the theological community since his death, especially on the two larger topics of dispensationalism and Christian Zionism, specifically that the Jews are a people called unto God with a separate historical purpose and plan from Christians.
Dallas Theological Seminary is the key place where the Jesuit concepts were taught to thousands of Pastors, including today’s top TV and radio personalities.
DTS graduates have taken positions at other seminaries, Bible schools, denominations and churches, so that the infection of the Jesuits end time concepts have been spread throughout the church.
As of Fall 2011, DTS has nearly 14,000 alumni serving in various ministerial capacities in 97 countries worldwide, and they’ve been trained according to the Jesuits end times Antichrist deceptions.
Are you seeing how the yeast of the Jesuits futurism deception has spread throughout the church?
Notice how the following Dallas Theological Seminary alumni are promoting the Jesuit Futurism deception.
John F. Walvoord promoted futurism through his publications and books.
John F. Walvoord received a Th.B., Th.M., and Th.D. from Dallas Theological Seminary, and then became the president .
After the death of Dr. Lewis Sperry Chafer, Dr. Walvoord became President of Dallas Theological Seminary and built it into a formidable graduate school of theology.
He was the editor of Bibliotheca Sacra, America’s oldest theological quarterly, was recognized as one of the leading evangelical theologians in America and an authority on systematic theology and eschatology.
He authored numerous books on theology and biblical prophecy, including “Daniel: The Key to Prophetic Revelation“, “The Rapture Question“, and “The Nations, Israel and the Church in Prophecy.”
John F. Walvoord teaches prophecy concepts that support the Jesuits end-time Antichrist deception.
Charles Caldwell Ryrie promoted futurism in his Ryrie Study Bible.
Charles Caldwell Ryrie served as professor of systematic theology and dean of doctoral studies at Dallas Theological Seminary
He is the editor of The Ryrie Study Bible by Moody Publishers, which contains more than 10,000 of Dr. Ryrie’s explanatory notes. Over 2 million of these Bibles have been sold, each one teaching the Jesuits end times deceptions.
Hal Lindsey brought the Jesuit deception to the mainstream.
He graduated from Dallas with a Master of Theology, majoring in the New Testament and early Greek literature
In the 1970s, Pastor Hal Lindsey, released his blockbuster book “The Late Great Planet Earth“. His 177-page, easy-to-read volume brought Futurism to the masses of American Christianity, and beyond. Over 30 million copies have been sold and it’s available in over 30 languages.
Hal also embraced Dallas Theological Seminary founder Lewis Sperry Chafer’s theory that the Jews are a people called unto God with a separate historical purpose and plan from Christians.
Several of Lindsey’s books predicted the timing of the rapture, only to have the date come and go. Hal has been proven to be a False Prophet. His new program, ‘The Hal Lindsey Report‘, continues to teach the Jesuits end times concepts, and is carried on the Angel One and DayStar networks.
Chuck Swindoll and Insight For Living.
Chuck attended Dallas Theological Seminary, where he graduated magna cum laude.
In July 1994, Swindoll became the president of the Dallas Theological Seminary and now serves as its chancellor. His Insight For Living radio program is broadcast on more than 2,000 stations around the world in 15 languages. His series on Daniel and Revelation teaches the concepts of the Jesuits end times deceptions.
David Jeremiah and Turning Point Broadcast Ministries.
David Jeremiah received a Master’s degree from Dallas Theological Seminary.
He succeeded Tim LaHaye as Shadow Mountain’s senior pastor in 1981. His Turning Point Ministries program is broadcast via radio stations and the Internet. His “What In the World is Going On?” prophecy series was recently broadcast to millions of people.
His wrote the prophecy books “The Coming Economic Armageddon: What Bible Prophecy Warns About the New Global Economy“, “What In the World is Going On?: 10 Prophetic Clues You Cannot Afford to Ignore“.
David Jeremiah teaches prophecy concepts that support the Jesuits end-time Antichrist deception.
J. Vernon McGee and Thru the Bible Radio Network program.
J. Vernon McGee has Master of Theology (Th.M.) and Doctor of Theology degrees from Dallas Theological Seminary.
J. Vernon McGee taught prophecy concepts that support the Jesuits end-time Antichrist deception.
Ron Rhodes and Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries
Ron Rhode holds ThM and ThD degrees from Dallas Theological Seminary, and teaches there and at several other seminaries.
He is president of ‘Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries‘, which is heard regularly on nationwide radio.
Here’s a quote for his website, “We believe that the translation of the church will be followed by the fulfillment of Israel’s seventieth week (Dan. 9:27; Rev. 6:1–19:21) during which the church, the body of Christ, will be in heaven. The whole period of Israel’s seventieth week will be a time of judgment on the whole earth, at the end of which the times of the Gentiles will be brought to a close. The latter half of this period will be the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jer. 30:7), which our Lord called the great tribulation (Matt. 24:15–21). ”
The fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel already occurred when Jesus offered a New Covenant to the house of Israel and the House of Judah. Ron Rhodes teaches prophecy concepts that support the Jesuits end-time Antichrist deception.
The Pre-Trib Study Group from Dr. Tim LaHaye and Dr. Thomas Ice
Dr. Ice has a B.A. from Howard Payne University, a Th.M. from Dallas Theological Seminary, a Ph.D. from Tyndale Theological Seminary
In 1991 Dr. Tim LaHaye became concerned about a perceived swaying from the pretribulational doctrine. The Pre-trib Study Group gathers teachers together who promote the deceptions of the Jesuits.
Dr. Ice and Tim LaHaye teach prophecy concepts that support the Jesuits end-time Antichrist deception.
Talbot School of Theology teaches the Jesuits Antichrist deceptions.
The seminary’s first dean was Charles L. Feinberg, who earned his Th.M. and Th.D. from Dallas Theological Seminary. He was also on the faculty at DTS. Talbut officially holds to the teaching of premillennial dispensationalism, and requires its faculty members to be in accord with this theological and cultural.
By teaching these concepts, the Talbut School of Theology is promoting the Jesuits end-time Antichrist deception and misleading future pastors.
John MacArthur and Grace To You Ministries, Master’s College and Grace Theological Seminary.
John got his theology Masters at Talbot School of Theology.
John’s ‘Master’s Seminary‘ and ‘Grace Theological Seminary‘ both teach a Dispensational premillennial position in eschatology.
Their website says, “We teach the personal, bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ before the seven-year tribulation.”
The foundation for the concept of the 7 year tribulation and pre-tribulation rapture are based on the covenant in Daniel 9:26 being from the Antichrist. Our 70th Week Of Daniel Deception study proves that the covenant is from Jesus Christ, which invalidates the claim that it applies to an end times Antichrist, therefore it also invalidates that there is a 7-year tribulation period.
John MacArthur teaches prophecy concepts that support the Jesuits end-time Antichrist deception.
By teaching these concepts, the ‘Master’s Seminary‘ and ‘Grace Theological Seminary‘ are promoting the Jesuits end-time Antichrist deception and misleading future pastors.
Here’s other popular pastors who promote the Jesuits end time Antichrist deception.
Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel teaches the Jesuits Antichrist deceptions.
Chuck authored books like “The Rapture“, which teach prophecy concepts that support the Jesuits end-time Antichrist deception.
Chuck prophesied that because the state of Israel was created in 1948, the generation (40 years) that followed would be the last. Of course 1988 came and went, and here we are, so that prophecy was false.
And these concepts are taught in Calvary Chapel churches worldwide and they are taught at the Calvary Chapel Bible College, which misleads future pastors..
Jack Van Impe teaches the Jesuits Antichrist deceptions.
Jack believes the Bible states that the world political leader will “come in peaceably” and create a seven-year peace deal involving Israel.
The premise for the seven-year peace has been invalidated in our 70 Weeks of Daniel study.
Jack Van Impe teaches prophecy concepts that support the Jesuits end-time Antichrist deception.
John Hagee teaches the Jesuits Antichrist deceptions.
John Hagee promotes all of Jesuits deceptions of the end times, and also Lewis Sperry Chafer’s Christian Zionists views about Jews.
Our Jews Who Are Not Really Jews study proves that 97% of people who call themselves Jews are NOT the descendents of Abraham, and have no right to the land of Israel or the promises of God.
John Hagee teaches prophecy concepts that support the Jesuits end-time Antichrist deception.
TBN teaches the Jesuits Antichrist deceptions.
The Trinity Broadcasting Network is now the world’s largest Christian television network. They feature people like Hal Lindsey, Pastor John Hagee, who promote the Jesuit End times Antichrist concepts.
Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins brought the Jesuit deceptions to the masses.
In the 1990s, Tim Lahaye and Jerry Jenkins took the Jesuit Futurism concepts, and applied them in the enormously successful Christian fiction series of books and movies.
The authors of Left Behind and the leaders of these television ministries may be genuine Christians who are doing their best to influence people for God’s Kingdom. Yet, in the full light of Scripture, they are teaching the doctrines of Satan.
Left Behind teaches much of the same Jesuit futurism of Francisco Ribera, hiding the real truth about the Antichrist.
Through Left Behind, the floodgates of futurism have been opened, unleashing a massive tidal wave of false prophecy, that has swept over America.
Tyndale House Publishing promotes writers who teach the Jesuits deception.
Kenneth N. Taylor, a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary, created of the The Living Bible and is the founder of Tyndale House.
Its most successful publication in recent years has been the Left Behind series of novels by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, which is one of the best-selling book series in history with more than 60 million copies in print.
Kenneth N. Taylor and Tyndale House Publishing promote authors who teach prophecy concepts that support the Jesuits end-time Antichrist deception.
Another Jesuit deception is preterism, which assigns the fulfillment of Revelation to the first century.
Jesuit Luis De Alcazar published a book called ‘Investigation of the Hidden Sense of the Apocalypse‘ in 1614, 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, and therefore could not apply to the Papacy.
Le Roy Edwin Froom explains: Applying the New Jerusalem to the Catholic Church, Alcazar contended that the Apocalypse describes the twofold war of the church in the early centuries—one with the Jewish synagogue, and the other with paganism—resulting in victory over both adversaries. Revelation 1 to 11 he applied to the rejection of the Jews and the desolation of Jerusalem by the Romans. Revelation 12 to 19 Alcazar allotted to the overthrow of Roman paganism and the conversion of the empire to the church, the judgment of the great Harlot being effected by the downfall of pagan idolatry; Revelation 20 he applied to the final persecution by Antichrist, and the day of judgment; and chapters 21 and 22, referring to the New Jerusalem, he made descriptive of the glorious and endless triumphant state of the Roman church.
Just like futurism/dispensationalism, preterism serves to deflect blame away from the Popes, as the Protestant Reformers rightly 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.
So are these Pastors misled? Are they ignorant? Are they wolves in sheep’s clothing?
The studies on this website prove that the majority of today’s pastors are teaching end time prophecy concepts that are false, which makes them False Prophets.
The concept of Futurism was created to counter the Protestant Reformation and to deflect blame away from the Antichrist Roman Catholic Church.
The majority of today’s pastors are teaching the Jesuit’s prophecy concepts, which continues to deflect blame away from the Antichrist beast of the Roman Catholic Church.
They may be sincere Christians, but they are teaching the doctrine of the Antichrist, and they will be held accountable to the Lord!
Most of them have been deceived at seminaries and Bible schools, where the Jesuits infiltrated the ranks to deceive them. Others are wolves in sheep’s clothing, who have sold out to the riches of Rome.
If you have influence with a pastor who is teaching these concepts, strongly encourage them to read the 70 Weeks Of Daniel Covenant Deception study and this page, so that they can see the truth.
There are definite strongholds in Pastors lives that aren’t allowing them to see the truth, so they desperately need your prayers.
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12
Joseph Tanner said, “It is a matter for deep regret that those who hold and advocate the Futurist system at the present day, Protestants as they are for the most part, are thus really playing into the hands of Rome, and helping to screen the Papacy from detection as the Antichrist.
It has been well said that ‘Futurism tends to obliterate the brand put by the Holy Spirit upon Popery.’ More especially is this to be deplored at a time when the Papal Antichrist seems to be making an expiring effort to regain his former hold on men’s minds.”
My friend, Satan and his disciples have been very effective in undermining Christianity.
As a result, Christians are deceived and unprepared, because they think that God will rapture them out before the 7-year tribulation.
So they aren’t putting on the full armor of God to face times of great tribulation.
They aren’t preparing to have an escape plan, to have food and water, so that they can protect their family and minister to others.
They will be panic stricken when it doesn’t happen and their hearts will fail them; instead of being full of faith and helping desperate people find hope in Jesus.
They aren’t prepared to proclaim the name of Jesus when they may be forced to decide between worshiping the False Messiah(Satan) or death.
Read the The Beasts of Daniel and Revelation study to see how the Bible clearly describes the Roman Catholic Church as the the ‘beast of Revelation‘, the ‘Little Horn of Daniel‘, and the Pope, the ‘son of Perdition‘ and the “Babylonian Harlot‘.
One of the premises of the Jesuits deception is that there would be a peace agreement with Israel by the Antichrist, which meant that they had to take control of the land to create an end time Israel.
Our Jews Who Are Not Really Jews study reveals that 97% of people who call themselves Jews are not the descendents of Abraham, so the regathering in Israel is a fraud.
Many pastors point to the reestablishment of the nation Israel as a sure sign, but it is only the ploy of the Antichrist Jesuits. To learn more, click on Regathering Of The Jews Deception

Quotes about the creation of the Jesuit prophecy deceptions:
Catholic writer, G.S. Hitchcock, confirmed the origin of these anti-Protestant counter-theories, “The Futurist School, founded by the Jesuit Ribera in 1591, looks for Antichrist, Babylon, and a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem, at the end of the Christian Dispensation. The Praeterist School, founded by the Jesuit Alcasar in 1614, explains Revelation by the Fall of Jerusalem or by the fall of Pagan Rome in 410 A.D.” (G. S.

Dean Henry Alford, in the “Prolegomena” to his Greek Testament, declares: “The founder of this system [Futurist] in modern times…appears to have been the Jesuit Ribera, about A.D. 1580.” “The Praeterist view found no favour, and was hardly so much as thought of , in the times of primitive Christianity. … The View is said to have been first promulgated in anything like completeness by the Jesuit Alcasar … in 1614.” (Henry Alford, The New Testament for English Readers, vol. 2, part 2, p. 351 pp. 348, 349)
Rev. Joseph Tanner, “Accordingly, towards the close of the century of the Reformation, two of her [Rome’s] most learned doctors set themselves to the task, each endeavoring by different means to accomplish the same end, namely, that of diverting men’s minds from perceiving the fulfillment of the prophecies of the Antichrist in the Papal system. The Jesuit Alcasar 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, and therefore could not apply to the Papacy. On the other hand the Jesuit Ribera tried to set aside the application of the prophecies to Papal Power by bringing out the Futurist system, which asserts that these prophecies refer properly not to the career of the Papacy, but to that of some future supernatural individual, who is yet to appear, and to continue in power for three and a half years.” (Rev. Joseph Tanner, Daniel and Revelation, 16-17; as quoted by Froom, Vol. 2, 487)
George Eldon Ladd (1911–1982), a Baptist minister, New Testament scholar and Professor of New Testament exegesis and theology at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. “In 1590, Ribera published a commentary on the Revelation as a counter-interpretation to the prevailing view among Protestants which identified the Papacy with the Antichrist. Ribera applied all of Revelation but the earliest chapters to the end time rather than to the history of the Church. Antichrist would be a single evil person who would be received by the Jews and would rebuild Jerusalem.” (George Eldon Ladd, The Blessed Hope: A Biblical Study of the Second Advent and the Rapture (Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans Publishing Company, 1956) 37-38)
H. Grattan Guinness (1835-1910), “Through the Jesuits Ribera and Bellarmine, Rome put forth her futurist interpretation of prophecy. Ribera was a Jesuit priest of Salamanca. In 1585, he published a commentary on the Apocalypse, denying the application of the prophecies concerning antichrist to the existing Church of Rome.” (H. Grattan Guinness, Romanism and the Reformation From the Standpoint of Prophecy, p. 268 (1887))
M.L. Moser, Jr. (Baptist minister), “The futuristic School, founded by the Jesuit Ribera in 1591, looks for Antichrist, Babylon, and a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem, at the end of the Christian Dispensation. The Praeterist School, founded by the Jesuit Alcazar in 1614, explains the Revelation by the fall of Jerusalem, or the fall of pagan Rome in 410 AD..” (M.L. Moser, Jr., An Apologetic of Premillenialism, p.27 (Quoting G.S. Hitchcock, a Roman Catholic Author))
Thomas Brightman, “Indeed Francis of Ribera the Jesuit, thrust his whole prophecy almost into these straits, wisely indeed to save his Pope’s head, but as touching the truth, exceedingly perversely.” (Thomas Brightman, (Puritan scholar), A Revelation of the Apocalypse, chap. 1, p8.)
Farrar, Frederic, (Anglican), ‘It has been usual to say that the Spanish Jesuit Alcasar, in his Vestigatio arcani sensus in Apocalpysi (1614), was the founder of the Præterist School’, (Farrar, Frederic, ‘The Early Days of Christianity’, volume 2 (1882))
