Joel Richardson says that the center of prophecy fulfillment is Jerusalem and Israel.
First, let me declare that Joel is correct, Revelation is about Jerusalem and Israel, but his application is wrong. True Israel, those who are called Holy Jerusalem in Revelation, is made up of people (both Jews and gentiles) who have a covenant relationship with the Father through the Son. Read Messiah’s Kingdom
It is not unbelieving Jews in the Middle East who revere the Satanic Babylonian Talmud and Egyptian Kabbalah which blasphemes Messiah, His mother and His saints.
Secondly, most of the Jews in Israel are Jews by religion not blood. They are Khazar Jews who came from Russia and Poland, and ultimately from the land of Khazaria. All of the Israeli Prime Ministers came from Russia and Poland, and they all changed their last names to sound more Jewish. Read Revelation 16 – 6th Bowl Judgment
These are the people who Messiah foretold in Revelation 3:9 are “of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie.”
Joel Richardson points to political error of leaving Afghanistan and billions of dollars of weapons.
That seems like a good observation from a worldly viewpoint, but the truth is that the General in Rome controls the USA and almost every country in the world. They caused Biden, a good Catholic puppet, to pull out of Afghanistan and leave billions of dollars of weapons so that the controlled Taliban can have power in the area.
Joel Richardson points to end-times fulfillment of the Olivet Discourse, Matthew 24. sermon of the end times.
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. 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.
Joel Richardson says that the prophetic spirit of antichrist is Islam.
First of all, that’s a false narrative, as it points to a one-man antichrist in the end times. But 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.

Secondly, Islam is a daughter false religion of the harlot Roman Catholic Church, as the Roman bishops helped write the Qur’an and prop up Mohammed as the prophet in order to use Muslims as their proxy army to conquer territory, kill Christians and Jews. And it serves to deceive billions of Muslims with a false religion, which is what the antichrist does.
The futurist explanation of Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas are misleading many people.
By proclaiming the futuristic fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9, Messiah’s Olivet Discourse and most of Messiah’s apocalyptic vision in Revelation during last 1,900 years, they are hiding important proofs of Messiah’s deity.
I pray that Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas find the truth about prophecy fulfillment, for they are declaring things which they will regret when they stand before Messiah.
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.
