Joel Richardson of FAI Studios notes that pastors rarely teach Revelation 17-18.
This is true, so it’s sad that when Joel Richardson takes the time to do so and misleads people about the fulfillment.
The prophecy fulfillment explanations of Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas serve to deflect blame away from Rome, the antichrist beast pope and the false prophet Jesuit Superior General, the leaders of the harlot Roman Catholic Church which is clearly described in Revelation 17-18.
The white pope and the black pope are the two leaders (horns) of the end-times earth beast phase of the Roman beast kingdom. They pretend to be priests of Messiah (like a lamb) but they really serve Satan (the dragon) to make war with Messiah and His saints.
Joel Richardson teaches that the beast in Revelation 17 is a kingdom, but that’s not true.
Joel Richardson of FAI Studios says that Revelation 17:17-18 point to the influence and control of the harlot.
He says that she’s riding the beast, that they are one in the same.
Indeed they are, as the antichrist beast pope leads the harlot church of Rome!
Here’s a drawing that Martin Luther had made, which features the harlot sitting on a beast that has seven heads and ten horns. The harlot is wearing the mitre of her leader, the antichrist beast popes of Rome. And she’s holding the golden cup of her abominations.
She is positioned over many waters and we see the kings bowing to her, giving her their authority.
Joel Richardson of FAI Studios points out the symbiotic partnership of the beast and the harlot suddenly changes.
Indeed it does as the Jesuit priests, the so-called Society of Jesus, are really the Society of Satan; and they are being used by the Heavenly Father to bring judgment on Catholics.
The General is not a Catholic follower of Messiah, he is a servant of Satan who is using three city-state corporations (Vatican City, the City of London and Washington D.C) and many front organizations, to push the world into a Satanic One World Government.
As I noted in my Joel Richardson FAI STUDIOS Mystery Babylon the Great Video Review post, the General in Rome was used to carry out the first four bowl judgments against countries who had revered (mark on forehead, thoughts) and obeyed (mark on right hand, actions) the antichrist beast popes’ command to kill the saints.
The first four bowl judgments point to France becoming atheistic, which set up the environment of Revelation against their Catholic leaders. Then the blood of the French was shed during the French Revolution in the large cities and in the area of the rivers, where they had shed the blood of the saints. Then the blood of more Catholics was shed during the bloody Napoleonic Wars.
The General caused these events as he sought revenge against countries who had kicked his Jesuit priests out because of their subversive ways. But he’s just a pawn of the Heavenly Father who is using him to fulfill prophecy.
Joel Richardson’s futuristic narrative of prophecy fulfillment hides that most of the prophecies in Revelation have been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years. Read Revelation Timeline
Joel Richardson of FAI Studios says that Revelation 18:2-3 points to people who have come under the influence of the harlot’s false religion.
He says that she is a religious and economic entity which is wealthy and has enriched the leaders of the earth.
How does he ignore that the Roman Catholic Church is immensely wealthy and their purchases have enriched the merchants of the world?
Revelation 18 describes all of the money that the antichrist beast popes have spent on their many ornate basilicas and in carrying out their Babylonian Mystery Religion ceremonies.
You can view images of these lavish art museums, which are full of graven images that are forbidden in the second commandment, which symbolize the pagan gods of the Babylonian Mystery Religion under the veneer of the Scriptural faith; on this Wikipedia page that lists the different Catholic basilicas.
Click on the links in the second paragraph on that page to view the major basilicas of St John Lateran, St Peter’s, St Paul outside the Walls, and St Mary Major; and then on each of those pages, click on the picture on the right to see many photos of the basilica. You see the wealth that has been spent on these lavish basilicas, which rival the best art museums in the world.
Joel Richardson mocks that it represents apostate Christianity, pointing out that businessmen do business with her. He says that she’s a very real identifiable city or city-state, an identifiable geopolitical entity.
Look at how the harlot church of Rome fulfills Joel’s description:
Vatican City is a city-state corporation, which has influence with religious, business and political leaders. Many major country leaders have visited the pope at Vatican City, which is a real, identifiable city; that is called the great city in Revelation.
Many merchants have done business with her to provide the materials to build her thousands of basilicas, and to provide goods for her to carry out her sacraments with incense, oil, wine and flour.
On 12/03/16, Pope Francis met with participants of the Fortune-Time Global Forum. The Forum brings together Fortune 500 and Time 100 leaders, who were discussing technology and jobs, global health, food and water, commitment to communities, energy and the environment, and financial inclusion.
Business leaders travel to the Vatican to meet with the pope. We’ve seen Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg,
Apple CEO Tim Cook and others visit the pope. The list of companies whose leaders have made a pilgrimage to Rome reads like a Harvard Business Review index: Apple, Bank of America, BlackRock, Exxon, Facebook, Google, McKinsey and News Corp, to name only a few.
Business leaders met with Pope Francis during the 27th World Congress of UNIAPAC, which is an international organization composed of business people from around the world. Its mission is to advocate “for an economy based on the respect and dignity of the person,” while promoting the “sense of Common Good.”
Most recently the business leaders of IBM, Microsoft and other technology companies, met with the pope to discuss the role of Artificial Intelligence.
There are many more examples of of the popes meeting with business leaders in the city-state corporation of Vatican City, yet Joel Richardson mocks this explanation.
Often times when people mock something, it’s a tactic to hide the truth, as they try to emotionally get you to dismiss what they are mocking.
Joel Richardson of FAI Studios says that Revelation 18:4-5 is pointing to coming out of a literal city.
The apocalyptic vision is a historical narrative of the battle between two cities: the Satan-empowered Roman beast kingdom, that is based in Rome, which is called the great city; fighting against Messiah and His saints, who are called Holy Jerusalem.
Messiah is commanding people to come out of the manmade teachings of the harlot church of Rome, which is based in Vatican City, a literal city.
In 2 Thessalonians 2, the Apostle Paul foretold a falling away from the faith. This was fulfilled in the fourth century, when Emperor Constantine and the Roman bishops codified Romanism, the false religion of the harlot Roman Catholic Church. Read The Falling Away of 2 Thessalonians 2
Romanism teaches a false gospel of works through the sacraments and that Mary is the intercessor to the Father. Catholics need to come out of that teaching and be saved by faith in Messiah’s atoning work for our sin as our Intercessor.
Romanism teaches manmade holidays of Easter (Ishtar, the fertility goddess, thus the rabbits and eggs) and Christ-mass. Followers of Messiah need to come out of manmade concepts which are based on pagan god worship, and should be celebrating how Messiah is fulfilling His Father’s seven Holy Feast Days to redeem the set-apart saints. Read Come Out Of Babylon!
The Popes are the man of sin, who causes Catholics to break the ten commandments, and commit many sins; and the false gospel of Romanism leaves Catholics lost in their sins. Messiah commanded people to come out of her, lest they partake in her plagues, which includes the coming judgment of the papal church.
Joel Richardson mocks that it’s not telling us to leave apostate churches.
Again, his mocking is hiding an important truth!
Messiah is absolutely telling people to come out of the apostate Roman Catholic Church of the antichrist beast of Rome, as referring and obeying the pope as your leader means that you have the mark of the beast on you!
Today, 1.3 billion Catholics have the mark of the beast on them, and they need people to share the Scriptural Gospel with them so that they are saved; yet Joel Richardson mocks that Messiah is talking about coming out of the harlot church of Rome!
Joel Richardson of FAI Studios says that Revelation 18:6-7 says that she’s the primary spiritual influence which leads to the shedding of the blood of the saints.
The popes proclaim that the Roman Catholic Church is the one-true church of Messiah, which is founded on Peter the Apostle; so we see that she is a spiritual influence.
The popes proclaim to be the Vicar of Christ, the substitute Christ, His representative on earth, so we see the spiritual influence of him being the leader of the Roman Catholic Church.
And we know that the popes of Rome used Catholics to torture and kill tens of millions of Messiah’s saints during the Dark Ages and Inquisition, so we see that the harlot church of Rome has shed the blood of the saints.
Foxes Book Of Martyrs documents the killing of the saints by the Catholic priests of the Roman Catholic Church.
You can Google the phrase ‘Catholic torture devices‘ to see the many wicked instruments they used to inflict pain on Messiah’s saints and kill them.
Yet somehow, Joel Richardson just dismisses these facts!
Joel Richardson says that the harlot of Revelation 17 seems like something that we should know what it’s talking about right away; that she’s in the open but she’s secret.
That’s amazingly ironic, as the antichrist beast pope and his harlot church are hidden in plain sight.
All of the proofs that I’ve posted on this page about the pope and the Roman Catholic Church are available to everyone, including Joel Richardson, yet some have eyes to see and others are blind.
Joel Richardson of FAI Studios says that Revelation 18:8 points out that the Father is offended when people go after His children, the saints.
One of the harvests of Revelation 14 is about judgments against the Catholics in France, Spain and other countries who had the mark of the beast on them when they revered (mark on forehead, thoughts) and obeyed (mark on right hand, actions) the antichrist beast pope’s order to kill the saints. Read Revelation 14 – Mark Of The Beast
Because France, Spain and other countries revered the Pope, bowed to his authority and followed his commands to kill millions of Protestants, they had the mark of the beast on them, so the Heavenly Father poured out His wrath on them during the first four bowl judgments. Read Revelation 15 – 7 Bowls Prelude
The false, futuristic explanations of Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas serve to hide the amazing fulfillment of prophecy!
Joel Richardson of FAI Studios says that Revelation18:9 describes the kings of the earth who become rich from their relationship with her.
It’s pointing to the business leaders who the harlot Roman Catholic Church has enriched through her purchases to build her many ornate basilicas and to provide the goods to carry out her sacraments in parishes around the world; which adds up to many, many billions of dollars.
The Roman Catholic Church also pay them to build her many schools and hospitals, and to maintain them.
Joel Richardson of FAI Studios declares that Revelation 18:10-11 says that Babylon is a literal city who buys the merchandise of the kings of the earth.
Rome is a literal city from which the harlot rules, which has spent trillions of dollars to build her empire, which is spread around the world.
She is the largest holder of property in the world, as she owns all of the land of her many basilicas, parishes, hospitals and schools. Building and maintaining the operations of all of those buildings requires a lot of money, which has enriched the kings of the earth.
Joel Richardson of FAI Studios skipped over the description in Revelation18:12-13
The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odors, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
Why would Joel Richardson skip such a detailed description of the goods that the harlot has purchased?
Is it because he doesn’t understand the fulfillment? Or is it that he’s hiding that it describes the products and goods that the harlot church of Rome purchases from the kings of the earth?
When you view images of the many lavish Roman basilicas on this Wikipedia page that lists the different Catholic basilicas, you see that they’re like art museums and you see the products which are listed by John.
The basilicas feature much fine marble in the floors and walls. They are built with fine woods, brass and iron. They are decorated with silver and gold.
You see Catholic priests decked in purple and scarlet silk robes and mitres.
You see the popes tiara filled with gold, silver, precious stones and pearls.
You see the priests use cinnamon, odors and frankincense in iron censors.
You see the priests drink wine during the Eucharist ceremony.
You see the priests use oil and ointments when giving the sacraments.
And you see the fine flour and wheat in the Eucharist ceremony wafers.
You see that in Revelation 18:12-13, that Messiah is describing the goods that the harlot church of Rome purchases from the kings of the earth.
And you see that Joel is misleading people by not covering these verses.
Joel Richardson of FAI Studios says that Revelation 18:15 says that the kings of the earth will weep when she is destroyed, because she doesn’t buy their merchandise anymore.
He says that she is a geopolitical city-state and that she is a consumer of these goods.
Yet somehow he doesn’t see that the harlot church of the popes of Rome fulfills that description in exacting detail!
Joel Richardson of FAI Studios skips over Revelation 18:16
And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
Once again, Joel is hiding the clear description of the priests of Rome, as the official colors of the archbishops and cardinals robes is purple and scarlet. And the pope’s tiaras, their crowns, are made of gold and precious stones and pearls.
Joel Richardson of FAI Studios mocks that Revelation 18:23 points to the pharmaceutical industry.
for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
This declaration really irritated me as he is deceiving people about the magnitude of the harm that the kings of the earth have caused through their sorcery.
The word ‘sorceries’ is Greek word 5332 pharmakeia, which describes; medication (“pharmacy”), i.e. (by extension) magic (literally or figuratively):—sorcery, witchcraft.
The kings of the earth are people like the Rockefeller family, who took over the American Medical Association and changed the system from a healthcare system that focused on food and nutrition from plants; into a chemical-laden pharmaceutical industry which only manages people poor health conditions.
Look at the symbol is the American Medical Association and you see Satan the snake deceiving people through the sorcery of their pharmakea.
The kings of the earth control the major food companies and restaurants, through which they provide GMO food-like products, which have toxic ingredients in them.
The kings of the earth control the pharmaceutical industry which now mandates that children’s body’s be drugged though a regime of 72 shots; which has lead to an epidemic of SIDS and autism, and it damages their body so much that their health issues cause them to rely on the supposed healthcare system for life.
And now the CV VX is causing people to pass away suddenly from heart attacks and issues from blood clots which are made up of foreign substances that are included in the CV VX.
The kings of the earth sell many billions of dollars of products which cause people to have major health problems. Then they sell people many billions of dollars of pharmaceutical products to manage their health problems.
Messiah warned His saints about the evil ones carrying out this agenda, so that they would be protected against their evil ways.
Yet Joel Richardson has the audacity to mock that Revelation 18:23 is describing the end times evil agenda of the kings of the earth who are using sorcery to make war with humanity.
Once again, his mocking serves to cause people to dismiss truth, and he will be held liable for his words!
Joel Richardson of FAI Studios says that Revelation 18:24 is not pointing to Jerusalem.
I agree and I prove it out on this page: Proof That Jerusalem Is Not Babylon In Revelation
Sadly, Joel points to an Islamic harlot which deflects blame away from Rome, the great city of the antichrist beast popes and their harlot church. The false religion of Islam is a daughter of the false religion of the harlot Roman Catholic Church. Read my Joel Richardson FAI STUDIOS Mystery Babylon the Great Video Review post.
There’s really no excuse for this level of ignorance from someone who proclaims to have studied prophecy fulfillment in depth and is providing a Revelation video series.
Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas teach 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 Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas 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.
