Here’s a link to the previous video: Joel Richardson FAI STUDIOS Daniel 2 – History or Future?
Joel Richardson ignores the historicist interpretation.
It’s absolutely amazing to me that Joel Richardson completely ignores the historicist perspective, which has been taught by the great theologians of the 16-20th centuries!
How is that possible? Is he just ignorant of this or is he a wolf?
People like Albert Barnes, Adam Clarke, John Gill and Matthew Poole wrote whole Bible commentaries which give the historicist perspective. The Geneva Bible includes the study notes of the Protestant Reformers which give historicist explanations.
E.B. Elliott wrote Horae Apocalypticae, a 2,500 page work which buttressed by some 10,000 invaluable references to ancient and modern works.
Henry Grattan Guinness wrote the books Romanism and the Reformation, and History Unveiling Prophecy, which give the historicist explanations.
He ignores the witness of the saints who have protested against the antichrist beast Popes who reigned in power for 1260-years from 538-1798 AD.
The four beast kingdoms that are described in Daniel 2 and Daniel 7 are Babylon > Medo-Persia > Greece > Rome.
In Revelation 12-13, John picks up the narrative of the Roman beast kingdom, describing the leaders of the different phases: pagan Roman Emperors > antichrist beast Popes > false prophet Jesuit Superior Generals.
By pointing to Islam as the fourth beast kingdom, Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas are deflecting blame away from the antichrist and false prophet in Rome.
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.
