Video description: MARANATHA Global Bible Study // The Book Of Revelation. Session 40: The Fatal Head Wound of the Beast
Joel Richardson says points to deadly head would in Revelation 13:3
Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas are basing their explanation on the false, futuristic narrative of prophecy fulfillment which was created by the Jesuits of Rome to deflect blame away from the antichrist beast Popes.
The Jesuits created the narrative of an end-times one-man antichrist and that most of Revelation would be fulfilled during a futuristic 70th week of Daniel 9. Sadly, they’ve been so effective at pushing this narrative during the last few centuries, that most saints are deceived by them.
The Protestant Reformers all 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 ‘antichrist beast’ of Revelation 13, who leads the ‘harlot’ church of Rome.
The deadly head wound took place when the last Western Roman Emperor was removed from power in 476 AD, during the fulfillment of the fourth trumpet judgments. The office ceased to exist, thus the deadly head wound. It was healed when the Popes of Rome took control of the Roman beast kingdom and took the Emperor’s title of Pontifex Maximus, the leader of church and state.
Joel Richardson points to a futuristic one-man antichrist
The antichrist is one who comes in the place of Christ, who pretends to be his representative, but deceives people. That is what the Popes do as they proclaim to lead Messiah’s church but they teach a false Gospel and that Mary is the intercessor to the Father. They now deceive 1.3 billion Catholics.
The Popes take the title of the “Vicar of Christ” which means in place of Christ, which is antichrist. The Popes have already proclaimed to be God, to be Jesus Christ in the flesh, to forgive sins and to provide salvation; which is blasphemy.
The Popes have banned and burned the Scriptures, and caused tens of millions of saints to be killed during the Dark Ages and the Inquisition.
Joel Richardson asks if Revelation 17 is from John’s perspective?
In the narrative of the five kings that have passed, he points to Egypt, Syria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece. He says that the Roman beast kingdom is the sixth king.
John is being shown how the harlot Roman Catholic Church rose to power. He is told that five forms of government of the Roman Empire have passed, one is, the Emperors. Then one exists a short time from 476-538 AD, after the empire collapsed and was divided into ten civil kingdoms. Then the eight king is the Popes of Rome who rose to power over the Roman beast kingdom, who leads the harlot church of Rome.
Joel Richardson points out that the word worship can mean to prostrate, to bow down before the antichrist.
I agree and it’s amazing to me that he and Dalton Thomas don’t see how the kings of the earth have historically bowed down before the antichrist beast Popes of Rome. Today, the leaders of countries and religious leaders travel to the Vatican and bow to his authority. Catholic priests lay prostrate before him.
Joel Richardson says that every futurist has a gap in the beasts of Daniel.
Futurists fail to understand the historical fulfillment of prophecy, so they have to insert a gap.
Daniel 2 and Daniel 7 describes four beast kingdoms of Babylon > Medo-Persia > Greece > Rome, which the last one staying in power until Messiah returns.
The Roman Empire conquered the Grecian Empire. There is a natural flow to the narrative, with no gaps.
The pagan Roman Empire existed from the first century BC until the 15th century AD, but the antichrist beast Popes took power in the sixth century and they reigned in power for 1260-years from 538-1798 AD.
Now the false prophet Jesuit Superior Generals control the Roman beast kingdom. They are using the Vatican and the antichrist beast Pope to take control of the world. So the Roman beast kingdom has never lost power.
Joel Richardson points to the lawless one in 2 Thessalonians 2.
The popes of Rome fulfill prophecy as the man of sin, the son of perdition. They proclaim to lead Messiah’s church but they cause people to break the commandments. They cause people to make and pray to graven images. They have caused Catholics to murder the saints during the Dark Ages and Inquisition.
They teach a false salvation message of works through the sacraments and that Mary is the intercessor to the Father, which has left billions of Catholics lost in their sins.
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 Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries 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.
