This Revelation Timeline Decoded post reviews a video by Joel Richardson of FAI STUDIOS, called ‘Will Jesus Beat up His Bride Before the Wedding?’
Video description: MARANATHA Global Bible Study // The Rapture and the Endurance of the Saints. Episode 12: Will Jesus Beat up His Bride Before the Wedding?
Before I begin my review of Joel Richardson’s explanations, let me declare that I do these type of reviews, not just to expose false teachers; but to show what they teach, which you may have also been taught, so that you can see the truth and the deception.
These reviews serve as an open rebuttal of their explanations. It’s not about me, it’s about the truth of prophecy fulfillment which reveals the glory of our beloved Messiah!
This explanation from Joel Richardson of FAI Studios is based on false premises.
Joel’s argument against the pretribulation rapture is based on the false concepts of a futuristic 70th week of Daniel 9 and that most of the prophecies in Revelation are fulfilled during the last few years.
Any teacher who is basing their explanation of Revelation on the concept of a future 70th week of Daniel 9, the 7-year tribulation period, is misleading you. The false concept of a 7-year tribulation period is based on the 70-weeks of Daniel 9 prophecy. The prophecy foretold when Messiah would appear to carry out His ministry, and when (in the middle of the 70th week) He would confirm the (everlasting) covenant (that was mentioned in Daniel 9:4) with His blood as the Passover Lamb, to atone for our sins. It’s not about the end times or the antichrist. Read The 70th Week Of Daniel 9 Decoded
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.

Joel Richardson of FAI Studios cited Matthew 24:9.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
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 and for persecuting His disciples. It has nothing to do with the antichrist or the end times.

Joel Richardson of FAI Studios pointed to Revelation 12:11.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Revelation 12 is about the martyrs of the pagan Roman Emperors who tortured and killed many saints during ten persecution periods from Nero to 312 AD when Constantine stopped them.
The blood of the saints is seen crying out for vengeance against the Roman Empire is seen in the fifth seal, which came during the trumpet judgment as barbarian armies were sent to attack the Roman Empire leading to its fall.
But the false futuristic prophecy fulfillment of Joel Richardson and Dalton Thomas serve to deflect blame away from the Roman beast kingdom.

Joel Richardson of FAI Studios cites Revelation 17:6 applies it to the future.
And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
The harlot of Revelation 17 is the Roman Catholic Church of the antichrist beast popes, who tortured and killed tens of millions of Messiah’s saints during the Dark Ages and Inquisitions.
Google the phrase “Catholic torture devices“ and you see images of the wicked instruments that they created. Yet Joel says nothing about this!
Read Revelation 17 – Mystery Babylon
Joel Richardson of FAI Studios says there are more martyrs today than in any time in human history.
This is a hyperbolic statement.
How does Joel give a rebuttal to those who say that Messiah will not beat up His bride, without mentioning the tens of millions of saints were tortured and killed by the Roman Emperors and Popes?
This is a form of deception as he’s not giving the whole story. He is effectively hiding the historicist narrative of prophecy fulfillment, which the saints have proclaimed.
Read Historical Witnesses Against Antichrist
I pray that this posts helps wake you up, so that you can see how the enemy has deceived the end-times saints, for Messiah’s return draw nigh and you don’t want to be caught off-guard like the foolish virgins who don’t have the oil of Scriptural truth to light their way.
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 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.

It’s disheartening when these references to martyrs in Revelation are applied to a future great tribulation period. I see it as throwing dust over their memory, and putting so much focus on the current generation of saints while missing all those that ran the race without fainting before us. Some futurists do acknowledge these martyrs of both Rome Pagan and Papal, but it’s a shame that they can’t see our own Saviour acknowledged them as well. Thank you for continuing to do these responses to Futuristic and Preterist prophecy teachers. I pray you continue to make an impact, brother, and bring glory to the Most High!
Thank you for your comment Matthew. I agree futurism doesn’t honor those who have gone before us who have died for their faith as the prophecies in Revelation were being fulfilled. They are a great witness for us as we face tribulation. Keep pressing on for the glory of our King!
