This Revelation Timeline Decoded post features a video from Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries DTBM, called GLOBAL END OF WORLD SOCIAL MEDIA–ANTICHRIST KILLS THE 2 WITNESSES & EARTH-DWELLERS WATCH & REJOICE
Video description: THE TWO WITNESSES SERVE: Revelation 11:5-6—The identity of the 2 Witnesses has been often speculated. God only tells us what they do. Moses could send plagues so do they. Elijah could withhold rain, so do they. One interesting clue is when God sent Moses & Elijah to meet with Christ on the Mount of Transfiguration as a reminder of Christ’s glory at His Second Coming.
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM says that the antichrist is the incarnation of Satan.
Revelation 11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
Satan, who rose out of the bottomless pit, out of hell, empowered the antichrist beast Popes who leads the harlot church of Rome, to execute his plan.
shall make war against them;
Mystery Babylon, the Mother of Harlots, was drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Messiah.
and shall overcome them;
By the end of the church era of Thyatira, the saints had been overcome, and the Catholic Church controlled the nations.
The saints were worn out.
“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time(1,260 years).” Daniel 7:25
And kill them;
Messiah church had been persecuted so much, and so many Bibles had been burned, that in 1514, at the ninth session of the Fifth Lateran Council, the Roman Catholic Church declared “There is an end of resistance to the Papal rule and religion: opposers there exist no more“, “The whole body of Christendom is now seen to be subjected to its Head (the Pope).
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM says that the great city of Revelation 11:8 is Jerusalem.
Revelation 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
Futurists are very literal, so he says that it’s pointing to Jerusalem since that’s where Messiah was killed.
Jerusalem was never called the great city, rather it’s pointing to Rome, which was the great city of John’s day.
The word ‘was’ can be rendered as present tense ‘is’ which changes the meaning.
The antichrist beast Popes sacrifice Messiah every time they perform their Eucharist ceremony, as they proclaim that they are crucifying Messiah again for sins.
And the antichrist beast Popes keep Messiah crucified on their wicked crucifix, which openly mocks Messiah by keeping Him on the cross.
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM points to a literal earthquake in Revelation 11:13.
Revelation 11:13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
An earthquake symbolically represents a very great commotion in the civil affairs of kingdoms and nations, in this case of the Roman Catholic Church during the Protestant Reformation.
England was the first nation to break away from the Roman Catholic Church, called Babylon the great city. In 1534, King Henry VIII separated the English Church from the Roman Catholic Church, which was 1/10th of their influence.
Millions of Catholics were saved when they heard the Gospel and they came out of the harlot church of Rome.
Read Revelation 11 – The Two Witnesses
Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries teaches a false, 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.
