This Revelation Timeline Decoded post features a video from Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries DTBM, called WHAT’S NEXT–AN OVERVIEW OF BIBLE PROPHECY & GOD’S PLAN TO WAIT FOR JESUS WHILE THE EARTH IS DYING
Video description: God wants us in Christ’s Church to live in hope. How do you live in hope when the Earth is dying? How do we go on when we wonder how much darker our culture can get? How do we live in hope when bad news is all we hear? BINGO. That is the purpose of Biblical Prophecy. God wants us to know what’s next. His plan. The events from today until everything is the God promised it would turn out. That is how we live in hope. We aren’t living tied to the world’s decline, rather seeing that the decline is part of the plan. The birth pains have started. They will get stronger, closer, deeper, and clearer. The essence of prophecy is HOW DOES GOD WANT US TO LIVE WHILE WE WAIT.
Indeed, the Heavenly Father and Messiah want the readers of Revelation to understand what will happen next on the fulfillment timeline. Sadly, people like Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries are teaching people the futuristic explanations, which were created by the enemy to deceive the end-times saints.
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.
Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries teaches birth pains, pointing to greater visibility, frequency, intensity and impact of events that take place in the end times.
The birth pains of Revelation 12 were experienced by the early church, which was born out of much tribulation.
The church era of Smyrna which existed from 100-312 AD, faced eight persecution periods. The last one was the most severe as Diocletian sought to wipe out Messiah’s Ekklesia of saints from 303-312 AD. This is the ten days (ten prophetic years) that Messiah foretold that the church era of Smyrna would face.
We see their blood symbolically cry out in the fifth seal, as they prayed for vengeance to be carried out against the pagan Roman Empire. Their prayers were answered during the trumpet judgments, as army after army were sent to attack the empire, leading to its fall.
Here’s a link to a REVELATION FULFILLMENT TIMELINE which shows you what has already been fulfilled, where we’re at on the timeline, and what will happen next as we await Messiah’s return.
Dr. John Barnett is not teaching you these things, either because he’s been deceived by the enemy’s false, futuristic explanations; or because he’s a wolf in the church.
Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries points to microplastics in the water and soil, glyphosate in our bodies, high temperatures, etc.
Dr. John Barnett is applying Bible prophecy to what’s taking place today, but the truth is that most of the prophecies in Revelation have been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years.
Revelation is the historical narrative of the Satan-empowered leaders of the Roman beast kingdom (the pagan Emperors > the antichrist beast Popes > the false prophet Jesuit Superior Generals) fighting against Messiah and His saints.
The pagan Emperors carried out ten persecution periods against Messiah’s Ekklesia of saints, killing millions. The antichrist beast Popes made war with the saints during the Dark Ages and Inquisition, killing tens of millions of saints.
Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries points to points to pretrub rapture, great tribulation,
The concept of a pre-trib rapture is based on a futuristic 70th week of Daniel, but that is a deception to fool the end times saints.
The 70th week of Daniel 9 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.
