This Revelation Timeline Decoded post features a video from Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries DTBM, called WHEN GOD ZAPS THE EARTH–REVELATION REVEALS HIS POURED OUT
The video description says: Rev. 6:12-17 (NKJV) I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. 13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. 14 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. 15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16 and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”
As you can see, the word wrath and the events that are prompted by the wrath of God begin with the sixth seal, starting at verse 12. As we saw last time, the sixth seal most likely portrays the period after the mid-point of the Tribulation.
What that means is that all the awful events of the first 42 months of the Tribulation (seals one through five) are not directly prompted by God’s wrath. We will explore the implications of that next week. But, starting with the sixth seal, the wrath of God begins to be directly poured out.
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM cites Old Testament passages that proclaim the day of the Lord.
These passages point to Messiah’s first advent when He came to die for our sins, and to the judgment of the House of Judah as punishment for the leaders continuing to kill the prophets that were sent to them.
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM points to the wrath of God in Revelation 6 as yet future.
The wrath in the seal judgments is against the pagan Roman Empire as Satan used the Emperors to persecute the saints during ten persecution periods.
The seal judgments are about the decline of the Western Roman Empire from bloody civil wars (red horse), economic strife (black horse), famine, pestilence and death (pale horse.)

Dr. John Barnett of DTBM points to the wrath of God in Revelation 11:18.
The wrath in Revelation is towards the antichrist beast Pope who persecute the two witnesses. They banned and burned the Scriptures during the Dark Ages. They tortured and killed tens of millions of saint during the Dark Ages and Inquisition. The wrath is against the antichrist beast Popes and Catholics who revere (mark of forehead) and obey (mark on right hand, actions) the antichrist beast Popes.

Dr. John Barnett of DTBM points to the wrath of God in Revelation 14.
Revelation is about the harvest of the Protestant Reformation and about judgment that comes upon Catholics who revere (mark of forehead) and obey (mark on right hand, actions) the antichrist beast Popes. They did this when they obeyed the Popes in killing the saints in France and other countries.

Dr. John Barnett of DTBM points to the wrath of God in Revelation 16.
The wrath in Revelation 16 is against Catholics and the antichrist beast Popes. This came when France was given over the sore of atheism, during the bloody French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars. And when the antichrist beast Pope was removed from civil power in 1798, ending their 1260-year reign of power.
Read Revelation 15 – 7 Bowls Prelude
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM says that the John the Baptist warned of the wrath of God.
John the Baptists was referring to the coming judgment of the Jewish leaders who continued in their rebellion against the Heavenly Father, and who rejected His Son and delivered Him up to be killed.
Read The Olivet Discourse Deception
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.
