This Revelation Timeline Decoded post features a video from Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries DTBM, called PEACE & SECURITY + THE FAKE JESUS = WHAT’S NEXT ON GOD’S MAP OF THE FUTURE IN REVELATION
The video description says: As we open to Revelation 6:2, I wonder if most of us remember what directly precedes the launch of the Tribulation? The way that Jesus, Paul, John & Daniel all describe the start of the Tribulation is not with disasters, wars, famines, and pestilences. The Tribulation begins, according to the Bible, with global peace, safety, and prosperity.
For decade after decade, we in Christ’s church have been well taught about the inexorable slide our world is in, heading towards the final war. Armageddon and the apocalyptic events associated with it are even part of secular media reports. We hear regularly of the dangers of nuclear war, bioterrorism, pollution, and global warming.
It seems like every day we are seeing more and more of what the Bible talks about, with our world plunging deeper into chaos, ethnic conflicts, horrific acts of terrorism and aggression, and what seems like more and more natural disasters. God’s Word warns of all these plagues, quakes, and famines. Do all those conditions mean that the Tribulation is close? The real question we need to find the answer to, from God’s Word is: Which Comes First: Global Peace or Global Holocaust?
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM says that God launches the tribulation
He’s pointing to one time of tribulation, but prophecy points to several different times of tribulation, all of which have already been fulfilled.
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM says Daniel, Paul and John point to global peace before tribulation.
He says that it may be the best time since the garden of Eden. This is all based on the false, narrative of a futuristic 70th week of Daniel 9 and a futurist 7-year tribulation period.
Daniel, Paul and John point to the rise of the popes of Rome to power after the fall of the Roman Empire, which split into ten civil kingdoms.
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM says that Superman will arrive and amaze everyone.
This is a deception, as he’s pointing to an end-times one-man antichrist, which effectively serves to deflect blame away from the real antichrist beast.
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.
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.
