This Revelation Timeline Decoded post features a video from Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries DTBM, called DID YOU KNOW DURING THE TRIBULATION, THE ANTICHRIST CAN’T DECEIVE TRUE BELIEVERS, NOR CAN HE NOW?
The John Barnett DTBM video description says: And those lies of Satan are deceiving mankind and thus determining their eternal destiny—separated forever from God in the lake of fire with the devil and his angels. We need to spread the Truth to the perishing every chance we get! Beware of the Lie. When Christ returns there will be powerful, pervasive, and universal lies backed by the most believable signs and wonders ever witnessed on planet Earth. When Jesus came to earth, He was God in human flesh; as the Christ, He was the expression of all the promises of God. To think that the Christ in all His grace and beauty came to earth, stayed for thirty-plus years, was rejected as false and fake, and almost no one followed Him, is bad enough. But to know that Satan is going to send to earth the expression of all of mankind’s desires in the person of the Antichrist, and in a very short time almost all the earth will follow him, is absolutely heart wrenching! The winds of apostasy are blowing stronger each day. Are You anchored in the Doctrine of Christ?
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM says that the antichrist can’t deceive true believers.
Either that’s correct and John Barnett is not a true believer; or it’s false because John Barnett is deceived about the antichrist.
Who is the antichrist beast of Revelation? The word ‘anti’ means both ‘in place of’ and ‘against.’ The popes proclaim to take the place of Messiah, to be the ‘Vicar of Christ,’ the substitute Christ on earth; but they teach heretical concepts that are contrary to Messiah.
The popes teach a false Gospel of works through the sacraments which has misled billions of Catholics, leaving them lost in their sins. The popes teach that Mary was sinless, that salvation is through her, and that she is the mediator to the Father. And now the Popes say that all religions lead to the same God.
The popes have proclaimed to be God, forgive sins, and provide salvation, which is blasphemy. They have people call them Holy Father, which Messiah forbids. They’ve taken God’s titles of His Holiness, Most Blessed Father, Vicar of God, God on Earth, and the true God.
During the Dark Ages, the popes banned and burned the Scriptures. The popes caused Catholics to kill tens of millions of saints during the Dark Ages and Inquisition. The cruel torture devices that they used are the most brutal made by man.
The popes cause Catholics to make graven images. This breaks the second commandment, which they removed from their list. They have images of Mary before which many Catholics bow down and pray. Their wicked crucifix keeps Messiah on the cross, putting Him to open shame.
The popes venerate skulls and bones in cathedrals and crypts. They cause Catholics to pray to dead saints, which is forbidden.
The Pope’s Catholic Mass claims to sacrifice Messiah again to atone for their sins. This is heresy as Messiah’s one-time sacrifice paid for all of our sins. This heretical act is played out in Catholic churches around the world many times a week.
The pope’s blasphemous Eucharist ceremony symbolizes the Babylonian Mystery Religion as the priests revere the round sun-god wafer, then place it in a monstrance that has sun rays emanating from it. The wafer is placed on a Luna holder, which symbolizes the moon goddess. This mimics the sexual union of the sun god and moon goddess, which produces their incarnate christ child Tammuz. They do this under the guise of it representing Messiah’s communion.
The Pope’s have an Egyptian obelisk phallic symbol of the pagan sun god in the middle of a sun wheel in St. Peter’s Square, which designates the basilica as a temple of sun-god worship. Inside St. Peter’s Basilica is a huge sun symbol above a large ornate throne. The Popes made the Roman Pantheon, where all pagan gods are worshipped, into a Catholic church, and they place another Egyptian obelisk in front of it.
The popes have people fawn over them, kiss their hand, lay prostrate before them, revering them. The leaders of nations and religions travel to Vatican City to bow before the Pope as a world leader.
The popes made themselves rich with the collection of indulgences. They spent many billions on their many ornate basilicas instead of using the money to preach the true Gospel, provide Bibles worldwide, provide food and water to people worldwide, and end homelessness.
The popes forbid their priests to marry, which causes many to be homosexual, to rape nuns and children.
The popes cause Catholics to make vain, repetitive prayers during mass and while praying the rosary to Mary, which Messiah forbids.
The popes cause many people to reject Messiah and the pure Gospel because they think that the actions of the Roman Catholic popes and priests represent the true faith of Scripture.
The Popes deny that Messiah came in the flesh, as they teach the immaculate conception of Mary and that Mary was sinless, which means that Messiah didn’t inherit a human flesh sin nature through her.
In the name of Jesus Christ, the Popes have systematically made war with Messiah and His saints, yet somehow the antichrist is hidden in plain sight.
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM says that in Matthew 24, that Messiah says that many will come in my name.
The office of the papacy, the Popes of Rome, come in the name of Jesus Christ. They proclaim to lead His church, but they teach a false gospel of works through the sacraments and that Mary is the intercessor to the Father; which is anti-christ.
Matthew 24 is not about the end times or the antichrist. It’s about the desolation of Jerusalem, the second temple and the Jewish nation during the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70 AD, in that generation just like Messiah proclaimed!
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM points to a future time of great tribulation.
Scripture points to different times of tribulation on the Jewish nation in the first century, on the saints during the ten persecution periods by the pagan Roman Emperors, and during the 1260-year reign of power of the antichrist beast Popes from 538-1798 when they caused tens of millions of saints to be killed during the Dark Ages and the Inquisition.
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.
