This Revelation Timeline Decoded post features a video from Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries DTBM, called THE TWO WITNESSES ARE GOD’S TOOLS FOR THE COMING JEWISH REVIVAL IN REVELATION 11
VIDEO DESCRIPTION: THE 2 WITNESSES ARRIVE: Revelation 11:3—Again God introduces us to His team members, this time the 2 Witnesses who especially are testifying to Israel their need of the Messiah. They serve 42 months or 1,260 days which is 3 ½ years until the Antichrist slays them.
THE MESSIANIC JEWISH REVIVAL: Revelation 11:4—John draws from Zech. 3-4’s two olive trees and lampstands that sparked a revival in the OT time and again here in the Tribulation—among God’s chosen people of promise.
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.
THE WORST HUMAN TO EVER LIVE: Revelation 11:7—Antichrist is the incarnation of Satan who is described 36x in Revelation. In Revelation 11 he is the Beast that ascending from the bottomless pit. In Revelation 13 he is called the Antichrist.
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM says that the two witnesses testify to Israel until the antichrist slays them.
This narrative is based on the concept of a pretribulation rapture before the supposed futuristic 70th week of Daniel, the seven years during which God will deal with the Jews.
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.
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM says that the two witnesses cause revival among God’s chosen people of promise.
This is true, but it’s not with the Jews in Zionist Israel. The two witnesses were as good as dead in May 1514, as the antichrist beast Popes had been so effective at banning and burning the Scriptures, and killing the saints.
In fulfilling Revelation 11:1-2, Martin Luther was given the Scriptures and told to measure what the Popes teach against the rule of Scripture. He found that the papal church is an apostate church, the harlot of Revelation 17, and that they are not part of the true church, the temple of God.
Then when Martin Luther posted his 95 Thesis, he sparked the Protestant Reformation which brought the saints back to life and sparked a revival that continued for hundreds of years.
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM says that God never tells us who they are, just what they do.
That’s not true, as Messiah proclaimed that the Scriptures testify (witness) about me and that His saints are His witnesses.
In Revelation 1, Messiah declares that the seven church eras are seven lampstands, so when we read that two lampstands testify against the antichrist beast Popes, we can see that Messiah is pointing to the two church eras of Thyatira and Sardis who witnesses against the antichrist beast Pope during their 1260-year reign of power from 538-1798 AD.
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM says that the antichrist is the world human to ever live.
The antichrist beast Popes have deceived billions of Catholics with a false gospel. They have caused tens of millions of saints to be killed. They now proclaim that all religions lead to the same God. So indeed, they are the world humans to ever live.
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.
