This Revelation Timeline Decoded post features a video from Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries DTBM, called WHO IS HE? THE DETAILS GOD GIVES OF THE CAREER OF THE ANTICHRIST IN REVELATION 11 ARE CHILLING.
Video description: THE CAREER OF ANTICHRIST: Revelation 11:2—The career of the Antichrist is here stated to be 42 months or the last 3 ½ years of the 7-year Tribulation. This is the period when God protects the Jews in the wilderness as Revelation 12:6, 14 describes. The coming world leader, commonly known as the Antichrist, has thirty-three titles in the Old Testament and thirteen in the New Testament. One of these titles, “the prince who is to come,” is from Daniel 9:26-27 where it was prophesied that the people of this “prince” would destroy the city and the sanctuary. This reference to the Romans in Daniel 9:26 is one of several reasons why many Bible scholars see the future “prince who is to come” as a from the area of the Roman Empire, which is now more than 50% Islamic.
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM says that Revelation 11:2 is point to an end-times rebuilt Jewish temple.

Matthew 24 is about the second temple which Messiah proclaimed would be destroyed. This happened in 70 AD when the Roman army desolated it, so it has nothing to do with a future Jewish temple. Read The Olivet Discourse Deception
The temple in 2 Thessalonians 2 is not physical but it’s made up of Messiah’s saints. The son of perdition Popes proclaim to lead Messiah’s church, thus they sit in the temple. They have proclaimed to be God and to forgive sins, which is blasphemy. They teach a false Gospel of works through the sacraments and that Mary is the intercessor to the Father, which is anti-Christ. Read The Son Of Perdition Of 2 Thessalonians 2
The temple of Daniel 9 is the second temple which was rebuilt by the Jews when they were released from captivity in Babylon. Daniel 9:26 says that due to the abominations of the Jews, the temple and city would be destroyed. This took place in 70 AD during the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70 AD, so it’s not about a future Jewish temple. Read The 70th Week Of Daniel 9 Decoded
The temple in Revelation 11 is not a physical temple, but it is the Ekklesia of Messiah, His church. Catholic monk Martin Luther fulfilled this prophecy when he compared what Popes of the Roman Catholic Church teach against the rule of Scripture. He found out that the papal church is an apostate church, the harlot of Revelation 17, and that it’s not part of the true temple, but is delegated to the outer court of the gentiles.

How in the world does Dr. John Barnett not understand these things?
Dr. John Barnett of DTBM points to that taking place in a future seven-year tribulation
The concept of a 7-year tribulation 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 prince to come in Daniel 9:26-27 is the antichrist.
That is wrong, as Daniel tells us who the prince is in Daniel 9:25, Messiah. The highlight of the prophecy is that Messiah the Prince would come in the 70th week to carry out His ministry and confirm the covenant with His blood to atone for our sins. Read The Covenant of Daniel 9:27
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.
