The Lion of Judah YouTube channel has 2.59 million subscribers, which means that a lot of people are being misled by their false, futuristic explanations about the fulfillment of Revelation and the antichrist.
Lion of Judah says that everything is ready for the antichrist to be revealed.
The concept of an end-times, one-man antichrist is a deception, as 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 ‘beast’ of Revelation 13, who leads the ‘harlot’ church of Rome.
Lion of Judah says that the holy spirit is the restrainer of 2 Thessalonians 2:
The restrainer that the Apostle Paul is describing is the Roman Emperor. If it was the Holy Spirit, Paul would have just said that. But he couldn’t claim that the Emperor would be removed from power, as that would have invited more persecution.
The last Western Roman Emperor was removed from power in 476 AD during the fourth trumpet judgment. Shortly afterward, in 538 AD, the son of perdition Popes were given civil authority in Rome.
Lion of Judah points to a pretrib rapture before the antichrist.
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.
Lion of Judah says that Messiah’s Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24 is about the antichrist and end times.
The context of Messiah’s Olivet Discourse is the desolation of the temple that He just came out of, in which He rebuked the Jewish leaders who were seeking to kill Him. He proclaimed that judgment would come upon them in that generation. We know that within a generation, the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70 AD caused Jerusalem, the temple and the Jewish nation to be desolated. 1.1 million Jews died in and around Jerusalem from famine, pestilence, infighting, suicide, evisceration, crucifixion and by the Roman sword.
Lion of Judah points to 1 John 4:3 and the spirit of the antichrist
The antichrist beast Popes deny God by proclaiming 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.
The antichrist beast 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. The Popes deny Messiah by proclaiming to be the high priest of His church, but they teach a false gospel of works through the sacraments. The Popes deny Messiah by proclaiming that Mary is the intercessor to the Father.
Lion of Judah teaches a 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.
