This Revelation Timeline Decoded post reviews a video by On Point Preparedness called The Identity of the Restrainer of 2 Thessalonians 2.
On Point Preparedness points to the Roman government as an option, but then dismisses it as a preterist belief.
This lacks integrity, because he cites early church fathers and the Protestant Reformers, who pointed to the Roman government, but they were not preterists. He misleadingly did not proclaim the historicist position.
On Point Preparedness gave an explanation that’s based on an end-times falling away.
The falling away that the Apostle Paul warned about took place in the fourth century, when Emperor Constantine and the Roman bishops codified Romanism, the false Christian religion which moved people away from the Scriptural faith and created man-made traditions.
After centuries of harsh persecution by the Roman Emperors, believers apostatized their faith and joined with the church of Rome to take positions of power.
The Roman Catholic Church is the harlot church of Revelation 17, which is led by the antichrist beast Pope.
On Point Preparedness gave an explanation that’s based on an end-times son of perdition.
The Popes of Rome proclaim to lead Messiah’s church, but they teach a false Gospel and a false Messiah, as they proclaim that Mary is the intercessor to the Father. The Popes have already proclaimed to be God, to forgive sins and to provide salvation, which is blasphemy.
The Popes fulfill prophecy as the man of sin as they cause Catholics to sin by calling him Holy Father, by making and bowing to idols of Mary, by killing saints during the Dark Ages and Inquisition, by making repetitious prayers using beads, by praying to Mary as the supposed intercessor to the Father, and by believing in salvation through their sacraments which leaves them lost in their sins.
On Point Preparedness gave an explanation that’s based on an end-times one-man antichrist.
Antichrist means ‘against Christ’ or ‘in place of Christ.’ By that we can see that 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.
On Point Preparedness 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 On Point Preparedness 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.
