On Point Preparedness The Identity of the Restrainer of 2 Thessalonians 2

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.

Read Prophecy Points To The Leader Of The Roman Beast Study

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.

Read The Falling Away of 2 Thessalonians 2

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.

Read The Son Of Perdition Of 2 Thessalonians 2 

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.

Lion of Judah Religion Of Antichrist VideoOn 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.

  1. Hi David,

    Thank you for sharing the false prophecy explanations by On Point Preparedness (OPP) and then showing the true, Biblical prophecy explanations based on history, Scripture, and prophecy.

    Yes, OPP is a futurist. I discovered that soon after he lures you in with some great truth (at first). I stopped listening to OPP a long time ago.

    Also, OPP seems to take the position that a Christian does not need weapons for self-defense and that doing so is not Biblical. To me, OPP’s position is not not Biblical but that is a different subject for a different day.

    Question: Would you kindly point to exactly where (link, article etc) you discovered this preterist/futurist falsehood OPP speaks of? In other words, was it in a recent video, article, blog?

    Thank you,

  2. Hello David,
    I was wondering what you think about a you tube page called Amazing discoveries episode 503-The New Age agenda, ReformedWiki2.0 , Mike Winger, Let my people know,E511 ministries, Ray Comfort, Crossed Examined, Voddie Baucham, and Genesis apologetics videos. Also what are your thoughts on how Transhumanism, mixing iron and clay, may play into the final conflict?

    • Hi Sherry, it’s hard to review every ministry, but discerning false prophecy fulfillment teachers is easy when you understand that most of the prophecies in Revelation have been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years, and that the office of the papacy is the antichrist.

      If a ministry is not teaching you those things, they’re off-target.

      As for the iron and clay, I believe that is pointing to the iron of the Roman beast kingdom which is mixed with the miry clay of the Muslims of Islam. This website helps you see that fulfillment: https://ironclayfeet.com

      • Thank you, David. All of these do see the falsities of the papacy but the full picture hasn’t been revealed, did you receive full revelation all at once or through much study? I am suspicious of Amazing discoveries because I found they are adventist and some things they speak of don’t sit right with me especially their idea that they are the only true church based solely on Saturday Sabbath observance when they are not the group to observe it and they are all the Constantine calendar changes but still follow it for Sabbath. The book of Isaih speaks of YHVH’s weariness of all of Israels sabbaths mew moons etc. because the it seems they lost sight of there meaning and later says He will give a new covenant not like that of Moses. I believe there is a reason Messiah tells us to enter into His Rest, the same Rest of genesis ? I do see relevance to much of what is in your book but I want you to know that the knowledge I had of the information was one documentary on Martin Luther 35 years ago and your info wasn’t a part of it but it clued me in to the false doctrine of rcc but I say this in love, you are quite harsh saying people have no excuse, people can’t know something that has been hidden, you just put out your book in 2020 after all , are you witnessing to these ministers that you think are false? I know that AOC welcomes such things and he does speak of end government headed by anti christ and false prophet, he just hasn’t had the revelation you have . Please pray on a more loving approach in this area . Also, could you tell me why you use YAH? Peace

        • Sherry, false prophecy teachers don’t see the enormity of the falsities of the papacy as they don’t teach that the Popes fulfill prophecy as the man of sin, the son of perdition, that antichrist beast who leads the harlot church of Rome, which has misled billions of Catholics with a false gospel.

          Adventists wrongly proclaim that Saturday is the Sabbath, but the Scriptural calendar is not compatible with the pagan Roman calendar. Yah got tired of the way that the Israelites were perverting His Sabbaths and Holy Feast Days.

          I make no apologies for saying that modern prophecy teachers have no excuse. If a simple man like me can find truth in the writings of the saints who have gone before us, so can they. If I can see that the 70th week of Daniel 9 is about Messiah and not the antichrist, so can they.

          These false prophecy teachers are misleading people, so that they’re not prepared for how the end times will play out. And they don’t know who is the antichrist, so they may make the grievous mistake of revering and obeying the antichrist beast Pope in the One World Government.

          I use Yah because it’s the first two letters of the YHWH with the ‘a’ vowel inserted. Many say YaHWeH for the whole name.
