This Revelation Timeline Decoded post features a video from The Remnant Radio, called Who Is The Antichrist?
Before I begin my review of The Remnant Radio explanations, let me declare that I do these type of reviews, not just to expose false teachers; but to show what they teach, which you may have also been taught, so that you can see the truth and the deception.
These reviews serve as an open rebuttal of their explanations. It’s not about me, it’s about the truth of prophecy fulfillment which reveals the glory of our beloved Messiah!
I shared the truth of the historical fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9 with Remnant Radio on their interview with me on September 22, 2020.
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.
This means that the concept of an end-times seven-year tribulation featuring a one-man antichrist is a false narrative that was created by the enemy to deceive the end-times saints.
Sadly, instead of The Remnant Radio hosts learning the historical fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9 , they just went on believing the deceptions of the enemy.
I explain the historical fulfillment on The 70th Week Of Daniel 9 Decoded website, videos, audios and book.
To my disappointment, the premise of this Remnant Radio video is off-target, as the antichrist is not one man who appears in the end times, but rather prophecy is pointing to the office of the papacy, the popes of Rome.
Kim Riddlebarger, the guest on the Remnant Radio, noted that the Reformers with one voice declared that the popes fulfill Bible prophecy as the son of perdition and the antichrist.
In the 16th century, when the Protestant Reformers all proclaimed 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.
Sadly, Kim Riddlebarger and the Remnant Radio hosts just brushed aside the witness of the Protestant Reformers, as if it doesn’t apply to us today.
Kim Riddlebarger, the guest on the Remnant Radio, said that the reason why there’s been so much confusion through history about the antichrist is because he hasn’t appeared yet and until he does, no one is going to get that guess right.
This is a sad statement, as history proves out that the popes of Rome are the primary enemy of Messiah and His saints.
Henry Grattan Guinness, an Irish Protestant Christian preacher, evangelist and author; wrote a book called History Unveiling Prophecy which features the witness of many theologians about how Daniel, Paul and John all pointed to the office of the papacy, the popes of Rome; who lead the harlot Roman Catholic Church.
Kim Riddlebarger, the guest on the Remnant Radio, says that the antichrist is still being restrained, in reference to 2 Thessalonians 2:7.
If the restrainer was the saints preaching the Gospel, as Kim says; or the Holy Spirit; Paul would have just said that. But he didn’t name the restrainer as proclaiming that the Roman Emperor would be removed from civil power would have invited more persecution.
The restrainer was the Western Roman Emperor who prevented the Roman pope from taking power over the Roman beast kingdom. After the Western Roman Emperor was removed from office in 476 AD, during the fourth trumpet judgment, the popes were given civil and ecclesiastic authority shortly afterward in 538 AD.
The son of perdition, the man of sin, has already appeared, as the popes proclaim to lead Messiah’s church, thus they sit in the temple. The popes have already proclaimed to be God, to forgive sins and provide salvation, which is blasphemy.
The popes proclaim to lead Messiah’s one-true church, but they have misled billions of Catholics with a false gospel of works through the sacraments and a false intercessor in Mary.
The popes have used Catholics to torture and kill tens of millions of Messiah’s saints during the Dark Ages and Inquisition.
The popes removed the second commandment about making and bowing to graven images, and they cause Catholic to revere the forbidden graven images of Mary, and the wicked crucifix which keeps Messiah on the cross, which openly mocks Him.
The popes have their priests carry out the blasphemous Eucharist ceremony in churches around the world, in which they proclaim to pull Messiah down from heaven to sacrifice Him over and over for sin, which denies Messiah’s one-time atonement for all sin.
The popes forbid their priests from marrying, which is not Scriptural and has led to many priests being homosexual, and to them raping nuns and children.
This is just a partial list of the sins, but if doing those things in the name of Jesus Christ is not antichrist, then nothing is!
Kim Riddlebarger, the guest on the Remnant Radio, says that the says that the antichrist heresy is to oppose the Gospel.
During the Dark Ages, the antichrist beast popes banned and burned the Scriptures which proclaim the Gospel, and they killed tens of millions of saints who proclaimed the Gospel.
The popes teach the false gospel of Romanism in the name of Jesus Christ, which has misled billions of Catholics. How does that not fit the description?
Kim Riddlebarger, the guest on the Remnant Radio, says that John’s beast figure is geopolitical, with state, economic, military and police power, using it to stop the church.
The popes of Rome rose to power over the ten kingdoms of the fallen Roman Empire, fulfilling the role of the little horn of Daniel 7. They ruled in civil and ecclesiastic power for 1,260 years from 538-1798 AD, when they commanded kings to bow to their authority.
Even today, we see that the leaders of countries, religions and businesses, fly to the Vatican to meet with the popes of Rome.
Kim Riddlebarger, the guest on the Remnant Radio, says that in the Olivet Discourse, Messiah is not talking to His disciples and that He tricked them into thinking that He’s answering their question, but He’s talking to us.
Just wow! Kim is saying that Messiah deceived His disciples! That’s heresy!
All of the things that Messiah described from Matthew 23:36 to Matthew 24:33 were fulfilled by 70 AD. The enemy has deceived people about the symbolism of the sun, moon, and stars being darkened; Messiah coming in power and glory; and the elect being gathered. But the Bible gives the proper definitions for the symbols.
The term ‘this generation’ was used ten times in Matthew, the last time in Matthew 24:34. The previous nine times it points to the Jews who lived during Messiah’s first advent. When you take Messiah at His Word you see the fulfillment of His Olivet Discourse and how the things that He described took place in that generation of Jews, for their punishment of continuing their rebellion against the Father, for delivering Messiah up to be killed, and for persecuting His disciples.
They proclaimed ‘let His blood be on us,’ and that prophetic statement was fulfilled in that generation, during the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70 AD, when Jerusalem, the temple and the Jewish nation were desolated.
Kim Riddlebarger, the guest on the Remnant Radio, made the quote, “the only interpreter of these prophecies ultimately is their fulfillment.”
There’s proof that most of the prophecies in Revelation have already been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years.
Sadly, the enemy has blinded the eyes of the end-times saints, so that they’ve been misled by the false, futuristic explanations which deflects blame away from the antichrist beast popes and the false prophet Jesuit Superior Generals.
Some teachers are simply misled. Others are wolves in the church whose role is to misled the saints.
The saints taught the Historicist narrative of prophecy fulfillment, that the prophecies in Revelation have been in the process of being fulfilled since the apocalyptic vision was given. It’s only during the last few centuries that the enemy’s false, futuristic prophecy fulfillment explanations have become so popular.
Kim Riddlebarger, the guest on the Remnant Radio, was asked, who is Gog and Magog? He gave an example of people from the north who attack Palestine.
That’s really interesting, as Gog is Lord Rothschild and Magog is the Khazar Jews who control Zionist Israel. They came primarily from Russia and Poland.
They are the descendants of the Khazarian kingdom, who converted to Judaism in the 8th century AD. They are Jews by religion, not blood.
Almost all of the Israeli Prime Ministers changed their last names to sound more Jewish. They are the ‘Jews who say they are Jews but do lie and are of the Synagogue of Satan‘ which Messiah foretold in Revelation 3.
They destroyed many hundreds of villages in the unwalled cities of Palestine. They stole the land from the Palestinians, and killed many. And they still harshly persecute the Palestinians.
Kim Riddlebarger, the guest on the Remnant Radio, gave an Old Testament example of locust pointing to something that could be like a helicopter.
What he didn’t say is that the Old Testament has several examples of locust pointing to the people of Arabia. The zoology of the fifth trumpet points to the deserts of Arabia, as their prize their horses of war, and have many locust and scorpions.
The Fifth Trumpet represents Elohim using the Arabian (Mohammedan) army against the Roman Empire from 632-782 AD, which is 150 years (5 months x 30 days = 150 days). They wore turbans (crowns of gold); they had beards (faces of men, as the Roman shaved); they had long hair like women; they wore chain-mail (breast-plates of iron); and they were fierce (teeth of lions). The ‘falling star’ was Mohammed, the ‘smoke’ out of Satan’s bottomless pit is the false religion of Islam, which hides the Gospel from Arabs eyes.
Kim Riddlebarger, the guest on the Remnant Radio, points to a future 200 million man army crossing the Euphrates.
This erroneous explanation is based on their belief that most of the prophecies in Revelation take place during the last 3 1/2 years, before Messiah returns.
The 6th Trumpet represents Elohim releasing the Turks to cross over the Euphrates River to conquer 1/3rd of the Roman Empire for 391 years (prepared for the hour and day and month and year, 1 + 30 + 360 = 391) from 1062-1453 AD. They used gunpowder muskets, so ‘fire, smoke and brimstone’ appeared at their horses mouths. They used large cannons, some with the faces of lions on them, to knock down the thick protective walls of Constantinople.
Kim Riddlebarger, the guest on the Remnant Radio, says that the mark of the beast is someone who identifies with the antichrist system, who denies their baptism.
Again, this explanation is based on their false, futuristic prophecy fulfillment explanations.
History shows that the mark of the beast is revering (mark on forehead) and obeying (mark on right hand, actions) the antichrist beast pope of Rome.
The teachings of Kim Riddlebarger and the hosts of Remnant Radio serve to deflect blame away from the antichrist beast pope, the false prophet Jesuit Superior General and the harlot church of Rome!
Kim Riddlebarger and the hosts of Remnant Radio teach 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.
