This 70th Week Of Daniel 9 Decoded post features a video from Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries DTBM, called #73 HOW DOES JESUS TELL US TO LIVE–DURING COSMIC QUAKES & ASTRONOMICAL SIGNS?
Video description: This is the series called “Straight From the Bible” and is a collection of some of John Barnett’s all-time most favorite Q&A sessions. All of these videos are short and to the point. We hope they will strengthen, encourage, and help many who are seeking to know the Lord or know Him better!
Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries points to the signs of Acts 2:20
The narrative of Acts 2 is about the saints being filled with the Spirit on Pentecost and speaking the Gospel in different languages. Peter is proclaiming that the fulfillment of the prophecy in Joel were being fulfilled at that time.
The judgment of the Jewish nation took place during the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70 AD. The symbolism of the sun, moon and stars being darkened points to the Jewish leadership system being removed from power.

Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries points to this sign of Revelation 6:12
The symbolism of the sixth seal judgment is pointing to political upheaval, which is symbolized by an earthquake; and the leadership of the Roman Empire being in upheaval as the Emperor’s battled against each other.
Once again, it’s not pointing to the literal sun, moon and stars. How does such a proclaimed theologian not understand this when the Old Testament gives us many examples of this type of language?

Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries points to a rapture before a futuristic 70th week of Daniel 9
The 70th week of Daniel 9 is about Messiah, not the antichrist. Messiah carried out His multi-year ministry during the 70th week and He died in the middle of the week to confirm the covenant (which was mentioned in Daniel 9:4) to atone for our sins as the Spotless Lamb, which ended the need for temple sacrifices.
A 70-week prophecy from the Heavenly Father is fulfilled in 70 consecutive weeks, otherwise is makes no sense to say ’70 weeks are determined.’ It’s not about the end times or the antichrist, that is a deception from the enemy to mislead the end-times saints. This is extremely important to understand.

Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries points to a one man antichrist who breaks the seven year peace treaty.
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 ‘antichrist beast’ of Revelation 13, who leads the ‘harlot’ church of Rome.

Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries teaches a futuristic fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel 9, the Olivet Discourse and the prophecies in Revelation.
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.
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.
