Video description: This is the series called “Straight From the Bible” and is a collection of some of John’s all-time 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 says that every book of the Bible was written by a Jew or under the direct supervision of a Jews.
He has a PhD, yet he somehow thinks that Moses was a Jew! That’s amazing!
Moses is believed to be of Levite lineage. The Torah, also called the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Old Testament, were dictated by the Heavenly Father to Moses.
Moses proclaimed the ten commandments to the twelve tribes of the House of Israel. Moses was not a Jew nor are His books just about the Jews!
Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries declared that covenant theologians say that the church has taken the place of Israel, and dispensationalist think that the church is distinct and not equal to Israel.
Both of those narratives are wrong!
There’s always been an Ekklesia, a Church, of set-apart saints who believed by faith and sought to obey the Heavenly Father. People like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, etc.
In Daniel 9, Daniel is praying about the transgressions of unbelieving Jews and pleaded for the Heavenly Father to remember His everlasting covenant to those who love Him and seek to obey Him.
And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments. Daniel 9:4
The remnant was saved during the Babylonian attack on Israel and were taken captive, while the unbelieving Jews were killed. Daniel was part of the remnant in Babylon.
The same thing is true of the Jews who lived during Messiah’s ministry. The remnant of Jews who believed in Messiah were protected, as they fled Jerusalem before the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70 AD, but the unbelieving Jews were killed.
Many Jews believed in Messiah and were saved, and they played a huge role in the early church. But many rejected Him and delivered Him up to be killed, and they were desolated and removed from power.
Romans 2:28-29 tells us that a Jew is one inwardly, whose heart is circumcised.
“For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.”
Romans 9:6-8 declares that Abraham’s fleshly descendants ARE NOT the children of Elohim.
“For they are not all Israel who are of Israel, nor are they all children because they are the seed of Abraham; but, “In Isaac your seed shall be called.” That is, those who are the children of the flesh, these are NOT the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed.”
Galatians 3:7 tells us that ONLY those who are of faith are the children of Elohim.
“Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham.”
Galatians 3:16 tells us that the seed of Abraham is Messiah.
“Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “and to your Seed,” who is Christ.”
Galatians 3:28-29 tells us that followers of Messiah (Jew and Gentile) are Abraham’s seed who receive the promises made to Abraham.
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
Paul is clearly telling us that true Israel, true Jews, believe by faith, and so inherit the promises made to father Abraham. Everyone who believes in Messiah by faith, are the Chosen People of God. They will inherit Holy Jerusalem when Messiah returns.
The church did not replace Israel and there is no separate dispensation period for the Jews.
Read Messiah’s Kingdom
Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries says that Israel has a future when the church leaves the world.
The concept of a pre-tribulation 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.
Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries points to a future tribulation period when Jews will be saved.
Though we pray that all Jews come into a covenant relationship with the Father through the Son, there will be no future 7-year dispensation period when the Heavenly Father will only deal with the Jews.
Most of the prophecies in Revelation have already been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years, so the premise that they will be fulfilled during a futuristic 7-year tribulation period is a false narrative from the enemy.
Dr. John Barnett of Discover the Book Ministries teaches 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.
