This Olivet Discourse Decoded post features a video from Robert Breaker called ‘Matthew 24 Explained Rightly Divided Proving Pretribulation Rapture.’
Video description: Missionary Evangelist Robert Breaker shows from the word of God that the only biblical view of scriptures is the PRE-TRIBULATION Rapture of the Church, as he RIGHTLY DIVIDES the word of Truth, and then reads Matthew 24, being careful to show it in it’s proper context, proving that it’s written to JEWS and NOT to the Church. This video does well to prove that the Mid-Tribulation (or Pre-Wrath) Rapture Theory is a FALSE BIBLICAL TEACHING, and we were warned by the apostle Paul himself not to swallow such a teaching.
You don’t even have to watch the video to see the many things that are wrong with Robert Breaker’s explanations, as we can see it on his prophecy fulfillment timeline.
Robert Breaker is pointing to a futuristic 70th week of Daniel 9.
The concept of a pre-trib 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.
The 70th week of Daniel 9 is not about the end times or the antichrist, so Robert’s whole explanation is based on a faulty foundation.
Robert Breaker is pointing to an end-times falling away of 2 Thessalonians 2.
After several centuries of the Roman Empire brutally persecuting the saints, Emperor Constantine changed strategies and in 321 AD, he made Roman Christianity the state religion. Satan caused Constantine to do this, to create a new way to try to destroy the true faith. Satan realized that the more he caused the Roman Empire to kill the saints, the faster the Messiah’s assembly grew. So his new strategy was to infiltrate the church and destroy it from within.
Constantine and the Roman bishops combined Pagan idolatry with the true faith, forming the foundation of the Roman Catholic (universal) Church. They changed the names of idols like Isis to Mary, Jupiter to St. Peter, etc. They changed the Scriptural Sabbath to SUN-day, because they worshiped the Sun god. They created the harlot (the apostate church) of Revelation 17.
The appeal of the prestige and power of Rome caused many Christians to compromise their beliefs. Instead of refusing to align with the Pagan Roman Empire, they joined with them, which was the ‘falling away‘ that Paul refers to in 2 Thessalonians 2.
Satan would use the harlot Church of Rome to persecute the saints even more relentlessly than the pagan Roman Empire.
Robert Breaker is pointing to an end-times man of sin, son of perdition.
The ‘temple’ in 2 Thessalonians 2 and Revelation is not a physical temple, but rather the church of Messiah, His Ekklesia of saints. Ephesians 2:19-22
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.
Robert Breaker is pointing to an end-times one-man antichrist.
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.
Robert Breaker’s teachings are effectively hiding these truths.
Robert Breaker is pointing to an end-times time of Jacob’s Trouble.
The time of Jacob’s Trouble took place against the Jewish leaders during the Jewish-Roman War of 66-70 AD, when 1.1 million Jews died in and around Jerusalem from famine, pestilence, infighting, suicide, evisceration, crucifixion and by the Roman sword.
This was their punishment for continuing in their continued rebellion against the Heavenly Father and for rejecting His Son and delivering Him up to be killed in the middle of the 70th week of Daniel. Daniel 12 foretold the 3 1/2 years of the Jewish-Roman War. Messiah’s disciples fled Judea to the mountains as Messiah told them and the Jewish leaders stayed in Jerusalem and were desolated.
I pray that Robert Breaker comes to learn the truth about the fulfillment of the Olivet Discourse.
The exacting fulfillment in the first century proves the validity of the Bible and the deity of Messiah. And it removes false teachings about it being about the end times, so that it doesn’t deceive us.
Matthew records that Messiah pointed to “this generation” ten times. In the final time, Messiah said, “Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.”Matthew 24:34
The nine previous mentions are pointing to the Jews who opposed Messiah. Are we to believe that the tenth time that He described “this generation,” that He is pointing to the end times? No!
The context of Messiah’s Olivet Discourse is the desolation of the temple that He was just in when He rebuked the Jews and said, “Verily I say unto you, all these things shall come upon this generation.”
All of the things that Messiah described from Matthew 23:36 to Matthew 24:33 were fulfilled by 70 AD when the Romans desolated Jerusalem, the temple, and the Jewish nation. 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.
We need to take Messiah at His Word and look at how the things that He described were about the Jewish nation, for their punishment of continuing their rebellion against the Father, for delivering Messiah up to be killed, and for persecuting His disciples.
The Olivet Discourse is directed related to the 70th Week of Daniel 9, which says that the city and temple will be desolated because of the abominations of the Jews.
If you’re seeking for truth, and not to defend a belief, this book will prove out the fulfillment of Messiah’s Olivet Discourse. It will help you see that it’s not about the end times so that you’re not misled about the fulfillment of Revelation, as we await Messiah’s promised return.
