The Abomination of Desolation
by Sherry Shriner

 

You could think of several things in regards to Abomination of Desolation. Such as Obama "nation" of desolation...since he's actively pursuing the globalist agenda to destroy America and make it desolate. Or causing other countries to become desolate through his wars against them.

But more specifically in the Bible it speaks about the coming Abomination of Desolation in the books of Daniel, Matthew, and Revelation.

 

Matthew 24:14 And this gospel (message) of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

24:15 When ye therefore shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place (whose readeth, let him understand:)

24:16 Then let him which be in Judea flee into the mountains.

24:17 Let him which is on the house-top not come down to take anything out of his house....

24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

This Abomination of Desolation 'stands in the holy place.' Now notice the admonishment in verse 24:15 (whose readeth, let him understand). In other words, if the holy place was 'the Jewish temple' then why the admonishment? Everyone would know that's what the passage is referring to, but the real meaning is hidden, that's why it admonishes the reader to 'understand' what is meant by 'holy place' because it's not the "Jewish temple.' The rest of the passage is urging people to run to safety quickly because a time of great tribulation and affliction is about to begin, something so bad the world has never experienced it before and after this time, would never experience it again.

In Matthew it continues to warn that after the Abomination of Desolation...false christs and false prophets shall arise showing 'great signs and wonders' that if it were possible the very elect would be deceived. This doesn't say the 'bride' won't be deceived, it just says the 'elect' won't be.  Then a period of great deception begins ended by the Second Coming of Christ Himself (verse 30). This gives us a time frame of when the Abomination of Desolation begins. When the second beast arises of Revelation 13 known as the "False Prophet."

In Daniel it gets interesting, in chapter 11 it mentions several times the last days beast (also known as the Antichrist) as having an intense hatred and anger against a holy covenant. This "covenant" is an agreement, alliance, treaty between God and man. It's these people who are part of this covenant that he hates, that he deceives with bribes.

Who are these people? The people of the covenant? They are Yahuah's people. Believers in Yahushua and Yahuah, the Most High God.

There are several covenants throughout the Bible, so how do we know which one this is? Throughout chapter 11 it speaks of his hatred of the 'holy covenant."

This isn't some political treaty between Israel and the Jews as portrayed by the churches that are dominated by high ranking masons...the Bible doesn't say anything about it being a political treaty or legislation that is referred to in fact it makes clear that it is a religious covenant by describing it as sacred and holy.

Satan hates the "holy covenant" and in particular the people of the covenant. The term "holy" according to Strong's concordance means sacred, covenant means divine ordinance with signs or pledges. It is God's covenant with man that this 'beast' hates, and especially the people who are under it.

So what does he do? He sets out to destroy the people of the covenant with flatteries and deceptions, and if that doesn't work death and imprisonment as shown below.

 

Daniel says in Chapter 11:

vs31 And arms (military and political strength) shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary (temple, body) of strength (stronghold, temple of God), and shall take away the daily (sacrifice), and they shall place (to give, put, set) the abomination that maketh desolate (causes ruin).

vs.32  And such as do wickedly against the covenant (alliance, agreement between God and man), shall he corrupt (deceive) by flatteries (money, wealth, health, freedom): but the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits.

vs.33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many; yet they shall fall by the sword (be killed), and by flame (fire), by captivity (imprisonment), and by spoil (robbed of their possessions) many days.

vs.34 Now when  they shall fall, they shall be holpen (helped) with a little help; but many shall cleave to them with flatteries (join us, you'll get lots of money, special abilities, blah blah bribes and more bribes).

vs.35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end; because it is yet for a time appointed.

So how do we know this isn't about a political treaty between the Jews and Arabs? Because it never mentions them. It specifically mentions the people of the covenant who are targeted to be corrupted by deceptions and flatteries...but the people who 'do know their God" the ones who walk the talk...do exploits...and the 'big mouths' who teach and instruct others (alternative news sites, watchmen, those who love the Lord) are killed, imprisoned and robbed of their possessions.

Notice he says THEY GIVE-PUT-SET the abomination. This isn't referring to a building or a temple made with hands but something such as a tattoo or chip implant. I often see the term "syringa" in the Bible Codes. Perhaps they administer it via vaccine or some kind of shot.

Let's look briefly at the most misquoted Scripture in regards to the Arab and Jews treaty that the churches and 'prophecy gurus' refer to today. In Daniel chapter 9 we read that Daniel had a vision and then the Archangel Gabriel was sent to him to explain it and this is what he told Daniel:

vs. 24 Seventy weeks (seventy times seven years which is 490 years. Gabriel is telling him that this vision/prophecy will be fulfilled and completed during that time span) are determined upon thy people and upon the holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

vs. 25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. (Nehemiah led the way to rebuild Jerusalem).

vs.26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself (He died on the cross and rose three days later): and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary: and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. (Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD).

vs.27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many (makes a new covenant with man) for one week; and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease (Levitical Priesthood done away with. He died to put an end to the ceremonial law by being the perfect sacrifice) and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate (temple and Jerusalem), even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

The unbelieving Jews were steadfast in continuing in the old ways of temple worship and the ceremonial laws, so Yahushua destroyed the temple, the holy city, and the Levitical priesthood via the Romans. A desolation that could never be repaired because all of the records were  destroyed and the Levitical priesthood could never be reestablished. Yah put an end to it! It was no longer needed.

Psalm 111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant forever holy and reverend is his name.

Jeremiah 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts and will be their God and they shall be my people.

This prophecy was a timeline about the rebuilding of Jerusalem, the arrival and death of Yahushua, and the following destruction of Jerusalem after His death. It's not referring to a 7 year tribulation period when at the middle the Antichrist breaks his covenant with Israel as taught today. This prophetic event was already fulfilled and concluded in 70 AD, by the Roman Army, under Titus, who destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple. (for more commentary on this passage click here)

Covenants are promises, agreements, such as "if you do this, I'll do that." The Lord's final covenant with mankind was through His redemption and this is the covenant we are under now, which makes all believers of the Lord, the "people of the covenant."

John 3:16-17  For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved. (He's the ONLY one who can save you, and Satan knows it, that's why he targets Yah's people).

Acts 16:31 ...Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ (Yahushua is His real 'untranslated" name) and thou shalt be saved...

Isaiah 45:22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth for I am God, and there is none else. (His salvation is open to everyone in the world, there is no salvation through any other person or being on the planet but through HIM)

He provided our redemption, now all we have to do is believe it, accept it, and follow Him. In doing so, we are given eternal life in heaven with Him. And this is why Satan hates the people of the covenant. Those who accept Yahushua's salvation and follow Him. (if you have never accepted His salvation click here)

In fact what he intends to do against them is warned in several places of the Bible. In particular Revelation 13 where the first thing he does when he comes to power is make known his hatred toward God and his followers and implements a 'war on the Saints." 

 

vs.5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great (terrible) things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months (3 1/2 years).

vs.6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

vs.7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

I think you could assume he gets his ruling position directly from the United Nations itself, he probably takes over it completely. He is after all, appointed as the new global ruler and leader.  He is given power, his seat, and great authority by Satan himself  "...and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority" (vs.2). A 'seat' is a position of kingly power, such as a throne also used in the New Testament as a metaphor for "governor of the world."
 

And he brings his own help, "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and spake as a dragon" (vs. 11...he appears to be religious and spiritual but he speaks like Satan the dragon. He will cunningly twist Scripture and lie and deceive people).

As the deputy of the first beast, he has great abilities and powers to produce great signs and wonders, and deceives many by the miracles he performs (vs. 13 and 14). He even is given political authority over the people of the world. He causes an image to be made of the first beast and then gives 'life' to the image so that it 'moves and speaks' and demands (legislates) that every person on earth worship this image of the beast, and those who refuse will be killed. He also causes (legislates) every person on earth to receive a "mark" in/on their right hand or forehead of the first beast's name, number, or mark cannot buy or sell anything without it.

vs.15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed

vs.16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in thier foreheads.

vs.17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

vs.18 Here is wisdom, let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six (666).

 

Here is where there is great misunderstanding among many people. You won't be killed for refusing the 'mark of the beast'...you are killed for refusing to worship the image of the beast. There is much speculation as to what this 'image of the beast' is. Is it a statue? Most likely. And what is the mark? Is it a Chip? Most likely.

Without this 'mark' or having his name or number on/in your right hand or forehead it will be impossible to buy or sell anything. You can't perform any kind of' business without it or operate a business without it. You can't buy groceries, gas, clothes, you can't function in society without it. So those who refuse this 'mark, name, number' will have to live off the grid and provide for themselves. This will be so burdensome to many that they will just accept this 'mark' out of aggravation and frustration, losing their souls for doing so. For those who accept this 'mark, name, number' are given over to Satan and forfeit heaven and salvation.

The Bible describes a plague of boils/sores on those who accept the mark of the beast and worship his image "...and there fell a noisome (troublesome, injurious, destructive) and grievous (causing pain) sore (wound producing discharge) upon the men (people) which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image (Rev. 16:2). You also don't see them listed in heaven with Yah (Rev. 20:4).

This time period when the two beasts of Revelation 13 are operating on the earth together is known as "The Time of Jacob's Trouble" or "The Great Tribulation Period" or "The Day of the Lord" and "The Hour of Temptation". People refer to it in various ways and many things happen during this time of 'testing' that comes upon the world.

What's He testing? The faith of the people. Will they repent of their sins and turn to Him? Or will those who do follow and serve Him stay faithful to Him and refuse to follow Satan and his 'beasts" becoming overcomers?

One of the most notable events of this time period is the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION. Because if you miss any of the signals that this Tribulation Period has started, this one alone should wake you up!

The Abomination of Desolation brings about the "hour of temptation upon the world." The term hour in this instance is a metaphor and means short space of time. The time of testing those on earth to join or not join Satan's kingdom on earth by receiving his mark, name, or number, on or in your right hand or forehead.

                     
Just a harmless chip implant...just a harmless tattoo...don't listen to them folks! This "mark" is the Abomination that causes Desolation!!
 
 
In the Bible it says when the Abomination of Desolation sits in the holy place then the end is near. The holy place referring to the temple which Yahushua states many times is a person's body. Your BODY IS THE HOLY PLACE, THE TEMPLE that is being referred to. Not a building made with hands.
 
John 2:19 Yahushua answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.

vs.20 Then said the Jews, forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?

vs.21 But he spake of the temple of his body.

Here is one of those Scriptures that's a great parallel because it has more than one meaning.

 

Matt. 21:13  And Jesus went into the temple of God and cast out all of them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves and said unto them, it is written, My house shall be the house of prayer, but ye have made it a den of thieves.

 

The body is a temple and you are to use it for good and to honor Him, but many make their temple a place for serpents and they lay it desolate. In other words this temple incident in Matthew can also be a parallel to the meaning that His 'house' the body He gave us, is to be a house of prayer (and worship to Him), but people have made it a den of thieves.  And when you make your temple habitable for a 'den of thieves'  because of sin, you become possessed by evil entities and beings and can even be soul scalped where THEY take over your body and possess it and you have no control of what they are doing to you and through you. You become a bystander in your own body. In the extreme, they simply kill you and take over your body or imprison your soul elsewhere while they are operating in your body as 'you.'

Even Saul-Paul an operative for the Masons in the Roman Government understood that the real temple of the Jews was no longer required because under Yah's new covenant with man, man became a living temple for His Spirit:

"Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are" (I Cor. 3:16,17)

"What know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?" (I Cor. 6:19)

"And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God ; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people" (2 Cor. 6:16).

See my article The Kingdom of God (it's within you)

In the New Testament, when Yahushua was sent to become a perfect sacrifice for us and died on the cross and defeated death by rising from the dead three days later...the temple of old was no longer one made by hands...but became our own bodies filled with His Holy Spirit for those who accepted His Salvation and redemption. It is the believer, filled with His Spirit, that is considered "a holy place" therefore when the abomination of desolation sits in a holy place...it means the body. And it means Christians are either voluntarily taking the mark or being deceived and accepting the mark of the beast through deception.

Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.

Rev. 13:16-17 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save (unless) he had that mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 

That is The Abomination of Desolation...

Matthew 24: When ye therefore shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet stand in the holy place, (whose readeth, let him understand) Then let him which be in Judea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the roof top not come down to take any thing out of his house (stressing urgency to RUN): Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! For then shall be great Tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Yahushua is warning people to RUN for the mountains when the Abomination of Desolation sits in the holy place...when the enforcement of the beast's mark is declared upon the whole world and demanded that every person receive the beast's (global ruler) mark, name or number in or on his or her's right hand or forehead.

The Abomination that makes Desolate is a chip or tattoo or perhaps even both (you can choose a chip implant with a syringe or a tattoo because even ink can contain chips in them they are so tiny.

It is this "mark-name-number" that is the abomination because it causes and makes your body, the Lord's temple, to become desolate (of His Spirit and becomes a habitation of devils, demons, evil entities and beings).

Don't wait for a literal temple in Jerusalem to be rebuilt folks, it's smoke and mirrors to keep you distracted so you won't recognize what the real Abomination of Desolation is and how it will take place.
