The Abomination That Makes Desolate Revealed

The Abomination

Deceiving the world, turning people away from God’s word, deceiving them with power; and signs; and lying wonders; with miracles. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness or wickedness; those that perish because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion.

This same deception was already working in Paul’s day and it is working very hard in the world today. There have been and are, MANY false teachers and false prophets in the world today!

This final abomination is just that; the FINAL ABOMINATION.

Jesus tells us that the appearance of the abomination standing on the Holy {lace will trigger the great tribulation.  What is teh Holy Place/  The whole temple mount is holy to god even if in a state of decay and pollution, it will ultimately be cleansed and a new millennial temple will be built on the site by Jesus Christ at his coming.

Mat 24:13   When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

We know that this great tribulation period will last for a maximum of 1,260 days or 42 months: 

Rev 11:1   And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

Rev 13:5   And there was given unto him; [the bestial ruler of the coming new Europe] a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

We then know that the tribulation will last no longer than 1,260 days, and that it will end with the coming of Christ and the casting of the abomination and the European leader into a lake of fire.

Rev 19:20   And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Now the question:  It the abomination spoken of by daniel is to stand on the temple mount triggering a tribulation of 1,260 days; whay does daniel say that the abomination will have 1,335 days from the time it is set up?

Dan 12:11   And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

There is only one conclusion possible.  The abomination is set up 1,335 days minus 1,260 days, or 75 days before going to the Holy Place.

Now consider that crosses, pictures and idols have been around for thousands of years and yet the abomination is set up yet in the future!

The abomination is NOT an idol or a picture or cross!  the abomination is the man who calls for a new Europe based on the traditional Church State, Holy Roman Empire model.

Please see  The Scarlet Beast; Rev 17: and The Kings of the North and South for some of the history of the Holy Roman Empire and its connection to teh Vatican.

Scripture tells us that there is yet one more and final revival of a united federal Europe to come.

This revival will be orchestrated by a false religious leader or false prophet who has the influence in Europe to bring this about.

This last Pope will appear as a godly lamb and yet will teach his own ways rather than God’s ways;

Rev 13:11   And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast [the Roman governance system now dead] before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

[calling for a resurrection of this Holy Roman Empire system which was previously destroyed]

13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

An image can be a likeness or replica; and this false prophet who is an abomination to God and tries to appear as a lamb of God; speaks the words of satan in calling for a revival of this church state system in Europe.

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.

The Abomination of Daniel is that final man of sin, the son of perdition; to be set up in the Papacy 1,335 days before his destruction by the coming Christ. 

He will be set up as Pope and then call for a new Europe and about 75 days later will go to the temple mount triggering the great tribulation and the occupation of Jerusalem and Judea by the forces of the new Europe.

For some years the Vatican has been working on a united federal Europe and is now openly preparing people for the coming call by the final false prophet, the abomination spoken of by Daniel.

This abomination deceives most by showing himself to be a meek godly lamb; yet there is a great dichotomy between his words and his deeds.

He declares “obey God”; yet in deeds he rejects God’s commandments deciding for himself what is right or wrong and justifying that with the “Primacy of Peter”  heresy.

God says “Keep my Sabbath holy”  which is Fri sunset to Sat sunset, yet the Catholic church says “We have changed the Sabbath to Sunday”, and they then walk all over God’s Sabbath to do their own thing. And on and on with God’s commandments, despising the word of God for their own carnal traditions.

Why are so many so easily deceived? Because people don’t love the truth. They don’t love the word of God. They’re content to sit back and be told what to think and what to do. They’re content to be led around by the nose. They are not ready to study the word of God, to prove all things. They are not testing what these people say, or what this or that man says or what any prophet or teacher says.

They are just letting themselves be led about, because they do not love the truth. Most people are not willing to make the effort to seek out the truth.

2 Thess 2:10, Because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them a strong delusion, and they shall believe a lie. That they all might be damned who believe not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness or wickedness.

Those who are willing to be led about, who are not willing to take the time and the effort to open mindedly study God’s word, to test and question all things, to prove all things, to hold fast that which is good, and to DO what they have learned and keep the commandments of God. And to test the prophets, to test the apostles, to test the evangelist and see whether what they are saying is true or not. To see if what they are saying is consistent with God’s word or not.

If you are not willing to apply the acid test of the Word of God, and prefer to just study the out of context scriptures they provide and twist, along with the false reasoning’s of spiritual con artists; If you will not make the effort to do the legwork, to do the preparation, to do the study, to learn to discern between right and wrong, and holy and profane, and good and evil, to learn to separate the wheat from the chaff, then you will be led around and led astray. And you will be deceived, because the deception is very strong, it is incredibly powerful.

This final false prophet will do tremendous miracles and he will doubtless do them in an attempt to duplicate the miracles of Jesus Christ so as to demonstrate to the people that he is a godly and Christ like person. That he is a holy and righteous person. This final false prophet shall appear like a lamb. He will appear gentle, meek, even weak, vulnerable. He will be a peace lover, he will present himself as a man of peace, as a man of honor, as a godly person.

We find him described in Revelation 13:11, And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as [the words of the devil] a dragon.

He does not speak the words of God,  yet he has the appearance of a lamb, an appearance of godliness. But he did not speak godly words. He spoke the words of the dragon, the devil.

He speaks many smooth things of peace and happiness but he lies for he speaks of false ways to achieve those wonderful gifts that come through enthusiastic obedience to all of God’s commandments.

Very many religious leaders today do this very same thing, enticing people to forget their zeal for the Eternal and all of his commandments and to exalt some man as their ultimate moral authority. Such men are false prophets, false teachers, ungodly leaders. Please read through the whole book of Jude.

And what are the words of the dragon, the devil?

His words are; follow me, for I am with God and my words are God’s words! Do what I say. Listen to my interpretation, my take on the Bible. I have the right and the authority and the power from God to substitute the traditions of my church for the Scriptures.

The Scriptures must be interpreted by our church tradition, and our church authority, and by me as the leader of the organization.

The people don’t have enough of God’s spirit, you don’t have enough understanding, you can’t understand the Scriptures. So listen to what I say.

Just sit back and follow me, and everything will be alright between you and God.  If you follow me, for I am God’s servant; God will bless you; and if you leave me, you are leaving God and you are under the curse of damnation!

The false prophet says: I’ll explain it for you; listen to what I say; do what I say. Don’t worry about studying the Bible so much. Look up the Scriptures I tell you to look up, but don’t go wandering off and study independently because you will be confused and that confusion will lead you away from me.

No, God’s spirit won’t lead you away from God. Maybe you’ll get exposed to some truth if you look at God’s word. And if you look at what these people say, or at what a particular false prophet says with an open mind and ask God to give you some understanding and lead you into the truth, maybe you’ll realize that this person is a false prophet; and he does not want you to know that. He does not want you to follow God. He wants to follow himself!

Revelation 13:12, this person who looks like a lamb and who speaks his own words. Who speaks the words of the dragon. Who deceives people away from God into following himself. He exercises the power of the first beast, which is the Roman Empire.

And he exercises the power of the first beast [the government] and causes the earth and them that dwell upon the earth, to worship the first beast whose deadly wound was healed. A revival of the Holy Roman Empire, who’s last revival under Mussolini was destroyed by the sword.

He causes people to worship this government. This church / state governmental system, by telling the people of the earth: “This is a great and godly government. This is a righteous government. This government has my blessing.”

He says: “I am God’s servant and I have put my blessing and my sanction on this government. This is a holy government. It is a godly government.” And he causes people, all the people to stand in awe of this government and this system.

Isn’t this what almost all the major religions proclaim?  “We are the true church of God!”  And then they lead men into sin by saying “obey us for to disobey us is to disobey God”?

THE ABOMINATION

Continuing in v 12, This first beast had a deadly wound which was healed. And if we look at history, we see that the Roman Empire particularly the Holy Roman Empire had several revivals and collapses and the deadly wound which destroyed the Roman Empire, the last time around; will be healed.

Now, this second beast is a man who does great wonders so that he can even make fire come down from heaven on the earth on the sight of men. And he deceives those that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had the power to do in the sight of the beast. Saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image[a replica of] of the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

A wound by a sword speaks of total military destruction; and that took place without any question in WW 2 when the obviously bestial Holy Roman Empire of Mussolini and Hitler ere totally destroyed by the sword.

Now, an image is not necessarily an idol. It is a likeness or a replica. It can be a revival of the same system. And this great and final false prophet who is still coming; will call for the people of Europe [Rome, Babylon] to make a revival or an image or a replica or a likeness of the Roman system. And of course that would have to be in Europe where Rome was.

V 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.

We find that when this final false prophet appears doing great miracles, this Holy Roman Empire Babylonian system [beast] had previously been wounded by a sword and was dead.

And this final false prophet calls for the people of Europe to make an image, a replica of this dead beast, this dead Holy Roman Empire.

And he, this false prophet, has the power to give life unto the image; that is he has the power to bring it back into existence, to revive it, to raise it up.

That this image should speak and should exercise power and causes as many as would not worship it or hold it in esteem, in regard, as many as would resist it should be killed.
