A third temple has not happened and will not happen. Not one stone here will be left upon another. Daniel has three references to the abomination. The first one is Antiochus IV and he shall make it desolate. The second is the Umayyad dynasty and they shall place the Dome of the Rock which now stands in the holy place preventing the daily sacrifice.
A Fit with Daniel
A commander and not a prince. Big difference. Mohammed is the king of the south. Fatimah is his daughter. His commander, Muawiyah, became the king of the north. Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan, a caliph of the Umayyad dynasty started by Muawiyah and a raiser of taxes, built the Dome of the Rock which is the abomination spoken of by Daniel.
A Beast of Daniel
A lion, a bear, a leopard, a fourth beast. John’s beast is also like Daniel’s. The “ten horns” also ties them together. What makes a beast a beast? The Temple. Babylon destroyed the first one. Greece desecrated the second. Rome destroyed the second. Islam is preventing the third. The Abomination of desolation prevents the daily sacrifice.
A Dome of the Rock
A desolation. What is in the holy place now? The Dome of the Rock is preventing the third temple and that makes Islam a beast different from all the others. The “ten horns” are the ten dynasties of Islam. Counted by Islamic sources. The Ottoman Empire, the tenth dynasty, ended the thousand year Christian empire, The Byzantine Empire, in 1453.
A King of the South
a king of the north. A fit with Fatimah, Mohammed, and Muawiyah. A fit with Daniel 11:6; the king’s daughter of the south shall come to the king of the north. The dynasty started by Muawiyah built the Dome of the Rock which prevents the third temple. It is the abomination of desolation mentioned by Jesus. A fit with Daniel 11:31: the abomination that maketh desolate.
a beast in the making. What makes a beast a beast? Daniel knows beasts and the abomination of desolation mentioned by Jesus. Babylon destroyed the first temple. Greece desecrated the second and Rome destroyed it. Islam and the Dome of the Rock is preventing the third. The four beasts of Daniel.
a king of the north. A fit with Islam. Fatimah, daughter of Mohammed who was king of the south, would have to deal with Muawiyah after he became the king of the north. The Umayyad dynasty, started by Muawiyah, placed the abomination that maketh desolate. The Dome of the Rock.
a king of the north, a fit with history. Mohammed, the king of the south, and his daughter, Fatimah, along with Muawiyah, the king of the north is a perfect fit with Daniel 11. The abomination of desolation, the Dome of the Rock, was built by the Umayyad dynasty started by Muawiyah.
a revelation in Daniel. What makes a beast a beast? Daniel knows beasts and abominations. Jesus wanted us to pay attention to them. An abomination is something that you do to the holy place. The Temple. Only a beast would mess with the Temple. With only two Temples, how do you get four beasts?
