A desolation. The abomination of desolation, spoken of by Jesus, leads us to the abomination in Daniel. They shall take away the daily sacrifice. That’s the Temple. The first one destroyed by Babylon. The second desecrated by Greece and destroyed by Rome. Islam is preventing the third. That is what makes a beast a beast.
A desolation. Babylon destroyed the first temple. Greece desecrated the second. Rome destroyed the second. Islam is preventing the third. The four beasts of Daniel. They all messed with the temple. That is what determines a beast in the mind of Daniel. John seems to agree. Jesus mentioned it. What is in the holy place now?
A desolation. The abomination of desolation spoken of by Jesus. What is in the holy place now? The Dome of the Rock placed by the the second dynasty of Islam. Who knows abominations and beasts? Daniel.
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 beast. What makes a beast? The temple. Don’t mess with the temple. Daniel’s beasts did. Babylon destroyed the first temple. Greece desecrated the second. Rome destroyed the second. Islam is preventing the third. Enter the Dome of the Rock. What is now in the holy place spoken of by Jesus?
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 Holy Place
a daily sacrifice shall be taken away. What is in the Holy Place now? Daniel has three references to abomination. The first is “he” and most agree he was Antiochus IV Epiphanes. The second is “they” shall place the abomination which is a better fit with the Dome of the Rock that is preventing the daily sacrifice.
A Holy Place
a desolation. They shall place the abomination that maketh desolate. Who are they? What is being placed that would take away the daily sacrifice? What is in the holy place now? What is preventing the third temple? It has been there for over 13 centuries.
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?
