Abomination of Desolation

Understanding the Abomination that causes Desolation

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” See 2 Thess. 2:3-4 (read verses 3 and 4).

This passage, though complicated, gives the precise timing of these momentous events.

The first 3-1/2 years after the signing of the covenant between Israel and the Antichrist is called “The Tribulation”. After the first half is finished, the Antichrist will go into the soon to be built third Temple declaring and showing himself to be God. When he does this, it is called the Abomination of Desolation which begins the second half of the tribulation called “The Great Tribulation”. It is at this point where religious Babylon has or soon will be destroyed and the Mark of the Beast has been or shortly will be implemented. Everyone will be required to worship the beast by taking his mark and pledging their loyalty to the beast or be beheaded by the guillotine (Rev. 20:4).

The apostle Paul said it this way: “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, (a reference to the apostate church – or a falling away of faith), and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposed and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thess. 2:3-4).

NOTE: The first 7 early translations of the bible used the word departure instead of falling away.
