The Final Desolation

Código VBPF-E0014-I

VIEW:572 DATA:2020-03-20
it is from this New Testament principle of spiritual Israel, that Daniel speaks of the abomination of desolation in the third and final period. These references can be found in Daniel 8:13, 11:31 and 12:11 . Insightful students of prophetic history realize that these verses predicted the formation and rise of papal power. it is an indisputable fact of history that the papacy brought into the Christian church, the same practice of ancient paganism by which Jerusalem was destroyed. A small study is enough to see how the cult of images, the cult of Tammuz, and the cult of the sun were introduced to Christianity during the Dark Ages. Many of these abominations are still among us in the form of statues, candles for the saints, rosaries, Easter dawn services and Sunday services.
This is not to say that papal apostasy exonerates Protestantism. Most Protestant churches adhered to apostasy, continuing to practice abominations that have their roots in ancient pagan religions, which were created to destroy the truth of God. Both Catholicism and Protestantism have encouraged abominations in God's holy place, His church. The Christian church is the mirror of literal Israel. We are repeating many of the same sins and will consequently reap the same punishment of desolation, unless we are willing to read the writing on the wall and flee from Babylon.
it is clear that the three occasions of the abomination of desolation found in Daniel resulted from apostasy from the people of God, but what is the sign that tells us when desolation is near?
InLuke 21:20 Jesus told His disciples what would be the last sign of Jerusalem's imminent destruction. He said: "When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come" . This text does not indicate that armies are an abomination, but that armies were the instrument to cause desolation. Through the Roman armies, God executed "the day of vengeance" against Israel's abominations.
When Roman armies surrounded Jerusalem, this was a sign that most of the city's leaders and its inhabitants had crossed the limits of grace and filled their cup with iniquity. For Christians who lived in the city, this would be a sign that Jerusalem would soon suffer God's judgment. As soon as the first opportunity arose, Christians "fled to the hills" (v. 21) . In AD 66, when Cestius, the Roman general, surrounded the city, Christians knew that the promised sign had arrived and the time had come for them to flee. At their first opportunity to escape, they did so, and no Christian died in the horrific destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD.
Just as God gave early Christians a sign of when they should flee Jerusalem, He has also given us a sign. They have done their best to let every Christian know when the time for the stage of this world is coming to an end.
In Revelation 13 and 14 , John reports a list of omens that will tell us how close we are to the end. The sign that will show that the nations have filled their cup of iniquity will be when they make an image for the papacy, uniting the church and the state. How much more clearly can this be done by passing a national Sunday law that will order everyone to worship a day of pagan worship? This event will be a direct fulfillment of Revelation 13: 15-17 , and will ensure that the end times of this Earth are approaching.
One author describes the upcoming events in this way: "As the approach of the Roman army was a sign to the disciples of the impending destruction of Jerusalem, so may this apostasy be a sign to us that the limit of God's patience is reached, that the measure of iniquity of our nations is full, and that the angel of mercy is about to take flight . When the churches have apostatized on their abominations, to the point where a religious law has been enacted, which displaces the holy Sabbath of God for a pagan holiday, we can leave our cities, knowing that a time of trouble is approaching.
The abomination of desolation is an important issue in recent days. If we study this prophecy carefully, we will see that each of its three compliments refers to a national apostasy of the people of God, which ends with its tragic destruction. We are now living in the time of the final apostasy of the Christian church, which renders the commandments of God's Law ineffective. We need to see that we are in the midst of prophecy and keep our eyes open for the culmination of all things.
Our only protection against the abomination of desolation is to give our lives without reservation to Jesus, to love others as He loves them, and to worship Him in the way that His word teaches. The greatest commandment is simply to love God with all our heart, soul and strength. If we have that love, it will be natural for us to do everything to please and honor Him. In return, he will keep us safe through the desolation that will close the history of this land before he returns
