Study. Prophecy of the Abomination of Desolation and The Coming of Christ. Part II. By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translate.

Week 70 shares with us: "The Prophecy of the Abomination of Desolation and The Coming of Christ Part II.".

In this second part we will see how Jesus in Matthew 24 in its present time, through its links prophecy:

a. Last: 9.27 Daniel's prophecy and its fulfillment in 1 Maccabees 1.
b. The future "immediate" (within that generation - 40 years) Jesus puts a compliance time of Daniel 9.26 "26 After the sixty-two weeks it will take away the life of the prince chosen. This will run out of town and the sanctuary, for a future ruler destroy. The end will come like a flood, and the destruction will not cease [s] to end the war "[1].

According to the prophecy of Jesus, the apostle Matthew documented in Chapter XXIV of his gospel, one of the signs of the end [3] of the times it is the destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem after the Battle of Megiddo (Armageddon).
Faced with this prophecy is obvious that in order to comply, first the Temple would be rebuilt. The Jews already have everything you need for recreation, including utensils and red heifer for purification sacrifice. Hence, many believe that the end time is missing that meets reconstruction as prerequisite breaks loose.
However, for other Christian thinkers, the last Temple was already built, it is the believers themselves harboring the presence of the Holy Spirit of God, being "living tabernacles". For those who think this way, the destruction of the Temple is quite simply the persecution and killing of Christians. So John prophesies in Revelation:

** 13 And the dragon stood on the shore. Then I saw a beast rising from the sea, which had ten horns and seven heads. In each horn was a crown, and on each head a name blasphemous.
The seashore, many waters are literary figures mean many people / Nations.

  ** 2 The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like a bear and a mouth like a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.
A quote Daniel 7.1 to 6 in the order of appearance of the various beasts invested, this is because Daniel sees the vision forward and John from his mind the looks in the past.

  ** 3 One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the wound had been healed. The entire, fascinated world went after the beast 4 and worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast. They also worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast? Who can fight? "

** 5 A beast was allowed to speak with arrogance and blasphemies, and was given authority to continue forty and two months.

This modus operandi is consistent with the actions of Antiochus Epiphanes Misarca sent to Jerusalem:

29.Dos years later the king sent to the cities of Judah Misarca, who came to Jerusalem with a strong army.
He intentionally 30.Habló words of peace and when he had gained the confidence, fell suddenly upon the city, dealt a severe blow by killing many of the people of Israel.
It 31.Saqueó the city, burned and razed their homes and the surrounding walls.
32.Sus men made captive women and children and seized the cattle.
33.Después rebuilt the city of David with a great and strong wall, with mighty towers, and made it their Citadel.
34.Establecieron there were a sinful race of rebels, it became strong.
35.La provided arms and provisions, and placed in it the loot they had gathered the plunder of Jerusalem. It was a dangerous loop.
36.Se became ambush against the sanctuary, evil adversary to Israel all the time.
37.Derramaron innocent blood around the sanctuary and desecrated it.
38.Por them the inhabitants of Jerusalem fled; she became strange room strange to them which were born, because her children forsook her.
It 39.Quedó sanctuary desolate like a wilderness, her feasts turned into mourning, her sabbaths into ridicule, your honor into contempt.
40.A measure of his glory grew his dishonor, grief turned his greatness.
41. The king wrote to his whole kingdom that all should be one people
42.y leave each their peculiar customs. The Gentiles complied all the royal edict
43.y many Israelites accepted their worship, sacrificed to idols and profaned the sabbath.
44.También to Jerusalem and the cities of Judah the king did arrive, by messengers, the edict ordering the country to follow strange customs.
45.Debían remove the burnt sanctuary, sacrifices and libations; profaning Saturday and holidays;
46.mancillar the sanctuary and holy;
47.levantar altars and sacred precincts and idol temples; sacrificing pigs and unclean animals;
48.dejar their uncircumcised children; back their souls abominable with all manner of impurities and defilements, so to forget the law and would change all their habits. 1 Maccabees 1.29 - 49 Jerusalem Bible.

"The Gentiles complied all the royal edict" can be equated with 8a worship the beast all the inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life, the book of the Lamb that was slain from the creation world. That is, what will happen in the time of Revelation 8? Quite simply because the same thing happened in the time of 1 Maccabees 1.

** 6 He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. 7 will be also allowed to make war on the saints and to overcome them, and he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.

In Revelation, the Tyrant who arises organize the last and final persecution and killing of Christians in the same way at the time Antiochus persecuted and murdered Jews of Jerusalem:
50.The that he should act not according to the order of the king, moriría.1 1.50 Maccabees Jerusalem Bible.

** 8 A worship the beast all the inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life, the book of the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.

On this verse, I will return another time, because its treatment is complex and extensive

** 9 He who has ears, let him hear.
10 that is to be taken captive,
     into captivity he will go.
Who should die by the sword,
     the sword shall die.

This calls perseverance and faithfulness of the saints!
Revelation 13.1 - 10. New International Version (NIV)

Perseverance and faithfulness of the saints is that the sword would rather die than deny Christ. It seems a long way off, but is happening in Iraq and Syria: EI Militants have beheaded hundreds of Christians who refused to apostatize.

Week 70 is about to begin, the prosperity preachers continue to announce that "Big things come" in reference to economic and financial blessings. But what is great is the fulfillment of the last prophecies.
Are we ready?
