The Jerusalem Connection (The time-line to the Second Coming), Daniel 9: 27.
He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ (literal translation) he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.” (Daniel 9:27)
“The final part of Dan. 9: 27 envisages a climactic abomination that causes the devastating final judgment decreed for the Antichrist (the one who makes desolate).”
And Daniel 10: 1-12: 13, Daniel’s Vision of the Final Conflict… “Conflicts on earth reflect conflicts in the heavens, and this will continue to the end, when God will ultimately triumph.” (ESV Study Bible, note)
We are just beginning to see this out-growth with Gentile Apostasy, which will surely end with great evil, but also the very Second Coming of Christ, who is Himself The Victor! As I have said many times before, I personally don’t see how humanity survives the 21st century?
*God might put His finger in the dike? But sooner or later HE will fulfill HIS Prophetic Plan, and here Modern and literal Israel (National Israel) will be central! (Zech. 13: 8-9 ; chap. 14) ~ Fr. R.
