The continuation [Part 2] of the false Messiah coming into the world as the true Messiah and deceiving many, especially, the nation of Israel. If you haven’t read yet Part 1, click on the link below.
15 “Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place—let the reader understand— 16 then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains. 17 Whoever is on the housetop must not go down to get things out of his house. 18 And whoever is in the field must not turn back to get his cloak.
During The Seven Years Tribulation
Jesus was talking about the End Times to His disciples, pointing to them what Daniel said in Daniel 9:27 about “the abomination of desolation”, which is the indicator of when the Antichrist will start to take over the world. Jesus said that when you see the statue of the Antichrist in the third temple to run for your life.
The phrase “the holy place” is very significant because the Antichrist will proclaim to be God [2 Thessalonians 2:4] in a third temple yet to be built. Either the beast of Revelation through the Seven Years peace treaty allows the Jewish people to build their temple, or before the beast (the Antichrist) comes to the world stage will there be a third temple. Either way, the temple is a sign on how close we are to the End Times.
The phrase “those who are in Judea” refers to the Jewish people that are in Israel at the time of the events which will take place during the Great Tribulation. Read Revelation 12:6 which is in reference to “flee to the mountains.”
In Part 3, I will tackle Revelation Chapters 12 & 13 to go into more detail about the time frame for the Jews’ safety in the wilderness and the mark of the beast.
