The Abomination of Desolation (AOD)

The Abomination that maketh desolate is set to occur at or close to the mid-point of Daniel’s 70th Week (Daniel 11:31 and Daniel 12:11). It signifies the beginning of a 42-month (3 ½ year) period of Great Tribulation, described by Messiah Yeshua (Mathew 24:15-21):

Revelation 12 is also said to be a “mid-tribulation” sign or perhaps we should call it a sign in the midst of Daniel’s last (70th) Week (i.e. occurring at the outset of the Great Tribulation):
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
2017-Sign

September 22-23, 2017: Constellation of Leo (9) + Mercury, Venus, and Mars (3) = “crown of 12 stars”

 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Variables:

  • Revelation 12 (1-6) is a mid-70th Week sign
  • Revelation 12:1-2 is a celestial sign that is set to occur on September 23, 2017

Outcomes:

  • September 23, 2017 is at or very near the mid-point of Daniel’s 70th Week, which marks the start of the period of Great Tribulation
  • The 7-year period of the 70th Week starts 3½ years prior to this mid-point → i.e. Passover 2014!

Traditionally, it has been agreed upon that the prototypical Abomination of Desolation occurred when the Seleucid King Antiochus Epiphanes desecrated the Temple by placing a statue of Zeus inside it and, furthermore, sacrificing a pig on the graven altar. This happened in 167 BCE (on the 25th December). The cleansing and rededication of the temple was not until Hanukkah of 164 BCE.

Another foreshadowing of the abomination of desolation could also be the 70 AD sacking of Jerusalem by the Roman emperor Titus Vespasian, which saw the 2nd temple desecrated (a statue of Zeus placed in or near it, although there was no sacrifice of an unclean animal on the altar) and destroyed it. It was this latter event that saw the last of the “rebellious” Jews flee to Masada as their final stronghold.

To have a repeat abomination of desolation occur would suggest that we need a temple, or at the very least a tabernacle.
