The LAST DAYS ARE HERE Part 6

 

abomination, born again, Nebuchadnezzar, flag, crosses, pledge, 501(c)3

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.  And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!  But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.  Matthew 24:15-21

These are some of the most perplexing verses in the New Testament, and all sorts of ideas have been offered about the abomination that made Jerusalem desolate.  The answer is in plain view however as the Lord Jesus Christ stated, “whoso readeth, let him understand.”  So if you want to know about the abomination, keep on reading your Bible, and at the right time with the right background, the Lord will fill you in.  You know, some things we don’t get right away because we are not able to handle it, or in order to understand, we might have to accumulate some information in the ol’ cranium first.   Therefore, if you don’t want to keep on reading, or you don’t give a hoot, just be a good little parrot and chirp the lines you’ve been trained to tweet.  Or be like the people who mindlessly utter they are born again sheep, but can’t even bah bah bah what born again means, having never been born again, or they’re still baby Christians sucking on their bah-bahs.

Of course, it is obvious in these verses the Lord didn’t tell us specifically what the abomination is, and for good reason; but he revealed it in a spiritual way that would be insightful century after century as abominations can be veiled in different ways throughout time.  There is a helpful key, though, in the Book of Daniel.

Daniel wrote about the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar made of himself and commanded everyone to worship when its anthem was played by the band. Interestingly the statue of Nebuchadnezzar was not a physical likeness of him, but something that represented him - an image.  And an image of a person or a thing can be, for example, a coat of arms, a geometric pattern, an initial, a mark, a name, a number, or anything one chooses.   An image can also be a flag that represents a person, an idea, or a country; but when revered and treated with great respect, it becomes an idol

Here are some examples of abominable things that are standing in the places where they ought not to stand such as church buildings and synagogues, and Christian homes.  Roll them around in your mind and decide for yourself what is an abomination or not.  

For starters…

How about hucksters who have turned the ministry of God into an abominable business, like the merchants did when the Lord Jesus Christ drove them out of the temple?  And how about those who pledge their allegiance to flags standing in the sanctuary; or, the clergy who receive a paycheck for their hire; or, statues which are kneeled and petitioned to in prayer; or, steeples, known to the ancient Egyptians as obelisks, the image of the sun god; or, even the cross, Rome’s image of the sun god, which our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified upon.  

Now you’re going to say, “You’ve gone too far!  It was bad enough you attacked our flags but now the cross?”  Didn’t you ever think about it?  If your son was killed by a machete, or a gun, or an icepick, would you reverence those instruments of murder?  I think not; but the preaching of the cross, on the other hand, declares the crucifixion of Christ, and more importantly of his resurrection from the dead.  

So then, why revere, worship, and use the cross and stand it where it ought not to stand in the first place?  And why even wear a cross on a chain around your neck or dangle them from your ear lobes as ornaments?

Other abominations standing where they ought not to stand are sodomite ministers, sodomite marriages, abortion supporters, and the corporate thieves that pick the pockets of the congregation under the camouflage of 501(c)3 non-profit organizations.  Whoso readeth let him understand.  Amen

And so, until we meet again… Remember, God love you.  Read your Bible.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen
