Warning Signs of Christ's Second Coming


Grim Reaper 6

Recommended Posts

So, according to the Bible, the Abomination of Desolation occurs in a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.  The next most important aspect of this prophecy has two parts.

1.  Animal sacrifice is occurring when the desecration occurs.

2.  It is the Antichrist who defiles the Temple.

I'm going to take 5 before I come back and finish this presentation, because I have to prepare several scriptures that prove my points above, and that means I have to read the Bible and refresh my memory on it......since I figured this out almost 20 years ago.  It has been a while since I have studied the Bible with any degree of rigor.

So, first necessary and undeniable point of the Abomination is that it occurs within the inner sanctum of the JEWISH TEMPLE in Jerusalem.  

Not the Haredi Temple in Lakewood? 

Because that's something I want to see...

To continue, my first witness, of the necessary two or three witnesses to establish Biblical Truth is the Prophet Daniel.

Remember my claims - I claimed that the Abomination of Desolation occurs in Jerusalem, in the Jewish Temple, where the Holy of Holies exists, and that is the only place in the Bible that fits the description, that animals sacrifices are made daily, and that the Temple is defiled by the Antichrist himself.

My first witness is Daniel, my second witness is Jesus, and my third and/or fourth witnesses are the Apostle Paul, and other unnamed New Testament Bible writers.  

Daniel 11 - "So he shall return and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant. 31 And [n]forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation. "

Matthew 24 - "Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”

"“Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the [c]elect’s sake those days will be shortened."

There are the testimonies of my first two witnesses, I shall conclude with witnesses from the Epistles - or in other words, non-gospel Bible books written in the centuries after Jesus, to conclude my presentation.

I find it humorous that the article/info is named    WARNING signs of Christ’s Second Coming. :P     Isn’t the forever establishment of God’s kingdom on Earth supposed to be good news…for a few?

Third Witness - The Apostle Paul.

2 Thessalonians 2

"Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of [a]Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of [b]sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits [c]as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God."

Do you see it now?  Christ's Second Coming does not occur unless the man of sin, or son of perdition is revealed.  So, who is the son of perdition?  It is the Antichrist and he defiles the Temple of God in Jerusalem by going into the Holy Place himself.

Fourth Witness - The Revelation chapter 13 - The Beast from the Earth aka - The Antichrist

"Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives [f]those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has [g]the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666."

That concludes my presentation, and my Biblical proof that it requires three things for the End of the World according to the Bible.

1.  A Jewish Temple in Jerusalem with the Holy Place.

2.  Animal sacrifice occurs daily as in former times.

3.  It is the Anti-Christ who defiles the temple.

AFTER that......then Jesus returns to kill and judge everyone.

I rest my case.  I hope you have enjoyed this presentation and now understand why I am confident in saying that we are NOT currently in End Times.  Peace be with all readers.

Directly from the Koine. Footnotes are the opinions of my Quaker tutor and myself.

"Forces of his* will come and profane the Citadel-Sanctuary; they will abolish the perpetual sacrifice* and install the appalling abomination* there. 

*Antiochus Epiphanes 

*The banning of Hebrew religious practices 

*A statue of Zeus

True, no man knows the day or the hour, according to Jesus.  But that same Jesus said we could know the season.

Matthew 25:13 =  “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour [b]in which the Son of Man is coming."

Matthew 24 - The Parable of the Fig Tree shows that people may know the season these things occur.  That's Bible talk for about the time.

"32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near."

In that verse, also, the writer has Jesus saying that it would all come to pass within the present generation at the time. Oopsie.

Yes.  For Christians, and some of the Jehovah witnesses (144,000) to be exact, that is true.  After the world is destroyed, only the worthy get to inhabit the New Heavens and the New Earth where there are no longer any oceans.  They will get bliss and longevity, while the rest of burn in the lake of fire where the Beast and the False prophet are.  

Revelation 16:13 - And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Revelations 20:10 - The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

Matthew 25 - “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the [c]holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 

Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:

It's too bad Ronnie James Dio is no longer with us, I feel he could crush a heavy rock number on the topic of Revelations.

day will turn to night, night will turn to day - stars won't give their light and the sun refused to shine

moon will turn to blood, as the rocks begin to fall

run and hide with no where to go the powers of the heavens are shakin

loose the dragon and the little lamb hail are the burning rocks that fall and you are done

Or something along those lines lol.

I welcome a critique and a "yay or nay" on my presentation.....especially from @Piney@eight bits, @Liquid Gardens, @cormac mac airt, @Sherapy.

Thank you. 

I think you did an excellent job in general so no real complaints there. The problem for me though, as mentioned by myself, Hammer and others is that the text has Jesus say all this will happen soon, within the current generation, and yet religiously and historically these events occurring on time are a complete and total failure. So much so that just like Jehovah’s Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventist’s and other groups “predictions” the timeframe for these events keeps moving indiscriminately forward, to the point of ridiculousness. As written Revelation failed and there is nothing reliable for a literalist to depend on in that regard going forward.

Jesus Speaks about the Future

Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.? does that mean the earth will be destroyed and the heaven above the earth will be destroyed. I believe Jesus will return  before the big atomic  war and take us farther way in another Heaven

Jehovah’s Witnesses believe after death we will wake up when Jesus returns.

Right. I’m just pointing out that many Evangelicals and other Christian varieties, deny these facts and accept that all the prophecies of the Bible regarding End Times and the Revelation are yet to occur at a future date.  They cannot accept that the prophecies were fulfilled in 70 A.D. because that would mean that their faith is false, and they would have nothing left to believe in.

A commonly used, and badly distorted/misunderstood passage that is often used by these folks is that God runs on different time than we do, so a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like a day.

 Jesus Speaks about the Future

 

Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.

The day is coming when you will see what Daniel the prophet spoke about—the sacrilegious object that causes desecration:)

Which itself is a comparative statement and not meant as a 1:1 equivalency. Not that that matters as there’s no way to misinterpret “tachus” as anything other than soon, swiftly or immediately. One has to lie to oneself and others otherwise.
