We know the predictions of Daniel and Yeshua have been partially fulfilled, but the eleventh chapter of Daniel says the king of the north will take up with those who betray the holy covenant and then he will march into the sanctuary and desecrate it and the citadel. He will set up the obscene sacrifice in place of the daily sacrifice. That happened with Antiochus IV Epiphanies but Yeshua said to be ready to run for it when you see the monster of desecration set up in the sanctuary as the prophet Daniel described. If this is not a future event, he would have had to be talking about the Dome of The Rock, which has caused not only Jews, but Christians too, untold misery. If it is a future event, and we don’t know that it is, the temple will be rebuilt soon. Stay alert! Watch and pray. Remember we are looking at birth pangs, not death throes.
The themes of the book of Revelation encourage us because
God is in control. We have access to fearless confidence
We are confident of our Saviors sure return, and wait patiently, watching diligently
We can be sure no one who wants to come to God will be left out.
