Saudi grown wild animals have been butchering Shia Muslims, killing innocent children and women in the name of Islam.Wahabism patronizes Zionism. They are sister ideologies. One has control over petroleum and the other has control over banking. One has control over the place holiest for Muslims andthe other hascontrol overthe place equally holy for Muslims, Christians and Jews. One is loaded with throat cutting and flesh eating cannibal Jihadists, the other is loaded with thermal, chemical and atomic bombs. Israel’s role in End Times beginsDaniel 11:28 The king of the North will return to his own country with great wealth, but his heart will be set against the holy covenant. He will take action against it and then return to his own country. Daniel 11:27 The two kings, with their hearts bent on evil, will sit at the same table and lie to each other, but to no avail, because an end will still come at the appointed time. After the ‘South’ (Sunni) attack the ‘North’ (Shiite), in verses 25-26 (previous page), they get defeated, but afterwards; the two “sit at the same table and lie to each other”. Obviously, that means “peace talks”. Yet, it must have sounded pretty strange to Daniel because, in ancient times, kings would not fight a bloody battle and then stop to talk. They would usually kill or capture the opposing king and take their territory. It may have sounded strange to Daniel but it sounds perfectly normal to us because it was meant for our generation, not his. Syria crisis: Geneva peace talks end in recriminationsBBC – January 31, 2014Quotes: The Syrian government and opposition have traded insults after a week-long peace conference in Geneva ended with no firm agreement. Though the gap between the two sides was "wide", they had becomeused to sitting in the same room.Excluded Iran Says Its Role at Talks on Syria Will Be Missed New York Times – January 21, 2014 The recent talks in Geneva, in Jan-2014, regarding the Syrian War, were not the correct talks for a couple of reasons: 1. they were out of order. 2. Iran, the leader of the North, wasn’t even invited. However, the talks may have served a purpose because they got the two sides “used to sitting in the same room”. Nevertheless, the correct peace talks will happen after the war in verse 25, which should be identifiable, and Iran will be a major part.
The ‘holy covenant’ is Israel’s possession of Jerusalem and Palestine, which Iran hates. This verse is equally characteristic of ‘modern times’ because: when has a ‘king’ ever defended against an attack from one party but been more angry at another? Yet, that sounds exactly like Iran, concerning Israel, because they regularly group Saudi Arabia and Wahabism with Israel or the West, as shown in this article. It’s particularly cringing to see them refer to the Temple Mount because that’s where the ‘abomination’ will be ‘set up’ in verse 31. In other words, they will try to rally everyone against Israel’s possession of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, which is already happening. Reports suggest that the Palestinians are winning the ‘propaganda war’, (even in the Western media). Images of Gaza war shift perception of IsraelAl Monitor [free media USA] – July 18, 2014Quote: The fact remains that this is one of the rare instances of the Western media showing a darker side of Israelis that few have ever seen. War is ugly and criminal by its nature, and the current one in Gaza is completely one-sided. Hamas: Qassam Brigades yet to use full forceDaily Star [Lebanon] – July 22, 2014Quote: Calling for solidarity with Gaza … Popular marches rallied from mosques in the city of Sidon [Lebanon] to a sit-in held at the southern city’s Martyrs' Square.The protesters lifted Palestinian and Hamas flagsand cut-outs of Qassam Brigades rockets. The ‘abomination’ is one of God’s little ‘mysteries’. Jesus identified it as the ‘last sign’ before the rapture but the Bible never says exactly ‘what’ it is. That’s because it doesn’t matter. I mean: if you go to the Book of Daniel, like Jesus said, all the clues point to ‘when’ it is, not ‘what’ it is. Apparently, that’s what God wants us to know. For example, three chapters in the Book of Daniel contain specific milestones surrounding the abomination that, when put together, form a timeline that matches Revelation. More specifically, Daniel contains references to the 1290, 1335, and 2300-days after the abomination, not to mention the 70th Seven, in which the abomination lands in the ‘middle’. Revelation compliments Daniel because it contains many events that take place during ‘42-months’ or ‘1260-days’, thus matching the ‘last half’ of the 70th Seven. In other words, the verses between the ‘abomination’ and ‘end’ in Daniel 11 match the chapters between the ‘6th Seal’ and ‘Armageddon’, in Revelation. Everything concerning the timeline makes perfect sense when Daniel 11 and the Seals are correctly interpreted but the Bible gives no indication of exactly ‘what’ the abomination is. That’s because Jesus was giving clues to the ‘timing’ of the rapture, not the specific object that is set up, which is still secret. What about a guess? Since there are so many conspiracy theories about the abomination, I am compelled to offer a logical answer based on Daniel 11 and current events. Basically, an ‘abomination’ is something ‘hated by God’. It has to be something small enough that can be ‘set up’ on the ‘Temple Mount’ during an ‘armed uprising’. Yet, size is not important in this case because it will be the symbolism of the object that God will hate. So what could be so small but still represent something so ‘hated by God’? Since we know that it occurs on the Temple Mount, it probably involves Israel’s prophecy from God. Well, God’s prophecy to Jeremiah was that Israel would become one nation, in land of their forefathers, which happened in 1948. Jerusalem was united in the 1967 war that lasted just 6 days, much like creation, so it stands to reason that God had a hand in that too. One of Hamas’ primary demands is that East Jerusalem be returned to the Palestinians but Israel says that will never happen because Jerusalem is their eternal capital. Since the Temple Mount is located in East Jerusalem, it stands to reason that the ‘abomination’ could be a simple ‘flag’, representing the ‘conquest’ of that area, which would be ‘hated’ by God. To illustrate how plausible the above theory is, consider the fact that a group in Lebanon spontaneously raised ‘flags’, duringa ‘sit-in’ for solidarity with Gaza. If future protests become armed in the West Bank and people start raising flags, that might be all it takes. Conclusion: Even though the ones ‘setting it up’ will be unaware of the significance, it will still be an ‘abomination’ to God. The subsequent earthquake, during the 6th Seal and rapture, will ‘cause the desolation’. Since terrorist attacks are usually a ‘surprise’ and the culprits won’t even know what they’re doing, the ‘rapture’ will come as a surprise also, just as the Bible says. (Yet, those who are watching the signs in Daniel 11 won’t be in the dark.) Paul said, “But you, brothers, are not in darkness that this day should surprise you like a thief.”(1 Thess. 5:4) The “70th Seven”(possible rapture timing)HomeIntro/ Complete TimelinesMatthew 24 Explained(must match Revelation)The Seals Explained(Revelation’s timeline revealed)Other select pages:Daniel 11 Explained(condensed ‘one page’ commentary)Partial timeline showing ‘abomination’click to enlarge *Expect the hate to increase dramatically and that’s the fuel needed to spark the ‘uprising’ on the Temple Mount that results in the ‘abomination’. It may be closer than you think. (see news below) Iran, Hezbollah break with Assad to support HamasAl Monitor [Independent] – July 25, 2014The current war in Gaza has witnessed renewed contact between Hamas on the one hand, and Iran and Hezbollah on the other, following two years of a chill in relations.A political official in Hamas confirmed to Al-Monitor that KhaledMeshaal, head of Hamas’ politburo, has recently received phone calls from TehranAnother angle may help to improve the relations between Hamas and the axis of Iran and Hezbollah, which is Hamas’ tense relations with Egypt during the war.The Israeli aggression on Gaza might have the counterproductive effect, as far as Israel is concerned, of restoring the broken ties between Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas. All three, despite the objections from Damascus, sense an opportunity to seize the regional circumstances and renew alliances. According to a Palestinian official based in Lebanon that has taken part in talks to revive ties between Hamas and Hezbollah, this also comes amid the flirtation between Qatar and Iran that may expedite the restoration of an alliance with Hamas, albeit still plagued by a number of problems. This fits into Daniel 11 because Hamas is improving ties to Iran (the North), rather than Egypt. In fact, Egypt encouraged Hamas to sign a ‘seize fire’ but Iran respected their resilience. *Notice that Qatar was talking to Iran. Recall that Qatar backs the Muslim Brotherhood, who Saudi Arabia and Egypt hate. (vs. 25)Ayatollah Khamenei calls for armed struggle in West BankAl Monitor [Independent USA] – July 24, 2014Quote: Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has called for a referendum between Israelis and Palestinians to decide the fate of the government that rules over them. Until such a referendum takes place, he said, the West Bank should be armed like Gaza. “The Zionist regime is a regime that from its illegitimate birth was built on overt violence, and they don’t deny it. It’s built on an iron fist. They say it everywhere; they take pride in it - this is their policy. From 1948, when this fraudulent regime came into existence, for 66 years, the policy of the Zionist regime is this. Of course, before this regime was officially recognized and was imposed on the region by the colonialists, the Zionists committed many crimes in Palestine."During these 66 years, as a government and a political system, they did whatever they wanted to do. Any violence that was contained in their mind, that one government can do toward a people, they did."If God willing, it is eradicated, even better, but while this fraudulent regime is there and not eradicated, what’s the cure? The cure is a strong and armed resistance against this regime. In confronting the Zionist regime, strength needs to be shown from the direction of the Palestinians. Evidence in the News:'Day of Rage' Protests Erupt in Jerusalem and the West BankNBC News [USA] – July 25, 2014Quote: Confrontations between Palestinians and police erupted in East Jerusalem's Wadi al-Joz neighborhood after Friday prayersduring a protest to show solidarity with people in the Gaza Strip.It was the first time in almost a decade that the Palestinian Authority gave permission for such a march, making a dramatic shift in relations between President Mahmoud Abbas's government and Israel.The entrance to the Temple Mount and al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem -- which have been flash points in the past -- were being restricted to women, and men aged 50 and over.Israel Radio reported that the demonstrations appeared to be the largest since the end of a 2000-2005 Palestinian uprising, known as the Second Intifada.Violence flared at Kalandiya checkpoint north of Jerusalem as Israeli security forces clashed with demonstrators trying to march to Jerusalem.Something to think about: I find it intriguing that the Supreme Leader mentioned Israel’s age of 66 years (twice). Of course, I discovered, long ago, that the ‘70th Seven’ or ‘Daniel’s final week’ possibly started with the Arab Spring of 2011. (see ‘70th Seven’ or ‘Blood moons’) Among other things, the “start” was very near the 63rd anniversary of Israel, which meant that Israel would be about “70” at the “end” of the 70th Seven. Thus, by default, that put the “middle” (when the abomination is ‘set up’) in the Fall of 2014 (when Israel will turn 66 years - 6 months). Incidentally, the ‘time’ in verse 24 will be up in the same month. I don’t like to speculate but the number in the Bible has to commemorate something. We’ll have to see if something happens around that time. I probably wouldn’t have said anything but the Supreme Leader of Iran inadvertently called attention to it. (I just notice things.)Iran and Hamas:Exposing Post-Trib. Deceptions(updated 8-31-2014)His armed forces will rise up … We saw a little taste of what can happen in the short period of time when Hamas decided to fire rockets into Israel, in July 2014. With the right motivations, that scenario could repeat itself and get more intense, exactly what is necessary to cause an ‘armed uprising’ on the Temple Mount. In fact, there have been two ‘armed uprisings’ in recent history (called intifadas), from 1987-1993 and 2000-2005. Many thought the events in July would turn into an intifada but they still could if tempers flare again. Of course, Iran was in favor of arming the protesters in the West Bank. The Ayatollah made a speech on al-Quds Day, which may have sparked protests in the West Bank, last time, but they were not armed. (below) As indicated in Daniel 11, the hatred toward Israel will be even greater next time so anything is possible. So, ‘what’ is the abomination? (Or should I say ‘when’?)
