Third Temple Complete
The third temple should be completed by now with the temple worship established. There will be a small amount of time between the completion of the temple and the abomination of desolation as some sacrifices and worship will occur.
The mid tribulation is a marker which can be used to identify the middle of the tribulation period. The abomination of desolation (discussed below) signifies the turning point in the tribulation and separated the first 3.5 years and the end 3.5 years of the 70th week of Daniel. Up until this point the antichrist was a man who followed satans instruction, however from the abomination of desolation onwards satan himself will indwell him directly. He will also gain satanic supernatural powers to fool the world and to reign in the nations.
Do NOT take the mark of the beast! This is likely the point when the antichrist will likely mandate the taking of the mark of the beast on either your right hand or forehead. If you take it, you have allied yourself with the devil himself and you are guaranteed be going to hell either when Jesus returns or you die – which may be soon considering the insane (world-ending) judgements that are left. Not to mention that the first bowl says that all those with the mark will get painful sores all over their body. You may not be able to buy anything, but if you commit yourself to Jesus and live for Him, but you will be living with Him for eternity in heaven. God is the provider of all your needs.
You cannot be tricked into getting the mark of the beast because it will be equivalent to signing your soul to the devil and you will be pledging allegiance to the antichrist over everything else, including God. If anyone takes the mark, they will be doing it willingly and those who refuse will be beheaded. Something else to point out is that this mark will be the number of the antichrist and not a personal identification number such as your bank account number. This number will be related to him and will have the ciphered number 666 hidden within in. The mark will likely allow free ‘purchases’ for all those who have this mark as part of his socialist agenda.
The reason why taking the mark of the beast is irreversible could be that it alters your DNA permanently thus removing you from the scope of being human. Jesus died on the cross ONLY for the sins of humanity and since their DNA will be changed, His death won’t cover the people who take the mark – even if they try to remove the mark and repent. This is just a theory but there have recently been a lot of articles out lately about vaccines which have the ability to alter DNA and RNA in a person.
Abomination of Desolation
In the bible, the abomination of desolation is the act of the antichrist sitting on the throne in the recently rebuilt temple and declares himself as God. When this act is witnessed (on television worldwide) Jews and any other Christians in the area should flee from Israel immediately – not even going into their homes to grab items. This starts the second half of the tribulation where those without the mark of the beast are hunted and beheaded and Jews are persecuted, causing 2/3 of them to eventually perish. The antichrist (an incarnation of Satan) is given satanic powers to show signs such as raining fire from heaven. (See Revelation 13)
The Jews Second Exodus
The Jews will flee from Israel and be hunted and killed by the antichrist for their faith in the remainder of the tribulation. They will flee into the desert – to Petra, for 3.5 years where they will be protected and fed by God.
“Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.” Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes.”
“So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not” (let the reader understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down into the house, nor enter to take anything out of his house. And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! And pray that your flight may not be in winter. For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be.” But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her.”
“But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”
Matthew 24:15 and Mark 13:14 comment “Let the reader understand”. If you read this you should look into the meaning of the “Abomination of Desolation” in the first temple, but for simplicity I’ve added a quick description below:
History of the Abomination of Desolation
In 167 B.C. a Greek ruler Antiochus Epiphanies set up an altar to Zeus over the altar of burnt offerings in the Jewish temple in Jerusalem. He also sacrificed a pig on the altar in the holiest Temple in Jerusalem. This event is known as the abomination of desolation. However the same thing will occur again, this time by the antichrist, but likely even worse.
