The Desolator is the Abomination of Desolation

abomination of desolationThe Abomination of Desolation:

But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, [1] spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not[2], (let him that readeth understand,) [3] then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: (Mar 13:14 KJV)

Contrary to most translations, the “abomination of desolation” in Daniel 11:31 is different than the “abomination of desolation” in Daniel 12:11. They are spelled differently in Hebrew:

BHT Daniel 11:31 haššiqqûc müšômëm
BHT Daniel 12:11 šiqqûc šömëm

In the Septuagint, Daniel 11:31 is a disgusting idol that causes God to desert the Temple, in Daniel 12:11 the Antichrist himself is disgusting to God desolate of God’s presence and his end is desolation (Dan. 9:27). Therefore, the image to the Beast the nations “set up” (05414 נָתַן nathan) putting their economies under his central control is also an abomination causing desolation. All who accept his mark will be eternally desolated by the Wrath of God (Rev. 13:14-17; 14:9-11).[2]

The betrayer Judas is called “the son of destruction” (ὁ υἱὸς τῆς ἀπωλείας Jn. 17:12) as is the “Man of Sin” False Christ (2Th. 2:3) betraying Christianity adopting the “scientific atheism” of the fallen angels who appear on earth claiming to be extraterrestrials (Rev. 12:7-9). “Son of” is Hebrew idiom for someone who embodies the characteristics of a class to which they belong (Rev. 13:8; 17:8; 20:10).

Only in Daniel 12:11 (Septuagint) does the precise Greek phrase our LORD used appear:

LXT Daniel 11:31 βδέλυγμα ἐρημώσεως
LXT Daniel 12:11 τὸ βδέλυγμα τῆς ἐρημώσεως

BYZ Mark 13:14 τὸ βδέλυγμα τῆς ἐρημώσεως
BYZ Matthew 24:15 τὸ βδέλυγμα τῆς ἐρημώσεως

“Let him that readeth understand”. Our Lord Jesus asked God open the reader’s understanding that “an abomination of desolation” (Dan. 11:31) not be confused with “THE Abomination of desolation” in Daniel 12:11.

The first a detestable idol (haššiqqûc müšômëm) causing desolation (Jer. 44:22), the second a detestable Desolator (šiqqûc šömëm) in a state of desolation (Dan. 9:27). All who accept the Mark of the image of the Beast (the AI network controlling the global economy) will be desolated by God, and in the end the Desolator himself desolated at Armageddon (Dan. 9:27; Rev. 14:9-11; 19:20).

The Anglo-American two horned beast (formerly Christian liberty loving free market economies) now support the tyranny of the Beast and centrally planned markets. Their black operations with fallen angel technology enable the Beast rain fire down upon his enemies from a “flying wing” powered by abominable Satanic energy (Dan. 8:10-11, 23-24; 11:36-39. Rev. 13:11-17):

And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator (šömëm).” (Dan. 9:27 ESV)

“on the wings of abomination he comes desolating.” עַל כָּנָף can, without ingenuity, be rendered in no other way than on wings. שִׁקּוּצִים signifies not acts of abomination, but objects of abomination… But from such passages as Deut. 32:11, Ex. 19:4, and Ps. 18:11, we perceive the sense in which wings are attributed to the שִׁקּוּצִים, the idolatrous objects. In the first of these passages (Deut. 32:11), wings, the wings of an eagle, are attributed to God, because He is the power which raises up Israel, and lifting it up, and carrying it throughout its history, guides it over the earth. In P. 18 wings are attributed to the wind, because the wind is contemplated as the power which carries out the will of God throughout the kingdom of nature. “Thus in this passage wings are attributed to the שִׁקּוּצִים, idol-objects, and to idolatry with its abominations, because that shall be the power which lifts upwards the destroyer and desolater, carries him, and moves with him over the earth to lay waste” (Klief[othm T.]) -Keil, C.

The “Desolate One” aka the “Son of Destruction” is the Judas False Christ “man if sin”. At 1,260 days (Dan. 9:27; 12:7. 2Th. 2:3-4. Rev. 13:5). Chancellor Adonikam begins ruling as Emperor of the Babylonian Roman Beast (Rev. 13:1-2) boasting he is the “Seed of Satan” (Gen. 3:15) “Son of Destruction” Antichrist (Rev. 13:5 6. Dan. 7:8, 25; 9:27; 11:36-39).

Just as God permitted the magicians deceive Pharaoh he could resist God (Exod. 7:11-13) so God stops restraining spiritism (2Th. 2:7-12) and it inwardly induces the strong delusion God and His angels can be defeated (Rev. 16:13-14, 16). Just as spiritism caused Pharaoh to harden his own heart, so those who dwell on the earth will believe they can defeat God at Armageddon. The temporary sacrifice of a few angels cements that delusion:

It grew so big it reached the army of heaven, and it brought about the fall of some of the army and some of the stars to the ground, where it trampled them. (Dan. 8:10 NET)

② someth. that is totally defiling, abomination, pollutant the phrase τὸ β. τῆς ἐρημώσεως appears to refer to someth. that is abhorred because it defiles a sacred place and causes it to be left desolate Mt 24:15; Mk 13:14 (τὸ β. ἑστηκότα is a ‘constructio ad sensum’, as Appian, Bell.

So detestable the person or place is desolate of God’s presence and results in desolation by God (Ezek. 8:5-6, 17-18).

[2]
standing where it ought not, the church being the Temple of God in the New Testament
Jesus predicted the Temple would be destroyed and never hinting that state of desolation would be reversed in the end time (Mk. 13:1-4. Mt. 24:1-3). Pharisee Paul (Acts 23:6) would call the literal temple the dwelling (naos) of God, the apostle Paul never does so (1 Cor. 3:16-17; 6:19; 2 Cor. 6:16; Eph. 2:21).
In the New Testament Christians are Temple priests (1 Pet. 2:5). We offer up “the Daily Sacrifice”::

you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. (1 Pet. 2:5) NKJ

We do this taking up Christ’s cross daily (Lk. 9:23) therefore our sacrifice and service are continual:

Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. (Heb. 13:15) NKJ

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. (Rom. 12:1) NKJ

The “Man of Sin” morphs stands up as the Beast “son of Destruction” at 1,260 days. Thirty days later the AI network the world built in his image to manage their economies is “set up”:

“And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up (05414 נָתַן nathan), there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. (Dan. 12:11 NKJ)

And he deceives 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. (Rev. 13:14 NKJ)

Jesus inserted the parenthetical (“let him that readeth [Daniel] understand”). Readers in the End Time are to critically consider why Daniel himself didn’t understand his own prophecy. The most likely reason is words gained new meaning he was unaware of.

Daniel knew all about “holy” (06944 קֹדֶשׁ qodesh) “people” (05971 עַם `am), the “Daily” (08548 תָּמִיד tamiyd), the “abomination” (08251 שִׁקּוּץ shiqquwts) of “Desolation” (08074 שָׁמֵם shamem) are things he fully understood. Yet Daniel says: ” Although I heard, I did not understand” (Dan. 12:8):

7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.
8 Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, “My lord, what shall be the end of these things?”
9 And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

Why are they sealed until the end? Christianity introduced something unknown to Daniel, that gave the words in his prophecy different application. The church was now the Temple of God, believers in Christ its priests. The Daily Sacrifice their taking up the cross of Christ Daily. Therefore, the abomination of desolation Daniel saw rising up in the church, was unlike what he saw Antiochus erect (Dan. 11:31) in the Temple. Christ is viewing events from the 1st century to the end time, and therefore cautions readers in the future understand the new reality brought about by the New Covenant.

As Christ fulfilled the law the “continual” [08548 תָּמִיד tamiyd] sacrifice (ἡ θυσία δι παντoς, LXX) is now a function of Christ’s ministry. Confirming this, the apostles apply Old Testament Temple imagery to the Church, calling it “the Temple of God” (1 Cor. 3:16-17; 6:19; 2 Cor. 6:16; 2 Thess. 2:4; Eph. 2:21). Its members Temple priests (1 Pet. 2:5). We offer up “the Daily Sacrifice”::

you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. (1 Pet. 2:5) NKJ

As we take up Christ’s cross daily (Lk. 9:23) our sacrifice and service are continual:

Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. (Heb. 13:15) NKJ

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. (Rom. 12:1) NKJ

We have the “interpretive keys” (the New Covenant) to understand Daniel’s Prophecy, that he did not. Events unsealed the words just as the angel said.
