    Remember a day for a year. 31 ad, Christ dies, 1290 years later the last Christians lost all hold on Jerusalem to Sarrasins. Abomination of DESOLATE- No Creator God in the city of His people any more. That's an abomination to God. The only reason a temple hasn't been built is due to the Dome of the Rock being in the way. People THINK it'll be rebuilt but the temple in Rev is your body .
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    Behold verse 11 ! This is the second prophet to come who will set up the Temple a.k.a. the Abomination of Desolation. He is false however God will use him to fulfill all things. ELIJAH COMES FIRST ! SHALOM ISRAEL ZION AMEN !
