When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 15 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:16 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:17 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 18 Matthew 24:15-18
For any Christian that has been following world events as foretold by Daniel, Christ, John the Revelator and many other apostles like Paul, then by no means we understand the end is near…nearer than it were yesterday and much nearer than when the Advent Movement started.
The question is, is it time to flea to the mountains?
The point being made by Christ is that whatever it was for us to expect will start from the cities and populous towns. In America recently, a Christian couple were forced to pay a gay couple for refusing to bake a gay themed wedding cake.
Governors across America states are asking clergy and clerks to issue wedding certificates to gay couples or resign. In another instance, a Governor is considering deleting the words husband and wife and simply have it as couple in consideration of gay couples married.
Is this how the end begins?
Christ admonished that when you see the abomination of desolation as spoken of by Daniel start running.
Among many other things written by Daniel is the famous Daniel 7:25
“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. Daniel 7:25
Just a recap, we know the laws have changed with the removal of the second commandment that forbids idolatry and the split of the tenth into two to keep the numbers.
Times have changed from sunset to sunset day counts to midnight.
The Pope is working hard to spear head the new world order with his NEVER before address to the US Congress and a subsequent address to the UN later this year. We expect during the later, an Encyclical to be released to the billions of the catholics around the world.
This Pope has met literally every other religious leader, from Muslims and praying in Mosques, to the Waldensians (whom the church persecuted), to prominent protestant leaders even the likes of Don Moen.
Maybe it is time to start taking the words of Christ quite literally.
