that Causes Desolation
The Plan of Salvation - the real story - begin here
The Abomination of Desolation:
Different Translations: The Abomination of Desolation is translated in different Bibles also as "the abomination that causes desolation", "the desolating sacrilege", "the desolating abomination", "the horrible abomination", "the abominable desolation", "the abomination that makes desolate", "the sacrilegious image that causes desecration standing in the Holy Place", "the appalling sacrilege (the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate)", "people would put something very bad in the temple", "the idol of the invader set up in the Temple", "the abominable Idol of the devastator", "the abominable and destructive thing standing on holy ground", "the appalling abomination"...
This Abomination refers to the abolition of the Eternal Sacrifice of the True Messiah and Passover Lamb by erecting an "image" of the false messiah in the Temple of YHVH... Yahshua himself refers us to it in Matt.24:15 as THE FINAL SIGN that brings back his immediate return. YHVH established the "eternal sacrifice", which was offered daily as told by YHVH: "every day, two unblemished yearling lambs as a perpetual burning offering" (Num.28:3, Ex.29:42).
Yahshua fulfilled the Passover and the duties of the Levitical Priesthood and High Priests were "transferred to heaven" under the new High Priest Melchizedek. So Yahshua now offers the daily sacrifice before YHWH that Daniel says will be removed by a sacrilegious image of the False Messiah.
Melchizedek is the title Righteous Priest/King that Yahshua hold as he now performs the daily offerings prescribed in the Torah at the Throne of YHVH. A picture of Yahshua performing the continual offering as the Lamb of YHVH is found in Revelation 5, we see Yahshua at the Throne of YHVH as a "lamb that had been slaughtered"
1 Next I saw in the right hand of the One sitting on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals; 2 and I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?" 3 But no one in heaven, on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or look inside it. 4 I cried and cried, because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or look inside it. 5 One of the elders said to me, "Don't cry. Look, the Lion of the tribe of Y'hudah, the Root of David, has won the right to open the scroll and its seven seals."
6 Then I saw standing there with the throne and the four living beings, in the circle of the elders, a Lamb that appeared to have been slaughtered.
So we see Yahshua offering daily his slain body before YHVH on our behalf, a daily sacrifice Daniel said would be REMOVED by a sacrilegious image of a false Messiah. This is known as the Abomination of Desolation. We see in the book of Daniel a description of the Abomination of Desolation where it is described as destroying the Temple of YHVH:
11 Yes, it (image of the Beast) even considered itself as great as the prince of the army (The Messiah, the Prince of the Army of YHVH); the regular burnt offering (daily sacrifice) was taken away from him (Yahshua), and the place of his sanctuary was thrown down. 12 Through sin (transgression of the Torah), the army (of the false messiah) was put in its power, along with the regular burnt offering (a replacement for Yahshua). It flung truth (sold a lie instead) on the ground as it acted and prospered.
We see in Romans that mankind would cease to worship the Creator YHVH, become fools, and instead worship what He created in the image of corruptible man:
21Because that, when they knew YHVH, they glorified YHVH not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened (to believe a lie). 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,23 And (they who abolished the Torah and taught a lie) changed the glory of the incorruptible YHVH into an image made like to corruptible man.
We see in Revelation that what replaces the daily sacrifice of the Lamb of YHVH (Yahshua) spoken of by Daniel is "an image" of the False Messiah:
The Beast out of the Earth11Then I saw another beast (Christianity), coming out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb (goat), but he spoke like a dragon (Satan). 12He (Christianity) exercised all the authority of the first beast (Jesus Christ) on his behalf (Authority of the Church), and (Christianity) made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast (Jesus Christ), whose fatal wound (crucifixion) had been healed (resurrection). 13 And he (second Beast/Christianity) performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. 14 Because of the signs he (Christianity) was given power to do on behalf of the first beast (Jesus Christ), he (Christianity) deceived the inhabitants of the earth (the largest religion on Earth is Christianity). He (Christianity) ordered them (humanity) to set up an image (in their hearts/Temples of YHVH) in honor of the beast (Jesus Christ) who was wounded by the sword and yet lived (Jesus Christ). 15He (second Beast/Christianity) was given power to give breath (Spirit of the False Messiah) to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak (to the hearts of man) and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed (Christianity has been waging a war on the True Sabbath Keeping Saints for 2000 years).
The word shiqqus, translated "abomination" in this case, is associated with idolatrous practices. This idol (image of Jesus Christ) will cause desolation, or a Hebrew word form meaning the polluting of a sanctuary rendering it unfit for the worship and service of God.
And we know that the physical Temple will not be rebuilt until AFTER Yahshua returns. We also know that the "Temple" Yahshua rebuilt in 3 days was his body, meaning the body of the sons of YHVH are The Sanctuary or Temple of YHVH. Paul confirms this fact:
1 Corinthians 3
16 Don't you know that you people are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you? 17 So if anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and you yourselves are that temple.
So here is what we know so far, there will be a "shiqqus" or abominable image which is AN IDOL of the false messiah setup in the Temple of YHVH which is within the hearts of man that will REPLACE the daily sacrifice of the Passover Lamb Yahshua; rendering that man (the sanctuary of YHVH) unfit for worship or service to YHVH.
VERY IMPORTANT: There was a physical portrait that occurred in history before the Messiah came that give us a clue to the Spiritual Fulfillment we are now experiencing. When the Seleucid king (see The Seleucids) Antiochus IV in 167 B.C. when he entered the Temple in Jerusalem, erected an altar to the pagan god Zeus, and sacrificed a pig on it. That desecration, dated as the 25th of Kislev according to the Bible Calendar, triggered the Maccabean Revolt by the Hasmoneans (see The Maccabees). Their eventual victory and cleansing of the Temple is still commemorated by Jews today by the annual Festival of Hanukkah.
So how does this physical portrait relate or give us insight into Jesus Christ and the sacrilegious idol that destroys you (The Temple of YHVH)? We know that Jesus or ΙΗΣΟUΣ bears the family name of ZeUS, just as the true Messiah YAHshua bears the family name of YAHweh. There is overwhelming evidence that the name IHS or ΙΗΣΟUΣ is the pagan son of Zeus having the surname of this pagan god SUS which in Latin means PIG... Click Here for proof
|The Greek alphabet have numerical values. The 3
Greek letters used in Rev. 13:18 in referring to this 'mark', were:
The 1st and 3rd letters, it is said, represent the first and last letters of the title "Christos" and the middle letter represents the symbol of the serpent and is intimately connected with the ancient Egyptian Mysteries. (Source: "Number in Scripture" - Dr E W Bullinger pg 49).
Bear in mind that we are still after the 'Name' of this opposing force against the True God YHVH, which, if this Scripture in Rev.13:16-18 has any reference to it, is linked with this mysterious symbol linked to paganism - the symbol of the serpent.
In Greek, the first of these three letters, X, also takes the sound of a 'Z' - as in Xenephen or Xylophone.
The first and last Greek letters of this 666 formula, may therefore also be referring to the first and last letters of the name 'Zeus'.
So, know we see the clear connection behind the name Jesus being to "son" of or pig sacrifice of Zeus on Easter and the abbreviated form of Christ (Xes) being the literal interpretation of The Mark of Jesus Christ equaling 666. We already know, the X is the monogram for Jesus Christ. See Mark of the Beast.
But why a "pig"? What does the pig mean. And more importantly, does it point to Jesus Christ? First we know the pig is considered the most unclean among animals by YHVH (shiqqus, the most sacrilegious/abominable act), the opposite of the spotless lamb required. Second, we know that in an act of worship to Zeus/Khunsu a pig was slaughtered in place of a lamb. A simple inquiry into Greek Gods clearly demonstrates the relationship between the son of Zeus and Khunsu. So what of the pig and is there a connection to the Anti-Christ image worshipped as God erected in the Temple (your heart) who is Jesus Christ?
Yes. The God Khunsu is Lord over the pig--a type of Sut. He is portrayed in the disk of the full moon of Easter, in the act of offering the pig as a sacrifice. This was the God worshipped by Antiochus IV and why he sacrificed a PIG on the alter. And this is why the sacrifice of "Jesus Christ" is celebrated on Good Friday/Easter Sunday! Yes, Jesus Christ is THE PIG portrayed by what Antiochus IV did. YHVH sacrificed his son, the Lamb on PASSOVER the true Messiah Yahshua. The sacrifice of Zeus made was a PIG on EASTER the False Messiah Jesus.
The "image" of corruptible man that is setup in the hearts (sanctuary or temple) of those who believe a lie is Jesus Christ whose sacrifice is celebrated on Easter. The pagan pig sacrifice of Zeus. A pagan substitute/sacrifice for Yahshua the Passover Lamb of YHVH.
Because Jesus Christ or IHS or ΙΗΣΟUΣ or Xes or IS the PIG sacrificed on EASTER to Zeus/Khunsu and is the Abominable Image setup in the heats of man and worshipped as God that removed the TRUE sacrifice of Yahshua the PASSOVER LAMB. Rendering the sanctuary, those who worship Jesus Christ who is the Anti-Christ unfit to worship or serve YHVH.
Literally speaking... The word shiqqus, translated "abomination" in this case, is associated with idolatrous practices. This idol (image of Jesus Christ) will cause desolation, or a Hebrew word form meaning the polluting of a sanctuary (your body) rendering it unfit for the worship and service of God.
And "Christianity" the second Beast has caused the vast majority of people over 2000 years to erect an image of Jesus Christ, the pig, in their hearts and worship him as God. We have not worshipped YHVH the Creator as God but rather worshipped an image of corruptible man and we have been given over to a lie. A false messiah, a false sacrifice. The Image of the False Messiah (Jesus Christ) has been erected in the Temple of YHVH (hearts of man) and a PIG slaughtered on that alter instead of the Passover Lamb. Rendering YHVH's sanctuary (those who believe the lie) unfit and stopping the continual offering made by the High Priest Yahshua on their behalf.
That is... The Abomination of Desolation.
