In other words, a fairly literal re-enactment of the offence of Antochus Epiphanes.
But that event would be an abomination only for the adherents of that temple, on the premise that the temple was originally dedicated to a more sprirtual purpose. That's what was happening in the original episode.

So I tend to focus on Paul's insight thaat the Christian community itself is the temple of God, under New Testament conditions, and speculate from there. "Do you not know that you [plural] are God's temple [singular], and that [i.e. because] God's Spirit dwells in you [plural]"- 1 Corinthians ch3 v16

This makes the proposition "the physical temple will be rebuilt" redundant.

I was actually thinking of the possibility that the temple was inside the followers (even as I wrote my post), but most of the Christian doom preachers I've heard or read believe that a new temple must be built on the mount, then the abomination.

You have to remember that Jesus was Jewish, his followers were Jews, they all followed Jewish beliefs, traditions and customs, and worshiped in the temple. Christ had followers, but there was no Christian religion until after he had ascended into heaven. Jesus may have considered the body as the temple, but he also talked about the physical building too. Perhaps both ideas are valid and Christ meant both, I'll have to do some Bible study to come to a conclusion.

Thanks for bringing this up and stimulating my brain cells on this subject.

I know. Doom-preachers tend to prefer the literal, and their supporters part company with me when I disagree. I've been in hot water this year already.

I would submit that the abomination was a continuation of animal sacrifice after Jesus's ultimate sacrifice.

Abomination of Desolation:


Mat 24:15
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

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

Presence of Abomination which causes Desolation:


Rev 13:14
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
Rev 13:15
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

Daniel, Matthew, Revelation... each book mentions the Abomination..., these 3 puzzle pieces span about 600 years of Time

the First 'sign' of the End Times, Jesus tell the disciples is 'Deception'...the same introduction we read above in Rev 13:14

The Image of the Beast... Image to the Beast is what your seeking -> The Abomination of Desolation

the Abomination is brought into existence exactly 3 1/2 years into the Final Week (of years)...the False Prophet supernaturally creates this Image to the Beast caused by the apparent Deadly Head Wound, made against the AntiChrist, who Survives death

my considered opinion is the Image of the Beast AKA: Abomination of Desolation

will be a holograph projection of the AntiChrist, who lay there dead for 3 days and then returns to life...
the projection will be AI driven to imitate Life/Human Behavior, to breathe & speak as told in Revelation

the head wound, the Image, the resurrection, the Revealing-of-the-AC all happen within a 2 week time frame

that's the nuts-&-bolts, fill in the Narrative for yourselves... all the pieces fit

I take it you're responding to the title, not to the opening post. There's a careful definition in the opening post.

I would submit that the abomination was a continuation of animal sacrifice after Jesus's ultimate sacrifice.

I see a couple of difficulties with that theory.
Firstly, in Maccabees and Daniel, the stopping of the sacrifice is the desolation. It is a bad thing, not a good thing, because it interrupts the true worship of God.

Secondly, remember that the Abomination is the signal for an immediate flight. If the continuation of animal sacrifice after the crucifixion was the Abomination, then that would apply immediately after the crucifixion, and the flight from Jerusalem should have come immediateky after the crucifixion. This conflicts both with the words of Jesus and with what happened in Acts.

At the beginning of Acts, the resurrected Jesus remained with the disciples for some time, without telling them to depart immediately. In fact the Jerusalem church did not scatter abroad until the death of Stephen, and even then not completely. In Matthew ch24, there is plainly a long interval before the Abomination appears as a new event.

The New Testament doesn't actually make a big issue out of animal sacrifice being evil. Neither Jesus nor Paul bother to talk about it. Hebrews tells the Jewish Christian they should "move on" from the sacrificial system, but only because it is redundant, because it never really worked, and because it distracts them from putting their full trust in Jesus.

Finally, the Temple sacrifice doesn't fit the defintion because it isn't redirecting worship towards a different God.

The text from bible could mean that the temple is us , and when they start merging machines and human consciousness ,abomination will happen, we stop being then the temple, which leads us to desolation.

The techology is being build now....when they can penetrate to our mind with it, we stop being us, we stop being the temple...we become abomination in God`s eye and are send to desolation... and when we are connected to machine/software that is run by AI it resemble as the other God.

When we get connected to other entity,that effects our consciousness ,we are seen as being alone...alone from God .And as we know, they already had years technology that can effect our mind from outside , induce fear`s not the same as this what they are now designing ,as the new one will be something that is physically merged with human body.

new twist to Abomination explained...

the Image to Beast which was given life and ability to speak (hence an Abomination) will decree that ALL persons shall receive the (Gates Foundation) COVID Vaccine which alters the subjects' DNA @ the RNA Level ->>

thus making the vaccine acceptance taker an 'Altered' or 'Patentable Property of the Vaccine Maker
(and No Longer an Individual person) neither an 'Adamic human' NOR a evolutionary Earth Person Sapiens-Sapiens -->
~ which in my book makes the subject an Desolation instead of a free Soul

It is a Chimera, like the Nephilim making the world barren.
