A Study of the End Times - Revelation PM # 16 - Abomination of Desolation 06/24/2018
Is it possible to boil down the seven years of Tribulation and the return of Christ into one chapter? It is for Jesus and He did right here.
Vs 5-7 Matches the Four Horsemen of Rev. 6
Vs 8 The first couple of years of Tribulation
Vs 9-10 Anti-christ begins persecution in Rev. 7
Vs 11 False Prophet appears in Rev. 13
Vs 14 Reference to the 144,000 in Rev. 7
Vs 15 Anti-christ takes Jerusalem in Rev. 11
Vs 16 Jews flee to Petra in Rev. 12
Vs 21-22 Seven Vial Judgments in Rev. 16
Vs 26 The Satanic empire in Rev. 17-18
Vs 27 Appearance of Christ in Rev. 19
Vs 28 Battle of Armageddon in Rev. 19
Vs 29 Defeat of Satan and Anti-christ in Rev. 19

We’ve at the mid-point of the Tribulation and have seen judgment after judgment fall on the earth. But what has the anti-christ been doing and what is this abomination of desolation that Jesus spoke of?
Abomination: There are several Hebrew words that are translated as “abomination” but they all bring the meaning of something that ‘makes to stink’. The word here is the Gk word Bdulugma and means foul, cursed, detestable, offensive, reeks. We get our word ‘pig’.
