Abomination Of Desolation And The Great Tribulation

18

Now let's educate ourselves, because it seems we are been scammed by this great tribulation thing today. What is abomination of desolation and what is the great tribulation? We recall that Daniel prophesied these events long before Jesus came and was crucified. Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah(referring to Jesus Christ) be cut off(be crucified)... So, abomination of desolation happened at the time Jesus was crucified 2000 years ago,that was why Jesus made reference to Daniel in Matthew 24 What is then abomination of desolation as spoken by Daniel? It refers to a situation where the land of isreal was left desolate as a result of wars and the isrealites were conquered and were carried away by the Roman empire during Jesus time to another location, leaving the temple in Jerusalem desolate. Matthew 24:6 And ye(to his disciples, not us today) shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. What end was he talking about? The end of the old covenant not necessarily the end of the world. Why was the term abomination used? Because it was abomination to the Jews for the gentiles(the Romans since they were not priests or levites) to have access to the temple and since they were idol worshippers. Idol worshippers having access to the temple of God? That's abomination. Ofcourse, you can understand why Jesus Christ was brutal to those who were buying and selling at the temple, because it was also abomination. Why did God allow the abomination to happen? Now, you understand how the term abomination of desolation came about. So, what is then the great tribulation? WHAT IS THE GREAT TRIBULATION ? Matthew 13:21 ...for when TRIBULATION OR PERSECUTION ariseth because of the word.... The great tribulation was persecution of Christians in bible days and nothing more. so, when you see Jesus quoting saying in Matthew 24:21For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. He was simply referring to persecution of his disciples right from the days before his crucifixion to the days of the early Christian church in the book of act of the apostles (also the days of abomination of desolation) Why am i saying all these? If anyone tells you that there will be rapture or the great tribulation in the future please tell the person stop scamming me, they all happened 2000 years ago Jesus Christ specifically says that generation shall not pass until those things happen
