JESUS SPOKE ABOUT END-TIME EVENTS. His disciples asked Him: "Tell us, when shall these things be? and WHAT SHALL BE THE SIGN when all these things shall be fulfilled?" Luke reports: "...they asked Him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and WHAT SIGN WILL THERE BE when these things shall come to pass? Matthew's report is specific: "...Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be THE SIGN OF THY COMING, and of the END OF THE WORLD?" (Mar 13:3-4, Luk 21:7, Matt 24:3)
Jesus answered them and GAVE THEM THE SIGN: “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:)...” Mark reported: “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)” Luke's Report TELLS US PLAINLY what we're supposed to "UNDERSTAND": “And WHEN YE SHALL SEE JERUSALEM COMPASSED WITH ARMIES, THEN KNOW that the DESOLATION THEREOF is nigh.” The END-TIME ANNIHILATION of JERUSALEM IS THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION!! (Mat 24:15, Luk 21:20, Mar 13:14) ..... Let's TURN ON THE NEWS and see if armies are CURRENTLY surrounding Jerusalem?? --clark
