    If I may expound a bit further.... In the days after King Solomon, the kingdoms were divided. The ten northern tribes of Israel, who worshiped upon Mt Hermon, also know as Sion. While the two southern tribes of the Jews (Judah and Benjamin) worshiped in Jerusalem.

    Jesus was sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, the lost sheep of the ten northern tribes. The Jews, of the southern kingdom, they ended up rejecting him.


    Jeremiah 23:5-8
    Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, the Lord our Righteousness. Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that they shall no more say, The Lord liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, The Lord liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.

    me too!

    The only thing that would come to my mind would be the days between the resurrection of Christ and the day of Pentecost, but it is be no means settled in my mind.

    Can we see the crucifixion as the daily sacrifice being taken away?


    To me, we must keep in mind that when the disciples asked the question about when these things shall be, and what would be the sign of his coming, the disciples still DID NOT UNDERSTAND that Jesus was to be crucified.

    My intent is not to disagree, but rather to take it further. Our lives must focus on more than the cross, it must focus on the Spirit of Christ. If we focus only on the cross, then I think we miss much. The focus of the cross is that of the image of a man and his death. We should be more interested and focused on His Spirit and in His Life.

    Matthew 23:16-22
    Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.

    I certainly don't see how God would honor any other sacrifice SINCE the Cross -- the veil was rent from top to bottom -- it is very uncomfortable thinking that bulls, rams, goats being slaughtered would ever mean anything again

    Crucifixes with the body of Christ still on the Cross upset me -- cuz He's not on the Cross anymore.

    Even the popular phrase WWJD - What Would Jesus Do -- kinda bugs me, cuz it connotes His ABSENCE.

    He is not absent.

    We are in agreement that the abomination of desolation that Jesus referred to in the Olivet Discourse is a reference to Daniel 9:27 as well as Daniel 12:11-12

    “And after the sixty-two weeks
    Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself;
    And the people of the prince who is to come
    Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.
    The end of it shall be with a flood,
    And till the end of the war desolations are determined.
    27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
    But in the middle of the week
    He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
    And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
    Even until the consummation, which is determined,
    Is poured out on the desolate.”
    Daniel 9:26-27


    Notice that the city and sanctuary are destroyed in verse 26, which is a reference to the events of 70 AD.

    I see, so it's your testimony that Zechariah 14 and it's language and context does not refer to Jesus Christ.


    • Please tell us which Lord these verse's are referring to if not The Lord Jesus Christ.
    • Please tell us who this Lord is, that will come with His saints, if not the Lord Jesus Christ.
    • Please tell us who this Lord is, if not the Lord Jesus Christ, that is the King over all the earth, Who will be worshiped from His throne by all nations.
    • Please tell us who the name of the Lord God is, if not the Lord Jesus.

    These verse's from Zechariah 14:

    Behold, the day of the Lord is coming,
    And your spoil will be divided in your midst.
    For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem;

    Then the Lord will go forth
    And fight against those nations,

    As He fights in the day of battle.
    And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives,

    Thus the Lord my God will come,
    And all the saints with You
    .

    It shall come to pass in that day
    That there will be no light;
    The lights will diminish.
    It shall be one day
    Which is known to the Lord—
    Neither day nor night.
    But at evening time it shall happen
    That it will be light.


    And the Lord shall be King over all the earth.
    In that day it shall be—
    “The Lord is one,”
    And His name one.


    16 And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 17 And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, on them there will be no rain.

    Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to oppose him. 2 And the Lord said to Satan, “The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?”
    3 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and was standing before the Angel.
    4 Then He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, “Take away the filthy garments from him.” And to him He said, “See, I have removed your iniquity from you, and I will clothe you with rich robes.”
    5 And I said, “Let them put a clean turban on his head.”
    So they put a clean turban on his head, and they put the clothes on him. And the Angel of the Lord stood by.
    Zechariah 3:1-6

    Do you know who the Angel of the Lord is a reference to?

    Yes agreed. Antiochus IV Epiphanes slew a pig on the altar and his other abominations were in the past, not future to the Olivet Discourse.


    Where did Daniel prophesy about a pig being slain on the altar?


    The Olivet Discourse is about His coming and the end of the age, not the events of 70 AD.


    Please point to the scripture in the Olivet discourse that begins with Jesus answering the question of the disciples as he was seated on the mount of Olives, as verse 3 describes, and verse 4 is when He began His discourse.

    3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

    4 And Jesus answered and said to them: ...“Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.


    The context of the opening statement references His coming and the end of the age.

    • Take heed that no one deceives you.For many will come in My name saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many...
    Jesus makes a reference to "His coming" teaching them that just before His coming, many will claim to be Him and decive people.

    • And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
    Jesus refers to events that will be leading up to the end, but the end is not yet.


    In fact the language through the verses which show His coming is all about the signs that will take place just before His coming.


    The AOD is the main one because it is the coming of the Lord that destroys the false Christ who perpetrates the AOD in the Temple, as he claims to be God.

    Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God...8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.

    The destruction of the false messiah [AKA antichrist: Christ = Messiah] is accomplished by the brightness of His coming, which obvoiusly means the false messiah will be alive when Jesus returns with His saints.

    15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened. 23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.
    26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
    30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Matthew 24:15-31

    Jesus coming with His saints from heaven, just as Zechariah foretold.

    And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives,
    Which faces Jerusalem on the east.
    And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two,
    From east to west,
    Making a very large valley;
    Half of the mountain shall move toward the north
    And half of it toward the south.
    5 Then you shall flee through My mountain valley,
    For the mountain valley shall reach to Azal.
    Yes, you shall flee
    As you fled from the earthquake
    In the days of Uzziah king of Judah.

    Thus the Lord my God will come,
    And all the saints with You.

    Zechariah 14:4-5

    I don't know of any other AOD, that's in scripture, just the one associated with His coming and the resurrection/rapture, as well as the destruction of the antichrist,

    However, there were other abominations committed throughout history, of which Antiochus IV Epiphanes committed some in the Temple.

    Yes ma'am.

    I believe God was involved in the building and destruction of all the Temples beginning with the one Solomon built, through the one that is about to be rebuilt.

    Do you believe/understand that the resurrection/rapture is one event that takes place at His coming?
    Do you believe the coming of the Lord was in 70 AD?
    Do you believe the resurrection/rapture is past?

    A clarified YES but we dont completely agree on what rapture is..
    Thee coming of our Lord as you believe His coming to be .. NO
    see answer #1 I do not believe rapture to be just as you say it is...so it woudl not be right to just say yes... The resurrection is still to come..
