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:)
The Latter days: Eschatology
This subject in the Bible is where most believers, Pastor get mixed up, and coarse worry and expectation. In order to put things in context from the bible we have started this study by looking at that last book of the Old Testament which is Daniel, where the bulk of understanding is found, But first of all we looked the reason the Captivity, the first message we began with was the “true and living God”, followed by the message on “Captivity” and our first eschatology lesson was on the number seven “70 years 70 weeks”. The third message was on “the rock that conquers”, which revealed the stone made with out hands and God setting up the Kingdom of heaven after the time of the Gentiles. This followed our second Eschatology lesson on “the image” as found in the book of Daniel and we followed up with the the message from Daniel chapter four which was “things don’t last”
This brings us the third eschatology lesson, where we deal with Rome being in power at the first advent and Rome in power in the second advent.
It is important when studying this subject to consent to the wholesome words of the Lord Jesus Christ, where he revealed t “Daniels 70th week” Matthew 24:15-24.)
Jesus points out that the book of Daniel prophecies have not all been fulfilled.
Jesus makes it clear that the seventieth week is called the Great tribulation and that it is unique as in the fact that there has been no time like it nor will be v21.
As we study this keep in mind we are living in what is called the last days, is two thousand years and in that time there is nothing, even the first and Second World War can be compared.
The key verses are found in Daniel 2:34 and v41-44, which is the stone toppling the image which is called by our Lord the time of the Gentiles
And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
Jesus Christ is our Prophet, Priest and King, he is also the stone made with out hands, our Rock our salvation.
The Lord liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.
My Prayer is that these messages and lessons will help you as a believer to navigate your way through the Bible so you can get a deeper understanding of our Lord and Saviour.
