Bruce Warner - Abomination of desolation x Temple"
Dear Bruce and Doves
In response to Bruce’s letter http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/june2011/brucew626-2.htm
The abomination of desolation could also be something related to
the Ark of the Covenant, after (and if) it is found. This holy
object (the most precious and holy object that was inside the
Holy of Holies compartment in the Temple) might be found and
Just consider: what was holier: the room (“The Holy of Holies”)
or the object that made the room so holy, because it was God’s
dwelling place on Earth? Or both?
I agree that a new temple will be built by the Jews, but the
abomination of desolation itself might be some occurrence
related to desecration of the Ark of the Covenant and not
something necessary taking place inside a new temple.
So if the original Ark of The Covenant is found before a new
temple is built, the desecration could take place without the
existence of a temple or even outside its premises (even after
it’s built). For example: suppose some agreement is made about
Jerusalem and the Vatican takes control of the place where the
Dome of the Rock is located. Suppose the Ark of the Convenant is
found somewhere and then placed in an altar in some Catholic
Church (could even be in Rome) or Muslim mosque, together with
pagan images and pagan pratices. On top of that, suppose the
Antichrist performs some blasphemous act inside that place.
That’s why I think that the premise that a new Temple must be
built before the start of the 70th Week starts is not a
requirement for the abomination of desolation to be fulfilled.
