"THE ABOMINATION 'THAT CAUSES' TRIBULATION........"
During the 'first 30-days' of his reign, BEFORE he receives the great
power and authority of Satan at the mid-point of the '70th Week of
Daniel', the abomination's power 'is relatively limited' to the
'desolation and tribulation' of Jerusalem and Judea (Israel).
"And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the
abomination that causes DESOLATION (TRIBULATION) is set up, there shall
be one thousand two hundred and ninety days."
Matthew 24;15-16 & 21
"Therefore when you see the abomination that causes DESOLATION
(TRIBULATION), spoken of by Daniel the prophet standing in the holy
place, then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.
For then there will be GREAT TRIBULATION (GREAT DESOLATION), such as
has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor
ever shall be."
"But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its
DESOLATION (TRIBULATION) is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee
to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let
not those who are in the country (Israel) enter her. For these are the
days of VENGEANCE (TRIBULATION and DESOLATION), that all things which
are written may be fulfilled. But woe to those who are pregnant and to
those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be GREAT
TRIBULATION (GREAT DESOLATION) in the land (of Israel) and wrath upon
this (Hebrew) people."
At the end of the first 30-days of his power limited to the 'desolation
and tribulation' of Israel is when he receives the full power and
authority of Satan at the mid-point of the '70th Week of Daniel'. The
anti-Christ then expands his 'desolation and tribulation' to include
the whole world for the next 42-months (ie. the last-half) of the '70th
Week of Daniel'.
Revelation 13;2 & 5
"The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority."
"The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies AND TO EXERCISE HIS AUTHORITY FOR FORTY-TWO MONTHS."
According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
