Dear Paul Joseph,
Concerning the abomination of desolation, a possibility that came to my mind was that a sample of (whoever’s) blood would be poured on the Ark of the Covenant after it is found. (and I must confess that after JP2’s blood being stored in vial as a relic really seem very strange).
Remember that the Ark of the Covenant used to be the most holy object inside the compartment called “The Holy of Holies” in the Temple, where the High Priest would enter only once a year, on Yom Kippur.
Many believe (after Ron Wyatt’s thesis) that the Ark of the Covenant was buried several meters under the cross the Jesus was crucified on Calvary, and that after the rocks were rent by the earthquake narrated in Mt 27:54, Jesus’s Holy blood (with water) went down all the way to the Mercy Seat on the Ark of the Covenant, dropping exactly where it should drop. If this thesis is true, then the expression “to anoint the most Holy” in Daniel 9:24 would really make sense and be understood by its literal meaning.
Another sentence that would be better understood if that theory is true is 1 John 5:8: “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.”
We don’t know whether the Abomination of Desolation will be something like that (strange blood being poured on the Ark of the Covenant after it’s found), but it could be something of that nature. That could happen with or without the existence of a new Temple in Jerusalem (although I do think that a third Temple is going to be built because of Revelation 11).
