Here's something I was considering recently. Daniel describes an "abomination" that is set up where the Jewish Temple should be, an abomination that desolates.
Why do we think of this as some future event, when there is already a potential abomination built on Temple Mount?
Apparently it has this verse inscribed on its wall.
"O you People of the Book, overstep not bounds in your religion, and of God speak only the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, is only an apostle of God, and his Word which he conveyed unto Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from him. Believe therefore in God and his apostles, and say not Three. It will be better for you. God is only one God. Far be it from His transcendent majesty that he should have a son."
That would be blasphemy, wouldn't it?
So... how would this effect our timelines and so on? I used to think that the final abomination was some future thing, but what if we've been sitting looking at it all these years, and not even realised?
