Abomination of Desolation Fulfilled AD 70

By Bill Weather6000thyear.com

And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be 1290 days. Blessed is he who waits and reaches to the end of the 1335 days.” Daniel 12:11,12

Fulfilling this prophecy, These are the events in history, which took place,, as recorded by the great Jewish historian, Josephus.

In AD 66, the Jewish rebellion was getting out of hand, so Roman armies were sent to Judea to quell the rebellion. After several battles in northern Judea, they pursued the Jewish rebels south, who then barricaded themselves inside Jerusalem. The Roman armies surrounded Jerusalem and there was a time of negotiations attempted, but failed. Then Cestius, the Roman General and his armies mysteriously left for no apparent reason. This was the time believers, who remembered Jesus’ words to flee, left the city and gathered in the mountains of Pella.

Luke 21:20,21 When you see Jerusalem surrounded with armies, then you’ll know its destruction draws near. Then those in Judea should flee into the mountains…

Matthew 24:15-16 When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the Prophet stand in the holy place, whoso reads let him understand, then let them that are in Judea flee to the mountains.

The Jewish rebels, seeing Cestius retreat, were then emboldened and pursued the Roman army, killing many of them. This would later incite the ire of the Romans, who would come months later, with a much larger army lead by the Roman General, Titus, which started the 1290 days.

The Jews called the Roman army the abomination because Jews saw the Romans as filthy idolaters, with their Eagle insignias and sacrifices made to their pagan Gods. This is why they were called the abomination that would make Jerusalem desolate, thus, the abomination of desolation.

The armies that surrounded Jerusalem from this second siege of Titus, started the 1290 days, and once again, the Jews barricaded themselves inside the city. There was a long stand off, maneuvering going on and fighting between the Jews and the Roman army. The Roman strategy was for the Jews who barricaded themselves in Jerusalem, to become weakened over time from infighting, suicides, starvation and sickness and to peck at them, to wear them down and to make them weak.

When Titus breached the walls of Jerusalem and took the last stronghold, that was when the daily sacrifices stopped and ended the 1290 days. Once the walls were breached, for 45 days, the battle and total slaughter and destruction of Jerusalem and dismantling of Temple took place. By the 1335th day, it was over.

Philip Mauro in The Seventy Weeks And The Great Tribulation, 1923 says, In correspondence with this is the recorded fact that a month and a half after the daily sacrifice failed, the seige was ended by Titus’ getting sudden and unexpected possession of the upper city, the last strong hold of the sieged. This last action took place, according to Josephus, the seventh day of the Hebrew month Elul, ... so that the further duration of the siege after the failure of the daily sacrifice, was approximately one month and a half.

It says those who would wait to the 1335th day would be blessed because those are the believers who escaped to Pella, to then hear the reports that Jerusalem, the temple and those inside the city were completely destroyed.

History records the first siege of Jerusalem with Cestius starting in November AD 66. Upon Cestius’ report, Titus knew he had to prepare a more powerful army with battering rams and other arms to take Jerusalem. The Jews weren’t going to go down easy. That planning took a couple months of preparations, until they arrived and surrounded Jerusalem on February 17 AD 67 to start the 1290 days. Josephus records the last stronghold of Jerusalem taken on the 7th of Elul AD 70, which corresponds to August 30th on our Calendar and completed the 1290 days. 45 days days later, was the 1335th day, corresponding to October 13th on our calendar. What is an incredible phenomenon about all this, is that October 13 was also Tishrei 22, what is known as the last great day and the end of Gods sacred calendar. In other words, God had it planned to physically end Jerusalem, the temple, the Jewish priesthood and the age of torah on what is called :the last great day:, Tishrei 22, the end of God’s sacred calendar. How amazing is that. What incredible, perfect timing and planning of our God, to confirm all of this on the day called “the last great day” of his sacred calendar. This is confirmation to the abomination of desolation fulfilled to the very day of the end of Gods sacred calendar in AD 70… wow.

Is this a new discovery I made in prophecy. Not sure about that, but God lead me into this discovery. Give him praise.

By this amazing phenomenon, and strong record of history through Josephus, we see the abomination of desolation is not in the future, but has been fulfilled. Christ foretold in Matthew 24 that there would not be a worse time for Jerusalem, proving a point, that you can’t get a worse destruction than a total destruction, which proves, that a future fulfillment cannot be possible, because Jerusalem was completely destroyed in AD 70.

Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor shall ever be.

There you go, the words of Jesus settles it.

The Futurists and all their grandized published teachers with huge money behind them, cannot change the fact, that history proves them wrong and in no uncertain way.
