Bible: Matthew 24:15-26
The Abomination of Desolation
24:15 “So when you see the abomination of desolation 1 – spoken about by Daniel the prophet – standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), 24:16 then those in Judea must flee 2 to the mountains. 24:17 The one on the roof 3 must not come down 4 to take anything out of his house, 24:18 and the one in the field must not turn back to get his cloak. 24:19 Woe 5 to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing their babies in those days! 24:20 Pray 6 that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. 24:21 For then there will be great suffering 7 unlike anything that has happened 8 from the beginning of the world until now, or ever will happen. 24:22 And if those days had not been cut short, no one would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. 24:23 Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ 9 or ‘There he is!’ do not believe him. 24:24 For false messiahs 10 and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 24:25 Remember, 11 I have told you ahead of time. 24:26 So then, if someone 12 says to you, ‘Look, he is in the wilderness,’ 13 do not go out, or ‘Look, he is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe him.
