Is Jesus' warning to the saints in Judea to flee before or after the siege of Jerusalem & the destruction of the Temple?
The siege has taken place
~so it would be AFTERWARD. Jesus said when ye shall SEE the abomination of desolation standeth where he ought not to stand
, then let them that be in Judea flee unto the mountains.
Judea in the OT was where the OT temple was, where men went to worship~BUT, under the NT, Jerusalem is NO LONGER the city where men go and worship, per Jesus in John 4:21-24...The temple (holy place) now is the outward professing churches of Jesus Christ (Judea)...the abomination that God WILL MAKE desolate in his times, is the man of sin, or, man that lives according to his views of who and what God shall be like.. thereby, man that lives not according to God's word in doctrine and godliness, but according to his own views...which in God's sight is an abomination. This is the little horn spoken of by Daniel; the man of sin by Paul, and Antichrist by John; all ONE and the same. This is the spirit of the beast that makes war with the saints and kill them (not literally, but puts them to silence OUT OF THE TEMPLE OF GOD) and sits and rules therein at the latter days of the last days of this world. This is the little season of Revelation twenty. WHO has eyes to see, and ears to hear, if so, then, take heed and FLEE from Judea, and those that are entering therein, warned them not to do so!
Luke 21:21~"Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.
That's WHY we worship in homes, not in organized religion. This will increase more and more, as this world comes to its end. The man of sin COMES BEFORE Christ comes and gathers US unto himself.
What is the "Abomination of Desolation"?
False professors of the latter day filling the holy place....and this IS the abomination that God will make desolate...this abomination are not limited to a certain sect; group, denominational group, etc. but all people, who profess that Jesus is the Christ, but deny him by their works of righteousness, and doctrines of devils.
