end will occur! Once the abomination is set up that causes

desolation (Dan. 12:11), it will lead directly to the end of this

age. According to Daniel 12:7, this is to be for a time, times,

and a half a time, or 3-1/2 years.

When Christ spoke of the end, He remarked that there

would be an abomination in the Temple (which has to be re-

built), and that it would cause desolation. This is the same

thing spoken of by Daniel. Christ instructed the people to flee

the area because the greatest of tribulations would begin (Matt.

24:15-16, 21). The people who flee (to a specially prepared

place) will be taken care of for 1,260 days (Rev. 12:6).

We now see that the end will come 1,260 days from the

abomination. Therefore, once this abomination is seen, anyone

can begin to put an “X” through each successive day on a cal-

endar, and do this exactly 1,260 times, until the Lord of Glory

appears at the Revelation.

God has clearly given signs to His sign-needy people, the


“Jews demand miraculous signs…”

(1 Cor 1:22). But, as

the Apostle Paul instructed the Church,

“We live by faith, not

by sight”

(2 Cor 5:7). The Messiah remarked,

“A wicked and

adulterous generation looks for a miraculous sign…”



As time passes, evil grows. After the Church is raptured

(the translation of true believers to heaven), evil will no longer

be restrained (2 Thess. 2:7). All who are left on the earth at

that moment are evil. Among this wicked generation, God will

once again provide signs, and again, He will deal predominately
