Destruction of Jerusalem finished?


A comment which was left:

"The correct translation of Matt.24:15 is
'when you see the abomination of destruction standing on holy ground ---'

The 'abomination of destruction' is the Roman army surrounding Jerusalem in the year 67. Then the army was standing on 'holy ground,' ready to attack the city.

But this attack did not materialize, and the Roman army withdrew staying away exactly for as many days as Jesus had predicted. But when it returned three years later, in the year 70, not only were all of Jerusalem destroyed. More than one million Jews were slaughtered in Jerusalem alone and one hundred and ten thousand were taken to Rome as slaves. Also some of the towns that Jesus had condemned, were destroyed by the Roman army at that time. But those few who had heard Jesus' warning and heeded them, fled to the mountains. And therefore all of Jesus apostles saved their lives.

Do not mix this incident with Jerusalem being trampled by those of the nations 'until the day, period, of the nations are over.' This did not happen until the six-day war in 1967. Only then did Jerusalem come under Jewish rule.

I hope this was clarifying.

You are viewing things physically (1 Corinthians 2:10,13,14). Literal, physical, geographical Jerusalem today, is insignificant (Acts13:46; Rom.9:25; Matthew.21:43; 23:37,38; Romans 11:7,8,10,17,19,20,21,22).
The "Gentile/nations times" are still with us, dominating the "Israel of God" New Creation (Romans 9:6; Romans 2:28,29; Gal.6:15,16; Dan.8:10,13). The "Lord's people" are equated with "the starry host of the heavens". The Israel of God are the "stars of heaven" being trampled and thrown down....the ones mentioned at Dan.8:10 (Dan.12:3; Phil.2:15; Heb.12:23; Eph.2:6). These illuminator "stars" are not the Jewish citizens of literal physical Israel (Gal.4:24,25), but are the spiritual brothers of Christ (Matt.5:14,16) These have nothing to do with Jerusalem here today (Heb.13:14; 11:10, (Rev.21:14) Heb.11:16; 12:22; Rev.21:2).

If you are able to see Christ's warning as extending to the end of the New Covenant (rather than only applying to the end of the Old -Matt.24:3), then you will perceive it's present prophetic application to members of Jerusalem "above" (Gal.4:26) and her symbolic son (Rev.12:5; 2:26,27).

Just as the first threat by the Roman Gentiles did not end in death, so too the prophetic fulfillment (Rev.9:5,6,10). Just as the return of the Roman Beast resulted in death, so too it's prophetic fulfillment (Rev.11:7; 13:15; 6:9,10,11; 20:4).
Yet this final death is required, (as it was with Christ, in order to establish the Covenant to come)
and is also, again in obedience to Christ's warning (Mark8:35; Hebrews.13:13; Romans6:3).
The Kingdom Covenant follows the New Covenant...

It took 3 1/2 years for the original return.
The prophetic one takes "3 1/2 times" (Dan.12:7; Rev. 12:14).
The book of Revelation was written after the fall of literal Jerusalem. (see Rev.11:2)
If you look at 2Thessalonians2:4 you will see that the Man of Lawlessness fulfills your description of "the abomination of destruction standing on holy ground". Yet this Gentile power "standing" "where is does not belong" (Mark 13:14), is not done away with (Gentile times ending) until Jesus returns (2Thess.2:8). "He" is not done away with by means of a 6 day war between two elements of Satan's dominion (1John5:19; 2Cor.10:3,4,5).


  1. Sister Pearl,

    Thankyou for your understanding on this subject. I believe it is as Paul said:

    1Cor 2:
    14 But a physical man does not receive the things of the spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot get to know [them], because they are examined spiritually. 15 However, the spiritual man examines indeed all things, but he himself is not examined by any man. 16 For “who has come to know the mind of Jehovah, that he may instruct him?” But we do have the mind of Christ.

    So as we are taught by the spirit:

    Galatians 5:
    For such freedom Christ set us free. Therefore stand fast, and do not let yourselves be confined again in a yoke of slavery.

    Have a nice free day.
