A Holy Place
A daily sacrifice taken away. Jesus points to Daniel, the holy place, and the abomination of desolation. The Dome of the Rock is standing in the holy place and in the way of the third temple. Daniel knows what is important. The Temple. Only a beast would take away the daily sacrifice. Only those with understanding will see this.
A Problem With The Temple
A reason for Daniel who knows the difference. Some bibles have way too many beasts and others have a problem with identifying them. The real ones had something to do with the Temple. Don’t mess with the Temple. Jesus provides a clue with the abomination of desolation in the holy place. What is in the holy place now?
A Common Beast
A second beast of the Apocalypse. John knows Daniel knows beasts. The beast which he saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion. The “ten horns” also ties them together. Numbers tie history to the fulfillment of prophecy.
A king of the north, a fit with history. Mohammed, the king of the south, and his daughter, Fatimah, along with Muawiyah, the king of the north are a perfect fit with Daniel 11. The abomination of desolation, the Dome of the Rock, was built by the Umayyad dynasty started by Muawiyah.
A beast in the making. Why only four? What makes a beast a beast per Daniel? The Temple. Don’t mess with the Temple. Babylon destroyed the first one. Greece desecrated the second. Rome destroyed the second. Islam is preventing the third. The Dome of the Rock.
A beast in the making. Babylon and Rome destroyed the first and second Temples. They are beasts. Greece is also a beast based on the desecration of the second Temple by Antiochus IV Epiphanes. What is in the holy place now preventing the third Temple? The Dome of the Rock making Islam the fourth beast.
A revelation in Daniel. What makes a beast a beast? Daniel knows beasts and abominations. Jesus wanted us to pay attention to them. An abomination is something that you do to the holy place. The Temple. Only a beast would mess with the Temple. With only two Temples, how do you get four beasts?
A Great Sultan
A fit with Daniel. Saladin came out of the Fatimid Caliphate, the fourth of ten Islamic dynasties, and would start the fifth, the Ayyubid dynasty. We also have the Battle of the Horns of Hama and the Battle of the Horns of Hattin. Saladin was involved in both of them. He not only beat the crusaders, he beat Richard the Lionheart. It’s a fit.
A Dome of the Rock
A desolation. What is in the holy place now? The Dome of the Rock is preventing the third temple and that makes Islam a beast different from all the others. The “ten horns” are the ten dynasties of Islam. Counted by Islamic sources. The Ottoman Empire, the tenth dynasty, ended the thousand year Christian empire, The Byzantine Empire, in 1453.
