Flee into the Mountains
In Matthew 24:15-18, Christ Jesus references the Book of Daniel when he says:
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. [emphasis added]
And in Mark 13:14-16, the same saying was recorded as follows:
But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judæa flee to the mountains: and let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house: and let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
Here is an Interesting new translation from http://www.2001translation.com/MATTHEW.htm, which claims to be non-denominational:
So when you see the disgusting destroyer that was spoken of through the Prophet Daniel standing in the Holy Place (let the reader pay attention to this), those [who are living] in Judea should flee to the mountains! The man who is standing on his roof shouldn’t go down to remove things from his house, and the man who is standing in his field shouldn’t [go back home] to get his clothes.
There are many “signs” of the end times in Matthew 24, but none is more important than this one. Why? Because it is the last one given before Christ Jesus says to “flee into the mountains.” His use of “flee” and the deliberately exaggerated urgency of the last two sentences could not be any clearer. This is the last sign before the end. It is therefore profoundly important to understand the real meaning of the phrase “abomination of desolation.” I can assure you, it does not mean what you think.
Translating the “abomination of desolation” (NEW)
The Hebrev Old Testament term is shiqqutz(im) meshomem.
The Greek New Testament term is bdelugma tes eremoseos.
It is generally thought that only Daniel chapters 2:4 – 7:28 were written in Aramaic
What does the “abomination of desolation” mean?
What an odd phrase. What could “abomination of desolation” possibly mean? To answer this question, we must first understand the meaning of “holy place” in this context. Christ Jesus doesn’t add the parenthetical expression “(whoso readeth, let him understand)” after “when ye shall see the abomination of desolation.” It is added after “stand in the holy place” in Matthew and after the more secular “standing where it ought not” in Mark. Thus the definition of “holy place” (or “where it ought not”) is as important as understanding the meaning of “abomination of desolation.” One should not expect a simplistic interpretation of “holy place” or “where it ought not” else the warning to the wise “(whoso readeth, let him understand)” would not have been necessary.
The word “holy” in Matthew 24 is hagios in the original Greek.
Now before I go any further, allow me to say that I use only two Bibles: the Authorized King James Bible and George M. Lamsa’s “translation from the Aramaic of the Peshitta.” The latter did not suffer as many translations as the former. It is interesting to note that Lamsa uses “the sign of uncleanness and desolation” instead of “abomination of desolation” in both Mathew and Mark.
When you see the sign of uncleanness and desolation, as spoken of by the prophet Daniel, accumulating in the holy place (whosoever reads will understand)
But when you see the sign of uncleanness and desolation, as spoken of by the prophet Daniel, accumulating where it should not be (let him who reads understand)
I want to suggest that “the sign of uncleanness” and “accumulating where it should not be” (or “standing where it ought not” in Mark) frees us from a religious interpretation of this text. More specifically, the “holy place” is not some room in a modern day version of Solomon’s Temple. The use of “holy” (hagios) in Matthew must be understood from its Greek root meaning of to venerate or revere. More generally the “holy place” is the seat of real power. In biblical times, this would indeed be the scribes and Pharisees, but not today. Nor is the seat of real power in the Oval Office. In the end times, the real power is with those who control access to the granite tunnels in Colorado, who are effectively presiding over the deaths of some seven billion people. It is the Progeny of Jove. More specifically, it is the Illuminati.
Now let me ask you something. How would those people, who possess a certain knowledge of the end time (i.e. both exactly what is going to happen and the year in which it is going to happen), how would such people be acting immediately before the end? Take a minute to ponder this question. Try to put yourself in their shoes. Really try. You are for all practical purposes the “chosen people” who are going to usher in a new era in human civilization, which from it’s very outset will have “free energy” and anti-gravity propulsion systems, one world government, no war, no pestilence — a vision that only the Walt Disney movie “Tomorrowland” can fully and accurately convey. But for the moment you must wait another year or two, living with hordes of people whose reality has been carefully constructed specifically to keep them in the dark, who laughingly argue amongst themselves about who should be the next puppet “President” or “Prime Minister,” whose young men for untold generations you have been sending to their death in senseless wars intended primarily to generate profit and throttle down population growth, who mindlessly waste their lives watching sports your progenitors designed for them (from the football to bowling pins), whose entire reality has been fabricated for them, who are fat, stupid, and disgusting, and who ignorantly pray to an imaginary God you know does not exist. The disdain they feel for us is unspeakable. We are a waste of protoplasm. We are the walking dead, upright corpses that breath.Most of all we are just plain stupid. Follow me now, because I need to take you a little further down this road. They know everything starts anew on the other side of the axial tilt. There is and will be no accountability for their actions prior to the total destruction of the present world order. And they are in total control until then.
Christ Jesus knew, and the prophets could predict, that the people in control of the “Vault Profound” would become monsters right before the end, in the last few years before the axial tilt. And they will get worse the closer we get. 2018 is going to be a roller coaster ride. All of this was completely predictable thousands of years ago. It is the natural conclusion, the inevitable end of the decision to keep this knowledge secret.
So what is the “abomination of desolation?” I have removed this discussion to The Last Sign: Rampant Pedophilia (and murdering the victims) on the The Freemasons of England and Pedophilia page. What is happening to our children is unspeakable. It is indeed the last sign before the end.
All the convoluted theories about the meaning of the phrase “abomination of desolation” in the Book of Daniel that exist in countless books, magazines, and Internet pages regarding this subject are meaningless conjecture. Christ Jesus could think of no surer sign for us that the axial tilt was near than this. If you find that hard to stomach, all I can think to say is that the reality of six or seven billion corpses rotting will probably offend your sensibilities also. We are talking about the end of the world here, not some fanciful notion of Rapture. People are going to die. Everything will be utterly destroyed. Only a handful of people are going to survive. Christ Jesus is trying to tell you how to be one of them. And what he is saying is to “flee into the mountains,” not indulge in the religious delusion of a Rapture, but flee. Because of that, I have zero tolerance for anyone who thinks they are going to be somehow singled out for survival merely because they believe in the Bible.

Arbitrary Death and Destruction
While I am alienating just about every Christian on the planet, allow me to to say that Matthew 24:40-41 is equally misunderstood. This man is about to go to his (seeming) death for us, a necessity which even he dreaded. I can do no less than to honor him with a correct interpretation of his words. The following verses from the Bible are the very basis for the religious delusion of a Rapture. Their meaning is exactly the opposite. In the previous versus, we are warned that no one will expect the end, that people will be going about their daily lives as usual. Then Christ Jesus says,
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
This is what it sounds like, nothing more or less. It is a warning that the death and destruction shall be completely arbitrary. If anything, if you must read something more into these verses, it is a specific warning to his followers NOT to expect that merely believing in him is somehow going to save them. That these two verses have been turned into the “Rapture” as depicted in the above picture baffles me to no end.
