Some Observations Abomination of desolation (Dan 11:31; 12:11). Jesus in Mt 24:15 refers to the latter Dan 11:36-45the willful king of these verses is the Antichrist of the last days, the man of sin or man of lawlessness in 2 Thess 2:3,4 5/15/2016 9 Take-Aways Never has biblical prophecy been understood the

way it has in recent history. The Lord is opening up the prophetic text to our understanding as the time draws near for the final events to take place God is in control of the future. If we know Him, we know all we need to know. Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace, comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word. 2Thess 2: 16-17 5/15/2016 10
