The abomination of desolation. Biblical reflections and contextualizations of Mt 24,15-25

The abomination of desolation. Biblical reflections and contextualizations of Mt 24,15-25

One of the pieces that I had set out to analyze and contextualize is just that: Matthew 24.15-25. In this passage Jesus is talking about the last times. It is not always easy to decipher the messages contained in the Scripture. But with the help of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary I will try to give you a humble interpretation.

The song in question is this:
"15When therefore you will see the abomination of desolation, of which the prophet Daniel spoke, stay in the holy place - those who read understand -, 16th those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, 17chi is on the terrace does not come down to take the stuff of home , 18e who is in the field do not go back to take the mantle.19Guai pregnant women and those who nurse in those days. 20Pregate why your escape does not happen in winter or on Saturday.
21For then there will be a great tribulation, as never before since the beginning of the world until now, nor will there ever be again. 22And if those days were not shortened, no living would be saved; but because of the elect those days will be shortened.23 Then if someone will tell you: Behold, the Christ is here, or: It is there, do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will arise, and they will make great portents and miracles, so as to mislead even the elect, if possible. I have told you so. "
I naturally used the 1974 translation. I only point out a difference with the new CEI translation. In place of "abomination of desolation", the new CEI reports "the abomination of devastation", which has nothing to do with the real message of Jesus. In Greek, verse 15 is: "Ὅταν οὖν ἴδητε τὸ βδέλυγμα τῆς ἐρημώσεως τὸ ῥηθὲν διὰ Δανιὴλ τοῦ προφήτου ἑστὸς ἐν τόπῳ ἁγίῳ, ὁ ἀναγινώσκων νοείτω ". The Greek term in question is "ἐρημώσεως - eremoseos" which rightly translated would be "desolation" and not "devastation" as the new translation says, because it completely diverts the right meaning of the term.
We do not go further to refute the translation because we would lose the theme.
Jesus in verse 15, taking up again the discourse of the prophet Daniel, then says: "When therefore you see the abomination of desolation, of which the prophet Daniel spoke, stay in the holy place ...". What will this "abomination of desolation" ever be? Jesus is talking about "open apostasy". The abomination of the desolation that "stands in the holy place" is apostasy. The renunciation of the Catholic Faith.
Dear readers, this is what is happening today in my opinion. Churches transformed into "restaurants", Cardinals announcing blessings to gay couples, Priests teachers of theology who propagate the freedom of contraceptive use, Amoris Laetitia who has become the neo-gospel of the neocentric in a practically obsessive way and the "ecumenical mass" , emblem of the apostolic symbol, because it speaks of "the abolition of the Sacrifice" (Daniel 9,27). Only a blind man can not realize that in the Church there is an attempt of "apostasy" that has never happened in history.
To vv. 16-18 Jesus says: "τότε οἱ ἐν τῇ Ἰουδαίᾳ φευγέτωσαν ἐπὶ τὰ ὄρη, 17ὁ ἐπὶ τοῦ δώματος μὴ καταβάτω ἆραι τὰ ἐκ τῆς οἰκίας αὐτοῦ, 18καὶ ὁ ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ μὴ ἐπιστρεψάτω ὀπίσω ἆραι τὸ ἱμάτιον αὐτοῦ." - "then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, 17chi is on the terrace does not go down to take the stuff of home, 18e who is in the field do not go back to take the mantle ".
This call to "escape" is not to be interpreted as "running physically". Escape means in this case "keep away" from APOSTASIA. So "stay away" from these ideologies that the neo-woman is spreading at this time. We have spoken at other times about the synthesis of the neo-gospel of the neocentric: migrants, ecology, ecumenism and Amoris Laetitia. Do you perhaps hear about another from Bergoglio? Even when he wants to put "smoke in his eyes", speaking of the "rights to life", he actually praises abortionists who have never repented (Emma Bonino) and declines the sin of abortion. This means that "voluntarily" wants to create confusion to pass on her heretical mentality. It is a truly obsessive bombardment.
Our "escape" therefore ... who will it be? Our refuge will be ONLY JESUS ​​THE EUCHARIST! If it will be the case also celebrate in the "catacombs". But NEVER get away from the Eucharist.
The V. 19: "οὐαὶ δὲ ταῖς ἐν γαστρὶ ἐχούσαις καὶ ταῖς θηλαζούσαις ἐν ἐκείναις ταῖς ἡμέραις." - "trouble for pregnant women and those who nurse in those days". Jesus is warning the new generations. The young people of these times. This verse is explained by another verse of the Passion of Jesus when he meets the pious women: "Do not weep for me but for your children ..." (Lk 23: 27-31). Indeed today there is an impressive youth suicide rate! Because? Because in the Church Jesus Christ is no longer preached, but the fashion of the world.
Do you know how devastating that phrase of Bergoglio that a few years ago said: "As a young man I smoked the marijuana" ????
(Https://vnews24.it/2014/01/07/papa-francesco-si-confessa-da-giovane-ho-fumato-marijuana/) ?????
If you are not confessors, you do not even have an idea. Many young people felt "legitimized" to take drugs, for this phrase by Bergoglio. And where does the drug take them? To death!
V. 20: "προσεύχεσθε δὲ ἵνα μὴ γένηται ἡ φυγὴ ὑμῶν χειμῶνος μηδὲ σαββάτῳ" - "pray that your escape does not happen in winter or on Saturday". This is a very enigmatic sentence. But I sketch an interpretation. We talked about "fleeing" as a "refuge" in the Eucharist. St. Augustine interpreted this phrase saying that winter brings "cold", and so we are called to pray that in this escape we can find the "Sun", that is, the Eucharist ... a Priest who continues to celebrate the Catholic Eucharist , which is the Sun for our soul! The heat! True Salvation! The "Saturday" is a sign of rest. Always Augustine says: "that day you do not find us in the" rest ", that is in the lukewarmness, in the devaluation of that time" (Cf. S. Augustine, Letter 199, on the end of the world).
The other verses are very clear. Worthy of note are the vv. 23-24: "τότε ἐάν τις ὑμῖν εἴπῃ · Ἰδοὺ ὧδε ὁ χριστός, ἤ · Ὧδε, μὴ πιστεύσητε · 24ἐγερθήσονται γὰρ ψευδόχριστοι καὶ ψευδοπροφῆται, καὶ δώσουσιν σημεῖα μεγάλα καὶ τέρατα ὥστε πλανῆσαι εἰ δυνατὸν καὶ τοὺς ἐκλεκτούς" - "Then if anyone says : Behold, the Christ is here, o: It is there, do not believe it. In fact, false christs and false prophets will arise and will make great portents and miracles, so as to mislead even the elect ".
These verses report the idolatry! See "Christ" where there is not. We live in a neocent who obsessively recalls the idolatry of Bergoglio. Pope Francis here ... Pope Francis there ... Above all by the "anticlericals" who are happy to see the Church of Christ slowly decline. The "false prophets" are those who become "spokesmen" of apostasy. Like that Bishop who preaches the importance of blessing to homosexual couples (https://anonimidellacroceblog.wordpress.com/2018/01/11/il-vice-presidente-della-conference-episcopale-tedesca-mons-bode-breakfast- to-couples-homosexual-and-diaconate-to-women-chronicles-of-neochiesa-extravagant-of-finan-of-lindisfarne /), like those who want priests and cardinals women (https://www.lifesitenews.com / news / francis-nominated-cardinal-pope-could-name-a-woman-cardinal), like those who work to abolish the Holy Eucharistic Sacrifice (https://anonimidellacroceblog.wordpress.com/2018/01/11/breve -appunto-keep-the-works-of-commission-no-more-reserved-for-putting-ecumenical-next-meeting-of-the-work-12-February-2018-in-between-cristoforo /) .
This is the panorama. Take me too crazy. Order me a TSO. But I see it that way. This Word is coming true today.
Every contribution, addition and criticism is warmly recommended. Thank you for what will be your thoughts on this.
Always yours.

  1. Luke 21:20-23 says: 20 “When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city. 22 For this is the time of punishment in fulfillment of all that has been written. 23 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people.
    This is most likely speaking of what is already beginning to happen. We are in that very time of history. President Trump has recently made Jerusalem the capital. As the days go by we will see more and more armies gathering around Jerusalem. But not only in Jerusalem, it will be in Europe and the United States too. There will be a total collapse of the world's economy, so devestating that armies will be encamped to keep the peace and status quo due to a world wide depression in all countries. W.W. III will be in full action all over the world. But mostly in the Middle East there will be the horror of a Nuclear strike, 200,000,000 man army crossing the Euphrates river as scriptures says. Jesus Christ did say that unless these days are shortened there wouldn't be any flesh saved alive. A nuclear holocaust would engulf this whole earth rendering it to a wasteland. The book of Zechariah 14:12 says: And this shall be the plague where with the Lord shall strike all nations that have fought against Jerusalem: the flesh of every one shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
    This would most likely be the results of the Neutron bomb of which the Zionist banker's "state" of Israel has in their war locker possession. This is why Jesus Christ said unless these days are shortened NO flesh would be saved alive but for the sake of His elect (repentant believers)these days will be shortened.

  2. Wait a minute...this already happened in 70 A.D. Furthermore, the abomination of desolation in the holy place seems like it means a false eucharist. It is the only sacrament performed in Heaven and will be the ONLY ONE so of course, they want to destroy the Mass. I remember Malachi Martin saying this.
