Prayer At Dedication (CE40)

Mark 13:14"So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not” (let the reader understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains."
 
 During this period of Sorrows or Tribulation, the Antichrist and his false prophets (10 kings) will be so successful in their deceptions by masquerading as angel of light and ministers of righteousness, that the whole world respect, honour and love them as faithful servants of God. But learned Christians and devout Jews will realize that these are deceptive and wicked agents of the devil in the last days.

2Chron 5:6-7,13b-14  Also King Solomon, and all the congregation of Israel who were assembled with him before the ark, were sacrificing sheep and oxen that could not be counted or numbered for multitude. Then priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the Lord to its place, into the inner sanctuary of the temple, to the Most Holy Place, under the wings of the cherubim... the house of the Lord, was filled with a cloud, so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of God.

Just like in the days of King Solomon, as the Antichrist offers the sacrifices, the Jewish priests will carry the ark and all the utensils into the temple and place them in their proper places. Then with demonic power, he will cause the clouds to fill the temple, forcing everyone to flee.

2Thess 2:9-10  The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

In order the deceive all mankind, the Antichrist will imitate the miracles (lying wonders) during the days of Solomon.

2Chron 7:1  When Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Similarly, immediately after the Antichrist's prayer, and to everyone's amazement fire from heaven will consume the countless sacrifices. Mankind (including those watching TV) will rejoice for they thought that God is pleased with the temple, the sacrifices and the Antichrist.

Immediately after the fire​, large clouds filled with lightnings and thunders will come down from heaven to cover and fill the temple (just like when God was on Mount Sinai). Mankind will rejoice for God Himself has come down to earth dwell amongst men in the temple  a of God. (All these lying wonders can be seen by all those living in Judea, and that is why our Lord Jesus told them to flee to the mountains).

2Chron 7:2-3  And the priests could not enter the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord had filled the Lord’s house. When all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the Lord on the temple, they bowed their faces to the ground on the pavement, and worshiped and praised the Lord, saying: “For He is good, for His mercy endures forever.”

Similarly, all the unknowledgeable Christians, Jews, and these watching TV who witness those lying wonders will immediately bow down to worship God, for they were so amazed at the demonic miracles that they were convinced that the Almighty God has taken His rightful place in the Temple of God.

Brethren, if you are not aware of all these lying wonders, do you think you can escape the Antichrist's deceptions?
