What is the Abomination of Desolation?

“And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.” – Luke 21:20

The previous verse is taken from the Olivet discourse and it has a parallel passage in Matthew…

“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:” – Matthew 24:16-17

This is an amazing reference to an event fulfilled in 70 A.D. but in the Chapel system of dispensational futurism adherents are always exhorted to look toward the future instead of the true fulfillment of the text. A time when Satan will come down from heaven as Antichrist and commit the abomination of desolation while the elect do great exploits. This is a religious fantasy that will never transpire.

According to Murray, Satan will come and enter into a sordid marital covenant with the church and “defile” the bride of Christ – this being one of the chief reasons for the millennium. From beginning to end this interpretation is spectacular foolishness and I feel for anyone bound up in it.

What I would like to submit to those of you who believe the abomination of desolation is a future event is that it has already happened.

Kind of anti-climactic, huh? Not really when you understand – truth is much more interesting than religious fantasy.

In the book of Daniel there are actually what appears to be three separate types of the Abomination of Desolation so let’s clarify because this is where a lot of the confusion emanates…

The first can be seen by the actions of Antiochus Epiphanes when he first desecrated the Jewish temple in 167 A.D. – Daniel refers to this in Chapter 8, 11 and 12. This desecration of the temple would point to the next one that Jesus was referring to…

In the second desecration we see Jerusalem surrounded by the Roman armies and desecrated according to Christ’s word but also in fulfillment of the prophecies of Daniel 9.

The third desecration is referred to by Paul in Thessalonians when the son of perdition is referenced…

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” – 2nd Thessalonians 2:3-4

Paul is explicitly referring to the “Willful King” of the later part of Daniel – this is another view of the little horn. The temple in the New Testament doesn’t refer to some rebuilt temple in Jerusalem but the body of Christ. There is no other power on earth that seeks to usurp the authority of Jesus Christ and put themselves at the head of the body other than the papal power.

There Are Two Sons of Perdition… Who Are They?

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” – 2nd Thessalonians 2:3

One of the things you will hear the Chapel commonly teach is that the “son of perdition” spoken of in John and 2nd Thessalonians both refer to the same futuristic Antichrist.

There is a lot of deception to unpack in this teaching by the Chapel.

The truth is the “son of perdition” in John and in Thessalonians refer to two different things.

In the first instance in John, the term “son of perdition” points to Judas Iscariot. In the second, “son of perdition” refers to an antichrist power that has already been revealed… the papal dynasty. This was spoken of in Daniel and Paul is borrowing from prophecy regarding the “little-horn” in a New Testament light:

“I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.” – Daniel 7:8

False teachers are quick to ignore scriptural context – it gets in the way doesn’t it? Let’s look at a passage from John 17…

“While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.” – John 17:12

The whole chapter Jesus is referring to the disciples whom Judas was counted among. The scripture being fulfilled is Psalm 109…

Why would Jesus stop on the dime and start talking about Murray’s mythical futuristic antichrist?

This is a common maneuver by the Chapel, to give words and phrases equivalent meaning across different books even when context requires otherwise. It’s kind of like algebra for heretics, but let me give you a clue if you are a genuine truth-seeker…

One word or phrase used in one part of the bible can have a completely different referent in another.

Commonly Murray will say that Judas genuinely “repented” of his sin of betraying Christ because he returned the money and that the Kenite power hierarchy in Jerusalem had him killed.

But Judas repentance in the Greek is not “metanoia” but “metamelomai” – in other words he was mentally regretful, filled with grief and anguish at himself and not truly repentant – this is evidenced by the consequent suicide.

Judas Iscariot is in hell.

The Papal Dynasty has been here waging war against the saints and casting the truth to the ground for very long time… and destroying God’s holy people.

Quit making excuses for an evil man whose heart was full of wickedness, greed and betrayal who is now in hell – you miss the gravity of Judas sin and the reality of the evil that took place.

Quit looking for a mythical futuristic superman Antichrist who will never come when the true prophetic fulfillment of scripture is in your midst right now destroying God’s people to an extraordinary degree and will continue until the end of the age.

‘Born From Above’ – Murray’s False Doctrine of Rebirth

'Born from Above' means being born in the flesh...
According to the Chapel ‘born from above’ in part means being born in the flesh from previous earth age…

The Chapel teaches that we must be “born from above” and insists that usage of the term “born again” is a bastardization of the text, but what do they mean?

“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” – John 3:3-7

In this passage Jesus is teaching about the rebirth or regeneration but the Chapel makes this about their own fantasy about being born into this age. This passage in John can be seen from another angle in Titus…

“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;” – Titus 3:5

Salvation is by Grace alone through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone – but for the Chapel the individual must agree to be born into the flesh or be condemned for his part in the first earth age!

Being born in the flesh wipes the slate clean from the first earth age. The non-elect then get to exercise their free will in order to be saved. The 144,000 are justified due to their performance in the first earth age.

You see, to the Chapel we all have a rich pre-history on earth in the world that was. Because of the terrible repercussions of cataclysmic rebellion against God – all souls must be born of woman via the “waters” of the birth canal into this earth age to undergo testing. That was the deal. God is merciful and he will clean their slate if they are born into the flesh in this age.

If a soul refuses this process then they will be condemned immediately for their sins in the world that was – hence, Satan, or the ‘son of perdition’… the only one who refused incarnation into this age.

See how the Chapel uses imaginary events and to guilt people into buying the delusions? I mean who could endure the thought that they betrayed God in the first earth age? Obviously no one who listens to the Chapel. That’s why there are tens of millions of gullible people around the world who believe they are one of the 144,000.

Do you not perceive the wicked hellishness of man-made religion?

Incidentally: Satan is not the son of perdition. There are two “sons of perdition” in scripture, Judas is the one spoken of in John. The little horn is the other.

The Chapel teaches that the little horn is the devil himself de facto, this is false.

The angels of heaven are really just humans waiting to be born on this physical plane. The Chapel teaches that Satan is the son of perdition because he refused to be born in the flesh. Yeah right!

As we can see, The Chapel have invented their own religion and borrowed elements from every manner of diabolical cult — so much of what we see here about pre-existence seems to be lifted directly from Mormon theology.

In this crazed form of religion being born “from above” is some quasi-mystical religious experience that overtakes the minds of those given over to strong delusion, kind of like a gnostic experience. Or to quote the doctor himself…

“When you were begotten from above, you felt that touch. You knew it was true.” – Arnold Murray

What, you knew what was true? When a person is born again there is a conviction of sin, repentance and an acknowledgement of what Jesus Christ has done on our behalf. The Chapel’s doctrine of rebirth focuses on the individuals self-importance.
