The Abomination of desolation and the Son of Perdition warned about in scripture was the presentation of all the shadows and images of the things of God in Heaven, displayed in Jerusalem of the law and the prophets that were expired in Christ and then destroyed.
That culture was selected to show the things of God. It was designed to show by contrast the invisible things of heaven, but built physically on planet earth for explanation purposes only. They were never Holy. They were only copies of the Holy, but not the actual images themselves. (Hebrews 9.23, 24, Exodus 25.40) But the Jews of that day got caught up in their copies on earth, and disregarded their source. Just like when Christ said “destroy this temple and I will rebuild it in three days” they thought He was talking about their building. He was talking about His body.
Christ said to that Jewish culture “32 Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers’ guilt. 33 Serpents, brood[n] of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell? 34 Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you kill and crucify, and some of them you scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, 35 that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar.36 Assuredly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.
And so it did. The whole culture agreed with their own words saying “25 And all the people answered and said, “His blood be on us and on our children”. And so it was. The blame for the blood of all the righteous from Able to the cross of Christ is on the culture of the Jews. These were Gods words not mine.
The Old Covenant with all its buildings, feasts, services and sacrifices has been emphatically done away with and rendered ineffective and powerless. As displayed in Matthew 27. 51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split”. Their condemnation went down to the bedrock beneath the foundation. You cannot re-build that.
The ledger books of the Old Covenant were settled and closed to enter a new era. ALL the debts and judgements were settled from Abe till Christ to institute “The New Covenant”. New being different from the old. This can only be so if all the law and the prophets are fulfilled and according to scripture they are as described in this verse. “All the law and the prophets were till John”. Matthew 11.13
Daniel also prophesied of the end of that age in chapter 12 saying ““At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble“. you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end”. The angel went on to say “when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.” this happened.
And that happened by the armies of Titans less that 40 years after Christ said to the disciples about Jerusalem ” “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.” This came from the lips of the One they replicated. Any similar replication of the things of God on planet earth after that would be entitled to the same judgment or God really screwed up with the last bunch He severely judged.
So who are those today who use the terms Zion, Israel and Jew today? What does scripture say? We know those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. Revelation 2.9
Christ said “He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gatherwith Me scatters abroad. Where do you stand?
The Kingdom of God is at hand.
