hi, I've written an ebook on revelation, but, I'm still clarifying some things so I might pick your brains for answers. The abomination of desolation. i''m trying to decide weather its at the start of the tribulation 7 years or at the mid-point. Mat 24 seems to suggest at the start followed by the great trib but since i'm tending to think the beast invades Israel to kill the two witnesses at the mid point and then places the abomination., but since the abomination is a created image of the beast which kills people i'm more inclined towards the start.. .but the created image is only done by the false prophet after the beast has received a mortal wound, assissination attempt? so that's more likely after the seven year peace deal is signed by UN president Obama in 2030? [I made that last part up, did u like it? ha ha, It might be prophetic] your input appreciated.
