OPINION SUBMISSION TO PPSIMMONS: The "Great Tribulation" has begun! Abomination stood in 'Holy Place!' - the place where Jesus was born?
U.S. President Barack Obama, visiting the West Bank city of Bethlehem, stopped twice to light candles for his family and himself: first at the Church of Nativity grotto, where Christian tradition holds that Jesus was born, then at the adjacent Catholic Church of St. Catherine.
On the last leg of his four-day visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories, Obama also took time for a few moments of private prayer and contemplation, said Greek Orthodox Patriarch Theophilos III, who was the first to greet the American leader inside the church, welcoming him as “a messenger of peace and reconciliation.” - see here.
The Bible prophesies that in the middle of a seven year time-span a person with the label "abomination of desolation" will stand in "the Holy Place." Could this be referring to the place where Jesus was reportedly born? If the people reporting this are correct then on the 22nd of March we saw the beginning of what Jesus referred to as a time of "Great Tribulation."
Apparently this opinion is shared by many out there. Below is a video detailing findings by someone other than PPSIMMONS. We are simply reporting these things and making no bold assertions about Barack Obama being the prophesied Antichrist.
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:)
Note: Wikipedia refers to the Church of the Nativity as "The Holy Site"
