What a masterpiece the great Book of Revelation, the Book of the Uncovering, the Book of the Unveiling.

The false messiah, though the look-alike Jesus, Satan, will appear first, before our Lord's return, and he shows up at the 6th Trump and the 6th vial, and we will find him here in the 6th seal as well. 666

This is absolutely precious knowledge! If you have "eyes to see" and "ears to hear" you will discover that this sixth seal will reveal something that the majority of Christian ministers and pastors and teachers are completely unaware (ignorant) of, and consequently they cannot understand the events of prophecy foretelling of our present day and the days that lie just ahead. (They have been following the rider of the white horse, of the first seal, who has led them down a desolate road.) They must therefore rely on "traditional" teachings which defy common sense and can easily be proven to be contradictory to God's Word even by a child. It is no wonder they shy away from the Book of Revelation, even telling their congregations that they won't be here anyway when these events take place, so why bother trying to understand it.  Woe unto them!

We have also learned that all Seven of the Seals were given to the disciples by Jesus in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 as Signs of what it would be like just prior to His second advent. To understand this 6th seal then, let's pick it up in Mark 13:14, just after He gave the 5th sign (we'll repeat verse 13).
Mark 13:13
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

[14] But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

What is the abomination of desolation? Actually the question should be "who" is the abomination of desolation? Just a little application of rightly dividing the Word will make this very, very simple.

You will find that "he" is the "abominator" who comes in on the wings of desolation, i.e. lays waste, makes desolate, spoken of by Daniel the prophet in chapter 9 of the book bearing his name. That is why Dr. Moffat translates "standing where 'it' ought not" as "standing where 'he' ought not".

Do you know where he ought not to be standing? The apostle Paul speaks of this exact same event in his second letter to the Thessalonians concerning the son of perdition, i.e. the son who will perish, the abominator who makes desolate, Satan himself:
2 Thes. 2:4
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.
He stands in the temple of God, where he ought not to be sitting either, claiming he's Jesus Christ. When you see this, Christ continues in Mark 13:15...
Mark 13:15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:

[16] And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.

These two verses simply say that when you see this "benchmark" of prophecy come to pass, i.e. Satan posing as Christ, that time is short and Jesus will return very soon and as watchmen on the tower or workers plowing in the field, there is no need to come down or go back to the house and pack your bags.
 These verses are figures of speech saying time is extremely short.

And where is the "Temple of God"?  Well it's not in Jerusalem as many/most Bible commentators say.

1 Corinthians 3:16  Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

17  If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

So Don't Be Looking In Jerusalem
for this
"benchmark" of prophecy to come to pass, Satan posing as Christ;  Look in your own heart, because that is where "The Temple of God" is to be!!!!!!!
Mark 1317 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

John Rhine cautions you to see my notes within this green background below concerning the TEMPLE:   
When Christ returns, Woe to any one, He finds spiritually nursing Satan's Baby.
You see, the temple Christ will destroy at His return, is that false temple that exists in  the heart of many/most pro-claiming Christians (Religion), that they've  allowed Satan, "The Rider of the First White Horse" to built there; Along with the strangers, i.e. kenites, who helped him build it (666), crushing all those little stones,
not leaving one atop another!
Only those pro-claiming Christians with "The Seal of God" firmly planted in there mind will know it is the false-christ, i.e. the spurious messiah, not the true Christ sitting there in their heart!

But, also read Revelation11:8, It says when talking about the two witnesses that Satan kills:
Revelation 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
The great city is "Spiritually" called Egypt and Sodom. But it says their bodies will lie in the city where Christ was crucified, and that would be in Jerusalem. Now, what comes to your mind when you think of Sodom and Egypt? "Vice" in Sodom and Gomorrah and "Tyranny" in Egypt! Yes, that about describes the crowd who has taken over the Temple in the Holy City and what's going on there.

"Dead bodies" in the Greek means "corpses". The corpses of the two witnesses will lie in the "open square" in Jerusalem (look up
street in Strong's) . This documents that the two witnesses are not two churches but two human beings.
[9] And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

Question:What does all this tell me?
Answer: It tells me I have some more studying, along with correctly dividing, of "His Word" to do!
 Because, in my m
ind it poses another question: Are we talking "The City of Jerusalem" or "Our Hearts" as I just Asserted above or BOTH?
