What is so interesting about God is found in His own messaging to us. Today I want to discuss with you just how precise God is in His messages.
There is a group of Christians, who call themselves Watchmen. They are watching for the Rapture. They do this by considering the signs of the Second Coming of Christ. Jesus gave us some of those signs, among which was included:
Matthew 24:15 “Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), (NASB1995)
The significance of this sign is without question great. It suggests the reason why pre-Trib scholars have been off base, for so long, with their predictions of Jesus imminent Coming. This can likely be understood in the incredible preciseness of this one and the other prophecies surrounding it throughout Scripture. For God has this very moment in time in His total control. For years He had the Temples completion delayed by the misunderstood supposed location of the original two Temples, which location was thought to have been on the site of the Dome of the Rock. And no one was willing to bring down the existing Muslim structure in order to build the Temple.
But there was another obstacle that still exists today, because the ashes from the perfect Red Heifer must be used to dedicate this next Temple as well. Yet, that perfect animal is totally in God’s hands. The production of this animal could be close and it could still be far away. See the Red Heifer update:

But it appears that God is close to fulfilling His time line for these prophetic events, which must take place. The reason that it seems closer is because scholars are now actually looking to God’s Word for the real location of the Temple, and they have found that it’s Scriptural location is not where it was assumed to be.
What is the significance? The Temple being rebuilt and it’s effect on the long awaited Day of the Lord is the most significant event leading to this Days coming.
2 Thessalonians 2:1 Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, 2 that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for [it will not come] unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. (NASB1995)
Just as the scholars missed the true location of the Temple until they actually believed what was written in the Bible (watch the second shared video for details, click on the link below), so perhaps it will also be true that one day they will actually believe this above scripture, and realize that the Day of the Lord cannot happen until the Temple is rebuilt, and Antichrist has actually performed the Abomination act of which Jesus spoke. How far are we from this time? — I don’t know, but it seems certain that then, when we see these things happening; then we can consider His coming imminent. But there is one more thing that Joel adds to this timing;
Joel 2:31 “The sun will be turned into darkness And the moon into blood Before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes. (NASB1995)
