“So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.”
S- There is a time coming when a Sacrilegious object that causes discretion will stand in the Holy Place. Therefore, everyone in Judea must flee without looking back.
R- What comes to my mind are the times when destruction occurred as a result of God’s judgment: the flood, the tower of Babel, Sodom and Gomorrah, Egypt with its plagues, the destruction of the temple in 70 AD and a future judgment ushering in the return of Christ. In each instance, the people were and will scatter, fleeing to another place, the hills and the mountains, the caves, to get away. But those rescued, those who are made righteous by faith are not to look back, but head to the mountain and meet with the One Whom they were saved.

P – Thank you Lord, those who trust in you , you save. You rescue us from destruction and invite all in faith, to meet with you on your mount. There we commune with you and are safe. This is our abiding place. Psalm 27:5
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.”
