Here is something that (I think) the Lord showed me recently as He directed me to study Daniel's End Time Countdown -- day after day until it came to me what He wanted me to see. And why I now believe that the Covid Lockdown that began on March 13, 2020 was the start of the 1290 day countdown to the End spoken of in Daniel 12.
Old Testament "Temple sacrifices" do not have to be re-established before the antichrist can come because the Hebrew word for "sacrifice" or "burnt offering" is missing from the Hebrew text (in 5 different places from Dan. 8-12) -- meaning that it has been added to the text and is therefore likely wrong. Prov. 30:5-6
In addition, if the people who call themselves "Jews" or Israelis did sacrifices, it would be a national, open rejection of the New Covenant, established by Jesus through His blood: Matt. 26:28; Luke 22:20; Eph. 1:7; 1 Peter 2:24-25.
In Dan. 12:11-12 we are given a literal countdown to the abomination. During this time we are told that times and law (or many legal decisions) will be "given into his power for 3.5 years." I believe that this is the time we are now in, and why almost none of America's courts would vote to investigate the 2020 Election. Dan. 7:25
In Dan. 12:11 some translations say "daily sacrifice," while others say "burnt offering," or "regular sacrifice," however the word for "sacrifice" and / or "burnt offering" is Not in the Hebrew text -- but has been added (both here and in Daniel 8:11, 12,13 and 11:31). The meaning of the word for "regular" or "daily" is also the continual, or continuity, and thus could also be translated as "the normal" --- as in the normal way of life -- all over the World (that was stopped, diminished, disturbed, distorted, and or perverted -- if only for a few days) on or about March 13 of 2020, because of the (ostensibly terminal) "flu." I believe that this was the beginning of the 1290 day countdown to the "abomination of desolation" that will then be "set up," and after which time we have 45 more days to the Return of the King of Kings -- Jesus the Christ. This is also referred to as the "time of darkness" that will come on the whole earth (John 9:4) --- during which time God's people will have to stay put, cease working, and / or hide out. 2 Thes. 2:1-12, Rev. 13:16-18; 17:12-14, Isa. 26:20-21; Dan. 12:1, 7; Zeph. 2:3.
