things to come 8 of ?

We are in Matthew 24 picking up in verse 17 where Jesus says,

So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’w J spoken of through the prophet Daniel – let the reader understand – then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains…For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now – and never to be equaled again.  If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.  At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it.  For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect – if that were possible.  See, I have told you ahead of time.

I left the footnote in.  In the 1987 version of the NIV the footnote points to Daniel 9:27; 11:31; 12:11.  That’s where we’ll pick up next time.
