1 John 1:9 says—“If we confess [simply name, cite or acknowledge to God the Father] our sins [known sins], He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins [known sins] and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness [all unknown and forgotten sins].” NKJV (New King James Version)
If you have never personally believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior (that is, believed in Him for eternal life), the issue for you is not to name your sins to God; the issue for you is to believe by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life and you will be saved the very second you believe in Him:
John 6:47 says: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life.” NKJV
Notice again what John 6:47 says, “he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life.” It doesn’t say, “will have”; it says, “has.” Therefore, the very moment you believe Jesus Christ’s promise of everlasting life, you have it (it’s really just that simple), and it can never be lost or taken away from you (John 10:28-29). Furthermore, the gift of everlasting life (also called eternal life in scripture) is available to every human being; there are absolutely no exceptions.
John 3:14-18 says: “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” NKJV

How the abomination of desolation comes alive.
7. It is clear from the scriptures that the influence and power of both the United States and the RCC will force people to worship the anti-Christ.
What is missing is the power that is behind these beasts which is not human power but demonic power.
When all these things are happening , Eph 6:12 is still a reality and the main power behind the functions of the two beasts.
Eph 6:12 Because our struggle is not against blood [people’s souls] and flesh [their old sin nature], but against the rulers [these are the archons like Abaddon and Beelzebub], against the powers [demon officers who have phenomenal authority], against the world forces of this darkness [kosmokratoras meaning demons who specialize in possessing or influencing the cosmos or world rulers] against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places or against the spiritual forces of evil in the atmosphere around the earth, the stellar universe and in the presence of God.
We cannot get so occupied with the human weapons and vessels that are being used by Satan and the kingdom of darkness and take your eyes off the true enemy.
Rev 12 = we are told that it is a time when Satan and all his angels are kicked out of heaven forever.
The tribulation period is called the devil’s “short time.”
Satan will perform signs and wonders and miracles to deceive those who are alive on the earth at that time.
Matt 12:39 “An evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign; and yet no sign shall be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet;”
2Th 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work only he who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way [Rapture].
2Th 2:8 And then that lawless one [the anti-Christ] will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; – Second Coming
2Th 2:9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,
Image = the Greek noun eikon which means an idol, a statue, a representation, here we go again with the principle of counterfeiting.
The Antichrist will forbid and abolish all religious worship, declaring himself God and requiring worship of himself, with suppression, persecution, and even death to all who won’t bow to him.
Then the real fearful part of the Tribulation Period, the last three and a half years will begin.
When the statue or idol which is set up in the Jewish temple comes alive then this Abomination of Desolation introduces the Great
Tribulation period, the second three and a half years of the Antichrist’s reign.
When you see it standing there, you’ll know the Tribulation has begun.
When you see come alive, you’ll know that the worse time in all of human history is about to begin.
Jesus said you’d see it “standing in the holy place,” Matt 24:15.
Daniel 11:31 said it is the anti-Christ “ that places there the Abomination of Desolation” inside of the Jewish temple, Dan 11:35.
Daniel 12:11 says that “the Abomination of Desolation is “SET UP.” He places it, he sets it up and it stands there, so it’s some kind of standing object.
In the 13th chapter of Revelation we find out that it’s an image of the Antichrist himself.
Why does it say that the image might even speak?
It says it because it was just an idol or a statue that had now come alive!
Gen 2:7 Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
What did TLJC do?
He breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, Gen 2:7.
How does the statue or the idol called the abomination of desolation come alive?
The Image of the Beast will be able to not only speak, but also kill—or cause individuals to be killed somehow.
It will be the ultimate in idolatry: Man worshiping an abominable demon-possessed idol that desolates the world.
The key to understanding this is the fact that the image is related to demons and therefore a sign of demonic power.
The image of the beast refers to the statue that the anti-Christ sets up.
In Daniel 11:31, Daniel writes that it refers to a literal statue or idol that the anti-Christ sets up in the temple during the tribulation period.
Daniel 11:31 “And forces from him will arise, desecrate the sanctuary fortress, and do away with the regular sacrifice. And they will set up the abomination of desolation. – which is a statue representing Satan and the anti-Christ.
In Ezra 9:1-4 it is referred to as a “motionless abomination” or an “appalling abomination”.
The phrase “abomination of desolation” is found in three places in the Book of Daniel, all within the context of the end time Tribulation period; Dan 9:27; 11:31; 12:11.
According to 1 Maccabees 1:54, the abomination that Daniel mentioned was actually erected on the altar of burnt offering.
This statue known as the abomination of desolation is said to be standing, Matt 24:15.
Matt 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),
Matt 24:3 “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
Matt 24:4 “See to it that no one deceives you.”

The issue is — “Where are you?”
Or — “Where do you stand?”
