The Abomination of Desolation

(Daniel 12:7-11)

The angel in linen raised His hands and swore by Him who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and half a time, until all was finished.1Dan 12:7 This was rounded to 1290 days, forty-three months of thirty days on the Jewish lunar calendar, from the time that the abomination of desolation was established.2Dan 12:11

The Second Council of Rome, 193, and the Council of Ephesus, 193, are mentioned in Eusebius, Church History, Book 5.23; The Orthodox Church reports this explanation of events in one of its timelines:

193 – Council of Rome, presided over by bishop Victor, condemns the celebration of Pascha on Nisan 14, and addresses a letter to Polycrates of Ephesus and the Churches in Asia.

193 – Council of Ephesus, presided over by bishop Polycrates, and attended by several bishops throughout Asia, reject the authority of Victor of Rome, and keep the Asian paschal tradition (Markou, Stavros L. K. An Orthodox Christian Historical Timeline. Copyright © 2003

193 is the date universally recognized by the Library of Congress, Catholic Library Association, etc.

the bishop of Rome committed the sin that caused desolation when he exalted himself as high as Christ. He excommunicated the churches of Asia because they rejected his doctrine of Easter Sunday. The place of God’s sanctuary was cast down—the spirit of truth was taken away. The saints remained in Satan’s hand for exactly three and a half years, or 1278 days as years, until the Moravian Church broke free from his power in 1471.
