According to Daniel, the wrath of the End is intimately related to the transgression of the liturgical sacrifice -- to the desecration of the communion offering -- a liturgy he called the 'perpetual sacrifice'.
"It even challenged the power of that army's Prince; it abolished the perpetual sacrifice and overthrew the foundation of his sanctuary, and the army too; it put iniquity on the sacrifice and flung truth to the ground; the horn was active and successful." Dan.8:11-12
"He will make a covenant with many for the space of a week; and, for the space of one-half week he will put a stop to sacrifice and oblation, And, on the wing of the Temple will be the disastrous abomination until the end, until the doom assigned to the devastator." Dan.9:27
"Forces of his will come and profane the sanctuary citadel. They will abolish the perpetual sacrifice and instal the disastrous abomination there." Dan 11:31
"From the moment that the perpetual sacrifice is abolished and the disastrous abomination erected: 1290 days. Blessed is he who stands firm and attains 1335 days." Dan. 12:11
Referring to these and other passages in the Book of Daniel, Jesus revealed that when Antiochus put iniquity on the sacrifice in Jerusalem by installing the desolating sacrilege above the altar in the temple, he initiated an allegory of the end times so momentous that it has no parallel in scripture.
"So when you see the disastrous abomination, of which the prophet Daniel spoke, set up in the Holy Place, then those in Judea must escape to the mountains...for then there will be great distress such as, until now, since the world began, there never has been, nor ever will be again." (Mt.24:15-22).
When the beast who is the focus of this allegory appears and puts his iniquity on God's sacrifice it will bring the harvest to an abrupt end and precipitate the horrifying apocalypse because it will break the treaty of peace Christ made with the world at Calvary Hill.
Isaiah wrote: "The earth is defiled under its inhabitants' feet, for they have transgressed the law, violated the precept, broken the everlasting covenant. So a curse consumes the earth and its inhabitants suffer the penalty, that is why the inhabitants of the earth are burnt up and few men are left." (Is.24:5-6).
