The Bible foretells the coming of an intense 30-day period. Within a one-month interval, the powerful events sequenced below are predicted to happen. This article will separate out and explain the three highlighted ones:
- Antichrist and False Prophet Are Cast into Lake of Fire – (Revelation 19:19-20),
- Satan Bound For 1,000 Years into Bottomless Pit – (Rev. 20:1-3),
- Restoration of the Earth – (Isaiah 65:17 and 2 Peter 3:13),
- Return of the Jewish Remnant – (Zechariah 13:9 and Romans 11:25-26),
- Resurrection of the Old Testament Saints – (Isaiah 26:19 and Daniel 12:2),
- Resurrection of the Tribulation Saints – (Rev. 7:14-15 and 20:4-5),
- Mourning of the Messiah in Israel – (The Thirty Days of Mourning),
- End of the Abomination of Desolation – (The End of The Mark of The Beast),
- Establish the Millennial Temple – (The Fourth and Final Jewish Temple),
- Marriage Supper of The Lamb – (Rev. 19:9).
The Mourning of The Messiah in Israel (The Thirty Days of Mourning)
The passage below explains how the outpouring of the Spirit of grace upon the resurrected Old Testament saint, King David, and also upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem will initiate a period of national mourning in Israel for their Messiah, Jesus Christ.
“And I [Jesus Christ] will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me [Jesus Christ] whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. In that day there shall be a great mourning in Jerusalem, like the mourning at Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo. And the land shall mourn, every family by itself: the family of the house of David by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Levi by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of Shimei by itself, and their wives by themselves; all the families that remain, every family by itself, and their wives by themselves” (Zechariah 12:10-14, NKJV; emphasis added)
These verses imply that prior to this period of national mourning, the Old Testament Saints will have been previously resurrected. This would include the family households of David, Nathan, Levi and Shimei and their respective wives.
This national mourning will likely occur for the duration of the first thirty days of the Seventy-Five Day Interval Period. Thirty days of grieving finds historical precedent in the cases of Moses, a prophet, and his brother Aaron, a priest.
“So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord. And He buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth Peor; but no one knows his grave to this day. Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died. His eyes were not dim nor his natural vigor diminished. And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days. So the days of weeping and mourning for Moses ended” (Deuteronomy 34:5-8).
“Now when all the congregation saw that Aaron was dead, all the house of Israel mourned for Aaron thirty days” (Numbers 20:29).
Jesus Christ has a four-fold ministry. In addition to being a Prophet (1) and a High Priest (2), He is also the KING OF KINGS (3) and LORD OF LORDS (4).
“Then those men, when they had seen the sign that Jesus did, said, ‘This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world’” (John 6:14).
“Where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek” (Hebrews 6:20).
“And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS” (Revelation 19:16).
End of The Abomination of Desolation – (The End of The Mark of The Beast)
Meanwhile, it seems that throughout the national mourning period of Israel above, the Abomination of Desolation that was set up by the Antichrist at the Midpoint of the Tribulation Period is still standing in the Third Jewish Temple. We discover this in the verse below.
“And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days” (Daniel 12:11).
Daniel allots an additional thirty days beyond the end of the Tribulation Period to the Abomination of Desolation (AOD). The AOD is alluded to in Daniel 9:27 and Matthew 24:15. The AOD isn’t removed until thirty days after the Second Coming of Jesus Christ have elapsed. Some believe that the Abomination of Desolation could be the Image of the Beast (Antichrist).
“This act of entering the Holy Place and setting up the image (of the Beast) is most likely what Jesus had in mind as the abomination of desolation.” – Dr. Tony Garland
“The abomination of desolation includes the setting up a statue or image of himself (the Beast) so that he may be worshipped in place of God.” – Dr. Thomas Ice
The continued existence of the Abomination of Desolation will likely intensify those grieving in Israel. On the one hand, the Messiah is dwelling among them, but so is the Image of the Beast and even more troubling, so are those bearing the Mark of the Beast. These are among the unbelievers that will soon be judged and eliminated in the Goat Gentile Judgment of Matthew 25:31-46.
Establish The Millennial Temple – (The Fourth and Final Jewish Temple)
The AOD must be removed and the Third Jewish Temple hosting it needs to be destroyed in order to make way for the coming Millennial Temple. The Millennial Temple will be the fourth and final structural Jewish Temple.
Temple #1, the Solomonic Temple, was destroyed by the Babylonians in 587/586 BC.
Temple #2, the Herodian Temple, was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD.
Temple #3, the Tribulation Temple, seems to get destroyed by Jesus Christ shortly after His Second Coming. This will apparently happen on the 30th day of the 75-Day Interval as per Daniel 12:11.
Temple #4, the Millennial Temple, will get destroyed when the earth flees away at the White Throne Judgment during the Aftermath Age.
Temple #5, will not exist in the Eternal Order as per Rev. 21:22, which says, “But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.”
According to the passages below, The Millennial Temple will be in Jerusalem, and it will serve as the location of the Throne of Messiah.
“At that time Jerusalem shall be called The Throne of the Lord, and all the nations shall be gathered to it, to the name of the Lord, to Jerusalem. No more shall they follow the dictates of their evil hearts” (Jer. 3:17).
“The Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the Lord filled the temple. Then I heard Him speaking to me from the temple, while a man stood beside me. And He said to me, ‘Son of man, this is the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever’” (Ezek. 43:5-7b).
The three major coming events described in this article are just a sample of what happens in what will undoubtedly be the craziest future 30-days on the planet.
- The Mourning of the Messiah,
- The End of the Abomination of Desolation,
- The Establishment of the Millennial Temple.

“To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen” (Revelation 1:6).
“This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, We shall also live with Him. If we endure, We shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us” (2 Timothy 2:11-12).
