Revelation 13:14 – …telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.
As discussed in the last section, the false prophet will deceive those who dwell on the earth by great signs and wonders, and cause them to worship the beast after his resurrection from the dead. In apparent homage to the resurrected beast, the false prophet directs the world to make an image to the beast. The image made to the beast is probably the “abomination” that causes desolation which will stand in the temple:
Matthew 24:15 – ‘Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand)…”
The word “abomination” refers to a detestable or accursed thing, usually ascribed to idols in Scripture. As discussed in Revelation 13:4, the “abomination of desolation” was that the ruler of the Seleucid Empire, Antiochus Epiphanes, defiled the temple by sacrificing a pig on the altar. He also set up a statue of a Greek god in the place of the Most Holy.
The “abomination of desolation” of the temple has not happened again since Christ reiterated Daniel’s prophecy in His “Olivet Discourse.” Many believe the beast will set up the idol made in his image in the temple just as Antiochus Epiphanes set up an idol when he desecrated the temple in the second century B.C.
