O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

Who was the abomination of desolation that stood in the holy place (Matthew 24 : 15), Roman armies or Jewish Zealots ?

In view of what Jesus said, 'Where the dead body is, there the vultures will gather,'  it seems reasonable to conclude that Jerusalem was dead by the time Rome sent Titus.  The Herodian Dynasty ruled 100 yrs or so before the destruction, and being Esau's descendants, they were certainly vultures.  They sold the priesthood to the highest bidder.  


Thank you for your comment.  I agree with you. In 68 CE, there was growing unrest in Jerusalem. Ananus ben Ananus incited the people to rise up against the Zealots, who were robbing the people and using the Temple of Jerusalem as their base of operations. Ben Hanan began to recruit for armed conflict. The Zealots, who were quartered in the Temple, learned that ben Hanan was preparing for battle, and sallied forth, attacking all in their way. Ben Hanan quickly organized the people against them. The skirmish began with the belligerents throwing rocks at one another, then javelins, then finally hand-to-hand combat with swords ensued. Eventually the Zealots retreated to the inner court of the Temple, and 6,000 of ben Hanan's men held the first (outer) court.

The Roman Army, as other Armies that came in Judgement against the Israel sons of Darkness in history past, can be reffered to as The Arm/Sword of The Lord, to carry out The Judgements on The Land, The People and The Place.
