Because all the prophesies had to be fulfilled, including the one about the abomination that causes desolation.<quoted text>
You know people KEEP saying that and it keeps NOT happening. How do you know he did not come back 2000 years ago? He did say he would return before the generation passes from the earth.
My 10 year old autistic son told me what the abomination is. He said it very slowly, a bomb a nation.
The time must be drawing near for His return, I think.
