When is the Image Set Up, Where and When Do the Jews Flee, and When is the Mark "666" Forced Upon Men?

The Antichrist cannot set up his image until the middle of the tribulation period, the 70th week of Daniel, because the covenant cannot be broken until the middle of the 70th week (Dan. 9: 27). If the image were set up prior to the middle of this period, the tribulation period (the 70th week of Daniel), the Jews/Hebrews (Israelites) would break this covenant (treaty), before its appointed time, which is the middle of the 70th week, and that cannot be according to Scripture. Besides, if the image were set up before the middle of this period the Jews would realize that the Antichrist was a phony and they would flee into the wilderness before the middle of this period (Matt. 24: 15), the tribulation period (the 70th week of Daniel), and that cannot be according to Scripture. The Jews/Hebrews (Israelites) cannot flee until the middle of the tribulation period, and then on into the beginning of the last half (3½ years, 1260 days) of this period (Matt. 24: 16 - 22). The Antichrist will turn on them in the middle of that period. (See Dan. 9: 27, Matt. 24: 15, II Thes. 2: 4.). He will break the covenant that he made with them (the Jews) in the beginning of this 7 year period, and the Jews will flee for their lives into the wilderness (probably Petra, Jordan) (Rev. chapter 12, KJV). The Antichrist's image, which is also called the Abomination of Desolation (Matt. 24: 15), will be set up in the temple at Jerusalem, and he will cause the temple sacrifice to stop (II Thes. 2: 4). (Read also Dan. 9: 27.). At this point the Antichrist, and the false prophet (Rev. 13: 11 - 18), will try to get the Jews, and the Gentiles also, to worship his image (Rev. 13: 15) as he claims to be God (II Thes. 2: 4). A lot of people will worship the Antichrist and the Devil also (Rev. 13: 4, 8, 12). The Jews/Israelites had already been cured of idolatry. They will never again worship idols (images). (That's one of the reasons God caused them to be scattered all over the earth. See Ezek. 36: 17 - 19, 20 - 25, Deut. 28: 1 - 64, Jer. 19: 4 - 6.).

Many Jews are on earth during the tribulation period. The Antichrist will make a covenant (Dan. 9: 27) with them at the beginning of the tribulation period, the 70th week of Daniel. In the middle of this period the Antichrist will break that covenant (treaty). (Read II Thes. 2: 4, Matt. 24: 15, Dan. 9: 27.). The Antichrist's image will be set up in the temple at Jerusalem. (See Rev. 13: 14 - 15, Matt. 24: 15, II Thes. 2: 4.). He then will order everyone on earth to receive the mark, 666, or be killed (Rev. 13: 16 - 18). As we saw above, the Jews will refuse and therefore must flee during the 5th and 6th seals, which take place at the start of the last 3½ years (1260 days) and on into that period for a short time. The newly saved Gentiles will also face these three issues (the worship of Antichrist, the worship of his image, and the receiving of his mark, 666, and many of them will be killed.). (Read Rev. 6: 9 - 11, 20: 4, 7: 9 - 17.).
