In the New Testament, the word 'abomination' is derived from the Greek word 'bdelugma', which signifies a foul or detestable thing in the sight of God, quite often associated with idolatry. In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus said: "...Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." Luke 16:15, KJV Jesus warned us to watch for the Abomination of Desolation when He said: "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be." Matthew 24:15-21, KJV As the WordWeaver explains in such articles as 'The Seven Heads' and 'The Great Tribulation And The Rapture', it is quite possible that this object may in fact be synonymous with the Image of the Beast mentioned in the Book of Revelation. In other words, it may be some kind of a large statue, or possibly even a computer-generated image of the Beast, which will be placed in the newly-built Jewish Temple in the middle of the Last Seven Years: "And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed." Revelation 13:14,15, KJV
