Jesus said: "So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’[a] spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— " Matthew 24:15

This is an important sign of the end times.

In Luke, the matter is stated like this: “When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near." Luke 21:20

So we know that the "holy place" is Jerusalem. And we know that "the abomination that causes desolation" is an entity that has armies.
So what is the abomination? Let's take a look at what Daniel said...

Daniel had a vision of 4 beasts:
"Daniel said: “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven churning up the great sea. 3 Four great beasts, each different from the others, came up out of the sea.

“The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a human being, and the mind of a human was given to it.

“And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear. It was raised up on one of its sides, and it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. It was told, ‘Get up and eat your fill of flesh!’

“After that, I looked, and there before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard. And on its back it had four wings like those of a bird. This beast had four heads, and it was given authority to rule.

“After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns." Daniel 7:2-7

And in the interpretation of this vision, we find that the 4th beast is a kingdom.

“He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom." Daniel 7:23-24

The 4th beast is the iron beast, which crushes the world beneath its feet. It has dominion over 10 kings and there has never been a kingdom like it.
There is one "kingdom" in the world today, which has crushed the world under its feet. A "kingdom," which has spread its power and influence all over. A "kingdom" unlike anything that has existed in the world before.
The 4th beast is the United States of America
It is fittingly called the "iron beast" because America's military industrial complex has spread weaponry throughout the entire globe.

America is the world's most prolific arms supplier by far and is regarded as the most powerful nation in the world.

US Military bases

Now, if we consider current events, the truth becomes clear. The "abomination that causes desolation" is now standing in the "holy place" - the city of Jerusalem
Just a few years ago, Donald Trump shocked the world when he moved the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Along with the US Embassy, came American Armed Forces in the holy city of Jerusalem.

Donald Trump has received widespread praise amongst zionist politicians for his actions, with many comparing Trump to Cyrus the Great.

Why is that? Cyrus the Great ordered rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem after it had been destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar. Today, zionists believe Trump is enacting policies that will allow them to do the same thing. They are trying to build the 3rd temple.

The biggest obstacle in all of this is the presence of Islamic holy sites on the temple mount - the Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa Mosque. But Trump is paving the way for to eliminate these obstacles. In 2020, Trump announced a new "peace plan" for Palestine and Israel.

Trump's plan essentially removes the Palestinians from the holy city of Jerusalem...

...thus paving the way for Israel to do whatever they want with the temple mount.

You may wonder: why is it so important to the zionists to rebuilt the temple? The answer is simple. They believe when the temple is rebuilt, their Moshiach will appear. And that is another fulfilment of Jesus' statement about the end times.

He said: "Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many." Matthew 24:4-5

The prophecies of Jesus are coming to pass before our eyes. The hour is near...

Could this verse also refer to The Kingdom of America in the Revelation Chapter 13 as the beast who have been given authority by the dragon over every tribes, nations and etc.? It have two beasts mentioned in the verses. The second beast could it be the America since it mentioned about the mark of the beast and have the same authority as the first beast and is the first beast is the ancient Rome at the time of Nero?

13And the dragon stood on the
shore of the sea.

2
And I saw a beast coming out of the
sea. He had ten horns and seven heads,
with ten crowns on his horns, and on
each head a blasphemous name. The
beast I saw resembled a leopard, but
had feet like those of a bear and a
mouth like that of a lion. The dragon
gave the beast his power and his throne
and great authority.
3
One of the heads of the beast seemed
to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal
wound had been healed. The whole
world was astonished and followed the
beast.
4
Men worshiped the dragon because he
had given authority to the beast, and
they also worshiped the beast and
asked, "Who is like the beast? Who can
make war against him?"
5
The beast was given a mouth to utter
proud words and blasphemies and to
exercise his authority for forty-two
months.
6
He opened his mouth to blaspheme
God, and to slander his name and his
dwelling place and those who live in
heaven.
7
He was given power to make war
against the saints and to conquer them.
And he was given authority over every
tribe, people, language and nation.
8
All inhabitants of the earth will worship
the beast--all whose names have not
been written in the book of life belonging
to the Lamb that was slain from the
creation of the world.
9
He who has an ear, let him hear.
10If anyone is to go into captivity, into
captivity he will go. If anyone is to be
killed with the sword, with the sword he
will be killed. This calls for patient
endurance and faithfulness on the part
of the saints.
11Then I saw another beast, coming out
of the earth. He had two horns like a
lamb, but he spoke like a dragon.
12He exercised all the authority of the
first beast on his behalf, and made the
earth and its inhabitants worship the first
beast, whose fatal wound had been
healed.
13And he performed great and
miraculous signs, even causing fire to
come down from heaven to earth in full
view of men.
14Because of the signs he was given
power to do on behalf of the first beast,
he deceived the inhabitants of the earth.
He ordered them to set up an image in
honor of the beast who was wounded by
the sword and yet lived.
15He was given power to give breath to
the image of the first beast, so that it
could speak and cause all who refused
to worship the image to be killed.
16He also forced everyone, small and
great, rich and poor, free and slave, to
receive a mark on his right hand or on
his forehead,

17so that no one could buy or sell unless
he had the mark, which is the name of
the beast or the number of his name.
18This calls for wisdom. If anyone has
insight, let him calculate the number of
the beast, for it is man's number. His
number is 666.
