Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple. 1 Cor 3:16,17
In the Watchtower, who rule over those that are God's Temple? It is the elder body at the direction of the Governing Body. Who have the authority to disfellowship the temple priesthood
when in disagreement with the Governing Body? It is the elder body. What does God say about this abomination, this "disgusting thing"?
is the same as the "disgusting thing" standing in a holy place, which IS an "abomination" to God.
This "disgusting thing" also "causes" spiritual "desolation" to the "holy ones"/"holy place"/"holy city"...or, "tramples" them "underfoot" [Matt.24:15;Dan.11:31,36--(2Thess.2:4; 1Cor.3:16); Dan.12:7,11; Rev.11:1,2].
The "abomination" enters the temple sanctuary/holy place (in among the "chosen" ones/anointed) and takes their power away from them/"desolates" (silences/disfellowships/makes impotent as priests).
What is this desolating power? It is identified there at Rev.11:1,2. The "Gentiles". The Bible defines these as spiritual non-"Jews".
are those who have been chosen/anointed (see Rom.2:29). They are
the "Temple"/"holy place" (1Cor.3:16).
Any not anointed,
are spiritual "Gentiles".
So...the "Gentiles" enter in among the "Chosen" ...overcoming them and "throwing them out". This is confirmed at Ezek.44:6,7,8,9; 2Chron.13:9;
Only the few "rebellious" "Jews" at the top (Stewards of the "Temple") who "leave the covenant" (Dan.11:32,33),
bring the Gentiles into the "Temple". These few "Jews" who rule over the Gentiles and lower anointed Priests, are immune to this initial "desolating".
fact, the ruling anointed priests, are the cause of it (Ezek.44:6,7). They have brought the "disgusting thing" into the "holy place"
...to rule over, subdue, "trample underfoot", and "throw out" their fellow priests.
They are using the power of the Gentiles to enforce
their dominance over their fellow anointed slaves (Matt.24:49).
But, only for a time. Soon those Gentiles who take over the "Temple", will also turn on the ruling corrupt over-Priests/Harlot (Lam.1:10; Rev.18:14;17:16), and give her the same treatment that she sanctioned for her fellows (Rev.18:6).
Can you see how this has happened today? The un-anointed "Gentile" elders are throwing out the anointed who do not
worship the "Image" of the Organization (as "spirit directed" Rev.13:15).
These "Gentiles", "stand"/rule over the "Temple"/anointed.
That Organization is made up of "Gentile" elders, with a few unfaithful anointed at the top (Harlots). This merciless
treatment by the Organization against Christ's brothers ("causing desolation"), is the "Wild Beast" of Rev.13, turning on the "two witnesses" Rev.11:7;
as well as the "Locust/Scorpions" under the "fallen star"/"Wormwood",
"stinging" the "unsealed men"
(not yet sealed) in Rev.9:1-10 (Rev.8:10,11).
This is all fulfilled in the wicked steward (Matt.24:48,49,50,51)/Gov.Bdy./Harlot/Wormwood,
who rules over the "Gentile" elders/Wild Beast/Locust-scorpions/abomination/disgusting thing...with all the resulting oppression and expulsion ("desolation"), of the faithful anointed (John16:2)/Holy Place/Holy City/Temple.
It is of vital import, that we now consider Matt.24:15,16 !
When God's own "children" rebelled against him, God compared them
to Sodom (Isa.1:2,10). These are the ones who show no repentance or sense of shame (Isa.3:9). They trample his temple courtyard Isa.1:12 (Rev.11:2). They are bloodguilty -Isa.1:15 (Rev.17:6). Their sins are as scarlet -Isa.1:18; (Rev.17:3,4) Their refusal to repent, brings down the sword Isa.1:16,20;

The word of the Lord came
to me: “Son of man, will you judge her? Will you judge this city of bloodshed? Then confront her with all her detestable practices and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: You city that brings on herself doom by shedding blood in her midst and defiles herself by making idols, you have become guilty because of the blood you have shed and have become defiled by the idols you have made. You have brought
your days to a close, and the end of your years has come. Therefore I will make you an object of scorn to the nations and a laughingstock to all the countries. Those who are near and those who are far away will mock you, you infamous city, full of turmoil. Ezek.
“‘See how each of the princes of Israel who are in you uses his power to shed blood. 7 In you they have treated father and mother
with contempt; in you they have oppressed the foreigner and mistreated the fatherless and the widow. 8 You have
despised my holy things and desecrated my Sabbaths. 9 In you are slanderers who are bent on shedding blood; in you are those who eat
at the mountain shrines and commit lewd acts. Ezek 22:7-9
you are people who accept bribes to shed blood; you take interest and make a profit from the poor. You extort unjust gain
from your neighbors.
And you have forgotten me, declares the Sovereign Lord. Ezek 22:12
“‘You profane and wicked prince of Israel, whose day has come, whose time of punishment has reached its climax, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Take off the turban, remove the crown. It
will not be as it was: The lowly will be exalted and the exalted will be brought low. A ruin! A ruin! I will make it a ruin! The crown will not be restored until he to whom it rightfully belongs shall come; to him I will give it.’ Ezek 21:25-27
