Found Written in the Book

Daniel 12:1-2:
Now at that time Michael, the great prince who stands guard over the sons of your people, will arise. And there will be a time of distress such as never occurred since there was a nation until that time; and at that time your people, everyone who is found written in the book, will
be rescued.
And many of those who sleep in the dust of the ground will awake, these to everlasting life, but the thers to disgrace and everlasting contempt.

Again, this has happened or the Law is still in effect.

Plus, we have:

Daniel 12:10  Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

11  And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

12  Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

13  But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.

And, from the New Testament:

Matthew 24:15  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:)

Jesus is interpreting Daniel here. He’s talking about the very same thing and even says it came from Daniel.

And:

Matthew 24:30  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31  And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

32  ¶Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

33  So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

34  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

Jesus says that the abomination of desolation that Daniel talked about being when people would be resurrected and judged would come on some who were living right at that time. That's powerful. Now, the question is, is it going to happen again? If so, where is the prophecy? We know that Daniel said it and Jesus reiterated it and said it would happen in that generation. But do we see it prophesied to happen again? Is Jesus coming a THIRD time?
