Matthew decrypts Luke: the third and fourth layer.

First notice Matthew 24:15-20 (which speaks of "the abomination of desolation"), specifically on verses 17,18

"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: [vss. 17,18] 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. [End vss.] 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:"

Now notice that Matthew is paralleled by Luke...

"In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back." Luke 17:31

Lastly, notice that Luke surrounds this verse with a "Lot" wrapper.

"Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. ... In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. Remember Lot’s wife." Luke 17:28-32
