If you will take the time to read the book, Hidden In Plain Sight, or read the articles on this blog, and study your Bible, you will learn the truth behind the world events we are about to witness. You will learn that the theology of the End Time Signposts isn’t just matching world events to Bible passages or just some hand-waving like so many prophecy “experts” have done in the past. There is real and documented world history to shed light on what the Bible is saying of our times – the end times – and there are logical steps for the derivation of the interpretation showing the unsealing of Daniel. We are about to see a series of events in the Middle East that will result in increasingly harder trials for the world and the church. These are the times the church will go through leading up to the Tribulation. They are being set. But embedded in these hard times to come, there will be great opportunity for revival.
The Book of Daniel is now being unsealed. Are you watching? Do you understand what you are seeing? Are you ready spiritually and physically for what is about to happen? Please believe me when I say that if you believe the Antichrist will be a European and that the visions of Daniel chapters 7 and 8 are fulfilled in ancient times and not in the end times, then you cannot understand. You cannot see the unsealing. The breaking of the seals of the scroll in Revelation is the unsealing of the scroll of Daniel, part by part, seal by seal. Four seals; four beasts; the four signposts. The first seal was broken, the first signpost came and went, and Iraq and its leader played their part in the unsealing of Daniel here in the end times.
And now the second seal is about to be broken. The ram is about to charge out. The bear is about to run about and consume. The rider of the red horse is about to be given his sword. The supreme leader of Iran is about to be made second in power in that country. The Basij were earlier engaged in a military exercise called “Beyt al–Moghadas” (“Toward Jerusalem”). Ahmadinejad has been telling us in his U.N. speeches for years what he has in mind. When the Basiji of Iran finally run out towards Jerusalem and towards the north and south, and occupy many of the capitals cities in the Middle East such as Riyadh, Baghdad, Kuwait City, Doha and Abu Dhabi, and occupy the oilfields and cut off the flow of that oil, you will be wondering what all this means. With the oil physically cut off from these fields the immediate price hike in oil will make providing the necessities of life even more difficult than they already are. It will also be the missing black swan event that will take down the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency adding more misery for those in the U.S.
You may wonder when you see Iran occupy much of the Middle East, “surely the end is here and the Tribulation is about to start.” But the answer is “no”, for Jesus specifically talked about these events written of in Daniel, which are marked by continual war, prior to the Tribulation when Jesus said in Matthew 24:6, “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come” And of these wars, and of the Tribulation, and of His own coming as a series of events in Matthew 24, Jesus said in Matthew 24:34, “I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.” That generation started in 1979 with the appearance of Iraq’s now deceased leader.
So as Jesus our Lord says, do not be alarmed. The end is getting nearer but it is not yet. We must watch and endure three more seals being broken prior to the start of the Tribulation. But to understand we are seeing the preceding events to Christ’s coming, and that the end is not here yet, one must be willing to learn and be open. One must be willing to cast off the notion of a Roman Antichrist and be willing to allow true history to shed light on prophetic passages and see the arguments of why the Antichrist will be Muslim.
And after learning these things, you, in turn, as a brother or sister following Christ, must spread the word to your brothers and sisters and pastors. We have centuries of traditional thinking that must be changed in a relatively short time. With the proper recognition of the unsealing of Daniel, the opportunity for showing the world that the Word of God is talking about events today and showing all of us that Christ’s glorious coming is near, is right now, and will continue for only a few more years.
The Book of Daniel is now being unsealed. Are you watching? Do you understand what you are seeing? Are you ready?

Great post Mark~! Keep it coming. Thank you.
Indeed! James is correct. With the re-election of Obama, a very weak, leftist ideologue; Iran feels even more embolden to challenge the West, especially, the United States. What better way to do that than to seize what is most precious to the West…Middle East oil, as Mark suggests. My personal opinion is it will be within the next Obama term and along with that it is the learned opinion of former UN Ambassador John Bolton that Iran will obtain nuclear weapons within the second term of Obama as well starting an insane nuclear weapons race within the Middle East nations for oil together with nuclear weapons are a dangerous cocktail. Mark’s urgency in tone regarding the second Rider of the Apocalypse soon to ride is a very stern warning to serious prophecy students to pay attention and spread the word to fellow believers and pastor-teachers. Mark, please continue to beat the drum of urgency, it is not for nothing. It will be heeded, God will see to it.
Our response must not just be to know, but to be ready, and to be willing to be God’s witnesses of Jesus and His love to the world. But we need to be doing that, even if we are not up on prophecy. However, I understand this as encouragement in our task. God bless us to carry out His work, in His time, and His way, by His grace, for His glory. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Excellent work you’ve done here Mark, and praise God He’s pouring out understanding in these last days to strengthen the body of Christ. I have a question which you may have covered and I can’t find the answer for. Have you identified where the seven sealings of prophecy occur which are being opened by our Lord? Are there seven? Without reading all of Scripture I don’t know. There’s the scroll which John is instructed to eat and is sweet in his mouth and bitter in his stomach. Is that one, do you think? Do the seven scrolls opened by the Lamb correspond to seven instances of prophecy being sealed in Scripture? If so, it could perhaps provide us insight about each of the seven scrolls in Revelation. If you’ve covered this question, my apologies.
I’m enjoying your book immensely and look forward to following your work. It’s excellent that you are humble enough to frame this as a theory, not dogma. I’m also grateful to be able to correspond to you before you become so busy evangelising and teaching, as you no doubt will. God bless you.
Good to hear from you, and thank you for your kind words.
On to your questions.
Q: “Have you identified where the seven sealings of prophecy occur which are being opened by our Lord? Are there seven?”
A: Revelation chapters 5 and 6 tell us there are seven seals on one scroll – the scroll held by the Lamb. In my book I show how the first four seals each are associated with a horseman and therefore each with one of the Four Signposts. Where I stop, Revelation goes on; the fifth is at the time of the Tribulation. The sixth is the Second Coming. The seventh is God’s wrath – trumpets and bowls.
Each seal being broken is a “revealing” of the next stage of God’s plan. You might want to read all of Revelation if you haven’t already. The Lamb unseals only one scroll, with seven seals. I believe the first four being unsealed is Daniel’s chapter 7 becoming unsealed – that is in the Introduction to my book.
We have entered the “age to come” foretold by Jesus in Mark 10:30, the Glorious Manifestation of Our King, Lord, and Savior Jesus Christ. (the Harmonious Gospel of Saint Mark, chapter 10, verse 30)

The link you provided has a lot of predictions but steeped in Roman Catholic tradition and doctrine rather than the Bible itself. This website presents an interpretation of end-time prophecy from the Bible. There are four events to occur prior to Christ’s return. The first happened – Iraq’s government was to change. The second is about to happen – Iran will run out and invade and occupy much of the Middle East. Hidden In Plain Sight is no longer in print, but Daniel Revisited has replaced it and is available.
Welcome to this site. The link you provided has a lot of predictions but all steeped in Roman Catholic tradition and doctrine. This website presents an end-time interpretation based solely on the Bible. Hidden in Plain Sight is no longer in print, but Daniel Revisited has replaced it.
This website’s interpretation shows us four events to happen in the Middle East prior to Christ’s return. The first occurred – Iraq’s government was changed in 2003-2005. The second event is about to happen – Iran’s invasion and occupation of much of the Middle East.
You might appreciate the fact that this website and book teaches that in no way can the Antichrist be Roman, based on Scripture, but will be a Syrian Arab Muslim. Islam is the only religion that denies Jesus is the Son of God.
