Readers of my book and blog know that I have said before that the next imminent event is a “shuffling” in the government of Iran where the supreme leader will be made second in command, with a new office taking over as first in command. This shuffling would give us fair warning of the main event of the Second Signpost, i.e. the great invasion. Well, no more.
I have come to the conclusion that while each of the two horns of the ram represent two individual leaders, just as the first horn of the goat, and the four horns of the goat do, an “office” is not needed. The horns represent something more generic such as positions of power. A position of power can be supported by an official office as in the supreme leader’s case. But it can also include, say, a general of the military, who is supported by his forces. This is not as “official” but it exists and it is power nonetheless.
I looked up, and there before me was a ram with two horns, standing beside the canal, and the horns were long. One of the horns was longer than the other but grew up later. (Daniel 8:3, NIV)
After more research and study I have come to the conclusion that we have already seen the second horn grow. The First Signpost with the appearance of Saddam Hussein and the democratizing of Iraq over the last 33 years was a warning from God in His Word that the “bad” Signposts (Second, Third, Fourth) were going to start. And where I thought the second horn forming an office was the sign that the Second Signpost invasion by Iran was about to strike, no, the second horn has been growing up right in front of our faces. The IRGC grew up in those 33 years also, from just a bodyguard for Khomeini to a power that controls the Iranian economy, military, security. It was there for anyone to see if they knew what they were looking for.
Yes, the IRGC could use the office of president and elevate it. Yes, the IRGC could create a formal office that is new. But I am doubting it now. Commanders Suleimani of the Quds Force and Jafari of the (non-Quds part of the) IRGC answer to no one but supreme leader Khamenei. It is either of these men in these positions who have the power that may already exceed the supreme leader.
The two horns of the ram have always been together. The supreme leader and IRGC have always had this partnership since 1979. The IRGC won’t let anything happen to the supreme leader, and the supreme leader needs the IRGC for reinforcement. The power of the IRGC just had to grow up, catch up and exceed the power of the supreme leader. And we may never know when that exactly happens. And some authors believe it has already taken place.
So the next imminent event is not a shuffling in Iran, it is the invasion itself. We saw the warning over the last 33 years. While the First Signpost was going on, the second horn was growing and readying for the Second Signpost.
I ask my readers for forgiveness in not seeing this sooner. After reaching this conclusion my conscience demanded I ‘fess up and ask forgiveness. But there you have it. To me this is frightening because now the invasion has been moved up in the “queue” to “imminent.” Possibly the only way to know how close we might be is when Iran gets nukes or if the U.S. or Israel start an attack. And that invasion will change the world and set it on the path in the years leading to the Tribulation. Be ready. It will change the economy of the world not just due to the elevated price of oil and a shortage of it, but also the U.S. dollar will be headed for oblivion.
Spreading the message to your brothers, sisters, friends, and pastors has now become much more important.
I’ll be putting out another announcement regarding the book today or tomorrow. I will also review old posts on this blog and move the ones talking about waiting for the second horn to finish growing to an archives page.
