The Second Signpost – the invasion by Iran of the Middle East – is still coming according to Daniel 7 and 8, as written about in my book Daniel Revisited. One common thread I hear from skeptics is, “The U.S. would never allow Iran to attack and conquer anything.”
And so it was not surprising to see this article in the news this morning where U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry “tried to reassure America’s Arab friends that the United States will not allow them to be attacked ‘from outside,’ in an apparent warning to Iran.”
I would say that is a reasonable assertion based on the past seventy years of American hegemony across the world since World War II. However, as I wrote in this post, that is all about to change with the coming of the Second Signpost. The result will be that the U.S. will no longer be able to successfully project power halfway around the world.
Daniel 8:4 says of the ram who is modern-day Iran, “I watched the ram as he charged toward the west and the north and the south. No animal could stand against him, and none could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.” As I explain in my book in Chapters 6 and 10, the “animals” that could not stand against the ram are the countries which will be in the path of Iran’s attack and occupation.
It doesn’t matter how many people say the U.S. would never allow Iran to attack and invade. Daniel 8:4 says that no one will be able to stop Iran. Daniel 8:4 disagrees with the skeptcis, including the U.S. secretary of state.
