The Second Signpost Won’t be Just Some Event Far Away

The Second Signpost is the invasion by Iran of most of the Middle East. It’s next in Bible prophecy. Iranian forces will take control of the Mideast oil. The Persian ram will run to the south from Susa, and the second horseman will take peace of mind from the earth. The Second Signpost will put the whole world on the path to the Tribulation. The oil supply is global. A shortage in one country will result in a ripple effect in price all through the world.

Iran and oil

Do not just wait to see if it happens. If you wait to see if it happens it will be too late. It will be too late to make any preparations. If you live in the United States, it will be too late to buy precious metals for barter, or things like garden tools to start a garden, to help get you through the rough patch while the US dollar withers away in value before a new currency is introduced. It will be too late to convert all those dollars withering away in your bank account to acquire something more useful.

Edwin Black, investigative author, wrote The Plan: How to Rescue Society the Day the Oil Stops–or the Day Before, which addresses what could happen and what might be done if the oil spigot is shut off in a place like the refineries and tanker loading facilities in the Persian Gulf. This is of course something that would happen when Iran runs south into the Gulf. What Edwin Black writes at the start of his book could be the situation when Iranian forces occupy the oil fields,

“When the oil stops, the news will appear like a mushroom cloud in the distance, towering and terrifying, yet intangible. But like a fiery orange atomic explosion unfurling in slow motion, the concussive blast will soon reach us all. Then, the fallout will hit in protracted waves of misery.

First the truckers and shippers will curtail shipments. Shelves will become scant and in some cases bare. Quickly, unemployment will become epidemic as people are laid off due to economic contraction or because many will simply be unable to get to work. That in turn will worsen the country’s economic convulsion. Mobile America will cease to exist as we knew it because transportation via automobiles, taxis, buses, planes and other vehicular traffic will become an ever more affordable luxury. When people cannot get from Point A to Point B, the nation’s economic vitality will quickly wither. Sudden pauperization – loss of employment, savings and home – will follow…”

Countries such as France, Germany, and Italy will see the price of their oil supply skyrocket. Countries such as Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan will see much worse because the very oil they import is mostly the oil coming from the very fields that Iran would occupy.

To repeat his words, I believe Black described perfectly the shock that many throughout the world will see on that day the second horseman takes peace from the earth, “When the oil stops, the news will appear like a mushroom cloud in the distance…Then, the fallout will hit in protracted waves of misery.”

Do not just wait around to see if it will happen. Learn the Signpost message. Realize that the next event is not just far away. It will be in your face.

  1. “And according to a report published in Al-Quds Al-Arabi, hundreds of thousands of Iranians are crossing into Iraq via its ports without passports stamped with entry visas, ostensibly to visit Shiite holy sites. Is this mass relocation being carried out in preparation for Iran to launch a surprise? The fear is the Iranians (perhaps with a green light from Moscow) are positioning Iranian Revolutionary Guard forces, Iranian foot soldiers and Shiite militias in preparation of a terrorist attack.”

    If this about “hundreds of thousands” is true, the hour is late indeed. But it also maybe an exaggeration by the Saudi’s. Which in itself would be a signal too: of alarm and fear.

    I regularly read these comments on the English Al Arabiyah by high-profiled Saudi’s like Al Habtoor and Khashoggi (the latter being close to the Royal house of Saudi Arabia). And I daresay their comments are of recent becoming more concerned, more patriottic, calling for action, for more unity. And against division in the ranks of the Sunni sates, which is not really there of course, just enemy propaganda…

    All this comes across to me as growing despair – which would indicate that Iranian preparations for the invasion have become serious indeed.

  2. Adamant,
    Interesting. Another possible way the Second Signpost could kick off. Thanks for the link.

  3. Here is an interesting analysis of Putin’s “checkmate” of himself:

  4. All Glory to God

    We all need to watch this very closely

    “Many hard-line Shiites in Iraq see Turkey as a leading player in the Sunni Muslim axis against Shiite Iranian interests in Iraq”.

    The emergence of the King of North (Turkey) and the King of the South (Iran) is now complete.

    God Bless

  5. Curtis,
    I will have to disagree with you on this. The kings of the north and south will not be seen until the Fourth Signpost. I will be addressing this topic in my new book. Therefore, the emergence of the king of the north and king of the south has not even started.

  6. Mark,

    I respect your opinion. Check this link out

    A quote from Erdogan

    In the Al Jazeera interview, Erdogan also said that Iraq and Iran’s governments pursue sectarian policies both in Syria and Iraq.

    “What will happen to Sunnis? There are Sunni Arabs, Sunni Turkmen and Sunni Kurds? What will happen to their security? They need sense of security,” Erdogan said, criticising the Shia-dominated Iraqi government…”.

    Seems Erdogan sees himself as the Chief of the Sunnis

    God Bless

  7. Curtis,
    Yes, Erdoğan’s views per your link, confirm he is the leading candidate for the goat’s horn. Where the Second Signpost will radically change the Middle East, so it will again at the start of the Fourth, where there are only four countries in all the Mideast (Israel excepted), and that is the time for the kings of the north and south.

  8. I wonder what will happen to countries like Australia and New Zealand that has their own oil rigs and can supply their own needs ?

  9. Mark

    I agree with you that Erdogan is most likely the great horn


  10. Erdogan: “There is no question of withdrawal of our troops from Iraq,” Baghdad: “This is an invasion”

    Last week, 150 Turkish soldiers and 25 tanks entered the area of ​​the northern Iraqi province of Nineveh. Soon came a fierce reaction Baghdad who asked to Turkish forces withdraw immediately. Turkey argues that they have a right to be there and to help local Kurdish, Peshmerga, forces.

    Now with regard to this situation sounded and Turkish President Erdogan, stressing that “no question” that the Turkish forces to withdraw. “Our troops went to Iraq as advisors, the mission is confined to training,” said Erdogan while Baghdad Turkish incursion called “invasion”.

    VIDEO: report on the Turkish military incursion into Iraq

    “There is no question that Turkey will, at this time, to withdraw its troops from Iraq,” said Erdogan. He did not mention any possibility of eventual talks with the Iraqi authorities in this regard, however, said that on the 21st of this month hold a trilateral meeting between officials from Turkey, the US and the regional government of Iraqi Kurdistan.

  11. Hello HT,

    I wonder too what would happen to specific countries.
    Australia supplies most of its own oil (it supplied all of its own maybe 20 years ago), so it would have to ration, etc, but the price will still go up. With no USA to help, Australia might eventually find itself under the thumb of China. The Chinese economy, if allowed to continue and grow, will still need Australian base metals.
    New Zealand worries me. It produces enough oil for its own needs, but sadly, it sells most of its oil and imports different oil because its refineries are set up for another grade of crude. If NZ leadership would get the refineries changed to handle their own oil, they might be ok, but as it stands now they will need to compete in the global market place for the oil it gets just like it does now.

  12. Curtis,
    And the great horn of the goat, and the king of the north are two different people.

  13. Zoran,
    This event of Turkey invading Iraq by itself is only noise. But the implication is that it is data confirming the imperial ambition of Erdoğan. When Iran invades Turkish territory in the Second Signpost, Turkey will not hesitate to invade Iran in the Third.

  14. Mark, you already expected that Iran would not neatly obey the recent Nuclear Agreement (JCPOA), as you wrote in earlier posts. Despite some recent news reports that Iran is keeping the agreement, and even that now is “proven” that Iran in had abandoned its nuclear bomb program years ago, here is something to the contrary, proving your point:

    “Iran has repeatedly test-fired long-range ballistic missiles and laser-guided surface-to-surface missiles. In October and November, just after the nuclear deal was reached, the Islamic Republic tested a new ballistic missile capable of carrying multiple warheads. This was in breach of two U.N. Security Council resolutions and JCPOA.”

    “Iran’s ballistic capability is one of the most critical pillars of Tehran’s national security policy. Aside from managing Iran’s nuclear program, and supporting its proxies, the third important program of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is its ballistic missile program.
    Surpassing Israel, Iran possesses the largest and most diverse ballistic missile program in the Middle East. No country, other than Iran, has acquired long range ballistic missiles before obtaining nuclear weapons. This makes the IRGC one of the most formidable military institutions in the region. Ballistic missiles can be used for offensive or defensive purposes, but sophisticated missiles are mainly developed as delivery vehicles for nuclear weapons.
    Tehran’s ballistic missiles can hit any country in the Middle East. But Iranian leaders are not satisfied with this capability and are looking to expand.”

    Especially this quote “sophisticated missiles are mainly developed as delivery vehicles for nuclear weapons” is important. They can be used with conventional payloads, but this would not justify the enormous investments in them. Only use with nuclear (and/or maybe biological) payloads would justify the investments.

  15. Hello Mark,

    As a history buff, I want to recommend the book and the DVD by Kelvin Crombie, Gallipoli — The Road to Jerusalem. He gives tremendous historical background to the break-up of the Ottoman Empire, and the subsequent state of affairs now coming out of the Middle East. The victory of the Allies in the WW1 Palestine/Middle East Campaign was one of the bright spots of a horribly destructive war, and which brought about the establishment of God’s Word to return the Jewish people back to their homeland. This, as we know, is what has lit the fire that is raging out of control today. Jerusalem was surrendered by the Turks 98 years ago yesterday, during the Jewish Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah), which is being celebrated today.

  16. Forgot to add Kelvin Crombie’s link to his site:

  17. More chess pieces on the great chess board are being put in their right places…
    Saudi Arabia today has formed an anti-terror military alliance of no less than 34 states.

    “The 34 countries participating in the alliance along with Saudi Arabia are: Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Benin, Turkey, Chad, Togo, Tunisia, Djibouti, Senegal, Sudan, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Gabon, Guinea, Palestine, Comoros, Qatar, Cote d’Ivoire, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Maldives, Mali, Malaysia, Egypt, Morocco, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Yemen.”

    All members of the alliance are Sunni states with one exception, Bahrain.
    Some of them are not so powerful, but Turkey is, as is Pakistan.

    “Asked if the new alliance would focus just on Islamic State, bin Salman (Crown Prince and defense minister) said it would confront not only that group but “any terrorist organization that appears in front of us.””

    This makes very clear that the alliance is not just anti-ISIS but (mainly?) anti-Iran.
    The fact that Turkey is included, which is not very anti-ISIS, to say the least, says a lot too.

    “Germany’s defence minister said on Tuesday she welcomed Saudi Arabia’s announcement.”

    We already know that Russia, and to an extent China, are backing Iran.
    Now it will be interesting to see how much real European and/or American support there will be for this anti-Iran alliance… If any…
    If this alliance counters ISIS it will be according to the wishes of the US Government, that has called for more regional support against ISIS for a long time.
    What US Goverment thinks of the anti-Iran aspect remains to be seen.

    In Dutch government is concerned that this alliance will lead to increased tension between Sunni’s and Shia’s. Rightly so, I think. These tensions are already noticeable in the European refugee camps.

    In other news media I read that the alliance will act from Riyadh as center, and that using ground troops is being considered.

  18. Adamant,
    Of that list of nations, it really comes down to only Turkey and perhaps Egypt. Pakistan is tied up with India. All the other nations are too poor or weak to mount any attack of enough size. Those two nations will be the mainstay of the coming Sunni Confederacy.
    Thanks for the link.
