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.
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.
