What might the supreme leader and IRGC commanders be thinking and planning in order to carry out the Second Signpost, the invasion by Iran of the Middle East prophesied in Daniel 7 and 8? That question has come to my mind from time to time. Of course the Bible only tells us it will happen – not when, or how. But we might have part of an answer in a video that came out on January 7 on YouTube.
A reader saw a video on Walid’s site, which was posted January 15. I decided to go to the originating site on Youtube and do some digging. Apparently someone used an Iranian video company, Kosar3d.com, to produce a 5-minute computer-game-style video of a massive Iranian rocket attack on the Saudis’ main oil field (picture) and several airbases. It was placed on the ghasednews.com website, which is an IRGC propaganda site.
Of course the bomb blasts are on the scale of atomic bombs but produce no mushroom cloud, and other liberties are taken, but it portrays – even if the IRGC is fractionally successful as shown – a massive and frightening first strike to get the Second Signpost going.
Most commentators will say this is a portrayal of an Iranian attack on Saudi Arabia, but, no, this would be bigger: this would be the Second Signpost. An attack like this shows, as the Bible says, the Iranian attack will indeed be like a ram butting outward (Dan. 8), and it will take peace from the earth (Rev. 6) in the first few moments. We cannot know how Iran will cut off the oil and cut off sales in US dollars, but blowing up the entire Ghawar oilfield would indeed be effective. The Ghawar field is why Saudi Arabia can out-produce every other country in the world in the current drive to lower prices. By far the largest field in the world, if placed on the eastern seaboard of the USA it would stretch from New York City to Baltimore (150 miles), have a width a bit less than that of Long Island, and be 300 feet thick. I doubt Iranian rocket forces could pull off an attack like this, but it makes one wonder what might be in the realm of possibility, or audacity on the part of the IRGC.
Can you imagine the worldwide panic that would happen from such an event? In its invasion Iran would require a few days to take over 25% of the world oil supply causing all sorts of worldwide economic and logistical problems. Ghawar, however, producing over half of Saudi Arabia’s daily production of ten million barrels, if knocked out not only would take 7% of the world oil supply out immediately, but if the destruction that occurs reflects what’s in the video it won’t be repaired and brought back on line until after Christ returns. It would be permanent in light of the Signposts to follow. Iran, through shock and awe of its own, would begin the Second Signpost effectively.
Could this video just be some IRGC commanders’ dreams of the Second Signpost? Or might it reflect some reality of the first few moments of the Second Signpost?
