Jesus said, “Watch.” I have been watching for years now. And so have many of you. Waiting and wondering, when will Iran run out across the Middle East?
When will our world turn upside-down? When will oil be expensive and gasoline be much harder to come by? When will the Middle East explode in violence and butchery as Iran’s Shia militias race across vast territories of desert, and make IS look like a bunch of amateurs? When will Christians and churches wake up out of their slumber?
Any single day probably has about the same chance as any other for the start of the Second Signpost. The Shemitah didn’t seem to make a difference. But I’ve been considering for a little while now the increased chance with this coming November 9.
It was at the start of June I was asking the Lord in prayer if He might show me how long we have. Do we have days or years? I find sometimes he answers like the encounter I had with the man on the mountain bike. The next day I was watching the news, catching headlines on various channels (it’s a hobby of mine, you know). One thing struck me as odd – on every channel (and I mean every) anchors were saying “five months”, “five months”, “five months to go”, “looks like we have five months.” They were all of course talking about the US Presidential Election coming on November 8. Even so, I don’t remember ever hearing every channel use the same phrase on the same day, like that.
Was this the Lord answering my prayer by chance? Or was it just coincidence? And then it hit me – Donald Trump. He said he would “tear up” the nuclear agreement with Iran. His “I love war” comment reminded me of some of Reagan’s tough-guy rhetoric (which I do miss in this era of doves). If Trump did indeed tear up the nuclear deal, Iran would not get any more of their money for the time being, and Iran could find itself under a microscope.
Is it possible that the Iranian regime might be a bit intimidated by candidate Trump as they were with Reagan? Is it possible that if Trump wins on November 8, the regime might immediately begin the Second Signpost the very next day? This would give Iran two months before the current sitting dovish President is replaced. From the looks of Scripture on the Second Signpost a lot could happen in two months.
Of course if Hillary wins then the Iranian regime has the luxury of time.
But again it might pay to have bought your gold, have the pantry stocked up and your gas tank topped off, on November 7.
