North Korea? The Second Signpost? What would that rogue nation in the Far East have anything to do with Iran’s great invasion?
Daniel 8:4 says,
“No animal could stand against him, and none could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.”
One of the usual questions many people ask when they hear the Signpost message is, “Wouldn’t the United States prevent Iran from invading the Middle East?” The answer is, if the Signpost interpretation of Scripture is true, than no, the United States will not stop Iran – no one will stop Iran – because Scripture says so right there in Daniel 8:4.
Therefore, the United States, for whatever reason will not stop Iran. The reason could be anything. Maybe American forces would invade Iran and be defeated. Maybe the US would become embroiled in a new civil war. Or maybe the US will become economically disabled.
Or, maybe a tinpot dictator of a relatively small country manages to slip an ICBM through the US’ THAAD defense, causing an EMP off the west coast of America. Such an event would be far more devastating in the long run than a nuclear bomb going off in one of America’s cities.
Yes, the reason could be anything. But when I see statements from Trump when he was reacting to North Korean threats like,
“Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!”
It reminds me of other kings and leaders in world history who said the same kind of things before their own realms fell.
