Second Signpost Rhetoric Continues at the UN

Last week was the annual meeting of nations at the UN in New York where leaders from around the world make their speeches. This is the venue at which former Iranian president Ahmadinejad would annually speak about the coming al-Mahdi, our Antichrist.

This time, president Trump spoke on September 19, and Rouhani, the president of Iran, followed with his speech the next day on September 20.

Trump and Rouhani give their speeches at the UN last week. Trump: “We cannot let a murderous regime continue . . .” Rouhani: But “we’re in no need of conquests.” Couldn’t help but notice both leaders are wearing the same colors.

In each leader’s speech, the rhetoric is alive and well, unbeknownst to many, as signs of the Second Signpost.

Rouhani’s Speech

Starting with Rouhani’s speech, he said,

“We in Iran strive to build peace and promote the human rights of peoples and nations.”

Hmm. Sounds like another one of the lies spoken by the regime of the ayatollahs. Rouhani went on,

“We never condone tyranny and we always defend the voiceless.”

Not so; another lie. The regime’s very existence shows they condone tyranny. Rouhani then said,

“Some have claimed to have wanted to deprive Iran of nuclear weapons, weapons that we have continuously and vociferously rejected. And of course, we are not and were not distressed to be thwarted from an action that we never sought.”

Right. That’s why the nuclear agreement gives Iran 24 days’ notice to allow in inspectors from allied countries like Russia, China, and neutral Germany. There are no inspectors from the UK or USA included in the agreement.

Well, if Rouhani gives a speech with these lies, what other things might be taken as lies? Maybe it’s where he said,

“Iran does not seek to restore its ancient empire, impose its official religion on others, or export its revolution through the force of arms.”

That’s a lie, too. Iran’s regime does NOT want to force its revolution on any one? If it blatantly lies about nuclear weapons and tyranny as we saw above, can we believe anything that is said?

Rouhani continued,

“We are so confident in the depth of our culture, the truth of our face, and tenacity and longevity of our revolution that we will never seek to export any of them in the way neocolonialists do with the heavy boots of soldiers.”

Who said anything about the “heavy boots” of soldiers? He reminds me of a small child, or anyone else who is not very good at lying: “No, no, we’re not going to spread our revolution. We’re not going to do that with boots on the ground or even heavy boots on the ground. And we never sought nuclear weapons.”

Rouhani finished his thought with,

“We therefore are in no need of conquests.”

Who says that at the UN? “We don’t need to conquer anybody?” No one says that. Except maybe the nation that God has assigned to begin the great time of war in the Middle East, as proclaimed by the ram that will charge, the bear that will gorge, and the second horseman who will be given power to allow men to butcher one another.

Trump’s Speech

In this earlier post it was noted that Trump surrounded himself with neocons in his administration who would likely call for military action on Iran. Trump said,

We cannot let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building dangerous missiles, and we cannot abide by an agreement if it provides cover for the eventual construction of a nuclear program. (Applause.) The Iran Deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into. Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States, and I don’t think you’ve heard the last of it — believe me . . .

It is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that Iran’s government end its pursuit of death and destruction.” (emphasis mine)

The Rhetoric Continues

Granted, Trump’s language is more subdued compared to his earlier statement on North Korea when he said the USA may destroy it, but to say “we cannot let a murderous regime continue” and “it is time” says that Iran is still in the US military’s sights.

And Rouhani is talking about everything they want to do, and what they will do – lying only about those specific things.

So the rhetoric continues between the USA and Iran. When will the Second Signpost begin? I don’t know. But this world is still on track to witness it.

  1. Hi Mark – I have been thinking that right now that IRANIAN troops are all over the middle east syria, lebanon, iraq, and Qatar. If they refuse to leave if the syrian war ends and then get in Turkey’s way, could this be the second signpost. Must it be a declaration of War against other countries?

  2. Joseph,
    All we can know is what God’s Word seems to be telling us. Daniel 8 shows us a ram that will be surprising and shocking. Daniel 7 shows us a bear that will gorge on many animals. Were not there yet. Look for a shocking move across the Mideast that will involve a gorging on many countries.

  3. If we get hit by an EMP from NK then the U.S.A would be out of the way and no one would be able to stop the ram from his charge north, west, and south… Or if the petro dollar is removed we wouldn’t have the financial ability to provide military might in the middle east and thus would have to pull out as well…
