The current protests in Iran as reported by this NBC story seem to be generating hope in people that this time, unlike the Green Movement protests of 2009, regime change might actually occur.
Most people don’t know about the Four Signposts. The problem with putting hope into protests like these is we are in the end times. The First Signpost has already occurred. The Second Signpost is next. The only hope is in Jesus Christ.
In 2009 the protests were triggered due to election fraud and Ahmadinejad becoming president a second time. This time its economics, with people not being paid, and more and more people sinking into poverty. Many Iranians see no economic relief even with the sanctions being lifted. This is because the IRGC steers the funds into its preparations for war.
Now in the fourth day the number of people protesting seems to be growing, and there are casualties.
So what will the current protests accomplish? In a word, nothing.
If the Second Signpost is indeed next in Bible prophecy, these protests won’t affect it. The IRGC and Basij will put an end to the protests just as they did in 2009.
