“Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider . . . was given a large sword.” (Rev. 6:4 NIV 1984)
Iranian news media tells us that the commander of the Quds force of the IRGC, one of the kings of the Persian ram, received the first-ever, and highest, military award from another one of the kings of the Persian ram.
Supreme leader Khamenei awarded the Order of Zulfaqar to Major General Soleimani.
In this past post, I explained what Zulfaqar is—the most important sword in Shia Islam; it is the great sword of Shia Islam, and it so happens to be two-pronged, just like the Persian ram. Of course, the great sword of the second horseman, and the two horns of the Persian ram are connected to the same event, the Second Signpost.
Am I suggesting that the second horseman receiving his great sword is somehow reflected here on earth with the chief military planner of the Second Signpost receiving his Order of Zulfaqar? Maybe.
At the very least, here is yet again a symbolic or spiritual hint to the coming great Iranian invasion, with the Iranian regime, consisting of two powers—the supreme leader and IRGC—who are the kings of the Medes and Persians, getting ready to run out, to cause a great war. They are allowed to start war and at the same time take peace of mind from the rest of the earth. Peace of mind will be lost by the loss of cheap and plentiful oil.
The first horseman with his bow, and no information given about any arrows, was shown in Daniel Revisited to be fulfilled by Saddam Hussein with his launching capability and no WMD.
Perhaps the second horseman is to be fulfilled by General Qassem Soleimani. He has received a great sword in the form of commanding the IRGC; and now his receiving the Order of Zulfaqar maybe symbolic confirmation that he did indeed receive the great sword.
Are you getting ready for the great hardships directly ahead?
