This is an alert.
I knew at some point we would likely be faced with this: the Second Signpost is at our doorstep.
Over the years since 1979, the IRGC grew in strength and ability. It grew first in its military, and then in its influence over everything in Iran—its economy, its politics, and even its culture.
In the last few years the IRGC supported its allies in their fights in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Yemen.
Then this past summer they became brazenly aggressive taking ships. On June 21 they shot down a US asset, a drone.
Then Iran proved its ability to cause shock and run out like the ram of Daniel 8, in the attack on the Saudi oil facilities on September 14.
But now, US President Trump has stated the United States military will hit 52 military and economic targets of Iran if there is any repercussion from Iran. The number 52 is the number of hostages the new Iranian regime held hostage in 1979.
Apparently the US administration has grown tired of threat after threat from Iran. I wrote in an earlier post that kudos go to Trump for keeping us out of the Second Signpost this long. However, his and his administration’s confidence in America’s military prowess are in error. Daniel 8 shows us that if America and Iran were to tangle in a war, Iran will win.
So what will the regime do?
It will not allow its 52 targets to be hit unless it intends to sacrifice them for some gain. This is not likely.
No, the next move may very well be by the IRGC executing an all-out attack across the Middle East—oil facilities and US assets so the US cannot attack, or if it does, it won’t matter. And the IRGC may very well do it after the three days of mourning for Soleimani declared by the supreme leader. The declaration was made the morning of January 3. This means that Monday morning, January 6, the three days will be over.
All you who know the Signposts and have been watching with me, pray for your families, churches, and communities, however the Spirit urges you to pray. But you knew that.
Praying for a delay may be answered, but the times of delays may be over.
Remember, with the bear gorging on many nations, and the second horseman allowing men to brutally slay one another and to take peace of mind from the entire earth, and Jesus telling us in Matthew 24 to not scream in terror, this far away event will show up at your door.
We humans are never in control of our lives, only God is. He just allows our circumstances to make us think we are. But He is in control. Depend on Him for everything. When the Second Signpost begins, the world will be turned upside down.
