Today is Saturday, the last day of October 2020. It has been 297 days, almost ten months, since the grace period began.
It is a crazy time here in the United States.
As Daniel 8:4 says, “No other beasts could stand before him nor was there anyone to rescue from his power, but he did as he pleased.”
A series of events, which were essentially tests of the Persian ram’s ability to do what Daniel 8:4 says (“the ram butting westward, northward, and southward”), have finished. The Persian ram can now hit any US land asset, any US ship, any oil facility, anywhere in the Middle East.
So what is the Persian ram, otherwise known as the IRGC waiting for? Likely any sign that it can do what it pleases without being stopped.
As part of this crazy time here in the United States, we may be witnessing the opening scenes of America being hobbled militarily and economically right here at home. Half the people want to preserve the United States more or less how it was founded—a nation of laws based on its constitution. The other half support “moving forward”, i.e. away from America’s founding principles, and supporting and electing people who want to keep their power, in order to enact what their dark minds think is best.
It is evident there is some sort of Marxist and/or socialist core of powerful and influential people doing anything they can to change the United States into another form. Whether it is by using some people’s rage about the need for police reform, or some people’s envy that they may never have the good life earlier generations of Americans have enjoyed, or some people’s lack of education that socialism is good and that America was founded on principles of slavery and racism, they seem to be succeeding.
We seem to be headed for civil war. If Trump wins and the Republicans hold the Senate, there are many signs the Left is threatening violence in the streets. If Biden wins and the Democrats take the Senate, there are signs the Left will want to keep its power in a four-fold way: by packing the Supreme Court, making DC and Puerto Rico into states giving the Senate four more Left-leaning senators, getting rid of the Senate filibuster so legislation can be passed with a simple majority, and bypassing the Electoral College. They would do these things to try to keep power and execute their agenda, turning the entire US into something more akin politically to California. Civil war might then begin as soon as this new administration tries to confiscate the guns, as all modern tyrannies began by confiscating the guns. Think Hitler, Lenin, and Mao.
Whoever wins, America may be in for a rough road ahead. I would encourage you, if you are Christian, to vote, and vote those people in supporting Biblical principles behind such things as life, property, and law. Trump, though a very broken human, now has a solid track record of supporting those very principles. Now is not the time to sit on the side lines and be part of the 40 percent of the evangelical community that has not voted in the last two presidential election cycles.
After Election night, things may drag on, or move quickly. As I’ve said before, outages and problems with the internet, communications, and other infrastructure may pop up during the hard times to come. When (or if) the Second Signpost comes, you may be the only one in your community or church to know what is happening and can tell them what it all wonderfully means.
Be ready. Be prepared spiritually and cling to Christ. And be prepared materially to the best you are able.
