So here we are at the end of 2020 already.
In terms of end-time prophecy and the Signposts, 2020 began with the assassination of one of the kings of the Persian ram (Gen. Soleimani) and the declaration of a grace period by the supreme leader of Iran. As of today, December 30, 2020, it has been going on 357 days.
However, in most people’s eyes, the COVID pandemic has been the dominating bad news story of 2020. And of course the mainstream media keeps reporting about “orange man bad,” but Trump has probably kept the most campaign promises of any US president in my lifetime.
Many are saying in the news, and in social media, that things could not get worse than they were in 2020.
This shows how much of American and even Western society is spoiled and ignorant. So we are on lockdown and people are losing their livelihoods. Not to make light of this of course, but history gives us examples like 1348 (Black plague), 1942 (WW2), 1258 (Mongol invasion), and 1862 (American Civil War). These were all bad years in which many more people died.
Looking forward, the Bible tells us of a time prior to Christ’s return in which one-third of mankind will be killed (see Rev. 9:18).
And then there is the coming Second Signpost.
And then there is January 6, the day that Congress elects the US President. Either way the vote goes, for Trump or for Biden, since the six battleground states have two sets of electors, we could be looking at the ending of our Constitutional Republic one way or another in its current form. Whether by fraud and tyranny, or war, or rioting, or secession.
I believe 2020 has been a year of God preparing his people for the times ahead.
In my own studies I have come to the conclusion that just as God is showing the Middle East and that part of the world marked by Signposts, the preparations for the Americas, and for China to rule the East, are in a way going through their own “Signposts.” China is being made ready for its role in the end time and the influence the ruling CCP has on the world and on the USA is part of that end. I hope to write posts about all this very soon.
I see three big possible stories in 2021, all of them making 2020 look tame: the Second Signpost, the aftermath in the USA of January 6, and China becoming bolder.
If this seems gloomy, just cling tighter to Christ. Christ is our comfort. And remember, you likely do not visit this website for rosy news, but you come here in your own search for what the end times may reveal.
