Day 357: Despite What Many Say or Wish, 2021 Could Be Far Worse

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.

Looking Forward

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.

Keep watching.

  1. Human curiosity about the universe crescendoed into a desire to place a large telescope in orbit around the Earth above the distortions of atmosphere. Scientists wanted America to do it.

    God used America’s NASA space program to reveal to the world the majesty of his physical creations. Those who hate American freedoms and want to see them destroyed will be disappointed by what happens on January 6, 2021. Why? Because God has nobler tasks than giving humans an unobstructed view of the physical universe for America to accomplish. “The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.” [Psalm 2:2-6 KJV] The best is yet to come.

  2. Prism,
    January 6 definitely presents a fork in the road for the American Republic. Yet the best is definitely ahead with the return of our Savior.

  3. I’m normally a pessimist, based on all the gloomy past news which appears to forecast even worse things. But in this case I feel and think “prismsplay” is correct in the hopeful assessment and expectation for the coming year. My basis for this in part is in agreement with the spirit of the Psalm 2 reference given above. 2020 has been a year of monumental exposure of (pseudo)-government fraud and theft, especially in terms of the tentative so-called election results. This is actually a very good thing; although so far we haven’t seen the benefits of it. On the one hand virtually everything looks hopeless in terms of the trend. To use a well-seasoned analogy: Pharaoh’s army appears to have all of God’s people trapped between the mountains and the Red Sea, which doesn’t look cross-able at this point in time. But who was it that led the Israelites to that place of human and governmental impossibility in the first place? We likewise appear to be trapped by the multitude of conspiracies and conspirators. Of course it could get worse from here. It can almost always get worse. Except for one thing: God has been listening to the intercessory prayers of the His people. He has a plan, a way of escape; and will do ‘exceedingly beyond what we could ask or think’. One of the things I’m looking forward to is seeing some actual justice served on the conspirators who oppose the purposes of the kingdom of God in the earth in this coming season. If my hopeful assessment is correct, we are at a major turning point, in which we need to “stand still and see” what His saving grace and power does next.

  4. Mark,
    Thought you and others who follow you might be interested in catching this link. It starts at 4pm CST later today!

  5. I had an unusual feeling of excitement this morning for this coming year…a bit strange considering I believe it will be another traumatic year for the world. God is our comfort as you note Mark and he will be giving us plenty more opportunities to trust him completely in the coming 12 months.

  6. I ran a search on an Iranian website controlled by the IRGC to see if their science geeks are interested in what the Hubble Space Telescope is discovering. Although they are following the discoveries with interest, the IRGC has confined its space endeavors to satellites for military use, one in orbit, and one about to be launched. It is the Arab countries around the Persian Gulf (UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Oman) that are getting into space programs more for discovery than for defense. What will become of these budding space programs when Iran invades those countries? Iranian scientists may insist that they be allowed to continue. Will country borders be left intact? Will the ancient satrap system for governing be employed?

  7. I have read over the last 4 years many accounts of Trump will clear the swamp, the Deep State will be unveiled, the Military Ind. Complex will be exposed, a ring of Government abusers at the highest levels will be bought to book……. and yet very little happened.

    No doubt Trump wanted to expose many untruths but sadly with his brusque style upset a lot of people and a lot of his fringe support fell away making his desired task even more difficult. Now I read that the 6th of January will be a significant event but unfortunately probably will be another damp squib.

    God is obviously in control and what has happened He knew how it would unfold. He probably now wants the new regime to take control and lead us into the mayhem before the Second Coming….

  8. Mark,

    I agree with Brian Weston above, Trump’s election was in hindsight a marvelous grace period given to our country to come to the Lord in repentance for restoration. But we stubbornly did not and as a result the judgment shadow on the USA now looms large. When Biden is inaugurated his Presidency will obviously be a weak one. If he even finishes out the term due to his own mental challenges elevating the even more radical Kamala Harris which Obama had always preferred as the democratic presidential candidate from what I understand.

    As you rightly pointed out Mark from your past posts that the USA must receded as a world power but I don’t think you anticipated it in this manner but no one could have. Under Biden’s term, the USA will recede rapidly as the sole world super power. China will see to it as God’s plan continues to be shown to those who watch for his Son’s return. As I see it as of now, the USA will continue to recede as a super power through 2025 as China continues its ascension to super power status and the revived Islamic Caliphate will begin to become more active whether it is the Signposts or something else over the next four years.


  9. Daniel 7:5 NASB: “And behold, another beast, a second one, resembling a bear. And it was raised up on one side, and three ribs were in its mouth between its teeth; and they said this to it: ‘Arise, devour much meat!’.” In 2018, IRGC Aerospace Force Commander Amir Ali Hajizadeh, in discussing Iran’s missile capabilities to strike American bases and ships, actually said words translated, “They are like pieces of meat before our teeth.” Here is video proof of it. Look at the 1:43 point in this 3:52 video On January 2, 2021, this same Amir Ali Hajizadeh said that Iran’s proxies against Israel and America have been equipped with missiles of the same pinpoint accuracy as those Iran used against two American bases in January of 2020.

    The Republicans in Congress who helped override Trump’s veto of the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act violated the Constitution by approving of that Act’s usurpation of the Commander-in-chief’s authority to withdraw troops from the Middle East. Whatever troops are killed because they were not withdrawn is now on them. Prior to that veto override, Trump ordered America’s only aircraft carrier still in the Middle East to return to America. America’s aircraft carriers, which normally have over 5000 people on board, would be like sitting ducks for IRGC missiles. On January 6, those who overrode Trump’s veto, because they believed he will not have a second term, will have to sit through a joint session of Congress in which evidence of massive election fraud will be displayed for the entire nation to see. As Mark Taylor put it: “We are about to find out the true from the false. Who has the fear of man, and who has the Fear of the Lord! The decisions you make will always give you away! If you fear man more then God, you are not only on the loosing [sic] side, but you are serving the Dark side!”

  10. Julie,
    I agree with you and Brian.

  11. Recently, a Tunisian and an Israeli released a song duet “Peace Among Neighbors.” Although Israelis were happy about the collaboration, many Tunisians called their singer a traitor who should be killed. In an attempt to defuse anger, the Tunisian singer went on Al-Jazeera TV to explain why he collaborated with a Jew. The interviewer was obviously under pressure to badger him. On the brink of the second signpost invasion by Shia Iran, several Sunni countries have made peace with Israel and several Arab-Israeli music collaborations have been produced. When Iran takes peace away from the world (Revelation 6:4), the ambassadors of peace will weep (Isaiah 33:7). There are word links between Isaiah 21:2 and Isaiah 33:1 indicating that the prophesied invader of the Middle East will be Iran. Isaiah 33:1 indicates that the invader will later be invaded, which fits in with Daniel 8:7, as explained in Daniel 8:21.

    Trump lawyers have discovered that China and Iran were involved in making Trump’s landslide win temporarily looking like a Biden win. A Jewish American tech expert, who can point out minute differences between true an false ballots in the 2020 election, has the unusual name of Jovan Pulitzer. Does that first name remind anyone of the Javan of Daniel 8:21? If his expertise destroys Iran’s attempt to make Biden the US President, Jovan may be a name link to the Javan that will destroy the Iranian regime.
