Today is January 14, 2021. This is day 372 of the grace period set by the supreme leader of Iran.
Being day 372, we saw the one-year anniversary of both the supreme leader’s telling the US military to leave and the reason for his statement, i.e. the assassination of General Soleimani by the US military.
One year ago the supreme leader and the IRGC, the two horns of the ram, faced an America that was a constitutional republic, a nation of law and order that was in the habit of forcing law and order half way around the world from her homeland.
But now, after one year, the two horns of the ram face an America that is an oligarchy no different than that of the Soviet Union or Red China. How so? Whether it was four states unconstitutionally changing its election law to allow abuse and getting away with it, or the small group that controlled the strings behind the election process in those four states allowing supposed massive fraud, a small group of people decided who was going to be the next president of the United States cancelling out tens of millions of voters choices. As Stalin once said, the election result is not decided by the voters, but by who counts the votes. This is how America is now no different. Expect the next steps to be censuring of opposing voices and going for taking the guns, just like in every other thug oligarchy.
This of course is a huge development. The 232-year-old constitutional republic, formed very much with God and his Word wrapped up in the formation of this government, has ended and so has its impact on the world. For rightly or for wrongly however this nation acted on the international scene, it was far better for the human condition than would have been the Soviets or CCP taking over.
Personally, I fear we will never go back to the constitutional republic. We are in uncharted territory. There is no going back for many reasons, but this is a topic for another post.
So now the Persian ram, facing an American oligarchy who’s leaders are most likely compromised by the Chinese Communist Party, will likely and finally have the opportunity to run out.
As the initial 444 days of the hostage crisis defined the opening of the relationship between the USA and the Islamic republic of Iran and ended when a new president was being inaugurated, it wouldn’t surprise me if after 378 days the Second Signpost begin after another new president is inaugurated. And if not on the same day, very soon as Biden said he would seek to reenter the nuclear agreement (JCPOA) and end sanctions. Of course, these thoughts are only my speculation.
Though we cannot know when the Second Signpost will begin, as we cannot know when Christ returns, the former event should not be very far away now.
The enemy Iran faces has changed. Just as the USA forced the mind of the lion to be changed from something beastly to something more civilized (the replacement of Saddam with a democracy, 2003-2005) making the First Signpost, now in reverse the mind of the USA has changed from that of a civilized man to something beastly.
What a difference a year makes.
