Sometimes, it seems some things that are anticipated take their sweet time to arrive.
The Second Signpost, the invasion by Iran of the Middle East, is to be the next event in Bible prophecy according to the Signpost theory of interpretation. Though the Iranian regime, with the IRGC, has shown every sign of getting ready over the last several years, that regime—the kings of the Medes and Persians—won’t charge out until they are ready.
During the Trump administration, with the onerous sanctions placed on the regime and choking off incoming money, and the intimidation given them of a US president not afraid to use America’s forces, the Second Signpost’s coming was slowed.
Not to worry though, for the Biden administration has rescued the regime and set their agenda back on track.
First, the US election earlier this month has shown that there is a rising pushback against the—I’ll call it insane—policies of the Left with their Marxist agenda manifesting as CRT and so forth. Vaccine mandates, the border disaster, and making America energy dependent are all adding to the fuel for the pushback.
Therefore, if China is to help Iran by occupying America’s forces, they may do it before a red tide hits—which could be 2022 or 2024.
Second, Biden has graciously given a lifeline of money to the regime, just as Obama did. No, it’s not a pallet of cash but it’s just as good.
Biden is not enforcing the sanctions against the regime, and so China has become the number one buyer of Iranian oil buying half a million barrels per day. At a price of $60 per barrel, that comes to almost one billion dollars per month.
The regime’s cash reserves, which are the life blood of their preparations for the Second Signpost, grew from $4 billion at the end of 2020, to $31 billion now.
So take heart, the Biden administration is doing everything it can to speed up the Second Signpost. It looks like it’s doing a great job.
Speeding up and slowing down of prophesied and anticipated events was written of by Habakkuk, the Old Testament prophet:
“For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal, and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.” (Habakkuk 2:3 NASB)
