  1. Hi Angel, Thanks. A very interesting feed on what's happening. Had I seen your post, I would not have started another post on the same subject. Sorry about that. Maybe we can combine them.

    Is Iran about to invade the Middle East?

    Hi Diaste, Yes, you are correct........ ""The shaggy goat represents the king of Greece," I'm looking into the future when the alliance between Turkey and Greece is formed. It's a possibility. "The Bosporus straights controlled by turkey but all maritime access is controlled by Greece. An alliance between the two would create a regional super power, and that is widely accepted."

    Is Iran about to invade the Middle East?

    Hi Wade, Iran's invasion of the Middle East is a different war than the Armageddon War you are referring to. It's a precursor to the Antichrist's revealing. Read Daniel Chapter 8. The Ram (Iran) goes west, north and south. He's confronted by the male goat (Turkey) which takes him down. It's out of this war that the Antichrist comes to power. The 200 million army is an army of demons, not men.
  4. Iran ready to ‘eliminate Israel from Earth,’ air force commander warns Jan 21, 2019 The head of Iran’s air force has warned that Tehran is ready to “confront” and “eliminate” Israel. His fighting words come after Israel launched air raids on alleged Iranian targets inside Syria, killing 4 Syrian soldiers. Brigadier General Aziz Nasirzadeh, the commander of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF), issued the provocative statement to the Young Journalist Club news agency, according Iranian media. ALSO ON RT.COMIsrael launches new barrage against 'Iranian' targets in Syria, warns against retaliation “The young people in the air force are fully ready and impatient to confront the Zionist regime and eliminate it from the Earth,” he said. “Our future generations are learning required know-how for the promised day to destroy Israel,” he added. He stressed that Iran’s high level of military preparedness has deterred the country’s enemies from attacking the Islamic Republic. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended his nation’s decision to strike targets inside Syria on Monday, describing the air raid as retribution against those who wish to destroy Israel. “We are operating both against Iran and against the Syrian forces that are abetting the Iranian aggression,” Netanyahu said in a speech. “We will strike at anyone who tried to harm us. Whoever threatens to eliminate us, bears full responsibility.” ALSO ON RT.COMIsraeli airstrikes killed 4 Syrian servicemen, left 6 wounded – Russian MoD Israel is believed to have fired dozens of missiles and guided bombs at targets inside Syria over the last 48 hours, purportedly targeting Iranian forces stationed in the country. The strikes have killed four Syrian soldiers and left six others injured, the Russian Defense Ministry has said, as well as causing damage to Damascus International Airport. The ministry claims that Syrian forces have intercepted 30 Israeli missiles over the past 48 hours. From Mark Davidson.......https://foursignposts.com/2019/01/04/second-signpost-told-of-yet-again-by-irgc-deputy-commander/ Jan 4, 2019 Brigadier General Naqdi.........This is the man who was the top commander of the Basij, the paramilitary made up of one-million-plus zealots who almost overwhelmed Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi military back in the 1980’s. Apparently he is now the deputy commander of the entire IRGC. Most people would only see Naqdi’s statements as so much rhetoric that doesn’t mean anything, for America would never let Naqdi’s threats be realized. However, those who know the Signpost interpretation can see Naqdi’s statements as looking like a list to be checked off on the IRGC’s agenda, for what is to happen during the Second Signpost. Persian ram to charge southward through Saudi Arabia (Dan. 8:4) Naqdi: “Nor was there anyone to rescue” (Dan. 8:4) Naqdi: Psalm 83 War, “Come, they say, let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more.” (Ps. 83:4 NIV 1984) Naqdi: He [the ram] did as he pleased (Dan. 8:4) Naqdi, as all other IRGC soldiers and officers are devoted to the notion of spreading Iran’s Revolution all over the Muslim nations. I wrote about this in chapter 10 of Daniel Revisited. This is why Naqdi said, An Exaggeration There is one thing Naqdi said that was beyond what he himself will do: That will not happen until the Antichrist’s armies surround Jerusalem and enter the Temple area in the middle of the seventieth week. The flag of the “Islamic Revolution” will be different as well. Conclusion It is amazing to me that here we see yet another IRGC commander or spokesman speaking plainly of the Second Signpost. The Second Signpost is coming more and more into plain sight. Yet, the world and even the church does not see it. This is why the Second Signpost will be a true black swan event, not seen by the world at large, and yet you bet people will say it was obvious after it happened. Only those who are paying attention to the details in Bible prophecy (e.g. Dan. 8:17, 19) can see it. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We know from Dan. 8 that Iran will first invade the middle east, second Turkey will crush Iran, and finally this new Turkish empire will be split into these four Kingdoms, four kingdoms of “bronze”. It is only at this final point that Revelation’s horses can ride because that is when the “mountains of bronze” are formed. This then gives us a rough timetable for the release of the four horses as “close” to the 70th Week, and after the Iranian invasion and after Turkey’s counterattack of Iran and after the division of Turkey into 4 sub-nations. Because none of these events have happened yet, we can surmise that none of the seals have opened yet as well. These events are all yet future.

    Hi RM, I believe we go back to Heaven to help complete the New Jerusalem or either just to make our abode their. When the 1000 year reign is up on earth and the Second Resurrection happens and the Wicked have all been Judged New Jerusalem will descend with the Bride of Christ living therein. 1 Thes 4:17......Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. If the Lord is reigning on the earth, then all who are raptured and resurrected will be with Him. ALL! They won't be building a city. Jesus Himself said that He would go and prepare a place for us. It is a Metaphor for the Fleeing Jews. Why else would the Trumpet Judgments need to be HELD OFF until they are PROTECTED ? Revelation is full of Metaphors. 144,000 = ALL ISRAEL who repent, 12 means Fullness so 12 x 12,000 x 12 tribes = All Israel. Virgins = they are made whole in Christ. You are reading the Book of Revelation, a book chock full of Metaphors !! "And I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred and forty-four thousand sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel: 5 from the tribe of Judah, twelve thousand were sealed, from the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand, from the tribe of Gad twelve thousand,6 from the tribe of Asher twelve thousand, from the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand, from the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand, 7 from the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand, from the tribe of Levi twelve thousand, from the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand, 8 from the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand, from the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand, from the tribe of Benjamin, twelve thousand were sealed.....Rev 7:4-8 Pretty straight forward. John says "And I heard the number of those who were sealed", as opposed to him saying "11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elders; and the number of them was myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands,"(Rev 5:11)......... OR......" After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count,"....(Rev 7:9) But, of course a person could twist scripture to make it say something else. I type way to fast to keep up with my Brilliant Mind...😜 Bahahaha.....good one. Good to still have a sense of humor.

    Hi RM, 2.) Martyrs are raised and Judged = Rev. 20:4, and in Rev. 6 they are told them must wait until their brothers have died in like manner. THEY...ONLY THEY, live and reign on earth with Christ for 1000 years as per men who have been given their Glorious bodies. Only those that laid down their lives for Christ while the Beast was ruling remain on earth with Christ during his 1000 year reign. Hmmmm, So only "THEY that laid down their lives for Christ, by the hand of the Beast, will reign with Him for 1,000 years, on earth" What about those who, as you say, taken at the pre-trib....... where will they be? 4.) THE 144,000 are living Jews whom Christ will use to repopulate the earth with and to rule with him from Jerusalem, so they are not Resurrected. Scripture for this please. When John couldn't open the Seal he WEPT MUCH, So now you've got John opening up the seal? Brother..... seems you are really confused.

    Hi Hazard, Psalm 139 contradicts this. O Lord, You have searched me and known me. 2 You know [a]when I sit down and [b]when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar. 3 You [c]scrutinize my [d]path and my lying down, And are intimately acquainted with all my ways. 4 [e]Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O Lord, You know it all. I believe the Lord is merciful to those who commit suicide. They are not stable mentally. "For the LORD your God is a compassionate God; He will not fail you nor destroy you.... Deut 4:31

    Hi RM, So from your own arguments, how can you say that you are "PRE-TRIBULATION"????? You say that the Tribulation has been going on for the past 2000 years. In your own words, that is the "Greater Trib". (Greater 2000 years than the Less 7 years) In that context, being "pre-trib" makes no sense at all. YOU SAID......"No, because God's Wrath starts with the First Seal, after the Church has been Raptured". So in essence, you are really a "PRE-WRATH" guy. “For we are not appointed unto Wrath”….1Thes 5:9 YOU SAID..."These BIRTH PANGS start during the Disciples time period" Really? The Church was birthed during the Disciples time. How then can there immediately be birth pangs? The wars, pestilences, earthquakes, etc are signs that the birth is about to come. So what is being "birthed"?

    It is correct that the Bible does not state anywhere about a 7 year Tribulation. There is, however, a 70th week, as Daniel 9 alludes to. In Mathew 24:8, Jesus speaks about “beginning of birth pangs”. And in Matt 24:21, He speaks about “Great Tribulation such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will be”. It is true that persecution (tribulation) against the Church has been going on since Christ established it some 2,000 years ago. There have been some 26,000,000 (million) Christians martyred for their faith in the 20th century alone. This is more than the combined total of all the previous centuries combined. But it will fail in comparison to the worldwide slaughter of the “Elect” (Christians and Jews) that Jesus prophesied about. “Great Tribulation such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will be”. When Jesus answered the Apostle’s questions in Matt 24:3, He only answered 2 of them. “What will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” He then identifies 7 things:, Deception by False Messiahs, Wars and Chaos, Famine and Economic Collapse, Abomination and Death, Martyrdom and Apostasy, Celestial Signs, Rapture and Wrath. So why did He not mention any of the other Judgments, like the Trumpets and Bowls? Why only these 7? Was He holding out on us? Is He trying to deceive us?...... NO! Read Revelation 7 and 8. They match the 7 signs (above) that Jesus gave to the Apostles (and us) that tell of what to expect before His return, and of the end of the age. The 7 Signs TELL of the Great (Widespread) Tribulation (Persecution) that the Church will face during the 70th week. The “Birth Pangs” are the beginning of the 70th week. The “Abomination of Desolation” begins at the midpoint of the 70th Week. “THEN, there will be great tribulation” The tribulation lasts 3 1/2 years....42 months....1260 days. Tribulation (persecution) against Christ’s Elect has been going on since Jesus established His Church. It is Satan’s wrath against the Church. This will intensify as we get closer to the end. When Satan is cast out of Heaven, then we will see his wrath poured out, because his time is short. To say that tribulation is God’s Wrath, then you are saying that God has been pouring out His Wrath since the Church began. We don’t see this at all. The unjust have been flourishing, amassing huge fortunes of wealth, living it up in mansions, partying, fame and fortune, etc. God tells us His Wrath is against all the ungodly and sinners. Rev 6:16-17….” Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the Wrath of the Lamb, for the great day of their Wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” The Trumpet and Bowl Judgments are God’s Wrath against the ungodly and unbelieving. The Church will not be there during this time, for they will be Raptured into Heaven, at the 7th seal, before the Trumpet and Bowl Judgments. “For we are not appointed unto Wrath”….1Thes 5:9

    Mark of the beast

    This came to my mail box a few minutes ago, and I thought I would share it with you all. The OTHER Unforgivable Sin Mentioned in the Bible . . . January 11, 2019 by Alan E. Kurschner Here is the unforgivable sin that is mentioned in the Bible: “I tell you the truth, people will be forgiven for all sins, even all the blasphemies they utter. But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, but is guilty of an eternal sin” (because they said, ‘He has an unclean spirit’).” (Mark 3:28–30) But there is another one that is rarely talked about that is unforgivable, an unforgivable sin that can only be committed during the Antichrist’s great tribulation: “A third angel followed the first two, declaring in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and takes the mark on his forehead or his hand, that person will also drink of the wine of God’s anger that has been mixed undiluted in the cup of his wrath, and he will be tortured with fire and sulfur in front of the holy angels and in front of the Lamb.And the smoke from their torture will go up forever and ever, and those who worship the beast and his image will have no rest day or night, along with anyone who receives the mark of his name.” This requires the steadfast endurance of the saints—those who obey God’s commandments and hold to their faith in Jesus.” (Rev 14:9–12) There have been those who have tried to argue that if someone (believer or unbeliever) commits this sin, they will be able to repent of it later. The problem with this is three-fold: 1. The passage does not hint at such a prospect at all. Rather, the language goes out of its way to warn anyone of its consequences for doing such a thing, piling up graphic descriptions of wrath. It is the most descriptive passage in hell in the bible, for a reason. signaling to the reader that you will seal your fate if you do this. Interestingly, this is the same category of sin that the traditional unforgivable sin in Mark 3:28–30 falls into: blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. But in this case the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit (God) is worshiping the beast and its image through taking the beast’s mark. 2. The book of Revelation as a whole conveys that that the beast-followers, who have taken the mark will not repent (See Rev. 9:20–21; 16:9, 11). This is a judgment by God in itself, by taking the mark God judges them with a heard heart. I think 2 Thessalonians 2:9–12 is relevant to this context: “The arrival of the lawless one will be by Satan’s working with all kinds of miracles and signs and false wonders, and with every kind of evil deception directed against those who are perishing, because they found no place in their hearts for the truth so as to be saved. Consequently God sends on them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false. And so all of them who have not believed the truth but have delighted in evil will be condemned.” 3. People are always trying to twist and strain Scripture by trying to explain some supposed loophole for those who take the mark and repent later. If this happens in your lifetime, don’t rationalize to yourself saying things like “God will understand if I take the mark, because I need to feed my children.” Or, “I will just take the mark but not worship the beast and his image.” Seriously? You want to risk your soul playing game with Scripture twisting or rationalizing God’s Word? I can tell you right now that God is not in the loophole business. The passage (the book of Revelation as whole clearly teach that taking the mark is a sign that you have give your allegiance to Antichrist, and have told Christ you know longer trust him with your soul. You will find yourself in hell if you think as such. There are no exceptions. This is not a game. Your soul depends on your decision to either follow Antichrist, or Christ. How can you be sure to avoid this other unforgivable sin mentioned in the Bible? Do not take the mark. “This requires the steadfast endurance of the saints—those who obey God’s commandments and hold to their faith in Jesus” (Rev 14:12).

    Mark of the beast

    Hi LD, I’ve discussed this with my mentor. This is what we found in Scripture. Let’s look at the Gospel of Luke. Here Jesus explains what Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is. Luke 12:1…..”Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy” 12:2….”But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known” The Day is coming when a persons’ true faith will be revealed. 4-5….”Do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But, I will warn you whom to fear: Fear the One who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into hell; yes I tell you, fear Him” A persecution that leads to death is coming. 8-9….” Everyone who confesses Me before men, the Son of Man will confess him also before the angels of God; but he who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God.” The persecution unto death is about confessing Jesus or denying Jesus, which is exactly what the persecution during the Tribulation will be about. 10-12….” And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him. When they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and authorities, do not worry about how or what you are to speak in your defense, or what you are to say; for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you are to say.” This is the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. It is the denial of what the Holy Spirit tells us to say at that very hour, at that moment of persecution unto death, when we confess Jesus or deny Him. This is our witness, our testimony before men. If we fail to heed the words of the Holy Spirit at that moment, then we have committed the unpardonable sin, and we will be given the Mark of the Beast. There is no turning back after this. Taking the Mark of the Beast IS blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, the unpardonable sin! Now then. Do I think that Jesus will deny Peter before the Father? No, Jesus forgave Peter. He told him to feed His sheep. I think that when Peter denied Jesus 3 times, this is before he really KNEW that Jesus was who He claimed to be; that He was the suffering One, the Messiah who had to die. “For they as yet did not understand the scriptures, that He must rise again from the dead”….John 20:9 We have the Scriptures. Peter didn’t. There is no excuse for us!

    Gog and Egypt

    Hi RM, Ezekiel 38 and 39 span a period of the last 3 1/2 years of the 70th Week (the Times of the Gentiles). Let’s examine why it must occur during the 70th Week of Daniel: Israel is living in false security (Ezek. 38:11). Look at Israel today. It does not live securely. Only a deceptive peace treaty will fool them into doing so. God refers to Gog as “you are the one of whom I spoke in former days through my servants the prophets of Israel, who prophesied in those days for many years that I would bring you against them” (Ezek. 38: 17 NASB). This can only refer to the Antichrist, and the Antichrist only arises and attacks Israel at the Midpoint of Daniel’s 70th Week. God states that he will rain hail, fire, and brimstone on the forces of Gog. (Ezek. 38:22) This only occurs during the First Trumpet judgment. This time stamps that event as occurring at the beginning of the Seventh Year of the 70th Week of Daniel. After God defeats Gog and his army, God feeds them to the birds of the air (Ezek. 39: 17-20). This is an exact match with Rev. 19: 17 -18 where God calls the birds to gather to feast on the bodies of the Antichrist forces after the Battle of Armageddon. God calls Gog’s forces a cloud that covers the land which is a match with God’s description of them in Joel 2:2. After the battle, the Jewish captives are released and brought back to the land (Ezek. 39: 25-28). This happens after the Battle of Armageddon, and cannot happen prior to that point according to all the other pictures of the 70th Week that we have studied. This passage also claims that from that day forward, God will not allow a single Jew will be left behind in the nations. This is rock solid evidence that this can only refer to the end of the 70thWeek. After this battle, God will not let his Holy Name be profaned any more (Ezek. 39: 7). This can only happen at the conclusion of the 70th Week of Daniel. It is utter nonsense to believe that this can apply to a time before the 70th Week. After the Battle, Israel knows the Lord is God from that point on forever (Ezek. 39: 22). Again, this can only happen at the conclusion of the 70th Week. God announces that this “is the day of which I have spoken” (Ezek. 39:8 NASB). After the battle, God pours out his Spirit on Israel (Ezek. 39:29). Finally, in Ezek. 38: 19-20 we learn that Jesus is physically present on the earth. As we have seen all of these aspects can only be fulfilled at the conclusion of Daniel’s 70th Week and at no other time. For all these reasons, the battle of Gog of Magog can only be the Battle of Armageddon, and Gog can only be the Antichrist. Israel burns weapons for 7 years. Why can't this be the first 7 years of the Millenium? The Gog/Magog war can be timed by the statement in Ezek. 39:7, “My holy name I will make known in the midst of My people Israel; and I will not let My holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations will know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel.” These three things time the end of the war, Israel knows that Jesus is Lord, Jesus doesn’t allow his name to be profaned anymore, and Jesus is physically IN Israel (on the ground). What earlier time than Armageddon do those three things happen? From the book....Revelation Deciphered by Nelson Walters
