One major unknown about the Second Signpost that the Bible is silent about, is how it could start. I believe coordinated attacks by drones are now the likely path. In Daniel Revisited and on this website, we have seen that the loss of oil production is the main factor to debilitate the west. (The second […]
Here and his linked earlier post Mark brings an update on developments in the Iranian regime’s activity connected to Bible prophecy. (For a summary introduction to his thesis see Four ‘Signposts’ of Books of Daniel and The Apocalypse), and Comments below.)
As was written in this post, our world entered a new zone of awaiting the Second Signpost, the Invasion by Iran of the Middle East. The United States military may strike Iran at any time due to the Iran regime’s actions. The Iranian regime, on the other hand, may strike at American military assets at […]

Mark Davidson brings a brief update to his Four Signposts perspective of our approach to the End-times. There’s another perspective too – is the Lord’s hand in this situation’s timing in very last days of Theresa May’s term as Prime Minister, and which could make the signature mark of her legacy? In my opinion, all her actions prevented her receiving the blessings prophesied at the start of her premiership, and disregard of Donald Trump probably led to her Government’s refusal of American naval protection measures in the Gulf, as reported by previous leader of Conservative Party Iain Duncan Smith here.
This news report tells us Iran has just seized two British oil tankers. With that, it is looking more and more like the trigger for the Second Signpost will come from Iran. It is looking like they are goading the United States into a fight, hoping to get one by escalating its attacks and thefts, […]
Mark brings a most fascinating, eschatological perspective of our times:
The purpose of this post is to describe how the entire world may be set up for the end times, based on the findings from chiastics in Chronicles of the End Times. This post is not saying what will happen, but what might happen, based on this chiastic study. The diagram presented here will be […]

Meanwhile ‘back on the ranch’; ie. where my interest in Bible prophecy kick-started 30 years ago upon seeing Iranian forces rehearsal of storming Jerusalem (details here) – Not forgetting this week’s news of Iranian regime’s persecution of Muslim converts to Christ.:
…..so said one of the kings of the Persian ram. Once again we see the Iranian regime speaking prophecy from Daniel. If the Signpost interpretation is true, the Iranian regime is planning…

Mark Davidson, author of ‘Daniel Revisited’ with its ‘Four Signposts’ perspective of that book’s prophecies (overview here), introduces his new book on a fuller and better way of handling prophetic scriptures.
This is a brief teaching series to point to the breakthroughs shown us in Chronicles. The book itself is much more detailed.
- Part 1—Introduction: What Is Chiastics and What It Can Do
- Part 2—How to Read a Chiastic Passage, in Both Its Forms
- Part 3—What Parallel Form Tells Us
- Part 4—What Convergent Form Tells Us
- Part 5—How These Forms Change the Prophecy Landscape
We’ve been taught all our lives to read the words in the Bible (and in all other books), linearly, one after the other, in sentences. This, of course, is logical. We receive knowledge sufficient to allow us to ask Jesus Christ to be our Savior and to commit our lives to Him.
But this is not all the Bible has in store to teach us. Believe it or not, there is more to teach us beyond what is found in linear sentences.
The words have…

Amen. Apart from it having been Israel’s 70th anniversary, I agree Mark’s reasons for this recognition of Jerusalem and his sound conclusion.
The United States moved its embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14, 2018.
Having some time to reflect on this event, and connect the dots to other events both past and future-prophesied, I believe this is an important milestone—not for the end times in general—but for Israel during these times.
I believe we can now divide the modern, end-time history of the nation of Israel into three phases.
Israel, Phase 1
The first phase saw the establishment of the Jewish people forming a community. After many centuries, the Jewish people returned to the land of Israel; not the land of Palestine, but the land of Israel. Jews began to arrive in the late 1800’s, bought desert parcels and swampland from their Arab neighbors, and created a thriving Jewish community. By 1948, there were a little over half a million Jews living and working in the coastal plain, the Negev…

Mark Davidson blogs,
A number of news items are showing that events in the Middle East continue to march us to the Second Signpost. Iran Nuclear Deal US president Trump is threatening to boycott or end the Iran nuclear deal, on May 12. Though the nuclear deal is far better for Iran (as I posted here), allowing the […]

The heir apparent to the Saudi throne, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, gets it. He called Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei “the new Hitler” back in November. Admittedly, I didn’t read the story; after all, of course the Ayatollah is like Hitler – ruling his nation with an iron fist, etc. It’s a no-brainer.…

Also in this week’s news, in Washington ‘MbS’ and Donald Trump dance the tango to move a major US airbase from Turkey and Central Comms from Quatar to Saudi Arabia (photo and text courtesy Debka):
‘Ahead of their White House talks on Tuesday, March 20, President Donald Trump and the Saudi Crown Prince agree on a new Supreme Committee to coordinate military and diplomatic efforts for curbing Iranian expansion. The United Arab Emirate is the third member. This committee, to focus on coordinated operations, will consist of the three governments’ national security advisers. For final decisions, they will call in President Trump, Saudi Crown Prince Muhammed bin Salman (MbS) and the UAE Emir Sheikh Muhammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan (MbZ). White House sources reported that the new group would be ceremonially launched in Washington this week. The Emirates national security adviser Sheikh Tahnoon bin Zayed Al Nahyan will come over to join the event. The emir himself is expected in Washington soon.
‘US and Saudi officials confirmed Tuesday that the new Supreme Committee’s mission would be to execute the goal shared by the three governments, namely, to stall Iran’s expansionist designs across the oil-rich Gulf and the Middle East...(click title for more)’.
‘Plans to speed up the transfer of the big US CENTCOM base in Qatar to Saudi Arabia were approved by President Donald Trump and Saudi Crown Prince Muhamed bin Salman when they met at the White House on Tuesday, March 20. This is an earth-shaking event for the Middle East, which far transcends US-Saudi relations, say DEBKAfile’s military sources. They also disclose that, despite repeated denials, the Trump administration is in the process of another momentous move, packing up its air force and quitting Incirlik in southern Turkey, the biggest air base in the region.
‘The two moves are interconnected. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has become an avid supporter of the Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, who is locked in a feud with the Saudi rulers. Turkey recently established a large military base in the oil emirate. The Saudi Crown Prince and his ally, the UAE ruler Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan, are close friends and President Trump’s leading allies in the Gulf region. The two Gulf rulers view the Turkish president and Qatari emir as arch-foes…(click title for more)’.
Mark’s opinion here is of interest relating to the prophecies in not only Daniel chapters 7 & 8 but also in Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39.
So what happened? According to Israeli authorities an Iranian drone flew into Israeli airspace yesterday. Israel responded with some F-16’s taking out the drone. (By the way, military drones are not the little 4- or 6-propellar toys we see flying around in the local news—they are unmanned aircraft which can be as large as manned fighters themselves.)
An antiaircraft missile launched from Syria downed one of the F-16s while in Israeli airspace. Israel then responded by taking out targets on the ground in Syria they thought were responsible for launching the drone and the missile.
This Reuters article summarizes everything nicely.
Some news sites on the web made it sound like a great battle leading to the start of a new war. I believe this is nonsense. This was Iran and her…

In January 2016 a high-ranking Shia cleric was executed, and an embassy was burned down in retribution.
While these might be cause for concern with many, we who are familiar with the Four Signposts know the big event to watch out for. We do not know how it will begin. It could have started over any of these events, or an event like it in the future. But that is the nature of the enmity between Sunni and Shia, one of constant agitation. We will continue to see sabre rattling and tough talk and events that make it seem the Second Signpost War could break out at any time.
Remember Iran launching its own rocket into the ISIS area? Over…

Readers who relished Mark Davidson’s well-researched Daniel Revisited will enjoy studying this appetizer for his latest book…very well done Mark. (Opening his post overwrites my brief re-blog but if you wish to read in a new window tap/click here, and then continue reading Part 2 of 3, also in new, separate window.)
Daniel 11 has the potential to be very helpful in helping us understand much of what will happen in the Middle East during the Fourth Signpost and Tribulation.
The question has been which parts of Daniel 11 were fulfilled in ancient times, and which parts apply to being fulfilled soon, in the end times? As you may know, if you read Daniel Revisited, Daniel 11 was mostly ignored, but it is very much a part of the new book.
My new book, using the ancient method of reading that was lost and found, I believe, has solved the question of Daniel 11 and it’s a bit of a surprise. I cannot show right now how this method arrives at what I reveal in these posts—that’s in the book—and I’ll show it later, but here I will show the result. The book will show how to use this reading…
