CBN News posted an article today about a video produced by the Iranian government stating that the current Middle East chaos is evidence the the Mahdi (the Twelfth Imam) is about to appear.
The article reports:
“It’s called The Coming is Near and it describes current events in the Middle East as a prelude to the arrival of the mythical tweflth Imam or Mahdi — the messiah figure who Islamic scriptures say will lead the armies of Islam to victory over all non-Muslims in the last days.
“”This video has been produced by a group called the Conductors of the Coming, in connection with the Basiji — the Iranian paramilitary force, and in collaboration with the Iranian president’s office,” said Reza Kahlil, a former member of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards who shared the video with CBN News.”
The belief that chaos in the world will usher in the appearance of the Mahdi is one of the beliefs of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The video claims that Iran will rise to be one of the leaders in the new Muslim world–a world in which Christians, Jews, and other non-believers are either killed or conquered. The video says that the Imam will rule the world from Iraq.
The article concludes:
“”I think it’s a very grave development,” Mideast expert Joel Rosenberg, author of The Twelfth Imam, told CBN News, “because it gives you a window into the thinking of the Iranian leadership: that they believe the time for war with Israel may be even sooner than others had imagined.”
“Kahlili says The Coming is Near will soon be distributed by the Iranian regime throughout the Middle East. He explained their goal to instigate further uprisings in Arab countries.”
I know that there are peaceful Muslims, but make no mistake, they will be forced into silence as the militant Muslims gain increased power. This video is designed to create chaos. This video is the face of the enemies of western civilization.
