“An Iranian government spokesman has said that outgoing President Mahmud Ahmadinejad will return with the Hidden Imam, who according to Shi’ite belief went into hiding in the 10th century and will reappear to bring justice to Earth,” reports Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.

“God willing, with the manifestation of Imam Mehdi, Ahmadinejad will also return and work for the establishment of pure Islam,” spokesman Gholam Hossein Elham was quoted as saying by Iranian news agencies.

“Ahmadinejad and his close aides have been criticized in Iran over their repeated references to Mahdi and signs of his imminent coming,” reports RFE/RL. “Ahmadinejad came under fire in March for saying that former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez will be resurrected alongside Jesus and the Hidden Imam.”

Ahmadinejad began and ended every major speech with a prayer for the return of the 12th Imam. This is like praying for the apocalypse. When the 12th Imam returns the middle east will be burned to the ground by flames and blood will run like rivers. (I think that’s an accurate quote.) I believe that Ahmadinejad is a true believer. If he does return with somebody claiming to be the 12th Imam it could cause real problems as there will be an instant following of other true believers. It could potentially really upset the political structure in Iran.

Killing both of them would be the obvious solution, but the powers that be will probably try to discredit them instead because killing them could cause even more problems.

Somebody pass the popcorn.

Isn’t the 12 Iman to be considered the Anti-Christ?

“Isn’t the 12 Iman to be considered the Anti-Christ?”

I don’t know that he’s mentioned in Christian theology by name, but to my limited theological knowledge, I’d say he’s a contender.

Some would say that the anti-Christ is here and in politics now. I’d say you could make a case for that too. Perhaps there are several?

Is the 12 Imam the Anti-Christ? You decide, these are my notes for a Sunday school class:

Bible: AC is unparalleled political, military and religious leader that will appear in last days (little horn-Daniel)
Islam: Mahdi is unparalleled political, military and religious leader that will appear in last days

Bible: false prophet is secondary prominent figure that will support AC (Rev. 13:11-15)
Islam: Isa is secondary prominent figure that will support the Mahdi

Bible: AC and false prophet will have a powerful army that will do great damage to the earth in an effort to subdue every nation and dominate the world (Rev. 6:4-8, Dan. 11:40)
Islam: the Mahdi and Isa will have a powerful army that will do great damage to the earth in an effort to subdue every nation and dominate the world

Bible: false prophet described as a dragon in lamb’s clothing (Rev. 13:11)
Islam: Isa comes bearing the name of the Lamb of God, yet he comes to murder all who do not submit to Islam

Bible: AC and false prophet establish a new world order
Islam: the Mahdi and Isa establish a new world order (Daniel’s statue, Rev. 17:12-15)

Bible: AC and false prophet institute new laws for the whole earth (Rev. 17:12-15)
Islam: the Mahdi and Isa institute Islamic law all over the earth

Bible: AC said to change the times
Islam: Islamic law under the Mahdi would make Friday the day of rest, and replace the Gregorian calendar with the Islamic calendar (A.H.)

Bible: AC and false prophet will attempt to institute a one-world religion (Rev. 13:12; Daniel 11:36-39; 2 Thess. 2:4)
Islam: the Mahdi and Isa will institute Islam as the only religion of the earth

Bible: AC and false prophet will execute anyone who does not submit to their religion
Islam: the Mahdi and Isa will execute anyone who does not submit to Islam

Bible: AC and false prophet will use beheading as primary means of execution for non-conformists
Islam: Islamic law under the Mahdi uses beheading for executions

Bible: AC and false prophet will have an agenda to kill as many Jews as possible (Rev. 12:17)
Islam: the Mahdi and Isa will have an agenda to kill as many Jews as possible, until only a few are left hiding behind rocks and trees

Bible: AC and false prophet will attack to conquer and seize Jerusalem
Islam: the Mahdi and Isa will attack to re-conquer and seize Jerusalem for Islam

Bible: AC will set himself up in the Jewish temple as his seat of authority (2 Thess. 2:4)
Islam: the Mahdi will establish the Islamic Caliphate from Jerusalem

Bible: the false prophet is said to do many miracles to deceive as many as possible into supporting AC (Rev. 13:13-14)
Islam: the Mahdi will control the weather, his face will glow. We can assume that Isa will continue to perform miracles like he did before

Bible: AC is described in Rev. as riding a white horse (Rev. 6:2)
Islam: the Mahdi is described as riding a white horse (ironically from same verse)

Bible: AC is said to make a peace treaty with Israel for 7 years (Daniel 9:27)
Islam: the Mahdi is said to make a peace treaty through a Jew for exactly 7 years

Bible: Jesus will return to defend the Jews in Israel from a military attack from a vast coalition of nations led by AC and the false prophet
Islam: the Dajjal (Islamic AC) will gain a great Jewish following, claim to be Jesus Christ and fight against the Mahdi and Isa

Bible: the AC spirit denies the central doctrines of Christianity: the trinity, the incarnation and the substitutionary death of Jesus on the cross (1 John 2:22)
Islam: Islam doctrinally and spiritually denies the central doctrines of Christianity: the trinity, the incarnation and the substitutionary death of Jesus on the cross

Bible: Jesus and Paul warned Christians of the abundance of deceit and deception in the last days (2 Thess. 2:11)
Islam: perhaps only religion on earth that practices deceit to assist its own ascendancy. It has a specific doctrine that allows and even calls for deception to be used to achieve its desired end

Bible: the final AC empire will be a revived version of the empire that succeeds the Roman empire (Daniel’s statue)
Islam: the empire that succeeded the Roman/Byzantyne empire was the (Islamic) Ottoman empire

Bible: when AC emerges, there will already be some form of system in place that will be poised to receive him as a savior and to give allegiance to him
Islam: Islam is already the 2nd largest religion, at present growth rates will become the largest within a few decades.

Note: Isa is the Islamic version of Jesus. I refer to him by the Muslim name because, as you can tell, that is NOT our Jesus!

Wow thank you very much. No doubt we are living in the last days, the signs are all there.

I recall a movie with Orson Wells call The Man who saw Tomorrow about Nostradamus. I saw this movie as a child and what stuck with me was about the Evil Man who will rise. It was stated this man would wear a blue turban and he came from the middle East. That this man would create Hell on Earth.

Now seeing the Middle East starting to burn with the Muslim Brotherhood taking over, we all can see what is to come.
