-Iran: Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Tells His Nation to Prepare for ‘End-Time’ War

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

            (Ayatollah Ali Kh?menei, Leader of Iran: Wikipedia)

Last Friday, Iran’s Supreme leader the Ayatollah Khamenei officially told his nation through the  state media that it was time to prepare for the  ‘end-times’ war and for the coming of the 12th Imam Mahdi:

“The issue of Imam Mahdi is of utmost importance, and his reappearance has been clearly stated in our holy religion of Islam,” Khamenei said. We must study and remind ourselves of the end of times and Imam Mahdi’s era. … We must prepare the environment for the coming so that the great leader will come.”

“Today we have a duty to prepare for the coming. … If we are the soldiers of the 12th imam, then we must be ready to fight,” Khamenei said.

“With the guidance of Allah and His invisible help, we shall make the Islamic civilization proud on the world stage. … This is our destiny. … The youth, the faithful must prepare themselves for this great move.”

Referring to the Quran, Khamenei said the coming has been promised by Allah. “There will come a time when all the oppressive powers of the world will be destroyed and humanity will be enlightened in the era of Imam Mahdi.”

According to Shiite beliefs and teaching, the ‘end-time’ wars will engulf the entire Earth and kill off one-third of the world’s population, while another third will die from hunger and strife. In the process, Israel will be destroyed, the USA brought down, and somewhere in the midst of the trouble the 12th Imam, Mahdi, will reappear and rule the whole earth.

They also teach that Jesus (Isa) will come back as the Mahdi’s prophet to order all rebelling and non-converting Christians to be beheaded.

The whole scenario reminds me of the Christian understanding of the ‘end-times’ except the Mahdi sounds like the Anti-Christ to me with the false Islamic Isa/Jesus in the role of the ‘false prophet’? A chilling possibility. Also, the war Khamenei seems to be preparing for reminds me of the battle in Ezekiel 38-39: Gog and Magog.

Response: We have been following this issue for some time now. Most of the time the Ayatollah’s statements like this have been quoted from sources within the government. This is the first time that he has made these expectations so public and so clear.

This is significant because the Iranians are said to be close to becoming a nuclear power with missile launching capabilities that could take the Middle East trouble to an entirely different level. Last weekend, Iran tested dozens of long range missiles that might be capable of delivering a nuclear weapon.

Add that all to the fact that Khamenei has been quoted many times that he expects to destroy Israel in his own lifetime and during his leadership over Iran. He has also told members in his own government that the 12th Imam is now appearing to him and giving him advise and counsel.

Meanwhile, the Obama administration continues to try diplomacy. The fact is, our leaders do not believe that the Iranian’s really mean what they are saying. It makes absolutely no sense to folks like President Obama who have a secular world view.

However the Israeli leaders have said that they cannot afford not to believe the Iranian threats and continue to argue with President Obama over how to respond to the potential Iranian nuclear holocaust. At some point it is to be expected that the Israeli government will take action of their own regardless of the official American view.               *Top
