Ahmadinejad Says "The Final Move Has Begun": Revolution in Egypt managed by the 12th Imam
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is telling the people of Iran that the Twelfth Imam is managing the the revolution now underway in Egypt and in various parts of the Islamic world, and that “the final move has begun” to destroy America, Israel and the influence of the Western powers in the epicenter.
“We will soon see a new Middle East materialising without America and the Zionist regime and there will be no room for world arrogance (the West) in it,” Ahmadinejad told a crowd chanting “Death to America, death to Israel and death to Mubarak” last Friday.
That isn't all. We can't forget how Ahmadinejad is ultimately driven by his Islamic end times belief that his chosen role in this era is to precipitate the 12th Imam's return by creating conflict in the Middle East, primarily in Israel.
Agence France Presse reported that “in his fiery style, Ahmadinejad, showed his messianic beliefs on Friday, saying the world was witnessing a revolution managed by Imam Mahdi, the 12 Shiite imam who disappeared as a five-year-old in the 10th century and who Shiites believe would return on the judgement day.”
“The final move has begun,” said Ahmadinejad. “We are in the middle of a world revolution managed by this dear (12th Imam). A great awakening is unfolding. One can witness the hand of Imam in managing it.”
The Christian Science Monitor (link here) provided additional quotes from Ahmadinejad’s message. Iran’s revolution was “the starting point of the rule of God over the earth,” Ahmadinejad proclaimed. “It’s a long path to fight against evil-doers; everyone must be aware of Satanic deceptions” of the United States, Israel, and the West, he said, adding that the U.S. and Israel would soon be “destroyed” with divine assistance, as Iran led humankind to “summits of perfection.”
The Monitor also covered Ahmadinejad’s references to the Twelfth Imam’s role in guiding the “global revolution” now underway.
The Twelfth Imam and Iranian eschatology are topics that deserve more attention than they are getting from the media or our government officials. Let us pray that our leaders wake up to the true gravity of the threat posed by Iran’s apocalyptic regime before it is too late.
It doesn't matter if our leaders wake up to the true gravity of the threat, really. At least if you take a step back and look at the big picture:
God has this one covered.
He is waiting for His time, and it will come. He made that crystal clear in Ezekiel 38-39.
"It will surely take place, declares the Sovereign Lord. This is the day I have spoken of."
That is a reference to the day in which God reveals Himself under no uncertain terms, as He protects the Nation of Israel against the Arab coalition as led by Russia and Iran.
Rather than being a time in which those who hate Israel and attempt to destroy the Jews rejoice over their victory, it will be a time of "shock and awe" as God delivers his message to the "invaders" and, in turn, to the entire earth. And that message is a resounding one. As God clearly stated:
"And so I will show my greatness and my holiness and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord"
