World Net Daily’s Bob Unruh, a fantastic journalist by the way, published an article Friday, Ayatollah: Mahdi Coming Back In Space Ship! ‘Super modern vessel to have sound of thunder and its power and speed is that of lightning.’
Unruh reported that the Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem Shirazi said the Mahdi’s (Muslim messiah – antichrist) arrival will be “high tech, as befits the modern age. It was said by Imam Sadegh (the sixth Shiite imam, circa 700-765 CE): When our Lord arrives, the land will be illuminated by divine light…”
Prophecies about the coming Mahdi (antichrist) are also recorded in Revelation 6:2,
“And I saw and, behold, a white horse and he that sat on him had a bow and a crown was given unto him and he went forth conquering and to conquer.”
The appearance of the Muslim Mahdi, the last antichrist, will bring the greatest deception of end times, a “wonder in heaven” described in last days Bible prophecy (Revelation 13:13-14), perhaps the arrival of the Mahdi on a vessel that will shock the entire world. Satan is the great deceiver/impersonator.
I wrote a 12-part series for the monthly Prophetic Newsletter (published September 2015 through July 2016), Ezekiel’s Vision and the Last Days. The series is based on Ezekiel’s vision (Ezekiel 1) and the correlation between what he saw and what many people are witnessing today, unidentified flying objects…leading up to the final deception.
It is interesting that an Iranian imam would know of such prophecies that are eluded to in the Holy Word of God, and which have been given to some of us who continue in prayer and research in God’s Holy Word daily. It is not surprising, however, in that the Bible tells us that satan knows the Word of God and he knows Bible prophecy. The scriptures tell us that satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, quoting Bible passages to the Lord, as he tried to deceive Him (Matthew 4:1-11).
“Rejoice ye heavens and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea, for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time” Revelation 12:12.
Once the devil is cast out of the sky down to earth (not the third heaven, God’s dwelling place, but the heavenly realm), “he knows that he has but a short time.” Satan is allowed to know his end, therefore he has a purpose to deceive God’s people in his vengeance.
Jesus said concerning the last days before His return,
“There shall be fearful sights and great signs from heaven” Luke 21:11.
Jesus also said,
“Blessed are those servants whom the Lord shall find watching” Luke 12:37.
Are you alert to the day and hour in which we live, that the Lord’s return is near, according to Bible prophecy, and are you watching and waiting for Him?
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
