Iranian Video Says Mahdi is 'Near'
evidence has emerged that the Iranian government sees the current
unrest in the Middle East as a signal that the Mahdi--or Islamic
messiah--is about to appear.
News has obtained a never-before-seen video produced by the Iranian
regime that says all the signs are moving into place -- and that Iran
will soon help usher in the end times.
the revolutionary movements gripping the Middle East have created
uncertainty throughout the region, the video shows that the Iranian
regime believes the chaos is divine proof that their ultimate victory
is at hand.
'The Coming is Near'
The propaganda footage has reportedly been approved at the highest levels of the Iranian government.
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.
Kahlili, author of the book, A Time to Betray, worked as a double agent for the CIA inside the Iranian regime.
a few weeks ago, Ahmadenijad's office screened this movie with much
excitement for the clerics," Kahlili told CBN News. "The target
audience is Muslims in the Middle East and around the world."

supreme leader, Ayatollah Khameini, and Hassan Nasrallah, leader of
Iran's terrorist proxy Hezbollah, are hailed as pivotal end times
players, whose rise was predicted in Islamic scriptures.
The same goes for Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadenijad, who the video says will conquer Jerusalem prior to the Mahdi's coming.
"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."

Iran Leaders: The Coming is Upon Us – Israel Shall be Destroyed! (Watch the Video)Written by Reza Kahlili on March 28th, 2011
Several months ago I was informed by my contacts in the Iranian
Revolutionary Guard that the Basij had started a project that had the
approval of the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The purpose of the project was
to inform Muslims across the globe of the immediate coming of the last
Islamic messiah. The Iranian leaders, now more than ever, feel that all
the stars are aligned for such event.
Ever since the Iranian Revolution of 1979, the Islamic rulers of
Iran have declared themselves representatives of God on Earth,
believing their mission is to pave the way for the reappearance of the
last messiah, the Shiites 12th Imam Mahdi.
Their belief is based on the centuries old Hadith by Prophet
Mohammad and his descendants, who have provided clear guidance as to
the timing of The Coming.
According to the Hadith in the age of The Coming, a revolution takes
place in Iran. This is a key sign indicating that the reappearance is
near and serves as the initial preparation in the worldwide movement
for The Coming of the last messiah. Based on this belief, the leaders
of Iran see it as their duty to prepare the ground for The Coming. One
of the most important events to securing the reappearance of the last
Messiah, as called for in the Hadith, is the annihilation of Israel and
conquering Beitol Moghadas (Jerusalem). They state with conviction that
Islam will soon conquer the world and all infidels will be destroyed.
The pursuit of nuclear bombs by the radicals ruling Iran is directly
connected to this belief, as war, chaos, and lawlessness must engulf
the world to pave the way for Imam Mahdi’s reappearance.
This movie has been produced in Iran by an organization called “Conductors of The Coming”
in collaboration with the Iranian president’s office and the Basij
(Iranian paramilitary force). Also reports indicate that Esfandiar
Rahim Mashaei, President Ahmadinejad’s top adviser and chief of staff,
was directly involved with this project. The movie was completed a few
months ago and recently screened for the high clerics by the Iranian
president’s office with one of its high ranking official analyzing it.
Mashaei reflects the Iranian leaders’ belief very clearly:
Therefore let us shout out loud that The Coming is soon and that
evil should be fearful. We live with these thoughts every day and our
lives are filled with The Coming of the last Imam. That human will
reappear and fill the world with justice and establish his promised
governance on earth. The very world has witnessed too much bloodshed of
the innocent for others to build their palaces. The very world is
filled with shouts for justice. The innocent and the oppressed are
losing their lives to world powers. It is in this very world where the
oppressors rule and this world that Allah will command the last Imam to
appear and forever put an end to injustice. At that time the world will
belong to the righteous.
Currently this movie is being distributed throughout the Basij and
Revolutionary Guards’ bases. The producers are in the middle of
translating it into Arabic with the purpose of mass distribution
throughout the Middle East. Their intention is to incite further
uprisings with the hopes of motivating Arabs to overthrow U.S. backed
governments with the final goal of the annihilation of Israel and
Allah’s governance of the world!
