Imam Mahdi and Iran

The Piratearian 11/8/2011

In Revelation 6: 3-4 “And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, come and see.”
“And there went out another horse that was red and power was given to them that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.”

Now I am skeptical of bible prophecy, but there are many who are seeing the signs of these things starting to come true. It is worth investigating and researching, just to get an understanding of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s mindset.
If he really is delusional, the world, Israel and the United States is in extreme danger. Please read with this understanding.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad believes he himself can bring forth the “him”, the 12th Imam, the Messiah, Imam Mahdi.

I have a great fear that President Obama is blinded by his goal to support and encourage the “Arab Spring” and take credit for it, that he is ignoring the threat that could turn the destruction of Israel into World War III.

Who is the 12th Imam Mahdi?

“According to  the Shiite version of Islam the 12th descendant of Mohammed, known as the 12th Imam or the Mahdi, (Also known as the “Hidden Imam”) went into hiding in 941, some 1300 years ago. At an earlier time of rising tensions, the 10th imam was forced from his home in Medina by the powerful Sunni caliph in Baghdad and was sent to live in Samarra, where he could be kept under closer supervision. Both he and his son were believed to have been poisoned by the caliphate. Fearing such persecution, Muhammad al-Mahdi, who was just a child when he became the 12th imam. Then he is said to have gone into what Shiites call occultation, a kind of suspended state from which it is believed he will return. Shiites believe he will reappear when the world has become full of oppression and tyranny. They believe that he is hidden in the Jamkaran well in Iran, which is a place of pilgrimage for believers who drop their requests for help into the well in the hope that the Imam will read them and come to their aid”. Is

The Shiite’s believe and pray for the return of the Mahdi. That he will eliminate the infidels and pave the way for peace by his followers.
To answer their prayers Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sees himself in the role of bringing him back. He sees himself as a prophet. Of course he is a false prophet, but it has been told that many false prophets will rise. Matthew 24:11 “and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people”.
Iran has been allowed to become a nuclear nation (“for peaceful purposes only”) and may only be weeks or months away from having a fully functioning Nuclear weapon.

Scientist’s from Russia has been rumored to still be assisting Iran complete the trigger mechanism that starts the chain reaction.

In my opinion if we allow Ahmadinejad and Iran to have nuclear weapons the whole balance of power will shift in the Gulf region, and the imminent threat of nuclear war will hang over their heads like the Sword of Damocles. Ahmadinejad has stated that Israel must be eliminated. The world cannot allow this to happen.
But we must ask why is China and Russia supporting Iran? What is their goal in all this?
Too many questions for me to answer, but the big question is, are President Obama and Hillary Clinton really up to the task of stopping Iran? Will they properly utilize the CIA and other intelligence resources? Does Leon Panetta have the Cojones to push Obama to do the right thing and take out Iran’s nuclear program or at least destabilize the government?

Perhaps they should listen to one of the brightest minds in international relations not in government at this time.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says the U.S. should consider even tougher penalties against Iran’s government and “be doing everything we can to bring it down.”

Rice tells ABC’s “This Week” that the U.S. should never take the option of military force off the table when it comes to dealing with Iran.

She says the current Iranian government is trying to obtain a nuclear weapon and has repressed its own people. Rice says “the regime has absolutely no legitimacy left.”

Diplomats have told The Associated Press that the U.N. atomic agency plans to disclose intelligence this coming week suggesting that Iran made computer models of a nuclear warhead. Read more:

Will they listen to Condoleezza?

As I previously said, I am not sure what will happen, but I do know that something must be done to stop Iran from completing a Nuclear weapon. The world as we know it is in great peril.
The question is, who will stand up to Iran? Will the current administration leave Israel hanging? Or will Israel create an alliance with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and with the other Gulf States?

This is the Cuban Missile Crisis of our time. I do not think that President Obama will be able to channel JFK on this one.

And finally, what if the prophecy is right?
If so there are some dark days ahead.
