Erick Stakelbeck, CBN News terrorism analyst is reporting evidence the Iranian government sees the current unrest in the Middle East as a signal that the Mahdi–or Islamic messiah–is about to appear.
CBN 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.
While 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”
According to Stakelbeck, the propaganda footage was 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 tweflth Imam or Mahdi — a messiah figure whom Islamic scriptures say will lead the armies of Islam to victory over all non-Muslims in the last days.
