Mahdi To Return By 2016, Followed By Jesus?

 

by LEO HOHMANN

It’s not only evangelical Christians who are sensing that something has changed in the world, and that we may be entering the very last days.
Muslims are also eagerly awaiting their messiah.
In the latest evidence of this messianic fervor, a mainstream Sunni Muslim website has decreed that the Islamic messiah, called the Mahdi, will appear this year or in 2016 and that the Muslim Jesus will return in 2022 to conquer the world for Islam.
DiscoveringIslam.org and the End Times Research Center have calculated that the “first phase” of the end of time will begin soon and lead to the “Day of Judgment” in seven years.
The estimates were derived from “the latest research” into numerical analysis of the Quran, Hadith, Arabic words and historical events,” according to DiscoveringIslam.org.
“The Messenger of Allah informed the Companions of everything that would occur until the Day of Resurrection,” the website reports.
“Based on our numerical analysis of the Quran and Hadith, the official beginning of the End of Time and the coming of the Imam Mahdi will most likely be in 2015 (or 2016) and Jesus Christ (p) will come down from Heaven to Earth in 2022, in-sha Allah (if Allah is willing),” the website reported.
The Quran and the Bible put forth end-times narratives that are similar but opposite. The Bible’s antichrist, for instance, resembles Islam’s messiah while Muslims view the Jesus of the Bible as their antichrist or “Dajjal.” The Quran teaches that Jesus returns to earth but for a very different purpose – to “break the cross” and convert the world’s Christians to Islam.
Bible teacher Joel Richardson underscores the inverted end-time views of the two faiths in his New York Times-best-selling book, “The Islamic Antichrist,” and his documentary film, “End Times Eyewitness.”

Richardson is an expert in eschatology, or the order of end-times events, as presented in Christianity, Judaism and Islam. He points to Jesus’ warnings in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 that false teachers and false prophets would arise in the last days to deceive many.
Richardson believes Muhammad is one of those false prophets. But the religion he founded, Islam, must be taken seriously because 1.4 billion people believe in its teachings, which are apocalyptic and getting more so, Richardson said. In fact, it’s impossible to understand what inspires and motivates Islamic radicals such as ISIS or al-Qaida if you aren’t familiar with their eschatology.
But it’s not just the radicals who believe in the Islamic teachings about the apocalypse, he said.
“It is frequently claimed that those who believe these things are but the tiny minority of radicals,” Richardson told WND. “But what the (Discovering Islam) article reveals, is that even many mainstream Muslims now believe that the last days are upon us.”
Many Muslims across the globe see the unfolding events in Syria and Iraq as proof that the prophetic traditions of Islam are coming to pass and will soon lead to the return of the Muslim Jesus and the Mahdi.
As previously reported by WND last October, an influential Turkish Muslim media personality and prolific author, Adnan Aktar, said he expects the Mahdi to appear in Istanbul.
Aktar said the Mahdi will communicate with spirit beings called the djinn, who will help Muslims prevail throughout the world.
ISIS expects a major battle to occur near the Syrian city of Dabiq between the soldiers of Allah and the “Romans,” who are seen as the leaders of the infidel Western powers fighting alongside apostate Muslims. Some analysts have said ISIS could be trying to hasten this battle by goading the U.S. into putting boots on the ground in Syria.
According to the Islamic view the soldiers of Allah will win this battle, ushering in a period marked by the destruction of the Jewish State of Israel and the dominance of Muslims globally.
Check out Joel Richardson’s two ground-breaking books, “The Islamic Antichrist” and “Mideast Beast,” which have won acclaim from Bible scholars the world over and led many to reconsider the view that the Antichrist will arise out of Europe.
“Even if none of these things are true, there is power in prophecy, and the sense of divine endorsement that this empowers many with will have horrific consequences in the days ahead,” Richardson said. “When Christians think about Jesus warning of the rise of false prophets in the last days, we often think of false voices within the church. No doubt, we have plenty of such voices, shouting ‘peace and security,’ ‘all is well,’ ‘thrive and prosper,’ etc. But rarely do many Christians think of the false prophetic traditions of Islam that are misleading a large segment of mankind.”
As novelist and filmmaker Joel C. Rosenberg recently noted, the greatest danger to the world is not merely radical Islam, but apocalyptic Islam.
“In Tehran, our own president has just agreed to allow the single most apocalyptic regime in the earth to attain nuclear weapons,” Richardson said. “Never before has the term ‘existential threat’ been so real.”

The estimates were derived from “the latest research” into numerical analysis of the Quran, Hadith, Arabic words and historical events,” according to DiscoveringIslam.org.

We can safely chuck that lot in the bin!

Best save your money! The Islamic Antichrist theory has no Biblical support.

    This is inaccurate in respect that the Imam Mahdi, is one of the Christian witnesses. Muslims are looking for the Imam Mahdi to right the wrongs and put an end to the oppression that Cain has inflicted on mankind.

    Cain = Antichrist = Dajjal = Satan = Prince of darkness.
    Adam = Jesus = Our Savior = Messiah, Muslims agree.
    Abel = Archangel Michael = Elijah = Mohammed = Imam Mahdi = One witness.
    Seth = Angel Gabriel = Moses = second witness.

    Abel & Seth will prepare humanity for the second coming of Jesus.
    Cain has seven years to try to complete his deception.

    Would you quit trying to make it look like the Muslims Imam Mahdi is Dajjal.

    It’s as if you are part of the Zionist movement to help deceive humanity.

    United we stand divided we fall, Cain wants us deceived & divided.

    Dajjal escaped from Hades September 23, 2015 at 4:21AM EDT he broke the key, but managed to escape and also freed the incarcerated half of Magog. Gog are the aliens killed in the flood, Jesus will have 2 fights on HIS hands. First HE will destroy Cain easy money, then HE will turn HIS efforts to Gog & Magog. Then the conquest of Constantinople. Then Jesus 1,000 year rule of Righteousness.

      Hi Abel.

      I am not going to try to dispute Islamic eschatology with you because I believe it to be nothing more than an attempt to rehash what is written in the old and new testament Bible. In fact, anyone who has read the Bible and Islamic scriptures would have to come to the conclusion that Islam is just an attempt to rewrite the Bible by some Arabs who wanted to steal the Land, covenants, and scriptures from the people God gave them to – The Jews.

      If you want further logical proof of this just consider the Islamic claim that Jesus didn’t die on the cross. Most of his followers who were there at the time and saw what happened were put to death because they claimed he died and was resurrected. You might die for something you believe, even if it’s not true. But would you die for something you new to be a lie? No! And nether would those people.

      You need to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and saviour who died to pay for your sins. Nobody enters heaven except those who do this.

      • Abel says :

        I am the most spiritual person I know, and my spiritual connection is with our Lord and Savoir Jesus Christ. But the disinformation that is put forward by Western media outlets is false. It’s designed to divide us, the problem is not Christianity, it is not Islam, It is not Judaism. The problem is Zionist high jacked the Jewish religion, and now have almost complete control over all of the NATO Nations banking systems. He who controls the money system controls the world. You better pray to the Lord, thank you for Vladimir Putin, and the combined efforts of all BRIC Nations.

        Phil, I like your site, this is happening in real time right before your eye’s.

      • Phil Mayo says :

        Abel. What you need to understand is that Jesus Christ is Jewish. Not only that. He is a Zionist. Proven by the fact that the Bible’s prophecies concerning the gathering of the Jews from the nations of the world where they were scattered (the diaspora) back to their promised land (Israel) is being fulfilled before your eyes.
