‘This Is Our Destiny’: Iranian Leader Tells Nation To Prepare For War And ‘The End Of Times’


Yes, Persia, it is your destiny indeed …

Joel 3:12, “Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; For there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations.”

Ezekiel 38:5-22, “Persia … will be with them, all with shields and helmets … After many days you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel … This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign LORD … I will execute judgment upon him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him …”

By Reza Kahlili – “Iran’s supreme leader, for the first time, is telling his nation that it must prepare for war and ‘the end of times’ as it continues to develop nuclear weapons.

State-owned media outlets, in a coordinated effort, all ran a similar story Friday highlighting Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s message on the coming of the last Islamic messiah.

Until now, the Iranian media would mostly quote clerics from seminaries on the issue of the last Islamic messiah to avoid the regime being labeled messianic. However, the wide publication of Khamenei’s statements on a need to prepare for the end of times as it confronts the West over its illicit nuclear program is alarming to Western leaders.

‘The issue of Imam Mahdi is of utmost importance, and his reappearance has been clearly stated in our holy religion of Islam,’ Khamenei said. We must study and remind ourselves of the end of times and Imam Mahdi’s era. … We must prepare the environment for the coming so that the great leader will come.’

Shiite theology holds that great wars must engulf the Earth, during which one-third of the world’s population will die in the fighting and another third from hunger, lawlessness and havoc. Israel is to be destroyed, and only then will the 12th imam, Mahdi, reappear and kill all the infidels, raising the flag of Islam in all corners of the world.

Under the guidance of Khamenei, several centers have been established in Iran on research and information on the coming of Mahdi, and a conference is held annually on Mahdiism.

‘Today we have a duty to prepare for the coming. … If we are the soldiers of the 12th imam, then we must be ready to fight,’ Khamenei said.

‘With the guidance of Allah and His invisible help, we shall make the Islamic civilization proud on the world stage. … This is our destiny. … The youth, the faithful must prepare themselves for this great move.’

Referring to the Quran, Khamenei said the coming has been promised by Allah. ‘There will come a time when all the oppressive powers of the world will be destroyed and humanity will be enlightened in the era of Imam Mahdi.’

As reported recently, the regime has distributed the booklet ‘The Last Six Months‘ among its military forces in preparation for the coming and its confrontation with the West. The material admonishes the Revolutionary Guards and the Basij paramilitary forces that they must be prepared to do their duties during the expected war.

The Revolutionary Guards’ media outlet, Mashregh, on Sunday warned Israel and America that they will have to guess as to what type of warhead the Iranian missiles will be carrying when targeting them.

In its lengthy piece, Mashregh discussed Iranian missile capability and the devastation it can wreak on potential enemies. Referring to U.S. military bases in the region, it said that in recent war games, ballistic missiles with cluster warheads destroyed targets similar to air bases and fighter craft hiding under hangers.

The piece boasts that the two-stage solid-fuel Sejil missile can pierce through Israel’s missile defense system and has had ‘the Zionists losing sleep.’

After a decade of negotiation with Iran, the West has yet to make any inroads in stopping the regime’s illicit nuclear program.

The latest report by the International Atomic Energy Agency indicated Iran continues to enrich uranium at both the Natanz and Fordow facilities and now has enough nuclear material for at least five nuclear weapons. The regime has denied an IAEA request for inspection of a military facility where it is believed Iran conducted secret experiments of an implosion-type nuclear weapon.

While a majority of Iranians oppose the mullahs’ brutal regime, Western sanctions have not curtailed its pursuit of nuclear weapons, which not only could lead to the collapse of the global economy but the killing of tens of millions of innocent civilians, including those in Iran.” Source – WND.

Zechariah 12 is usually used to validate the theory, as is the Apostle John. After all, the Antichrist will be given ‘authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation,’ (Revelation 13:7).” Read more.

Recommended: The ‘Perfect Human Being’: How Can An Islamic Antichrist Present Himself As God And Receive Worship, Yet Remain A Servant Of ‘Allah’? – “The world of Biblical eschatology has undergone a major shift over the past few years. Many discerning Christians now recognize immediately this ‘Islamic messiah’ as a prime candidate for the Biblical Antichrist… In 2 Thessalonians 2:4 the Apostle Paul writes that the man of lawlessness ‘shows’ or ‘proclaims’ himself to be God. The Greek word is ‘apodeiknymi’ and it means ‘to declare’ or ‘exhibit’ or ‘show’ or ‘demonstrate’. The implication of ‘apodeiknymi’, therefore, is not that he says ‘I am God’ in any sort of a veracious verbal declaration, but rather that he displays himself as God through behaviour or action. But how?” Read more.

This area is today the epicenter of Islam. Additionally, one intriguing aspect to the ‘curse’ [of Zechariah 5:3] that goes out over the whole land is that the word for ‘curse’, and even how it is pronounced, is the Hebrew word ‘alah’. The Prophet Isaiah, in describing the condition of the earth at the time leading up to the Second Coming of Messiah, says that ‘the curse [alah] has devoured the earth, And those who dwell in it are desolate’ (Isa 24:6). To dwell in the earth does not in and of itself make one ‘desolate’. But the same cannot be said for those who dwell in the ‘curse.’” Read more.

    I have been trying to share these messages and news with everyone. Lately we have been made fun of, ridiculed, and even told “It sounds like you don’t like America maybe you should leave”. And this was from a very close immediate family member. Jesus’s words are coming true. Luke 12:52 “From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three…… It makes my heart ache. I can only imagine what God feels as he looks down and see’s what we are becoming. Thank you ICA for this site and for all you do. God Bless and give us strength and courage for the task ahead.

    Well if you believe in the Lord, he will protect you. The book of John tells us that nothing can separate us from the love of God but ourselves. God said, he did not give us a spirit of fear.

    I don’t know what is held for the Americans’ future. But God does and I am reminded that our nation was founded upon the rock. People came here to escape religious persecution and to serve God with freedom.

    We are a nation which was founded upon freedom. That liberty came from the high price paid by the blood of Jesus Christ. I believe you will find that People born of the same stock and roots act hundreds of years later given the same situation as prior generations. So when Push comes to shove our nation will rise against the tierny. It will not be any different then when men left Israel, or when men left Europe. Their faith in him who lives will emerge again and he will hide them and he will take them there on wings of eagles.

    Will all nations fall into the tribulation of the mark of the beast? The only thing that is certain is that God has not changed and evil has remained the same. So if you believe in the word of God then know this, let not your heart to be troubled. As the one who provides for us daily, will provide for us then. He is the keeper of his word and when he says he is going
    to give the evil ones their due, he does not lie.

    Study, pray and hope in our Lord and Savior who died that we might be saved and live life eternal.
