Iranian Official: Big War Means The Mahdi Is Coming, ‘Our Nation Is Ready For Jihad … Martyrdom Is The Right Path’

Proverbs 8:35-36, “For whoever finds me finds life … All those who hate me love death.”

By REZA KAHLILI – “For the first time, Iran’s highest-ranking military official has tied the reappearance of the last Islamic messiah to the regime being prepared to go to a war based on ideology.

‘With having the treasure of the Holy Defense, Valayat (Guardianship of the Jurist) and martyrs, we are ready for a big war,’ Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said, according to Mashregh news, which is run by the Revolutionary Guards.

‘Of course this confrontation has always continued; however, since we are in the era of The Coming, this war will be a significant war.’

Shi’ites believe that at the end of time great wars will take place, and Imam Mahdi, the Shi’ites’ 12th imam, will reappear and kill all the infidels, raising the flag of Islam in all corners of the world.

Vahidi became the Revolutionary Guards intelligence officer after the 1979 Islamic revolution and later was promoted to chief commander of the Quds Forces. He is on the Interpol most-wanted list for the Jewish community center bombing in Buenos Aires in 1994 that killed 85 and injured hundreds.

Vahidi also played a major role in the 1996 Khobar Tower bombing in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 U.S. servicemen.

Speaking at a mosque in remembrance of the martyrs who died in service to Iran, Vahidi stated that, ‘The Islamic republic is going to create a new environment on the world stage, and without a doubt victory awaits those who continue the path of martyrs. … we can defeat the enemy at its home and our nation is ready for jihad. Martyrdom has taught us to avoid wrong paths and return to the right path. Martyrdom is the right path, it’s the path to God.’

Vahidi said Iran’s enemies would have taken action in Syria in the past couple of years if they had the capability. Iran is a much more formidable power than Syria, he said, and concluded that Tehran can easily wipe out the ‘Zionist regime’ of Israel.

Several U.S. officials, including Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, have called the officials of the Islamic regime ‘rational actors.’

Meanwhile, a Revolutionary Guards report quoting the head of the Guards’ public relations, Ramezan Sharif, revealed that Iran has military assets in several countries.

The presence of Quds Forces in Syria and Lebanon, Sharif said, is with the goal of supporting the Islamic nations and for the special situations that exist in those countries.

Sharif said Iranian presence is based on international laws and that, ‘Currently the Revolutionary Guards has presence in 15 countries, among them Syria and Lebanon, while the Iranian military also has presence in some other countries.’

As revealed recently, terrorist assets of the Islamic regime have been put on high alert for attacks on Israeli and U.S. interests. This extends from the Middle East to Africa, Latin America and the United States.

In a report Thursday in the Washington Times, Kevin L. Perkins, deputy director of the FBI, told a hearing of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee that the agency considered Iran’s assets a ‘serious threat.’

‘Quds Forces, Hezbollah and others have shown they both have the capability and the willingness to extend beyond that (Middle East) region of the world and likely here into the homeland itself,’ he testified.

Guard commanders have openly stated that they have recruited assets from Latin America and even some from European countries to avoid suspicion by intelligence agencies and will target America should it get involved militarily against Iran.” Source – WND.

Flashback: ‘The Century Of Islam’: Iran Preparing Army Of Global Terror Operatives For Islamic Messiah, ‘Islam Will Defeat All World Powers’ – “The Quds Forces, a special Iranian unit of thousands of operatives tasked with exporting Iran’s Islamic revolution, are being told to step up preparations for terrorism for the coming of the last Islamic messiah and the destruction of the West. Ali Saeedi, the Iranian supreme leader’s representative to the Revolutionary Guards, emphasized during a Friday sermon in Tehran that the Islamic republic must directly confront America so that the necessary environment is created for the reappearance of Mahdi, the Shiite’s 12th imam, who will kill all infidels and raise the flag of Islam in all corners of the world.” Read more.

    I have been watching for 4 or 5 years to hear this from the twelvers, and now that it’s here, I don’t know quite what to say, except we know what this brings. Glory be to God, and come quickly Lord Jesus. Looking up.

    The sights, sounds, and groteque images, seen everyday on television sceens around the world, testifies to the last days prophetic blindness that is upon those who are perishing. Nothing else could possibably explaine why so many nations and peoples accept, defend, and even embrace, Islamic ideals.
    What we are watching are the precepts contained in the unholy Koran, being acted out in full view of the world. Any nation that remains silent, can ever say that they did not know what was happening right before their eyes. Every nation knows exactly what the end game is; It is the destruction of the Nation of Israel, and the ultimate destruction of all those who publicly proclaim the name of Jesus.
    G-d judges nations as well as individuals. America has received abundant blessings from the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. In return for these blessings, America has turned against G-d and against His people. I fear, that America has already begun to experience not continued blessings, but instead, the wrath of an angry G-d.
    I think that the election of Obama was the start of judgement against America, with much more to follow.
    Anyone who has not asked for forgivness, through the blood of Jesus, will soon suffer His wrath, when He returns as David’s greater Son, the Lion of Judah.
    Pray that the Jewish nation’s eyes be opened and that they quickly call out for His return; with cries of “blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” This cry will be the trigger for the Lords return. “Come Lord Jesus!”

    I take that back…The begining of divine judgment against America probably started on September 11, 2001.
