Iranian President Ahmadinejad is a Shiite Moslem that believes that the
Mahdi, the Moslem Messiah, is coming into this world very soon and that
Messiah will be the twelfth Imam who comes as the final Imam and the
savior of the world. Ahmadinejad believes that he is the forerunner of
the Mahdi, the twelfth Imam, and the Moslem Messiah will come to this
earth following a catastrophic event, and event like a nuclear attack on
the Jewish state of Israel.

Islamic eschatology states that the Mahdi, the Moslem Messiah, is coming
and it could be very soon which has an interesting correlation with the
soon coming of the true Messiah as foretold in Bible prophecy.
The Islamic faith has an eschatology, that's the study of the end times,
and this eschatology has the Moslem Messiah, the Mahdi, appearing on
the world scene to be the final savior of mankind. The Shiite Moslems
believe that the twelfth Imam gone from this world for hundreds of years
will reappear and come out of Iran. The Iranian President Ahmadinejad
believes that he is the forerunner of the Mahdi and if he can cause a
catastrophic event to happen, like a nuclear attack on Israel, that the
Mahdi will appear and in fact will appear in the very near future.
About 85% of the entire Shiite Moslem world agrees with Ahmadinejad and
they believe the Moslem Messiah will come to this world to set the world
in order for the caliphate. Now the caliphate is a worldwide Islamic
kingdom which will also be put in place by the Mahdi.
The ancient Jewish prophets, the true spokesmen for the true God of the
Bible wrote how this would all play out. Zechariah wrote of the return
of Jesus Christ, the true Messiah, to the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem
(Zechariah 14:4). John wrote in Revelation 19 that this Messiah would
return after the seven year Tribulation period where judgment will have
been unleashed on the earth and earthdwellers. When Jesus returns He
will build a temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem where He will rule
and reign forever (Zechariah 1:16, Zechariah 6:12-13).
Moslem eschatology has the Mahdi, the Moslem Messiah, coming back in the
near future. But the truth be known, the true Messiah Jesus Christ
will come in the near future. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
