Jews are waiting for the Messiah to come. The Christians are waiting for Jesus, and Muslims are waiting for both the Mahdi and Jesus. The Torah Observant are waiting for Yeshua to return and set up His Kingdom.
Who is the Mahdi, you may be asking? He is the Muslims savior who also appears on a white stallion and their prophets prophesy about his coming and how Jesus-Yeshua comes with him. According to their ancient men, they say at the time of the Mahdi, a Muslim in the East will be able to see his Muslim brother in the West, and he in the West will see him in the East. With cell phones and the internet, this prophecy has already come about.
Now what I find very interesting is back in the early 2000’s and late 90’s, Evangelist Perry Stone began warning about the Mahdi and the white horse. I remembered that I had never heard such a thing and I began to get on-line and study up on this topic. Many books have been written on the Mahdi, below in italics is a passage from one.
“The Mahdi will establish right and justice in the world and eliminate evil and corruption. He will fight against the enemies of the Muslims who would be victorious. He will reappear on the appointed day, and then he will fight against the forces of evil, lead a world revolution and set up a new world order based on justice, righteousness and virtue…ultimately the righteous will take the world administration in their hands and Islam will be victorious over all the religions. Al-Sadr and Mutahhari pg 4, 5.
Now what I found extremely interesting is that these prophecies given to the Muslims are also found in our bible in a different way. I believe it is mentioned in two parts. The first one is found in Revelations 6:1-2. This chapter is about the four horses and I believe we are living in this time frame and I want to explain why. “And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow, and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to CONQUER.”
The Muslims believe the Mahdi will appear on a white horse and he will be given a crown or authority to rule the world. Yeshua/Jesus shows up on his white horse in Revelations 19.
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a WHITE HORSE; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords. 19:11-16 KJV.
The Muslim prophets have said for ages that the Mahdi will not ascend until after a great army from the east arrives with black flags and banners of war. When you see the black flags know that time is nigh. These messengers of war are said to have hearts of steel and I think we all could agree by the horrific videos of slaughter, beheadings, burying people and children alive that their hearts have to be made of iron. The black flags are flying folks! Again, let’s read from the author about this religion and its flags. I think you may be quite surprised.
“In Islam, there are two flags. One is white and one is black. Written across both flags in Arabic are the words, “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his Messenger”. The white flag is called Al-Liwaa and serves as the sign for the leader of the Muslim army and is the flag of the Islamic State. The black flag is called Ar-Raya and is used by the Muslim army. It is also called the flag of jihad and is carried into battle. One flag is governmental and the other is a military flag. 19 When Muhammad returned to his home city of Mecca after being exiled for eight years, he returned as a conqueror. With him were ten thousand Muslim soldiers. They carried with them black flags. On the flags was one word written in Arabic: punishment. 20 … The article continues and becomes more radical…
The Mahdi will be victorious and eradicate those pigs and dogs and the idols of this time so that there will once more be a caliphate based on prophethood as the hadith states… Jerusalem will be the location of the rightly guided caliphate and the center of Islamic rule, which will be headed by Imam al-Mahdi… That will abolish the leadership of the Jews… and put an end to the domination of the Satans who spit evil into people and cause corruption in the earth, making them slaves of false idols and ruling the world by laws other than the Shari’a [Islamic Law] of the Lord of the worlds. (Emphasis mine) 22
As you can see by the article above, they think of us and the Jews as infidels and pigs, dogs even. Revelations six also goes into detail about the beheadings of the saints and the souls under the altar crying out. The Father tells them they have to wait for their brothers and sisters to also be martyred. He tells them to “rest” a little longer. Recently, in Britain, Muslims seized a British soldier and right on the street in front of witnesses they cut his head off in broad daylight, near an intersection. Right in the open. “Friends and family claimed he was in regular contact with MI5 up until this year, and yet he was under no surveillance or monitoring as he hacked Lee Rigby to death in broad daylight in May.”
This is a religion of war. This is going to become more and more present in the media, and the world is going to see evil they have never experienced. If you are hearing peace, peace and itching ear words at your church houses, be sure God said, “…Peace, peace,’ they say when there is no peace.” Jeremiah 6:14 NIV. If you think I’m brainwashed pull up Instagram and youtube and watch the videos of bodies stacked up and people being buried with their heads sticking up screaming as they shovel over them rocks and dirt.
As I was studying this prophet they are waiting on, I was led to Joel chapter two. This chapter has always spoken to me loudly, but with all the breaking news I suddenly saw something I had missed. Yes, it is talking about a Feast day and trumpet blast when a King our King Yeshua will return, but what else? I have heard Christians talk about the rapture and waiting for Jesus-Yeshua to come and take them out of the earth, but He said He was coming to the earth to dwell with us. I wonder if they are aware that we are in tribulation right now, as hundreds of thousands are being persecuted.
Let’s read some of Joel, “Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and SOUND AN ALARM in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land TREMBLE: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of DARKNESS and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of THICK DARKNESS, as the morning spread upon the mountains: A GREAT PEOPLE and A STRONG; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them, a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. THE APPEARANCE OF THEM IS AS THE APPEARANCE OF HORSES; and as horsemen, so shall they run.” Joel 2:1-4 KJV. The horses are running folks. This is a picture of Mount Sinai all covered with smoke and fire as His Torah was given, but is it also possibly a metaphor?
The mark of the Beast is said to be in the forehead and the right hand. Have you ever seen these Muslims pray? They press their forehead down and their right hand. The ISIS are already selling oil on the black market and have millions coming in to fund their military. We also have a mark on our foreheads and our right hands. “Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. “These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.“You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. “You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. “You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates” Deuteronomy 6:4-9 NASB. These boxes have the sign of our Father and also the number 666. We are either acting like a beast or keeping the Commandments of Elohim.
I want to continue on with more of Joel chapter two and this army that can be dark or light.
“Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as A STRONG PEOPLE SET IN BATTLE ARRAY. Before their face the people shall be MUCH PAINED: all faces shall gather blackness. They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march everyone on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks.” Joel 2:5-7 KJV.
Have you ever noticed how the Muslims line up in ranks and pray prostrated and how they have no fear? We have an army GREATER than these!
Joel continues, “Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk everyone in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: AND THE LORD SHALL UTTER HIS VOICE BEFORE HIS ARMY: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and VERY TERRIBLE; and who can abide it? Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.
Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the Lord your God?
Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify A FAST, call a solemn assembly:
Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O Lord, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God? Then will the Lord be jealous for his land, and pity his people.” 2:8-17 KJV.
