The signs from God that will manifest for the Awaited One, Jesus Christ, the End Times and Armageddon will occur in the same era. If a sign is occurring for the Awaited One, this sign also tells us that the End Times are near.
The messengers of God foretold events which are to occur towards the End Times, the advent of the Awaited One and the time frame in which Jesus Christ will return. These signs are very rapidly appearing one after the other.
World leaders should study what the Bible, Torah, Prophetic Traditions and the Quran say about signs of the End Times and advent of the Awaited Ones. Events are taking place which denote the End Times, such as global terrorism.
The world has seen bloodshed but it was not as widespread throughout the world as it is now. The world leaders should ponder! Do not label this as terrorism only.
Prophet Mohammad foretold, ‘When my Mehdi comes to this world, something special will take place which has never taken place before.’ Prophet Mohammad’s prophecy is in regards to the lunar and solar eclipses in Ramadan indicating Imam Mehdi’s advent. He said, ‘There will be a lunar eclipse on the 1st of Ramadan and a solar eclipse on 15th of Ramadan. This is an announcement from God that Imam Mehdi is here.’
I asked Prophet Mohammad,‘Why choose eclipses as a sign? What is the benefit of it?’ He replied,‘To let people see the image of Imam Mehdi.’ Due to the radiance of the Sun, the human eye cannot spot any profile on its surface and the light surrounding the Moon also makes it difficult. God dims the light during the eclipse to make it easier to be able to see the image of Imam Mehdi with the naked eye.
Prophet Mohammad said, ‘Imam Mehdi will not come to this world until a sign appears on the Sun about Imam Mehdi.’ He also said, ‘Looking at the face of Imam Mehdi is no lesser than looking at the face of God.’
The Quran said:
سَنُرِيهِمۡ ءَايَـٰتِنَا فِى ٱلۡأَفَاقِ وَفِىٓ أَنفُسِہِمۡ حَتَّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمۡ أَنَّهُ ٱلۡحَقُّۗ أَوَلَمۡ يَكۡفِ بِرَبِّكَ أَنَّهُ ۥ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىۡءٍ۬ شَہِيدٌ
‘We will show them our signs in the horizons and within themselves...’
Some people translate أَفَاقِ (afaaq) as sky; that’s wrong. The Arabic word for sky is سماء ‘samaa’, not ‘afaaq’. ‘Afaaq’ means the upper realm of Alam-e-Nasut (Terrestrial Realm); everything that is floating in the solar system is inside ‘afaaq’. This includes Mars, the Moon, Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and any other planet. It does not just mean planets: many stars too - such as the Nebula Star - are part of ‘afaaq’.
Now, if this verse of the Quran was meant to address Prophet Mohammad or his Companions, then God would not address the third person. God is not talking about them; it is not for the Companions of the Prophet or for that era.
Before, people witnessed divine signs which were for the prophets and messengers. In this verse, God did not say, ‘I will show signs for Imam Mehdi.’ He said, ‘I will show my signs.’
God’s sign is that you will see God walking with you on the ground!
There are two types of divine signs:
1) For the common man - those which you simply see, take spiritual benevolence from and become enlightened.
2) For the elite – those which you absorb in you and become one with God.
People have this misconception that the world will suddenly come to an end one day. This is not the case. There are two stages to the End Times. In the first stage, people would die but in smaller groups of 10-12. Then, they’ll begin to die in larger groups of 50-100. Then, all of a sudden, it will increase to 500 at a time.
The world has already entered the second stage of the End Times. World leaders should ponder! Don’t dismiss prophecies regarding the End Times.
The Western world may have turned away from religion; however, prophecies foretold by prophets and messengers should be taken into consideration.
You should understand that these Wahhabis are not just a bunch of thugs; they are a sign, an indication of the End Times.
Prophetic Traditions reveal the signs foretelling the advent of Imam Mehdi. The Bible reveals signs of the second coming of Lord Jesus Christ and the Armageddon with the Antichrist. According to a Tradition of the Prophet Mohammad, the regular occurrence of the solar and lunar eclipse is the sign of the advent of Imam Mehdi.
According to the Bible, the regular occurrence of the Blood Moon is the indication that the final battle between Jesus and the Antichrist is near.
If within a year or two, the Blood Moon has occurred four times, it means the preparations for the Armageddon have begun. Whenever the Blood Moon has occurred, a big incident has occurred along with it.
American journalists say, ‘Islam is attacking America,’ but they don’t say, ‘[Radical] Islam is attacking Christianity.’ They are attacking on you not because you are American, but because you are Christian.
The likes of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Al Qaeda are all agents of the Antichrist. They’re fighting with you because you’re Christian, and you are heedless of your religion!
Read the Bible. If such events which have been prophesied are occurring, what should you do in light of the Bible? The decisions that should be made in the light of the Bible are being made in the Congress and Parliament.
Through the Antichrist, the Devil will manifest evil traits. The world will be worse than ever before.
People think we live in the worst era. I say to them, ‘Don’t lose hope. You are yet to see the manifestation of God!’
Followers of Antichrist have oil, gold, land and power. But we have everything; we are the owners of the entire universe.
The evil-in-action is killing people and manifesting death. We have been delegated to manifest eternal life.
Think of it like a cricket match; both teams cannot bat at once. The world is stinking with hatred due to the fact that the Devil has settled in the Antichrist. Every day, we hear news of killings, massacre and carnage, but that’s just the first innings! Imam Mehdi and Jesus Christ are waiting their turn, and then every shot played will be a six!
To the world leaders: don’t lose hope. God has not abandoned you or stranded you. He is watching over you - not as a spectator, but as a third umpire.
