The Video:”The Mahdi:The Reason behind Iran’s Madness”
It is about his First Novel of a Trilogy,it is called “The 12th Imam”(2010)
Rosenberg does not say he is saying the Bible says it will happen as described in his novels,but that it might happen.
The Shias are 10% of all Muslims:
1.In the 9th century a 5,6 or 7 year old child,the versions differ,who was a descendant of Muhammad, fell into a well in Samarra,Irak,another version says he was hid in it by his mother,and was never seen again.
2.They believe he has been sleeping or is in hiding for 1,150 years and will reappear in the last days and conquer the world for Islam.
His father was the 11th imam or religious leader chosen by God,The child was the 12th imam.
3.Sunnis believe that one day a descendant of Muhammad will appear to conquer the world for Islam.He is called the Mahdi.
4.Mahdi means “the Guided One” in Arabic.
5.The Shias believe the 12th Imam=the Mahdi
6.Plus the Mahdi will come with Jesus to conquer the world for Islam.
What does that have to do with Iran Today?
Several times through the years president Ahmadinejad has said he has met the 12th Imam.
Iran is a theocracy and the highest authority,higher than Ahmadinejad,is the Ayatollah.It is now Khamenei and he has said to his advisors in 2010 that he has met the 12th Imam.
There are 3 possibilities:
1.They are lying.
2.They mean they saw a vision
3.Or there is a real man they met.According to the Bible false prophets of Satan can do miracles.Maybe he is such a man pretending to be the 12th Imam,the Mahdi.
Here is an Article about Khamenei and his Claim:
