“Then if anyone says to you, 'Behold, here is the Christ,' or 'There He is,' do not believe him. For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. Behold, I have told you in advance” —Matthew 24:23–25.

Maybe you’ve heard Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, begin his speeches to the United Nations in New York calling for “al Mahdi”, the Muslim “messiah” known as the Twelfth Imam, to come to earth to save the world.

So what’s the big deal, isn’t this guy just some freak from the Middle East? Well, considering Muslims like Ahmadinejad believe it is their duty to instigate events on earth to hasten the Twelfth Imam’s coming such as attacking the Great Satan, America, or the Little Satan, Israel, we would all do well to pay attention . . . especially President Barack Obama who gave an appeasing answer to a question he received in India this week about what he thought of “jihad” (you’ll hear that audio too).

Joel Rosenberg, author of seven New York Times Bestsellers and the new novel, The Twelfth Imam, joins us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to talk about the Islamic end-times beliefs of the “Twelvers” and how it is impacting world events in America and the Middle East, specifically Israel. Don’t miss this “straight from the headlines” program.
