CBN News now has a never-before-seen video produced by the regime in Iran. The Iranian government obviously believes that the current unrest in the Middle East is signaling that the Islamic messiah - known to them as the Mahdi - is about to appear. The video is called The Coming is Near and "describes the current events in the Middle East as a prelude to the arrival of the mythical Imam or Mahdi - the messiah figure who Islamic scriptures say will lead the armies of Islam to victory over all non-Muslims in the last days."
"`This video has been produced by a group called the Conductors of the Coming, in connection with the Basiji - the Iranian paramilitary force, and in collaboration with the Iranian president's office,' said Reza Kahlil, a former member of Iran's Revolutionary Guards who shared the video with CBN News.
"Kahlil, author of the book, A Time to Betray, worked as a double agent for the CIA inside the Iranian regime.
"`Just a few weeks ago, Almadenijad's office screened this movie with much excitement for the clerics,' Kahlili told CBN News. `The target audience is Muslims in the Middle East and around the world.'"
According to Kahlili the video is being distributed by the Iranian government throughout the Middle East with the goal to instigate more uprisings and turmoil in Arab countries.
