How does Iran view its role in the Last Days? How do they view the actions of the West as related to their Islamic prophecies? Watch the secret Iranian documentary “The Coming Is Upon Us” and find out. Realize that when they are talking about the coming of the Mahdi they are talking about the biblical Antichrist.

The Coming Is Upon Us
Know that when they are talking about the “Islamic Antichrist” near the end of the video it is not used in the same sense as I would use it. I use it as the Antichrist coming from the religion of Islam, hence, the Islamic Antichrist. They use it as that which is against Islam and their coming savior, the Mahdi (See how Islamic prophecy is the exact polar opposite of Biblical prophecy).
In a recent interview, David Wheaton of The Christian Worldview talked with Mark Durie, a pastor, author and expert on Islam about the reasoning behind the West aiding the rise of Islam. Here’s what he had to say:
“Another important reason for the Left’s support of Islam is that it has a dismissive attitude to religion itself. The Leftist view is that Islamic religious beliefs are but a symptom of suffering and when material conditions improve the religious beliefs will somehow go away. It follows from this view that the best way to moderate the Muslim Brotherhood was to put them in power so that they would no longer be oppressed and then they will become less religious. In a sense, what Islam teaches is irrelevant to this worldview since theology is not the cause for anything at all.”
Seems a noble cause but this highlights the arrogance, fear and folly of the West in that it knows Islam is a problem but condescendingly approaches it as an archaic, mental disorder that needs to be eradicated to bring about worldwide equality and justice rather than taking it as a serious, violent religious ideology with ambitions to rule the entire world. I find no good reason to believe Islam will suddenly give up its beliefs and ambitions for a revived Islamic Caliphate when they get what they want. That makes no sense. They get what they want and they give it up? I don’t think so.
Additionally, Islam isn’t just some obstacle or hurdle that needs to be overcome on the road to world peace. The West is physically and militarily engaged in fighting a flesh and blood war against Satanic powers of spiritual darkness all the while turning its back on God. It won’t work. It’s not working. It will only enable Islam to become stronger as we are already seeing. Furthermore, as the West descends into tyranny it will only allow this greater tyranny to thrive and conquer. It already is.
Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. [Ephesians 6:11-13 NASB]
