Well, surprise, surprise. It has now become quite clear that the two brothers who committed the terrorist attack in Boston this past week were not merely radical Muslims, but Mahdists as well. This is to say that at least part of their worldview was formed by Islamic eschatological expectation concerning the Mahdi. In a video posted on the now deceased Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s YouTube account, we are taught about “The promised emergence of the black flags from the promised land of Khorasan”. The black flags, as I discuss in my book, Islamic Antichrist, are a reference to Muslim armies that are prophesied to come from the region of North-east Iran / Afghanistan / Pakistan under the leadership of the Mahdi. According to the video, these armies are now forming and will soon march to Jerusalem to establish the seat of global Islamic leadership from the Temple Mount. Despite the desperate efforts of the mainstream / left-wing media to downplay the foundational nature of Islam in the Tsarnaez brother’s worldview and murderous acts, what has happened once again on American soil is clear. The Islamists have hit us again. Meanwhile, large portions of the Church are all too determined to believe in conspiratorial syncretistic / improvisational apocalyptic theories, yet the reality of what is coming is right in front of us. Turn on the TV. Radical Islam is not going away. Denying reality or hiding our heads in the sand will not delay the inevitable.

The recent arrest of my relative, Saeed Abedini, has brought global attention to the oppressive persecution of Christians in Iran, which you have likely seen via Fox News, CNN, ACLJ and other media.
Saeed is married to my niece, Naghmeh, whom I led to the Lord several years ago. I personally trained them both in ministry and know them very well. Although an American citizen, Saeed was arrested for Christian activity in Iran and sentenced to eight years in prison, as the Iranian government does not recognize foreign citizenship granted to people who were born in Iran. Under Iranian law, they are still citizens of the Islamic Republic of Iran and therefore subject to its judicial system.Read More
