Signs of Reappearance of the Imam of the Time (a.s.)
The Jews have recorded in their books the signs of the reappearance of the universal reformer whom they are expecting:
a) All the ten sons of Prophets Dawood (a.s.) shall come together and arise from the House of Dawood (a.s.).
b) Gog and Magog shall be killed.
c) The Mount of Olive shall burst asunder.
d) The valley of Egypt shall become dry.
e) Sweet water springs will burst forth from Jerusalem and from Baitul Maqdas.
f) Ten leaders of different religions of the world shall be dressed up in Jewish dress and they shall request to be taken into their fold as they have heard that God is with the Jews.
g) All the people (communities) shall migrate to Jerusalem to participate in the worship of Almighty.
h) The mischief and corruption of the earth shall be destroyed.
Their view is that Prophet Isa (a.s.) will not come before one who had arisen on the religion of Bani Israel, is destroyed. Therefore it is incumbent on every Jew that all the sects do not unite. So that power remains in the hands of the Jews. Before Jews are able to gain complete domination of the world, it is certain that there would be wars as a consequence of which one-third of the world population will perish.
The Jews shall rule the world for seven years at a stretch and burn up the weapons they have obtained after gaining victory. It is the same day when the Jews shall reach an elevated position and be absolute masters of the wealth of the world. Very soon the treasures of the earth would fill up their lavish homes. Such that 300 asses would be required to carry their keys. It would be the time when people shall enter the fold of Jews in groups and all would welcome them except the Christians who are destroyed, as they are from the progeny of Satan.1
This part shows that the Jews have animosity towards all faiths, especially Christianity. They desire to be the most dominant people on the earth and that the rest of the world should come under their domination and power.
i) Peter has mentioned one of the signs of reappearance as follows:
Since all these things (religions) are thus to be dissolved, what sort of persons ought you be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heaven will be kindled and dissolved, and the elements will melt with fire. But according to his promise we wait for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.2
j) In the teachings (Talmud), regarding the signs of the advent of the Jewish savior it is mentioned: It is incumbent upon every Jew that he or she strives to obtain the power in the world and subject others to the worst form of humility. And before the last victory there shall be war and two third of the world would be destroyed. And the Jews shall remain dominant for seven years and burn up the weapon they lay their hands on. And it would be the time when the enemies of the Jews shall have their teeth 22 yards long and they shall be protruding out from their mouths!!!
The Jews during this time shall be at war against all the communities and the last real savior will come and he shall be the one who is anticipated. They shall be successful and the Jew community shall be at the Zenith in matter of wealth and prosperity as they shall be the masters of all worldly wealth. So much so, that at least 300 asses will be required to carry the keys of their treasures.3
These statements show that the Jews harbor enmity and animosity to all the other religious communities of the world and their aim is to grab all the wealth and power of the world and that they be dominant over the world.
Jews believe that after the advent of the savior, the widespread bounties shall reach to every nook and corner of the world. Such that people shall continue to live for centuries and their stature would be 200 yards in height.4
It is said: Very soon the lands of Israel will fructify with bread and fabrics and the stalks of wheat will grow high in Lebanon like the date palms and they would sway in the wind so fast that they grind the grains in them.5
Also, the lands of Israel will give out unleavened bread and each grain will produce a thousand grains. Wine shall be available in abundance and the cultivation of grapes will increase. Buildings of Jerusalem shall rise high upto three miles. Their gates shall be made of pearls and genuine gemstones such that each part shall be 30 yards long.6
Poverty will be eradicated and people shall be healthy and acquire more good qualities. Justice, truth and peace shall be dominant.7 And this is the time when Jews shall dominate the world and all communities will submit to that savior. Each Jew shall have 2800 servants to attend him.8
Yes! The Jews have such beliefs and it is the part of their fundamental principles of faith. On the basis of this they aim to subjugate the world and acquire all the wealth of the world.
Thus we conclude our discussion regarding the signs of the advent of the last savior of mankind that are present in the teachings of the greatest world religions. And it is noteworthy that according to the beliefs of all people, the advent of this savior is definite and certain.
We have also established that this last savior is none but Imam Mahdi (a.s.), the Awaited Imam. He is the one at whose hands Christians and Jesus would submit immediately and Almighty Allah (SwT) would support and help him like He supported His chosen representatives. He shall also be the recipient of Unseen help till the time he establishes truth, justice, peace and equity among the people.
