As the return of Messiah draws ever closer, excitement among the true and committed followers of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, mounts all over the world. I will put a few comments on for you to consider. What I see in these comments is the fact that those people whom the world labels “Radicals”, are in fact, simply the ones who are excited about the return of their “Messiah” be that Messiah, :- Ha Mashiach for the Jews, – Jesus Christ for the Christians, or Imam Mahdi for the Islamists.
Any person who is a true believer and a committed follower of the Torah and the Tanach for the Jews, or of the Bible for the Christians, or of the Quran (Koran) for the Islamists (Moslems) today, is classified as either a fundamentalist bigot, or a terrorist or both, by the secular followers of these religions, and by the unbelievers of the world, be they World Leaders, Main Stream Media, or just the religiously and spiritually ignorant people of the world.
HOWEVER, it has been estimated that well over 75% of all Jews, Christians, and Moslems today do not believe their own Holy Scriptures to be true or accurate. Over 75% of Jews today are secular, over 75% of all those who call themselves Christians, are not “True Born Again Christians” but are only “Nominal” or secular Christians, who do not believe many of the “Main Bible Doctrines” such as the “Virgin Birth”, the “Incarnation”, etc. and over 75% of Moslems do not believe what the Quran teaches in regard to “Jihad”, as many have never ever read the whole of the Quran. The World calls these Moslems – “Moderates”
For Christians, :- Read about the falling away of the Christians at the end of the age at :- Modern Day “Pastors” Or False Teachers Of The Last Days? John Shuck is an ordained Presbyterian minister who has come forward to admit that he does not believe in God. Shuck has gone even further, to the point where he denies the Incarnation; that Jesus is God manifest in the flesh. Shuck goes even further still saying that “God is a symbol of myth-making and not credible as a supernatural being or force,”
For Islam read :- Daily Sabah reported. Iran Preparing For Armageddon? Islamic Republic Backs Shiites In Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan And Yemen. There are around 200,000 Shiite-Muslim youths in the region prepared to wage holy war upon the arrival of the Mahdi, a prophesized Muslim leader, Iran’s semi-official Fars News Agency quoted an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commander as saying.
Speaking at an event organized by the Islamic Education Center for Strategic Studies, an Iranian think tank, IRGC Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari reportedly said that tens of thousands of Shiite youths had been armed and trained for jihad – in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen – in anticipation of the Mahdi’s appearance.
The youths, he said, had been “prepared” for the Mahdi’s appearance, going on to assert that the current chaos in the region – including the emergence of DAESH – was a sign of the Mahdi’s imminent arrival. Shiite Muslims believe that the Mahdi will appear on earth to bring justice to mankind shortly before Armageddon and that his appearance will be presaged by widespread chaos and war.

For the Jews Read :- “The Days of Ishmael Ruling in the Land of Israel Are Over,” Proclaims Rabbi Baruch Abuhatzeira The end of days are quickly approaching, announced a prominent Israeli rabbi, as the “difficult security situation in Israel” heats up. Rabbi Baruch spoke about “the difficult security situation in Israel” but reassured his audience by saying the hard times were almost over. “It is finished and from today on, the years in which Ishmael (the Arabs) rule over the Jews are finished,” he stated. “There are signs the Messiah is imminent.”
Another Rabbi, Rabbi Yizchok said: ‘The year that Melech HaMoshiach [Messiah the King] will be revealed, all the nations of the world will be provoking each other. The King of Persia (Iran) will provoke the King of Arabia, and the King of Arabia will go to Edom (the West) to take counsel, but the King of Persia will in turn, destroy the entire world. The nations of the world will be outraged and panicked. They will fall on their faces, and they will experience pains like birth pangs. Israel too will be outraged and in a state of panic and ask, where do we go? But say unto them, “My children, do not fear, ‘Higiyah zman geulatchem’ [the time of your redemption has come]. And in the last redemption will be different from the first which was followed by further bondage and pain. After this last redemption, you will not again experience any further pain or subjugation.”

More than 25 (Now 50 and increasing) prominent rabbis from Israel and abroad recently issued a statement calling for a renewed look at Jesus, Christians and the New Testament faith. Quoting from their own sages, these outstanding Orthodox rabbis are not ashamed to exalt the name of Jesus, welcoming the carpenter from Nazareth back into the Jewish fold.
“Jesus brought a double goodness to the world,” declare the group of well-known rabbis. “On the one hand he strengthened the Torah of Moses majestically… and not one of our Sages spoke out more emphatically concerning the immutability of the Torah,” and on the other hand “he removed idols from the nations.”
“Saying that Jesus, even more than any other Jewish Sage, honoured, strengthened and protected the “immutability of the Torah,” is an extraordinary acknowledgement. These leading rabbis are turning the tides of history by removing one of the main stumbling blocks in the path of a major Jewish reclamation of Jesus!”
This is also a sign of the last days, when God begins to lift the veil from the eyes of His chosen people, in regard to Jesus Christ, but the Devil will fight tooth and nail against it. Read below :- ‘Death to heathen Christians’ scrawled on walls of Jerusalem’s Dormition Abbey “Death to the heathen Christians the enemies of Israel,” “Christians to Hell” and “The revenge of the people of Israel is yet to come,” were among the messages scrawled on the abbey’s walls in red and black ink, some accompanied by pictures of a bloodied sword and the star of David.
Burning of Christian churches in Israel justified, far Right Jewish leader says The leader of a far-Right Israeli group has risked arrest by apparently voicing support for arson attacks on Christian churches amid an official crackdown on Jewish extremism.
Mounting excitement is gripping true believers of the three monotheistic faiths all around the world as they see the signs of the imminent return of Messiah.
