Jewish prophecies reveal that humanity is in the end times.

The End of Days

He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him.
-Ezekiel 33:5

So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field and all creeping things that creep upon the ground, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at My presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
-Ezekiel 38:20

And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will cause to rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many peoples that are with him, an overflowing shower, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
-Ezekiel 38:22

▼ Explanation

These three verses suggest a swift end to the world in which natural disasters and warfare play an important role. The end depicted in these three verses is very likely should a comet strike Earth in 2026- the result of that impact would, quite possibly, bring about an onslaught of natural disasters such as earthquakes, mass flooding, hurricanes, etc. Besides this, the strained diplomatic relations in the world today imply that we are on the brink of war. Rapid spread of disease would also be plausible due to the natural disasters and warfare that seem inevitable in the near future. Today, we see an increase of the frequency of destructive natural disasters around the world; if this continues, the world will likely suffer wide-scale destruction before the comet even strikes. Besides this, many people do not believe we are in the end times, despite the overwhelming evidence. Such people, if they continue to ignore the signs, the day of destruction will come unexpectedly.

Society

For I know that after my death ye will in any wise deal corruptly, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the end of days; because ye will do that which is evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke Him through the work of your hands.
-Deuteronomy 31:29


And justice is turned away backward, and righteousness standeth afar off; for truth hath stumbled in the broad place, and uprightness cannot enter.
-Isaiah 59:14

1. The world is either all righteous or guilty
2. Truth is in short supply
3. Inflation will soar
4. Israel begins to be repopulated
5. Wise people will be scarce
6. Jews will despair of redemption
7. The young will despise the old
8. Scholarship will be rejected
9. Piety will be held in disgust
10. Jews will turn against Jews

- Sanhedrin 97b

▼ Explanation

Today the state of society is illustrated by the above verses. In this day and age, the world is filled with injustice. Many countries around the world are run by corrupt governments which persecute innocent members of society (i.e. Pakistan, Saudi Arabia). Religions have lost their original glory due to adulteration of the Holy Scripture; as a result, the ability to connect oneself to God through such religions is practically impossible. Because of the religions' inability to connect the aspirant with God today, many people have turned away from religions and regard religious values and customs as naive and unworthy of respect. Besides this, Israel has begun to be repopulated. Finally, many people today scoff at the idea of the world ending within the next 15-20 years, and thus reject the notion that the world is in need of the Messiah. In the years to come it is likely that many people would lose hope after seeing suffering and calamities on a daily basis (during such a time of hopelessness, it is recommended that one look at the images of the Awaited Ones on the Moon and seek their aid).

Events during the End Times

And He saw that there was no man, and was astonished that there was no intercessor; therefore His own arm brought salvation unto Him; and His righteousness, it sustained Him; and He put on righteousness as a coat of mail, and a helmet of salvation upon His head, and He put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak. According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, fury to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; to the islands He will repay recompense. So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; for distress will come in like a flood, which the breath of the LORD driveth.
-Isaiah 59:16-19

And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it. For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the Lord our God for ever and ever.
- Micah 4:1-5

▼ Explanation

This describes the Messiah. His Sublime Eminence Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi has been revealed to be the Messiah, who is to reappear in this world to rid the world of evil and usher the world into an era of peace and prosperity. His Sublime Eminence is the messenger of love and peace, and His unifying message of Divine Love is accepted wholeheartedly by people of all religious and national backgrounds. The Messiah is to give humanity a special name of God which would instil in humanity a new fervour and love for God- this special name has been brought by His Sublime Eminence, and it is "Ra Riaz" (learn about how you can obtain the Messiah's methodology to implant God's name within your heart to gain connection with Him here). The Messiah is to become known from the west (the United Kingdom of Great Britain); signs have already appeared on the Sun depicting the image of the Messiah along with the special name of God He has brought with Him (view it here).

The Appearance of the Divine Signs

And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth....
- Joel 3:3

▼ Explanation

Some miraculous images of the Awaited Ones have appeared in the heavens- in the stars, the Sun, the Moon, and Mars. They have also appeared in the earth; specifically, in the Ark of Covenant and various spiritual sites. See them here.

Armilus

And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper and do; and he shall destroy them that are mighty and the people of the saints.
-Daniel 8:24

Neither shall he regard the gods of his fathers; and neither the desire of women, nor any god, shall he regard; for he shall magnify himself above all.
-Daniel 11:37

▼ Explanation

Armilus, otherwise known as the Anti-Christ and the Dajjal, has shown himself from among the Muslims. He is the embodiment of hatred; he is largely responsible for the turmoil the world is experiencing and the fear that dominates today. He is Mullah Omar, of the Taliban. He is carrying out crimes of humanity, and has misled many into believing him to be, as he claims, a Caliph of God. It will not be long until he declares himself to be the awaited Imam Mehdi (the Muslim title for the Awaited One), and then God. Anyone who is not part of the Taliban, even those who are Muslims, are considered infidels and are worthy of being slaughtered. In particular, he has turned his followers against Christians and Jews, proclaiming them to be infidels despite the fact that Christians and Jews who follow their religions completely are true believers according to the Quran. He has also taken it upon himself to eradicate the Sufis and Saints of Islam (who are peace-loving people focusing on spirituality and connecting oneself with God)- in July 2010, the Taliban bombed the tomb of a prominent Sufi Saint in Pakistan.
