The four horsemen
Hadiths from Ali, the Shiites’ 1st imam, also state that a sign of the coming will be the fall of the walls of Damascus. A tight-knit coalition of Syrian loyalists, Hezbollah fighters and Iranian forces is fighting against a loose coalition of Syrian rebels and al-Qaida fighters. The anti-Assad forces have brought their fight to inside Damascus.

ntrcsr7 note – according to the hadith from the first Imam, Isaiah 17 must occur before the 12 th Imam can appear on the worlds scene. Oddly enough, the Shiite prophecy of the 12th Imam depicts their Savior riding out of the desert on a large white horse. The first seal judgment is a rider on a white horse so if the Shiite prophecy is true that means we are only months away from the rapture of the church, and the coming of the 12th Imam, also know in Christian prophecy as antichrist.
