According to Moojan Momen, among the most commonly reported signs that presage the advent of the Mahdi in Shia Islam are the following:
The vast majority of people who profess to be Muslim will be so only in name despite their practice of Islamic rites and it will be they who make war
with the Mahdi.
Before his coming will come the red death and the white death, killing two thirds of the world's population. The red death signifies violence and
the white death is plague. One third of the world's population will die from the red death and the other third from the white death.
Several figures will appear: the one-eyed Antichrist (Masih ad-Dajjal), the Al-Harth, Al-Mansur, Shuaib bin Saleh and the Sufyani.
There will be a great conflict in the land of Syria, until it is destroyed.
Death and fear will afflict the people of Baghdad and Iraq. A fire will appear in the sky and a redness will cover them
Islamic tradition pictures the Mahdi as joining with the army of Muslim warriors carrying black flags. The Mahdi will then lead this army to Israel
and re-conquer it for Islam.

One Eyed Anti-Christ = Satan (all seeing eye)
4 generals with his army = 4 angels bond in the river Euphrates
"red death" = 1/3rd of mankind killed through war
"and the 4 angels were preparred for a year, month, day and hour for to kill one third of all mankind"
"One day as of a year - first mission
One day as of a month - second mission
One day as of a week - final mission"
"white death" = 1/3rd of mankind killed through plagues
7th trumpet sounded and 7 vials full of plagues were poured out unto the Earth...
It sounds like the "red death" is the 6th trumpet and the "white death" is the 7th trumpet of Revelation.
