|Son of God – Who Is it?
Is Jesus the Son of God? In the Bible, Jesus is often called the Son of God, which means that He is God made manifest in human form (John 1:1-10).
1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life— 2 the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us— 3 that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. 4 And these things we write to you that your joy may be full.
5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
Fellowship with Him and One Another means YOU Arabs and Muslims can be called sons of God. You can be forgiven of ALL your sins! You can be adopted by God THROUGH your Faith in His Son Jesus.
Jesus being the Son of God, means that Jesus is God.
Jesus possesses the same attributes as God and both are honored equally. John 5:21-23 says, “For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it. Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.”
John 5:24-27 confirm this: “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life in himself. And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.”
Are there biblical reasons why I should believe that Jesus is the Son of God? Is there evidence that Jesus is the Son of God?
The devil referred to Jesus as the Son of God – Matthew 4:1-3 says, “Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, ‘If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.’”
The demons called Jesus the Son of God – Matthew 8:28-29 says, “When he arrived at the other side in the region of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men coming from the tombs met him. They were so violent that no one could pass that way. ‘What do you want with us, Son of God?’ they shouted. ‘Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?’”
The disciples referred to Jesus as the Son of God – Matthew 14:32-33 says, “And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, ‘Truly you are the Son of God.’”
The centurion proclaimed that Jesus is the Son of God – Mark 15:39 says, “And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, heard his cry and saw how he died, he said, ‘Surely this man was the Son of God!’”
An angel called Jesus the Son of God – Luke 1:35 says “The angel answered, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.’”
Paul repeatedly referred to Jesus as the Son of God. Here is one instance – Galatians 2:20 says, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
John gave Jesus the title Son of God – 1 John 4:14-16 says, “And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.”
Some Muslims, while denying that Jesus is the Son of God, might consider the virgin birth of Jesus to be the basis for Christian belief that Jesus is the Son of God. Biblically speaking, however, Jesus’ Sonship does not rest upon His being born of the virgin Mary. On the contrary, as we shall later see more clearly, His virgin birth rests upon His Sonship. Before Mary ever was, the Son of God is. Jesus does not become the Son of God, but the Son of God becomes Jesus. Thus Jesus, as the Son, speaks to the Father about “the glory I had with You before the world began” (John 17:5; cf. Colossians 1:13-20), long before Mary ever was. This eternal Son of God entered into the limitations of time and space by the power of God working through the virgin Mary and was born as a man (incarnated in human body), called Jesus, in Bethlehem some nineteen centuries ago.
Similarly, Jesus is not the Son of God because of His mighty works and wonderful words. On the contrary, He does His mighty works and speaks His wonderful words because He is the Son of God.
True, both the manner of Jesus’ birth and the nature of His works lend evidence for His Sonship. But neither, alone or together, provides the origin or basis for His Sonship. The distinction is important.
Indeed, His works witness to His Sonship. A “son” must be obedient to his “father”, doing his will and works, being like him (cf. John 8:37-47). Jesus Himself pointed to His works as evidence of the fact that He is the Son of God: “If I am not acting as my Father would, do not believe me. But if I am, accept the evidence of my deeds, even if you do not believe me, so that you may recognise and know that the Father is in me, and I in the Father” (John 10:37f.). Jesus did the works of God, His Father, acting as God would.
In addition to the evidence of His works, Jesus had other proof that He is the Son of God. At important times in His life, He was called the Son of God by the Father Himself and by others:
1. The Annunciation: The angel Gabriel told the virgin Mary that her son would be called “the Son of God”. (Luke 1:32,35)
2. The Baptism: God’s voice from heaven proclaimed: This is my Son, whom I love.” (Matthew 3:17, etc.)
3. The Transfiguration: God’s voice once again proclaimed: “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to Him.” (Mark 9:7, etc.)
4. The Crucifixion: The Roman centurion and his men confessed at the time of Jesus’ crucifixion: “Surely he was the Son of God!” (Matthew 27:54)
Others in addition to God Himself, His angel, and the Roman soldier proclaimed that Jesus is the Son of God. Madmen and even unclean spirits confessed to Jesus: “You are the Son of God.” (Mark 3:11; cf. 5:7; Matthew 8:29; Luke 4:41; 8:28) . Jesus’ disciples also confessed that He is “the Christ (Messiah), the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16; cf. 14:33). Jesus, as a true Son, preferred to give glory to His Father, but He too would not deny His Sonship (Matthew 26:63f.; Mark 14:62; John 10:36). Of interest in the first two of these passages (and others) is the close association between the terms “Messiah” and “Son of God”.
It is also interesting to note how closely Jesus’ Sonship is associated with His suffering (Romans 5:10; 8:32; Galatians 2:20; Hebrews 5:8; 6:6). When Jesus was famished after a long fast, the tempter said to Him: “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread” (Matthew 4:3, etc.). When Jesus was in agony on the cross, the passersby mocked Him and said: “Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!” (Matthew 27:40). These speakers forgot that Jesus is the Son of God. God, who seeks and serves and even suffers to save those whom He loves, the people of the world. He is not the son of some earthly king, who must show his might and save his pride by appearing to be victorious in the eyes of the world, according to the world’s standards. It was just because He is the Son of the God of love that He would not use His power for selfish purposes but perfectly fulfilled the will of His Father, who chose to reveal Himself and His love to all men through His suffering Servant/Son.
Even a casual reading of the verses cited above would show that the use of the term “Son of God” with reference to Jesus is different in both quality and extent from the other uses mentioned previously. Others were graciously chosen by God as His adopted sons; the Son is in the Father eternally. Others obeyed the Father, though imperfectly; Jesus the Son obeyed Him perfectly, without sin (Hebrews 4:15). Sons should be like their father, but only Jesus was perfect like Him in His goodness, giving Himself completely for Him and His people. The Father has entrusted all judgement to the Son alone, “that all may honour the Son just as they honour the Father” (John 5:22,23). Only the Son gives life as the Father gives life (John 5:21). For was the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself” (John 5:26). The Son is obedient to the Father, with the will of the Father becoming concretized in the way of the Son; but the Father also listens and gives heed to the Son (John 11:41-44). Thus there is a sharing of power, authority, knowledge, glory, and kingship which indicates a relationship of equality and mutuality between the Two who are One. About what people, what angel, what king, what pious man could it be said: “In these last days God has spoken to us by the Son whom He has appointed heir of all things, and through whom He made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by His powerful word”? (Hebrews 1:2f.)
Many of the uses of the term “son” in the Holy Bible and in various languages can give clues to the significance of the term “Son of God” with reference to Jesus, but in the end its use, directly applied to Jesus, remains as unique as the relationship it expresses is unique. Jesus said: “I and the Father are one.” (John 10:30)
How then, can Muslims (and Christians?) be helped to understand Jesus and the true significance of His name “Son of God”?
It should be made clear that Jesus was a man, a servant and a prophet, just as Muslims have always insisted and just as the Holy Injil claims the Son of God to have become. When the disciples of Jesus first met Jesus, they understood Him to be a man. How could they have understood otherwise? They had heard how Satan tempted Him. They saw Him hungry and weary. They knew Him in need of companionship and prayer. They saw Him weep. They heard Him in prayer and saw Him in action surrendering His will to the Father’s will, claiming the Father’s will to be His bread. His words: “The Father is greater than I” were intelligible to them. How else should they have understood? Or we, had we been with Him on earth?
Only after the disciples’ association with Jesus had deepened, after they heard His words and witnessed His deeds, did they and others begin to wonder and ask questions about Him: “Who is this man?” “From where does He come?” They saw Him feed the multitudes, heal the sick, control nature, raise the dead. They heard Him forgive sins, they heard Him speak in an extraordinary manner about His purpose in coming, about His relation with the Temple, the Law and the prophets, about the love of Cod and His personal relationship with God. Even then, there were those who misinterpreted Him and His works, willfully or otherwise.
The disciples’ understanding of both Jesus and His ministry was a gradual and at times a painful process. What He required of them to understand Him was not simply keen intellect but firm trust in God and obedience to His will, readiness for self-examination, repentance, and a change of mind and heart in the light of God’s holiness and His holy Law, an openness to receive what He said about Himself, what He had done, what He was about to do, and the purpose of it all. True, Peter confessed Jesus to be the Messiah and Son of God, but immediately proceeded to contradict Jesus by denying that Jesus must suffer and die (Matthew 16:21,22), as if he had sharper insight into the will and ways of God than Jesus (John 12:1-7)! Women seemed to understand better (Mark 14:1-9). In brief, to understand Jesus is not simply to verbally confess Him, to admire and to applaud Him; it is to follow and obey Him.
In fact, the Holy Injil clearly and consistently indicates that Jesus’ disciples did not fathom the deeper significance of His Sonship or His ministry until He had risen from the dead! Then their change in mind and heart was dramatic. Does this offer the Christian a clue for his witness? While to legislate techniques for presenting Jesus to the Muslim or anyone may be dubious, is there here a ‘ procedural pattern on which Christians might meditate, even imitate?
Thirdly, it is often necessary to explain what the term “Son of God” in reference to Jesus does not mean. As already noted above, nowhere does the Holy Injil suggest that God takes Mary as a wife, that He procreates, and that Jesus therefore is the Son of God by virtue of His birth to Mary. God is no male deity! The Injil, like the Qur’an, speaks of Jesus as the son of the virgin Mary. In Arabic Jesus is called ibnu’llah not waladu’llah. Nor does the Injil sacrifice the fundamental Biblical affirmation that God is one. Nor does it suggest that somehow for Christians Jesus, as the Son of God, is another god associated with God, or that somehow Jesus, as the Son of God, is the second or third of three gods, or that somehow Jesus is elevated from His original position of man and servant to the status of the Son of God and then made to supplant the true God. In no way does the Holy Injil’s affirmation of Jesus’ Sonship transform Biblical monotheism into a subtle form of polytheism. God is one! And Jesus, the Son of God, confirms that God is one! Only after Muslims and Christians have established this common ground, can they proceed to discussion about who the one God is, what He does for mankind, what He expects from mankind, and how God is one while Jesus is the Son of God.
Fourthly, Christian belief in Jesus as the Son of God simply echoes the constant, insistent and consistent affirmation throughout the Injil that He is the Son of God. Contrary to what some Muslims suggest, normally with no evidence, Christians, including St. Saul, did not invent this title. For Christians to deny the Sonship of Jesus would mean that they should expunge all references in the Holy Injil to this title. If Christians were to do this, then they would be truly guilty of corrupting their Scriptures, just as many Muslims (but not the Qur’an) have felt Christians to have done. The Qur’an tells Christians that they are to judge according to the Injil (surah 5:46,47). It contains no reference to a corrupted or abrogated Injil.
Muslims, brothers, read the Holy Injil with an open mind and heart and to compare both the Quranic and Biblical portrayals of Jesus’ Sonship! Even if the Muslim rejects the Biblical portrayal of Jesus’ Sonship after having seriously studied it, he should at least have understood the meaning of Jesus’ Sonship as the Bible portrays it!
A frame of reference more congenial to the Islamic portrayal of Jesus may further help Muslims in understanding Jesus as the Son of God. Among the many names used of Jesus in the Qur’an, three especially can help you elucidate the Christian understanding of His Sonship. Because Jesus was called in Bible also as in Qur’an:
1. ‘Abdu’llah — “Servant of God” (surah 19:30)
2. Rasulu’llah — “Apostle (messenger) of God” (surah 4:157)
3. Kalimatu’llah –”word of God” (surah 4:171)
1. The prime duty of a son is to honour and obey his father, to serve him freely and fully. The ideas of being a servant and a son are very closely related in the Holy Bible. The Christian Church has always regarded the great Servant Songs in the book of the prophet Isaiah as referring to Jesus the Messiah (Isaiah 42:1-4; 52:13-53:12, etc.). This Servant is called “my chosen One” by God. “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord” is upon Him (Isaiah 61:1). He heals the sick and helps the oppressed. He even suffers and bears the guilt of others and is vindicated by God. The early Christians used the same word found in the Servant Songs and referred to Jesus as God’s “holy Servant” (Acts 4:27,30). This Son indeed served the Father, not out of compulsion but because of His unity with the Father and out of love. Which servant serves better than a son? In Jesus, the son and servant are fused!
2. An apostle or messenger is “one sent” by God to proclaim His message. Jesus also is called an “apostle” in the Holy Injil (Hebrews 3:1). In the Gospel account according to John, the Son is very often spoken of as “the sent One”, and the two terms are almost synonymous. The other Gospel accounts use this terminology also, and the terms “Father” and “the sending One” are virtually synonymous too (Matthew 10:40; Mark 9:37: Luke 9:48). There have been many apostles who were sent by God. But the Apostle/Son was not only sent by God; He was also sent from God. He came forth from above, from God Himself (John 8:23,42) and so He is called “Immanu-el“, “God with us”. (Matthew 1:23)
Jesus’ parable of the absent landlord is very instructive in the whole matter of His Sonship. The landlord’s servants were unable to collect the rent for the vineyard he had planted and fully equipped and then let out to tenants. Finally, the landlord decided to send his son as his personal representative. The tenants killed him, thinking that thereby they had achieved victory and could take possession of the estate for themselves, but in the end they lost everything. (Matthew 21:33-43, etc.)
Plainly enough, the landlord and the son of the landlord in this parable represent the Father and the Son respectively. Whatever else the parable teaches, it clearly distinguishes between “the sent ones” and “the sent One,” the prophets and the Son, and the ultimate destiny of “the sent One.” Indeed, this parable is strange and unusual! Yet it is no stranger or more unusual than the Person and event to which the parable points.
Thus, it is clear for what purpose the Son has been sent by and from the Father: to reveal Him, to carry out His plan of salvation for mankind, to serve as His “personal” representative, and to expend Himself in the process (John 3:16f.; Romans 8:3,29; Galatians 4:4-7). In carrying out God’s saving will, the unique Son was to acquire many “brothers”, who, by following Him, also became God’s “sons” by His gracious adoption. Those who follow the obedient Servant/Son sent from the Father are also God’s obedient servants/sons, true “Muslims” (as the followers of Jesus are called in the Qur’an – surah 3:52; 5:111). Son/Servant/sent One/Saviour: all these are closely connected in the Holy Bible.
3. For Muslims, as for Christians, the Word of God is eternal, even as God is eternal. It is through His Word that God acts, creating and sustaining the universe and revealing His will. If one should refer to the Word of God among Muslims, they would naturally think of the Qur’an. However, many of them know that Jesus also is called “the word (Word?) of God” in the Qur’an. Even though they regard Jesus as only a prophet, could not their idea about His being “the word of God” be filled with the Biblical significance of the same expression? Some will say, “No!” Others have found this a very useful means for explaining Jesus’ relationship with the Father, including the concept of Sonship. As He is God’s eternal Word, so He is God’s eternal Son (John 1:14) . It may also help remove the deep-rooted misunderstandings about this relationship, leading Muslims to understand that Christians believe in only one God, that they do not set up the Son as another God, nor do they displace God by the Son, nor do they make a man into God.
Even among people we depend much on one’s word to know what a person wants and does, and what he is like. Through his word a man makes himself known, bringing out what is within him. We trust Abdullah because we trust Abdullah’s word. We trust Abdullah’s word because we trust Abdullah. We distinguish between Abdullah and his word and we equate Abdullah and his word. Both are true.
In a much different, higher and glorious way, the Word which proceeds from God gives expression to God’s will and to His acts, and also reveals what He is like in a comprehensible way. Thus the Holy Injil says:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God; all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men …. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father…. No one has ever seen God; the only Son, who is in the bosom  of the Father, he has made him known.” (RSV, John 1:1-4,14,18)
“This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him” (Mark 9:7)
“… in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son.” (Hebrews 1:2)
[1.] i.e., so intimately is He related to the Father. Should one recall that both the Qur’an and the Bible speak of “the hand of God”, “the face of God”, etc.?
[2.] “He has made Him known”: literally, from the original Greek language of the Holy Injil, “He has exegised (interpreted, explained) Him”. It is as if God had revealed His concealed heart through His enfleshed Word.
If a Muslim can accept that the Word of God, which is eternal as God Himself is eternal, can enter into the limitations of time and space and become available in book form, could he not also comprehend that this same Word might be made manifest as a human being? If on earth the uncreated Word of God in its created form of a book can be described as both uncreated and created, then cannot the uncreated Word of God in its created form of a human being be described as both uncreated and created, if the one God should so will it? That God has so willed is the testimony of the Holy Injil: God’s eternal self-expression, His Word, His Son, has entered human form as Jesus the Messiah.
We all know that God is the creator of all creation. We know that he continually points mankind to manifold signs in creation and in history which, in turn, point mankind beyond these signs to God Most High Himself as mankind’s creator and judge. We know that periodically He has intervened in creation’s history through prophets and apostles and the Scriptures. He has mediated through them, whereby He has offered mankind a pattern for life. Probably we all also agree that he bears witness to Himself through human conscience. In all these ways God reveals to us something about Himself so that we can know something about Him.
But does He reveal Himself? Can we know Him?
The response to these crucial questions is found in the astounding claims of Jesus:
“All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” (Matthew 11 :27)
“Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me?” (John 14:9,10)
Angels, persons and things can reveal to us something about God. But God alone can reveal God! It takes God to reveal Himself to mankind . It takes God to reveal Himself to mankind under created circumstances congenial to human understanding. What better way for the eternal revealer to be revealed to mankind on earth than by clothing His self-expression in human flesh!
In Jesus, His eternal Son, the revealer becomes also the revealed for us. This is why the Holy Bible speaks of Jesus as God manifested in the flesh. In turn, the revealed Son becomes the revealer of the Father among mankind. “Trust in God; trust also in me,” says Jesus (John 14:1). In inviting His hearers to trust Him, Jesus is not subtly deflecting trust away from God; rather He is simply affirming that God, forever Most High, is revealing Himself through Jesus by His presence in Jesus.
God, the revealer and the revealed. We would agree that God creates the world, appoints prophets, sends Scriptures and provides laws for human guidance. But can He Himself enter His own creation to be with us? Would this not be unworthy of Him? Would He not demean Himself thereby? Would not His entry into the world conflict with His sovereignty, cloud the brightness of His glory, and make Him less than greater?
God indeed is greater. To Him alone belong the kingdom, the power, and the glory. He alone is sovereign. But, we may ask, what is the nature of God’s sovereignty? And how does God Himself manifest the nature of His sovereignty so that humanity too can begin to understand the nature of His sovereignty? Stated otherwise, are we to understand God’s sovereignty simply as the sovereignty of any earthly potentate magnified to its ultimate degree? Does God Himself manifest His sovereignty over His creation by remaining aloof from it? Does He safeguard His sovereignty by insulating Himself in celestial serenity, far removed from the suffering and sin of this dying world? Or is it possible that our understanding of God’s sovereignty conflicts with His own understanding of His sovereignty; that His thoughts are not our thoughts and our ways are not His ways, even as God has declared through His prophet Isaiah (Isaiah 55:8)? Is it possible that God not only answers but even anticipates the yearning of this prophet: “Oh, that You would rend the heavens and come down…!”? (Isaiah 64:1)
According to the Bible, God is love. In Biblical perspective, by entering into this world, God does not demean Himself; rather He exalts Himself. By His visitation on earth, He does not cloud His glory; rather, He magnifies it among mankind. By His presence among us, He does not become the lesser; rather, He becomes the greater for our greater praise. By being not only above us but with us in Jesus Immanuel, He not only acts in conformity with Himself; even more, He is being Himself and He is being what He will be.
Finally, let us briefly summarize the Biblical meaning of Jesus as the Son of God, bearing in mind that 1. “the Lord our God, the Lord is one“ (Deuteronomy 6:4) and 2. the Holy Injil itself must be read to grasp the fuller meaning of Jesus’ Sonship through His servanthood:
1. The unique Son of God is of the Father eternally; by Him God created and sustains the universe. As God’s self-expression He is truly God.
2. Because God loved us, the unique Son of God entered time and space, was born of the Virgin Mary and was called Jesus the Messiah. As God’s self-expression on earth in the form of man He is also truly human.
3. The Son shares the attributes of the Father; He is like Him in powerful works and loving self-giving.
4. The Son has been sent by/from the Father as His representative to carry out His work of revelation and salvation.
5. The Son is the Father’s personal message, God expressing Himself and His love in a way that can be seen and heard and comprehended by humanity.
6. The Son serves the Father perfectly; the Father is also responsive to the will of the Son.
7. The Father and the Son are One in a unique relationship of complete mutuality between Master and Servant, sending One and sent One, revealed One and revealing One.
8. Those who believe in the unique Son of God sent by God, God’s personal Good News” (“Evangel” or “Injil”), and who follow Him, can become His “brothers and “sisters”; they can become adopted, obedient children of God.

I love just your questions. And I have answers. All Arabs should see my answers too.
We should worship God in the Spirit and the Truth. There is NO madness in our God! Bible is TRUTH and God in Bible is HOLY and TRUTH! But we need to find Him to get to His Kingdom and not to hell.
The problem is that God is NOT human being. God Jesus, please save my brother Bahy. Be his God and Savior and Father. God Father ddopt him and give him everything what You have! As to Your Son Jesus. Amen.
Look at my replies to my Arab brother:
I will rely to your questions:
1. How come a man become a god?- God decided to send His Son Jesus Christ to the earth to reveal God….that God is LOVE and peace. God is NOT human being and Son of God is NOT human being. But Son of God was incarnated in the body of human being to live with us in our world. Jesus healed people, resurrected them and was teaching about WHO is TRUE God and how come to him.
2. Ho come God allow other people to kill him? To hanging him?- God is God of LOVE and Peace. If Jesus would kill His enemies then He would be God of war. But He just could not disown Himself. So, He was TRUE and REAL peace. That’s why when people insulted Him, beat Him and spat to His face He didn’t do the same. He was from other world. Like alien. He was from world of Justice and LOVE. Because His nature and essence is LOVE. Before people killed Him he prayed His God Father NOT to punish them for their sins and forgive them.
3. Was the god weak and could not protect Himself from Jewish whom killed Him?- His power was in His LOVE. He decided that better to be weak and not revenge then revenge and BE God of war and hatred. He decided that He will be such as He is and moreover He willingly accepted His death. Jesus could protect Himself. But He decided to protect us and Arabs by accepting ALL our sins to His body. He NOT only died on the cross, but He accepted all our sins and iniquities to His body like rams during hajj are killed to commemorate that son of Ibrahim was not killed by God but kept alive! The same way like this symbol of Jesus and His sacrifice in Islam, He –Jesus Christ- died to forgive all your sins through our FAITH in Him. God resurrected Jesus! He is ALIVE! And we will be alive with Him if we will follow Him and believe in Him!
4. How come God feel hungry? Thirsty? Is the God eat and drink? Is the God die?- God Jesus was in human body like water was poured into vessel. Body is created by God and water and food essentials for our living process.
May God bless you and save you all!
Dalia and Isser salam, thank u for message:Qur’an recommends Muslims to be good to non-Muslims. - It is interesting statement. We should always REMEMBER calls of Qur’an to behead people!
9:5. But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
Is it not compulsion? No. It is Islamic peace… BUT we – followers of Jesus Christ-have another peace…PEACE of the different world- God’s world!
Muslims, these above Suras are NOT abrogated by your Allah! So, please behead me for the sake of Islam. And you MANY Muslims would like to do it! In Hezbollah and followers of Al-Qaida. You know brothers, they are happy to do it. But why? Because Qur’an states it! And they just want to be obedient to Allah and Qur’an. So, the same way like you they hate Jews and are followers of PEACEful religion. We would NEVER know what is peace if only JESUS would not be TRUE example and TRUE REPRESENTATION of the God of PEACE! He is representation of His God who loved us untill the death of His beloved Son. He loved us before He decided to create us. And He continues loving us now. That’s why He commanded NOT to kill anyone. ALL who will kill any person is considered by Him as killer and result of such life will be HELL. Hell will be like prison for us if we will disobey this GREAT – AKBAR and PERFECT God! He was tortured, beated, insulted and people spat to His face. Did He kill any one of them? No. He asked and prayed God Father to forgive their sins. He didnt call God to behead them! It is PEACE. Peace during His life, before and NOW. All who are following Islamic Jihad (in any form of it) will die in hell. Because you dont follow the ONE God of TRUE Peace. If you want -behead us. We are immortal. Our God gave us eternal life and we are like Him..His sons…who have FUTURE and His Kingdom. Be part of His Kingdom too! He is waiting you! he will be waiting untill the last secnd of your life!
“Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just”. - it is just ONE of hundreds of discreption of Islam: kill…later Allah said be good. Our God Jesus said:
11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”
12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”
14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie. Revelation 22:11
Unlike Christians and others .. It hadn’t been proven historically that Muslim conquerors had committed any offense of genocide or any ethnic cleansing. Principles of Islam urging them not to do so. - Sister, true followers of Jesus Christ- people who are called by God ‘born again’- are forbidden by God to kill! All who killed or killing Muslims for the sake of any religion are considered by God as murderers and according to the words of Jesus above they will find themselves in hell soon. Be we with you Arabs will be saved. IF WE WILL BELIEVE and FOLLOW God Jesus!
* Islamic conquests were the most merciful wars of mankind .. They were moral, humanitarian & editorial wars. - all Muslims according to words of Jesus are in hell now…they wars are NOTHING for God because He is God of PEACE and He hates wars!
* Islamic conquests were a religion that was spreading .. And the doctrine that was penetrating. - Yes. Doctrine which is pulling you to hell. But God is fighting for your soul with evil spirits to save you from death to LIVE with Him
* Muslims weren’t intruders in countries as claimed by biased people. - Muslims, should enter the promissed LAND or the Kingdom of Heaven through FAITH in God Jesus to be partakers of FUTURE with God.
* The Crusader occupation was and still .. Land raped .. Resources loot .. And enslavement of the peoples. – YES. It is just the way and result of this way of true unbelievers in Jesus…war…enslavement by sins…all environment of hell in their lives…BUT let’s GET out OF HELL Brothers, Muslim! Jesus is ABLE to SAVE YOU FROM HELL OF YOUR LIVES! Put your TRUST in Him. Believe in Him! He is our LIFE!
Jesus, save please Dalia and Isser. Be their God and Savior! Amen.
Dear Lord, I give you my hands to do Your work; I give You my feet to go Your way; I give You my eyes to see as You see; I give You my tongue to speak Your words; I give You my mind that You may think in me; I give You my spirit that You may pray in me. Above all, I give You my heart that You may love in me – love the Father and love all humankind. I give You my whole self, Lord, that You may grow in me, so that it is You who lives, works and prays in me. Amen.

Our Heavenly Father,
You alone are to be lifted up on high, worshipped and glorified. The Amighty, You are beautiful in all Your ways, pure and righteous – above all others. You are the Savior, I choose to worship! You loved me first without reservation, even to the sacrifice on the Cross at Calvary. You reach out from heaven to this earth and willingly draw us to Yourself. You provide all our needs – and You charge us to trust in You and live a life of peace.
I bow before my Lord, this day knowing You are here, knowing You alone are worthy of my worship and praise. My heart quickens at the very real knowledge of Your Presence – and Your hope floods through my veins causing me to bow down and rejoice. There is none like You, Father, and this new day I ask You to transform my heart into Your likeness. I seek after You in all I do, think, and feel — and I willingly lay down my life surrendering all for Your glory – and for the good of Your kingdom needs and Your kingdom people.
I do not have all the answers, Father , and I never will! I do have a faith that increases daily, and I have been blessed through Your Holy Spirit with a trust and a hope that can only be explained by His divine intervention in my life.
Today I am charging up the mountain path , avoiding all the switchbacks placed in my way. I am following after You, Father, propelled along by the power of Your Holy Spirit. I am not seeking after reward, fame, security, all the things the world values. I am seeking after love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, and self control. I am looking out with renewed eyes, renewed hope, and my faith is being lifted up on eagle’s wings.
How, my Father, could I ever find words, emotions or feelings to thank You as You deserve to be thanked? How is it even possible to understand the depth of gratitude I have in my heart, it’s a mystery to me.
Thank you Father
Praise your Holy Name
