Allah in Christianity
by Sazie Johnson
Space is big — very, very big.
It is a vast, ever-expending cosmos that stretches beyond the point of human conceivability. Space is mindboggling; it overwhelms the human thought as one considers earth is but a tiny dot in the enormous cosmic unknown.
One Muslim sent me a video which attempts to show the insignificance of our tiny earth in comparison to the thousands, and perhaps millions, of other worlds out there in space.
“Do you really think the Creator of all these worlds, and many, many more unknown, will come to this earth — this tiny dot to die?”
That is a very good question. After watching the video and considering his question, I must admit for a moment I was about to re-think my position on the “Death of Christ”. But then there is a thing called “Love,” which is a divine characteristic of God. We must understand that God is “Love”. We read this in 1st John 4:8 where it states: “He that loves not, know not God; for God is love.”
We must also understand that God is subjected to “His Own Word”. In other words, God must obey and submit to whatever the “Word of God” says. In Proverbs 11:1 we reads, “A false balance (scale) is a disgrace to the LORD: but a just weight (scale) is his delight.”
What is a false balance? It is a scale or a measurement that tilts or leans toward one side. It is also a scale that measures inaccurately, and says to you: “This inaccurate measurement is for you — not for me.” Such a false scale is a disgrace to the LORD. Therefore; God must not subject Himself to a false scale, but rather to a just weight or a just balance that measures accurately. A just balance says, “This accurate measurement is for you as equally as it is for me.” And thus, God is subjected to “His Own Word,” which is an accurate measurement for Him and for us. To say a “Word” and not be accountable to those words is to stain (tarnish, soil) the holy reputation of God. Therefore; God must subject Himself to “His Own Word.”
What is the “Word of God” to which God must be subjected? John 15:13 is the “Word of God”. It says, “Greater love has no man than this — that a man lays down his life for his friends.” In other words, “No man has a greater love than the one who dies for his friends.” All through life we have seen or read about people who demonstrate this “Greater Love” by putting their lives in danger for the sake of others. We have heard of mothers who endured sufferings and hardships, even unto death, in order to save their daughters from harm. According to the Word of God, these mothers have demonstrated the “Greater Love”. A father may risk death and be killed for running into a burning building to save his family. He, too, demonstrates the “Greater Love”. Brothers and sisters are dying in hospital beds for donating their bloods and/or their body parts for family members. We have heard of soldiers on battlefields who knowingly ran into the lines of fire and took the bullets in order to save the lives their comrades. All of these brave and honorable people have demonstrated the “Greater Love” — they laid down their lives for their friends.
We are also told in Holy Scripture: “If a person knows how to do a good thing, and he does not do it, then it is accountable to him as a sin.” That puts God in a tight spot (jam), because He, Himself, knows how to do a good thing. If He knowingly is aware of how to do a good thing, and He does not do it, then it is accountable to Him as a sin. As you can see, it seems more difficult to be God, who knows how to do all good things, than to be man, who does not know how to do all good things. God must subject Himself to His Own Word. To do otherwise is to have abomination (a false scale) before God.
What do we know so far about God? We know three things: (1) God is “Love”; (2) we know God is subjected to His Own Word; and (3) we know God is compared by His Very Own Nature do good things since He, Himself, knows very much how to do good things. We must also add this: God cannot and must not be beaten or overtaken in a character that defines Him. What is the character that defines God? Love — “God is Love.” Therefore; no soldier, or mother, or father must defeat God at demonstrating love.
Let me also add that love cannot accept defeat. The day love accepts defeat is the day it is no longer called “love”, but justice. Love has two purposes: (1) to extend itself, and (2) to be received. Love, in its truest cause, cannot accept defeat. Thus God, who Himself is “Love” and who, Himself, is also subjected to His Own Word, cannot and must not allow another to overtake Him or to defeat Him in love. Since the greater demonstration of love is to lay down a life for another, the challenge is placed at the feet of God to demonstrate the greatest love; because in front of God is a just scale that says, “This measurement is for you as equally as it is for me.”
It is true that space is huge — very huge. The universe is vast and ever expending beyond the point of human conceivability. It is God who created space and all that is beyond; and yet it is demons (the enemies of God) who contest (challenge) space and all that is beyond. Now every squad foot of God’s huge space is a contested battlefield where the enemies of God are determined to beat or to overtake God at every turn. Even our tiny earth is a contested ground where God must defend His Characters and His Attributes. God cannot and must not a take second place in the very things that make Him to be God. God’s love for mankind cannot and must not accept defeat. God, contested by demons in every squad foot of space in the vast universe and beyond, and as men and women demonstrate the “Greater Love” by laying down their live for others, God, who knows how to do good things, must not only subject Himself to His Own Word, but He must also uphold His Very Own Character even as to die for the sins of only one man.
There is no other god known to man who subjects himself to his own words in order to uphold his own character like the Biblical God. We can therefore say, “There is no other god, but God.”
Earlier you noticed the Muslim, in his question, said, “…The Creator of all these worlds…died (on a tiny dot called earth).”
Let me explain the Holy Trinity in relationship to what he said. Christianity is monotheism — the study of one God. When we say God (singular), we mean the indivisible (un-divided) union of Father, Word of God, and Spirit of God. It is not the “God the Father” who died for the sins of men and women, nor is it “God the Spirit” who died for the sins of men and women. It was the “Word of God” /Kalimat-Ullah who clothed Himself in human flesh. It is He who dwelled among men, and it is he who died for the sins of men and women.
It is an accurate statement to say, “God died for the sins of men and women.”But it is accurate only in the Christian assertion (declaration) that “He who is of God died for the sins of men and women.” In other words, the Spirit called “God the Word” clothed Himself in a human flesh and died for the sins of men and women.
Question: Can a spirit cloth himself in a human flesh? The Quran has no problem with a spirit who cloths himself in human flesh and dwelling among men. We see a similar incident in the Quran where a spirit called Gabriel clothed himself in human flesh and visited the Virgin Mary. Quran 19:17 reads “So she (Mary) took a veil (to screen herself) from them; then We sent to her Our spirit, and there appeared to her a well-made man.”
According to that verse, this Gabriel existed in the very presence of Allah before assuming a human body; and he could have said the very words which Jesus said: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, before Abraham was, I am.” (John 8:58) In other words, “I existed before Abraham was born.” And so did Jesus. He existed with God before He was born.
Jesus speaks in John 8:24:
“I said unto you that you will die in your sin,
if you do not believe I am who I claim to be;
you will die in your sin.”
Summary: I want to tell you one important thing. It does not matter who you were BEFORE Jew or Pakistani lady, if you TURN to God then YOU BELIEVE in this God! So, our CHRISTIAN God is Jesus! That’s why we believe in this ONE Creator of the universe! If your past beliefs did not teach you about Him, then TURN your heart to Him and START complying your life with HIS statements! You should NOT change God to be ‘your own god’ created by you! But you yourself SHOULD be TRANSFORMED and CHANGED by His Truth. That’s why if you do not agree with His statements that He is God, then you SHOULD agree with them, if you do NOT want to perish! So, we should not create our own God, but COMPLY with His TRUTH revealed to us about Him in His Holy Scripture! We should SUBMIT and COMMIT our hearts to Him because He –Jesus –Kalimat-Ullah-is the TRUTH, the LIFE and the ONLY Way to God the Father!
We even could not use this word Trinity! But we SHOULD accept and believe to the words of God said about Him. In many Scriptures we clearly see that Jesus/’Isa is God! If you do NOT accept that He is God, you do not accept God! It is so easy.
He called us to proclaim the TRUTH. During the Judgment Day it will be too late to start believing in Him! The Day of Salvation is today, no matter if you like it or not! Again, the Scripture said you are CONDEMNED by God already now if you do NOT believe that Isa is God! (John 3:16-21). I do not condemn you but God did it! Read about it in the verse mentioned by me above. Now you know the Truth and you have a chance to be born by God or not (it is YOUR choice). Why should you be born by God? Because God said that only BORN AGAIN or BORN by God people will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven! Be reconciled with God before His Judgment.
We all –Christians- believe that Jesus is God, the Creator of the universe, the Messiah, The Son of God and the King of Jews, Arabs and all nations. Who do not believe that He is God will be judged by God during the Judgment Day. Let’s read about it now:
John 8 (New King James Version)
1 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
Jesus Defends His Self-Witness
13 The Pharisees therefore said to Him, “You bear witness of Yourself; Your witness is not true.”
Jesus Predicts His Departure
21 Then Jesus said to them again, “I am going away, and you will seek Me, and will die in your sin. Where I go you cannot come.”
The Truth Shall Make You Free
31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Abraham’s Seed and Satan’s
37 “I know that you are Abraham’s descendants, but you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you. 38 I speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have seen with your father.”
Before Abraham Was, I AM
48 Then the Jews answered and said to Him, “Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?”
HE POST RAPTURE SURVIVAL GUIDE
by Kurt Seland
from the web page Rapture Ready
The purpose of this manual is twofold:
(a) First of all, it is to warn those who receive this manual prior to the “rapture” of the soon to occur events that will take place in the “last days” as foretold in the Bible. Based on what the Bible has to say about future events, nobody in their right mind would want live on earth after the rapture. Hopefully many will read, believe, seek God, repent and be saved. Salvation is very simple, so simple to attain that most people cannot accept it. However, it is complex because it is life changing and based on that which we cannot see; it is based on faith. Simple, because Jesus does all the work. If you want to be saved and have eternal life, simply pray in belief and humility to Lord Jesus:
“Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and ask you to forgive me of my sins and prepare for me a new heart. I surrender my life to you.”
Now change the way you live your life so that it is in accordance with God’s laws.
If you have done this prior to the rapture, get a Bible and start reading and studying it. Go to the Lord in prayer every day asking for guidance as to how to live.
b) Second, to those left behind after the rapture, this is indeed a survival manual. You still have an opportunity to repent and have eternal life. The same prayer of salvation is applicable to you; the only difference is that you will spend a little time experiencing a taste of hell while you remain on earth.
Let me be real frank with you. If you are reading this manual and the rapture has already occurred, then you probably are not going to physically survive; you most likely will die. This manual is about the survival of your soul. You are going to go through terrible suffering. The only question is whether you will go to Heaven or go to hell when you die.
1. Definition: Rapture- This is the event that will occur when Jesus calls His followers (both gentile and Jewish believers) with a trumpet blast, and in the “twinkling of an eye” they will be removed from the earth and transported to be with Jesus in the heavens. For those of Jewish heritage who are familiar with the seven feasts of the Old Testament that are celebrated each year, the rapture is portrayed by the feast of trumpets described at Leviticus 23:24. The Jewish feast of trumpets symbolized a regathering. At the trumpet call of the rapture, it will be a regathering of believers to be with Jesus, and for the Jews left behind on earth it will be the final regathering to the physical nation of Israel.
Interestingly, those who have died and are followers of Jesus will respond first to the call (I Thess 4:16). It very well may be that, as it happened when Jesus was crucified and resurrected, when the dead saints arose from the dead and walked amongst the living (Matthew chapter 27), that at the rapture the dead saints may walk briefly on earth again.
2. Biblical Foundation for the Rapture
“Take notice, I am telling you a secret. We shall not all die but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet call. For the trumpet will sound and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall all be changed.” I Corinthians 15:51-52
“For with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and the trumpet of God, the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven, and those who died in Christ will rise first. Afterward we, the living who remain, will be caught up along with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we shall forever be with the Lord.” I Thessalonians 4:16-17
“…For I am going away to prepare a place for you. And when I have gone and have prepared a place for you, I will come again and take you to Myself so that where I am, you also will be.” John 14:2-3
3. Events and Circumstances Prior to the Rapture
At the time that this manual is being written, and for the remainder of the time left in this age, the one word that describes the condition of the world is change. All this change is being accomplished through the work of Satan, as he can not tolerate anything that originated from God’s creation. Originally, the Bible tells us that when God created the world He declared that it was “good”. That means that it was perfect and no changes were necessary. Included in His creation were standards to live by that He gave to Adam and Eve. These standards covered everything from how to live in our private lives to domestic relationships to principles for governing a community. Satan seeks to change everything that God has created and established, thus he has used his power and influence in the world to make changes. None of these changes are good for humankind because all of these changes are opposed to God’s original intent. Satan’s goal is to establish a world order headed by his protege (the world dictator known in the Bible as the Beast and anti-christ) who will spend his time and effort changing everything to be in opposition to God’s will as expressed in the Bible. This is predicted in the Bible in the book of Daniel, “and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law.”
In today’s (1996) political environment there is no effective leadership in the world. Every nation lacks strong and competent leaders able to deal with the problems at home and abroad. The United States, which has been the world leader for the last 50 years, has steadily lost its influence among other nations because of political leaders in the United States who have no moral center to direct their decision making process. However, this distrust and dislike of government and government leaders is not just an American phenomenon but is a common theme worldwide: Europe, South America and Asia. Because of this leadership vacuum in the world, there is now an opportunity for a man to arise who is very charismatic, strong, and attractive to peoples of all nations. Based on the prophecies in the Bible such a man will arise, and he will be successful in uniting the various nations to rule as a dictator.
The move to unite the world under one government has been active since the early 1900’s, and in the 1990’s this became more of a reality as the nations of this world began to give up their sovereignty to the United Nations during armed intervention of conflicts between nations (Kuwait, Somalia, Bosnia). In these conflicts, the nations of the world contributed manpower and machinery to be used under the flag of the United Nations. The United States of America surrendered its sovereignty in these situations to much weaker nations by allowing its military to be controlled by these nations. In addition to these military actions the nations of the world also agreed to controlled trade and labor practices with international treaties such as NAFTA and GATT.
Thus in the 1990’s there is no dominant nation to provide leadership to the world setting the stage for a man to arise out of the masses to unite the world as dictator.
The foundational building block of society, that element which has always been responsible for social order and peace, is the family, and it has been virtually destroyed. The family is to be a man, his wife and their children. The man provides for the wife and children, the wife nurtures and educates the children, and the children obey their parents. In a community of families, each adult holds the other adults and children accountable for their actions. The family is based on marriage.
Marriage is an institution of God and therefore hated by Satan. Satan has worked very hard, primarily through communications media such as TV, movies, news journalists, and entertainment in general to convince women that marriage is detrimental to their freedom and fulfillment in life. Satan has deceived women into believing that they are the same as men and that all differences are the result of culture. Satan has worked very hard to convince women that their sexual gratification should come from outside of marriage, preferably with other women. Satan has worked hard to divide men and women and have them at war with one another, and because of this, the violence between men and women dramatically increased beginning in the 1980’s. After the rapture, more than likely, the family as it is known today will be eliminated. Children will become wards of the state and marriage will be discouraged.
Civil war has been the theme of the 1980’s and 1990’s and will continue into the end times: man vs. women, black vs. white, Moslem vs. Jew, Catholic vs. Protestant, Moslem vs. Christian, one Moslem faction vs. another Moslem faction, one black African tribe vs. another black African tribe, nation vs. nation, people vs. people. Whatever divides people into different groups Satan uses to inspire hate, strife and violence.
Homosexuality and all sorts of perverse behavior have come to be accepted as normal. The world dictator(anti-christ) himself will not have the normal sexual attraction to women and may be asexual. Many theologians believe that he will probably be openly homosexual as indicated in the Bible in the book of Daniel 11:37; “and he will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the desire of women…”. And therefore after the rapture more than likely marriage will be discouraged or illegal, and homosexual and lesbian relationships highly encouraged.
On the economic scene the trend is toward poverty for the masses with wealth concentrated into the hands of very few people. These controllers of the wealth will be the kings of commerce and banking and also be the power behind politics of the world. Small businesses are merged into larger companies and the larger companies merge with themselves to increase profits. The result is huge multi-national companies that have no allegiance to any community, state, nation or people, whose only allegiance is to increased profits for management and shareholders. The result is workers who are little more than peasants and presidents of companies who are more and more kings. It will be these “kings” who usher in the world dictator to protect their wealth and power. Expect all commerce, buying and selling, to be controlled by a mark on the right hand or forehead of every person who wants to participate in the economy. Only those people with the mark will be able to buy and sell, but the consequences of taking the mark is eternal damnation. Therefore don’t take that mark. You will have a very difficult time surviving, and probably won’t, but you will save your soul. Again, don’t take the mark on your right hand or forehead.
Another thing that will come back into vogue after the rapture will be slavery. The book of Revelation speaks of the slave trade after the rapture. The slaves will more than likely be Jews and Christians (those who converted after the rapture) but there will also be many children and poor that will be caught into slavery.
In the gospel of Matthew chapter 24 Jesus spoke to his disciples and indicated to them that one of the signs of the time of the end of the world would be, “…as it were in the days of Noah so will the coming of the son of man be…” We read in Genesis that in the days of Noah that “the earth was filled with violence…”. This speaks not only of the violence that men inflict on one another for certainly the earth is filled with that kind of violence; wars, civil wars, rape, brutality, murder, abortion, indiscriminate random acts of violence but the earth itself is also filled with violence. We see increasing earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, draught, lightening storms and unusual atmospheric phenomena. While all of these have existed in the past, over the last 50 years the number and intensity of these conditions and the property damage associated with these natural catastrophes has increased. As the level of violence that the human species has inflicted on one another has increased, so has the violent reaction of the earth increased.
4. Signs of the Times
When Jesus disciples asked Him about the signs that would be a precursor to His coming and the end of the age He responded that there would be (Matthew chapter 24):
5. The Rapture
This is an event that will not be hidden. The concept of the rapture will be made known to the disbelieving masses (those of you who do not know Jesus as your Lord and Messiah) before it occurs. It will be treated with ridicule, contempt and mockery by the world’s media, but God will see to it that it will be highly publicized before it occurs just so that those left behind might still come to their senses. It will occur in the open, and everybody left behind will know somebody that was raptured. It will happen suddenly, unexpectedly, and lightning fast–“in the twinkling of an eye” as the Bible puts it. And there will be evidence all over the world that this event occurred. Some national leaders will disappear, celebrities in entertainment and professional sports will disappear, entire families will disappear, disbelieving spouses will see their mates vanish, children will disappear. Bank accounts, homes, cars, businesses and relationships will be left behind. The problem for the world’s leaders will be trying to convince people that it didn’t happen. Because if the world’s leaders admit that it did happen then logically everything Christians preached about Jesus Christ being the Son of God, the Savior, the Messiah, the Prince of Peace, the Lord of Lords and King of Kings and everything that Jesus preached and taught must be true. And if all of this is true, then the only logical response would be to fall on one’s knees before God in confession and repentance and absolute submission to every word of God (as revealed in the Bible). But all of this is diametrically opposed to the way of the world which preaches freedom from the constraints of God’s word, perverse sex, materialism and the devaluation of human life. So, although the rapture will shock everybody and will be covered in the media and everybody left will be aware of someone who is gone the leaders of the world will begin their great deception, that is convincing the population left behind that there was no rapture. How is this going to be accomplished? Well, pretty easily because most of the people left behind are already in a state of deception. They have been deceived into believing that Jesus is not the Messiah; they have been deceived into believing that the word of God is not true; they have been deceived into living in a lifestyle that only brings constant pain and suffering instead of the freedom and paradise that God offers. The world’s leaders will declare that there was no rapture, that a mass hysteria took place, and the news media will follow the party line. Then to make things easier, shortly after the rapture, one-fourth of the world’s population will be decimated due to wars, famine and plague. Those who were raptured will be counted as amongst the dead.
6. After the Rapture
Shortly after the rapture, a seven year period known in the Bible as the Great Tribulation will take place. It will begin with the signing of a peace agreement between Israel and her enemies and it will end with the physical return of Jesus Christ to set up His kingdom on earth. In between will be seven years of terror for those on earth. The following events and trends will take place in that seven year period :
7. The Two Witnesses
These two men are God’s gift to the people of the earth who refused to submit to the lordship of Jesus Christ prior to the rapture, but who will recognize the error in their life and seek God knowing the terrible mistake they have made. These two men will proclaim the gospel and provide hope for those left behind. Their message is for the salvation of the soul and to eternal life. They will have no message as to how you can avoid the hell that life on earth has become, because there is no hope to avoid that tribulation. If you are left on earth, then your destiny is to suffer and more than likely die. But you still have the hope of salvation. Listen to what these two men are preaching and turn to God.
The Bible does not say who these two men are. Many speculate that they are Elijah and Enoch, two ancient prophets of God who never died. Regardless, they will be responsible for many of the natural catastrophes that will reek havoc on the property and economy of the earth. They will have the power to prevent rain, and there will be a 3 1/2 year draught on earth until they die. They will turn water into blood and cause all kinds of plagues on earth and in general make life miserable for those who are living on earth. Also, they will be invincible, as many will try to kill them only to be killed by their own hands. Those who attempt to blow them up will themselves be blown up; those who attempt to shoot them will have their guns explode in their hands; those who attempt to poison them will be poisoned by their own efforts. Only the world dictator will be able to kill them and only when God allows it.
The purpose of all the misery that these two witnesses inflict on the earth dwellers is to turn people back to God in repentance. The misery will be so great that when the world dictator does finally kill these two the world will rejoice in a Christmas-like celebration, giving gifts to one another. Three and one-half days after their death they will be resurrected and in full view of the entire population of the world ascend to heaven at the command of God when He calls them to “Come up here”. Shortly after he kills the two witnesses, the world dictator will declare himself to be God. He is the anti-christ.
8. The 144,000 Jewish Witnesses
Shortly after the rapture, God will call His army of 144,000 Jewish believers into service to provide a voice of hope for Jews throughout the world. The best friends and most staunch supporters of Jews have always been true believing Christians. It was this element of the world’s population that provided help and support for Israel and Jewish people. The rapture removed the Christian people from the earth and awakened the 144,000 to their purpose. These 144,000 preach to Jews worldwide that Jesus is the Messiah. These 144,000 will be spread out worldwide and more than likely go about in pairs, two by two, as Jesus instructed His disciples to do. It will be these 144,000 who will oppose Israel signing a peace treaty for protection; it will be the 144,000 who will identify the anti-christ for who he is; it will be the 144,000 who will warn Israel of the treachery of the anti-christ, and it will be the 144,000 who will lead the Jews worldwide to the hiding place prepared for them by God in the Judean desert. These 144,000 Jews are going to be strange people by normal standards: they will be celibate, very bold, fearless, spiritually strong and probably very much like John the Baptist.
Hard currency will become obsolete. This is no surprise, as banks and governments have been working to eliminate currency, coin money and paper transactions for decades. Currency and coin is expensive to produce, lends itself to readily for drug trafficking and, with high tech equipment, is too easily counterfeited. Banks desire to eliminate the teller position as an expense item, and with the elimination of paper checks and currency, all financial transactions can be handled with a computer. The debit card will become the tool for all personal financial transactions. However, at some point after the rapture, probably right after the two witnesses are killed, everyone will be required to get a mark on their right hand or forehead in order to buy and sell. Do not, do not, do not under any circumstances participate by receiving this mark. All those who receive this mark known as “the mark of the beast” are doomed for eternity. By taking this mark you are swearing allegiance to the anti-christ. You may as well attempt to enjoy life as best you can because eternity for you will be hell. It is at this point that God will have separated His followers from Satan’s followers. Those who have taken the mark will persecute those without the mark. God will render judgment on those with the mark by inflicting them with a disgusting looking and very painful ulcer covering their bodies. This will remove much of the pleasure left in their life including making sexual relations almost, if not completely, impossible. So how can a person without the mark survive and still buy and sell? Again, this will almost be impossible, but there will be people who are part of the anti-christ’s regime who don’t believe in the anti-christ, they are just “survivors” who pick the “winner” and seek to profit from that relationship. Therefore, save up for yourself gold; gold has always had value as money and always will, even in a cashless society. Identify one of these profiteers and seek to purchase food and living supplies from him. However, don’t ever disclose to him how much gold you have and where it is. You want to be more valuable to him as a dealer than as a bounty. By the way, you will have a price on your head for not taking the mark. Obviously you won’t be living an open life, as you will be in hiding somewhere at a remote location or in the forest on the outskirts of a large city. Your only goal will be to eat to live and hope to escape the militia hunting for you and those like you. Should you get caught, your fate will be either death or slavery. If you receive this manual before the rapture and plan to be around after the rapture, then start storing up food and living supplies and put them into hiding in some remote and difficult to access area. You should include weaponry to defend yourself and medical supplies as part of your living supplies.
10. Safety Concerns
This era will be the most violent of times in the history of the world. Death, brutality and destruction will be part of everyday life. One of the defining characteristics of the last days following the rapture will be a lack of peace. There will be civil wars throughout the world: people will kill one another indiscriminately, random acts of violence will fill people with fear. Car jackings, home invasions, drive by shootings, bombings will all increase with an intensity that will leave people with absolutely no sense of security.
In order to survive this time, you need to remove yourself from society and live in a remote area that is difficult to access. Getting together with a group of like-minded people would provide additional support and safety. As mentioned earlier, stock up on food, medicines, living supplies, weaponry and gold. You will need enough for 7 years. Don’t plan on being able to supplement your food with hunting and fishing because the stocks of wild animals and fish will have been depleted and destroyed by the 3 1/2 year worldwide draught and three successive meteor-like or comet-like objects that strike the earth sometime after the rapture. The 3 1/2 year draught is brought on by the two witnesses. The first object from outer space to strike the earth will destroy 1/3 of all trees and all the green grass on earth. The second object, more like a meteor, strikes the sea and destroys 1/3 of all sea creatures and 1/3 of all shipping. The third object turns 1/3 of all fresh water poisonous and kills many people. Needless to say all of this will also seriously deplete the food supplies for the world’s population causing food prices to skyrocket. Those people in the world who never before missed a meal or worried about food will become very familiar with hunger pangs and the feeling of going without food for long periods of time. This will be one of the causes of the increased violence as people become more self centered, short tempered, and competitive for the food sources in short supply. As Jesus spoke to His disciples about these days He said, “people will betray one another and hate one another…the love of many will grow cold.”
11. Health Concerns
Prior to the rapture, the world experienced an increase in health related catastrophes, an increase in new infectious diseases and an increase in the return of diseases thought to have been eradicated or brought under control. The 1980’s and 1990’s brought on AIDS, EBOLA virus, flesh eating bacteria, the return of tuberculosis, incurable gonorrhea, herpes and many other virtually incurable sexually transmitted diseases. After the rapture things do not get better, as one quarter of the world’s population will die as the result of wars, famine and plague. Sometime after the two witnesses are murdered and after people are required to take the mark on the right hand or forehead, there will be a terrible plague causing a loathsome and malignant ulcer on the bodies of those who have taken the mark. This will be a very ugly and very painful sore that will make life miserable for those who have it. This sore will cover the body and remove the pleasure from sexual relations. People will avoid sexual relations due to the pain.
In addition to all this, because of the poor economic situation worldwide and the 3 1/2 year draught that depletes the worlds supply of water, sanitation practices will deteriorate even in what were advanced nations in Europe and North America. With the short supply of water, there won’t be sufficient water for flushing toilets, taking baths, washing clothes and transporting wastewater to treatment facilities. This will result in the increase of typhus, cholera, salmonella and E.coli infections.
However, since you have decided to reject Christ’s offer to join in the rapture, your concern is how to maintain good health in the post rapture era. You must build a supply of multiple vitamins with particular emphasis on anti-oxidants such as C and E and minerals. It will also be necessary to have a supply of disinfectants, particularly one that can be added to water to make it potable.
Above all, do not accept the mark of the beast on your right hand or forehead. If you do take the mark then nothing can be done for you — you will suffer the malignant ulcer making the rest of your life almost unbearable. Did you ever have a canker sore in your mouth? If so, then you know how painful that was—just one little canker sore. Now think of having canker sores all over your body, on your genitalia, in your mouth. Think how painful and unbearable your life will be. Don’t take that mark.
God Jesus said,
“I am the WAY and the TRUTH and the LIFE.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Arabs and Muslims,
be SAVED by God RIGHT NOW!
Brothers, Islam and the Bible call Jesus as Kalimat-Ullah- WORD of Allah!
Will you reject God by rejecting His SON?
Look if you will reject Son, it means you dont believe in His Father Allah. It means you are AGAINST Allah.
Islam came later after prophecies of Allah already existed that His Son Jesus will save the world from sins. So, what is Islam? ONE of religions. Look brother, there are millions religions and all they worship millions of gods which are called by God of Ibrahim as IDOLS.
Way for people worshiping idols is hell. Islam is among them. Why? Because Islam makes God of our father Ibrahim a LIAR by claiming that there is NO Son of God. Islam is closing eyes of Muslims to the words of Allah. Which man on the earth is able to BEAR INIQUITIES of the world? Sins of people? How SERVANT canJUSTIFY many people? It is impossible for a man. But only for God! We worship perfect God. He DIED instead on us. His name is the most perfect – Jesus….Isa Ibn Allah…Isa Allah…Issa Al Massih. And He is God of our father Ibrahim. Turn from sins to HIM and LIVE eternally as son of God!
Be saved right NOW
How to LIVE with God Jesus?
2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, PERFECTING HOLINESS IN THE FEAR OF GOD.
Hebrews 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may SERVE GOD ACCEPTABLY WITH REVERENCE AND GODLY FEAR
Fellowship with God
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.
Can you call Jesus the Son of God? Is He God in your life? Have you given Him absolute control of your life and future?If not, do is right NOW!
Pray now to the LORD and accept His forgiveness of all your sins through FAITH in His Son – God Jesus Christ!
Pray God right now And be saved!
God is bringing Judgement. Return of the Lord Jesus and His Judgement day should make difference in our behavior. Live your best in purity. Be excited about meeting with the Lord. You should anxiously await with joiful anticipation of the Lord’s return. If your hearts is filled with anticipation, excitement and joy, it indicates that you are walking with the Lord. If you are NOT sure and confident that if you would die today you would go to Heaven, it means you need to get right with God. If you never said- YES- to Jesus, do it today! If you have fallen away from the Lord, come back to Him today.
We will close with prayers: Father, we believe that Jesus is coming again. We believe we need to be ready. And Lord I am praying about any person who is reading my message and if they dont have confidence that they are ready for Your return, help them to come to You today and get right with You now. Amen.
First, recognise brother, that you are sinner. Be sorry for your sin. And ask God to forgive you right now. The way as we do that TROUGH PRAYER. That’s how we communicate with God.I’d like to lead you in prayer. If you want Christ to forgive your sins. If you want to know that when you will die you will go to Heaven then pray this prayer with me right now:
God, I know I am a sinner. And I am sorry for what I have done. And I turn from my sin now and ask You to forgive me. Thank You that Your Son Jesus Christ died on the cross and shed His blood for me. Be my Savior and my Lord. And be my friend. I want to follow You from this day forward. Fill me with Your Spirit. And help me to be Your disciple. Thank You for accepting me. Thank You for forgiving me. Thank You that I am now YOURS. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
If you sincerely asked God to forgive you then WELCOME to the family of God. Now you are adopted by God. Now you bacame His son and His inheritance. His angels have written your name in the Book of Life. And you have the BRIGHT FUTURE.
God Jesus said:
“I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word
and believes him
who sent mehas eternal life and will not be condemned;
he has crossed over from death to life.John 5:24
Walk with God and live eternally Arab nation! Amen.
Rev. 4:8 “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.”
Brothers, God Jesus is COMING BACK to us to the earth. Be prepared to LIVE with Him and not to die without Him! Repent and make your ways straight. To make your ways straight, then, please the Lord in all you do by BELIEVING in His Son Jesus Christ.
Turn away from a life of sin to a life of righteousness (Rom. 12:21).
This is the way of peace (Luke 1:79).
It is also the way to prosperity, blessings, answered prayer, joy and every good thing (Prov. 13:21; 1 John 3:22; Heb. 13:21).
If you prayed this simple prayer aboveor if you need more information orstill have questions about who Jesus is or if you want to believe in God Jesus then please email me and contact me (contacts are below) because we should be together. God called us as believers in Him or CHURCH.

well, all except one.
Islam is the only religion where you are basicly garenteed to goto hell.
Muslims dont get a free ticket to heavan.
and even the ones that do goto heavan, will get dipped in the fire before you goto heavan, just to be more gratfull to Allah.
justice dictates that a person will have to pay for his or her crimes, and get rewarded for his or her good deeds.
and islam is the only religion that dose this.

Bahira I hope to reply to your post in details shortly Insha Allah.

Isa is going to put His foot in Jerusalem to JUDGE all of us! Be ready and escape His Judgment!
Re: Genealogy/origin of Jesus (for Ibrahim Rasheed)
Concerning what you wrote about who is not a Christian.– Salam, I want to tell you one important thing. It does not matter who you were BEFORE Jew or Pakistani lady, if you TURN to God then YOU BELIEVE in this God! So, our CHRISTIAN God is Jesus! That’s why we believe in this ONE Creator of the universe! If your past beliefs did not teach you about Him, then TURN your heart to Him and START complying your life with HIS statements! You should NOT change God to be ‘your own god’ created by you! But you yourself SHOULD be TRANSFORMED and CHANGED by His Truth. That’s why if you do not agree with His statements that He is God, then you SHOULD agree with them, if you do NOT want to perish! So, we should not create our own God, but COMPLY with His TRUTH revealed to us about Himin His Holy Scripture! We should SUBMIT and COMMIT our hearts to Him because He –Jesus –is the TRUTH, the LIFE and the ONLY Way to God the Father!
There are Christians who believe that one does not have to accept the Trinity doctrine in order to be truly Christian.- We even could not use this word Trinity! But we SHOULD accept and believe to the words of God said about Him. In many Scriptures we clearly see that Jesus/’Isa is God! If you do NOT accept that He is God, you do not accept God! It is so easy.
So, condemning those who believe Jesus is the Son of God, but that Son of God does not = God the Son, is not what God has called us to do.– He called us to proclaim the TRUTH. During the Judgment Day it will be too late to start believing in Him! The Day of Salvation is today, no matter if you like it or not! Again, the Scripture said you are CONDEMNED by God already now if you do NOT believe that Isa is God! (John 3:16-21). I do not condemn you but God did it! Read about it in the verse mentioned by me above. You know the Truth and you have a chance to be born by God or not (it is YOUR choice) but my Muslim brothers did not have it yet, that’s why we proclaim this Judgement of God already now to be reconciled with God before His Judgement.
Those who believe Jesus is the Son of God and that does not mean God the Son is in no way denying that Jesus is the Messiah, the Christ, the Anointed One.– We all –Christians- believe that Jesus is God, the Creator of the universe, the Messiah, The Son of God and the King of Jews and Arabs. Who do not believe that He is God will be judged by God during the Judgment Day (re: read last two chapters of the Bible.).
Revelation 21 (New King James Version)
All Things Made New
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
The New Jerusalem
9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. 12 Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 13 three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.
The Glory of the New Jerusalem
22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. 27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
The River of Life
1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5 There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.
The Time Is Near
6 Then he said to me, “These words are faithful and true.” And the Lord God of the holy prophets sent His angel to show His servants the things which must shortly take place.
Jesus Testifies to the Churches
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.”
18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
I Am Coming Quickly
20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”

As salam alaykom!
Brothers, we Christians are called by God the CHURCH or global Community or Fellowship of believers in Isa Allah and here on this earth we are worshiping God by our lives and hearts.
I invite you to join us in our Worship to God!
Christian praise and worship music is a great tool for helping us feel closer to God.
Christian Worship – It’s all about the position of our hearts.
Christian worship is clearly of interest to God. He knows we have an inner need to worship, so He asks us to worship Him. The Bible makes it plain that there is only one God worthy of our worship:
“Fear the LORD your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name. Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you for the LORD your God, who is among you, is a jealous God and his anger will burn against you, and he will destroy you from the face of the land.”
Do you love God? Are you thankful for what He has done for you through His Son Jesus Christ?
Then WORSHIP Him with us! Express your gratitude for His Salvation and Forgiveness of all our sins though songs and cries of your heart in songs! God is Omniscient and He knows all your prayers and words even before you will utter them. So, let your Father listen to YOUR Gratitude and LOVE expressed in your righteous and holy life, your love to Arabs and Muslims and God!
“Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.”
One day, we all will worship God in the Kingdom of Heaven but TODAY let’s bring the Kingdom of Heaven to our Arabic countries and let’s PROCLAIM His Freedom in our lives and countries and families! Let’s worship God ETERNALLY in HIS Kingdom on earth and in a new world created by God for us!
God is worthy to be worshiped for what He IS!
HE is Allahu Muhibba!
He is Our salvation and Future!
Our loving Father and Ruh Al Qudus and Ibn Allah!

Support for Others’ Prayers
Father in Heaven,
I’ve already offered a prayer of thanksgiving unto you tonight, but I want to pause here just briefly to let everyone on here know that I always add my voice to theirs/yours in prayer. Whatever you’re asking the Lord for, I add my prayers, so that where two or more are gathered in His name, God will grant your request.
I know there are others who are doing what I do, and it’s uplifting to know we can have prayer partners here who are agreeing with us in our prayers, for our needs are great.
Lord, answer the needs and requests of Your people, I pray in all humility. So many are hurting, Lord. There is longing and struggle here, but also courage and hope – increase that hope in You, Lord, and give us more courage to stay the course with You by our side. See the needs of all who come here in sincerity and solemnity and answer their needs and righteous desires.
Now, I ask a special blessing on each person on this website that this night will be a night of peaceful slumber, freedom from the worries of the day, and growing trust in You, O Lord. Let us all have angels around us, protection from the elements, and freedom from the stresses of the day, arising on the morrow with renewed and refreshed spirits, I pray.
We bless You, Lord God, and thank You, and we ask Your continued care for us.
Bless my brothers and sisters here, dear Lord, I pray.
In Jesus Christ,
The Evening Falls
Lord, and You have gotten me almost to the end of another day! Hallelujah! Praise and glory be unto You for preserving me in this world yet one more time.
I thank You, O my Lord God, for being there to help me through the struggles of each day, to overcome the distractions of the day and all the challenges and trials which come up. I know I could never make it without You.
The peace of the beautiful sunset today after a wonderful day of sunshine and warmer temperatures lifted my spirit, and after so much severe cold, I cannot tell you, dearest Savior, how much that has lifted me up this day! Thank you so much Lord; thank you!
I can feel the presence of angels surrounding me and it brings such peace to my soul, for despite the battles of the day, I know You are near. Thank You, Father, for always being there to pick me up when I fall. Thank You, dear Savior, for always being there to listen to my prayers and for filling my heart with Your great love. Thank You, Holy Spirit, for the inspiration, discernment, and support You give along the way.
One day closer to being with You, to going Home, great joy at that precious thought! Thank You for teaching me how to love unconditionally like You. Thank You, for being the true God of Love – it’s why I’m drawn Homeward, to be where the Love is!
Thank You again, for being with me one more day on my Homeward journey! Glory to God! Praise the Lord! Worthy is the Lamb!
In the name of Jesus, the Christ ….
Prayer of Gratitude
I come before You in humility today to offer thanks, my deep gratitude, for each and every blessing You’ve bestowed upon me and mine (all those I claim, both family and friends). I’m so thankful for all the blessings, seen and unseen, plainly evident and workings behind the scene.
Thank You, thank You, thank You, O Lord of Hosts, Ruler of the universe, Maker of heaven and earth!
I love You and appreciate You so deeply, Lord, my precious Savior and Friend! I offer up waves of glory and a heart full of gratitude unto You, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!
In the precious name and by the atoning blood of Christ,
Amen, amen, and amen.
