|You want to know the will of God, you must look for it! And the best and primary place to begin is right in the pages of Scripture- Bible. God has His written instructions. He speaks to us through His words. And that’s why if you want to know the will of God, you need to spend time every day in it. Every day you need to read the Bible. The will of God can sometimes seam illusive. But is might be a lot more clear than you might think. Does God still speak to people today? Can I know the will of God? Have God an Master Plan for my life as individual? How can I discover what that is? These are important questions. And as the matter of fact, God does still speak to us today! We are not victims of chance. God is leading people of God in Scripture to salvation and He is willing to lead us as well. In Bible we can discover the Plan of god for our lives. God is concerned to keep us in His will. But often we don’t like the will of God for our lives that’s for we act as we don’t hear Him at all. We want that God would change His course and we don’t want to adapt our plans to His Plans. But God’s will is always better in the long run than our is. I underline: long run. God is always looking for your spiritual and eternal welfare. We tend for physical and immediate welfare but what is good now, may be not best for eternity! In other words, we tend to look at things in small picture way. God looks at the big picture. We are looking at the physical; God is looking at the spiritual things. He is looking a long term purpose that He has in mind for our lives: to save us, bless us and abide with us! May be there are some things that are not going make sense. There are some questions which are going not necessarily to be answered. If you want to know the will of god, you must look for it! Look for God, and He will find you! The Bible is Revelation that measures all so called revelation by. The Bible is the bedrock we should measure all other truth by. The Bible is the rock of stability we measure our human emotions by. The bible is the ONE Book we can trust! The one Book that dares to predict the future NOT a few times but hundreds of times. The Book that tells you about to how to know God. That’s why if you want to know the will of God, you need to spend time every day in it. Every day of your life you need to read the Bible. God will apply His words by the holy Spirit in our lives and in the areas we need to know it. It is JUST GOD’s WAY to prepare us to be fully equipped to LIFE with Him on the earth and in Heaven. NOTHING is insignificant that we might NOT pray about! It is better to ask 10 times than to get to the wrong road ones! Pray God and wait for the will of God. God has His PERFECT will and time to do what He wants to do. Consider this: if God says NO or even says: SLOW DOWN, it is for your own good. If the request is wrong, God says – NO. If the timing is wrong, God says: SLOW. If you are wrong, God says: GROW. But if the request is RIGHT, and the timing is RIGHT and you are RIGHT, God says: GO!
Brothers, let’s read words of God today and meditate on them. We cannt comprehend for ourselves how God really DOES LOVE us BUT we can feel and see His heart toward us in His Holy and God-breathed Scripture! Let’s read the Holy Scripture first in Arabic, then in English and I will comment it in blue font below:
Isaiah 29 (New King James Version)
Woe to Jerusalem
1 Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt!
Add year to year;
Let feasts come around.
2 Yet I will distress Ariel;
There shall be heaviness and sorrow,
And it shall be to Me as Ariel.
3 I will encamp against you all around,
I will lay siege against you with a mound,
And I will raise siegeworks against you.
4 You shall be brought down,
You shall speak out of the ground;
Your speech shall be low, out of the dust;
Your voice shall be like a medium’s, out of the ground;
And your speech shall whisper out of the dust.
5 Moreover the multitude of your foes
Shall be like fine dust,
And the multitude of the terrible ones
Like chaff that passes away;
Yes, it shall be in an instant, suddenly.
6 You will be punished by the LORD of hosts
With thunder and earthquake and great noise,
With storm and tempest
And the flame of devouring fire.
7 The multitude of all the nations who fight against Ariel,
Even all who fight against her and her fortress,
And distress her,
Shall be as a dream of a night vision.
8 It shall even be as when a hungry man dreams,
And look-he eats;
But he awakes, and his soul is still empty;
Or as when a thirsty man dreams,
And look-he drinks;
But he awakes, and indeed he is faint,
And his soul still craves:
So the multitude of all the nations shall be,
Who fight against Mount Zion.
-Brothers, as we know with you there should be the war in Israel soon. And God will save His people. Many nations will be among enemies of Israel that day (according to the prophecies Iran will be one of them…) And God Jesus will visit us. He will live with us on the earth for 1,000 years and His saved people (Arabs also) will reign with God Jesus on the earth.
The Blindness of Disobedience
9 Pause and wonder!
Blind yourselves and be blind!
They are drunk, but not with wine;
They stagger, but not with intoxicating drink.
10 For the LORD has poured out on you
The spirit of deep sleep,
And has closed your eyes, namely, the prophets;
And He has covered your heads, namely, the seers.
11 The whole vision has become to you like the words of a book that is sealed, which men
And he says, deliver to one who is literate, saying, Read this, please. I cannot, for it is sealed.
12 Then the book is delivered to one who is illiterate, saying, Read this, please.
And he says, I am not literate.
13 Therefore the Lord said:
Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths
And honor Me with their lips,
But have removed their hearts far from Me,
And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men,
14 Therefore, behold, I will again do a marvelous work
Among this people,
A marvelous work and a wonder;
For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish,
And the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden.
15 Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the LORD,
And their works are in the dark;
They say, Who sees us? and, Who knows us?
16 Surely you have things turned around!
Shall the potter be esteemed as the clay;
For shall the thing made say of him who made it,
He did not make me?
Or shall the thing formed say of him who formed it,
He has no understanding?
– Brothers, God said that many people are reading Bible and are not saved by God. Because their hearts are FAR from God. Some of them honor God wil their lips. But they have removed their hearts FAR form God. They prefer to read and study Qur’an but they refuse to be SAVED by ONE God who trully EXISTS and created us- He is GOD of our father Ibrahim/Abraham- who is GIVING you SALVATION and FORGIVENESS FREE. Just accept Him deeply in your heart and worship Him by your life and heart! Belive in His Son who died to justify you and GOD will protect you as His chosen nation…chosen people to whom He revealed Himself!
Future Recovery of Wisdom
17 Is it not yet a very little while
Till Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field,
And the fruitful field be esteemed as a forest?
18 In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book,
And the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness.
19 The humble also shall increase their joy in the LORD,
And the poor among men shall rejoice
In the Holy One of Israel.
-Brothers, when you will turn your heart to God of Ibrahim and His Son,-Jesus Christ- He will FORGIVE and FORGET all your sins. And you will be like Lebanon and cedars trees- STRONG in your God, powerful received the power of God to change your world. You will be like a fruitful field and God will Dwell AMONG your sons and your nation. You will greatly rejoice in the LORD! Because God Jesus is your SALVATION! He is your FUTURE! He is your LIFE! He is your DESTINY you yourself chose for you and your children. Way of God – Jesus -will be LIKE highway in the desert of your life, LEADING you to the Kingdom of Heaven and God! This highway- Jesus- will lead you from Egypt to the dwelling place of Heavenly Father! This WAY is the ONLY WAY chosen by God to BRING you to Him. And the name of this WAY is God Jesus!
20 For the terrible one is brought to nothing,
The scornful one is consumed,
And all who watch for iniquity are cut off
21 Who make a man an offender by a word,
And lay a snare for him who reproves in the gate,
And turn aside the just by empty words.
22 Therefore thus says the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob:
Jacob shall not now be ashamed,
Nor shall his face now grow pale;
23 But when he sees his children,
The work of My hands, in his midst,
They will hallow My name,
And hallow the Holy One of Jacob,
And fear the God of Israel.
24 These also who erred in spirit will come to understanding,
And those who complained will learn doctrine.
– Brothers, Arabs, God is saying here about you! You will find God of SALVATION and you will receive salvation from His hands pierced on the cross. He was killed. Not you! God was tortured. Not you! God cried and looked salvation for you and your family. NOT you. You turned your face to idols of Islam. You prayed idol whom you called God, but He does NOT exist. He does NOT love you! He did NOT die for you to justify you! He did NOT suffer instead of you! He did NOT accept all your sins and punishment! He is NOT JUSTICE! He promissing to send you to hell BUT he did NOT do anything to SAVE you, my Arab nation! WHY? Because he does NOT exist. He is like golden cow or idols of wood which are JUST imagination of evil spirits/jinns who gave revelation to our brother Muhammad. Turn from your idols to LIVE or you will die with Islam. Millions of Muslims are in hell because you chose the wrong way…leading NOT to ONE God. ONE God..the only ONE who LOVED you and died to justify you! He is IS CALLING you now through His Holy Spirit to salvation THROUGH FAITH in God Jesus!
Futile Confidence in Egypt
1 Woe to the rebellious children,- says the LORD,
Who take counsel, but not of Me,
And who devise plans, but not of My Spirit,
That they may add sin to sin;
2 Who walk to go down to Egypt,
And have not asked My advice,
To strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh,
And to trust in the shadow of Egypt!
3 Therefore the strength of Pharaoh
Shall be your shame,
And trust in the shadow of Egypt
Shall be your humiliation.
4 For his princes were at Zoan,
And his ambassadors came to Hanes.
5 They were all ashamed of a people who could not benefit them,
Or be help or benefit,
But a shame and also a reproach.
6 The burden against the beasts of the South.
Through a land of trouble and anguish,
From which came the lioness and lion,
The viper and fiery flying serpent,
They will carry their riches on the backs of young donkeys,
And their treasures on the humps of camels,
To a people who shall not profit;
7 For the Egyptians shall help in vain and to no purpose.
Therefore I have called her
A Rebellious People
8 Now go, write it before them on a tablet,
And note it on a scroll,
That it may be for time to come,
Forever and ever:
9 That this is a rebellious people,
Children who will not hear the law of the LORD;
10 Who say to the seers, Do not see,
And to the prophets, Do not prophesy to us right things;
Speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits.
11 Get out of the way,
Turn aside from the path,
Cause the Holy One of Israel
To cease from before us.
12 Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel:
Because you despise this word,
And trust in oppression and perversity,
And rely on them,
13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you
Like a breach ready to fall,
A bulge in a high wall,
Whose breaking comes suddenly, in an instant.
14 And He shall break it like the breaking of the potter’s vessel,
Which is broken in pieces;
He shall not spare.
So there shall not be found among its fragments
A shard to take fire from the hearth,
Or to take water from the cistern.
15 For thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel:
In returning and rest you shall be saved;
In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.
But you would not,
16 And you said, -No, for we will flee on horses
Therefore you shall flee!
And, We will ride on swift horses
Therefore those who pursue you shall be swift!
17 One thousand shall flee at the threat of one,
At the threat of five you shall flee,
Till you are left as a pole on top of a mountain
And as a banner on a hill.
– Brothers, dont be rebelious people who are against the Lord. Repent and believe in Him. Jesus will be your salvation and He will comfort you.
God Will Be Gracious
18 Therefore the LORD will wait, that He may be gracious to you;
And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you.
For the LORD is a God of justice;
Blessed are all those who wait for Him.
-Brothers, God is waiting for YOU! Come to Him and He will save you! Come to Him in repentance and He will forget your sins.
19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem;
You shall weep no more.
He will be very gracious to you at the sound of your cry;
When He hears it, He will answer you.
20 And though the Lord gives you
The bread of adversity and the water of affliction,
Yet your teachers will not be moved into a corner anymore,
But your eyes shall see your teachers.
21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying,
This is the way, walk in it,
Whenever you turn to the right hand
Or whenever you turn to the left.
22 You will also defile the covering of your images of silver,
And the ornament of your molded images of gold.
You will throw them away as an unclean thing;
You will say to them, Get away!
23 Then He will give the rain for your seed
With which you sow the ground,
And bread of the increase of the earth;
It will be fat and plentiful.
In that day your cattle will feed
In large pastures.
-Brothers, turn to God and leave your idols, leave Islam, Buddism and other false teachings because God considers it as ABOMINATION and SIN and IDOL WORSHIPING. All who worship gods which dont exist will DIE. Because punishment for sin is DEATH. But salvation from sins is GOD Jesus and FAITH in Him.
24 Likewise the oxen and the young donkeys that work the ground
Will eat cured fodder,
Which has been winnowed with the shovel and fan.
25 There will be on every high mountain
And on every high hill
Rivers and streams of waters,
In the day of the great slaughter,
When the towers fall.
26 Moreover the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun,
And the light of the sun will be sevenfold,
As the light of seven days,
In the day that the LORD binds up the bruise of His people
And heals the stroke of their wound.
Judgment on Assyria
27 Behold, the name of the LORD comes from afar,
Burning with His anger,
And His burden is heavy;
His lips are full of indignation,
And His tongue like a devouring fire.
28 His breath is like an overflowing stream,
Which reaches up to the neck,
To sift the nations with the sieve of futility;
And there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people,
Causing them to err.
29 You shall have a song
As in the night when a holy festival is kept,
And gladness of heart as when one goes with a flute,
To come into the mountain of the LORD,
To the Mighty One of Israel.
30 The LORD will cause His glorious voice to be heard,
And show the descent of His arm,
With the indignation of His anger
And the flame of a devouring fire,
With scattering, tempest, and hailstones.
31 For through the voice of the LORD
Assyria will be beaten down,
As He strikes with the rod.
32 And in every place where the staff of punishment passes,
Which the LORD lays on him,
It will be with tambourines and harps;
And in battles of brandishing He will fight with it.
33 For Tophet was established of old,
Yes, for the king it is prepared.
He has made it deep and large;
Its pyre is fire with much wood;
The breath of the LORD, like a stream of brimstone,
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.
Walk with God and live eternally Arab nation! Amen.
- The chains begin to break when we are willing to BELIEVE we are who God says we are! Father, God, Jesus the Christ, your word declares that we, your people, are your witnesses and your servants whom you have chosen before hand, that we may know and believe you and understand that you are God, Father, Jesus Christ. Before you no God was formed, nor will there be one after you! You are the alpha and omega, the beginning and the end. (Isa.43:10). You have chosen me, Jesus, for the express purpose of knowing and BELIEVING you! But I and no one else can really begin to know you until we’ve chosen to Believe, and TRUST you! So forgive the unbelief, and help them…so many souls are dying for lack of knowledge. According to your word, it is possible to be broken off from part of your plan, because of lack of belief and trust! Your word tells us not to be arrogant but to be afraid should we chose to ignore you! (Rom. 11:20). I personally do not want to miss any part of your plan, be it good or not so good because of lack of faith, trust, and unbelief! Help me always to walk by faith and not by sight. Help those who struggle in this area of their life here on CC. God wishes none would perish…He loves us, and I love you my sisters and brothers! Read your bibles, even if its just a little each day. God will surely speak volumes to YOU right where you are! We will always be learning and growing but that too is up to us! We serve a God who is a gentlemen, he does not push or pull. He has given us all a free will. Be encouraged God is not so easy to give up on his own…you may go in circles, but when you finally trust him, and let him have the control life will become like brand new! I Know! In Jesus name I pray, Amen
Dear Lord God Almighty We know that You are Jesus, and that You died for us. Give us Your Holy Spirit, to live in us forever, and thus bless us with Eternal Life. Let Your Holy Spirit testify through us and speak the Truth through us. Let Your Holy Spirit Love through us – a perfect unselfish Holy Love; so that we lay down all worldly ambitions, give up our wills, and do Your Holy Will. Take our thoughts away from making money, or finding business opportunities. Take our desire away from seeking worldly wealth or fame. Take our eyes away from looking on vain worldly appearances, which deceive and mislead us. Keep our thoughts on doing Your Holy will, not on seeking worldly material things, or vain worldly status.
Let Your Holy Spirit give us our ONE desire and ONE purpose: to do Your Holy Will. If You desire us to walk paths of poverty, then so be it. If You desire us to lose everything that we think is important or valuable, then so be it. If You Desire us to sacrifice everything we have and our lives, then so be it. If You desire us to endure pain and seasons of harsh conditions, then so be it. If You desire us to live or die, then so be it. Let Your Holy Will be done in our lives. For, even our lives are not our own. We owe everything to You.
Keep us from looking in the mirror and admiring our own beauty, which is not beauty at all. Let the True Beauty be in us – Your Holy Spirit of Truth and Grace. Keep us from pride and love of self, which is our enemy. Bless us with absolute, total, unselfish Love. Which is only possible through Your Holy Spirit. We give You our lives. Do with us as You Will. Make our lives useful to Your Service. The only ambition we have is to humbly, and honestly do Your Will. We want to lift up Your Name Jesus, not our names. We want to make known the power of Your Holy Spirit, Jesus. We want You to claim us for Yourself, and use us according to Your Divine purpose. And no matter the job or task that You assign to us, we will be contented, and full of Joy, to do Your Holy Will, Jesus.
Let Your Holy Spirit, Jesus, live in us forever, and give us purpose, hope, and peace and joy, and Eternal Life. For without You, we perish. In Your Holy Spirit, Jesus, we Pray! Amen.
Do I glorify You, Lord, in everything I say?
Do I show others Your love in all that I do?
When others see me do they also see You?
Are my motives pure– I know that You see?
Would I want other Christians to be just like me?
You understand my thoughts– You’re the only One Who can.
When I’m all by myself am I a God pleasing man?
I don’t mean am I perfect, for without Christ I know I’m not,
But am I doing doubtful things hoping that I won’t be caught?
Are there any hidden issues in the depths of my heart
That, as a born again Christian, I should bid to depart?
If there’s any thought or action that’s bringing You shame,
Help me to surrender it in Jesus’ blessed Name.
I don’t want to continue anything that displeases You,
And I want to do everything that You would have me do.
Dear God, in Your wisdom, You know how to keep me straight,
If You ever see me straying correct me before it’s too late.
By Your grace You have saved me and forgiven all my sin,
I love You, I thank You, and I praise You. Amen.
Oh Lord my God, you are very great; and we are blessed by your mercy, and your grace. So rain in us father your healing rain, and with our whole heart we will give you all the praise. We thank you Lord God, that you made a way for us to come boldy before you Lord, father when we pray. Lord I’m asking in the sweet name Jesus, that you touch hearts, renew minds, and heal the body Lord you know our needs father. so rain down your blessing Lord God, touch each persons need give them the strength they can only find in you Lord , God you said ask and ye shall recieve in prayer believing. Let us thank you father for what you are about to do for us, and never let us forget all you have already done. In the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Chris.t Amen.

Dear Jesus, help us to spread Your fragrance everywhere we go. Flood our souls with Your Spirit and Life. Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly that our lives may only be a radiance of Yours. Shine through us and be so in us that every soul we come in contact with may feel Your presence in our souls.
Let them look up, and see no longer us, but only Jesus!
Stay with us and then we shall begin to shine as You shine, so to shine as to be a light to others.
The light, O Jesus, will be all from You; none of it will be ours. It will be You, shining on others through us.
Let us thus praise You in the way You love best, by shining on those around us.
Let us preach You without preaching, not by words but by example, by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what we do, the evident fullness of the love our hearts bear for You. Amen.

Do christians read Bible in toilet?
by bahira – Sat Nov 28, 2009 7:43 am
I have a simple comment to you and all non muslims, our holy Book QURAN never be touched until the readers of muslims to be cleaned , purified and should be read in a clean place.
But you know and all non-muslims , christians and religious people of yours read your books even in the bathroom or in the W.C , this is a talk of a recently converted christian to islam ..you read your book in such dirty place like bathrooms or W.Cs to kill the time as she said.
Is this respect and believe to your book or respect to your God …..a great difference .
Dear my brother Gamal salam!
Let�s consider what does word Allah mean?- God is Arabic. You are asking where is it written that Jesus of Issa Al Massih Allah? It is written in Bible. And even in Qur’an.
Who is Allah for us Christians?
1. Holy Spirit.- And Jesus was called Ruh Allah in Qur’an.
2. Word of God.- And Qur’an states that Jesus is Word of God.
3. Creator- and Qur’an says that Jesus created bird.
4. Savior- who should save us from our sins. And OLD Testament consists more then 300 prophecies about Jesus even what He should be crucified and His hands should be pierced. If you remember we studied these prophecies with you before. But for your reference I will give you link to this message again:
Before we go through this issue , I asked you previously to tell us from where or where was written such words or name (ISSAH ALLAH), is it in your holy books , in christians or Jews minds…where? …
Look brother Gamal that here it is written that Jesus is God or Jesus is Allah or Jesus is Issa Allah in Arabic:
Jesus claimed to be God:
14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am . This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’
58″I tell you the truth,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!” 59At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds.
6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”
9 Jesus answered: “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’? 10Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me?
30 I and the Father are one.”
5 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
(James 1:21, 2 Tim 3:15)
So, should you study Bible? Yes and Muhammed said it!!!
In Qur’an Allah is master. Our relationships with Him is that of a servant to a muster. But God in christianity says that we who believe in Him are adopted by Him:
15 For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs-heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
1 John 3:1
1 How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 3 Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure.
On the other hand , about the non-muslims(christians or Jews), how some of them or all are reading their Gospels and holy books? – We are reading and studying Bible every day of our life. We are clean because Jesus cleansed us by His blood of all our sins and iniquities. If God made us clean what can make us dirty?
It’s noticed that, in the European countries and other places of the world, many of non muslims are reading their holy books in the w.cs or bathrooms to kill the time as one of a recently converted christian woman into islam speech..she is from U.S.A , she is wondering why? -Brothers there are Millions of Muslims who don’t read Qur’an at all. What is the difference to have this book at home? The same way millions of so-called Christians don’t follow teaching of Jesus then what is the reason for them to read this Bible with respect to its content? Content of Bible is Word of God- Jesus but they refuse to believe in Him. So, no matter where and in which place person will read Bible. If the reason is REALLY to find God Jesus then this Book will become the HOLY one for this person. Ask me this question: if I should live in Kuwait what I would like to take with me? – ONLY holy BIBLE!
Muslims are respecting their Quran and should clean and purify themselves before reading, but the christians do not care how and where to read their holy book regardless their bodies or place are purified and clean or not,I wonder.– Brother I would highly repect you if you would keep and read with respect our holy Bible.
More over the muslims should wash and purify themselves after W.Cs , wash their hands and clean themselves with water even in the very poor areas but others than muslims no even in the advanced places ?
This is the difference between teaches of Islam and others…..from where such great teaches and others. – Keep Bible and respect Jesus that is what God wants. Find Jesus in Bible and you will respect NOT only holy book BUT God Himself. By the way brother in my forum I will publish this message now. I want that Muslims would read our conversation with you.
For your knowledge to compare between a muslim child how? to memorize Quran and non muslim child ,you will find how Quran is easily to memorize since childhood . I am sure no other books are kept easily in the memories , minds and hearts more than QURAN since early childhood till death.– Brother, God will put His words into your heart. You needn’t memorize them. God will teach you eternally Truth which is NOT in letters but in His Spirit.
God bless you Gamal and you all brothers Arabs!

God said, to the pure all things are pure. Jesus has already cleansed us from all sin, so to us there is no sin or uncleanness. Jesus cleansed us by his holy Blood and we have no sin. Cleansing, spiritually, has nothing to do with our human bodies. if we come in from work in the garden and are ‘dusty’ (dirty) , that matters not to God. He is looking at our hearts/soul.
It makes no difference where we read the Holy Word. It is good to read it all the time, anywhere we can. It is good to read it in any room of the house. It cannot be defiled with such actions, for it is sanctified and is holy. The Word is God, so we cannot defile it.
Our lives have been sanctified by the Holy Ghost, so we cannot be defiled with earthly dirt.
