GOD is LOVE

Is Christian God violent? If He is God of Love then why many people will be in hell and Muslims too? Where is LOVE of this God to Muslims?

1. Brothers, let’s recall who is God.

God in Bible created us….man and woman. We were created in God’s image and it means we are not animals. We consist of body, soul and spirit the same way as God is ONE but He is the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ – Son of God and God Father.

2. He said to Adam and Eve what they should do in Eden but they didn’t obey Him and sinned. Sin was disobedience. We are with you in the same position before God when we are sinning. If we  are sinners it means that there is a tremendous separation between us sinners and Holy God. We just cannot come closer to Him. It is impossible for us to stay in His presence and be alive until we will not be changed. But how to be changed? Changed by God means to be Forgiven by Him!

3. God is Law Maker. He said what we should follow but we do what we want. It means God is exempt from all human laws. God is neither subject to even the laws of Physics, nor Time itself.

He is Omnipotent. He is giving us a ‘law’ “how to cross the street” but it is our responsibility how we will do it…reasonable or crazy….and the result of such acts will be or our Death or we will  be ALIVE…

4. Can the Creator of a glass vase break it? Yes. If the vase was used wrong. Does God kill human beings? Death is a state when we change our form. After our death we spiritual beings will be Judged by God. And we will be separated from God if we will be sinners and not justified and forgiven by God. Separation means DEATH in place which will separate us from God (it is called hell).

5. If God is evil then why then Cain in the Old Testament wanted to kill his brother but God told him that he should rule over sin. God tried to STOP him. If God would not be LOVE He would not intervene!

Genesis 4

6 So the LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? 7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”

It means that God is not evil but He gave us choice to listen to Him and obey Him or NOT. It is our choice and we are accountable for everything what we do.

6. We ought to make a distinction between different kinds of killing. On one level, if you want to count anybody who died as a result of God’s action, then that’s everyone who ever lived.

What I think is perhaps worthwhile in looking to this list in details, who among these people were killed for what purpose? I would suggest these categories:

A) Killed as a result of their aggression against the nation of Israel. God chose people and He protected them as He is protecting us Christians today. He cares about us and is saving us in any circumstances.

B) Killed as a result of enmity between them and Israel, but not specifically the violent aggression of the victim in particular.

C) Killed as a result of their sin that made God angry. We all will die if we will continue sinning and will not repent in sins and turn from sins to God.

D) Killed as a result of somebody else’s sin. All people were killed during  the Global  flood. Noah and his family were saved. Why did all people die? Because they sinned. They committed adulteries and lived sexual immoral life styles. Their sins were terrible but  they were not created to live that way.

Why did Jews entered the Promised land?

  1. God said it (Deuteronomy 1:8) ‘See, I have set the land before you; go in and possess the land which the LORD swore to your fathers—to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—to give to them and their descendants after them.’
  2. People should be gathered and separated from other religions and influence of other gods.

  3. The Promised Land is symbol of Kingdom of Heaven. God will lead us to His Kingdom and will protect us and free us from enemies. Note: not from Arabs but  from evil influence of evil spirits and satan and from sins. The same way as Jews were freed from slavery in Egypt, Arabs nowadays have been set free by the POWER of God from slavery of their sins. And this freedom God gives us through FAITH in Jesus Christ Son of God.
  4. Why did Jews spend 40 years after freedom from Egypt in desert? To be changed. Transformed by God. To live with God and depend on God. Don’t forget that God brought them food and water in desert. (Deuteronomy1:30-32) The LORD your God, who goes before you, He will fight for you, according to all He did for you in Egypt before your eyes, 31 and in the wilderness where you saw how the LORD your God carried you, as a man carries his son, in all the way that you went until you came to this place.’ 32 Yet, for all that, you did not believe the LORD your God, 33 who went in the way before you to search out a place for you to pitch your tents, to show you the way you should go, in the fire by night and in the cloud by day. Is it not the Love of God to purify His nation? We have been purified by God the same way in the desert of our life. If we depend on God and obey Him He will provide us with everything what we will need to survive and enter the Promised Land “Kingdom of Heaven”. But only generation which was born in desert during these 40 years was able to enter to the Promised land. It is symbol for us today. We will enter the Kingdom of Heaven if we will be ‘BORN AGAIN’ or ‘BORN from ABOVE’ as Jesus said about it. Why other nations where killed during the entrance into the Promised land? It was not because the Jews were good nation!! No. They were many times disobedient to God. But PEOPLE WERE KILLED because of the wickedness of the nations! (Deuteronomy 9:4-6) 4 “Do not think in your heart, after the LORD your God has cast them out before you, saying, ‘Because of my righteousness the LORD has brought me in to possess this land’; but it is because of the wickedness of these nations that the LORD is driving them out from before you and that He may fulfill the word which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. 6 Therefore understand that the LORD your God is not giving you this good land to possess because of your righteousness, for you are a stiff-necked people.

    7 “Remember! Do not forget how you provoked the LORD your God to wrath in the wilderness. From the day that you departed from the land of Egypt until you came to this place, you have been rebellious against the LORD. Not because of your righteousness or the uprightness of your heart Other nations without God of Ibraham were in their sins! And God separated ONE nation from the whole world, living according to other standards and teachings! God wanted that His nation would live accoording to HIS LAWS and RULES! Not to the TEACHINGS of their idols and other gods…You Muslims will die also if YOU WILL not LIVE as righteous people…If you will not be forgiven  of your sins by ONE TRUE GOD. This is symbol which we can see and read in history. It shows us our position if front of God.

God of Ibraham is ONE. He will free Arabs the same way as Jews from sins! From slavery of sins. But how?

God proves His LOVE to us and sacrifieced Himself for us. SON of God  -ISSA Al MASSIH- who IS GOD suffered instead of us and died on cross after terrible sufferings.  God experienced terrible pain by accepting sins of the whole WORLD into His body. BUT He was resurrected because DEATH could not stop God from BEING ETERNAL…IMMORTAL and POWERFUL GOD!

God justified everyone who will believe in HIS SUFFERING and HIS LOVE on cross. Because if we accept HIS SUFFERINGS it means WE ACCEPT HIS ESSENCE- PEACE, LOVE, SELF-SACRIFICE, COMPASSION, MERCY-i.e.it means we accept Him! The best virtues which we all dream to possess He HAS!

He is the ultimate standard for what is just!

God is the ONE who lit the “candles of life” within every person born on this planet. As the Creator, He has rightful authority over that which He creates. Due to the way life was created, God personally allows for the death of every living thing, including us. Like it or not, He who lights the candles gets to blow them out, in any way He sees fit. Murder, car crashes, old age, disease, etc, etc. For example I wrote a song one time that sucked. I threw it in the garbage. Do I not have that right? Can the clay say to the potter, why are you destroying me? I think not. He gave us all the Gift of life, and He WILL NOT take it away! Arabs, here is a GIFT of ETERNAL LIFE offered to YOU my Arab nation: accept and LIVE with God!

But how? THROUGH FAITH in Jesus Christ! Son of God. God. God of infinite LOVE. God of unconditional LOVE to us and Muslims!

Pray this prayer sincerely and be forgiven of your sins right now:

Jesus, my Lord, Issa Al Massih, I know that I am a sinner.

I know now that You are God.

Forgive me that I didn’t believe in You and sinned all my life.

And thank You for diying on the cross for my sin

and paying prize for it and risen again from the dead.

I am turning from my sin now.

And I am making choice to believe in You all my life

and follow You as my Savior and Lord.

Thank You for calling me and forgiving me, and receiving me, and loving me.

Thank you Lord that You adopted me through my Faith into YOU.

Help me to follow You from this day forward.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

If you prayed this prayer then know that God promised if we confess our sins then He is faithful and just to forgive us through faith into Jesus Christ and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. “He that has the Son hats life; and he that has not the Son of God has not life.”

Jesus said to

him, I am the way, the truth, and the life.No one comes to the Father except through Me.1 John 5:12

John 14:6

“Whoever believes

in him( Jesus) is not condemned,

but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” John 3:18

Brothers, enough to live without GOD! He is not in Islam!

Enough to be DEAD! Be resurrected with GOD! Resurrected to the NEW LIFE!

TURN to GOD OF LIFE and LIVE with Him!

There is enough madness in the world and our life. Let’s get out of it!

TO our-OUR KINGDOM where GOD our FATHER is waiting for us!

Raise up Arabs! Rise up from DEATH to eternal LIFE with God JESUS!

He is your salvation! HOLY SPIRIT PLEASE RAISE UP MY ARAB BROTHERS!

BRING THEM FAITH AND SALVATION!

IN the NAME of JESUS. I am praying. Amen.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.   “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.  But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

John 3:16

God loves you Arabs and Muslims!

Deutoronomy 4:7

“For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as the LORD our God is to us, for whatever reason we may call upon Him? 8 And what great nation is there that has such statutes and righteous judgments as are in all this law

which I set before you this day?
