my brother Arabs,
and all who are reading this message
Ahlan and yarhamkom Allah!
Let’s find Allah!!!
Is He in Islam?
He says NO!
My replies will be in red color.
You know … whenever I read what you write about unconditional forgiveness it makes me anxious to know more and more about that;-unconditional love of God is what wins our hearts because there is NO such love in this world. Do you kno why? Because He is not human being! Call Him as alien…or whatever…but He is Supreme Being! The best ONE! The Perfect ONE! The LOVING ONE who is LOVE! His essence or nature is LOVE! He created us like buildings. But this life and sins destroyed us from inside out. But He knows what He is doing! He is restoring our souls, our lives and our hearts! There is no greater love then to give all what you have for the sake of the beloved one. Do you remember this story in Qur’an and there is the same story in Bible how Ibrahim (Abraham) was told by God to give all what he had- his son- for the sake of Allah? He should sacrifice him and kill on the mountain. Ibrahim was confused. But God is God of LOVE and wanted to test our hearts and our faith. Can our faith move mountains or not? Can our faith change hundred of lives of our brothers? Can our faith be the source of living even if we dont have anything in this world? Even our beloved son should be killed. Killed! How to kill small child? But Ibrahim was thinking about the source of living- God Himself- he believed that this voice commanded him to sacrifice child was voice of the most strong and powerful BEING. This voice was of Him who will restore the dead bodies and can create children even out of stones! What is stones? Chemical elements…is it not impossible to compose chemical elements again and create of them whatever you want. Everything is possible to HIM who is perfect ONE! For GOD! So Ibrahim having the strongest faith in his heart put child to kill him. But God stopped him at the last moment. It was the greatest love to God which God saw in the life of person..in the life of Ibrahim. Love was his faith. The same way God is showing us His LOVE but letting His the ONLY ONE Son Jesus Christ to be killed and sacrificed for salvation of Arab nation….all Muslims and all people on the earth! Why? because the greatest love is if you give all what you have to other person…your life…your blood…your organs for their salvation in clinics…That’s why God is showing us that if He is LOVE, He will suffer terrible pain not only because He loves Jews…no! Because He loves you! Personally you! Knowing that we are poor enough and we dont have ability to be clean ourselves from our sins and madness. He takes our hand and pulls us out of madness. His loving hand intervenes in our life to save us. But His loving hand are pierced. Why they pierced these hands being full of love and power? Because they refused to accept HIS LOVE. They refused to accept His power. What was the reason why Son of God suffered such terrible pain? Why He didnt change situation? Because He knew that Perfect LOVE is in suffering…in giving all what you have…if all what He had at that time was His body- He decided to give it. If Love is salvation then how to save without LOVE? Love was perfect in Jesus. Because He is God of LOVE. His love was until the death and after His death. Love will never be stopped. Love is salvation for you. If these people killed Him not accepting Him as King and God then we all now have the same dilemma. Or we will accept His love showed in His life and sufferings for our sake or we are refusing it and dont recognize that He is God. But what does it mean to see God (the only One TRUE God) and not recognize Him. It means that we are left without God. Our sins and blood is on our hands…we are separated from Truth…we are in madness…and self-destruction…we are empty and no reason for our existance left anymore. Such senseless life is all what left. Instead such perfect God in our heart we have one who is nothing…imagination…madness…hatred…because the only ONE source of LOVE was rejected by us! Oh, nothing is left…our soul is in hell right now. What is hell? Hell is separation from God’s love…it is abyss separating our bodies from river in desert. How to get this water if our body and soul are torn to pieces by pain of death? Pain which can be only healed by God’s water! By His Spirit! By His LOVE!
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.
Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem,
coming down out of heaven from God,
prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying,
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.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes;
there shall be no more death,
There shall be no more pain,
for the former things have passed away.
Then He who sat on the throne said,
Behold, I make all things new.
And He said to me,
Write, for these words are true and faithful.
And He said to me,
It is done!
I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the Beginning and the End.
I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.
He who overcomes shall inherit all things,
and I will be his God and he shall be My son. (Revelation 21)
So if God wants that you will be His inheritance, if God desires that Arabs will be His nation living with Him in His Kingdom, then guys, stop everything. It is now the beginning of TRUE Islam. The word Islam is derived from the Arabic root “Salema”: peace, purity, submission and obedience. In the religious sense, Islam means submission to the will of God and obedience to His law. Now, guys time of TRUE Islam, of TRUE Submission t the most Perfect God. Time of Peace with God. Time of submission and obedience to His will! If this God is the TRUE God then submit to Him. If there is more love in this world than in God who suffered terrible pain letting His Son to be killed as sacrifice of reconciliation with us, then please try to find it. Impossible. The perfect BEING, the perfect GOD, the perfect LOVE was shown us here ont he earth! Now it is time to find our home. Home of God. His home is our home. Our homesick will lead us to our destination! Our Father is meeting us right now!
that’s why I keep asking about because I want to make sure I am understanding it correctly.
Please Bahira: I will really appreciate it more if you don’t call me stupid for accepting any belief. I want to chose without feeling pushed.
Now I understand that people who believe in Jesus, and repent from their sins will be forgiven and will go to heavens, even liars won’t go to hell.- all sins will be forgiven to those who will believe in Jesus Christ- Son of God. One more question to remove some confusion. You said: “We are forgiven through faith not good deeds” well … then why repentance? if I will be forgiven anyway, and Faith in Jesus guarantees that I go to heavens … like those who lived before, and Jesus went to them in hell … they had this chance … they believed and went to heavens … they didn’t need to be tested for good or bad deeds any more. –right. We are forgiven trough faith into God. But what is faith then? How to get this faith? Faith is a present from God. Faith is action. But which action? If you committed adultery…stop it. No adultery anymore. It is action. It is faith evident and revealed through action. If there is no action it means there is no faith. Nothing what is alive cannt be without motion. Because active state is a normal state for everything what is alive. Or alive or not. So, if you killed and you dont kill anymore because no reason left to hate Jews whom you killed in countless numbers….is it not repentance? Is it not change of direction to destination? Such change and living in accordance with His the ONLY WAY to His Kingdom will save you from destruction. Because if there is only one way to stay alive for us- in HIS PRESENCE- then let’s find this ONLY ONE ROAD or way called Jesus. So, what are good deeds then? Do we need them? There is only two ways: or you are acting correct or you are wrong. If you are on the correct road then your deeds are correct. If you want to get to Kingdom by doing only good deeds (like in Islam) and if you dont accept salvation of God (ticket) given to you free of charge. it is as if you would like to fly to Saudi Arabia. But you are very poor. You are trying to earn money (good deeds) but you never knows when finally you will get ticket. Or you should forget about ticket at all because we are making more bad deeds than good deeds. If you think that your self-righteousness is enough now to be saved in Islam then you are trying to buy ticket. You are sure that ticket was to the right destination but you arrived to Afghanistan to Osama Bin Laden camp instead to the most LOVING God. But why? Because our destination is His Kingdom and way to this Kingdom only ONE! Name of this flight is Jesus Christ. Or Afghanistan or Kingdom of Heaven. Who knows where will be your final arrival! But our intelligence makes us now to look into our ticket!!!! What is written there? Afghanistan? Sorry, but we are going to get out of Saudi Arabia to the most precious Kingdom of Heaven! Change flight right now! Do I understanding right? I will be forgiven anyway as long as I believe.-yes. Why do I need to repent? –repentance is faith in action or in other words it is living faith. And what If I didn’t repent from some sins while I believe in Jesus; – all sins are forgiven through faith. Your soul will be cleaned like melting metal. Metal will be melted to recover pure gold. You are pure gold. Your life on earth is purification. You will be perfect and prepared to enter the perfect place. Perfect place for perfect people. Perfect place of Pefect God. Perfect place-Kingdom of Heaven- is prepared for prepared people! What will happen to me? I will not be forgiven, or I will not go to heavens?- If you accept and recognize in Jesus the Son of God, the God of LOVE then you are forgiven. You cannt purify yourself! He will purify you like Wuzu. He will melt you into pure god for Him Himself. He will get ticket for you? Dont worry. He possesses everything! Your Father is the most rich. The most rich in heart and love. The most rich to call you His inheritance!!
He who overcomes shall inherit all things,
and I will be his God and he shall be My son
Will Jesus stop loving me after I die or on the day of resurrection because of committing sins without repenting?-when you will die you will say your last words to your FATHER. You will say: Father, accept my soul. I am not perfect. I am poor. But You are perfect. You loved me always even before my birth You knew me..even before the creation of the world. Father accept me. I am going home. To our home, Father. 1000% You will be with HIM eternally in YOUR HOME! Let Him know and melt you in what you should be melted! ….In a appropriate being..a pure gold…He knows how to accept you into His presence!
You said earlier: “True forgiven people will not kill anymore, it means they are not dangerous for society anymore…” but this can’t be applied for all people; you can’t guarantee that all people are following this … –yes only true believers in Jesus are free of sword in their hand. They will not fight in Palestine with weapon. They will not kill children. But if the one of Christians is in-the-name-only Christian then he can loose salvation given to him if he will sin deliberately. But it will be his choice. He will know what he is doing. If he doesn’t submit to the law of God then society will make him to submit to the local laws. It can’t associate a rule to control a secured society counting on this;- there society like Ummahcalled church. It is community of saved Christians. It is fellowship comprising millions Christian all over the world. They are melting like gold for His Kingdom. They are not dangerous for society. Because they are society and they are called Kingdom of Heaven in the earth. God’s Kingdom in already here on earth in their hearts, lives and bodies. They are this perfect society which is also goal in Islam. Muslims all over the world are trying to build such perfect Islam state. But is is already here on the earth. It is already constructed by the hands of God and His Spirit. Name of this state is Kingdom of Heaven. Who is ruling over our lives? He- the most perfect and gracious God. Kingdom of God is already in Saudi Aabia, in Kuwait in the UAE in Iran, Palestine, Israel, in Africa….it is our home….our bodies…our hearts…we are stones of this great and perfect building -His Kingdom-and we are called church. We are His inheritance, His sons. We are for Him and He is for us. ….it counts on individuals’ intentions, which can never be guaranteed in all criminals. I was thinking of men who rape girls; will we just tell them repent and no punishment; what if they said ok, and they did it over and over? how can a society be secured in this case?- laws will provide security of any society here. But security of our Christian society, I have just mentioned above, is God. He will take cafe of us, of our society called church, He will never leave us.
I had a copy of the Holy Book for ages in my drawer. I read few verses previously – in that time I told you I was interested in Christianity – but I didn’t continue, and ever since that time it was left there. Yesterday, I took it out and started reading. I was reading in Matta – I think Mathew – (my book is in Arabic). it said after number 5 under a title name ‘The Anger’:
“You have heard that it was said for those before you: Don’t kill, and who ever kills the judgment should fall on him. but I say to you: Whoever gets angry from his brother without right should have the judgment falling on him ….” later after few lines, under another title named ‘Adultery’, I found: “And you heard that it was said for those before you: don’t commit adultery. But I say to you : whoever looks to a woman with desire, has committed adultery in his heart. So, if it was your right eye troubling you pick it out and through it away, because it is better for you that one of your organs gets corrupted than having your body thrown into Hell“- God says here about punishment for sins. What is punishment? Punishment is isolation and impossibility to come closer to the most perfect God because of our sins. Such state of desolation is called a hell. A place of fire and flame instead of living water- Holy Spirit. No matter which are sins…they just separate us from perfect God. God says here in this passage that no matter which sins you are doing. Result of sins will be separation from God. But God has solution for us! Believe in Jesus Christ- Son of God- and you will be forgiven. All your sins will be forgiven. Just keep faith and live with God in this life!
Well … those parts confused me much … they are not quite the same as what you say … I will tell you what I understood and you tell me if there are any other meanings …I think that Jesus here is not even satisfied by the fact of punishing the one who is committing a major sin; but he would prefer that it will be applied to any one who will come closer to this sin. – God said that punishment for sin is death. What does it mean? It means that we all will die if He -God-will not save us. We all are sinners. But knowing that salvation is not found in any ONE else except Jesus Christ, then living with Him we are saved and we have salvation! But how to live with Him? Just obey Him and His words!
The problem I face here is that in the second part it is said that the alternative to stopping ourselves from committing the sin is having our bodies thrown into Hell!- yes. How perfect God can live with perfect killers, murders, prostitutes, rapists, mad people, sexual immoral people? Or God should be immoral too and God for immoral people or we should be perfect with perfect God! There is no madness in our God! No madness at all! Why! Because madness is a state of existence without HIM! He cannt be without Himself! He IS. He WAS. He WILL COME TO US. He is immortal, eternal, everlasting. He is the Beginning and the End. His name is LOVE.
It sounds so scary for me … it is said by Jesus himself … and he is not only demanding punishments for those who commit sins, but also for those who commit even a minor sin like having a look! and here he is acknowledging punishments! are we to be punished for our sins?!- we all will see His face and will be before Him during the Day of Judgment. All who will believe in Jesus Christ that He is God will be saved and will pass from death to eternity with God. Look what God says:
Most assuredly, I say to you,
he who hears My word
and believes in Him
who sent Me has everlasting life,
and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. John 5:24
You know … few years ago when I was interested in Christianity I had different concerns … but talking to you is like reading in a big book … all discussions flow over and over in different directions … I want to discuss all other concerns with you. But may be in another email. That’s is too much for you to have all in one email.
Prophecy about Jesus (Issaiah 53)
He has no form or comeliness;
And when we see Him,
There is no beauty that we should desire Him.
He is despised and rejected by men,
A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He opened not His mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
He was taken from prison and from judgment,
And who will declare His generation?
For He was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
And they made His grave with the wicked—
But with the rich at His death,
Because He had done no violence,
Nor was any deceit in His mouth.
Praise The Lord Jesus for Your forgiveness!
Thank YOU for your sufferings! For Your LOVE!
God you are GREAT!
