The King of Kings

 

Brothers,

soon we all will be witnesses of the Christmas celebration all over the world. Christmas Day is a holiday observed generally on December 25 to commemorate the birth of Jesus/’Isa Al Massih. The date is not known to be the actual birthday of Jesus. But this day one more time gives us a chance to recall or meditate on events and the Holy Scripture of God to SEE our current position before God and in retrospect and looking into our future. Today let’s allow God to explain us who He is putting things in perspective.

Jesus the Messianic King is born in Bethlehem, in Judea (now Palestine).

Do you know and realize that the title given to Jesus in the Bible,

“KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS” is at odds with the Qur’an?

Not only does the Qur’an denounce calling any human being LORD, the Ahadith state:

Allah’s Apostle said, “The most awful name in Allah’s sight on the Day of Resurrection, will be (that of) a man calling himself Malik Al-Amlak (the king of kings).”

(Sahih Bukhari, vol. 8, number 224)

Who is this King? After Jesus was born, Wise Men, the Magi, also referred to as the Three Wise Men, are a group of distinguished foreigners who are said to have visited Jesus after His birth, bearing gifts. They came to look for Him, probably from an area which is now in either Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia or the Yemen. They brought with them three gifts.

 

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, ‘Where is the ONE who has been born King of the Jews? We saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him.’ When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born. ‘In Bethlehem in Judea,’ they replied, ‘for this is what the prophet has written:

 

“‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a Ruler who will be the Shepherd of my people Israel.'”

 

So, as we can see the birth of Isa Al Massih was in Bethlehem and it was the fulfillment of the prophecy said by God many centuries BEFORE His birth on earth. Why? Because Jesus was really born in Bethlehem!!! As God foretold it through prophets!

 

On coming to the house, the Magi saw the child with His mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped Him. Then they opened their treasures and presented Him with gifts of gold and of frankincense and of myrrh. The mystery of the Incarnation of God in human body became evident and seen by many people. God became a Man. God sent His Son to be born in human body on earth to REVEAL the nature or essence of God- LOVE. Many people worshipped false gods and idols but God chose one group of people- Jews- to give them hundreds of prophecies on the birth, life and death of the ONE Man who should be called the REDEEMER of people. He should be the ONE who takes the sin of the world to make us FREE of our sins. Muslims can say that Jesus is not Ibn Allah. But in this case you CLAIM that Allah is a LIAR. God/Allah is not playing with us in games! He gave us His prophecies like bread or food. You can accept this bread and survive during the year of calamity or you can reject this food and then you will be left ALONE dieying from spiritual and physical destruction and your sins. God was not playing in games when He said in HIS Holy Scripture:

 

“Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy; let them sing before the LORD, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity.” (Psalm 96:11-13)

 

One can see clearly in the prophecies of Allah that the Messiah is tasked with ruling in the name of God. A famous prophesy reads, “But you Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be RULER over Israel whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.” The prophet continues, “Therefore Israel will be abandoned until the time when she who is in labour gives birth and the rest of his brothers return to join the Israelites. He will stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God… for then his greatness will reach to the ends of the earth. And he will be their peace.” (Micah 5:2-5)

Brothers, here God CLEARLY said that Isa Al Massih will be Malik/King!

Therefore Israel will be abandoned until the time when the rest of His brothers Arabs and Muslims and gentiles return to join the Israelites in the WORSHIP of the TRUE Allah Jesus. That’s why many Jews are not believers in Jesus. They refused to believe in Ibn Allah, that’s why they are ABANDONED by Allah. But soon they will SEE Isa Al Massih and they will worship Him.

Is the Messiah’s Kingdom local or global? In other words, “Is Jesus the King of the Jews only or is He also King over Arabs and the whole world? Since the Messiah’s greatness extends to “the ends of the earth, as we can see it in the prophecy above, the implication is that His Kingdom would be worldwide!

Speaking of the Isa Al Massih, a prophet Zechariah prophesied,

“Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See your King comes to you, righteous and having salvation, … He will proclaim peace to the nations. His rule will extend from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth.” (Zechariah 9:9-10)

 

Lets summarize what we’ve explained: Soon the world is invited to celebrate the Coming of its King. Who is this King? We traced a few prophecies that foretell Isa Al Masih’s reign, notably the worldwide scope. Now we’ve reached a point where we need to consider: Have these predictions really been fulfilled? We can discuss over 300 prophecies said by God many centuries before the birth of Isa Al Massih that Jesus should be the King and the Lord and the Redeemer of all people on earth. According to the prophecies of Allah, He should take the sin of the world and die on our place to make us free of our sins. But let’s look what Jesus said. Even His life shows us that He was indeed, a King:

Shortly before the crucifixion Jesus was interrogated by the Roman governor. Pilate pointedly asked Jesus was, “Are you the king of the Jews?” To which Jesus replied, “Yes, it is as you say.” (Luke 23:3)

Then Pilate instructed those crucifying Jesus Christ to nail a title above His head which reads, King of the Jews. But is that all it means? Who is able to forgive sins to people? Only Allah. Jesus forgave sins to people. Who is able to cure incurable diseases and illnesses? Only God. Jesus cured such people. Who is able to return soul into a human? Only God. Jesus resurrected people.

Perhaps you find these questions perplexing? Regardless how you feel, one thing is certain: we’re not talking about a trivial matter or about a false prophet, or about an average prophet! We are talking about ONE Man who is awaited by Islam and Jews and Christians to come back to earth.

Let us ponder some words of warning from Jesus,

“On judgment day many will say to Me, Lord, Lord … Not everyone who calls out to Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of My Father in heaven.” (Matthew 7:22,21)

 

Jesus acknowledged His rightful position as King. It is clear that Jesus will ultimately JUDGE “all the nations” as King. We read this in Matthew 25:31-34,

“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. Then the King will say to those on his right, …”

 

Look brothers what Allah said about the  worldwide reign of Ibn Allah:  Revelation chapter 19 verses 1,6,7,11,16:

“I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting, “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God … for our LORD God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice … I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war… On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written, ‘KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.’”

 

Acts 4:11-12 states, “Salvation is found in no-one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”

 

It means brothers, that DURING the Judgment Day the ONE Man who is the Son of God is going to judge you and show you His pierced hands. He was killed instead of you on the cross to forgive your sins. But if you reject Him and will not believe in Him, then you will reject Allah. How in this case your sins will be forgiven? If you reject Ibn Allah and His Father then how your iniquities, sins, transgressions, crimes will be forgiven? God said that there is NO OTHER name for you Muslims to be saved!

The event of the incarnation, holy birth of this Ruler is the reason for the Christmas season. Christmas is the opportunity to worship God, to KNOW Him, to bow down before Him in your hearts and minds and bodies in your homes, in masjid, in kanisa, in your lives! Salvation from Allah is a result of His mercy. God gives you salvation and eternal life ALREADY NOW during your earthly life. Accept God by accepting Ibn Allah! Repent of your sins, confess them to Allah during your prayer and COMMIT your heart to God to live in FAITH in Ibn Allah, to walk in His forgiveness of your sins and His love toward you!

“For He (God) delivered us from the domain of darkness,

and transferred us to the Kingdom of His beloved Son,

in whom we have redemption,

the forgiveness of sins.”

(Colossians 1:13,14)

Colossians 1

Greeting

1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,

2 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ who are in Colosse:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Their Faith in Christ

3 We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, 4 since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of your love for all the saints; 5 because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel, 6 which has come to you, as it has also in all the world, and is bringing forth fruit, as it is also among you since the day you heard and knew the grace of God in truth; 7 as you also learned from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf, 8 who also declared to us your love in the Spirit.

Preeminence of Christ

9 For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10 that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; 12 giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. 13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

Reconciled in Christ

19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, 20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.
21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled 22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight— 23 if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.

Sacrificial Service for Christ

24 I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church, 25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, 26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. 27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. 29 To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.

 

God Jesus said,

“I am the way and the truth and the life.

No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

John 14:6

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.

Contradictions in Islam and Qur’an

Alla

This is a refutation of Arsalan Iftikhar’s “Murder has no religion”.

Arsalan Iftikhar is an international human rights lawyer and former National Legal Director of the Council on American Islamic Relations (the organization named by U.S. Federal prosecutors in 2007 as an un-indicted co-conspirator in a Hamas funding case involving the Holy Land Foundation). He is a contributing author of an award-winning book and is well-known for his interviews, commentaries and analyses which have regularly appeared in virtually every major media outlet in the world.

In this article we will analyse a piece he had written for CNN, titled “Murder has no religion”. It was written in response to the Fort Hood massacre, in which the “Allahu Akbar” screaming U.S. Army major, Nidal Malik Hasan, murdered 13 people and wounded 30 others at a US military installation.

Analysis

Most of the world’s 1.57 billion Muslims know that the Holy Quran states quite clearly that, “Anyone who kills a human being … it shall be as though he has killed all of mankind. … If anyone saves a life, it shall be as though he has saved the lives of all of mankind.”

No, it is not clear at all. It is unfortunate that even his opening sentence is a mistruth. There is no such verse in the Qur’an. What Iftikhar has presented us with is a butchered and out-of-context paraphrasing of Qur’an 5:32 meant to mislead those who have little knowledge of Islamic scripture.

This verse is examined in detail here. In summary; it is written in past tense, and clearly does not apply to Muslims but to “the Children of Israel” i.e. the Jews. When the clause (omitted from the verse by Iftikhar) which allows killing is reinserted and we read it in context with the next two verses, it is in actual fact a chilling warning to non-believers who cause “mischief” in the land.

Accordingly, it should come as little surprise to any reasonable observer that when Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan recently committed his shocking acts of mass murder at Fort Hood, Texas, America’s Muslim community of over 7 million felt an added sense of horror and sadness at this senseless attack against the brave men and women of the U.S. armed forces.

Another mistruth. Contrary to the bloated figures provided by CAIR, and accepted by many apologists, media outlets, and even the President of the United States, and in spite of the massive influx of Muslim refugees, a Pew survey carried-out in October, 2009 found there are only 2.454 million Muslims in the U.S. Percentage-wise, Islam represents a minuscule 0.8 percent of the United States religious make-up.

Quite possibly the message he was trying to convey to us was that there are many Muslims in America yet there are so few terrorist attacks on American soil. Unfortunately this is not the case. There have been several terror attacks in the U.S. since 9/11 and countless foiled attempts.

Furthermore, the relative silence among America’s Muslim community and the worlds Muslim population in general suggests a passive acceptance of violence perpetuated in the name of Islam. There is no way he could possibly know how America’s Muslims felt in regards to the senseless deaths of innocent civilians at the hands of this Muslim terrorist, and his empty words are meant to pull at America’s heart strings.

True to form, many conservative media pundits wasted little time in pointing to reports that Hasan had said “Allahu Akbar” (Arabic for “God is great”) at the start of his murderous rampage. News coverage continuously showed the looping convenience store black-and-white videotape footage of Hasan wearing traditional white Islamic garb.

Another mistruth. The Arabic word kebir means “great,” while akbar means “greater”. These two words are not interchangeable. For evidence of this, we need only look to Qur’an 2:219 which uses both words. The word for “God” in Arabic is “Ilah” not “Allah”, as evidenced in the Shahada.

Therefore we can rightly conclude that “Allahu akbar” does not mean “God is great”, but “Allah is greater“. This is the traditional war cry of Jihadists and was used by Muhammad himself before he launched his attack on the Jews of Khaibar.

And there is no reason why the media should be criticized for reporting the words of a terrorist before his murderous rampage, and there is no reason why video footage of the terrorist in question should be suppressed.

Does Arsalan Iftikhar wish to inhibit reporting on certain criminals based on their own choice to overtly parade their religious affiliation?

Muslims who label themselves as “moderate” need to become assertive against their co-religionists which they refer to as “extremists,” rather than attempt to hide religious extremism from the eyes of non-Muslims by sweeping matters under the carpet.

First of all, someone simply saying “Allahu Akbar” while committing an act of mass murder no more makes their criminal act “Islamic” than a Christian uttering the “Hail Mary” while murdering an abortion medical provider, or someone chanting “Onward, Christian Soldiers” while bombing a gay nightclub, would make their act “Christian” in nature.

Iftikhar must be confused. He seems to be contradicting himself here. If he is trying to persuade his readers that these acts can be ascribed to a religion, then he is doing a great job with the above paragraph.

However, what he is most likely attempting here is a logical fallacy known as ad hominem tu quoque. It is something that is used when a position is indefensible. Hence it has become a staple for Islamic apologists who are left with no other defense than to shame critics into silence by disparaging other faiths in an attempt to bring them down to the same level as Islam.

If we delve a little deeper, the weakness of this argument becomes apparent.

Ignoring the perpetrators possible religious affiliations, the number of individuals killed in connection with abortion providers in the past 15 years does not even reach double figures. In case the reader is interested, the exact figure is 9.

If we look to other faiths, in the U.K., 92 per cent of terrorist-related prisoners unsurprisingly describe themselves as Muslim, while five are Buddhist and one is a self-described Pagan.

Does this mean Buddhism is a violent religion? Of course not. It is only natural that there are a few hateful adherents in any religion; its human nature and you will find this in all groups no matter what world-view they adhere to.

If violent acts perpetrated by Muslims were as rare as it is among adherents of other faiths, then Iftikhar may have a point. Sadly this is not the case.

The number of individuals killed in religiously motivated attacks by the hands of Muslims in 2008 alone numbers 10,779. That’s more people killed by Islamists in 2008 than in all 350 years of the Spanish Inquisition combined.

Simply put; murder is murder and has no religion whatsoever.

This, like many of his statements, is nonsensical. Religiously motivated murder obviously has a religion.

Also in counter to his previous statement, it was not simply a case of a madman screaming “Allahu Akbar” while committing a random act of mass murder, but a premeditated act of religious violence.

On the day of the massacre before leaving for the military base, Major Hasan gave a neighbor a copy of the Qur’an and told her, “I’m going to do good work for God”.

He once gave a lecture to colleagues in which he said non-Muslims “should be beheaded and have boiling oil poured down their throats,” and on another occasion he told them non-Muslims were “infidels condemned to hell who should be set on fire.”[12]

He had also previously attempted to contact extremists associated with Al Qaeda, but was not taken seriously.

Professor Juan Cole of the University of Michigan once wrote that, “One most certainly does insult Muslims by tying their religion to movements such as terrorism or fascism. Muslims perceive a double standard in this regard: Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols would never be called ‘Christian terrorists’ even though they were in close contact with the Christian Identity Movement.

This is possibly one of the most widely perpetuated myths in the West. While his parents were Catholics, Timothy McVeigh was a self-described Agnostic, so unless we are to determine religious affiliation through genetic ties, to describe him as a “Christian terrorist” would be quite a stretch for anyones imagination.

Unlike Nidal Malik Hasan, McVeigh did not cry “Jesus is Greater,” or “Buddha is Greater,” because he was motivated by his hatred of the federal government, and not by his non-existent religious beliefs.

No one would speak of Christo-fascism or Judeo-fascism as the Republican[s] … speak of Islam-o-fascism. … [Many people also] point out that [it was] persons of Christian heritage [who] invented fascism, not Muslims.”

Unlike other faiths, Islam is a political ideology as well as a religion. It is an accepted fact among Muslims that there is no concept of “separation of ‘Church’ and State” in the Islamic faith, so it is only natural that they would desire to replace existing laws with the Shari’ah once Muslims become the majority in a democratic nation, in fact this is an obligatory requirement. Even as a minority, Muslims have called for the implementation of Shari’ah in many countries the world over.

People of a “Christian heritage” have inventented numerous things, many of a positive nature, but this hardly makes the inventors or their inventions anymore “Christian” than the Dalai Lama, and quite rightly, no one would speak of “Christo-fascism” or “Judeo-fascism,” as other faiths have no equivalent to the Shari’ah. The concept of religious state laws do not exist in Christianity, and Israel, the world’s only Jewish state, does not apply religious laws.

Conversely, there are many Muslim terrorist organizations who aim to install Shari’ah by force, and the majority of the worlds predominantly Muslim nations adhere to some form of Shari’ah or enforce religious laws in parallel with the countries legal system.

According to Pentagon statistics, there were over 3,400 American Muslims serving in the active-duty military as of April 2008. The Wall Street Journal reported that many officials believe “the actual number of [American] Muslim soldiers may be at least 10,000 higher than the Pentagon statistics.”

Criticism of Islam and its negative influence on many of its adherents and the criticism of Muslims as individuals are not the same thing. Honest critics of Islam do not claim every single person who identifies themselves as “Muslim” is a terrorist or “extremist”, yet apologists never seem to tire, as demonstrated by Iftikhar above, of attempting to conflate the two issues.

Pointing to peaceful Muslims, who are generally ignorant of the tenants of their own faith, is an overused strawman.

Thus, with thousands of patriotic American Muslim women and men proudly serving in our United States Army in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, perhaps it would behoove our army leaders to consider sending a strong message of American unity by appointing an American Muslim to be a part of the prosecution team against Hasan. This would help show that the mass murders allegedly committed by Hasan have nothing to do with the teachings of our religion.

To anyone but the most naive among us, this would not prove a thing. As with Iftikhar’s protest against reporting the words of Major Hasan, it would simply be another attempt at manipulating public feelings.

The larger point is that Muslims in America completely disavow and wash our hands of any acts of murder (or terrorism) claimed to be performed in the name of our religion. Acts of mass murder, regardless of their time or place, are simply ungodly criminal acts that have no religion whatsoever.

True to form, Arsalan Iftikhar finishes as he started, with another mistruth. In reality, one in four younger U.S. Muslims have said in a 2007 poll that suicide bombings to defend their religion is acceptable. This is hardly surprising when one considers that a 2008 report revealed that almost 80 percent of U.S. mosques preach anti-Western extremism.

If even a fraction of such figures were to be applied to any other world faith they would cause major concern, but when referencing Islam they hardly cause a ripple. It is the same throughout the Muslim populations in the West, and in the East extremists are consistently in the majority.

Conclusion

In conclusion, Arsalan Iftikhar’s entire piece consists of nothing more than a mixture of illogical nonsense and mistruths, followed by one logical fallacy after another.

When one learns of the shear volume in Islamic terrorist incidents taken place around the world, and the numbers of those who support terror and the suppression of free speech, only a fool would think there is no connection between that and the Islamic faith.

Once you read Islamic scriptures as a practicing Muslim would, it is confirmed.

It is written that the least on earth will be the greatest in Heaven.  Jesus came to save us, and by His example He showed us what love is.  He showed us that love is not placing ourselves ahead of everyone else, but love is to serve each other.  And He showed us this by His Own example.

I do not see this in Islam.

A question entered my mind after I read your email.  Jesus Christ warned us that this life, in this world, is a spiritual war.  He has warned us that the very devil can disguise himself even as an angel of light and deceive people.  So He has provided His people with weapons of spiritual warfare, in order that we can fight in this war and be conquerers, in order to protect us against being deceived.

So now I’m curious.  In Islam, are your people given any such weapons of spiritual warfare, to protect yourselves against attacks and deception from the enemy?  And if yes, can you explain to me what these spiritual weapons are?  I’m asking, because I’m trying to understand why you are so convinced that this is truly God Who you are in contact with.

Ephesians 6:11
Put on the full Armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

Ephesians 6:13
Therefore put on the full Armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

It is by repentance in Jesus Christ, and the Gift of the Holy Spirit, that a man’s sins are thrown into REMISSION.  Do you understand what this awesome word means?  When talking about cancer, it means the disease is halted in a man and there remains no detectable trace of it!  This is the victory that Jesus Christ has over sin, and in Christ, men can share in His victory also – as Sons and Daughters of the Living God!

It is by the Holy Spirit of God given to them that the children of God learn to walk by faith, and not by sight.  It is how we are able to discern truth, from the devil’s lies!  It is how we do spiritual warfare every day, and are conquerors!  Not by our own power, since we have no power greater than you – but by the power of the Holy Spirit of God!

God promises His children many awesome, glorious things, Ahmed.  If I had seen that God’s promises were false, and that He did not deliver the things He promises, then I would have known that His Word was not true, and I would not have believed in Him!  But I have seen, instead, that His Word IS TRUE – ALWAYS AND FOREVER!

This is where you have been dangerously deceived.  It is written that NO SIN WILL BE ALLOWED TO ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD!  So then what if you are forgiven of your sins even a million times over?  Your sin still remains in you, and you will never be allowed to enter God’s Kingdom!  Only by repentance, when a man is born again in Jesus Christ, is his sin forced into remission by the power of God’s Most Holy Spirit!

Acts 2:38
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

John 3:3
Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again!

Dear Ahmed, please listen to me and please believe me.  I HAVE NO HATRED IN MY HEART FOR THE MUSLIM PEOPLE!  I have felt affection in my heart for you and your people for many years in my life.  I see you as a people who have love and passion in their hearts for the things of God!  But yes, I know you have been so deceived.  And so I have come here as a witness of the truth, to witness to you that Jesus Christ is truly the Son of the Living God, and that His promises and His Word are ALL TRUE!

It is written that when a man repents of his sins, and he is baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, then the Gift of the Holy Spirit is given to him.  That man has now become a new creature in Jesus Christ – set free, by the Son, from sin and death and hell.  Once dead in his sins, he is now alive in Jesus Christ.

John 3:3

Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the Kingdom of God unless they are born again.”

A man knows, Gamal, when he has been born again.  He knows the man inside himself, and when that man is now suddenly changed and new.  There is no other who can cause a man to be born again, except the Living God, through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Now based on what you all have been telling me, Muslims believe that “Allah” will forgive them their sins, and then allow them to enter his kingdom.  But all we have to do is look at human behavior, and all of mankind, to know that if a man is only forgiven, then he will continue to sin again.  So then “Allah’s” kingdom will be an eternal kingdom filled with continuous sin.  And that is not the Kingdom of God, Gamal – that is hell.

English 101?  I wasn’t bringing your English skills into question.

Yes, a man with his fingers in his ears.  The accusations you’ve levied against the Christian faith are of crimes, and abominations, committed by the Roman Catholic church.  The Roman Catholic church is described in shocking detail, with 100% accuracy, in the Book of Revelation.  Jesus Christ prophesied against this imposter almost 400 years prior to her birth out of Rome.  Who else, but the Son of God, could prophesy such things so well in advance?  It is humanly impossible.

And if you are not a man with his fingers in his ears, then how is it that you cannot recognize an imposter from the genuine article?  I mean, in times of warfare, this is one of the most obvious tactics, for the enemy to disguise himself in order to ambush his prey.  But yet even the most obvious, most apparent thing has eluded you.  The enemy wears his disguise, and you do not recognize the enemy, but have believed the disguise instead.

So now, since you have already failed once to recognize what is most obvious, then it becomes a reasonable question to ask:

Is it possible that you are also mistaken about this religion which you so love?

So what if Islam is growing fast?  Jesus Christ already warned that this would happen – the devil has succeeded in deceiving the “whole world”, and the way to life is narrow, and only a few find it.  And I know it from my own observations mankind that this is true – that it is always the masses who are deceived, and the few who are left standing alone fighting for the truth.

Have you ever seen how lemmings behave?  They all follow each other is large masses, in search of a cliff, and then when they find the cliff they all jump off and die.

You keep saying my religion, my religion.  And then you compare me to a Roman Catholic, a church that I denounced as an imposter more than 20 years ago.  So then what do you know about my religion, when you and I stand opposed to the same enemy, and then you call me by the enemy’s name?

Then, as I got older, I began hearing lies being told by the Catholic church.  I began to notice hypocrisy in the religion, and amongst its leaders.  From a young age, I was convinced that God was perfect – 100% perfect.  So I knew something was wrong – that God was not a liar, and not a hypocrite.  And that He would not appoint liars and hypocrites as the leaders of His Church.

I eventually left the Catholic church, and never returned.  I haven’t belonged to any of the world’s churches in almost 20 years, having recognized that the Protestant churches are mere daughters of their Roman mother.

My point is this, Walid:  There came a time in my life when I had to ask myself whether it was my religion I loved more than God, or did I love God more than I loved my religion?

See, if a man loves God first and foremost, then no harm can come from questioning his religion.  If his religion turns out to be the correct one, then the man’s faith in God is only reaffirmed.  But if the man’s religion turns out to be false, then by leaving his religion, he will only move closer to God.

I don’t understand how intelligent men cannot see this.  When I read your email, for instance, I could clearly see a man with his fingers in his ears, saying to me, “I am Muslim, I won’t listen, I am Muslim, I won’t listen.”

This is not philosophy, Walid, this is a fact of your religion, as it’s been explained to me by your people:

You say you will gain entry into the Kingdom of God by the mere forgiveness of your god.  But it’s obvious that mere forgiveness does not undo the damage caused by previous sins, and it does not prevent men from continuing to sin again and again.  Mere men, who are atrocious sinners, are capable of the mercy and forgiveness you speak of.  So then reason dictates that this cannot be the Kingdom of God you will be entering, when you enter in as the same sinner that you are today.  A sinner who’s been forgiven, and who will continue to sin.  This is not the Kingdom of God, Walid, where sin will reign eternal – this is hell.

It should trouble you deeply that Jesus Christ came to give you something that your god has not, and cannot, offer you – the complete redemption, and remission from your sins.  Only by this criteria will any man be allowed entry into the Kingdom of God, where no sin is allowed to enter in – he must be born again in Jesus Christ, cleansed and freed from his sin.  Again, this is not philosophy – this is pure and perfect logic.

You know, Walid, if I’m lying.  So then tell me if I’m lying.

Am I lying when I say you are a sinner?

Am I lying when I say that you are a prisoner to sin?

Am I lying when I say that you are helpless to free yourself from your sin?

Am I lying when I say that even after you’ve been forgiven, you still continue to sin?

Am I lying when I say that it makes no sense that the Kingdom of God should be filled with sin?

Why are you sitting there, Walid, with your fingers in your ears?  Is it because you love God?  Or is it because you love your religion?  When I know that I am speaking sense, and you say you don’t want to talk to me anymore, then I have to believe you are a man who is in love with his religion.

One of the major differences I see is that you believe your god will forgive you your sins, but then what about the remission of sin?  Jesus Christ forgives you your sins, but He also brings your sin into remission.  And without the remission of sin, a man can be forgiven, but he will only continue to sin again and again.  So then the man is no better off if he is only forgiven and nothing more – in that case, he still remains a sinner, and a prisoner to sin.  And it is written that no sin will ever be allowed to enter the Kingdom of God.

Bahira started that by attacking Islam and telling lies and false allegations.. naturally we have to defend our religion.. we started to read about your religion to find these terrifying facts …

You just joined us few days ago.. you want us to reverse time and start from the beginning because of you ??? Is this reasonable???

And you asked me to send you the questions one by one.. If you are observant , I sent you some in my emails .. and brother Walid sent you some…

You have your time to answer them …

Last thing… we are used to people like you appear suddenly and disappear suddenly along the course of our discussion…

I feel honored to be here, Kamal, talking amongst your group.  But I can see why some people might feel driven away.  Maybe they come here to talk with you, and when you overwhelm them, they feel it’s hopeless.  So then they just leave.

Since I first met Bahira, she has expressed nothing but love and concern to me for your people.  I’m sorry you feel she has been “attacking” you or your religion, Kamal.  Because me, I have only wished that I could meet more people who were willing to go through all this effort me.  People do not tend to put themselves out the way Bahira has unless they truly care.

Look at your last email, for example, the one below.  You throw out multiple questions that each require careful consideration if they are going to be answered properly.  But instead of being patient, to make sure you receive the proper answers, you jump ahead to the next email filled with more and more questions.

This mass murdering of Muslims you speak of, this did take place, and it is an atrocity!  And if you had done the proper research, you would know that it is the Roman Catholic church that committed these crimes against the Muslim people, and not Christians!  Christians, themselves, have been murdered by this same imposter church that has also murdered your own people!

This one subject alone requires sufficient time and patience in order that the truth can be rightfully revealed, and understood.  But you do not have that patience.  Instead, you rush about like a bull in a china shop!

You are only harming yourself by your attitude, Kamal.  By your impatience, the truth will escape you.  And if it is merely an argument you are searching for, then that is what you will find wherever you go.  You will have your arguments, but not the truth.

If you want to discuss these very serious questions in a responsible manner, then please do so.  I am listening, and I will try answer your questions.  But if you only wish to argue, I am the wrong person for that.

What did Jesus say?  He said that His children are not of this world, just as Jesus is not of this world.  He said that if His children were of this world, then the world would listen to them.  But the world will not listen to them, because the world loves darkness and the children of God bring the light of Jesus Christ into the world.  The darkness hates the light.

Why are you proud, Kamal, that you can read the Koran in public without trouble, and I cannot read the Holy Bible in public without trouble?  This world is clearly filled with evil, and run by evil.  Is it something to be proud of, then, to be acceptable in the sight of evil?

Please, Kamal, you keep telling me I must use my God-given mind to think reasonably.  You must do the same.

There are good and bad parents in the world.  There are parents who would go to any lengths to save their child from trouble and danger.  And then there are parents who couldn’t be bothered, who would say it is up to the child to save himself. This is the difference I see between this “Allah”, and the True and Living God.  “Allah” would never lower himself, as you said, to come down into the filth and darkness to save his children.  But the True and Living God does, and He has, and He continues to.

It is written in Scripture, Kamal, that it doesn’t matter what we possess, if we do not possess love.  Without love, we are nothing.  So when people believe in a “god” that will not “lower” himself to love his children as the Living God loves His children, then these people are deceived, and they believe in a god that is not great at all – since without love, there is no greatness.

1 Corinthians 13:2

“If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.”

Romans 5:8

“But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Do you know what I see, Kamal?  I see that in Islam, you are being taught pride and not love.  A “god” that will not come to this world to save you is not a loving god, but a prideful god.  And by his pride, he teaches you to be prideful also.  There is no greatness in pride, but in love.

For Ahmed, Kamal and Mr. Walid Ashoor:

Hello Kamal,

You wrote: “your answer seems closer to “YES” .. if so, who was running the infinite UNIVERSE while the three unity were in Mary’s womb?..”

That is a good question. Before creation there was God. He (God) is a Trinity — the indivisible union of Father, Word of God, and Spirit of God. Only one Person within the Holy Trinity chose to cloth Himself in human flesh. That one Person is “Word of God”. He became a willing Servant for the other two Persons within the Holy Trinity who did not put on human flesh.

Back to your question: “Who was running the infinite UNIVERSE while the three unity were in Mary’s womb?”

The three did not unite in Mary’s womb. The One did. He is called Word of God. He only clothed Himself in human body for 33 years. Within those 33 years He was vulnerable (weak and defenseless) as He solely depended on the other Two Members of the Holy Trinity who never entered into Mary’s womb.

Jesus is forever called by two names: “Son of God” and “Son of Man”. It means “Begotten of God” and “Begotten of Man.” Jesus is begotten of God because God placed something of Himself (His Very own Word) inside the Person of Jesus. Jesus is also begotten of Man because of His human mother, Mary. Jesus—Son of God, Son of Man.

God is a Spirit. God is a Trinity. This means, the Father is a Spirit, The Word of God is a Spirit, and the Spirit of God is a Spirit.

Does the Word of God who is a Spirit need to eat? No; but however, the human body in which He lives had to survive by eating and drinking. And naturally, the body cleans itself by going to the bathroom. The body, itself, is not the Word of God, but rather a container in which the Spirit called “Word of God” lived. The Body served a greater purpose for all mankind. Because Word of God lived in the Body, the Body remained sinless and holy for 33 years. This perfect and Holy Body that has done absolutely nothing wrong—committed no sin for 33 years, died on the Cross as the perfect and holy Sacrifice of the sins of mankind.

Did the Spirit who is called “Word of God” died on the Cross? No, God cannot die and His Word cannot die. But the Body in which “Word of God” lived did die. This is the Body that came out of the Virgin’s Womb in which the Spirit called “Word of God” lived and kept it holy and sinless for 33 years.

But then someone will say, “Since the Spirit called “Word of God and the Body in which he lived are separated from each other, the it is the Body that came out of the Virgin’s Womb that suffered for the sins of mankind — not The Spirit called “Word of God.” That is not true. Both the Body that came out of the Virgin’s Womb and the Spirit called “Word of God” did suffer. For example: A wicked and mean person can break your spirit by inflicting prolong tortures (pains) on your body. In that sense, your spirit suffers due to the long suffering inflicted on your body.

Hello Ahmed,

You wrote: “Yes our Jesus who has never been crucified.”

Who is your Jesus? To our understanding Muslims do not have a Jesus. They have a Esau.

The name of Jesus that is given in the Quran is Isa, which is the Arabic equivalent to Esau (Genesis 25:25). The correct Arabic name for Jesus would be Yesuwa which means “God is Salvation” or “God has saved”, similar to the Hebrew name Yeshuwa, which also means “God is Salvation” or “God has saved”. How can the Quran be certain of the identity of Jesus — the Man who the Quran believes the Jews did not kill on the Cross when the Quran misrecognized and miss-named Jesus?

Ahmed, you must never say, “Our Jesus.” You must say, “Our Esau.” There is only one Jesus. The Jews and Christians have Him. You have Isa, the Arabic equivalent to Esau. (Genesis 25:25)

Hello Walid,

No religion is good at putting restrictions on its god than Islam. In Islam Allah is tightly and properly squeezed to fit in the minds of his human followers. For example: In the Holy Bible God created man and woman without clothing. He told them to enjoy each other company and to reproduce and multiply. Genesis 2:25 reads, “And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.” God daily visited the man and his wife and walked with them. This was The Plan of God. Then sin entered into the lives of the man and the woman. Genesis 3:7 reads, “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons (clothing).” For the first time in their lives the man and the woman felt the need to cloth themselves in the presence of each other and also in the Presence of their God.

But because it is shameful for the Muslim’s Allah to look upon a naked man with his naked wife together and enjoying each other company as read so often in the “Song of Songs”, if a Muslim was to write the Adam and Eve’s story of Genesis, it would go like this: “Allah created Adam and Eve fully clothed. Allah told them to be fruitful and to reproduce, but only behind Allah’s back. Allah is not Omnipresence and he is also not all-seeing (Omni-vision). When Allah was about to visit the man and his wife, he sent his angel with a message of warning one week before he arrived so that the man and his wife can sew clothing together for their naked bodies; for it is inappropriate for Allah to look upon a naked body. And because Allah is too shameful and thus cannot watch a naked man in the presence of his naked wife behind closed a door, all sins committed behind the closed door of a man and his wife are unknown to Allah. Allah is not Omniscience (all-knowing).”

No religion is good at putting restrictions on its god than Islam. Sometimes one wonders “Do Muslims own to their Allah, or does their Allah own to them?”

Mr. Walid Ashoor who is in our group writes: “Of course, Allah is capable of doing everything but…. Not to degrade himself…..”

In other words, he (Mr. Walid Ashoor) frees Allah to do anything Allah wants, but with a certain restriction — Not to degrade himself. It seems Mr. Walid Ashoor owns Allah. Good for you, Mr. Walid Ashoor, you own a piece of the black stone in the Kaaba that was deposited on earth from a meteor. When you go to Mecca, you can stand over this meteor rock, wag your finger at it, and  say, “You are free to do anything you want, but do not degrade yourself.”

No religion is good at putting restrictions on its god than Islam.

What is the “degrade” of which Mr. Walid Ashoor speaks?

He explains: “What for He (Allah) comes into the womb of a woman and let his creatures crucify him to save us?”

We have to understand this: What Walid Ashoor calls a “degrade,” The Bible calls “compared by love.” John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that he (was compared by love to) gave his only begotten Son, so that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

And since nowhere in the Quran are we told that Allah is love, we can understand why he (Allah) is unable to make Mr. Walid Ashoor understand what it means to be “compared by love.”

Please forgive me. It seems I did not make myself clearer. I in no way intended to say “…the Holy Bible does not tell us directly that we should worship Jesus Christ, or that Jesus Christ is God .” What I intended to say is that the questions were not asked of Jesus: “Are you God? May we worship you?”

Of course Jesus claimed to be God. In fact the Jews were in better position to answer the question as to whether Jesus claimed to be God or not. Jesus asked the Jews in John 10:32 saying, “I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these (miracles) do you stone me?” The Jews responded: “We are not stoning you for any of these (miracles), but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.” The Jews were not stupid; they understood Jesus’ claims of Divinity. That is why they said, “…you, a mere man, claim to be God.”

I was not addressing Jesus’ claim to be God. I was addressing the questions Muslims frequently ask: “Did Jesus say, “I am God?” From the answer that the Jews gave, “…you, a mere man, claim to be God,” we can assume that Jesus at one time or more said to them, “I am God,” though it is not written out in the Bible.

Please forgive me, Linda. It seems I did not make myself clearer.

One more for Linda:

You asked: “In the Islamic religion, by what manner do Muslims believe they will gain entrance into the Kingdom of God?  Is there anyone who’s willing to explain this to me?”

I will. In Islam Muhammad is not only the Imam or spiritual superintendent (manager, supervisor) for Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, but Muhammad is also the savior of the world and all mankind.

Muhammad speaks as spiritual superintendent for Abraham, Moses, and Jesus in hadiths Ishaq:182: “When we arrived at the Temple in Jerusalem, we found Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, along with a company of prophets. I acted as their Imam in prayer. Moses was a ruddy faced man, thinly fleshed, curly haired with a hooked nose. Jesus was a reddish man with lank (thin, floppy) wet hair and many freckles.”

Muhammad is savior of the world and all mankind in Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 3: Narrated Anas: The Prophet said, “On the Day of Resurrection the Believers will assemble and say, ‘Let us ask somebody to intercede for us with our Lord.’ So they will go to Adam and say, ‘You are the father of all the people, and Allah created you with His Own Hands, and ordered the angels to prostrate to you, and taught you the names of all things; so please intercede for us with your Lord, so that He may relieve us from this place of ours.’ Adam will say, ‘I am not fit for this (i.e. intercession for you).’ Then Adam will remember his sin and feel ashamed thereof. He will say, ‘Go to Noah, for he was the first Apostle, Allah sent to the inhabitants of the earth.’ They will go to him and Noah will say, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking.’ He will remember his appeal to his Lord to do what he had no knowledge of, then he will feel ashamed thereof and will say, ‘Go to the Khalil–r-Rahman (i.e. Abraham).’ They will go to him and he will say, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking. Go to Moses, the slave to whom Allah spoke (directly) and gave him the Torah .’ So they will go to him and he will say, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking.’ and he will mention (his) killing a person who was not a killer, and so he will feel ashamed thereof before his Lord, and he will say, ‘Go to Jesus, Allah’s Slave, His Apostle and Allah’s Word and a Spirit coming from Him. Jesus will say, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking, go to Muhammad the Slave of Allah whose past and future sins were forgiven by Allah.’ So they will come to me and I will proceed till I will ask my Lord’s Permission and I will be given permission. When I see my Lord, I will fall down in Prostration and He will let me remain in that state as long as He wishes and then I will be addressed.’ (Muhammad!) Raise your head. Ask, and your request will be granted; say, and your saying will be listened to; intercede, and your intercession will be accepted.’ I will raise my head and praise Allah with a saying (i.e. invocation) He will teach me, and then I will intercede. He will fix a limit for me (to intercede for) whom I will admit into Paradise. Then I will come back again to Allah, and when I see my Lord, the same thing will happen to me. And then I will intercede and Allah will fix a limit for me to intercede whom I will let into Paradise, then I will come back for the third time; and then I will come back for the fourth time, and will say, ‘None remains in Hell but those whom the Quran has imprisoned (in Hell) and who have been destined to an eternal stay in Hell.’ ” (The compiler) Abu ‘Abdullah said: ‘But those whom the Qur’an has imprisoned in Hell,’ refers to the Statement of Allah: “They will dwell therein forever.” (16.29)

What is frustrating about debating with Muslims is that first you have to teach them their religion before you can bring them to your level intelligence in order to have a clear and decisive debate with them. Muslims will tell you that no man is the savior for mankind. Now we see Muhammad is not only the spiritual superintendent for Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, but Muhammad is also the savior of the world and all mankind — saving Jesus, Abraham, and Moses along with many other prophets.

Hello Gamal:

You suggested that Islam in the fastest growing religion in the world.

Actually the growth of Islam is over exaggerated (overstated, blown up). Christianity is growing faster than Islam. It seems a proud thing for Islam to put on Youtube few converts to Islam. Try to calculate the videos in which someone converted to Islam. You cannot get a total of 100 videos. Yet those same videos keep circulating over and over.

At this present moment Islam is contained; and it will remain contained until it addresses its violence and intolerance of other people which is totally rejected by all civilized people of the world. In other words, Islam must first be civilized before it can break out of its containment and grow. Islam is not the fastest growing religion in the world contrary to the few videos you see on Youtube which are equally matched by people converting to Christianity. (Check up convert to christianity from islam on Youtube.)

What Islam has goring is that it is being introduced in places where it has been foreign — Europe.  What Christianity has goring is that it is being introduced in places where it has been foreign — the Arab world. Christianity is doing far better in the Arab world than Islam is doing in Europe. Muhammad’s Allah is losing grounds in the Arab countries. Thanks largely in part to the war on terror which is deeply embedded in Islam and its mindset that says, “I kill you because you do not believe as I do. Then I will get 72 virgins from Allah.”

The pressure from the civilized world is on Islam to open its doors to Christianity to enter its borders and to spread its Gospel of Jesus Christ. Allah is breaking under the pressure as Islamic leaders are bowing one-by-one to the pressure from the civilized world. Light, in the name of freedom of speech and freedom of religion, has begun to shine in the strongholds of Allah’s dark world. Muslims love this light of hope, and dreams and tolerance. And this light will be the cause of death of Muhammad’s Allah. If you live long, and I hope you do, you too will say, “Christianity is the fastest growing religion in the world” as you see massive gatherings of Christians and churches in places of the so weakened (weak) Arab world you never dreamed of.

In his book entitled “Al Road Al Anf” (part 4, p. 240), Ibn Hisham, the great Islamic scholar, indicates that Abu Bakr (the daily companion of Muhammad) used to converse with Ibn Abu Rafi al-Ta’i and to say to him: “God—to whom belong the might and exaltation—has sent Muhammad with this religion for which he fought until people entered this religion by hook or by crook.”

The world has changed. And Muslims are disobeying Muhammad’s Allah whose power is not only upheld only by way terrorism, but also by hook and crook. Allah is already bleeding. He will die at the feet of Christians entering in and out of the Arab world at will with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Let us look at Quran 3:54-55 which predicts exactly what I am talking about. As freedom comes to the Arab world, Muslims will disobey Allah’s demand for terrorism, and then “…The followers of Jesus will be superior to Muslims…” Quran 3:54-55 reads, “And (the unbelievers) plotted and planned, and Allah too planned, and the best of planners is Allah.” “Behold! Allah said: “O Jesus! I will take thee and raise thee to Myself and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow thee superior to those who reject faith, to the Day of Resurrection: Then shall ye all return unto me, and I will judge between you of the matters wherein ye dispute.”

In his book entitledThe Corruption of Moslem Minds” (Barbed Wire Publishers, Las Cruces, New Mexico 2002, pp. 61-62), Dr. Nader Pourhassan writes: “The first time I read this verse (Quran 3:54) in the Koran, I could hardly believe my eyes. Even today, any Muslims I discuss this verse with is shocked. In the Koran, God tells all Muslims that the followers of Jesus will be exalted above the disbelievers until the Day of Resurrection. While there are some verses in the Koran that promise the world to the Muslims people if they follow its teachings, these are followed up with predictions that they will disobey their holy book, and not uphold its commands. God’s prediction that the Christians will succeed in doing so is even clearer in the following verse.” (Ibid., pp. 103-104)

Quran 61:14 “O ye who believe! Be ye helpers of Allah: As said Jesus the son of Mary to the Disciples, “Who will be my helpers to (the work of) Allah?” Said the disciples, “We are Allah’s helpers!” then a portion of the Children of Israel believed, and a portion disbelieved: But We gave power to those who believed (Israel), against their enemies, and they became the ones that prevailed.”

He concludes: “A Muslim may wish to argue that these verses refer to Muhammad and the Muslims as those who truly believe in Christ and dominate till the Resurrection Day. This explanation fails to resolve the issue. The passages do not say that Christ’s followers would only prevail from the time of Muhammad’s advent, but from the time that Christ was taken to God and unto the Day of Resurrection.”

In other words, Satan, also known as Muhammad’s Allah, has pronounced to you his own defeat so that it is not counted against him on the Day of Judgment. However, you, as a free person, have every right to lie to yourself by interpretation the verse differently in your favor. Quran 3:55 reads, “I will make those who follow thee (Jesus) superior to those who reject faith, to the Day of Resurrection.” Quran 61:14 reads, “…then a portion of the Children of Israel believed, and a portion disbelieved: But We gave power to those who believed (Israel), against their enemies, and they became the ones that prevailed.” You can explain it any way you want. Satan has spoken. Not even he can deny his own destruction. The Jews who wrote and put forth the New Testament along with the Christians will prevail over those who disbelieve in Jesus Christ. This includes Muslims.

The prediction is so accurate that right now Muslims are playing right in our hands. First we, in truth, damaged your reputation by calling you exactly what you are — a religion of terrorists. Then you spend the rest of your lives telling people how you are a religion of peace. Your children grow up believing you are a religion of peace, which is a total disobedience to Allah who said, “Fight the unbelievers until they submit to Islam.” It is this disobedience to not fight the unbelievers, but to live with them in peace that will damage and destroy your Allah.

If you live long, and I hope you do, you too will say, “Christianity is the fastest growing religion in the world” as you see massive gatherings of Christians and churches in places of the so weaken (weak) Arab world you never dreamed of.

At this present moment Islam is contained; and it will remain contained until it addresses its violence and intolerance which is totally rejected by all civilized people of the world. In other words, Islam must first be civilized before it can break out of its containment. Islam is not the fastest growing religion in the world contrary to the few videos you see on Youtube which are now equally matched by people converting from to Christianity.

Instead of watching over and over the same 100 or fewer videos on Youtube of people converting to Islam, you should look around your world, and see the pressure on Islam forcing it to be civilized, and how far into the Islamic world Christianity is spreading its Gospel of Jesus Christ through Radio broadcast, TV, and Internet.

Muhammad’s Allah is in trouble. He is not only bleeding, but he is also on life support. His people know he cannot survive in the bright shining light of freedom and democracy which is penetrating into the Arab world and paving the way for his demise.

United Nations: Article I of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: It reads, “All human being are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act toward one another in the spirit of brotherhood.”

This is what civilized people think. This is what will kill Allah. Perhaps Muhammad was a prophet after all when he predicted that of the 73 sects which the Quran will produce among the one billion Muslim people only one sect will enter into Allah’s paradise. So whenever you boast about Islam  being the fastest growing religion in the world, try to be specific by tell us which Islam do you mean. Do you mean the one sect who are Muslims or the 72 sects that are not Muslims?

Allah was right. True Muslims will never defeat and prevail over true Jews and Christians. Think about it and tell me again how Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. You need to stop watching Youtube videos and start looking around you especially in the Arab world.

Please forgive me, ladies and gentlemen. I hate to engage myself in negativism where I discuss topics in the worst light. But at times I have to engage myself in negativism because it is there that some people live.

The Father is God, if you attempt to prove Jesus IS God then then you’ll have two Gods in the Bible.

Omar and father of Omar are not the same person. Two persons. Common nationality means nothing. If Omar dies…does Omar’s father also die?

It doesn’t work sir.

This word ONLY shows that there are no other gods. They are idols and all who worship them are idol worshipers.
Ethnicity of Omar and his father shows THEIR UNITY. They are united by common origin evident in their blood.
That’s why not all americans can pretend to be arabs!

lets imagine that Omar’s father got killed by his neighbor arab, did the son Omar die or will you punish the father? No.

The concept in the statement must be applicable to all aspects of the bible if you want to use it on a scripture. Here I see that in this translated scripture of greek you call as original manuscript which itself is a translation of “who knows what”, every single sentence has been played by the writers adding their own views and you say they are possessed with holy spirit.

Father, I love Ibrahim. I will not allow him to die. Yes, Your words are TRUE and JUST. You are embodiment of justice. But Your justice should JUSTIFY Ibrahim Rasheed. Because I died instead of Him. He believes in Me and he is my. He belongs to me. He is my property and I will never allow him to die. Yes, Jesus justified Ibrahim. Why? Because He loves Ibrahim and needs him. Why did the Father allow to set Ibrahim free guiltless? Because this Advocate WAS PUNISHED by DEATH. He suffered on the place of Ibrahim. That’s why Ibrahim will be called the son of God, Inheritance of God.
Justice justified Ibrahim of all his past and future sins. Ruh Al Quds will be given to him as a seal to the covenant with the eternal God through FAITH…active and live FAITH in the One who loves and justifies by His own Power.

 

There are many more reasons why Jesus is God than you listed….
But i even appreciate that you think about it!
Yes, you do not believe in what God claimes but disbelief that He is God will not make you FREE of your sins!
How to be FREE?
1.It is important to FIND the TRUE God by comparing suras I gave you about crimes of allah and muhammad in Islam with the infinite love toward you in Jesus.
2. It is important to ask this God to forgive all your sins in sincere repentance when you will TURN from your sins to God and stop committing them.
It will be salvation for you. It will make you holy and accepted by God.
This is what you need and not fight trying to prove what you cannt prove.

Why? because God never was in Islam according to the Holy Scripture which existed BEFORE Islam!!!
But may be some of the muslims scholars such as Moayid will FIND this God because He/they is LOOKING for Him in his heart and Scripture!
Moayid KNOWS Islam and his knowledge allows him to LOOK at Islam and God.
If he will close eyes to hundreds of suras of Quran and hadith where we clearly see crimes of Muhammad, his followers and allah, then KNOWING the triuth, he will be left ALONE
on this earth and he will NEVER FINISH his journey in the Kingdom of heaven.
But why?
Because the Door to the Kingdom of Heaven is ‘Isa/Jesus.

why should “God” let all these efforts be in vain ? he’s a “just” God, right ?

all these “my God is better than your God” competitions are absurd

I told you before that the Kingdom of Heaven is the prepared place for the prepared and chosen people. Listen to me Ratzi you are CHOSEN. Now, it is your choice to choose a cow or God. That’s why choose and transform your life by His Words. Be transformed into His glorious image and TRANSFORM your nation! There is no time left to we watcher. You need to BRING GLORY to YOUR Father. How? By your HOLY life and sincere commitment of your heart.

 

 

Re: Idol Worship in Islam

Brothers,
Let’s consider today again what is idol worship and where is this idol worship in our life. This is what God is saying:
I want your complete love.
I don’t want you to bow down before other gods.
Brothers, there are so many religions but who is this ONE RIGHT and TRUE God we should worship.
He is Allah of our father Ibrahim/ Abraham and God of the prophet Moses.
Let’s read today what happened with Moses and the people of God called Israelites in the desert after they PASSED OVER from slavery in Egypt.
One day Moses went up on Mount Sinai where he should receive 10 commandments about which we have read with you for a couple of days. While Moses went back to the camp, Aaron- his brother- was in charge. He was not strong leader like Moses. So, people came to him and said:
Where is this Moses who led us out of Egypt. We do not know where he has gone. And we do not know if he is gonna came back to us. What we are supposed to do?
So, all people brought gold to Aaron and he mold a golden calf in the image of cow basically. He put it in front of them and said: this is the God that led you out of Egypt. And the people were bowing down before the golden calf, thinking that they worshiped the TRUE God. They wanted to worship God through the golden calf and they did it.
God said on the Mount Sinai to Moses that he needed to come back to camp. So, what Moses saw when he came back?
A big party. Israelites danced before a golden calf.
Moses demanded on explanation from Aaron. And he offered lamest excuse.
What was position of God toward these people and their deeds?
God loved people but they did NOT worship this God anymore.
God is AGAINST any FALSE concept of what God is.
So, what was punishment for this people?
Moses made them to eat and drink the golden powder of this idol they made.
People knew that God of their father Ibrahim brought them out of Egypt but they started to worship the false god.
Why did I say: FALSE? Because a COW never was our God!
If the image is false then the character of people will be false too and all who worship it become like this image.
Idol worship is madness and ABOMINATION for our God.
Now here is a question addressed to you Muslims:
We need to find the TRUE God by looking at Him through His prophecies.
Why?
Because your ‘golden god’ may contradict to the HOLY Words of our God said through many prophecies. These prophecies were uttered by God BEFORE the existence of Islam!
You can continue worshiping your golden cow. But WHY? Why do you want to enter into the kingdom of such cows after your death!?
Why you YOURSELF close the door leading to the Kingdom of Heaven?!
Throw out idols from your heart!
Spit out words of idols from your mouth.
Make your heart and your house cleansed of your iniquities.
And commit your heart to the ONE TRUE God who gave us 10 commandments. “One of them is YOU SHALL NOT KILL”!!!!!
Let’s read one of these prophecies Isaiah 9:6-7:

6 For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace
There will beno end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

ﺃﺷﻌﻴﺎء 9

6 لأَنَّهُ يُوْلَدُ لَنَا وَلَدٌ وَيُعْطَى لَنَا ابْنٌ يَحْمِلُ الرِّيَاسَةَ عَلَى كَتِفِهِ، وَيُدْعَى اسْمُهُ عَجِيباً، مُشِيراً، إِلَهاً قَدِيراً، أَباً أَبَدِيّاً، رَئِيسَ السَّلاَمِ.
7 وَلاَ تَكُونُ نِهَايَةٌ لِنُمُوِّ رِيَاسَتِهِ وَلِلسَّلاَمِ اللَّذَيْنِ يَسُودَانِ عَرْشَ دَاوُدَ وَمَمْلَكَتَهُ، لِيُثَبِّتَهَا وَيَعْضُدَهَا بِالْحَقِّ وَالْبِرِّ، مِنَ الآنَ وَإِلَى الأَبَدِ. إِنَّ غَيْرَةَ الرَّبِّ الْقَدِيرِ تُتَمِّمُ هَذَا.

Here in this prophecy said by God we can see the humanity of Messiah. He is a Son, given by God and being born into the human world, especially the Jewish world. His names should be as follows:

Wonderful Counselor
Mighty God (this name NEVER was used of a mere man!!!)
Eternal Father (literally: Father of eternity meaning that He is the Source of eternal life. Clearly this is to be no mere man!)
Prince of Peace

So, God promised to give us a Being who is both man and God. He is the Messiah of Israel. Messiah should be a King, both God and Man. And He should appear prior to 70 A.D. because of the requirements of Davidic Covenant and the destruction of the Temple.
But why should you believe in this King?
Because this King created you and going to judge you.
Be ready.
Judge yourself already now and TURN to Him who died instead of YOU to give you eternal LIFE!
Why should your name NEVER be written by God in the Book of Life?!
All those people will be saved from the Judgment Day and they will survive this Judgment of God who will be found written in the Book of Life through their TRUE Worship of the TRUE God who created the universe. His name is God Jesus!

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace
.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Isaiah 9:6-7

Brothers, look what God said through prophet Isaiah:

He- Messiah- should be born into the human world

The word ‘unto us a son is given’ emphasizes a unique gift of God.

This Son is given four names- Wonderful (Pele-Yoeitz in Hebrew), Mighty God (El-Gibbor), Eternal Father (Avi-Ad), Prince of Peace (Sar-Shalom)

These names are all used elsewhere in the Book of prophet Isaiah and in each case they are used of God, never of man.

So, we can see that Messiah would be a King. He would be both God and Man. And ALL who reject Him as God are rejecting His Father. So, that’s why you ALL Muslims will enter the hell fire and ALL of you who will BELIEVE in the WORDS of God foretold in over 300 such prophecies will be called sons of God, God’s inheritance who are justified by God through FAITH in His Son.

Let’s listen to the words of God and LIVE eternally by OBEYING God and REJECTING the idols and “cow worship” leading you to the hell fire. Supreme God is Your FREEDOM.

Supreme God,

Your Light is brighter than the sun,

Your purity whiter than mountain snow,

You are present wherever I go.

All people of wisdom praise you.

So I too put faith in all your words, knowing that everything you teach is true.

Neither the angels in heaven nor the demons in hell

can know the perfection of your wisdom,

for it is beyond all understanding.

Only your Spirit knows You; only You can know Your true self.

You are the source of all being,

the Power of all power, the Ruler of all creatures.

So you alone understand what You are.

In Your mercy reveal to me all that I need to know,

in order to find peace and joy.

Tell me the truths that are necessary for the world in which I live.

Show me how I can meditate upon You, learning from You the wisdom that I need.

I am never tired of hearing You, because Your words bring life.

My Light, my God Jesus, please save my brothers Arabs and Muslims. Please separate them from this world to live in Your world… in Your eternal presence and Light.

Ruh Al Qudus, please descent from heaven like rain into their hearts. God please let the desert of their lives flourish due to the living water of Your Holy Spirit.

Lord how You are perfect, let please my brothers be the perfect sons of God and transform them into Your glorious image..in image of Your Son Jesus to live for YOU and for people. Amen.

 

 

 

Re: Bible’s prophecies

Brothers, WHY do we believe that Jesus is God and Isa Al Massih promissed by God?
Because His life and death were fulfilment of many prophecies of God foretold through God’s prophets.

Let’s read summary again:

Check them all out for yourself!

Isa Al Massih should:

  • Would be rejected by Jews (Psalm 118:22; I Peter 2:7)

Do we have any reason NOT to trust God and His words?
Yes, we can do it then we will be unbelievers. That’s why we will FAIL to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.
But why?

Because the Kingdom of Heaven is offered to you Muslims!

Come to Ibn Allah and TAKE it. Enter there through your FAITH.

But you reject God by rejecting His Son/Ibn Allah.

HOW can you enter into the Kingdom of Heaven if you REJECT to enter there!!!!???

Make a step of FAITH now and LIVE eternally with your LOVING Father and His Son and the Holy Spirit in YOUR Kingdom of Heaven!

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.

John 3:16-17

Re: Bible’s prophecies of Allah for Muslims and Arabs

Brothers, let’s read the prophecies of Allah about Isa Ibn Allah and how they were fulfilled:

 

 

 

Jesus Christ would bind up the brokenhearted, proclaim liberty to the captives and announce the acceptable year of the Lord:

Isaiah 61:1-2 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, 2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,
Luke 4:18-21 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, 19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” 20 Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him, 21 and he began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

Jesus Christ would heal people of disease and sickness:

Isaiah 53:4 Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.
Isaiah 35:5-6 Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped. 6 Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy. Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert.
Isaiah 42:18 “Hear, you deaf; look, you blind, and see!
Matthew 8:16-17 When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick. 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: “He took up our infirmities and carried our diseases.”
Matthew 11:5 The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor.

Jesus Christ would teach in parables:

Isaiah 6:9-10 He said, “Go and tell this people: “‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’ 10 Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.”
Psalms 78:2 I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter hidden things, things from of old–
Matthew 13:11-15 He replied, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. 12 Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. 13 This is why I speak to them in parables: “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. 14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. 15 For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’
Matthew 13:34-35 Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. 35 So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world.”

Jesus Christ would make a triumphal entry into Jerusalem on a donkey:

Isaiah 62:11 The LORD has made proclamation to the ends of the earth: “Say to the Daughter of Zion, ‘See, your Savior comes! See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him.'”
Zechariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
Psalms 118:26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD. From the house of the LORD we bless you.
Matthew 21:1-9 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, tell him that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.” 4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: 5 “Say to the Daughter of Zion, ‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.'” 6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt, placed their cloaks on them, and Jesus sat on them. 8 A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest!”
Mark 11:1-11 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 3 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ tell him, ‘The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.'” 4 They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it, 5 some people standing there asked, “What are you doing, untying that colt?” 6 They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go. 7 When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it. 8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. 9 Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, “Hosanna! ” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” 10 “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!” “Hosanna in the highest!” 11 Jesus entered Jerusalem and went to the temple. He looked around at everything, but since it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the Twelve.
John 12:12-16 The next day the great crowd that had come for the Feast heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. 13 They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna! ” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the King of Israel!” 14 Jesus found a young donkey and sat upon it, as it is written, 15 “Do not be afraid, O Daughter of Zion; see, your king is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt.” 16 At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that they had done these things to him.

Sister, salvation is very simple: through FAITH in God Jesus, REPENTANCE and CONFESSION of your sins.
You should believe in God Jesus and LIVE according to His words, WALKING in FAITH what means implementing all His words and commandments. This life means REPENTANCE of your sins when you TURN from sins to GOD, when you ABANDON your sins and make a STEP of FAITH toward God. God will purify you like gold and after repentance He promised to forget and forgive your sins. You will be FREE of your sins and the Holy Spirit will give you a TESTIMONY in your heart that you are forgiven and adopted by God to be His Inheritance. If you will BE SURE in this FORGIVENESS you are FORGIVEN by God and this assurance will be granted to you by God Himself. God does not want to make this salvation complicated. It is VERY simple. But it is NOT a miracle. We should NOT wait when we will become holy by any miracle but we SHOULD become HOLY by TURNING from sins to God Jesus. This is the TRUE repentance evident in your changed and holy life. If you will not abandon your sin, you are sinner. NOT a CHRISTIAN! If you didn’t turn from your sins, you are sinner. You are not Christian but a criminal against God and people. That’s why to BE SAVED: BELIEVE, REPENT, CONFESS your sins, ABANDON them and LIVE a holy life. The way of sin is not for you! But the Kingdom of your Father is FOR YOU!

Bahira

Christians Threatened by Opposition as Sikkim Prepares

for Dalai Lama Visit

December 21, 2010

Many Buddhists live in Sikkim, India. Their worldwide leader is visiting the state this week, and GFA-supported missionaries are asking for prayer during this critical juncture.

The pastor of a Gospel for Asia-related church in Sikkim, India, is asking for prayer today as Buddhists in his area are hosting a visit by the Dalai Lama. The Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader is visiting this Himalayan state to participate in a conference.

Pastor Nandan Reddiar said that, while his congregation is growing, they are facing strong opposition from other religions in the area, and opponents are taking advantage of the Lama’s visit to increase the pressure.

“Some in this society are trying to convert our believers to their faith, either by threats of violence or by enticing them with worldly things,” pastor Nandan said.

GFA President K.P. Yohannan said it is ironic that “among those opposing the Christians are followers of the Dalai Lama, who preaches a message of non-violence and has been awarded the Nobel Peace prize.”

Invited by State
The Sikkim state government invited the Buddhist leader to come and lead a conference on “Cognitive Sciences and Eastern Contemplative Traditions.” The seminar, leaders say, is expected to lay the foundation for the state’s efforts to introduce morality and ethics into its school and college curricula.

The Dalai Lama will also visit the state’s Tibetan community, conduct a “teaching” in a sports stadium and bless a massive statute of Buddha now under construction. He will spend time at several Buddhist monasteries across Sikkim, including one in the city where Pastor Nandan serves. In fact, the government is building a special retreat center for the Dalai Lama at that location.

Prayer Needed
Pastor Nandan is asking Christians around the world to pray for the believers in his city during this time.

“Please pray that this visit will not cause problems for our church,” he asked, “and please pray that our people will have strong faith to face and overcome any problems.”

Dr. Yohannan also called for prayer for the Sikkim believers.

“Pray for Pastor Nandan and his congregation as they witness to the love of Christ among the people of Sikkim,” he said. “They have a strong desire to share the Good News among those who have not heard, so let us pray that the Lord will fulfill that desire of their hearts.”

A Lama Chooses Life

When a Gospel for Asia women’s team reached Panchu’s home for the first time, he was touched that they made the five-hour uphill climb to visit him.

“We told him that we had come to see how they were doing,” remembers team leader Manmaya. “They were very happy to know that we took all the trouble of walking up to see them.”

The women’s visit that day was the start of a beautiful friendship with Panchu and his family, and the team members began to regularly make the trek up the mountains to his home.

“We started sharing the Gospel with him,” says Manmaya, “and he became very friendly to all of us.”

But while he welcomed their visits, he could not become a Christian, Panchu told them, for his family had been Buddhist for generations.

‘A Beggar and a Robber’

Panchu belongs to the Lepcha tribe, a people group whose physical remoteness in the Himalayan foothills of Sikkim, India, mirrors its deep spiritual isolation. Strong devotees to Buddhism yet also practicing a form of animism, the Lepcha do not allow other religions to interfere with their lives for fear of misfortune or making the spirits angry.

At his parents’ urging, Panchu began serving in the local Buddhist monastery at age 16. He worked his way up to become a lama, or religious teacher, which elevated him to a more respected and “enlightened” status in his religion. But as time went on, Panchu grew increasingly disillusioned with his beliefs.

When visiting the home of someone who suffered from sickness, he would listen as a more experienced lama read from the sacred texts and chanted mantras for the appeasement of the spirit gods. Often one visit would last several days. Panchu knew it only took four to five hours to recite the mantras, but the longer the senior lama stayed, the more food and rice beer he received from his unsuspecting hosts, many of whom were poor with little or no education. At the end of the visit, this lama would also receive some money and a plate of rice. If he didn’t feel the sum of money was enough, he would start to grumble.

“It used to be quite embarrassing,” Panchu remembers, adding, “Seeing all this, I was so discouraged that I wanted to quit. It seemed to me that to be a lama is to live the life of a beggar as well as a robber.”

Due to his many responsibilities in the monastery and the heavy influence of Buddhism in his village, Panchu found himself trapped between intense community pressure and a highly unfulfilling belief system—with no apparent way of escape.

“I used to think, ‘Buddhism has never given me peace of mind,’ ” Panchu recalls. “There was nothing that really benefited my soul, no matter what I did or gave.”

Removing the Barriers

Hearing that the GFA women’s team had started a residential school in their village, Panchu enrolled his daughter Sarika and his youngest son, Chudan. Both children enjoyed the love and nurture they received there, as well as the Bible stories and songs that were taught them.

But Panchu’s heart was troubled by his daughter Sarika’s strange illness, which caused her to fall unconscious and water to constantly drip from her head. He tried to use his powers as a lama but was unable to cure her. Although he sought the help of other lamas and even witch doctors, his daughter’s condition remained the same.

Seeing Sarika’s condition and discerning that she was afflicted by demonic forces, the women’s team prayed earnestly and with compassion for her healing and deliverance-and the Lord completely restored her. Sarika responded with heartfelt faith in Jesus. Chudan also received Christ.

Panchu could not deny that his daughter’s healing must be a miracle, but still he did not choose to trust in Christ. The incident did help him see how deeply the women’s team cared for his family.

Meanwhile, Panchu was also suffering from his own mysterious illness: His legs hurt badly, his knees swelled up, he suffered from asthma and his skin was turning darker. Doctors could find no medical explanation for his condition. He tried the rituals, ceremonies and magic arts he had learned, but all his efforts were in vain. Finally, he consulted a senior lama in hopes of a favorable outcome, but instead the man prophesied that Panchu would die within three months. The prognosis disturbed Panchu and only added to his growing disillusionment with the Buddhist faith.

“From now on, I will call the Christians and ask them to pray for me,” Panchu remembers angrily telling the senior lama.

Manmaya and the women’s team continued to visit frequently and pray earnestly for Panchu’s healing and salvation. They told him their God had the power to heal, and their words gave him reason to hope.

The team members also made arrangements for a GFA mobile team to visit Panchu’s village and show a film on the life of Christ. The love of Jesus he saw on the screen and in the lives of these young women was softening his heart and removing the barriers to faith in Christ.

Then one day, Panchu discovered to his joy that the Lord had healed him completely, and within the next few days, both Panchu and his wife put their trust in Christ.

Following a God Who Loves

Today Panchu’s life has been radically transformed. He once drank heavily and would sometimes verbally and physically abuse his family members. Christ has set him free from these destructive habits. All six of his children have given their lives to Jesus as well. Panchu has two brothers who are still Buddhist lamas. His heart yearns for them to find freedom and salvation in Christ.

A fellowship group now meets regularly in Panchu’s home to worship and study God’s Word—a light to the community and a source of great encouragement for new believers. Panchu would like to donate some of his property for a church building, and he has a vibrant passion to see his village reached for Christ.

Panchu is amazed at how the Lord has changed his life and met his deepest needs.

“My family deities that I worshipped didn’t heal me; rather, they were angry with me. So instead of dying, I chose to live by following a God who loves and gives healing to me.”

And Panchu is deeply grateful for the team of young women whom the Lord used to start it all—who faithfully climbed the mountain path to his village and pointed him and his family to eternal life.

Prayers

Christmas Prayer

Heavenly Father, Please forgive me for being so grumpy as I trudge through the never-ending tasks set before me this holiday season. My to-do list seems to keep growing with shopping, church services, trimming the tree, selling my old car, and family gatherings—and I’m running short of time! Restore the joy of Christmas to my heart and help me to relax each day, and make time for You–my one true Source of Joy. Amen.

My Father Comfort for the Mothers

My Lord of Lords, and King of Kings,
I come to you, asking for the Mothers ,that have lost a child,It is especially hard this time of year,
I know I lost my oldest son in 2006 and it does not get easier, I miss him so much, we would have a talk about you my Father every day,
He was a Loving son and friend to so many, a light to others and had shown a lot of his friends you,
He was in a Gospel group he was lead Guitar,He had a heart of Gold,
I am down, and the shadow is over my head now, but My Precious Father, i do know you will never leave my side,
You have brought me thru storms, so bad they rocked my ship, but you was there to shield me from harm, and brought me thru to see the sun,
Father, i have been in the lowest valleys, and you hold my hand as i climb to the to,p and oh what a beautiful sight it is when i get back to the top again,
Father, please comfort all the hearts of Mothers, that have lost a child or mate, shield them from hurt, and let them have peace and joy thru the holidays,
all this i ask
IN JESUS NAME
AMEN AND AMEN

me

Dear Lord Jesus,
I write this to you as if I was sending it directly to your kingdom.
Jesus, my holy Father, My King of Kings,You are my savior, I know You have carried me through all my choices in life. You were there even when I never knew it.
Your love never changes, this I know. Your dedication never fails us, that know You. But the trials and tribulations that You allow for me, and for all, sometimes are unbearable.
You suffered on the cross, and you suffered greatly while here on earth, and my suffering made me turn toward you.
I feel that God allowed Jesus to walk this earth so that we would identify. And to those with ears may hear and to those with eyes may see.
I ask for knowledge so that I will have wisdom.
I ask for knowledge for all, so that others may have wisdom. So that we might see things in a different light, Your light.
Please God show me, show us, Your “will.” Let us all walk toward you and not away. Be our Leader.
I cry to see such calamity in this world. And to know that such calamities are surrounding us all.
But I know that You allow this because You want us to turn toward You, for when we are down and out, what is the first thing said? And to whom?
God please bless all those in this world, and have mercy on us all.
Mark7:34 Then looking up to Heaven, He sighed, and said to him, Ephphatha”, that is, “be opened.”
Thank you Lord,I pray always in Jesus name. Amen.

I won’t be alone and lonely during Christmas – Thanks for praying

Dear Heavenly Father,

I will be away from my family this Christmas. Please keep me from being alone and lonely during this time.

I am praying for a meaningful and sacred Christmas. My Christmas time is in your hand, Father Lord.

In Jesus Holy Name,
Amen!

Forgiving others

God expects us to forgive others just as he has forgiven us. God, who is perfect, sacrificed his Son Jesus so that our sin penalty (death) would be paid. Because of our faith in Christ (and his sacrifice), God forgives us from our sin. If we then refuse to forgive another person for an offense, we are dishonoring the forgiveness that God gave us. God will hold us accountable for this as Jesus illustrated in the sobering parable of the unforgiving servant (Matthew 18:21-35).

Another important aspect of unforgiveness is that it is a form of pride. When we’ve been wronged by someone, we have a natural desire to see justice done. When we withhold forgiveness, we’re basically passing judgment on the person. God instructs us to trust in him for the execution of justice. The scripture says, “Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord” (Romans 12:19 NKJV). As God’s followers, we must submit our desire for justice to him and trust it in his hand.

This can be very hard to do, especially if someone has spitefully mistreated us or someone we love. Forgiving someone is not condoning what they have done, but rather, it is laying the case before God’s throne and asking him to deal with it according to his will. We have to remember that God saw the evil that was done. He knows how deeply we’ve been hurt. If we can come to the place where we’re willing to forgive the person through Christ’s love, we will be able to move forward and leave the burden of justice in his capable hands.

Are you ready to forgive? Not everyone reading this will be ready to forgive the person(s) who wronged them. It may take time to get that place of being willing to forgive. If this is your situation, I encourage you to ask God to give you the desire and ability to forgive “from the heart” as Jesus mentioned in Matthew 18:35 NIV.

Unforgiveness

Unforgiveness is something that can really hold us back from escaping the corruption of sin and living for God. Unforgiveness comes in many forms, such as bitterness, hatred, malice, holding grudges and resentment. It can actually block God’s forgiveness of our sin and provides a foothold for the devil to influence our lives. Additionally, unforgiveness can plant a “root of bitterness” in us that leads to various damaging results (e.g. ruins the fruit of the Holy Spirit, stunts spiritual growth, contributes to physical illness). Like acid can destroy the vessel that holds it, so can unforgiveness destroy us when we harbor it.

Where do we go now…

Heavenly Father;

Gratitude comes in many forms. So much in this world amazes me and I am truly blessed to see it in the various forms, thank you! Each moment I stop to look around I see more clarity in what you give, thank you!

I am in a state of constant awe as my life unfolds to be more clear. With out you I am truly lost. So much angst in a daily routine that leads to new questions of ambiguous natures. The days I pull through I know it’s you Lord, I push to never loose sight.

May I always stay connected and walk the path you created for me. May others reaching for you feel your touch as you heal them, inspire them, and show them the way.

May we graciously find our true hearts direction as many of us search for meaning in this life. I for one am calling your name, please hear my prayer.

Guide us with your steady hand to the light of your intention. I pray to thee to show us the door so motion can take forth with constant energy to a better tomorrow and a state of gratitude. Lord hear my prayer and help those who seek your guidance in their hour of need as I do.

In your name – Amen

Passion of the “Christ”

I saw Passion of the Christ on DVD yesterday for the first time; WOW! WHAT AN AWESOME GOD WE SERVE! ONLY the “perfect lamb of God” could have taken such punishment and love in spite of; I believe Mel Gibson was awarded for his work; but how about the Lord; does it occur to mankind, that this was not just a “movie” but rather a documentary of the crucifix of Christ?
As I sat in awe of Christ and the magnificent strength of Spirit, because there was no strength in the body, I can’t help but say, “HOSANNA, HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST” KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS, OUR PRECIOUS SAVIOR, THE PRINCE OF PEACE AND ALMIGHTY GOD!

I am reminded of a song by the Mississippi Mass choir, entitled, “What Shall I Render Unto the Lord” and it goes on to say, for ALL OF HIS GOODNESS!

THERE IS NO GREATER LOVE THAN A MAN TO LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS! WHAT MANNER OF MAN IS THIS?

THIS HOLY DAY SEASON, LET US TAKE CARE TO REMEMBER THE REASON FOR THE SEASON,

FOR UNTO US, A CHILD WAS BORN
FOR UNTO US, A “PERFECT LAMB WAS SLAIN, IN THAT
THE BLOOD OF THE “INNOCENT LAMB” COULD NOT WASH
AWAY OUR SIN OR EVEN PAY THE DEBT FOR US
FOR UNTO US, THE LOVE OF GOD WAS EXPRESSED WHEN
WHEN WE WERE YET SINNERS AND DESTINED FOR
ETERNAL DAMNATION
FOR UNTO US, THE AMAZING GRACE OF GOD IS SHOWN
SHOWN TOWARD US
FOR UNTO US, OUR SAVIOR WAS GIVEN, BORN IN A
MANGER FOR ALL TO KNOW, HE CAME NOT ONLY FOR
RICH BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY FOR THE POOR
FOR UNTO US, HE WAS CALLED EMANUEL, SO THAT WE
SO THAT WE MIGHT KNOW, “GOD IS WITH US BOTH
NOW AND FOREVER MORE”

THIS “CHRIST” MAS LET US REFLECT ON THE “PASSION OF CHRIST” TO COME “SOLELY” FOR THE PURPOSE OF BEING THE “PERFECT LAMB” OF GOD!

FOR UNTO US “CHRIST” WAS GIVEN AND WITHOUT HIM, THERE IS NO PURPOSE FOR “CHRIST” MAS OR ANY REASON FOR THIS “HOLY” DAY WE CALL CHRISTMAS!

REJOICE AND BLESS GOD, FOR HE IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!

GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU AS WE REJOICE AND CELEBRATE “THE PASSION OF CHRIST”

To You….. Me

God I offer myself to thee.To build with me and do with me as Thou wilt.Relieve me of the bondage of self that I may better do Thy will.Take away my difficulties that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love and Thy way of life. May I do Thy will always. Amen.

What I “Knew” What Jesus Proved

I wonder Lord Jesus if we would do our sinful things if we knew that You might walk into the room in visible form at any time.

I think because we do not see You that maybe there is a chance that we may find it easier to forget You. Let us remain in tune with the King of Kings always never ceasing. Never missing a beat–for the beat we miss might be our demise.

You spared me over and over in my life during the time I decided I was going to prove I knew what I was doing. I proved I knew nothing –but I proved “nothing” extremely well!

For Your graciousness and goodness I thank You
dear Jesus and I will do this the rest of my life!

Selah!!
