Let’s try to answer to some questions today.
Niqabigirl said: “ I DO NOT BELIEVE Jesus is God!!!!”
There is NO VERSES where JESUS said HE WAS GOD!
It is peoples understanding of scriptures and NOT the BOOK that is wrong! Jesus said He was the Messiah. God made Jesus both LORD and CHRIST.”
My brother Ahmad El Abd said:
Jesus or Eisa is just a messenger of God to the Correct the Jews and turn them into the right path Eisa in the way he was born is like Adam a word of God to exist both are without fathers Eisa has a mother Adam was made of Clay, Eisa is just a human mortal Human with a message “the bible” definitely not the same bible used now a days. God Almighty is one who created Jesus and everything else God called him the Messaiah. No he made him a prophet and a messenger unique in this world and supported him with the holy spirit. Give me a prove that you are right by having me meeting your Jesus and answer my question to you.
Brothers, we ALL- Muslims and Christians- believe that Isa is the Messiah we call Him in Arabic Isa Al Massih. But who is He? What was His Message? Was He God? How God could made Him a Lord? And where can we find God in the Holy Bible or in the Islam? Can we meet God Jesus as Ahmad said?
Yes. We can see God in His words.
But the problem is that not all people can discern what God says. Many of us are able to read the Bible prophecies but NOT all of us want to believe in them.
Actually, you do NOT want to believe in what God says!
We can spend a few years, talking to you and SHOWING you the Bible prophecies about Isa that He is God, but you do NOT want to live as He says that’s why you reject His words we show you!
The problem is that you do NOT want to conform your life to what you HEAR from God!
You prefer to adopt God to your life style which is sinful.
But God cannot be adopted.
He is the Supreme Being who CAME to us to TRANSFORM us by His power into the glorious image of His Son to PREPARE us and CHANGE us by His TRUTH with purpose to enable us to ENTER the Kingdom of Heaven.
God does not need in His Home- the Kingdom of Heaven- wicked people, liars, killers, suicide bombers, idol worshipers. Why? Because there are no idols to worship! God did not create a world for criminals! He needs HOLY, RIGHTEOUS people cleansed of our sins to PUT and PLANT us in His Kingdom to BRING Him FRUITS of Glory.
That’s why we SHOULD believe in what is written in the Bible.
Because there are the WORDS of God aimed to change and transform us to be the sons of God.
But what is the reason why we should trust biblical prophecies and words of God?
The main reason we can trust biblical prophecy is that it, like the rest of Scripture, was written by people and -literally “God-breathed”—by the Creator of the universe.
How to understand the role of biblical prophecy? You need to read it, mediate on it and apply to your life. We can allow God’s prophecies to help shape our lives, giving us direction and guidance in serving our Lord. It should be a source of strength and instruction for us.
As we all know and believe we can boldly say that Isa was a Messiah.
If you really BELIEVE that Isa is our Messiah then you should know that God clearly gives the promise of a Messiah throughout the Hebrew Scriptures! That’s why ALL Jews believe in the coming of the Messiah! They are waiting for Him and their faith Judaism is based on these messianic prophecies. The problem is they are UNABLE to discern where are these prophecies. They see how clearly God said about Isa, who is the Redeemer of the world and who accepts all our sins to make us forgiven of our sins (Isaiah 53), but Jews do not WANT to believe in them! Why? If God so clearly said that He should be killed and buried and He should bear our iniquities and sins on His holy Body?!
Because they have got used performing Jewish rituals and they do not want to change their lives. They have got used to wear the cover on their heads and they do not want to be FREE of this cover, separating them from the hostile world, which secures them a temporally isolation of what they are afraid. The same way like Muslims.
Brothers, God sent us the Messiah to SET us FREE of our sins! God said it, not me!
Look again at one of such messianic prophecy in Isaiah 53:
5 But He (Messiah) was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He opened not His mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment,
And who will declare His generation?
For He was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
9 And they made His grave with the wicked—
But with the rich at His death,
Because He had done no violence,
Nor was any deceit in His mouth.
When You make His soul an offering for sin,
He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
And the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand.
11 He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied.
By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many,
For He shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great,
And He shall divide the spoil with the strong,
Because He poured out His soul unto death,
And He was numbered with the transgressors,
And He bore the sin of many,
And made intercession for the transgressors.
So, brothers, if God said that the Messiah should be killed and should bear our iniquities to make us free of them then HOW God will divide Him a portion with the great,
And He shall divide the spoil with the strong?
God clearly said that the Messiah will be killed and will make us free of our sins and will have a WONDERFUL FUTURE.
Where will He live and divide the portion with the great?
In His Kingdom.
His Kingdom will be during His Second Coming on earth and in another world created for the believers in Him.
Bothers, there are many such messianic prophecies which were made hundreds, sometimes thousands of years before Jesus Christ was born.
But if these prophecies are written, WHY you do not believe in them?
Because you do not want.
You do not want it because of your utmost ignorance and lack of education.
Even if you try to educate yourself, you prefer to IGNORE the words of God!
You create your own god, your own rules and rituals and you put on your own cover to HIDE from the wrath of God and His Coming Judgment.
Look what my sister Linda said to my brother Kamal Ibrahim El Gadi:
Do you know why I’m not impressed by people converting to Islam? It is because I have been watching people my whole life: I can show you people also leaving Islam to convert to other religions. I can show you Protestants converting to Roman Catholicism; Catholics converting to Islam; Muslims converting to Protestantism, Jews converting to Islam, Muslims converting to Judaism, etc etc etc.
So then none of this impresses me, and it shouldn’t impress you either.
Envision them in your mind’s eye – all the religions of the world: Islam, Protestantism, Roman Catholicism, Judaism, Taoism, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc etc etc.
So then why are all the people travelling in so many different directions, including the many who are leaving Islam? Their endless wanderings reveal to us why: It is because they are a LOST people, all groping in the darkness, trying to find the truth.
Now WHY are they lost?
They are lost because they are trying to discern with their EYES what can only be seen in the SPIRIT.
Is God of flesh? No, He is of spirit.
Is the devil of flesh? No, he is of spirit.
So then how can men and women who only see with their eyes be able to discern either God OR the devil?
They can’t. So, again, they remain LOST.
You know it yourself, Kamal, that when you believed Jesus Christ and Mary appeared to you in your dream, it is because you recognized them with your EYES. But since God and the devil are of spirit, then by what means were able to recognize the spirit that spoke to you in your dream? You had no means, so then you were unable to. So now any spirit of the devil can disguise himself to you in any way it chooses, and you will believe the demons. You have proven it by believing in the same false Christ and the same false Mary that live in the Roman Catholic church.
1 Corinthians 2:14
The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
Repent, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, and the Gift of the Holy Spirit will be given unto you – Who leads men into all truth!
Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, the Life – no one comes to the Father except through Him!
Everything else is a discernment of the flesh, of the eyes and ears, through which Satan deceives every man who places in his faith in his own eyes and ears to save him!
If Satan has not deceived you through your own eyes and ears, Kamal, then I ask you again: Why have you believed the identical lies that are taught by this murdering, lying, raping church? Who you, yourself, have already condemned many times over.
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins. And you will receive the Gift of the Holy Spirit.
So, brothers, in the labyrinth of faiths and believes many people are travelling in so many different directions, including the many who are leaving Islam. Their endless wanderings reveal to us why: It is because they are a LOST people. They ALL are considered by God as unbelievers! They all are groping in the darkness, trying to find the Truth. But the Messiah said that He is the TRUTH, the WAY and the LIFE. Why all people are unable to find this TRUTH?!
Why are you among them?!
So, we clearly see that ALL who do not believe in the Messiah and words of God about the Messiah and all who are NOT Redeemed by this Messiah are sinners, and they will die in their sins. Because only ONE Man TOOK the sin of the world as we have read it above in the prophecy of God.
So, you are one of them?!
In fact, from Genesis to the last book of the Old Testament there are over 300 specific prophecies detailing the coming of this Anointed One. In addition to prophecies detailing His virgin birth, His birth in Bethlehem, His birth from the tribe of Judah, His lineage from King David, His sinless life, His atoning work for the sins of His people, etc., the death and resurrection of the Jewish Messiah was, likewise, well documented in the Hebrew prophetic scriptures long before the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ occurred in history.
Look what Jesus said:
“You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me” (John 5:39).
So, every aspect of the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah had been prophesied in the Hebrew Scriptures long before the events ever unfolded in the timeline of human history. But the purpose of His Coming was SALVATION of His people from hell and death! WHY you are not saved by Him yet?
Why do you reject the holy words of God?
Why do you reject Isa who is called the Word of God/ Kalimat-Ullah?
Why you are NOT a part of the SMALL REMNANT separated by God from the world to ENTER the Kingdom of God?
Why you are an unbeliever?
God Jesus said:
“I and the Father are one.”
Can I say that I and God is ONE?
Can I claim to be God?
Can I so boldly say such blasphemy against the nature of God?
No. I can say that God is in Me. But not that I am God!
But Jesus said it!
He claimed to be God!
He claimed to heal and resurrect people by HIS DIVINE Power which is the power of God!
That’s why He was killed. People could NOT accept and believe that He the Man was the Almighty God! Didn’t God the Father foretell us about this death in the prophecy we have studied with you in Isaiah 53? God foretold us that!
Even people tried to stone Jesus for this very reason,
“… you, a mere man, claim to be God” (John 10:33).
When Jesus stated that “I and the Father are ONE”, He was saying that He and the Father are of one nature and essence.
How is it possible?
Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, before Abraham was born, I am!”
Because He – Ibn Allah- the Son of God created all stars, planets and people, all visible and invisible worlds. Jesus is the Word of God and “the Word was God” and “the Word became flesh”
(John 1:1, 14).
A created being, which Jesus would be if He were not God, could NOT pay the infinite penalty required for sin against an infinite God. But God the Father said that this MAN will save us of our sins! He should make an intercession to help us avoid the hell fire! Only God could pay such an infinite penalty. Only God could take on the sins of the world and die, and be resurrected, proving His victory over sin and death.
Now you have a short time before the Coming of this Messiah who is Ibn Allah to JUDGE you:
REPENT, CONFESS all your sins in salat. BELIEVE in Ibn Allah and YOU will be forgiven right now! There is no time left to live in your ignorance!
There is no time left to live in your own world created by you!
You should be ready for a GREAT ESCAPE from this planet to the Kingdom of God!
You should not perish but INHERIT the Kingdom of your Father!
Do not cover your head anymore. But tear down your slavery and come out of it to the LIGHT of God. You are created to be a beautiful creature bringing the glory to your Father. You are not the one who was created to perish and disappear in your own world.
Make a step of FAITH and COME to Him who created this world for you and who suffers LONG waiting for your RETURN.
The purpose of LIFE is to FIND Him and COME to Him, bringing the GLORY of son to his loving Father.
1 John 2 (New King James Version)
1 John 2
1 My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.
The Test of Knowing Him
3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. 6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
7 Brethren, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning. 8 Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining.
9 He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. 10 He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. 11 But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
Their Spiritual State
12 I write to you, little children,
Because your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake.
13 I write to you, fathers,
Because you have known Him who is from the beginning.
I write to you, young men,
Because you have overcome the wicked one.
I write to you, little children,
Because you have known the Father.
14 I have written to you, fathers,
Because you have known Him who is from the beginning.
I have written to you, young men,
Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you,
And you have overcome the wicked one.
Do Not Love the World
15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
Deceptions of the Last Hour
18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. 21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. 23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
Let Truth Abide in You
24 Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life.
26 These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you. 27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.
The Children of God
28 And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. 29 If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him.
God Jesus said,
“I am the WAY and the TRUTH and the LIFE.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Arabs and Muslims,
be SAVED by God RIGHT NOW!
Brothers, Islam and the Bible call Jesus as Kalimat-Ullah- WORD of Allah!
Will you reject God by rejecting His SON?
Look if you will reject Son, it means you dont believe in His Father Allah. It means you are AGAINST Allah.
Islam came later after prophecies of Allah already existed that His Son Jesus will save the world from sins. So, what is Islam? ONE of religions. Look brother, there are millions religions and all they worship millions of gods which are called by God of Ibrahim as IDOLS.
Way for people worshiping idols is hell. Islam is among them. Why? Because Islam makes God of our father Ibrahim a LIAR by claiming that there is NO Son of God. Islam is closing eyes of Muslims to the words of Allah. Which man on the earth is able to BEAR INIQUITIES of the world? Sins of people? How SERVANT canJUSTIFY many people? It is impossible for a man. But only for God! We worship perfect God. He DIED instead on us. His name is the most perfect – Jesus….Isa Ibn Allah…Isa Allah…Issa Al Massih. And He is God of our father Ibrahim. Turn from sins to HIM and LIVE eternally as son of God!
Be saved right NOW
How to LIVE with God Jesus?
2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, PERFECTING HOLINESS IN THE FEAR OF GOD.
Hebrews 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may SERVE GOD ACCEPTABLY WITH REVERENCE AND GODLY FEAR

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 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.

Contradictions in Islam and Qur’an
Free Will and Predestination in Islam
This article asks the question; Can there be such a thing as “Free Will” in Islam
The discussion of Free Will and Predestination in Islam must begin with certain presumptions concerning the character of Allah. It must further be acknowledged that these presumptions are all orthodox Muslim dogma.
1. Allah is omniscient.
2. Nothing happens except by Allah’s will.
3. Allah Himself has free will.
4. Allah cannot make a mistake.
If these statements are all presumed true, then they can serve as the logical starting points for determining their consistency with the concept of a “test for salvation.”
A. Because nothing happens except by Allah’s will, all human beings are created only according to Allah’s will.
B. Because Allah is omniscient, Allah knows the eventual fate of every person even before the moment of their creation.
C. Because Allah has free will, He has the free will to create or not create any human being He chooses.
D. Therefore, at the moments of creation, Allah is choosing to create some people that he already knows will be saved, and others that he already knows will be condemned to hell.
E. Therefore, since the results of every lifetime are already known even prior to creation, the “test” for salvation is already complete even before the created individual is born.
Q.E.D. Life on earth cannot be a test for salvation. The test is already complete before life on earth takes place.
F. If a human being were capable of doing anything to change his fate from the one Allah already determined, then Allah would have made a mistake.
G. Since Allah cannot make a mistake, a human being cannot do anything to change his fate from the one Allah already determined.
Q.E.D. Human beings cannot have free will.
Now, not only is this a logical conclusion based on the concept of Allah himself, but it also a position that is formally expressed in several Sahih ahadith. At least four times in Sahih Bukhari (Sahih Bukhari 4:54:430, Sahih Bukhari 4:55:549, Sahih Bukhari 8:77:593, Sahih Bukhari 9:93:546) and once in Sahih Muslim (Sahih Muslim 33:6390), we find versions of the following hadith:
Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Mus’ud: Allah’s Apostle, the true and truly inspired said, “(The matter of the Creation of) a human being is put together in the womb of the mother in forty days, and then he becomes a clot of thick blood for a similar period, and then a piece of flesh for a similar period. Then Allah sends an angel who is ordered to write four things. He is ordered to write down his (i.e. the new creature’s) deeds, his livelihood, his (date of) death, and whether he will be blessed or wretched (in religion). Then the soul is breathed into him. So, a man amongst you may do (good deeds till there is only a cubit between him and Paradise and then what has been written for him decides his behavior and he starts doing (evil) deeds characteristic of the people of the (Hell) Fire. And similarly a man amongst you may do (evil) deeds till there is only a cubit between him and the (Hell) Fire, and then what has been written for him decides his behavior, and he starts doing deeds characteristic of the people of Paradise.”
Do we find any similar indications in the Qur’an itself to indicate that “free will” might not exist? Actually yes. A number of ayaat are quite explicit that the choice of being saved or condemned belongs not to the human, but to Allah alone.
Yusuf Ali: If it had been thy Lord’s will, they would all have believed,- all who are on earth! wilt thou then compel mankind, against their will, to believe! No soul can believe, except by the will of Allah, and He will place doubt (or obscurity) on those who will not understand.
Pickthal: And if thy Lord willed, all who are in the earth would have believed together. Wouldst thou (Muhammad) compel men until they are believers? It is not for any soul to believe save by the permission of Allah. He hath set uncleanness upon those who have no sense.
Shakir: And if your Lord had pleased, surely all those who are in the earth would have believed, all of them; will you then force men till they become believers? And it is not for a soul to believe except by Allah’s permission; and He casts uncleanness on those who will not understand.
Yusuf Ali: This is an admonition: Whosoever will, let him take a (straight) Path to his Lord. But ye will not, except as Allah wills; for Allah is full of Knowledge and Wisdom.
Pickthal: Lo! this is an Admonishment, that whosoever will may choose a way unto his Lord. Yet ye will not, unless Allah willeth. Lo! Allah is Knower, Wise.
Shakir: Surely this is a reminder, so whoever pleases takes to his Lord a way. And you do not please except that Allah please, surely Allah is Knowing, Wise;
There are several others that less directly support this understanding:
For example Al-Qur’an 37:96 tells us that even our own actions, accomplishments and “handwork” are not really ours, but are determined by Allah instead:
Yusuf Ali: “But Allah has created you and your handwork!”
Pickthal: When Allah hath created you and what ye make?
Shakir: And Allah has created you and what you make.
And Al-Qur’an 17:13 implies that the very actions for which we will be judged on judgment day are fated ahead of time, rather than the results of a life on earth that preceded by free will:
Yusuf Ali: Every man’s fate We have fastened on his own neck: On the Day of Judgment We shall bring out for him a scroll, which he will see spread open.
Pickthal: And every man’s augury have We fastened to his own neck, and We shall bring forth for him on the Day of Resurrection a book which he will find wide open.
Shakir: And We have made every man’s actions to cling to his neck, and We will bring forth to him on the resurrection day a book which he will find wide open:
Note in particular Yusuf Ali’s translation where the word “fate” is explicitly used, and Pickthal’s use of the word “augury.” An augury is, of course, a predictive sign of what is yet to come in the future.
So in fact, it appears that the Qur’an and the hadith are in complete agreement that there is no free will when it comes to salvation or damnation. These decisions are made ahead of time by Allah and assigned to humanity. The implications of this are enormous.
Just scratching the surface we must conclude that, according to Islamic beliefs:
- Life on earth is not a test for salvation. For what is there to test if the results are known ahead of time and there is nothing we can do to change them?
- Qiyamah, the Islamic Day of Judgment, is a farce. For we are not being judged based on our behaviors, but on Allah’s previous decision.
- People are not led to Islam because it is superior message or religion, but because Allah decided that they would become Muslims whether they wanted to or not.
- Since the vast majority of human beings who have ever lived, and who are living today are not Muslim, Allah must have created the vast majority of human beings for the express purpose of condemning them to Jahannam. Therefore the primary purpose of creation must be hell and suffering, not paradise and salvation.
Questions and Answers
Conversation with Linda:
Re: Catholic Church- deception?
Through lies and temptation the devil deceives all the peof the world. So then see it for yourself, what the devil is promising to your very own people.
You, Kamal, have already condemned this church for her many sins committed against Almighty God. But now tell me, when the devil comes to offer your people what they cherish most, will you continue to stand in condemnation of him? Or will you give up your soul for all eternity, in order to gain what your people have so desired in their flesh?
So then the Catholic Christ and the Catholic Mary speak to you in your dreams, telling you to condemn those who come to you preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And you can see for yourself how your leaders have aligned themselves with the ruler of Rome, the Catholic pope, by their desire to gain what they have craved in the flesh.
Tell me, Kamal, who else but the true and living God could have revealed such things to mere men – proving that God knew the end of from the beginning. And since God revealed these things to us through Jesus Christ, then Who is Christ, but the Son of God?
“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
May 13th, 2009 – “Pope calls for a sovereign Palestinian homeland.”
Pope in 1974 – “The Palestinians are the people of the Holy Land.”
March 22nd, 2000 – “Pope calls for Palestinian homeland.”
This is what I’m trying to teach you, which only Jesus Christ was able to teach me:
We are commanded by Jesus Christ to test the spirits, to know whether the spirits are of God, or of the devil.
Whether it be a dream that’s given to you, or a dream that’s given to me, I test them both by the Word of God.
You, on the other hand, you do not test either dream, but instead, you simply believe what appeals to you most. This is a discernment of the flesh, which can never discern the things of the Spirit. Indeed, it is by their flesh that men are led into every kind of sin, believing every lie that their flesh speaks to them. So then the devil, who sees this foolishness in men, he knows how to turn their foolishness into his gain – by the desires of their flesh, he is able to make them believe any lie he chooses.
This is why the man who is walking in Jesus Christ cannot be deceived, except only momentarily – because this man is no longer walking according to his flesh, but in faith, according to the Holy Spirit of God. And He is the Only One Who the devil cannot deceive – God being greater than even the devil himself.
How many religions do you know, Kamal, that have perverted the god and the religion of Islam? I know of none. And yet there are thousands upon thousands of religions that have this one thing in common: They have all aimed to pervert the Word of God that has been given unto men through Jesus Christ.
When Islam and Catholicism preach the same false Christ and the same false Mary, and both religions attack the Church of Jesus Christ – are they not revealing to you, Kamal, that they are indeed aligned with each other, and that their common enemy is Christ Himself?
If I am lying, then please tell me, why do Islam and Roman Catholicism preach the same Christ and the same Mary, who are not the Christ and the Mary of the Holy Bible? And why do both Islam and Roman Catholicism express immense violence against Bible-believing Christians?
Meanwhile, the Roman Catholic pope is seen by all the world, making plans to ensure that the Palestinian people are finally given their own sovereign land.
So then the evidence is right in front of us that Islam and Roman Catholicism are in alignment with each other both religiously, and politically.
A church which you have condemned most ferociously, and which deserves to be condemned, yet your people have aligned themselves with her!
How does the devil deceive people, Kamal? Through lies and temptation. So then the devil has lied to you in your dreams, and he is now deceiving your people through the temptation of what matters to them most. A liberated, sovereign Palestinian state!
Lies and temptation.
It is good for you to doubt, Kamal, and to ask many questions. God has warned that some of His people were destroyed by their lack of knowledge. It is by their ignorance that many will be destroyed, because they chose to remain ignorant. But when it comes to the religion of your youth, I see how you ask no questions and accept everything you are taught.
If I had done as your are doing now, Kamal, and had not been willing to test the religion of my own youth by the Word of God – then I, today, would still be a Roman Catholic just as you have remained a Muslim. Both of us lost, both of us deceived, both of us convinced we were following God!
I do not ask you to blindly believe my dreams, Kamal, but I ask you to test them by the Word of God. And if by the Word of God, you should see that I am in error, then I would be most thankful to you if you would please rebuke me and correct me.
You believe the devil is powerless to disguise himself when even people are able to wear masks. So since you are not walking in the Word of God, then you have shown that the devil can appear to you wearing any disguise he chooses, and you will believe him.
Jesus Christ has no partner, no co-equal, no co-redemptrice – except that Christ that lives in the Roman Catholic church. So then the devil has revealed himself to you in your own dream, cursing Bahira for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, just as the devil has always done. And you, because you are not alive in the Word of God, have believed the devil – even unto aligning yourself with a murdering, lying, raping church, which you yourself have already condemned many times over. So then to interpret your dream even further, the devil has deceived you into condemning your own self.
It matters not whether a dream is given to you, or to me, or to anyone – it is the Word of God, rather, that reveals to men which spirit is speaking to them through their dreams: Whether the Holy Spirit of God, or the spirit of the devil. Again, you reveal how deceived you have been – when you claim that I have no way of testing your dreams by the Word of God, then you are forced to confess that it is you who has no means of testing whether the dreams I am given are of God, or the devil.
Your dream has shown you, Kamal, the danger you’re in. Again, it was not Bahira and “her like” who you saw standing in this dark, scary place – but only yourself, gripped on either side by the pagan gods of Rome. Your dream has shown it to you, the serious danger you are in.
The thought never entered my mind that you might be mad because of this dream that was given to you. Instead, I do as Christ has said we should do and I test the spirits that speak through men and women to know if they are of God, or of the devil.
Your dream is a warning to all who hear it, Kamal, but it is not Bahira who should be terrified by your dream. Was it Bahira who you saw standing in this dark, scary jungle? No, it is yourself who you saw standing in this place. And who was there with you? Was it Jesus Christ of the Holy Bible, the Savior of the Christians? No, there is only one other church in the world that teaches “The Virgin Mary” is co-equal to their Christ – that is the Roman Catholic church. They revealed themselves to you in your dreams, and because you are not walking in the Word of God, you did not understand how they were speaking. Again, it is the Roman Catholic church that has made it her mission to keep the Word of God from reaching the hands of the people, even unto murdering people for simply owning a Holy Bible. Did you not betray the spirit that speaks through you when you expressed this identical desire?
So then you think it is the god of Islam that was speaking to you in your dream?
Then you should demand of your god to explain to you why he has aligned himself with a murdering, lying, raping church.
See how the devil speaks to Kamal in his dreams.
There is only one other church where the people believe “The Virgin Mary” speaks to them in visions and dreams, and that she is equal to Jesus Christ – it is not the Christians who also believe this, but the Roman Catholic church who believe it just as the people of Islam have also been taught to believe it.
In the Holy Bible of the Christians, their Mary is not the same person as the one taught in Islam and Catholicism – the two Mary’s have different personalities, they play differerent roles. The Mary of the Christians is even heard calling Jesus Christ her Lord in their Holy Bible – not her equal.
At the same time, it is the Roman Catholic church that is guilty of having murdered millions of people during the papal crusades and inquisitions – for refusing to convert to Roman Catholicisim. You will say it is the Christians who committed these atrocities, but it has been well documented historically that it is the Roman Catholic popes who ordered the torture and murder of so many innocent people. And, again, it is the Christ of the Christians Who has forbid his people from committing such sins, at the risk of losing their Salvation for all eternity of they disobey the Word of God!
So then look at what we see happening here:
We see that there is Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Messiah of the Christians.
Then we see in both Roman Catholicism and Islam that they have their own Jesus who goes about trying to take the place of the Christ of the Christians.
We even see that in both Roman Catholicism and Islam, they have their own Mary, who also goes about trying to take the place of the Mary of the Christians.
Now the people, themselves, have ranted continously about the murders and rapes committed by this Roman Catholic church – and they should be ranting! But yet who is it that the people are aligned with in their beliefs? Are they aligned with the Christians? No.
THEY ARE PERFECTLY ALIGNED WITH THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH.
The Roman Catholic Pope, with his title of “Holy Father” – God on earth!
The Roman Catholic Pope, with his title of “Vicar of Christ” – Jesus Christ’s replacement on earth!
The Roman Catholic Pope, who has taken on himself the authority of the Holy Spirit to interpret the Word of God!
There you have it, the Catholic trinity – the Roman Catholic Pope, posing as all three – Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit!
So then who comes posing as a false Christ, as his means of waging war against the true Christ – none other than Antichrist!
So, again, I say – with what religion has the religion of Islam aligned itself? It has aligned itself with the religion and the church of Antichrist!
I had a brother who also had a vision of Jesus Christ and “The Virgin Mary”. In his vision, it was this false Christ and this false Mary who told him that his sins were forgiven. What was the result? The man joined an order of the Roman Catholic church where he dedicated all his time to the worship of the Roman Catholic “Virgin Mary”. The devil succeeded in deceiving him because the man was not walking in the Word of God, and now he has been taken even further away from finding the true Christ!
So who is it that speaks to Kamal in his dreams? Indeed, Kamal has revealed it by himself – it is the “Virgin Mary” of the Catholics, a co-equal to their false Christ, that speaks to Kamal in his dreams. Exposed, by the Holy Bible of the Christians, as the very spirit of Antichrist!
By this dream given to Kamal, we see that the devil wishes to discredit Bahira just as the devil has been trying to discredit the Word of God for centuries upon centuries! Indeed, we even see the spirit of Antichrist speaking through Kamal, when Kamal expresses his desire to physically harm Bahira and her friends. Why does he wish to harm Bahira? Is it because she is sharing recipes with him, or the current news in the media? No! He wishes to harm her for one singular reason – because Bahira has come preaching the Word of God!
Who else, in the past, has desired to murder people for walking in the Word of God and for even owning a Holy Bible?
Again, it has been historically documented – it’s the Roman Catholic church who murdered people for simply owning a Holy Bible!
So then the devil shows that he is not nearly so wise as Almighty God, when he betrays his own self in the dreams of men!
Neither are men nearly so wise as Almighty God, for even if a man tries to attack the truth by lying about his dreams, he still betrays the spirit of Antichrist that speaks through him when he preaches The Virgin Mary of the Roman Catholic papacy!
This man’s dream, then, is not a warning to you all that Bahira has been lying to you. Rather, it is a sign from the devil himself that he hates anyone who comes to you preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ – and just as he has always has, he wishes to see them destroyed! Even the devil’s spirit of murder and destruction has expressed itself through the man’s own words!
You will tell yourselves this is all foolishness. But I will show you what true foolishness is:
True foolishness is to knowingly align yourselves with a church that has clearly proven itself to be an imposter, and which you yourselves have already condemned! Though he has already condemned her, Kamal has shown by his dream that his beliefs in Islam are perfectly aligned with the beliefs of the very church he has already condemned!
So then does the man not condemn his own self? This, truly, is foolishness. Even the man’s own dream has revealed to him that he is standing in a scary place, akin to a dark jungle. And who has he trusted to save him? He has trusted in the same pagan gods as the Romans – the false Christ, and the false Mary. His own dream has betrayed him, and revealed the matter for all to see.

Thank you for political style. Unfortunatelly you did not give me a chance to show you my style in a personal correspondence. However I am thankful to my God that He gave me a chance to talk to you agian.
Brother, in Cairo I have loved to watch Islamic worship channel where guys from Sudan are worshipping islamic allah. Their music is wonderful and songs are beautiful. But what is most beautiful in their worhsip? Their hearts. I love Sudanese people. They are perfect creatures of God who are suffering because of many reasons. But the love of God to them is unchanging. So, brother, I have not been in Sudan yet. But I KNOW Sudan! I know it and its people. All what I know about Sudan is based on my FAITH or assurance in what is not seen. So, can Allah show me this place Sudan? Yes. I can see it. Am I seeing it now? No. Do I know about this place? Yes, I know only what was revealed me…even through the worship channel.
The same way we all will see God. He came to us to His earth and lived among us. He proved us His existence through miracles and fulfilled prophecies. Now He needs our faith to save us from hell. He will show us His pierced hands and we will see them. But the day of salvation is now! When we will die, it will be late. Before our death, Allah gave us thousands of chances to believe in Ibn Allah and be forgiven of all our sins through our FAITH in Him.
Does Sudan exist? Yes. Should we believe in it? Yes, why not. It is stupid not to believe in it.
How do we know about its existence? Though channels which reveal us about it….i.e. through revelations. Should we carefully study revelations? Yes, if we WANT to get to this destination.
The same way, God revealed Himself to us. And He expects our FAITH.
Who is this God and what did He reveals us about Him? Let’s look at it:
The Light of Christ, the darkness of sin.
I stood in the Light of Jesus Christ’s presence, and saw how His Light is a colour of white seen nowhere in this world – the brilliant colour of purity, of righteousness. After this, when I prayed to Christ to show me the sin in my own heart, He answered my prayer again – I had to look away, the blackness terrified me. I came to understand from this that all my life, I had measured sin according to sin – murder was worse than theft, theft was worse than lying, etc. And if I only thought of committing a sin, but didn’t actually follow through with it, then this was ok too. But now I finally understood that by measuring sin in this way, I had only been comparing different shades of black – and only in Christ is there true righteousness, of the purest white.
It seems obvious to me now, but yet I remember how blind I was before Jesus opened my eyes and before He opened my mind to be able to understand. When we, who are sinners, can already see that sin is dark, then how much moreso does sin appear dark in the eyes of God, Who is completely without sin? See, a liar and a hypocrite will think he is as different from a thief or a murderer as day is to night. Yet they are all sinners. In order to understand the truth about himself, the sinner musn’t try to compare himself to other sinners – instead, he must compare himself to God, Who is completely without sin.
Sadly, men and women have been using each other for thousands of years as their excuse to continue sinning – telling themselves that since their sins aren’t ‘as bad’ as the sins of others, then everything is ok. They forget that the One Who sees all is the One Who will judge them, and not their fellow sinners who will judge them. And the One Who will judge them has no sin in Him, no shade of black whatsoever. So then in His presence, when they appear before Him to be judged, even the smallest of sins will appear as the blackest of black in His righteous presence.
All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away.
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
1 John 1:5
This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light
The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.
This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
I have stood in Jesus Christ’s presence, and have seen His Light – the beauty, the power, the life, the righteousness, the authority that are alive in just His Light alone.
You must repent while there is still time. If you continue to rely on your self-righteousness to save you, then you will be shocked and terrified on that great Day of the Lord to see just how dark your sins appear in His Presence.
Your life could end at any time – any day, any hour – and then it will be too late. The time for repentance is now – the day of Salvation is today!
John 8 (New King James Version)
1 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
2 Now early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. 3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 4 they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?” 6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.
7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”
11 She said, “No one, Lord.”
And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”
12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
Jesus Defends His Self-Witness
13 The Pharisees therefore said to Him, “You bear witness of Yourself; Your witness is not true.”
14 Jesus answered and said to them, “Even if I bear witness of Myself, My witness is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going; but you do not know where I come from and where I am going. 15 You judge according to the flesh; I judge no one. 16 And yet if I do judge, My judgment is true; for I am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent Me. 17 It is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is true. 18 I am One who bears witness of Myself, and the Father who sent Me bears witness of Me.”
19 Then they said to Him, “Where is Your Father?”
Jesus answered, “You know neither Me nor My Father. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also.”
20 These words Jesus spoke in the treasury, as He taught in the temple; and no one laid hands on Him, for His hour had not yet come.
Jesus Predicts His Departure
21 Then Jesus said to them again, “I am going away, and you will seek Me, and will die in your sin. Where I go you cannot come.”
22 So the Jews said, “Will He kill Himself, because He says, ‘Where I go you cannot come’?”
23 And He said to them, “You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. 24 Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.”
25 Then they said to Him, “Who are You?”
And Jesus said to them, “Just what I have been saying to you from the beginning. 26 I have many things to say and to judge concerning you, but He who sent Me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I heard from Him.”
27 They did not understand that He spoke to them of the Father.
28 Then Jesus said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things. 29 And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him.” 30 As He spoke these words, many believed in Him.
The Truth Shall Make You Free
31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
33 They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’?”
34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. 35 And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. 36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
Abraham’s Seed and Satan’s
37 “I know that you are Abraham’s descendants, but you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you. 38 I speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have seen with your father.”
39 They answered and said to Him, “Abraham is our father.”
Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham. 40 But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this. 41 You do the deeds of your father.”
Then they said to Him, “We were not born of fornication; we have one Father—God.”
42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. 43 Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. 46 Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? 47 He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.”
Before Abraham Was, I AM
48 Then the Jews answered and said to Him, “Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?”
49 Jesus answered, “I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me. 50 And I do not seek My own glory; there is One who seeks and judges. 51 Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death.”
52 Then the Jews said to Him, “Now we know that You have a demon! Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and You say, ‘If anyone keeps My word he shall never taste death.’ 53 Are You greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? And the prophets are dead. Who do You make Yourself out to be?”
54 Jesus answered, “If I honor Myself, My honor is nothing. It is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is your God. 55 Yet you have not known Him, but I know Him. And if I say, ‘I do not know Him,’ I shall be a liar like you; but I do know Him and keep His word. 56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.”
57 Then the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”
58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”
59 Then they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
ﻳﻮﺣﻨﺎ 8 (Arabic Life Application Bible)
1 وَأَمَّا يَسُوعُ، فَذَهَبَ إِلَى جَبَلِ الزَّيْتُونِ.
2 وَعِنْدَ الْفَجْرِ عَادَ إِلَى الْهَيْكَلِ، فَاجْتَمَعَ حَوْلَهُ جُمْهُورُ الشَّعْبِ، فَجَلَسَ يُعَلِّمُهُمْ.
3 وَأَحْضَرَ إِلَيْهِ مُعَلِّمُو الشَّرِيعَةِ وَالْفَرِّ يسِيُّونَ امْرَأَةً ضُبِطَتْ تَزْنِي، وَأَوْقَفُوهَا فِي الْوَسَطِ،
4 وَقَالُوا لَهُ: «يَامُعَلِّمُ، هَذِهِ الْمَرْأَةُ ضُبِطَتْ وَهِيَ تَزْنِي.
5 وَقَدْ أَوْصَانَا مُوسَى فِي شَرِيعَتِهِ بِإِعْدَامِ أَمْثَالِهَا رَجْماً بِالْحِجَارَةِ، فَمَا قَوْلُكَ أَنْتَ؟»
6 سَأَلُوهُ ذَلِكَ لِكَيْ يُحْرِجُوهُ فَيَجِدُوا تُهْمَةً يُحَاكِمُونَهُ بِهَا. أَمَّا هُوَ فَانْحَنَى وَبَدَأَ يَكْتُبُ بِإِصْبَعِهِ عَلَى الأَرْضِ.
7 وَلكِنَّهُمْ أَلَحُّوا عَلَيْهِ بِالسُّؤَالِ، فَاعْتَدَلَ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «مَنْ كَانَ مِنْكُمْ بِلاَ خَطِيئَةٍ فَلْيَرْمِهَا أَوَّلاً بِحَجَرٍ!»
8 ثُمَّ انْحَنَى وَعَادَ يَكْتُبُ عَلَى الأَرْضِ.
9 فَلَمَّا سَمِعُوا هَذَا الْكَلاَمَ انْسَحَبُوا جَمِيعاً وَاحِداً تِلْوَ الآخَرِ، ابْتِدَاءً مِنَ الشُّيُوخِ. وَبَقِيَ يَسُوعُ وَحْدَهُ، وَالْمَرْأَةُ وَاقِفَةٌ فِي مَكَانِهَا.
10 فَاعْتَدَلَ وَقَالَ لَهَا: «أَيْنَ هُمْ أَيَّتُهَا الْمَرْأَةُ؟ أَلَمْ يَحْكُمْ عَلَيْكِ أَحَدٌ مِنْهُمْ؟»
11 أَجَابَتْ: «لاَ أَحَدَ يَاسَيِّدُ». فَقَالَ لَهَا: «وَأَنَا لاَ أَحْكُمُ عَلَيْكِ. اذْهَبِي وَلاَ تَعُودِي تُخْطِئِينَ!»
12 وَخَاطَبَهُمْ يَسُوعُ أَيْضاً فَقَالَ: «أَنَا نُورُ الْعَالَمِ. مَنْ يَتْبَعْنِي فَلاَ يَتَخَبَّطُ فِي الظَّلاَمِ بَلْ يَكُونُ لَهُ نُورُ الْحَيَاةِ».
13 فَاعْتَرَضَهُ الْفَرِّيسِيُّونَ قَائِلِينَ: «أَنْتَ الآنَ تَشْهَدُ لِنَفْسِكَ، فَشَهَادَتُكَ لاَ تَصِحُّ».
14 فَأَجَابَ: «مَعَ أَنِّي أَشْهَدُ لِنَفْسِي فَإِنَّ شَهَادَتِي صَحِيحَةٌ، لأَنَّنِي أَعْرِفُ مِنْ أَيْنَ أَتَيْتُ وَإِلَى أَيْنَ أَذْهَبُ؛ أَمَّا أَنْتُمْ فَلاَ تَعْرِفُونَ لاَ مِنْ أَيْنَ أَتَيْتُ وَلاَ إِلَى أَيْنَ أَذْهَبُ.
15 وَلِذلِكَ تَحْكُمُونَ عَلَيَّ بِحَسَبِ الْبَشَرِ، أَمَّا أَنَا فَلاَ أَحْكُمُ عَلَى أَحَدٍ،
16 مَعَ أَنَّهُ لَوْ حَكَمْتُ لَجَاءَ حُكْمِي عَادِلاً، لأَنِّي لاَ أَحْكُمُ بِمُفْرَدِي، بَلْ أَنَا وَالآبُ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَنِي.
17 وَمَكْتُوبٌ فِي شَرِيعَتِكُمْ أَنَّ شَهَادَةَ شَاهِدَيْنِ صَحِيحَةٌ:
18 فَأَنَا أَشْهَدُ لِنَفْسِي، وَيَشْهَدُ لِي الآبُ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَنِي».
19 فَسَأَلُوهُ: «أَيْنَ أَبُوكَ؟» فَأَجَابَ: «أَنْتُمْ لاَ تَعْرِفُونَنِي، وَلاَ تَعْرِفُونَ أَبِي. وَلَوْ عَرَفْتُمُونِي لَعَرَفْتُمْ أَبِي أَيْضاً».
20 قَالَ يَسُوعُ هَذَا الْكَلاَمَ فِي الْهَيْكَلِ عِنْدَ صُنْدُوقِ التَّقْدِمَاتِ. وَلَمْ يُلْقِ أَحَدٌ الْقَبْضَ عَلَيْهِ، لأَنَّ سَاعَتَهُ لَمْ تَكُنْ قَدْ حَانَتْ بَعْدُ.
21 ثُمَّ قَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: «سَوْفَ أَذْهَبُ فَتَسْعَوْنَ فِي طَلَبِي، وَلَكِنَّكُمْ لاَ تَقْدِرُونَ أَنْ تَأْتُوا إِلَى حَيْثُ أَكُونُ، بَلْ تَمُوتُونَ فِي خَطِيئَتِكُمْ».
22 فَأَخَذَ الْيَهُودُ يَتَسَاءَلُونَ: «تُرَى، مَاذَا يَعْنِي قَوْلُهُ لاَ تَقْدِرُونَ أَنْ تَأْتُوا إِلَى حَيْثُ أَكُونُ؟ هَلْ سَيَنْتَحِرُ؟»
23 فَكَانَ رَدُّهُ: «أَنْتُمْ مِنْ تَحْتُ. أَمَّا أَنَا فَمِنْ فَوْقُ. أَنْتُمْ مِنْ هَذَا الْعَالَمِ. وَأَنَا لَسْتُ مِنْهُ.
24 لِذلِكَ قُلْتُ لَكُمْ: سَتَمُوتُونَ فِي خَطَايَاكُمْ، لأَنَّكُمْ إِذَا لَمْ تُؤْمِنُوا بِأَنِّي أَنَا هُوَ، تَمُوتُونَ فِي خَطَايَاكُمْ».
25 فَسَأَلُوهُ: «مَنْ أَنْتَ؟» أَجَابَ يَسُوعُ: «قُلْتُ لَكُمْ مِنَ الْبِدَايَةِ!
26 وَعِنْدِي أَشْيَاءُ كَثِيرَةٌ أَقُولُهَا وَأَحْكُمُ بِهَا عَلَيْكُمْ. وَلَكِنَّ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَنِي هُوَ حَقٌّ، وَمَا أَقُولُهُ لِلْعَالَمِ هُوَ مَا سَمِعْتُهُ مِنْهُ».
27 وَلَمْ يَفْهَمُوا أَنَّ يَسُوعَ، بِقَوْلِهِ هَذَا، كَانَ يُشِيرُ إِلَى الآبِ.
28 لِذَلِكَ قَالَ لَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: «عِنْدَمَا تُعَلِّقُونَ ابْنَ الإِنْسَانِ تَعْرِفُونَ أَنِّي أَنَا هُوَ، وَأَنِّي لاَ أَعْمَلُ شَيْئاً مِنْ نَفْسِي، بَلْ أَقُولُ الْكَلاَمَ الَّذِي عَلَّمَنِي إِيَّاهُ أَبِي.
29 إِنَّ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَنِي هُوَ مَعِي، وَلَمْ يَتْرُكْنِي وَحْدِي، لأَنِّي دَوْماً أَعْمَلُ مَا يُرْضِيهِ».
30 وَبَيْنَمَا يَسُوعُ يَتَكَلَّمُ بِهَذَا، آمَنَ بِهِ كَثِيرُونَ.
31 فَقَالَ لِلْيَهُودِ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِهِ: «إِنْ ثَبَتُّمْ فِي كَلِمَتِي، كُنْتُمْ حَقّاً تَلاَمِيذِي.
32 وَتَعْرِفُونَ الْحَقَّ، وَالْحَقُّ يُحَرِّرُكُمْ».
33 فَرَدَّ الْيَهُودُ: «نَحْنُ أَحْفَادُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، وَلَمْ نَكُنْ قَطُّ عَبِيداً لأَحَدٍ! كَيْفَ تَقُولُ لَنَا: إِنَّكُمْ سَتَصِيرُونَ أَحْرَاراً؟»
34 أَجَابَهُمْ يَسُوعُ: «الْحَقَّ الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: إِنَّ مَنْ يَرْتَكِبُ الْخَطِيئَةَ يَكُونُ عَبْداً لَهَا.
35 وَالْعَبْدُ لاَ يَبْقَى فِي بَيْتِ سَيِّدِهِ دَائِماً؛ أَمَّا الاِبْنُ فَيَعِيشُ فِيهِ أَبَداً.
36 فَإِنْ حَرَّرَكُمْ الاِبْنُ تَصِيرُونَ بِالْحَقِّ أَحْرَاراً.
37 أَنَا أَعْرِفُ أَنَّكُمْ أَحْفَادُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ. وَلكِنَّكُمْ تَسْعَوْنَ إِلَى قَتْلِي، لأَنَّ كَلِمَتِي لاَ تَجِدُ لَهَا مَكَاناً فِي قُلُوبِكُمْ.
38 إِنِّي أَتَكَلَّمُ بِمَا رَأَيْتُهُ عِنْدَ الآبِ، وَأَنْتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ بِمَا سَمِعْتُمْ مِنْ أَبِيكُمْ».
39 فَاعْتَرَضُوهُ قَائِلِينَ: «أَبُونَا هُوَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ!» فَقَالَ لَوْ كُنْتُمْ أَوْلاَدَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ لَعَمِلْتُمْ أَعْمَالَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ.
40 وَلكِنَّكُمْ تَسْعَوْنَ إِلَى قَتْلِي وَأَنَا إِنْسَانٌ كَلَّمْتُكُمْ بِالْحَقِّ الَّذِي سَمِعْتُهُ مِنَ اللهِ. وَهَذَا لَمْ يَفْعَلْهُ إِبْرَاهِيمُ.
41 أَنْتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ أَعْمَالَ أَبِيكُمْ!» فَقَالُوا لَهُ: «نَحْنُ لَمْ نُوْلَدْ مِنْ زِنَا! لَنَا أَبٌ وَاحِدٌ هُوَ اللهُ ».
42 فَقَالَ يَسُوعُ: «لَوْ كَانَ اللهُ أَبَاكُمْ لَكُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَنِي، لأَنِّي خَرَجْتُ مِنَ اللهِ وَجِئْتُ. لَمْ آتِ مِنْ نَفْسِي، بَلْ هُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَنِي.
43 لِمَاذَا لاَ تَفْهَمُونَ كَلاَمِي؟ لأَنَّكُمْ لاَ تُطِيقُونَ سَمَاعَ كَلِمَتِي!
44 إِنَّكُمْ أَوْلاَدُ أَبِيكُمْ إِبْلِيسَ، وَتَرْغَبُونَ أَنْ تَعْمَلُوا شَهَوَاتِ أَبِيكُمْ. فَهُوَ مِنَ الْبَدْءِ كَانَ قَاتِلاً لِلنَّاسِ، وَلَمْ يَثْبُتْ فِي الْحَقِّ لأَنَّهُ خَالٍ مِنَ الْحَقِّ! وَعِنْدَمَا يَنْطِقُ بِالْكَذِبِ فَهُوَ يَنْضَحُ بِمَا فِيهِ، لأَنَّهُ كَذَّابٌ وَأَبُو الْكَذِبِ!
45 أَمَّا أَنَا فَلأَنِّي أَقُولُ الْحَقَّ، لَسْتُمْ تُصَدِّقُونَنِي.
46 مَنْ مِنْكُمْ يُثْبِتُ عَلَيَّ خَطِيئَةً؟ فَمَا دُمْتُ أَقُولُ الْحَقَّ، فَلِمَاذَا لاَ تُصَدِّقُونَنِي؟
47 مَنْ كَانَ مِنَ اللهِ حَقّاً، يَسْمَعُ كَلاَمَ اللهِ. وَلكِنَّكُمْ تَرْفُضُونَ كَلاَمَ اللهِ، لأَنَّكُمْ لَسْتُمْ مِنَ اللهِ!»
48 فَقَالَ الْيَهُودُ: «أَلَسْنَا نَقُولُ الْحَقَّ عِنْدَمَا نَقُولُ إِنَّكَ سَامِرِيٌّ وَإِنَّ فِيكَ شَيْطَاناً؟»
49 أَجَابَهُمْ: «لاَ شَيْطَانَ فِيَّ، لكِنِّي أُكْرِمُ أَبِي وَأَنْتُمْ تُهِينُونَنِي.
50 أَنَا لاَ أَطْلُبُ مَجْدَ نَفْسِي، فَهُنَاكَ مَنْ يُطَالِبُ وَيَقْضِي لِي.
51 الْحَقَّ الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: إِنَّ مَنْ يُطِيعُ كَلاَمِي لَنْ يَرَى الْمَوْتَ أَبَداً».
52 فَقَالَ الْيَهُودُ: «الآنَ تَأَكَّدَ لَنَا أَنَّ فِيكَ شَيْطَاناً. مَاتَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ وَمَاتَ الأَنْبِيَا ءُ، وَأَنْتَ تَقُولُ إِنَّ الَّذِي يُطِيعُ كَلاَمَكَ لَنْ يَذُوقَ الْمَوْتَ أَبَداً.
53 أَأَنْتَ أَعْظَمُ مِنْ أَبِينَا إِبْرَاهِيمَ الَّذِي مَاتَ؟ حَتَّى الأَنْبِيَاءُ مَاتُوا؛ فَمَنْ تَجْعَلُ نَفْسَكَ؟»
54 أَجَابَهُمْ: «إِنْ كُنْتُ أُمَجِّدُ نَفْسِي، فَلَيْسَ مَجْدِي بِشَيْءٍ. لكِنَّ أَبِي هُوَ الَّذِي يُمَجِّدُنِي. وَأَنْتُمْ تَقُولُونَ إِنَّهُ إِلَهُكُمْ،
55 مَعَ أَنَّكُمْ لاَ تَعْرِفُونَهُ. أَمَّا أَنَا فَأَعْرِفُهُ. وَلَوْ قُلْتُ لَكُمْ إِنِّي لاَ أَعْرِفُهُ لَكُنْتُ مِثْلَكُمْ كَاذِباً. لكِنِّي أَعْرِفُهُ وَأَعْمَلُ بِكَلِمَتِهِ.
56 أَبُوكُمْ إِبْرَاهِيمُ ابْتَهَجَ لِرَجَائِهِ أَنْ يَرَى يَوْمِي، فَرَآهُ وَفَرِحَ»

Most quotes given aren’t even the fulfillments of Messianic prophecy as mentioned earlier. For the sake of brevity we shall use the following example:
Matthew 2:15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son. (KJV)
Hosea 11:1 When Israel [was] a child, then I loved him, and called My son out of Egypt. (KJV)
Taking a verse that’s not even about the Messiah and saying it’s the fulfillment of Messianic prophecy isn’t proof that the New Testament is true. It’s proof that the New Testament is dishonest. To those that say that one verse quote doesn’t mean anything, they should be reminded that the New Testament is supposedly the revealed word of God. It should not have any such fallacies staring you so blatantly in the face.

The main reason we can trust biblical prophecy is that it, like the rest of Scripture, was written by people and -literally “God-breathed”—by the Creator of the universe.
How to understand the role of biblical prophecy? You need to read it, mediate on it and apply to your life.
Modes of prhopecies:
- Inspired actions
- Inspired words
- Allegorical dream revelations
- Auditory dream revelations
- Audiovisual dream revelations/human speaker
- Audiovisual dream revelations/angelic speaker
- Audiovisual dream revelations/Divine speaker
- Allegorical waking vision
- Auditory waking revelation
- Audiovisual waking revelation/human speaker
- Audiovisual waking revelation/angelic speaker
- Audiovisual waking revelation/Divine speaker (that refers implicitly to Moses)
We can allow prophecy to help shape our lives, giving us direction and guidance in serving our Lord. It should be a source of strength and instruction for us.
So, what did God tell us in this prophecy about Egypt?
Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you, for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.” And he rose and took the child and his mother by night and departed to Egypt and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet, “Out of Egypt I called my son.” (Matthew 2:13-15)
Here’s what we read in Hosea 11:1-4:
When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son. The more they were called, the more they went away; they kept sacrificing to the Baals and burning offerings to idols.Yet it was I who taught Ephraim to walk; I took them up by their arms, but they did not know that I healed them. I led them with cords of kindness, with the bands of love, and I became to them as one who eases the yoke on their jaws, and I bent down to them and fed them.
This seems to be unrelated to anything Hosea was talking about. How can Matthew say this flight to Egypt fulfilled the words of the prophet Hosea when the two events seem connected by no more than the word Egypt? How can this possibly be a fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy? Matthew says Jesus fulfilled this prophecy, so it must be that Hosea is a direct prophecy about the Messiah that He should be called from Egypt.

As per the above verse, you should not attribute false charge and destroy or harm an innocent.
Here let’s compare this false charge of EX. 21:28-32 and compare it sanity of our minds.
The way I see, these are not words of god neither these are inspired by anything holy. Please read the following unholy verse and tell me whether it is god’s word or this is written by a deranged mind, or a sane mind. What is your explanation for this?
Bahira can you give me an answer to this??
EX 21:28-32 When an ox gores a man to death, the ox must be stoned. If the ox has gored a man previously, the animal’s owner must also be put to death; in the case of the goring of a slave, the only requirement is that the owner of the ox must pay thirty shekels to the owner of the slave.
Bahira show me how you can believe this insanity with any amount of faith. Show me how this is done or justified according to your law.
Thanks for your reply in post 22.

Let’s read it so:
Justice for All
1 “You shall not circulate a false report. Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. 2 You shall not follow a crowd to do evil; nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after many to pervert justice. 3 You shall not show partiality to a poor man in his dispute.
4 “If you meet your enemy’s ox or his donkey going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him again. 5 If you see the donkey of one who hates you lying under its burden, and you would refrain from helping it, you shall surely help him with it.
6 “You shall not pervert the judgment of your poor in his dispute. 7 Keep yourself far from a false matter; do not kill the innocent and righteous. For I will not justify the wicked. 8 And you shall take no bribe, for a bribe blinds the discerning and perverts the words of the righteous.
9 “Also you shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the heart of a stranger, because you were strangers in the land of Egypt.
What does it mean? It means that: The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, Romans 1:18
God will not justify those wicked men but will, in His own time and way, sooner or later, inflict the deserved punishment on them. But God DESIRES to justify the ungodly. He does not justify ungodliness in them, or them in ungodliness, but from it, and that by the imputation of the righteousness of His Son. Why? Because He puts on us the white clothes of righteousness to make us holy as His Ibn Allah was holy. He suffered on the cross and was killed instead of us accepting our sins to make us justified and forgiven of all our sins through FAITH in Him
Brother, let’s consider now this verse:
EX 21:28-32 When an ox gores a man to death, the ox must be stoned. If the ox has gored a man previously, the animal’s owner must also be put to death; in the case of the goring of a slave, the only requirement is that the owner of the ox must pay thirty shekels to the owner of the slave.
Note: there is NO Madness in God of the Bible!
So, what God wants to tell us in this verse? He says that He loves us and will demand accounting even from animals. Many animals kill people but God’s wrath is even against such animals. Look at this:
Genesis 9:5 And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting. I will demand an accounting from every animal. And from each man, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of his fellow man..
God even establishes the law that if owner of ox is guilty of death of people then this owner will be accountable for it too. Look many people suffer, injured and die because of attack of animals and dogs. So, who will be accountable? Owners of dogs. It is justice and not madness. By the way the laws of the USA will also punish such owners of animals. So, we see in the Holy Bible in His Taurat al Shariya and let’s read the context:
Animal Control Laws
28 “If an ox gores a man or a woman to death, then the ox shall surely be stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be acquitted. 29 But if the ox tended to thrust with its horn in times past, and it has been made known to his owner, and he has not kept it confined, so that it has killed a man or a woman, the ox shall be stoned and its owner also shall be put to death. 30 If there is imposed on him a sum of money, then he shall pay to redeem his life, whatever is imposed on him. 31 Whether it has gored a son or gored a daughter, according to this judgment it shall be done to him. 32 If the ox gores a male or female servant, he shall give to their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned.
33 “And if a man opens a pit, or if a man digs a pit and does not cover it, and an ox or a donkey falls in it, 34 the owner of the pit shall make it good; he shall give money to their owner, but the dead animal shall be his.
35 “If one man’s ox hurts another’s, so that it dies, then they shall sell the live ox and divide the money from it; and the dead ox they shall also divide. 36 Or if it was known that the ox tended to thrust in time past, and its owner has not kept it confined, he shall surely pay ox for ox, and the dead animal shall be his own.

John 1 (New King James Version)
The Eternal Word
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
John’s Witness: The True Light
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
The Word Becomes Flesh
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’”
16 And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
A Voice in the Wilderness
19 Now this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?”
20 He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ.”
21 And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?”
He said, “I am not.”
“Are you the Prophet?”
And he answered, “No.”
22 Then they said to him, “Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?”
23 He said: “I am
‘ The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
“ Make straight the way of the LORD,”’
as the prophet Isaiah said.”
24 Now those who were sent were from the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him, saying, “Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?”
26 John answered them, saying, “I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know. 27 It is He who, coming after me, is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose.”
28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
The Lamb of God
29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ 31 I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water.”
32 And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. 33 I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ 34 And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.”
The First Disciples
35 Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples. 36 And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, “Behold the Lamb of God!”
37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 38 Then Jesus turned, and seeing them following, said to them, “What do you seek?”
They said to Him, “Rabbi” (which is to say, when translated, Teacher), “where are You staying?”
39 He said to them, “Come and see.” They came and saw where He was staying, and remained with Him that day (now it was about the tenth hour).
40 One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. 41 He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus.
Now when Jesus looked at him, He said, “You are Simon the son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas” (which is translated, A Stone).
Philip and Nathanael
43 The following day Jesus wanted to go to Galilee, and He found Philip and said to him, “Follow Me.” 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found Him of whom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”
46 And Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?”
Philip said to him, “Come and see.”
47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him, and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!”
48 Nathanael said to Him, “How do You know me?”
Jesus answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.”
49 Nathanael answered and said to Him, “Rabbi, You are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!”
50 Jesus answered and said to him, “Because I said to you, ‘I saw you under the fig tree,’ do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” 51 And He said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”

12 أَمَّا الَّذِينَ قَبِلُوهُ، أَيِ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِاسْمِهِ، فَقَدْ مَنَحَهُمُ الْحَقَّ فِي أَنْ يَصِيرُوا أَوْلاَدَ اللهِ،
13 وَهُمُ الَّذِينَ وُلِدُوا لَيْسَ مِنْ دَمٍ، وَلاَ مِنْ رَغْبَةِ جَسَدٍ، وَلاَ مِنْ رَغْبَةِ بَشَرٍ، بَلْ مِنَ اللهِ.
14 وَالْكَلِمَةُ صَارَ بَشَراً، وَخَيَّمَ بَيْنَنَا، وَنَحْنُ رَأَيْنَا مَجْدَهُ، مَجْدَ ابْنٍ وَحِيدٍ عِنْدَ الآبِ، وَهُوَ مُمْتَلِىءٌ بِالنِّعْمَةِ وَالْحَقِّ.
15 شَهِدَ لَهُ يُوحَنَّا فَهَتَفَ قَائِلاً: «هَذَا هُوَ الَّذِي قُلْتُ عَنْهُ: إِنَّ الآتِيَ بَعْدِي مُتَقَدِّمٌ عَلَيَّ، لأَنَّهُ كَانَ قَبْلَ أَنْ أُوْجَدَ».
16 فَمِنِ امْتِلاَئِهِ أَخَذْنَا جَمِيعُنَا وَنِلْنَا نِعْمَةً عَلَى نِعْمَةٍ،
17 لأَنَّ الشَّرِيعَةَ أُعْطِيَتْ عَلَى يَدِ مُوسَى، أَمَّا النِّعْمَةُ وَالْحَقُّ فَقَدْ تَوَاجَدَا بِيَسُوعَ الْمَسِيحِ.
18 مَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ رَأَى اللهَ قَطُّ. وَلَكِنَّ الابْنَ الْوَحِيدَ، الَّذِي فِي حِضْنِ الآبِ، هُوَ الَّذِي كَشَفَ عَنْهُ.
19 وَهَذِهِ شَهَادَةُ يُوحَنَّا حِينَ أَرْسَلَ الْيَهُودُ مِنْ أُورُشَلِيمَ بَعْضَ الْكَهَنَةِ وَاللاَّوِيِّينَ يَسْأَلُونَهُ: «مَنْ أَنْتْ؟»
20 فَاعْتَرَفَ وَلَمْ يُنْكِرْ، بَلْ أَكَّدَ قَائِلاً: «لَسْتُ أَنَا الْمَسِيحَ».
21 فَسَأَلُوهُ: «مَاذَا إِذَنْ؟ هَلْ أَنْتَ إِيلِيَّا؟» قَالَ: «لَسْتُ إِيَّاهُ!»؛ «أَوَ أَنْتَ النَّبِيُّ؟» فَأَجَابَ: «لاَ!»
22 فَقَالُوا: «فَمَنْ أَنْتَ، لِنَحْمِلَ الْجَوَابَ إِلَى الَّذِينَ أَرْسَلُونَا؟ مَاذَا تَقُولُ عَنْ نَفْسِكَ؟»
23 فَقَالَ «أَنَا صَوْتُ مُنَادٍ فِي الْبَرِّيَّةِ: اجْعَلُوا الطَّرِيقَ مُسْتَقِيمَةً أَمَامَ الرَّبِّ، كَمَا قَالَ النَّبِيُّ إِشَعْيَاءُ».
24 وَكَانَ هؤُلاَءِ مُرْسَلِينَ مِنْ قِبَلِ الْفَرِّيسِيِّينَ،
25 فَعَادُوا يَسْأَلُونَهُ: «إِنْ لَمْ تَكُنْ أَنْتَ الْمَسِيحَ، وَلاَ إِيلِيَّا، وَلاَ النَّبِيَّ، فَلِمَاذَا تُعَمِّدُ إِذَنْ؟»
26 أَجَابَ: «أَنَا أُعَمِّدُ بِالْمَاءِ! وَلكِنَّ بَيْنَكُمْ مَنْ لاَ تَعْرِفُونَهُ،
27 وَهُوَ الآتِي بَعْدِي، وَأَنَا لاَ أَسْتَحِقُّ أَنْ أَحُلَّ رِبَاطَ حِذَائِهِ».
28 هَذَا جَرَى فِي بَيْتَ عَنْيَا، فِي مَا وَرَاءَ نَهْرِ الأُرْدُنِّ، حَيْثُ كَانَ يُوحَنَّا يُعَمِّدُ.
29 وَفِي الْيَوْمِ التَّالِي رَأَى يُوحَنَّا يَسُوعَ آتِياً نَحْوَهُ، فَهَتَفَ قَائِلاً: «هَذَا هُوَ حَمَلُ اللهِ الَّذِي يُزِيلُ خَطِيئَةَ الْعَالَمِ.
30 هَذَا هُوَ الَّذِي قُلْتُ عَنْهُ إِنَّ الرَّجُلَ الآتِيَ بَعْدِي مُتَقَدِّمٌ عَلَيَّ لأَنَّهُ كَانَ قَبْلَ أَنْ أُوْجَدَ.
31 وَلَمْ أَكُنْ أَعْرِفُهُ وَلَكِنِّي جِئْتُ أُعَمِّدُ بِالْمَاءِ لِكَيْ يُعْلَنَ لإِسْرَائِيلَ».
32 ثُمَّ شَهِدَ يُوحَنَّا فَقَالَ: «رَأَيْتُ الرُّوحَ يَنْزِلُ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ بِهَيْئَةِ حَمَامَةٍ وَيَسْتَقِرُّ عَلَيْهِ.
33 وَلَمْ أَكُنْ أَعْرِفُهُ، وَلكِنَّ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَنِي لأُعَمِّدَ بِالْمَاءِ هُوَ قَالَ لِي: الَّذِي تَرَى الرُّوحَ يَنْزِلُ وَيَسْتَقِرُّ عَلَيْهِ هُوَ الَّذِي سَيُعَمِّدُ بِالرُّوحِ الْقُدُسِ.
34 فَإِذْ شَاهَدْتُ هَذَا، أَشْهَدُ أَنَّهُ هُوَ ابْنُ اللهِ».
35 وَفِي الْيَوْمِ التَّالِي كَانَ يُوحَنَّا وَاقِفاً هُنَاكَ أَيْضاً وَمَعَهُ اثْنَانِ مِنْ تَلاَمِيذِهِ،
36 فَنَظَرَ إِلَى يَسُوعَ وَهُوَ سَائِرٌ فَقَالَ: «هَذَا هُوَ حَمَلُ اللهِ».
37 فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ التِّلْمِيذَانِ كَلاَمَهُ تَبِعَا يَسُوعَ.
38 وَالْتَفَتَ يَسُوعُ فَرَآهُمَا يَتْبَعَانِهِ، فَسَأَلَهُمَا: «مَاذَا تُرِيدَانِ؟» فَقَالاَ: «رَابِّي، أَيْ يَامُعَلِّمُ، أَيْنَ تُقِيمُ؟»
39 أَجَابَهُمَا: «تَعَالَيَا وَانْظُرَ ا». فَرَافَقَاهُ وَرَأَيَا مَحَلَّ إِقَامَتِهِ، وَأَقَامَا مَعَهُ ذَلِكَ الْيَوْمَ؛ وَكَانَتِ السَّاعَةُ نَحْوَ الرَّابِعَةِ بَعْدَ الظُّهْرِ.
40 وَكَانَ أَنْدَرَاوُسُ أَخُو سِمْعَانَ بُطْرُسَ أَحَدَ هَذَيْنِ اللَّذَيْنِ تَبِعَا يَسُوعَ، بَعْدَمَا سَمِعَا كَلاَمَ يُوحَنَّا،
41 فَمَا إِنْ وَجَدَ أَخَاهُ سِمْعَانَ، حَتَّى قَالَ لَهُ: «وَجَدْنَا الْمَسِيَّا» أَيِ الْمَسِيحَ.
42 وَاقْتَادَهُ إِلَى يَسُوعَ. فَنَظَرَ يَسُوعُ مَلِيّاً إِلَى سِمْعَانَ وَقَالَ: «أَنْتَ سِمْعَانُ بْنُ يُونَا، وَلَكِنِّي سَأَدْعُوكَ: صَفَا» أَيْ صَخْراً.
43 وَفِي الْيَوْمِ التَّالِي نَوَى يَسُوعُ أَنْ يَذْهَبَ إِلَى مِنْطَقَةِ الْجَلِيلِ، فَوَجَدَ فِيلِبُّسَ، فَقَالَ لَهُ: «اتْبَعْنِي!»
44 وَكَانَ فِيلِبُّسُ مِنْ بَيْتَ صَيْدَا، بَلْدَةِ أَنْدَرَاوُسَ وَبُطْرُسَ.
45 ثُمَّ وَجَدَ فِيلِبُّسُ نَثَنَائِيلَ، فَقَالَ لَهُ: «وَجَدْنَا الَّذِي كَتَبَ عَنْهُ مُوسَى فِي الشَّرِيعَةِ، وَالأَنْبِيَاءُ فِي كُتُبِهِمْ وَهُوَ يَسُوعُ ابْنُ يُوسُفَ مِنَ النَّاصِرَةِ».
46 فَقَالَ نَثَنَائِيلُ: «وَهَلْ يَطْلُعُ مِنَ النَّاصِرَةِ شَيْءٌ صَالِحٌ؟» أَجَابَهُ فِيلِبُّسُ: «تَعَالَ وَانْظُرْ!»
47 وَرَأَى يَسُوعُ نَثَنَائِيلَ قَادِماً نَحْوَهُ فَقَالَ عَنْهُ: «هَذَا إِسْرَائِيلِيٌّ أَصِيلٌ لاَ شَكَّ فِيهِ!»
48 فَسَأَلَهُ نَثَنَائِيلُ: «وَمِنْ أَيْنَ تَعْرِفُنِي؟» فَأَجَابَهُ يَسُوعُ: «رَأَيْتُكَ تَحْتَ التِّينَةِ قَبْلَ أَنْ يَدْعُوَكَ فِيلِبُّسُ».
49 فَهَتَفَ نَثَنَائِيلُ قَائِلاً: «يَامُعَلِّمُ، أَنْتَ ابْنُ اللهِ! أَنْتَ مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ!»
50 فَقَالَ لَهُ يَسُوعُ: «هَلْ آمَنْتَ لأَنِّي قُلْتُ لَكَ إِنِّي رَأَيْتُكَ تَحْتَ التِّينَةِ؟ سَوْفَ تَرَى أَعْظَمَ مِنْ هَذَا!»
51 ثُمَّ قَالَ لَهُ: «الْحَقَّ الْحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: إِنَّكُمْ سَتَرَوْنَ السَّمَاءَ مَفْتُوحَةً، وَمَلاَئِكَةَ اللهِ يَصْعَدُونَ وَيَنْزِلُونَ عَلَى ابْنِ الإِنْسَانِ!»
Re: Bible’s prophecies

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.
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.”

The Mountain: A New Understanding of Intimacy
In Matthew Chapter 17, Matthew tells the miraculous story of the Transfiguration where Jesus revealed His glory to His disciples Peter, James, and John. The scripture tells us that Jesus’ “face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as light.” (Matthew 17:2) What an incredible sight to see! Jesus had disclosed His inner divine nature before their very eyes. But Jesus didn’t stop there. “Suddenly, Moses and Elijah appeared and began talking with Jesus.” (Matthew 17:3) Could you imagine? I can just picture Peter, James, and John as their jaws hung low, their eyes widened, and every hair on their body stood on edge. Their faith must have grown exponentially in that moment, being in the presence of Jesus Christ, in all His splendor, and two of the most God-fearing prophets in history. Peter was so elated that he exclaimed, “Lord, it’s wonderful for us to be here! If you want, I’ll make three shelters – one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” (Matthew 17:4) Peter longed to live on the mountain, the fullness of the glory of the Lord bringing inconceivable bliss to his spirit. And rightly so! We were all created to long for more, to desire to be in the permanent presence of the Lord. This world is only our temporary home. Who wouldn’t want to take up residence on the mountain with the Living God? But Peter had work to do…
I have lived the last six months of my life on the spiritual mountain, so to speak. Nearly every hour of my life during my Discipleship Training School with Youth With a Mission involved the conscious and passionate pursuit of God. On top of my own commitment to discipleship, I lived in a community with hundreds of other intensely committed people, most of whom had sacrificed nearly everything this world has to offer to be there. Being in such an anointed environment coupled with relentless pressing in to the Lord, brought my level of sensitivity to His presence to an all-time high. I heard His voice regularly, as He spoke words of direction, assurance, and love to me. I felt Him close to me, as I waited for Him in the prayer room and worshipped Him in songs of praise. I experienced new levels of freedom in Christ as He continually refined my character and reminded me of my identity. My faith soared and, much like Peter, I would have been content to live on the mountain forever. But the Lord summoned me home to Orange County, California, commissioning me to be a missionary in the one of the hardest places to share the Gospel – one’s hometown. (Matthew 13:54-58)
Though I was overjoyed to see my friends and family, I felt a tiny whisper of unrest in my spirit. I had again left the ease of the reservation and entered the tension of the battlefield. Knowing He is my only lifeline, I pressed in deeper than ever. And, as always, He was faithful.
On Thursday, as I pulled into the parking lot of Saddleback Church’s Refinery building to attend my usual college-aged service (called Crave), I said a quick prayer, asking the Lord to reveal Himself strongly through the service. I surrendered any expectations and walked in.
And the Lord blew my mind.
Our pastor, Brad Baker, delivered a powerful message proclaiming the Good News of God as our Healer. Worship was incredible, the fruits of the Spirit were evident everywhere you looked and the glory of the Lord rained down on everyone present. Towards the end of the service, Brad invited us to raise our hands if we needed healing and we, as the church community, prayed healing over each other.
And people were healed! I’m sure many more stories will pour in throughout the week, but I’ve already heard of: healed backs, mended hearts, and pain vanishing from knees.
As the band played the final worship set, college students across the room lifted their hands high and shouted to the Lord, unashamed and unrestrained from social pressures. As I saw the mere beginnings to my wildest dreams for this community take flight, I thanked the Lord over and over for His faithfulness. And He whispered this truth to my heart…
“Daughter, you never left the mountain. I am your unshakeable mountain, and I will be with you wherever you go.”
Certainly there are environments in this world where the conditions are right to experience the presence of the Lord, and those places are incredible places to be. But true intimacy, the kind of intimacy that we ought to be desperate for as believers, has nothing to do with a place, a song, a community, a message, or anything else for that matter. True intimacy comes when the believer has experienced for themselves the reality of Jesus Christ as their Savior, and pursued Him tirelessly with everything they have. True intimacy is a marriage of your spirit with His, an unbreakable bond, the only thing that lasts for eternity.
He is Jealous for Me
“I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God who will not tolerate your affection for any other Gods. ” -Exodus 20:5
Just as a husband who loves his wife desires her whole-hearted devotion and unwavering loyalty, so the Lord desires to be the exclusive lover of us, His bride. We all know and understand the 7th commandment, “Do not commit adultery.” (Deuteronomy 5:18), but how have we adulterated our marriage with God?
In the book of Hosea the Lord likens wayward Israel to a prostitute in unholy pursuit of other lovers. Israel had defiled its covenant with God by worshipping other Gods. All too often we mistakenly write off idolatry as a thing of the past, a problem irrelevant to our day. An idol is anyone or anything that dethrones God from the place of highest priority in our lives. So who or what is your mistress? Your boyfriend, career, wealth, lust, comfort, ingratitude, pride, sarcasm, etc.?
Sadly, we forget that all good things come from the Lord. We forget to worship the Creator and instead put our faith in the created. Even still, our God waits patiently for the return of His bride, the day when her eyes will no longer stray from His perfect glory. He is jealous for you, His beloved child. His love is enough for you. His grace is sufficient, His power unmatched.
Remember your marriage vows with Him. He has never forgotten.

|Who is God of our father Ibrahim? God is LOVE
Pure in Heart
I come Lord to your feet, and bow before you with thanks giving. Lord you are good and your love endures forever. I give thanks to you the God of Gods. I give thanks to you the Lord of Lords, to you alone does great wonders, miracles, who by your understanding made the heavens, who spread out the earth upon the waters, who made the great lights and the sun to govern the day. Your Love endures forevermore. I give thanks to you O Lord, the one who remembered me in my low estate and freed me from my enemies. I give thanks to the God of heaven, for your Love endures forever. Indeed, your love endures forever! (Ps. 136:1-8,23-26). I am so grateful for you love, without you I would not have known love! I lift my sisters and brothers and I ask a special blessing be given to them. One they never expected, yet longed for! Bless the staff here at CC for they too are your chosen people, and have truly brought to our world a wonderful place where we can have fellowship, friendships, and for some their mate. God bless everyone who reads our prayers. Meet the needs of those who have need. Hear the cry of your children who have lost their way, and bring them back stronger than before, that they may proclaim your name, and work. I love you Jesus, truly yours! In your Holy and beautiful name! Amen.
Prayer For The Working Woman
Lord God, Allow them to commit their work unto You, let them rejoice before You, in all the work that they have to do. Encompass these working women with Your favor, prosperity, Your
guidance, and Your wisdom. Help them to do their work with all of their might, realizing, mighty
God, that they are co-laborers with You.
Empower these good Christian women to do everything that they do unto Your glory, Father.
Enable them to maintain a good attitude toward their employers, their fellow-employees, and their job at all times. Help them, also, dear Father, to be thankful in everything they do, because they shall know this is Your will for
them. In the Name of Jesus Christ. AMEN.
Prayer for the sincere men and women here who seek their soul mates
Dear Lord God of Heaven and Earth, Ruler of the Universe and Savior and Redeemer of Mankind,
I come before Your throne on bended knee, imploring you to bring together in YOUR time and by YOUR way, which is different from Mans’s way, all those who are here seeking the one special mate for them, their true mate.
Holy Spirit, plead for us to the Father by the blood of Christ Jesus, with the groanings that we cannot utter which express the depth of our most sacred desires within the Will of God.
Lord Jesus, by your blood, I ask that those who have suffered loneliness and a desire for holy union with another soul to be united with that one special man or woman meant especially for them.
Father, I kneel humbly before You and beg for you to hasten the union of souls, that the time apart will pass swiftly, that souls may be healed and Your love imparted to those so deeply in need of it.
Forgive us all our sins of commission and omission and help us to do Your work and live within Your will. Have mercy, I beg, and shower down your blessings of love and union to those truly and sincerely seeking a mate, that they will find the “right one” in Your eyes. Help us to seek Your perfect will that we may not have to ask for Your conditional will, but will want what you want for us with all our hearts.
Bless us, O Lord, and bring together the souls You have selected to be together – help us to recognize that “right person” when he/she comes along, for I am expanding this prayer to include all the women and men here seeking the same things included, love, union, for soulmates to be united within the will of God.
Be with us all this night and on the Sabbath, help us to worship Father, Son, and Holy Ghost in Spirit and Truth. I praise You, Lord! Glory to God, All Powerful and Almighty – Worthy is the Lamb of God. Hallelujah and Hosanna!
In the precious name of Christ…
Amen and Amen
Without Jesus We Are Sin Infested
Let us not assume that we know what people are doing. That is the job of Jesus. Where do we -as sin infested children of the most High believe that we can assume the same knowledge and wisdom as Him.
We can he glowing lights in the universe only with Jesus. Without him we are darkness and we have no fire whatsoever.
I know there is a tendency to assume. I know for I have done it. Even do it. But with the Lord is fewer and I am getting so more caring to others.
A pastor told me that most people if you were to ask do not know why they do most of the things they do. We are creatures of habit. Another reason why we need the Lord. DESPERATELY! So if we don’t know what we are dong maybe we shouldn’t be doing it!
You have done much work in my life Lord–and I am so thankful you are not finished yet for there are too many times I am. You will never leave us nor forsake us and of this I am ecstatic your Majesty!!
Vaya con Dios (God be with you)
Prayer for victims of Rape, Incest and Spousal Abuse
Dear God of endless love, ever caring, ever strong, always present, always just: You gave your only Son to save us by the Blood of His Cross. Gentle Jesus, shepherd of peace, join our anguishing souls to your own suffering the pain of all who have been hurt in Body, Mind, and Spirit by those who betrayed the trust placed in them. Hear our cries as we agonize over the harm done to our brothers and sisters. Breathe wisdom into our prayers, soothe restless hearts with hope, steady shaken spirits with faith: Show us the way to justice and wholeness, enlightened by truth and enfolded in your mercy. Holy Spirit, comforter of hearts, heal your people’s wounds and transform our brokenness. Grant us courage and wisdom, humility and grace, so that we may act with justice and find peace in you. We ask this Healing through Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Prayer for the mentally ill
Loving God, Please hear the persistent prayers and petitions of your loving children in this intention. Please bless and have mercy on all your people suffering from mental illnesses and diseases and depression, panic/anxiety attacks, bipolar disorder, manic depression, schizophrenia, ocd, Aspergers syndrome, obsessive/compulsive, Alzheimers, the criminally insane and related maladies. Please help them not to lose hope, to maintain a strong faith, to follow the remedies and improvement strategies of their pastors and medical care givers, and cure them of their mental illness. Please bless all who minister to the mentally ill, especially close family and the medical care givers that we might help these special people to prosper and live out their calling with joy and peace. Dear Lord, we also thank you for sending us prayer partners to pray for the mentally ill and their difficult lives. We pray in the name of your beloved son Jesus, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.
