To do what’s right, don’t you think the second most important step is to….
Obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus?’
According to God’s standard, for anyone to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ is as good as obeying any of God’s commandments already. Only the Satan will put plenty of “speed-bumps” and “speed-traps” as in the case of man-made religions and false prophets to derail you from participating in the most ‘Amazing Race of God’. So what does it takes to win this most ‘Amazing Race of God?’ It’s only a very simple equation to work out without the need to put on a “religious skullcap”. However, do not be so amazed while doing your homework because you will, instead, be amusingly disturbed by people with different religious ideologies as in “speed-bumps” and man’s doctrines as in “speed-traps”, relentlessly and rigorously breathing down your neck.
Because of all such kinds of impending religious intricacies that could get you shaken and stirred, you should know now what really matters is to TRUST and have FAITH in Yahweh to help you “speed” pass all such dangerous nonsense to win the most ‘Amazing Race of God’ where the reward is priceless. Of course, such commandment to “speed up” in obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ if seen as a “tall order” from Yahweh surely will not go down well with other “religious” detractors who believed and thought otherwise. Because the rewards of man-made religions are the only kind that would bring about either earthly death or eternal death, thus one should all the more “speedily” get one’s act together and do the really right thing by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ that is what really matters to Yahweh and to save one’s SOUL by knowing what SOS really means!
Have you ever wondered why there is such a religious edict “racing’ around in the Muslims’ communities forbidding Muslims to read the Bible and become Christians? Do you not know the answer? I guess not. Actually, the answer is as easy as knowing that 1 + 2 = 3. It all only boils down to common sense. One does not need to waste time and money going to religious university or college and study to become a certified “religious scholar” to figure it out. But then again, if they [Muslims] ever had such religious freedom to read the Bible and yet, not become Christians; there’s no telling how one would have interpreted or worse, ‘twisted’ the Word of God. Is there no such possibility?
Now, about the “religious” edict question, the answer, of course, is FEAR! Yes, amigo, it’s a man-made “FEAR” of Muslims racing with the Christians for not being able to make their religion, Islam, as the only “superior” one for all to follow. But too bad, it is too questionable to become one [superior] because of the flaw in creating the wrong kind of “FEAR” in unbelievers of Islam known to the Muslims as “infidels” that had to be annihilated [killed] according to the teachings found in the book of Surah in the Koran.
Be that as it may, if such man-made “FEAR” had not been instigated by causing the man-made tragedy of 9/11 to happen more than a decade ago to capture everyone’s attention, I believe most people, especially those Bible-studying and God-fearing Christians, would not have had up to this point fully understood that the Islam religion has always been associated with the “FEAR” factor that is according to Man’s standards and not God’s.
Objectively, it is such intimidating “FEAR” that only serves the purpose of burning the one and only divine bridge to God which is Jesus.
To be downright and bluntly truthful with you: if any religion is perpetrating such unsound and ridiculous “FEAR” that is according to Man’s standards in intimidating people to embrace the religion, then TRULY, there is nothing to FEAR at all because it cannot be effective and lasting enough to make people “fearful” of such man-made threats all the time. Look at what happened to Osama Bin Laden? He tried to put “FEAR” in the hearts of “infidels” and focused all his time and resources on killing the Westerners. Instead, he ended up so FEARFUL of being killed by the Western “infidels” that got himself holed up like a prisoner in one’s own prison and yet still finally got annihilated because of the wrong kind of “FEAR” his religion taught him to instigate. No one, whether “infidels” or not, will FEAR such kind of “FEAR” for goodness sake!
In fact, if you ask me what I FEAR the most and in all my life: well, let me tell you nothing but the truth. I will and can only FEAR anyone insomuch as would be so ‘graciously kind’ to me like what Jesus did to the point of sacrificing and having had died for me. Perhaps then, I would, under such circumstances, become so FEARFUL all my life knowing I CANNOT and WILL NOT be able to THANK such person [if any today] enough for such ‘godly’ kindness that will obviously leave me wondering if ever there was any other kind of “human kindness” left that is “good enough” to measure up to the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ that I can, at least, reciprocate according to God’s standard and not Man’s.
But the question is: have you or anyone come across any such flesh and blood “human being” who would be so ‘graciously kind’ as to sacrifice one’s life to SAVE you no matter what? No? I guess not! That’s because the only person who ever could and did, is Jesus – period!
Whether one has any “good intention” to agree with me or not, I believe this is the one and only ‘good enough’ reason for people to easily ‘see’ that is how the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ CAN and WILL work on anyone provided one has a heart and conscience to begin with. If NOT, even such ‘graciously kind’ act of Jesus [God himself] will not and cannot cause a person to feel remorseful and indebted enough to reciprocate the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ that has always been associated with the divine sacrifice and death of Jesus on the cross. And that is something that no man-made religions can ‘copy’ and violate such divine copyright of Yahweh! Do you see now or not see at all?
If one could use the common sense to think without even the need to embrace any of those man-made religions, one already does not have any problem at all to ‘see’ the urgency to really FEAR Yahweh [Exodus 18:21] permanently because of the ‘graciously kind’ act of Jesus that is according to God’s standard and not Man’s. You see, it is by the ‘graciousness’ and ‘mercy’ of Yahweh that will without any shadow of a doubt SAVE you or anyone.
It CANNOT be man-made religions that probably will intimidate you enough to retaliate with negative response because that was exactly what led the Americans hot on Osama Bin Laden’s tail to annihilate him finally on May 1st, 2011 only after a decade of secret intelligence and surveillance! Indeed, the theory of ‘cause and effect’ which hails from Buddhism could not be any truer in this case if cemented with the popular saying, ‘what goes around comes around!’
But sadly, it’s a ‘bitter lesson’ that all those Islamist radicals will NEVER learn and an ‘ugly truth’ they will NEVER be brave enough to accept because of man-made religions that got them screwed up badly in their heads!
Believe me, nothing as magnificent as that of the ‘graciously kind’ act of Jesus which reflected the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ had ever been found to have happened in any of those man-made religions that, perhaps, you or anyone knows of, or embracing now. You can make a list of whatever man-made religions and then check out the list one by one with a ‘tick’ to see if any one of them is “good enough” to match up with the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ that brought about the ‘Hope of Salvation’ [2 Timothy 2:7-13] to all humans by the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.
I tell you nothing but the truth. Do not bother wasting your time and effort in making the list. Trust me: you can NEVER find one “good enough” to put the “NIKE” sign on it – period! Moreover, that’s only because the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ is NOT a man-made religion, but it’s the ‘one and only’ divine SOLUTION brought to you by the courtesy of the ‘graciousness’ and ‘mercy’ of Yahweh to SAVE you from eternal death through Jesus. Do you ‘copy’ that? Please, by all means do so if you are good at copying and paste!
So, amigo, if that is the case, you might as well throw all those man-made religions out the window ASAP! And then, come back to ‘papa’ [Yahweh] as exactly as what happened in the parable of the ‘Prodigal Son’ told by Jesus in Luke 15:11-24. It was the best happy ending of a story for anyone to safely ‘copy’ because, at least, the ‘Prodigal Son’ came to his senses and REPENTED. Can you ‘copy’ that? Of course you can, but will you do so according to God’s standard and not Man’s? And that means: obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus!’
Of course, amigo, I can’t deny that there are also some truths in man-made religions. But what if I say those “truths” are only based on the philosophies or principles of life for anyone to become a “Better Man” and that’s about it? Do you believe me then? No? It does not matter whether you believe me or not, but what’s the real problem that I dare say is, man-made religions do not, cannot and will not save one’s soul eternally because the Bible tells me so! Check this out in Isaiah 46:4-13.
Again, of course, I do believe in some truths of man-made religions but only so sorry to say, these “truths” no matter how religiously true one might have thought and believed, do not actually ADDRESS and much less solve the real issue of humanity that we are all under the curse of ‘sin, death and the devil’. If you listen to the words of Isaiah in Isaiah 43:24, “But you have burdened me with your sins and wearied me with your offences”, even Isaiah as a prophet directly sent by God, he was already like so exhausted not knowing what to do to bring the ‘children of Israel’ back on the correct path to God that true Christians are doing the same today. So, what makes you think man-made religions not even endorsed or authorized by God can do better than God’s plan delivered by Jesus to save people today from sin, death and the devil ?
Actually, any Tom, Dick or Harry can become a “Better Man” even without the need to go one big round to embrace any man-made religions to be told if one can do this or cannot do that. All one ever needed was a heart and conscience. However, for one to have a heart and conscience to become “righteous” and “holy” is a thing of the past and pretty hard to come by these days because of too many “humans” preferring to become either as “robots” or as “dead men walking” [zombies] on earth to know what really matters to Yahweh and what SOS really means!
Really, if you or anyone could prove Romans 3:23 is a blatant lie by signing a SD [statutory declaration] that you NEVER ever had committed sin, will NEVER ever die, and NEVER ever once in your life had been a ‘devil-in-disguise’ to do or say anything as a hypocrite would, then honestly, you do not even deserve a pat on your back. Do you know why?
Because firstly, if that is the case, you would have saved God a whole lot of trouble to come down from heaven to suffer at the hands of humans and then die for everyone simply because humans do not ever see wake up to see the sinful nature of themselves when looking in the mirror. Do you?
And secondly, it would be rather a ‘blessing-in-disguise’ for me even to be seen as the “bad guy” if that is what it takes to save your soul. That’s because God had declared that if a prophet [messenger] does not warn a person of one’s sins and the urgency to REPENT and walk in righteousness again, then, if that person dies, the blood of the person will be on the hand of the prophet. But if the prophet had obeyed God’s commandment to warn the person and the person does not bother to ‘come clean’ and REPENT of one’s unrighteousness, then, the prophet shall be spared the blame. Check this out in Ezekiel 3:18-21 and Ezekiel 18:4.
That is why, in Christianity, there is NO such necessity to implement mandatory “religious laws” to force people to obey and if not, to fine and jail any Christians for flouting such laws. According to God’s standard, the heart and conscience will suffice to act as the true guide for the Christians to obey His commandments.
Thirdly, if you believe and have “faith” that man-made religions and not Jesus, can easily resolve such deadly curse of humanity where no one is free from, you would have had already earned yourself the greatest “power” and “authority” than Jesus that, so much so, you have no fear in telling off any of Yahweh’s messengers [Christians] to go fly kites and not to bother you anymore with such “nonsense” about obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ as though you needed Jesus so badly to save you from drowning when you are such a “champion” in swimming that you will NEVER ever get drown or that you NEVER ever have gone swimming or rather sinning in your life, thus Jesus had no chance of saving you from drowning in your sins since you are “greater” than Him now. Is that not right, amigo?
Of course, you are right, amigo, if you would rather be more concerned about “saving face” than saving your SOUL from eternal damnation by not admitting that Romans 3:23 applies to you and everyone. It’s understandable too that amigo will somehow protest this is not the nicest thing for this writer and as a Christian to say in public, right? Yes, you are absolutely right! Is it not so stupid and unnecessary of this writer to be so concern about people’s SOULS to the point of getting despised, hated and to be avoided for not having anything “nice” but only truths to say that will “piss” people off as though it’s one’s favorite pass time hobby?
For your information, that is exactly what happened to Jesus too. He suffered and died at the hands of humans for not having something “nice” but only ugly truths to say. But if Jesus had no qualms then in telling off those religious hypocrites with the six woes recorded in Luke but Matthew recorded seven woes instead; then, don’t you think His disciples now known as Christians should have no qualms in doing the same too even if one may end up as a martyr like Him? Now, just because of not having something “nice’ but only ugly truth to say, a bunch of religious hypocrites plotted to kill Jesus. Can you imagine that? I guess not!
Now, if those religious hypocrites were smart enough and had not plotted to kill Jesus and if Jesus did not die as a martyr and resurrected, there would not have existed the need to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ that in which case means: if Jesus is no longer a threat to man-made religions, then the Satan would have won the battle to counter attack God’s will and plan on earth to keep humans from reconciling with Him again, right or not?
But the Satan, obviously, had made the biggest mistake in rallying behind those religious hypocrites to kill Jesus. Because Jesus died and resurrected that in which case means: if He had conquered DEATH, He had made it possible for humans too, by only obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ that is according to God’s standard. Is that not right? And because of such a change of event having taken place that caught the Satan off guard, the Satan had no choice but to get around and act quickly to make sure humans still face the ETERNAL DEATH – even if it’s only fighting over a simple matter with what name one can or cannot use to refer as God. Can you imagine that? I guess not!
You see, amigo, man-made religions can only go “so far” and be “so good” as to “teach” people to live a “principled and disciplined” life on earth where saying is one thing and doing is quite another. It is, therefore, not as holy and perfect as what the ‘graciousness’ and ‘mercy’ of Yahweh are like, simply because it has the divine power to SAVE one’s SOUL eternally when everything else can’t! It’s as plain and simple as that! So that only means, whether man-made religions can make one become a “Better Man” or not is already so questionable that it leaves much to be desired.
On the contrary, one can safely say that the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ actually goes BEYOND all such earthly spectrum of religious “teachings” be it earthly things or heavenly things. So, the only one best way to describe it in simple language is: ONLY by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ will one finally come to God’s ‘one-stop center’ to have the divine power to “kill” two birds with one stone so much so that according to God’s standard, man-made religions CAN’T whether it “hurts” one’s feelings or not! Got my drift? I guess not!
So, little did they know? The one serious wrong move that they [Muslims] made in fighting their “Holy Jihad” was by instigating the wrong kind of “FEAR” on others by killing all “infidels” in the world as instructed by the Koran. Come on, common sense alone will tell you how could such silly teaching in killing “infidels”or in religiously intimidating others with whatever enactment laws, will make others think such religion is “superior?”
Because of that, it has now backfired on them and their religion instead! Now, everyone can see clearly that the religion either strikes “FEAR” in the hearts and minds of “infidels” to propel “speedy” submission to their version of an “almighty God” that is Allah or that; what is even clearer than crystal for anyone to see is those religious radicals who, as “speedsters” themselves, being overtly “true” to Islam have always been living in real FEAR themselves of being “speedily” proselytized by others especially Christians – if they [religious radicals] failed to put up “speed-limits” such as the “apostasy” act among others to prevent any innocent Muslims from being proselytized.
If their religion, Islam, is “true” and sufficiently as well as efficiently proven to be “divinely” endorsed by the one true Almighty God, it should not have any problems to be substantiated with divine scriptures from the Koran convincingly enough for people to believe and be converted to Islam, but too bad, there is none! Instead, what’s worse is when their extremist actions reflected otherwise.
So, it’s not surprising that most of what one can read in the Koran is much like ‘copied’ from here and there of others and then it’s all only about doing a “good job” in turnaround of things to make it sound and look “superior” than others. That is the reason why they could only resort to employing the “speedy” tactic: that is, putting “FEAR” in the hearts of “infidels” as substantiated in the book of Surah, and not by ‘graciousness’ where there’s no divine scriptures in the Koran to support it, let alone can they lead by such example?
If ever there were full of “love” and “compassion” in the religion, there is no reason whatsoever for them to use “FEAR” as a means to intimidate people in embracing the religion in the first place, is there? Any right thinking person would have been easily pissed and not be intimidated by such illogical and ridiculous teachings. Am I not right to say so? What’s more, it’s already too late for them to turn back time even by using “love and compassion” or “reconciliation” or “amazing grace” now to promote their religion because doing so would be violating the divine ‘copyrights’ of Yahweh and insulting Christianity as these are the well-known trademarks of the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ all along even before the Prophet Muhammad was born and founded Islam only at the age of 40!
Even any average Joe can understand now the reason Muslims are not allowed to touch, let alone read the Holy Bible is no other than the FEAR of the ‘Good News’ of Jesus Christ always having the ‘endless possibilities’ in touching the heart and conscience of anyone, let alone any innocent Muslims. But the biggest and real FEAR among the religious bigots is when any innocent Muslims could become “smart” enough to figure out who the one true Almighty God [Yahweh] is if they have been given the right of freedom to read the Bible or attend church services.
So, to prevent such ‘endless possibilities’ to happen, it would have been “wiser” and “smarter” for the religious radicals to come out with such man-made religious edict such as the “speed-limit” [apostasy act] of religious freedom to stop any innocent Muslims from reading the Holy Bible and thus, not having any chances to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ which is the only ‘Hope of Salvation’ for all mankind.
As such, if ever there happened to have any innocent Muslims who became sensible enough to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’, there is no way one can do so because of the “apostasy” act which is the “speed-limit” that would allow plenty of time for the religious bigots to catch up and stop any Muslims from becoming a Christian as the top priority. So you can imagine there is so much of FEAR reigning inside and outside of any innocent Muslims to have even the right of freedom to choose and to decide where their destiny should bring them. Can you not imagine? I guess so!
If ever anyone, as a human being, given the human rights at birth by the Creator of the heaven and earth to think, reason and have unrestricted freedom of choice to study or even do research on anything be it religion or God so that one may know and understand the spiritual implication behind any of God’s commandments for humans to follow and obey, then, it is absolutely no business of anyone regardless of race or status to prevent or to stop others from doing so with any of those ridiculous man-made “religious laws” especially Islam that are not even according to God’s standard, but Man’s.
No one, whether as Muslim or not, can thump on one’s chest and guarantee with one’s blood that any religion whether Islam or not is the only “superior” religion for everyone to follow and embrace. Can you? But the sad truth is: all Muslims have been religiously ‘programmed’ to defend Islam even if it is not what it claimed to be on many aspects.
One of the most common ones is the ‘conflict of interest’ where, at the outset, other people of whatever race or religion, can convert to Islam and become Muslims, but not the other way around for Muslims to choose others. Can anyone consider such religious edict as according to God’s standard? I don’t think so! Besides, do you not think this is the most ridiculous thing ever to have happened in the history of mankind by forfeiting one’s right to choose one’s path?
As such, how could it [Islam] be substantiated as “divinely” endorsed by the one and only true Almighty God who would NEVER deny the right and freedom of anyone and everyone to question anything or anyone [including royalties] under the Sun, even Him [God] to choose one’s path? With the recent development of a religious “conflict” getting even more ridiculous and laughable is the news of people from other faith not even allowed to use the name, “Allah” to refer as God. As such, it is unthinkable how anyone would ever want to relate to such religion that will cause people to go backwards in every aspects.
Even just for the sake of argument without really arguing, do Muslims only have the “copyright” to own the name, “Allah” which is only just a name in Arabic for God? Do the Muslims today even have the basic knowledge that Arab Christians have used the word even long before the Prophet Muhammad founded the Islam religion? Why then make such a big deal out of it and for whose sake? Is it really for Allah’s sake or more like politically motivated in the name of Allah by mixing religion with politics which is by far the most ridiculous thing to have ever happened on planet earth?
So any average Joe can easily tell how “superior” such religion is when it stops at nothing in unreasonably controlling, oppressing, and worse, so theocratic as to take the ‘extremist’ approach in encroaching on the fundamental human rights of people even in choosing what name to use in reference as God. Is it a crime and a sin then, to use the Arabic word, “Allah” to refer as God? If so, who said so? Is it the Koran? Where in the Koran said so then?
Honestly, if you ask me, it would NEVER have occurred to me as such a big deal in “fighting” for the “right” to use the word, “Allah” that does not prove to mean anything seriously divine as that of the Hebrew word, Yahweh. The word, “Allah” is but only just another word to refer as God in another language only. Really, it would have been so easy for me to flee from “fighting” for the “right” to use that name even without thinking about it.
On top of that, the fact that the Prophet Muhammad who founded Islam did not have the divine power to forgive the sins of mankind as he, only a human being also badly needed forgiveness himself from above as does every human being, is already a good enough reason for anyone not to have anything to do with him and his religion. By right, if he knew where he stood according to God’s standard in Romans 3:23, should he not have taken it as the 1st priority to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ himself instead of having invented another religion by ‘copying’ others such as Judaism in particular?
Perhaps, that only goes to prove one thing: that Jesus who prophesied ‘false prophets’ will arise to further wreak havoc on earth even after He had already proclaimed in His divine mission for Yahweh that, “It is finished”, is indeed true with what one can see happening now.
When the Prophet Muhammad committed adultery for having married 15 wives, this alone, is a serious sin according to God’s laws [Ten Commandments] and Man’s laws. Don’t you think then it is so clear enough that he already had lost the credibility to be even seen as a “man-of-God”, thus cannot be considered as a “prophet” and having the “authority” to teach people about morals to begin with?
Did you not know that even God punished King David for having committed adultery? Read 2 Samuel 12 for proof. There are plenty of verses in the Bible to substantiate that it’s a sin to commit adultery like in Exodus 20: 14; Leviticus 18:20; Leviticus 20:10; Proverbs 5:1; Proverbs 6:32; Jeremiah 3:6; Jeremiah 3:9; just to cite a few.
Furthermore, he would have been easily seen as also broken the marital laws according to Man’s standards because it is only fitting for every man to have one wife only, the basic foundation to build a happy family that is also evidently substantiated in the Bible as obeying one of the commandments of God in the Old Testament and from the teachings of Jesus in the New Testament.
So the question is: why is it that other “innocent” Muslims are keeping dead quiet about what some other religious critics making such unwarranted claims that Isaiah 29:11 as referring to the Prophet Muhammad and not Jesus? It’s interesting: how is it possible that an Arab “prophet” and a Gentile could have “suddenly” taken the place of Jesus, a Hebrew prophesied as the Messiah to save mankind from the curse of sin, death and devil? Well, in that case, I believe anyone having married only one wife and not committed adultery to sin against God could have made a better prophet than him then, right or not?
What’s even more amusing to know is that it was Jesus who quoted the same thing in Matthew 15:7-9 exactly what Isaiah said in Isaiah 29:13 that actually prophesied about Jesus and not the Prophet Muhammad that some Muslims critics have laid claims on. Can you or any Muslims find any exact quotes in the Koran that the Prophet Muhammad having ever said the same thing as what the prophet Isaiah had said in the Bible? I don’t think so!
What most people do not realize is that there will be ‘endless possibilities’ for not even one of the innocent Muslims to be capable of feeling remorseful of one’s sins if every one of them would continue to be so ‘radically influenced’ enough by the religion to think they are born of the “flesh and blood” and yet “do not” need to have a heart and conscience to reciprocate the ‘Amazing Grace of Yahweh’ to REPENT and ‘come clean’ so that one can become SAVED from ‘sin, death and the devil’ by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’.
Perhaps, this is the worst kept secret that the religion Islam does not want its followers to know. What could not be any worse is that people are dumb enough not to have found out such ugly truth or perhaps are keeping “mum” about it even if they do know for FEAR of reprisal. Check out Proverbs 1:7 and Matthew 10:28.
However, it is still not too late for any innocent Muslims to see and to do something about it before it really is too late! But I guess it really is too late already to turn back – for a lot of them even dare not touch the Bible, let alone reading it!
Although Jesus’ name appeared in the Koran many times, he is only treated as a “small fry” and, of course, still being “respected” by all Muslims as like any other prophets mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible like Abraham and Moses as an example. But the Prophet Muhammad had not ever been mentioned anywhere in the Bible. The funny thing is: why did the Koran fail specifically to portray Jesus as the Son of God or “Allah” in Arabic, who died and resurrected, thus rightfully qualified as the Savior of the world but which [the Koran] exactly contradicted what the Holy Bible portrayed about Him?
If you study the Koran where there are many similarities with Judaism still following and practicing the Mosaic laws and traditions and what the Prophet Muhammad have ‘copied’ from day one and all the Muslims doing almost the same things today, you would then easily spot the Koran’s radical contradiction of Jesus’ death and resurrection compared to what the Holy Bible in the New Testament described about Him [Jesus] who He really was and still is.
Obviously, this is rather odd and strange, is it not? Why ‘copy’ a little and not all? One might as well don’t ‘copy’ at all and create one’s own originality like the Buddhism religion, right or not? And then, there is absolutely NO WORRY of any kind of disputes over who violates whose copyrights for committing plagiarism.
So it looks like there’s a man-made ‘conspiracy theory’ here to crack. But actually, there is no such nonsense. It’s because of the Koran that caused such nonsense to pop out that gave people no choice but to counter-check with the Bible which is the Word of God. Actually, only by using one’s common sense, one can easily sort everything out already but the trouble is: people do not seem to be impressed or worse, rather pissed with such a common yet noble advice about using one’s head to be sensible and not to be sensitive.
True and False Prophets
Firstly: if one would seriously get down to studying the Holy Bible, it is as easy as ABC to notice that one of the most important aspects that one should know is the history of God’s prophets like who they were and what God had commanded them to do. You do not hear of such thing in man-made religions, or worse as in Islam to find any other prophets existing before the Prophet Muhammad to prophesy about him in the Koran sent by “Allah” to save the world from sin, death and the devil, do you? Instead, he only instructed the Muslims to kill all the Jews, Christians and “infidels” in the book of Surah which literally speaks nothing but volumes of violence and crimes against humanity.
But in the Bible, any of God’s prophets who prophesied about a Messiah actually were accurately fulfilled because of prominent prophets such as Isaiah and Jeremiah. The reason these two well-known prophets played such big role in God’s will and plan on earth is because Yahweh chose them to make the most important prophecy of all time about the coming of a Messiah that, we all know or should we not, had been accurately fulfilled by Jesus of Nazareth and graciously sent by Yahweh to atone for the sins of mankind.
So it became clear that such scriptural prophecy if having been divinely fulfilled by Jesus of Nazareth as what Isaiah and Jeremiah among others, had prophesied in the Old Testament; then, why still question such accuracy of the prophets as though it came from “false prophets?” There is, however, no prophecy whatsoever found in the Old Testament of anything at all as in ZERO that “prophesied” about the Prophet Muhammad even as the “last prophet” after Jesus, let alone as a “prophet” of Yahweh.
Some of the critics and even Muslim scholars and detractors claimed that Isaiah 29:11 “actually” indicated about the Prophet Muhammad in this link, “Muhammad in the Bible” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyoTOSZ7rzQ. But as what, if may ask – a Messiah? Is that so? If it is, then, that is absolutely rubbish and not true in whatever sense or logic. No doubt, the prophet Isaiah was all the while talking about a Messiah, but it’s someone who should come from the house of David to save the world from sin, death and the devil and that was obviously pointing to Jesus of Nazareth that we know of today – not the Prophet Muhammad!
How could the Prophet Muhammad, an Arab and as a Gentile, suddenly became a “Hebrew” to come from the house of David who was also one of the descendants of the Hebrews to “deliver” the ‘children of Israel’ [Israelites] in Jerusalem from sins? Are you kidding me? Please don’t make me roll on the floor laughing for goodness sake!
Furthermore, what Isaiah pointed out in Isaiah 6:8, whether one is reading the KJV version or not, is that Yahweh [God] was punishing Jerusalem because the people were still sinful and unrepentant – NOT because of following “false prophets” as the reason to reject Him [Yahweh]. Only false prophets do not warn people of the consequence of sins. So, how could it have been possible that Yahweh [God] sent “false prophets” such as Isaiah or Jeremiah who strenuously warned His people [Israelites] to REPENT from their sinfulness? Does what those Muslims critics claimed make sense? Absolutely not!
If the critics claimed Isaiah 6:8 was referring to the Prophet Muhammad as “chosen” by Yahweh to warn His people, the ‘children of Israel’, from sinning, then that is nothing but the most preposterous thing to say and that’s blasphemy! Have the Muslims forgotten that it was the Prophet Muhammad himself who instructed Muslims to kill all Jews and Christians because they are “infidels” according to the book of Surah in the Koran. So, which is which – to kill or to save? Are they not seriously confused themselves? Certainly, something is definitely wrong with their “wisdom” in reading the Bible to have come out with such pervert interpretations in trying to confuse the unsuspecting public.
Thus, nothing in the Book of Isaiah or anywhere in the Holy Bible could have substantiated any claims that the Prophet Muhammad [Arab] had ever gotten any “divine” purpose to fulfill for the God of the Hebrews who sent Jesus – also a Hebrew! That is the reason why NOTHING had ever been said, prophesied or even in the least implicated about him [the Prophet Muhammad] in the Old and New Testament no matter what those critics claimed or continue making such bizarre and foolish claims.
Based on historical fact, one should know very well that the Prophet Muhammad who founded Islam in 610 AD at the age of 40, was not born yet even long after the apostles had completed their task that Jesus commissioned them in the first century [33 AD] to spread the ‘Good News’ of His death and resurrection.
To simply “squeeze” in the Prophet Muhammad, an Arab, as playing a “big role” in God’s will and plan on earth after Jesus had finished doing all the work, is nothing but speaking blasphemy and is 101% out the question. That’s because the biggest question is: what is there to fulfill anymore when Jesus had already completed the divine ‘mission’ in fulfilling God’s will and plan on earth? All the prophesies about the coming of the Messiah by prophets such as Isaiah and Jeremiah who existed a thousand years before Jesus came into existence only systemically had proven that the death and resurrection of Jesus as the ‘Hope of Salvation’ to all by having Jesus explicitly said, “IT IS FINISHED!” in John 19:30.
Come on amigo, common sense alone will tell you that Yahweh could not have been so “imbecile” as to send another non-Hebrew prophet, the Prophet Muhammad after Jesus, to contradict and undermine His will and plan, could He? And common sense will tell you that the “archangel Gabriel” having been claimed in the Koran to have “appeared” to a non-Hebrew “prophet” is without doubt defying logic and thus, immensely questionable!
Don’t forget, amigo, the Bible had mentioned that the Satan was once an archangel of God but only a fallen one. So it does not come as a surprise that he too, had the power to disguise himself as an “angel” of God or even as “Gabriel” to fool the self-proclaimed Prophet Muhammad. If that is the case, then, have you not been assiduously fooled by the Satan also doubling as “God” himself? Check this out at 2 Corinthians 11:14 that said, “the Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light” and “he leads the world astray” in Revelation 12:9.
Anyone who “professed” to embrace the Islam religion that got absolutely NOTHING whatsoever to do or anything at all similar with the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ which dwells on the true divine kindness and purpose of God’s will and plan on earth to offer ‘Hope of Salvation’ for all, should not arbitrarily abuse any scriptures of the Bible which is the Word of God, to wrongfully and purportedly interpret any of their ‘pervert’ and ‘pernicious’ claims, whether it’s about the Prophet Muhammad or not as having been “rightfully substantiated” by the Bible when it is not.
So, amigo, beware and be seriously forewarned of such real ‘false prophets’ out there now! Yahweh had already given the warning to take stern action on anyone who demeans and desecrate the Word of God in Revelation 22:18-19.
If people, whether as critics or religious scholars or not, do not put a full stop to carrying such unrealistic and unethical act of sabotage either to discredit, denounce or when necessary take ‘piggyback’ ride on the truth of the Word of God, the Bible whether it’s about the God’s prophets or the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ to make “good” on one’s religion especially Islam; then, don’t be surprised that in no time, such irresponsible critics or religiously screwed up people may even make unwarranted claims that the Bible is the “copycat” of the Koran and not the other way around.
Don’t you know that man-made religions could so easily make people ‘lose’ their minds as in getting screwed up that Jesus had warned long time ago that such ‘faithless and perverse generation’ of people would do whatever it takes to protect the so-called sanctity of one’s religion especially Islam, even if it means having to destroy others with wrongful interpretations to cause confusion among the Christians and worse, the public?
Secondly: all God’s prophets and if any one of them is not fake or false, came from the descendants of the Hebrews all along. Jesus being exalted as the ‘Prophet of the prophets’ by Yahweh came from the line of King David, also one of the descendants of the Hebrews. Anything having to do with God’s prophets then had to come from the chosen people of God the Israelites who were the Hebrews and none others. As such, no one, even from the Israelites could simply become a “prophet” without the blessings and divine authority of Yahweh as indicated in Deuteronomy 18:14-22.
So, the question is: was the self-proclaimed Prophet Muhammad an “Israelite” and got the “blessings” and divine “authority” from Yahweh? No, I don’t think so! He was an Arab 100% for goodness sake! So, amigo, never try to mix oil with water because it will SEPARATE no matter what. It is entirely two different thing altogether – just like the Arabs and Jews today! Can they mix together? I don’t think so!
Can anyone answer only 3 questions below with scriptures from the Bible to substantiate if ever the Prophet Muhammad qualified as the so-called last prophet sent by Yahweh?
- Where in the Bible indicated that the Prophet Muhammad, an Arab “suddenly” became an Israelite to come from the house of David who was one of the descendants of the Hebrews? None!
- If the Prophet Muhammad committed adultery which is a serious sin against God, could he still have qualified to carry out the “divine” task of God to tell people not to sin? If it was so, where in the Bible said so? None!
- What proof is there that Yahweh had chosen an Arab [Gentile] as a “prophet” to carry on the task of bringing people back to be reconciled with Him when he did the opposite [killing] in the book of Surah? None!
The Bible only indicated in the Book of Acts that such task had already been passed on to the apostles by Jesus and then the Christians at Antioch and Christians now. So how could Yahweh have made such a silly “blunder” to contradict oneself by “squeezing” in the Prophet Muhammad out of the blue?
Thirdly: all prophets as long as they existed as humans in flesh and blood, had already died including the so-called Prophet Muhammad. Of course, Jesus also died but what made Him different from others is that He rose from the dead on the third day but nothing of such mighty miracle happened to the Prophet Muhammad! Did it? I don’t think so! And that only meant Jesus was the ‘one and only one’ who had divinely fulfilled exactly the prophecies of the Messiah prophesied by prominent prophets such as Isaiah and Jeremiah umpteen years before the real event taking place. Do not forget too. There are plenty of scriptures such as the one popularly and often quoted in John 8:58, “Before Abraham was, I am” is already good enough to offer amble proof that Jesus is God coming in the flesh to atone for the sins of the humankind.
