God’s Mirror of Truth
“What is God’s mirror of truth?”
Given you – if you are reading this now, how do you answer such kind of theological questions? Whose standard would you base your answers on – God or Man? Can you answer from your heart and with a clear conscience? But until then, so sorry to tell you nothing but the ugly truth – you cannot answer this exceptional question and you do not know how! Why? That’s simply because you are not a Christian and thus, CANNOT handle the gospel truth of God!
So, why are you not a Christian? Is it because you were “born” a Muslim and forever stuck till doomsday so much so it’s out of the question for you to become a Christian? Not to mention, the worst of all worse things going against you is – there’s nothing you can do about it because of the ‘apostasy act’ in Islam that strictly forbids all Muslims to abandon their “faith” to become Christians – especially!
The reason it’s made mandatory for Muslims to live and die as anti-Christ is no other than to fulfill the prophecy of ‘Armageddon’ to come as found written in the Book of Revelation! That’s when the beast will gather all such inhabitants [anti-Christ] of the earth whose names have not been written in the ‘book of life’ from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because he once was, now is not, and yet will come – Revelation 17:8. The beast referred in the Bible is no other than the Satan aka Lucifer!
Or, could it be because you, whether as a Muslim or not, asked the wrong people like those anti-Christ who told you half-truths and worse, lies about who Jesus was and that the Son of Man “married” Mary Magdalene, a prostitute and “secretly” had children? If that is the case, then you should all the more open your eyes wide and read properly the scriptures in John 20:10-18, especially verse 18 when she said, “I have seen the Lord!” Did she claim, “I have seen my husband?”
Only then, will you be convinced that Jesus never addressed Mary Magdalene as His wife, nor did she address Jesus as her husband. And if you ever believed such blatant and unsubstantiated lies that Jesus “married” Mary Magdalene, you would have made a bloody fool of yourself in the sight of God – period! Also, in the divine sense – you owed Jesus an apology!
You should know that up until now, there’s no biblical proof even from Jesus’ disciples to substantiate such bizarre and unwarranted claims since Jesus’ death and resurrection – so why now? Perhaps, it is not very difficult to figure out – if you are a Christian to begin with! You see, all Christians already knew and expected that those who are anti-Christ will always look for the devil’s opportunity to speak blasphemy against the Son of God by telling such kind of evil lies to tarnish the good name of our Lord Jesus Christ so much so they will never stop as prophesied in 1 John 1:7; 1 John 2:18-22; and 1 John 4:3!
If Jesus, having claimed Himself as the Son of God sent by His Father in heaven to do His Father’s will on earth ever “married” Mary Magdalene and had “children”, His blood would have gotten blemished by the blood of a sinner and thus, unclean. If that’s what happened, Jesus would have obviously violated God’s commandment to fulfill the New Covenant of God’s promise of eternal life to everyone through Him.
Such divine purpose of the highest order from God that has to be fulfilled with unblemished blood to seal God’s promise made in the New Covenant cannot, in any way, be compromised – if it was to work out according to God’s standard! That’s why Jesus couldn’t afford to make even one mistake! If He did, God’s will and plan to SAVE humans from the curse of sin, death and the devil would have failed to materialize 100%. And then, we shall all be doomed forever!
Common sense alone will tell us that – if ever Jesus “married” Mary Magdalene, He would have disobeyed God. To disobey God over a woman and having His blood gotten blemished and unclean to “marry” her and worse, had “children” was not even the last thing on Jesus’ mind to do! Just use your brains – if you still have one to spare! If Jesus did “marry” Mary Magdalene and no matter how well He kept such “secret” from His disciples, do you think He could have ever bluffed His way out so much so even His Father in heaven do not have the divine power to know what was going on?
Do you think His Father in heaven would have EXALTED Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name in Philippians 2:9? You cannot be getting so DUMB and DUMBER than ever to get fooled by such nonsensical man-made theories that holds no water, can you?
Just think – if Jesus’ blood had gotten blemished and unclean through “marriage” and had “children”, He certainly would not even have the divine power from above to do miracles in the first place, let alone atone for the sins of mankind! That’s why if you read the Koran, you can NEVER find nor heard from Muslims that the Prophet Muhammad, having had ‘married’ so many wives, ever had the divine power from “Allah” to do “miracles” in his lifetime to heal the sick, the blinds or even raised anyone from the dead like Jesus did! Can you?
The gospel truth is – Muslims should have known better than Christians that the Prophet Muhammad, like everyone else in flesh and blood implicated in Romans 3:23 and Romans 6:23 and as ‘slaves to sin’, all the more needed to save himself from the curse of sin, death and the devil by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’! Instead, he started his own religion, Islam and religiously ‘incited’ all his followers until today to KILL “kafirs” such as Jews and Christians and thus, turning all Muslims to become anti-Christ until the time when all such inhabitants of the earth will wake up to find themselves on the wrong side of the divide!
This was the best ever adopted ‘devil-in disguise’ of the beast to keep using man-made religions to prepare his band of followers for the showdown with God in the final battle in what is known as the ‘Armageddon’ revealed in the Book of Revelation! By using man-made religions that would somewhat be “unsuspecting” to most gullible humans who are the DUMB and DUMBER ones, the beast would have gotten the upper hand in trapping humans to stand on his side effortlessly.
Because of gullible humans always “believing” all religions are the same that will so-called lead them to the same “God” without suspecting it is the beast who always glamorize himself as “God” that is “better” and more “powerful” than the real ONE who is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, so humans have unfortunately had become the victims whether knowingly or unknowingly!
But too bad, even with Christians around to WARN all such inhabitants whether as idols-worshippers or not, still, they continue to worship the wrong version and that is no other than the beast always so good at disguising himself as “God” on earth to fool those who are gullible enough to have fallen into his hideous and vicious trap without knowing it, or knowing it but pretend not to!
As if this is not bad news enough, even Muslims whether moderate or radicals, knowing about the Holy War – a spiritual warfare revealed in the Holy Bible, are making matters worse. Strangely though, those who viewed themselves as “moderate” Muslims will always end up acting otherwise. They not only aggressively deny the ugly truth about their wrong version of “Holy Jihad” that those IS bad extremists are undertaking and who religiously “believed” they were in the right track to kill “kafirs” according to the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad found written in the book of Surah in the Koran.
But the worst part is, they are contradicting themselves when they are also aggressively protecting their religion at all cost – meaning to say, by hook or by crook! Now, is that not the same as “bad extremism-in-disguise”? Have they ‘all of a sudden’ forgotten that they were supposed to be “moderate” Muslims? You see, the devil’s problem is, there are 2 groups with different ideologies doing two different thing at the same time, thus erupting a conflict of interest among themselves either to kill or be killed!
As for those bad extremists such as IS now trying to turn Iraq and Syria to be a part of an Islamic caliphate – they are using violence to kill not just non-Muslims, especially Christians but also not surprisingly, even those coward Muslims running away from their religious duties to become “true Muslims” like them! As for those so-called educated and moderate Muslims, they could only, at worse, “democratically” use man-made draconian laws to stop not only those bad extremists from purging the world with violence, but also with repressive laws to stop Christians from letting the world know such ugly truth of the beast using man-made religions to bring us humans on the war path with God in the end!
Because Muslims have gotten themselves trapped wilfully to become anti-Christ, they will never have any chance to ‘make a change’ according to God’s standard to “break their chains” and be set free from the beast! As this can only be done by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ which is out of the question for them, so it’s sadder than sad to see there’s nothing anyone, not even Christians can say or do to make them change their minds even to save their own souls from the bondage of the beast! It’s like you cannot even tell a smoker who is smoking like nobody’s business under the hot and scorching sun to quit smoking – if you know what I mean?
Because you are not a Christian – that already made you anti-Christ in the sight of God! That is why you do not even have the ‘sense and sensibility’ to tell the difference between God’s standard and Man’s standards, what more – between good extremism and bad extremism! And of course, you do not even know, let alone have the ‘sense of direction’ to ‘see’ you are, whether as a Muslim or not, in a very dangerous and precarious situation because the beast had gotten you too blinded to see even the ugly truth of anything!
Because the beast had gotten you so confused not knowing who the one true Almighty God is, thus you ended up as blind as a bat worshipping the beast as your version of the one true Almighty “God” than the ONE from the Holy Bible and who sent Jesus! So naturally, you cannot tell the big difference between good ideology like the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ found written in the Holy Bible that can SAVE your soul from eternal damnation and bad ideology to KILL “kafirs” [infidels] found written in the book of Surah in the Koran!
As a matter of fact, even if you are academically “educated” or a “learned” person in religious matters other than the ‘Gospel of Jesus’, you still know nothing about what good extremism is and what it can do to counter and solve the problem of bad extremism – especially in racial and religious issues!
Even if you go according to Man’s standards, you don’t even know what the devil you are good at – if you do not exercise good extremism that merits positive thinking that is about giving your best shot that in turn, will bring about maximum success and achievements of the highest level in whatever earthly ambition you are pursuing!
Perhaps, the reason you don’t even know what good extremism that merits positive thinking is all about is because of you having blindly condemned “all forms of extremism” just for the sake of promoting “moderation” which can do absolutely nothing to stop bad extremism even in racial and religious issues, let alone those IS bad extremists who are only “so good” at cutting off people’s heads! And neither can it do any good in promoting personal development of oneself and the country – to say the least!
Again, even if you go according to Man’s standards to give the best of good extremism in everything, be it in education, politics, employments, or in promoting corporate social responsibilities and whatnot, this is where it matters the most – either you go for 100% success or you end up a 100% failure! Success has no place for “moderation” and that only means – either you win or you lose, die or live, good or evil, on God’s side or Satan’s side, so on and so forth!
To put it bluntly, you cannot even act as a “moderator” in a court of law, especially in dealing with high-profile cases and expect to execute proper and justifiable justice. You either act as a prosecutor to the best of your ability to win the case or the other side beats you flat-out! In other words, if you ever professed yourself as “a-man-of God” and yet cannot substantiate your claims with proof of ever endorsed by the Almighty God to have the divine authority to religiously “punish” people by chopping off hands and legs under such religious laws like the “hudud laws”, you had better think twice and real hard before you act as though God “gave you the power” to carry out such despicable and inhumane acts in the name of God whether in Arabic or not!
Do not even think you can escape from having to answer to the one true Almighty God just because you “believed” you have done Him a big favour on earth by executing those religious but ridiculous laws even according to Man’s standards, let alone God’s!
Even if you talk about nation-building in a multiracial society, the chances are, either you make your country a developed nation with 100% success that must allow ‘freedom of speech’ to bring about fairness, equality and justifiable justice for all, or you 100% break the nation into oblivion – if you are suppressing ‘freedom of speech’ with regressive laws just to shut people up because of people having had good and valid reasons to tell nothing but the truth, ugly or not, of anything or anyone regardless of race or status!
Even at such point, you don’t even know it makes such a big difference between success and failure in nation-building as a whole! So, do you or do you not know that it takes giving the best of good extremism to get all such important involvements accomplished that will in turn help to make this world a better place?
In order to achieve such a noble and simple ambition without letting impartiality and ridiculous laws get in the way, everyone must work towards bringing back the heart and conscience as our guide – not work to go backwards to give people false hope with outdated and regressive laws to suppress those who had noble ambitions to stand up and speak out the truth, ugly or not, of anything and anyone!
When there is no ‘freedom of speech’ to address whatever issues, whether racial or religious ones, then it will only get worse than ever! Why? That’s because those who have the authority and power will have the upper hand to abuse it like nobody’s business! It is absolutely wrong that people, especially law-makers always perceive ‘freedom of speech’ as a “one-way street” only for common people to abuse it which is entirely not the case and not true either. In fact, the ones who always will and can abuse it are those crooked and narrow-minded law-makers themselves because they are always so fearful of being implicated of wrongdoings by the common people!
That means – even law-makers who supposedly uphold the laws with a heart and conscience had invariably lost their ‘sense of direction’ for not even knowing how to differentiate between good extremism and bad extremism – to begin with! Can you imagine that? That is why there is no other better way to start than to be smart and humble enough to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ simply because it always takes having a heart and conscience to do so! If everyone follows their hearts and conscience to do the right thing whether according to Man’s standards or God’s standard, then there is no need for laws in the first place!
If you so much as ever failed even to fulfill such simple task because of one reason or another, then you can forever FORGET about making this world a better place. You will also NEVER get to experience the pure joy and freedom in speaking out the truth, ugly or not, of anything and anyone based on the simple principle of letting justice seen to be served uprightly and justifiably – in the sight of God, not Man!
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that promoting “moderation” is entirely a bad thing but then, it’s not entirely a good thing either. Do you know why? Because when it comes to cultivating good governance in any given country in the world – if you, as a law-maker, CANNOT set the record to even go beyond the boundaries to do the right thing according to God’s standards to bring about fairness, equality, and justifiable justice for all races in a multiracial society, then no matter how you go about promoting “moderation”, it means nothing but only mere political rhetoric because it is irrelevant in the first place!
Under such circumstances – if you CANNOT even handle the truth on earthly matters by letting your heart and conscience as your guide on the basis of cultivating good extremism, so don’t you think it’s practically a waste of time even to ask you to do the right thing according to God’s standard on heavenly matters to save your soul from eternal damnation? And that’s really bad news here to stay! Is it not?
Whether you agree with me or not, it’s immaterial and means nothing to me, let alone God! But, one thing you can be so sure of is that “moderation” can only so much work in certain areas and to a limited extent unlike giving the best of good extremism that will work in everything and to a great extent simply because it can “kill two birds with one stone” at the same time.
First – it can SAVE your own soul and that of others from having to face the ‘second death’ – if you and all people come together and do the right thing according to God’s standard! Second – it can, most important of all, go beyond boundaries, especially outdated and repressive laws, to bring about fairness, equality, and justifiable justice for all races in a multiracial society.
And that is, of course, if you or anyone, whether as a politician or not, do the right thing based on your heart and conscience and not by relying on any of those outdated and ridiculous laws that are man-made only to suppress people [not protecting] from speaking out the truth, ugly or not, of anything or anyone regardless of race or status!
Under God’s heaven, no laws should exist to curb good extremism – meaning to say those who had good and noble intentions to speak out the truth, ugly or not, of anything or perhaps, even anyone implicated of wrongdoings! Any draconian laws that allowed for detention without charge as the ulterior motive to curb bad extremism, is only good and relevant as a last resort to wipe out only those suspected of involving in terrorism like IS that posed a great danger and threats to national security around the world today!
As such, law-makers should conduct themselves as wise and smart in not only executing their duties to protect the sovereignty of one’s country, but at the same they should not use heavy-handed measures to abuse human’s rights with repressive laws to stop people from speaking out the truth, ugly or not, under the banner of ‘freedom of speech’. They also should know better as law-makers how to differentiate between good extremism and bad extremism so that no one can arbitrarily condemn “all forms of extremism” without even knowing if there was good and valid reason to do so or not!
Don’t you ever think and know why? Of course you don’t – if you have gotten screwed up enough not to have the good extremist guts to become a Christian to know and save your own soul first according to God’s standard before you start thinking about saving the world that is less than likely to succeed – if done in “moderation” that is according to Man’s standards!
But, the devil’s problem is, people especially politicians will promise one thing but always end up acting otherwise – pretty much to people’s amusement! Even more so, the worst thing that ever happened was when they chose to suppress ‘freedom of speech’ with regressive laws. Understandably, that’s the most easy way out for them to shut people up for fear of themselves being implicated of wrongdoings than to act as mature and grown-up gentlemen to deal with it – like all ‘men-of-principles’ always do!
Can we see, or are we too blind to see that we are practically under the control of the devils to wreak havoc and chaos back on ourselves? Can you imagine humans bashing one another even over doing what’s right in the sight of Man, let alone God? Is there nothing we can do, even though God had already provided us Jesus as the one and only SOLUTION to the problem of sin, death and the devil?
People are definitely going to face the ‘second death’ as long as anyone continues to refuse and reject God’s call to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’! To obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ is not only about salvation and eternal life – it is actually God’s way to help us bring back our heart and conscience as our guide to keep us from getting worse than ever in everything that matters to Him! This is what most people had failed awfully to understand the underlying nature of obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’!
So, if anyone especially Christians, asking such a harmless question like, “what is God’s mirror of truth”, under the banner of ‘freedom of speech’ with the aim to bring back the heart and conscience in everyone to stand up and speak out the truth, ugly or not, of anything or anyone, still, it will highly likely turn out as an insurmountable task for many others, especially those DUMB and DUMBER ones who always like to act like “smart people” but cannot even tell something as easy as who the one true Almighty God is – to begin with!
If people, whether Muslims or not, are not wise and sensible enough to know and understand anything about God’s will and plan on earth that one can see in God’s mirror of truth and above all, what He had done through Jesus for the sake of everyone that it took the best of good extremism in having 100% love and compassion to make it all possible; how the devil then can all those DUMB and DUMBER ones ever understood what God’s mirror of truth is, let alone know and understand what the one true Almighty God means to us, or we Him?
What people normally don’t see is that no matter how bad and evil humans have become, God had NEVER forsaken nor ever abandoned humans to die the ‘second death’ without ‘Hope of Salvation’. In fact, God made it possible for ALL humans to come back on the correct path to reconcile with Him to the point of having sacrificed His only begotten Son, Jesus to die on the cross so that He could be exalted as the one and only Mediator [not moderator] entrusted with the divine power to absolve our sins for us! That is why there is power in the name of Jesus according to Acts 2:38!
And this is all because of God’s extreme love and compassion for humans that He created in His image. Yet, most people had up until today never ever appreciated it, let alone do the right thing according to God’s standard – save only Christians! So, any of those laughable claims made about Jesus having “married” Mary Magdalene is nothing but blatant lies and deceit from those who are ant-Christ!
What’s more – God, having had given the best of good extremism to send His only begotten Son, Jesus to deliver us from the curse of sin, death and the devil was so clearly and profoundly proclaimed in John 3:16. And going by such divine standards, it was obvious enough that God had proven beyond reasonable doubts He had not given up on humans yet. So, what more do we want from God that He has not given?
Instead, we should ask ourselves, what have we given God that He does not want? Have you reciprocated His graciousness and mercy to SAVE even your own soul from eternal damnation? Can you say doing exactly this is something He does not want? All He ever wanted was for us to ‘come home’ to Him through Jesus, spiritually safe and sound in the kingdom of heaven – just the same as all earthly fathers and mothers ever wanted the same for their sons and daughters to always come home in one piece, not in many pieces or missing parts! Do you have ears, yet not hear, eyes yet not see and minds, yet not think?
So, having made ‘Hope of Salvation’ available for ALL of us through Jesus under the New Covenant and to give us the ‘second chance’ to ‘come clean’ with Him was a good and valid reason for us to reciprocate His graciousness and mercy to SAVE our sorry butts from the curse of sin, death and the devil by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ which is according to God’s standard, not Man’s!
Have you done that yet? And will you? I can bet beyond 100% and win effortlessly because waiting for you to have the ‘sense and sensibility’, let alone had the heart and conscience to ‘come clean’ with God is not going to happen! You are not going to prove me wrong either, especially if you are an anti-Christ whether knowingly or unknowingly because of having gotten screwed up by man-made religions!
As such, it’s so clear to see that only Christians can tell the reason God made it all possible to SAVE humans from eternal damnation was because God trusts and have faith in those who still have the heart and conscience to do the right thing according to His standard. Have you a heart and conscience thus far?
However, this can only happen as soon as we understood what good extremism is. So, do you or do you still not understand what good extremism is that can SAVE our sorry butts from the curse of sin, death and the devil as well as it can STOP bad extremism from spreading its wings and so making it possible for us to “kill two birds with one stone” with God’s help?
So sorry to tell you the ugly truth – again! Until you have the ‘sense and sensibility’ or the heart and conscience to ‘come clean’ with God by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ just as Jesus became obedient to His Father in heaven until death on the cross, really, you DO NOT understand what good extremism is and that it can SAVE your sorry butt from the curse of sin, death and the devil! And that it can also make this world a better place for everyone to live! But then, so sorry to tell you this – something so good like this is not happening because people are still so bloody blind to see!
Because people do not choose to do the right thing according to God’s standard, so that is why there will NEVER be peace and harmony on earth – till doomsday! And as long as people are still ‘slaves to sin’ and not let Jesus ‘break their chains’, they will not be set free even unto eternity!
And because of God’s extreme love and compassion to SAVE us from eternal damnation, it should have inspired us to ‘make a change’ and made haste to have REPENTED even faster than the “Fast and Furious” sequels simply because what God did for the sake of us was nothing better than the best of good extremism to SAVE our sorry butts from the curse of sin, death and the devil!
Probably, you wondered why I kept repeating the same thing about the curse. Well, there was, of course, a good and valid reason to do so. Imagine – if everyone was doing the ‘same but right thing’ according to God’s standard, don’t you think it would have made a world of difference when the whole world started following in the footsteps of Jesus to sacrifice and always ready and be willing to die for one another to SAVE the world instead of killing one another to break the world apart – like what those bad Muslim extremists are doing today?
But first, you must start by saving yourself and the only way to get out of the curse is to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ before you can get the positive willpower and strength from God to save others from the curse! So you can forget about “practicing” all those man-made “religious laws” and “rituals” that will NEVER ever find favor in the sight of God because if they did, God would NEVER have needed to send and sacrifice His only begotten Son, Jesus to SAVE our sorry butts from the curse of sin, death and the devil! Don’t you ever think – logically and sensibly?
Also, by having raised Jesus from the dead, it was a good and valid reason for God to do the same thing for those who have obeyed the ‘Gospel of Jesus’. In having done so, God had proven beyond all reasonable doubts He had already given us humans ‘Hope of Salvation’ to live beyond earthly death! And so that only means one thing – anyone and everyone shall have the promise of eternal life – provided we still have the ‘sense and sensibility’ or better still, the heart and conscience to ‘come clean’ with God and do the right thing according to His standard to earn it.
Otherwise, it is better off you go back to doing the mundane same and lame thing to fly kites, play computer games or better still, smoke like nobody’s business till doomsday!
So, who the devil says, “all forms of extremism” including that of God in John 3:16 be condemned as nothing good enough to counter bad extremism originated from Islam? Whether as a Muslim or not, you should have asked this question: How can anyone, if ever had the ‘sense and sensibility’, would still “respect” and “tolerate” something so screwed up such as the violent and hatred teachings of the Prophet Muhammad found written in the book of Surah that will do more harm than good – till doomsday?
There has to be something seriously wrong with people somewhere to embrace such evil teachings to kill innocent people suspected as “kafirs” [infidels] such as the Jews and Christians! No wonder Jesus too, have no qualms, to say people ever kept living in ‘faithless and perverse generations’ because they don’t even know, let alone understand what ‘believing-is-seeing’ [FAITH] means!
But too bad, God’s extreme love and compassion to SAVE humans from eternal damnation had become like a rose trampled on the ground and worse than ever is, even now it’s getting condemned as “another form of extremism” that not surprisingly, those “educated” ones knew nothing about what good extremism was that could have SAVED their sorry butts from the curse of sin, death and the devil – long time ago! Instead, they would rather have an appetite for “moderation” that is nothing but only utter irrelevance when it comes to do the right thing according to God’s standard!
How sad it is to have noticed that there was never any remorse displayed in humans for a long time now – save only Christians!
The reason I said “moderation” is out of the question in solving bad extremism is because God too, expects us to give the best of good extremism even in reciprocating His graciousness and mercy! Tell me, how the devil can you ‘come clean’ with God half-heartedly as in “moderation” and then, expect God to forgive you wholeheartedly in the best of good extremism? Who the devil do we think we are to bargain with the ‘Big Boss’ up there?
And why the devil do we humans always do such frivolous and hypocritical things in the sight of God? There is only 1 reason – humans have gotten badly screwed up in the head by the devil to worship idols, earthly riches and glory until we have lost our ‘sense of direction’ and with no ‘Hope of Salvation’ to the point where we have no qualms in forsaking and abandoning our Creator and worse, even blaming Him for all the pain and sufferings we humans actually brought upon ourselves when we, either violated God’s rule of law or Nature’s rule of law, and failing awfully to ‘come clean’ with Him 100% by doing the right thing according to His standard!
So, not surprisingly, it is us humans who are always forsaking and abandoning our Creator instead! And of course, this is nothing new in the history of mankind. In fact, biblical history had attested to it that even those ancient “Israelites” who were once the chosen people of God, had on countless occasions rebelled and abandoned God to go back to worshiping idols and indulging in waywardness, even after having been delivered from slavery in Egypt by Moses whom God had chosen and entrusted to carry out such mammoth task that could have been impossible to materialize without God’s divine power to help him.
Perhaps, let’s fast forward to the time when Jesus walked the earth, then we can see what actually happened. Even at such crucial time when God sent Jesus to fulfill a prophecy foretold by the prophets such as Isaiah and Jeremiah that the Son of Man shall come to atone for the sins of mankind; still until today, those orthodox Jews, are pretty much staying as ‘stiff-necked’ as ever like those ancient Pharisees priests and Jews in rejecting Jesus even when knowing and reading the scriptures daily about the prophecy of a Messiah to come and that the prophecy had already come to pass for nearly two thousand years ago!
Yet, they failed awfully to see God’s promise of eternal life made possible by the sacrifice of Jesus and the shedding of His blood under the New Covenant. And the worst thing that ever happened was – they still blacklisted Jesus as a “false prophet” for claiming Himself as the Son of God!
For this reason, the Jews today and ever since after Jesus’ death and resurrection, can no longer be considered as chosen people of God under the New Covenant. In fact, the Bible decreed that anyone regardless of race or creed shall become one of the ‘sons of God’ or ‘children of God’ after having REPENTED of one’s sins by having obeyed the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ as espoused by Jesus in Matthew 28:16-20!
So, that obviously only means one thing – it is with no exception that those orthodox Jews today also need to do the same should they ever clamored to become the ‘sons of God’ or ‘children of God’ in the kingdom of heaven! By right and according to the Bible, they actually no longer could enjoy the special privilege as chosen people of God.
Why? That’s because, after Jesus’ death and resurrection, their “special rights” as chosen people of God had expired and no longer given anymore according to God’s rule of law under the New Covenant sealed by the ‘Blood of Jesus’.
Again, that also simply means – they too, like Gentiles and everyone else, have to earn it by trusting and having enough faith in God to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ to have eternal life under the New Covenant. Why? This is simply because the way to become forgiven and saved from the curse of sin, death and the devil under the Old Covenant is no longer binding after the Messiah, whom Christians knew and believed was Jesus, had already come to fulfill the prophecy foretold!
If they [orthodox Jews] ever failed to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ to become Christians under the New Covenant, they too, shall not inherit the kingdom of heaven and shall face eternal damnation – like it or not! That is the gospel truth they too, like Muslims, cannot handle!
Under no circumstances in the New Covenant will they be treated, or recognized as “chosen people of God” anymore because they have taken God for granted for far too long in failing to ‘come clean’ with Him to REPENT even when it was God’s last straw in having sent His only begotten Son, Jesus to SAVE them from the curse of sin, death and the devil!
Undeniably and historically speaking – they are history! If that is the case, they should have known better long time ago that it was better off that they got themselves converted to Islam – if they still continue like Muslims do, to reject Jesus whom God had already EXALTED highly in Philippians 2:5-11! If not, they are as ‘outdated’ as those 1.7 billion Muslims around the world and together with more DUMB and DUMBER ones about to end up as anti-Christ in this new millennium – if they too, failed to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’!
Ironically, the foretold prophecy of a Messiah did happen and right under the nose of those ancient Pharisees priests and Jews. Yet, they downright rejected Jesus to the point of having accused Him of speaking “blasphemy” against God and finally crucified Him. In having done so, henceforth, they not only having turned a blind eye to the prophecy foretold by prominent prophets such as Isaiah and Jeremiah, but the worst of all worse things that ever happened was, they betrayed God by having rejected and killed Jesus because they were too bloody blind to see Jesus as the Messiah in “flesh and blood” there and then when He had proven beyond all reasonable doubts He was sent by His Father in heaven to do His Father’s will on earth, because of having had the divine power to do miracles as proof!
Unless and until they, orthodox Jews and Muslims alike, quickly make up their minds to ‘make a change’ and do the right thing according to God’s standard to obey the ’Gospel of Jesus’, whatever “religious laws” and “rituals” they have practiced from generations to generations will NEVER ever find favor in the sight of God – whether they believe it or not and much less like it or not! This is what God’s mirror of truth is and they will only see clearly – if ever they were smart and humble enough to do the right thing according to God’s standard!
But too bad, they failed awfully to do so. As a result, they will never ever see and understand what God’s mirror of truth is because they are not Christians – to begin with!
And this happened all because they, orthodox Jews in particular failed awfully to TRUST and have FAITH in their own God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. As such, they radically and religiously did not believe God was doing everything possible to SAVE them from the curse of sin, death and the devil that, under the New Covenant, they too, have to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ like everyone else that even John the Baptist made it so clear with what he testified in John 1:19-28! So they [Jews] can no longer act as though God owed them a big favor!
It was understandable if those orthodox Jews failed awfully to understand that, under the Old Covenant of God, it was no longer possible to save them from the curse of sin, death and the devil! That’s why, God had often times sent prophets to tell them to get ready to ‘make a change’ but then, most prophets ended up getting persecuted or killed including even Jesus, the Son of God, because of their [Israelites] failures to REPENT of their sins and do the right thing according to God’s standard!
Instead, they had gone even further astray from God until today – so what hope is there to tell them to do the right thing according to God’s rule of law under the New Covenant when they still do not recognize, let alone accept Jesus as Christ and Savior?
However, it is stranger than strange that Muslims yet ‘copied’ the same mistake those orthodox Jews made in rejecting Jesus as Christ and Savior and worse, turn around to kill them [Jews] as instructed by the Prophet Muhammad in the book of Surah in the Koran, just because they do not abandon Judaism and yet, not ever embraced Islam at the same time. Tell me – even if you have to kill me, do you think I would “buy” the things that you ‘copied’ from me? Again, who the devil are you kidding here, mate?
You see, what those “religious laws” and “rituals” of Islam could only so much do were only pointing out to us that we are sinners as exactly as what Romans 3:23 did but that was even before the Prophet Muhammad founded Islam! If you ever thought washing your hands and legs 5 times a day can cleanse you of your sins, then you have nothing better to do than to fool yourself 5 times a day and every day of your life – till doomsday!
NO ONE can, even if it’s according to Man’s standards, “save” oneself from the curse of sin, death and the devil by observing all such “religious rituals” that can do NOTHING other than bluffing oneself into oblivion! For example, if you ran a red light, it only meant you have violated a traffic law and done something wrong. So if you get caught in the act, you only get a “ticket” to pay a fine or something, right? But then, even after having paid the fine to redeem yourself of the offense, still, it does not mean it will definitely stop, let alone “save” you from ever committing the same offense again, does it?
Now, if you put the same example of committing such offense under man-made “religious laws”, it’s the same old story – you cannot cleanse yourself outside even by washing 10 or 100 times a day because doing this, still, it will not cleanse you of your sins inside! It still does not change the fact that you and everyone is still a sinner according to the Word of God in Romans 3:23 and Romans 6:23!
Our sins had to be dealt with according to God’s rule of law under the New Covenant made possible by Jesus, not by Man’s standards under those “religious laws” and “rituals” that are actually only ‘smokescreens’ to keep people from knowing what God’s mirror of truth is! Savvy?
So that only means – even by observing those laws, whether religious or not, still, it cannot save us from sin – it only tells us we have SINNED! To come out with more laws, whether religious or not, it does not mean people will commit less sins or completely stop committing sins to become sinless and perfect! Perhaps, if you check out Romans 4, it could help to enhance your understanding about the righteousness between faith and works.
Take such example as the “hudud laws” where those “self-righteous” and “holy” Muslims are contemplating to carry out in some developing countries or worse, having ‘fanatically’ implemented in other Islamic countries that, under such “religious laws”, if any Muslim get caught committing the sin in stealing would have gotten one hand chopped off – if convicted in the Sharia court!
But, have they ever asked the sensible question – what if the same person committed the same sin more than 2 times but only got the most, two hands to get chopped off? Where the devil can he produce the “third hand” or the “fourth one” for those “religious clerics” to chop it off based on their religious “hudud laws”? If they can’t, then how the devil can they think such ridiculous laws make sense in the first place?
Okay, for argument sake, even if the same person without both hands to steal anymore, still, he has the “third leg” that is capable of committing another sin of “stealing” another person’s wife or girlfriend for that matter. Can he not? Can you guarantee he will not? But if he did, should his “third leg” also get chopped off? But the devil’s question is, will the “hudud laws” also be applied to those “religious clerics” too? Should any one of them also get caught in the act, will the same punishment be equally meted out on them?
And also, what happens to other “educated, moderate and democratic Muslims” having one way or another, “unintentionally” watched naked men and women enjoying sex in the Internet, in the office, or in privacy and in the comfort of their own home? Will they be so “righteous” and “holy” after all – to gouge out their own eyes according to the punishment laid out in their religious “hudud laws”? If not, who the devil are they kidding here – Lucifer?
That is why – only Jesus, EXALTED by His Father in Philippians 2:5-11, is the ‘one and only’ one who can SAVE us by chopping off our, ‘slaves to sin’ chains once and for all that had kept us in bondage and having suffered all these while in silence unknowingly and spiritually inside because of the curse of sin, death and devil!
For this reason, we cannot be ever so DUMB and DUMBER enough to “believe” that by practicing all those man-made “religious laws” and “rituals”, like washing our hands and reciting the monotonous “prayer” five times every day can somewhat “save” our sorry butts from the curse of sin, death and the devil, can you? If you think you can, of course, you “can” because it’s according to Man’s standards, not God’s! But then, who the devil are you kidding 5 times a day and everyday – till doomsday?
As sinful humans, we always make the same mistake, not twice, but over and over until we even lost count and that is because we are all ‘slaves to sin’ so much so we will NEVER ever be able to break free from! But, under the New Covenant, the ‘Blood of Jesus’ shed on the cross can exactly do the divine job to redeem us of our sins by breaking the chain that held us captives as ‘slaves to sin’ – if only we REPENTED by obeying the ’Gospel of Jesus’ which is according to God’s standard and not Man’s!
That means, under the New Covenant, the law shall be written in our hearts and conscience. So, by accepting Jesus into our hearts, the Holy Spirit that Jesus promised to anyone who obeyed the ‘Good News’ of His death and resurrection, will help and guide us to always think, believe, and do the right thing according to God’s standard – not Man’s! Do you copy or not?
That is why, even God had no choice but to send His only begotten Son, Jesus to make it all possible to SAVE our sorry butts from the curse of sin, death and the devil and yet we still are so bloody blind to see what the one true Almighty Yahweh had done for our sake! So if we still are so ‘stiff-necked’ enough not to do the right thing according to God’s rule of law under the New Covenant to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’, then don’t you think we are worthy of the ‘second death’ because of having thrown away the ‘second chance’ that God gave us through the sacrifice and death of Jesus on the cross?
But now, it looks like history is repeating itself and getting out of hand because even Muslims who have nothing to do with the Jews and Jesus, are doing the same but so lame thing in accusing Jesus of having committed the “crime” of speaking “blasphemy” against God for having claimed Himself as the Son of God. So, no thanks to the Prophet Muhammad who took advantage of it and made matters worse by calling “true Muslims” to kill “kafirs” [infidels] who are Jews and Christians for not embracing Islam that Muslims always claim as more “superior” than Judaism and Christianity when it is NOT – if it is according to the one true Almighty God’s standard!
For humans to rebel and forsake God is nothing new because humans are always ‘slaves to sin’ and cannot break free from the curse without the divine help from God. And that was the reason God sent Jesus as the Christ and Savior to set us free but we must do the right thing according to God’s standard, not Man’s! Is that still so difficult to understand?
So you can see that is exactly what’s happening in this devil’s world today where people still have no qualms to do ‘the same but so lame thing’ in forsaking and abandoning God even when given the ‘second chance’ to ‘come clean’ with Him through Jesus. And that’s because people still do not realize, let alone believe that Jesus has the divine power to “break every chain” so that everyone can forever be set free from the curse of sin, death and the devil but only provided that everyone is smart and humble enough to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’!
But too bad, this is not the case when by right it should be – if humans have the ‘sense and sensibility’ to tell the difference between what is according to God’s standard or Man’s standards and what is good extremism or bad extremism! Because it’s a man-made problem, people will NEVER be able to break free from the curse of sin, death and the devil as long as they have gotten screwed up by the devil to think, believe and act according to Man’s standards. In other words, the worst of all worse things to happen is getting worse than ever till doomsday as prophesied by Jesus in Matthew 24!
“There is no victory over evil wrongdoings perpetrated – if you cannot, or worse, hampered by repressive laws, to cross the line of the devils to bring them to justice!”
