“The Jesus of Islam – 202”…Blog. [2/?]
This blog is a… ‘continuing’ discussion… for the position of “The Muslim” or that of “Islam”… and their Belief in “JESUS?” Remember to correctly interpret a… “TERM”… we must all use the same “DEFINTION!” In the “UK” the word… ‘Lou’… is equivalent to the American word… ‘Bathroom.’ There are many other words that need some “Transliteration” and… “NO” I did not say Translation. Here is my blog that will address Bible translations.
First for those… that practice Islam… they need to understand that… “NOT ALL”… that say they are “Christians”… really are! In the same way one can see the conflict between… the “Sunni” and the “Shi’a” Muslims. Each group ‘claims’ that they are the… “True Followers of Mohamed!” With the differences they have and… the killing each other… something is wrong!
Again in the ‘History of Islam’… the ‘Crusades’ by the Catholic Church killed many Muslims. Their thinking is that the ‘Catholics’… are must what it means to be Christian. That is the…“Wrong Thinking”… that they must “First – Overcome!” In ‘True’ Christianity… the followers are… “Truly Born Again by the Holy Spirit!” They ‘completely’ believe the Bible… as Gods’ Truth alone… and… “NOT”… what some church or denomination… says is Truth!
In a 2006 national poll… of over ‘10,000’ = “Preachers, Pastors, Bible School & Seminary Professors”… less than “One Third”… believed in the ‘inherency’ of the Bible. Less than “One Third” held it for the only point of reference for those that call themselves Christian? Something is wrong… when Christians… “Do Not Believe = God’s Word = The Bible!” Many have substituted ‘Entertainment’ in their worship services. ‘Many’ others do not read… from the Bible but simply… ‘partially’ say what it says = without “Chapter & Verse” references!
*** (Matthew 4:4) But He [Jesus] answered and said, It is written, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God."
Can you Imagine… how very confusing it is for a Muslim… then to understand what is meant by Christian? Those of Islam… know their ‘Quran’… better than “Most Christians”… know their Bibles! Even some of the JW’s and other false Christian ‘CULTS’… know there Bibles better! There is ONE Underlying TRUTH… that separates the True Christian… from the false ones. Is Jesus God… and can you take your Bible and ‘defend’ that point?
*** (Isaiah 9:6-7) For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be on His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
(Isa 9:7) There is no end of the increase of His government and peace on the throne of David, and on His kingdom, to order it and to establish it with judgment and with justice from now on, even forever. The zeal of Jehovah of Hosts will do this.
*** (Hebrews 1:5-6) For to which of the angels did He [God] say at any time, "You [Jesus] are My Son, this day I have begotten [Isaiah 9:6-7] You?" And again, "I [God] will be to Him [Jesus] a Father, and He [Jesus] shall be to Me [God] a Son?"
(Heb 1:6) And again, when He [God] brings in the First-born [Jesus] into the world, He [Say] says, "And let ‘all’ the angels of God worship Him [Jesus]."
*** (Matthew 22:42-to-46) saying, What do you think of Christ? Whose son is he? They say to Him, David's.
(Matt 22:43) He said to them, How then does David by the Spirit call him Lord, saying,
(Matt 22:44) "the LORD said to my Lord, Sit on My right until I make Your enemies Your footstool for Your feet?"
(Matt 22:45) If David then calls Him Lord, how is He his son?
(Matt 22:46) And no one was able to answer Him a word, nor did anyone dare from that day to question Him anymore.
Herein is the “Problem”…? How can “Jesus be God”… and still be Man? Jesus is called the ‘Son of Man’ and the ‘Son of God’. He is also the ‘Son of David’ in the lineage of King David. He – Jesus will reign here on earth… for 1,000 years… and ‘restore’ Israel… to its prominence and position. Some will say… how then can He [Jesus] be God. What most ‘do not’ realize is that there is “ONLY – ONE GOD”… yet He, ‘reveals’ Himself… in and through… Three Separate Persons… each called God.
*** (Mark 12:29) And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, "Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord;
*** (James 2:19) You believe that there is one God, you do well; even the demons believe and tremble.
*** (Isaiah 44:6) So says Jehovah, the King of Israel, and His redeemer Jehovah of Hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and besides Me there is no God.
There is NO “Trinity”…! That word is ‘NOT’ in the Bible! There is ‘ONLY’… “ONE GOD”… and His Name is “Jehovah!” No this is not a play on words… perhaps IF you will allow me to Explain…?
In the Essence of the… “One God” of the Bible = He sometimes reveals Himself = to His creation, mankind = in three separate persons = each called God = and yet there is Only One God! As temporal human being = He God = is eternal = and chooses to reveal Himself to us = in these three separate persons = through His completed Word = the Bible.
*** (Matthew 3:16-17) And Jesus, when He had been baptized, went up immediately out of the water. And lo, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting upon Him.
(Matt 3:17) And lo, a voice from Heaven, saying, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
*** (Mark 1:9-10-11) And it happened in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
(Mark 1:10) And immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him.
(Mark 1:11) And there came a voice from Heaven, saying, You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
*** (John 1:31-to-34) And I did not know Him, but that He be revealed to Israel, therefore I have come baptizing with water.
(John 1:32) And John bore record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from Heaven like a dove, and He abode on Him.
(John 1:33) And I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water, that One said to me, Upon whom you shall see the Spirit descending, and remaining upon Him, He is the One who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.
(John 1:34) And I saw and bore record that this is the Son of God.
In each of these… ‘records’ in the Bible… Jesus the Son, the Father God and the Holy Spirit were all present… at one time… in ‘space & time’… at the Water Baptism of Jesus! You may simply believe because it is in the ‘Bible’ and “God said it!” Do you understand “Cyberspace” and how you use a computer to get the information off the Internet? Do you understand the workings and ‘Electronic Architecture’ of the ‘Dual Core Processing Chip’… that runs your computer? Perhaps not… but you “Do Believe: it is real… even though you Cannot Understand it… “Don’t You?” If you did not… you would not use your computer… to connect with others.
*** (2Peter 1:20-21) knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture came into being of its own private interpretation.
(2Pet 1:21) For prophecy was not borne at any time by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke being borne along by the Holy Spirit.
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
*** (Numbers 23:19) God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that He should repent. Has He said, and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken, and shall He not make it good?
*** (1John 5:6) This is He who came through water and blood, Jesus Christ, not by water only, but by the water and blood. And the Spirit is He who bears witness, because the Spirit is the Truth.
Just perhaps now… it is time to stop this discussion so that “YOU”… may simply think and pray about what is here. It will be continued in the next discussion of this title. Just for a quick review…? God is only “One God”… and there are “No Other gods [small-g]!” The Holy Spirit is called “God”… Acts 5:1-to-11… and Jesus is called God… John 8:54-to-58. Please look at those verses as we will discuss them in the next blog.
*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship = toward Your holy temple, = and = praise Your Name = for Your loving-kindness = and = for “Your Truth's” sake; = for You [God] = have magnified = = = “Your Word” = = = ‘Above All’ = Your Name. = [Psalms 119:18 & 1Samuel 3:21 & Deuteronomy 29:29]
"NO”… Real Christian... ‘Fears’, = The Truth = of the Word of God... “Unless”… ‘they are’… Out of … “Obedience & Fellowship” …with ‘GOD’… and with “His Word”...!"
(Micah 2:7) House of Jacob, it is said, The Spirit of Jehovah is limited, if these are His doings. = Do not = My Words = do good to him = who walks uprightly?
