The Bible Gospel of Jesus, al injil, to Muslims, Arabs, and Islam. Allah has no Gospel like Jehovah offers.

 

ALLAH:

Who is he?
Where did he come from?
Is he the God of the Bible?

 

 

Any wise enemy is better than an ignorant friend.

CHAPTER TWENTY SIX:
Al Injil Ya Al Mohalis, Yitha


The Gospel, Al Injil

 

What is the true Gospel?

To a Muslim, it is many things because Mohammed was so vague on the subject. The five pillars seem to be enough to some Muslims. They are,

1- Declare the faith;
2- Read the Koran;
3- Pray daily prayers;
4- Give alms; and
5- Go on the pilgrimage to Mecca.

The Sixth Pillar (According to some observers) Jihad
To prove this is an unspoken reality, Mohammed said more about Jihad than any other topic in his Hadith.

There is no need for faith in anything or anyone in this kind of Islam. The very word, Islam, means submission, and submitting varies greatly depending on who makes the rules.

Mohammed made salvation very broad in.....

Al Koran, Sura 2:62, Lo! those who believe in that which is revealed to thee, Mohammed, and those who are Jews, and Christians, and Sabaeans-- whoever believeth in Allah and the Last Day and doeth right-- surely their reward is with their Lord, and there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve.

That sounds good on the surface, but the Jews hate Christ, Christians say that Christ is God the Son, Sabaeans worshipped Wadd, the Moon god, and Muslims say that Jesus was not God. Yet, in Al Koran, Mohammed has them all going to heaven for being good and believing in the existence of Allah.

Imam Mohamad Jawad Chirri, Director of the Islamic Center of America in Detroit, says in his book, The Faith of Islam, that the ten commandments are not enough to satisfy Allah's demands on those who want to enter heaven. He gives 44 requirements to please Allah. So, some second thoughts in the last 400 years have caused the Mullahs to update Mohammed's Injil, the Islamic gospel.

Mohammed must have become dissatisfied with his original simple plan for entering heaven, because he later enlarged it in his Hadith.

We quote Maulana Fazlul Karim's,Al Hadis, Book 1, page 97, Hadith 13, Anas reported that the Messenger of Allah said: "Nobody truly believes until I become dearer to him than his parents, children, and all mankind." Attested by Agreement.

So, holding Mohammed in the highest esteem is now essential to entering heaven. Mohammed thus blows away all of his previous conditions, as well as Imam Chirri's 44 requirements, when he says in.....

Al Hadis, Book 1, page 127, Hadith 13, (Abu Omamah reporting), "The believer may have defects, the whole of them (meaning he can sin every sin there is), except breach of trust and falsehood." Attested by Ahmad, Baihaqi Fram Sa`ad-b-Abi Waqqas.

So now a Muslim can sin every sin he wishes but two. This is getting confusing, right?

Page 302

 

Even more interesting is that, according to Mohammed, Hell is not final to the person who goes there, as we see in.....

Al Hadis, Book 1, page 114, Hadith 42 (Abu Sayeed-al-Khodri reporting Mohammed's words), "Every person who has an atom-weight of belief in his heart will be taken out of Hell."

Sin, and the life lived by the Muslim, really are not the final test of the future. The Muslim, or anyone for that matter, can eventually get out of Hell if he can muster up some faith, and Mohammed didn't specify in whom he had to have faith.

Good intentions are a cultural point of honor in the Middle East. Mohammed had a god in Allah who responded to good intentions, even if the good intentions were not acted upon, as in this Hadith:

Narrated in Mosnad Ahmad, #2515, and attested by Saheeh Muslim, #131
"Your Lord, Who is blessed and exalted, is most merciful. If someone intends to do a good deed but does not do it, a good deed will be recorded for him. And if he does do it,
(a reward of) ten to seven hundred or many more times (the reward of the good deed), will be recorded for him. And if someone intends to do a bad deed but does not do it, a good deed will be recorded for him. And if he does do it, a bad deed will be recorded against him or God will wipe it out."

Mohammed plainly thought that good intentions would merit favor with Allah. The Bible makes it very clear that good intentions fall short of the glory of Jehovah God. The Apostle Paul spoke of his frustration with himself, for he had the very best intentions of doing good, but, in his own power, he failed to act upon his good intentions. Now, Mohammed and Allah would say that Paul would receive merit toward salvation simply because of his good intentions. The Apostle Paul refused to trust in his good intentions. He spoke of his need for Jesus Christ to give Paul new life-- life that would deliver him from the need for him to act upon his good intentions and live on a higher plane-- the plane of faith. Thus:

The Bible, Romans 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

It is not enough to believe there IS a God. We must believe that Jesus Christ took our sins away by his death on the cross long ago. Mohammed talked of any small good intention, or good will toward Allah, saving anyone who found this emotion in themselves. What does the Bible say?

The Bible says in James 2:19, Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

Do you suppose that, according to Mohammed's claim, Satan could get into heaven by being sincere and believing in WHO Jesus is? The Bible says that he believes there is a God.

In fact, Mohammed made it clear that a man is not really ever a sinner as we see in.....

Al Hadis, Book 1, page 110, Hadith 32, Abu Hurairah reporting, "When a servant of Allah commits fornication, faith goes out of him. It hovers over his head as a shade. When he leaves the act of fornication, faith returns to him. Attested by Tirmizi and Abu Daud.

In this scripture text of Islam, we have the absolute salvation of every soul who ever lives. You see, a man could be sinning all of his life, blaspheme Allah, and his faith would hover over him like a cloud all of his life. At death, the man would stop sinning, develop sincere good intentions, and his faith would return. As we read before, if he ends up in Hell, the faith which returns to him would deliver him from Hell, and he would go to Paradise. This is cheap religion indeed.

Dear Muslim reader, I did not go through all of this discussion to make you angry or to just make a silly display of Islam. But, I want to show you that Al Koran, the Hadith of Mohammed, and the teachings of the Imams, are all in great contradiction. I have many more such contradictions which I can show you upon request, and I would welcome any private discussion of this with any serious Mullah or Imam. Mohammed claimed that the Bible was not reliable, yet Al Koran was claimed to be without error. The above discussion shows me that, in fact, Muslims cannot possibly know for certain how they can find salvation, and Al Koran and the Hadith violently disagree as to the way of salvation.

The Bible is quite different in its teaching. It makes the way of salvation very simple, very narrow, and very easy to understand. Yet, it is also very profound, because it violates the chief tenant of all world religions regarding salvation. Every religion, including Islam, requires certain works of the follower if he is to reach Heaven or Paradise. Mohammed knew that this works-salvation was in error in one sense, because he had heard about the simple salvation of Christians from the Hanifs like Waraqa, his uncle. That is why he at first required only faith to reach Paradise.

However; Mohammed could not trust that simple plan of salvation for two reasons. First, he could not trust Muslims to leave their sin if he didn't require some works of them for their salvation.

Page 303

 

Second, Mohammed had reduced Jesus to be a mere human, so that left him with no Savior to deliver man from sin. The only answer was to require Muslims to do works for their salvation. Thus, the five pillars, the 7000 Hadith regarding every aspect of life right down to blowing one's nose, and thus; the great contradiction in Islam between works and faith.

To keep from being accountable for this confusion, Mohammed cleverly threatened Muslims not to question this contradiction, only "submit" to his sayings. This is why all of the Mullahs of Islam cannot give one clear answer to the question, "What must I do to be saved?" Nor can the Roman Catholic Church, and all other world religions, for that matter. When one works for his salvation he is never finally sure if he has finished the work. That is the terror of working ones way to heaven.

I now invite you on the most exciting adventure of this book. This will cause the agony of reading about the heritage of Allah to flee away from your mind. If you will follow with me the God of the Bible, in His revelation of the great Plan of the Gospel of Salvation, I can promise you that you will have a final and certain answer to the question, "What must I do to be saved?" I shall begin at the beginning of creation, and I shall show you the glorious future God has provided for you if you will come to Him on His terms. And, I promise you, it will not be difficult to understand.

Before you begin, please pray this prayer,

"Oh God, I am not sure who you are, and I want to know for sure. Have mercy on me, for even the writer of this book is a mere man, and I do not want to trust men. I want to know you in your greatness, and I want to know you as a friend, like father Abraham knew you. Have mercy on me, O God, for I need to know how to be sure I have your salvation for me. Please protect me from devils and Jinn, while I am seriously seeking you, so that I can have a clear mind. By the Name of Yitha, Thank you, and Amen"

The God of the Bible will answer your prayer because.....

The Bible promises you in II Peter 3:9, The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

If you are serious with God, He will reveal the truth to you.

In the rest of this chapter I shall give a great deal of Scripture whenever I make a quote from the Bible. This is because it is illegal in many Islamic countries for a Muslim to have a Bible. This book may be the only place the reader can find the Word of God and the evidences of God's love in the Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ. So please be patient if this chapter seems long. Many readers will appreciate the complete quotes.

THE BEGINNING OF THE GOSPEL

The beginning of the Gospel is in the beginning of the Bible, in the first book, Genesis. If you can get a Bible to read, I suggest you do so. I realize that in many Muslim countries that is impossible, so I will include every text for you to read.

We begin with The Bible, Genesis 1:1, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

It is absolutely essential to your salvation that you believe that everything in this world comes to you from God.

This may seem so basic that you wonder why I include it, but we cannot begin our journey into salvation with anything coming to us from any other source than God. God spoke through the writer of.....

The Bible book, Hebrews, and said in Chapter 11, verse 3, Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Your first step of faith is to believe that everything you see was created by God from nothing but His words.

After God created the earth and all of the plants and animals, He gave His verdict on His own work.

The Bible, Genesis 1:25, And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

God created nothing evil as Allah did. God cannot imagine to do evil. This is why He hates our sin, which is our main problem.

So, where did evil or sin come from? Answer: Satan, or Lucifer, was the first to do evil. He made his choice to rebel against God before the earth was created as we read in.....

The Bible,  Isaiah 14:12, How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer (Satan), son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!  
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:  
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.  
15 Yet thou
(Lucifer) shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.  
16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

Here, some time before the creation of the earth, Satan was judged for his sin and later for his attack on God's creation. Satan was determined to take the place of God. Satan declared a Fatwa or Jihad against God. Satan was created to worship Jehovah God, but he was the first to choose to worship himself. God gives men a choice, and you must choose right now what you will finally believe-- who you will worship. Through Satan's rebellion, evil entered the creation of God. Some religious people claim to worship God, yet they actually worship idols, prosperity, or even themselves. They have the same rebellious heart that was found in Satan.

Page 305

 

The Apostle Paul said of these people in.....

The Bible, Philippians 3:19, Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.

These are not followers of Jesus Christ. That is why you must find true faith only in the Bible.

After God created the earth and the universe, He went on to create one more being who was totally unique from all of the other creatures He had made.

The Bible, Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.  
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.  
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.  
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.  
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.  
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Now, we said a moment ago, that God gives those, whom He creates in His image, a special gift. Oh, the gifts in the creation, which God gave to Adam, was a very precious and delightful gift. God planted a garden, and he gave it to Adam to till and harvest for his delight. But, the choicest gift is the greatest gift God has given to man. In this gift we have the opportunity to turn to God and give him our WILLING thanks, praise, and obedience. In the beginning, Adam was God's personal friend.

Here is how God gave Adam the choice to obey Him,

The Bible, Genesis 2:15, And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:  
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Adam had a very simple choice: Do not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good, and evil, and live forever. Or, eat of that tree, and die. His salvation depended on one single choice, that is, obey God. He had to decide whether he would believe God had the best plan for his salvation, or Adam could decide to disobey and see what would happen.

Page 306

 

THE FALL OF MAN

When Adam was not with his wife protecting her, Satan came to her with a temptation to sin. Here is the account of the day long ago when Adam and Eve made the fatal choice to disobey God's one and only law for them:

The Bible, Genesis 3:1, Now the serpent (Lucifer or Satan in the form of a snake) was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

Satan always tries to make men doubt that God means what He says. "Did God really say such a cruel and harsh thing? Is He not a reasonable and merciful God? Surely He will overlook one small error on your part."

Right now Satan is saying to you, "Come now, you are a good Muslim. Surely there is not that much difference between a Christian and a Muslim. Would the God of the Bible really ask you to leave Islam?" Beware, my friend, of the subtle voice of the serpent.

The Bible, Genesis 3:2, And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

Eve added words to God's words. God never said that Eve could not touch the fruit. Her conscience was working very well by telling her to stay away from the fruit. God has given you a conscience, a voice within you, which will tell you a lot about Mohammed and Allah if you will listen.

The Bible, Genesis 3:4, And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:  
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Satan lies from the beginning. This lie is the favorite of false religions from India and Asia. "You can be a god." It is also the lie of some so-called Christians, like Robert Schuler and the wicked men on religious television. They are the voice of the serpent if they tell you that you can be a god.

The Bible, Genesis 3:6, And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Mohammed said that women have half the brain power of men. If Adam was so wise, why did he leave his wife alone, and why did he eat the fruit. It sounds like his wife was in charge of him, like the wives of Mohammed distracted him.

Page 307

 

The Bible, Genesis 3:7, And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. They were innocent before they sinned, so they didn't know they were naked.

Clothes are a curse which are required to cover sinful people so that they won't lust after one another. It is interesting to notice that the more pagan people are, the more clothes they take off. This is why you must not assume everyone who claims to be a Christian is truly one. If a so-called Christian likes to run about half dressed, you may be sure they are a pagan inside. Stay away from them.

The Bible, Genesis 3:8, And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

When we are in sin, we want to hide. Mohammed kept Allah far from him as an unknowable god. Why? Simply, Mohammed's conscience was impure, and he didn't want his god too close by him to catch him sinning and lusting.

The Bible, Genesis 3:9, And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?  
10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.  
11 And he
(God) said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?  
12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

Mohammed did the same thing with Allah. He told Allah that his wives were driving him mad, so Allah gave a rotation for Mohammed to service his wives. The God of the Bible does not want to hear us blame someone else. We must admit to our sin, or we will not find His salvation.

The Bible, Genesis 3:13, And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.  
14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:  
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Page 308

 

16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.  
17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;  
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;  
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

We see in verses 13-19 that God punished each of those who sinned. The serpent would crawl in the dust, and Satan in the serpent would one day be finally crushed by a "Son" of Eve. That is, Jesus Christ. When He died on the cross and rose again from the grave alive, He crushed Satan's power over man, as.....

The Bible says in I Corinthians 15:55-57, O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

We also see in verses 13-19 that man cannot live forever after he has sinned. This is why we grow old and finally must part with those we love, and it would be the utmost sorrow if there was no hope after physical death. Mohammed gave Muslims the great hope after death of chasing houris (virgin young women) around heaven, peeking through their clothes at their naked bodies, and eating food and guzzling wine nonstop forever.

What puerile mongrel hope! I want to walk in the cool of the day with my God. I want to be free of my lusts. I want to be united with all of my friends so that we may sing praises to God for eternity. As I grow older, I realize that I shall have to part with those I love here, for a while. But, to be with Jesus-- this is my hope after I die. He died in my place to pay for my sins. How could I possibly want to chase naked ladies all over heaven and forget my Savior, as Mohammed suggests?

The Bible, Genesis 3:20, And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.  
21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

There is more here than modesty, which is, of course, very important. Here we see that sin could not be covered by man himself. Mohammed gave no covering for sin because he didn't understand that only blood covers sin. It is said in.....

The Bible, Hebrews 9:22, And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

This means that God had to shed blood in order to cover Adam and Eve's sin, until Jesus could give His blood, thousands of years later, to finally pay the debt. The skins that God required them to wear were to remind them that only God could find a way to cover sin.

Page 309

 

If you reject the Blood of Jesus shed for you outside the gate of Jerusalem, well I must sadly tell you, you will be found covered in the green leaves of Islam, and God will have to send you to Hell. You see, God has made a perfect covering for your sins in Jesus Christ, as.....

The Bible says in Isaiah 53:4-7, Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter...

The prophet Isaiah spoke of the death and "slaughter" of Jesus, 500 years before Jesus lived, and 1100 years before Mohammed lived. Now, who will you believe, and where will you find any other covering for your "naked" soul?

The Bible, Matthew 26:27-28, And he (Jesus) took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Jesus was asking his disciples to never forget His death. He used two symbolic things, bread and the juice of the grape. He said that the grape juice would remind His followers that His precious Blood washed their sins away, and covered their naked soul. This is why Christians have a custom of regularly eating a piece of bread and drinking grape juice, in worship, so that they will never forget the death of Jesus and how important it is.

 

ALL MEN WILL CONFESS JESUS

To show how important it is to have our naked soul covered by the Blood of Jesus, we look at the final judgment of all men. The great factor which will determine our destiny is what we do with Jesus, the Lamb. In speaking of Jesus Christ in heaven in the future, John said, in....

The Bible, The Revelation 21:22, And I saw no temple therein (in heaven): for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

Revelation 21:27, And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Revelation 22:3, And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

This is the Lamb which Isaiah said would be slaughtered for the sins of men. I told you that salvation in the Bible is based upon faith. This is the heart of the faith of Bible believing Christians, and without faith in the Lamb, Jesus Christ, and without believing that His Blood washed away your sin, you cannot go to His Heaven. Again, we read in.....

The Bible, The Revelation 1:18, I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Page 310

 

You may choose to reject The Lord Jesus Christ as your only Savior, and cling to the bloodless works of Islam, the five Pillars, and the seven trips around the Kaaba. If you cling to Islam, you will find in the end that you will be forced to worship Jesus in spite of your rebellion, just before He sends you to Hell. Here is what happens to all who worship anyone other than Jesus Christ.

The Bible, The Revelation 13:8, And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him (the Satanic man), whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

These are the people who leave this life and are judged by Jesus Christ in heaven. They refused to believe in Jesus Christ in this life, and they worshipped someone else. They will be forced to worship Jesus Christ, and then they will be thrown into hell. Please believe this salvation now, and you will not be in this last group. You will become the friend of God.

Let me show you again that you will one day be forced to worship Jesus Christ:

The Bible, Isaiah 45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

If you arrive in heaven without confessing that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, that is, if you do not confess this BEFORE you die, you will be forced to worship Jesus Christ anyway. Then, you will have to go to hell for eternity. It is very serious and dangerous to reject Jesus Christ.

The Bible, Philippians 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Exalt Jesus Christ as Lord now, declare your faith in him alone, and you will be received by him at once, and you will have no reason to fear his wrath against the wicked.

The sons of Adam had to learn to give the right sacrifice to show that they wanted God's salvation, rather than their own works, as we see in

The Bible, Genesis 4:1, And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.  
2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.  
3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.  
4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

No one can worship God and receive His salvation without blood, and the Blood of Jesus is the final sacrifice for man. This is the Gospel, Al Injil!

 

ABRAHAM SHOWS US THE GOSPEL IN HIS FAITH

In Chapter One we saw that Abraham was the father of both the Jews and the Arabs. Mohammed claimed that Allah tested Abraham to see if he would kill Ishmael. This was changed by Mohammed from the Bible account to try to give Ishmael the high place in the Old Testament of the Bible.

The Bible was settled long before Mohammed, and his effort to alter the truth about Ishmael and Isaac, is in the same ridiculous category with his silly blunder of making Mary, the mother of Jesus, the same as Miriam, the sister of Moses.

Here is the true account. The point is not to see if Arabs or Jews are God's favorite. How juvenile! The point is this, God lost the personal fellowship he had with Adam and Eve, so God had to sacrifice His precious Son to get back fellowship with men, including you, as we see in:

The Bible, Genesis 22:1 And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. This "tempting" was not to sin, but to see if Abraham would obey.  
2 And he (God) said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.  
3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.  
4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.  
5 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.  
6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.  
7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?  
8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.  
9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.  
10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.  
11 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.  
12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.  
13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.  
14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.

In his obedience, Abraham was taught that God is merciful. God demands our absolute obedience, but for those who obey by faith, God provides salvation. God also showed that sin has to be covered by a blood sacrifice. As the ram was provided to take the place of Isaac, even so, Jesus Christ is the Lamb who was slain in your place. I trust by now that you see the beauty of God's love for you. Oh, how sad to realize that millions of Muslims have no sacrifice to cover their soul's nakedness and sin. I pray that you will submit to this salvation by faith and obey God's command to come under the blood of Jesus for your covering.

PASSOVER

It is sad that the present hate between the Arabs and the Jews has blinded most Arabs to the beautiful teaching of God through His people the Jews. The historic events experienced by the Jews did not happen to give us the feeling that we are inferior, rather; they are God's way of illustrating how much He loves all mankind. Please join me in a study of God's love as shown in the Passover.

The Jews had been in Egypt for 400 years. When they arrived, as the family of Jacob, they were welcomed by the "Shepherd Kings," who were Ishmaelites from North Arabia who had moved to Egypt. The Ishmaelite Pharaoh was very good to Abraham's grandson, Joseph, and Joseph's father, Jacob. But the black Hamitic Nubians conquered the Ishmaelite rulers of Egypt, and they chased them back to North Arabia. The Nubian rulers hated the Jews because they were of Abraham's godly line. God saw how the Nubians persecuted the Jews, so He gave them the prophet Moses who would lead them out of Egypt.

The night before they were to leave Egypt, God planned to kill all of the first born of every animal and man in Egypt. In order to save the Jews from this terror of judgment, God told Moses of a new and special ceremony which they could perform by faith, and God would "pass over" them at the time of death. Please try to lay down the present, with its hate and bickering between Jews and Arabs, and concentrate on the love of God as you read this. No other story except the death of Jesus shows better how God provides salvation for men.

The Bible, Exodus 12:1-17, And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying,  
2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.  
3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:  
4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.

Page 313

 

5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:  
6 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.  
7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.  
8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.  
9 Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.  
10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.  
11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD's passover.  
12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.
13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.  
14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.
15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.  
16 And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.  
17 And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever.

Historically, I hope that you can see why the Passover is so precious to the Jewish people, but there is a far more important side to this event. The Passover was a picture of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as the "Lamb of God," who took away your sin. Just before Jesus was recognized publicly, and before He began His ministry on earth, the Prophet John the Baptist made it very clear who Jesus was, as we read in.....

The Bible, John 1:29, The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

The passover lamb was the ancient picture of the perfect Lamb, Jesus Christ, who died for your sins, as well as for the sins of the Jews.

The Apostle Paul also made it clear that Jesus was, in reality, the greatest Passover Lamb in person:

The Bible, 1 Corinthians 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

The Passover of this day of the Church of Jesus Christ is Jesus himself. Isaiah, an Old Testament prophet, prophesied the fact that Jesus would be killed as the Passover Lamb:

The Bible, Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

All of these experiences happened to Jesus Christ many years after Isaiah spoke them.

 OBEDIENCE IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE OR GOOD WORKS

The sacrifices, as well as Passover, were required of the Jews of ancient times by God. They had to do them, not to finally cleanse away their sin, but they had to show God that they trusted Him to cover their sins and forgive them. Some Jews began to do the sacrifices as rituals, yet they didn't really love or trust God in any way. They lived wickedly in spite of their sacrifices.

There is a striking example of this problem in the life of Saul, the first king of Israel. He was a handsome man, and the people loved him. He was very humble when he first was anointed to be king by the Prophet Samuel. But over the years he became too confident in his own strength, and he began to change the commands of God to suit his own preferences. I want you to think about all of the Hadith and traditions of Mohammed as you read this story.

I am convinced that Islam is a religion of preferences rather than true faith and obedience, because the Imams and Mullahs are constantly changing the rules to fit their personal preferences and politics. The God of the Bible has only one prefect will, and it is OBEY. Here is the story of Saul's fall.

The Bible, I Samuel 15:1, Samuel also said unto Saul, The LORD sent me to anoint thee to be king over his people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the LORD.  
2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt.

(The Amalekites were Hamitic impostors into the land of Isaac and Ishmael.)  
3 Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.  
4 And Saul gathered the people together, and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen, and ten thousand men of Judah.  
5 And Saul came to a city of Amalek, and laid wait in the valley.  
6 And Saul said unto the Kenites, Go, depart, get you down from among the Amalekites, lest I destroy you with them: for ye shewed
kindness to all the children of Israel, when they came up out of Egypt. So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites.

Page 315

 

7 And Saul smote the Amalekites from Havilah until thou comest to Shur, that is over against Egypt.  
8 And he took Agag the king of the Amalekites alive, and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword.  
9 But Saul and the people spared Agag,
(He was NOT an Arab.) and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them: but every thing that was vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly.  
10 Then came the word of the LORD unto Samuel, saying,  
11 It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following me, and hath not performed my commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the LORD all night.  
12 And when Samuel rose early to meet Saul in the morning, it was told Samuel, saying, Saul came to Carmel, and, behold, he set him up a place, and is gone about, and passed on, and gone down to Gilgal.
13 And Samuel came to Saul: and Saul said unto him, Blessed be thou of the LORD: I have performed the commandment of the LORD.  
14 And Samuel said, What meaneth then this bleating of the sheep in mine ears, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear?  
15 And Saul said, They have brought them from the Amalekites: for the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God; and the rest we have utterly destroyed.  
16 Then Samuel said unto Saul, Stay, and I will tell thee what the LORD hath said to me this night. And he said unto him, Say on.  
17 And Samuel said, When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the LORD anointed thee king over Israel?  
18 And the LORD sent thee on a journey, and said, Go and utterly destroy the sinners the Amalekites, and fight against them until they be consumed.
19 Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the LORD, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight of the LORD?  
20 And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the LORD, and have gone the way which the LORD sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.

This foolish king Saul had deceived himself into thinking he was doing God a big favor by saving animals for sacrifice which God had told him to destroy.

Following the aobove text: Verse 21 But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God in Gilgal. (Saul blamed the people.)

Page 316

 

You cannot stand before God one day and blame Mohammed. You are responsible for deciding which is the true and pure Gospel-- Al Injil of Jesus Christ, or Al Injil of Mohammed. You cannot present your good works of Islam to the God of the Bible. Listen to Samuel's response:

The Bible, I Samuel, Verse 22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.  
23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

"Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice" You cannot find a better plan than to obey God. You cannot find a religion, like Islam, which will impress God. He demands that you obey HIS Injil, His Gospel, his instructions. If you rebel against the glorious Gospel of God and obey Islam, Mohammed, and the Mullahs, then you will have to hear the sad news that the God of the Bible has rejected you.

Here is what He says to you in.....

The Bible, by the prophet Isaiah 1:13, Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

God hates man made religion. And, by the prophet Amos God warns in.....

Amos 5:21, I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.
22 Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.
23 Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.
24 But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.

I do not desire to be harsh with you, but I am bound to God and my conscience to tell you the truth. Your hope is only to obey God, and believe the Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ-- only this will give you peace now and eternal life in the future in Heaven. If you refuse to obey the command of Jesus Christ, to believe His Gospel, He will have to send you to hell with those who love rebellion.

 

JESUS' DEATH AND RESURRECTION

Some of those who acquire a copy of this book in Muslim countries would be killed for having a Bible, so here is the Gospel quoted directly from Jesus and the Bible writers, as God gave it to them. A Jewish leader came to ask Jesus the way of salvation. The man was serious, so Jesus gave him the Gospel in a way that has helped millions, since that day, to understand.

Page 317

 

The Bible, John 3:1, There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:  
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him  
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.  
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?  
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.  
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.  
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.  
9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?  
10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?  

11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.  
12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?  
13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.  
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:  
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.  
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.  
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Page 318

 

You must decide to believe in, or reject, The Lord Jesus Christ. Some, like Nicodemus, believe in Jesus and His death and resurrection at once, and they are saved from Hell and will go to Heaven. Some others demand signs and shows of God's power to convince them.

The signs God gives are not the kind of tricks produced by these fakirs on television's TBN and the 700 Club who claim to perform healings and resurrections of dogs and cats.

Nor are they the signs of the Roman Catholic Church's magicians who claim to produce moving and talking statues of Mary. If a statue ever moves or talks to you, you may be certain that it is a devil doing it. God's sign of salvation is Jesus Christ himself-- period, full stop, end of message. You have to decide if you will believe in Him by faith alone.

Listen to Jesus speaking to doubting Jews:

The Bible, John 6:30, They (the curious Jews who followed Him) said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?          
31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.  
32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.  
33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.  
34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.  
35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.  
36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.
37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.  
39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.  
41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.  
42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father
and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?

Page 319

43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.  
44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

(Do you feel the Father drawing you to Jesus? Do not resist!)

45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.  
46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.  
48 I am that bread of life.  
49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.  
50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.  
51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.  
52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?  
53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.  
54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.  
55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.  
56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.  
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.  
58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.    
60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?  
61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?  
62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

Page 320

 

This is where the Roman Catholic Church has brought in ancient pagan notions that men can eat their god. The early Catholic teachers, in about 400 AD, were deceived by the custom in pagan Egypt and Babylon of baking bread in the shape of a god and eating it. They thought that Jesus Christ meant that He wanted them to actually eat His physical flesh. Of course, there is no place in the Bible where we are told that the disciples of Jesus gnawed on Jesus' arms or legs to get salvation. You must stay away from Catholic priests and their silly superstitions if you wish to find the truth. After Jesus rose from death and the grave, none of those who saw Him alive tried to chew a piece out of Him, or bite off His toe.

In verse 63 above, Jesus makes it very clear that His physical flesh is just like every other man's flesh. The difference with Jesus is the spirit of Jesus. Because He never sinned, His flesh was without sin, and when He died, He was a sinless and perfect sacrifice for us sinners who cannot pay for our sins with our wicked flesh. To be saved from Hell, we must believe that Jesus was the complete sacrifice in His body, soul, and spirit. Believing this is "eating" His flesh in the spiritual sense.

This is why true Christian believers eat a memorial of a piece of bread and drink grape juice at some of their gatherings. This act of worship was required by Jesus so that Christians would never forget that His actual body and blood had to be sacrificed for their sin. Even the eating of this bread cannot save a person, for it is simple food and drink. Holy acts do not save anyone. It is faith, or believing in Jesus, that saves men.

We continue in The Bible, John 6:64, But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.  
65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

You see, Jesus makes the Gospel both easy and difficult. It was easy for Nicodemus to understand, as we saw in John 3. In the present text it is very hard to understand. Jesus wants to make a clear distinction between those who come as Nicodemus, and those who demand signs, tricks, and miracles.

The Roman Catholic Church comes the second way.  They claim that a sinful man can raise up a bit of bread, mumble magical religious words, and turn the bread into Jesus' flesh. The poor Catholic followers believe this silly story, and they must go to Hell for it. They can repent of this blasphemy and come by faith in Jesus Christ, as Nicodemus did, but few of them do. How sad.

 Page 321

 

When Pope John Paul II died, the Catholic leaders looked for a Cardinal to become Pope. The new Pope certainly will take the title of Jesus, Alter Cristos. The Mullahs of Islam will be deceived by this event, and they will marry Islam to the Roman Catholic Church. The great lie of unity in religion will convince many Muslims that they are one with these Roman Catholic vipers. Dear Muslim friend, please consider the claims of Jesus before Satan draws you into the snare of one-world religion..

If you are willing to come to Jesus by faith alone, then you can come as Nicodemus, and you can be saved and receive eternal life very easily. If you are full of questions, doubt, and rebellion, then Jesus makes it very hard for you, so that you will have to completely reject Him. It's up to you friend. Believe by faith or reject by doubt.

The Bible, John 6:67, Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?  
68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.  
69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.  
70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?  
71 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve (disciples).

Will you believe the Gospel as it was given to Nicodemus, or will you reject it, mock at Jesus offer of salvation, and go to Hell? If you feel God drawing you to the Gospel, do not resist, for this is His loving plan for you. The Spirit of God is working in your heart, and you should submit by faith to Jesus Christ.

If you believe that Jesus Christ covered your sin by His death and resurrection, and, like Peter above, you are "sure," then turn your back to Mecca at this time, and pray, in the Name of Jesus, and tell God, El Elyon, that you believe His Gospel. As you pray, give thanks to The Lord Jesus Christ for His glorious and generous gift to you. Simply pray to God in your own words as your loving Father in heaven.

If your friend gave you a gift, would you insult him by refusing it? No, and you would be sure to thank him. Jesus Christ has been your best Friend, for He bought you the most precious gift-- eternal life in heaven. Take it now.

THE GOSPEL TO THE CHURCH AT PENTECOST

After Jesus rose from the grave and death, He was seen of many people, and then, as His friends watched Him ascend into the clouds, He went back to heaven. Fifty days later, as the disciples were in a room praying, God the Holy Spirit came into Jesus' followers with power. Miracles were done, and they began to preach the Gospel of Jesus, who was alive in Heaven. This was the same Gospel which had to be believed by faith, and many thousands believed it.

(My thoughts are in parenthesis and are not the Word of God.)

The Bible, Acts 2:1, And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.    
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.  
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.  
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost
(Old English for the Spirit of God), and began to speak with other tongues
(known languages from all over the Middle East which were understood by those standing around them), as the Spirit gave them utterance.  
5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.  
6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?  
8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?  
9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,  
10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,  
11 Cretes and Arabians
(among the first to believe in Jesus' death and resurrection were Arabs), we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.  
12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?  
13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.

(There are always those who will mock at the Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ. I hope you are not one of them.)
14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:

Page 323

 

15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.  (9 AM)  
16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;  
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:  
18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:    
19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:  
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:  
21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

This is what you must do now if you want to receive the blessing of God and eternal life. Again, I stress strongly, there are only two groups of "believers." Some believe that Jesus was the perfect sacrifice from God, who died for their sins, and rose from death to give them eternal life and Heaven.

The second group mock and demand more and more signs. Like Ahmed Deedat, some unbelievers claim Jesus was a bastard, while others in the second group try to say that Jesus was only a good prophet, and that Mohammed was needed to give the rest of the Gospel. This kind of reasoning is rejection of Jesus.

We continue in the passage above:

The Bible, Acts 2:1, 40 And with many other words did he (Peter) testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward (rebellious) generation.  
41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.  
42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.  
43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.  
44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;  
45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.  
46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,  
47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

(This is the beginning of what is called "The Church.")

Page 324

 

You can see how people are changed by believing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. These Jews, in the first church, would be very good neighbors and friends, right? Well Jesus can change anyone who comes to Him by His Gospel. It matters not what evil things you may have done-- He paid for ALL of your sins by His death. Here are the words of Peter which show that Jesus is the last prophet. There is nothing in the Gospel which will allow Mohammed in, not one word.

The Bible, Acts 3:19, Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.  
20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:  
21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

Until Jesus returns to this earth, there will be no other prophet. You will have to decide if you will believe the written Word of God, without a living prophet standing before you. The bold print you have been reading is the Word of God, and that is all you and I have as revelation. Mohammed was not satisfied with the written Word. Mohammed listened to his wife, which is half a witness by Islamic Sharia, and he went to a cave outside of Mecca and received a message from Satan. He later admitted that the spirit he saw was Dajjal, though he also claimed it was the angel Gabriel. The Bible makes it clear that the message of the prophets was closed by the Apostle John. Here is the last chapter, Sura, of the Bible.

The Bible, Revelation 22:18, For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

The Hanif, Waraqah, told Mohammed about the Gospel, but Mohammed insisted on inventing his own gospel, without a living resurrected Jesus. Mohammed even claimed that Jesus asked Mohammed to pray for Him. This is where you end up if you reject Christ's Gospel, and this rebellion will take you right to Hell. I pray that you will believe on The Lord Jesus Christ and be saved.

The Bible, Acts 4:8, Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost (the Spirit of God, El Elyon), said unto them.....

Acts 4:12, Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Some years later, the Apostle Paul was reviewing the Gospel to one of the churches in Greece, and this will give you the Gospel in a brief and clear way.

The Bible, I Corinthians 15:1, Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;  
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.  
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;  
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:  
5 And that he was seen of Cephas
(Peter), then of the twelve:
6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep

(they died).

Page 325

 

7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.  
8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.  
9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.  
11 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.

The Grace of God, El Elyon, the Merciful, calls to you now. Will you believe His Gospel? The Apostle Paul said that he was not "meet," or worthy, to be saved by God. But then Paul rejoiced in the fact that God saved him in spite of his sins. Paul was a murderer, yet God saved him and washed his sins away because the Blood of Jesus Christ was shed for Paul.

 

REPENT AND BELIEVE

Do you remember how we said that Adam had to make only one simple choice. Adam would have eternal life if he obeyed God and avoided eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. He made the other choice and ate the forbidden fruit. He lost his hope of eternal life, and he had to die physically and spiritually. It would have been fair for God to simply toss Adam into Hell at once, but Adam received Grace when God made a sacrifice of an animal to cover Adam's sins. What a fool Adam would have been if he had refused to wear the skin of the animal. God wanted Adam to remember that God made a sacrifice for Adam's sin.

God also made a promise to Adam that He would send a future perfect sacrifice, in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ's death, and the shedding of His precious Blood on the cross, paid Adam's sin debt, my sin debt, and your sin debt. The resurrection of The Lord Jesus Christ, after three days in the grave, assures you that God also will raise you up one day into His heaven in eternal life.

There is no sin against your name in heaven. Jesus paid it all, that is, the price of your salvation. He died in your place on a hillside outside of Jerusalem. Now, there is just one simple, but very profound thing, you must do to claim this salvation. Do this one thing, and you will be saved from Hell. Here is the answer from the Bible to a man who asked Paul how to receive salvation.

The Bible, Acts 16:30, (The man) brought him out and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
31 And they
(God's Apostles, Paul and Silas) said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Page 326

 

Does that sound too simple? Mohammed called for faith, but the prophet of Mecca made a fatal mistake, as do all of the world's false religions. He attacked the Person of The Lord Jesus Christ. He said that Jesus did not die for your sins and that he did not rise from death to live again. Mohammed showed that it is possible to believe much of the Bible account about the life of Jesus and go to hell anyway. Do you see why Islam has no hope for you? Mohammed obliterated the only way God has given for you to be cleansed of your sin and restored to fellowship with God.

Your biggest stumbling block right now will be your many years of hearing, from the Islamic Mullahs, all of the ways to work for God's approval. You will begin searching around for something else to add to simple faith in Jesus Christ's work for you. He finished all the work of getting you salvation. Jesus paid it all. There is nothing for you to do but believe it.

If you succeed in adding even one thing to the simple act of faith, in Jesus for salvation, that one act of good works will void God's Grace to you, and you will go to hell. This is a very serious thing, and God warns you exactly what he thinks of anyone who does good works to earn Salvation:

The Bible, Isaiah 64:6, But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses (our good works) are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. In another place,

The Bible, Titus 3:5, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost (the Spirit of God).

God insists that you receive His gift of salvation by faith alone.

God has given you a very powerful and simple way to show your faith. This is found in Jesus' answer to men who asked how to receive God's salvation,

The Bible, Mark 1:15, And (Jesus) saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the Gospel.

When a person repents of his sin, he shows God that he knows he has no good works in himself, and he needs God's salvation.

Every Haji pilgrim prays a certain prayer when he arrives in Mecca, "What is thy command? I am here O Allah, for Hajj." Then follows all sorts of running, throwing stones, chanting, and pushing each other around, all at the risk of being trampled under the feet of other mindless zealots, right in the shadow of Allah's Kaaba.

The God of the Bible has given a command which cannot be based upon a Hajj, or any other good works. Also, it is personal between you and God himself, and it does not result in your being caught in a mob of frenzied men who are all trying to outdo each other in zeal.

The following verses will show you how this act of repentance of your sin leads directly to faith in Jesus Christ:

The Bible, Acts 3:19, Repent ye therefore, and be converted (turned around, from your old life, to God's new life for you), that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.

God is willing to blot out your sin if you repent and believe His Gospel.

Page 327

The Bible, Acts 17:30, And the times of this ignorance (your past ignorance) God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

As God commanded Adam not to eat of the fruit of one certain tree, even so God now commands you to repent of your sin. You can get upset, deny that you are a sinner, and go to Hell. Or you can simply agree with God, and admit what your conscience tells you is very true, that is, "I am a sinner, God, and I am sorry that I have sinned against you. I now accept the sacrifice of Jesus to cleanse me of my sin and give me new life." This may sound like a strange thing to you, because Islam does not require you to tell Allah that you are a sinner. But, the God of the Bible insists on hearing this from you.

The Bible, II Corinthians 7:10, For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of
(which means you repent and don't change you mind about it later): but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

The sorrow of the world is the sorrow men feel when they get caught. Mohammed would admit to Allah his faults, when they became known, but Godly sorrow is when a man declares himself to be guilty and throws himself on the mercy of God and Jesus.

Unlike Allah of Islam, who is unknowable in the ultimate, the God of the Bible dearly wants to get back the fellowship He has lost with you. He will not make a fool of you as you confess your sin, and here is His promise to you in.....

The Bible, James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

God lifts up those who are truly sorry they have sinned against Him.

One last warning. If you fail to obey God's command to repent of your sin and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, there is a serious consequence.

The Bible, Jude 1:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

The Bible again, Revelation 20:13, And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

If you refuse to believe in The Lord Jesus Christ now, you will be judged by your works, which we saw in Isaiah before, are "filthy rags." God will not allow such filthy rags into His heaven, so, we continue the last text:

The Bible, Revelation 20:14, And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Page 328

 

Why do you want to stay unclean and sinful? Why continue in the doubts of Islam, not knowing if you have qualified for salvation. The God of the Bible offers you the promise to be clean now and for eternity. Take it. What are you waiting for? I beg you to be reconciled to God, to be His friend for eternity, beginning today.

Turn your back to Mecca and repent, tell Him you are a sinner, and ask Him to keep His promise to remove your sin. I promise you, He will answer your prayer as it is promised by the prophet, John the Apostle, speaking about Jesus Christ in.....

The Bible, John 1:12, But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Again, I beg you in the Name of The Lord Jesus Christ, repent to God, and believe that Jesus died to wash away your sins and rose from death to give you new life- eternal life- right now!

 

IN PARTING

I want to thank you for finishing this book. It could not be a small thing for a Muslim to find that Allah is a pagan deity, that Mohammed was a rather grubby and very ordinary man, and that there is no true salvation in Al Koran and Islam.

If you have set down the Koran and taken up the Bible, if you have turned your back on Haji Allah and Mecca and repented of sin to God, El Elyon, if you have denounced the Prophet Mohammed and trusted only in Jesus Christ, Yitha, for your salvation, please accept my hearty welcome to you into the Family of God, in the Name of The Lord Jesus Christ.

If you would be kind enough to send me E-mail, I would be eager to put you in touch with other Christians who would welcome you into the Christian Faith. You need new friends, since most of your Muslim friends may abandon you.

 

To those Middle Eastern Christians who have read this book:

I beg you, cleanse your mouth of Allah and Isa. Make a covenant with God to call Him one of His Names in the Bible, either in English, Arabic, or Hebrew. As you recall, I suggested El Elyon, but there are other choices, and the Holy Spirit will show you what Arabic Name to use for God and Jesus.

The King James Bible is the only Bible in English which has not been mutilated by those who attack God's Word. The modern versions some folks may give you have as many as 65,000 words of God removed. Reject ALL English Bibles but the King James Version.

Please only read the Van Dyke Arabic Bible, which, except for the name Allah, has been proven to be a true text of God's Word. Simply replace the word"Allah" with the Name "El Elyon."

Page 329

 

Also use the Name Yitha, a truly Arab word, for Jesus. Or, call Jesus by his Hebrew name, Yeshua. It is a very arrogant thing for an Arab Christian to call Jesus "Isa" when the Hebrew name for Jesus is safe and, in fact, his real name. Ethnic considerations at this point are NOT in order. What Arab who is polite refuses to call a Jew by the Hebrew version of his name? So, Jesus is a Jew. Think on that for a while please.

When you come to either "Allah" or "Isa" in your Arabic Bible, simply speak the right Names of the God and the Savior you love. I am certain you will see new power in your life, and your witness will be greatly blessed as you cleanse yourself of these pagan names.

The Bible, II Corinthians 4:6, For God (El Elyon), who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ

Yeshua u al Rub

 

To Christians not from the Middle East:

To my fellow Christians who have stayed with me through this whole book, I ask you, have you been changed by God's Spirit as you have read? If you have a new passion for the souls of Muslims worldwide, then praise God, and let's get on with the task of giving them the Gospel. Find a missionary to Muslims, preferably working independently, who shares your zeal, and begin to pray for him and support him financially. There are such missionaries all over the Muslim world. Be sure they are not using contextualization which God hates, and find out if they are using only one Bible in English and Arabic.

Perhaps you are being called to give the rest of your life wholly to witness to Muslims. Start right now wherever you live, for we now have Muslims all over the world-- one billion of them. Ask God to give you a Muslim friend for the sake of the Gospel of Christ. Why wait for some alleged "patriarch" to give you a pat on the head? You are already under the High Commission of The Lord Jesus Christ to "GO." Let's get on with it.

To you who are still not convinced, or perhaps you hate me by now, that is better than laying this book down in boredom. I have hope for you, and I pray that even you, who at first hate this message, will soon reconsider. I cannot say that I love you personally, for how can one love someone whom he has never seen? But, God loves you, He understands your struggle, and He will give you light if you ask Him for it. Feel free to Send E-Mail, and tell me what bothers you. I shall try to be patient, answer your questions, and supply bibliographical proof of anything in the book.

 

Dear Mullah and Imam:

You are not my enemy. Can I respond to you confidentially? Please Send E-Mail, and I shall be very careful to protect your identity. I shall let you decide if and when you wish to make the glorious leap from Islam into the light of the God of the Bible in Jesus Christ. If you end up refusing the Gospel of Jesus, I shall not embarrass you to your Muslim friends by talking about you. May God give you light.

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT
VISIONS, VISITATIONS, AND SIGNS?

We are hearing of many Muslims having visions and dreams about Jesus. They claim all sorts of things. There is no way to tell if these are true. Also, the Bible tells us that we become Christians by faith in Jesus Christ, not by seeing visions and miracles. This vision business seems to be similar to Sufi stories of visions and ecstatic experiences. It is not the way of coming to Jesus Christ.

The Bible, Hebrews 10:37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

The Bible, Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

The just live by faith, not by sight, signs, or visions.

The Bible, Jeremiah 14:14 Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.

Jeremiah 23:16 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.

Visions and signs were used by God in the early Jewish Church and with the apostles before the Bible was complete. All visions in the New Testament of the Bible are found in Acts and Revelation of John. There is NO instruction by Paul or in the other Epistles about visions.

The Bible, 1 Corinthians 13:8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

The complete Bible has been with us for about 1900 years. Those who desire visions, signs, and miracles will often receive them, but they will not be the work of God. They will be the work of devils, or Jinn.

Muslim friend, stay away from these Christians who promise you visions and signs. Listen ONLY to Christians who open a Bible and show you the truth there. That is God's message to you. All modern day messages from modern prophets are evil and must be ignored.
