THE CHRISTIAN WALK

he Personality and Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ is contentious among Muslims. Even among pseudo-Christians who do not know the True Lord God Almighty they serve and worship, the Being of our Lord Jesus Christ is not understandable to them. But who Our Lord Jesus Christ is should not be mired in any controversy. Our Lord Jesus Christ said emphatically who He was (is) during His thirty-three years sojourn on this earth. He also reveals Himself to those who are serious, faithful and willing to know Him today. Through the enablement of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Bible, the revealed Word of God Almighty is unambiguous clear on this matter. However, the Personality of our Lord Jesus Christ did not just become controversial today. While the Lord was physically present here on earth, many tags were ascribed to Him: "Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them "Who do the crowds say I am?" They replied: "Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah and still others that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life. "But what about you. He asked: Who do you say I am?" (Luke 9:18-10).
As previously noted, the Personality of our Lord Jesus Christ didn't become contentious in our days only. But how did Peter know our Lord Jesus Christ is the Christ (Savior, Messiah and Deliverer)? Again the Holy Bible recounted the event that led to the answer to Peters' revelation beautifully: "Simon Peter answered: "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God". Jesus replied: "Blessed are you Simon, Son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven," (Matthew 16: 16-17). Consequently, to know who our Lord Jesus Christ was (and is) does not require mental exertion, intellectual thinking, research and earthly knowledge. Only the Lord God Almighty Himself can reveal Himself to man. And Jesus Christ is God Himself. This is the spiritual truth Muslims loathe to hear. They considered it highly blasphemous that the True Lord God Almighty was born by a woman. And they ask; if Jesus Christ is God, why do some Christians call Him Son of God? This too Muslims do not want to hear. Does it mean Mary is God's wife they demanded?
But really; who is this Jesus Christ? The Lord God Almighty Himself? The Son of God, a Great Prophet of God or what? With the Guardian and Guidance of the Holy Spirit Who has called us to embark on this work, the Spiritual answers to all these puzzling mysteries of spiritual truths to the Muslims (and I dare say some nominal "Christians" ) shall be thoroughly and exhaustively thrashed out in this column article this week. However, before we do this, it is germane at this juncture to know what the Qur'an says about our Lord Jesus Christ, because the demon-god known as Allah revealed our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ to Mr. Mohammad Abdallah.
Every Muslim professes belief in Jesus Christ. That was what I-Moshood- was taught in Quranic School in my teens, But if you ask a Muslim which Jesus Christ does he or she believe in, you are likely to hear the Jesus Christ born of the Virgin Mary, who performed many miracles and "died," that is all. How about Jesus Christ who was crucified on the cross, died and resurrected on the third day and now sitting at the Right Hand Side of God Almighty in heaven and will soon come back to judge the world? No, Muslims do not believe in this Jesus Christ but curiously though Muslims believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again to this earth physically in the Rapture to judge the world, The Quran gives three names to our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ. "Issa" is the Arabic translation of Jesus, "Ibn Maryam" meaning, the "Son of Mary and "AI-Masih," which means; the Deliverer, Messiah or Savior: "And remember when the angels said: O Mary! Lo Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a word from Him, whose name is the Messiah, Jesus Son of Mary; illustrious in the world and the hereafter, and one of those brought near unto Allah" (Surah 3:35). The Surah quoted above used the word: Messiah" to describe the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ just as John 1: 41 and John 4:25 described Jesus Christ. "The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, "We have found the Messiah"" (that is, the Christ)." (John 1:41) and "The woman said, "I know that "Messiah" (called Christ) "is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us," (John 4: 25). But the Quran deliberately twisted the real meaning of the word "Messiah" which is a Greek word "Messias" meaning: "an anointed one, usually a consecrated person as a King, priest, Saint or the great deliverer of Israel according to The New Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, The Quran translated the word "Messiah" to mean " a prophet" and since Muhammad told Muslims to believe all prophets, Jesus Christ is simply just one of them.
In Surah 19:22, it was repeated for emphasis that our Lord Jesus Christ is merely a prophet of God like Muhammad: "He (Jesus Christ) was but a servant on whom we bestowed our favor and we made him an example for the children of Israel As for the Son ship of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Quran screamed in Surah 5: 73-75: "The Messiah, Son of Mary was only a messenger, messengers before him had indeed passed away. His mother was a truthful woman. They both used to eat food. See how we have made the message clear, and yet they have turned away." In Surah 5:75, the Quran flatly rejected the idea of a Triune God and pooh-poohed the idea of a Christian's Trinity and in Surah 4: 157, it considered it a heresy to affirm the crucifixion and sacrificial Death and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. "And for their saying, "we have killed the Messiah, Jesus Son of Mary, the messenger of God, they killed him not nor did they crucify him, but it was made to appear to them as such." But the Quran however upheld the miraculous powers of the Son of God, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the Lamb of God and the Redeemer, Hallelujah! And paradoxically, this Quran, a book said to have been inspired by Allah alluded, in Surah 19: 17-27, to the Virgin Birth of our Lord Jesus Christ but chose to call Him the Son of Mary: "And had chosen seclusion from them. Then he sent unto Mary Our Spirit and it assumed for her the likeness of a perfect man." Do you read what the Quran confessed in this Surah? The Quran referred to our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ as a "Perfect Man" but if you have been reading our series in this column so far, you would remember that Mr. Mohammad Abdallah said he wasn't a perfect man and that all Muslims following his teachings should look for the truth, because he Mohammad didn't know the truth but still searching. More so, Mr. Mohammad warned all his followers that he didn't know where he would end up after his death and so also his billions of followers as well. This Surah 19:17-27 in the Quran should be sobering to all Muslims and make them enquire more about their eternal destination. Who would a rational person follow; a Perfect Man or the man who said he wasn't perfect and had no clue what would be done to him after death? Muslims should not be emotional about this. I am not conjuring or making up things, but quoting exactly as written in the Quran that so-called practicing Muslims revere and read every day. The Quran never referred to Mr. Mohammad Abdallah as a perfect man, but referred to our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ as a Perfect Man. A Perfect Man is someone who never sinned and so why will Muslims continue to follow Muhammad who is not perfect, but refused to follow Jesus Christ, the Perfect Man? No wonder, the Holy Bible rendered this verdict: "This is the verdict; Light has come into the world-referring to our Lord Jesus Christ-but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come into the Light for fear that his (or her) deeds will be exposed" (John 3:19-20). The Muslims are in darkness. Please pray for your family members, friends, neighbors, acquaintances, etc steeped in this religion of darkness called Islam that their spiritual eyes be opened and will be delivered!
So what do the Muslims believe then in our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ? A Muslim friend once told me-Moshood- how he went on "hajj" to Mecca and saw the beautiful tomb of Muhammad. I congratulated him but asked him if he knew where the tomb of our Lord Jesus Christ could be found in Jerusalem. "But Jesus Christ did not die; he was taken up to heaven by God although God made him to look as if he was killed to the Israelites." Then I asked him, "If Jesus Christ is already in heaven and your Muhammad is in the grave, why would you choose to put your faith in a man already in the grave, dead and unreliable than Christ Jesus who is in heaven?" He kept quiet. Then I proceeded further: "The Quran says Jesus Christ will be coming back to this earth very soon to judge the world. Will Muhammad be coming back since you saw his beautiful grave in Mecca?" He became annoyed and furiously walked away. Friend, it is time we probe the identity of this Allah. Hear what the Book of Life says: "Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God. Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the anti-Christ, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world," (John 4: 1-3).
See, isn't it funny and contradictory for Muslims to say our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ is not the Son of God but at the same breath call Him Messiah of God? Read these disclosures in the Quran in Surahs 3:48-49 and 19: 17-27. From what the Quran has recorded so far, it is glaring that Allah, the inspirer of the wording of the Quran cannot be the True Lord God Almighty. Allah is not the same as our Creator the True Lord God Almighty Who said of our Lord Jesus Christ: "This is my Son, who I love, with him I am well pleased," (Matthew 3:17). "Then a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and a voice came from the cloud: 'This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him," (Mark 9:7). The same True Lord God Almighty would not contradict Himself in the Quran by denying the Son ship of our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ. Why are the pronouncements of Allah in the Quran clearly antithetical and contradictory to the pronouncements of the True Lord God Almighty in the Holy Bible? If Allah is not the True Lord God Almighty, Who created the heavens and earth, who is totally in control of all situations and circumstances, who then is Allah? Certainly, Allah is a spirit, but not of the True Lord God Almighty. He must be an anti-Christ, and anti-God. As I disclosed in this column last week and in earlier articles, Allah is a demon-god? Do not say we should not jump into conclusion yet, because going by the pronouncements of Allah in the Quran which we have pointed out in legionary instances in this column in earlier articles, Allah is markedly different from the True Lord God Almighty that we read about and His pronouncements in the Holy Bible. Any perceptive reader, even at the platonic level reading the Quran, and compared with the Holy Bible would definitely see the Quran as a rejoinder to the Holy Bible. One can deduce that there is a silent spirit answering the True Lord God Almighty of the Holy Bible. It is as if Allah is saying, "Look, you guys have read the Holy Bible, now let me reply the True Lord God Almighty of the Holy Bible."
If Muslims say they believe Jesus Christ, the question one needs to ask is; which Jesus Christ? The Jesus who is an "impostor," who was not crucified, dead or resurrected? But the Quran, upon close scrutiny seems to have confused its readers and succeeded in twisting the truth and contradicting itself on the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. In the Holy Bible we read that God is Spirit (John 4:22). The Quran agrees with this and corroborated the wordings of the Holy Bible: "The Virgin will be with child and will give birth to a Son, and they will call him Immanuel which means, "God with us,"(Matthew 1:23). "And she who was chaste therefore; We breathed into her something of our Spirit and made her and her Son a token for all peoples," (Surah 21:91). In John I: 1-4, we read: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made: without Him nothing was made that has been made. "The Quran affirmed this Biblical account in "Al-Baqara" a popular scripture in the Quran in Surah 2: 253 "Of those messengers; some of whom we have caused to excel others, and of whom there are some unto whom Allah spoke, while some of them He exalted above others in degree, and we have Jesus, Son of Mary, clear proofs of Allah's sovereignty and we supported him with the holy spiritů." But this book of Allah says the Holy Spirit is Archangel Gabriel. What a monumental fraud! Please, everyone reading this article, wherever you may be, even if you are not a Christian and religious, but for epistemological reason, try to look for the English Version of the Quran and read it. You will be appalled at the level of contradictions in this supposed book of salvation to over one billion Muslims on earth today. And we are talking of eternity, folks!
When the Quran says our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ did not die on the Cross, was neither crucified nor did His resurrection take place but it only appeared to be so according to Surah 4: 157, but when asked where now is the body of our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ, Muslims say and the Quran recorded it that our Lord Jesus Christ is now in heaven. Yet Muslims deny the Resurrection of our Savior. What a contradiction! This is sheer fraud! Someone is definitely playing on the intelligence and the eternal destination of over one billion human souls on earth. We join Apostle Paul in praying for these ignorant human souls: "Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. And the Lord's servant must not quarrel instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach not resentful. Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will," ( 2 Timothy 2: 23-26). "And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age-referring to Satan and Allah- has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God," (2 Corinthians 4: 3-4).
