“Most Merciful” (Quran24:22). How?

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Diplomacy, Theology

 

To the above question an administrator of one of the largest groups on Facebook back-questioned me:

“tell me honestly, do you punish your little children for every wrong they do?

Just answer this simple question”

For which i answered:

“I will not punish my son for all his wrongdoing. But when a son does a wrong against another sibling [(even a hypothetical one)], i will definitely punish to set justice. so… ‘Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness for sins’ (Leviticus, Hebrews).”

To which she said:

“My question was

do you punish your little children for EVERY WRONG they do?

My reply:

“Not for every wrong, as you put it. But for wrongs involving other siblings, i would to fulfil justice.”

Her reply:

“right… so if you can be merciful, why not Allah?
if you can forgive, why not Allah the MERCIFUL?
do you think Allah calls Himself MERCIFUL for show only?

use your brain to think logically”

My reply:

Yes, Allah can be “most merciful” only in Isa al Masih.

Muhammad says in Quran 24:22 that Allah is “ever-forgiving and most-merciful”. For Allah to be most merciful, should He simply wink at our sin and allow us into paradise by the backdoor? Just ponder over that for a minute. If He simply forgives a murderer, for instance, who was not caught on earth by the governing bodies, won’t He be an unjust God? Yes, absolutely! But when Allah Himself provides the sacrifice and pays the penalty for your sin, then He is really the “most-merciful” (Quran 24:22), don’t you think? Indeed! Now, the cross to you has taken on a new meaning than a mere idol. As Apologist Ravi Zacharias puts it, “On the cross, the Love of Allah, the Justice of Allah, and the Mercy of Allah, meet.”

“I am the way the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me” (Your Isa al Masih).”

 

Jn3:16

But here… you’re redeemed and made 100% holy, like a virgin without spot or blemish:

(BTW, that administrator put me out (blocked me from posting anything more in that group), which is reason why i am posting this here in an effort to still reach out to Muhammadans.)

Sister Ruth happened to unearth this from underneath our refrigerator yesterday while i heard Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s message, which ended with an unsettling benediction in my hearing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now (30th November 2017) the blessing is coming through my wife Anna Motupalli …

 

 

 

शुद्ध हृदय पर बख्त सिंह भाई (Brother Bakht Singh on Pure Heart)

“Wife beating”

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Christian Life, Family, Social, Theology

 

“For the moment ALL discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it” (Heb12:11).

Let us not stick American feminism in here, which has been demoted as the Abomination of Desolation. We LOVE our wives so much that we will go to the extent of beating the hell out of them–not divorce them like so called “Christian” Americans do–if they go out of line, in keeping with scripture (1Cor9:27NIV)!

I believe, my wife would rather have me beat her than divorce her!

Unless you are spiritual (i.e. not a Biblicist/legalist/literalist) you are NOT in a capacity to see this verse (1Cor9:27) for what it means.

We love our wives and administer discipline like the head of the household (1Cor11:3), even as her spiritual father (Isa9:6). If you still want to remain contentious and indeed there are some of you who are, answer me: Am i not my brother’s keeper?

In view of the smearing of the Most High Himself that is going on (cf. Jn12:6), we are placing our own dignity on line here. But we are not ashamed of the Truth nor of stating it! He who does not acknowledge these truths as being self-evident are outsiders to the family of God.

 

cf.: 1 Corinthians 4:15

 

cf. Matthew 23:9; John 20:17

The verse that came to my mind was: _:_

But let us reserve for our ultimate love, respect, honor, reverence, fear and worship for our preeminent Abba AkbarLuke 4:8; Matthew 10:37.

Lordship Salvation & The True Muslim (مسلم)

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Christian Life, Diplomacy, Theology

I, Caleb Suresh Motupalli, a witness of the resurrected Jesus Christ/عيسى المسيح/ישוע המשיח  in spirit form, write to all Muslims, Christians and Jews scattered around the world:

Let me begin by addressing Muslims, and as a byproduct also cover the urgent need of shallow Christians and Jews.

Unlike what Calvinists say, we do have a freewill. Without freewill the concept of God’s love itself is in question. So freewill is sacrosanct. But it is not enough knowing that we have a freewill; we must say with Jesus, “Not my will Father, but thine be done.” And that is what being a true Muslim is all about as expounded in this article.

The so-called Muslims do not KNOW the WILL of Allah/God in order to submit to it. What are they submitting to then? The answer is a bold, YES! Surely, they are submitting to impurity and as a result waging evil-Jihads in the name of Allah/God. A True Muslim (مسلم) seeks first to know the true will of Allah/God before he can even submit to it. Now, what is that universal true will of Allah/God?

Role models are key to under-standing who a true Muslim is and what He submitted to. We have Isa al-Masih/Jesus Christ as our role model of a True Muslim, who SUBMITTED to an allah/god, who is LOVE (1John4:8), even in His death and said, “Not my will, Father, but thine be done” (Injeel Luke 22:42). Others merely brandished a sword. But Isa/Jesus too showed He can brandish a sword as well. But only to show the greater power, namely, that He can heal (an attribute of Creator Allah/God alone) a ghastly wound inflicted by a sword (Injeel Luke22:36-38, 47-51).

Truth does not need a prop such as the Bible, Quran or the Gita for it to stand. It is self-evident.

Islam is true and holy. Just as the Law was present from the beginning before Moses even gave it, Islam was present before Muhammad even gave it. Islam means submission to the will of Allah/God.

Two types of Submission exist.

1) Forced Submission;

2) Freewill submitted to God’s will.

Submission is emphatically taught by Isa al-Masih/Jesus Christ (Matt7:21-27; 12:50) and kept even in His death (Injeel Luke 22:42). That mankind must submit to His Creator, is self-evident, something that has eluded the Church-at-large in favor of Lutheran & Calvinistic theories. While the sacrifice of Isa/Jesus atoned (paid for) our past sins (Rom3; 2Pet1), Isa’s righteousness is Isa’s. That Isa’s righteousness is ours–even a righteousness of one who has died for his neighbor–supposedly imputed to us by the work of Christ on the cross, is a false teaching, and is condemned. As a result, Submission (Islam-in-essence) is seen as a demoted works-based religion. That future sins have not been paid for, is alone sufficient to debunk Luther! (For details see: Luther Debunked). Calvinism is debunked here. What’s more, we all need to become “True Muslims,” in the true sense of the term! But Satan does this sort of thing (uses evil-Jihad to try and convert everyone to Muslim), to smear and tarnish our efforts, black. But news about the emergence of “Lordship Salvation” by Ray Comfort is really a comfort, instilling hope in His Church to this weary soldier of the Lord.

But Muhammad’s Islam as against Isa’s Islam is like comparing a thorny bush with a rose plant. Thorny bushes, like all evil, are neither surprising nor terrorising to true saints of God. Thorny bushes grow wildly everywhere, requiring neither cultivation, beauty to attract good, nor water or light. Rather it thrives in the ugly & the evil. And like all fascism, it offers rather challenge-sounding, “struggle, danger & death” sound-bites to those spoiling for a kill. While at the same time they are impervious to any sort of persuasion, having a “forced certainty” (Maher Samuel) about them. This must not be, my dear Muslim brethren!

Muhammad merely offered people a prophet’s reward from Allah. But as Sons of Allah, like Isa before us, we lead True Muslims to receive from Allah, a Son-of-God reward as per Isa’s own Words of gold in Matt10:41.

As to the nature of יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर, anything can be ascribed to Him. But what is the truth? Let Bible speak, and let Quran speak, and let Gita speak, and if there is any other source of truth, let that too speak. If it is of God, it will stand, otherwise it will fall. Agreed? But desist from patronizing your own merely because it is your own. The truth in this quote by Clint Eastwood sounds vulgar at first glance but on closer examination is pointedly self-evident: “Opinions are like arseholes. Everyone has them; but everyone else’s stinks.”

If, as the Quran says in 33:40, Muhammad is the last prophet, has Allah/God stopped speaking? Or worse, has Allah/God died? Far be it for me to even hypothesize that way! The fact of the matter is: Allah/God is not dead and is still speaking and uses His prophets as well as other sons of His to speak to the world.

If Muhammad, as the Islamists say, is a prophet, so am i. What is more, i am more than a prophet. I am a son of Allah like Isa/Jesus perhaps? Now note that “the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets” (1Cor14:32). So whatever Muhammad had written or said should withstand the test.

The word ‘Muslim’ means: submitting to Him (Allah/God). Which is excellent. But in order to submit, we need to know what to submit to. First of all, we need to find out what the will of Allah/God is, even for any moment in time, to which we must submit to.

“I DESIRE COMPASSION, AND NOT A SACRIFICE”

Now, what does that statement by יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर in Hosea6:6NKJV, referred to by Isa/Jesus in Matthew 12:7, mean?

In the context of evil Jihadists slaughtering precious “aid workers,” whose worth is more than ten thousand, i repeat the statement made by Jesus Christ/عيسى المسيح/ישוע המשיח :

“If you had known what this means, ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless.”

How do we understand this verse? Paraphrasing it, we can say that Allah/God is saying: “I desire the way of mercy/compassion, and not the way of sacrifice”. I seek to show mercy/compassion to people more than i seek sacrifice from them. At first glance, it may appear as if Allah/God is not preferring the way of Jesus, who is said to have been the sacrifice for us and wants to simply pardon His people just as Muhammad says in Quran 24:22 that Allah is “ever-forgiving and most-merciful”. For Allah to be most merciful, should He simply wink at our sin and allow us into paradise by the backdoor? Just ponder over that for a minute. If He simply forgives a murderer, for instance, who was not caught on earth by the governing bodies, won’t He be an unjust God? Yes, absolutely! But when Allah Himself provides the sacrifice and pays the penalty for your sin, then He is really the “most-merciful” (Quran 24:22), don’t you think? Indeed! Now, the cross to you has taken on a new meaning than a mere idol. As Apologist Ravi Zacharias puts it, “On the cross, the Love of Allah, the Justice of Allah, and the Mercy of Allah, meet.” Or as James Emory White puts it, “The cross is where justice met mercy, and both were satisfied.” Rephrasing Rom8:1-3, Timothy Keller writes, “Because of the cross, God can be both Just towards sin and yet mercifully justifying to sinners.”

That, my friend, is being most-merciful!

So note this carefully:

Alah/God desires and wills that you avail this sacrifice/provision of Allah/God and not be a sacrifice yourself. Allah’s/God’s will is that you take up the way of mercy (where Allah/God Himself provides you with the sacrifice) than for you to take up the way of sacrifice (where you must provide your own sacrifice–the penalty for your sins).

Submission now, as Pastor Rob Jacobs puts it, is no longer a dreary drudgery…but rather…an affectionate acceptance.

I believe, we can term it as ‘yielding’, and not even ‘submission.’

Three more points i want you to ponder on

  1. The virgin birth of Jesus (Quran 3:45-47 and Quran 19:16-22). First of all, why was it necessary for a virgin to be with a child? Yes, to show that He (Isa/Jesus) was not a son of a man or one who came into being through sexual intercourse between a man and a woman, to begin with. Then the question should arise, “Whose son is He then?” Prophet Muhammad says that He (Isa/Jesus) is merely the “son of Mary”. But science today has shown that it is impossible for a woman to give birth by herself. And God is not going to break that law without a good reason. So we must infer that Allah wants to show to the world that He (Isa/Jesus) is the Son of Allah! If we are imperfectly in the image of Allah (Genesis1:26-27), then conversely, Allah Himself is a perfect image of the imperfect man/woman. So Allah is not a mere force or power as is commonly misunderstood. Then Isa/Jesus, who is the son of Allah, is the epitome of that revelation in the flesh of who Allah is really!
  2. Fact: There is no Entry into the presence of Allah even with one sin. As we have studied above, there is no forgiveness without shedding of blood (Lev17:11; Heb9:22). Eid al-Adha (Arabic: عيد الأضحى‎ ʻĪd al-’Aḍḥá, “festival of sacrifice”), also called Feast of the Sacrifice, the Major Festival, the Greater Eid, Kurban Bayram (Albanian, Bosnian, Turkish: Kurban Bayramı), Eid-e-Qurban (Urdu: عید قرباں), Eid al-Bakr and Bakrid is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to honour the willingness of the prophet ʾIbrāhīm (Abraham) to sacrifice his young first-born son Ismā’īl (Ishmael) as an act of submission to God’s command and his son’s acceptance to being sacrificed, before God intervened to provide Abraham a lamb to sacrifice instead. In the fullness of time, that Lamb is none other than Isa al-Masih! Whether it was Ishmael or Isaac, the principle of sacrifice for one’s sins is taught by all religions. Someone once told me this real life story, that helped me a great deal to understand what Isa al-Masih/Jesus Christ had done; and what “love”, “sacrifice” and “propitiation” really mean. I also understood the declaration made by John the Baptist (also a prophet of Allah/God, attested by even Muhammad in Quran 3:39), “Behold! The Lamb of Allah/God who takes away the sin of the world” (Injeel Jn1:29). It is a true story that happened in the early 1900s in the state of California. Two Chinese brothers lived together in San Francisco. The older of the two was of good character and high moral standards. However the younger one was into all the wrong things. One day when the younger Chinese man was gambling on the street, a fight broke out between him and his opponent and it ended with the Chinese man killing his opponent. With a view of going into hiding, he went home, put away his blood stained clothes in a closet and ran out. The older brother returned home from work and found the blood stained clothes. He concluded that his kid brother was in trouble again and quickly wore those clothes himself to protect him. When the police came searching, he surrendered himself in place of his brother. The court ordered capital punishment, and the Chinese man was executed by a firing squad. After getting wind of his brother’s death, the younger Chinese man came to the judge pleading guilty, confessing that he was the real killer. Can you guess what the judge had to say? “The crime has already been paid for. We cannot do anything to you. You are free to go” was indeed the judge’s response! Here is another similar true story: A boy takes out the buffaloes to graze. He lets them loose and goes off to play. The buffaloes go and destroy a neighbor’s paddy field. The owner of the paddy field gets wild and follows the buffaloes to the boy’s house with a big stick. Comes to know that it is the boy’s fault and tries to beat the boy. The father comes in the way and takes all the beating. When the man has spent his anger he goes away. Isa/Jesus is the Lamb of Allah/God who takes away the sins of mankind by laying down His life for us, paying the just penalty for our sins. That’s how Jesus loved us so much and took our sins on Himself and bore our punishment. Love made it possible for the exchange. One person sinned but the other person paid the penalty. But won’t it be a shame for someone whom you know is a very good Muslim for the most part, to go to hell? But that will indeed be the case if they don’t have Christ. What’s more, murderers, drug peddlers, prostitutes, adulterers, thieves, and the like…when they receive Christ as their savior, will go to heaven. You may ask: “How is this possible and how is that fair (good justice)?” Answer: The so-called “good person” depended on his own goodness to get him into heaven. That is prideful self-righteousness, which is just the opposite of humility–the greatest virtue. The “good person” may be likened to a clean glass of water into which a speck of cyanide (sin) is added. He is unfit to enter into the presence of a HOLY God just as the glass of water is unfit to be consumed. On the other hand, in all humility, those who recognize that they are sinners needing a savior (just like a diseased person recognizes his need for a physician), quickly find Isa/Jesus (which means: savior) and consummate the relationship with Him. You see: God is not going to make a way to heaven where we may boast about our own goodness. Jesus, the only one like Him, lived a 100% sinless life of a man, in order to be a perfect bhali (sacrifice) for you and for me. This is a provision of God where Love, Justice and Mercy meet. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son to even die the excruciating death, so that all those who put their trust in Jesus should not perish in His justice, but have everlasting life. As Pastor Charles Stanley says, “If there were OTHER ways to Himself, then יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर knowingly did the most devilish thing to send His Son to earth who would later be nailed to that excruciating cross [leave alone whether he died on it or not].”   You see, death or separation from God is only for those who sin. You need not die if you have not sinned even one sin or at least paid all your penalty in full, which is the case when you receive Christ as your savior. “The wages of sin [alone] is death, but the gift of Allah/God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom6:23, The Bible). Isa/Jesus said: “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has  crossed over from death to life” (Injeel John5:24 NIV). You will come out of this womb of time & space and not be a miscarriage like any other. Isa’s/Jesus’s offer is repulsive, offensive only to the proud. The proud don’t want to appear as a beggar receiving something someone dishes out!  Only the humble see themselves as needing help from Allah/God. The proud think they can make it to heaven by themselves. Allah/God says, “you are unclean to come into my presence.” The Holy Spirit too, like a dove, which does not inhabit dirty places, will not come into your heart unless it is 100% clean, which can only be obtained through Jesus’s sacrifice. Only the humble see themselves as sinners needing a savior. Only the humble receive Isa/Jesus, who is the provision of Allah/God, just as the Lamb was to Abraham in place of Isaac/Ishmael. Humility is the greatest virtue in the kingdom of heaven. Are you humble? Are you ready to receive Isa al Masih/Jesus Christ as your personal savior? My dear friend, you do not need evidence or proof that He rose from the dead (resurrected).  That you are a sinner needing a savior, like the rest of mankind, is enough evidence and proof to infer that this is a universal need that surely Allah/God Himself would definitely satisfy, cater to and make a provision for. Allah/God has the answer for it. It is Isa/Jesus/Yeshua, who paid your sin debt in full, that you may thenceforth walk in love and righteousness! And He will be there for you when you sink like doubting Peter, through His Spirit, who will come to take residence in your now cleaned and purified heart. So wash away all your sins in the waters of baptism, administered to you by humble servants of Isa/Jesus! Farewell!
  3. The Resurrection of Jesus Christ. In Quran 19, Maryam, verse 33, Jesus said shortly after his birth:

    “So Peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again)”

    A. Jusuf Ali wrote in the footnote number 2485 of his translation of the Holy Quran (1975): “…those who believe that he (Jesus) never died should ponder over this verse.”

    What Quaran 4:157 simply says is that you can never kill Jesus permanently–He will rise from the dead!

    We don’t even need Quran or even the Bible to support our argument.

    That we are sinners, needing a Savior is self-evident. Even Hindu vedas teach that.

    A dead man comes back to life to show that a man need not die if he is clean (Rom1:3-4; cf. Rom6:23; Gen2:17). That a totally innocent man needs to be put to death so that “his blood would be upon us and our children” (Injeel Matt27:25; Lev17:11; Heb9:22) and then for him to rise again from the dead to show that our sins have “SUCCESSFULLY” (HT: Bro. Sukumar Rachapudi) been forgiven IN him, is self-evident, requiring no evidence to defend it actually. Muhammad made Ishmaelites believe in a lie, impudently uttering Quran 4: 171 & Quran 19:88-92. Now, do not make me an enemy for telling you the truth like it is. We don’t believe in walking on egg-shells just because some rogue individual or state might issue a fathwa against us. This is your Agape Justice giving you counsel. Also, other teachers and Islamic scholars widely interpreted Muhammad as having said Isa never died and therefore never rose from the dead (Quran 4:156-159). I proved in my article why He must not only die but must also be raised from the dead. Therefore, in light of my thesis, Muhammad is silenced if not rubbished! “For the spirits of the prophets are subject to prophets” (1Cor14:29-32). And what’s more, i am more than a prophet. I too am a son of God/Allah.

So who, can we say, is the true Muslim? One who finds out the perfect will of God and submits to that will, at all costs, is the True Muslim. But Allah/God has nothing to do with will-power religion. The choice is in your hands. It is up to you to choose Isa/Jesus as your Savior and Lord or reject His offer. But penalty for your sins, you must pay somehow. Why reject such a great offer of salvation?  “For whoever [tries to] keep the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it” (James2:10). Who rejects such great love…agape love? The proud luciferian! Yes, like Lucifer, he/she is one who rejects good authority. Does it not hurt when someone rejects your love? How much more should it hurt Allah/God and His Son, who loved us with such goodness and sacrificed that precious life for you and for me? That is true and good authority, my friend! “He loved us not because we were lovable, but because He is love” ~ C. S. Lewis.

“Rebellion/insubordination in the light of justice is black, but in the light of love it is devilish” (Charles Spurgeon).

Isa/Jesus left His heavenly abode and came down to earth as a human being, only to identify with you and me, and to die for you and for me. Won’t you love it even when someone speaks your language in a foreign land? Or you find someone of your own skin color? Yes, Isa/Jesus was with Allah/God as co-creator from the beginning of creation, as the scriptures declare. He emptied Himself of His divinity and took the form of a servant, a human, in order to identify with us and be a perfect sacrifice for you and for me. Read more about Isa al-Masih here: Mystery of Christ: Revealed.

And once again, this is the perfect will of Allah/God in order for one to be a True Muslim:

Alah/God desires and wills that you avail this sacrifice/provision of Allah/God and not be a sacrifice yourself. Allah’s/God’s will is that you take up the way of mercy (where Allah/God Himself provides you with the sacrifice, namely His Son Isa al-Masih) than for you to take up the way of sacrifice (where you must provide your own sacrifice–the penalty for your sins).

One last thing. I want to take you to higher ground.

Should you—a True Muslim—NOW worship Isa al-Masih/Jesus Christ?

Firstly, Isa al-Masih did say that He is the Son of Allah/God (Read: Who has Monopoly on Allah) in Injeel John10:33-38 but clearly correcting the self-righteous mobsters, who were impatiently judgmental and trigger-happily concluded that He was equating Himself with Father God:

Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, “You are gods” ‘? If He called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken),  do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God‘?  If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me;  but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.”

Having been born of a Virgin (attested by both Quran & Bible), it is clear that he came down from heaven, also clearly claimed by Isa/Jesus Himself in John 6:51:

“I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

This is a self-evident truth worthy of everyone’s acceptance: Like respect, worship is never demanded; it is earned and is given/offered in reverence.  We “render to ALL their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor” (Rom13:7). On Judgment Day, mere Muslims, i mean the ones who believe that Isa is merely a prophet like Muhammad, will be given, merely a prophet’s reward as per Isa’s own Words of self-evident truth in Matt10:41 (“He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward”) in light of the Golden Rule (Injeel Matt7:12). But as for us, we are after a Son-of-God’s reward. Even though Isa is the Firstborn of all creation and also the Firstborn from the Dead, he NEVER asked anyone to worship Him nor even hinted so. However, Isa/Jesus readily accepted worship at the time of his ascension. We will see why?

Being Firstborn and co-creator with God/Allah (Injeel John 1:3; Colossians 1:15-17; Philippians 2:10-11;  Koran 2:116) is enough reason to worship Him. Not only just that; we worship the Son on our own accord, for what He did for us. Of course, we reserve the greatest respect/honor/worship for Abba Akbar, the Father, who created us in the first place. God is love (1Jn4:8), fully demonstrated by the SON. Those who do not honor the Son (SEEN), do not honor the Father (unseen). When you honor/worship the Firstborn (of all creation & also from the dead), you effectively worship/honor the Father. That is why Jesus Himself said in Jn5:21-23NASB:

“For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son also gives life to whom He wishes. “For not even the Father judges anyone, but He has given all judgment to the Son, so that all will honor the Son EVEN as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.”

Isa/Jesus is the Bread of life that came down from heaven (Jn6:51). We eat this Bread symbolically, effectively eating His flesh, because it is on account of His sacrifice that we now live, and not because we eat ordinary bread for sustenance. If someone CLAIMS to worship the unseen יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर, but does not give respect due to a worthy seen brother, he is a LIAR (1Jn4:20).

 

Isaiah 45:21-22 (“Was it not I, the LORD? And there is no God apart from me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none but me. Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.”) is TRUE. And the Ten Commandments (Exodus20:1-17), which says:

“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.“You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me”

is holy and true!

And the Shema, “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one” (Deut6:4) is also holy and true.

Now consider…

Why did Isa/Jesus say: “I and the Father are ONE” (Injeel Jn10:30)? Because Isa and the Father are NOT partners, in the sense of two separate entities coming together for one purpose. They are one and the same. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (Injeel Jn1:1). Now consider this ijtihad through this little illustration: With respect to others, Caleb’s head and his arm are one, right? Both, the head and the arm, can claim to be Caleb, without a shadow of doubt. But with respect to each other, arm listens to the head. One serves the other. Now read Isaiah53:1; Ex15:16 & Job40:9 and note that Isa/Jesus is Arm of Abba Akbar. Monotheism! This is not shrik business. Nor is it Al-Mushrikun (those who worship others alongside with Allah). This is true Tawhid!  Since not even Muhammad nor anyone else died for you and me, expect Isa al-Masih, Jn14:6 (‘Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”‘) is TRUE. Since Isa is the only one who died for us and is therefore the only way, we pray to the Father IN ISA’S/JESUS’ NAME ALONE by which we have access to the Father. That is why Isa says in John 14:14 – “If you ask [the Father] anything in My name, I will do it.” Isa/Jesus shed His precious blood on that cruel cross of Calvary and made us partakers with Him of the heavenly riches, even making us sons of God together with Himself, the Firstborn. For that, we do worship Him, on our own accord, even though He Himself affirmed Ex20:2-5; Deut6:13-15; 10:20 and told us to worship and serve the Father and Him alone (Injeel Matt4:10). You see, without Isa/Jesus, we are nothing; to dust we must have had to return.  Moreover, though Isa/Jesus Himself was created by the Father in the beginning of all creation (Col1:15; Rev3:14), Isa/Jesus was there from the beginning of eternity (Micah5:2) and together with Father they created the rest of creation (Injeel Jn1:3; Isa48:13; Job38:5). It is true that Allah/God has no partners (Isa44:8; 45:6). Isa/Jesus and Father Allah/God are One (Injeel Jn10:30). Both of them are agape (sacrificial) love; the Father, by nature, and the Son, by demonstration. We too will all become One with the Father ultimately (1Cor15:24). But right now we are all One with Isa/Jesus, having been grafted to a branch in the vine (Jn15:1-10; Rom11:17-21) through the born-again resurrection experience (scholars may check this out), baptism and the laying on of hands (Jn3:5), receiving the sap (Holy Spirit/WORD – Jn6:63) as adopted sons of Allah/God, who too are gods (Jn10:35) as He engineers us and qualifies us for heaven (Eph5:26).

Just as the wife respects her husband, but reserves the greater respect to al-Masih/Christ, we too, do offer our worship to Jesus Christ/عيسى المسيح/ישוע המשיח  and call Him Lord as King David did in Ps110:1, saying “The LORD said to my Lord….”  We reserve the greater worship for the Father. God is the big LORD and big GOD; Isa/Jesus is small Lord and the small God. And so are we. Therefore, together with us–who have now been reconciled with יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर–Isa/Jesus/Yeshua Himself calls יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर, “my Father and your Father, My God and your God” (Jn20:17). Isa/Jesus–the Firstborn–is King of kings, and the Lord of lords (Rev17:14; 19:16).

In my view, all Muslims–those who truly submit to Allah/God–will look, really good before Allah, if they receive and put on al-Masih/Christ!

Best of grace to you for Judgment Day, that will soon come upon the whole world! As for those die-hard Muhammad followers, who want to stick to their guns, we will see them on that DAY!

Lovingly,

Bro. Caleb Suresh Motupalli

A mere servant of Isa al-Masih/Jesus Christ/Yeshua HaMashiach, who is the real lover of your soul!

The “PBUH”

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Diplomacy, Theology

Perverted brains think only in terms of sex–a BIG thing in their eyes. They are unable to see the sonship of Isa/Jesus to the Father in the SPIRITUAL sense. When Adam too is the spiritual son of God, as scriptures declare in Luke 3:38, why is it still a stumbling block to them in regarding Him as Son?

“al MASIH” is a title given by Muhammad only to Isa (Jesus) and not even to himself. But the so-called “Muslims” seem to derive GREAT pleasure in calling Isa a SERVANT. Note:

Question: Muslim, Why Is One Woman Not Enough?

First off: 

Saved Noah’s family == Minimum Church.

Therefore:

 

Deut17:17; Matt18:19-20; Teeth; 1Tim2:12; 1Pet3:7; 1Cor7:9;

Acts of Lord Venkateswara & Surely don’t want to go there.

Cf. Matt7:21-24; Jn13:17; Jam1:22; Rom2:1-16

Paul Stands Corrected

On the other hand, the inflexible strict (1Cor13:3; cf. 1Cor9:5) legislation by Paul imposed on both the overseer (1Cor7:7; 1Tim3:2) and the deacon (1Tim3:12) of the Church is hereby overturned based on its undeniable failure. Let alone failed marriages and failed priesthoods, many Christians can tell how they lost a job, were fired, failed to get a promotion, were ousted and ostracized because of the character assassination which was in some way tethered to their faith, as defined by Paul.

If truth (which here is holiness) is in anyway exaggerated it losses its power and is thrown out altogether as a lie. 

Note:

The above formula by Lord Jesus Christ is only for the mortal body, for the Father has riches-unspeakable on the other side of reality.

“Private Interpretation”

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Theology

“To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them” (Isaiah8:20).

Does Isaiah 8:20 also mean scripture interprets itself? Does:

“And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.” (2Peter1:19-21)

mean there can be no authoritative interpreter at all but that scripture must interpret itself?

“No prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation” simply means Truth is established by at least two or three witnesses (Matt18:20). It does not mean scripture is the final authority even to interpret itself!

Active Word == Final Authority. But see where Peter is getting at with the term “private interpretation.” Active Word may also come across as “private interpretation.” That is why Jesus said, where two or three are gathered together there I–the Truth–am. Matt18:20 is of paramount importance to understand what Peter is saying.

If we study the principles of so-called hermeneutics, they will use that phrase “private interpretation” (Peter) to substantiate their claim that scripture must interpret itself. They harp on “sola scriptura” (Scripture Alone) as if the Pope is doing some “private interpretation” of his own. Do you get where i am going with this? The Pope always uses councils, never “private interpretations.” Council == the 2 or 3 of Matt18:15-20.

That the Pope be in authority is of Christocracy. That no one in particular be in authority even to arbitrate between people, is not some supposed virtuous democracy; it is anarchy. Here is proof that TRUTH can in fact be twisted to mean totally the opposite!

The raison d’être of a Pope is ironically for the very thing that he is dismissed by the Protestants, namely, “Private Interpretation.”

Muhammad preaches fake-islam (FORCED submission) not true Islam (freewill submission) of Isa al Masih, who showed what being a True Muslim is like, when He freely accepted the will of ABBA in sending Him to the cross to die for the sins of the world and said:

“O My Abba, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will” (Matt26:39).

The fakeness of Muhammad’s Islam is self-evident in light True Islam (freewill submission) of యేసు క్రీస్తు / यीशु मसीह / Jesus Christ/ المسيح عيسى / המשיח ישוע.

Muhammad mixes truth with lies to ultimately peddle lies.

Quran == proof of dung == FORCED SUBMISSION.

The death penalty for apostasy from Islam == FORCED SUBMISSION.

Quran References:

Quran (4:89) – “They wish that you reject Faith, as they have rejected (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another). So take not Auliya’ (protectors or friends) from them, till they emigrate in the Way of Allah (to Muhammad). But if they turn back (from Islam), take (hold) of them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Auliya’ (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them.” Verse 4:65 says that those who have faith are in “full submission” to Muhammad’s teachings. This verse explains what should happen to Muslims who do not have faith and (along with verses 90-91) do not agree to banishment and subjugation.

Quran (9:11-12) – “But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then are they your brethren in religion. We detail Our revelations for a people who have knowledge. And if they break their pledges after their treaty (hath been made with you) and assail your religion, then fight the heads of disbelief – Lo! they have no binding oaths – in order that they may desist.”

Other verses that seem to support the many Hadith that establish the death sentence for apostates are Quran verses 2:217, 9:73-74, 88:21, 5:54, 9:66.

Hadith and Sira references

The most reliable Hadith collection contain numerous accounts of Muhammad and his companions putting people to death for leaving Islam. According to verse 4:80 of the Quran: “Those who obey the Messenger obey Allah.”

Sahih Bukhari (52:260) – “…The Prophet said, ‘If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.’ ”

Sahih Bukhari (83:37) – “Allah’s Apostle never killed anyone except in one of the following three situations: (1) A person who killed somebody unjustly, was killed (in Qisas,) (2) a married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse and (3) a man who fought against Allah and His Apostle and deserted Islam and became an apostate.”

Sahih Bukhari (84:57) – [In the words of] “Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'”

Sahih Bukhari (89:271) – A man who embraces Islam, then reverts to Judaism is to be killed according to “the verdict of Allah and his apostle.”

Sahih Bukhari (84:58) – “There was a fettered man beside Abu Muisa. Mu’adh asked, ‘Who is this (man)?’ Abu Muisa said, ‘He was a Jew and became a Muslim and then reverted back to Judaism.’ Then Abu Muisa requested Mu’adh to sit down but Mu’adh said, ‘I will not sit down till he has been killed. This is the judgment of Allah and His Apostle (for such cases) and repeated it thrice.’ Then Abu Musa ordered that the man be killed, and he was killed. Abu Musa added, ‘Then we discussed the night prayers'”

Sahih Bukhari (84:64-65) – “Allah’s Apostle: ‘During the last days there will appear some young foolish people who will say the best words but their faith will not go beyond their throats (i.e. they will have no faith) and will go out from (leave) their religion as an arrow goes out of the game. So, wherever you find them, kill them, for whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection.'” This verse from the Hadith is worse than it appears because it isn’t speaking solely of apostates, but those who say they believe but don’t put their religion into practice.

Sahih Bukhari (11:626) – “The Prophet said, ‘No prayer is harder for the hypocrites than the Fajr and the ‘Isha’ prayers and if they knew the reward for these prayers at their respective times, they would certainly present themselves (in the mosques) even if they had to crawl.’ The Prophet added, ‘Certainly I decided to order the Mu’adh-dhin (call-maker) to pronounce Iqama and order a man to lead the prayer and then take a fire flame to burn all those who had not left their houses so far for the prayer along with their houses’.”

Abu Dawud (4346) – “Was not there a wise man among you who would stand up to him when he saw that I had withheld my hand from accepting his allegiance, and kill him?” Muhammad is chastising his companions for allowing an apostate to “repent” under duress. (The person in question was Muhammad’s former scribe, who left him after doubting the authenticity of divine “revelations” – upon finding out that grammatical changes could be made. He was brought back to Muhammad after having been captured in Medina).

al-Muwatta of Imam Malik (36.18.15) – “The Messenger of Allah said, “If someone changes his religion – then strike off his head.”

Reliance of the Traveller (Islamic Law) o8.1 – “When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.” (o8.4 affirms that there is no penalty for killing an apostate).

Judgement

In view of the above self-evident truth, in addition to the below related articles published earlier, all nations of the world should:

  • ban this Fake Islam (forced submission with sword) of Quran,
  • brand Muhammad as a false prophet, and
  • relegate Quran only to the museums

for maintaining world peace. And nations, which do not abide by the above judgement must be quarantined.

Prophet Muhammad: A Kafir & A Takfir

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Christian Life, Diplomacy, International Justice

First published on March 14th, 2015

Kafir

A Kafir (Unbeliever) is one who does not believe especially in the SIGNS of יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर that do require a degree of faith.

Do not say, “a Believer is one who prays this many times a day, etc, etc.” Then you must give royal treatment to this dog.

In fact, the oft quoted Koran 8:12 essentially says:

‘Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers [who believe in the Sign of Virgin Birth AND the Sign of Resurrection]: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers [who do not believe in the SIGNS of Allah]: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.”‘

Note: Angel Jibril spoke Koran to Muhammad. Therefore Muhammad is prophet of Angel Jibril, not of יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर, directly. Whereas it is written of Isa AL MASIH in John 1:18 “No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten god (with the small ‘g’) who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.” Again in Heb1:2 יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds.

Now, briefly…

What is a Sign?

A sign is a => to something.

Sign #1: SIGN of Virgin Birth

Koran 23:50 states: “And We made the son of Mary and his mother as a Sign: We gave them both shelter on high ground, affording rest and security and furnished with springs.” Also, Isa7:14.

Virgin was with child (Koran 2:117). Why a virgin? Man knows it like gravity that it takes a male and a female to make a baby. יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर wants to precisely appear to the world as the Father of one to be born, namely the son of Mary. יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर wants to tell the world that His Son, which means that He is also the co-owner of the creation, trumps all prophets (merely hirelings), past, present, & future, including Muhammad.

A sign is a => to something. What is this something in the case of this virgin birth?

Nothing is impossible with Allah. If he wanted He could have brought forth Isa out of nothing. But why did He use a VIRGIN in particular?

In fact, in keeping with Injeel John 1:3; John 5:21-23NASB; Colossians 1:15-17 and Philippians 2:10-11, even  Koran 2:116-117 clearly acknowledges:

They say: “Allah hath begotten a son”: Glory be to Him (Isa al-Masih/Jesus Christ). Nay, to Him (Isa al-Masih/Jesus Christ) belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth: everything renders worship to Him (Isa al-Masih/Jesus Christ). To Him (Isa al-Masih/Jesus Christ) is due the primal origin of the heavens and the earth: When He (Isa al-Masih/Jesus Christ) decreeth a matter, He (Isa al-Masih/Jesus Christ) saith to it: “Be,” and it is.

But instead Muhammad has not simply misunderstood it but rather did not believe the SIGN, as the Apostles have declared it in the Injil. Muhammad rather went saying:

When He (Allah not Isa al Masih/Jesus Christ) decrees a matter, He (Allah) only says to it (fetus in the womb of Mary), “Be,” and it is.

Koran 8:30 “Remember how the Unbelievers plotted against thee, to keep thee in bonds, or slay thee, or get thee out (of thy home). They plot and plan, and Allah too plans; but the best of planners is Allah.
Koran 8:31 “When Our Signs are rehearsed to them, they say: ‘We have heard this (before): if we wished, we could say (words) like these: these are nothing but tales of the ancients.'”

Isa al Masih was there before the foundation of the earth (Micah5:2; Isaiah53:1-2; Jn1:1). He is from above. The pre-existing Word became flesh and dwelt among us (Jn1:14). So Isa was יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर son before He was born to Virgin Mary. So יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर was saying to the world through the sign that Isa is His Son. See how the Son trumps all prophets here.

Yes, prophet Muhammad included, did not believe that Isa AL MASIH was the Son of Allah. Or was it the translators who attributed the title, “Most Gracious” (Koran 19) also to Allah, when it actually and rightly belongs to Isa AL MASIH?

Therefore, they, including Muhammad, are kafirs on count #1 for not believing in the SIGN of the Virgin Birth AND it’s obvious implications, as noted above.

SIGN #2: The Resurrection

Koran 2:73 states clearly that Allah can bring back the dead. It is one of His Signs.

Tommy Lee Camden II writes in
“Resurrection Of Christ: A Sign Or Not?”

The resurrection in itself is not considered to be a sign miracle, but should it be one? We must examine what makes the miracles sign miracles to find this answer. The sign miracles were a set of seven specific miracles performed by Jesus that held special significance and meaning. Each one of them was performed to another person and for the better good of that person. Now when we look at the resurrection, we must determine what is its significance, who was it for and why was it performed. There are a few factors that must be looked at and first is what is the significance of the resurrection. This is very important for modern Christianity, because it is basically the foundation for the faith that developed into the religion we have. Had Christ not resurrected we would be stuck with idolatry… and the new way to salvation would have never been known. So the significance is that His death did away with the traditions of the Old Testament. Now, the resurrection is [about the new life we have in Christ]. Because of His perfect sacrifice we have the chance to live eternally with Him in the after life, so when asking whom this miracle was for, the answer is, for all of us. He showed us there was hope and life even after death. Jesus raising Himself from the grave is the perfect way to show the world that all power in heaven and earth is in Christ. Its one thing to raise the dead like Lazarus, but its so much more powerful to give ones self up to death, wait three days to allow Jewish belief that the soul is no longer lingering around the body and then to restore life back to yourself from the grave. Only Jesus has ever done this and only He could.

But Muslims, including Prophet Muhammad, make themselves Unbelievers/kafirs by not believing in yet another but more important SIGN of Allah for mankind: The RESURRECTION!

In Quran 19, Maryam, verse 33, Jesus said shortly after his birth:

“So Peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again).”

A. Jusuf Ali wrote in the footnote number 2485 of his translation of the Holy Quran (1975): “…those who believe that he (Jesus) never died should ponder over this verse.”

Koran 4:157 reads:

“That they said [in boast], ‘We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah’;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no [certain] knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not.”

What 4:157 simply says is that you can never kill Jesus permanently–He will rise from the dead!

The AL MASIH says, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies.” (Injeel Jn11:25)

For a Believer, The Day of Judgement (Koran 23:16) is the Day he/she is Born-Again, when Justice meets Mercy for his/her sake, and both are satisfied. In fact it is his/her Day of Resurrection, particularly catering to him/her. For, Isa AL MASIH says in Injeel John 5:24: “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.”

Now, Koran 5:10 says it clearly: “Those who reject faith and deny our signs will be companions of Hell-fire.”

Takfir

A Takfir is an apostate, that is, not a true Muslim.

Now, briefly…

Koran 5:72 reads:

“They have certainly disbelieved who say, ‘Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary’ while the Messiah has said, ‘O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.’ Whoever joins other gods with Allah,- Allah will forbid him the garden, and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrong-doers be no one to help.”

As for us, we have not denied: ABBA AKBAR (آبا اكبر), which means the Father is the greatest as per Injeel Jn14:28 and 1Cor11:3. But that only excuses us, not the so-called Muslims.

Clearly Koran5:72 is suspect for twisting INJEEL John20:17 (Jesus said to her, “Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, `I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.'”). Our God is Isa’s God. But our Lord is Isa, and His Lord is the Father (1Cor11:3; Jn14:28). This is true on account of Tanakh Ps110:1 (which speaks of “LORD of Lord”); Torah Deut10:17 (which speaks of “God of gods”); Tanakh Job1:6 (which speaks of “sons of God”). Therefore, (unless it is a translation error mistaking ‘God’ mentioned in Jn20:17 for ‘Adonai/Lord’) Muhammad errs in saying the lie that AL Masih said, ‘O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.'” Either Muhammad is erring or those who wrote the Koran are erring.

You see, the heavens declare the glory of יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर. There is no shortage of people submitting to the UNSEEN (יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर). But it is to the SEEN we must offer their due. This is not only scriptural (Jn5:23; 1Jn4:20; Rom13:7; 1Cor11:3; 1Cor12:28) but it is also a self-evident truth.

Jn5:23; Matt10:40-42; 1Jn4:20; Rom13:7; 1Cor11:3; 1Cor12:28

Therefore, Muhammad is not a true Muslim and is therefore a Takfir..

Conclusion

The above argument with self-evident truths makes the so-called Muslims, including Prophet Muhammad (as he is understood today by the Ummah/Muslim community), takfirs as well as kafirs. Muhammad peddles a truth (virgin birth, etc) + lies deceiving the masses that he is of good. But ultimately he peddles a lie under the label of GOOD — the devil that he is doing mischief.

Judgement

Since Muhammad and Quran lead people to reject యేసు క్రీస్తు / यीशु मसीह / Jesus Christ/ المسيح عيسى / המשיח ישוע without whom there is no life for the Muslim or anyone else for that matter–it is an eternal life and eternal death matter (1Jn2:23)…

the entire QURAN is therefore rubbished!

However we do not deny Muhammad’s great acknowledgement and highlighting of Islam of Isa al Masih. This Son of David is for world peace!

The Ummah must now decide whether they want Muhammad or יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर.

Humility + Grace + Faith + Fruit (Works) => Salvation

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Theology

Originally published on Oct 18, 2016

Proposition:

 

First off,

Rom3:25; 2Pet1:9

At the outset, i want to make it clear that we are not disputing that we were saved, once upon a time by the works of Christ. Salvation is past, present and future. We are saved from the penalty of sin. We are being saved from the power of sin. And we will be saved from the presence of sin.

The faith-of-no-boasting (Eph2:8-9) that enabled you to believe in Jesus at the time of being born-again should now enable you to do good-works (fruit). Else your faith is dead and you’re going to hell. Therefore, Salvation = Grace + Faith + fruit (works).

Luke10:25, 27-28

If not then what is fair for people who have grown up away from any real exposure to Christianity?

Sure, we cannot work to the extent the Law requires. We fall short of them (Rom3:23). Therefore, no doubt we should not boast in any work of ours but have faith.

If the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ atoned our sins, i.e. paid for all our past sins (not those of the future: Rom3:25; 2Pet1:9) up until the time we washed them, the sins of omission and the sins of commission after the knowledge being imparted have treble penalty than to those people who did not receive grace (Luke12:48; Heb10:26ff).

So say goodbye to the Devil and his children, who are singing the devil’s lullaby, “Faith Alone,” subverting righteousness altogether and making God’s people rest in a mere belief-sans-works. “Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous” (1Jn3:7).

The following slides were first released in social media during 2014-2016:

Matt16:12; 1Tim4:1

Jesus rose from the dead by the merits of holiness, not by being deity!

“Jesus Christ our Lord was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.” (Rom1:3-4NKJV)

 

(Luke23:34; Heb10:26)

The warning is clear:

 

A murderer, for instance, upon receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal savior, doesn’t become as righteous as one who has laid down his life for his neighbor. That would be laughable and an embarrassment to heaven. He is merely forgiven and given a clean slate. The Biblical term for that is Atonement. That is, only our past sins are forgiven (Rom3:25; 2Pet1:9).

His righteousness is applied to us for atonement before we are grafted into the vine. When grafted into Jesus, the vine has righteousness, not the branches. Branches need to abide to bear fruit/righteousness. Otherwise they too will be cut-off (Jn15:1-11; Rom11:21ff).

2Cor6:2 says:
“In the time of my favour I heard you,
and in the day of salvation I HELPED you.”

How did He help us? He helped us by wiping away all our PAST sins (Rom3:25; 2Pet1:9). It would NOT be considered as HELP if He also granted us His righteousness. That would be more than mere help. It is help because we can now (at the time of being born-again) start our life with a CLEAN slate, not with a deposit.

 

(Jn3:3; Rom3:25; 2Pet1:9)

To see the kingdom, we need to be born-again (Jn3:3), which is to humble ourselves and consider ourselves as a ‘nothing,’ wholly dependent on God. In order to enter the kingdom, we need to be baptized (Jn3:5), which is the first fruit. Subsequently, we need to now write on the clean slate with righteousness–bear more fruit–because…

 

(Phil2:8-9NIV)

 

(2Pet1:9; Rom3:25; 4:5)

(2Cor5:21)

 

(Matt16:24; 1Jn3:16)

 

(Matt16:24; 1Jn3:16; 1Pet4:19NKJV; Rom6:18; Rom8:12-13KJV; cf. Gal3:1-5)

 

Like a true Muslim–in the sense of “one who submits to God”–we submit our freewill to God’s will, just like Jesus did in the Garden of Gethsemane, saying, “Not my will, Father, but Thine be done!” (Luke 22:42).

 

 

 

Heb6:1

 

(Gal5:16)

 

(2Cor5:3-4NKJV)

For mortality to be swallowed up, Paul speaks of being further clothed over on top of the basics/underwear. He also instructs every woman, including the Bride of Christ, to be clothed with good deeds (1Tim2:9-10).

 

 

“Now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.” (Rom6:22)

 

Cf. Phil2:13

 

Matt22

Rev19:8

From Rev19:8 we understand that this “further clothing” (2Cor5:4) are the righteous acts of the saints. Notice that these acts are not that of the Lord Jesus Christ nor of the Holy Spirit. In other words, these are imparted righteousness, over on top of the basics/underwear, which Christ gave us upon being born-again (imputed righteousness). In the final analysis these are the Wedding Garments we ought to be dressed up in, not remain in our first birthday clothes (diapers).

 

 

This 2Cor5:4 concept of not being unclothed of the basics/underwear but of further clothing over on top of them, is most prevalent even in today’s culture of clothing. Therefore, we can safely say that works are necessary for salvation, without which we will be thrown out, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth (Matt22:1-14).

 

(1Jn3:7)

 

(cf. Jn13:35)

Rom12:1NASB

Luke10:25, 27-28; Rom4:3; Jn8:56

 

(Matt5:20)

That leads to the question of Eternal Security…

 

(Luke12:48)

Out of the four kind of soils that Jesus spoke of in Matt13, only one kind was like the seed that fell on the way side (i.e. never born-again to begin with). But with the rest of the three, per Jn12:24, the seed in fact died and was born-again. But only one out of those three endured to the end and was saved, per Matt10:22 & Matt24:13. So, there is no such thing as once-saved-always-saved!

(Matt18:23-35)

So we see: Jesus leaves us no room for a Salvation based on a “Faith Alone” (passé) theology!

Pastor John Piper, founder of Desiring God and chancellor of Bethlehem College and Seminary, on 14 October 2016 issued this breaking news:

 

Thus says the Lord on Wednesday, 19th October 2016:

“If I cast out demons [like ‘Luther/Faith ALONE’ from strongmen like John Piper] by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.”

Thus says the Lord on Wednesday, 2nd November 2016:

“He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were ill.”

Thereby, Luther now stands overturned!

Dr. John Piper reiterates his stand on both “Eternal Security” as well as “Faith-ALONE” doctrines in this video:

R. C. Sproul is famous for saying:

“The article of Justification by Faith Alone is the doctrine on which the Church stands or falls.”

Speaking of Luther-Calvin Church, Jesus predicted:

“The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.” (Matt7:27)

With the fall of the Goliath-like strongman, it is God, who has declared that the Faith-ALONE (Lutheran-Calvin) Church has fallen. This was confirmed again on 11th November 2016. It is Christ, who brings these charges against the Luther-Calvin Church (cf. Rom8:34; 8:3). The ramification of this is that we NO LONGER sit back and supposedly “pray” for God to do all the leg-work as well. As servants of God we all need to form companies with a not-only-for-profit motive in order to love like never before and show that we are indeed the disciples of Christ (John13:35), bearing fruit for life everlasting. The fruit can be in the form of souls (1Cor16:15), good-works (Col1:10), praise (Heb13:15), financial (Rom15:26-28), quality of character/spirit (Gal5:22), enlightenment (Eph5:9), righteousness (Phil1:11; Heb12:11), holy anger/justice (1Sam11:6; Mark3:5), godly jealousy (2Cor11:2), etc (Rev22:2). But remember that demonstration takes sacrifice, and it is way superior than merely saying: “I love you.”

Slaying of the Spirit — The Original

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Christian Life

If you are die-hard religionist, the Good News (Gospel) of Jesus Christ/عيسى المسيح/ישוע המשיח can be a bitter-pill to swallow because it will mean that you also swallow with it your PRIDE of merit, knowledge, riches, beauty, culture, religiosity, self-righteousness, etc. It works because it is the Truth and sets you free!

Be Born Again!

In there we share an important truth that to be Born Again means to ultra-humble yourself, not some wishy-washy experience but something that is real. You must ultra-humble to become a nothing–be slain!

This is the original “slaying of the spirit” that which is counterfeited in the world.

God’s Real Sovereignty

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Theology

 

Sovereignty thumping Calvinists have verses like Phil2:12 of demoted Paul to back up their claims. They say it is God who is the one CAUSING us to will. Rather what is really happening is that Calvinists try to escape out of the hook. It is they who ARE UNWILLING when it comes for their part to play. They wishfully think that since they are not moving right now it means that God has not actually CAUSED them to return or willed them to move at all. No freewill according to them.

God works in all to will, they say. Where then is our own ID? Where then is our distinct role of sonship? God rewards us according to our works–the scriptures are full of that. God in fact rejoices in the virtues of His sons. He is glorified in their glory just as it was the case when Jesus was glorified. So the “ALONE” (sola) needs to be struck down in entirety because here we are talking about the ultimate Glory, which is NOT for God “alone.” See this article or this video for the striking down of Sola Fide (through Faith Alone), Sola Christos (on the basis of Christ Alone) and Sola Grace (by Grace Alone).

If the Truth is in anyway exaggerated it losses its power and is thrown out altogether as a lie. 

If works are to be made distinct then they are also distinct from even God’s OWN works! But Paul’s erroneous teachings don’t allow that except in the case of plant-water-grow metaphor in 1Cor3:6. When Jesus says the sparrow falls down according to the will of God (Matt10:29), it does not mean God is a control-freak. It just means that it was God who has put in place the various causes/forces for the sparrow to fall to the ground. It is as simple as that. But Calvinists take that to mean God is a control-freak and justify a whole lot of other erroneous teachings of OSAS,  etc. and in order to suite their teachings, they even alter scripture such as Rev13:8NASB (BAD) & Rev13:8ESV (BAD) cf. Rev13:8NKJV (good).
