Who has a monopoly on Allah

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

Abba AkbarTo begin with, no one has a monopoly on God/Allah/Yahweh. If someone believes they do enjoy a monopoly on Him, they need to furnish self-evident truths to justify that claim.

If someone CLAIMS to worship Him (unseen/invisible), but does not give respects due to a worthy brother (seen), he is a liar (1Jn4:20; Rom13:7; cf. Eph5:22-33) . Even a brother who has laid down His life for him/her. Jesus says: “he who honours me, honours the One/Allah who sent me.” That is why in practice we show respects to ambassadors, representatives and the like to effectively show our respects to their country’s presidents/kings/rulers.

Before one throws a fit about all of this, let’s take in these wise words of Bachir Ali as a primer:

“Overcoming Ego:

Seven steps for overcoming ego’s hold on you:
1. Stop being offended
2. Let go of your need to win
3. Let go of your need to be right
4. Let go of your need to be superior
5. Let go of your need to have more
6. Let go of identifying yourself on the basis of your achievements
7. Let go of your reputation

Ego is the source of a lot of conflict and dissension because it pushes you in the direction of making other people wrong.” (Bachir Ali at Christianity AND Islam Friendly Discussion)

That ego thing applies to me as well. But do know that i was born in a Hindu family. Lived like an agnostic. Went to church AND mosque. Found out in 1977 when i was still 14 years of age (i am now 48) that if there exists a way to heaven, it has to be through Jesus, who alone paid for my evident sins. I was baptized in 1989 and never regretted. Rather, i have been going from glory to glory. So, i believe, ego is not my problem. I am merely one, who had searched for the Truth and found it. Or rather, it is Truth that found me.

We posit:

Isa al-Masih is the Greatest Muslim ever, to live, setting us an example for all, not only in WORD, but by DEMONSTRATING it as well!

As a true Muslim, He submitted to Allah’s will, even when it came to His sacrificial death, on behalf of not only His friends but His enemies as well, saying, “Not my will, Father, but Thine be done.” Subsequently, on the so-called “cross”, before giving up His Spirit to Allah, Isa prayed for His enemies, who crucified Him, saying, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they are doing.”

Strictly speaking, before Isa al-Masih’s hypothetical Islam, Muhammad’s islam pales.  I am sure, those who know what it means to be a Muslim or the meaning of Islam, understand what i am saying here.

You don’t even need for Him to actually die for the purpose of following Him if that is the only thing you can do. To get inspiration to follow Isa al-Masih wholeheartedly, that torture on the cross, which Quran attests to, is enough. It is quite sufficient evidence for every Muslim to cleave to Isa Al-Masih.

Therefore, in my view, after Isa al-Masih’s ministry on the earth, Muhammad’s subsequent contribution to the world, 600 years later, is rather trivial. The heavens declare the glory of God/Allah. You don’t need any prophet to remind the world about that. It is not rocket science. Even fools bow down to the Almighty. Therefore, there is little contribution made by Muhammad.

Sure, there is some light in what Muhammad taught. But we sons of Allah (Jn10:35; Jn1:12), just like Isa before us, are greater lights. Muhammad led the Ishmaelite to receive from Allah, merely a Prophet’s reward (which is perhaps the temporal black gold found in most Arab nations) as per Matthew10:41. But we lead you to receive from Allah more than a prophet’s reward; a Son of God’s reward when you do receive Him as one. Muhammad knew the sure truth of the Virgin birth, but could not explain why Allah chose the path of a virgin to bring forth this particular One. He himself did not know the implications of what angel Jibril was speaking to him.

Unbelief is wicked (Quran). But those who do not believe in such a good one, who is said to have laid down His life for them, even more so. Let’s not show ourselves as unworthy of eternal life with such unbelief.

Quran13:33 says, Allah can be a Makr (deceiver) to deceive the wicked from taking the “Right Way”. The Bible too declares, “O LORD, You have deceived me and I was deceived; You have overcome me and prevailed. I have become a laughing stock all day long; Everyone mocks me” (Jeremiah 20:7).

It is clear that Islamists have been deceived from possessing this humility, which is prerequisite for receiving Isa/Jesus, who laid down His life for us, and also for the Islamists.

But we do know that “all things work together for the good of those who love Allah/God/Yahweh and are called according to His purpose” (Rom8:28). For just as “a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in” (Rom11:25), similar hardening took place on this side of the aisle, namely, on the side of Ishmael-Esau. “From the standpoint of the gospel they are [both] enemies for the Gentile’s sake, but from the standpoint of God’s choice they are beloved for the sake of the fathers” (Rom11:28). But while Paul says, “the gifts and the calling of God/Allah/Yahweh are irrevocable,” there are promises made by the Father that the He (God/Allah/Yahweh) has actually revoked and nullified. For instance, the promise to Eli, who is a type of the priestly office of nation Israel, was clearly revoked. The State of Israel could very well be “the synagogue of Satan”, spoken of by John (Revelation), for maintaining their claims of inheritance by birthright through corporate election of Israel; codifying the righteousness required of God merely in terms of their own skewed adherence to the Mosaic Law—a legalism sans faith and humility. Dishonouring the Son, they have effectively dishonoured the Father who sent Him and thus ceased to be partakers of the promise. For, “the promises were not and cannot be made effective through sinful man’s keeping of God’s Law”. The same applies to the Islamists, whose basic problem is also self-righteousness.  At the same time, the Father has shown Himself as One who “relents concerning wrath” (Jonah). So all options are open for Him, who has “entrusted all judgment to the Son, for He is the Son of Man” (John5).

Also, no one has a monopoly over Father Allah/Yahweh/God. He is the One God over all, the All-in-all. But it is with Isa Al-Masih/Yeshua Ha-Masiach/Jesus Christ, who does have the monopoly by virtue of His death & resurrection, that we get qualified and also enjoy the monopoly. Muhammad seems to have done more harm than good.

The title Al Masih was given only to Isa. Even Muhammad bowed out of such a profile and said that he himself was a “mere messenger” (Quran3:144).

But this is serious stuff about the one, whom the Islamists follow:

“As you examine the life of Muhammad and his writings, you will find that he had contradictory attitudes towards those who rejected him as a prophet. Towards the end of his life he was openly hostile to those who could not consciously believe his claims. Hear his words, as written in the Koran: “The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom” (5:33). For those who want to argue about what Muhammad meant by these things, one only need to look at the examples in his life. Consider this event in the life of Muhammad: “Because of the resistance to his proselytizing attempts, he returned to Friday as the day of worship. He began attacking Jews. At first it was one at a time; then later whole villages. After one Jewish town had surrendered, he had 700 to 1,000 men beheaded in one day, and all the women and children sold into slavery.” (Excerpt from a comment by Steven L. Erickson)

This verse by Isa comes to my mind:

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” ~ Jn10:10.

It is not surprising at all, considering what Muhammad was up against. Muhammad (unlike Paul, who repented when “kicking against the goads”), went to extremes. You can’t beat “Allah’s-Arm/Word-descends-from-heaven-becomes-flesh-born-of-virgin-lived-died-resurrected”. So Muhammad finding no way out, resorts to extreme measures to “Spread Islam” with Sword, as he is so well known for.

Islamists will not use sword where they are the minority. They dare not. Where they are neither minority nor majority, they indulge in covert operations and guerrilla warfare aimed to subvert and sabotage. But they use it big-time where they are the majority. Fascism in full swing. The goal: world domination by hook or by crook.

When you can’t sell, you resort to extreme measures. James, correctly diagnosed their problem, saying, “You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask.”

Islamists take cover under pious Quran verses that teach “not to kill the innocents” but most Islamists will readily capitalize on verses that speak of “lynching infidels” (Quran47:4; and many more). The following flyer, being circulated in India by some strict Islamists, gives them away:

[hidden to avert people freaking out]

A virgin was with child (Quran). Why a virgin should become pregnant? Is it not to show that the One to be born is indeed Allah’s Son?

Isa is Maryam son. True. Isa is human. True. But who is His Father?

This is not rocket science. Man understands SEX like ABCD alphabet. We all recognize that anyone born must have a father. It is the law of nature. We know it like gravity. It is true even today, even after great advances in science. You cannot simply say, “He is Son of Mary” and sweep the rest of the glaring truth under the carpet. If Isa was born to a virgin. Who then was his father? Obviously, His father is Allah, Himself. And that is in fact what Allah wants to convey in Isa’s birth, in accordance to OUR understanding of sex that it takes two to make a baby. Allah is effectively saying here: Isa is greater because He is His Son, and we need to “listen to Him” (Allah’s own Words, attested by Matthew, Mark, and Luke) more than any prophet. The whole point of His virgin birth is to show He is from above. While all the prophets, including John the baptist, and Muhammad are from below.

“When God created man, He did so with divine purpose. Every person was formed according to God’s design, with the very image of God etched into each life. The couple we see in the Garden of Eden were originally made to look like God, to love like God and to live with God. Their sin shattered every semblance of fellowship between themselves and a righteous and holy God. Sin, in fact, made it impossible for them to look like God, love like God and certainly prevented them from ever living with God.” (Don Wilton writes in Decision Devotional, BillyGraham.org)

Adam and Eve loved like Allah. That is, “Adam knew Eve and she conceived” (Genesis). Allah is the perfect original in whose image we are in; whom Isa Al Masih revealed to the world in His incarnation/embodiment; the image characterized by agape love. Therefore, knowing this higher form of love (not the base form, Eros, which is perhaps a characteristic of our fallen selves) we can shed some light on how Isa, son of Allah, was conceived by Virgin Mary. He was then yet to become al-Masih, which took place when He was baptised by John-the-baptist, and the Holy Spirit descended on Him.

“Moses could meditate on the law; Muhammad could brandish a sword; Buddha could give personal counsel; Confucius could offer wise sayings; [Krishna could woo many gopies]; but none of these men was qualified to offer an atonement for the sins of the world…. Christ alone is worthy of unlimited devotion and service” ~ R. C. Sproul, who happens to be a Calvinist & Trinitarian, both doctrines of which we are against.

We reject the Trinity doctrine in toto, simply on the basis of just two verses alone: 1Cor11:3 and John14:28. When Isa says: “I & the Father are one” (John10:30), He is simply using a hyperbole to drive home the point of agreement between the Father & the Son. It is not puppetism aka calvinism! But here are some analogies we commend to you for consideration, that are universal and self-evident, on which we base our logic as to how Isa al Masih is more than a prophet; that He is the very Son of Allah, while all the while, we maintain our monotheistic stand, that there is no God but Allah:

Brother Marqius Dawkins, a dear friend, proposed this analogy for our consideration:

Sun :: Father;
The Light we see :: Son; and
The Warmth we get :: Holy Spirit.

There are biblical analogies as well to support our argument:

Tree trunk :: Father;
Branch :: Son (Isa53:1; Zech4:12); branches :: other sons grafted (Jn15:1-11; Rom11:17-23); and
Sap that flows :: Holy Spirit (Psalms92:14).

Together, One God/Allah. Monotheism.

Therefore our refrain:

Servant Prophet :: hireling.
Servant Son :: owner.

Therefore, Son trumps prophets. ALL.

Allah knew that there would be many erroneous things taught by even good prophets. So He sends His own Son to trump them all!

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). 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.

“Without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God [for our sake via virgin Mary], He remains a priest perpetually” (Heb7:3). So juxtapositioning Heb7:3 with Col1:15 and Rev3:14, which do speak of Christ as a first-creation/Firstborn/preeminent-One, we understand that there was then no time & space even for Christ to have a “beginning of days”. Micah5:2 also attests to this fact. But these are only speculations that have little utility in the conduct of man. As Moses says: “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law” (Deuteronomy 29:29).

It is because of His rather disadvantageous position, of being Son of Allah/God (which He did claim to be, beyond a shadow of doubt, which is very evident especially in John10:34-36), Isa had to emphasize that He is a son of man, again and again. Isa al-Masih, who descended from above, desires to connect with humanity by declaring Himself, a son of man, as well.

“So this man Jesus looks to Father God and says let me go down there with the mission of pissing these people off, so they will take me and crucify me for all of humanity’s sins?” asks Kelly Raisley. Of course that is in allusion to Isaiah6:8 in reference to Isa/Jesus/Yeshua saying to the Father, “Send me!” Isa died, not because he was suicidal, but to fulfil prophecy, to show the degradation of man; that man would kill such a good man (Acts2:22-24; Rom1:4; Jn10:32), even a lover of [your name here, and that of the rest of mankind], not simply an innocent man. You see, Isa was speaking the Truth, while He did good. But  man generally cannot handle the truth. What’s more, Yeshua/Isa/Jesus did more than sugar-coat the bitter-pill. But crucify Him they did, on false charges of blasphemy, without a trial, in keeping with the degradation of man. They accused Him of equating Himself with Father God/Abba Akbar. What’s more, even the Church, till date, portrays Isa al-Masih/Jesus Christ/Yashua HaMashiach as an usurper (Read Phil2:6KJV & Jn5:23NKJV alongside Phil2:6NASB; Jn5:23NASB). Note Jn10:31-39 :

The Jews picked up stones again to stone Him. Jesus answered them, “I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?” The Jews answered Him, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God.” Jesus answered them, “Has it not been 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 them, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father.”  Therefore they were seeking again to seize Him, and He eluded their grasp.

You see, the Lord Jesus Christ never claimed to be GOD, to have blasphemed. He was in fact correcting the mobsters, who were impatiently judgmental and trigger-happily concluded that He was equating Himself with God. He told them the truth like it is, that He is the Son of God! If the Church has gone to one extreme of portraying Jesus as equal with God, Muhammad took the Ishmaelites and Muslims to the other extreme saying, that it is blasphemy to say that “Allah took a Son” (Quran 4: 171 & Quran 19:88-92).

It is not about who is right here. I have embraced the Truth that was brought to me by my country’s enemy, namely, the British, because i humbly saw truth in the mouths of my enemy. And Americans jailed me for 6 months on charges of suspected terrorism, in 1993 when the first attempt was made on the World Trade Centre in New York. Paradoxically, Allah showed me the Sept/11/2001 attacks of the WTC in a dream four days ahead of time.

We do proclaim: Abba Akbar! And base it on our own Bible (Jn14:28; 1Cor11:3). Please read this for your further edification on the Mystery of Christ.

"We do acknowledge that the Church had it wrong on the issue of the nature of Christ and on Submission as well. Perhaps for such a time as this? But these false doctrines have become stumbling blocks for the Islamists, keeping them from embracing Christ/al-Masih in the first place. I have addressed these stumbling blocks in my latest book: Five Stumbling Blocks to the Christian Faith.

The protestants threw out the baby out with the bathwater by dismissing submission (imparted works) altogether, as “filthy rags” as well, along with self-righteous works, while rejecting the Roman Catholic church for it’s excesses. But unfortunately Islamists too threw the baby out with the bathwater and rejected Isa al-Masih, while rejecting the overreach of the current Church, in parading Isa al Masih/Jesus Christ as God-the-Son, “co-equal” with the Father/Allah. What is more, with the coming of the King James Version of the Bible, Phil2:6 characterized Christ as an usurper, on par with Lucifer himself. BTW, the KJV is also father to the lie of the so-called “unknown tongues” (1Cor14:2). It just shows their own greed to be at equal-footing with all other peoples of the world. But Allah allowed that.

Allah, the Most High, is pleased to destroy ALL known authority (1Cor15), not by personally descending to the world Himself, but by simply sending His Son/Right-Arm (Isa53:1), who is naturally subservient to Him. This was later followed by sending the Holy Spirit, Allah’s left Arm (Ps98:1), who is with us, in us, and working through us, today.

Navid Haq challenged: “The three Semitic religions have committed incomparable violence on humanity. Their books are full of violent verses. As bad as each other, if not worse. No one has a moral high ground on this. They all in their own way have killed in the name of god. The force above, in essence, does not sanction violence of any kind.”

To which we assert, not without reason: Jesus alone is worthy of wielding the Sword. “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” (Jn5:22-23). For, “He is Son of Man” (Jn5:27). That is a loaded statement, which deserves a separate article in itself. Enjoy Just Punishment!

Our rebuttal to Navid’s challenge, essentially has this line of reasoning: Every people group (nation) have their opinions (a.k.a. scripture–perfectly logical to them). But God says they are but arseholes in comparison to the Truth. “Opinions are like arseholes – everyone has one and everyone else’s stinks” ~ Clint Eastwood. Blunt, but true, isn’t it? So Allah gives us the Truth in a different form, that does not need a crutch for it to stand. The Truth that we bear is self-evident, requiring no such crutch. Not because there ain’t no truth in the Bible, but because some do not believe it. Allah comes out more stronger with self-evident Truth.

To begin with, we lay out this self-evident Truth, in the following manner, by positing an unbeatable proposition, which if true, gives Christ the prerogative to wield the Sword in the purview of global governance:

“Allah’s-Arm/Word-descends-from-heaven-becomes-flesh-born-of-virgin-lived-died-resurrected”.

That is, as Isa Himself put it, “Greater love has no one than this than for one to lay down his life for his friends” (Jn15). Given that love is the greatest among the big-three: faith, hope and love. It is a “law unto itself”.

Even though love is the greatest, our own love pales in comparison to the Father’s love (Jn3:16). So, not our own love, but putting faith in this sort of love that the Father showed us, instead, is given the premium. Therefore, Jesus says to Thomas who touched & felt Him after He rose from the dead, in full sight of all: “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

So proof & evidence are not premiums as they are made out to be.

Here, we establish the Resurrection of Jesus Christ without such low grade premiums, but with self-evident Truth.

But before we furnish that, here is something for the Islamists, who “kick against the goads”:

In Quran 19, Maryam, verse 33, Isa/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.”

On the other hand, what Quran 4:157 simply says is that you can never kill Jesus permanently–He will rise from the dead!

Notwithstanding, we don’t base our self-evident truth merely on the Quran or the Bible to support our argument.

The Need:

That we are helpless sinners, needing a Savior is self-evident. Even Hindu Vedas, which are far removed from these Semitic faiths, teach that truth.

We posit:

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” and then for him to rise again from the dead to show that our sins have been SUCCESSFULLY forgiven IN him, is self-evident, requiring no evidence to defend it really.

That effectively gives Christians, who possess Christ, monopoly on God/Allah/Yahweh/Brahma. And Isa al-Masih/Yahshua Hamashiach/Jesus Christ Himself claims that exclusivity in John14:6. As a Son, He trumps ALL Prophets!

Navid Haq replied: “produce your evidence if your are the truthful”.

“Christian faith is not an irrational leap. Examined objectively, the claims of the Bible are rational propositions well supported by reason and evidence” ~ Chuck Colson.

However, if more signs are offered to demands for proof, truth loses its credibility as it then begins to cater to the wicked, and no longer the faithful/trusting. So Allah does not offer any more evidence to mankind, except what the Son of Man already gave: “To be in the belly of the earth for three days and three nights just as Jonah was in the belly of the fish for three days and three nights.” This is sufficient for all time. And is sufficient for man as a whole. It is not necessary for Allah to go knocking on each man’s door and reveal Himself to them individually. But graciously, He does that very thing, knocking on many a door of those who would trust this good One. Now, please don’t go looking for faults and stumble upon what is inconsequential. The stumbling blocks are laid there deliberately to actually deceive the proud nitpicker, who evades the weightier matters.

Muhammad brandished a sword. Jesus too brandished a Sword. But see how Isa al-Masih used the sword, in order to show that he can also do something even more greater, namely, to HEAL (an attribute of Allah alone; not even of the great cardiothoracic surgeons of today, who can merely cut & stitch, but have to wait for Allah to heal the patchwork) a ghastly wound made with such a sword (Injeel Luke22:36-38, 47-51).

To the secularists, who broad-brush all religions as evil, like Navid Haq is here doing, we offer this cure:

They are merely a case of a child that has gone astray. They have been inoculated with a dose of “truth” about the existence of God, etc, etc, perhaps even heard about Jesus/Isa, who died for them, and have now become immune to the real thing. That is our basic diagnosis for all secularists AND atheists. They merely want difference for the sake of difference. These kind of people are found plenty in America, but also in many parts of the secular world.

H H Dalai Lama reportedly says, “I am a Buddhist monk. But I am skeptical about the power of prayer. Because if the problems were created by GOD, then he could have solved them. But these problems have been created by us. I think GOD should be looking at us helplessly. We have created these problems and hence we should solve them through actions and not prayers. I believe in prayer and meditation, but I also believe in Karma. Everything comes through actions not through prayer.”

To which we reply with: The word ‘Almighty’ is NOT a misnomer. We have a free-will that sometimes takes us astray, but God is able to correct it and put us back on course. While “Colaboring Prayer” is the only prayer there is, and that salvation is synergistic, and that it pleases God to use & work through His sons in His schemes, it does not however, make a case for prayerless action. God alone is the source of power in the “electric socket”. By Colaboring Prayer we mean: By faith we are merely putting the plug in the socket to get power. The real action is at the “hydro-electric plant”.

Prateek Khatri takes this further and says, “Like Jesus said, we belong in the kingdom of God. We are simply stuck in this material world, cause of our desire to enjoy separately from our father. Our constitutional position is with him in his abode.”

Yes, God does give us free space to enjoy. But “our constitutional position IN HIM” does not negate free enterprise. Because Love offers freedom with some bounds. Otherwise, it is not love.

To the question: “Explain how the ‘Holy Spirit’ led George Bush to murder millions?”

Our answer: George Bush can be likened to Nebuchadnezzar, Allah’s servant, who went up against God’s own people and brought them low, when they sinned. And the black gold (a gift from Allah to the Ishmaelites through Abraham or a temporal prophet’s reward) was taken as plunder.

Rasheed Abdullatif challenged our assurance of salvation, saying: “They put their souls on the gamble of the human sacrifice of an innocent man? Kinda sounds like the stories of people throwing virgins in volcanoes to impress their god. How pagan?!”

We have this simple rebuttal for such a challenge:

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. For instance, if He simply forgives a murderer, 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 our sins, then He is really the “most-merciful”  (Quran 24:22). Don’t you think? Indeed! Even though that sacrificial gift is available to all men, only those who would avail that gift, will get to have it. The Good, Faithful & Humble, do, in fact, recognize their helplessness in approaching Allah, 100% clean. For the past two thousand years they have been seeing in Isa, a good Savior, who loved them so much that He laid down His life for them, and they did crucify Him, and He did die on our behalf, and He did rise from the dead. They do avail the gift, naturally, if in fact they are humble. Peter said: “I most certainly understand now that God is not one to show partiality” (Acts 10:34). We do receive this kind of epiphanies, whenever we call on Allah/God/Yahweh. Timothy Keller affirms this point by saying, “Accepting the gift of Jesus Christ requires humility because you’re admitting that you can’t save yourself by your own means.” God/Allah is not capricious as the Calvinists & Islamists believe, giving mercy to whom He wills, arbitrarily.

Now, the cross to them has taken on a new meaning than a mere idol. On the cross, the love of Allah, the justice of Allah, and the mercy of Allah, meet. That, my friend, is being most-merciful! Timothy Keller explains Rom8:1-3 saying, “Because of the cross, God can be both just towards sin and yet mercifully justifying to sinners”.

Rasheed Abdullatif contends: “You Caleb, you know Allah is god. You wanna put your soul on human sacrifice of an innocent and then you celebrate his suffering and your salvation by ritually drinking his blood and eating his flesh?”

Our reply simply is: We regularly take part in the “Communion” to show and remember for our own purification. That is, by telling ourselves after self-examination, that it was for these present sins of ours (if any), by commission or by omission, it cost Him his life. Judas Iscariot, Sanhedrin, Romans were mere instruments in Allah’s hand to orchestrate His plan. Thus, with the Communion, Isa Al Masih cognitively engineers our holiness, and ultimately, our divinity.

Shafiu Yusuf, a dear friend with perseverance, though he blasphemed the Holy Spirit in me, saying that i am possessed by the devil, says: “[These teachings are] quite different to Jesus’ teachings on earth. Caleb, you are wasting your precious time instead of utilizing it for good deeds.”

Our reply: Our physical feet are locked by your country’s governments with sword, AK47s, and barricades to light. As for us, we shall relentlessly offer you the eternal-life-giving-food-and-drink (the Good News). You mistake us for the enemy for telling you the Truth. But “blessed are the feet (let alone the person) that bring good tidings.” Yes! There is such a thing as Eternal Life. Like Bro. Bakht Singh, who went before us, i would trade everything i have for this simple life of only telling all peoples of all nations about this Good News (Gospel) even if it means wearing sandals like these AND facing death. Now, we come running to you through this medium of FB & blogs with this Gospel అమృతం الإكسير

Was Isa al-Masih speaking of these persecuting, virtually Jihadi countries when He said this: “This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”

Rasheed Abdullatif: “Your Christianity has enslaved and wiped out entire civilizations wherever it goes; there is great pain to the people.”

Our reply: It is needed pain, perhaps. As i had. When the Holy Spirit entered me, i was filthy. But He was gracious enough to enter therein. And fire of the Holy Spirit burnt away all the filth. I was refined as gold is refined in fire. It was not easy. I almost committed suicide. He does not come to abide without our permission. When you do exalt Allah’s al-Mashi, then the Holy Spirit, almost automatically, does to you what you NEED, which may or may not be what you WANT at that time. He knows your need more than you do yourself.

Allah gives grace to the humble, but is against the proud (1Peter5:5; James4:6). Which is the case with Islamists,  who come at you with self-righteous pride, boasting about their externalities of do’s and don’ts, cleaning the outside of the cup without cleaning the inside.

Here is a Softpill for the disease of self-righteousness:

For Islamists especially, whose basic disease is self-righteousness, this is our softpill preparation:

Allah is holy in that He is altogether beautiful and perfect. He will not allow anything unclean to enter into His presence. Sin is like poison. Take for instance, a glass of pure drinking water. Before giving it to you to drink, suppose I showed you a speck of cyanide and added that into the glass. Even though 99.99 percent is pure drinking water, would you drink it? Any person in his normal senses would not drink it. The same is true about Allah also. If we harbour the guilt of even one sin, we are ineligible to enter into the presence of the most holy Allah. Now that should humble us. C.S. Lewis says about this, “Prostitutes are in no danger of finding life so satisfactory that they can’t turn to God: the proud & self-righteous are in that danger.” Islamists, just like their counterparts, the Pharisees, rely on their own good deeds, boasting, when they ought to avail the provision of Allah Himself. They try to go by the letter and fail. But we go by the spirit of the letter and succeed. Jesus taught us this in the Sermon on the Mount. Now, you too, Be Born Again and become 100% clean.

However, our evangelism is two-edged: a sale to the humble, and an anti-sale to the proud. A case in point is Pharaoh, whose heart Allah hardened because of his pride. More and more. Sometimes even, doubly doomed, as Pastor John Piper puts it: “Not only don’t we want to treasure anyone above ourselves, we also don’t deserve that privilege.” That is, Humility, the very remedy itself, gets far removed from us.

The banner everywhere for “Spreading Islam” appears to be more or less what is stated on this group’s banner: “They insult our prophet with the things that they say”.

Have they got anything else better to say, something positive maybe, other than to rouse hatred? They show themselves to be very pious but why those cold-blooded murderous thoughts, evident in that highlighted quote?

The presiding fascistic dictator is evident in Islam. It seems, it is the very spirit of the anti-Christ. Otherwise, who would craft a lie (using sure truths like the virgin birth as bait) so well that he redirects entire nations away from someone as good as the Lord Jesus Christ, who even laid down His very life for them? And not only that, who would be so afraid of the light that he puts up barricades everywhere for its entry, and fascistically crushes all opposition, snuffing out any man, woman and child emitting even a semblance of that light? A light who not only laid down His life for them but even today offers them a TASTE, even A-TRY-OUT to see for themselves if He, through His Holy Spirit, now present in the world today, is indeed as good as they say He is!

You cannot go wrong with Jesus, my dear Muslim, you who have innocent blood on your hands. For you have already committed murder even with such thoughts, displayed in bold on banners.

Yes, we run to you with open arms to offer you as great a gift as అమృతం (الإكسير), the eternal-life-giving-food-and-drink, the Gospel (Quran 3:3; John1:1,14; 6:26-58). And while doing so, as it is written, “for your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” But it is worth it! For, it is you who glorify us in the slaughter, as the Jews did Jesus. But mind you, we are not like those suicide bombers, who lay down their lives out of pure zeal and self-interest with the express purpose of glorifying themselves and to garner some attention for their supposedly righteous community, without having any foundation on the truth, let alone any love for their enemy.

But as i said earlier, all things work together for the good of those who love Father God/Allah/Yahweh, keeping the self-evident Truth of 1Jn4:20 in mind. Perhaps, Islam and Judaism are testimonies of the existence of the Father of Isa al-Masih Himself. Perhaps even Muhammad, after all, has a role for such a time as this!

Thus says the Holy Spirit just now through Matt Paulson:

“IF YOU ARE JEW or MUSLIM YOU ARE NOT SAVED but JESUS SAYS YOU ARE NOT FAR FROM THE KINGDOM OF GOD!!! Injeel Mark 12:29-34 NKJV”

Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” So the scribe said to Him, “Well said, Teacher. You have spoken the truth, for there is one God, and there is no other but He. And to love Him with all the heart, with all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is more than all the whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” Now when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, He said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” But after that no one dared question Him.”

CONFESSION or DECLARATION or SHAHADAH is NOT ENOUGH!! You need Jesus and the Good News!” And this you have shown yourselves, not to have. “He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life” (1Jn5:12).

As of December 9, 2013, Nigeria, Egypt, Syria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, the Central African Republic: “the Muslim persecution of Christians has attained global proportions” writes Robert Spencer, “while the world wrings its hands over ‘Islamophobia’.” If all this news pouring in, is true, then Hitler is an angel before Muhammad, who is the principal perpetrator of all these crimes, and that too in the name of Allah/God/Yahweh.

“No doubt that Christian was telling the truth when he said of those militant Muslim “They are slaughtering us like chickens.” For violent and murderous book of evil, the Quran teaches in Sura 47:4 “Whenever you encounter the unbelievers strike off their heads until you make a great slaughter among them…” This is just one verse in many in the Quran that instruct Muslim to engage in violence and killing. Nevertheless there are still, in spite of the facts, some apologists for Islam who claim the Islam is a “peaceful religion.” These people need to get real and wake up to the reality of the truth. For the teaching of the Quran as well as other written works of Islam and the actions of many Muslims themselves who base their murderous violence on the Quran have shown the world that Islam is a death cult.”

As for this ass-kisser and other secularists & atheists, aren’t they in for a surprise? For, they put the victim and the victimizer in the same bucket, emboldened by voluminous theological crap of the Calvinist-Trinitarian “authorities”, and keeping the whole world in the anarchic limbo it is in today.  Woe unto me if i don’t deal with them accordingly when we come in our glory.

May God open your eyes to behold true love: Agape Justice! (On 9th December 2013 A.D.: “Son of David” — Jer23:5-6; Isa9:6-7; 11:1-10NIV)
