Is Jesus a prophet or the Son of God?

Comments 37 Standard

Who did Jesus say He was?

  This answer may be obvious to some of us, but the fast growing Islamic faith is converting many Christians with deceiving words. Muslims believe, according to the Quran, that Jesus was the son of Mary and a great prophet, but the Quran specifically says He was not God’s son and that he was never crucified. In fact, the Quran quotes Jesus as saying, he wouldn’t think of such a thing. So you have to wonder………If the Islamic faith believes that Jesus is only a prophet, born of Mary, then what things did Jesus say that made Him a prophet in their eyes? Let’s go over the Scripture to prove the Quran to be false, for we are told from the words spoken from Jesus:

  1.  Jesus is the Son of God  ( the Quran said that Allah has no son)
  2. Jesus has been given all authority over heaven and earth (Quran says that all authority on heaven and earth belong to Allah)
  3. Jesus is the messiah the people of Israel were waiting for, (Quran teaches that this was a deceiving way to destroy Christians)
  4. Jesus has the power to forgive (Allah says only he has the authority to forgive)
  5. Jesus is the only way to salvation (Allah says Islam is the only way to heaven)
  6. Jesus DID die for 3 days and rose on the third day– as Jonah was in the whale (Quran denies this)
  7. Jesus Sits on the right hand of the Lord God (Allah says this is not true)
  8. Jesus sits on a glorious throne
  9. Jesus was crucified as the ancient prophets told us (Quran teaches that this a lie Christians believe)
  10. Jesus was with God in the beginning– before creation (Allah said he made everything)
  11. Jesus is the Word and the Word was with God in the beginning
  12. Only those who believe in Him are saved – Jesus is the only way
  13. He DID rise up again on  the third day

HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD: DOES GOD HAVE A SON?

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. John 3:16-18

“ A SON SHALL BE GIVEN TO US”
Isaiah: For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.7 Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom,establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever (Isaiah 9:6-7)

David: The Lord said :You are My Son, today I have begotten you…the nations for Your inheritance, the ends of the earth for Your possession…Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and you perish (Psalm 2:4-12)

King Solomon: Who has established the ends of the earth? And What is His Name, the Name of His Son? (Proverbs 30:4)New Testament proof: Matthew 27:54, 1 John 5:13, Rev 2:18, John 3:19, John 1:1-3

HIS NAME IS IMMANUEL; “THE LORD WITH US”; BORN OF A VIRGIN
Isaiah: “ Hear now, O House of David! Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will you weary my God also? Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign, Behold the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14)
New testamant fulfilment Matthew 1:23

The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.5 He rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, “I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.”7 I will proclaim the LORD’s decree:He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father.8 Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.9 You will break them with a rod of iron;you will dash them to pieces like pottery psalm 2:4-12

Who has wrapped up the waters in a cloak? Who has established all the ends of the earth?What is his name, and what is the name of his son?Proverbs 30:4

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel, which means God with us. Isaiah 7:14

50 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and[e] went into the holy city and appeared to many people.54 When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!” Matthew 27:54

Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. 3 In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, 4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.6 This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. 7 For there are three that testify: 8 the[a] Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. 9 We accept human testimony, but God’s testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. 10 Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. 11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. 1 John 5:1-13

These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze. Revelation 2:18
Revelation 3:7 ‘.. of Him who is holy and true, Who holds the Key of David. What He opens no one can shut, and what He shuts no one can open.”
Jesus is the Son of God: “But what about you?” Jesus said to them. “Who do you say that I am?” – Simon Peter answered, “You? You are Christ, the Son of the living God!” – “Simon, son of Jonah, you are a fortunate man indeed!” said Jesus, “for it was not your own nature but my Heavenly Father who has revealed this truth to you! Now I tell you that you are Peter the rock, and it is on this rock that I am going to found my Church, and the powers of death will never prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven; whatever you forbid on earth will be what is forbidden in Heaven and whatever you permit on earth will be what is permitted in Heaven!” Then he impressed on his disciples that they should not tell anyone that he was Christ. Matthew 16:15-20

Jesus is the Son of God: Then when daylight came, the assembly of the elders of the people, which included both chief priests and scribes, met and marched him off to their own council. There they asked him, “If you really are Christ, tell us!” “If I tell you, you will never believe me, and if I ask you a question, you will not answer me. But from now on the Son of Man will take his seat at the right hand of almighty God.” Then they all said, “So you are the Son of God then?””You are right; I am,” Jesus told them luke 22:66-70

Jesus came down from Heaven: No one has ever been up to Heaven except the Son of Man who came down from Heaven. The Son of Man must be lifted above the heads of men – as Moses lifted up that serpent in the desert – so that any man who believes in him may have eternal life. For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that every one who believes in him shall not be lost, but should have eternal life. You must understand that God has not sent his Son into the world to pass sentence upon it, but to save it – through him. John 3:16

God sent His son Jesus: The man who does not honour the Son does not honour the Father who sent him. I solemnly assure you that the man who hears what I have to say and believes in the one who has sent me has eternal life. He does not have to face judgment; he has already passed from death into life. Yes, I assure you that a time is coming, in fact has already come, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and when they have heard it they will live! For just as the Father has life in himself, so by the Father’s gift, the Son also has life in himself.

HE IS A HIGH PRIEST FOREVER IN THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK
David: “The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind: “YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER, IN THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK” (Psalm 110:4) Proof: Hebrews 5:6,6:20,7:15 “You are priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek”

HE IS A RULER FROM BETHLEHEM TO SHEPHERD ‘MY PEOPLE ISRAEL’
Micah: “But you, Bethlehem Epherathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from old, from everlasting.” Proof: Matthew 2:6, Luke 2:15

HE TOOK OUR PLACE OF PUNISHMENT: HE WAS PIERCED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS Zechariah: “And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn .Zechariah 12:10

Isaiah: “Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.(Isaiah 53) Proof: 1 Cor1:18, 1 peter 2:24, mark 15:24, Hebrews 6:6, Eph 2:16, Gal 3:13, Rev 1:7, John 19:33-37

John 1:29“Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world

Jesus Sits at God’s right hand : Then the High Priest said to him, “I command you by the living God, to tell us on your oath if you are Christ, the Son of God.” Jesus said to him, “I am. Yes, and I tell you that in the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of power and coming on the clouds of Heaven.” Matthew 26:62-65

Jesus is God’s Son: At that moment Jesus himself was inspired with joy, and exclaimed, “O Father, Lord of Heaven and earth, I thank you for hiding these things from the clever and the intelligent and for showing them to mere children! Yes, I thank you, Father, that this was your will.” Then he went on, “Everything has been put in my hands by my Father; and nobody knows who the Son really is except the Father. Nobody knows who the Father really is except the Son – and the man to whom the Son chooses to reveal him!”Luke 10:21-22

Jesus is the resurrection, He is the Only way: “I myself am the resurrection and the life,” Jesus told her. “The man who believes in me will live even though he dies, and anyone who is alive and believes in me will never die at all. Can you believe that?” Matt 11 25-26

All Power in Heaven and earth belongs to Jesus : But Jesus came and spoke these words to them, “All power in Heaven and on earth has been given to me. You, then, are to go and make disciples of all the nations and baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to observe all that I have commanded you and, remember, I am with you always, even to the end of the world.” 28:18-20 –

I tell you in solemn truth,” returned Jesus, “before there was an Abraham, I AM!” John 8:58

“I myself am the road,” replied Jesus, “and the truth and the life. No one approaches the Father except through me. If you had known who I am, you would have known my Father. From now on, you do know him and you have seen him.” John 14:4-7

            The quran seems to be a book on how to argue a case against Christians and Jews. No where in the bible does God show us how to argue, debate and manipulate His will against other false gods and religions- so why does the Quran spend so much time telling Muslims how to answer us? In the Quran, Allah, for some reason needs to explain away specific beliefs and give them answers and hypothetical questions and debates and how to win every argument when speaking to Jews and Christians.

    In the bible, God tells us what lies ahead. He told Abraham that he would be a great nation, that from Judah- a great eternal King would come. Prophecies foretold of a Messiah who would be born in Bethlehem, called a Nazarene, born of a virgin, would suffer and die and would save His people from their sins. What are the chances of ONE MAN(Jesus) fulfilling all these prophecies? 1 in 17,000,000,000,000.  Scripture continues to tell us of the last days in detailed description – of what lies ahead for us written by many old testament prophets –Isaiah, Joel, etc. as well as New Testament scripture including the book of Revelation. Notice that all through scripture, the Lord has always told us what lies ahead from His prophets. He told Abraham he would be a great nation, promise of a Messiah spoken over Judah, prophecies through Asaph, through David, Isaiah, Zechariah and all the prophets- they spoke of the Messiah who was coming. God also warned us of the days ahead as well as what it would be like in the last days. No where in scripture are we told that another new contract with a mew message from an angel would be in effect – the quran is a book of false messages from a false angel teaching its followers to debate against every hypothetical word spoken from a Jewish person or a Christian.

   Islam teaches (every public school student in America) that the Quran is the updated version of the old and new testament and Mohammed was the next prophet – but whoa! Hey! That’s not in the scriptures- no! God has told us everything by His prophets for the last 6000 years – never once was there mentioned a complete change around – even to the point of telling Christians that Allah and Jesus only came to deceive Christians. Did you get that? Muslims believe Allah and Jesus intentionally deceived Christians so they would burn in hell- or turned into “swine and monkeys”.

  The Quran is a book of confusion, aka Babylon- a lot of words causing a lot of confusion. It throws out names like “Moses, Jesus, Abraham” and acts holy, but every word goes against the true scripture- the Word of God.  At least 70% of what I read while researching the Quran was hypothetical conversations and how to reply to “people of the book” aka, Christians and Jews. If they say this, you say that – – that’s their holy book. Oh, and fyi- they believe Allah sent Jesus to deceive all Christians, and that he was never crucified or resurrected. So here we have a god who deceived, and a deceiver is a liar and where do all lies come from? All lies come from satan.

Does God deceive? ”  Verily, the hypocrites seek to deceive Allah, but it is He Who deceives them. And when they stand up for As-Salat (the prayer), they stand with laziness and to be seen of men, and they do not remember Allah but little. S. 4:142 Hilali-Khan And when We make people taste of mercy after an affliction touches them, lo! they devise schemes (makrun) against Our communication. Say: Allah is quicker to scheme (makran); surely Our apostles write down what you plan. S. 10:21 And those before them did indeed scheme (makara), but all scheming (al-makru) is Allah’s; He knows what every soul earns, and the unbelievers shall come to know for whom is the (better) issue of the abode. S. 13:42

   The Quran says that Allah says that all people of the book are burned in hell and turned into monkeys and apes, but when you confront a Muslim about this, they say it out of context.. looks pretty clear to me.

    Allah, through the quran, also has said every Jew and Christian will be wiped out of Israel- Is that really the same God? God said He has loved them with an everlasting love.

     You should not only know the truth, but teach them to the next generation, your children, your nephews, nieces, and all your family. Every child in America studies Islamic faith beginning in middle school. The words are deceiving. Millions of students are learning the 5 pillars of Islam, being taught it is a holy religion, they are taught it is the new updated version of the scripture, and they are taught that Allah is God of all religions- and that Jesus was an honored prophet, but Christians are deceived because He was not the Son of God.

Don’t believe it’s a book of debate against the true people of God? Check it out yourself:

  • Say: “O People of the Book (Christians and Jews) ! come to common terms as between us and you: That we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah.” If then they turn back, say ye: “Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to Allah’s Will).  Ye People of the Book! Why dispute ye about Abraham, when the Law and the Gospel Were not revealed Till after him? Have ye no understanding?  Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian; but he was true in Faith, and bowed his will to Allah’s (Which is Islam), and he joined not gods with Allah. Surah: 3 :64-65,67
  •  The Jews say: “Allah’s hand is tied up.” Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for the (blasphemy) they utter. Nay, both His hands are widely outstretched: He giveth and spendeth (of His bounty) as He pleaseth. But the revelation that cometh to thee from Allah increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. Amongst them we have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of Judgment. Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah doth extinguish it; but they (ever) strive to do mischief on earth. And Allah loveth not those who do mischief If only the People of the Book had believed and been righteous, We should indeed have blotted out their iniquities and admitted them to gardens of bliss. Surah: 5:64-65
  •  And they say: “None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian.” Those are their (vain) desires. Say: “Produce your proof if ye are truthful.” Chapter 2 111
  • The Jews say: “The Christians have naught (to stand) upon; and the Christians say: “The Jews have naught (To stand) upon.” Yet they (Profess to) study the (same) Book. Like unto their word is what those say who know not; but Allah will judge between them in their quarrel on the Day of Judgment. Chapter 2 113
  • They say: “Become Jews or Christians if ye would be guided (To salvation).” Say thou: “Nay! (I would rather) the Religion of Abraham the True, and he joined not gods with Allah.” Chapter 2 135 
  • Or do ye say that Abraham, Ismail Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes were Jews or Christians? Say: Do ye know better than Allah? Ah! who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have from Allah? but Allah is not unmindful of what ye do! Chpt 2 140
  • Never will the Jews or the Christians be satisfied with thee unless thou follow their form of religion. Say: “The Guidance of Allah,-that is the (only) Guidance.” Wert thou to follow their desires after the knowledge which hath reached thee, then wouldst thou find neither Protector nor helper against Allah. Chpt 2 120
  • (Both) the Jews and the Christians say: “We are sons of Allah, and his beloved.” Say: “Why then doth He punish you for your sins? Nay, ye are but men,- of the men he hath created: He forgiveth whom He pleaseth, and He punisheth whom He pleaseth: and to Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between: and unto Him is the final goal (of all)” Chpt 5 :18

Are you getting this? Did almighty God need to tell us how to argue with followers of Baal? Or how to convince Hindus? Or how to debate a follower of satan? NOOOOOOO!  He didn’t need to- because He is God.

IF you are considering the Islamic faith, here are the holy scriptures, the very words of Jesus, you are choosing to ignore, you may need to get your sharpie out:

Jesus is the Son of God:  “But what about you?” Jesus said to them. “Who do you say that I am?” – Simon Peter answered, “You? You are Christ, the Son of the living God!” – “Simon, son of Jonah, you are a fortunate man indeed!” said Jesus, “for it was not your own nature but my Heavenly Father who has revealed this truth to you! Now I tell you that you are Peter the rock, and it is on this rock that I am going to found my Church, and the powers of death will never prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven; whatever you forbid on earth will be what is forbidden in Heaven and whatever you permit on earth will be what is permitted in Heaven!” Then he impressed on his disciples that they should not tell anyone that he was Christ. Matthew 16:15-20

Jesus is the Son of God: Then when daylight came, the assembly of the elders of the people, which included both chief priests and scribes, met and marched him off to their own council. There they asked him, “If you really are Christ, tell us!” “If I tell you, you will never believe me, and if I ask you a question, you will not answer me. But from now on the Son of Man will take his seat at the right hand of almighty God.” Then they all said, “So you are the Son of God then?””You are right; I am,” Jesus told them luke 22:66-70

Jesus came down from Heaven:  No one has ever been up to Heaven except the Son of Man who came down from Heaven. The Son of Man must be lifted above the heads of men – as Moses lifted up that serpent in the desert – so that any man who believes in him may have eternal life. For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that every one who believes in him shall not be lost, but should have eternal life. You must understand that God has not sent his Son into the world to pass sentence upon it, but to save it – through him. John 3:16

God sent His son Jesus: The man who does not honour the Son does not honour the Father who sent him. I solemnly assure you that the man who hears what I have to say and believes in the one who has sent me has eternal life. He does not have to face judgment; he has already passed from death into life. Yes, I assure you that a time is coming, in fact has already come, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and when they have heard it they will live! For just as the Father has life in himself, so by the Father’s gift, the Son also has life in himself.

  • Allah says Jesus was not more than a messenger O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not “Trinity” : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. Q171

 

  • Allah says there is no Son It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, “Be”, and it is.q5 35
  • Allah says there is no son : Say: “If (Allah) Most Gracious had a son, I would be the first to worship.”  Glory to the Lord of the heavens and the earth, the Lord of the Throne (of Authority)! (He is free) from the things they attribute (to him)! 83] So leave them to babble and play (with vanities) until they meet that Day of theirs, which they have been promised, surah 43:81-82
  • More quran confusion: The Jews call ‘Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah’s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth! Q30

Jesus Sits at God’s right hand : Then the High Priest said to him, “I command you by the living God, to tell us on your oath if you are Christ, the Son of God.” Jesus said to him, “I am. Yes, and I tell you that in the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of power and coming on the clouds of Heaven.”  Matthew 26:62-65

Jesus is God’s Son: At that moment Jesus himself was inspired with joy, and exclaimed, “O Father, Lord of Heaven and earth, I thank you for hiding these things from the clever and the intelligent and for showing them to mere children! Yes, I thank you, Father, that this was your will.” Then he went on, “Everything has been put in my hands by my Father; and nobody knows who the Son really is except the Father. Nobody knows who the Father really is except the Son – and the man to whom the Son chooses to reveal him!”Luke 10:21-22

But Jesus went on to say, “How can they say that Christ is David’s son? For David himself said in the book of psalms – ‘The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, till I make your enemies your footstool.’ David is plainly calling him ‘Lord’. How then can he be his son?” Luke 10:44

Jesus has the power to forgive:  “Cheer up, my son! Your sins are forgiven.”  At once some of the scribes thought to themselves, “This man is blaspheming”. But Jesus realised what they were thinking, and said to them, “Why must you have such evil thoughts in your minds? Do you think it is easier to say to this man, ‘Your sins are forgiven’ or ‘Get up and walk’? But to make it quite plain that the Son of Man has full authority on earth to forgive sins” – and here he spoke to the paralytic – “Get up, pick up your bed and go home.” And the man sprang to his feet and went home. When the crowds saw what had happened they were filled with awe and praised God for giving such power to men. Matthew 9:1-2, 3-8

Jesus has been given power and authority –even to disown you before the Father: “Every man who publicly acknowledges me I shall acknowledge in the presence of my Father in Heaven, but the man who disowns me before men I shall disown before my Father in Heaven. Matthew 10:32-33

  • Allah says this is blasphemy:  In blasphemy indeed are those that say that Allah is Christ the son of Mary. Say: “Who then hath the least power against Allah, if His will were to destroy Christ the son of Mary, his mother, and all every – one that is on the earth? For to Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between. He createth what He pleaseth. For Allah hath power over all things.” [18] (Both) the Jews and the Christians say: “We are sons of Allah, and his beloved.” Say: “Why then doth He punish you for your sins? Nay, ye are but men,- of the men he hath created: He forgiveth whom He pleaseth, and He punisheth whom He pleaseth: and to Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between: and unto Him is the final goal (of all)” Surah: 5 :17

Jesus is greater than the messenger, He is the one they were waiting for:  John the Baptist was in prison when he heard what Christ was doing, and he sent a message through his own disciples asking the question, “Are you the one who was to come or are we to look for somebody else?” – Jesus gave them this reply, “Go and tell John what you see and her – that blind men are recovering their sight, cripples are walking, lepers being healed, the deaf hearing, the dead being brought to life and the good news is being given to those in need. And happy is the man who never loses faith in me.”- As John’s disciples were going away Jesus began talking to the crowd about John: “What did you go out into the desert to look at? A reed waving in the breeze? No? Then what was it you went out to see? – a man dressed in fine clothes? But the men who wear fine clothes live in the courts of kings! But what did you really go to see – a prophet? Yes, I tell you, a prophet and far more than a prophet! This is the man of whom the scripture says – ‘Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way before you’.11:11 – “Believe me, no one greater than John the Baptist has ever been born of all mankind, and yet a humble member of the kingdom of Heaven is greater than he.- “From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of Heaven has been taken by storm and eager men are forcing their way into it. For the Law and all the prophets foretold it till the time of John and – if you can believe it – John himself is the ‘Elijah’ who must come before the kingdom. The man who has ears to hear must use them. Matthew 11:4-15

No one knows he Father but the Son, and to those whom the Son chooses to reveal Him:  – At this same time Jesus said, “O Father, Lord of Heaven and earth, I thank you for hiding these things from the clever and intelligent and for showing them to mere children. Yes, I thank you, Father, that this was your will.” Then he said: “Everything has been put in my hands by my Father, and nobody knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son – and the man to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.11:28-30 – “Come to me, all of you who are weary and over-burdened, and I will give you rest! Put on my yoke and learn from me. For I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Mat 11 25-27

Just as Jonah was dead for 3 days and became alive again, so he was a sign of the Messiah to be resurrected on the 3rd day  Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said, “Master, we want to see a sign from you.” But Jesus told them, “It is an evil and unfaithful generation that craves for a sign, and no sign will be given to it – except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For just as Jonah was in the belly of that great sea-monster for three days and nights, so will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth for three days and nights. The men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation in the judgment and will condemn it. For they did repent when Jonah preached to them, and you have more than Jonah’s preaching with you now! The Queen of the South will stand up in the judgment with this generation and will condemn it. For she came from the ends of the earth to listen to the wisdom of Solomon, and you have more than the wisdom of Solomon with you now!  Matt 12 38-42

  • Quran says that Christ was never killed: 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:- [171] O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not “Trinity” : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.chapter 4:157-171

He sits son a glorious throne: At this Peter exclaimed, “Look, we have left everything and followed you. What is that going to be worth to us?” “Believe me,” said Jesus, “when I tell you that in the next world, when the Son of Man shall sit down on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones and become judges of the twelve tribes of Israel. Every man who has left houses or brothers or sisters or fathers or mother or children or land for my sake will receive it all back many times over, and will inherit eternal life. But many who are first now will be last then – and the last first! 19:27-30

He sits on the right hand of the Father:  Then when daylight came, the assembly of the elders of the people, which included both chief priests and scribes, met and marched him off to their own council. There they asked him, “If you really are Christ, tell us!” “If I tell you, you will never believe me, and if I ask you a question, you will not answer me. But from now on the Son of Man will take his seat at the right hand of almighty God.” Then they all said, “So you are the Son of God then?””You are right; I am,” Jesus told them Matthew 22 66-69

Jesus is the resurrection, He is the Only way: “I myself am the resurrection and the life,” Jesus told her. “The man who believes in me will live even though he dies, and anyone who is alive and believes in me will never die at all. Can you believe that?” Matt 11 25-26

Jesus spoke of His upcoming crucifixion and resurrection as foretold by the prophets:  Then, as he was about to go up to Jerusalem, Jesus took the twelve disciples aside and spoke to them as they walked along. “Listen, we are now going up to Jerusalem and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes – and they will condemn him to death. They will hand him over to the heathen to ridicule and flog and crucify. And on the third day he will rise again!” Matt 20 17-19

“We are now going up to Jerusalem,” he said, “as you can see. And the Son of Man will be betrayed into the power of the chief priests and scribes. They are going to condemn him to death and hand him over to pagans who will jeer at him and spit at him and flog him and kill him. But after three days he will rise again.” Mark 10:33-34 –

Then Jesus took the twelve on one side and spoke to them, “Listen to me. We are now going up to Jerusalem and everything that has been written by the prophets about the Son of Man will come true. For he will be handed over to the heathen, and he is going to be jeered at and insulted and spat upon, and then they will flog and kill him. But he will rise again on the third day.”  Luke  18:31-33 –

So too, he gave them a cup after supper with the words, “This cup is the new agreement made in my own blood which is shed for you. Yet the hand of the man who is betraying me lies with mine at this moment on the table. The Son of Man goes on his appointed way: yet alas for the man by whom he is betrayed luke 22:20-22 –

“The kingdom of Heaven,” he said, “is like a king who arranged a wedding for his son. He sent his servants to summon those who had been invited to the festivities, but they refused to come. 22:2-14 –

In the middle of the meal Jesus took a loaf and after blessing it he broke it into pieces and gave it to the disciples. “Take and eat this,” he said, “it is my body.” Then he took a cup and after thanking God, he gave it to them with the words, “Drink this, all of you, for it is my blood, the blood of the new agreement shed to set many free from their sins. I tell you I will drink no more wine until I drink it fresh with you in my Father’s kingdom.” luke 26:26-29 –

All Power in Heaven and earth belongs to Jesus : But Jesus came and spoke these words to them, “All power in Heaven and on earth has been given to me. You, then, are to go and make disciples of all the nations and baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to observe all that I have commanded you and, remember, I am with you always, even to the end of the world.” 28:18-20 –

He Only speaks truth: “If God were really your Father,” replied Jesus, “you would have loved me. For I came from God, and I am here. I did not come of my own accord – he sent me, and I am here. Why do you not understand my words? It is because you cannot hear what I am really saying. Your father is the devil, and what you are wanting to do is what your father longs to do. He always was a murderer, and has never dealt with the truth, since the truth will have nothing to do with him. Whenever he tells a lie, he speaks in character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. And it is because I speak the truth that you will not believe me. Which of you can prove me guilty of sin? If I am speaking the truth, why is it that you do not believe me? The man who is born of God can hear these words of God and the reason why you cannot hear the words of God is simply this, that you are not the sons of God.” John 8:42-47 –

He was with God in the beginning of all creation : “Yes,” returned Jesus, “I was watching and saw Satan fall from heaven like a flash of lightning! It is true that I have given you the power to tread on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the enemy’s power – there is nothing at all that can do you any harm. Yet it is not your power over evil spirits which should give such joy, but the fact that your names are written in Heaven. Luke 10:18-20 – ”

“I tell you in solemn truth,” returned Jesus, “before there was an Abraham, I AM!”  John 8:58

“I am Alpha and Omega”, says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is coming, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8

1:17-20 – When my eyes took in this sight I fell at his feet like a dead man. And then he placed his right hand upon me and said, “Do not be afraid. I am the first and the last, the living one. I am he who was dead, and now you see me alive for timeless ages! I hold in my hand the keys of death and the grave. Revelation

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome John 1:1-5

Beware of others coming in His name “Be careful that you are not deceived,” he replied. “There will be many coming in my name, saying ‘I am he’ and ‘The time is very near now.’ Never follow men like that. And when you hear about wars and disturbances, don’t be alarmed. These things must indeed happen first, but the end will not come immediately luke 21:8-9 –

Only those who believe in Him are saved:

 No one has ever been up to Heaven except the Son of Man who came down from Heaven. The Son of Man must be lifted above the heads of men – as Moses lifted up that serpent in the desert – so that any man who believes in him may have eternal life. For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that every one who believes in him shall not be lost, but should have eternal life. You must understand that God has not sent his Son into the world to pass sentence upon it, but to save it – through him. Any man who believes in him is not judged at all. It is the one who will not believe who stands already condemned, because he will not believe in the character of God’s only Son. This is the judgment – that light has entered the world and men have preferred darkness to light because their deeds are evil. Anybody who does wrong hates the light and keeps away from it, for fear his deeds may be exposed. But anybody who is living by the truth will come to the light to make it plain that all he has done has been done through God.” John 3:10-12

He came from Heaven to be lifted up above all men  No one has ever been up to Heaven except the Son of Man who came down from Heaven. The Son of Man must be lifted above the heads of men – as Moses lifted up that serpent in the desert – so that any man who believes in him may have eternal life

Jesus, God’s Son, has been given the power to give life to men :19-29 – Jesus said to them, “I assure you that the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. What the Son does is always modelled on what the Father does, for the Father loves the Son and shows him everything that he does himself, Yes, and he will show him even greater things than these to fill you with wonder. For just as the Father raises the dead and makes them live, so does the Son give life to any man he chooses

Woe to those who don’t believe! 5:37b-47 – “Now you have never at any time heard what he says or seen what he is like. Nor do you really believe his word in your hearts, for you refuse to believe the man who he has sent. You pore over the scriptures for you imagine that you will find eternal life in them. And all the time they give their testimony to me! But you are not willing to come to me to have real life! Men’s approval or disapproval means nothing to me, but I can tell that you have none of the love of God in your hearts. I have come in the name of my Father and you will not accept me. Yet if another man comes simply in his own name, you will accept him. How on earth can you believe while you are for ever looking for each other’s approval and not for the glory that comes from the one God? There is no need for you to think that I have come to accuse you before the Father. You already have an accuser – Moses, in whom you put all your confidence! For if you really believed Moses, you would be bound to believe me; for is was about me that he wrote. But if you do not believe what he wrote, how can you believe what I say”?

12:44-50 – But later, Jesus cried aloud, “Every man who believes in me, is believing in the one who sent me; and every man who sees me is seeing the one who sent me. I have come into the world as light, so that no one who believes in me need remain in the dark. Yet, if anyone hears my sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him – for I did not come to judge the world but to save it. Every man who rejects me and will not accept my sayings has a judge – at the last day, the very words that I have spoken will be his judge. For I have not spoken on my own authority: the Father who sent me has commanded me what to say and what to speak. And I know that what he commands means eternal life. All that I say I speak only in accordance with what the Father has told me.” John

You don’t believe because your father is satan: 8:42-47 – “If God were really your Father,” replied Jesus, “you would have loved me. For I came from God, and I am here. I did not come of my own accord – he sent me, and I am here. Why do you not understand my words? It is because you cannot hear what I am really saying. Your father is the devil, and what you are wanting to do is what your father longs to do. He always was a murderer, and has never dealt with the truth, since the truth will have nothing to do with him. Whenever he tells a lie, he speaks in character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. And it is because I speak the truth that you will not believe me. Which of you can prove me guilty of sin? If I am speaking the truth, why is it that you do not believe me? The man who is born of God can hear these words of God and the reason why you cannot hear the words of God is simply this, that you are not the sons of God.”

10:25-30 – “I have told you,” replied Jesus, “and you do not believe it. What I have done in my Father’s name is sufficient to prove my claim, but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. My sheep recognise my voice and I know who they are. They follow me and I give them eternal life. They will never die and no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all. And no one can tear anything out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are One.”

Jesus is the only way! 10:6-15 – Jesus gave them this illustration but they did not grasp the point of what he was saying to them. So Jesus said to them once more, “I do assure you that I myself am the door for the sheep. All who have gone before me are like thieves and rogues, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the door. If a man goes in through me, he will be safe and sound; he can come in and out and find his food. The thief comes with the sole intention of stealing and killing and destroying, but I came to bring them life, and far more life than before. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd will give his life for the sake of his sheep. But the hired man, who is not the shepherd, and does not own the sheep, will see the wolf coming, desert the sheep and run away. And the wolf will attack the flock and send them flying. The hired man runs away because he is only a hired man and has no interest in the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and I know those that are mine and my sheep know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I am giving my life for the sake of the sheep.

15:1-8 – “I am the real vine, my Father is the vine-dresser. He removes any of my branches which are not bearing fruit and he prunes every branch that does bear fruit to increase its yield. Now, you have already been pruned by my words. You must go on growing in me and I will grow in you. For just as the branch cannot bear any fruit unless it shares the life of the vine, so you can produce nothing unless you go on growing in me. I am the vine itself, you are the branches. It is the man who shares my life and whose life I share who proves fruitful. For the plain fact is that apart from me you can do nothing at all.

14:6-7 – “I myself am the road,” replied Jesus, “and the truth and the life. No one approaches the Father except through me. If you had known who I am, you would have known my Father. From now on, you do know him and you have seen him.”  John 14:4-7

You must ask in Jesus’ Name 14:9-14 – “Have I been such a long time with you,” returned Jesus, “without your really knowing me, Philip? The man who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The very words I say to you are not my own. It is the Father who lives in me who carries out his work through me. Do you believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? But if you cannot, then believe me because of what you see me do. I assure you that the man who believes in me will do the same things that I have done, yes, and he will do even greater things than these, for I am going away to the Father. Whatever you ask the Father in my name, I will do – that the Son may bring glory to the Father. And if you ask me anything in my name, I will grant it.

15:16 – “It is not that you have chosen me; but it is I who have chosen you. I have appointed you to go and bear fruit that will be lasting; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he will give it to you

22:16 – “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to you with this testimony for the Churches. I am both the root and stock of David, and the bright star of the morning!”

In the middle of the meal Jesus took a loaf and after blessing it he broke it into pieces and gave it to the disciples. “Take and eat this,” he said, “it is my body.” Then he took a cup and after thanking God, he gave it to them with the words, “Drink this, all of you, for it is my blood, the blood of the new agreement shed to set many free from their sins. I tell you I will drink no more wine until I drink it fresh with you in my Father’s kingdom.” Mark 26:26-29

  3. A few things for you to ponder upon and pray about Lisa.

    The first is a dream about Hagar’s decedents.

    had a dream 12/23/2010. In the dream I saw a desert and in the desert I saw a woman who had covered herself with a blanket to protecting herself from the sun’s heat. I also saw a bush and I could make out a person in the bush but I could not see who it was. I heard a voice in the dream describing for me as in a narrative what I was seeing. The next thing I saw was an angel of the Lord appear and then I saw the woman, who turned out to be Hagar, uncover her head because she perceived that she wasn’t alone. The angel spoke kindly to her and then pointed with his hand to a place in the desert and I then saw a gusher of water come out of the desert sand. Remember, Hagar thought that she and her child were going to die. The next part of the dream I was thinking about the Tucson Refugee Ministry and that they are ministering to a great many of Hagar’s children who have come to Tucson, a desert, seeking refuge.

    Remember Hagar and her son were cast away because Ishmael was not to be a co-inheritor of the promise with Isaac.However, Peter says in
    Acts, “For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all
    those afar off, as many as the Lord our God shall call”.
    (Act 2:39 MKJV)

    Also, the water in my dream is symbolic of the Holy Spirit, and I believe that a revival is coming to the children of Hagar who dwell in desert places.

    The second is what is happening to Christianity. There is a movement that is out to combine Christianity and Islam with the new faith being called “Chrislam”. Check out the following 2 links and see what the Lord speaks to you regarding them.

    http://www.submergingchurch.com/2012/03/13/rick-warren-muslims-christians/

    • That is really interesting. I’ve heard of the chrislam movement but now I see, from the Quran verse he quoted, it’s actually a movement based on the Quran – words of Allah – so dangerous. It is Allah’s will that they join together – the words are directly from Satan. I read a post earlier on how Muslims are taught to hate ther non muslim wives. Its so opposite of an all loving God who teaches us to love- even our enemies, to always be truthful. He is always waiting and patient with us- wanting all to come back to Him. My prayer is that someone would find the truth in Jesus Christ Son of God, to know and understand how much he loves them. My concern is for this next generation being brainwashed in schools. My children have had to study it each year, (started to homeschool though) and they don’t teach te truth to the children. Thanks for sharing this, I’m sure it will bless many others, lisa

      • I’m not sure whether you’ve heard this or not, but many Muslims are having dreams where Jesus appears to then and tells them that He is their Messiah and for them to trust and believe in Him.

      • I know! That is amazing. My neighbor, who was hindu said he saw Jesus when he was young (age 7) it was as if he was there at the last supper. He said he never knew or heard about Jesus before ,but immediately knew it was Him. He said that he ran back excited to tall his family, they laughed at him and would not let him speak of it again- he lived in another country, but today he knows 🙂
        God is good. There are many Muslims around where I live – everywhere, they are the nicest people. I think it’s important ro understand where they come from and what they believebecause what the world teaches us is chrislam – we need to know the scriptures well so we aren’t easily deceived

      • I had a dream on March 29, 2012 of a small group of people going door to door and preaching in the streets to peple.They were not to my knowledge Jehovah’s witnesses or Mormons. The thing I saw that was strange about these people doing the preaching was that their eyes were bigger than normal and they were totally black, they had no whites. I knew in the dream that what they were preaching was deception and I can remember one particular instance in the dream where I saw them preaching to a couple and I tried to intervene but was too late as the couple had listened and accepted what they said as the truth. I watched the couple’s eyes go from normal eyes to the kind of eyes these people had. As I watched, it was like a shade was being drawn over their eyes. These same people came to my house and managed to get in because they somehow had obtained a key. I can’t think of how they had obtained a key, but they did. I remember my family and I quoted the word to them and did not listen to the deception that was coming out of their mouths. This is a crucial point here that we did not engage the enemy in a dialogue or resort to human reasoning as that is what Eve did in the garden which eventually led to her rebelling and being deceived by the serpent, we stuck to the Word. This was a good thing that we did not attempt to reason with them because their arguments were very convincing, but totally false. I remember firing a gun but I do not think I pointed it at them, but I do remember firing it. Then the Word of the Lord came to me, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms”.(Eph 6:12 NIV)
        No earthly weapon known to man will defeat them as this is a spiritual battle and it must be fought by spiritual means by donning the full armor of God as is described in Ephesians 6:13-18. Additionally, Revelations 12:11 comes to mind where it says the only way to over come the enemy is by the word of our testimony, the blood of the lamb, and we are not to love our lives even if it means our death. We finally got them to leave our house when they saw that they could not reason with us as we stuck to the Word of the Lord.
        Foundations will be tested here as you need to be founded and grounded in the word because this is a spiritual battle that we are facing and the deception is going to be strong.
        I remember being very perplexed as to how the deceivers were able to obtain a key to get into my home to try to deceive me and my family. Then the Lord showed me that the key that gave them entrance into my home was pride.

        I had a dream 10/17/2012. In the dream I saw a safety razor, the kind one would use for shaving. I saw this razor being dragged over the Word of God. With each pass of the razor, a little bit of the Word, the truth, would disappear. The Lord said that this was deception . It starts out with truth and then, over time, shaves it away, a little at a time. I remember warning people in the dream to get into the word, meditate upon it and memorize it because the darkness is coming and the truth of the Word will be distorted by seducing spirits –

      • Agh!Ok the black eyes totally scared me!!
        I couldn’t concentrate on the rest. I will read that in a bit, it’s just that he black eye people – uhm I want to pass out when I hear that , seriously, I’ll get myself together soon , so sorry , I’m pathetic I know , I can’t handle that – agh! Must erase image from brain

      • Sorry for the scare. But it’s how the Lord gave me the dream about deception. Maybe it was supposed to be scary. You might have reacted the way that you were supposed to.

      • I had a dream 02/25/2013. In the dream the verse from Psalms,

        He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet on a rock, and gave sureness to my steps.
        (Psa 40:2) When I looked up this verse, I saw the one below.
        “……… Save me, O God, For the waters have threatened my life. I have sunk in deep mire, and there is no foothold; I have come into deep waters, and a flood overflows me”.
        (Psa 69:1-2)

        In this dream I saw miry clay as is described above verse in Psalms as a sea. Just as one cannot walk upon water without sinking, neither could one walk upon miry clay. The miry clay in my dream was/is deception and to try to walk on it is both foolish and dangerous and ultimately deadly.

        I then saw a boat, somewhat like Noah’s but this boat contained me and my family, not by any means am I saying here that my family and I are exclusive,just that in this dream, the boat held me and my family and what the boat represented was truth, hence the title of the post from John, Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
        (Joh 17:17)

        Just as the waters that the Lord sent in Noah’s day covered the earth and destroyed all that drew breath, Genesis 7, so that same water gave the ark buoyancy so that the ship rode on the very thing that the Lord used to destroy the earth; so it is today where the Lord sends those who do not believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ, strong delusion. But the ark of God’s truth, will float on the delusion that the Lord is sending into the world and it will protect and preserve those who take refuge in it.

        And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the breath of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming, whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceit of unrighteousness in those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, so that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie, so that all those who do not believe the truth, but delight in unrighteousness, might be condemned.
        (2Th 2:8-12)

        The Lord commanded Noah to build an ark in his day to preserve him and his family and the living creatures that dwelt upon the earth. The ark of which I saw in my dream is not built with human hands but with the Word of the Lord and in these last days, this will save those that take refuge in it.

      • That is interesting – so the Word of God is our ark and Jesus is our only
        Fortress.
        This reminds me of a dream I had where I had to walk across a sea. There were
        stones to walk upon the water and each stone represented a different trial or tribulation that
        I was to overcome and pass over. On each stone was written something in arabic or hebrew in
        black writting. I noticed, as I walked, there was help – a cord from heaven- with a round
        grip at the end so I could get help whenever I needed it. I walked without help when the
        waters were shallow, but when I could no longer see land, the waves were overcoming me and
        I couldn’t make it to the next step. When I reached up for my help from the Lord, it was as
        if there were no storm at all- I had new help and new energy when I reached out for help.
        This verse taught me what “wait” or quvah means in the verse – Those who wait upon the Lord shall revew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shallrun andnot be weary, they shall walk and not faint. in Hebrew, the word wait is defined as – to bind together strings made on a cord by twisting or binding- and that is what I saw in the dream.
        Your mention of clay and the sea reminded me of this. So I’m thinking of your last comment too-
        it seems that no matter what you did to teach others the truth- they couldn’t get it- like they
        were completely taken over by something and they did not exist as themselves anymore.
        Would you say that is a warning not to tell some people? Something overcame them and possessed
        them- what would be our step as Christians here? I guess the Word of God-Why didn’t they listen…
        is there something more there? You mentioned that arguing and dialoge wasnt working, so I wonder
        what would work? or just standing our ground? You don’t need to answer all my questions, just
        wondering…Is it worth it to call out the false teachings around us or just keep preaching the Word of God? hmmm…… I have too many questions today.
        Thanks again for sharing everything. Good, good lessons to learn and understand here.
        God bless, Lisa

      • Eve argued with the serpent and was deceived. We are no match for the devil. Jesus, when tempted, didn’t dialogue with the devil, He just simply said, “it is written “. When the deceivers got into my house in the dream, I stuck to the word and didn’t dialogue with them. When a person is in deception the Word means nothing to them. Such people have to be kept in prayer.

      • Wow Tony, that is amazing. I’m glad you shared about how they got in because
        initially I was thinking -tv? something we would bring in our house? but in actuality
        it is what is in our heart- Pride, I guess other things could do this too? like
        bitterness? anger? This is something I have been learning lately – to ask the Lord
        to search out my heart- bitterness and pride can sneak in within a second and we
        wouldn’t even know it was there unless we are asking God to show us. Thank you for
        sharing this- an eye opener, and quite scary too!
        Do you think these dreams represented a certain belief system behind the razor and
        the deception or is it just everything in the world today. The razor dream is exactly
        what is going on today. The key is to stay grounded in the Word of God and keep our
        familes there too, warning everyone everyday.
        Sorry for delay, besides the scare of the “black eyed” children stories I’ve heard,
        (first time I heard about them, I couldn’t sleep at night) my computer decides
        continually not to work for me as well as wordpress refuses to recognize my password. ugh!
        Thank you for sharing this amazing insight, and what the Lord has shown you…going to see your other
        comment now, God bless, Lisa

    • okay, I just watched this video and I CAN’T BELIEVE ALL THESE ‘CHRISTIANS’ ARE ON BOARD WITH THIS!!!!!!! They have covered their eyes and have no wisdom or knowledge of the truth anymore. I am so disturbed right now I really can’t believe that all these pastors didn’t take the time to read and understand the Quran before they agreed to this. What an absolue shame, what a shame- there you have it- like you said – their eyes now are covered. I feel like an angry orangutan right now lol – I just can’t believe the ignorance out there. unbelievable.

      • Deception happens a little at a time. Like the frog you put in water and raise the temperature one degree at a time. As the water gets warmer, he gets more and more lethargic until the water eventually reaches a point that eventually kills him.

  8. Super Post!! Great Job Lisa! I often think as I read the bible how did they feel what were they going through at that time? I can imagine that Jesus during the time He was present in His human form had to have been such a light to those around Him in such a dark dark world. The bible says This is My commandment that you love one another that your joy may be Full.. I can imagine Jesus was full of Joy every where He went He had that sparkle in His eyes that joyous laughter that we can have too so that others will say .. Hey why are they so happy? Then we can share Jesus! Knowledge of the Word, our hope His calling and our joyous way of living will bring others to aspire to really know Him 🙂 Praise the Lord Praise the Lord!

  9. “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” – Matthew 6:22-23
    Explanation of the black eyes…
