Is Jesus a prophet or the Son of God?

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

  57. Don’t let your mouth make you sin. And don’t defend yourself by telling the Temple messenger that the promise you made was a mistake.

  58. Don’t long for “the good old days.” This is not wise.

  63. Don’t eat too much honey, or it will make you sick! (Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee)
  64. Don’t make me cut your chicken! Lazy people take food in their hand but don’t even lift it to their mouth.(This verse speaks this also to me: For crying out loud Lisa! How much lettuce and fruit will rot in your kitchen before you get up and cut it. Get a knife and cut it open, very simple, very simple…and yes you have to cook the chicken today, and stop waiting for someone else to cut your fruit)
  65. Don’t break your promises to God. Don’t delay in following through with a promise you made to God, for God takes no pleasure in fools. Keep all the promises you make to him (Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay).
  66. Don’t be surprised if you see a poor person being oppressed by the powerful and if justice is being miscarried throughout the land. For every official is under orders from higher up, and matters of justice get lost in red tape and bureaucracy. (for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they)  God is still in charge and see’s everything
  67. Don’t desire what you don’t have, but enjoy what you have rather.Just dreaming about nice things is meaningless—like chasing the wind.
  68. Don’t be too good or too wise! Why destroy yourself? (Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself ? Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time? What is he saying here? Don’t kill yourself trying so hard to be perfect ? Ms. Superclean, can you put away the Lysol for a moment, I can’t breath, Mr.ocd….. if the frame is out of place, take a deep breath and keep walking…..just thoughts, just thoughts….)
  69. Don’t be too wicked either. Don’t be a fool! Why die before your time? 
  70. Don’t try to avoid doing your duty, and don’t stand with those who plot evil, for the king can do whatever he wants
  71. Don’t be lazy in the kitchen. Lazy people don’t even cook the game they catch, but the diligent make use of everything they find.  (2-3x in bible)oookay then….
  72. Don’t let your hearts be taken by an immoral woman. Don’t wander down her wayward path. (And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart. (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house: Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)  So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him, I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows…..For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her. Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death )
  73. Don’t go near her house, stay away from her! Don’t lust for her beauty. Don’t let her coy glances seduce you. (For the lips of a strange (immoral) woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:  But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell. Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.) (2+)
  74. Don’t be greedy, for it will lead you to poverty. Greedy people try to get rich quick but don’t realize they’re headed for poverty.
  75. Don’t wait until your last breath to remember your Creator. Yes, remember your Creator now while you are young, before the silver cord of life snaps and the golden bowl is broken. Don’t wait until the water jar is smashed at the spring and the pulley is broken at the well (Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it)
  76. Don’t ignore the poor. The godly care about the rights of the poor; the wicked don’t care at all.
  77. Don’t act quickly, without thinking. Wise people think before they act; fools don’t—and even brag about their foolishness. 

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

With Love,
King Solomon

Bible verses about Healing. He heals me.

HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD

• By His stripes, we were healed: Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness, by whose stripes ye were healed. 1 peter 2:24

He is the Lord, our Healer – Exodus 15:26 … I am the Lord that heals you. Exodus 23:25 Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you. And the LORD will take away from you all sickness, and will afflict you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which you have known, but will lay them on all those who hate you. (Deu 7:15)

• He took our sickness and He heals all manner of sickness and disease. That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. And Jesus went about all Galilee… healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. Matthew 4:23 Matthew 8:17 Matthew 8:17 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. (Isa 53:)17.

• There is healing in His Word. He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions. (Ps 107:20).

Bring your thoughts into captivity to the Obedience to Christ – the weapons He gives you are mighty in God. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, (2 Cor 10:4-5)

The Lord will hear your prayers and save the sick. May you prosper in health as your soul prospers. Ask Him with confidence; for healing is His will for those who keep His commandments and to those things that are pleasing in His sight Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. (3 John 1:2 ) Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. (James 5:14-15) Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. (1 John 5:14-15) Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God. And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight. (1 John 3:21-22)

• I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the LORD has done. Psalm 118:17

• Strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. Make level paths for your feet, so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed Hebrews 12:12-13, psalm 30

Ask Him with confidence. Believe on Him and ask in His name. He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed. Dear friends, if we don’t feel guilty, we can come to God with bold confidence. And we will receive from him whatever we ask because we obey him and do the things that please him. “Verily, Verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also, and greater works than these shall he do, because I go unto my Father, and whatever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son, If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it” . 1 Peter2:24 John 14:12-14

• Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. Is 58:8

The devil wants to kill you; God wants to heal you- take up your armor and fight – chose life that you may live. “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. (John 10:) Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; (Eph 6:10-17) “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; Deut 30:19

God wants to heal you. For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. (Phil 2:13) . And behold, a leper came and worshipped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean. Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. (Mat 8:2-3)

The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies Psalm 41:2

Let the weak say, I am strong “But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,” declares the Lord. I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal My people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security. I will give you back your health and heal your wounds, says the Lord. And the Lord will protect you from all sickness. “You must serve only the Lord your God, if you do, I will bless you with food and water and I will protect you from illness.” Jeremiah 30:17 Joel 3:10 Jeremiah 33:6 Deut 7:15 Exodus 23:25: Have Faith, Trust In Him Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. (Heb 10:23) Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. (Heb 10:35) Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Heb 13:8) We walk by faith, not by sight Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:23-24

There is no fear for those in Christ: For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. (2 Tim 1:7) The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe ps 29:25

Speak out His Words- they are life and health to all who find them. My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. (Prov 4:20-22) So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. Is 55;11 

His Words Heal: My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart. For they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body A merry heart is good like a medicine: but a broken spirit dries the bones. My son, do not forget My teaching, but keep My commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. Prov. 4:20-23: Proverbs 17:22 Proverbs 3:1-2

Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’” (Joel 3:10 NKJV)

Ask for prayer: “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. (Mat 18:19) “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; “they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” (Mark 16:17-18 ) 2 Corinthians 1:11” as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.” Ps 119:154 Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to thy word

Believe. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. (Mark 11:24) Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. (Mat 18:18)

Believe and Say it. So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. (Mark 11:22-23 ) A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones Prov 17:22 –(keep your attitude in check – not doubting)

Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases ; The righteous person faces many troubles but the Lord comes to rescue each time. For the Lord protects the bones of the righteous, not one of them is broken. The Lord nurses them when they are sick and restores them to health. Do not dread the disease that stalks in the darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. He sent out his word and healed them, snatching them from the door of death. Let them praise the Lord for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them. Let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving and sing joyfully about his glorious acts. O Lord my God, I called to You for help and You healed me. Ps 103-3 PS 34:19. Ps 41:3 Ps 91:6 Ps 107;20 Psalm 30:2

• Yet is was our weakness he carried, it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God a punishment for his own sin! But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole and He was whipped so we could be healed . So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak… But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up on wings as eagles, they shall run and not grow weary, they shall walk and not faint Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way; say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, He will come with vengeance; with divine retribution He will come to save you.” Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. It is the same with my word, I send it out and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it Yet it was our weaknesses he carried, it was our sorrows that weighed him down. …but he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins, He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. Is 51:4-5 Is 53:4 Is 55:11 Isaiah 35:3-4 Isaiah 40:29; 31 Isaiah 58:8 Isaiah 41:10 Psalm 103:2-3 Mark 16:17-John 10:10 Deuteronomy 28:1-14, 61 Romans 4:17-20I Kings 8:56 Ephesians 6:10-17Philippians 4:6-7Isaiah 41:10 Jeremiah 1:12 Hebrews 11:11 Joel 3:10 Matthew 8:2-3 Matthew 8:17

• Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy reward.Is 58:8

He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint Is 40:29-31

• For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. (2 Cor 1:20 “Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psa 103:1-5)

Work out your salvation with trembling. Phil 2 (William Booth- it’s time to reach out to the lost- warning others every day)

The backslider in heart will be filled with his own ways,
But a good man will be satisfied from above.
 
The simple believes every word,

But the prudent considers well his steps.

Yesterday morning I was waking up from a dream and I saw Jesus before me. It seemed like I had just watched a live version of the bible stories up until Noah’s day. As I was waking up I could see before me a fast moving flood of water and in it were many people. I also saw bits and pieces of wood, their material things – just everything scattered among the people moving quickly in the water’s current. It was a great and strong current moving very quickly, everything had been engulfed in it. I was standing and watching everything moving past me, I looked up I saw Jesus on the other side. (He was either on the other side or above the waters off to a distance) I heard him say “I call them back” I saw a few more things I can’t explain. The dream was similar to the vision William Booth had that I have posted above. (I shared this with a friend Marilyn who told me about William Booths vision.)

   Listen: There are ways that seem right to a man, but it leads straight to death. Those who fill their minds and hearts with their own ways and ideas will drift away from the truth.  The bible warns us that many fall because they believe every word they hear, but the wise man looks well and considers the words. The wise man fears the Lord and works out his salvation with trembling. He runs away from evil, but the foolish stand proud and arrogant. Which one are you?

The backslider in heart will be filled with his own ways,
But a good man will be satisfied from above.
 
The simple believes every word,

But the prudent considers well his steps.
 A wise man fears and departs from evil,
But a fool rages and is self-confident.
 The simple inherit folly,
But the prudent are crowned with knowledge.
Can anyone hide himself in secret places,
So I shall not see him?” says the Lord;
“Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord
Jer 23, Prov. 16:25,14:11-16

Are you walking in the Spirit or Walking in the Flesh?
            One leads to life and the other leads to death. Those who practice the works of the flesh will not inherit the kingdom of God. These two are always fighting against each other. The works of the flesh are: adultery, fornication sexual sin is a sin against your whole body, no other sin affects the body like this one, uncleanness, lewdness,  idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,  envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like. If these are prevalent in your life, it’s time to change and crucify our fleshy lusts and desires- get rid of them, crucify them!  Walking in the flesh will lead you straight to eternal destruction.  Ask the Lord for help, He knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations. He has reserved the unjust unto the day of judgment for punished: Don’t walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness .

  Living in the Spirit is living and walking in love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness, self-control.  But be careful Super Christians – work our your salvation with trembling, don’t envy others and don’t become conceited or prideful. Gal 5:16.

Even Noah was moved by fear, do these words make your tremble or do you sit back at ease?  By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. Hebrews 11:7- Noah trembled at the Words of God and was moved in faith to obey.  I fear too many of us have lost the Fear of the Lord, we sit back and enjoy each day doing this and doing that- just like the people in Noah’s day. We go about content in our own ways. Who fears the Lord? Who is working out their salvation? Who is crucifying the lusts of the flesh? or who is making excuses?

   Genesis 6-8  “The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.”  

When the Lord comes back we will be going about our business just as in the days of Noah and Lot: eating, drinking, marrying, buying, selling, planting, building and soon the flood/brimstone came and destroyed them ALL.  The Lord saved Noah- just one righteous man and his family. He can save you too- but are you willing to give up the lusts of your flesh and stop following your own ways? Notice how God is both kind and severe. He is severe toward those who disobeyed, but kind to you if you continue to trust in his kindness. But if you stop trusting, you also will be cut off.  Be patient as you wait for the Lord’s return. Consider the farmers who patiently wait for the rains in the fall and in the spring. They eagerly look for the valuable harvest to ripen.  You, too, must be patient. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.Take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near. James 5:7,Luke 17 Matt 24

  Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Don’t get caught up in the filth of the World

If God didn’t spare the old world, what makes you think He can stand to listen to us one more day? The flood in Noah’s day and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah are warnings to us. The people destroyed were living immoral lives and their conversations were filthy “vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked”- that sounds like today.  Listen to this verse that followsFor that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds” Is it CONTAGIOUS? Does the filth around you bother you or do you barely notice it? The filth around us can corrupts us, the words we hear can corrupt us- just like King Solomon said in Proverbs 4:23- Guard your heart, for out of it flow the issues of Life. To guard our heart is to guard our words, be careful in what we see, what we hear, what we do and where we go. These are the ways to guard your heart. 2 Peter 2:5-22

Be Careful what you hear, stay in the Word 

        Before we point a finger, consider this verse: Don’t grumble about each other, or you will be judged. For look—the Judge is standing at the door! Instead, ask what can I work on?  Works! agh, but we don’t need to work…right? Be careful, for the new grace and prosperity teachers are twisting God’s Word. Certainly, we are saved by God’s grace, but some have corrupted and abused this message…. 2 Peter 2 warns us that the ungodly and those walking according to the flesh are all around us. They feast with us and continue to live in their sin, with eyes full of adultery, envy,  and greed. They have forsaken the right way. According to the next verse, it seems he is talking about the leaders, who with charismatic speech and great words manipulate and teach in error.  

”  For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh (You’ll be rich!), through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. …. it has happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again.” 1Peter 3

    Don’t call out Lord! Lord! If you are not going to do the things He says. He tells us that if we love Him, we will obey Him. I don’t hear that in the new Grace and Prosperity teachings. We are to OBEY. Grace and prosperity voodoo teachings wont cover up deliberate disobedience. Haven’t you heard?

         For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.  Heb 10:26-27

           In other words, there is no sacrifice that will cover deliberate and willful sinning.

 Matthew 7:21-29  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. 

He is calling you back! Come back! Come back!  I saw the Lord reaching out to a man who was entangled with sin. Demonic strongholds were trying to cut off every outflow to the Lord and keep him captive. I was amazed to see how the Lord reached out to Him- as if he was his only child. If you understood how much the Lord loves you and calls out to you- would begin to change? He reaches out to us, but so many are entangled with demonic strongholds and lies. Another time I saw the Lord reaching out to someone living in sin- but they felt so bad and unworthy they wouldn’t turn around. Stop and listen- He wants you back, He is reaching out for you. Reach up and get your help from Him, don’t allow your mind to think anything but the truth. Phil 4:8

Jesus said :“I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned. But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father”
