The Reconciliation of Our Family

Posted on July 20, 2016 by


sss3  I would like to take a minute and  point  out the things that Christians, Muslims, and Hebrews have in common in our beliefs. We are a unique group of people because so many people are uncommitted to faith today. They go from one idea to another. They are led by the news of the day. We, on the other hand, are more stable. We have chosen a path to follow. We have a life with instructions and we try on a daily basis to follow God in our heart. We have a still, small voice which leads us to righteous living. Abraham believed in the Lord, and God accounted it to him for righteousness. Genesis 15 NKJV  This is righteousness by faith that saves the soul of mankind. There was nothing that Abraham did. He simply believed what God said.

First and foremost we worship God. We believe in the very same God, but with a different interpretation.  We believe He is all powerful, all knowing, and is a Spirit Being Who is everywhere all the time, throughout all of eternity. He is here guiding His creatures to His ultimate goal, “a sinless world.” We all believe the Old Testament. We, Muslim’s even believe some of the New Testament. We are all looking for a Savior. The Hebrew and Muslim is looking for their Savior to come and the Christian is looking for their King and Savior to return.

We pray. Everyone of us pray on a daily basis. We have a personal relationship with God through prayer.

We study to increase our knowledge and understanding of God. Everyone of us read our Bible every day. We are seekers of the truth.

We try to lead exemplary lives.  We try to set a good example for others to follow. We live our lives in accordance with the laws of God.

We have faith. Regardless of what and how we believe, we have faith in God.

The Quran tells it’s followers to believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Psalms,  and the Torah. “It is He quran-wallpaperWho sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book ( the Bible), confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law, (the Torah) and the Gospel (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong),” (3:3). “The word of thy Lord doth find its fulfillment in truth and in justice: None can change His words: for He is the one who heareth and knoweth all,” (6:115).  Please see supplemental.

The Torah is full of predictions of the coming of Jesus Christ. Please see the article  The Central Theme of the Bible.  When the  Old Testament speaks of the Angel of the Lord, it is talking about none other than the pre-incarnate Jesus Christ. In the Gospels Jesus states that He is the Son of God. He came here not to take control of the earth but to save what had been loss. He is the man that sits on the right hand of God the Father. He is our Mediator and He has provided us a Counselor and Comforter, the Holy Spirit. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”  Romans 10:13  KJV    Someone once said, “We all worship the same God. We just serve Him differently. Ponds, streams, rivers, lakes and oceans all have a different name, but they all contain water. Religions have different names  and they all contain some truth  expressed in different ways, forms and times. Therefore it shouldn’t matter whether we are Muslim, Jew or Christian. When we believe in God, we should believe that all people are from one family. If we love God, we can’t love only some of His children.

As “religions” go this is true, however I don’t believe in “religion.” I believe in the revelation of Jesus Christ. I believe that the Quran and the Torah point to Christ. I want to see through the eyes of God so I can understand where He is coming from. I want to be able to understand His point of view. I want to hear with His ears the prayers of all of us. We are in search of a few basic desires, which are peace on earth, men showing good will toward others, and eternal life. I want to be in His arms so I can enjoy His magnificent love, forever.

We need to give Christianity its rightful place among religions. It is the pinnacle of the pyramid of all religions. It is the purest form because righteousness and justice are the foundations of His throne. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12 KJV  We are promised that in the end all things will be made right.  Please do not  take my word, or anyone else’s word, as to what truth is. Find out for yourself. Don’t limit yourself to what others construe as the only truth.  “Let God be true but every man a liar.” Romans 3:4 NKJV   Yes, I study the New Testament of the Bible, but I also study the Quran and the Torah. I want the whole truth as God has revealed it to me. I do not want another man’s beliefs. I want to find out for myself and judge for myself Whom I should put my faith in. Please spend some time with God every day and search out the truth for yourself. My prayer is that I will see each and every one of you in heaven where all the evil days here on earth will be behind us.

And He will teach him the Book and the Wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel 3:48

O People of the Book, why do you dispute about Abraham, when the Torah and the Gospel were not revealed till after him? Do you not understand? 3:65

And We sent after them in their footsteps Jesus, son of Mary, verifying that which was before him of the Torah; and We gave him the Gospel containing guidance and light, and verifying that which was before it of the Torah, and a guidance and an admonition for the dutiful. 5:46

And let the People of the Gospel judge by that which Allah has revealed in it. And whoever judges not by what Allah has revealed, those are the transgressors. 5:47

And if they had observed the Torah and the Gospel and that which is revealed to them from their Lord, they would certainly have eaten from above them and from beneath their feet. There is a party of them keeping to the moderate course; and most of them — evil is that which they do. 5:66

Say: O People of the Book, you follow no good till you observe the Torah and the Gospel and that which is revealed to you from your Lord. And surely that which has been revealed to thee from thy Lord will make many of them increase in inordinacy and disbelief; so grieve not for the disbelieving people. 5:68

When Allah will say: O Jesus, son of Mary, remember My favor to thee and to thy mother, when I strengthened thee with the Holy Spirit; thou spoke to people in the cradle and in old age, and when I taught thee the Book and the Wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel, and when thou didst determine out of clay a thing like the form of a bird by My permission, then thou didst breathe into it and it became a bird by My permission; and thou didst heal the blind and the leprous by My permission; and when thou didst raise the dead by My permission; and when I withheld the Children of Israel from thee when thou came to them with clear arguments — but those of them who disbelieved said: This is nothing but clear enchantment. 5:110

Those who follow the Messenger-Prophet, the Ummi, whom they find mentioned in the Torah and the Gospel. He enjoins them good and forbids them evil, and makes lawful to them the good things and prohibits for them impure things, and removes from them their burden and the shackles which were on them. So those who believe in him and honor him and help him, and follow the light which has been sent down with him — these are the successful. 7-157

Surely Allah has bought from the believers their persons and their property — theirs (in return) is the Garden. They fight in Allah’s way, so they slay and are slain. It is a promise which is binding on Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Quran. And who is more faithful to his promise than Allah? Rejoice therefore in your bargain which you have made. And that is the mighty achievement.  9:111

The Gospel of Jesus Christ

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was in the beginning with God.  All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.  And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.  He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.  But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:  who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:1-14

   No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:13-17

  For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure.  The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand.  He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” John 3:34-36

   No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.  It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me. John 6:44-45

 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6

  Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.  John 14:10-11

Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. John 16:7-10

 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.  In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.  And where I go you know, and the way you know.” John 14:1-4
