We offer this knowledge to you from the returned Messiah, imparted through the Ecumenical order of Christ
( سورة الزخرف , Az-Zukhruf, Chapter #43, Verse #63) “And when ‘Îsa (Jesus) came with (Our) clear Proofs, he said: “I have come to you with Al-Hikmah (Prophethood), and in order to make clear to you some of the (points) in which you differ. Therefore fear Allah and obey me.”
- Christ is the spiritual son of Allah
- Unity destined for the Abrahamic faiths
- No messenger of Allah was infallible, Christ makes the necessary corrections
- All the Holy scripture are intended for every servant of God
- The nature of the Spirit
- Some Hadith are correct, but Christ is most important in prophecy
In Islam is it taught of Isa (Jesus / Yeshua), that he is not the begotten son of God, in the Gospels what may seem contrary is taught, that he is in fact the son of God. These teachings are both true, but also both commonly misinterpreted.
Luke 1:32-35 “He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, how shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.”
The understanding that comes from this is that this child from Mary will be called the Son of God, and he will be conceived from the Spirit of God. And from the next verse we can see that not only is Christ the spiritual son of God, but also those who love him, are heirs of his kingdom.
James 2:5 “Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?”
Christ is a spirit son of God, not a begotten son in body. It is not the body of Christ that is God’s son, but it is the spiritual creation that was placed in the virgin Mary. The spirit sent in her was the true son of God. Isa did not have a human Father, he was conceived by the spirit, this spirit begotten from God.
( سورة النساء , An-Nisa, Chapter #4, Verse #171) “O people of the Scripture! Do not exceed the limits in your religion, nor say of Allah aught but the truth. The Messiah ‘Îsa, son of Maryam, was a Messenger of Allah and His Word, which He bestowed on Maryam and a spirit created by Him; so believe in Allah and His Messengers. Say not: “Three!” Cease! It is better for you. For Allah is One Ilah (God), glory be to Him (Far Exalted is He) above begetting a son. To Him belong all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is All-Sufficient as a Disposer of affairs.”
God has begotten sons, yes. But in matters of spirit very little is known, nor explained to Muslims. So they must become open to correction and clarification on this topic, because even the Quran explains this lack of knowledge in matters of the spirit.
( سورة الإسراء , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #85) “And they ask you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم) concerning the Ruh (the spirit); Say: “The Ruh (the spirit) is one of the things, the knowledge of which is only with my Lord. And of knowledge, you (mankind) have been given only a little.”
It is the Islamic tradition that Muhammad, as an Arab, is descended from Abraham’s son Ishmael. Jewish tradition also equates the descendants of Ishmael, Ishmaelites, with Arabs, as the descendants of Isaac by Jacob, who was also later known as Israel, are the Israelites. This is an example of the unity that is destined to the descendants of Abraham:
Jeremiah 33:24-26 Considerest thou not what this people have spoken, saying, The two families which the LORD hath chosen, he hath even cast them off? thus they have despised my people, that they should be no more a nation before them. Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them.
And the timing of this is appointed to the when the Messiah (descended from the line of David) is established as their righteous judge and ruler:
Jeremiah 33:14-16 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah. In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.
Being an integral part of this covenant with Abraham, those who are called follow Christ are those adopted into this covenant:
Hebrews 9:15 Because of this, he is The Mediator of The New Covenant, for in his death he is salvation to those who violated The First Covenant, that we, those who were called to eternal inheritance, would receive The Promise.
Part of this unity is what must be done for the people of the New Covenant:
Hebrews 8:10 But this is The Covenant that I shall give to the family of the house of Israel: After those days, says THE LORD JEHOVAH, I shall put my law in their minds and upon their hearts I shall write it, and I shall be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people.
Each of these religions believes that it is closest to the truth. It is clear that they all have the same core beliefs, but their main differences are caused by each religion’s failure to acknowledge the others’ main prophets. While the majority of the followers of the three Abrahamic faiths live together peacefully, some consider these minor differences enough to desire the extinction of the other. These differences have caused, and continue to result in, war and violence. Someday the three Abrahamic faiths can put an end to their differences and recognize the basic truth that resides in each of them.
( سورة يونس , Yunus, Chapter #10, Verse #19) Mankind were but one community, then they differed; and had not it been for a Word that went forth before from your Lord, it would have been settled between them regarding what they differed .
It is shown in all the scripture and holy texts of the Abrahamic religions that the prophets have made mistakes and are not infallible, the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is one such example, but an important one to take note of, because it is mentioned directly in the Quran that he does not make mistakes, even though this is a human impossibility:
( سورة النجم , An-Najm, Chapter #53, Verse #2) “your companion (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) has neither gone astray nor has erred.”
But in the next Quran quote from an earlier chapter, we can see the prophet asking for help in the incorrectness of his speech:
( سورة طه , Taha, Chapter #20, Verse #27) “And loose the knot (the defect) from my tongue, (i.e. remove the incorrectness from my speech) (Tafsir At-Tabari).”
And in the same chapter as first mentioned, as though he were commanded to correct his own words, here we can see the prophet being commanded by God to proclaim his humanity and meekness as a mere messenger.
( سورة فصلت , Fussilat, Chapter #53, Verse #6) “Say (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم): “I am only a human being like you. It is revealed to me that your Ilah (God) is One Ilah (God – Allah), therefore take Straight Path to Him and obedience to Him, and seek forgiveness of Him. And woe to Al-Mushrikun (the disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah).”
It is commonly known and accepted in all the remaining Abrahamic faiths (Judaism & Christianity) that prophets often make mistakes, and that God corrects them and their followers that have gone astray. Even while this is commonly known amongst Christians and Jews, it is uncommon knowledge among Muslims and they believe the contrary about their most notable prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Though as believers we must look to the books that predated our most revelations to gain further understanding. Let us not think so highly of ourselves that we cannot be deceived:
1 Corinthians 10:12 “From now on, whoever thinks that he stands, let him beware lest he fall.”
Mark 12:24 “Yeshua said to them, “Do you not therefore err, because you do not know the scriptures, nor the mighty work of God?”
1 Corinthians 3:18 “Let no man deceive himself; whoever among you thinks that he is wise in this world, let him become a fool that he may be wise.”
Muslims have been known to profess that a descendant of Ishmael, Muhammad (pbuh) was closest to God. Jews have been known to profess that a descendant of Isaac, Moses (pbuh) was closest to God. Both Ishmael and Isaac were descended from Abraham, and with the descendants of Abraham is the covenant from God Jehovah/Allah. Yet both are incorrect, since the prophet Moses (pbuh) is a commonly messenger among the Abrahamic faiths, here are his words ordained from God:
Deuteronomy 18:15 “The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;”
A prophet, like God; surely this was not Muhammad, as he was a self admitted mere messenger. And even though the Quran says something different of Yeshua (Isa/Jesus) the Christ, claiming that there are no partners with God and that he too was a mere messenger, there are teachings contrary to this in the Gospels (al-Anajeel) and the books of the prophets (Nevi’im/Al-Hikmah):
John 12:44-46 “But Yeshua cried and said, ‘Whoever trusts in me, trusts not in me, but in him who sent me. And whoever sees me sees him who has sent me. I, The Light, have come to the world, that no one who believes in me shall abide in darkness.’”
Isaiah 42:1-9 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.
2 Corinthians 5:17-18 “All that is in The Messiah is therefore The New Creation; the old order has passed away to such. And everything has become new from God — he who reconciled us to himself in The Messiah, and he has given us the Ministry of the reconciliation.”
One in whom where trust is placed, who brings judgment to the Gentiles, in God’s servant a reconciliation, this is Christ, and in him the old order is made new. You see from this and many other Biblical references, that Christ was and is much more than a mere prophet, he is sent from God as a servant through the line of King David to judge and rule righteously as a King:
Jeremiah 23:5 “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.”
God’s chosen people, even while they have the teachings and writings of old, through prophets they are corrected. Depicted in the Torah and Quran, we can see that God’s favor is dependent on his will and the actions of the people:
2 Chronicles 24:20 “And the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest, which stood above the people, and said unto them, Thus saith God, Why transgress ye the commandments of the LORD, that ye cannot prosper? because ye have forsaken the LORD, he hath also forsaken you.”
( سورة المائدة , Al-Maeda, Chapter #5, Verse #54) “O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns back from his religion, Allah will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the Way of Allah, and never fear of the blame of the blamers. That is the Grace of Allah which He bestows on whom He wills. And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower.”
Christ has come back, and he is the messenger of God today. So we must take heed of his corrections, this is the final opportunity in this, because not only has he come as a messenger and intercessor for us to God, but he also come to judge and rule over us as God’s appointed King. Like the past, but much more severe and urgent are his corrections today:
( سورة الزخرف , Az-Zukhruf, Chapter #43, Verse #61-63) “And most surely there is knowledge, the coming of Isa shall be a Sign for the the Hour of Judgment. “Therefore have no doubt, but follow Me: this is the straight and correct path.” Let not the Evil One turn you aside, surely he is an enemy against you. When Isa came with Clear Signs, he said: “Now have I come to you with Wisdom, and to make plain some of that concerning which you differ. So keep your duty to Allah, and obey me.””
Proverbs 15:22 “Those who disregard discipline despise themselves, but the one who heeds correction gains understanding.”
Heed the warnings of the prophets; these remain true to this day until the end:
Leviticus 26:23-24 “If in spite of these things you do not accept my correction but continue to be hostile toward me, I myself will be hostile toward you and will afflict you for your sins seven times over.”
As it was mentioned before in the first chapter, in the Quran very little is known of the spirit, admittedly:
( سورة الإسراء , Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #85) “The Ruh (the spirit) is one of the things, the knowledge of which is only with my Lord. And of knowledge, you (mankind) have been given only a little.”
But in the Gospels (Al-Anajeel) much more is explained about the nature of the spirit:
John 3:5-8 “Yeshua answered and said to him: “Timeless truth I am telling you: “If a person is not born from water and The Spirit, it is impossible that he shall enter the Kingdom of God. That which is born from flesh is flesh, and that which is born from The Spirit is spirit. Do not be surprised that I said to you that all of you must be born again. The Spirit breathes where he will, and you hear his voice, but you do not know from where he comes and where he goes; thus is everyone who is born from The Spirit.”
And to us RayElites, the returned Messiah has given clarification of this topic more completely. Being born from water is just the same as being born in this world, from the mother’s birth canal. Being born from spirit is similar, in that it is like being born in the world, but really it is more like being born in the next world, from a canal of light. You see in this world, we are born from flesh, but in the next, we are born from spirit.
And like those spirits which have no tangible nature to those of us in flesh, when we are born in the spirit, so too will we become.
John 5:11-15 “Timeless truth I speak to you: The things that We know We are speaking and the things that We see We are testifying, and Our testimony all of you do not accept. If I have told all of you that which is in the earth and you are not believing, how shall you believe me if I tell you that which is in Heaven? And no man has gone up to Heaven except he who went down from Heaven: The Son of Man — he who is in Heaven. And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, thus The Son of Man is going to be lifted up, So that every person who believes in him shall not be lost, but shall have eternal life.”
When the son of man (Christ Yeshua/Prophet Isa) ascended to heaven, he had a task given to him that only he could fulfill, and this task was necessary for him to complete in order to offer eternal live to those that believe in him:
Revelation 1:18 “I am he who lived and died, and behold, I am alive to the eternity of eternities, amen, and I have the key of Death and of Sheol.”
Christ had to die and retrieve what were called keys of Hades, because these were the answer to allowing trapped souls a release from the prison of this realm of trapped souls. Only those who were already ascended, like Elijah and Ezekiel and Enoch, were of those that could incarnate to Earth from Heaven. But from the time of Christ’s ascension with Keys in his possession, the way to heaven and reincarnation was made available to most anyone that believes.
( سورة الزخرف , Az-Zukhruf, Chapter #43, Verse #61) “And he [‘Îsa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)] shall be a known sign for (the coming of) the Hour (Day of Resurrection) [i.e. ‘Isa’s (Jesus) descent on the earth]. Therefore have no doubt concerning it (i.e. the Day of Resurrection). And follow Me (Allah) (i.e. be obedient to Allah and do what He orders you to do, O mankind)! This is the Straight Path (of Islamic Monotheism, leading to Allah and to His Paradise).”
Sahih Muslim Book 41, Hadith 7015 “Allah would send Christ, son of Mary, and he will descend with the white minaret, east of Damascus”
East of Damascus Gate in Jerusalem, and at the white minaret, the Ghawanima Minaret next to the Dome of the Rock. There was seen the Christ descending on the wings of two angels this site in Jerusalem. This evidence can be found with a simple youtube search of the exact date January 28th, 2011.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 3, Book 43, Number 656 “he will break the cross, kill the pigs”
Since the time Christ has returned, and with the permission of Allah, he has been attacking American Christianity and American Christians with a powerful rebuke, and powerful weather disasters, thereby fulfilling the Sahih Bukhari Volume 3, Book 43, Number 656 prophecy. Though some Hadith are fulfilled and others may not ever be fulfilled, this has caused many to disbelieve. Some would prefer that Al-Mahdi make himself known first, also that Djjal be executed by the Christ. While these things have occurred, the evidence provided about them has not been to the liking of many Muslims who are looking for more Hadith fulfillment. Just as the past repeats itself, it does so again in many of the Muslims, Christians, and Jews of today; even while they have received clear signs and proof to the contrary:
( سورة البقرة , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #253) “Those Messengers! We preferred some of them to others; to some of them Allah spoke (directly); others He raised to degrees (of honour); and to ‘Îsa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), We gave clear proofs and evidence, and supported him with Ruh-ul-Qudus [Jibrael (Gabriel)]. If Allah had willed, succeeding generations would not have fought against each other, after clear Verses of Allah had come to them, but they differed – some of them believed and others disbelieved. If Allah had willed, they would not have fought against one another, but Allah does what He likes.”
( سورة يونس , Yunus, Chapter #10, Verse #74) “Then after him We sent (many) messengers to their peoples: they brought them clear signs, but they would not believe what they had already rejected beforehand. Thus do We seal the hearts of the transgressors.”
( سورة آل عمران , Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #55) And when Allah said: “O ‘Îsa! I will take you and raise you to Myself and clear you of those who disbelieve, and I will make those who follow you superior to those who disbelieve till the Day of Resurrection. Then you will return to Me and I will judge between you in the matters in which you used to dispute.”
