VIDEO All Muslims Hate Jesus Christ the Son of God YAHWEH of Israel – Bible vs Quran

The Endless Love of Jesus Ministries

Apr 27, 2016

Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh – Jesus says “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I AM”, (John 13:13). “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father [God]” (John 14:9). “I and the Father [God] are one” (John 10:30).


Jesus is far more than God’s mere messenger. Jesus Christ is God’s one and only Son (John 3:16-18). Further, He is the Second Person of the Trinity, God incarnate—God Himself (John 1:1,14; 5:18). Jesus claimed to be both “the Lord” and “God”’

No one can deny that Muslims reject the biblical Jesus. Yet it was Jesus Himself who warned all men, “If you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins” (John 8:24).

The Christian Jewish Jesus Christ is God in the Flesh and the Muslim jesus is Allah/satan = antichrist.

Muslims Believe their Muslim Jesus will return and break all the Crosses and Declare he never Died on the Cross, Then Kill all the Christians and Jews, Then bring Muhammad back to life, Then establish Shariah law, Then Marry and have children for 40 years then die, Clearly Islam and Christianity know two Completely Opposite Jesus’s.

Islam hates Jesus Christ because the god of Islam is the father of lies.

The god of Islam is called Allah and the God of Christianity is called Yahweh and they are Not the Same.

The jesus of Islam is Muslim and the Jesus Christ of Christianity is God’s – Yahweh’s Only Son and they are Not the Same.

Jesus Christ Says ” “If you love Me, keep My commandments”

“If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father (God) will love him, and We will come to him (Holy Spirit) and make Our home with him. John 14:15 & John 14:23

Jesus Christ Says – “Whoever listens to you listens to me; whoever rejects you rejects me; but whoever rejects me rejects him (God) who sent me.” Luke 10:16.

Jesus Christ Says – “There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day” John 12:48.

Jesus Christ Says – “Whoever denies Me (As the Son of God Who Paid for the Sins of Mankind) I will also deny before My Father (God) who is in Heaven. Matthew 10:33.

John 1:1 – In the beginning was the Word (Jesus Christ) and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (Jesus Christ). And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us (Jesus Christ is God in the Flesh) – John 1:14

The Quran affirms the inspiration, preservation, and authority of the Christian scriptures (including the Torah and the Gospel). Yet the Quran contradicts the Christian scriptures on fundamental doctrines (e.g., Jesus’ death, resurrection, and deity). By affirming scriptures that contradict Islam, the Quran self-destructs.

The decision to accept or reject Jesus Christ as Savior is the ultimate life decision. Why do many people choose to reject Jesus as Savior? There are perhaps as many different reasons for rejecting Christ as there are people who reject Him, but the following four reasons can serve as general categories:

1) Some people do not think they need a savior. These people consider themselves to be “basically good” and do not realize that they, like all people, are sinners who cannot come to God on their own terms. But Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). Those who reject Christ will not be able to stand before God and successfully plead their own case on their own merits.

2) The fear of social rejection or persecution deters some people from receiving Christ as Savior. The unbelievers in John 12:42-43 would not confess Christ because they were more concerned with their status among their peers than doing God’s will. These were the Pharisees whose love of position and the esteem of others blinded them, “for they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God.”

3) For some people, the things that the present world has to offer are more appealing than eternal things. We read the story of such a man in Matthew 19:16-23. This man was not willing to lose his earthly possessions in order to gain an eternal relationship with Jesus (see also 2 Corinthians 4:16-18).

4) Many people are simply resisting the Holy Spirit’s attempts to draw them to faith in Christ. Stephen, a leader in the early church, told those who were about to murder him, “You stiff-necked people, with uncircumcised hearts and ears! You are just like your fathers: You always resist the Holy Spirit!” (Acts 7:51). The apostle Paul made a similar statement to a group of gospel rejecters in Acts 28:23-27.

Whatever the reasons why people reject Jesus Christ, their rejection has disastrous eternal consequences. “There is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” than the name of Jesus Christ (The Son of God) (Acts 4:12), and those who reject Him, for whatever reason, face an eternity in the “outer darkness” of hell where there will be “weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 25:30).

Helicopter Seeds

Unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. John 12:24

When our children were young, they loved trying to catch the “helicopter seeds” that fell from our neighbor’s silver maple trees. Each seed resembles a wing. In late spring they twirl to the ground like a helicopter’s rotor blades. The seeds’ purpose is not to fly, but to fall to earth and grow into trees.

Before Jesus was crucified, He told His followers, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. . . . [U]nless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds” (John 12:23–24).

Lord Jesus, we are amazed by Your love. Give us grace to serve You today as we long to do.

While Jesus’s disciples wanted Him to be honored as the Messiah, He came to give His life so we could be forgiven and transformed through faith in Him.  As Jesus’s followers, we hear His words, “Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me” (vv. 25–26).

Helicopter seeds can point us to the miracle of Jesus, the Savior, who died that we might live for Him.

Lord Jesus, we are amazed by Your love. Give us grace to serve You today as we long to do.

Jesus calls us to give our lives in serving Him.

INSIGHT

Our passage today occurs shortly after Jesus’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. On that day Jesus rode into town on a donkey’s colt as a large crowd, who had traveled to the city to celebrate the Passover, threw palm branches on the road before Him shouting, “ ‘Hosanna!’ ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!’ ” (John 12:12–15). Though Jesus came as a king, He knew that the people cheering Him on were expecting a savior to free them from Rome, not a savior who would suffer for their sins. He was the kernel of wheat who must die so His kingdom could grow (v. 24).

Causes of Rebellion

Romans 6:12-14

In God’s eyes, anyone who sins is rebellious, and Scripture tells us we’re all guilty (Rom. 3:23). Now, it makes sense that an unbeliever would choose to act apart from biblical teaching. But what about those of us who have committed to follow Christ—what would cause us to stray from the will of our heavenly Father?

There are two powerful human tendencies that lead to disobedience: doubt and pride. Both can be dangerously misleading.

1. Doubt is a mental struggle over whether or not to believe God’s promises. From our limited perspective, we cannot understand how the Lord works. Sometimes His way does not feel like the right path, so in order to obey, we must step out in faith. Then it can feel as though we are jumping off a cliff and trusting God’s invisible rope to hold us. If we listen to our doubt, we will surely transgress.

2. Pride is the sin that caused Satan to fall from heaven, and it is a deceptive obstacle for believers as well. Pride has to do with thinking that our way is best, putting more faith in our ability than God’s promises, and desiring praise. Anything we do out of pride is rebellion against the Lord.

Whatever the cause, sin never leads to the Lord’s best for our life. God’s way is the only road resulting in fulfillment and peace.

The enemy wants to lure us with doubt and pride—both feel right and are easily justifiable from our human perspective. But believers should follow Joshua’s wisdom instead: “Choose for yourselves today whom you will serve … but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Josh. 24:15).

The Names of the Men

“And these are the names of the men that shall stand with you: of the tribe of Reuben; Elizur the son of Shedeur.” (Numbers 1:5)

These are the first entries in several long lists of names here in the book of Numbers—all names of men in the 12 tribes of Israel. We know nothing about most of these men except their names, so it is natural to wonder why God had Moses include them in the inspired Scriptures.

In fact, this is one of the objections that skeptics and liberals have raised against the doctrine of verbal inspiration of the Bible. What possible spiritual or doctrinal or practical purpose could be accomplished through these lists of names for any future readers of the Bible?

And there are, indeed, many such lists of names. For example, the first nine chapters of 1 Chronicles consist almost entirely of names. Then there are the lists in Ezra 2; Ezra 10; Nehemiah 7, 11, and 12; Romans 16; and others.

Information is included about some of these people, of course, and even the meaning of the names may warrant speculation about their parents’ hopes for the children.

But there is also another very cogent reason for God to have included all these names of relatively less significant people in His book. He wants to assure us that He is interested not only in the Abrahams, Daniels, Pauls, and other great men in His Kingdom, but also in the Elizurs and Shedeurs and Bills and Kates in His spiritual family.

There are many millions of names “written in the Lamb’s book of life” (Revelation 21:27), and the heavenly Lamb—the Lord Jesus Christ—is also the Good Shepherd that “calleth his own sheep by name” (John 10:3). The names in His book here on Earth are an assurance that He knows and calls us by each of our names in His book in heaven. HMM

There is a remnant according to the election of grace

Elijah, when he fled from Jezebel, sought communion with the Lord at Horeb. He felt greatly aggrieved and sorely wounded in soul that, after the great decision of Carmel, Israel remained idolatrous, bound by a woman’s will to Baal and the calves: he therefore sought the loneliness of Horeb, wherein to give his indignation vent.

1 Kings 19:9-18

1 Kings 19:9

Thou, the brave Elijah, wherefore hast thou fled to this place? Leader in Israel, wherefore hast thou deserted thy post? There are none to instruct or rebuke in these rocky solitudes, what art thou doing in this place?

1 Kings 19:10

His sorrows were too much for him. He could have borne hunger, and thirst, and pain; but to see the. Lord blasphemed was more than his great spirit could brook. He seems vexed with the Lord for not interposing to save his servants, the prophets. His secret heart longs to see terrible things in righteousness by which the ungodly nation may be awed into adoration.

1 Kings 19:11

Come out of the cave, breathe the fresh air, and see what the Lord would teach thee.

1 Kings 19:12

Thus he learned that not by terrors and judgments are men’s hearts won to God, but by the gentler force of loving persuasion. Elijah was like earthquake and fire, and his ministry was powerful, but it was not successful; there needed a gentler soul, with more plaintive pleadings to win the revolting people to their God.

1 Kings 19:17

The best cure for depressed spirits is more work to do for God. Elijah soon recovered his cheerfulness when he had commissions to fulfil for the Lord he loved so well. After the lesson he had received, he did not again leave his field of labour through fear of Jezebel, but sternly fought the battles of the Lord till his time of service was ended. Moreover, great was his joy to find that in the apostate nation there was yet a faithful remnant, for the Lord said to him—

1 Kings 19:18

The Lord knows his own. They may be driven to hide themselves through cruel persecution, but they are not hidden from him. In these evil days, when Ritualism has set up her false gods, and turned the heart of our nation away from the gospel, be it ours to remain faithful unto the Lord; and in no sense or manner to aid or abet the wretched idolatries now so much in vogue. May we be among the thousands “which have not bowed unto Baal.”

 

Work Like a Farmer

2 Timothy 2:6

When Paul wrote to Timothy to encourage him to bravely face his battles, he first told Timothy to endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. Then Paul changed his illustration and exhorted Timothy to develop the mentality of a professional athlete. But suddenly the athletic talk stops, and Paul begins to instruct the younger minister to start thinking like a farmer! Second Timothy 2:6 says, “The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.”

Paul’s abrupt changes in his illustrations must have left Timothy’s mind whirling! Paul had already told him to endure and fight like a soldier, then to prepare and train like an athlete. But now he tells Timothy to work hard like a farmer!

It’s almost as if Paul says, “Timothy, you need to be a good soldier of Jesus Christ. Or let me give you another example: You need to train and prepare with the same determination and commitment an athlete possesses. Or here’s another illustration to help you understand: You need to be hardworking like a farmer. I KNOW! You need to be all three of these things! You must fight like a soldier, prepare and compete like an athlete, and work like a farmer! You must begin to view yourself as all three—a soldier, an athlete, and a farmer!”

When Paul writes Second Timothy 2:6, he uses words that convey images of farming life. For instance, the word “husbandman” is the Greek word georgos, the word for a farmer who tills the soil. Because Paul uses the word georgos (“husbandman”), there is no doubt that he has the varied activities of a farmer in his mind as he writes to Timothy.

As Paul begins to convey this idea to Timothy, he starts by talking about the hard work of a farmer. He says, “The husbandman that laboureth….” The word “laboureth” is the Greek word kopos, which always denotes the hardest, toughest kind of work. This presents the idea of a person who works to the end of his strength or to the point of physical exhaustion. This farmer is an individual who is giving every ounce of his strength to finish the task before him. Although he is weary, he keeps plodding on step after step, refusing to give up. Rejecting the temptation to throw in the towel, he keeps plowing the ground before him because the task must be done by someone.

The picture this word kopos suggests is of a farmer who labors in the heat of the afternoon sun during the hottest season of the year with sweat pouring down his face. Although the ground is like hard, dry clay and the work is strenuous, the farmer just keeps on plowing and sowing, plowing and sowing. After he finishes plowing one row of his garden, he turns at the end of the row and starts all over again on the next row. By the end of the day, the farmer is physically exhausted, mentally drained, drenched with perspiration, and covered with dirt. He has done a hard day’s work!

By using this illustration, Paul tells us to face the facts: If you’re going to reap a harvest, you have to get out in the field and do the job! If you will do your job faithfully like a hardworking farmer who wants to reap the benefits of a large crop, you will also reap an abundant crop of success and blessing.

Now we get to the rewarding part! The apostle Paul says, “The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.” This is God’s personal promise to anyone who puts his hand to the plow and works hard—and it is His special promise to you!

Paul says that if you are faithful to work in His Kingdom, you “… must be first partaker of the fruits.” The words “must be” in Greek is the word dei. It is always used to convey the idea of a necessity, an obligation, a requirement, a demand, or a rule to which there is absolutely no exception and that can never be broken. You could interpret the verse, “The husbandman that laboureth absolutely must be…” or “The husbandman that laboureth is obligated and under command….”

Paul tells what “must be” when he says, “The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.” In other words, God wants the committed, determined, hardworking believer to eat from the table of victory and to enjoy the sweet fruit of success before anyone else does!

 

When we look at the entire text of Second Timothy 2:3-6, we understand that God is telling us:

“If you will fight like a soldier; if you will prepare and compete like an athlete; and if you will put your heart and soul into working in your field the way a hardworking firmer does— here is what I will do for you. I am establishing a permanent rule—one that can never be changed, altered, or modifiedand I am making it a top priority and a necessity that when your battle is over and you’ve proven yourself to be a good soldier; when your spiritual opponents are defeated and you’ve won your competition; when you’ve plowed your fields and your crops begin to grow and mature before your eyes—you WILL eat before anyone else eats!”

You see, God wants you to eat and enjoy the fruit of your labors, just as a hardworking farmer does after giving his life to see his crops grow in his field. Your part is to work your land and labor strenuously to see your dream come to pass; then God promises that you will eventually eat the fruit of your hard work! As you focus on doing your job well, you can expect to be blessed, recognized, rewarded, and remunerated for your efforts, for God says that anyone who works hard and sticks with his project to the end deserves to eat the fruit!

Warriors deserve rewards. Good athletes earn recognition. Farmers have every right to eat their crops. And if you are living and fighting by faith to see a certain victory in your life, you can claim God’s promise that a day is coming when you will eat the sweet fruit of victory!

This message must have been very encouraging for Timothy. At that moment, he was so immersed in the conflicts that swirled around him that his mind must have easily become swamped with fears and concerns about what was happening to his congregation. But Paul’s encouraging message to Timothy is the same message God has for you today.

God is telling you, “If you will endure hardship as a good soldier; train and compete like a good athlete; plow your ground and work hard in the field where I have called you, no matter how hard or difficult it is—then I promise you that a day will come when things turn around. And on that day, you will be richly rewarded!”

MY PRAYER FOR TODAY

Lord, I am so blessed to know that You want me to eat the sweet fruit of victory. That knowledge makes me want to work my ground even harder to produce a great harvest for Your Kingdom. I know that in my own flesh, I will never be able to fulfill the dream You’ve given me. But by Your Spirit, I can do all things! So I ask You to fill me with so much strength and motivation that I’ll never stop until I finally reap the harvest of my dreams!

I pray this in Jesus’ name!

MY CONFESSION FOR TODAY

I confess that I will never stop until I see the harvest of my dream. It’s going to take hard work and some time, but I am going to keep plowing and cultivating my ground until I see my crops mature. A day is coming in my future when I will pull up to the table, take out my knife and fork, and dive into the sweet victory for which I’ve worked so hard!

I declare this by faith in Jesus’ name!

QUESTIONS FOR YOU TO CONSIDER

  1. What is the dream crop you’ve been working for and waiting to reap in your life?
  2. Are there changes you need to make in your work style if you are going to achieve the great, super-abundant dreams God has put in your heart? If so, what are the changes you need to make to become a super-achiever?
  3. Can you name five crops you’ve already reaped in life due to your hard work, consistency, and faithfulness?

 

Playing To The Grandstand

Babe Ruth “played to the grandstand” back in the 20’s when he, on a count of 3 balls and 2 strikes pointed to the right field bleachers to signal his intention of hitting the next pitch out of the park. When he slammed that next pitch into right field, the fans went wild!

 

Like “the Babe,” we also “play to the grandstand.” That is, we “play” to the people in our lives whose approval we most cherish, be it parents, colleagues or competitors.

 

Recently, I spent the afternoon with Bob, who only of late has come to the realization that he has spent his entire life “playing to a grandstand” of one: His father. Now Bob’s dad is a cool-headed, tall in the saddle, Charlton Heston type: A paragon of self-control, inner strength, and high achievement. A loner. Aloof. A man’s man. “Rawhide.” A “saddle up, let em ride!” kind of guy. (We won’t discuss his father’s earlier hurts and insecurities that created this masked masterpiece of outward perfection.)

 

From boyhood, Bob’s every move has been calculated to somehow win his dad’s approval. Approval that is parsimoniously meted out in grudging, muted fashion. Approval that is based on his father’s definition of “acceptable” performance.

 

As Christ’s followers, our calling in life lies in exactly the opposite direction: We are to “play to a grandstand” of one: Jesus. Here are two reasons why:

 

The fear of God: “So we make it our goal to please himFor we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade men… ” (2 Corinthians 5:9b-11a) (See Genesis 4:7; 1 Samuel 2:3; Matthew 25:31-46; 1 Peter 4:5)

 

The love of Christ: “For Christs love compels usAnd he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.” (2 Corinthians 5:14a,c, 15) (See Matthew 10:37, 38; 21:15-17; John 21:15-17; Romans 14:10; Ephesians 3:18, 19)

 

If we are to enjoy the freedom that is ours in Christ, we must come to the conclusion that it is only His view of how we conduct our lives that really matters. (Ponder Daniel, chapter 6)

 

Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of ChristServe wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men.” (Galatians 1:10; Ephesians 6:7) (See Matthew 22:16; Colossians 3:23; 1 Thessalonians 2:4; James 4:4)

 

QUESTION: To which grandstand are you playing: Gaining the whimsical approval of others? Or receiving the affirmation of your loving Heavenly Father who longs to say to you, “Well done, good and faithful servantcome and share your masters happiness.” (Matthew 25:21b,c) (See 1 Peter 1:7)
