Video on this subject:

Hebrews 9:22  And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

Hebrews 10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

Jesus' crucifixion, death and resurrection is the most important element in scripture. The promised Son, the Messiah, being the most important element in Old Testament prophecy, and New Testament fulfillment.

1Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

The bible, God's Word, is a 1600 year record of the steady revelation of how God chose to manifest Himself to mankind, as recorded by prophets, and witnessed by legions. The Old Testament records God's revelation to His chosen people the Jews, and the everlasting covenants He has with the seed of Abraham.

The Old and New Testaments detail the revelation of God to the Gentiles, and the New Testament's new covenant path to salvation that was given to them. It would not be a stretch to suggest that the bible is about Jesus Christ, and here's why:

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Gentiles - Muslim or otherwise - that deny that God's Son was sacrificed on the Cross for our sin, may as well close their bibles, because this is what the bible is about, and their only path to salvation. There is no more important element to believe.

Roughly one third of the bible is prophecy. For the Jews was the promised Son:
(asterisks for Tanach version of verses)

Isaiah 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.*

Also in the Old Testament book of:

Psalms 2:7  I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou [art] my Son; this day have I begotten thee.*

The fulfillment of this specific prophecy is mentioned in the New Testament book of:
Acts 13:33 God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.

In the Old Testament we also find Jesus crucifixion prophesied:

Psalms 22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

In OT Psalms we also read:

Psalms 22:18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

Matthew 27:35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

On the "Spirit of Slumber" page we found it would seem that God Himself gave some of the Jews blindness to the Gospel.

Romans 11:8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

From the previous Old Testament verses we see that Jews believed in the Son, but it seems God may have blinded some from recognizing that Jesus is that promised Son.
We know God wouldn't blind them to condemn them:

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Otherwise how could a group be enemies of the Gospel, but still be beloved?

Romans 11:28  As concerning the gospel, [they are] enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, [they are] beloved for the fathers' sakes.

The bible says that nobody can be saved but by the blood of the Lamb, but might Old Testament saints have been saved by Jesus too? To an omniscient God, the sinful nature of mankind and need for atonement for our sin was a foregone conclusion. When was the Lamb slain?

Revelation 13:8  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Was Jesus only suffering done on the Cross?

Hebrews 9:26  For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

It would seem that Jesus suffered under the burden of our sins, long before he was made manifest to us and died on the Cross, to save us from our sins. That would include believing Jews.

It would still seem that perhaps Jesus Second Coming will indeed be a sad day for the Jews, as prophesied in the Old Testament:

Zechariah 12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. 10 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.

ALL anti-Zionists better think twice when reading the above. The primary reason for bigoted doctrine in the church would seem to stem from viewing Jews as a monolithic group when turning to scripture. Would Christians consider themselves to be in the same group as Gentile atheists and idol worshipers? Of course not. There are genealogical Jews that believe Jesus is their Messiah, and those that believe in God and remain blind to the Gospel, and those that have no belief, or natural Jews.

Islam, on the other hand, is a stand-alone anti-Judeo/Christian religion.

Surah 9.30 The Jews call 'Uzair a son of God, and the Christians call Christ the Son of God. ...God's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!

Islam is based on the 23 year record of the unwitnessed "revelations" of a seventh century prophet, manifest in pillage, plunder, sexual enslavement of women taken as spoils of war, and bloody imperialistic conquest.

Islam is antichrist as the related verses expose.

1 John 2:22  Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [(but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also].

Sura 19:88 They say: "(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!" 89 Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!

Islam rejects the Son of God, rejects the Holy Ghost, rejects Jesus bodily resurrection, and even rejects that Jesus died on the Cross in spite of the historical evidence reported by the witnesses.

The saddest thing of all is that Islam rejects that Jesus died on the Cross to save all the world from our sins.

So Islam rejects the new covenant, as it's murderous fruit has always demonstrated.

Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this [is] the first commandment. 31 And the second [is] like, [namely] this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Bloody imperialistic conquest and enslavement is not love. Consider the number of slain by Islam just in the Sudan alone. Obviously NOT because of Zionism.

Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

For Gentiles to reject Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection - His very purpose - is to reject Jesus Christ.

2 John 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

Unlike Muhammad's "revelations", the bible was heavily witnessed.

Mark 15:39 And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.
Luke 23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Hundreds or thousands of witnesses watched Jesus die on the Cross. Islam, in direct opposition to the Word of God:

Surah 4:157 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:-

So all of the first century witnesses, are contradicted five centuries later by an individual. We will explore the possible reason in the next video "STRONG DELUSION".

For those in the grip of Islam, the bible is not a word game for Islamic sophist entertainment. You are betting your ETERNAL LIFE on the 23 year record of unwitnessed "revelation" of a single prophet that arrived on the scene five centuries after the bible was closed, whose life and book directly oppose God's Word.

To our Islamic could-become brethren in Christ Jesus we exhort you:

1 John 1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship [is] with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

Earlier we read from Old Testament prophecy:

Psalms 22:16 ...they pierced my hands and my feet.
Zechariah 12:9 ... and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced...

John 19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

After Jesus was resurrected we find a doubting Thomas:

John 20:24  But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.

A little later we find Jesus says to Thomas:

John 20:27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust [it] into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

Always the opposite, from the founding verses of The Dome of the Rock: O you People of the Book, overstep not bounds in your religion, and of God speak only the truth.  The Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, is only an apostle of God, and his Word which he conveyed unto Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from him.  Believe therefore in God and his apostles, and say not Three. It will be better for you.  God is only one God.  Far be it from His transcendent majesty that he should have a son.

Directly contradicting Jesus resurrected flesh and bone body.

Surah 9:30 The Jews call 'Uzair a son of God, and the Christians call Christ the Son of God. That is a saying from their mouth; (In this) they but imitate what the Unbelievers of old used to say. God's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!

The one of the Quran cannot be the God of the bible because he curses the Christians and Jews for believing in the Son. Were it the same God he would seem both schizophrenic and bi-polar.

1 John 2:22  Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [(but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also].

In Thessalonians we read of the latter times:

2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,  10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.  

We can only wonder as to what "strong delusion" is being suggested that God sends to those who received not the love of the truth, and particularly as to what "a lie" might be.  Islam is an obvious shoe-in, being antichrist, but does that necessarily exclude the apostate church, and Christian posers, who have no time for the truth of God's Holy Word? A church that packed up it's quest for the truth and has become little different than the world?  In the mold of a generation of vipers before them:

Mark 7:13  Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

Repentence is about loving what God loves, and hating what God hates. Including a love of the truth.

But Christians - not Christian posers - can find comfort through the truth of God's Word made flesh:

John 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.


In the figurative language of the book of Revelation we read:

Revelation 19:20  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Revelation 20:10  And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

While written in the figurative language of a prophetic vision, it doesn't seem to spell a picnic. We explored the Islamic Empire beast on it's own page. Perhaps Muslims can see the above verse more easily than a church that is lost in a fog of unsound eschatological tradition. One in every 7 to 10 verses in the Quran regard hell. Muslims get hell talk.

While some will quickly claim that Muhammad never performed a single miracle - unlike the prophets of the bible - which is true, that fails to get a sense of the Greek:

New Testament Greek Definition:
4592 semeion {say-mi'-on}
from a presumed derivative of the base of 4591; TDNT - 7:200,1015; n n
AV - sign 50, miracle 23, wonder 3, token 1; 77
1) a sign, mark, token
1a) that by which a person or a thing is distinguished from
others and is known

Clearly Muhammad distinguished himself from others, and is known unto today, through his book.

The bible further instructs:

Matthew 6:7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen [do]: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.  8  Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

From "Infidel" Ali explains part of salat, "You say Praise be to Allah thirty-three times; God forgive me thirty-three times; Allah is great thirty-three times; and then, if you choose, you may also say Gratitude to Allah."
That's a total of 495 repetitions of just those first three prayers - every day - because Muslims are commanded to perform salat fives times a day.

Good works are the result of repentence and salvation, not the path to it. That would be labor in vain.

Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean [thing], and all our righteousnesses [are] as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Here is THE TRUTH:

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name [was] John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all [men] through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but [was sent] to bear witness of that Light. 9 [That] was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made 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.

Why not come into the light of the truth and the love of the one true God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ?  

1 John 1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship [is] with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
