“…and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times…” [Joshua 6:4]
(…continues from part six…)
7) Prophet Muhammad hacked a foxy ingeniosity by the use of a perversion of the Christian Bible to give a false façade to Islam. Where did Muhammad get the idea of one God? Deuteronomy 6:4-7 “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: 5) And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. 6) And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: 7) And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.” God’s instruction and warning to Israel are in verses 14-15 “Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you; 15) (For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.”
Jihad must continue to thrive.
God did not send Israel on an embarkation of religious slaughter. Islam fundamentalism is on a sanguineous mission of religious expansion; why should it be dressed in a sanguinary toga? Islam fundamentalism loves religion more than salvation of the soul. ‘Religion’ appears 98 times, while its cognate ‘religious’ is written 6 times in the Qur’an which makes a total of 104 times in an Islamic Book which is about a third in the size of the New Testament alone. The entire Bible – of more than 780,000 words – does not have ‘religion’ and ‘religious’ more than seven times. The Bible is much more concerned about the salvation of the Adamic lost soul.
Jews remain in God’s calendar
The yearly sacrificial ritual of animal slaughter intended to serve as remittance of the sins of Moslems is Bible based. In Genesis 22:1-13, verses 1-3 and 6 read. “And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.
2) And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.
3) And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him. 6) And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.”
Abraham agreed to give Isaac to the LORD, so, God gave His only begotten Son.
God never intended to embark on human sacrifice. He was only testing Abraham and to find the legalism to offer the Second Member of the Godhead in the substitutionary Golgotha crucifixion. The Bible, if you read it well, says that, “And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son” and that wood is the type and shadow of the cross that Jesus would bear to save the world. After the Golgotha experience, there was no need for any sacrifice for the forgiveness of sin – John 3:!6. Islamic annual sacrificial ram, cow and camel – the last (camel) being an Old Testamentary unclean animal – of Muhammad’s Islam proves to be a Janus-faced religion. Muslims will tell you that they believe only the Old Testament of the Bible, fine. But let us read what it makes of Muhammadan cleanness of the camel. Leviticus 11:4 “Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.” Too unclean was the camel even for sacrificial rites. Muhammad loved what Jehovah deemed unclean.
In the verses of 10-13 we have. “And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son. 11) And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I. 12) And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me. 13) And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.” If Abraham was ready to obey the word of God and to sacrifice his only available son, in whom he was well pleased, God was eternally ready to give up His only begotten Son. God is the Jehovah of legality. The ram represents the Lamb of God. Amen.Speaking strictly out of faith is what we read of Abraham’s answer to Isaac in Genesis 22:8 “And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.”
“Thrice in the year shall all your men children appear before the Lord GOD, the God of Israel.”
Why do you think Moslems visit Mecca for the annual pilgrimage? Muhammad definitely got it from the Bible. Luke 2:41-42 “Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover. 42) And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.” This pilgrimage is God’s command to Israel. Exodus 34:23 “Thrice in the year shall all your men children appear before the Lord GOD, the God of Israel.” Do they walk round the Ka’aba seven times? Joshua 6:2-4 “And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour. 3) And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days. 4) And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets.” Does Islam teach alms giving? John 13:29 “For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.”
Muhammad instituted zakat – Hebraic tithing – which is strictly biblical. Leviticus 27:30 “And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD’S: it is holy unto the LORD.” Malachi 3:8-10 “Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. 9) Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. 10) Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”
Muhammad needed to employ the Christian protocollary documentation to sway scripturally untutored people of Arabian stock to his side; he also needed it to show Israel that he knew the God of Abraham. Muhammad believed in associating himself with demons, believing there are repentant, good jinns. These and many more of Islamism is what Muhammad designed to make nonsense of the Bible, Jewry and especially Christianity.
You can be part of the winning Christianity of Jesus Christ. Get born again by saying this sinners’ prayer:
“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”
