The Bible verse affirms that Jesus Christ came to save the Jewish clan from damnation.
However, it could be seen nowadays that the Jews pay no heed to their chosen savior and they live exactly like a herd of lost sheep that is rushing towards eternal condemnation.
My dear Christian brothers and sisters,
Open your minds and think for a while. The Eternal Kingdom is nearer than ever. It has been created and being adorned for us. We have an eternal life in the kingdom of God and Jesus Christ explicitly showed us how to enter it.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life
He further said,
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent
Jesus verifies his true station
Dear Christian brothers and sisters! Thinking that Jesus Christ has an exclusive divine pedigree and defining our acts upon this conviction could jeopardize our eternal life. Jesus never claimed him to be God’s son but humbled himself as a servant of God.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, the servant is not greater than his Lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him
I can of mind own self do nothing; as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me
For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me
Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me
When Jesus Christ repeatedly disclaim that he possessed any godliness, Christians choose to adamantly reject his desperate proclamations and turn to walk in the direct opposite path and naively believe that it would lead them to the paradise. As humans, we should sincerely hope that not a single human soul be tormented in the Hell Fire and that all of us should enter the Eternal paradise. We cannot dodge death and when it grips us from our throats at our death beads, we will not be able to do anything to save us. Therefore, it is crucial that we lead our lives with perfect understanding and know where it would eventually lead us. We will attain salvation only if we submit our will to the Almighty God. Following our whims and succumbing to the cravings of our own selves are never going to make us victorious.
Jesus Christ said,
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven
Jesus, while warning that following one’s own desire is not going to profit him, also admits overtly that not him but the Lord who has the ultimate authority to make us enter the Kingdom of God.
Egotism or Eternal victory?
The term “father” generally used in the transactions of the Bible world over has clearly triggered uncertainty over the station of the Jesus Christ. It should be enquired what was the original term utilized for this word and at the same time it is worth ascertaining in what undertone it was used. Since the Bible has not been obviously preserved in its original tongue to verify this controversy, it is time we shed egotism and turned for guidance towards the Last Testament, the Holy Qur’an that endorses many proclamations of the Bible including the miraculous birth of Jesus and chastity of Mary etc. Since, obviously, the present standpoint of the Christian world is crumbling under the weight of skeptic questioning of many scholarly point of views, we invite our Christian brothers and sisters to rethink about their persistent view on this issue with an open and un-opinionated and truth seeking stance.
Jesus Christ said,
And call no man your father upon the earth; for one is your Father, which is in heaven
If we deeply consider the above verse without any bias, it would become very clear that it was meant that no one should be called the Lord except the one in the Heaven for it is impractical not calling anyone father during our life time in this world. If we seize this Biblical command in its facade and in its literary connotation, we cannot but defy a command in the Bible.
In another instance, Jesus Christ taught us how to supplicate to the Lord,
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. The kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen
Jesus says I am only Human
In yet another instance, Jesus Christ explicated his own factual station clearly in this manner,
Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God
Moreover, when Jews asked from him about the Day of Judgement, Jesus said,
But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father
Dear Christians, Please turn your impartial thinking towards this verse. Jesus Christ humbly admits that even he is not privy to such knowledge. This is the very admission of all the prophets sent to this world as mentioned in the Holy Qur’an.
Sons of God
Although Christians do not have rock solid evidence in the Bible for it, they still argue that Jesus is the “physical” son of God. They invariably try to substantiate this claim by proclaiming that the God himself has called Jesus his son in the Bible. However, it could be seen all over the Bible that the God calls various other prophets his sons. Moreover, God calls righteous people, orphans and other upright servants as his sons which removes any distinction from this address.
In the meantime, the Holy Qur’an and the last Messenger of God, Muhammad extensively speak about Jesus and Mary and about the unique and miraculous birth. There is a chapter called “Mariyam” (Mary), who is a Jew, in the Holy Qur’an when there is not even a mention of so much as names of Prophet Muhammad’s parents or his offspring, let alone a chapter.
An Arab Prophet felicitates a Jewish Woman!
The Prophet Muhammad vouchsafes a Jewish woman in time when Jews of Mecca had become a despicable lot of hypocrites who constantly cheated, betrayed Muslims and breeched agreements and conspired covertly and overly to wipe all the Muslims off the face of the earth. Does not this incredible situation have any bearing on the Christian world to consider the truthfulness of Islam and God’s last Prophet?
In fact, Islam is the only religion that sustains and affirms the claim of the miraculous birth of Jesus Christ and this avows the chastity of Mary when all other faiths openly and covertly snicker at the notion.
Holy Qur’an says that Adam and Jesus were created in extraordinary manners,
Verily, the likeness of Jesus in Allah’s sight is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust then said to him to Be
Holy Qur’an 3:59
The Bible too mentions the creations of first man Adam. Since he was created in the Heavens and also since since Adam did not have any physical parents – whereas Jesus had at least one- he is more eligible to be called son of God (May the Almighty Allāh تعالى forgive us for making such a remark even for an argument’s sake) than Jesus.
To be marginally qualified to be talk about the Almighty God, we should have at least a basic comprehension of the concept of God.
God can neither have an inception or origination nor and end and he ought to be incomparable with his creations. Moreover, he could not have manly weaknesses such as hunger, fear, old age, disease, lust, forgetfulness, ignorance, overlooking, regret etc. Also he should be impartial and unbiased. This is what Jesus too said about the God.
Jesus was called “Rabbi” by the Jews of his time. Rabbi is a Hebrew term that means Teacher. If Jesus had claimed a divine heredity, why would people call him a teacher? This is because Jesus was only a human. But he is one of the mightiest prophets of God like Prophet Muhammadh.
Jesus did not seek cherishment for himself from people, thus he attributed all the glory to the deserving Lord,
And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth
Jesus about his second coming
Jesus hinted about his impending second advent of which Islam fervently speaks of. Accordingly, when Jesus comes to this world for the second time he would enlighten the mankind of the ultimate truth.
These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father
He also hinted that he has many other things to be revealed which people at the time could not bear to absorb and indicated that it will be said in due time i.e. in his second advent,
I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now
Jesus about Muhammadh
Jesus Christ mentioned about a Comforter that is to come who will affirm authenticity of Jesus while esteeming him. Accordingly, Prophet Muhammadh strongly instructed to believers to invariably add a supplication when they utter the name of Jesus Christ.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak and he will show you things to come
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me
Everything Jesus Christ said during his mission about a Comforter testifying him ultimately became to pass in the depiction of Prophet Muhammadh.
Prophet Muhammadh during his mission affirmed the second advent of Jesus Christ as Jesus himself hinted.
Jesus Christ too prescribed idol worship that widely prevailed among the Romans as did Prophet Muhammadh to polytheist pagan Arabs, consistent with every Messenger sent forth by the Almighty. None of the prophets claimed divine ancestry from Adam to Jesus to Muhammadh and the Comforter foretold by Jesus Christ is none other than the Prophet Muhammadh who endorsed the prophecies of the Jesus Christ.
Dear brothers and sisters! Islam is not a novel religion, It is the faith of the humankind since the time of Adam, the forefather of the mankind. Let us kneel and prostrate to the one only God and plead for guidance. He is the most merciful and the most beneficial.
Allah says in the Qur’an
O People of the Book! There has come to you Our Messenger, after a break in the series of Messengers, who makes things clear to you lest you say, There has come to us no bearer of glad tidings and no Warner. So a bearer of gold tidings and a Warner has indeed come to you. And Allah has power to do all things
Holy Qur’an 5:19
Accordingly, God sent Prophet Muhammadh after Jesus Christ to fulfill his promise according to His practice. Let us fulfill our part as humans and servants of God and accept him as the only God. He is the God of Jesus, Muhammadh and of you and me as well as of the entire creations. Let us place our trust in Him and secure our victory in the Eternal World.
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth
Say He is Allāh (the) One. The Self-sufficient Master, whom all creatures need. He begets not, nor was He begotten. And There is none co-equal or comparable to Him
Holy Qur’an 112
