MUHAMMAD DENIES DIVINE SONSHIP OF JESUS (4)
Jesus healed 18 years illness pointing to His destruction of the ultimate Antichrist
(…continues from part three…)
4) The Entity of Muhammad’s denial, unquestionably, is the only way to heaven. Hebrews 10:20 “By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;” is Pauline revelation of Jesus Christ. The veil that covered the holy of holies is actually a type and shadow of Jesus. Matthew 27:51 “And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;” is the phenomenal occurrence after His substitutionary death on the cross. Before the arrest that led to His sacrificial death: for it was germane that He should be condemned, the Book of Matthew 26:12 reads “For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.” This was in His response to the expensive oil applied to His Person, which some disciples objected to. It was His own death: He prophesied. Mark 14:27-28 27) “And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered. 28) But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.” His resurrection from death is of categorical explicitness in verse 28.
“For this is my blood of the new testament” (Matthew 26:27-28).
Jesus died for a world of sinners who were on their way to hell. To create a legality for the “new and the living way”, it was most appropriate to move from the Old Testamentary method of man’s pietistic approachability. It takes the original Testator to change an inefficient covenant in order not to operate a defective law. Being the Institutor of the Old Testament, Jesus went ahead with the enactment of the New Testamentary order. Matthew 26:27-28 27) “And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; 28) For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” By grace, never by works, we are saved.
Exodus 24:7-8 7) “And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient. 8) And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words.” The fault found with Mosaic covenant was its fugacious stance. The blood of the elements of sacrifice could not blot out man’s sin permanently. Eternality of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit must be duly reflected in the quality of the life of God’s adoption (Romans 8:15, 23; 9:4; Galatians 4:5 & Ephesians 1:5). It must be of grace – unmerited favour –, flowing from the eternal love commitment of the Most High.
I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel (Hebrews 8:8)
Hebrews 8:6-9 6) “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. 7) For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. 8) For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: 9) Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.” The truth here is that without the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ, there would never be the New Testamentary order. Now, let us look at the word ‘mediator’ which is mesites (me-siy’-tees): ‘1. a go-between. 2. (simply) a spokesman. 3. (by implication) a reconciler (intercessor).’ If centuries before the birth of Muhammad the Bible had pointed out the Lord Jesus to the world as the ‘reconciler’ or the ‘intercessor’ between God and man, how could Muhammad claim to be the unbiblical intercessor on the Judgment Day in Sahih al-Bukhari Book 60 Hadith 15? In fact the prophet of Allah said he would go as far as retrieving those who had been languishing in hell fire!
Without equivocation this Islamic revelation is sourced from purgatorial didacticism of Catholicism; which St. Augustine (354–430) distinguished between the purgatorial fire that will burn off stains and the everlasting fire that consumes those who die unrepentant and unreconciled to the church: of which Clement of Alexandria and Origen believed that punishment by God must be to educate and, thereby, contribute to salvation. It had before them been a teaching of Platonism. And much longer than Plato, purgatorial Buddhism is the term ‘Naraka’ meaning “hell”. Islam has belief similarities with Zoroastrianism, Buddhism and sees Christianity through the unscriptural ritualism of the Romish Church.
An inerudite Muhammad quaffed to inebriation the umbilical Popery doctrines of the Catholic Church. What happened to Revelation 20:14-15, “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15) And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”? The next verse is more precise; Matthew 25:46 “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.” There cannot be two intercessors. Muhammad denies the Divinity of Christ only to use subtlety to present himself as the Messiah. Only the Messiah stands between God and man. 1Timothy 2:5-6 “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6) Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” Amen!
Getting born again is a conscious effort on the part of an individual. Get born again. You were born in sin. Say this sinner’s 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!”
