Who Is Allah?

Who Is Allah?

There are 256604 comments on the The Brussels Journal story from Aug 24, 2007, titled Who Is Allah?. In it, The Brussels Journal reports that:

“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

I believe Jesus was killed and resurrected. I don't celebrate "Easter" for several reasons.

But as far as that goes, do you believe he was really resurrected? In other words, do you believe he really died, or only his flesh was killed, but his spirit/soul was alive, well, and working somewhere?

According to Bereishit Hashem sent out Adam and his mate from Eden garden and didn't allow them to eat the fruit from the tree of life. That means Adam was not immortal. He and his mate died. The two verses you brought don't speak about any second or third coming. So once they died they won't appear again.

and so do you really expect TheG-D, of Only This One Story to change any of this? because if G-D ever changed this, then G-D would be the liar instead of all of you.

and by the way, Bereesheet is 12 books, of which Bereesheees is the first one. TheLittle Book - that acoounts for all seven days. may not be such a little book, after all.

and you fail to comprehend, i am Who G-D came and called TheHisSon adam. so i have spoken to G-D, in PERSON. and this is confirmable in TheWritten Torah Scroll. that this is always going to happen, here in ThisStory from G-D just again.

there is nothing that has happened, is happening, or shall happen. that has not, is not, or is yet to happen, that is not all happening in TheOnly Story from G-D all being given again. including all the pestilence, plague and famine, that is resulting in inappropriate hell and death. because all of you, are all being inappropriate to G-D, here in TheStory again.

and the tree of life for adam and his mate, is the alleged tree of death for Adam. aka, the crucifix. but we do not know, if this death of Adam shall always happen for a world true to G-D in GanEden.

Jesus is the Divine Son of God.

When Jesus died on the cross, it was not his divine nature as God that died. It was the human nature that died. Dying is a biological function that was reserved only for the human nature of Christ when he died on the cross.

Jesus' Two Natures: God and Man
Jesus is the most important person who has ever lived since he is the savior, God in human flesh. He is not half God and half man. He is fully divine and fully man. In other words, Jesus has two distinct natures: divine and human. Jesus is the Word who was God and was with God and was made flesh,(John 1:1,14). This means that in the single person of Jesus is both a human and divine nature, God and man. The divine nature was not changed when the Word became flesh (John 1:1,14). Instead, the Word was joined with humanity (Col. 2:9). Jesus' divine nature was not altered. Also, Jesus is not merely a man who "had God within Him" nor is he a man who "manifested the God principle." He is God in flesh, second person of the Trinity. "The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word," (Heb. 1:3). Jesus' two natures are not "mixed together," (Eutychianism) nor are they combined into a new God-man nature (Monophysitism). They are separate yet act as a unit in the one person of Jesus. This is called the Hypostatic Union.

The Communicatio Idiomatum

A doctrine that is related to the Hypostatic Union is the communicatio idiomatum (Latin for "communication of properties"). It is the teaching that the attributes of both the divine and human natures are ascribed to the one person of Jesus. This means that the man Jesus could lay claim to the glory He had with the Father before the world was made (John 17:5), claim that He descended from heaven,(John 3:13), and also claim omnipresence,(Matt. 28:20). All of these are divine qualities that are laid claim to by Jesus; therefore, the attributes of the divine properties were claimed by the person of Jesus.

One of the most common errors that non-Christian cults make is not understanding the two natures of Christ. For example, the Jehovah's Witnesses focus on Jesus' humanity and ignore His divinity. They repeatedly quote verses dealing with Jesus as a man and try and set them against scripture showing that Jesus is also divine. On the other hand, the Christian Scientists do the reverse. They focus on the scriptures showing Jesus' divinity to the extent of denying His true humanity.

For a proper understanding of Jesus and, therefore, all other doctrines that relate to Him, His two natures must be properly understood and defined. Jesus is one person with two natures. This is why He would grow in wisdom and stature (Luke 2:52) yet know all things (John 21:17). He is the Divine Word that became flesh (John 1:1,14).

The Bible is about Jesus (John 5:39). The prophets prophesied about Him (Acts 10:43). The Father bore witness of Him (John 5:37; 8:18). The Holy Spirit bore witness of Him (John 15:26). The works Jesus did bore witness of Him (John 5:36; 10:25). The multitudes bore witness of Him (John 12:17). And, Jesus bore witness of Himself (John 14:6; 18:6).

He is our advocate with the Father (1 John 2:1). He is our Savior (Titus 2:13). He is our Lord (Rom. 10:9-10). He is Jesus.

The extant manuscripts of the writings of the 1st century Romano-Jewish historian Flavius Josephus include references to Jesus and the origins of Christianity.[1][2] Josephus' Antiquities of the Jews, written around 93–94 AD, includes two references to Jesus in Books 18 and 20 and a reference to John the Baptist in Book 18.[1][3]
Modern scholarship has almost universally acknowledged the authenticity of the reference in Book 20, Chapter 9, 1 of the Antiquities to "the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, whose name was James" [4] and considers it as having the highest level of authenticity among the references of Josephus to Christianity.[5][1][2][6][7][8 ] Almost all modern scholars consider the reference in Book 18, Chapter 5, 2 of the Antiquities to the imprisonment and death of John the Baptist to also be authentic.[9][10][11]

The Bible is much easier to understand than the unsupportable hypostasis, and the trinity doctrine, neither of which can be clearly explained without resorting to philosophical and mystical explanation techniques, because they're just not there in the Bible or reality. Jesus was a man born to a woman, he was not God a trinity in the flesh. When he died, he fully died, not the man-part of him. He gave up his life, not the man-part of him, but fully his life. God does not do that. Jesus died. And when he was resurrected, as were others, he came back to life. The prophets Elijah and Elisha also resurrected the dead.

Yes, bmz was perfectly right when he spoke about the inexplicable and diversionary trinity doctrine, which takes away from the glory of God, making him into a contrived creature of men.

GHOULS:

Ghouls are a class of extremely dangerous beings of the lower vital planes. They can assume grotesque forms on their planes of origin and manifest in the physical in graveyards or cremation grounds or hospital morgues through foul smell and can invisibly attach themselves to the force fields of a vulnerable human being or an animal or can possess those who've serious personality defects.

Their aim is to capture vital power which they do by absorbing the life-forces from the human beings or animals they influence.

They can however be befriended if one can establish a direct force connection with them. But, it's always at a great risk to life and limb.

Most of our scientists/mathematicians, actors, central bankers, priests, hippies and politicians are possessed by ghouls and derive insights into the laws of matter or into subjects of their specialization when the being manifests in the mind-in-vital.

Other dangerous classes of vital beings possess ordinary citizens.

Ghouls are controlled by higher adverse vital entities.

I can type pages on my direct encounters with such beings and most of these were difficult and dangerous.

No more on this deadly subject......

JESUS - AN INFERIOR AVATAR:

Jesus could neither attain to physical immortality nor was he invincible nor did he have any clue about the overmental, supramental and still subtler planes of existence.

Muhammad (and his Allah), too, was the same kind of inferior prophet like Jesus.

Krishna was a being of the lower overmind.

The supramental and the planes that exceed the supramental have been accessed in the whole of human history by just a handful of the advanced guard of great yogis like the rishee (seer) Bharadwaaj and his spiritually competent wife, Lopamudra, Sri Aurobindo and his Jewish spiritual collaborator, the Mother, and a few others.

Bringing down the supramental power into the lower planes has been the exclusive action of Aurobindo-Mother with the arduous process still underway as the inertia of matter have made it a most difficult process.

It's easier to realize/experience the supermind on its own native heights which are the 13th to the 16th cosmic planes than to experience it in the gross physical....

GRADES OF INVINCIBILITY:

1) A non-supramentalized body can be pierced by weapons and it bleeds and it heals after surgery and medication or by the application of a strong vital force on the wound.

2) A fully supramentalized body would give way to the weapon or projectile aimed at it with the flesh molecules intuitively forming an aperture so that the blade or bullet passes through and the gap would get sealed spontaneously after the attack passes without any tear or bleeding. Even if a bolt of lightning strikes the supramentalized body it would either get deflected or it would absorb the electrical discharge and neutralize it. Actually speaking, even a yogi with mastery over the cosmic vital power - a power far inferior to the supramental - can deflect a bolt of lightning but his body would be destroyed if struck by it.

GRADATIONS OF AVATARHOOD:

1) Rama was the Personification or the Avatar of the Cosmic Higher Mind Consciousness. Rama carried arms and fought and killed Ravana, the incarnation of Evil. This is an inferior type of action by an Avatar as it raises several difficulties and questions about the potency of the power he possessed but it was well-suited to the inferior grade of cosmic consciousness manifested in the Avatar, Rama.

2) Sri Krishna says to his disciple, Arjuna, in the Bhagvad Gita:

"I am the Time-Consciousness, the Destroyer of the worlds, here arisen huge-statured for the destruction of the worlds. Even without thee, Arjuna, all these warriors, who are ranked in the opposing armies, shall not remain."

11:32

Krishna, being an Avatar of a higher order, of the Cosmic Overmind, fought and won the Mahabharata War through his chief disciple Arjuna without carrying arms. But, he was on the battlefield, goading and guiding every movement personally.

This type of action is also inferior though superior to the previous type.

3) The Supramental Avatar had a still higher Consciousness, Force and Knowledge as seen in Anukul Chandra Thakur who acted through his chosen instrument Sri Aurobindo. The Supramental Avatar could act on the entire world while sitting calmly at a place. The Supramental Avatar could send the Higher Force to the battlefield to manipulate results without Himself going to the war fronts as seen during the last century. But, then, during the last century, the Supramental Power had not yet realized itself in the Cosmic Vital and in the Earth Nature and so mass killings took place as seen during the world wars and besides the major Asura Forces of the Cosmic Vital Plane could not/have not been converted or dissolved.

4) The next stage would logically be the unveiling of the Cosmic Bliss Avatar, a far superior incarnation than the supramental avatar or any previous avatar.....it may not occur in our lifetime.

How can you say what you are saying with a straight face knowing what you are saying is a falsehood?

The ultimate issue as always is, does the biblical evidence support the doctrine of the Trinity or tri-personality of God? If biblical evidence supports it, we can know it is true.
And the Biblical evidence does supports that God is Tru-ine.

You and BMZ are in denial that the Scriptures support that God is a Trinity.
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

You and BMZ have a right to reject the Scripture truth that supports
that God is a Trinity, but you don't have the right to say that there is no evidence in the scriptures that support God as being a Trinity.

For your statements are falsehoods.
And you have labeled your selves as being the liars on this thread.
