Who Is Allah?

Who Is Allah?

There are 253861 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?”

<quoted text> The Trinity-It explains Isaiah 48:16:
"Draw near to me, hear this: from the beginning I have not spoken in secret, from the time it came to be I have been there.” And now the Lord GOD has sent me, and his Spirit".
The Lord God {1} has sent me{2}, and His Spirit {3}
"Father , Son, and Holy Spirit"
The OT verifies that God is Tri-une.
Shamma, it is the prophet Isaiah that is speaking as the one that God sent there to speak to the Israelites. He is the "me" there, not Jesus Christ.

God sent Isaiah to speak to the people and tell them what would happen. At the time the prophecy was spoken, Israel was living in the Promised Land. Babylon was not yet a dominant world power. Even while foretelling (through Isaiah, the one that God sent) the captivity, God encourages the people by means of Isaiah and his holy spirit that he, the LORD, will act in favor of his people to deliver them.

Here is what it says:
(Isaiah 48, English Standard Version, 16-19)

"Draw near to me, hear this:
from the beginning I have not spoken in secret,
from the time it came to be I have been there.”
And now the Lord God has sent me, and his Spirit.

17 Thus says the Lord,
your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
“I am the Lord your God,
who teaches you to profit,
who leads you in the way you should go.
18 Oh that you had paid attention to my commandments!
Then your peace would have been like a river,
and your righteousness like the waves of the sea;
19 your offspring would have been like the sand,
and your descendants like its grains;
their name would never be cut off
or destroyed from before me.”

Yes, this was spoken of by Isaiah, the prophet, and he is the one that God empowered by means of his spirit to speak to the nation.

Thank you, NQ for educating Shamma.

I really don't know what brand of Christianity is he pedalling here?

Everything is studied under the scrutiny of the Scripture of a religion. Here, Shamma studies the Scripture under the light, shade and scrutiny of man-made doctrines.

I am calling the fool, who saw three or a trinity in that verse, a Liar.
I see four in there. It was written by Isaiah about Jacob. So, the Church should accept Isaiah and Jacob as the first two Sons of your God before your God begat the third, I mean Jesus.
I Am not willing to accept silly, idiotic and distorted information.
Now, pick your stones and get ready for this biblical English:
Before Jesus was born, I Am also!
Now you see me, now you don't.
You are a clown.
There is only one way to come to God, and that is thru Jesus Christ, Gods Son.

In Genesis 48:15,16 we read that when Jacob invoked God's blessing upon Joseph's two sons he prayed, "The God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God who hath fed me all my life long unto this day, the angel who hath redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads...." In this passage three divine personalities are called upon to bless Joseph's sons: the God before whom Abraham and Isaac walked; the God who fed Jacob through his lifetime and the angel who redeemed him from all evil. That each is a divine personality, coequal and coeternal with the others, is clear from the fact that no Hebrew would have placed created beings upon a level with the Eternal God, as is done here.

In Isaiah 48:1-16 we see Isaiah the prophet impersonating the Messiah and speaking for Him. Verse 13 reveals Him as the Creator of the Universe. In vs. 16b He says, "And now the Lord Jehovah hath sent me, and his Spirit." In this impersonation the Messiah is saying that the Lord Jehovah has sent Him and also has sent His Spirit (the Holy Spirit). According to this verse there are three divine personalities.

In Isaiah 63:8-10 we see God the Father mentioned in vs. 8 as the Saviour of Israel; God the Son who is called "the angel of his presence" (vs. 9) and the Holy Spirit (vs. 10).

In the New Testament we find the Lord Jesus also teaching the doctrine of the three divine personalities; of their constituting a unity in the literal sense of the term.

“Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”(Matthew 28:19,20)

Throw away your JW Bible, it is worthless.

You are extremely simple in thought, this is evident, you consistently regurgitate propagated filth which serves no other purpose but to persecute innocent people on the premise of what a minority of individuals have engaged in...
These individuals who are criminals have served the purpose to justify unforgivable acts of invasion, persecution and prejudice towards other innocent people, a campaign which you are also engaging in.
