Who Is Allah?

There are 256620 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?”

Wrong!
Jesus fulfilled all the prophecy in the OT, and the rest will be fulfilled at His second coming.

I understand that, Seeker, but it has nothing to do with the Messiah. It suggests as if they were never Torah-observant.
Under the new covenant as suggested in Jeremiah, to which Christians refer to heavily, I ahev this to ask:
Are the Christians really Torah-Observant, if Jeremiah's prophesy were true? Why should they even quote it?
The New Covenant was made with the House of Judah.
Jesus came for the lost sheep of the Jews, and brought them in by the Apostles.
Paul was commissioned by Jesus to preach to the Gentiles.
Peter, John and the other Apostles preached in lands where the lost sheep of the Jews were scattered.
That is why there is not much written in the Gospels about where the Apostles went.

rabbee: if G-D was not aware of it, then why did G-D give to me such a harsh judgment of this whole world? the message i most certainly, wanted to try to avoid giving. sorry G-D did not exempt, any of you as being true, righteous, or holy. this judgment from G-D, is far more horrible and frightening than you could imagine. and i am trying to be, a lot nicer about it than G-D.

There are some 200 names and titles of Christ found in the Bible. Following are some of the more prominent ones, organized in three sections relating to names that reflect the nature of Christ, His position in the tri-unity of God, and His work on earth on our behalf.

The Nature of Christ
Chief Cornerstone:(Ephesians 2:20)– Jesus is the cornerstone of the building which is His church. He cements together Jew and Gentile, male and female—all saints from all ages and places into one structure built on faith in Him which is shared by all.

Firstborn over all creation:(Colossians 1:15)– Not the first thing God created, as some incorrectly claim, because verse 16 says all things were created through and for Christ. Rather, the meaning is that Christ occupies the rank and pre-eminence of the first-born over all things, that He sustains the most exalted rank in the universe; He is pre-eminent above all others; He is at the head of all things.

Head of the Church:(Ephesians 1:22; 4:15; 5:23)– Jesus Christ, not a king or a pope, is the only supreme, sovereign ruler of the Church—those for whom He died and who have placed their faith in Him alone for salvation.

Holy One:(Acts 3:14; Psalm 16:10)– Christ is holy, both in his divine and human nature, and the fountain of holiness to His people. By His death, we are made holy and pure before God.

Judge:(Acts 10:42; 2 Timothy 4:8)– The Lord Jesus was appointed by God to judge the world and to dispense the rewards of eternity.

King of kings and Lord of lords:(1 Timothy 6:15; Revelation 19:16)– Jesus has dominion over all authority on the earth, over all kings and rulers, and none can prevent Him from accomplishing His purposes. He directs them as He pleases.

Light of the World:(John 8:12)– Jesus came into a world darkened by sin and shed the light of life and truth through His work and His words. Those who trust in Him have their eyes opened by Him and walk in the light.

Prince of peace:(Isaiah 9:6)– Jesus came not to bring peace to the world as in the absence of war, but peace between God and man who were separated by sin. He died to reconcile sinners to a holy God.

Son of God:(Luke 1:35; John 1:49)– Jesus is the “only begotten of the Father”(John 1:14). Used 42 times in the New Testament,“Son of God” affirms the deity of Christ.

Son of man:(John 5:27)– Used as a contrast to “Son of God” this phrase affirms the humanity of Christ which exists alongside His divinity.

Word:(John 1:1; 1 John 5:7-8)– The Word is the second Person of the triune God, who said it and it was done, who spoke all things out of nothing in the first creation, who was in the beginning with God the Father, and was God, and by whom all things were created.

Word of God:(Revelation 19:12-13)– This is the name given to Christ that is unknown to all but Himself. It denotes the mystery of His divine person.

Word of Life:(1 John 1:1)– Jesus not only spoke words that lead to eternal life, but according to this verse He is the very words of life, referring to the eternal life of joy and fulfillment which He provides.

His position in the trinity
Alpha and Omega:(Revelation 1:8; 22:13)– Jesus declared Himself to be the beginning and end of all things, a reference to no one but the true God. This statement of eternality could apply only to God.

Emmanuel:(Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:23)– Literally “God with us.” Both Isaiah and Matthew affirm that the Christ who would be born in Bethlehem would be God Himself who came to earth in the form of a man to live among His people.

I Am:(John 8:58, with Exodus 3:14)– When Jesus ascribed to Himself this title, the Jews tried to stone Him for blasphemy. They understood that He was declaring Himself to be the eternal God, the unchanging Jehovah of the Old Testament.

There are some 200 names and titles of Christ found in the Bible. Following are some of the more prominent ones, organized in three sections relating to names that reflect the nature of Christ, His position in the tri-unity of God, and His work on earth on our behalf.

Lord of All:(Acts 10:36)– Jesus is the sovereign ruler over the whole world and all things in it, of all the nations of the world, and particularly of the people of God's choosing, Gentiles as well as Jews.

True God:(1 John 5:20)– This is a direct assertion that Jesus, being the true God, is not only divine, but is the Divine. Since the Bible teaches there is only one God, this can only be describing His nature as part of the triune God.

His Work on earth
Author and Perfecter of our Faith:(Hebrews 12:2)– Salvation is accomplished through the faith that is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8-9) and Jesus is the founder of our faith and the finisher of it as well. From first to last, He is the source and sustainer of the faith that saves us.

Bread of Life:(John 6:35; 6:48)– Just as bread sustains life in the physical sense, Jesus is the Bread that gives and sustains eternal life. God provided manna in the wilderness to feed His people and He provided Jesus to give us eternal life through His body, broken for us.

Bridegroom:(Matthew 9:15)– The picture of Christ as the Bridegroom and the Church as His Bride reveals the special relationship we have with Him. We are bound to each other in a covenant of grace that cannot be broken.

Deliverer:(Romans 11:26)– Just as the Israelites needed God to deliver them from bondage to Egypt, so Christ is our Deliverer from the bondage of sin.

Good Shepherd:(John 10:11,14)– In Bible times, a good shepherd was willing to risk his own life to protect his sheep from predators. Jesus laid down His life for His sheep, and He cares for and nurtures and feeds us.

High Priest:(Hebrews 2:17)– The Jewish high priest entered the Temple once a year to make atonement for the sins of the people. The Lord Jesus performed that function for His people once for all at the cross.

Lamb of God:(John 1:29)– God’s Law called for the sacrifice of a spotless, unblemished Lamb as an atonement for sin. Jesus became that Lamb led meekly to the slaughter, showing His patience in His sufferings and His readiness to die for His own.

Mediator:(1 Timothy 2:5)– A mediator is one who goes between two parties to reconcile them. Christ is the one and only Mediator who reconciles men and God. Praying to Mary or the saints is idolatry because it bypasses this most important role of Christ and ascribes the role of Mediator to another.

Rock:(1 Corinthians 10:4)– As life-giving water flowed from the rock Moses struck in the wilderness, Jesus is the Rock from which flow the living waters of eternal life. He is the Rock upon whom we build our spiritual houses, so that no storm can shake them.

Resurrection and Life:(John 11:25)– Embodied within Jesus is the means to resurrect sinners to eternal life, just as He was resurrected from the grave. Our sin is buried with Him and we are resurrected to walk in newness of life.

Savior:(Matthew 1:21; Luke 2:11)– He saves His people by dying to redeem them, by giving the Holy Spirit to renew them by His power, by enabling them to overcome their spiritual enemies, by sustaining them in trials and in death, and by raising them up at the last day.

True Vine:(John 15:1)– The True Vine supplies all that the branches (believers) need to produce the fruit of the Spirit— the living water of salvation and nourishment from the Word.

Way, Truth, Life:(John 14:6)– Jesus is the only path to God, the only Truth in a world of lies, and the only true source of eternal life. He embodies all three in both a temporal and an eternal sense.

Why Did Jesus Come into the World?

Imagine the creator of this vast universe who has all knowledge, all power coming to the ones he created to make himself known to them. Well that’s exactly what took place almost 2,000 years ago. To communicate with us in the best way possible,“God “became flesh,” He became one of the creatures he made, man.

Why did God do this? Because our greatest need is an eternal one. It’s not about what we can gain in this life, in profits or pleasure or making a lasting imprint on this earth. None of these will satisfy our soul. Ours is a spiritual need, one that we were created for, to have fellowship with God and do His will.

Jesus came to earth because he loves us; He came to deliver truth in a world of false beliefs. But the main reason He came to earth was to be the final sacrifice for our sins. The simple reason is because we are not good, some may think they are, but none are as good as they think when compared to God’s standard--Jesus Christ.

His love prompted him to become man to accomplish what only He could, to rescue mankind. Because we are sinful, in a spiritually wrecked condition we are in need of redemption but could not redeem ourselves. Nothing short than the eternal creator could accomplish this; no man with sin could qualify to redeem us with his life. God would come to earth as man to cleanse the affect of the disease of sin inherited to all humanity. That is what is so amazing about the Bibles story of Jesus. The creator came to earth; God who is perfect, righteous and holy lived among his creatures that are unholy, unrighteous, even those who were enemies of him.

After man was made and given dominion over the earth, Satan, an angelic creature smarter and more powerful came to Eve in the garden to deceive her. Through tempting Eve to disobey God’s command, it resulted in Adam also disobeying God and brought sin to earth. When Adam sinned, it confirmed him and all of us in a change of nature, unholiness. Sin entered into mans nature and spread to the offspring of all people. Because God is holy and righteous he had to judge them for their disobedience. Because God is also holy and righteous and loving He had to do something to reverse the separation of sin that took place to his creatures.

“But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe”(Galatians 3:22).

John 6:38:“For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.” As a servant, he, the Son came to do the will of the Father. 1 John 4:14:“That the Father sent the Son as the Savior of the world.” God did not send an angel nor a good man, the savior is God who became man. The Bible says,“the grace of God has appeared to all men.” Christ came for all. Christianity is for everyone but not everyone will respond; only those who acknowledge they are sinful. For one to know this they only have to look at God’s standard, his commands and his law to find they have not obeyed them perfectly and have fallen short of keeping them.

Why Did Jesus Come into the World?

Heb 10:7-10 “Then I said,‘Behold, I have come--in the volume of the book it is written of Me--to do Your will, O God.’“ Previously saying,“Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them”(which are offered according to the law), then He said,“Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.” He takes away the first that He may establish the second. By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” The sacrifices show that sin tore apart the perfect harmony man once had with God and man.

Notice that Jesus says the whole of the Old Testament is concentrated on him. God began the sacrificial system with Adam but it was not to continue, it was given temporarily to point to the Messiah,(until he came Gal.3) until the final covenant would be established. These sacrifices were given to show how sinful man is and to cover our sins until the last one took place. He even gave more laws to make it more apparent to man that we are sinful, guilty of disobedience, falling short of keeping his requirements.(Galatians 3:19;

John 8:12 Jesus spoke,“I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” John 12:46:“I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.” Darkness is representative of sin and judgment. Sin darkens our understanding and ruins our living. That we need one that can show us the way to live, as a light in darkness so we will not stumble. We all know what light is we depend on it today when we are in the dark so we will not stumble. This is why the gospel is associated with light because it shows us our sin and presents the savior. 2 Cor. 4:3:“But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.” Most may not want to think of themselves as in darkness but this is how God looks at them without the truth of knowing Christ.

I John 1:5-6:“This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.”

The light is His Word and His way, Jesus said,“I am the Way the truth and the life” to come to the Father. To have this life He offers you must accept him as the way and embrace the truth.

John the apostle writes that Jesus “was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.”(John 1:9-10)

The people responded in John 6:42:“Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says,‘I have come down from heaven’?

Those Jesus lived among were very aware of his claim of not originating from earth though not all believed him. They could not understand it. But they knew he was different from other men.

Jesus explained his purpose for becoming man Luke 19:10:“for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” God came to those who had the most knowledge of him first, those he was working through for centuries, those he entrusted his words to. His intent was to explain himself as being fulfillment of all the rituals and laws He gave them.

Matthew 18:11-12 “For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost.” What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek the one that is straying?”

It's obvious. You have nothing better to do. If you did, and you were who you claimed you really are, you would be talking in a lot more important places than this.

Why Did Jesus Come into the World?

God uses human shepherds to explain how the chief shepherd would act. This is God’s heart to not lose a single one that is in the fold. He will go far to retrieve the one who leaves. This was his mission, to come to earth and save us. It was for everyone, because everyone is lost. No one is born not lost. This is what sin does, it has the nature of darkness and we become comfortable living in a fallen world. But no one has to live in the world or leave this world the same way.

He did not come as their ruler but as a man who served them so they could understand better how to relate to God. Matthew 20:28 “just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” The greatest service one can do is to give their life for another; Jesus gave his life for all, not just a few. Many a soldier has given his life on the battlefield to save his fellow soldier which is the greatest human sacrifice. Jesus gave it for those who were enemies. We were all enemies; even those who are Christian a should not forget this was once their state as well.

Luke 9:56:“For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives but to save them.” With simple message encapsulated in love, God the Father sent the Son from heaven to earth to become a man to demonstrate what life is like living in obedience to their creator. Jesus was the perfect example of man having fellowship with his creator, to have joy and live life in its fullest; in purity. It was the way God intended it to be from Adam onward. As we allow Christ to Lord over our lives we are offered peace through trials, harmonious living, and a clean conscience. One day we will have beyond what words can describe, beyond our dreams and imaginations (1 Corinthians 2:9).

God’s message to us through His Only begotten Son John 3:16-17:“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” John continues in v.19 “And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”

Evil has been with us since Eve and Adam disobeyed God and ate the fruit from the forbidden tree. It springs from our fallen nature and mankind’s history tells the story and bears witness to this evil that is part of mans living. We were made to be peaceful in the likeness of our creator. In a sinful condition we were born “to be wild,” in the new spiritual birth we were born to have God’s nature of righteousness (I John 2:29).

John 10:10:“I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” This means a changed life from sin to righteousness, the fruit of the Spirit instead of the works of the flesh. These are “love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control”(Gal 5:22-23) Ephesians 5:9:(goodness, righteousness, and truth).

Speaking to Pilate just prior to his crucifixion (John 18:37-38) Pilate therefore said to Him,“Are You a king then?”“You say rightly that I am a king.“For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” Pilate said to Him,“What is truth?”

Many people do not understand when they reject what Jesus says and refuse His way they are siding with Pilate and admitting they do not understand nor want to know truth. Some people believe they already have the truth without Jesus. But Jesus said He is the truth, the truth is found in a person and that person is God’s Son who spoke only truth. No one is born in this world with the truth, one must be reborn spiritually to know this truth (John.3:3-6).

Why Did Jesus Come into the World?

Jesus came to earth because of God's love for all of us; no matter what religion, country or culture we were born into He wants fellowship with us. He wants us to experience the mercy and forgiveness that is needed to make us whole.

1 Timothy 1:15:“This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.” Paul did not look at himself as holy than any other, but put himself as lower, calling himself the greater of sinners. Understanding he needed to be forgiven just like anyone else. We are all sinners that need the salvation that Jesus paid for.

“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance”(2 Peter 3:9) God’s love holds him back from judgment, he is merciful and does not want to see any perish so He continues to allow his message of forgiveness and reconciliation to him be proclaimed by those who know him. But there is a day coming when this message will not be allowed the freedom it now enjoys.

Many men have tried to find the right way when Jesus said He is the way. They embraced all that was offered but only those who take the one way will find life.

Following rules and regulations of religion is not good news, Jesus said to follow him and explained how.

Christianity is an internal religion because of the indwelling of the Spirit of God in the believer, the spirit of life is given and begins to transform us from the inside. No other religion or way can offer you this because only Christianity deals with the sinfulness of man, which is our spiritual nature.

No other religion can offer this nor can it deliver it because it is the life of God himself.

Only Christianity is based on faith, hope and love. We have Faith to live in a fallen world where things do not often go the way we would like. Yet we can trust God who is watching over us and personally cares for our life. We have Hope for our life today no matter what may happen and hope for our future. Hope that the life to come is going to be more fulfilling and than anything we experienced on earth. We can Love God who gave the ultimate sacrifice in laying down the life of his human body to save us from the penalty of our sins. Now we are able to love Him who we once hated. Because of this new life, love is indwelled in us that we are also able to love people in a greater manner, even those we may not know.
