Who Is Allah?

Aug 24, 2007 Full story: The Brussels Journal 214,986

“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?”

From the desk of Soeren Kern on Fri, 2007-08-24 11:56 Europeans love to mock the salience of religion in American society. via The Brussels Journal

Susie,

Tell me where and what is Heaven?

I'm putting this question to you since I read your post on the aim of life and going to Heaven on the Messianic thread.

Elijah the prophet also brought a child back to life. Fitting in this life he's a child psychiatrist.
Resurrecting a dead person is done by vitalists.

A vitalist is a yogi who commands a part of or the whole of the vital range of cosmic consciousness.

Actually speaking, the yogi needn't call back the escaped vital power since it's the physico-vital that is responsible for life in the body.

The physico-vital is an inferior current of the manifested vital that infuses matter to animate or enliven it.

A device that generates the correct electro-magnetic frequency can resurrect dead tissues and corpses.

The electromagnetic force is also an aspect of the physico-vital since the vital force is also responsible for the animation of the gross physical forces.

It's been an aim of mine to work closely with a genius-engineer on a vibrometer, an electromagnetic device that can revive dead tissues and corpses when it generates the correct frequencies. Given my yogic experiences (that're spontaneously continuing till now) and my exposure to the physical sciences, I know that it's possible to revive the dead employing the correct frequency/frequencies of the em force.

I'd love to work on the vibrometer with a maverick like Nikola Tesla, who, by the way, was deeply influenced by the mind-matter lectures of Swami Vivekananda that he attended and who he reportedly meet on several occasions when Vivekananda visited the US.

Tesla is reported to have said that if one wishes to know the secrets of the universe then one would have to concentrate on energy, vibration and frequency which determine the nature and function of the universe. Correct. I add consciousness to the list.

Is it a proof or a circular argument? Moses says God talked to him and we must believe it?

Is that what you call as proof?

We are living in the world which God created as mentioned in Genesis, Is that what you call as proof?

Do you not understand what is proof?

This is your own choice, why you blame destiny for it? Who is stopping you from accepting the truth?

Excerpts from the Gospel of Barnabas, Part-103

And the soldiers came before him, bowing down in mockery, saluting him as King of the Jews. And they held out their hands to receive gifts, such as new kings are accustomed to give; and receiving nothing they smote Judas, saying:'Now, how are you crowned, foolish king, if you will not pay your soldiers and servants?'*The chief priests with the scribes and Pharisees, seeing that Judas died not by the scourges, and fearing lest Pilate should set him at liberty, made a gift of money to the governor, who having received it gave Judas to the scribes and Pharisees as guilty to death. Whereupon they condemned two robbers with him to the death of the cross.

So they led him to Mount Calvary, where they used to hang malefactors, and there they crucified him naked;, for the greater ignominy.*Judas truly did nothing else but cry out:'God, why have you forsaken me, seeing the malefactor has escaped and I die unjustly?'*Truly I say that the voice, the face, and the person of Judas were so like to Jesus, that his disciples and believers entirely believed that he was Jesus; wherefore some departed from the doctrine of Jesus, believing that Jesus had been a false prophet, and that by art magic he had done the miracles which he did: for Jesus had said that he should not die till near the end of the world; for that at that time he should be taken away from the world.

But they that stood firm in the doctrine of Jesus were so encompassed with sorrow, seeing him die who was entirely like to Jesus, that they remembered not what Jesus had said. And so in company with the mother of Jesus they went to Mount Calvary, and were not only present at the death of Judas, weeping continually, but by means of Nicodemus and Joseph of Abarimathia; they obtained from the governor the body of Judas to bury it. Whereupon, they took him down from the cross with such weeping as assuredly no one would believe, and buried him in the new sepulcher of Joseph; having wrapped him up in an hundred pounds of precious ointments.

Note: This whole episode shows really what happened and what is the riddle of this Crucifixion. The riddle of Missing Judas Iscariot is explained clearly, which is so evident from the writings of Matthew and Luke. This might be the reason why this Gospel was banned in the first place- MUQ

<quoted text>That's a new one. I've never heard that one before. So Mary and Jesus hated each other. Adam is not the son of Mary or Eve, it's the other way around, Eve was Adams' daughter. It's actually very simple but you're making it very complicated. The righteous are righteous because of their actions not because of their faith and we will all be judged by our actions.

Hmmm...Jews believe in the One God, but they reject Mohammad as a false prophet, so they're going to Islamic hell when they die, right? I mean, tell the truth. Islam is ALL about submitting to Mohammad, isn't it.

You ignored the rest of the post.
Moses testimony includes God inter acting with man on earth.
With out the testimony of Moses we would not have had an actual history of God inter acting with man.

There are thousands and thousands of ancient writings about God prior to Moses, but noon of them revealed a Covenant made by God with man as Moses reveals Gods Covenants to us.

With out God walking and talking to Moses the history of God inter acting with man would not be known.

Moses testimony is proof that God had a living relationship with Moses.
