Once again the symbols { } are added to show clarity of understanding

The Russians are coming and with that comes some wars and the Arab world better look out! Well, look at Chapter 11 in Daniel (pbh) which was written several hundreds of years before the birth of Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) and see for yourself. The plan is not complex and it is easy enough to see. As can be seen on the world’s scene today, there is some kind of competition between the USA and Russia for dominance. This dominance can be called a ‘worldly’ type of regional influence.

During the Cold War, the competition between the so-called Super Powers occurred mainly between Russia (the USSR countries) and America standing with NATO- aligned European countries. The USSR used a lot of strong armed tactics which eventually backfired as a ploy to be attractive to worldly, freedom loving citizens and for good reason. It was stifling and very oppressive and something which doesn’t really appeal to a civilized person.

So one learns from previous mistakes and tries to become more appealing or at least gives the cloak of civility a shot in order to sway the masses. In that way a ‘creeping type of Communism’ under a new name and with a new dimension can hope to be successful. So what is happening NOW?

America is in a period of decay and Russia smells that the old man on the mountain (America) needs to be replaced. How can America be replaced without a nuclear war? The answer is simple! With patience and so-called lucky happenstance, Russia will be put in a great position of strength without too much trouble and that demigod Putin, who like all demigods, believes that his life will continue to exist in this world without a future end. So what are the tactics that need to be employed to accomplish this act of derring-do?

Due to the fact of ‘globalization’, it is extremely difficult for one advanced country to go into overdrive and start wars in order to conquer nations or grab large territories without being strongly admonished and condemned by the world of politics thus causing economic suffering. This applies only at times considered ‘normal’ without world-wide destructive influences. However, when the world is busy shaking and some countries are too busy trying to stay on top of things that are causing some chaos, then one can see the ‘bullies’ trying to get away with certain things. Since these ‘shakings’ haven’t occurred yet, the ‘new’ Russia is going about its business in a slow, calculated way.

First, one has to close the gates slowly on the Arabs from several directions if that can be managed. The key word here is slowly so as not to upset the proverbial apple cart too soon. To do this one has to get close to the seat of power in the Middle East which in this case is Saudi Arabia.

With Saudi Arabia in a strong position and NATO having a say in things, Russia has too many problems to overcome. However, not for long and with PATIENCE the ‘fly’ (Middle Eastern countries) will come to the spider to be a neat wrapped up present or that is their hope.

First, what needs to be done is to probe the ‘giant’s (the WEST’s) weaknesses’. Next, be friends and be a patient, understanding and supportive country to Turkey which after the phony ideals put out by Europe might give Turkey a notion to NOT be so NATO friendly. So a rift would now be created on one of the Arab flanks.

Secondly, be chummy with Iran and establish military cooperation with that country. Get to know IRANIAN ASPERATIONS as well as their hatred towards Saudi Arabia and play the understanding and helpful card as if you really think that these leaders and their philosophy is anything but a fairytale. Everybody seems to like their egos stroked so get cozy with Iran. In reality, both countries need each other for their nefarious outlook for future developments.

For example, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei believes that he actually speaks for ‘all Muslims’ and is the leader of the Muslim Ummah. However, his thinking is that due to the corrupted beliefs of the other Muslim believers, he, together with his twisted fellows, have this Messianic ‘VISSION’ which is discussed in Daniel (pbh) Chapter 11. Their vision is that their type of Mahdi will soon ‘reappear’ in the world and lead a type of world-wide revolution to bring the whole world under his sway – the sway of the I2vers of Iran with their Mahdi being in charge.

It is important to recognize this so as to see how Russia can now effectively ‘play’ with the Iranians and how the Iranians are playing with Russia. In fact, Russia has ‘humbly’ asked that country for the use of one of their air bases. And with any Iranian setbacks, for they can’t seem to gain traction with their ‘hated’ enemy (Saudi Arabia still holding power), they feel that there should be no problem in USING Russia in a squeeze power play as potential adversaries against Saudi Arabia.

After all, the Russians can be used because their Iranian ‘mythical’ Mahdi will easily deal with the Russians at the end just as easy as it is to throw out the trash. So, the end result, according to the Iranians is no harm and no foul and whatever occurs, they plan to be victorious in the end. However in truth, their miscalculations concerning the real Mahdi will cause a great danger to the Middle East.

Russia already is in the Middle East by way of Syria and Lebanon. And getting a Shi’a stamp of approval lets them be understanding ‘fellows’ to the real power in Lebanon, the Hezbollah terrorist group. Now one can take a good look at the map and see that the ‘noose’ which is being weaved by Russia is far from complete but these Russian hardliners have been sniffing success recently and want very much to be the world’s dominant power. The noose is closing ever so slowly but it is closing nonetheless!

Thawdan narrated “ALLA’s Messenger (pbh) said; “Definitely, there will come a time when the nations will gather against you, just as people gather around a feast.” A man said, “Will it be because we are few at that time, O ALLAH’s Messenger?” He responded, “No, you will be numerous in those times, but you will be as useless as the scum of the sea, and ALLAH will remove the fear that your enemies used to possess concerning you from their chests and HE will place al-Wahn in your hearts”. It was said, “What is al-Wahn?” The Prophet (pbh) responded, “Love of life, and hatred of death.”      (Ahmad, Abu Dawood)

The second part of this equation is looking at America and how it looks like a ‘drunken giant’. It used to be a country that had some pretty good ideals and those ideals were based on RESPONSIBLE DEMOCRACY, FREEDOM AND A GOOD SENCE OF RELIGIOUS LIVING AT LEAST FOR A MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE. There were problems and plenty of them but as long as Americans tried to follow some type of ‘wisdom’ they became a Super Power.

Nowadays, things have changed so much and things have become so complicated with amoral behavior looking better than moral behavior that America seems to be sunk in its own confusion about what is happening in the world today. In fact it’s a mess but still with an outer layer of toughness. In one sense that is bad because the greater the miscalculation about oneself, the greater and stronger will be the fall.

It was WE who revealed the law (to Moses): therein was guidance and light. By its standard, the Jews were judged by the prophets who bowed (as in Islam) to ALLAH’s WILL and by the rabbis and the doctors of law {put over them}: for to them was entrusted the protection of ALLAH’s BOOK, and they were witnesses thereto: therefore fear not men, but fear ME, and sell not MY signs for a miserable price. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) Unbelievers.     Q (5:44)

The fall of mighty societies in the past has been repeated over and over again in various ways in the Quran. These societies fell not because they didn’t have armies or people to maintain a society but they fell due to moral ineptitude and religious ignorance or a careless attitude to the same. And we learn that ALLAH’s WORD does NOT change!

And recite (and teach) what has been revealed to you of the BOOK of your LORD: none can change HIS WORDS, and none will you find as a refuge other than HIM.    Q (18:27)

The WORD of your LORD does find its fulfilment in truth and in justice: None can change HIS words: for HE is the ONE WHO hears and knows ALL {things}.                           Q (6:115)

Right now the ‘plug’ covering the bathtub’s drain is only slightly unhinged and so the water of ‘normalcy’ is not pouring out with rapidity. However, once the plug is pulled, chaos will result and that will be the time for the Ad-dajjal or the Anti-christ to come forward out of his shell of pretense (Daniel 11:29 and the hadith concerning his being made angry) and to declare himself openly. This may take two decades or less or two decades and a little bit more but, in truth, ONLY ALLAH KNOWS FOR SURE!

If Russia is blocked from their nefarious dreams now, they will have at least a foot in the door from whence to cause and exploit chaos in the region. And with what is happening in the region today, economically, socially as well as politically, I would say that they will be expecting glad tidings headed their way as long as they don’t make any sudden moves that will ‘tip’ their true hand for patience is the key.

The next problem falls on the Arabs themselves. They have been depicted as an argumentative lot in the Old Testament and without a deep commitment to Islamic ideals, they have a tendency to quarrel so much with each other that they can be seen to run around in circles. Because they don’t see this type of stagnancy, they are like the blind following the blind. Therefore, Russia knows this and has ‘agents’ around the various countries playing at ‘careful’ destabilization. An old saying goes something like this: “Keep your friends close but your enemies closer.

What this amounts to is a simple but effective policy on how to ‘subdue’ the Arabs in such a way as to make them dependent on Russia and to move away from the West. Not that the West is a great friend of the Arabs but they are more open and less devious in their approach of the goals of nation harmonization than Russia.

Does Russia care if Muslims pray or not? No, they don’t but they always keep tabs on what is happening and the only acceptable Muslim is one that will work for the state, meaning Russian methodology, even if it is against his or her religion. So what we really have is two ‘dogs’ fighting over a bone. The bone here represents Arab countries and the dogs represent the Russians and the West which is mainly Russia’s adversary. Russia is good at filling the vacuum and ‘inching’ its way to the vital organs of the body politic.

A note concerning the true Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary (pbh):

Historians, studiers of scripture and other religious ‘thinkers’ might find the idea of a true ‘Messiah’ filtering before, around and during the time of the birth of baby Jesus (pbh). The Dead Sea Scrolls are extremely valuable in presenting a background into reality NOT especially going to be liked by the dyed-in-the-wool Christians.

The society before the birth of Jesus (pbh) was composed of various Jewish sects of which some of them actually desired the coming of the ‘Jewish’ Messiah due to the agony of the foreign, Roman control of Palestine. According to the sentiment of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Jewish Messiah would be a Gifted MAN born of a woman who would lead a revolution against foreign religions (basically pagan Rome) and defeat them thereby setting up a ‘holy place’ and lordly place of exalted excellence for the only real, complete religion at that time which was Judaism.

The problem was that sectarian violence especially between the dominant Jewish sect, the Pharisees, and the more truthful sect, the Essenes, or authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls, was a big issue for a few centuries. The Essenes accused the Pharisees of straight out hypocrisy and tampering with the sacred scriptures.

“How can you say, ‘We are wise and the LAW {established by the ONE GOD} is with us {JEWS}’? But, behold, the FALSE PEN OF THE SCRIBES HAS MADE IT {what you are saying} INTO A LIE.       Jeremiah (8:8).

They also had a vision of ‘hosting’ the birth of the real Messiah by conducting certain rituals, at Qumran, which they believed would be pleasing to their LORD such that HE would send them their Messiah into the vessel of a woman that they would choose to host this mighty soul.

First, they knew from Biblical prophecy that he would be born of a ‘pure’ woman and with this knowledge they set up a camp near the Dead Sea disguised as a place of perfume business. Its real function was to house certain female children before they reached puberty and desire from the ONE GOD that HE would choose one of them as a vessel for the bringing in of the soul of the Messiah. Their rituals were very strict concerning cleanliness and only the best of foods would be given to these female vessels.

The point is that from the birth of Mary (peace be upon her) from her hometown in the Western part of Palestine, she was moved to the EAST where this ‘camp’ was located. Personally, I have always found that the verse in the Quran dealing with this is just simply fantastic. The knowledge of Qumran and the understanding of Qumran after its destruction and abandonment went off the grid until around the middle of the 20th Century.

Relate in the Book (the story of) Mary, when she withdrew from her family {dwelling place – home} to a place in the East {Qumran}.    Q (19: 16)

It has always struck me with awe about how complete, simple and yet at the same time the Quran can be so comprehensive and so inclusive and so much filled with layered knowledge that if it was opened up in full to let its weight of knowledge shine forth that there is NO DOUBT THAT THE MOUNTAIN OF HARD ROCK WOULD CRUMBLE INTO DUST! That is part of ALLAH’s GLORIOUS Book allowed on the face of the Earth! That is simply incredible! And it is a witness against those who mistreat it.

Had WE sent down this Qur’an on a mountain, verily, you would have seen it humble itself and cleave asunder for fear of ALLAH. Such are the similitudes which WE propound to men that they may reflect.  Q (59:21)

If there were a Qur’an with which mountains were moved, or the earth were cloven asunder, or the dead were made to speak, (this would be the one!) But, truly, the command is with ALLAH in all things! Do not the Believers know, that, had ALLAH (so) willed, He could have guided all mankind (to the right)? But the Unbelievers, never will disaster cease to seize them for their (ill) deeds, or to settle close to their homes, until the promise of ALLAH comes to pass, for, verily, ALLAH will NOT FAIL in HIS promise.   Q (13:31)

So the Messiah was born and was looked after because the baby, although a prophet, had to grow up and develop maturity as any normal baby does but still he spoke to the people when only a baby. Yet I have called Jesus (pbh) the most CENTRAL FIGURE in Earth’s history. Not the most fantastic human being in Earth’s history but the most central and dominating figure in human history.

To me, Prophet Muhammad (pbh) is the greatest man who has ever walked the face of the Earth. And if I had no knowledge about him, I would say in my lack of understanding that, for sure, he would be, by his own actions and merits, worthy of Paradise.

Yet, those who have studied hadith or even read the Quran should know that even when ‘Ali, his cousin, asked him if he could get into Paradise by his own dependency on himself the Prophet said the truth. The answer was NO! And that tells us right there that the whole life, the WHOLE EXISTANCE OF ALL THINGS THAT EVER WAS, IS AND WILL BE DEPENDS SOLEY ON THE ONE GOD!!!

Now that that is stated, why must Jesus or more correctly the Christ-soul be the most central figure or the representative man on Earth? Well for one thing, according to the New Testament, he has been on this Earth many times ‘helping to lead’ the charge for righteousness. That is according to the understanding given in the New Testament of which I have written about before.

How many times has he been here on Earth? Only ALLAH KNOWS FOR SURE but I would imagine over 30 times. So what? He had a duty to do that was given him ACCORDING TO THE NEW TESTAMENT and he just surrendered his will to ALLAH’s WILL. He was just a man but a man on a mission! However, guessing about these things (his mission, his times and doings) prove only to be a waste of time and in reality are NOT profitable for the soul!

Jesus’ mission of course was composed of many things but his crowning achievement was to reach a certain stage of sinless purity and be the announcer for GOD’S PROPHET. Truly all of the prophets belong to GOD but as all the prophets prayed behind Muhammad (pbh) that night in Jerusalem, he is THAT ONE who takes the title and the duty for the salvation of those who are not so perfect on that terrible day when ALLAH vents HIS WRATH, which being so great and unmeasurable, will shake all existence! We cannot expect anything less from our LORD WHO IS BEYOND COMPARE!!!

The problem that has caused many of religious thinkers to come dashing their heads against the proverbial stone wall when analyzing the New Testament, for example, is that it is part historical and part Gnostic in its writings and both of these ‘table’ buddies are not always compatible. Especially, Gnostic type writings, which when studied most often, give the studier fits as when trying to digest the ‘message’ given. We see the works of John in his so-called Gospel, the works of Paul and some things in Acts to give the seeker of truth absolute fits!

However, once one can, by ALLAH’s WILL, get beyond the obvious and not so obvious forgeries and can use hadith or Quranic knowledge properly and put the verses in the New Testament in question into a more meaningful context, then things become clearer. For example, in these writings I use Paul as an opponent of Jesus’ crucifixion whereas others have used Paul as a proponent for his crucifixion.

One can’t have it both ways! I think it is an oversimplification to believe that Paul was running around with some special mission to destroy the religion of truth at that time. I believe the articles called, A Great Miracle That Never Happened’ and The god of the North: A Demagogue Arises said it best when trying to fathom why ‘differences’ have crept into this sacred subject called religion.

From the article, ‘A Great Miracle That Never Happened’

Paul, the enigma, touched upon certain mysteries, such as ‘Principalities’ that if not clearly understood, might and in reality did, create certain havoc within the later community of so-called Christian scholars. Of course they were warned but the arrogant and bombastic among them NEVER seem to learn and that is one reason the mess was created.

From the article, The god of the North: A Demagogue Arises’

“So HE (ALLAH) rewards the good and confuses the careless and throws off the constant rejecters who are in general condemned to never find their way {as they won’t repent from their errors}. That is because they have repeatedly been given chances and have thrown them away. So the foolish think that they can overcome (or outlast) THE GOD and that GOD’s Master Plan is WEAK. So much for GOD’s gifts! So as the Quran and other scriptures declare, those people are led to delusion by following or believing what is in their dispositions.

If ALLAH were to hasten for men the ill (they have earned) as they would fain hasten on the good, then would their respite be settled at immediately: But WE leave those who rest not their hope on their meeting with US, in their trespasses, wandering in blind distraction.    Q (10: 11)

But how to get them there? By telling the truth but having the truth sound a little complicated. Complicated enough to cause the devils among men to see what is not there and to be rewarded for it ( their selfish aggrandizement) while those who are careless and spurn clear knowledge will tag along after the one who colors the crime as a virtue. Hence, Brother Paul and his unintended mission. Mission accomplished!!! ALLAH ALONE KNOWS BEST!

Not by his smarts but by a Plan set in motion long ago. Truly, the whole world could have been made up of only all believers but that was not meant to be.

If it had been your LORD’s Will, they would ALL have believed – ALL who are on Earth. Will you then compel mankind against their will to believe?                                                     Q (10: 99)”

The evidence for Paul’s innocence concerning making innovations about the Creed of Christ, Jesus is overwhelming. The Ebonite sect, as well as just a few other early Christian sects’ criticism concerning Paul (from harsh to mild) came after his death by several decades. What is very interesting are the criticisms leveled against Paul by the actual and original Disciples of Jesus (pbh). They didn’t amount to much at all being mostly precautionary in nature so as to quell current Jewish fears and calm down the hotheads desire to be disruptive towards the ‘WAY’. And they (the founding fathers and friends) did keep tabs on what was going on in the far reaches of the realm.

The Ebonite sect is probably the most virulent of the Jewish-Christian sects that tries to demonize Paul. Their belief in only the ONE GOD is great but they have other peculiar beliefs such as the refusal to believe in the Virgin Birth of Jesus while declaring that Joseph the Carpenter was the ‘actual’ physical father of Jesus (pbh). That thought alone can tell one that they just aren’t totally ‘all there’!

Of course, keeping tabs on what was going on outside of Palestine which is a very important point in safeguarding the truth, is a priority point due to the time frame of their existence and the stature of their faith (like the Muslims, the first generation that actually lived with Jesus would be in a much stronger position of judgment as to what is actually truth then groups of people who came decades after their death).

That is not the only point of dispute. Paul himself declared that there would be wolves in sheep’s clothing coming after him from both outside and inside the groups he was talking with. And like a piece of cloth, when the tear begins and is not repaired, the hole becomes larger and larger as time goes by rendering the fabric just about totally useless!

For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

And of your own selves shall men arise speaking perverse things to draw away disciples after them.  Acts (20: 29-30)

Paul had enemies by the bucket load mainly due to his being the formally strong-type of religious Jewish defender of the old school changing to a strong condemner of the heartless, blind and stubborn Jew. That is not a way to win friends but in all honesty he does go out of his way to show the greatness of the Messiah in order to EMPHASIZE his reality.

Naturally, some of the Jews will not like being put in their place or made to look foolish. And as Islam suggests, the Jews of old became too solidified in their ways unable or unwilling to adjust to the ‘refreshing of the WAY’ by the new prophet Jesus (pbh). So there is that.

And the LORD said to Moses, “I have seen this people and, behold, it {this people} is a stiff-necked people.     Exodus (32:9)


Thenceforth {after that} were your hearts hardened: They became like a rock and even worse in hardness. For among rocks there are some from which rivers gush forth; others there are which when split asunder send forth water; and others which sink for fear of ALLAH. And ALLAH is not unmindful of what you do.

Can you (men of Faith) entertain the hope that they will believe in you? Seeing that a party of them heard the Word of ALLAH, and perverted it knowingly after they understood it.     Q (2:74-75)

Now, several decades after his death, and with some self-styled preachers trying to emphasize the greatness and glory of the Messiah, while adding little tidbits of new but strange and totally false information, the notion of the importance of following the Sunnah of Jesus’ teachings started to slip away. And Paul did declare that the believer should follow the ‘rightful traditions’* that the Master taught and which was supposed to be taught in the synagogues but ended up being taught more in private gatherings due to Jewish persecutions against the ‘new Jew’ on the block.

*Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold {to} the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle.   2 Thess. (2:15)

Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ that you withdraw yourselves from every brother that walks disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received from us.   2 Thess. (3:6)

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the {false} tradition of men {use of false traditions like those who sat in the judgment seat of Moses but who invented falsehood}, after the rudiments of the world, AND NOT AFTER {the truth in} CHRIST.    Colossians (2:8)

Getting beyond these feelings, one can sense it a duty, if not an honor or privilege to engage the spirit and mind in a quest as a seeker of truth! Those who oppose this can feel secure in sitting on their so-called laurels and saying, “Let others do work on religion. We will just sit back and be guided by our own personal whims or desires. After all, why should we work to understand what we already know?” Or better yet, they could say, “Why should we improve on our religion for don’t we have the real truth to suffice us?”

The Prophet of truth, Prophet Muhammad (pbh) has declared that if by one’s actions a person who is non-Muslim becomes Muslim, that person will be awarded Paradise. That is an admirable gift from our LORD and because HE is the AL-HAQQ (THE TRUTH), SUCH WILL BE THE CASE BEYOND DOUBT. Although we are all human beings made of ‘dirt’ and not free from sin, we HAVE TO DEPEND UPON HIS TRUTH for our SALVATION or what HE has called “THE FINAL (ULTIMATE) GOAL TO STRIVE FOR TO ACHIEVE MAN’S DESTINATION.
