As is usual in my writings I am using the symbols {  } to aid in the interpretation of the records.

The world was titillated by the so-called end of the world business from the Mayan Calendar. Well that date of so-called destruction came and went. However, in less than 30 years the world will lose billions of people in what will seem to be the end of the world and scriptural-wise you can count on it.

Not only that but the Israelis will turn to the Anti-christ for their redemption but will be wiped out by their heinous presumption. “Sure”, you might incredulously say because this notion is found in Islam. Well yes, but what I’m referring to is found in the New Testament and comes directly from the mouth of Jesus the son of Mary (pbh)!

These and more things will be discussed in the following article and such notions can be gleaned from thousands of years of religious texts only of course when they are understood and games of ‘one’s upmanship’ are left to the weak of mind and prejudiced of heart.

A lot of things have appeared on this Website ( that seems both enlightening and unsettling and, would you believe it, both of these things happen at the same time. Even the title of this article might seem a little foreboding especially to the novice. Can one imagine a world turned nearly upside down with things often appearing ‘as stranger than fiction’ but quite fantastically true?

In this article, let us look back in order to look forward. That in itself sounds like an oxymoron but so many things in life appear to be that way. So let us take a broader picture of what has occurred in my 7 books and many articles and see if we can’t pierce a little bit of the darkness that always seems to get in the way of common sense.

However, note that complete, unbiased truth is always best proven from hindsight rather than futuristic thoughts. One is either qualified (well-balanced, i.e. not filled with a secret agenda, but rather truth-loving and earnest to seek out facts rather than self-justification or self-glorification (openly or hidden secretly in the depths of one’s soul) or one is not qualified (usually one living vicariously in a self-created bubble of delusions or illusions).

Let us review some topics featured on this Website and see if further light can be shed on these things. One might ask certain questions concerning the following areas of interest…

Is the current New Testament a piece of literary fantasy or is it a piece of inspired work? Did Saint Paul really ruin the proper teachings of Jesus and did he start a new religion? Was Jesus (pbh) really crucified on the cross as so many want to believe? Does the New Testament predict that the Jews of Israel will willingly follow the Anti-christ? Does the Old Testament declare that God will send in the future a Holy Book that will be 100% pure in its native language? Are we in the End of Time or are we near the beginning of a New Time Promised in the Holy Books? Do we, as a world of humanity, have less than 3 decades left before we come close to facing extinction?

For once, I will try to start from the beginning queries and go in the order that the questions were placed.

1. The New Testament, one of the most argued about books in the whole world, is really quite fascinating. Only the fundamentalists, who are NOT really fundamentalists at all but are more correctly described as ‘literalists’ believe that the New Testament and even the Old Testament are completely 100% bonafide factual.*

But what most people don’t seem to understand is that the New Testament gives off a certain kind aura as if it was meant to either heal or to injure people. It takes a would be believer a strong mind to see these things as in knowing that the ONE GOD full well understands HIS creations and the situations HE puts them in and that HIS REASONS ARE JUST, HONORABLE and ABOVE REPROACH!

The New Testament is a book that was meant to survive in a certain capacity and to be a demonstration of peoples willingness to be able to work through it (people of that persuasion claim it’s from GOD and therefore logically it becomes a must read and to follow if these people are sincere and if they are telling the truth) or else be a trap to wound the soul and mislead. In fact, every real holy book is like that!

WE send down (stage by stage) of the Quran that which is a Healing and a Mercy to those who believe: to the unjust {however} it causes nothing but Loss after Loss.                      Q (17: 82)

Proof of this comes from those who have read the New Testament and convert to Islam or to those Christians who have been led to deny fabricated doctrine but NOT true virtues versus those who read it and cherish a man as their creator lord, god and savior while striving with great eagerness to create new doctrines and other assorted fairytales – even when it is abundantly clear in the New Testament to the patient man or woman that to do so is to invite ruination on one’s soul!

That might not seem to be fair. What is meant by that is how can the GOD lead men into foolishness? In truth, HE doesn’t for it is the brazen foolish that take the Sublime writings or sayings of the holy and wise prophets and twist them imprudently to what the unwise desire of their own free will! Hence, it is not the ONE GOD WHO set out to destroy them but they, by their own hands, have actively sought out a lifestyle that will destroy themselves.

If you could see, when the Angels take the souls of the Unbelievers (at death) (how) they smite their faces and their backs, (saying): “Taste the CHASTISEMENT OF THE BLAZING FIRE –


So we start off our topic with the New Testament which has been cleverly put together not surviving unscathed, mind you, but surviving in such a way as to hide certain facts from those who thought that their tampering with the various texts would completely succeed. A real close inspection of the New Testament reveals certain disturbing things about the nature of Jesus (pbh), whether he was crucified or not, the early beginnings of the spread of truth and many other things.

In effect, the New Testament is a document which, just like the Old Testament, allows the good to get closer to the ONE GOD and the bad to commit criminal acts against themselves. Those in whose hearts there is a DELUSION will adhere to the sickness they have brought within their own souls. So in effect, they who are against the ‘Holy Word’ but originally, in the beginning, swore to help the Holy Word are held accountable as deceivers against their own selves and therefore have become deceived. { Romans (1: 24-26)}

A brief look at ‘modern’ history follows. The key moment of no return happened in 70 AC with the destruction of the Temple and any hope for outright religious freedom – Judaism and the New Way brought by Jesus (pbh). For this was the time, the time of the Roman Empire to put its foot down and a time for paganism to prosper…and why not? Pagans were real earthy people and that fitted in well with the powers that be at that time.

Some historians have suggested, for example, that up to 100 AC there were only a total of 7,000 or a little more Christians in the Roman Empire. This number is very miniscule considering all the supposed efforts of preaching going on. The pagans who were unopposed to Rome were in the vast majority of the citizenry and the real winners after 70 AC.

However, the winners became losers (another oxymoron statement) and paganism started to dwindle but not without doing a great deal of damage. The damage it did was to have those suave philosophers enter into the breach and meld ‘the wine with the water’. After all, if one can get the pagans to see how ‘Christian’ their beliefs were then, by a little bit of prestidigitation, one can more easily convert the frivolous and get bigger ‘bucks’ flowing one’s way. An example of this is the making of All Saints’ Day and jolly good ol’ Christmas holiday to mention a few examples from the legion that could be offered.

And no man puts new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.

But new wine must be put into new bottles {new way of behavior}, and both are preserved.    Luke (5: 37-38)

Of course, the New Testament declares that this mixing must be avoided as in mixing the old wine with the new or by not putting new wine in old wine bags – but who cares about that. So, historically we have damning proof of this criminal action.

This action can be seen from several so-called high placed church fathers (authorities) who have, like Justin Martyr, melded pagan hoaxes with the life of Jesus (pbh) so that things like the ‘divine crucified beings set up as saviors’ found in pagan cults could be transposed onto the ‘new religion’ favored by these philosophers thus literally running a numbers racket by enticing pagans to enter Christianity and making those who were involved with this hocus-pocus seemingly akin to being divine geniuses.

But as we sometimes know, history is not so smooth and even former pagans (depending upon what they really have in their hearts as judged by the ONLY ONE WHOSE JUDGMENT IS COMPLETE) like the unknown writer of the Acts (guided a little somewhat by Paul and others) can produce a historical document predicting the entrance of a new prophet to come after Jesus (pbh) and just how the glorious kingdom under the auspices of the Messiah (pbh) will be governed by Islamic rules and regulations! See article # 8, The Law of Grace and the Law of Mercy.

Yes, forget the Quran and authentic hadiths for awhile! When one has the New Testament acting as a very good advertisement to become a sincere Muslim and investing time in trying to become a good Muslim, what do Christians say? Whatever they say, they should know that it is being placed in a record that does NOT LIE. Does that sound hopeful or does that sound threatening? After all, it comes from the New Testament so weigh that on your own scale of importance. And this too is covered in my writings.

And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

He that says, I know him, and DOES NOT keep his commandments, is a liar, and truth is not in him.

He that says he abides in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked {behave in like manner as he behaved}.  I John (2: 3-4 & 6)

For therein is the righteousness of GOD {the eternal un-perverted TRUTH} revealed from faith to faith {down through the ages from prophet to prophet} as it is written, the Just {peoples} shall live by {the commands or rules of} faith.  Romans (1: 17)

If you love me keep my commandments.

And I shall pray the Father and he shall give you another Comforter {prophet} that he may abide with you forever {that you should be raised up in his Ummah for Judgment}.    (John 14: 15-16)

So as the Quran says – it was only AFTER the fact that knowledge came to them and their puffed up vain disputes that THE WAY carried on by Jesus (pbh) entered into what even his immediate followers were so adamant about and that this was the time of the end that was drawing upon them on their very heals (the knowledge of the Pure WAY was being overthrown). In other words, as Paul had decreed, the wolves in sheep’s clothing who would seek to destroy the truth were soon to be lining up all over the place especially after the death of the prominent ones, including Peter and Paul happening before 70 AC.

And WE granted them Clear Signs in Affairs (of Religion – the Correct Pathway of belief and Behavior): it was only AFTER knowledge had been granted to them that they fell into schisms {wrangling disputes}, through insolent envy among themselves {arrogant hairsplitting}. Verily your LORD will judge between them on the Day of Judgment as to those matters in which they set up differences.                    Q (45: 17)

That is the big picture. The smaller picture showing more minute details can be gleaned from reading the various articles on this Website including article # 13 (The Crown and the Cross).

2. The focal point was Paul and it just so happened that I wanted to put in a time element between the Resurrection of Jesus (pbh) and the times of Paul’s preaching and his death and compare it to the verse in the Quran dealing with the turning point of the Christian debacle (calamity).

Paul remains an intriguing figure and one I think that is not very important for everyday worshipers but one who has been constantly put in the middle of the storm of controversy. As a Muslim, my job was to seek out the truth within set limits and present a more coherent historical view of what took place so very long ago. So, I didn’t look at the holy records as adversaries but as coordinating partners along with true history and to see if those things could be conceptualized and utilized.

For example, 2 Peter and Revelations were not written by Peter or John the Apostle. They were written by Peter’s secretary/disciple (2 Peter) and John the Presbyter (Revelations) respectively. However, that does not make them false as both of those books are important to give a quite revealing twist to the truth. 2 Peter declares the truth about Paul as any person who loves puzzles can figure out and Revelations discusses the monstrous whore (named as a city – Rome) which will be responsible for carrying out the defilements of Jesus’ Way.

The biggest champion of the so-called crucifixion on a superficial reading of the New Testament would be Paul. His writings existed BEFORE the Gospels were written and his writings later influenced certain dabblers in the art of forgery to make ‘peculiar’ editing’s of the Written Word.

However, Paul did NOT believe in the crucifixion and that is adequately expressed in his words which RING OUT JUST AS TRUE TODAY AS IN THE PAST! His words about the crucifixion are words of scorn and not praise. For he uses two very important words which are still valid to both parties involved: Jews and Christians. These words are: ‘Stumblingblock and Foolishness’.

For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks (Gentiles) seek after wisdom:

 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a Stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks Foolishness.            1Cor. (1: 22-23)

To get at the truth one must dwell on it for some time. The Jews were adamant in their beliefs that Jesus was a hated, criminal imposter. When the Roman Empire decided to kind of embrace Christianity as its self image, Jewish declarations became insulting to the homespun hero of Rome (the new god-man or man-god) and there entered centuries of Jewish misery – the wandering, vagabond, shunned Jew as was predicted by Jesus (pbh).

Jewish blindness to the truth resulted in their being very much abused, scorned and hated throughout history. And what Jesus (pbh) declared of them as to tormenting and even killing their own prophets made them very angry against the truth-loving Jesus and the Way he brought and still they continue to STUMBLE over this to this very day! Psychologically speaking, by pretending to side with the west they are taking their revenge against the very peoples who treated them as dogs in the past.

To the practical but earthy mind of the growing Christian thinkers, who until this day consider themselves a ‘glorious product of Greek thought and temperament’ and who cherished the thought that their man-god served them as a crowning point to their delusions (how fortunate for them that they could pursue the world and worldly lusts yet have such a high creature grant them eternal life and goodness just for saying a few words of faith), the notion of FOOLISHNESS can better be understood. Simply it means that that notion is downright FOOLISH besides being downright wrong – the notion that a god died for our sins as well as the doctrine of ‘vicarious atonement’.

Paul as well as every other person honestly involved in real religious thought believed in the CRUCIFIXION AS SOMETHING. That something is the ‘curtailment’ of a frivolous, meaningless life and a return to a remembrance of who we originally were by sacrificing oneself in duties of remembrance of the ONE GOD as well as prayer and fasting or in Arabic – The Great Jihad!

Curtailment does NOT mean becoming a hermit or Sufi saint or going around the world looking like a half-starved cat. It refers basically to the ‘Great Jihad’ which is the battle within every one’s inner self or soul.** So, one would expect that the New Testament would ask people who want to believe in Jesus (pbh) to carry their own cross in the pathway of Jesus (pbh) i.e. following him in a great Jihad. And it does!!!

Then said Jesus to his disciples, “If any man will come after me {follow me}, let him DENY HIMSELF, and take up his cross, and follow me.      Matthew (16: 24)

Anyway, Paul is much too complicated to follow and he shouldn’t be followed because he was no prophet. However, give credit where credit is due and so he did help pass on some knowledge about Prophet Muhammad (pbh) and even the notion that man existed on this planet in some form for a very, very long time – translated here as millions of years.

Wherefore GOD also gave them up to un-cleanliness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:

Who {in the beginning} changed the truth of GOD into a lie {who desecrated the set order of the creation put forth by the GOD and caused bloodshed and mischief}, and worshipped and served the creature {the animal functions more than the spiritual nature of the original noble man-soul} more than {serving} the CREATOR, WHO is BLESSED FOREVER. Amen.

For this cause GOD gave them up unto vile afflictions {and torments}; for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature.                                             Romans (1: 24-26)

Because the law works wrath {as in one willingly breaking the law laid down by the prophets}: for where there is no law {no prophet giving the WORD i.e. having existed to give the law}, there is no transgression.                Romans (4: 15)

(For until the law {before the law of Guidance brought by the prophets} sin {corruption – evil WAS indeed practiced} in the world; but sin IS NOT IMPUTED {on man} WHEN the LAW does NOT yet exist.   Romans (5: 13)

Ubayy bin Ka’ab declared from the knowledge he received from the Prophet (pbh) that All of mankind was assembled in separate groups giving them the understanding that they were to be made vicegerents on Earth {lords of the Earth} while imparting their wisdom and understanding, i.e. granting them power such that each individual (would be) completely and fully responsible for his actions.  (Hadith)

Therefore, no individual can absolve him or herself (by making excuses) from the responsibility of deviation from ALLAH’s WAY. It therefore becomes man’s duty to make use of all his facilities of the GIFTS granted to them to be able to discern or put up a struggle to discern TRUTH from ERROR.

Of course Paul’s declaration concerning the novice type of believer was correct in that he declared that they were NOT ready for meat but must be ‘fed’ milk. That is very wise because knowledge is like a bomb; it can move things in a hurry but it can also destroy things.

I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto you were not able to bear it, neither yet are you able {to bear it}.   1Corinthians (3: 2)

3. The New Testament does paint a picture of Jesus (pbh) which admittedly is sparse but fortunately for us is basically, pretty clear. Throwing out the twisted forgeries which are basically a few words or sentences twisted around to form a certain ‘school of thought’, one can actually see the real Jesus (pbh) emerge.

A man who is quiet but supremely confident and very much well-aware of who he was and what job he had to perform comes out of the New Testament quite clearly. A man who was a highly favored servant of the ONE GOD, a well protected man, surrounded by angels, a man who had a miraculous nature of being a dominating original man – Vicegerent (but without stain {sin}) but one who had to eat food and of course expel the waste products of that food in the normal way. The normal way of the flesh is that way of the human being on the face of the Earth.

And every spirit that DOESN’T CONFESS that Jesus Christ is come in the Flesh is NOT of GOD: and this is that spirit of anti-christ, whereof you have heard that it should come; and even now is already in the world.     1 John (4: 3)

As to the one who was really crucified, these articles along with several of my books discuss this point. The interested reader can find out about that. The point is that the person on the cross was not dressed in a loin cloth but actually ‘stark naked’! The position of Jesus (pbh) in the eyes of the ONE GOD is very high (as are all the prophets) and although these people did suffer hardships and toil, they were never humiliated as to be helpless and stark naked in front of a crowd of unruly gawkers.

As to the Last Supper, the New Testament contains only a drop in the sea. The Quran has a much better description of the Last Supper. The Last Supper occurs AFTER the so-called crucifixion and not before it for it is the last time that the disciples and Jesus as a group were together. Some saw him after this but not as a group.

Before the crucifixion according to the New Testament Jesus (pbh) already knew the future of what was going to take place. He told his Disciples only that of what he knew would be safe for them to hear and it is very telling (about his non-death) that he would meet them at a certain place and a certain time after a certain deed (crucifixion) was done. This was not a 50-50 chance or a gamble but a certainty!

And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem and Jesus went before them: and they were amazed; and they followed, they were afraid; and he took again the twelve {into his confidence}, and began to tell them what things should happen to him.                              Mark (10: 32)

According to the New Testament after the ‘real’ last supper, Jesus (pbh) shares mysteries with his Disciples but probably tells them what to report and what to keep hidden so as not to damage the flock.

And he said to them, “These are the words which I spoke to you, while I was yet with you {on the way to Jerusalem} that all things must be fulfilled, which were written {as prophecies} in the Law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning me.

Then he opened their understanding, that they might understand the {meaning behind the} scriptures.         Luke (24: 44-45)

This can also go back to Paul in sensing his meaning of feeding the flock with ‘milk’ but not ‘meat’ as the flock is deemed to be better off practicing purity rather than dwelling on things not immediately appropriate to their station or helpful for their salvation.

And pursue not that of which you have no knowledge; for surely the hearing, the sight, the heart all of those shall be questioned (concerning this).   Q (17: 36)

Never give what is holy to dogs or throw your pearls {of wisdom} before pigs. Otherwise, they will trample them with their feet and then turn around and attack you.   (International Standard Version – Matthew (7: 6)

So we can learn from the New Testament, especially from Paul, that yes, there are mysteries out there but if one is grounded in real faith, his or her faith would survive even though shaken. However, it is best to avoid that which is beyond their comprehensions so as to be strong in practical faith. Going to the book of James, the half-brother of Jesus (pbh), one finds that that practicality of doings things is highly lauded.

The true meaning of the crucifixion thing can be written into or out of the New Testament very easily simply because THERE WAS AN ACTUAL CRUCIFIXION! So doctoring the books, as they say, becomes a lot easier than people think. However, the TRUTH of the matter is that Jesus (pbh) was neither on the cross nor was he killed!

Anyway, the crucifixion dilemma was not a big deal in the several decades following the Resurrection of Jesus (pbh). Even Peter’s secretary/disciple Glaucias is on record (admittedly secondhand) that Jesus was not the one put on the cross. The Disciples were probably told to say that Jesus was not killed but that he arose to the heavens and also told not to go into any details in depth on that subject.

Thus was laid, in part, the trap that Paul and the Quran allude to. Not that there haven’t been many such ‘problematic areas in the past’ that could reflect back to these verses but how history would have changed if the Jews and the Christians would have celebrated and looked forward to GOD’s HOLY and CHOSEN WORD – the Quran!

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe in a lie:

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.        2 Thessalonians (2: 11-12).

You have met this fate because you rejoiced on the earth in things other than the truth, and then exulted in it.”     Q (40:75)

4. People would find it hard to believe that the New Testament predicts according to the words of Jesus (pbh) that the Jews of Israel will attach themselves to the Anti-christ before the coming of Jesus and will be completely wiped out for their presumptions!

The verses in John 5 (42-44) in the New Testament that declares the Jews of Israel will seek out and follow the Anti-christ is not hard to understand in comparative religion but obviously seems to be quite a new thought for many Christians. Well, just analyze the following verses!

Jesus (pbh) is talking to those people who should have recognized him for what he really was – a prophet for their line (Jewish) bringing correct revelation from the ONE GOD and also that he was a very high sign unto all of mankind in that he became the ‘chosen one’ to administer that paradise on Earth. In other words, he IS THE MESSIAH.

But I know you, that you have NOT the LOVE of GOD in you.

I {your master/prophet} am come in my Father’s name {by HIS WILL to do HIS WILL} and you refuse to receive me: {however} if another {master} shall come in his own name {self-glorified and of delusional will}, you will {gladly} receive him {and do as he so commands}.

{It is so because} how can you {really} believe, which {as a people you} receive honor one of another, while you {refuse to} seek the honor that comes only from GOD.    John (5: 42-44)

In order to understand these verses one must NOT compare apples with pencils but stay put on the same trajectory and level that Jesus (pbh) is on. That level is NOT the level of a mere carpenter or seamstress; it is the level of one who is to be compared with one of likeness on his own level or the same but as OPPOSITES – the positive versus the negative, the light versus the darkness, the builder up of souls versus the destroyer of souls.

In other words, he is telling that the Jews of Israel will follow another – one like him but one filled with hate (for the truth) and one filled with darkness. One who serves NOT the ONE GOD but one who proclaims self-importance by being highly deceitful and a great liar and one that corrupted souls would find comfort in. This is the opposite of Jesus (pbh) who claimed nothing for himself but service to the ONE GOD, did not come seeking fortune or fame of self-importance and who rightfully claimed that in him one would find true life – not darkness or death of the soul!

5. Does the Old Testament declare that there will be a religious book that will be completely pure and be, of course, the WORD OF GOD! Yes it does. I have taken two very small verses in the Old Testament and written a few pages concerning their meanings. The weight of evidence in these two small verses concerning the Muslims’ Holy Book, the Quran, is so huge as to be virtually unstoppable.

That and the commandment of Jesus (pbh) to follow the spirit of truth or Munhamanna (Muhammad) in the Aramaic (Syriac dialect) language are quite telling. The job of earnest seekers of truth is to throw out the excuses and face reality and that is that.

So one can actually use the New Testament to justify his or her belief in the Islamic Faith as a Faith that is True, Just, Correct and EXPECTED! To repeat myself again, I will repeat several verses from the New Testament to make things doubly clear in going from FAITH to FAITH as Paul declared!

For therein is the righteousness of GOD {the eternal un-perverted TRUTH} revealed from faith to faith {down through the ages from prophet to prophet} as it is written, the Just {peoples} shall live by {the commands or rules of} faith.  Romans (1: 17)

If you love me keep my commandments.

And I shall pray the Father and he shall give you another Comforter {prophet} that he may abide with you forever {that you should be raised up in his Ummah for Judgment}.    (John 14: 15-16)

A person asked the Prophet (pbh) about the good deeds that he had done during the days of ignorance {the days when falsehoods abounded and truth was scarce} and about what reward ALLAH has given him. The Prophet (pbh) told him {as his reward for doing good without the knowledge of faith but going on his internal manifestations of his heart} that ALLAH has rewarded him with the ISLAM {that is to live and die and be raised up on the TRUTH}.    (Hadith)

Zephaniah 3: 9-10 (New International Version)


Then I will purify the lips of the peoples, that all of them may call on the name of the LORD and serve him shoulder to shoulder.
From beyond the rivers of Cush my worshipers, my scattered people, will bring me offerings


Zephaniah 3: 9-10 (21st Century King James Version)

For then will I return to the people a pure language that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve Him with one accord.
From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia My suppliants–even the daughter of My dispersed–shall bring Mine offering.


The Book of Zephaniah was originally written sometime in the 6th century BC although some scholars prefer a second century BC offering possibly borrowing on the originality of a manuscript from the 6th century BC. Practically that amounts to about the same thing.


It is clear and unambiguous that the GIVER of the ‘gift’ being spoken about comes directly from THE ONE LORD and not something that drops into a man’s head by his own doing. In other words, the gift that will be given is from GOD and directly from HIM and no other. This gift is mentioned as purified lips or a pure language.


Verse number 9 talks of purified lips of the peoples or a pure language. When a person talks about using the lips of peoples, one is talking about a manner of speech and when one talks about a manner of speech; one is talking about a certain language that will be used.

Among humanity there is no known pure language that has ever been invented by the hands of man. There has NEVER been a common language that has ever remained pure because like man, language that is developed from a creature (man) is like that creature – changing.

The Eskimo living in his environment has perhaps over a hundred words for snow but people living in the desert may only have one or two words for this phenomenon. So language reflects the utility of man’s ‘changing world’ and hence the language changes – meaning that it does not remain pure but becomes adulterated according to need. Hence, the expression ‘I am bad’ can actually mean that I am good in the same language.

So at least we know that there will be a language involved instead of tap dancing. This language has to be a special language and not anything that man could think of because it will have the property of being pure and remaining pure and that will be quite a feat due to man’s proclivity in messing things up! Moreover, we cannot forget that it will be directly from the ONE GOD and who would ever attribute to HIM imperfection but one who is deformed in the soul.

Also, the language cannot be common everyday speech because that would also get messed up. Rather the language must be very special and even ceremonial for it to be ‘locked up’ and kept pure and unsullied by the hands of men. The type of ceremonial expressions used must not be looked upon as a run of the mill experience like joining a club but rather put into an exalted position to merit such a stance as being pure and kept pure.

There is only one logical form of highest thought taken by most men from the past to the present and that is the form of RELIGION or the continuation of life rather than just living and dying for no reason. Hence, this protected language which is PURE and going to remain PURE is a religious language.

Being a religious language that remains PURE cannot be for one person or for one country and as the verses claim, which is fairly easy to figure out, this language will be for various peoples who practice this form of worship or belief.

A pure language like rituals will change over a period of time UNLESS of course it is in a form that a person can say and remember that it becomes the proverbial ‘written in stone’ language or a language unaltered through time.

In other words, this language may be spoken but it has to be PRESERVED AND REVERED such that it is in a written form that can be used as a standard for checking the veracity of the spoken form or written forms coming from it and so highly thought of that any attempt to fool around with it will bring ‘dire consequences’. Hence, this written form must be duplicated in great quantities for the peoples and can be easily checked out as to its maintaining its ‘perfection’.

So a record of the formation, development, delivery of this language has to be kept as from the beginning of its origins so as to be able to show that it has a track record and not just some kind of fairytale story as an invisible book kept by and controlled by high priests. Therefore, the best form of preservation is not a book of rules but an actual book by which a standard can be formed to test any copies that would be made of this book or recitations given from this book.

The conclusion is simple. A book must exist that is GOD GIVEN and it is and fully remains available in its original language (not just a translated form as the verses from the two of the above Old Testament translated sources are). Well if it is a GOD GIVEN BOOK it will be about the guidance given to man rather than instructions on how to perform tap dancing and this makes it a religious book which in turn makes it a TESTAMENT and that, in turn, makes it a separate phase or form of religion.

Where there is a NEW TESTAMENT GIVEN there is a paradigm change. This means that in the common language of man there will come a NEW RELIGION. This does not mean that the religion is brand spanking new but it is NOT going to be a carbon copy of the preceding religion even though it may harmonize with the old.

For where a testament is {paradigm change}, there must also of necessity be the {some form of} death {transformation – thus causing him to physically leave the world} of the testator.    Heb. (9: 16)

Worshiping with ‘one accord’ can have many different meanings. When one comes across a puzzler like this, one has to fit something in that will be in agreement with those two verses thus making the whole of the verses to harmonize without any contradiction. In other words, one takes that meaning that will not throw off the other meanings given in those two verses.

One can worship with one accord even though we are different as a people if that religion has a basis for belief (a basic doctrine) that all members harmoniously believe in. In other words, the basis of belief must be such that the upholders of that belief system understand that system no matter to what various cultures they are found in. That would be the FIVE PILLARS OF ISLAM forming the basis of that belief system or the bedrock as its foundation amongst those who believe.

By all of its worshipers would mean from pole to pole and ocean to ocean such that Islam would be a ‘worldwide’ religion and not just for one city or country and that the true followers of that ONE RELIGION would follow the same HOLY BOOK without additional words or chapters thrown in or taken out – unlike the Catholic Bible versus the Protestant Bible – and practice the same FIVE PILLARS.

The part about standing ‘shoulder to shoulder’ can mean many things but it is the practice of Muslims to stand harmoniously and joyfully in one accord during one of the essential pillars of faith and that is prayer – for the prayer to be accepted. That is that the prayer line must remain straight or else the prayer is judged to be faulty or unacceptable. This does not apply to any ‘false sect’ but only to mainstream Islam.

Besides the above explanation, how can we know that Islam is being discussed in these two verses from Zephaniah? That is easy for we have the geographical location given. A religion starts descending from ‘above’ to those below. In other words, it has to have a physical presence and start from some place upon someone.

So, in this case we need to have a geographical area to deal with at the very start of this revelation. So it is easy to see that a prophet will be involved and he will be speaking to some people in the beginning and these people will have a home base or be domiciled in some geographical area.

The geographical area will be defined according to these verses based on the nature of the rivers found in the country mentioned. The country mentioned is that area of Cush or what is known as Ethiopia.

The rivers in Ethiopia run in a north-south or south-north direction. Therefore, one must go across from these rivers in an east-west direction to find the location of any religion that emerged from the time of the writing of this book called Zephaniah.

If one was to use willy-nilly logic and jump up or down going in a north or south direction in a random way by leapfrogging so many countries, then one could look for a religious movement with a preserved HOLY LANGUAGE coming from the north or south poles. However, when one restricts the search for this religion by going directly east or west from ‘across the rivers of Ethiopia’ then one must look for that religion in those areas.

By going west from the rivers of Ethiopia one can keep going through the continent of Africa until one hits the Atlantic Ocean and not find any religion that can lay a claim for the fulfillment of the prophecy found in Zephaniah.

However, when one goes to the east from the rivers of Ethiopia one does find an ESTABLISHED WORLD RELIGION THAT FULLFILLS ALL OF THAT PROPHECY FOUND IN THE BOOK OF ZEPHANIAH and this country turns out to be Arabia specifically starting in the area called Makkah.

What about the ‘dispersed or scattered people’? The original children of Israel tended to be tribal and not such a propagating religious movement. Their original language varies with the times and their original records are somewhat suspect due to the various inabilities to keep alive their documents throughout history – translations, yes but originals, NO!

The other branch of this ‘tribe’ commonly called Christians do tend to be propagating as to their faith but do not present either a pure language kept in book form or form of worship. That is, some Testament is used in a foreign-based language (Greek) or many kinds of translations making it easier for people to read and some form of creed is generally believed in but variations as to prayer, times of prayer, rituals and doctrine are quite varied.

These thoughts may be taken as a form of nitpicking but what does the word PURE mean? Does it mean almost or nearly pure or does it imply 100% retrievable and provable pure? The verses in Zephaniah refer to the 100% form of purity not in custom but in the Language Guaranteed and Protected by the CREATOR LORD HIMSELF!

So the dispersed and scattered people would be people covering a wide area that would have been left out of the equation for salvation or those reduced to following some form of tribal paganism or even a tarnished philosophy. There is another thought to this, however.

Considering the New Testament and its warnings of the ‘deterioration of the truth’ brought by Jesus (pbh) (see the article Islam and the Rise and Fall of the Teachings of Jesus) and what also is found in the Quran (Q 5: 14), one can gather that the floundering ship of truth must be resurrected with a PURE form of truth. Otherwise, bringing one’s corrupted ‘offerings’ needs no PURE LANGUAGE or TRUTH to be sent down from the heavens when corruption will suffice or trump REALITY and that the ONE LORD will accept any old trash or falsehoods created by man to be thrown up to honor HIM!

It must be admitted that even a slow minded worshiper of any religion would be completely foolish as to confront the ONE GOD by proclaiming that HIS GIFT of a PURE LANGUAGE is foolish, misplaced or erroneous IF THAT PERSON HAS ANY HOPE OF A SUCCESSFUL FUTURE AFTERLIFE.

6. Some people are wailing about how these times are the total end of time. Is it really? After throwing out the tomfoolery of the Mayan Calendar interpretations and other such fanciful junk, one can start looking at what the records actually do say. Of course this subject is too complicated and is spread over a very large area in my books and articles as befitting something not very easy to put together.

The Six Ages of Man theory started in book # 3 (The Real Holy Grail…) and being somewhat completed in book # 4 (He is Not My Ancestor) gives a good picture of the ‘Messianic Age’ to come. That and article # 8 (The Law of Grace and the Law of Mercy) develops an idea of a paradise on Earth before another age comes about and then will come the destruction of the world.

Fortunately, the reader does not have to spend money on getting at all of these topics as they are provided free of charge as downloads that can be shared, discussed over singly or in groups or just plain ignored.

7. Less than three decades left of this sorry and sad age? Can we be sure of this? We can be practically certain of this on several fronts. For one thing, one could read the articles # 31 (‘Why Me? The Time is Nigh’) and # 32 (‘Who are the Gog and the Magog…’). There is also common sense. A look at Palestine and the war of terror that rages every so often gives us a clue to the situation. So far the Israelis are content to come with a big, mechanized, highly advanced army against pistol toting, rock throwing Palestinians. But that won’t last forever.

In my opinion, the Jews of Israel had their LAST CHANCE to avert disaster from themselves at the Camp David Accords. Here, the tide could have been turned in their favor by looking upon the Palestinians as fellow human beings and fellow journeyers (BROTHERS) in truth.

However, they decided to play a gamble and to isolate Egypt (the main power house of the Arab world) by taking them out of the equation of any other possible war which would then give them self confidence in their own overall security. After all with this peace agreement signed and sealed, who was now going to attack them except stone-throwing Palestinians?

Secondly, the Israelis could now go about their business of a well-thought out plan of land grabbing and stifling the Palestinian life-blood slowly by slowly as no one would be around to stop them. Instead, they had several countries that were on hand (the United States and some European countries) to actually give them moral and financial support especially the so-called super conservatives and the moral majority religious groups.

This land grabbing plan is very similar and done with the same morals as the robbing of Indian lands in America that occurred long ago. The Israelis felt secure but things don’t always turn out the way we want them to. Hence, due to the horrendous pressures put on the Palestinians by the perverted Israelis, several uprisings or Intifadas occurred.

15 years ago, the Palestinians could fire rockets onto nearby Israeli farmland and perhaps kill a few farm animals. In 2012, however, their rockets became much more sophisticated and accurate while being able to carry a heavier payload. 20 years from now one can imagine the advances to their rockets in range, accuracy and carrying capacity not to mention the possibility of being able to carry a dirty bomb resulting in massive civilian deaths. Well, that just ain’t going to happen!

These rockets need not be ‘snuck in’ from tunnels but will be able to be homemade as the technology will already be there to do this. But the leading bullyboys will NOT permit Israel to suffer and it is a sure thing that Israel will NOT willingly face its legions of ‘ghosts’ who the Israelis, in their paranoiac minds, will take as the ultimate shame of being unmasked and shown up as the greedy people that they are if they give in to real justice, honesty and truth.

With certain countries banning together to ‘guarantee’ Israeli survival which translates into unfairness and injustice to the Muslim and Christian populations of Palestine, Israel still has never felt safe from death and humiliation (truly due to their legions of ghosts or skeletons in the closet) and therefore their actions are quite understandable even when they are quite vile and totally paranoiac (due to their fear of past behavior).

Things of course can’t stay the way they are forever and something has to give before a nuclear war starts. Well that just ain’t going to happen! Since we don’t see this in prophecy (nuclear war), the only other thing is to assume that the Palestinians will have to be removed from their lands. About this we have a hadith. But then, when things seem so desperate and so gloomy, the end of the Israelis will come about as was prophesied by the Prophet (pbh) himself.

Now another area of concern has visited the world. That area is the growing awareness of what is called ‘Global Terrorism’. Finally, the world seems to have gotten off somewhat of the notion of ‘Islamic Terrorism’ and is now willing to concede that terrorism is widespread throughout the world and will continue to be so especially in stringent financial times and when various psychotic sicknesses are increasing.

The Arabian Peninsula has coupled itself with the West to combat various possible aggressive elements from the various growing terrorist elements and from the dangers that will arise from the EAST. One of these elements comes from religious fanatics who try to attack other ‘sects or religious denominations’. Growing anger at being attacked and ‘memories’ that do not forget can lead to massive killings in the future when the ‘lights’ of the world grow dim.

The only thing to do which may or may not prove helpful would be to engage in HONEST DIALOG rather than PRETEND DIALOG. For example, the following hadith shows something about the quality of Prophet Muhammad (pbh).

Abu Dharr al-Ghifari told that he asked ALLAH’s Messenger (pbh) how he knew he was a prophet so that he was quite sure of it, and that he replied, “Two angels came to me, Abu Dharr, when I was at a place in the valley of Mecca, one alighting on the earth and the other remaining between heaven and earth. One of them asked the other if this was the man. This was done and I was the heavier. He told him to weigh me against ten men, and when this was done I outweighed them. He then told him to weigh me against a hundred men, and when this was done I outweighed them. He then told him to weigh me against a thousand men, and when this was done I outweighed them; and it seemed to me as if I were looking at them being scattered over me because of the lightness of the scale. Then one said to the other that if he were to weigh me against {all of} my people I would outweigh them.”   (Hadith transmitted by Darimi)

What does this imply? Quite simply it implies that honest Muslim worshipers, when understanding this hadith, refuse to go overboard in the practices of worship and as a result STILL RESERVE THEIR 100% WORSHIP FOR THE ONE AND ONLY ONE WHO DESERVES WORSHIP AND THAT IS ALLAH!

Man in true worship, worships the GREATER not the lesser. Otherwise, true worship wouldn’t make any sense. Therefore, no named Companion of the Prophet (pbh), no named Caliph, or no name including Husain or Hassan (ALLAH be pleased with them both) are to be put over the Prophet (pbh) either in word, deed, action or holiday celebration! The true Muslim does NOT strive to even come close to idolatry and if a person or people choose to whoop it up by claiming certain causes or reasons, then he or she will be moving closer to idolatry because he has openly invented something not approved of in real religion.

A further discussion on this topic can be revealing when one considers how Satin got the people of Noah (pbh) to ‘celebrate’ certain good people of old. By stages did Satan get the people of Noah (pbh) out, until his deceptions had them building statues of those people. Therefore, it is best to be truly Monotheistic and go back to original Islam but that is NOT to be until THE MESSIAH is given reign of his blessed kingdom on Earth.

Unfortunately, this world is becoming more and more fractionalized as time goes on and we are seeing this in several forms. The breakup of morals is one form. Another form is the separation of peoples that formerly lived under one banner like the Sudanese example. Finally, there is the ‘freewheeling’ invention of multiple religious sects as people tend to go their own ways in independent thought.

*Biblical scholarship breakthroughs have led to the rejection of biblical literalism by anyone who can actually read the Bible with understanding. A book by David R. Montgomery entitled, ‘The RocksDon’t Lie: a Geologist Investigates Noah’s Flood’ would be a good help to those who are still afraid to use logic and common sense in studying their faith.

**Jihad in the Way of ALLAH is a very comprehensive term which expresses much more than ordinary fighting with weapons. Jihad applies to all the efforts which are done in order to degrade and undercut actions and words of unbelief while at the same time exalting the WORD of ALLAH.

It also is a means (which has been much abused thus tarnishing real Islam) to establish an Islamic System of life especially the freedom to live this life by individuals who desire to practice the same. For example, Lot (pbh) and most of his family and some who actually believed maintained an aura of Jihad to those who would listen. He made his Jihad through practice and explanation rather than the sword. Historically we know that the vast majority of the citizenry refused his wisdom and therefore brought down the Curse on their heads (Sodom and Gomorrah)!

Anas ibn Malik said, “The Prophet (pbh) was asked, ‘O Messenger of ALLAH (what will happen) when we stop enjoining good and forbidding evil?’ He (pbh) said, “When what happened to the Israelites happens among you {Muslims}, when fornication becomes widespread among your leaders, {when} knowledge is in the hands of the lowest of you, and power passes into the hands of the least of you.”       (Ibn Majah)
