One of the clear signs offered up in the New Testament concerning Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) comes from the following:

Then he {Jesus} said to them, “These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning me.”

And he opened their understanding, that they might {finally and truthfully} comprehend the Scriptures.

Then he said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer {for a body (soul) was chosen by your GOD to step up and be a SIGN unto mankind (as is described in the Book of Hebrews Chapter 10 verses 4-9)} and to rise from the dead the third day,

The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and (for to) be crucified, and on the third day rise again.'”

And {now} you are witnesses of these {miraculous} things.

Behold, I send the Promise of my FATHER upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power {SPECIAL GIFTS FOR THIS UMMAH – like healing powers, speaking in tongues, etc.} from on HIGH.”

And he led them out as far as Bethany, and he lifted up his hands and blessed them {so that they would receive guidance and strength from Heaven and be able to be factual witnesses to the truth}.   Luke (24:44-50)

What is to be seen here is that the phrase ‘while I was still with you’ would ‘normally be negated’ because Jesus (pbh) IS STILL WITH THEM! And Jesus is nobody’s fool talking with marbles in his mouth.

However, it is different now due to the fact that this is a ‘new’ Jesus who must have been cleared of the slander* labeled against him while he was taken up and returned and who must be a man in a different set of circumstances such that he is a ‘paradise man’ not to be strictly compared to the Earth-type environment man meaning the regular run-of-the-mill often stumbling son of Adam who can’t be taken up to heaven at this time in body and soul.

The Earth-type environment man must die and be buried but this will not happen to Jesus (pbh) at this time because he will rise from the dead (those people who die and be buried). However, when he comes back as himself again (the Second Coming) and while being only a man, he will have to be like all others and be buried because that is a human trait and he is totally human.

{*Behold! ALLAH said: “O Jesus! I will take you and raise you to MYSELF and clear you (of the falsehoods {and slander}) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow you superior to those who reject faith, to the Day of Resurrection: Then shall all of you return unto ME, and I will judge between you of the matters wherein you dispute.”  Quran (3:55)}

Religion is a personal thing and not something to be brandied about as a whip to beat people! Indeed! One must strive to appeal to the rational intellect, to the very soul one is addressing concerning the appropriateness/benefits/deeply future rewarding trust man can muster in bringing some sense into a cynical world!!!!!!!

Too often people speak about being ‘Christian’, ‘Jew’ or ‘Muslim’ without the thought of what those words really mean. Words like these are bandied about to gather support for usually corrupt ideas and manipulative purposes. Case in point, the call for Poland to reject migrants being shunted to their boarders by an ugly regime (Belarus).

These migrants are NOT, according to some small hearted and small minded people, Christians. That may be but call to mind Jesus’ words vs their words and one can see a huge contrast. So, apparently these ignorant and small-hearted people hope to manipulate crowds who are largely ignorant about the words of Jesus (pbh). Not only ignorant but highly corrupt in their own souls.

For example, one can’t fool a competent, professional chemical analyzer into believing that what he assays as worthless gold-like pyrite is really gold and that he should deliver the cash to his shifty customer just because he plunked down a sample of what is really worthless ore (pyrite). But an unskilled, non-professional eager to swallow the proverbial hook, line and sinker could easily be duped due to his over eagerness to quickly get rich.

So the ‘rich’ road to Paradise as is reported in the Gospel of Matthew is not through false practices or ingratiating or showy behavior according to Jesus (pbh):

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.

Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.  Matthew (7:13-14)

That is nothing new for this world as religion, like any other product people have brought forward, has its shills, con-artists and devils who enjoy manipulating the weak of mind and the smallness of heart. Or one can say the blind leading the blind or birds of a feather flock together.

Yet this behavior is somehow intertwined with each affected individual as a collective component which is beyond the full comprehension of the mind of man. To combat this, man must learn and practice, for example, words that soften the heart and believe in those things especially if they come from an approved source.

How can an intelligent being strive for something ‘heavenly’ and yet remain in the darkness about such things? Simply by listening to his corrupt ego and imagining that GOD is only around when that sentient being needs or wants HIM, can some people be hoodwinked into believing that they are someone special in the ‘Eyes of GOD’ or that they are on the right path.

HE (GOD) will say: “enter you in the company of the peoples who passed away before you, men and Jinns into the Fire. Every time a new people enters it curses its sister-people (that went before) until they follow each other all into the Fire. Says the last about the first: “Our LORD! It is these that misled us {originally}: so give them a double penalty in the Fire.” HE will say: “doubled for all {of you}“: but this you do not understand {at this time}.

Then the first will say to the last: “See then! NO advantage have you over us; so taste you of the penalty for all that you {yourselves} did!”

To those who reject OUR SIGNS and treat them with ARROGANCE {as if they don’t matter although they have been warned and it is too much above their earthly dignity to spend the time engrossed in this pursuit} no opening will there be of the gates of Heaven nor will they enter the Garden until the camel can pass through the eye of the needle: such is OUR reward for those in sin.

For them there is HELL as a couch (below) and folds and folds of covering above: such is OUR requital of those who do wrong.

But those who {actually} believe and {and actually strive to} work righteousness, NO burden do WE place on any soul but that which it can bear. They will be {the successful} companions of the Garden therein to dwell (forever). Quran (7:38-42)

So, it is up to the individual effort to inspire others and also get inspired (not being bombastic) concerning one’s fellow human being. This takes practice and guidance and guidance comes from learning ‘words of wisdom’ from an approved source and not from some ignorant rabble-rouser whose heart is geared for self-aggrandizement only.

The Companions of the Garden {Paradise} will call out to the Companions of the Fire: “We have indeed found the Promises of our LORD to us as being true: have you also found your LORD’s Promises true?” They shall say “yes”; but a crier shall proclaim between them: “the CURSE of GOD is on the wrong- doers;

{These miscreants are} those who would hinder (men) from the path of ALLAH and {who also} would seek in it something crooked {especially for a financial gain}: they were those who {by their actions} denied the Hereafter.”              Quran (7:44-45)

So, whether one is a Jew, Christian or Muslim (writing about the Abrahamic Religions) it is a wise individual who invests his/her time in learning true beliefs as in worshiping ONE GOD ONLY WHO HAS NO PARTNERS, duties owed to the human race as well as nature and being open to a personal responsibility to go on the journey to seek out a behavior pattern that would be blessed by the ALMIGHTY HIMSELF. That about sums up religion in today’s precarious and often contradictory world.

Studying religion is not as easy as it looks! It seems like there are as many opinions on religion as there are people. Religion, however, does teach mankind to be careful and not careless and that is sound advice in any context and in any area.

The unravelling of certain so-called mysteries is even found in the Book of Daniel in the Old Testament as presumably the ‘growth of mankind’, coming towards the End Times, gets a well-deserved push.

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge {of various kinds} shall increase.”  Daniel (12:4)

Common sense and common unity must ‘win through the day’ if man is to be successful. That is for the ‘striving man’ to contemplate and put into action. Unfortunately many of us do not see the connecting lines of relationships going all the way back to the ‘Big Bang’.

The cyclical nature of the universe is outstanding. Birth and death of stars and what they tend to create and what the ‘they’ tend to go back to is amazing in itself. But there are gradations mixed in there. Look at the angels. They are of varying types with varying types of stature from the awesomely powerful to the run-of-the-mill servant.

It is no accident that Jesus (pbh) when he returns shall die his intended death as a human because he is only a human – elevated to great heights – but still only human. And it makes sense that as in the beginning (somehow) that these two (Muhammad and the Christ-soul) started off together in some way and end up being raised up together thus completing a ‘cycle’.

We learn from Islam in hadith format that:

Abu Hurairah said: “I heard ALLAH’s Messenger (pbh) saying: “I am the closest of people to the Son of Mary. The prophets are paternal brothers. And there has been no prophet between me and him (Jesus).”  (Bukhari)

Even in this proximity as you may recall, as it was stated in the Dead Sea Scrolls, that the High Priest (the Messiah) stands beside the ‘king’ who is sitting at the head of the Table (as the head of the prophets in symbolism) such that there is none between him (the king – Muhammad (pbh) and the High Priest).

Also there is a tradition stating that when Jesus (pbh) finally dies, he will be buried in the empty space left for him in a very small enclosed area in Medina containing the bodies of Prophet Muhammad (pbh) and the two of the greatest of non-prophets that have ever lived: Abu Bakr and ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab thus making for a ‘Rich habitat’ in what is collectively called the area of soul consciousness.

This tradition is said not to be strong. However, scripture in the form of Isaiah Chapter 53 verse 9 tends to uphold this viewpoint as there can be no greater honor than to be placed among such ‘SPIRITUAL WEALTH AND GREATNESS’ AS THOSE CHOICE AND EXHAULTED HUMAN BEINGS!

Abdullah b. Salam {the great former Jewish Rabbi to his people in Medina} said the description of Moses is written in the Torah and also that Jesus son of Mary will be buried along with him (Muhammad). Abu Maudud said that a place for a grave has remained in the house (where Muhammad is buried).”                             (Tirmidhi transmitted it.)

Abdullah b. ‘Amr reported ALLAH’s Messenger as saying, “Jesus the son of Mary will descend to the earth, will marry, have children and remain forty-five years, after which he will die and be buried along with me in my grave. Then Jesus the son of Mary and I shall arise from one grave between Abu Bakr and ‘Umar.”              (Ibn al-Jauzi transmitted it in Kitab al-wafa)

And as it is appointed unto men once to die {only when their term of appointment ends}, but after this {comes} the Judgment.  Hebrews (9: 27)

And his {Jesus’} grave {his body/life} was assigned with the wicked {he did not come to live among the rich and influential but the poor and ignorant in need of his council/instruction}, yet he was buried with the RICH at his death {why should he come into the world again after he returns because Judgment or the rising up will have been decreed and Prophet Muhammad is the FIANL PROPHET sent to the world!}, because {as a reward for his labors as} he had done no violence, nor was there any deceit in his mouth.  Isaiah (53:9)

So as he (Muhammad) was first, he became last and the relationship between him and the Christ-soul is best left alone because we do not have that approval to go beyond those understandings that can be made clear. What can be made clear are the few connections that are obvious when strung together to make some form of sense which tries to eliminate the ‘voodoo’ put into religion by those vile worshipers of other than the ONE GOD!!!

Christ has redeemed us {by his overcoming the steps of true prophethood and perfecting them such that he must perfect the 46 ways to true prophethood in order to complete his job as the true and real Messiah for the Believers} from the curse of the Law**, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree***)”,

That the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles {non-Jews} in Christ Jesus, {such} that we might receive the promise of the Spirit {of truth who will bring the purified WAY – Prophet Muhammad (pbh)} through faith.

Brethren, I speak in the manner of men {which the careless will not understand or profit therein}: Though it is only a man’s covenant {concerning faith and eventual prosperity to enter Paradise}, yet if it is confirmed {if it be made so by the ONE GOD}, no one {can} annul(s) or add(s) to it {it goes down as a certainty we can trust and believe in}.

Now to Abraham and his Seed {Isaac and Ishmael – to Jews and Gentiles alike} were the promises made {for they are going to carry on and be that line through which true prophecy will come to the world}. HE {GOD} does not say, “And to seeds,” {being other than through the Abrahamic Line} as of many, but as of one {passage only through the Abrahamic line meaning Monotheism}, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ {meaning for this particular Ummah (religious branch) who will win through and get the honor to being that one, that SIGN who will unlock the door to emit the Spirit of truth to come and teach and renew truth unto you according to John (16:7-11, 13 and 14) in that he will be sent to declare the Right Way. Galatians (3:13-16) Words accredited to Paul

Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage {for the coming of Judgment} that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Spirit of truth will not come to you; but if I depart, I  {GOD} will send him to you.

And when he has come, he will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

Regarding sin, because they do not {really} believe in me;

Of righteousness, because I go to my FATHER, and you will see me no more;

Of Judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged {as I have overcome the world in my quest for perfection and put my foot on his (Satan’s neck as was the prophecy given to Adam and what he would eventually do (Genesis 3:15)}.

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears {by way of Revelation} he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that will come to pass in the future {Judgment and of Heaven and Hell}.

He shall glorify {honor} me: for he shall receive of mine {Prophethood!}, and shall shew it {demonstrate his credentials} unto you.  John (16:7-11, 13 and 14)}

{**The CURSE OF THE LAW is ‘that you shall not succeed in ‘resting’ in your grave until you become perfect (for NO SIN CAN ENTER HEAVEN) and then when you become sinless (which of and by yourselves you CAN’T DO) you will be allowed to wait in the Barzakh until the Day you shall be raised but now you are redeemed from this ‘continuous, and for most of us, infinite curse’ {constant rebirth} as a MERCY from your ONE LORD such that when HE shall send HIS PROPHET into the world, HIS PROPHET will signal the TRUE FAITH and be as a SIGN that the DAY OF JUDGMENT DRAWS VERY CLOSE}.

{***It is true that ‘cursed’ is everyone that hangs on a tree IF AND ONLY IF, HE/SHE IS TRULY GUILTY OF HEINIOUS CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY. False hangings cannot apply here or else innocent people would be cursed by GOD for being actually innocent. So, in retrospect it looks like this saying was artificially put in Paul’s writings to infer that Jesus became a cursed thing for us rather than a true and wonderful SIGN for us. This is nothing but scripture manipulation which is discussed in the Quran.

Instead of saying a ‘cursed thing for us’ say rather that he, the Christ-soul, took on that challenge to be a SIGN unto mankind and perfect those 46 parts to prophecy thereby opening the way for THAT PROPHET (Prophet Muhammad) to enter into the world.

Again why the inclusion of these marks { } in my writings? Paul is not here to defend himself! His teachings and his style were well known by GOD HIMSELF! It is absolutely true that difficult concepts/ideas need exploration and expansion to be adequately absorbed taking in other passages and harmonizing them!

Born again-type Christians tend not to do this but tend to take random passages from their scripture out of context. And unfortunately that does not stop with just the so-called born again Christians. Every known religion is hindered by these corrupters of truth****!

{****Abu Sa’id al-Khudri reported ALLAH’s Messenger (pbh) as saying:

“You would tread the same path as was trodden by those before you inch by inch and step by step so much so that if they had entered into the hole of the lizard, you would follow them in this also.” We said: “ALLAH’s Messenger, do you mean Jews and Christians (by your words concerning) those before you”? He said: “Who else” (than those two religious groups)?(Muslim)


Such that even when the teachers of scripture are present, people can often be dull-witted due to the fact that they can’t really comprehend what is being taught. We know this from experience but in reality it is found in the New Testament when Paul and the writer of the Book of Hebrews ACTUALLY COMPLAIN THAT THEIR AUDIENCE HAS BECOME DULL WITTED AND NEEDS TO HAVE THE TEACHING SLOWED DOWN BY FEEDING THEM MILK RATHER THAN MEAT BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT READY TO RECEIVE THE TRUTH!!!

We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain, because you are dull of hearing.

For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of GOD; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.  Hebrews (5:11-12)

I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; 1Corinthians (3:2) Accredited to Paul

The similitude of Jesus before ALLAH is as that of Adam; HE created him from dust; then said to him: “Be”: and he was.

The Truth (comes) from your LORD alone; so be not of those who doubt.                       Q (3: 59-60)

Al-‘Irbad b. Sariya reported ALLAH’s Messenger as saying, “I was inscribed in ALLAH’s presence as the seal of the prophets when Adam was prone in his basic substance. I shall inform you about the beginning of my career: it was the petition of Abraham, the Good Tidings by Jesus, and the vision my mother saw when she gave birth to me and a light issued to her from which the castles of Syria shone for her.” (It is transmitted in Sharh as-sunna, and Ahmad transmitted it on the authority of Abu Umama from “I shall inform you … to the end.)

How much more should the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot {lengthy purification ritual to become perfect after the nominal perfection he already achieved such that he must again go forth on that journey as GOD has chosen for him so as to reach that most honorable station of being THE MESSIAH!} to GOD, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the Living GOD {WHO NEVER DIES}?   Hebrews (9: 14)

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of ALLAH (pbh) said, “When the end of time approaches, the dream of a believer can hardly be false. The dream of a believer is one of forty-six parts of prophecy***** and whatever is from prophecy cannot be false.”  (Bukhari)

Therefore in this thinking the prophets cannot be false in either their assignments or in their belief system. And being a prophet is the ultimate stage in human manifestation such that all prophets have a common bond with each other in the establishment of truth and true worship owed to the CREATOR LORD.

{*****It is thought, at least from this side, that if one gives a recorded grade to the prophets in these forty-six parts of prophecy that they would receive an A grade. That seems logical. As for the Christ-soul, he must take on the world or conditions and make for each part an A+ grade.

In other words, he is being called the Messiah or Master or Inheritor of excellence. Such that it became his duty to be the one to pass the baton or introduce that exalted soul, his brother prophet, Muhammad (pbh).

What do we make of this? For the better understanding is what we want to reach. Not the idea that this man Jesus (pbh) was lucky or that he is something out of the ordinary, or that he somehow becomes a self-styled deity of sorts. The pattern has been laid down from the beginning, the PLAN, the PERFECT PLAN of the ONE GOD cannot be doubted!

If we don’t see it then we are like the children in grade one who do not understand Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. Because those youths don’t understand it, does not make the Theory false!

So, the perfect man, the man born without the normal way of birth, the one who came into the world able to speak and born a prophet even though it appeared like he didn’t earn it through any work on his part, born without sin and remaining sinless gives credit to whom?

He certainly did not credit himself!!! Rather he proclaimed to those who would listen that of and by himself, he was actually nothing! He proclaimed that his life, his very existence as well as his miracles occurred due to the WILL and ACT OF GOD.

I can of {and by} myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and my judgment is true, because I do not seek my own will {or try to go my own way} but {I only seek} the will of the FATHER who sent me.  John (5:30)}

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of ALLAH (pbh) said, “Verily, the parable of myself and the {other} Prophets before me is that of a man who built a house, perfected it, and beautified it, except for the place of one brick at its cornerstone. The people walk around it and are amazed by it, and they say: Why is this brick not placed? Thus, I am that brick and I am the seal {last} of the Prophets.”   (Bukhari)

Those who strive against OUR SIGNS, to frustrate them, will be given over into Chastisement. Q (34: 38)

The next day John {John the Baptist – pbh} saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The lamb of GOD who takes away the sin of the world!

This is he {Jesus} of whom I said, ‘AFTER me comes a man who is preferred {by the ONE GOD} BEFORE me, for he was before me {even though I am older than he is in age by about 6 months, I am not elevated above him in rank}.’                                     John (1:29-30)

Truly according to my writings, Jesus (pbh) is indeed! The lamb of GOD who takes away the sin****** of the world as a SIGN or SIGNAL to the events to come.

{******The ‘sin of the world’ is represented in the Quran Chapter 35 verse 72 as (We did indeed offer the Trust to the Heavens and the Earth and the Mountains; but they refused to undertake it, being afraid thereof: but mankind undertook it. He {the human being} was indeed unjust and foolish {to himself!}.                             Quran (33:72).

One can best understand this from the verse proclaiming man as likened to a ‘god’ (vicegerent) in the Old Testament and New Testament (‘in that HE (GOD) called them ‘gods’ to whom the WORD came’ (John (10:34-35) and Psalm 82) and some obscure so-called knowledge gleaned from Israeliat and some Islamic sources of the people who existed before Adam who walked upon the face of the Earth.

However, this needs not be known as it would lead many people down a ‘rabbit hole’. And what is past is past. So, what is it going to profit mankind to try and understand something he can’t fully grasp or learn from?

Since his beginnings as ‘our’ adam (not THE ADAM), so very long ago and beyond the knowledge of recorded history and being a helpful and guiding light unto those that would listen and be not full of arrogance, while being appointed by his GOD to be that one, by HIS PERMISSION ONLY, to unlock the door to allow GOD’s PROPHET (pbh) to enter with THAT PURE WORD (the QURAN) and the FINAL CHAPTER IN RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION.

So understand those things in that light as one would understand that although Jesus was not put on the wooden cross to suffer, he indeed was crucified in the flesh and rose up AGAIN on the third day. And this for a purpose!

Now do you see the danger of what is ‘within’ man himself as he so interprets these things?!!!!!

A man who desires to see corruption is one who is corrupt in self and one who desires to see truth is one who pursues this truth in self. And the truth is that GOD is ONE WHO has no partners and has no needs. HE is INDEPENDENT and ABSOLUTE. So it is better for mankind to refrain from proclaiming that somehow HE has a son.

You have met this {particular} fate because you rejoiced on the earth in things OTHER THAN THE TRUTH, and then EXULTED {REVELED} in it.”   Q (40:75) See also 2 Thessalonians (2:10-12)

They say {like the disbelievers of old}: “(GOD) MOST GRACIOUS has begotten a son {an offspring (another god)}!”

Indeed you have put forth a thing most monstrous!

At it the skies are ready to burst, the earth to split asunder, and the mountains to fall down in utter ruin,

That they should invoke a son for (ALLAH) MOST GRACIOUS.

For it is not in harmony with the MAJESTY of (ALLAH) MOST GRACIOUS that HE should beget a son.

Not one of the beings in the heavens and the earth {without exception} but must come to (ALLAH) MOST GRACIOUS as a servant.

HE does take an account of them (all), and has numbered them (all) exactly.

And every one of them will come to HIM singly on the Day of Judgment.

On those who believe and work deeds of righteousness, THE MOST GRACIOUS will bestow HIS LOVE.  Quran (19:88-96)
