Thank You Paul (Revised)

The use of the symbols { } are for clarification purposes only!

The New Testament is composed of a lot of ‘teaching materials’ (letters/epistles) written to instruct the ‘new’ believers in the philosophy of their sect as it applies to THE SIGN given to mankind. Naturally, these materials have many expandable points that need to be elucidated so as to bring about a fuller understanding on ‘how did they (followers of Jesus) get to this point’!

When the students of this ‘religion’ don’t get it as in {(Hebrews (5:11)-Of whom {the Christ-soul} we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered {hard to be understood}, seeing you are dull of hearing-)}, one can sense the frustration building.

The ‘teachers’ of this doctrine have just crossed over into a new threshold trying to lay a foundation based on what can be called ‘supernatural verses’ (Mutashabihat verses) that eventually would bring the house down and hence, the need for the Spirit of truth to come to revive the CORRECT WAY.

So, ironically the New Testament contains its own program for the destruction of the religion. How else can one explain the need for another prophet to ‘right the ship of Faith’ again so soon after the Ascension of Jesus to the heavens!

This then becomes a separation of souls from those who go on to be like bees and those who turn out like flies: Bees are attracted to the scent of sweet smelling pollen whereas flies are attracted to the raunchy sent of dung. And once again GOD’s PLAN is MIGHTY beyond compare!

When one goes back in time (to find the interconnected dimensions of various religions) to the era just before the birth of Jesus (pbh), the era of Jesus’ physical presence and the 5 or 6 decades after he was raised up to the heavens, one can get a better idea of this ‘new’ culture that eventually morphed into what is called Christianity.

The Jewish roots {Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian} for this new community started with the Jewish Messianic sect known as the Essenes who were eventually responsible for the care and maintenance of certain female vessels that would be responsible for the entrance of the ‘PROMISED ONE’ (the Messiah).

And mention in the Scripture Mary, when she withdrew from her people {normal daily life} to an eastern location*.

             {*This ‘eastern location’ is the Headquarters of the Essenes Sect of Jews at the place called Qumran which is also the place where the Dead Sea Scrolls were recovered!}

She (Mary the mother of Jesus) screened herself away from them, and WE sent to her OUR spirit, and He appeared to her as an immaculate human.

She said, “I take refuge from you in the Most Merciful, should you be righteous.”

He said, “I am only the messenger of your LORD, to give you the {news of a} gift of a pure son.”

She said, “How can I have a son, when no man has touched me, and I was never unchaste?”

He said, “Thus said your LORD, `It is easy for ME, and WE will make him a SIGN for {ALL} humanity {IF THEY WOULD BUT ACCEPT IT}, and a Mercy from US. It is a matter already decided.’“                Quran (19:16-21)

This is a very important point when discussing so-called Christianity as to the ‘Letters/Epistles today as to what it was to what it has become!

The Letters/Epistles found in the New Testament are literally teaching tools instructing the faithful in the belief that the Messiah came and will enter again. Like abridged notes they have to be expanded and explained with more personal depth as to the various points expressed or else some will come and make hash out of these instructions.

Without this proper guidance certain things may be construed improperly causing a lack of clarity concerning one Jesus of Nazareth the man and prophet to the lost sheep of Israel.

One way of approaching an understanding of Christianity today is to see who those people of the Dead Sea Scrolls were, what they believed and what their records show as compared to what the Epistles/Letters show. Their time has passed but it should give people an insight into the man we call Jesus the son of Mary (pbh).

The most glaring example from the Dead Sea Scrolls is the TIME RELATED STORY of the CHIEF PRIEST IN RELATIONSHIP TO THE ISLAMIC CONCEPT OF THE KINGDOM OF RIGHTEOUSNESS ON EARTH AND ITS AFTERMATH. Here, we give the scope of information contained in the Dead Sea Scrolls:

The Chief Priest is sitting on the right side of the KING and they are sitting at a table with other peoples who represent the prophets. Food is being served up but no one can eat of this food, NOT EVEN THE KING, until the Chief Priest blesses it! This is a TIME RELATED story found in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

ALLAH WILLING, here is the breakdown of this story: The FOOD are the souls of the human beings who followed the correct pathway. The people sitting around the Table are the prophets who according to hadiths have their own ‘PONDS’ where the BELIEVERS of that ‘BRANCH OF BELIEF’ will gather to drink from the LIFE GIVING WATERS.**

                   {**The following hadith has been classified as being weak in strength but has found support by some:

Tirmidhi narrated that Samurah said: The Messenger of ALLAH (pbh) said: “Every Prophet will have a cistern and they will be looking to see who has the largest number of followers coming to him, and I hope that I will have the largest number.” Every isnad of this hadith is weak (da’eef). However, a few scholars ruled that it is acceptable because it has so many isnads. ALLAH knows best of course!}

The Chief Priest is Jesus the Christ (pbh) and the KING is Muhammad (pbh) whose religion (WAY) is the CHOSEN BELIEF (OR COMPLETED WAY) FOR THE BELIEVERS.

The system of the two Paradises (first the paradise on Earth and then the final one in the heavens) cannot come about until the ANOINTING OF THE MESSIAH (IT OCCURRED AT HIS BEING BAPTIZED IN THE RIVER JORDAN) AND THE ENTRANCE OF THE LAST PROPHET to give THE WAY CHOSEN FOR THIS PARADISE – PROPHET MUHAMMAD (pbh).

So, until the ‘Final Sacrifice’ is given in the lifetime of Jesus (pbh), this system of division into ranks/at the Ponds of the prophets CANNOT HAPPEN EVEN IN FRONT OF THE KING BECAUSE THE CORRECT ORDER (of deliverance) MUST BE MAINTAINED.

In the New Testament we have ‘THREE’ spoken of as to a certain ORDER TO COME ABOUT:

And this is the testimony of John {The Baptist}, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?”

He confessed, he did not deny, but confessed, “I am NOT the Christ.”

And they asked him, “What then? Are you Eli′jah” {the prophesied precursor to heralding in the Messiah}? He said, “I am not {called that today}.” “Are you THE PROPHET {Isaiah Chapter 42/Acts Chapter 3***}?” And he answered, “No.” {He is neither called Elijah this day nor is he the Messiah and he is not THAT PROPHET that will come after the Messiah}              John (1:19-21)

            ***{and that HE {GOD} may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, whom heaven must receive until the time for establishing all that GOD spoke by the mouth of HIS holy prophets from of old.

Moses said, ‘The LORD GOD will raise up for you a prophet from your brethren {the Semitic line called Arab} as HE raised me up. You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you.

And it shall be that every soul that does not listen to THAT PROPHET shall be destroyed from the people.’

And all the prophets who have spoken, from Samuel and those who came afterwards, also proclaimed these days.

You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant which GOD gave to your fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your posterity {THE THREE ABRAHAMIC RELIGIONS} shall all the families {of the believing peoples} of the earth be blessed.

GOD, having raised up HIS servant {Jesus}, sent him to you first, {as to the Jews first if they would but listen} to bless you in turning every one of you from your wickedness.”                                                        Acts (3: 20-26)}

And this ‘Holy Priest’ or SIGN is after the ORDER of MELCHIZEDEK:

“And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of THE MOST HIGH GOD.” Genesis (14:18) – FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT.

“The LORD has sworn, and will not repent, you {THE EVENTUAL MESSIAH} are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.”    Psalm (110:4) – FROM THE BOOK OF DAVID IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.

“So also Christ glorified NOT himself to be made a high priest; but {IT WAS} HE {GOD} that said unto him, Thou are MY son {BELOVED SERVANT}, today have I begotten {ANOINTED} you. As HE said also in another place, you are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. Who in the days of his flesh {as adam}, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto HIM that was able to save him from death {because of his disobedience}, and was heard in that he feared {for his spiritual life}; Though he were a son, yet he learned obedience by the things which he suffered; And being made perfect {without sin}, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him HIM {GOD}; called of GOD a high priest after the order of Melchizedek. Of whom {the Christ-soul} we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered {hard to be understood}, seeing you are dull of hearing.”    Hebrews (5:5-11)

“For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife. Wherein GOD, willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of HIS counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for GOD to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the most high GOD, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem {now called Jerusalem}, which is, King of peace {and King of Jerusalem}; Without {apparent} father, without {apparent} mother, without {apparent} descent, having neither{apparent} beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the son {special one} of God; abides a priest continually. Now consider how great THIS MAN was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils. And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham: But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him {Abraham} that had the promises {of IMAMS coming from his seed}. And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better. And here men that die receive tithes; but there he received them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives. And as I may so say, Levi also, who receives tithes, payed tithes in Abraham. For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchizedek met him. If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchizedek, and not be called after the order of Aaron? For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law {the law of retribution declaring that for any sin there will be a reaction thus delaying for mankind the promise of THE DAY OF ACCOUNTABILITY AND HENCE PARADISE AND HELL-FIRE}. For he of whom these things are spoken pertains to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar. For it is {now} evident that our lord {and Master} sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spoke nothing concerning priesthood. And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchizedek there arises another priest, Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life. For HE {THE ONE GOD} testifies, you are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof. For the law {of and by itself WITHOUT the GRACE and MERCY from GOD} made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of A BETTER HOPE DID; by the which we draw close unto God. And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest: (For those priests were made without an oath; but this {MAN} with an oath by HIM {THE ONE GOD} that said unto him, The LORD swore and will not repent, you are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek:) By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament {SIGN FOR SALVATION}. And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: But THIS MAN, because he continues forever {HAS BEEN RAISED UP BY GOD HIMSELF AND CLEARED OF ALL STAINS AND FALSEHOODS THAT HAVE BEEN LABELED AGAINST him – Behold! ALLAH said: “O Jesus! I will take you and raise you to MYSELF and clear you (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow you {that way of True Monotheism} superior to those who reject faith, to the Day of Resurrection: Then shall you all return unto ME, and I will judge between you of the matters wherein you dispute. Quran (3:55,}, – has an unchangeable priesthood.” Hebrews 6:(16:7-24)

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death {in the physical body form starting from adam}, {NOW} crowned with glory and honor; that he {ONLY} by the GRACE AND MERCY OF GOD should taste death for every man {NOT meaning that mankind will not die a physical death}. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things {destined to the one holding that office of Messiah}, {THAT IS} in bringing many sons {FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS} unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings {AS EVERY MAN MUST BEAR HIS OWN CROSS INCLUDING JESUS IF THEY DESIRE TO FIND SALVATION – New Testament}****. . . Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood {covering their souls}, he also himself likewise took part of the same {became flesh and dwelt among us – Gospel of John (1:14)}; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death {that is to mislead souls so that they will go away from the truth causing spiritual death}, that is, the devil . . . For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him {when he entered life coming down from heaven into a physical body} the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren {humans in the flesh},***** that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to GOD, to make reconciliation {a peace offering – NOT a forgiver of sins} to end the continuous cycle of having to continue life without Judgment for all times to come} for the sins of the people.”                                                Hebrews (2:9-10, 14, 16-17)

                              {****THE REAL CRUCIFIXION: And he {Jesus} said to all, “IF any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.                   Luke (9:23)

And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh {as Jesus (the Christ-soul) crucified his flesh through GOD’s WILL} with its passions and desires.  Galatians (5:24)

For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the {ungodly} deeds of the body {by crucifying the self} you will live {and have eternal life}.

For all who are led by the Spirit of GOD are sons {those saved by} of GOD.            Romans (8:13-14)

                                {*****One can see from a statement made by the Prophet (pbh) that many men in the past were perfect but only a few women. THE POINT BEING that the Christ-soul that we are talking about could have rested until the Day of Judgment! – like what was said to prophet Daniel (12:13) – But go your way till the end; and you shall rest, and shall stand in your allotted place at the end of the days.”}

Of course he would NOT be entitled to Messianic status. But due to his ‘run again’ after his Melchizedek era as to starting over, he arose in rank, rank upon rank, to enter life as we know it in the flesh! All of this is part of ALLAH’s SUCCESSFUL PLAN! ALLAH KNOWS BEST!!!!!

Of this PLAN we can only know very little. However, it satisfies the religious ideological quest for knowledge while debunking any FOOLISH NOTION THAT GOD HAS ANY EQUAL OR EVEN A PARTNER!******

                {******In blasphemy indeed are those that say that ALLAH is Christ the son of Mary. Say: “Who then has the least power against ALLAH, if HIS WILL were to destroy Christ the son of Mary, his mother, and all, every one that is on the earth? For to ALLAH belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between. HE creates what HE pleases. For ALLAH HAS POWER OVER ALL THINGS.”  Quran (5:17)}

So, how difficult is it for the human being even if he/she was perfect to enter into ETERNAL LIFE?????

One must go to THE PROPHET for the answer and understand why it is a prerequisite to really understand the PURE QURAN!:

None of you will enter Paradise by virtue of his/her good deeds {alone}.” They said, “Not even you, O Messenger of ALLAH?” He said, “Not even me, unless ALLAH encompasses me with HIS MERCY and GRACE.”

This tells us one important thing and that is to LOVE (obey and follow) THE LORD of all things to the best of one’s ability and to try and to improve on that willingness by holding the ‘self’ accountable and knowledgeable in keeping HIM in our hearts and memory.

Unfortunately, as a species, we are accustomed to have over protective and primitive thoughts leading to the modern trend of ultra conservative populism and other foul, anti-christ like behaviors.

Many Evangelical Christians have a certain feeling about Jesus the Christ (pbh). He seems to be a concerned, overly caring deity-type person who fondly embraces humanity if they but accept him on the grounds of making him lord, god and savior!

However, according to the words of Jesus (pbh) that JUST ISN’T SO! So, it seems there is some kind of weird disconnect going on and that is explained in all three Abrahamic Scriptures each with its own style as was lightly touched on before in a previous article.

One can have THE BOOK right in front of one’s self and read it until the proverbial cows come home but if it is NOT applied correctly or if it is twisted by a selfish ego, then whatever a person thinks he or she gains will be totally useless.

THANK YOU PAUL and others:

but we preach Christ crucified, as a stumbling block to the Jews and folly to the Gentiles.   1Corinthians (1:23) – Paul

But the natural {earthy} man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are FOOLISHNESS unto him: neither can he know them, because they are {only} spiritually discerned.                     1Corinthians (2:14) – Paul

For the {REAL} message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.  1Corinthians (1:18) – Paul

and, “A stone of stumbling and a rock of offense.” They stumble because they {would continuously} disobey the Wordand to this they were appointed {for before they were born}. 1Peter (2:8) – Glaucus

YOU HAVE MET THIS FATE because you rejoiced on the earth in things OTHER than the truth, AND THEN EXULTED IN IT.”                           Quran (40:75)

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness {found} in them that perish; because they did not receive {believe in or fight for} the love of the truth that they might be saved.

AND FOR THIS CAUSE {contempt for GOD’s TRUTH} GOD shall send {upon} them strong delusion that they should believe {in} a lie {focus not on doing what is right – the real food for the soul}:

That they all might be damned who didn’t believe the truth but had pleasure in {took their comfort in doing other than the truthfull WAY} unrighteousness.    2 Thessalonians (2: 10-12) – Paul.

And he {Jesus} shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to BOTH the houses******* of Israel,for a gin and for a snare {also} to the inhabitants of Jerusalem…                                         Prophet Isaiah (8:14-15)

{*******Here we have both the Jews and Christians in prophecy who should TAKE WARNING!!!}

And base things of the world, and things which are despised, has GOD chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:   1Corinthians (1:28) – Paul

That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of ALLAH; but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, FOR OF A SURETY THEY KILLED HIM NOT:                              Quran (4:157)
