What is the icing on the cake as it applies to the Believers and is well documented in the Holy Books? Simply put in non-highfalutin terms:

One must go through grade school before entering high school and complete high school before entering college and complete a Master’s Degree before taking on a PhD degree. All things in their due season!

With this in mind, we are presented with the individual known as the Christ-soul as he, with ALLAH’s Permission, overcame all things ‘in due season’ in order to open the door for a special human being called GOD’s Prophet!

Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage {the people of faith} that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper {the Spirit of truth} will not come to you; but if I depart, I {GOD} will send him to you.  John (16:7)

This is an acknowledgement from Jesus (pbh), for anyone who can read it, that his formal ‘struggles’ in bringing the truth to mankind is over and that it is his honor to open the gateway for the next stage of human advancement such that the finalization of the WAY can begin of which he (Jesus) will be given a kingdom to claim to present to the CREATOR LORD.

And other sheep I have which are NOT of this {current/Jewish} fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear my voice; and there will be {in this kingdom given to me} one flock and one shepherd {and hence, one religion/belief system}.                  John (10:16)

Now these things are not debatable as they are presented in these works for they show the connectivity as presented in Quranic verse (4:136) as to having the sanctified records agreeing with each other when they are understood that is:

O you who believe! Believe in ALLAH and HIS Messenger {Muhammad}, and the scripture which HE has sent to HIS Messenger {Muhammad} and the scripture which HE sent to those before (him). Any who deny ALLAH, HIS Angels, HIS Books, HIS Messengers, and the Day of Judgment, has gone far, far astray. Quran (4:136)

Therefore one can find this sacred connectivity to truth from the Old Testament, New Testament, Quran and hadith materials as is shown in these works. So, with the proper understanding of FAITH, let those who rejoice in the truth, rejoice!

And there is none of the People of the Book but MUST believe in him (Jesus) {as to his reality} before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them {those who perpetuated lies against ALLAH};   Quran (4:159)

That WAY is Al-ISLAM as preordained before the creation of the Earth and the one who was destined to enter that doorway opened by the Christ-soul was Prophet Muhammad (pbh). Prophet Muhammad (pbh) cannot come before his time and so Jesus (pbh) had to purify himself as ALLAH had willed so as to be that opener for ALLAH’s Prophet.

So, that is the mystical answer to the strange words of Jesus (pbh) when he stated that ‘he’ (the Spirit of truth) will not come, if Jesus (pbh) does not fulfill his obligations or duties in what ALLAH has charged him with. In other words, Jesus is saying that he must complete his mission that was given to him to be that ‘sacrifice’ or representative human being (SIGN) who, under ALLAH’s tutelage, conquered all things.

And he, the Christ-soul, cannot enjoy the status of being that Messiah until he gave up of himself as to be put under the shackles of what his LORD put him under and kept him from falling into corruption for he himself stated at one time which has been recorded for all of posterity to see:

When she {the wife of the Aziz} heard of their malicious gossip {done at her expense}, she sent for them and prepared a banquet for them: she gave each of them a knife: and she said (to Joseph), “Come out before them.” When they saw him, they did extol him, and (in their amazement) cut their hands: they said, “ALLAH preserve us! No mortal is this! This is none other than a noble angel!”

She said: “There before you is the man about whom you did blame me! I did seek to seduce him from his (true) self but he did firmly save himself guiltless!….and now {in my burning passion}, if he does not do my bidding, he shall certainly be cast into prison, and (what is more) be of the company of the vilest!”

He {Joseph} said: “O my LORD! The prison is more to my liking than that to which they invite me: Unless YOU turn away their snare from me, I should (in my youthful folly) feel inclined towards them and join the ranks of the ignorant.”

So his LORD hearkened to him (in his prayer), and turned their snare away from him: Verily HE hears and knows (all things).  Quran (12:31-34)

The story of Yusef (pbh), the noblest of souls according to Muhammad (pbh), shows just how he overcame adversity after adversity by being patient and in sincerely and humbly petitioning his CREATOR LORD for the help needed to ‘carry through’ to the end. And this is no accident that the most beautiful of stories is the story of Yusef found in chapter 12 of the Quran.

And behold! Even that chapter’s number is sufficiently important and not just by accident! Oh! How man is at a loss without his LORD!!!

And like a pyramid, he would go forth and build upon these successes as he continued his journey up the steps of a ladder orchestrated for him by his LORD. And as a ‘bruised’ sapling he will eventually emerge as a conquering hero victorious because he put his trust in ALLAH:

Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; HE has put him to grief: when YOU shall make his soul {the Christ-soul} an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, HE shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand {as to his GOD-given kingdom}.  Isaiah (53:10)

Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in ALLAH has grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, which never breaks. And ALLAH hears and knows all things.  Quran (2:256)
