As usual when one finds the following symbols { } the meaning should be clear that these expressions are additions added by this author to make things more clear to the reader.

Where do we go from here? Only Allah can be totally certain. With all the political upheavals, socio-economic strains on society, grave injustices that are real and many that are not, a general feeling of being left behind and also the feeling of being double-crossed floating in the air, it seems only logical that as we approach the ‘later years’ a Caliphate will be eventually setup.

How ironic it is! However, the world is the world and that is that and this can translate into some very hair-raising episodes and horrendous practices fostered on the world body or parts of the general public.

The word ‘Islamist’ is used frequently in this world but its connotation is not a good one. How ironic it is that the Pure Islamist, Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) is going to return to usher in a NEW AGE and NEW WORLD ORDER. How strange indeed when one considers that the majority of the world would not permit an Islamist to reign in peace.

To some, the definition of Islamist might mean ‘one who surrenders in peace and harmony to the Will of GOD’. To others, that term is not fit for discussion. And when we look at the man Jesus (pbh) as he is used in today’s world can one wonder? Taken by some as a good luck, lucky charm who is a kind of boogey man who when his statue is touched, sprinkles healing and joy.

Others look upon him as a god throwing around cheer and joy for only special sects who worship him while others believe like the pagans of old that he can be bought by mere lip service so that he can be told what to do or molded into delusional wishful type of thinking. And then there are those who write him off as a mere criminal or one who was deranged in his mind.

O! What a horror it would be to those bearers of mistruths to even think that Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) could ever be an Islamist. It would drive them into a wretched fit of ill temper and frenzy tearing all of their fairytales and delusions that they so cherish into threads. So much for the Reality and Practicality of the Holy Scriptures! Even though many of us live in a pipe-dream world, people still must be realistic.

In facing the realities of this world one can see that there are four major blocks which constitutes regional-worldly powers that desire to have their way. These four blocks of ‘streaming activities’ are The United States of America, Europe, Russia and China. These four major blocks determine in a worldly sense the maneuvers, and strategic planning associated in and around their ‘territories’ as well as their maneuvers versus their opponents – economically, politically and socially.

As far as Russia and China are concerned the Islamists will be utilized if they can benefit their ‘ambitious’ programs as in the end justifies the means. Otherwise, the Islamists are considered useless refuse to be thrown in the garbage or stamped out.

Europe and America have a much gentler approach. They have in their so-called ‘free-press’ taken the term Islamist to be something that is somewhat negative, regressive, problematical and even to a certain extent detrimental to society. It isn’t that the religion of Islam isn’t recognized by the so-called ‘brain trust’ but that ‘why should people be so Islamic’ in the first place?

In other words, take your claimed philosophy as kind of a hidden joy behind closed doors and let the greater works of freedom reign! This is done for the reason of letting society advance as it is supposedly meant to advance from the hands of those who are full of reason and good intent – whatever that means.

Anyone listening to the news mediums of radio, TV, blogs or whatever will get the feeling that Islam will be tolerated as long as it is behind closed doors and doesn’t rub society the wrong way. This means as to what societies are founded on and how one conducts one’s life so as not to stand out in a crowd unless one is performing on a high level of approved correctness especially in front of the masses.

With this said it appears that we have two things running: the world as it appears to those who are worldly (why fix things that already work) and those who are serious (not pretenders) to the spiritual realm of Reality.

Of course it is understood especially in the Holy Records that have been passed down that there are those who are corrupt and seek out truth to bless themselves as being holy and righteous (equaling the self-smug righteousness used by the arrogant) and the others who labor ‘in the fields’ to be better human beings in faith and understanding (generally called the meek and showing sincere earnestness).

There is a third thing, however, which tends to complicate matters especially among Muslims and that is the feeling that ‘the majority rules’. It is sometimes good, sometimes bad and sometimes indifferent but in the end it can cause massive confusion due to misunderstandings, religious differences and plain ordinary ignorance and the refusal of letting others open the book of truth. This concerns a variety of cases especially if various so-called ‘sects’ are involved.

One of these examples that occurred in the past in Christianity which showed religious lunacy happened between the Catholics and the Protestants concerning whose GOD is REAL. Is the Roman Catholic God for real or is the Protestant God for real? Such divisions occurring before men of so-called faith seem to be whipped up by the various levels of the priest-class (the men of instruction) followed by mostly quarrelsome individuals who have no understanding or real religion but follow a certain crazed mania of invention to suit their personal whims.

When the Pure Islamist (Jesus the son of Mary, the Messiah (pbh) returns in a few decades, he will as the chief priest-king reign in splendor and glory unto the kingdom given him in the Fifth Age of man. Isn’t it ironic that he is, which can be most definitely proven by the Holy Records, the Real Pure Islamist! In fact, one can truthfully say without the slightest contradiction that Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) is most definitely an Islamist!

So what we have here appearing in front of the world can now be translated into approximately his words, ‘That they hated me (Jesus) without just cause.’ And those who are of faith can understand why the world went on to hate him and that was because he came to do the work that THE ONE GOD sent him to do for Allah does not need the permission of any of HIS servants and especially man to accomplish what HE WILLS!

So he is hated by most even unto those who claim him as their own. Hated because he is re-shaped and re-tooled into the image of something he is not and therefore; the lie against him is slanderous. After all, if people don’t like the real Jesus (pbh), they feel free to substitute a ‘false’ one to take his place and create fictions about him. Is this hatred or not? One honors a man not through fiction but through telling the truth.

The idea that Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) will return in a form of leadership but return NOT in the capacity as a prophet can be gleaned from both the New Testament and Islamic materials. First of all, Prophet Muhammad (pbh) is the SEAL of the Prophetic office and there will be no more prophets after him. There is no need for the prophetic office now due to the fact that Revelation has ceased in that the Quran is the Last of the Testaments and is kept undefiled.

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger (pbh) said, “My similitude in comparison with the other prophets before me is that of a man who has built a house nicely and beautifully, except for a place on one brick in a corner. The people go round about it and wonder at its beauty, but say, ‘Would that this brick be put in its place!’ So I am that brick, and I am the last {seal} of the prophets {by whom no other prophet will come after me}.”    (Bukhari)

There are several references in the New Testament claiming that another prophet will come after Jesus (pbh) and I have dwelt on some of those in these articles and my books though in these things there are some things hard to be understood.

However, if we can understand the much maligned Paul in his discourses discussing the real role of Jesus (pbh) as ‘After the Order of Melchizedek Forever and Forever’, we might be able to understand that Jesus (pbh) will only be in the position – the high and exalted position of being that priest-king that surely must come. So in part where is this title of the priest-king coming from? It comes from the understanding, in part, of the personage called Melchizedek.

*So who was Melchizedek? He is who he was and who he will be. The Dead Sea Scrolls talk of his parents (mother and father) on the other side of the Flood. His parents died and he was taken up to the Heavens as a child on the other side of the Flood and taught by two sublime teachers. Then when Allah Willed, he was sent back to Earth and all we know of him is what has been sparsely recorded.

However most importantly, who was this Abraham (pbh) who had discourses with Melchizedek?  Although Melchizedek was NOT a prophet to the masses, he served as the ‘priest-king of THE MOST HIGH GOD’. And it is of some importance to understand why Abraham (pbh) gave him tithes. The tithes were real but in the spiritual sense they represent ‘in him I give these blessings’ such that the branches shall not wither and be thrown into the fire but shall be blessed and be made safe but only for those who have FAITH and not the pretenders.

And remember that Abraham was tried by his LORD with certain commands, which he fulfilled: HE (Allah) said, “I will make you an Imam to the people. He (Abraham) pleaded, “And also (Imams) from my offspring!” HE (Allah) answered, “But MY Promise is NOT {going to be} within the reach of evil-doers.”   Q (2: 124)

For now one must understand Abraham (pbh). He is considered the ‘father of the prophets’. That is by understanding that he is the ‘trunk’ of the ‘tree of life’ that features the three major Monotheistic Religious branches as we know them today: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

These three ‘branches’ of this tree have many leaves which are its people ‘who are as numerable as the stars of the sky or the grains of sand at the beach’. And the tree itself would die due to the evils of the world, its corruptions and forgetfulness.

As we have seen over and over again, as put forth in the example of Noah (pbh) and his people, lest there be that spiritual water to feed that tree by Allah’s Permission the blessed tree cannot support the branches. That spiritual water or cleansing water as found in the Dead Sea Scrolls is known as the personage of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbh).

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger (pbh) said, “By HIM in Whose hand Muhammad’s soul is, there is none from amongst the Jews and the Christians who hears about me and then dies without believing in the Message with which I have been sent but he will be from the dwellers of the Fire.”    (Muslim)

**From the Gospel of Barnabas:

Then said the priest: “How shall the Messiah {the one to be appointed or anointed for this task} be called and what sign shall reveal his coming?”

Jesus answered, “The name of the Messiah {appointed  or anointed one to come after me} is admirable, for Allah HIMSELF gave him the name when he had created his soul and placed it in a celestial splendor. Allah said, “Wait Muhammad, for your sake I will to create Paradise, the world and a great multitude of creatures whereof I make you a present insomuch that whoso shall bless you shall be blessed and whoso shall curse you shall be accursed. When I shall send you into the world, I shall send you as MY Messenger of salvation and your word shall be true, insomuch that heaven and earth shall fail but your faith shall never fail. Muhammad is his blessed name.”

Behold! Allah took the Covenant of all the prophets. Saying, “I give you a Book and Wisdom; then comes to you a Messenger, confirming what is with you; do you believe in him and render him help?” Allah said, “Do you agree and take this My Covenant as binding on you?” They said, “We agree.” HE said, “Then bear witness and I am with you among the witnesses.”    Q (3: 81)

See you not how Allah sets forth a parable? A goodly word like a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed and its branches (reach) to the Heavens of its LORD. So Allah sets forth parables for men in order that they may receive admonition.               Q (14: 24)

Yet if this tree of faith, for faith is life, be crooked (corrupted) then where is there a hope for salvation? The hope remains as always with ALLAH and the admonition that is given so that one may bow down in obedience to HIM and serve HIM in the best of ways.

And the parable of an evil Word is that of an evil tree: It is torn up by the root from the surface of the earth: it has no stability.   Q (14: 26)

Beware of false prophets {and false teachings}, which come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly they are ravening wolves {bent on leading one astray}.

You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles?

Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit.

A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire.

Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.    Matthew (7: 15-20)

Parables are very enlightening but they only reach those who are not diseased in the heart. Therefore, these parables are not for those who have been called the dead, blind or deaf because their meaning is either taken as a fairytale or else they are passed off as nothing but empty fluff for the foolish who have woebegone notions of being humbled in spirit and obedience to the ONE GOD.

However, that being said and with all due proportion, balance and context IT MUST NEVER BE FORGOTTON WHAT THE PROPHET (pbh) STATED ABOUT HIMSELF:

‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (pbh) as saying, “Do not eulogize {overly praise} me as the Christians eulogized {overly praised} the son of Mary. I am Just HIS {Allah’s} Servant, so say, “Allah’s Servant and Messenger.”                               (Bukhari and Muslim)

**The Gospel of Barnabas as I have claimed is a forgery but listen! I claimed that it was not written by Barnabas although many ideas may have come from him. This Gospel, much like the four Gospels in the current New Testament have the similarity of being proven to ‘honest’ people at least as having been re-worked for various unscrupulous reasons.

The Gospel of Barnabas shows definite signs of being tampered with including ‘remaking’ of some items during the Spanish-Christian-Muslim era and so that is that. Nevertheless, it does contain truthful elements. However, why would one want to hold polished glass as beautiful as it might be when they can hold a polished diamond instead (THE GLORIOUS QURAN)?

So let us take a look at one of the Gospels found in the current New Testament: The Gospel of John and see how that fairs under close but honest scrutiny. As one can see there are certain similarities happening between both of these so-called Gospels. From the book, The Non-Crucifixion of Jesus pages 97-103 with slight adaptations.

A CASE OF SHOCK AND AWE # 3

“The truth about the Gospel of John is not totally clear. Most Christian scholars are in agreement that this gospel was initiated between 90-100 AC but a few hold out for a date as early as the 60s or even as late as the 130s AC. Surprisingly, most relevant experts in the field believe the author of this gospel to be an unknown non-eyewitness to the events of Jesus. That would be strange indeed!

The problem with this gospel is that it appears that two different hands wrote it but that a third hand revised it while bringing it into an acceptable format of ‘current’ beliefs. In truth, it appears that most of this gospel was written by one person before 90 AC and retouched by a close companion of the first author in trying to protect its existence. So, we have a virtual agreement as to its truth in a large part of its verses considering that the original writer was the beloved Apostle, John son of Zebedee and the second author appears to have been his disciple who also was named John.

Critical scholarship has found several ‘holes’ in this gospel to shed doubt on its purity. It does seem that only a few decades past before the Gospel of John underwent the knife of a clever surgeon. Whether the third compiler was a man called Cerinthus or not, it seems that chapters 19 through 21 have been skillfully changed. The notion of the real Last Supper seems out of sync with even the Synoptic Gospels and of course there is the so-called crucifixion issue which seems to read well but in truth is really botched up.

The vast majority of the Gospel of John is probably true but that doesn’t make it understandable as to who Jesus really was. Even those of good faith but weak in scripture might become confused. So who is this Islamic Messiah or the noblest of souls? He is a common, ordinary man who earned the right by God’s Will and by His Will alone to be that Sign to mankind. All power is given to him because he is a man who succeeded and came into his inheritance. Therefore, all power deserving to be held by a man called a Vicegerent (as some men are) is given to him because of God’s Promise to the sons of Adam.

This Promise dictates that a person, any person, who succeeds in a certain type of judgment, has the right to be amongst the company of the highest of created beings including the Angels. As for Jesus (pbh) he declared it of himself but giving all due respect to his Creator and knowing full well that he could do nothing of and by himself save for His Creator’s Will.

How do we know this for sure? We can know this because before the so-called crucifixion scenario he spoke truthfully that:

…”I have overcome the world.”   John (16: 33) and “Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.” John (16: 11).

If he passed judgment of a certain kind as the Quran says Q (S 3: 55) then he should inherit a dominion promised to him. And as he arose to the heavens as a vicegerent, he shall return in the fullness of power given to him as Vicegerent. He must fulfill his duties in giving honor to his Lord and must commit (bow down) to His Plan and reign in power and dignity in Islam and then die because he is a man and as a man he must await the Last Day of Judgment as all men are constrained to do. However, he will not be standing with others but will stand with his own kind – the one brotherhood of prophets as witnesses for or against those who are to be judged.

This honorable prince of the world is not King but a prince serving his KING – the Only KING – Allah (God).

The Gospel of John poses a major difficulty for the Peoples of the Book. The difficulty is in recognizing what kind of gospel it really is. Historically, the early church had a big problem with this gospel and argued about it over the years as to its authenticity. This gospel began to gain acceptance as a ‘true’ gospel between 110-115 AC. It must be remembered, however, that different sects of Christians had different ‘readings’ so the Gospel of John was not universally accepted as a major work by all of the faithful. That plus the possible various authors lending a hand to this gospel was also responsible for its lack of historical backing.

However that may be, the Gospel of John is quite different from the other three Synoptic Gospels because it was written in a certain style, at least originally, and this style has caused a tremendous amount of pain for many people.

Like it or not, this gospel appears to have been written by one of the rarest of individuals called a real Gnostic. Unlike the cheap imitations floating around after the time of Jesus, and there were many, this writer at times dwells on the status of the Messiah. He does not hide the excellence of the Messiah but proclaims it. However, under no situation does this author proclaim that Jesus was any more than a man and a righteous servant of the One True God.

Other people might disagree with this assessment but the original author of this gospel knew very well that another prophet was to come and WHY he was to come and he didn’t hide that fact either.

The real problems with the Gospel of John are several Gnostic sayings which if not taken in context with the other records, chiefly the Old Testament, will cause havoc with the church even before 100 AC. And when one looks at the original writer as John the beloved Apostle of Jesus and follows his surviving letters in the New Testament, one can see that he delivers a strong warning to those who will try to make mischief with the truth.

In fact, Paul, another real Gnostic and a rarity of the times because 99 out of 100 of them seem to be liars, describes the whole process in a nutshell. He talks about Divine Destiny and that no one will be able to overcome it. In fact, he is giving a very strong warning that the vile mischief-makers have practiced deceit somehow or have deceit in their hearts and that the One God will deceive them and cause them to slay themselves (their souls) such that their own destruction will be by their own perverted hands.

A strong statement to make but one that is reinforced by the Quran as that it is what the hands of man have passed on from before that has become their undoing and that it isn’t the One God Who is responsible for their choices but that they chose themselves to walk down the road of self-destruction even though they were given many chances to enter the Light. They, through their arrogance, simply refused to follow commonsense and treated the one brotherhood of prophets as perverse trouble makers.

Where does Paul declare this? He declares this in 2 Thessalonians (2: 3-12):

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition {the Anti-christ};

Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

And now you know what will withhold that he might be revealed in his time.

For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now lets (hinders) will let (hinder) {concerning the topic of Divine Destiny} until he is taken out of the way.

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the {Master} lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Even him {Anti-christ}, whose coming is after the work of Satan, with all power and signs and lying wonders,

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they did not receive the love of truth, that they might be saved.

And for this cause, God will send them strong delusion that they should believe a lie {follow the ways and dictates of this liar or the selfishness of their own souls}:

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Paul’s advice is most definitely Islamic when he declares:

“Therefore, brothers, stand fast, and hold {to} the traditions {Sunnah} which you have been taught, whether by word or our epistle.   2 Thessalonians (2: 15)

This is good, sound advice and it tells the believer in any age to go back to the original source and to hold onto what is the life’s blood of any religion and that is the practices of the one who was originally sent to keep man free from falling into the ditch of dogmatic error as well as providing a source to console the soul and to make the way clean and pure.

In the Gospel of John, Jesus (pbh) declares who and what he is as I have tried to explain in my two previous books, The real Holy Grail: The Messiah on Trial and He is not My Ancestor.

Muhammad (pbh) did the same. Why should these two prophets of world fame hide what and who they were? However, they both put these things in the proper perspective and were not arrogant or self-serving. They both declared that they were but men. Men who could not pluck a blade of grass if it were not for the Permission of their Lord and men having everything to fear if they turned away from their Lord and men having to depend upon their Lord for their very success in seeking salvation for themselves.

The problem for the Peoples of the Book has always been the consistency, coordination and perspective in understanding Divine Scripture. Whereas some become bloated by their own importance and see scripture as confirming their own excellence, others have taken a more practical approach in trying to understand harmony, unity and reality.

This mentality actually becomes a ‘war’ within side man’s soul as to how he operates between various peoples and systems and how he treats or mistreats people. Such is the way men have kept toiling down through the ages.

So in the practical sense, most men are not really different than the pagan Arabs of old. Yes, we believe in a One God of sorts and yes, we believe in an afterlife of sorts but so didn’t they. So what is the real difference between modern man and the pagan Arabs of old? In reality, there is not that much of a difference and that is very scary indeed!”

*Why is there a talk of this Melchizedek anyway? There is an understanding, if one looks close enough, of the ‘change in direction’ of a type of worship taking place or a new phenomenon if one wills. This understanding can clear up some verses found in the current New Testament concerning the NON-NEED FOR BLOOD SACRIFICE AND OF COURSE THE IDEA IS REINFORCED ONCE AGAIN CONCERNING THE NON-CRUCIFIXION REALITY.

On the other side of the Flood, sacrifices, much like what has been reported of the doings concerning Able and Cain, were acceptable practices for what can be called the ‘expiation of sins’. However, as the Old Testament has reported in Genesis (by interpretation), this practice was much abused by people and turned into something corruptible and evil by what can be called as a priest-class.

Anyway, a new paradigm change came about in that one man would be so designated in the future as to be born sinless and remain sinless as a holy sacrifice but a different type of sacrifice. So following after the Order of Melchizedek, there was one man born pure and kept pure and his name was Jesus the son of Mary (pbh) the priest-king.

So what is found in the Book of Hebrews in the New Testament among the other Holy Books is wrong and the ‘blood sacrifice’ of one man hanging on the cross is correct, or the ‘blood sacrifice’ of one man hanging on the cross is wrong and that verse in Hebrews and what is found in the other Holy Books is correct!

For it is NOT possible {NOW as was once ordained in the past} that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

Wherefore when he {Jesus} came into the world, he said {concerning GOD}, Sacrifice and offering YOU would not {have}, but {in place of such a thing} a BODY have YOU prepared {for} me:

In burnt offerings and sacrifices for SIN YOU have had NO PLEASURE.

Then said I {Jesus}, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me), to do YOUR WILL, O GOD.    Heb. (10: 4-7)

Then said he, Lo, I come to do YOUR WILL, O GOD. HE {GOD} takes away {abrogates} the first {practice of ages gone by} that HE may establish {by HIS WILL} the second.     Heb. (10: 9)

Of course the depths of understanding or the lack thereof has given rise to much confusion about this issue and about this man, the Pure Islamist – Jesus the son of Mary (pbh). However, the Quran, which has been discussed in these articles, is THE PURE and UNDEFILED WORD OF GOD and of that there should be no doubt by those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

So one can turn to the Quran and find the TRUTH. It is as simple as that.
