JERUSALEM UPDATE - 15 SEPTEMBER 2001

TORAH LIGHT MINISTRIES
ALLAH IS NOT JEHOVAH
The followers of Islam believe that Allah is the one god. They have convinced the majority of Christians and Jews that Allah is just the Arabic word for GOD. Moslems say that we all worship the same God. They believe this to be true. However, this is not true. Allah is NOT Jehovah.
The Koran, the bible of the Moslems, is written in classical Arabic. Very few Arabs can read classical Arabic. So, what the Mullahs and Imams say in the mosques, is what they know about the Koran. The average Moslem has second hand information.
THE DOME OF THE ROCK
On the Temple Mount, Mount Zion, is a Moslem building with a golden dome. It stands over the site where the altar of burnt sacrifice once stood in Solomon's Temple. It is an eight-sided building with ceramic tiles decorating the sides.
Around the top portion of all eight walls there are writings on the tiles, written in classical Arabic. They are quotes from the Koran. Two of these quotes show that Jehovah and Allah are NOT the same Being.
ALLAH HAS NO SON
The writing on one wall declares that Allah told Mohammed: "I have no son, and whoever says he is my son is a liar." So, Allah has no son, has never begotten a son. What does Jehovah have to say on this subject?
"God has fulfilled this for us their children, in that He has raised up Jesus. As it is also written in the second Psalm: `You are My Son, today I have begotten You.' (NKJ)
"I will declare the decree: the LORD has said to Me, `You are My Son, today I have begotten You.'" (NKJ)
Here is one big difference between Jehovah and Allah. Jehovah HAS a son, Allah does not. Allah also says that if anyone says that he is his son, that one is a liar.
What did Messiah Jesus say about being the son of GOD?
63 But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest answered and said to Him, "I put You under oath by the living God: Tell us if You are the Christ, the Son of God!"
64 Jesus said to him, "It is as you said. Nevertheless, I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven." (NKJ)
When the High Priest asked Jesus if He was the Son of God, Jesus said yes, what you say is so. Messiah Jesus also went beyond that declaration of being the Son of God, He also declared Himself to be GOD the Son.
"I and My Father are one." (NKJ)
So, if Allah is Jehovah, Allah is saying that Jesus is a liar for saying that He was the Son of God.
Jehovah spoke from Heaven when John the Baptist baptized Jesus.
17 And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." (NKJ)
11 Then a voice came from heaven, "You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." (NKJ)
22 And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, "You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased." (NKJ)
Thus we see that Jehovah DOES have a Son, a Son in Whom He is well pleased. There is thus an irreconcilable difference between Allah and Jehovah. Jehovah HAS a Son, and is pleased with Him. Allah has no son, and if someone says that they are his son, he is a liar. Obviously Jehovah and Allah are not the same being.
WHO IS ALLAH?
Allah says he is God, wants to be worshipped as God, wants to have his throne on Mt. Zion in place of Jehovah. Now, I wonder who that could be?
9 And he said to Him, "All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me."
10 Then Jesus said to him, "Away with you, Satan! For it is written, `You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.'"
"For you have said in your heart: 'I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north;'" (NKJ)
SATAN THE DESTROYER
Devout Moslems bow and worship Allah/Satan five times a day. Those who serve Satan, act like Satan. They become destroyers. Moslem suicide bombers destroy life, their own and the lives of others.
Moslems destroyed more than 4,000 lives this week, including destroying airplanes and buildings. Serve the Destroyer, act like the Destroyer.
Islam is a religion of destruction and death. NEVER let a Moslem tell you that you, a Christian, serve the same God. You DO NOT worship the same God.
Shalom in Messiah Jesus,
