#1. Mohammad said, “The Prophet (Mohammad) believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and (so do) the believers. Each one believes in God, His Angels, His Books, and His prophets. (They say,) ‘We make no distinction between one or another of His prophets…’” (Quran 2:285)
Muslims believe in those prophets mentioned by name in Islamic sources, such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, Moses, David, Solomon, Jesus, and Mohammad–may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, to name a few. A general belief is held in those not mentioned by name, as God says: “And, indeed We have sent prophets before you (O Mohammad)” (Quran 40:78)
#2. Though mentioning prophets like Moses who said God gave him the law, Islam does not look at what Moses said is “righteous as all this law,” Deut 4:8. But that law offered equality and justice…
Why drive a car over a small boy’s arm for stealing a loaf of bread in a Muslim country? The Bible teaches to repay four sheep for a stolen sheep, and it is the father’s responsibility for not teaching his son until the son is 12 years old.
Eye for eye, stripe for stripe, life for life. For Muslims to ignore that law to take a life that God gave, is an act of judgment that God condemns and will punish.
#3. God also set the boundaries for the descendants of Ishmael when He gave the Middle East to Abraham for his seed, Genesis 15. Going past those boundaries is wrong as seen by the prophet Daniel who was endorsed by Jesus who was endorsed by Mohammad.
#4. Daniel saw a militant Muslim ram pushing north (into Russia), south (into Africa) and west to Europe and US in Daniel 8. But its pushiness (militancy) angers a goat that flies from the west to smash the ram and break its (militant) horns that are said to be the kings of Media and Persia. They were defeated, historians say, in 331 BC at the Battle of Arbela by Alexander the Great. But Gabriel said the vision is “at the time of the end.” Daniel 8:17. The Medes are now Iraq–this vision of 2500 years ago is half fulfilled. We will see the goat with a great horn (Trump[ets] were made from horns) defeat Iran (Persia).
Islam has no holy book that sees the future as the God of the Bible. They believe that Ishmael was spared by a ram caught in a Bush, and they celebrate it yearly in a feast called Al-Adha.
But the Bible says Isaac was spared. Which is the true holy book? The vision in Daniel 8 (above) shows God is sacrificing the militant Muslim ram (Iraq and Iran) to spare Isaac (Israel) because Iraq and Iran have wanted to drive in the sea. The Quran can’t compare with the Bible for its prophecies of the future, nor for the greatness of its laws.
#5. The life of Mohammad does not compare to the life of Jesus who divided BC from AD and who died pay for our sins to reconcile us to God. When Isaac asked Abraham where the sacrifice was, Abraham replied, “God will provide Himself a sacrifice.” Genesis 22:8. It was an amazing gift of His Son whom He resurrected three days later from a tomb with a Roman guard. Disciples who had fled for fear were later willing to die for Christ after seeing Him alive. Do we expect they died for a lie?
Muslims believe a lie if they live or die to kill others. Christ said, “Inasmuch as you have done it to the least of these, you have done it to Me.” Matthew 25:40. He knew the value of human life and died to give it to us.
A militant Muslim ram will have its other horn (Iran) broken and then may all Muslims understand the Bible as the true holy book and that Christ loves each person individually and will give us eternal life if we repent of our ways and to understand the His way of life.
