Christ is Supreme

Has anyone ever seen God? According to the bible in Exodus 33:20 when Moses asked God to see His face, He said that no person would ever see His face and live. Scary thought! But then how did God actually show himself to people in the bible throughout the old and new testament?

In the Old testament, it is said that God appeared in Theophanies (appearances of God):
  • Burning bush
  • Dreams and Visions
  • As an Angel
  • Through a thunderstorm
  • Fire smoke and thunder on Mt Sinai
In the new testament, Many people believe that God took on human flesh through His son Jesus Christ.
I found this all very confusing until I read here in Colossians where it says that Jesus was always "around". He existed before anything else. Everything was created through Jesus for Jesus.
Jesus was around even before creation. There are some arguments that say that in the old testament that the voice of God was actually that of Jesus although I am not sure about that.
When Jesus came to earth in 'flesh' form and died that terrible death, He shed His blood for our sins.This took me back to the Old testament to see what happened to people that sinned at that time and heres the comparison:
  • In the Old testament, animals for scarificed and their blood was used to temporarily cover up these sins until the Messaih came in the New testament.
  • In the new testament, Jesus shed His blood for our sins. Read Hebrews 9:12 (Neither by the blood of goats or calves, but by His own blood.........)
God has given us a new life through the death of His son and through His grace, allows to ask for forgiveness for our sins. Arent we lucky? The sad thing is, there are so many people that just cant get to grips with this.

Question:
What do you think with the quote that "some people say that God took on the flesh through His son Jesus Christ"?

  1. Bible is not the Pure message that Jesus preached. Bible is written by people who never saw Jesus.
    Jesus used to prostrate on the ground and pray to his Lord same as the Muslims.
    Jesus used to eat meat which had to be bled and prayed on same as the Muslims.
    Jesus was circumcised same as the Muslims.
    Jesus used to pray to One God same as the Muslims.

    If you want to know who Jesus really was go and read the chapter called Mary in the Quran.

    ....................


    The following is from the Gospel of John 5:30 - 31 from the Arabic Bible. In English Bible you will get the word God in the place of Allah. The millions of Arab Christian use Allah not God. The word God is used only by the English speaking Christians.

    .........................
    Gospel of John 5:30 -31

    "On my own I am powerless. I judge as I am told (told by Allah). My judgement is just because I do not act based upon my own will but rather I submit to Allah's will. The will of Allah has sent me as his messenger. If I represent Myself my representation is different from and inferior to what Allah directs me to do".

    ..........................

    From the above statement Jesus Christ is clearly stating he is sent by Allah as a messenger (Prophet) to guide the mankind.

    According to the above statement in the Gospel of John, Jesus must be teaching Islam.

    Islam means: Being in peace by sincerely submitting to the will of God.

    In the above statement from the Bible Jesus clearly says he is submitting to the will of God.

    In the above statement you can say Jesus cannot be the God.

    Quran says he is the Prophet of God like Moses, Abraham, Muhammad, David.
    Peace and blessing of Allah be upon all his prophets.

  2. Dear Muslim Jesus.
    Thank you for your comments. They truly are a "fun" read.
    Whilst I enjoy comments from everyone I would just like to point out that this blog site is not a religious debate site. Many people reading this blog, and I know this as fact,have alreadydecided to call Jesus their Lord and Saviour. Attempts from other religion facts trying to persuade christians that they are worshopping the wrong God and Jesus is a prophet - should be made in the right forum, not here.

    Second, you are quite correct. Our Arab Christian brothers and sisters use the name "Allah" for the God of the Bible. Allah is simply the Arab word for god. In the Arabic Bible, the Word Elohim (Hebrew for God) or Theos (Greek for God) is always translated as Allah. Incidentally, the Arab Christians called God "Allah" LONG BEFORE THE BIRTH OF MUHAMMAD AND ISLAM.
    There is no doubt, or argument, that the Arabic word "Allah" means God! Before the advent of Islam, the Arabs referred to Pagan deities, such as Hubul (the major god of the Kaa'bah and the city of Mecca), as "allah". Hubul, however, WAS NOT the same "Allah" preached by Muhammad. Likewise, the English term "god" can refer to the God of the Bible or to other deities such as Brahma, Osiris, Shiva, or Krishna who ARE NOT the same as the God of the Bible.
    The God (or Allah) of the Bible revealed His message of salvation and love, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, to humankind and, as it is often said, God knows best!
    Good luck in your quest to prove that Jesus is just a prophet, but you certainly will not get any further effort from me to prove who Jesus Christ actually is.

    I would love other opinions here as well.
