Listening to God!

We all need prayer against temptation. It certainly helps to bring your concerns to God on a daily basis and 'lay your cards' in front of Him.
God wants to know how He can help you and He wont interfere until you ask Him.

Pray that your success is all due to Gods blessing.
Pray a prayer of thanks to God that he opened up others hearts to hear your words of encouragement and that you were one of the chosen to spread His word.What an honour!!


We should ask God to first deliver ourselves from the enemies of this world and the enemies against His word, and then ask God to deliver our friends, family and colleagues against the same.

The character of God should be the basis of a Christan's confidence.
God promised multiple times in the bible that He would meet our needs, so we should be assured that when we ask God for strength to withstand trials and temptation, that He will be there for us and help us against such evil.

It is really difficult to be able to pray and then 'all of a sudden', things all come right immediately. This doesn't happen to me and I believe that this maybe a reason why most people struggle to hold a strong faith, because it seems that God is not listening! GOD IS LISTENING!

He may not just fix things in your time, but all in His time!
If your earnestly pray about something and still feel that you don't get an answer, then it may be that we are not letting God speak. Maybe we don't listen for His voice.
Try it!
It may not be an audible voice, it may be through His word or it may be through a feeling that you get or through someone else that you meet. God has His ways of speaking to us, We just need to listen.

I would love to know others thoughts on this matter

God Bless you all.

  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.
    Jesus never mentioned anything about trinity / triune God.
    Jesus never said to anyone to worship him.


    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.
