sTs,

Your understanding of GOD's eternal promise to the Jews is flat out WRONG. I can understand why. You have been taught since birth that Ishmael, not Issac, is the lineage and seed of GODS' promise. This is incorrect. Let me just say one thing before I show you some scripture that should change your mind and your interpretation of GOD's word.

GOD's word is 100% divine. It is the 100% inspired, living, breathing word of the one true HOLY GOD. It can NOT be changed! Never has and never will. Attempts have been made throughout history but the sovereign LORD GOD of Israel will not allow it. His covenant with Israel will never be broken. GOD's word does not return to him void.

Your Quran is nothing more than a bunch of scripture from the Holy Bible (God's word), twisted up and mangled into a flat out lie. Mohammad was ...very emotionally and mentally disturbed. So much to the point when the Jews did not belive his ... religion, he had them murdered. He was a furious man!

Here is a little piece of GOD's word that should clear up the vital truth about GOD's covenant with Israel.

Genesis 25:11-13 (New International Version)

New International Version (NIV)

Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society

11 After Abraham's death, God blessed his son Isaac, who then lived near Beer Lahai Roi.

Ishmael's Sons

12 This is the account of Abraham's son Ishmael, whom Sarah's maidservant, Hagar the Egyptian, bore to Abraham.

13 These are the names of the sons of Ishmael, listed in the order of their birth: Nebaioth the firstborn of Ishmael, Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam.

chapter 16:11 The angel of the LORD also said to Hagar:
"You are now with child
and you will have a son.
You shall name him Ishmael, [a]
for the LORD has heard of your misery.

12 He will be a wild donkey of a man;
his hand will be against everyone
and everyone's hand against him,
and he will live in hostility
toward [b] all his brothers."

chapter 17:15 God also said to Abraham, "As for Sarai your wife, you are no longer to call her Sarai; her name will be Sarah. 16 I will bless her and will surely give you a son by her. I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her."

17 Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, "Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?" 18 And Abraham said to God, "If only Ishmael might live under your blessing!"

Then God said, "Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. [d] I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him. 20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation. 21 But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you by this time next year." 22 When he had finished speaking with Abraham, God went up from him.

chapter 21:8 The child grew and was weaned, and on the day Isaac was weaned Abraham held a great feast. 9 But Sarah saw that the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham was mocking, 10 and she said to Abraham, "Get rid of that slave woman and her son, for that slave woman's son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac."

11 The matter distressed Abraham greatly because it concerned his son. 12 But God said to him, "Do not be so distressed about the boy and your maidservant. Listen to whatever Sarah tells you, because it is through Isaac that your offspring [b] will be reckoned. 13 I will make the son of the maidservant into a nation also, because he is your offspring."

chapter 22:9 When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. 10 Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. 11 But the angel of the LORD called out to him from heaven, "Abraham! Abraham!"
"Here I am," he replied.

12 "Do not lay a hand on the boy," he said. "Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son."

sTs, do you understand now? Ishmael was born by a Darah's maidservant named Hagar the Egyptian. This is why GOD makes his covenant through Abraham, Isaac (born of Sarah, Abrahams' wife), and Jacob and all their descendants. The truth can NOT be denied. I am sorry to inform you that your Mohammad and his Quran are a complete LIE.

Peace be to you and I hope you one day accept Jesus Christ into your heart and surrender your life over to him.
