Muhammad in the Bible and not Jesus

in response to reader comment: Jesus in the Bible, Not Muhammed

Isaiah 42: 1-17:

42:1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

Servant of Christ if you were to read Matthew 15:22-27 it says that Jesus was only send to the house of Israel and he called the gentiles dogs.

42:2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.

If you read Bukhari 3.335 it will say this about Muhammad (pbuh): "You are neither discourteous, harsh Nor a noise-maker in the markets..." [Bukhari 3:335] See the similarities between Isaiah 42:2 and Bukhari 3:335

42:3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.42:4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.

Prophet Muhammad did not stop until his message from Allah was given to the people. He overcame his enemies and spreader Islam to the whole of Arabia and the law in which the people were waiting for was the Quran.

42:5 Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:

42:6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles

Jesus gave no new covenant in the bible in fact in Matthew 5:17Jesus say that he has only come to fulfil the old law set by the prophets: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. This verse proofs that Jesus came with no new law and he only cam to fulfil the old one.

42:7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

42:8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

Now Isaiah 42:7 does not mean that this prophet will heal the blind by making them see they again, it means that this servant will show the people a new way. In Isaiah 42:8 God is saying that he will not give glory to another God nor shall he have graven images of himself. But look at the Roman Catholic faith they have images of Jesus who is god in the churches and some even pray to Jesus or the Virgin Mary for help.

42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

God is telling us in the above verse that new things will and he is going to tell them to the people of Israel.

42:10 Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.

The new song the God is talking about is the Quran because the new song means another language.

42:11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the

mountains.

Muhammad is the direct descendant of Kedar and this go to this website to see for your self:

www.answering-christianity.com/family_tree.htm

and I did not say that all Arabs are descendants of Ishmael nor did Muhammad (pbuh) say that. Go to this website to see that Ishmael and some of his descendants lived in Arabia:

www.answering-christianity.com/paran.htm

Now I got a question for you if the Arabs are not the descendants of Ishmaels then who are and has God fulfil the promise that he gave to Hagar that Ishmael shall be a great nation?

42:12 Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands

42:13 The Lord shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of

war: he shall cry, yea, roar, he shall prevail against his enemies.

42:14 I have time holden my peace: I have been still, and refrained myself: now I will cry travailing woman: I will destroy and devour at once.

42:15 I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands and I will dry up the pools.

God his clearly saying that this prophet will make war and he shall prevail against his enemies and did Jesus make war during his life no he only taught love toward his enemies.

42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

42:17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, ye are our gods.

In Isaiah 42:16 it says that he will lead people of Kedar in to paths they have not known and he will make darkness light before them with Prophet Muhammad. In Isaiah 42:17 God say that they false pagan gods will be put to shame. Prophet Muhammad did to this to they gods when he entered the Kabah and destroyed all they 365 false gods and put them to shame because they gods didn't do anything. So Prophet Muhammad was foretold in the bible.

Now I talk about Isaiah 41:

1 "Be silent before me, you islands!
Let the nations renew their strength!
Let them come forward and speak;
let us meet together at the place of judgment.

2 "Who has stirred up one from the east,
calling him in righteousness to his service?
He hands nations over to him
and subdues kings before him.
He turns them to dust with his sword,
to windblown chaff with his bow.

3 He pursues them and moves on unscathed,
by a path his feet have not traveled before.

4 Who has done this and carried it through,
calling forth the generations from the beginning?

I, the LORD -with the first of them
and with the last—I am he."

5 The islands have seen it and fear;
the ends of the earth tremble.
They approach and come forward;

6 each helps the other
and says to his brother, "Be strong!"

7 The craftsman encourages the goldsmith,
and he who smooths with the hammer
spurs on him who strikes the anvil.
He says of the welding, "It is good."
He nails down the idol so it will not topple.

8 "But you, O Israel, my servant,
Jacob, whom I have chosen,
you descendants of Abraham my friend,

9 I took you from the ends of the earth,
from its farthest corners I called you.
I said, 'You are my servant';
I have chosen you and have not rejected you.

10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

11 "All who rage against you
will surely be ashamed and disgraced;
those who oppose you
will be as nothing and perish
.

12 Though you search for your enemies,
you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you
will be as nothing at all.

13 For I am the LORD, your God,
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
I will help you.

14 Do not be afraid, O worm Jacob,
O little Israel,

for I myself will help you," declares the LORD,
your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.

15 "See, I will make you into a threshing sledge,
new and sharp, with many teeth.
You will thresh the mountains and crush them,
and reduce the hills to chaff.

16 You will winnow them, the wind will pick them up,
and a gale will blow them away.
But you will rejoice in the LORD
and glory in the Holy One of Israel.

17 "The poor and needy search for water,
but there is none;
their tongues are parched with thirst.
But I the LORD will answer them;
I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them
.

18 I will make rivers flow on barren heights,
and springs within the valleys.
I will turn the desert into pools of water,
and the parched ground into springs.

Isaiah 41: 1-18 are talking about the helper of Israel which is Yahweh it is not talking about Jesus and is definitely not a prophecy future King or servant. The above verses are talking about how Yahweh has helped Israel in defeating his enemies and how he will help they land and give it water and it is not talking about the coming of Jesus. You also say that Isaiah 41:21 is talking about Jacob's in which you say is Jesus but it is not look carefully at the verse:

21 "Present your case," says the LORD.
"Set forth your arguments," says Jacob's King.

First God says present your case in which he describes himself has the Lord of Jacob then he say set forth your arguments and say he is Jacob's king and also if you read the following verses you will see that God is talking to the idols worshippers to prove that they idols are real and powerful and not about Jesus.

Then you say the following:

You can defend this prophecy if you want or show me other "prophecies" about Muhammed.

I have defended this prophecy and I will move on to the prophecy about the prophet like Moses in Deut 18:8.
