No Poison in the Heart of True Believers of Yeshua HaMashiach, Almighty God of Israel

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Poison filled heart

If this discussion is to be true in its intent to represent the differing views of each other's beliefs, then it should fair to say that in trying to present an Islamist view of the Hebrew Holy Scriptures, that what is presented in the Holy Bible is as valid, truthful and complete regarding what is contained in there, just one would expect for a reading of the Quran. One cannot invalidate and call corrupt what is written in the Holy Bible merely if it is not understood, for the same litmus test must be applied to both for any criticism to be valid. If the true facts are overlooked, intolerance is distilled into the poison that fills an intractable heart.

If the Hebrew Holy Scriptures are full of completed prophecies and the test of prophetic literature is the fulfillment of what is contained, there is no other place better than the existence of Israel in these modern times to begin a proof that the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob does harbor His love for His people, and their time for the completion of their restoration draws near, even as this is being written. In another place, we read of the fulfillment of various prophecies regarding the Anointed One, His death, burial and resurrection, and Who has completed the historical prophecies concerning His original visitation to His people, and we read in the consecutive passages of those things which are expected to occur. Such things preliminary to the return are happening before our eyes.

Now, we are told by those who follow the Prophet of the Quran that they are expecting so many other things in contradiction to the Hebrew Holy Scriptures, and by the passages of the Quran so often quoted here, that they have a confidence in what is written. There is no question that they believe, but for those who have proof of things being otherwise, a question of validity arises regarding basis of the belief, what is its substantiation and what constitutes corroboration of the facts. We find in these discussions that even the facts are in dispute.

In an interesting survey of the differing beliefs there is one item that seems to have a shared, though diverse perspective in these contemporary times, that of the appearance of a new leader, for the Islamic believers, an al-Madhi. For Christian believers, it is of course, Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ. We know that between the Islamic believers and the Christian faithful, the discussion is between the al-Madhi and the Christ. In a variant offering, there seems to be a dissention as to whom or from which line that the al-Madhi is derivative, the Shia', or Sunnah. All are expectant as to the arrival, but what remains to be seen is who is to be first, and who is to be last?

There is in the Hebrew Holy Scriptures the observation and directive that there will be both, and who is first and who is to be last. No such observation in the Quran has been mentioned by any Islamic follower that this reader is aware of, so that will be left here as an open question.

By all intents here, as mentioned, there are those who have every belief that they have the best answer to the question. But in the end, after the insurrection of the faithless world against Israel has run its course, many will see that as Israel remains as promised to Abraham by the Almighty God he truly believed in, that the proof of Israel's existence under the love of the Protector Eternal Sovereign, in spite of thousands of years of extermination attempts, is really the best example of what will be fulfilled, and what will not.
