How Does It Happen That the Quran Denies What It Says Does Not Exist

Normally this reader does not like to intervene, though lately, there seems more reason to. In the exchange this is being responded to, there seems to be the recurring theme, my holy writ is better than your holy writ, and that will be a recurring situation for some time to come, until very shortly now, it will be resolved. Now, lest there be someone who has not perceived the position of this reader in all these things, allow a reiteration here. This is a goy, or if I understand correctly the other phrase, a khafir, depending on one's proclivity to label; but truly I am a follower of the Anointed One of Israel, Son of the Living Father, the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, a believer baptised and blood washed.

In the discourse, there is a repeated attempt to disqualify the veracity of the Hebrew Holy Scriptures, using one of the many stale old arguments that because there is no original document to make some comparison with, that somehow it makes the Holy Bible we use today insolvent and corrupt. This attempt to discredit the Bible uses words that are spoken by those who, looking for any reason to disbelieve in order to salve one's own conscience, need to fill a spiritual void, and are repetition of the same archaic excuses that have led so many astray before.

In the attempt at interplay of the two belief systems, there is much made of references to Yeshua in the Quran, and to show that the writer(s) of the Quran did not respect the person of Yeshua, and describe Him with the their lack of knowledge plain to see. The disrespect is plain to see, because the Prophet of Islam did not respect Yeshua.

The lack of knowledge of the Hebrew Scriptures in transferring any references to Yeshua to the Quran is shown in that all prophetic passages are completely missing. There are corroborated texts of the Hebrew Holy Scriptures predating the first known writing of the Quran by hundreds of years that completely describe Yeshua as the person He is and how He relates to Israel as we know it today, and that is completely missing. Until the Quran can be demonstrated as showing such things, then its creditability to referring to Yeshua at all is limited to the Prophet of Islam telling his followers he did not believe in Yeshua HaMashiach at all and desires to replace him. That is the true intent of the Quran and Islam altogether.

It is written in the Hebrew Holy Scriptures that the power in play at the time of the close of the gentile age (Books of Daniel, Ezekiel, others) will have its moment in the sun. It appears now that Islam is being prepared for that time. Israel is destined to fulfill and complete the Biblical passage related to it and the rest of the world is being brought into play as well.

Since it can be demonstrated that there is proof of Israel's destiny in their Holy books, it would be unwise to try and dismiss the Holy Bible for the sake of an inconvenient truth or lack of faith. And further, one need not argue about disputations of whose holy works are better than whose, since the proof is in the fulfillment as it happens. And as it happens, in spite of all the efforts to the contrary, Israel is, her LORD will always be, and no matter the reason that the Quran does not have passages to explain why Israel still exists after so many hundreds of years, the Holy Bible does have those passages and they can be referred to understand why believing in Yeshua HaMashiach makes perfect spiritual sense when anything else does not.
