Final Battle Between Ishmael & Isaac

By Dr. Stephen R. Phinney Yes, it’s true! The Muslim people have a Jesus (Isa) and a forerunner returning prophet (Mahdi). The Islamic nation has a future seven year reign. Just like the Christians and Jews, the Sunni and Shia Muslim denominations have their own eschatology (prophetic studies connecting the past to the future). Mahdi is Arabic and is translated in the English as “Guided One.” But in the Muslim world, it means so much more! Mehdi (with an e) is Early Arabic for “One of the Moon” or “stands alone by the moon.” The early Islamic believers developed the lone star by the crescent (or dawning) moon for their flag and icon from this word. Both spellings reveal the same message: the “prophesied redeemer of Islam” who will “rule on earth for seven years” before the “Day of Judgment” (what they call “yawm alqiyamah” or “Day of Resurrection”). The Islamic people believe that Mahdi is a “powerful and central” figure in their past, present, and future. Other names given to this figure are “Muslim Forerunning Prophet of Jesus,” Twelfth Imam,” and “Muhammad al-Mahdi.” They have firm and immovable beliefs that this al-Mahdi will be returning from his place of “occultation.” Occultation, in the Arabic,(Ghaybat) means “hidden spirit clergy.” In the English, it means “the place of hiding for those who practice witchcraft by means of an occulted dark spirit/demon.” They are of the belief that this al-Mahdi is a “messianic infallible male” descendant of the founder of the First Testament Islam, Muhammad. They go on to tell me that this “descendant” was born of Muhammad, but disappeared into the occult. He will one day return and fill the world with justice, purity, and peace. The basic mutuality of their beliefs state that this Mahdi is none other than the Muhammad al-Mahdi or the Twelfth Imam. He was said to be born in AD 869 and was hidden by “god” at the age of five. Believe it or not, both denominations believe this figure is still alive, but has been placed in “occultation” until their “god” releases him to have global control and rule the earth for seven years. According to their doc-


trines, at the end of this Mahdi’s rule, the “great Isa” will then return. Isa is Arabic for Jesus. This is why the Muslim people hate the Christians so much—they believe that we have stolen their “Isa” and made him into a wimpy emergent and lukewarm leader. In the dogma of Islam, Isa is considered to be the final messenger of “god” and the “messiah” who will be sent to lead the “children of bani-israil” (Israel) with newly formed and established scriptures, the “Injil” or gospel. This is where the offense of the Christian New Testament comes in. Muhammad came with the revised, or rewritten and re-authenticated First Testament, the Qur’an (Old Testament). The Isa will come with the final Second Testament (New Testament) for the new earth that will be ruled by Allah through Islam Isa—Jesus. It is documented that true Muslims believe their Isa was born of Maryam as a result of a miraculous and virginal conception, which occurred by permission of Allah. It is stated that Isa will be given power from Allah to aid the true bloodline descendants of Israel—the Muslims. This is the reason for the warring over this territory for thousands of years. They believe the Jews are wannabe fakes. Muslims do believe that their Jesus lived during the time recorded in the Christian Bible, but do not believe he was crucified and raised from the dead. None of their leaders, or historians, can really tell us how their Jesus died; most believe he just “ascended into heaven” and now await the time of his return. This doesn’t match what Muhammad said about what their baby Jesus stated in Maryam 30-33. Muslims are not real fond of death and resurrection stories. The primary purpose of the Isa Jesus is to return to earth around the time of their “Great Judgment Day,” to restore justice and destroy (defeat), Ad-Dajjal. He (Ad-Dajjal) is whom they call the Christian false messiah, also known to them as the Christian Antichrist. Without question, they believe this Jesus is 100% pure Muslim —not Jewish or Christian. They tout that he was completely obedient to Allah, from the beginning to the end. Muslims not only reject the Christian Jesus, they believe they must go to war with the Christian Jesus. They are appalled and enraged by the Christian belief of Jesus being the incarnate Son of the Living God; who was crucified, died, buried, resurrected, and ascended into Heaven for the atonement of the sins of all of mankind —including the Muslim sins. The rewrite of the New Testament by Muhammad removed all references to these Truths. In fact, Muhammad stated in his rewrite that THEIR Jesus will actually come to deny all of the “twisted Christian beliefs” about him. Muhammad’s rewrite says that their Jesus was an honest and moral man, but certainly NOT God. They see him as a prophet and a significant one at that. They put Jesus in the category of being one of the primary messengers, if not the most significant, to spread the words of Allah throughout the entire world. The Islamic nation is given permission by Allah to “purify” any and all people, places, and religions that make “association partnerships” with God. They call this the sin of “shirk.” A true and authentic Muslim is a strict “tawhid,” or monotheist. From their perspective, the Jewish and Christian people are the biggest shirk violators on the face of the earth. Since there are so many languages and dialects, there are many titles given to their Jesus; but the Christian name is not the closest—it is exact. Isa means Jesus. The Arabic and its relative derivative languages most commonly refer to him as “alMasih” (Allah’s messiah). True bloodline Muslims views Jesus as the “seal of the Israelite prophets,” due to their belief that Jesus was sent by Allah as the last and final prophet to mankind. These same bloodline Muslims believe Jesus was the precursor prophet to announce the coming of Muhammad. In his rewrite (the Qur’an), Muhammad openly reveals that their Jesus was born of their Maryam. She was a devoted worker of the temple while being under the authority of Zechariah, whom he stated was the father of John the Baptist. Muhammad did write that their Jesus was born of a virgin birth, but their version is a bit different than the Christian view. Maryam went into the temple of prayer, where she was visited by “Jibrail” (the same spirit that visited Muhammad and gave him the rewrite —the Qur’an). This Jibrail gave “tidings of a holy son.” Supposedly, this spirit told Maryam that Allah honored her as the leading mother of the nations. He stated that she would give birth to a holy son and his name would be Jesus. He will be a great prophet of Allah and offer the gospel of Allah to the world. To all of this, the Qur’an states that Maryam questioned the spirit stating, “How can I have a baby when no man has touched me?” The dominion’s responded, "When Allah wants to create a matter, he merely wills it and the things come into being.” Muhammad’s rewrite compares the birth of Jesus with the creation of Adam. Critical Note: Nowhere in Muhammad’s rewrites do we find the historical connection of Mary, or Jesus, to her husband Joseph. The reason for this is that it would connect Maryam (Mary) and Jesus to Isaac, the son who “stole the Abramic birthright of Ishmael.” Therefore, Muhammad had this completely removed from their history. Muhammad’s rewrite sheds an interesting perspective on this single woman’s birthing process. He stated that like her bloodline mother Hagar, Maryam was in the desert giving birth to Jesus when Allah caused a river to run under her, so she could quench her thirst. Then Maryam was told to “shake the trunk of the date palm tree next to her.” She did and plump dates fell from the tree to feed her hunger. According to the spirit talking to Muhammad, she gave birth that day to Isa, the Muslim Jesus. It also states that exactly forty days later, she returned (still a single woman) to her people with child in arms. She was then accused of being a harlot. Her response was for the accusers to talk to the 40-day-old baby. They did and Allah made Isa speak verses 30-33 in the chapter of Maryam, in the Qur’an. It basically says: 2


“I am a servant of God. He will reveal the Book to me and make me a prophet. He blessed me wherever I am. In the rules revealed to me there will be a special attention given to prayers and charity. God predestined that I will be kind to my mother and not a tyrant with a bad ending. Peace was on me the day I was born. Peace will be on me on the day I will die and on the day I am raised alive again!" According to the Qur’an, Jesus did exactly that: grew up to preach the message of monotheism to the rebel group called the “Children of Israel.” What about this “new gospel” Jesus was supposed to preach? Bloodline Muslims believe that Allah revealed to their Jesus the “Injil,” while proclaiming the “truth” of the earlier revelations (the Tawrat (Torah) and the “Zabur” (Psalms), which had to be rewritten by Muhammad in AD 623. The reason for this is Muhammad had this idea that the original Tawrat was corrupted by the followers of the “second born” son of Abraham —Isaac. In fact, in Muhammad’s writings he says: "It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong). And we caused Jesus, son of Maryam, to follow in their footsteps, confirming that which was (revealed) before him in the Torah, and We bestowed on him the Gospel wherein is guidance and a light, confirming that which was (revealed) before it in the Torah - a guidance and an admonition unto those who ward off (evil). Let the people of the Gospel judge by what Allah hath revealed therein. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) those who rebel." The craftiness of Muhammad’s rewrite is so deceptive that anyone can see that he was inspired —by a demon mind you, but nonetheless, inspired. Wait, there is more. Muhammad went on to write that their Jesus had not 12, but 72 disciples. Most likely the reason Satan, through Muhammad, changed the number is because of the number itself. The number 12 is one of the most significant numbers in all of mankind —12 tribes, 12 regions, 12 gates in the Temple, 12 gates in the New Jerusalem, the 12 Disciples, and many more. Even though there are no names mentioned in the Qur’an, historians believe it is because general history does not support his version of 72 disciples. What it does say is how these 72 disciples wholeheartedly submit to the faith of Islam. Check this out in Qur’an 3:52-53: “When Jesus found Unbelief on their part He said: ‘Who will be My helpers to (the work of) Allah?’ Said the disciples: ‘We are Allah's helpers: We believe in Allah, and do thou bear witness that we are Muslims.’ ” "Our Lord! we believe in what Thou hast revealed, and we follow the Messenger; then write us down among those who bear witness." The longest narrative involving Jesus' disciples is when they request a laden table to be sent from Heaven, for further proof that Jesus is preaching the true message. This story features in chapter 5, verses 112-115: “Behold! the disciples, said: ‘O Jesus the son of Mary! can thy Lord send down to us a table set (with viands) from heaven?’ Said Jesus: ‘Fear Allah, if ye have faith.’ ” “They said: ‘We only wish to eat thereof and satisfy our hearts, and to know that thou hast indeed told us the truth; and that we ourselves may be witnesses to the miracle.’ " “Said Jesus the son of Mary: ‘O Allah our Lord! Send us from heaven a table set (with viands), that there may be for us for the first and the last of us - a solemn festival and a sign from thee; and provide for our sustenance, for thou art the best Sustainer (of our needs).’ " “Allah said: ‘I will send it down unto you: But if any of you after that resisteth faith, I will punish him with a penalty such as I have not inflicted on any one among all the peoples.’ " One of the primary reasons we know that Muhammad’s version of Jesus is rotten to the core is that their own Muslim beliefs would never refer to a male child as son of a woman—NEVER! Just as in Hebrew, men are referenced as Shem (son of Noah), David (son of Jesse), and Jesus, son of _?_. I think you see the problem here —who is their Jesus’ daddy? Even a well-read Muslim knows that their version of Jesus is the Son of God. Muhammad even writes the story out in detail. This is just one of the thousands of “glitches” in the Qur’an. One of the primary reasons Muhammad didn’t support the idea of the crucifixion of Jesus is because the Romans originally developed the crucifixion venue of torture from the “old school” Muslims—the Babylonians. Agreeing with their Jesus being killed in this would say that they are the ones who killed Him. They were NOT about to admit to Reproduction permitted when entire publication remainsfashion intact.

sus dead, but were not able to due to Allah wanting their Jesus alive. Now here is another contradiction of the Qur’an. Remember when their 40-day-old Jesus said: “…Peace will be on me on the day I will die and on the day I am raised alive again!" ? Well, that is not what Muhammad ultimately wrote. He actually left readers with the idea that their Jesus was not crucified, but instead was raised up by Allah unto the heavens. This "raising" is understood to mean through bodily ascension. “That they said (in boast), ‘We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of God’;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:- Nay, God raised him up unto the himself; and God is Exalted in Power, Wise” (Qur'an 4:157–158). What webs we weave! This is not only a glitch; it is a major doctrinal glitch that can prove their beloved Muhammad is being fed inconsistent lies from the dark side. The story of their Jesus actually gets more and more bizarre as we travel through the fairy tale of the Qur’an. If you attempt to corner a well-read Muslim with the above glitch, he actually touts the lie that a Jesus replica (someone who the Romans thought was their Jesus) was crucified in the place of the “real” Jesus, which is where they get their version of the Judas of Iscariot story. But, they stand firm that their Jesus ascended into Heaven and never experienced physical death. Even though modern Islamic historians are embraced by this inconsistency and work diligently to remove it from historical documents like the Encyclopedia of Islam, most traditionalists tout it. Did you know that Muslims believe in the Second Coming of Jesus? It is true. “And he (Jesus) shall surely be a Sign for (the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment): therefore have no doubt about the (Hour), but follow ye Me: this is a Straight Way” (Qur'an 43:61). When you read some of the historical documents of Islamic tradition, there is a clear picture painted of their Jesus returning in the middle of the “great jihad” (final global holy war) started by his forerunner—the Mahdi. His Second Coming is looked upon by the faithful as their “redeemer of Islam,” who has come to put an end to the al-Masikh ad-Dajjal (Antichrist) and all those who have chosen to follow him. Who is this Antichrist? This is when it gets a bit dicey. A converted Muslim, like co-laborer Walid Shoebat, would most likely say their Jesus is the Antichrist. My research screams out another possibility. If you have been following my writings, you know that I believe there will be three final superpowers in the end. These powers come from the three sons of Noah: Shem (Israel), Japheth (Europe), and Ham (Islam). Personally, I believe these superpowers are going to “have it out.” I do believe that there will be an Antichrist who will resurface out of Rome (Europe). I also believe that the Islamic nation will claim to have a Christ who believes he has jurisdiction over the earth. I also believe in the conventional belief that literal Israel will be fought over by these two superpowers, leaving Israel alone with not one nation to be her friend. This factor alone is what prompts the real God to send the real Jesus to defend her (Israel). The traditional Muslims stand firm that their Jesus will descend just east of Damascus. He will be dressed in typical Islamic garb, be anointed, and be ready for a holy war and judgment. They tout that their Jesus will join up with the forces of the Mahdi’s war, against the European Antichrist. Since their Jesus is considered to be Muslim, they believe he, too, will keep all the mandates penned by Muhammad —the writer of Allah. Their Jesus will do what the armies of the Mahdi could not do—bring down the Antichrist. Traditionalists tell us that after this happens, all the people from the book of “ahl-alkitab” (Christians and Jews) will be free to believe in Allah. They further state that after the Christians and Jews join them in Islam, there will be one peaceful community of eternal believers —the world will be one. Since their Jesus will not compete with another “god form,” Mahdi must die, and then their Jesus will pick up one world governorship. From this moment forward, the Islamic believers will live in perfect peace and justice. Islam also addresses the Christian Bible prophecies of God and Magog. They say that “Ya’juj and Ma’juj” (God and Magog) will cause much trouble on the earth. Muhammad says that Allah will respond to the call or prayer of Jesus by “sending a worm in the napes of their necks.” With that accomplished, their Jesus will rule for 40 years. Due to Allah not sharing another “god form” with any other, Jesus, too, must die. At this time, the purified Muslims will conduct a funeral for him and then bury him in the city of Medina in a grave left vacant to this day beside Muhammad. They call this the “Abu Bakr” and the “Umar” (companions of Muhammad—the 1st and 2nd Muslim Caliphs). So there you have it —the quick, and I mean quick, rundown of the Islamic Jesus and his forerunner —the Mahdi. If you are an avid Bible reader, you have already seen the level of deception that Muhammad was under in getting these words from the “spirit.” Because the Qur’an is so close in thought, but so far apart in doctrine, the entire world is being doped into thinking there is nothing wrong with the way the Muslims believe. This is why anytime we have “Christians” get up in the pulpit and say things like, “The Muslims are our brothers and are not by nature a violent people,” —well, all I can say to that is—birds of the same feather...
