My Jesus (definitely NOT the jesus of the Quran) is full of GLORY … today.
But when He first came to visit mankind, He gave all of that up so that He could become fully man (and despite those who doubt, fully GOD!) and experience completely everything that we do. He was the Word from the beginning and enjoyed Wonderful Glory in the presence of the Father from eternity. He has this glory again today but we can’t see it from our perspective, but we will one day. He will return and every eye will behold His Glory as He comes to bring his Bride home one day. His glory is found throughout the Scriptures, but I like these:
“To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.”
Jude verse 25
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken; then will appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven, and then all tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”
What’s more, if you are His, you too can be arrayed in such splendid glory. Speaking of the end times, Jesus (of the Bible) said that right after the tares are pulled from the garden and thrown into the furnace of fire, the righteous would share His glory. Check this out:
“Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.”
Now let’s look at Isa (jesus of the Quran). I can’t seem to find that same glory mentioned of him…not even among the Muslims who know about him. When his name and the word “glory” appear together in the same sentence or paragraph, the glory is being given to the false, lying god of Islam, not to jesus (of the Quran). Refer to Talking Point #25 on this site and you’ll see “the all glorious” applied to the god of Islam – not to jesus (of the Quran). In fact, even though the Quran calls him a messiah, that word only means “messenger” and imparts absolutely no glory, supremeness, and certainly no deity. So, jesus (of the Quran) has no glory.
Let’s recap. The god of Islam gives himself the title “all glorious” and does not share this with jesus (of the Quran). The god of Islam wants to keep his “deity” (stop laughing!) all to himself and refuses to share it with jesus (of the Quran). The god of Islam does not have a son and certainly does not want to be called a father. I could go on and on with the comparisons. Does anyone still think that jesus (of the Quran) can be the same as Jesus (of the Bible)?
Jesus (of the Bible) is unique in His love, glory, holiness, righteousness and eternal majesty. He does not exist in the Quran in any manner. What can be found there is a look-alike set up by the false god of Islam (empowered by Satan himself) to trip up the Jew and the Christian and to damn as many Muslims as he can.
So let’s witness to the Muslim, absolutely! But not with compromise. Let’s tell them the truth about their god and about ours and pray that the Holy Spirit has or will open their eyes and hearts to accept Him. There is no other way to salvation, regardless of what the “Chrislam” folks teach (pay attention, jiQ people). No, folks, the god of Islam is not the God of the Bible, and…
Jesus is NOT in the Quran!
