This article will respond directly to the following questions:
Why is there something as opposed to nothing?
What’s gone wrong in the cosmos?
Is there any hope?
How will history end?
What is the role of the Abrahamic Religions in Time and Eternity?
Who is the Creator of the Universe, Time and Life?
Is the god of Islam i.e. Allah, the same God of Judaism/Christianity?
As the years of our lives pass with
incredible haste and memories are blurred by the thief of Time we often
neglect to stop and ponder “why” is there “something” as opposed to
“nothing?” Why is there life and why is there such intricacy and
symmetry in our Universe? Surely, the origin of matter that forms our
Universe extending downward to the complexity of the human genome is not
the culmination of Time+Chance+Matter? If not, then why am I here
constrained within this realm of Time?
Following, is a brief, condensed,
summation of years of contemplation, study, listening, reasoning, all
provided by the grace of God the Father through His Holy Spirit. You may
disagree and your rebuttal is welcome.
So then, why are you and I existing in Time…what is our purpose and is
there a Plan? If so, who, what, where, when, why and how?
In the Beginning, God – Why?
There are multiple pillars of Truth upon which our Creation in “Time” finds its relevance, its purpose.
Part I provides a brief overview of our Creator’s plan and purpose for Time, Earth, LIFE.
Part II provides an overview of Islam, Allah, Muhammad, Ishmael and
their relevance in the cosmic struggle that has manifest in Time.
Note: A brief list of supporting Scripture for Part I are posted in the addendum.
“the one who practices sin
is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of
God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8 (NASB)
“For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.” Romans 9:28 (KJV)
1) The Creator of LIFE, the Universe, has identified Himself as Jesus Christ (Elohim-Yeshua) and He desires a relationship with His created beings, both Angelic and Human (John 1; John 3:16).
2) Relationship, one that is manifest in purity and authenticity, mandates volition,
free-will, the ability to choose to love or to hate; otherwise,
relationship is robotic and thus impotent. Our Creator has provided His
created beings, both Angelic and Human, with free-will, the ability to
“choose” Jesus Christ as Lord or reject Jesus Christ and serve Satan by
default. Those who reject our Creator will be “without excuse” at their
judgment in Eternity for our Creator has provided extant empirical
evidence relevant to His existence, His reality and dominion “through
what has been made.” (Romans 1:18-32)
3) Our Creator is Spirit and though His
abode is the Spiritual Realm, He transcends both the Spiritual World and
Time for He is Omniscient, Omnipresent and Omnipotent (John 4:24; Psalm
4) Our Creator is perfect HOLINESS,
perfect JUSTICE, perfect RIGHTEOUSNESS; therefore, He will not permit
the destructive presence of sin to dwell within His Eternal Kingdom (1
Peter 1:15-17; Revelation 21:27).
5) Our Creator was content
in His relationship with His angelic beings but iniquity manifest in
the Kingdom as a result of a rebellious Angel, Lucifer, who coveted the
authority and dominion of our Creator (Isaiah 14:12-14; Ezekiel
28:11-15). A coup d’état followed as Lucifer introduced
sin-iniquity into the Eternal Kingdom and one-third of the entire
Angelic Realm followed Lucifer in his rebellion against our Creator’s
dominion and authority (Revelation 12:4).
6) The Holiness and Justice of our
Creator mandated swift and sure action in order to limit the destruction
of sin in His Kingdom; therefore, Lucifer, along with the rebellious
Angels, were cast out of the Eternal Kingdom (Luke 10:18; Ezekiel
7) In order to deal with the rebellion
of Lucifer, Lucifer’s sin and the rebellious Angels apart from the
Heavenly Kingdom, our Creator subsequently spoke into existence the
Realm of Time and within the constraints of Time He placed the Universe,
Earth, Lucifer, Mankind (Genesis 1). Our Creator took elements from the
Spiritual Realm that are not visible to senses i.e. life constrained by
the Realm of Time and He formed those elements which are not seen in
Time into matter which can be apprehended by life constrained by Time.
It is this matter emanating from the Spiritual World that forms the
basic building blocks of all things visible and invisible within the
Realm of Time (Hebrews 11:3; Colossians 1:15-20; John 1; Genesis 1).
8) Our Creator, desiring to maintain volitional love with His faithful Angelic beings, set-forth a plan “before the beginning of Time”
i.e. the Gospel of Jesus Christ to defeat Lucifer’s sin and rebellion
with selfless and sacrificial LOVE as opposed to arbitrary punishment
that would have undoubtedly destroyed volitional love, for if our
Creator had simply destroyed Lucifer and the rebellious Angels for
their coup d’état, the remaining two-thirds of the faithful
Angels would no longer love their Creator out of volition but fear.
Perfect love and relationship cannot manifest in fear (2 Timothy 1:10).
9) Our Creator placed Lucifer on the
Earth and permitted him access to mankind who ultimately relented to
Lucifer’s enticement of sin resulting in “The Fall” of mankind. Man’s
rebellion to the authority and Covenant of God resulted in sin which
corrupted the human genome; therefore, the wages of sin is death of the
body and spiritual death. Mankind’s sin also resulted in a chasm, a
fracturing of the intimate relationship between God and mankind that
existed prior to Adam’s rebellion (Genesis 2; Genesis 3; Romans 6:23; 1
10) Our Creator entered into a covenant
with mankind which indicated the seriousness of sin and the power of
sin’s destruction in both Eternity and Time…our Creator pointed to the
shed blood of innocence as the only acceptable payment for sin, for the
“life” of God’s created beings within the Realm of Time is in the blood
and only innocent blood is deemed as sufficient to forgive sin and
redeem the fallen nature of mankind (Matthew 26:28; John 3:16; 2
11) Seeing that only the blood of
innocence could forgive sin, our Creator left Eternity and manifest in
the Realm of Time approximately 2018-yrs ago in the Incarnation where He
clothed Himself in flesh by being born of the seed of the woman through
the Holy Spirit thereby circumventing the seed of the man which carries
the culpability/sin-nature resulting from Adam’s rebellion against our
Creator’s authority (Philippians 2:8: Galatians 4:4; 1 Corinthians
15:22; Romans 5:19).
12) Our Creator, for 33.5-years, walked
among His Earthly creation and defined God to all who would receive His
message of life, then our Creator submitted to the horrors of a Roman
Crucifixion in order that His innocent blood would be shed and
ultimately He experienced death, burial and resurrection thereby
defeating sin, death, Hell and the Grave and ultimately Lucifer through
selfless LOVE and sacrifice (2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 10:5).
13) Our Creator established a New
Covenant in His own blood stating that any man, woman or child who would
trust in His death, burial and resurrection as payment for their sin
would be forgiven of all sin, past-present-future and thus redeemed and
made HOLY, acceptable to enter the Kingdom of God subsequent to the
death of the body constrained by Time. In addition, our Creator infuses
the Gift of the Holy Spirit into the life, the Earthly body of every
believer as the Guarantor of His eternal relationship with everyone who
trusts in Jesus Christ as LORD-God-Savior-Mediator (Ephesians 1:13; 1
John 2:27; John 14:16). This New Covenant AKA The Age of Grace will
remain in effect until the Tribulation Period involving the Nation of
Israel and the armies of Satan, represented by Allah/Islam and Islam’s
allies, who do battle to destroy Israel and thereby attempt to nullify
the promises of God to Abraham concerning the descendants of Jacob
(Israel) (Zechariah 14:12; Revelation; Matthew 24).
14) Subsequent to the Tribulation
period, Satan and his angles will be bound/made impotent for
one-thousand-years during the Millennial Reign of Messiah-Jesus. Perfect
peace and tranquility will reign upon the Earth as Jesus Christ rules
from Jerusalem over all the Nations of the World (Revelation 20:1-10).
The Millennial Reign and its peace and tranquility will further
demonstrate to the faithful Angels in the the Kingdom of God that
Lucifer/Satan is the father of lies, suffering, death and that sin must
be thoroughly defeated via righteousness (Revelation 20:1-6; Isaiah
24:22; Isaiah 9:3–7; 11:1–10; Isaiah 65). This
truism will be confirmed at the end of the Millennial Reign of peace as
Satan and his angels are released upon the Earth once again to deceive
and destroy in unconscionable horror (Isaiah 24:22; Revelation 20:3;
Revelation 20:7-10). It is our Lord Jesus Christ who will ultimately
defeat Satan/Lucifer in this second-rebellion at which time Satan and
his minions will be relegated to punishment in Hell forever (Revelation
20:9-10; Revelation 5:5).
15) To this end, our Creator will
receive full acknowledgment from His Angelic Creation that Lucifer, the
rebellious Angels, deserve eternal punishment in Hell subsequent to
witnessing the pervasive, unconscionable destruction, carnage and death
that manifest as the resultant of Lucifer/Satan’s lies, deception, hate,
divisiveness while on Earth which are all the manifestation of SIN. Our
Creator will receive praise and affirmation for having dealt with the
rebellious Angel with such wisdom, love, compassion; this, while having
maintained volitional love with those who honor, worship and adore our
Creator as LORD.
16) It is plausible that our LORD is
replenishing the vacuum/void in the Eternal Realm that was left as a
result of Lucifer’s rebellion and the absence of the Angels who followed
Lucifer in that rebellion. As evidenced within Time, our atmosphere
abhors a vacuum and it is logical that when the number of rebellious
Angels has been replenished by the redeemed/faithful of mankind, the end
of the Age of Grace will manifest. Though mankind, in the resurrection,
will NOT become Angelic, redeemed mankind will play an intricate role
in serving our Creator in the Eternal Kingdom.
The Unfaithful and Judgment
Those who have rejected the saving grace
of Messiah-Yeshua-Jesus will be brought forth from Hades-Sheol
subsequent to the Millennial Reign of Messiah; these unfaithful will be
adjudicated in accordance with their works, their deeds done in the
body (The Great White Throne Judgment)
and will be subsequently pronounced guilty for sin and will suffer a
second death…a death of finality in the Lake of Fire/Hell and will cease
to exist seeing that nothing impure will be allowed to enter God’s
Kingdom (Revelation 20:11-15).
ISLAM – ISRAEL – CHRISTIANITY
It is imperative that one understands
the manifestation of the cosmic-Spiritual struggle between Lucifer and
Yeshua and how said struggle has manifest in Time.
Allah v. Yeshua
Islam is most
certainly an Abrahamic Religion as Islam finds its genesis in Ishmael
born to Abraham through an adulterous relationship with Hagar. Ishmael
is the progenitor of a people our Creator refers to as “wild donkeys”
and it is through Abraham’s infidelity with Hagar that Lucifer-Satan
has publicly introduced himself to mankind. It is important to note at
this point that Ishmael is not the son of promise but only through Isaac born to Abraham and Abraham’s wife, Sarah, was the promise of Messiah-Yeshua manifest to the World.
Lucifer’s sin in the Kingdom was covetousness, for Lucifer passionately desired to be like the Most High and desperately desired God’s worship, authority, dominion. Lucifer, a beautiful cherub angel, coerced one-third of the entire angelic realm
to follow him in a cosmic rebellion, a coup de taut, against our
Creator, Jesus Christ-Yeshua; therefore, Lucifer and the rebellious
angels (now demons) were removed from the Kingdom. Our Creator spoke
into existence the realm of Time and within the constraints of Time, our
Creator placed this Universe, Earth, mankind and Lucifer.
And He said to them, “I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning.” Gospel of Luke 10:18 (NASB)
It was in the Garden of Eden that the struggle between Yeshua and Lucifer/Allah was initiated and that struggle can be observed throughout the pre-flood
and post-flood generations with its most virulent episode manifesting
at the Crucifixion of Yeshua. It was not until the 7th-Century (622AD+-)
that Lucifer publicly introduced himself through a pagan Moon-God
(Allah) and the plagiarized writings of a murderer, thief and pedophile
named Muhammad AKA Abū al-Qāsim Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd Allāh ibn ʿAbd al-Muṭṭalib ibn Hāshim (Born: April 22, 571 AD///Died: June 8, 632 AD, Medina, Saudi Arabia)
Important note before we continue: In Paul’s letter to the Church at Corinth, by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Paul writes the following concerning Satan: “No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” (2 Corinthians 11:14, NASB) Of the 360 gods worshiped at the Kabah in Mecca, the Moon-god was the chief deity. Mecca was in fact built as a shrine for the Moon-god.
Is the Holy Spirit, in Paul’s letter to the Corinthian Church,
identifying the god of Islam/Allah-Satan (a moon god) by referring to
him as a disguised “angel of light”? It’s interesting that the Moon is
not actually a light but the Moon simply reflects the splendor of the
Sun, the true light that lights the entire Earth. The Moon is a lesser
light that governs the darkness (Genesis 1:16) and does NOT express the glory of the True Light. “Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.’” (John 8:12, NASB). Finally, in 2 Corinthians 4:4, Satan is described in this manner: “in
whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the
unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the
glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”
It is through the way of Islam that
Allah-Satan has received power, dominion, worship, as he fervently
battles against the people of Yeshua i.e. the Jews and the Christians.
Allah-Satan finds acceptance and legitimacy by touting the relationship
of Islam with Abraham. Yeshua speaking concerning the attributes of
Allah-Satan has warned us…
are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your
father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the
truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he
speaks from his own nature, for he is a and the father of lies.“ The Gospel of John 8:44 (NASB)
Allah-Satan conspired with Hitler
and untold others to destroy the Jew, but Allah-Satan in his efforts to
annihilate the Jewish people unwittingly inspired the “Never Again”
movement and the Nation of Israel was reborn (1948); the struggle
between Allah-Satan and Yeshua has exponentially increased subsequent to
the fulfillment of Ezekiel’s prophecy (Ezekiel 34:13). It will
ultimately be Islam-Allah-Satan and his allies, Russia-China-Arab
coalition, that sparks the coming Apocalypse that will be a nuclear war initiated in Jerusalem, Israel. Yeshua will be victorious!
will bring them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries
and bring them to their own land; and I will feed them on the mountains
of Israel, by the streams, and in all the inhabited places of the
land.” Ezekiel 34:13 (NASB)
Praise to God
the Father for His all encompassing compassion and love and mercy. All
glory and honor to Yeshua who is victorious over the Evil One and has
set the captives free from death in sin and death in Hell via His love,
faithfulness and mercy at the Crucifixion. Praise and worship and
eternal gratitude to the Holy Spirit for His faithfulness, wisdom,
intercession, tutelage and compassionate love with much patience. Amen!
Finally, all available evidence in
Scripture leads to the conclusion that had Lucifer not rebelled, there
would be absolutely no reason for the creation of Time, the Universe,
Earth, Mankind or Hell. This LIFE, constrained by Time, is nothing more
than preparation for Eternity. Every man, woman, child has been
provided a unique opportunity to take part in God’s Plan of redemption
where our Creator is currently seeking those who will be faithful to
serve Him throughout Eternity. The Key to finding life and purpose in
Time and in Eternity is Jesus Christ and trusting in Jesus as your
personal Savior and LORD…there is no other way for mankind to find
righteousness (a right standing) before God the Father and there is no
other way to find life in Eternity without Jesus Christ as your Mediator
