Articles

Thank you for visiting with us to learn what the Word of God teaches. We do this by periodically writing articles of interest that address key questions of faith and practice. We have separated the articles in four tracks. The first track is called "The Way of Righteousness" and discusses what God has said of being in right standing with Him through the Prophets. The second track discusses "Jesus Christ (Isa Al Masih)" and his teachings and his identity. The third track discusses special interest topics that cover the "Taurat, Zabur, Prophets, Injeel and Quran". The fourth track is called "Decide For Yourself" and covers what the scriptures have said about key topics of faith and lets you draw your own conclusions. Note what the Injeel teaches as to why it is important for each of us to study the Scriptures.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. Injeel, 2 Timothy 3:16-17

The Way of Righteousness

In the studies on "The Way of Righteousness" we explore the Writings of the Prophets which reveal how unrighteous people can become righteous before God.  Which way are you following--the way of righteousness or the way of unrighteousness? Do you want to know the way of righteousness that comes from God? The Word of God says, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." (Injeel, Matt. 5:6)

In these studies on The Way of Righteousness, we will study the Scriptures chronologically, beginning where God Himself begins, that is, at the very beginning.  We will learn many important things about God and the prophets. We will see that although many prophets wrote the Holy Scriptures, only one Author inspired the prophets: God. The Scriptures of the Prophets contain many stories, but only one central message: the Good News about how people can be made righteous before God.

Thousands of years ago, the prophet Job {Ayyub in Arabic} asked the question, "How can a man be righteous before God?" (Prophets, Job 9:2) Do you know God's answer to Job's question? Do you know how you can be righteous before God? Do you desire to seek Him and His answers?  If you want to know God's response to this question and many others, we invite you to read and study with us in the series The Way of Righteousness. God makes this promise: "If you seek me with all your heart, you will find me!" (Prophets, Jer. 29:13)

Jesus Christ (Isa Al Masih)

Some say Jesus (Isa) was a great teacher, others say a Social Reformer, still others say a great Messegner and Prophet of God. Some even call him the Word of God, a Spirt from God or even the Son of God! How did Jesus view himself? Who did he think he was? Why did he call himself the "Son of Man"? Why did he come? What was special about him? Did previous Prophets speak and make predictions about him? Did he come to give a new revelation? Did he come to fulfill all of God's promises to Mankind?

Taurat, Zabur, Prophets, Injeel and Quran

What is the Word of God? What are the Books of God? Some say that only the Quran is the Word of God. Others say all revelation from God is the Word of God! Some claim that the revelation previous to the Quran have been corrupted! But can God's Word become corrupted? Is God Greater or Man Greater? Does not the Quran teach that all of God revelation is equal? We believe in Allah, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the Prophets, from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another among them. (Surah 3:84)

Some claim that the Taurat, Zabur and the writing of the Prophets has been corrupted. Is this possble? What did Jesus (Isa) have to say about that in the Injeel? "Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished." (Injeel, Matthew 5:17-18)

What about the teaching of Jesus (Isa) in the Injeel itself? "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away." (Injeel - Matthew 24:35)

Decide For Yourself

In every aspect of our lives we read, study, discuss, think about, reason and then come to a conclusion regarding matters of life.  Our decisions are made after we have looked into things for ourselves.   If the decision we make will impact us greatly, we spend more time making sure we truly understand, before making a conclusion.  If it is matter of life and death, even so much more time and energy needs to be spent.  

What about knowing God?  What about studying the Word of God as he has revealed it to mankind from the days of Prophet Adam, Noah, Abraham and others?    The Holy Scriptures tell us, "In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways…" (Injeeel, Heb. 1:1) Yes, one of the main ways God has spoken to man is through the prophets. In the past, God appointed certain men to proclaim His Word and to write it down in books (scrolls). The Word of God says, "You must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit [of God]." (Injeel, 2 Pet. 1:20,21)

Do you what the Prophets have spoken and understand it yourself?  Do you decide for your self?  Or do you let some scholar (Arabic:  Ulema)  decide for you?  In this series we share what the Word of God says and let you decide for yourself what it teaches.  We keep our commentaries and interpretations (Arabic; Tafsir) limited, so you may understand, think about, reason and Decide For Yourself what God’s Word says.
