A FRIENDLY WARNING TO OUR MUSLIM NEIGHBORS





Please reconsider your intention to hate and kill Jews and to exterminate Israel. You might be fighting against Allah. While God has been upset with His people and has temporarily abandoned them, this will all be changed:

·       Isaiah 49:13-15: Shout for joy, O heavens; rejoice, O earth; burst into song, O mountains!    For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones. But Zion said, "The Lord has forsaken me, the Lord has forgotten me." "Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I [God] will not forget you!”

God will fulfill His promises to Israel in the end:

·       Ezekiel 36:24-31: "For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. You will live in the land I gave your forefathers; you will be my people, and I will be your God. I will save you from all your uncleanness. I will call for the grain and make it plentiful and will not bring famine upon you. I will increase the fruit of the trees and the crops of the field, so that you will no longer suffer disgrace among the nations because of famine. Then you will remember your evil ways and wicked deeds, and you will loathe yourselves for your sins and detestable practices.”

He does not forget His promises:

·       Isaiah 44:21-22: "Remember these things, O Jacob, for you are my servant, O Israel. I have made you, you are my servant; O Israel, I will not forget you. I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you."

You might succeed in killing many Jews. If it is God’s will, you might even lay waste to Israel. However, God’s plan for the Jews will prevail:

·       Jeremiah 33:6-8: "I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security. I will bring Judah and Israel back from captivity and will rebuild them as they were before. I will cleanse them from all the sin they have committed against me and will forgive all their sins of rebellion against me.”

·       Hosea 3:5:  Afterward the Israelites will return and seek the Lord their God and David their king. They will come trembling to the Lord and to his blessings in the last days.

·       Zech. 12:10: "And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication.”

·       Amos 9:14-15: “I will bring back my exiled people Israel; they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them," says the Lord your God.

God will restore Israel to faith so that He can reconcile Israel to Himself:

·       Hosea 14:4-5: "I will heal their waywardness and love them freely, for my anger has turned away from them. I will be like the dew to Israel; he will blossom like a lily. Like a cedar of Lebanon he will send down his roots;

·       Micah 7:18-20: You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea. You will be true to Jacob, and show mercy to Abraham, as you pledged on oath to our fathers in days long ago.

All of the nations of the world are therefore told to rejoice with the good fortunes of Israel. And those who continue to persecute Israel will receive God’s vengeance:

·       Deut. 32:43:  Rejoice, O nations, with his people, for he will avenge the blood of his servants; he will take vengeance on his enemies and make atonement for his land and people.

If you are wise, you will repent from being an enemy to Israel and the Jews:

·       Micah 4:1-2: In the last days the mountain of the Lord's temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and peoples will stream to it. Many nations will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths."  The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

Please know, dear neighbors, that God will avenge those who have oppressed Israel:

·       Zeph. 3:15-20: The Lord has taken away your punishment, he has turned back your enemy. The Lord, the King of Israel, is with you; never again will you fear any harm. At that time I will deal with all who oppressed you…At that time I will gather you; at that time I will bring you home. I will give you honor and praise among all the peoples of the earth when I restore your fortunes before your very eyes," says the Lord.

This is also the message of the New Testament:

·       Romans 11:26-29:  And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: "The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob. And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins.  “As far as the gospel is concerned, they are enemies on your account; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account of the patriarchs, for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable.

I am therefore concerned for you. You mustn’t blind yourself to God’s purpose regarding Israel and His vengeance against those who continue to hate Israel:

·       Isaiah 41:11: "All who rage against you [Israel] will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish.”

·       Isaiah 51:21-23: This is what your Sovereign Lord says, your God, who defends his people: "See, I have taken out of your hand the cup that made you stagger; from that cup, the goblet of my wrath, you will never drink again. I will put it into the hands of your tormentors, who said to you, 'Fall prostrate that we may walk over you.' And you made your back like the ground, like a street to be walked over.”

·       Joel 3:19-21: “But Egypt will be desolate, Edom a desert waste, because of violence done to the people of Judah, in whose land they shed innocent blood. Judah will be inhabited forever and Jerusalem through all generations. Their bloodguilt, which I have not pardoned, I will pardon."

Please don’t dismiss these verses but consider what your Koran says about them:

·       “Proclaim what is revealed to you in the Book of your Lord. None can change His words..” (18:27)

·       “…and you shall find they remain unchanged…” (Jonah 64; Cattle 34, 115)

·       “Falsehood cannot reach it from before or behind.” (Revelations Well Expounded 42)

·       “After those prophets We sent forth Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming the torah already revealed, and gave him the Gospel, in which there is guidance and light, corroborating that which was revealed before it in the torah, a guide and an admonition to the righteous.” (The Table 46)

·       He has revealed to you the Book with truth, verifying that which is before it, and He revealed the Tavrat and the Injeel aforetime, a guidance for the people, and He sent the Furqan. (3.3)

·       Surely We revealed the Taurat in which was guidance and light; with it the prophets who submitted themselves (to Allah) judged (matters) for those who were Jews, and the masters of Divine knowledge and the doctors, because they were required to guard (part) of the Book of Allah, and they were witnesses thereof; therefore fear not the people and fear Me, and do not take a small price for My communications; and whoever did not judge by what Allah revealed, those are they that are the unbelievers…[5.46] And We sent after them in their footsteps Isa, son of Marium, verifying what was before him of the Taurat and We gave him the Injeel in which was guidance and light, and verifying what was before it of Taurat and a guidance and an admonition for those who guard (against evil). (5.44)

·       “Say: ‘People of the Book, you shall not be guided until you observe the Torah and the Gospel and that which is revealed to you from your Lord.” (The Table 68, 47)

·       “Believers, have faith in Allah and His apostle, in the Book He has revealed to His apostle, and in the Scriptures He formerly revealed. He that denies Allah, His angels, His scriptures, His apostles, and the Last Day, has strayed far from the truth.” (Women 136)

Please also listen to your conscience – the conscience that God has given you to guide you into His truths. In your heart, you know that it is wrong to kill the innocent. You know that sex-slavery is wrong. Even if you have had teachers (Imams) who have misled you, Allah will still hold you responsible for the truths He has put in your heart.

I write these things not to hurt you or even to criticize you, but in hope that you will seek the truth and find the forgiveness that can only come through Jesus.

  1. The Hebrew and Christian Scriptures you quoted speak clearly, and it was wonderful to see one passage after another declare the truth about Israel and about her enemies. You showed us that there is a measure of truth to be found in the Koran, as well. This essay is a wonderful message of hope and truth and admonition to Muslims. I pray that they would read these words and think. I pray that they would allow these Scriptures and their consciences within them to lead them to the way, the truth and the life found in Jesus.

  2. If we love the Muslim, we must expose their false hope. Anything short of this is contempt for their eternal fate.
