Isa al Masih – The Muslim’s ‘Jesus Christ’
Isa al Masih
So it’s happening. Muslims are having dreams and visions of something that looks like Jesus. Imagine that. If it was not for the Bible we would be none the wiser as to what was going on. Fortunately for those who do take the Word of God extremely seriously you will understand that we are in the end times, where each of the major world’s religions expects their Messiah/Christ to return.
* Buddhists: Maitreya is the name for the 5th Buddha
* Hindus: Krishna
* Islam: Isa al Masih (Jesus Christ), Isa ibn Miryam (Jesus son of Mary), Al Masih Isa Ibn Allah (Jesus Christ son of Allah)
* Roman Catholics await their Eucharist Christ (Jesus son of Goddess Mary),
* Jews await their Messiah (not realising that it’s Jesus Christ the Son of God). But the time is coming if not here already that Jews are being born again and accepting Jesus Christ the Son of God as their Saviour. Unfortunately many are also accepting the lies of the false Christ.
This false Christ that appears in all religions through out the ages has many names: Esa, Essa, Iesous, Jesus, Yashua, Iswara, Tammuz, Adonis, Horus, Deoius, Jupiter, Cain, Cupid, Mithra, Pepi, Bacchus, Hurcules, Dionysus, Yi, Balder, Quetzalcoatl, etc.
* Born again Christians await Jesus Christ the Son of God as mentioned in the Bible and the Bible only.
Morph all these ‘Christs’ together (excluding the genuine Jesus Christ that is ONLY FOUND IN THE BIBLE) you get the Cosmic Christ or just The Christ (Satan) who’s main calling card is Peace, Love and Unity. Also known as the Man of Lawlessness in the Bible. The one who comes to deceive the entire world under the disguise of peace and safety when in fact he has every intention of destroying mankind.
How do you tell the difference between Isa al Masih and Jesus Christ the Son of God?
The REAL Jesus Christ the Son of God CAN ONLY BE FOUND within the pages of the Bible.
John 14:6; Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me
Acts 4:12; “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”
What this actually means, believe it or not, is that no other impostor calling himself Jesus Christ mentioned in any other book BUT the Word of God/Bible can save you.
I was shocked to find that so called Christians are using the “Isa al Masih” or “Jesus Christ” mentioned in the Koran to help minister to Muslims that Jesus Christ does exist. It sounds like a brilliant idea, “I mean gosh Jesus Christ and Mary are mentioned in the Koran, we can use that to witness to Muslims”. No! You can’t! This is a fake Christ just like every single one I have mentioned above in that long list. You can’t use a satanic ‘Christ’ and try convert people to the Jesus Christ of the Bible. And this Christ will show you every sign and wonder you need to convince you that you are producing fruit. Fruit from a thorn tree.
If a Muslim accepts Jesus Christ as his Saviour and is born again, he/she will no longer be a Muslim they will be a born again Christian. Being a Muslim is not a culture, it’s a religion. Just like being a Christian is not a culture either.
What is the link between all these religions? Is it Jesus Christ? No! It’s the Blessed Virgin Mary – The Queen of Heaven. The Koran mentions Mary no less than 36 times. No other woman is mentioned in the Koran. Muslims visit the Shrine of Fatima. Fatima was the name of the daughter of Mohammed, the prophet of Islam. And Fatima is the name of the village (located in Portugal) that Mary ‘appeared’ in 1917 to 3 children. In fact visions of Mary within Islamic countries are not uncommon, in fact they are very common.
She (Mary) appeared daily for over a month in April of 1968 in a small Church in Elzaytoun district of Cairo in Egypt and was witnessed by thousands of Egyptians, both Catholics and Muslims and was even broadcast on International TV.
In other parts of Africa and Asia:
“When a statue of Our Lady of Fatima is carried through Muslim areas of Africa and India, hundreds of thousands of Muslims come. In two days half a million Muslims came to give their respects to this statue in Bombay, India.” [Dave Hunt, A Woman Rides the Beast, p. 458.]
“A statue of Mary, ‘Queen of Africa,’ contains both a cross and a Moslem crescent. This indicates the veneration that Muslims have for Mary.” [Judith A. Bauer (editor), The Essential Mary Handbook, p. 244.]
Some verses from the Koran mentioning Mary and or Jesus:
Koran 3:45 “When the Heavenly Hosts said, ‘Oh Mary! Verily, God gives you the good tidings by way of a Word from Him (Jesus Christ the word of God proceeding from him); his name shall be Al Masih Isa “Saviour” son of Mary (the Messiah Jesus), glorified in this world and at the end and he is of those who is nearest to God.”
Koran 4:171 “…verily Al Masih ‘the Messiah’ Jesus ‘Savior’, son of Mary is a messenger of God and God’s own words, which he conveys to Mary and Jesus is also a Ruwh ‘soul, spirit’ from God.”
Koran 3:46 “He will speak to the people, in the cradle and in manhood, and he will be one of the righteous.”
Koran 5:110 Then will Allah say: “O Jesus the son of Mary! Recount My favour to thee and to thy mother. Behold! I strengthened thee with the holy spirit, so that thou didst speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. Behold! I taught thee the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel and behold! … and thou healest those born blind, and the lepers, by My leave. And behold! thou bringest forth the dead by My leave. And behold! I did restrain the Children of Israel from (violence to) thee when thou didst show them the clear Signs, and the unbelievers among them said: ‘This is nothing but evident magic.’
Below is information found on the internet regarding the ‘Jesus’ found in the Koran and experiences Muslims are having with this ‘man in white‘:
Isa al Masih
Who is he? What does he teach? What about his life, death, and resurrection?
Hundreds of years before the birth of Isa al Masih (Jesus Christ), many prophecies are recorded in the Tawrat and Zabur (Old Testament) that forecast the coming of a Savior for all mankind. A panel of scientists with the American Scientific Affiliation goes on record as saying that the chances that one man could fulfill just 8 of the nearly 300 predictions pointing to the Messiah is one in 100,000,000,000,000,000. Truly it can be no other then Jesus of Nazareth. [Read More ]
At the appointed time in God’s plan, a young Jewish woman became pregnant. Yet this was no ordinary pregnancy, for this woman, Mary (Maryam), had had no sexual relations (though was engaged to Joseph). [ Read More ] The Bible and the Qur’an clearly teach the virgin birth of Jesus, so we know that Jesus must have been a truly special man with a God-ordained plan.
What was that plan? It was to bring peace to all mankind of every nation. [ Read More ]
Some skeptics argue that Jesus never existed historically. Yet historians Josephus, Suetonius, Thallus, Pliny the Younger, the Talmud, and Lucian all record his existence. Some believe he did not die on the cross, or that he was not raised again from the dead. But many eyewitnesses, some of whom were hostile to Christ, say that it is true. [ Read More ]
In fact, even today many Muslims from throughout the world are reporting that they have been visited in a dream or a vision by Isa al Masih, often coming as a man in white. In such dreams and visions, he tells of his resurrection and the fact that he is the only way to salvation. [ Read More ]
What did Prophet Isa teach about the Kingdom of Peace?
“Hazrat Isa al Masih (Jesus) is recognized by people of all religions as one who has promoted peace with his words and deeds and who has brought much peace to the world.” 1
The Kingdom of God
When Hazrat Isa lived on this earth, he came teaching about the Kingdom–the Kingdom of God. This kingdom does not divide along political, ethnic, sectarian or even humanly drawn religious lines. It is the Kingdom of God. You can’t look around and say with total accuracy that this person is in the kingdom and this person is not. Therefore we cannot say that the West is in God’s kingdom and the East is not; nor can we say that the East is in God’s kingdom and the West is not. Yes, there are indications about who is in the kingdom, but the kingdom of God is a kingdom whose total membership is only known to God. Each member of that kingdom is ultimately answerable to God. As a result many leaders today have been fearful of him. 1
How To Get In and How It Brings Peace
“First, entrance into God’s kingdom brings personal peace for the individual. Hazrat Isa taught that the way one gets into the kingdom is by admitting from his or her heart and lips that he or she don’t deserve entrance into the kingdom and by believing and following the way God has given to get entrance into his kingdom.
The reason why Hazrat Isa said we don’t deserve entrance into the kingdom is because of the fact that every human falls short of God’s standard of perfection and sinlessness.”
“Second, peace is shown by the individual members of the kingdom toward others around them.” 1
Peace and True Power
Hazrat Isa did this from a personal position devoid of political or economic power or the possibility of selfish human influence. He also died for the cause of peace. Because he refused to cause harm to others or encourage his followers to harm others, he willingly gave up his life even when accused unjustly. 1
PEACE AND OUR WORLD
Judging vs. Not Judging
In light of the present circumstances in our world today, the teachings of Hazrat Isa need to be seriously considered. He taught that each person must deal with his own faults before he tries to sort out the faults of others.
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the same measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, `Let me remove the speck out of your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother’s eye.” (Injil, Book of Matthew 7:1-5) 
Compassion vs. Aggression
Hazrat Isa words are not easy words to follow, but they are very important in maintaining peace in our world. For those who feel aggression toward others, Hazrat Isa’s words are applicable for them. For those who retaliate out of anger, Hazrat Isa’s words apply equally to them. God says through the Apostle Paul,
“Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord. ‘Therefore if your enemy hungers, feed him; if he thirsts, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.’ Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” (Injil, Book of Romans 1:17-25) 
Power vs. God’s Favour
The lack of peace in this world is many times a result of the fact that as human beings we have a wrong view of power and God’s favour. When Hazrat Isa lived on this earth, he had compassion on the people that were straying from God’s path.
“But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.” (Injil, Book of Matthew 9:36) 
Honour vs. Shame
We see that he had the right sense of power and assurance of God’s favour because he maintained that compassion to his (not their) own death and God rewarded him greatly.
“who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Injil, Book of Hebrews 12:2) 
Good vs. Evil
The gospel of Hazrat Isa is the gospel of peace because it strikes at the root of pride, jealousy, envy and greed, which are named in the Holy Bible as some of the worst sins.
“But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.” (Injil, Book of 1 Timothy 6:9-11) 
These are the sins that are listed right alongside sexual immorality.
“Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Injil, Book of Galatians 5:19-21) 
Pride vs. Humility
God himself, through the Hazrat Musa (Moses), warned his followers in the following admonition about the dangers of abhorring the evil that others do while smugly thinking that everything is right in their own lives. In the following passage God warns the man who despises idolatry and is among those who have gained victory over the idolaters to realize this, if his individual heart is not right with God he too will come under the anger and curse of God.
(for you know that we dwelt in the land of Egypt and that we came through the nations which you passed by, and you saw their abominations and their idols which were among them wood and stone and silver and gold); so that there may not be among you man or woman or family or tribe, whose heart turns away today from the Lord our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations, and that there may not be among you a root bearing bitterness or wormwood; and so it may not happen, when he hears the words of this curse, that he blesses himself in his heart, saying, `I shall have peace, even though I walk in the imagination of my heart’ as though the drunkard could be included with the sober. The Lord would not spare him; for then the anger of the Lord and His jealousy would burn against that man, and every curse that is written in this book would settle on him, and the Lord would blot out his name from under heaven. (Tawrat, Book of Deuteronomy 29:16-20)

I was standing at the cross beam, and I was looking to a small group of people who were standing at the top. They all wore long white clothing, but one of them was different. He was standing at the right side, and with his left hand he was leading the people through a door in the wall. Beyond the door was light, and I could not see what was in there. One moment I was standing in the dream, and the next moment I was seeing the cross from above…” [read more]

“…I went back to bed after a short prayer and saw a second dream. This time it was Jesus as I saw him in the Jesus film years ago and I had trashed his video. He was hanging on the cross, the nails were in his hands and feet, yet he was smiling at me and talking to me. Though he was dying he seemed so beautiful. The cross was huge and I seemed like a little boy. My neck was falling back trying to see the whole face of Jesus and suddenly a huge big circle of light came from above the cross and down upon me…” [read more]
“…I was swimming. It was very dark, without any stars in the sky. After swimming for a while, I stopped and looked up at the sky. Suddenly, I saw a star shining. I closed my eyes and made a wish. I said, ‘Morning Star, teach me the secret of life’…I kept having this dream for years almost every other month and this pattern continued until a few months after my conversion, when I read Rev. 22:16, which says, ‘I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star’…” [read more]
