Deuteronomy 32:35a, "Vengeance is Mine, and recompense"

Once one of our family friends came to our home and was playing chess with my sister. I asked many a times to give me a chance to play but they said, "wait a minute, we may play a few more time then you can play." I waited patiently but finally I got annoyed seeing that my chance was not coming. Finally I pulled the Chess Board so that all the chess pieces fell here and there. They tried to play again and I did the same thing second time and repeated third time. And our friend got angry. At that time some construction work was going on in our house and there were some instruments of heavy metals lying there. He grabbed a cement thumper and when I saw it the very first thought came into my mind was that these are going to be my last moments in this planet earth. The other thought which came into my mind was that within a few moments my head is going to be crushed but thank God, he put it down on the Chess Board and the Chess Pieces. And it crushed the Chess Pieces and also the Chess Board badly.

Yes, this is the love of a human. One small mistake of yours could put you in great danger. One small mistake can be fatal and may cost your life.

Yesterday we heard about the death of Bandit Queen Phoolen Devi who was shot dead by some gunmen. She was an Indian woman who got married at the age of 11, but was kidnapped and raped by high cast villagers. And to take revenge she became a bandit and killed about 70 men. She was such an expert in her field that the police could not catch her until she surrendered herself. Now she is gunned down. This is our mind - the mind of taking revenge, the carnal mind.

This is the attribute of human nature to take revenge but on the other side we see the nature of God that is totally different from us. He is full of love and care. God wants us to behave with others with love and compassion. Jesus said in Matthew 5:39-41, "But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. "If anyone wants to sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also. And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two." And also in Matthew 5:44, "But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,"

God showed His great love towards us and sent His only begotten Son to die for us. He gave Himself for us so that we could get eternal life. Jesus shed His precious blood on the cruel cross while He did not need to do that. He never committed any sin but He became sin for us so that we may never be in sin but live a holy life. He went to the cross not because of His sins but because of our sins for which He died on the cross. Yes, He paid the price for our salvation by His own blood to take away our carnal mind and to give us the divine mind of Christ. If you want to go to heaven you need this mind and this life which is pure. Because the Bible says in Galatians 5:19-21, "Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 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."

Do you want to have pure and changed life so that you can go to heaven? Do you want to get rid of your carnal mind? If yes, then please pray this prayer with me:

Loving Jesus, I am a sinner and all my life I lived with resentment, bitterness, anger and all kinds of worldly pursuits. Please forgive and forget all my sins and give me a new life. I want to get rid of these things and want to walk in your holy ways and finally I want to enter into heaven. Please help me Jesus. I invite you today as my Lord and Savior. Please come into my life and become my Lord and Savior. I know that you are going to do this so I praise you. I give you all the glory. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.

Allah and Elohim - Are they same God? part 21

By Sherly Isaac

Exodus 20:15, "You shall not steal."

God gave Moses the 10 commandments and this is one of the commandments. The Bible also tells us that breaking the law of God is sin and those who break the laws of God will never enter into heaven unless they repent from their sins and turn to God. But we read in Hadith like this:

Volume 3, Book 41, Number 573b:
Narrated Abu Dhar:
Then he ordered me to stay at my place and went not far away. I heard a voice and intended to go to him but I remembered his order, "Stay at your place till I return." On his return I said, "O Allah's Apostle! (What was) that noise which I heard?" He said, "Did you hear anything?" I said, "Yes." He said, "Gabriel came and said to me, 'Whoever amongst your followers dies, worshipping none along with Allah, will enter Paradise.' " I said, "Even if he did such-and-such things (i.e. even if he stole or committed illegal sexual intercourse)" He said, "Yes."

This Hadith very clearly says that no matter what wrong you do, you will be going to heaven. How it is possible that the Holy God who forbade stealing in the Old Testament and also in the New Testament will suddenly give you permission to do all kinds of wrong things? When Adam and Eve sinned they did not steal or commit illegal sexual intercourse. It was simple disobedience to God and still God did not spare their lives. God punished them.

When God saw that people were unable to come out of their sins and were not able to live a holy life, He came down to save the whole mankind and gave Himself for us to die. He chose the way of cross to save us from hell fire and here comes Allah who is saying, "go ahead and live in sin but finally you will reach heaven." This completely and clearly shows that Allah is not the God of the Bible. Because the Bible says that, God is holy and also that, no unholy things will enter into heaven. We read in Hebrew 12:14, "Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:"

Yes, my friend, you can not enter heaven by committing sin but if you want to go to heaven you must repent from your sins and turn to God. There is only one place for sinners i.e. hell fire. Why lose your own soul, turn to Jesus who can wash away all your sins and give you a new life. Yes, Jesus will give you a clean life and also the assurance of heaven.
