Is Allah the same as Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? Is Allah truly the God of Heaven? Rick Warren believes that he is. Rick Warren, however, is not a Bible scholar. HERE is where he is Wrong:!!! The God of the Bible is He Who has chosen believers in Christ to be His Body, the Church from the foundations of the world: "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in Heavenly places in Christ. According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love." (Eph.1: 4). Immediately we recognize that Almighty God has a SON and He demands holiness and love, not plundering, murdering and killing; The God of the Bible is He Who "So loved the world that He gave his ONLY begotten Son, that whosever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3: 16); The God of the Bible testified of His Own Son: "If we receive the witness of men, the Witness of God is greater for this is the Witness of God which He hath testified of His Own Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: He that believeth not God, hath made Him a liar because he believeth not the Witness that GOD GAVE OF HIS SON. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and THIS LIFE IS IN HIS SON. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." (1 John 5: 9-12); The God of the Book (Holy Bible) has crowned Jesus Christ with glory and honour: "But we see Jesus, Who was made a little lower that the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man." (Heb.2: 9; Phil.2: 8); The God of the Bible has appointed a Day in which He shall judge the world in righteousness by that Man Whom He hath Ordained; whereof He hath given assurance unto all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead." (Acts 17:31); The God of the Universe, Almighty and All Knowing, the Ever Living One, has set Jesus Christ on His Own Right Hand: "And what is the exceeding greatness of His power to usward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He wrought in Christ, WHEN HE RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, and set Him on His Own Right Hand in the Heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world but also in that which is to come." (Eph.1: 19-22); The God of the Bible acknowledges ONLY ONE NAME as the saving name: "Neither is there SALVATION in any other: for there is none other name under Heaven given among men, whereby we MUST be saved," than by the Holy Name of Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God. (Acts 4: 12); The Eternal, Almighty God of the Bible loves ISRAEL, is married to the nation of Israel and will place a curse upon those who curse His people Israel. (Genesis 12: 3); Almighty God love Christians: "Jesus said, He that hath My commandments and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me, and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love Him and manifest Myself unto him....If a man love Me, he will keep My words, and My Father will love him, and We will come unto him." (John 14; 21-23); The God of the Bible loves everyone including all sinners: "For when we were yet without strength (hopeless), in due time Christ died for the ungodly. But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for the ungodly." (Rom. 5:6,8; John 3:16); Almighty God created man's mouth and brain. He can understand and speak all languages as is witnessed by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. (Acts 2: 4) Allah, can only understand Arabic and that is why all Muslims must learn to read and quote the Koran in Arabic even though many do not understand what they are reading or saying. Jesus understands all languages; Almighty God says that if you persecute the followers of Jesus, you are persecuting God: "And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus, and suddenly there shined round about him a LIGHT from Heaven: and he fell to the earth, and he heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou Me? And he said, WHO art Thou Lord? and HE said I AM JESUS whom thou persecutest..." (Acts 9: 1-18); The God of the Bible will punish ALL who kill Christians: "And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that had been slain for the Word of God and for the testimony they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long O Lord, holy and true, dost Thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto everyone of them, that they should rest yet for a little season..." (Rev.6: 9-17); "And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints and with blood of the Martyrs of Jesus..." (Rev. 13; 6; 20: 11-5) The good news is that God loves us all and invites everyone to receive Jesus Christ as personal Saviour and Lord. If you have not opened your heart to Him, please do it now while He waits for you with loving arms ready to embrace you. He say, Come unto Me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest:." (Matt.11: 28); There is a strong warning to those who subvert the truth. Here it is: "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is Antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath NOT the Father, but he that acknowledgeth the SON hath the Father also." (1 John 2: 22-23) - Pastor Max Solbrekken
