Allah and Elohim
- Are they the same God? Part 6
Holy God, Rivers of wine in heaven
Leviticus 11:45 'For I am the LORD who brings you up out of the
land of Egypt, to be your God. You shall therefore be holy, for
I am holy.
".....The soul who sins shall die."
God of the Bible is Holy and
there is no sin in Him. He can not tolerate any kind of sin whether
small or big. But according to Quran we can see that Allah does
not show any quality of Holiness. Also the Bible very clearly says
that punishment awaits for sinners as those who sin shall die. Yes,
for sinners there is eternal death. But the question is, "are
we all not sinners?" Yes, we are all sinners but there is a
way out to escape from eternal death and the punishment of God.
God gave Laws to Moses and said in Leviticus 17:11, "'For
the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you
upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood
that makes atonement for the soul."
It was for the same reason
that the Israelites used to sacrifice animals for the atonement
of their souls so that they may get life and live forever. That
was the reason why God said to Ezekiel in Ezekiel
18:32, "For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,"
says the Lord GOD. "Therefore turn and live!"
But from Quran we read a totally contradictory statement by Allah
as he says in The Noble Quran,
3:185, "Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on
the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only
he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will
have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is
but goods and chattels of deception."
verse Allah says that every soul shall taste death. It does not
distinguish whether sinners' or righteous' soul shall taste death
and also Allah does not promise life for his believers. On the contrary
Jesus promised life - Eternal life for His believers as we read
3:15-16, "that whoever believes in Him should not perish but
have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only
begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but
have everlasting life."
Not only that, when we read Quran we see some strange things. Quran
says that in heaven one man will get many beautiful virgin girls
for companion as we read in
44:51-55, "...Yes and We shall wed them to dark-eyed houris.
Sura 52:17-20, "They shall recline on couches ranged in rows.
To dark-eyed houris (virgins) we shall wed them..."
of wine in heaven:
47:15, (Here is) a Parable of the Garden which the righteous are
promised: in it are rivers of water incorruptible; rivers of milk
of which the taste never changes; rivers of wine, a joy to those
who drink; and rivers of honey pure and clear. In it there are for
them all kinds of fruits; and Grace from their Lord. (Can those
in such Bliss) be compared to such as shall dwell for ever in the
Fire, and be given, to drink, boiling water, so that it cuts up
their bowels (to pieces)?
Not only in this world we look to these things as abomination and
sin then how it is possible that God will allow these things in
heaven? When Adam and Eve sinned, their sin was simple disobedience
towards God. But God could not tolerate it and punishment came upon
them on this earth and on their lives. And these curses are still
in this world and on us. How is it possible that a holy God will
allow these types of atrocities in heaven?
Again it proves that Allah is not a Holy god nor has he anything
to do with the God of the Bible. God of the Bible is Holy and there
is no sin in Him. He loves those who repent and turn to Him and
leave their unrighteousness. That's why He says, "For I have
no pleasure in the death of one who dies," says the Lord GOD.
"Therefore turn and live!"
My dear brothers and sisters, you can live, you can have life in
you. A life that is eternal, that is not going to fade away anymore
but is everlasting. Yes, turn to almighty God and live forever.
If you want this eternal life please pray this prayer with me:
Dear Jesus I am a sinner and I know that with all my sins and sinful
nature I cannot get into heaven. I come before you and confess all
my sins to you. Please forgive all my sins and wash me with your
precious blood which was shed on the cruel cross. Lord Jesus I invite
you in my life as my Lord and Savior. From now on please lead me
into your ways and when I finish my course in this world please
take me into heaven. Thank you Jesus for hearing this prayer. I
pray in Jesus name, Amen.
