Allah and Elohim - Are they the same God? Part 9

The Day of Judgment

Bible tells us about the day of Judgment as a horrible day and pictures it as a day of wrath of God, but unfortunately Muslims are waiting for this terrible day expecting to get their reward and to get into heaven.  Let us look from the Bible and the Quran and visualize what the day of Judgment will be like and who will be going before the judgment seat of God?

As the name suggests "the day of Judgment" is a day when God will judge people. According to the pattern of this world itself we see that only those who break the law of Govt. are required to go to court and before the judge to get themselves convicted or acquitted - verdict of condemnation or verdict of acquittal So we can understand that the day of Judgment is the day in which people who broke the law of God will get their verdict and sentence. That is the reason Peter says in 2 Peter 2:9, "then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment,"

Quran also says that sinners will get punishment as we read in

Sura 44:39-41. We created them not except for just ends: but most of them do not understand.
Verily the Day of sorting out is the time appointed for all of them,- The Day when no protector can avail his client in aught, and no help can they receive,

And also in:

Sura 44:44-49, The food of the sinner! Like molten brass, it seetheth in their bellies As the seething of boiling water. (And it will be said): Take him and drag him to the midst of hell, Then pour upon his head the torment of boiling water. (Saying): Taste! Lo! thou wast forsooth the mighty, the noble!

So we can see that every person who is sinning will be going to hell fire and there is punishment from God for our sins.   So It is necessary that before leaving this world we have to get forgiveness of our sins.

And Quran also says that only those who are saved from the fire (hell) will be admitted in heaven as we read in

Al-Imran (The Family of Imran)
Sura 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.

But the question is, is there any way to get forgiveness of our sins in this world itself? Bible says yes, but Quran denies it as we read in:

Al-An'am (The Cattle)
Sura 6:16. "On that day, if the penalty is averted from any, it is due to Allah.s mercy; And that would be (Salvation), the obvious fulfillment of all desire.

Sura 6:17. "If Allah touch thee with affliction, none can remove it but He; if He touch thee with happiness, He hath power over all things.

So we can see from the above Quranic verses that a person cannot get forgiveness of their sins by any means nor can they know until the day of Judgment whether they are going to hell fire or to heaven. It all depends upon the mercy of Allah. 

But contrary to this, the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation says that we can get salvation and forgiveness of our sins and have eternal life through the shed blood of the Lamb of God.  In the Old Testament we read that God gave laws to Moses and showed how they can get forgiveness of their sins by the shed blood of lamb as we read in Lev 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."

But the sacrifice of animal was not a permanent solution for our sins and that is the reason why Jesus who is perfect Lamb of God came down in the form of a man and gave Himself as perfect sacrifice for our sins, so that we may never be in sin but come out of it and have eternal life. That we may never face the Day of Judgment as Jesus assured us in John 5:24, "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life."

Yes, a person who believed on Jesus and accepted Jesus as his/her personal Lord and Savior is not going to face the day of Judgment. But those who rejected Jesus will face the day of Judgment and will have to give answer to Jesus who is going to come and judge the world.  Contrary to it Allah did not promise heaven for his followers or believers nor did he promise forgiveness of sins in this world.  That is the reason Allah spoke about the Day of Judgment to keep his followers in the dark until the last moment then to face judgment... oh, what a deception!  

But my dear friend, you can have assurance of heaven in this world itself.  You can know for sure that your sins are forgiven.  You can know for sure that you are heading towards heaven while in this world itself.   David said in Psalms 32:1, "Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered."  Yes, if your sins are forgiven in this world itself then you are a blessed person that is why Jesus said in Mat 26:28  "For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins."

The Bible also says in John 3:16  "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.

My dear friend, God really cares for you and wants to forgive your sins so that you may never die nor perish and go to hell, nor face the Day of Judgment.  That is the reason Jesus gave Himself and shed His precious blood on the cross.  Not for His gain but for me and for you, He did that.  Will you mind pouring your sins at His feet? Will you come to Him and say, I am a sinner, please forgive my sins and give me eternal life?  If you will do that, He will surely wash your sins and give you eternal life.

After comparing Allah's quality and Elohim's quality we can see that Elohim/Yahweh God is ready to forgive all our sins and ready to give us eternal life but Allah has no power to forgive our sins so he promised Day of Judgment for his followers.  While Yahweh God says in Ezek 18:32  "For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies," says the Lord GOD. "Therefore turn and live!"

Again it proves that Allah and Elohim both are different Gods and have no match in their qualities and messages.
