Your Islamic Future in Nazareth
23 January 2014
Recently this billboard spewing Islamic propaganda appeared in Nazareth, Israel, the hometown of Yeshua (Jesus, Isa) the Messiah. It is most definitely a sign of the times, and a foretaste of your Islamic future.

Articles about this billboard appeared on a number of Web sites this week, including Israel Today, Blazing Cat Fur, Jihad Watch, and Atlas Shrugs which wrote:
Nazareth: Qur'an billboard warns Christians not to "'exceed the limits in your religion' by believing in Trinity and divinity of Christ," from Israel Today, January 21. "Cease! It will be better for you." The threat is unmistakable. "Nazareth Christians Warned Against 'Slandering' Allah."

A large billboard hanging at a central point in Nazareth features a picture of an Israeli stop sign, along with the English translation of a verse from the Koran cautioning Christians (and Jews) to speak only the "truth" regarding Allah. The poster (and Koran 4:171) reads:

"O people of the Scripture (Christians)! Do not exceed the limits of your religion. Say nothing but the truth about Allah (The One True God). The Christ Jesus, Son of Mary, was only a Messenger of God and His word conveyed to Mary and a spirit created by Him. So believe in God and His messengers and do not say: 'Three gods (trinity)'. Cease! It will be better for you. Indeed, Allah is the One and the Only God. His Holiness is far above having a son."
I, for one, totally agree with the Muslims when they say that Allah has no son. Of course he doesn't! Because, as I have said many times in past articles, the god of the Qur'an and the God of the Bible are NOT the same God! If you are not clear on this critical truth, I strongly encourage you to read these previous articles: As I documented in these articles, the Qur'an contradicts the Bible so many times that it is impossible for them to both be true, and it is impossible for these two Gods to be the same God. Allah in NOT the Creator God; NOT the God of Adam, Abraham and Israel; NOT the God and Father of Yeshua the Messiah; NOT the God who revealed His name, Yahweh, in the Bible.

On the contrary, Allah is a demonic impostor, a false god who masquerades as an angel of light and only pretends to be the true God. Islam is NOT an Abrahamic religion like Judaism and Christianity, but a demonic religion which falsely claims that Abraham was a good Muslim and an Islamic prophet.

Regarding Abraham, what Yeshua said to the Jews of His day is very applicable to the Muslim Arabs as well (see Yeshua and the Islamic Leaders):
"If you were Abraham's children," said Yeshua, "then you would do the things Abraham did. As it is, you are determined to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. You are doing the things your own father does.

"You belong to your father, the DEVIL, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me!

"Your ancestor Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing My day; he saw it and was glad."

"You are not yet fifty years old," the religious leaders said to Him, "and You have seen Abraham?!"

"I tell you the truth," Yeshua answered, "before Abraham was born, I AM! ... I and the Father are one."

At this, they picked up stones to kill Him ... but Yeshua said to them, "I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone Me?"

"We are not stoning You for any of these," replied the religious leaders, "but for blasphemy, because You, a mere man, claim to be God."
When those who call themselves Christians buy into and promote this whopper of a lie — that Allah and Yahweh are the same God — they are cooperating with the demonic spirit of Islam. Christians need to stop running with the Devil and start to boldly proclaim the truth: Islam is a false, demonic religion, and Muslims have been lied to and deceived for the past 1,400 years.

As I wrote in Another Gospel, Another God, the Qur'an explicitly denies the divinity of Yeshua (Isa in Arabic) no less than 24 times (see that article for the Qur'an references). The Qur'an also denies the crucifixion and the resurrection, therefore denying that Yeshua died for the forgiveness of our sins. Obviously, these two books cannot be divine revelations from the same God. Nor can they both be true. Either Yeshua is the Son of God, or He's not. Either He was crucified and rose again, or He didn't. You can't have it both ways.

Yeshua Himself declared:
"The Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son, that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent Him." (John 5:22-23)

"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." (John 14:6)
And Yeshua's beloved disciple John later wrote:
And who is a liar? Anyone who says that Yeshua is not the Messiah. Anyone who denies the Father and the Son is anti-messiah (anti-christ). Anyone who denies the Son doesn't have the Father, either. But anyone who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. (1 John 2:22-23)
For the Qur'an to deny the Son 24 times proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the spirit behind Islam is anti-Son, anti-Messiah, anti-Christ, and anti-True-God. Because Islam denies the Son, it does not have the Father, the Creator God, the God of the Bible, either. It's as simple as that!

So now let's take a closer, line-by-line look at the Islamic propaganda on this Nazareth billboard:
O people of the Scripture (Christians)! So far, so good. Christians should be known as people of the Scripture.
Do not exceed the limits of your religion. This is OK too, if they meant "don't exceed the limits of Christianity." But what they really mean, as demonstrated by what they say after this, is "don't exceed the limits of Islam."
Say nothing but the truth about Allah (The One True God). Again, Christians SHOULD say nothing but the TRUTH about Allah. And the truth is, as I briefly outlined above, is that Allah is NOT the one true God, but a false god, a demonic impostor.
The Christ Jesus, Son of Mary, was only a Messenger of God This is a false statement. Yeshua was not "only" or "merely" a messenger of God. It IS true that He was the son of Mary and a Messenger of God, but He is much more than that: He is God Himself in a human body, the Son of God.
and His word conveyed to Mary and a spirit created by Him. In translator Abdullah Yusuf Ali's commentary on this verse, he claims that Jesus was: "a Word bestowed on Mary, for he [Jesus] was created by Allah's word "Be" (kun), and he was [see 3:59]; a spirit proceeding from Allah, but not Allah." Again, we have anti-christ teaching which is opposed to the truth. The entire New Testament proclaims the divinity of Yeshua, and therefore, since He is God, He was not created. The Nicene Creed gives and excellent summary of NT Christian belief.
So believe in God and His messengers On the surface this sounds good, but what they really mean is "believe in Allah and his messenger Muhammad."
and do not say: 'Three gods (trinity)'. Unfortunately, Islam has got it all wrong. The New Testament does not teach "three gods," but One God who has revealed Himself as three persons, which is termed the Trinity. As the above-mentioned Nicene Creed puts it: "We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified."
Cease! What they are saying is that Christians should stop being Christians, which is ridiculous! What would be much better would be for Muslims to stop believing the lies of Islam and to cease following the false god Allah. If Muslims don't want to spend eternity in Heaven with Father God, Yeshua the Son, and the Holy Spirit, then the only other place for them is Hell, completely separated from such a Triune God.
It will be better for you. As Pamela Geller noted above, this sounds a lot like a threat. Do they mean abandon Christianity and submit to Islam to have a better afterlife, or do they mean cease being a Christian in order to avoid Muslim persecution of Christians in this life?
Indeed, Allah is the One and the Only God. Indeed, Yahweh, the God of Israel, the Father of Yeshua, is the One and the Only God! This is a better Shahada! Indeed, Allah is a demonic impostor trying his best to deceive mankind and lead them to Hell.
His Holiness is far above having a son. Yahweh's holiness and humility is so great that He came to earth as a human baby, and died on the cross that we might be forgiven and spend eternity with Him as His beloved children. See Philippians 2:6-11. Such a profound display of love and holiness is far above anything Allah has ever done!
This billboard is just a small taste of your Islamic future. Just wait until Muslims start displaying them around the United States! What? You don't believe it can happen here? Better think again! Your Islamic future is closer (both in time and location) than you imagine!
