LOOK TO THE FUTURE...TO WHAT WE SHOULD BECOME
FOR ACCORDING TO THE QUR'AN AND THE BIBLE
IS IT THIS ?
Men and brethren, what shall we do?
We are also meant to KNOW that God is with us.
38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 41Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.42And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 44And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. 46And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
Our belief in God is not meant to be "silent" with NO response from Him.
DO NOT LOOK TO THE PAST, WHAT WE WERE AND ARE STILL
Violent, seeking war, special diets, veils and beards, circumcision and special days of worship, this has all ended, we have been delivered from it. It is an old "half" message.All religious laws, including Sharia and Torah law has come to an end since Jesus Christ was resurrected and we are now under "faith that works by love".
WE ARE NOW ONE MEANT TO BE ONE NEW NATION UNDER JESUS CHRIST WHEN WE BELIEVE.
Not Greek, nor Jew, Arab or American. English or Iranian, Russian or Australian.Male of Female.We are all equal under Christ, both now,
and in the future literal
Kingdom that is "meant" to come.
And we are meant to begin it even NOW
Acts 2: 44-45 And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
And to extent we are doing the above in the western European and some other nations. Mostly because our democratic governments have overcome war in our own lands hopefully, and we have also have a welfare system that passes money via the Tax System from the rich or even slightly better off, to the poor, sick, or less able. It is also mostly Christian nations that are doing this. We should consider that most of the nations at war or that do not have any sort a welfare system are those at war or oppressed in some way by another Faith, or other oppressive or semi oppressive Political system. At present many of the worlds population want to come to these democratic Christian nations to benefit from the welfare state and the peace we have, yet neither we, nor they, realise that if we allow too much “multi faith” and multi cultural influence in our nations we will lose that consensus, that “agreement” in our societies, that we aim for peace, order and goodwill, according to the Christian principles that have BROUGHT this peace and support that they also want. If newcomers insist on following a faith that has brought disorder and oppression in their own land, they will bring the same problems here and it will gradually undermine our own principals and then we too will have war and poverty and greed and corruption by our leaders and others in power.
So it seems obvious to me that we have to get a consensus of ALL the world leaders to agree that democracy (rule of the many by the few) is to date the best means of Government. Although I think this will be superseded by Polity Governance (rule of the many by the many) with mostly Independent MPs and a One Party System with numerous referendum of the society by the internet. Together with improved basic education of Politics and the issues of Tax Spending from 11 years onwards.
The democracy is abused by some that are rich, but some think you are rich if you have a business for instance, this is not the case. You can have a business and be losing money. Most people of wealth want to be fair and often do much charity work, they also work hard at what they do and it is THEY that bring the jobs to us. But the welfare system is being abused by the British born "poor" and also those that try to come from poor nations and expecting the Welfare Tax systems to support unlimited numbers of immigrants. Yet these "poor" take drugs, have children when they cannot afford them and expect the taxypayer to feed and house them, have pets, drugs and alcohol and are often overweight yet go to food banks. It will not work this way. We ALL have to be responsible and behave properly. Britain is already under GREAT STRESS with the EU citizens and other citizens that have come. Eventually we will become as disordered and as poor as the nations they come from, because they want us to adhere to their culture when it is their culture that has caused their problems “back home”, and our Welfare System cannot sustain it. Already some cities in Britain have a British white minority in them. We have doubled the homeless figure in 5 years, but if people keep coming that is not our fault, but the fact that immigrants come and then do not leave, even though they have no job or home. This is why we must come out of the EU. We do not have enough school places, and some schools have 27 different languages spoken, some of these children need extra English teachers to help with their English. This takes money from Education budget, and 18% of new births last year were non British. This will double or triple in years come. The NHS is in a critical state, because we now have 3.3 Million EU citizens here needing homes, jobs, NHS care, schools and 300'000 new citizens each year extra. We now have a shortage of first time buyer homes, with 3.2 Million new persons, some of whom may buy 2 or more properties, this is also a logical outcome. Most of the other EU nations do not have such a thriving property market. So the issue is that the world has to have a strategy that looks at the pattern of democracy and the welfare state, that has abolished war so far, and see how this can be transferred to other nations, and we also stop the “sanctions” on some states if they agree to this aim, so that they too can prosper. BUT FIRST WE HAVE TO RESOLVE THE BELIEF SYSTEM OF SOCIETY, AND ESTABLISH WHAT THE MESSAGE OF GOD MIGHT BE WITHOUT THE ERRORS SO THAT THE DIVISION OF SOCIETY AND NATIONS WILL BE REMOVED.
But some of our Western societies have become “decadent” and this religious freedom (liberty) from all religious laws has caused us to “occasion to flesh” (see below), so to an extent the Muslims have the right idea about no alcohol or moderate dress etc, but it has to be by choice and education, and not to ban these things, but to teach moderation and self discipline. For we now have women who do not marry the Father, purposely getting pregnant, not intending to stay with him. Some Mothers have several children with a different Father, and we have numerous broken homes. This also is affecting our society as these children grow up. We have young people getting so drunk they are vomiting on the street, or taking drugs and collapsing on the street, or going abroad and causing fights and getting drunk. Or sleeping with numerous partners and getting diseases, or dressing in very revealing very seductive clothes that probably is too much really. We have people so overweight they cannot move. This was unheard of 30 years ago. Partly all these things are occurring because parents are not a stable influence in the lives of their children, have not been parented well themselves and do not know how to be parents and even do not have time to be parents because it is all about going to work and giving your children to someone else to care for. The Government systems are encouraging this. There is a bond and stability lost there I think.
There must be more education for children about “Life” generally and self discipline, and we need to have a more self disciplined society. I have covered some of these issues under the Heading The Reason For Terrorism on the side page head New Vision for Britain and the World and my 4th book yet to be written will be dealing with these issues.
AND WE ARE MEANT TO LIVE A CERTAIN WAY IF WE WANT THIS "LIFE".
AND WE CAN START THIS KINGDOM NOW. AS FOLLOWS;
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. 16This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another
The eventual Kingdom, or worldwide Government, when Jesus comes (if the Bible IS true) will be governed from Jerusalem, by Jesus Christ and those believers (called "saints" in the Bible) that have been resurrected with him and who are from ALL nationalities.
So no one need fear, but we all need to change and know what is in these 2 books properly, for there is also a belief in Christian and Muslim teachings that there will be a great "battle". If we know the Bible and Qur'an well, this does not HAVE to happen. But that is another story. I will not go into here. But do not wait for, or work towards, some great battle, it does not HAVE to happen. WE have control of what happens to the world.
And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron (disciplne); as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Isaiah 2: 1-5
The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.
I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
Daniel 7: 26-28
But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints (believers) of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. Hitherto is the end of the matter.
This is what the end result of THE ONE TRUE MESSAGE OF GOD really is,
if you know both the Bible and the Qur'an thoroughly.
NEITHER BOOK WILL "ADD UP" TO A CLEAR MESSAGE BECAUSE THEY BOTH HAVE CONTRADICTIONS AND INCONSISTENCIES IN THEM.
WHEN YOU HAVE READ THEM BOTH YOU WILL SEE THIS.
BUT THERE IS A LOGICAL CONSISTENT THEME TO BE FOUND.
WHICH IF TRUE, SHOULD BRING THE MIRACULOUS INTO OUR LIVES.
TO PROVE IF IT IS TRUE.
WHICH IT SUFFICIENTLY DID FOR ME.

1 Corinthians 20-28
But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept (died). For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
“For the earnest expectation of the creature (creation)
waits for the manifestation (revealing) of the Sons of God”
God established and created Israel in the time of Exodus in order to show us how to live, by gving Moses the 10 Commandments (which the Qur'an does not have in it) and to show his "Power". For nations worshipped idols (statues) and sacrificed children and humans, and lived life without rules.and with slaves and cruelty. The Jews are not "chosen", meaning "better than others" but "chosen" because God created them as a nation from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (renamed Israel) and his 12 sons, then made a spectacle of them with miracles during Exodue and later by the terrible things they have suffered since then, and particularly when Jerusalem was invaded and the Temple destroyed in 70 AD and the Jews "carried captive" (prisoners) to wander homeless throughout the world for centuries. Then in 1948 the state of Israel was established by the United Nations. The name Israel may mean "God prevails" and the existence of Israel and the Jews, who still celebrate the "Passover" which God commnded that they should always celebrate, may be a proof and evidence to us, that God exists, and that the events of Exodus really happened. (Please see Exodus 1-14 on Home page listing)
And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

Daniel 9: 20-27
And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God for the holy mountain of my God; Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation. And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding. At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to show thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision. Seventy weeks (70x7 years = 490 years)are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks , and threescore and two weeks (69 weeks =483 years) the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks (432 years) shall Messiah be cut off (killed), but not for himself: and the people of the (another) prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary (70 AD/CE the Romans destroyed the Temple on Temple Mount where the Gold Domed Mosque now is and took capitive to Rome The Jews and they were dispersed homeless and stateless worldwide thereafter until 1948); and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week (7 years) he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Israel is currently "desolate" perhaps as although the state of Israel has political control of Jerualem now, the Gentiles (Arabs and all other peoples not Jews) still have power to prevent full control without violence or sanctions occurring.
Jesus Christ's prediction below of the Temple destruction and dispersion of Jews worldwide 70 years later (70AD/CE) and prediction of worldwide trouble, which may be the affects of global warming.
Luke 21: 20-34
And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies (happened 70AD/CE)then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations (this happened 70 AD/CE) and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles (this is present day conditon of Israel. All non Jews are Gentiles)and until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth:(affects of global warming?) for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh (and do not fear, just be aware just in case it is true).And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Prediction of governments to come from the Prophet Daniel.
Some, maybe nearly all predictions, may have already passed.
Plus confirmation of the Government of God by his Son
with his "saints", or believers.
In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, and told the sum of the matters. Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea. And four great beasts (Kings/Governments) came up from the sea, diverse one from another. The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings:(possibly Babylon 609=539 BC) I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it. And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear (possibly Medo/Persia 539-331BC) , and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh. After this I beheld, and lo another (possibly Greek empire 331BC-168BC) , like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it. After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast (possibly the Roman Empire 168-476 AD) dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns (possible Europe or the world now divided into many governments). I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things. I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time (there is a period it seems where the governments and the world exists after these things, the "end" has not come yet) I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man (Jesus Christ) came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me.I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things. These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever. Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet; And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom (possibly Europe) are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time (3 and a half years, this man and time may already have passed). But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.Hitherto is the end of the matter
