Sabbath 23/5/41/120

Dear Friends,

This is a reminder that we had listed the details of the Qur’an or Koran in the New Moon Message of the Fourth Month at 2018-messages/new_moon_message_010441120_(14jun18).html

We have now listed the appendices that were not completed or loaded to the web at that time.  These are:

Commentary on the Koran: Myths and Fabrications in and about Islam

Commentary on the Koran Appendix 1:  Edits and Additions/Alterations to the Qur’an or Koran

Commentary on the Koran Appendix 2: Scripture Index.

Commentary on the Koran Appendix 3: Bibliography

Please update your notes and we need to reproduce a secondary boost updating and informing as many as we can of these details and the publications. We need them boosted as far as possible.

So also we need to promote the second edition of the Man of Sin and the Apostasy (No. 299E) which strikes at Antinomianism and the Man of Sin or Lawlessness which is at the url:

This antinomian doctrine strikes at the very basis of Christianity in the Law of God. It will be stamped out at the return of the Messiah but the people who are taken in by it may well lose their position in the First Resurrection unless they wake up to the deception.

We are now updating the web site this is the suggested draft of the update.  Comments are welcome.

Al Islam
The Surrender to God.

After the Ascension of Messiah and the death of the apostles and the Seventy after spreading the Churches of God, Satan began in earnest to undermine the faith (see also The Fate of the Twelve Apostles (No. 122B)).  

In the Second Century Satan introduced the worship of the god Baal and the goddess Easter in the Sun and Mystery cults, prevalent in the Mediterranean and the Middle East, into Christianity, and using Mysticism corrupted the faith. By the end of the Second Century the demons had introduced Sunday worship, and the Easter festival of the goddess; and the traditions of Attis, Adonis and Osiris and Mithras into Christianity in various levels and areas. They corrupted the understanding of the Nature of God introducing Binitarianism and then a form of Modalism.  At the end of the Fourth Century by 380 CE the Cappadocians had grafted the structure of the Triune God (of Rome) onto the corruptions and formulated the doctrine of the Trinity (see the paper Binitarian and Trinitarian Misrepresentation of the Early Theology of the Godhead (No. 127B)).  The Council of Constantinople in 381 adopted the false doctrine and it was ratified at Chalcedon in 451.  By 590 Pope Gregory I had declared the Holy Roman Empire as was prophesied in Daniel Chapter 2 as the Feet of Iron and Miry Clay.  That was to last for 1260 years to 1850.

In 570 CE the man Qasim ibn Abdullah ibn Abdul Muttalib was born into the tribe of the Qureysh at Mecca (see the papers Sons of Shem (No. 212) and also Descendants of Abraham: Ishmael (No. 212C) and Descendants of Abraham: Sons of Keturah (No. 212D)).

In 590 at the year of the declaration he was 20 and able to be inducted in the service of God. He married a woman 14 years older than he and served her family for a number of years.  She was of the Jewish Clan at Mecca that had adopted Christianity centuries earlier as a part of the early Sabbatarian Church of God.  In 608 he was taught the Scriptures by his wife’s uncle and baptised for receipt of the Ahmad or Holy Spirit.

In 610/11 CE before the Passover he was called by God through the Angel Gabriel to commence the warning to the Arab peoples at Mecca and in Arabia generally (see Introduction to the Commentary on the Koran (No. 001)). He became the head of the Muhammad which was the church council at Mecca (cf. Intro ibid). He was instilled with the Pillars of the Faith (Q001A).

The understanding of the early Judaic, Christian and Semitic peoples generally was the same (see the Commentary on the Koran: Prologue (QP)).  See also the Chronology of the Qur’an or Koran (Q001B).

The Prophet was given the Koran in a far different sequence than the numerical sequence in which it is traditionally listed numbering from Surahs 1 to 114. See the url
The sequence of its issue was done on an educational issue rather than a theological sequence. The Chronology is listed at Q001B above. The reasons of the Chronological sequence of issue and the theology are explained in the Summary of the Commentary on the Qur’an or Koran (QS).The Summary is issued in 7 Sections dealing with the sequence of the groups and where possible the sequence of issue and the history behind their issue. These are in five groups for audio purposes.

QSA  (Sections 1 & 2)
Section 1 takes the commencement of the training and Mission at Mecca dealing with the Very Early Meccan Surahs and the texts explaining the first elements of the Bible faith.
Section 2 deals with the Early Meccan Surahs after the First Hijrah of 613 to Abyssinia. Surah 19 Maryam was revealed at this time to enable the Church, under the Prophet’s cousin Jaffar, to prove their bona fides in seeking asylum from the Negus of Abyssinia and the Sabbatarian church there. Surah 20 Ta Ha was instrumental in calling Omar at Mecca in 613.

QSB (Section 3)
This text deals with the Middle Meccan Surahs and their increase in the declarations of the faith to the pagan idolaters at Mecca.

QSC  (Section 4)
Deals with the Late Meccan Surahs and the place of the Demons in the Host following on from the place of the 70 and the position and role of Noah.  The texts then go on to address the Divine Unity and the errors of the Meccans. The numbering in the sequence was also important.  These texts were to incite the Meccans further and force the Main Hijrah in 622.

QSD (Section 5)
This section deals with the Surahs revealed after the Flight or Hijrah to Medina (Al-Madinah) in 622.  These texts deal with the increased exposition of the Bible texts and the place of Christ in the Revelation.

QSE (Sections 6, 7 and Conclusion)
Section 6 deals with problems in the understanding of the Qur’an or Koran and their explanation (p. 56).

Section 7 and Conclusion deal with the place of Christ in the Koran, and the consequence of his rejection by the Hadith.

The text then goes on to explain the position of Satan and his removal as Morning Star and replacement by Christ. The Conclusion then shows what is to happen at the end of the age and for the millennial system and the Second Resurrection.

There are a great deal of Myths and Fabrications in and about Islam (Q001C) and concerning the Qur’an that needed to be addressed and some aspects we did not fully canvas.

One aspect is that there were no additions or alterations to the Qur’an or Koran which is utterly false.  These aspects are covered in the text Commentary on the Koran: Appendix 1: Edits and Additions/Alterations to the Qur’an or Koran (No. QS1).

Another myth was that the Scriptures had been lost as though God cannot keep track of His own Instruction Manual.  This blasphemous assertion is refuted by the compilation of the massive number of Scriptures that are referred to in the subjects themselves in the Koran which demands that anyone of the Faith study those Scriptures, which as Messiah said cannot be broken (Jn. 10:34-36). These texts of over 9000 Scriptures from all the texts in the Bible with the exception of Philemon and one other are listed in the Index of Scriptures (QS2).

The relevant bibliography is at Appendix 3: Bibliography (QS3)
No person can hope to study the Qur’an without a sound background in the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation and an understanding of the Plan of Salvation and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is only by obeying the commands of the Laws of God can one grow in understanding. As a result of the false teachings of the Hadith, most of Islam are consigned to the Second Garden of Paradise or Resurrection at the end of the millennial system. Any one that does not keep the Covenant and the Sabbaths of God (Surah 4:154) is consigned to the Second Resurrection.  Anyone that says that when they die they go to Heaven and others go to Hell is neither Christian nor Muslim, which are the same faith.  These people are idolaters and infidels.  They will not go to the First Resurrection (No. 143A). We will deal with them in the Second Resurrection and the Great White Throne Judgment (No. 143B).
