WHO IS ALLAH? ALLAH IS NOT THE GOD OF THE BIBLE - LLM

While many sincere and well-meaning, but MISGUIDED Christian pastors, preachers, and teachers, have argued that the word "Allah" is simply the Arabic word for "God", the facts are something quite different.

Even among Islamic scholars there is general agreement that the term "Allah" refers to a pagan deity before Islam came into existence under the leadership of Mohammed. The pre-Islamic Arab culture spoke of 360 gods of which "Allah" was simply just one of them.

The correct Arabic name for "God" is the word "Al-ilah". And it must be stated that it became a generic title for whatever god was considered the highest god.

EVERY Arab tribe used "Allah" to refer to its own particular high god. For example, the moon god called "Hubal" was the god to whom Arabs prayed at the Ka'aba and when they prayed they used the name "Allah".

Historians have said that "Allah" was the chief of the 360…

The Christian and The Great God and our Saviour, Jesus Christ - LLM

“And He is the Head of the Body, the Church; Who is the beginning, the first born from the dead; that in all things He might have the preeminence.”Colossians 1:18 .
We can only touch on the glories of our LORD Jesus Christ and the eternal relationships between this One who is called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace, and the redeemed sinner who is already seated with that glorious Savior in the heavenlies.Ephesians 2:6 . Isaiah 9:6 .
When we learn that The LORD Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is mentioned by noun and pronoun more than sixty-nine hundred times in the New Testament Scriptures, you see the impossible task of me trying to describe Him in our relationships in one short article. According to John 21:25 ,“even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written” concerning this One, who is called:
“The LORD of Glory.”1 Corinthians 2:8 .
“The Prince of Life.”Acts 3:15 .
“The Brightness of God’s Glory.”Hebrews 1:3 .
He was in th…

The Christian and the Christian's Heavenly Father - LLM

“For ye are the children of God by Faith in Christ Jesus”Galatians 3:26
Only Christians are the children of God, and only because of the Faith in and of, the LORD Jesus Christ. Children of God!
God is not some impersonal principle, or some unknown inanimate force. God is a living, personal God. Some religious people know Him as the Supreme Being, but His children know Him as God the Father. Ephesians 1:3 , 1 Peter 1:3 and 2 Cor. 11:31 .
“Neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him”Matthew 11:27 . “God is Spirit”John 4:24 . “God is light”1 John 1:5 . “God is love”1 John 4:8 . “Our God is a consuming fire”Hebrews 12:29 .
“This is life eternal that they might know Thee, the ONLY true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent”John 17:3 .
This excludes all other gods. The ONLY true God is known as “The God of Peace”Hebrews 13:20 . “The God of all Comfort”2 Cor. 1:3 . “The God of all Grace”1 Peter 5:10 . “The Father of Mercies” 2 Cor. 1:3 . …

The Christian is IN THE WORLD, but is NOT OF THE WORLD - LLM

“If ye were of the world, the world would love his own; but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you” John 15:19 .
I’ve heard someone say: “The Child of God has three great enemies, the external, the internal, and the infernal.” He was referring of course, to the world, the flesh and the devil. They are all three very real enemies, and we only have to look about us today to see how the Children of God are being affected and defeated by them.
When we read of the exploits and achievements of the faithful saints of God in the eleventh chapter of Hebrews, we find it is recorded by God concerning them, “Of whom the world was not worthyHebrews 11:38 . The world NEEDS the servants and faithful witnesses of God, but is NOT worthy of them.
The Children of God, when it comes to conduct, hope, and habit, should be altogether different from the people of this world. Whenever the difference is not noticeable in a Christian’s life, h…

How the Holy Spirit Works in the Christian - LLM

All true Christians believe in three Persons in one God‑head: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Three in One and One in Three, and the One in the middle died for me. The LORD Jesus Christ said, “Baptizing them into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”Matthew 28:19
The personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity, are clearly set forth in the Scriptures. Christ said, “And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter (or Paraclete).” John 14:16 . This is the same word translated “Advocate.” 1 John 2:2 . When Ananias lied to the Holy Spirit, he lied to GodActs 5:3-4 . “And the Holy Spirit said”Acts 13:2 . “The Holy Spirit Himself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered”Romans 8:26 .
In the Old Testament Scriptures the Second and Third Persons of the God‑head were latent; in the New Testament Scriptures they are patent. Christ, beginning with the Book of Matthew is patent; The …
