Israel is the name of the Prophet Jacob, son of Isaac, son of Abraham. Jews are the descendants of Jacob. This is the only nation which is the generation of prophets. The Land where Jews live is called the blessed land and Jerusalem as “The Holy Land”. This is a tiny nation and a small Kingdom, which is ruling the world. In ancient times other kingdoms of polytheist nations tried to oppress Jews by making them slaves, but whenever Jews called upon their God – YHWH in Heaven, He helped them and gave them freedom. Israel is the only nation whose identity is written in the Holy Books of religions.
The Holy Bible and Israel:
“Israel” is mentioned in near about 2,294 verses of the Holy Bible. Israel is the son of Isaac and the grandson of Abraham. It is written:
Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there. And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved. (Genesis 32:28-30)
YHWH Blessed Israel and Joseph in Egypt:
And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen; and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied exceedingly. Genesis 47:27
Israel said unto Joseph, Behold, I die: but God shall be with you, and bring you again unto the land of your fathers. Genesis 48:21
Slavery in Egypt:
The children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them. Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land. Exodus 1:7-10
Moses and Egypt:
Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them. Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt. And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt? And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain. Exodus 3:9-12
YHWH gave His Mandate To Moses for The Children of Israel:
“And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy harvest. And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and stranger: I am the LORD your God.
Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another. And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.
Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning. Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the LORD. Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour. Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour: I am the LORD.
Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him. Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD. (Leviticus 19:9-18)
End Times and The Holy Bible:
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. Acts 2:17-24
The King of The Jews:
Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. John 12:13
But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: Acts 9:15
And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: Romans 11:26
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: Hebrew 8:10
He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, 10 but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. 2- Timothy 1:9-10
2- Timothy 2:8-13 “Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel, 9 for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God’s word is not chained. 10 Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.
11 Here is a trustworthy saying:
If we died with him,
we will also live with him;
12 if we endure,
we will also reign with him.
If we disown him,
he will also disown us;
13 if we are faithless,
he remains faithful,
for he cannot disown himself.
And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. Revelation 7:4
And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: Revelation 21:12
The Quran and Israel:
The Quran is also called Koran, Its the book of muslims in the religion of Islam. The Koran is divided into 114 chapters called suras (Surah). The following are translations of passages found in these suras that are related to Israel (Jews). We are sharing here so the readers can know what the religion of islam says, because The Holy Bible says in John 1:5 “The Light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”
“O children of Israel! call to mind My favor which I bestowed on you and be faithful to (your) covenant with Me, I will fulfill (My) covenant with you; and of Me, Me alone, should you be afraid. The Quran (The Cow 2.40)
“O children of Israel! call to mind My favor which I bestowed on you and that I made you excel the nations.” The Cow 2.47
Extremists Muslims are against Israel as many Palestinians and Persians are, but according to the Quran, The children of Israel (Jews) are the chosen nation as its written in Torah and The Gospel (Holy Bible).
The Cow 2.62 “Surely those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and there is no fear for them, nor shall they grieve.
The Cow 2.83 “And when We made a covenant with the children of Israel: You shall not serve any but Allah and (you shall do) good to (your) parents, and to the near of kin and to the orphans and the needy, and you shall speak to men good words and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate. Then you turned back except a few of you and (now too) you turn aside.
The Cow 2.88 “And they say: Our hearts are covered. Nay, Allah has cursed them on account of their unbelief; so little it is that they believe.
The Cow 2.98 “Whoever is the enemy of Allah and His angels and His apostles and Jibreel and Meekaeel, so surely Allah is the enemy of the unbelievers.
The Cow 2.111 “And they say: None shall enter the garden (or paradise) except he who is a Jew or a Christian. These are their vain desires. Say: Bring your proof if you are truthful.
The Biggest Accusation against Jews and Christians:
Christians are followers of Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ was a Jew, His 12 Disciples were Jews, Christians follow the Messiah of the Jews “Jesus Christ” and they believe in The Torah and The Gospel of Torah. But The quran claims and accuses Christians by saying “Jews do not follow any thing good” while Christians love Israel and Torah is the foundation of the Gospel. Jews are waiting for the Messiah, While Christians believe Jesus Christ is the Messiah and there are many Jewish Christians (Those Jews who believe Jesus Christ is The Messiah).
The Cow 2.113 “And the Jews say: The Christians do not follow anything (good) and the Christians say: The Jews do not follow anything (good) while they recite the (same) Book. Even thus say those who have no knowledge, like to what they say; so Allah shall judge between them on the day of resurrection in what they differ.
The Cow 2.120 And the Jews will not be pleased with you, nor the Christians until you follow their religion. Say: Surely Allah’s guidance, that is the (true) guidance. And if you follow their desires after the knowledge that has come to you, you shall have no guardian from Allah, nor any helper.
Here is another contradiction, The writer of the Quran always tried to relate islam with Judaism and Christianity by mentioning the names of Jewish Prophets (Moses, David, Solomon) and Jesus Christ. Here in The Cow 2:10 Allah is ordering muslims to not follow the Christians and Jews. Now see what the Quran Yunus 10:94 “So if you are in doubt, [O Muhammad], about that which We have revealed to you, then ask those who have been reading the Scripture before you. The truth has certainly come to you from your Lord, so never be among the doubters.”
The Cow 2.121 “Those to whom We have given the Book read it as it ought to be read. These believe in it; and whoever disbelieves in it, these it is that are the losers.
Blessed Among Nations:
The Cow 2.122 O children of Israel, call to mind My favor which I bestowed on you and that I made you excel the nations.
The Congregation 62.6 Say: O you who are Jews, if you think that you are the favorites of Allah to the exclusion of other people, then invoke death If you are truthful.
In the other verse Allah is saying you are made excel the nations and favored nation, in other verse Its questionable.
The Cow 2.135 “And they say: Be Jews or Christians, you will be on the right course. Say: Nay! (we follow) the religion of Ibrahim, the Hanif, and he was not one of the polytheists.
AL-Imran 3.67 Ibrahim was not a Jew nor a Christian but he was (an) upright (man), a Muslim, and he was not one of the polytheists.
The Cow 2.140 Nay! do you say that Ibrahim and Ismail and Yaqoub and the tribes were Jews or Christians? Say: Are you better knowing or Allah? And who is more unjust than he who conceals a testimony that he has from Allah? And Allah is not at all heedless of what you do.
(Here again the writer of the Quran is mentioning “the religion of Abraham” Can we ask muslims what was the religion of Abraham. The Truth is Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David, Solmon they follow the same belief. God didn’t create any religion and Adam worshiped God. Religions are man made and they worship false gods. Jews are by generation, the generation of true prophets and Christians are by faith in The God of Israel and His Word (Jesus Christ). This is foolishness to say Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were Jews or Christians. Jews never claim Abraham was a Jew, but they say we are the children of Abraham. So it clearly shows the writer has failed to prove that its a revelation, because if it was a revelation from God there will be no mistakes because The True God knows Abraham is the grand-father of Israel and Jews are the descendants of Israel. While the author of the Quran does not know these facts and never read the Holy Scripture of Torah).
Food in Torah and The Quran:
The House of Imran 3.93] All food was lawful to the children of Israel except that which Israel had forbidden to himself, before the Taurat was revealed. Say: Bring then the Taurat and read it, if you are truthful.
The Cattle 6.146] And to those who were Jews We made unlawful every animal having claws, and of oxen and sheep We made unlawful to them the fat of both, except such as was on their backs or the entrails or what was mixed with bones: this was a punishment We gave them on account of their rebellion, and We are surely Truthful.
Muslims call the lawful food as “Halal food” but they eat forbidden food. Muslims do not eat pig which is forbidden in Torah but they eat camel, rabbit, hare and they drink camel urine. They make jokes to hindus for drinking cow urine but they drink camel urine.
Narrated Anas: Some people from the tribe of ‘Ukl came to the Prophet and embraced Islam. The climate of Medina did not suit them, so the Prophet ordered them to go to the (herd of milch) camels of charity and to drink, their milk and urine (as a medicine). They did so, and after they had recovered from their ailment (became healthy) they turned renegades (reverted from Islam) and killed the shepherd of the camels and took the camels away. The Prophet sent (some people) in their pursuit and so they were (caught and) brought, and the Prophets ordered that their hands and legs should be cut off and that their eyes should be branded with heated pieces of iron, and that their cut hands and legs should not be cauterized, till they die. Sahih Al-Bukhari Vol. 8, Bk. 82, No. 794.
Torah in Holy Bible
“Nevertheless, among those that chew the cud or part the hoof, you shall not eat these: The camel, because it chews the cud but does not part the hoof, is unclean to you. And the rock badger, because it chews the cud but does not part the hoof, is unclean to you. And the hare, because it chews the cud but does not part the hoof, is unclean to you. And the pig, because it parts the hoof and is cloven-footed but does not chew the cud, is unclean to you.” (Leviticus 11:4-7)
The Value of Torah (Jews & Christians):
The Quran 5.18] And the Jews and the Christians say: We are the sons of Allah and His beloved ones. Say: Why does He then chastise you for your faults? Nay, you are mortals from among those whom He has created, He forgives whom He pleases and chastises whom He pleases; and Allah’s is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and to Him is the eventual coming.
The Dinner Table 5.44] Surely We revealed the Taurat in which was guidance and light; with it the prophets who submitted themselves (to Allah) judged (matters) for those who were Jews, and the masters of Divine knowledge and the doctors, because they were required to guard (part) of the Book of Allah, and they were witnesses thereof; therefore fear not the people and fear Me, and do not take a small price for My communications; and whoever did not judge by what Allah revealed, those are they that are the unbelievers.
Then in the same Surah, again Allah (or author of Koran) is telling them to not be a friend of Jews and Christians.
The Dinner Table .51] O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.
The Dinner Table 5.69] Surely those who believe and those who are Jews and the Sabians and the Christians whoever believes in Allah and the last day and does good– they shall have no fear nor shall they grieve.
The Dinner Table 5.82] Certainly you will find the most violent of people in enmity for those who believe (to be) the Jews and those who are polytheists, and you will certainly find the nearest in friendship to those who believe (to be) those who say: We are Christians; this is because there are priests and monks among them and because they do not behave proudly.
The Holy Land in Quran and Holy Bible:
The Quran 7.137 And We made the people who were deemed weak to inherit the eastern lands and the western ones which We had blessed; and the good word of your Lord was fulfilled in the children of Israel because they bore up (sufferings) patiently; and We utterly destroyed what Firon and his people had wrought and what they built.
The Quran 19.58 These are they on whom Allah bestowed favors, from among the prophets of the seed of Adam, and of those whom We carried with Nuh, and of the seed of Ibrahim and Israel, and of those whom We guided and chose; when the communications of the Beneficent God were recited to them, they fell down making obeisance and weeping.
The Quran 20.80 O children of Israel! indeed We delivered you from your enemy, and We made a covenant with you on the blessed side of the mountain, and We sent to you the manna and the quails.
The Quran 17.104 And We said to the Israelites “Dwell in the land, and when there comes the promise of the Hereafter, We will bring you forth in [one] gathering.”
But muslims are against Jews, and they want to conquer the Holy Land, while the author of the Quran in his time didn’t know that it will be a political gain for Palestinians muslims or we can say that time Palestinians were not muslims when the author wrote the Quran. Now these Polytheistic religions converted into Islam. So Majority of them want that the land should be given to Palestinians but few muslims follow the quran.
“I will plant ISRAEL in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them,” says the LORD your God.” Amos 9:15
Ezekiel 37:21 “… the Sovereign Lord says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land.”
Deuteronomy 34:4 “Then the Lord said to him, “This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob …”
Jesus Christ in Quran:
The Quran 3.49 And (make him) an apostle to the children of Israel: That I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, that I determine for you out of dust like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird with Allah’s permission and I heal the blind and the leprous, and bring the dead to life with Allah’s permission and I inform you of what you should eat and what you should store in your houses; most surely there is a sign in this for you, if you are believers.
The Quran 5.72 Certainly they disbelieve who say: Surely Allah, He is the Messiah, son of Marium; and the Messiah said: O Children of Israel! serve Allah, my Lord and your Lord. Surely whoever associates (others) with Allah, then Allah has forbidden to him the garden, and his abode is the fire; and there shall be no helpers for the unjust.
The Quran 5.110 When Allah will say: O Isa son of Marium! Remember My favor on you and on your mother, when I strengthened you I with the holy Spirit, you spoke to the people in the cradle and I when of old age, and when I taught you the Book and the wisdom and the Taurat and the Injeel; and when you determined out of clay a thing like the form of a bird by My permission, then you breathed into it and it became a bird by My permission, and you healed the blind and the leprous by My permission; and when you brought forth the dead by My permission; and when I withheld the children of Israel from you when you came to them with clear arguments, but those who disbelieved among them said: This is nothing but clear enchantment.
The Quran 61.6 And when (Jesus Christ) Isa son of Marium said: O children of Israel! surely I am the apostle of Allah to you, verifying that which is before me of the Taurat (Torah) and giving the good news of an Apostle who will come after me, his name being Ahmad, but when he came to them with clear arguments they said: This is clear magic.
The Quran 61.14 O you who believe! be helpers (in the cause) of Allah, as~ Isa son of Marium said to (his) disciples: Who are my helpers in the cause of Allah? The disciples said: We are helpers (in the cause) of Allah. So a party of the children of Israel believed and another party disbelieved; then We aided those who believed against their enemy, and they became uppermost.
Prophet-hood and Israel:
The Quran 22.17 Surely those who believe and those who are Jews and the Sabeans and the Christians and the Magians and those who associate (others with Allah)– surely Allah will decide between them on the day of resurrection; surely Allah is a witness over all things.
The Pilgrimage 22.40 Those who have been expelled from their homes without a just cause except that they say: Our Lord is Allah. And had there not been Allah’s repelling some people by others, certainly there would have been pulled down cloisters and churches and synagogues and mosques in which Allah’s name is much remembered; and surely Allah will help him who helps His cause; most surely Allah is Strong, Mighty.
The Quran 45.16 And certainly We gave the Book and the wisdom and the prophecy to the children of Israel, and We gave them of the goodly things, and We made them excel the nations.
After these verses, muslims have no evidence that can be in their favor, because it clearly states That God gave them THE BOOK, THE WISDOM & THE PROPHECY, and Made them Excel the Nations.
For Jewish and Christians A Prophet is a chosen Person by God, an individual who has supernatural and divine power of God to speak about the future. The message that the prophet conveys is called a Prophecy. In Hebrew, the word נְבִיא (navi), “spokesperson”, traditionally translates as “prophet”. The second subdivision of the “Torah, Nevi’im, Ketuvim”, is devoted to the Hebrew prophets. The meaning of navi is perhaps described in Deuteronomy 18:18, where God Almighty said, “…and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.”
A Prophet is one who prophecies and shows miracles. The Prophet of Islam doesn’t prophecy and didn’t show a single miracle. All true Prophets read the old Prophets Books & follow, because the Revelations from God always gives knowledge about the Future. This shows the bondage of the True prophets with each other and all their relationships with God and the proper way of revelations to understand the different periods.
A Apostle is a Chosen Person by Jesus Christ (Word of God) when The Word of God was in a human body. There are 12 Apostles who were chosen by Jesus Christ “Messiah of the World”. After his resurrection, Jesus Christ sent eleven of them (minus Judas Iscariot) by the Great Commission to spread his teachings to all nations. Apostle Paul (Saul of Tarsus), not one of the twelve but a Later convert, ” He is the apostle of the Gentiles”[Romans 11:13].
Deuteronomy 13:1-3 “If ever you have among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams and he gives you a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder takes place, and he says to you, Let us go after other gods, which are strange to you, and give them worship; Then give no attention to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God is testing you, to see if all the love of your heart and soul is given to him.” Amen
Deuteronomy 18:21-22 “And if you say in your hearts, How are we to be certain that the word does not come from the Lord? When a prophet makes a statement in the name of the Lord, if what he says does not take place and his words do not come true, then his word is not the word of the Lord: the words of the prophet were said in the pride of his heart, and you are to have no fear of him.”
1st. Prophet hood is Just from the descendants of Jacob. Other nations belong to gentiles worshiper of false gods, religions with false teachings of killing, without law, lover of sin, slavery and adultery. So from Other Nations no one can be any prophet. Therefore all prophets belong to Israel.
2nd. Even if a prophet belongs to Israel and from the generation of Jacob. Then there are 2 types of Prophets. FALSE PROPHETS / TRUE PROPHETS
3rd. There should be any prophecy then a man can be a Prophet. But Prophet of Islam is not from the descendant of Jacob and There is no prophecy by the Prophet of Islam. Muslims do not know the meaning of A Prophet or A Apostle, because they never studied the Holy Torah and The Holy Gospel.
Matthew 7:15-19 “Be on the watch for false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inside they are cruel wolves. By their fruits you will get knowledge of them. Do men get grapes from thorns or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree gives good fruit; but the bad tree gives evil fruit. It is not possible for a good tree to give bad fruit, and a bad tree will not give good fruit. Every tree which does not give good fruit is cut down and put in the fire.”
“He remembers His covenant forever, the word He commanded, for a thousand generations, the covenant He made with Abraham, the oath He swore to Isaac. He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree, to Israel as an everlasting covenant: ‘To you I will give the land of Canaan as the portion you will inherit.” Holy Bible Psalms 105:8-11
