Why believe Jesus is the Son of God and not just a prophet?

QUESTION: “Why believe Jesus is the Son of God and not just a prophet?”Shehab Muhammed

PRETEXT: Most within the Islamic faith will argue in favor of Jesus status as prophet and not the divine Son of God. This completely nullifies the nature of Christ. This is in complete opposition to the teaching of the New Testament – there is no reconciliation between Islam and true Christianity.

My Answer…

Because Jesus Christ came into the world to die for sin. If he were a mere mortal then he would have been sinful. Jesus Christ was without sin and was fully human and fully divine – He was a sacrifice without spot and blemish. If he were a mere mortal his atonement would been in vain.

What Is the Parable of the Fig Tree Really about?

“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.” – Luke 21:29-32

So Jesus just HAS to return in our generation, doesn’t he, according to the parable of the fig tree? NOPE, not at all. In fact the parable of the fig tree isn’t even about the nation of Israel being reborn in 1948 or 1967.

He could return in our generation, but it has nothing to do with what happened in 1948. Dispensationalists make much ado about political Israel being reformed. Their reformation they take as an innate proof and verification of their eschatology but it is begging the question…

The Lord Jesus Christ is not bound to the dispensational futuristic speculations of prophecy pundits.

There is a lot of bat guano swirling around these days about shemitahs, blood moons and the 70 year generation that ends in 2018. The reasoning is, Israel became a nation in 1948 and the parable fig tree states that Christ would return before the generation that saw the reformation of Israel passes away.

But it doesn’t say that. The only reason it appears that way is because the religious authorities have defined for you what the fig tree symbol represents in the parable.

The religious experts and ideologues of a certain persuasion would like you to believe certain things about the bible because it upholds their own system of power, control and self-preservation but that doesn’t make it true.

The Chapel is in the same boat with them. It’s all about gaming people with religious deception. The truth is, dispensationalism is a function of Zionism which is all about power and world domination. The Christian system of religion is being subsumed into an end-time system of apostasy and if you think the Chapel is exempt you are mistaken.

The Murray’s are heavily influenced by modern day dispensationalism and one of the “gems” of truth they give us is their interpretation of the parable of the fig tree. If you’ve studied with him for any period of time you will notice he has a lot to say about fig tree symbolism and how it relates to Israel and the end-times.

We are told that the fig tree always represents Israel in scripture and particularly in the parable. Does the bible explicitly state this to be the case all the time? No. Truth is the bible uses a symbol one time in this way, and another time that way.

In the 6th seal stars are cast to the earth as when a fig tree drops its figs… how does that have anything to do with Israel?

With many symbols people ascribe meaning to them that doesn’t exist. And one of the tricks of the religionist’s trade is to define the sheeple’s symbols for them. This is a form of mind control.

And many Christians accept it as given: the parable of fig tree has to do with Israel being reformed as a nation in 1948 or by Jerusalem being captured in 1967… since Israel is the fig tree – and nothing else!

But is that what the parable of the fig tree is about? I’m here to tell you that it has NOTHING to do with Israel in 1948. Let’s look at the passage:

“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.” – Luke 21:29-32

This is a characteristic of fruit trees: WHEN THEIR LEAVES COME OUT THE SUMMER (HARVEST) IS NEAR. When you see the leaves that is a sign that the time of fruit is near, so…

When you see the signs that Jesus spoke of that attend the Parousia and the end of the age; when you see the signs then know that his coming is near.

Nothing in there about Israel in 1948.

The generation that sees the revelation of the man of sin and the signs that accompany the great tribulation will not pass away, they will see Christ return.

William Cooper Exposes British Israelism & the NWO

The late William Cooper with incredible research and insight exposes the Shepherd’s Chapel and associated movements and teachings like the two adams, serpent seed, British Israelism and Christian Identity from the grave… and shows how the Chapel and related Identity movements are an emenation of the Rome, the London Crown Corporation and the British Empire. He shows the Illuminist Satanic conspiracy behind it all! Wake UP!

While I don’t agree with alot of Cooper’s spiritual views I do agree with him with what he presents about this regarding British Israelism and the occult…
