UI – Part 127 – Allah – The Father of Jesus?


The Virgin Birth of Jesus

The Quran recognizes the virgin birth of Jesus. Mary was a virgin. “Allah has chosen thee and purified thee and chosen thee above the women of the world.” (Sura 3:42) In 3:45 we read, “Allah gives thee good news…whose name is the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary….” Mary asked, (Sura 3:47), “My Lord, how can I have a son and man has not yet touched me?” The answer (3:47), “…Allah creates what He pleases. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, Be, and it is.” So in the Quran god (Allah) breathed life, His life, into the Virgin Mary. Why, because He can do all things.

Much of this Blog comes from a prior UI – Part 96 – Why A Virgin?

Have the Muslims ever asked, knowing Jesus was born of a virgin, why, why a virgin? I am going to provide the answer. The polluted DNA strain of man is in all of us. The only way for Jesus to be perfect, in human form & divine, was to not have the human stain of DNA corrupt his nature. Thus his birth had to be special, to be without flaw. Jesus provided the perfect example, the righteous example, to mankind. It was the only way Allah, God, could introduce himself into the culture of mankind. God’s perfect strain of DNA was mixed in, purifying that which was in Mary, and resulted in a flawless servant to all of us.

Jesus is the only Muslim Prophet (Isa) born of a virgin. He was pure, free of the sin of man, the weakness inherent in humans. You can say it; he was divine.

Man knew (and knows) his nature was/is flawed. Even when asking forgiveness the flaws of man remain. The stain can never be removed. God often used flawed people for his purpose, but in the case of Jesus his perfection was used as an example to see and know God.

Son of God

That is why Allah, God, gave us all the ‘good news’ – Sura 3:45. “Surely Allah gives thee ‘good news’… whose name is the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary.” Jesus was born of a holy purified DNA – not the DNA as we know it. It was that of God. This is also Biblical. God was the ‘good news’ in the form, or attribute, of Jesus. The difference, Muslims say Jesus is not the son of Allah. Logic suggests otherwise. Allah made it possible for Mary to have a son. He may not have impregnated Mary as does man, but makes clear (3:47) …Allah creates what he pleases.” Jesus, the perfect Prophet for Muslims, is the Redeemer for Christians as God was the Father and the two are one, Jesus the attribute of God as implementor. The words of Jesus, as Prophet and Savior, make clear God’s desires for mankind. It was God speaking those words.

Jesus

Christians call Jesus, ‘Christ’, deriving from that their name as ‘Christ-followers’, or ‘Christians’. God made his life possible ‘creating what he pleases’ and doing so for the purpose of saving mankind. Muslims call him Prophet Isa for the good life he led, seeing his ‘works’ as justification, and as an example. It was not the Love of the Father, but his purity of life-led, a perfect life which only the divine could lead, that guides the Muslim.

Christ said, “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” So if you listen to Christ’s words, if you hear them and if you receive them in your heart, you know he knows we are all, all of humanity, flawed, corrupted, weak, easily tempted, exposed to freedom and needing to deal with this earthy world. This is prophetic speak from a Prophet, from Isa.

To be a person of God, to have a relationship with God, is to be not of this world, but of His world, recognizing the fact we do live in this world. 

Original Sin

Not believing in original sin, as is the case for Muslims, does not excuse them from the corruption of man or the world or from that which freedom suggests. Even in their less than free areas, areas under Islamic (Sharia) Law, there is much that takes place that is sinful. In one dialog with a Muslim the statement was made that humans are not born ‘sinful’ but ‘weak.’ The weakness makes them subject to the temptations of the free world, the free-will society. If born weak, to me, that is the same as having a sinful nature, ‘subject to the temptations of the free world.’ It may be a semantic issue, but one about which polemics abound.

How can sin not be inherent (that is the skeptic, the doubter, the ‘Thomas’ in me speaking). We are taught to be ‘good’; the same goes for the Muslim. If their goodness is to be obtained from the Quran, teaching is necessary to clarify the parameters of ‘goodness’ and turn the heads of the students towards Sharia Law and Allah. Muslims must first learn the Quran and Hadiths to be good according to Allah and the Prophet (not born of a virgin) Muhammad.

Original sin exists in all, in my reasoned opinion, no matter the semantics, to include Muslim, Jew, Christian and others. We are no different in the temptations we face and the all too often acceptance of the evil practices that can result. It is when we recognize our corrupted condition, when we face our failings and fall before God, asking his forgiveness, and realize that God himself accepted our punishment for our sins committed past, present and future, by dying on the cross in our stead. We repent and are thankful for the Grace and Salvation this perfect God gave as a gift to all mankind. We just must repent, ask forgiveness, and follow him.

The Answer

Enough on sin. Back to the Son of God. Christ understood man and sin and the weakness we all share. He knew also that we cannot lead a perfect life in total obedience to God. The Laws are rigid and compliance impossible. So God took the form of man, lived among men, divine, a child of God (of Allah) and after preaching, spreading His word, making known His capabilities, he was condemned by officials to die, he knew what would happen, he fulfilled prophesy and accepted the punishment for the sins of mankind, it was his opportunity to wipe the slate clean for those who believe in God by making the ultimate substitutional sacrifice. He was punished for all the crimes, the weakness of mankind. He made possible those who believe in Him, accept His Grace, recognize and are repentant of their sinful life, to receive forgiveness and be saved for eternity.

God needed to come to earth, to spend time in this pagan world, to be known by men and to demonstrate what no man on his own can ever accomplish. He was born of a virgin to insure purity and freedom from the sinful gene of man. He served others. He died a horrific death, taking our place on the cross. He rose from death to prove that He not only overcame the sins of man, but death, restoring spiritual life to those who believe in Him. The Holy Spirit is that spiritual life dwelling within believers. His divine presence, yet as a human, could only be made possible as a child of a virgin. Thus the Son of God.

Allah – The Father of Jesus?

So what is the answer – Is Allah the Father of Jesus? God is!

Grace and Peace

  1. Jesus is the only Muslim Prophet (Isa) born of a virgin. He was pure, free of the sin of man, the weakness inherent in humans. You can say it; he was divine. -This is ur word

    1st point i want to say is jesus not the only person in islam born of a virgin, this is due to the fact that adam born without a father and mother(this is more pure from the jesus). adam in the scripture(al-quran n bible) was state as the 1st human made by ALLAH. you can’t deny this.

    2nd point is eventhough Mary is a virgin human, but she still have a sin that her get from the past(original sin). so, HOW CAN JESUS CAN FREE FROM THE SIN THAT HAS CARRIES FROM MARY??? then, what i can say that jesus actually not pure, not free of the sin of man. This is what have stated in christianity. if you deny that Mary dont have a sin, then the original sin was not exist.

    can u tell me the truth??? bcoz im still searching the true religion.

    1. Adam and Eve – If Jesus was Divine, Why not Adam?

      (An answer to your question)

      Was Adam divine as was Christ? You raise an interesting question. Indeed as the first man Adam was born without a mother or Father. If my polemic is correct about Christ and the Virgin Mary, that Jesus was born without sin then Adam too was born without sin. This I would agree with. Eve was born out of Adam, created from a rib. It is the story related in the Bible. Where the difference occurs is in temptation.

      Adam lived in a garden and as a perfect specimen of God’s design, in His image, was to live without aging. He needed a companion which God provided, and she too would have an eternal life. It was paradise. There were requirements. The most notable was the prohibition from eating of the fruit of the forbidden tree. Temptation was placed before Adam and Eve.

      Their longevity was attributed to a Spiritual Life, living for God, which provided for a Physical Life as well. Eternal life was given and the locale, Eden, was heaven on earth. Then along came Satan, the tempter. Satan spoke with Eve as a serpent, disguised so as to deceive this naïve person of God. The Father of Lies, the great deceiver, was able to convince Eve that eating of the fruit would not harm her, the command of God was hogwash, and she would not die. The temptation was made even easier to accept. She ate, she lived, and she enjoyed the fruit. So she offered the same to Adam. He was reluctant, but then what was a man to do. If he did not eat the fruit he could well be alone again in the garden. Eve’s disobedience would cause God to punish her, not him and expel her from Paradise. Her innocence and purity was now contaminated. He was dedicated to his mate. So he joined her, succumbed to the Deceiver’s offer, ate of the fruit and soon thereafter was expelled from the Garden. Adam’s perfect nature was no longer. His divine potential dashed. His DNA altered by his sin.

      The offspring of Adam and Eve would thus have the strain of contaminated DNA the Deceiver was able to input in their system through the fruit of the taboo tree. That strain remains in all of us.

      God was unable to change the course of history through the contaminated strain of man. They were want to take in the pleasures offered by the Father of Lies from that point forward, even today as evidenced by the ‘me’ society that occupies all corners of the world. He showed his wrath and vengeance, he made people aware of his punishment and the outcome for those who refused his commands and failed to obey. Even choosing a people to demonstrate what God offered those who believed in him, cracks in the temple of man enabled the deceiver to prove victorious. God’s promise was to overcome this sin and the death of man, the spiritual death that took place upon the first bite of the ‘apple’, as it were. The Old Agreement was not working except as a demonstration of God’s abilities, thus a New Agreement was prophesized and fulfilled with the advent of Jesus.

      Mary carried the tainted DNA, but God did not. God made Mary’s offspring to be born without the DNA of a human father, but the spirit of the Holy Father. His DNA was pure, not like our DNA in any way. God can do what He can do and thus did what no man could do – produce a perfect child. It says so in both the Bible and the Quran.

      Jesus led a perfect life, Isa, and as he lived he provided proof of his divine nature, as man-God, through miracles. He was a King, but not as a governing tyrant, by as a humble servant to mankind. That is the example we are to follow. Jesus allowed for the separation of governments from what guides his faithful followers. He informed us all that His world and this world are different, and we are to choose. He told those who heard him that in Him we also see His Father, one in the same. We cannot avoid living in this world, but we can avoid the temptations the Deceiver places in our way, recognizing God’s world is there for us – an eternal life with Him if we believe.

      Seen as the son of God, Jesus changed conditions for humans to achieve salvation. Surrounded by sinful men Jesus took upon himself, as God, the crimes of man and the punishment rightly deserved. He gave his life for you and me so we can be saved. It is perfect love. His only request is that we believe in Him and get to know Him. Knowing God, loving god, will make us do the good that God desires. We do it because we know he loves us, regardless of our flaws, we simply need to recognize our sinful nature, repent and forgiveness will follow. The doors to His Kingdom will open.

      God’s inspiration to all mankind is found in the Bible – The Old Agreement (Testament) and the New Agreement (Testament). The Bible enables our relationship with God to grow; that is what He wants. It is not by doing more good than evil in this world that salvation is possible. It is by knowing our sins have been punished. God himself was the sacrificial servant to us all and the sentencing on the Day of Judgment was superseded by an advocate on our behalf that gave us the path to avoid the judge’s gavel. We who are thankful and believe in Jesus’ sacrifice, the Christ, God, can live in his light daily as a volunteer for the Truth with obedience to the Truth. We may stumble, but with a heart committed and convicted to God, we will repent and be forgiven; we will not be tossed off the path towards his Gate. Make Christ the center of your life.

      One last point. The Holy Spirit is God that dwells in the hearts of his believers, his followers. It is as the Internet connection to the eternal kingdom. We can ask God and he will answer; his voice heard thru the spirit within. Pray, ask, be patient, listen and he will speak to you, guide you, and keep you on the right path. That is His Blessing each day. God is embodied, his Oneness, in the Father as the idea-Being, the Creator, the Giver of the Laws as well as the Son, the man-God, an earthy presence so man can know God, and as a humble servant to us all, the implementer of God’s designs, and then as the Spirit of God, the guarantor, the assurance of Salvation for those who accept and believe the punishment for our sins has been settled. His Spirit dwells inside each Believer. God can be in you, with you and for you daily. We are free to live only for Him – the One God of the Universe. We are free of the Laws, even though we are instructed to follow them as they clearly demonstrate what is morally good and ethically correct. The greatest commandment thought is first to love God and secondly our neighbor (all mankind, not just Christ followers). Love is paramount. Loving God, obedience to that which is morally correct and ethically good will flow. Temptations will be avoided.

      “…the Gospel…is the power of God for the Salvation of everyone who believes…. In the Gospel righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith.” – Romans 1:16-17

    2. Some huimor:

      RECALL NOTICE:

      The Maker of all human beings (GOD) is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed “Sub-sequential Internal Non-Morality,” or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

      Some of the symptoms include:
      1. Loss of direction
      2. Foul vocal emissions
      3. Amnesia of origin
      4. Lack of peace and joy
      5. Selfish or violent behavior
      6. Depression or confusion in the mental component
      7. Fearfulness
      8. Idolatry
      9. Rebellion
      10. Following false Prophets

      The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this defect. The Repair Technician, JESUS, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required. The number to call for repair in all areas is: P-R-A-Y-E-R. Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

      No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:

      1. Love
      2. Joy
      3. Peace
      4. Patience
      5. Kindness
      6. Goodness
      7. Faithfulness
      8. Gentleness
      9. Self Control

      Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

      WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded. For free emergency service, call on Jesus.

      DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility. Thank
      you for your attention!

      – GOD

      P.S. Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by ‘Knee mail’!

      Because He Lives! Each day we have is a Blessing, so use it wisely!

  2. Adam’s perfect nature was no longer. His divine potential dashed. His DNA altered by his sin. -u said-
    Mary carried the tainted DNA, but God did not. God made Mary’s offspring to be born without the DNA of a human father, but the spirit of the Holy Father. His DNA was pure, not like our DNA in any way. -u said-

    my answer: that is not scientific answer brother… even though God made Mary’s offspring to be born without the DNA of a human father, but still Mary is a sinful person.. it follow the DNA mixture that is xx+xy, the DNA that was contaminated still exist!!! i studied in medical base, so to me it not logic…
    -but the more i not understand is why Allah(according bible) not sent the Jesus Christ from the beginning?? why must still waiting for the long time period??
    -how about the people that born before the jesus exist?? is it they will not get forgiveness bcoz the salvation is not occurred yet???
    -can u explain what the purpose of the prophet in ur bible that was exist before Jesus?

    what the best statement in ur comment is like below:

    God can do what He can do and thus did what no man could do – produce a perfect child. It says so in both the Bible and the Quran. -u said-
    I agree with this statement, it so logical with definition of GOD..

    1. Still Searching………..

      Reason is valuable in determining your path. Thru reason we learn Truth. As you noted this is not a scientific exposition. Mary was indeed a sinful person. The DNA reference is as an analogy of purity and how the strain of Jesus could well differ – that of God erasing the impurities in Mary’s chromosome lineage with the purity only the metaphysical can provide. We cannot know of God’s DNA, but only his eternal Being and reality. He is the Most Pure. He dwells outside the natural realm.

      As to why Jesus, God, was not present on earth from Day 1 – God intended man to figure out how to live peacefully. He provided Laws. Humans failed by their own doing; it was not possible to fulfill the Laws. From the Fall in the Garden human sin only continued and to be righteous in God’s eyes was impossible. God continued to Love his creation, but was frustrated with their selfish acts. Jesus became a solution enabling mankind to achieve eternal Salvation. The sins of man needed to be punished, yours and mine, past, current and future, and Jesus took the judgment, the punishment we deserved to save us and make us righteous in God’s eyes. Jesus demonstrated how to live a perfect life; we learned too how difficult his way of life was. Simply as true believers in the saving sacrifice of Christ, the Risen One who as God (embodied in attributes as Father, Son and the Spirit that dwells within a Believer), omnipotent, who showed the way, we recognize our sinful nature, repent and ask forgiveness. We then obey God out of our love for God, having a heart for God. We recognize God’s Laws as moral and ethical boundaries for those loving God and neighbor.

      The Old Testament provides history and examples of God’s wrath and vengeance. He wanted man to obey, but that was clearly not going to happen. Strict obedience to God’s laws, even with God as the judge, was not enough to dissuade the evil selfish desires and man’s inability to resist Satan’s temptations. The Father of Lies was instrumental in turning heads away from God. The New Testament was a game changer, a demonstration God’s unconditional Love for all mankind. God was aware of the pagan nature of the world, and knows it continues to this day. He provided the means for humans to live in this world, and yet focus on His world, living a life as God desires. This is the nature of freedom.

      For those that came before Jesus, their sins were also forgiven. Any crimes committed against God were forgiven for those that Believed in God, as Abraham, and any punishment deserved was meted out on the Cross.

      The Prophets prior to Jesus repeatedly foretold the coming of Jesus, that there would be a New Agreement between man and God that more fully reflected God’s unconditional Love. His wrath would no longer apply to those that Believed and then obeyed.

      In the Book of Daniel the date of Jesus death and resurrection is forecast to the date, mathematically. That was 500 or so years before. In Jeremiah it speaks of the unfaithful nature of those chosen by God, the abuse by people of oaths taken, and their evil nature. This prophet then avers, “The time is coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant…it will not be like the covenant made with their forefathers.” This new covenant will insure mankind know God, “from the least of them to the greatest”, and “I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” (Jeremiah 31). In Jeremiah the linage of Mary was forecast (23) as that from which Jesus would be born. In Isaiah is says that salvation was coming for all, including the Gentiles (the non-chosen people, or you could say the infidels), it would be a virgin birth, as well as the nature of Jesus death, “pierced for our transgressions,…crushed for our iniquities, the punishment that brought us peace was upon him…like a lamb to slaughter… the Lord making his life a guilt offering, and more. Prophesies of the coming Messiah was proclaimed hundreds of years prior to Jesus birth. Those prophesy were fulfilled by Christ.

      I pray this is useful.

      Grace and Peace
