Who is Christ

    When Christ referred to himself he said simply, "I am."  He who believes in me believes in the Father.  Therefore, the Father is Christ and Christ is the Father.  Today, ask yourself if you are a believer and how you can spread your belief.

      As a matter of interest - why do you need to "spread your belief"?

      Christ is the image of the invisible God. The first born among the dead. Simply put Christ is that essence that reveals the truth. He is the right hand of God. He is light. He is the Spirit of truth. But Jesus was the son of Mary upon whom the spirit of Christ descended.

      When Jesus was talking, it was not really him but Christ speaks in him. The same can happen to us also after being adopted as God's son by the word of truth. He begins to live in us and control our thoughts, speeches and actions.

      Accept him today. He waits at the door.

        If you want someone to accept your Christ, then, at least make some sense, man.  This sounds like the regurgitation of a holy roller sermon.

        Show me proof that an invisible imaginary entity is controlling your thoughts, speeches, and actions, then we can move forward.

      There is only one true statement any of us can make.

      That statement is "I AM".

      When the mind adds to it by saying "I am this or that, born at, married to, employed by, mother of" etc etc we make the mistake of taking imagination for reality.

      The "I am" is a fact. The "I am this or that" is not certain.

      I agree.
      But it's a hard saying, one that many cannot fathom.
      So, in the scenario of salvation which God effected, the distinction between the Father and the manifestation of the Son still needs to be shown to mankind.
      That's how the belief should be spread----through Christ.
      The Bible says no man comes to the Father except by Christ, and that He (Jesus) is the only mediator between God and man.
      Do you understand that?

      1. Ashmi profile image59
        Ashmiposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        As a contemplative, my understanding is that Jesus was the living example of God. If we follow His example as well as His teachings we are on the path to union with God.

        We must know the difference between God, the Soul (I am) and the Person (who we think we are).....the three appear different but are one in Essence.

        When the Soul realises that the person is an expression of Herself and not different from Her...the Soul unites with God and becomes as One with Him. She (the Soul) the bride becomes one with the bridegroom (the Father or God)

            I beg to differ.
            Christ was and is a reality.  He's not a feeling (although He does have feelings!)

            I find your view very abstract.   God isn't that.  He's very knowable.

            1. Ashmi profile image59
              Ashmiposted 7 years agoin reply to this

              God cannot be anything but abstract. As soon as you define Him you limit Him. He is infinite, eternal and omnipresent. Any attempt to concretize God is to deny Him these qualities.

              He is knowable only by being One with Him. Knowledge is limited to the senses and it is impossible to know God in this way. We can know Him via His expressions which we as well as the rest of creation is a part. But a reflection of the Sun is not the Sun. We are but shadows yet emanate from God.

              Whatever comes from a "thing" must have the elements of it's cause. We all come from God therefore we are One with Him. We do not know this however. Only through Christ can we know this as a direct experience.

              Christ was real, as a person, who adopted the attitude of God, and so was not separate from Him. If we follow Him we too are One with Him.

              Reality is not what we perceive in time and space. It is beyond the mind altogether. .....we are in this world but not of this world.

                I've never said Christ was separate from God.  He isn't separate.
                His manifestation in the flesh was a distinct (not separate) occurrence.

                  Fair enough. The issue was whether God was knowable as a concrete entity. Definable and describable. However: We each experience God in our own way. Whatever way makes one imitate the life of Christ is the correct way for them. There are many paths but they all lead to God.

                    Maybe you think so.
                    But what other way could be a valid way than for God to "become" a man so that man could relate to Him?
                    All other roads have no perfect example like that of Christ.

      Hi friend bearnmom

      "I am" is not a complete sentence. Jesus said that he is Son of Adam; so the complete sentence would be "I am Son of Adam "; it is a very weak ground to make him god with such incomplete sentences as this one; a wild guess. What a incomplete god they make out of this incomplete sentence.

        Minor correction: I Am is a complete sentence.

        I am I; I am (He) that is.

        It is a totality/fullness not a name.

      Christ is a non-existent person people believed walked Earth at some point.

      However, if you are trying to make a reference to Jesus? Then, please refrain from calling him Christ, because that was not his name. "Christ" was given to him for a last name, when Christianity came into being, years after his execution.

      The actual person "Jesus" has no last name. wink

    Who is Christ?

    It is Jesus Christ son of Mary ; a Jew; he was never a god or so of god. He was son of man; as he himself acknowledged so many times. He was a humble man who love God Allah YHWH and God Allah YHWH loved him that is why the Creator-God Allah YHWH selected him as Messenger Prophet for reformation of the Jews. He was not sent to Gentiles or to the people of the world as being preached by the Church now and by the cunning Paul to start with.

    Jesus did not die on the Cross; he migrated from Judea and went to India to deliver the Message assigned to him by God Allah YHWH to the lost tribes of Israel who were settled there. He died a natural and peaceful death in Srinagar, Kashmir, India.

    Quran mention factual account of Jesus' life and his teachings; Bible gives a distorted view of him and his teachings.

    I love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran.

        If you want to go that deep ; then even Jesus was not his name; neither his mother nor his disciples addressed him as Jesus. Jesus is in Greek while Jesus and Mary spoke Aramaic. They resorted to calling him Jesus as they lost the original scriptures in Aramaic; and they did not know as to what to do.

      1 John 2:22, son of Ishmael...

      "Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son." 

      allah is not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, for their God is the Father, Who came to us in the flesh of Jesus Christ, His Son.  He is the same LORD, Who now indwells us by His Spirit. 

      allah is not a father, nor does he have a son ~ so who is the liar?

      The names of allah:
      Ad-Darr, The Creator of the Harmful; he who creates which makes one despondent

      Al-Badi,The Originator, The Incomparable; he who creates wonders in the universe without any design

      Al-Kfahid, The Abaser, he who diminishes or decreases: "We have put chains around their necks chin high, and forced them to lift up their heads."

      Al-Matin, The Forceful One; his subtle scheme is exceedingly firm

      Al-Mudhill, The Dishonoror; he who lowers and puts one in abasement or degradation

      Al-Mumit, The Taker of Life; he who created death

      Al-Mutakabbiru, The Most Proud One

      Al-Mu'akhkhir,The Delayer

      Al-Qabid, The Constrictor

      Al-Warith,The Inheritor of All; he who has everlasting ownership of all things. Finite man only has temporary ownership, and at death all creatures have nothing.

        Hi friend  Judah's Daughter

        Jesus was from the proginey of Abraham,Isaac and Jacob; and to say otherwise that Jesus existed before Abraham, Isaac and Jacob would neither be factual nor natural and would be fallacious and mythical.

        Quran has rejected this notion with reasons at many times in Quran; I quote one such place:

        [2:140] Say: ‘Do you dispute with us concerning Allah, while He is our Lord and your Lord? And for us are our works, and for you your works; and to Him alone we are sincerely devoted.’
        [2:141] Do you say that Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and his children were Jews or Christians? Say, ‘Do you know better or Allah?’ And who is more unjust than he who conceals the testimony that he has from Allah? And Allah is not unaware of what you do.
        [2:142] Those are a people that have passed away; for them is what they earned, and for you shall be what you earn; and you shall not be questioned as to what they did.

          So you're saying Isa was a liar?  Oh, of course, Islam's Isa [aka jesus] is the Bible's 'false prophet'; he is not the Jesus of the Bible.  John 8:58 clearly states, "Jesus said to them, 'Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.'"  Who is the liar, but he who denies the Father and the Son?  Nice way to avoid acknowledging the fact that allah is not a father, nor does he have a son.  he is not the same God as the God of the Bible.  Speaking of Ishmael and Isaac, Gal 4:28-29 state, "And you brethren, like Isaac, are children of promise.  But just as then the son who was conceived according to the flesh [Ishmael] persecuted the son who was conceived according to the Spirit [Isaac], so it is now."  Ishmael was a Jew, just like Isaac, yet Muslims consider the Jews Satan.  You are obviously not the sons of Isaac, or you would be descended from Jacob, the father of Israel, the Jews!  And Jacob's twin brother, Esau, is the one God hated.  Which is it?

      Christ is Anointing.
      So, the proof people are looking for in the man Jesus and his work is evident in the Anointing, which include the human attributes/application of the anointing (healing, water walking, fire protection, etc). All these expressions are to show every human that even the fundamental elements around them are submissive to them, when they are in the anointing. Else, they are naked/unclothed and they become submissive to the elements around them. (sickness, fear, death, etc.)

      Jerami is spot on: the only true way to understand the Anointed is to be anointed. Then that evidence expounds.

      Hi friends

      Jesus Christ is an obediend servant of the Creator - God Allah YHWH and is neither god nor son of god:


      [4:172] O People of the Book, exceed not the limits in your religion, and say not of Allah anything but the truth. Verily, the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, was only a Messenger of Allah and a fulfilment of His word which He sent down to Mary, and a mercy from Him. So believe in Allah and His Messengers, and say not ‘They are three.’ Desist, it will be better for you. Verily, Allah is the only One God. Far is it from His Holiness that He should have a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. And sufficient is Allah as a Guardian.
      [4:173] Surely, the Messiah will never disdain to be a servant of Allah, nor will the angels near unto God; and whoso disdains to worship Him and feels proud, He will gather them all to Himself.
      [4:174] Then as for those who believed and did good works, He will give them their rewards in full and will give them more out of His bounty; but as for those who disdained and were proud, He will punish them with a painful punishment. And they shall find for themselves beside Allah no friend nor helper.

            God did not say this, nor did Jesus. Regarding everlasting life, Jesus said the way to gain it is by adhering to God's Law of Love. If you truly believe that  Jesus spoke "truth" than anything the contrary is a lie.  (Luke 10:25-28): And a lawyer stood up and inquired of Jesus, “Rabbi, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” And Jesus asked, “What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?” And the lawyer replied, “You shall love the lord your god with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and will all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” And Jesus replied, “You have answered correctly; do this and you will live.”

              You do know some of the Bible, don't you?  "I AM" is the One who spoke to Moses in the burning bush; and yet Jesus said in John 8:58 "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am."  Jesus is God, Who created all things.  He is the Word that spoke everything into being.  God became a man; is that so hard to understand?  He loves us that much!  Read all about it in the books of John.  His human flesh died for us; His Spirit lived before the flesh, lived in the flesh, and resurrected that flesh, and is now indwelling all believers in Spirit once again.  God is spirit (John 4:24).  The LORD, Jesus is the first and the last (Isaiah 44:6; Rev 22:13).  Yehowshua is His Hebrew 'human' name, meaning 'YHVH Saves'.

                I have mentioned this before there are two I's small for human big I for god.

                Om namo shiva-I bow to ShivA
                Shiv Ho Hum-I am shiva

                Dont give more importance to the name over the message.

                “Always think of Me, become My devotee, worship Me and offer your homage unto Me. Thus you will come to Me without fail. I promise you this because you are My very dear friend” (Bhagavad-gita 18.65).

                “To show them special mercy, I, dwelling in their hearts, destroy with the shining lamp of knowledge the darkness born of ignorance” (Bhagavad-gita 10.11).

                “Abandon all varieties of mundane religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear.” (Bhagavad-gita 18:66).

                “As they surrender unto Me, I reveal myself” (Bhagavad-gita 4.11). Never mind religion, race or nation: samo ‘ham sarva-bhutesu na me dvesyo ’sti na priyah – “I am not partial to anyone. I am equal to all” (Bhagavad-gita 9.29).

                    You haven even heard about the Bhagvad Gita, a spiritual masterpiece.?
                    Its about the prophet  Krishna.

                    Its a better spiritual book than the Bible, do read it .

                      So what is the crux of this 'religion'?  That man is only enlightened, graduating to become a part of the universal spirit, and there is no consequence of judgment in the end?  I'm guessing, but I am probably not far off the mark....

      Having a think out loud moment....


        God made a covenant with Abraham.  I think that we could call this a verbal contract between God and Abraham?

         Being lead by their religious organization; The Hebrews continued to break that contract.
         That Hebrew Nation was spiritually bankrupt.

         Upon the arrival of the promised Messiah (Jesus) every one was redeemed from their indebtedness, but only if they chose to accept it.
           

          Jesus said that he had come but for the lost sheep of the house of Israel. I think that this was because it was the Hebrews who had broken the contract with God.

          This New covenant of redemption was also offered to anyone else that wanted it.

         And then ...  some time later ...a religious establishment eventually gains leadership. And in order to keep their followers multitudes of denominations are established.

        The beliefs in many truths are created.
        Have ya ever heard the expression  .....
      United we stand   divided we fall   ... 
      Satan knows it well !

      "Christ is the "I AM"...the pure feeling of being. To stay at this gate, leads to the kingdom of God."

      Hi friends

      I wonder; how could an incoplete sentece make one a god? It is but a mythical imagination; of Paul , Church and their associates.

      Jesus was neither a god nor a son of god; his mother's name was Mary; and Mary had no husband by the name "god". Did she have?

      Thanks

      Hi friends

      Believing in Jesus is only academic; with the advent of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad 1835-1908, the Second Coming of the Messiah has taken place, so believing in Him is essential in the present era.

      The word “son” (ibn) also has more than one sense. It can be used in a literal sense, as a child is born from the union of a father and a mother. But it can also be used in a symbolic or spiritual sense. For example, the Arabs say that a certain person is ibn al-wa

      Now Paas, if you do not stop mis-constueing the term and intentionally propagating false facts... then I would advise no one give any credit to your words.

      But then again we all know your an islamic propagandist and apologist. On top of the fact that your sect is a heretical sect and under Fatwa of death from all other Islamic sects.

      The God that I believe in speaks English. 

         Can the God that you believe in speak a language other than the one that I speak ?

        Could he have told you something that he didn't tell me ?

        Might he have told me something that he didn't tell you ?

        If he has given me a blue crayon and told me that this is the BEST color ,   Why would he give you a red crayon and tell you "IT"  was the best color.

         It this a good reason for me to say that your God must be a false God cause you have a different color ???

          Many people think so !!!

        The same reason followers of many religions have all each got their own colored crayons and why none of us have just one colored crayon. Can you guess the answer?

         

        Or, gods just don't exist and the crayons are all man made. smile

      Jesus Christ is The Son of God (not) God himself. Why will people simply not believe John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. It does NOT state hear that he loved us so greatly that he came and dwelt with us, or he came to us, or God descended down to be with his people, no it does not is says He sent his only SON. This is why God had such a great covenant with Abraham, as he was willing to sacrifice his ONLY son Isaac for God. It would be the ultimate sacrifice and it touched God so he was pleased.

        Hi friend  toast1000

        Jesus did not believe John. Why should I believe in John?

        Jesus never commanded to believe in John? Did he?

        Jesus was son of Mary; and Mary was a human being; hence Jesus was also a human being. Mary did not have a husband named god; hence Jesus was neither god nor son of god.

        Do you deny that Jesus was not son of Mary?

          And Christ never dis-owned or rejected John. Read a Bible Paas, instead of getting your information from a flawed source like the qu'ran.
