Hi brother,

I tried to send you a personal message but it did not work so I have posted the reply instead.

Obviously, the bread and fruit of the vine does not literally become the blood and body of Jesus. Lord Jesus said that this service must be done in memory of Him and the fact that his life was given as a ransom for many.

Luke 22:19-20
19 And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 20 And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.

John 6:53
53 So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.

Therefore, it is not about how it tastes but the life and strength of God we receive.

I saw your message about checking the accuracy of the timeline of prophets. Unfortunately, my historical knowledge regarding the matter is not great so I'm afraid I won't be of much help to you. However, I pray that Almighty God may guide you in all your work and help you to seek him wholeheartedly. If you have any more questions about the Bible, feel free to ask.

May God bless you, dear brother.

Dear brothers and sisters,

Praise the Lord and greetings in the name of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ whose kingdom is everlasting.

Daniel 7:13-14
13 “I saw in the night visions,
and behold, with the clouds of heaven
    there came one like a son of man,
and he came to the Ancient of Days
    and was presented before him.
14 And to him was given dominion
    and glory and a kingdom,
that all peoples, nations, and languages
    should serve him;
his dominion is an everlasting dominion,
    which shall not pass away,
and his kingdom one
    that shall not be destroyed.

Rejoice always in God; I pray that your joy may be complete even in the midst of troubles. I pray also that you may be a citizen of the kingdom of God.

Philippians 3:20
But our citizenship is in heaven

Habakkuk 3:17-19

17 Though the fig tree does not bud
    and there are no grapes on the vines,
    though the olive crop fails
    and the fields produce no food,
    though there are no sheep in the pen
    and no cattle in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
     I will be joyful in God my Savior.
19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength;
    he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
    he enables me to tread on the heights.

May God bless you and be with you always.

Greetings dear brothers and sisters, Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ

Luke 10:21-22

In that same hour he (Lord Jesus) rejoice in the Holy Spirit and said, "I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and the understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father..."

This verse from the Holy Bible shows us that in our hearts, we must become like children and humble ourselves to grow closer to God and understand his ways.

Mathew 18: 1-4
At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” 2 And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them 3 and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

The cruxifixion of Lord Jesus

Mark 15:37-39

And Jesus uttered a loud cry and breathed his last. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And when the centurion, who stood facing him, saw that in this way he breathed his last, he said, "Truly this man was the Son of God!".

1 Corinthians 1:18

18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

To the world, the crucifixion of Jesus may seem like foolishness as it is difficult to accept if we rely on our own understanding. However, brothers and sisters, I pass on the message of the cross to you not for the purpose of angering you or insulting your faith, but because the only salvation is through our Lord Jesus. He is a loving saviour given to us by God.

Acts 4:10-12
10 then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. 11 Jesus is
“‘the stone you builders rejected,
    which has become the cornerstone.’[a]
 12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

To understand this salvation, we cannot rely on our own understanding. Similarly, no man can help us understand it as the ways of God are far higher than our own ways. Let us humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God who is able to reveal all.

Please feel free to leave any comments or questions.

May you all always feel the everlasting love of our God.  :)

John 14:6
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Mathe 7:7,8
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Mathew 5:43-44
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

John 3:16
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Please feel free to reply if you have any comments or questions. May Almighty God bless you.

Dear Mr Abdallah and fellow brothers and sisters,
May God bless you. I am a Christian as Lord Jesus has spoken to me in many ways, showing me his amazing love for us all. I would like to address some of the points you have raised on the answering-christianity blog ( Firstly, I shall start with "1 - How can Jesus be GOD Almighty in the light of the following verses?". You outline some of the bible verses showing Jesus praying to God the Father, telling his disciples that "By myself I can do nothing" and many others. However, this is because Lord Jesus came to the earth as a man. Philippians 2:5-7 - '5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.' These verses show that Jesus came down to the earth as a bondservant without holding onto his Godly status. He was the 'Son of God' and the 'Son of Man' at the same time. He needed God's guidance as any other man does.
In contrast, after his resurrection, Jesus appeared to his disciples and said in Mathew 28:18 -18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me". This is because during the time he was on earth, he did the will of God the Father.
Secondly, you point out Luke 23:34 and say that "If Jesus was GOD, then why did he ask for GOD's Forgiveness in Luke 23:34?" Dear brother, you did not read the verse carefully. Luke 23:34 - 34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots. You can see that Jesus is not asking for the Father to forgive him but to forgive those to who crucified him.
Next, I shall cover the heading '3- The "Son" title also given to others beside Jesus'. For now, I shall address just one of the verses you chose to put on. This is a direct quote from your website -  "In Psalm 2:7 "....Jehovah had said onto me (David), thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee." David was called God's Begotten Son." The psalm is written by David but it is a prophecy about Jesus revealed to David by the Holy Spirit of Lord Jesus. The begotten Son is not David, he is Jesus. If you read the full psalm, its last verse says, '12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.' Clearly, this cannot be referring to David because God would never ask us to put our trust in David and he has never been a figure of worship. On the other hand, Jesus fulfills this criteria as he is the Son of God and he asks us to believe in Him - John 3:36 'Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.'
Lastly, you concluded that Jesus never claimed to be God. Mark 14:61-62 'But he remained silent and made no answer. Again the high priest asked him, “Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?” 62 And Jesus said, “I am".' In John 6:40, Jesus says, "For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.” Also, John 5:18 describes how the Jews seeked to kill Jesus as they were angry that Jesus 'was calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God'. Since Jesus is born of God, he is also God.
The love God has for us is so great! He showed us this through Jesus who died for our sins and offered himself as a perfect sacrifice to God so that all those who believe in him may have eternal life. If you would like to discuss anything, please e-mail to
May the grace of the living God be with you.
