“OUT OF DIVINITY – The Concept of Man’s Creation and Salvation”
~A gift of inspiration, wisdom, and Truth~
By
Gregory V. Boulware

Satan met and badgered Jesus in the desert. He was in the crowd shouting for his guilt, trial, conviction, and execution by crucifixion

The divine plan in man’s creation was objected to by the angels. The knowledge endowed in man and made to manifest to the angels through Adam and Eve with the exception of Ibliss. He refused to obey and was cast off. Adam and Eve were warned against the ‘Forbidden Tree’ while stationed within the ‘Garden of Eden.’ Disregarding the warnings, Satan beguiled them and caused their downfall. We have all learned that Adam repented through the words taught him by GOD:

“The Virtuous Shall be Rewarded and The Wicked Shall Be Punished!”

According to The Oxford Dictionary of Islam, Shaytan is used in the Quran in the singular and the plural Shayatin often interchangeably with Iblis, who is “considered to be a particular Shaytan.”

According to basic Islamic teachings, God revealed the creation of three intelligent species: angels, jinn, and humans, of which the latter two have been granted free will to choose between good and evil, and the Quran states that there is other creation beyond human knowledge “and He has created (other) things of which ye have no knowledge.”

The angels do not have free will and cannot sin because they were not granted the freedom by God to disobey. When God created Adam, he commanded all the angels and Iblis (whose rank allowed him to be considered equal to that of an angel) to prostrate to Adam as was termed “the Best of Creation”. All the angels did so but Iblis refused to obey, and was brought into a state of rebellion against God. For this God cast him out of Jannah (paradise), and intended to punish him. Iblis begged God to delay the punishment until Yawm al-Qiyāmah (Last Judgment), which was granted by God. It is We Who created you and gave you shape; then We bade the angels prostrate to Adam, and they prostrate; not so Iblis; He refused to be of those who prostrate.

(Allah) said: “What prevented thee from prostrating when I commanded thee?” He said: “I am better than he: Thou didst create me from fire and him from clay.”
—Quran, sura 7 (Al-A’raf) ayat 11-12

Iblis was proud and arrogant and considered himself superior to Adam, since Adam was made from clay and Iblis from smokeless fire. For this act of disobedience, God cursed him to Jahannam (Hell) for eternity, but gave him respite until the Day of Judgment, after Iblis requested it. Iblis obtained permission from God and vowed that he would use this time to lead all men and women astray to Hell as a way of revenge against them. By refusing to obey God’s order he was thrown out of paradise and thereafter he was called “Shaytan.”

He said: “Give me respite till the day they are raised up.”
(Allah) said: “Be thou among those who have respite.”
He said: “Because thou hast thrown me out of the way, lo! I will lie in wait for them on thy straight way:
“Then will I assault them from before them and behind them, from their right and their left: Nor wilt thou find, in most of them, gratitude (for thy mercies).”
(Allah) said: “Get out from this, disgraced and expelled. If any of them follow thee, – Hell will I fill with you all.”
—Quran sura 7 (Al-Aʻraf), ayah 14-18Although God grants the request, he also warns Satan that he would have no authority over his sincere ʻubūd ‘devoted servants’.

“As for My servants, no authority shalt thou have over them:” Enough is thy Lord for a Disposer of affairs.
—Quran, sura 17 (Al-Isra), ayah 65

He who believes in that which hath been sent down unto thee and that which hath been sent down before thee, and of the hereafter they are sure… These are the ones on the guidance from their Lord, and these are the ones who shall be the successful.
Verily, those who disbelieve, alike is it for them, thou warneth them or warneth them not; they will not believe.
God has sealed up their hearts and their hearing; and upon their sight is a covering; and for them is a great chastisement. Of the people who say we believe in God and of the Last Day, they are not believers at all. The deceive God and those who believe, while they deceive not but themselves, they perceive not.
In their heart is a disease and God increaseth their disease, for them is a painful chastisement, because of the lie they were saying.
And when it is said unto them, “Make ye not mischief in the Earth.” They say, “Verily, we are only the well-doers.”
Beware! Verily, they are the mischief mongers but they perceive not.

When it is said unto them, “Believe ye as the people did believe,” they say, “Shall we believe as the fools did believe?” Beware! Verily, they are the fools, but they know not. And when we meet with those who believe, they say, “We Believe” but when they go apart to their devils, they say, “Surely we are with you, verily, we did but mock.”
God mocketh at them and He only alloweth them to continue bewildered in their rebellion…
These are they who purchase error for guidance, hence their translation profitteth them not, neither are they guided aright.

The likeness of them is like unto one who kindleth a fire, and when it lighteth all around him, God taketh away the light and leaveth them in darkness – so they see not.
They are left deaf, dumb, and blind; hence they will return not from their darkness, of like a rain storm from heaven fraught with darkness, thunder and lightning. They put their fingers in their ears against the thunderclaps for fear of death; and verily, God encompasseth the disbelievers. The lightning well-neigh snatchet away their sight; as often as it gleameth for them, they walk therein and when it getith dark for them, they halt; if God willed, He could take away their hearing and their sight. Verily, God hath power over all things.
~Al BaQarah (The Cow); ‘Holy Qur’an’~

“The Virtuous Shall be Rewarded and The Wicked Shall Be Punished!”

“Greeting Good Saviour. I have been informed concerning you and your cures, which are performed without the use of medicines and herbs. It has been reported that you cause the blind to see, the lame to walk, do both cleanse lepers and cast out unclean spirits and devils, and restore them to health who have been long diseased, and raised up the dead; all which when I heard, I was persuaded of one of these two, either you are God himself descended from heaven, who do these things, or the Son of God.

On this account therefore, I have wrote to you, earnestly to desire you to take the trouble of a journey hither, and cure a disease which I am under. For I hear the Jews ridicule you, and intend you mischief.

My city is indeed small, but neat, and large enough for us both.

Jesus’ reply was sent by Ananias the footman to ABGARUS. He declined the welcomed visit invitation to Edessa:
“Abgarus, you are happy, for as much as you have believed on me, whom ye have not seen. For it is written concerning me, that those who have seen me should not believe on me, that they who have not seen might believe and live.
As to that part of your letter which relates to my giving you a visit, I must inform you, that I must fulfill all the ends of my mission in this country, and after that be received up again to Him who sent me.
But after my ascension I will send one of my disciples, who will cure your disease, and give life to you, and all that are with you.”

The gospel of ‘Nicodemus,’ formerly the Acts of Pontius Pilate, portray the sufferings and resurrection of Our Master and Savior, Yahshua / Jesus Christ:
Christ accused to Pilate by the Jews of healing on the Sabbath, nine summoned before Pilate by a messenger who does him honor, twenty worshipped by the standards bowing down to him.
Annas, Caiaphas, Summas, Datam, Gamaliel, Judas, Levi, Nepthalim, Alexander, Cyrus, and other Jews along with the Devil who shouted out from amongst them of the crowd, went to Pontius Pilate about Jesus, accusing him with many bad crimes.

In the name of the ‘Holy Trinity,’ The Acts of Our Savior ‘Jesus Christ / Yahshua,’ which the emperor ‘Theodosius The Great’ found at Jerusalem, in the Hall of Pontius Pilate among the public records; these things were acted in the nineteenth year of ‘Tiberius Caesar,’ emperor of the Romans, and in the seventeenth year of the government of Herod the son of Herod, King of Galilee, on the eighth of April, which is the twenty-third day of the month of March, in the CCIID Olympiad, when Joseph and Caiaphas were rulers of the Jews; being a history and written in Hebrew by Nicodemus, of what happened up to and after Our Saviour’s Crucifixion.

“The Virtuous Shall be Rewarded and The Wicked Shall Be Punished!”

The devil appeared not less than four or five times throughout the scenes in ‘The Greatest Story Ever Told.’ He sat and spoke with Yahshua / Jesus in the desert offering gifts and majestic rewards, in the desert while he was fasting. He was there in the shadows of the crowd in Jerusalem. He was the first one to shout blasphemy at the gates of Pontius Pilate, and the first to shout crucify him and free Barabbas and one of the initial accusers, he and Caiaphas.

Pilate pondered the err of his decision:
“What have I done? I knew before those eerie words crossed my lips that I had made an egregious erroneous decision! The wash water does not remove the bloody evil bestowed upon my unclean hands. And so it is ruled – to the cross with the prisoner! I shouted. Why did I mouth aloud those unholy words? For I have found that He is truly the Christ – The Son Of God!”

Yahshua said unto his disciples upon his returning to them at Galilee:
“Go now and teach all the nations of the world, for I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”

"A Believers' View"

“A Believers’ View”

“The Great Mediator”
by
Gregory V. Boulware

Long ago, chaos ruled the world. Peace and happiness was nowhere to be found.

There was a young boy with a message who conversed with the wise and learned Holy Men. This boy was 12 years of age. He was very well versed in the Holy Scriptures, more so than they. After hours and days had passed, the Holy Men asked the boy, “How is it that you are so well versed in the Holy Scriptures?” “Many of us have spent our entire lifetime studying the Holy Book and it’s scriptures therein, and continually endure difficulty deciphering its meanings.” The boy replied, “I am about my fathers’ business.” “I am the son of God.”

After the boy became a man, a Rabbi, one of the elders present when the man was a boy of twelve, recalled the question and answer meeting. He recalled the statement that was made of this man when he was a boy. “I am about my fathers’ business.” “I am the son of God.” The healing of the sick and bringing sight to the sightless were among some of the deeds that he was said to have accomplished. The man met his demise with mistrust, envy, jealousy, fear of progress in the right direction, and betrayal. He brought peace to the heart, soul, and mind with “just words.”

Today there is chaos, wars, starvation, greed, envy, betrayal and mistrust among the populace and the nations of the world. It is said by many, the prophet shall surely return to this world.

“One of the important results of the end-time events that lead to the return of the Messiah is the reunification of the “lost tribes” of Israel/Ephraim with their brethren. “All of Israel” (the entire twelve tribes) cannot be saved unless they are all brought back into a unity (echad). It is necessary for those of Israel who are “lost”
among the nations (Ephraim, the “fullness of the gentiles”) to come back in, and only then can this happen. This is the point of the “mystery” of Romans 11:25.”
