"see!" i told the dominee, "how the prophecies fit muhummed like a glove. we do not have to stretch prophecies to justify their fulfillment in muhummed."
the dominee replied, "all your expositions sound very well, but they are of no real consequence, because we christians have jesus christ the "incarnate" god, who has redeemed us from the bondage of sin!"
i asked, "not important?" god didn't think so! he went to a great deal of trouble to have his warnings recorded. god knew that there would be people like you who will flippantly, lightheartedly discount his words, so he followed up deuteronomy 18:18 with a dire warning: the very next verse, "and it shall come to pass," (it is going to happen) "that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, i will require it of him." (in the catholic bible the ending words are—"i will be the revenger”,—i will take vengeance from him—i will take revenge!) "does not this terrify you? god almighty is threatening revenge! we shake in our pants if some hoodlums threaten us, yet you have no fear of god's warning?"
"miracle of miracles! in the verse 19 of deuteronomy chapter 18, we have a further fulfilment of the prophecy in muhummed! note the words—'... my words which he shall speak in my name," in whose name is muhummed speaking?" i opened the holy qur'an — allama yusuf ali's translation, at chapter 114—'sura nas', or 'mankind'—the last chapter, and showed him the formula at the head of the chapter:
and the meaning: "in the name of god, most gracious, most merciful." and the heading of chapter 113:
and the meaning: "in the name of god, most gracious, most merciful". and every chapter downwards 112, 111, 110 ... was the same formula and the same meaning on every page, because the end suras (chapters) are short and take about a page each.
"and what did the prophecy demand? '... which he shall speak in my name,' and in whose name does muhummed speak? 'in the name of god, most gracious, most merciful.' the prophecy is being fulfilled in muhummed to the letter!
"every chapter of the holy qur'an except the 9th begin with the formula in the name of god, most gracious, most merciful.' the muslim begins his every lawful act with the holy formula. but the christian begins: "in the name of the father, son and holy ghost."’ *
*the christian theologians are ignorant of even the "name of god. because "god" is not a name and "father" is also not a name. write for "what's his named" from the i.p.c.i.
concerning deuteronomy chapter eighteen, i have given you more than 15 reasons as to how this prophecy refers to muhummed and not to jesus.
