Jesus Strongly Warns Us to Avoid the Islamic False Prophet

Jesus Strongly Warns Us to Avoid the Islamic False Prophet

In the Book of Revelation Jesus warns us about a False Prophet. Nearly 600 years after Jesus said this Mohammad fulfilled all of the warnings from Jesus. If you are Muslim, we want you to know the truth of Jesus, the Son of God. The sacrifice of Jesus is the only path to heaven. There is no other way. The prophet you were taught to respect and recited the words in the Koran was a False Prophet. Jesus told us this long before it happened.
Revelation Now
In the Bible, Revelation chapters 13 and 16, Jesus said the False Prophet would take five actions. First, Jesus said the False Prophet would attempt to look like and claim to be associated to the Lamb of God, which is Jesus. Second, the False Prophet would deceive the world. Third, the False Prophet would set up an image to worship a false god. Fourth, the False Prophet would create a mark, or statement of faith, to a false god. And fifth, Jesus said demonic spirit messages would come out of the False Prophet’s mouth. Mohammad fulfilled all five of these warnings from Jesus.

Jesus warned us about the False Prophet. The False Prophet was Mohammad. Mohammad did everything Jesus warned us he would do. Listen to Jesus. Do not believe the words of the False Prophet. Only the Bible is the true Word of God. Because Jesus said this many hundreds of years before Mohammad was born, the Bible must be true.

The Bible says Jesus was crucified for our sins and rose to life on the third day. The Koran says this did not happen. Pray for every Muslim who follows the teachings of the False Prophet, who takes the Shahada mark and worships the Kaaba Blackstone image. Pray that they will learn the truth of Jesus. Jesus is the Son of God and only path to Heaven. Jesus and the Father are one God.

Do Christians Go Immediately to Heaven After They Die?

Do Christians Go Immediately to Heaven After They Die?


by JACK WELLMAN ·  Print ·  Email

Where do Christians go the moment after they die?  Is it immediately to heaven and for the unsaved, immediately to hell?  Does the Bible say where the dead go and when?

One Second After Death

What happens in the very next second or less after a person dies?  The destination clearly depends upon whether a person has repented and trusted in Christ or whether they have rejected their only hope of eternal life (Acts 4:12; 16:30-31).  Paul seemed certain that after he died he would be present with the Lord.  To be present with someone obviously means that they would have to be with them.  When I got married, my fiancé had to be present with me or we could not have gotten married.  I know that is a poor analogy but what I am saying is that Paul says to be absent from the body (dead) is in the next moment to be “present with the Lord.”  In 2 Corinthians 5:6, 8 Paul wrote that, “We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord…and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.”   I see nowhere in this text where there is a time differential between death and being in the presence of the Lord.

Do Christians Go To Heaven At The Moment of Death

For those who bend the knee, repent of their sins, confess their sinfulness and desperate need for the Savior, and then put their trust in Him, there is a joyous destination awaiting you.

Pauls’ Final Days

When Paul wrote his letter to Timothy he understood that the time of his death was near.  Whether he had overheard this from the guards, an angel of the Lord or Jesus Christ Himself we cannot tell but Paul seemed certain that he was going to die very soon.

In 2 Timothy 4:6-8 Paul writes:

“For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.”

There are a few things that are important to note in Paul’s words here.  First, he says that his “departure is near.”  This departure being near is written within the context of this paragraph where he says that “there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day.”  What day!?  It seems clear that Paul’s departure is near and that then there will be awarded to him “the crown of righteousness” on that day!   Do you see that?  He is near his earthly departure and what awaits him is a crown of righteous to be given to him on that day!  It appears to be the same day that he departs that he will receive this crown. He could have modified this sentence to the effect of saying, “Then, at the Lord’s return, I will receive the crown of righteousness” but he doesn’t. He says that it will be awarded to him on “that day!”

It’s important to note that the books of the Bible are not in the order in which they were written…that is, they are not in chronological order.  This is true of the Old Testament as well as the New Testament.  There are many books in the Bible that are in the order in which they were written, but certainly not all of them and so when we see that 2 Timothy is followed by Titus and Philemon, which were also written by Paul, this doesn’t mean that they were written after 2 Timothy.  Most Bible scholars believe 2 Timothy was Paul’s last letter and this may be why he is giving Timothy departing letter.

Lazarus and the Rich Man

When Jesus mentioned what happened to the rich man and Lazarus after they died, there was no mention of a holding period or an interval of time between their death and their destination.  Lazarus lived in poverty and want while the rich man lived in splendor and plenty but when they died, they went separate ways.

In Luke 16:22-24 Jesus said

“The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.” 

  • There is no mention of the false idea of a “soul sleep.”  When the Bible mentions that they slept with their fathers or they had fallen asleep, that meant that they were dead…but not gone (John 11:1-14).

Two important things are in this story.  One is “when they died.” What happened when they died?  The rich man went to “Hades, where he was in torment” while Lazarus was carried by angels to Abraham’s bosom.  The place that Lazarus was at seems to be what is called in the Jewish vernacular, “Paradise.”  Paradise is thought to be the abode or dwelling place of the Old Testament saints.   Jesus told the thief on the cross, “Truly I say to you.  Today you will be with me in Paradise” (Luke 223:43).   Any time Jesus says “truly” or “surely” as some translations say, you can be certain that Jesus was putting an exclamation point on what He was saying.  Jesus said surely or truly the thief would be with Jesus in Paradise.  When would the thief be in Paradise and when?  It would be “today” and he would be with Jesus.  That very day Jesus promised the thief would be with Him in paradise.  After Jesus’ death, Paradise may have been changed into being in the presence of the Lord or in heaven because of the atoning work at Calvary so that the Old Testament saints and those who died in the faith will be present with the Lord (2 Tim 4:6-8).

Stephen Sees Jesus in Heaven

When Stephen was stoned for proclaiming the gospel, he sees the Lord, Jesus Christ standing at the right hand of God in heaven.

We read this account in Acts 7:55-60:

“But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.  “Look,” he said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.” At this they covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him, dragged him out of the city and began to stone him. Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul. While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” Then he fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he fell asleep.”

Again, there is no mention of soul sleep.  As Stephen was dying, he actually saw heaven open up and there was “the Son of Man (Jesus) standing at the right hand of God.”  Stephen must have known that he was going immediately into the presence of the Lord for he says “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.”  Here is a dying Stephen, seeing Jesus in heaven and asking him to receive his spirit.”  That sounds like he is immediately being “absent from the body” only to be “present with the Lord” (2 Cor 5:6).  How clear that is.

Interesting reading: What is a Spiritual Body?  (What is your body going to be like in heaven?)


If you are not born again, then you will have no opportunity to go to heaven when you die but will the very next moment be in torment.  You will wait in torment, like the rich man is still waiting today.  You will await the Great White Throne Judgment where all who are in their graves and those unbelievers still living at the time of Christ’s return will be judged (Rev 20:11-15) but God has provided a way for you to be redeemed.  For those who bend the knee, repent of their sins, confess their sinfulness and desperate need for the Savior, and then put their trust in Him, there is a joyous destination awaiting you.

For the Christian, death is not a problem because we know that 2 Corinthians 5: 1- 6, 8 speaks about our eternal destination:

“For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this tent we groan, longing to put on our heavenly dwelling,if indeed by putting it on we may not be found naked. For while we are still in this tent, we groan, being burdened—not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord” and “We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.” 

That is where you’ll be one second after you die…that is if you are born again.  A person that’s born twice (born again and a natural birth) will never die but a person who is born only once (a natural birth but not born again) will die twice; once in their mortal body and then in the lake of fire (Rev 20:11-15).  I pray you choose the former.

Jesus Cares and Fully Understands

Jesus Truly Cares and Fully Understands Jesus cares
Along life’s journey, none of us can avoid worries, hardships, or heartache. When we’re hurt, discouraged, or grieving, we yearn for someone to understand what we’re going through. We may tell our troubles to friends or family, but sometimes they can’t fully understand. And although we may get some relief by telling them about our situation, we still feel a deep need in our heart.

At times like that, who can we turn to? We might think even the Lord Jesus can’t really understand. But He can! And we can be assured of this fact based on God’s Word.Today we’ll focus on a priceless verse in the Bible, Hebrews 2:17, with the notes in the New Testament Recovery Version. We’ll see that our dear Lord Jesus can genuinely understand and sympathize with us like no one else can. And He’s the only One who can meet our inner need.

Hebrews 2:17 says,

“Hence He should have been made like His brothers in all things that He might become a merciful and faithful High Priest in the things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.”
Let’s look at three crucial phrases in this verse.

1. Made like His brothers in all things

What does it mean that Jesus was “made like His brothers in all things”? Note 1 in the New Testament Recovery Version says:

“The Son of God was made like us, His brothers, in that He partook of blood and flesh (v. 14). This was done for two purposes, one negative and the other positive. The negative purpose was to destroy for us the devil, who is in the flesh. The positive purpose is to be our merciful and faithful High Priest who has the human nature, that He may sympathize with us in all things.”
Hebrews 2:14 (referenced in the note) says,

“Since therefore the children have shared in blood and flesh, He also Himself in like manner partook of the same, that through death He might destroy him who has the might of death, that is, the devil.”
This verse tells us the Lord partook of blood and flesh so that through death He might destroy the devil. That was the negative purpose of His being made like us in all things.

But verse 17 speaks of the positive purpose for Jesus partaking of blood and flesh. This was so He could have the human nature. Since He possesses the human nature, Jesus can be our merciful and faithful High Priest who can sympathize with us in all the difficulties of human life. If Jesus didn’t have the human nature, how could He understand or sympathize with us human beings?

With this in mind, let’s consider the Lord’s life on earth.

Isaiah 53 is a great prophecy and revelation of Jesus in the Old Testament. It says that He would be a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief. From being placed in a lowly feeding trough at his birth to enduring a humiliating and agonizing death on the cross, Jesus experienced untold suffering throughout His entire life. He grew up in a poor carpenter’s home in Nazareth, not in a trouble-free environment. He knew firsthand what physical hunger, thirst, weariness, and poverty were. He knew from personal experience what it was to be rejected, misunderstood, mocked, and slandered.

Yet at the same time, the Gospels reveal that Jesus cared deeply for the human beings He came to live among and minister to. His heart was fully concerned for all the sinners He met. He healed the sick, cleansed lepers, and gave sight to the blind. He spoke tender words of compassion to those who were forlorn and miserable.

Jesus cared for every kind of person, no matter how vile; this caused the people who didn’t appreciate Him to belittle Him by calling Him a “friend of sinners.” But how wonderful for all of us that He is indeed a friend of sinners! Jesus understood and sympathized with people’s problems, sadness, and distress. This is the kind of man He was when He lived on earth.

Because Jesus was made like us in all things, and because of all He experienced as a man, He can understand anything we may be going through, no matter how terrible or distressing. We can be sure that whatever painful situation we’re in, He shares in our feelings, sympathizes with us, and cares for us.

Now we’ll look at the second important phrase in Hebrews 2:17.

2. He might become a merciful and faithful High Priest
What do these words reveal about Jesus? Note 2 on High Priest explains:

“As the High Priest, Christ ministers God Himself and the riches of the divine life to us. As the God-man, He is more than fully qualified to be our High Priest. Here, merciful corresponds with His being a man; faithful corresponds with His being God.”
In the Old Testament, the high priest took care of God’s people, and Jesus is the fulfillment of this Old Testament picture. Jesus, our real High Priest, is both God and man. As a man made like us in all things, He’s merciful to us and able to understand us. We can come to Him and be assured that He sympathizes with us in our affliction.

What’s more, as God, Jesus is our faithful High Priest who ministers God Himself and the unlimited riches of the divine life into us. He faithfully ministers these divine riches to us to meet our need in our situation of suffering. We may not even know what we need, but our faithful High Priest knows. He ministers the riches of God into us to meet our need, whether it’s strength, love, hope, encouragement, endurance, or joy.

We come now to the third important phrase in this verse.

3. To make propitiation for the sins of the people
Maybe we feel like we can’t pour out what’s on our heart to Jesus because we’re afraid to come to Him. Perhaps we feel unworthy, or we’ve been away from Him for a while, or we’ve experienced failure in our Christian life. But we don’t need to stay far away from Him! The Lord made propitiation for our sins. Note 4 on propitiation says:

“Jesus made propitiation for our sins, thereby satisfying the demand of God’s righteousness and appeasing the relationship between God and us, that God may be peacefully gracious to us.”
It’s impossible for us to do anything to make our sinful situation right before God. But Jesus loved us to such an extent that He laid down His life for us. He resolved our problem of sin and met all the righteous demands of God through His death on the cross.

So if we’ve sinned, we need to repent—that is, turn back to God—and confess our sins to Him. When we turn to Him and confess our sins, we can enjoy His propitiation again and be forgiven and cleansed with His blood. This makes it possible for us to come to the Lord without fear.

Hebrews 2:17 is truly a marvelous verse! It shows us no matter what difficult situation we’re going through, we can be assured that Jesus understands us fully and sympathizes with us deeply.

How do we experience the sympathy and ministry of Jesus?

Now that we’ve looked at some verses and footnotes in the New Testament Recovery Version, let’s go on to see how we can practically come to the Lord Jesus to experience His sympathy and ministry:

We should first realize that the Lord isn’t far away from us or hard for us to reach. When we were saved, Christ as the life-giving Spirit came to live in our spirit. He’s so close and accessible in our spirit; we can come to Him at any time.
If our conscience makes us aware of any sins we’ve committed, we should confess them to remove any barrier between us and the Lord and be forgiven and washed in His blood. We can come to Him with confidence because He’s already made propitiation for our sins.
We come to the Lord by turning our hearts to Him from everything else and exercising our spirit in prayer. It really helps if we open our mouth and pray audibly to the Lord. By speaking to Him in prayer, we can pour out what’s on our heart into the listening and loving ear of Jesus.
Many of us can testify that we’ve experienced the sympathy and ministry of Jesus, our High Priest. In the midst of our woes, as we uttered what was on our heart to Him in prayer, we had the sense He was listening intently to us, and we were soothed by His sympathy and tender care. Though our outward situation didn’t necessarily change, we were encouraged and enlivened. Jesus not only sympathized with us but also ministered something of God into our being, meeting our deepest need. Words just can’t express how wonderful this is.

We hope you’re encouraged by the words in Hebrews 2:17 and the notes in the New Testament Recovery Version. No matter what we’re going through, we can come to the Lord in prayer. We never have to wonder whether Jesus can understand. He always does, and He can truly meet our need.
