Jesus Recognized By Muslims, Jews and Christians.
Make no mistake about it Jesus is mentioned in the Koran as a major prophet. Israel refers to Jesus as a manifestation of God but not the Son of God. The Idea of God or belief is skewed by these 2 main groups by placing Jesus at a lower level.
7 Thou made him a little lower than the angels; thou crowned him with glory and honor, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:Heb 2:7 (KJV)
4 prominent people in the Bible that all three religions knew spoke with God and had the power of God on their side, Abraham, Moses, David and Jesus. This is the foundations laid before all who believe in God. All 4 happen to come out of the nation of Israel and not the Arab nations.
We must guard against inattention and neglect of God's message through His Son
1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. 2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward; 3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; 4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?Heb 2:1-4 (KJV)
What happened during the time of Jesus and the priests of Israel? They were testing Jesus to see if He was the Messiah promised by God. The priests hearts were far from God and they required a sign from God that this indeed was the Messiah. Jesus answered and said a adulterous generation seeks after a sign. They did not understand Jesus and they did not recognize the miracles of healing performed to be from God but rather from Satan. If the priests would have declared Jesus as Messiah, their power over Israel would have been relinquished to Jesus as King. The political part of the Sanhedrin in Israel would have diminished power as well.
As Jesus declared unto the priests, they loved the seat of Moses rather than serving God. Oppression was served in punishment over sin, rather than repentance and forgiveness. The crowds believed Jesus to be the Messiah. Here is the deception, In order for the the Sanhedrin and priests to continue in power, they culminated a plot to capture Jesus and deliver Him to be crucified. Judas betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver to the priests. They came after Jesus as a thief in the night, in the Garden of Gethsemane. Jesus replied to them, you seek me in the dark when I was around you during the day in the temple preaching. The people were confused not understanding how God would allow their Messiah to be delivered and crucified. Notice Jesus only prepared the hearts of them closest to Him (12 Apostles) about His death soon coming.
Between betrayals, lies and hunger for power to be above others. Is it not possible that Israel and Islam would reckon safety of their own power in suppression of recognizing Jesus as any kind of deity close to God? Commit to call Jesus as Son of God blasphemy above all, punished by death. We have examples of conspiracies such as this in history, Death of JFK, Benghazi, What happened to Jimmy Hoffa? The suppression of Jesus in Israel has caused spiritual blindness, as Paul stated the veil is upon the eyes of Israel even unto this day.
Knowing and seeing the lies of politics and games people play on each other over power. Using deceit, bribery, favors and anything to keep the boat to float. Jesus to me makes perfect sense in light of Gods true love for His creation. In truth and conviction of heart, becoming popular to the people Jesus gave His life, because the powers of darkness required it and God used the death of Jesus to conquer death for the sinners who believe in Jesus. By Jesus blood we are covered with the best stain remover anyone can buy. His blood extinguishes sin and puts sin to death rather than the sinner. The sinner is saved the sting of death has no more pain to give.
God bearing all of what Jesus did in the 6 hours upon the cross accepted His sacrifice. The bitter cup of wrath that Jesus was given God in tender mercies, love drank it up. The bitter cup love drank up for the sinner is a sweet cup of blessing in remembrance of the Lord Jesus. Love is not only the measure God lives by but also the measure for all people to live by. Love should only be our guide towards doing that which is right. Anything else only builds resentment and confusion.
