{2006, February; God added this from the writing of Isaiah son of Amoz;

The vision concerning Judah and Jerusalem that Isaiah son of Amoz saw during the reigns of Uzziah (783 BC to 742 BC), Jotham (742 BC to 735 BC), Ahaz (735 BC to 715 BC) and Hezekiah (715 BC to 687 BC), kings of Judah. Isaiah 2:2 to 5.

In the last days;

    The mountain of the Lord's temple will be established as chief among the mountain;
it will be raised above the hills, and all nations will stream to it.

    Many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in His paths”.
The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

    He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many people.
They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.

    Come, O house of Jacob, let us walk in the Light of the Lord”.}    -Isaiah 2:2-5

( To Isaiah; may your vision come true in my life and in my life time. )

The Message – spoken by God

    In the beginning of this earth, I created it from a dark void. I hovered over the waters of the deep and formed this planet.

   I spoke it into being. In six steps; I made this Earth.

    And when I was finished; I rested and blessed this rest and called it the Sabbath Day;- the seventh day of each week.

    The person, I created on the earth, was created with free will; to obey Me or not; so that I may be loved freely.

    But as the days became years; the descendants sin against Me. I raised up messengers from among their own kind; to speak of my love for my people.

    Many spoke, and many got their own ideas mixed up with mine; but my love still prevailed.

    I raised up Moses and gave him my very soul. That what I am is written in stone. That what I gave to Moses is Me. Who ever lives in that Law; lives in Me.

    John, you have felt my soul; you tremble in fear because you have failed Me many times. But my words, I gave you, is a reflection of my love for you and the people of this Earth.

    Many others have spoken the truth about Me, but were not listen to by the peoples of Earth. This saddens Me; for, they walk to their own death.

    My message is Love. I am your Creator. No other can take my place. Now if you do not take your place in my love, you stand condemn.

    All peoples have worked against my Law of Love; all need to return to Me. My love awaits you. My Spirit will guide you.

    This is the Massage; given to me, from The Lord God – Allah – Almighty. Creator of this Earth and all that is in it.

The Message – spoken by God; written by man. ( page1)

    In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. Genesis 1:1-2.

    And God said, “Let there be ...” and it was so. Thus the heavens and earth were completed in all there vast array. Genesis 1: -; 2:1.

    By the seventh day God had finished the work God had been doing; so on the seventh day God rested from all that work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all the work of creating that had been done. Genesis 2:2-3.

    God made people with free-will. Free-will is your right too. You may obey God or you may not obey God. Genesis 1:26-31; 2:15-; 4:26.

    When people chose to; not obey God: God sent messengers to the people. The messengers were and are just people with all the same needs and weaknesses as any one of us. Because these messengers are people; they say what God wants from a person's point of view. Very few ever got it totally right.

    Abraham used blood sacrifices for the forgiveness of sin. Hosea spoke God's words; “For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgement of God rather then burnt offerings.” Hosea 6:6.

    Moses was given God's Ten Commandments, that were written by God in stone; but Moses allow divorce. Jesus (Immanuel, Isa) said; “It has been said, ' Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.', but I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to commit adultery, and anyone who marries a woman so divorced (marital unfaithfulness) commits adultery.” Matthew 5:31-32.

    Jesus tough that the Law would not ever change: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets: I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill (obey) them. Not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of the pen, will by any means disappear from the Law, (the Ten Commandments) until everything is accomplished”. Micah spoke the words of God , “What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humble with your God”. Matthew 5:17-20, Micah 6:8.

    Muhammad put a stop to idolatry and protected women. But allow men to have more than one wife. “In those ten years he (Muhammad) destroyed idolatry in Arabia; raised women from the status of a chattel to complete legal equality with man;” - The meaning of the Glorious Qur'an. Paul wrote, “each man should have his own wife; and each woman her own husband”. 1 Corinthians 7:2.

( page 2)

    Ezekiel spoke the words of God, when people sinned or done wrong; how would they be forgiven?. Muhammad spoke of God's mercy for those who done wrong. “But if any have done wrong and have there after substituted good to take the place of evil, truly I Am Oft- Forgiving, Most Merciful!” And God's words to Ezekiel, “I say to the wicked man, 'You will surely die', but he then turn away from his sin and does what is just and right, ... does no evil, he will surely live, he will not die”. Surah 27:11, Ezekiel 33:14-15.

    So what is sin or what is wrong? Moses gave us God's Ten Commandments. Jesus told us to obey them. If you do not keep God's Law; then you will not know who God really is, nor what God has in-store for you.

The Ten Commandments; as spoken by God this day to me.

“I am the Lord your God, who can bring you out of the land of slavery to sin”.

“1) You shall have no other gods before me.”

“2) You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above nor on the earth beneath nor in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them nor worship them.”

“3) You shall not misuse my name; for I will hold you to your oath.”

“4) Remember my Sabbath Day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labour and do your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to me.; for I rested on the seventh day; after I created the Heaven and Earth; all that is in them. Close your businesses and give your employee the day-off from work.”

“5) Honour your parents, both your mother and father; for you are not greater then the one whom gave birth to you.”

“6) You shall not murder.”

“7) You shall not commit adultery.”

“8) You shall not steal.”

“9) You shall not make false statements.”

“10) You shall not covet that which your neighbour has; regardless how he/she has obtain it.”

    The first four of these relate to you and God. The last six relate to you and your neighbour (other people).

    Jesus (Isa) said this: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it. Love your neighbour as yourself. All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40 (Deuteronomy 6:5, Leviticus 19:18).

    This: I have written, twenty years before this day; the Ten Commandments without the commands and the negatives.

“Our Lord Yahweh, Our God: We have no other gods nor do we make idols from the things You created. We seek only your love for your name is Holy. It pleases us to keep your Sabbath; for we know, You created all things in six days and rested on the seventh day.

We also love your image; that is our fellow man. Therefore; we will honour our parents and be kind to our neighbour. We will keep our marriages honourable and respect the property of others. Until the end of time, we will speak the truth and take pride in our neighbour's good fortune.” - John A. Clark

    Paul wrote this about the Law. “For it is not those who hear the Law who are righteous in God's sight, but those who obey the Law who will be declared righteous.” Romans 2:13.

    Muhammad spoke these words when teaching about Allah (God). “In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the World: Most Gracious. Most Merciful; Master of the Day of Judgment. You do we worship, and Your aid do we seek. Show us the straight way. The way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who do not go astray.” Surah 1:1-7.

    (and) “That was a People who have passed away. They shall reap the fruit of what they did, and you of what you do. Of their merits there is no question in your case! They say: 'Become Jews or Christians if you would be guided to salvation.' You say: 'Nay! I would rather the Religion of Abraham the True, and he joined not gods to Allah.' You say: 'We believe in Allah, and the revelation given to us and to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to all Prophets from their Lord: And we bow to Allah in Islam.' So if they believe as you believe they are indeed on the right path; but if they turn back, it is they who are in schism; but Allah will suffice you as against them, He is the All-Hearing the All-Knowing.” Meaning of the Holy Qur'an; Surah 2:134-137.

    “We believe in Allah, and the revelation ... to Moses and Jesus (Isa).” Moses was given the Ten Commandments on tablets of stone, written by God. And Jesus spoke that, this Law will not go away. If you obey the Ten Commandments, you can do no wrong, no sin. Even if you wish to sin, but you do not; then you will see God at work in your life.

    When we seek revenge (but we call it justice) and we stop and ask for God's judgement upon our anger and upon your plans to seek revenge; then God will tell us to obey the Commandments, even when it hurts.

    Jesus said this about revenge: “You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbour and hate your enemy.'; but I tell you; Love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in Heaven.” Matthew 5:43-45.

    John the Baptizer (Yahya) spoke about Jesus in these words; “He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.” Matthew 3:11.

    When you turn to God for mercy and forgiveness for your sins,- you are baptize with the Holy Spirit. When you obey God, when it hurts, when justice of man is not with you, when you stand alone for God's Commandments and obey God; you will be baptize with fire. This Fire will burn the sin out of you. The more you burn the more men will hate you and the more you will see God. The more you will understand what God wants from you and all peoples. Then you will be the son or daughter of God. “Pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.” This Fire is man made hatred; put upon you for obeying God. Yet, you do not seek revenge.

    When I fail in this it prove that I am a hypocrite. “Why do you (I) look at the sin in your (my) brother's life, yet pay no attention to the sin in your (my) life. First get right with God, then help your brother.” Jesus (Immanuel,Isa). This is Jesus talking to me.

The Teaching – written by man   ( page 4)

    In 'the Message' we are told to obey God's Law – The Ten Commandments. But when people disobey the Law; we have a All Merciful, Most Gracious God to go to for – forgiveness. When we turn in Faith to God, the Creator, for – forgiveness; we are forgiven. This is called salvation.

    Salvation is the act of saving a person; setting free a soul from sin and eternal punishment. This is an act of Grace from God. It is not the end nor all we need to do. Once we ask for God's Grace, we need to acknowledge God each and every day by obeying God's Ten Commandments.

    Wanting not to obey or assume you are, save be grace, that you need not work for the continuing of God's salvation; so that , you do not obey the Law: so then; what do you believe?

  1. Can you have another god, other than the One that save you?

  2. Are you now allow to have an idol to worship?

  3. Are you allow to misuse God's name? (Would you like a person to misuse your name?)

  4. Can you rewrite the order of God's creation; so that the Sabbath need not be obey?

  5. Will you start mistreating your Parents?

  6. Will you start committing murder?

  7. Will you start mistreating your spout?

  8. Will you start take things that you do not own?

  9. Will you start telling lies?

  10. Will you start covet your neighbour's possessions?

If by change you think you may do these things – Why did you ask for – forgiveness?

    James, the brother of Jesus, spoke of deeds; (Deeds is what we do to grow strong in God's word and Law.) “As the body without the Spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.” James 2:26.

    Some believe that Jesus died for our sins; so that we need not to do: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honour and glory and praise.” Revelation 5:12. “Christ (Jesus) died for the ungodly.” Romans 5:6. “How if we died with Christ (Jesus), we believe that we will also live with him.” Romans 6:8.

    Peter, Jesus' friend, said this about suffering; “For it is commendable if a man bear up under the pain of unjust suffering because he is conscious of God. But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. To this you were called, because Christ suffer for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.” 1 Peter 2:19-21.

    If we are to follow in Jesus' steps, we would obey God's Law (Ten Commandments); just as Jesus did; even if it hurts, or gets us killed.

( page 5)

    Muhammad spoke: “Those who believe and those who suffer exile and fought and strove and struggled in the path of Allah' – that have the hope of the Mercy of Allah: and Allah is Oft – forgiving, Most Merciful.” Surah 2:218. And also this: “Those who believe in the Qur'an, and those who follow the Jewish scriptures, and the Christians, and Sabians, and who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord: on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” Surah 2:62.

    Ask yourself this: 'Why would God want me in heaven, if I am not willing to obey; especially when there are so many who are willing to obey?' They are warning you and me that disobeying leads to death.

    “When tempted, no one should say, 'God is tempting me'. For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, give birth to death.” James 1:13-15.

    “It is He (Allah) who sent down to you in truth the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the Criterion (of Judgement between right and wrong). Then those who reject faith in the Signs of Allah will suffer the severest penalty, and Allah is Exalted in Might, Lord of Retribution.” Surah 3:3-4.

    Paul said; “No longed I live, but Christ that live in me.” Galatians 2:20. Christ obey the Law; so how can Christ live in us if we disobey the Law?

    Christ means 'Anointed One'. You become anointed when you asks God (Allah) for forgiveness of your sins of disobeying of the Law. If you know the truth, but fine a reason to reject the truth; for human acceptance, then why; would the Holy Spirit (your Anointing) stay with you while you practice sin?

    Without obeying God; your future in the Hereafter is your greatest loss. Therefore ask God, 'the Creator', “Is this person who writes about obeying your Law (the Ten Commandments with your Sabbath), Right? Do I need to obey the Law, given to Moses on the Mount, to maintain my forgiveness and righteousness?”

    “And for their Covenant We raised over them the towering height of Mount Sinai; and on another occasion; We said, 'Enter the gate with humility'; and once again We commanded them: 'Do not transgress in the matter of the Sabbath.'. And We took from them a solemn Covenant.” Surah 4:154

    “Those who believe, those who follow the Jewish scriptures and the Sabians, Christians, Magians, and Polytheists – Allah will judge between them on the Day of Judgement: for Allah is Witness of All things.” Surah 22:17.

(page 6)

    Muhammad teaches that Allah – God will judge us no matter who we are. I could be an antagonist to lead you astray; or a servant, messenger to lead you to obey the Creator. So I tell you; to ask of God – Allah: of what I say: 'Is it RIGHT?' It is your life you may be destroying.

    Now if what I say is true; then you have been told; but if what I say, you say it is wrong: ask yourself this: “If I do what my enemy does, if I wage war because my cause is right, and if my enemy says, his cause is right; then who is wrong?”

    If you do wrong, how can justice win? Evil equals evil; and Right equals right.

    “They rejected Faith: that they uttered against Mary a grave false charge. That they said in boast, 'We killed Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah', but they did not kill him, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no certain knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they did not kill him. Nay: Allah raised him up unto Himself: and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise.” Surah 4:156-158.

    So Christ was raised up unto Himself – Allah, Exalted in Power, Wise. Therefore we follows Christ – to our death, we will not die, but we too will be raised up to Himself – Allah, God Almighty.

    It is not what we believe, that give us resurrection; but it is what we Live in Faith – that God Is, that gives us resurrection. And we trust in God, that is what brings meaning to our mortal life.

Postword by John A. Clark

    No person is without sin, but those of us who know of God; are without reason.

    First seek God's kingdom – the life hereafter, and God's righteousness, then all things will be given to us. -A promise from God – Allah.

    Sabbath – starts at sundown on Friday and ends on sun down Saturday night; the seventh day.

    “The Sabbath was only made (Strict) for those who disagreed ( as to its observance); but Allah will judge between them on the Day of Judgement, as to their differences.” Surah 16:124.

    A message from God, to the peoples of this earth. Given to me in 2005, January.  --  John A. Clark.
