Is the Promised Messiah, the return / re-advent of Jesus (pbuh)?
Let’s look into the matter now… my dear Christians – please join me.
Prophecies of second coming of Jesus Christ in Bible Compared
“And as he sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying; tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them. Take heed that no man deceive you…. And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places.” (Matt. 24:3-7)
My Comment: The world wars one and two of the past and the rumor of third world war today, and famines at certain locations and earthquakes at other are adequate proof that this sign has been fulfilled.
Condition of Faith in the latter day has been described in the following words:
“Thus know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God: Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.” (2 Timothy 3:1-5)
Aren’t these the mark of current age?
Another proof: ‘Only after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.” (Math. 24:29)
We have already seen how the eclipses of the Sun & the moon proved this part of the prophecy: the sun be darkened and the moon shall not give her light
Now coming to the later part: and the stars shall fall from heaven
Wasn’t the last century rife with comets, meteor showers and eclipses? His Holiness Prophet Ahmad (as) was born in 1835 and departed from this world in 1908: All during his life time we saw ‘the stars falling from heaven’ ; leme show you the proof:
In 1832, The Bielids comet passed very close to the earth.
Haley’s comet appeared in 1835.
The Comet of 1843 had a tail of 200 million miles long.
In 1845, the Bielids comet was observed to break in two. Meteor showers observed from this comet were observed in 1830, 1838, and in 1885. 39,546 meteors were observed in 4 hours.
Another great comet appeared in 1861, which could be seen in broad daylight.
In 1866-67, Leonid Comit caused the most spectacular showers of modern times.
The Great comet of 1882, one of the brightest of modern times passed within a third million miles of the sun.
Holmes Comet appeared in 1899.
Morehouse Comet of 1908 showed the most rapid variations in appearance.
June 1908 witnessed the greatest meteorite fall in historic times took place in Siberia.
To Conclude: Yes, the prophecies match. There’s absolutely no doubt about it… but again…
Jesus very clearly knew and he very clearly described as how those who accept the Second Messiah would be treated. Bible records his prophecy about them here:
“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted and shall kill you, and ye shall be hated of all nations for my names sake.” (Math.24:9)
Jesus Christ describes the fate of those who were to accept the one who came in his name:
…but, before all these things, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my names sake. And you shall be betrayed by both parents and brethren and kinsfolk and friends, and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my names sake. But there shall not a hair on your head perish.” (Luke 21:12, 16, 17, 18).
What a vivid and frightening description Christ presents of the time of the Messiah of the latter days. They were to be persecuted, betrayed by their own families, murdered, tortured, imprisoned and treated in the cruelest ways. Yet these atrocities will in no way affect the advancement of the movement, as Christ says, “Not a hair on your head perish.”
This is exactly the way in which the people of the Promised Messiah (the Ahmadiyya community) are being treated… yet as told we have continued to gain strength and more converts. Weren’t the followers of Jesus persecuted in the first 300 years of Christianity? Same is the fate written for the followers of the returned Messiah too!
Aye Christians! Doesn’t this string a chord in your heart yet?
Again Christ states:
“And then shall all of the tribes of the earth mourn.” (Math. 24:30)
Here Christ presents clear proof that the Promised Messiah will not agree with contemporary thought and will not support any one group, either religious or political. He, through his wisdom and call to mankind to reform or be destroyed, will cause much discern and worry among the nations.
The Promised Messiah, called everybody to abandon the violence, and to spread and defend our faith of truth by means of logic, intelligent arguments and love. Again Christ told us that the Promised One was to use this method to reach mankind.
“I will give you a mouth and wisdom and all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.” (Luke 21:15)
Regarding the place of the appearance of the Promised Messiah, Christ states:
“For as lightening cometh from the east and shineth unto the west, so shall the coming of the son of man be.” (Math.24:27)
Jesus was in Jerusalem when he mentioned this prophecy, and Qadian, the birth place of Hazrat Ahmad is due east of Jerusalem. The Bible gives special significance to the east in many places.
“And behold, the glory of God of Isreal came from the way of the east.” Ezekiel 43:2)
“there came wise men from the east” (Math 2:1)
‘And lo, the star which they saw in the east, went before them.” (Math.2:9)
“And I saw another angel ascending from the east.”(Rev7:2)
So why not join the community of the Promised Messiah, accept him and save yourself?
Ark of the Promised Messiah to save the believers of the Latter days
In addition to the warning Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Messiah also mentioned this good news:
I inform you and convey to you the glad tidings that the Sailor, Who is the Lord of the heaven and the earth, has heard the supplication of those confronted with the tempest and has fulfilled the promise He made in His Holy Word to save His vessel at the time of the tempest. He has appointed one of His servants that is to say, this humble one who is now speaking to you, and has explained to him the devices to weather the storm and that would render it unnecessary to throw overboard the boxes of valuables. The time is near when heaven will call out, as is mentioned in the Holy Quran:
‘O earth, swallow thy water, and O sky, cease raining.’ And the water was made to subside and the matter was ended. And the Ark came to rest on al-Judi. (Al Quran 11:45)
But right now the flood is at its height.
At the approach of this flood God Almighty appointed this humble one and commanded,
“…build thou the Ark under Our eyes and according to Our directions.’
This Ark would be in no danger from the tempest. It would be supported by God’s hand. This then is the Ark of pure Islam to which I call the people to board. If you are awake, arise and board this Ark quickly for the flood is raging upon the earth and every life is in danger. [In Aina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam, Ruhani Khazain, Vol.5, pp.261-262, by the Promised Messiah]
There are exactly 10 conditions to accept before you can board this ARK: Click to Know them
I invite Christians of all nations to accept the Promised One who has been sent in the spirit of Jesus. Jesus told his followers to judge the tree by its fruit. So it behooves all Christians to come and taste this fruit before passing judgment.
You will find that for today’s problems, the only acceptable interpretation of religious principles is what the Promised Messiah has presented. So come and see the fruits of the tree of the second Messiah and join in the effort of bringing peace, tranquility and paradise on earth. This is the real pursuit of happiness for all mankind. If not you, your next generation or the one after that will accomplish this goal because, “It has been written and so shall be done”.
Why the Promised Messiah considered as the Re-advent of Jesus Christ (pbuh) / Isa Maseeh (as)?
Please read this part of Tadhkirah [The English rendering of the divine revelations, dreams and visions vouchsafed to Hadrath Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, The Promised Messiah, Returned Jesus (pbuh)]:
Of the wonders which God has bestowed upon me, one is that I have met Jesus, the Messiah several times in a state of perfect wakefulness which is called a vision. I have talked to him and have ascertained from him the nature of his real claim and teaching. A major point, which is worth attention, is that Jesus the Messiah is so disgusted with the doctrines of Atonement, Trinity, and Sonship, as if these are the great impostures that have been fashioned against him. This evidence of vision is not without support.
[People! Haven’t we got enough proofs in the Holy Bible, the Holy Qur’an and historical and current evidences to support this point?] The Promised Messiah continues…
I have seen Hadrath ‘Isa [Jesus], on whom be peace, several times in my dreams and have met him several times in a state of vision. He has eaten with me on the same table.
Once, I asked him about the trial which had befallen his people. He was overwhelmed with awe and recalled the greatness of Allah the Almighty, and started proclaiming His Glorification and Holiness. He pointed to the earth and said: ‘I am from the earth and am innocent of the allegations attributed to me.’ In short, I found him a courteous and humble man. [Nurul-Haqq, part 1, p. 41, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 8, pp. 56–57]
The Promised Messiah adds:
I believe firmly that if a sincere seeker after truth would come and stay with me for a period and would wish to meet the Messiah in a vision, he would be able to do so through the blessings of my supplications and attention. He can also talk to him and receive his affirmation of what I have stated for I am the person in whose soul the soul of Jesus, the Messiah, resides by way of reflection. [Tuhfa-e-Qaisariyyah, p. 21, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 12, p. 273]
People of the world will not understand this matter because they lack faith in heavenly mysteries but the ones who have experienced [those mysteries] will certainly find this truth. (hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad)
Everyone has been invited to satisfy himself through signs about this claim if he desires to.
I have gathered courage to write this much because of the true love and true respect I have for Jesus, the Messiah, in my heart—along with the statements which I heard from the tongue of Jesus, the Messiah, and the message he gave me.
My body trembles with this thought and every particle of my being becomes restless. How can the word ‘curse of God’ be imagined to apply to the pure heart of the Messiah even for a second!!! Woe! A thousand woes, that such a belief be harboured for a beloved of God like Jesus, the Messiah, that his heart deserved the implication of the meaning of curse at any time.
This grave error was committed at a time when people did not ponder over the meaning of curse.
Some background to the story:
Christians subscribe to the doctrine that God so loved the world that, to bestow salvation upon mankind, He placed the burden of the sins of the whole of mankind upon His son Jesus, and made him accursed by bringing about his death upon the cross. According to some, Jesus (as) passed three days and three nights in hell, as atonement for the sins of mankind, and was then restored to life, and thus provided the means of salvation for those who might believe in him.
Gods don’t die and Prophets can’t die an accursed death
The Holy Bible says, `Death on the Cross’ means an ‘accursed death’. Did we not read, ‘for he that is hanged is accursed of God’ (Deut. 21:23)?
The concept of curse is related to the heart, and a person can be called accursed only if in truth his heart turns away from God, and becomes black, and is bereft of God’s mercy, and is deprived altogether of the love of God and is emptied of all recognition of God and, becoming blind and bereft like Satan, is filled with the poison of misguidance, and retains not a ray of the light of the love and recognition of God, and cuts asunder from all relationship with God, and is filled with rancor and hatred and disgust and enmity towards God, so that God becomes his enemy and is disgusted with him, and he is disgusted with God – It is thus clear that the concept of curse is vicious and unholy.
Now you tell me, can it apply to anyone like Jesus?
I cant’ stand to wait for your answer and can tell you right away that: It cannot apply to any righteous one who entertains the love of God in his heart. Then, how can we even think of using this expression for a holy soul like Jesus?
Tell me! Can it even be imagined that the heart of Jesus (as) had, in truth, turned away from God? And had denied God? And was disgusted with God? And had become Satan and had become the enemy of God and was plunged into the darkness of disbelief and denial?
Tell me now! Answer me.
Well, I can confirm it to you that: Such a concept is not only inconsistent with the station of prophethood and messengership of Jesus (peace be upon him), but is also inconsistent with his claim of excellence and holiness, and love, and recognition of the Divine, mentioned repeatedly in the Gospels.
This is just plain nonsense! Anybody who loves Jesus, the Messiah will never entertain this thought of Atonement — can’t agree. Not sure about you but I am rejecting to whatever nonsense beliefs you have about His Holiness Prophet Jesus: Peace be upon him!
It could never apply to any righteous person who entertains love of God in his heart. Alas! Christians did not ponder over the significance of a curse when they invented this belief; else, it was impossible for them to have used such a cursed word for a righteous man like Jesus.
Jesus was a great holy prophet and I want to prove it to you that such a great blessed soul can’t be accursed to die on a cross or burn in the hell!
A study of the Gospels reveals that Jesus (as) affirmed that he was the light of the world, was a guide, and had an exalted relationship of love with God, and had been bestowed a holy birth by God. Then how can the unholy concept of curse be applied to the heart of Jesus (as) in view of his permanent and holy relationship with God?
Think about it my dear, please. May peace be upon you.
Jesus (peace be upon him) was a Divine Messenger, a favored and a Holy Prophet of God… It is heights of injustice to conceive, even for a moment, that such a chosen one was hanged upon the cross and, by dying on it, became accursed, for whatever reason it might be.
Prophets may be nailed to the cross, but if death by crucifixion is truly an accursed death, it becomes necessary that such chosen servants of God should be delivered from such a death, and should be safeguarded against its stain. Agree? I bet you agree with me, don’t you?
And, we have already seen how Jesus surivived Crucifixion, all thanks to the Gracious God, and then lived on to complete his mission and later died … Read more here “Jesus is dead”
Now it is the call of decency that this mistake be corrected very soon and the honour of this elite beloved of God and His chosen one be restored. How out of place is it that, to create a fictional basis for our own salvation, we put a mark of disobedience on such a beloved of God and believe that at a certain time he rebelled against and digressed from God.
Hebrew in particular, and take the experts’ testimony of all the lexicons to ascertain that someone is called accursed only on the condition that his heart has moved away from the recognition, love and nearness of God; and rather, the enmity of God, instead of His love, has been created in his heart. That is the reason that in the Arabic lexicon accursed is the name of Satan.
How can this ignoble name, that has become a part of Satan, be attributed to a pure heart? The Messiah has cleared himself from this in my vision. Common sense also dictates that the status of the Messiah is above and beyond such an allegation. The implication of curse always relates to the heart, and this is a clear matter that we cannot name a near one and a beloved of God to be cursed or accursed in any sense of the word. This is the message of Jesus, the Messiah, which I am delivering. It is enough proof of my truth that the signs shown at my hands are beyond human power.
Please reflect with your bright cognizance, if there can be any greater disrespect in the world than to name someone renegade from God and the enemy of God, which is the implication of a curse. Therefore, how grave an insult it is that the one [ Jesus] whom the angels proclaim as ‘loved one of God’, and who emanated from the light of God, be termed as the one distanced from God and regarded as the enemy of God!! Woe that this disrespect of Jesus is embraced by 400 million people during this age!
Make an effort to exonerate Jesus.
I dare to submit to you—with the purest of intentions filled with the fear of God and truth—to clear Jesus the Messiah, with courageous resolve, of this stigma placed upon his honour.
Dear Christians: It is time to give up the convolutions of the doctrine of Trinity and its complicated and unreasonable history. It is time to try the simple yet elegant creed of Islam, ‘There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is a prophet of God!’
For Muslims, it is time to extend a cordial invitation to each and every Christian in the world, whether in the East or the West, in the words of the Holy Quran:
Say, ‘O People of the Book! come to a word equal between us and you — that we worship none but Allah, and that we associate no partner with Him, and that some of us take not others for Lords beside Allah.’ But if they turn away, then say, ‘Bear witness that we have submitted to God.’ (Al Quran 3:65)
It is time! It is time to remedy the mistakes made at Nicaea 1685 years ago!
The Promised Messiah adds:
“It has been disclosed to me through a vision that Hadrat ‘Isa (as) [Jesus] was apprised of the poisonous doctrines which have spread in the world through the Christians and thereby his soul was moved towards his spiritual descent upon the earth and, being deeply affected by the determination of his followers upon self-ruin, he desired a substitute who should resemble him and should be possessed of the same nature as himself as if he was the same.
The soul of Jesus was in restless on account more of the falsehoods that had been attributed to him in this age: Jews insisted more than ever that he was an impostor and a liar and that his birth was illegitimate and that is why he died on the cross. On the other hand, the Christians proclaimed that he was the son of God and even God himself, and that he had laid down his life on the cross for the salvation of mankind.
It was then that the soul of the Maseeh [Messiah] was moved and so he fervently desired the descent to the earth of one spiritually his like, in accordance with Allah’s will, and demanded to be exonerated from all these charges and beseeched God for a substitute.
So God Almighty responded to his agitation and sent his like into the world so that the promise, already made, should be fulfilled.
God, according to His promise, bestowed upon him one who resembled him and upon this one descended the resolve and qualities and spirituality of Maseeh [Messiah]. He and Messiah (as) were firmly bonded together as if the two were fashioned from the same essence and the attention of Maseeh made the heart of the other his own resting place so that he might fulfill his urge through him. In this manner the Promised Messiah took on the identity of Maseeh and the fervent designs of Messiah (as) descended upon him by virtue of which his coming was metaphorically described in the revelations as the coming of Maseeh. [A’ina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam, pp. 254–255, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 5, pp. 254–255]
This spiritual reflection, by coming in the likeness of the Messiah (as) Jesus, is called the Promised Messiah.
On account of the current troubles, it was only the advent of the Maseeh that was called for. It was his people who had been corrupted and among whom the qualities of the Antichrist had spread.
Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) claimed to be a spiritual representative of Jesus Christ (pbuh) following the same attitude in life which denounced the use of force and coercion in the name of religion, that is the spirit of Christianity or rather, should be the spirit of Christianity that was taught by Jesus (pbuh). This teaching was that in the face of coercion or oppression in the name of God, one should try to show patience and ‘if struck on one cheek, offer the other one as well’.
This form of sacrifice would eventually win more hearts than would be the case with the use of sword. This is exactly what the followers of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian (as) do and so we believe that he was true in his claim that he is a true representative of the spiritual Jesus Christ(as).
The prophecies related to the re-advent of Jesus, the son of Mary, have seen the light of day, and Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, received the following revelation from God
Ja’alnaaka al Masih Ibn Maryam
“We have made thee the Messiah, son of Maryam”
“For shedding the light of Islam in the Christian world he is called Messiah, the son of Mary;
For illuminating the hearts of Muslims with the light of Islam he is called Mahdi.”
And this is the very interpretation given by the person who was raised in the fulfillment of these prophecies, when he says:
Choon Mera Hukm Az Paey Quame Maseehee Dadah And
Maslahat Ra Ibn Maryam Name Man Binhadah And
i.e., As I have been given the light for the Christian people, the name of the son of Mary has been given to me for this reason.
Fortunate Is He Who Takes Lessons From The Plight Of Others (Hadithun Nabi)
The Promised Messiah says:
God Almighty has disclosed to me in a clear vision that the [second] advent of Ibn-e-Maryam (as), [the son of Mary] is indicated metaphorically in the Holy Qur’an. [Izala-e-Auham, p. 667, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 3, p. 460] See verse meaning: And when the son of Mary is mentioned as a parable, lo! Your People raise a clamour there at; (al-Zukhruf, 43:58).
My Lord informed me that the descent of Messiah Jesus in its true meaning is a reality but neither Muslims nor the Christians have not understood the reality that the descent is spiritual and not physical!
God said, “We have made you Isa Ibn-e-Maryam [Jesus, son of Mary] and Allah has power to do all that He wills.” [A’ina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam, p. 426, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 5, p. 426]
Maseeh Ibn-e-Maryam [Messiah, son of Mary], Messenger of Allah, has died and you have come in his spirit according to promise. [Arabic] [God’s promise will certainly be fulfilled. [Izala-e-Auham, pp. 561–562, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 3, p. 402]
Tell them: I have come in the footsteps of Jesus.
They will say: ‘We have not heard any such thing from our ancestors’
Respond to them that: Your knowledge is limited; God knows best. You are content with the letter and obscurity. The true reality has not been disclosed to you.
Then the Merciful Lord referred me and said, “You will pass through different periods with different companions and will behold distant progeny. We shall bestow upon you a good life; eighty years or thereabouts.” [Izala-e-Auham, pp. 632–635, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 3, pp. 441–443]
O People! This is the truth from your Lord. Then be not one among the disbelievers.
God said to the Promised Messiah: “I shall exhibit My flash and shall exalt you as a demonstration of My Power. I shall make you famous with honour to the ends of the earth and shall exalt your name and shall put your love in the hearts of the people.” [Tadhkirah]
Tell them: O ye disbelievers I am of the truthful ones; and you will see my Signs after a while.
We shall show them Our Signs all around them as well as in their own lives. Proof will be established and victory will be clear.
The person who has appeared in the name of Jesus, the Messiah, has come to rid the world of diverse innovations in faith. His purpose is to establish truth in the world with peace and tenderness, teach people the way of true love and obeisance to their Creator, He is also to instruct mankind in true mutual sympathy and to remove selfish malice and passions among them, and establish pure harmony—unadulterated by hypocrisy—among the good natured servants of God.
Message to the Christians from the re-advent of Christ:
As my community knows, God’s real purpose in sending me is to remove all the misconceptions and misleading teachings of Christianity and to bring people from all over the world to the true religion.
The fulfilment of thousands of prophecies published before hand is such a proof of my truth that it can not fail to convince an unprejudiced mind. (Vol. II E. R. 1903).
Hear! Ye Christians of Europe and America! And Ye Seekers after truth!
Know it for certain that the Messiah who was to come has come and it is he who is speaking to you at this moment.
Heaven and earth have shown signs and the prophecies of the holy prophets of God have seen their fulfillment. Almighty God has shown through me thousands of signs and has furnished arguments of my truth in every way. I say to you truly that if the heavenly signs, which have been shown on my hands, had been shown by Jesus (as), son of Mary, the Jews would have been saved from destruction, except such as were the sons of perdition. Who is not aware of the effect of Jesus (as)’ signs on the mind of the Jews?
Only one instance is sufficient to illustrate it: The case of Judas Iscariot, the favorite apostle for whom a throne had been promised in Heaven, but who apostatized even in the presence of the master. Not only did he by his apostasy deprive himself of the promised throne but he also threw Jesus (as) into innumerable difficulties.
All ye that are desirous of perpetual happiness and eternal salvation fly to me, for here is the fountain which will purge you of all impurities, and here you will find the salvation which is the fruit of certainty and a strong faith and perfect knowledge.
Know it for certain that your trust in the blood of Jesus (as) is a vain trust. Had he been crucified not once but a thousand times, even then he could not have saved you. For Salvation is in faith and love and certainty, not in the blood of a man.
Time is giving you the warning that the theory of a blood bath is false theory; therefore, repent of such beliefs while there is time, before you are called to stand before the throne of God. Almighty God has sent me in this age that I might bear witness that all faiths have become corrupt, and have been tainted with falsehood.
The truth of my testimony is sealed by the Divine authority; the witness I bear is confirmed by the Divine seal being impressed upon it. I’m afraid you might bring yourselves under the judgment of God by rejecting truth.
To me is given the spirit against which no one can stand. If you know that there is none among you who with the assistance of the spirit can withstand the Holy Spirit that has been given to me, be sure that your silence would bring you under the judgment of God. And peace be unto those who follow the truth.
And peace be unto those who follow the truth. . (Vol. II B. R. 1903).
The Promised Prophet (as) says to all:
I proclaim to all Muslims, Christians, Hindus and Aryas that I have no enemy in the world. I love mankind with the love that a compassionate mother has for her children; even more so. I am only the enemy of false doctrines which kill the truth (Ref: Roohani Khazain, Vol.17, Arbaeen, Pt.1, p.344)
It was revealed to him that he was the promised Reformer not only for the Muslims, Christians and Jews, but also for the Hindus, Buddhists, Confucians and Zoroastrians as predicted in their scripts.
He addressed the anticipation of the Messiah in the Christians & Muslims and all other world religions in the following words:
Remember very well that no one shall ever come down (after me) from heaven. All my opponents shall die and none shall ever see Jesus (as) coming down from heaven. Then God shall cause great consternation in their minds and they shall then say that the period of the dominance of the cross has also passed away and the way of life has changed completely, yet the son of Mary has not come down. Then in dismay the wise among them shall forsake this belief and three centuries from now shall not have passed when those who still await the coming shall relinquish altogether this conception. Then shall prevail only one religion over the whole world and there shall be only one religious leader. I came only to sow the seed which has been planted by my hand. It shall now grow and flourish and there is none who can hinder it. (Roohani Khazain, Vol. 20: Tazkiratush Shahadatain p.67 by the Promsised Messiah)
We had noted down earlier at the end of the crucifixion case of Jesus that…
NOTABLE NOTE: Neither the Jews, nor the Christians, have a firm belief that Jesus had died on the cross… And if take into consideration the Muslims of today, they have joined the Christians to agree that Jesus was taken up alive by God to be sent back at a later time. God Almighty, to test the belief of the righteous, had created such circumstances wherefrom confusion arose and people assumed that Jesus (as) did die on the cross, but they had no clear proof available to satisfy them, however. The evidence was always clearly proved through Qur’an, which has now at the time of the Promised Messiah, become available as was expected.
Reasons to keep the secret till this day (I know you’re thinking this, surely): Tell me then, Isn’t there a time for everything?
God Almighty has caused the proofs and the reasons to be remained hidden, only to be manifested in the days of the Promised Messiah and only by himself were they shown out in the light. The Promised Messiah is none other than the returned Messiah Jesus. He himself has established, as clearly as the bright day, that Jesus did not die the cursed death on the cross.
The Promised Messiah, called for Muslims to abandon the sword and violence, and to spread and defend Islam by means of logic, intelligent arguments and love. Again Christ told us that the Promised One was to use this method to reach mankind.
“I will give you a mouth and wisdom and all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.” (Luke 21:15)
What a clear description of the method used by Hazrath Ahmad to propagate Islam. In his life time, he wrote 84 books, and issued an open challenge to all his opponents to produce writings as good as his. His opponents avoided these challenges.
