God has a Plan, Part 5

If you need to go to the beginning, Click Here.

God’s Provision is a Person

Principle 5: The solution is not just the Cross but a divine person, Isa, who was anointed by the Holy Spirit and called the Word of God.

Exactly who was—and is—Isa – Jesus Christ? I understand what Muhammad was trying to counter in his day. But based on the best research available today, the Jewish/Christian concepts of God in Saudi Arabia in Muhammad’s day differed greatly from what is presented in the Towrah and Injeel. Realize that there was not a translation of either Towrah or Injeel in Arabic at the time of Muhammad (MHRIP). (Allah, Allat and Ba’al (Lord) or son—separate vid)

Let’s look at what is revealed in the Bible and the Qur’an about Isa. Both say Isa is the Word of God, who is anointed and aided by the Holy Spirit.

It’s interesting—and very logical –that God’s provision is not a philosophical or a religious idea, not a list of rules to follow or a way of life. It’s a person.


Isaiah 61:1—The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor…to proclaim freedom for the captives.

Here the prophet Isaiah talks about the coming Christ, or Messiah. Isaiah prophesied that the Messiah would come to proclaim freedom to the captives.


Psalm107:20—He sent forth his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave.

God sent Christ—the Word—to the world to heal us from sin and so deliver us from sin’s destruction.


John 1:1, 14—In the beginning was the Word, and the Ward was with God, and the Word was God…The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only...full of grace and truth.

God’s Word was with Him for all eternity. After all, He was always able to speak. He sent this Word to us as a flesh-and-blood person to save us from our sins.


House of Imran 3:45—When the angels said, “Mary, God gives thee good tidings of a Word from Him whose name is Messiah, Isa, son of Mary; high honored shall he be in this world and the next, near stationed to God.”

Christ is the Word of God. He was highly honored when He was in this world and that now He is in the closest possible position with God, or, as the Injeel puts it, “at the right hand of God” (Hebrews 10:12).

Gabriel came to the Virgin Mary to tell her she would bear God’s Word, Christ. What other prophet has ever been born of a virgin? Pause. Chits is holy, He was placed on this earth in a holy fashion. It was foretold by God in the Towrah (Genesis 3:15) immediately after Adam and Eve’s disobedience. God said the seed of the woman—not the seed of the man—shall crush Satan’s head.

When a word is uttered by God, it has not been severed from God. In this case we are talking about the Word of God. There is something extremely unique about Christ. As a “word,” He is an embodiment of what God wants to communicate to us. As an eternal person, He is now right next to God, never apart from God, and thus a part of God.

A man once asked his friend, “Which came first: God or His Word?” “God obviously came first,” said his friend. “Oh, was God dumb at the beginning and unable to speak?” “No, He could speak,” the friend insisted.

“Of course, because God is perfect. So at no time was He unable to speak and be without His Word. So Christ, the Word of God, has always been with God.”

(I know it is difficult for you to believe that Christ, who came in the flesh to our world, is the same God as the one God. This is because theologians who were commentators of the Qur’an legitimately hated the idols that were worshiped along with God (Allah) many centuries ago. As a result, they fell in the trap of building their theology on the doctrine that God is a monolith who cannot be explained or defined because nothing is like Him. In this way they present God as unfree, unable to do what He wants or to appear to His creatures in the form He chooses.)

Let’s continue by plowing through some verses that speak to who Christ is.

Towrah Micah 3:8—AS for me (the Messiah), I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the LORD, and with justice and might, to declare to Jacob his transgression, to Israel his sin.

Zabur Psalm 139:7—Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?

Injeel Revelation 19:13—He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.

Acts 20:28—“Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God which he bought with his own blood.”

Here we see that God purchased believers with His own blood. Can God bleed? That shows the oneness of God, His Word, and His Spirit.

Qur’an Cow 2:87—We (God) gave Isa son of Mary the clear sings (miracles and God’s words), and confirmed (sustained) him with the Holy Spirit.

In other words, God gave Jesus His words and sustained Him always with His Holy Spirit.
