Zechariah 14:9 and Islamic Monotheism

Bible (Zechariah 14:9) prophesies Islamic Monotheism will prevail over whole earth!

BIBLE PROPHESIES WORSHIP OF ALLAH ALONE WILL PREVAIL OVER WHOLE EARTH :
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem 
Allahumma Swalli Alaa Sayyidina Muhammadin wa Alaa Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim

Zechariah 14:9 The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name (NIV)

According to Zechariah 14:9 Only God, God the Father (1 Timothy 1:17) the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob (Peace be upon him) will be worshipped on the earth. And the verse suggest, Only HIS Name Will be Worshipped. it says ‘there will be one LORD ‘, not three Lords who share equal glory and power!!!. Zechariah 14:9 is Islamic monotheism.

This will establish True worshippers and true worship on the earth and false worshippers and false worship will come to an end in the time of Messiah Son of Mary (Peace be upon them).

John 4:23 But the time is coming–indeed it’s here now–when true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. (NLT)

1 Timothy 1:17 All honor and glory to God forever and ever! He is the eternal King, the unseen one who never dies; he alone is God. Amen. (NLT)


CHRIST IS A SERVANT OF ELOHI:

Acts 3:13 The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus. 

Acts 24:14 However, I admit that I worship the God of our ancestors as a follower of the Way, which they call a sect. I believe everything that is in accordance with the Law and that is written in the Prophets, (NIV)

Christian Evangelists try to argue that Zechariah 14:9 is about Jesus Christ. But as a fact, the verse speaks about God of Abraham God the Father. According to Trinity, Father is not son, son is not Father, Father and son are not Holy Spirit vice versa.

A Hadith (Islamic Tradition) is giving Same Message :
Sunan Abu Dawud Book 37, Number 4310:

Narrated Abu Huraira (May Allah be well pleased with him) :

The Prophet (Peace and blessings of Allah Be upon him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (pbuh). He will descend (to the earth). When you see him, recognize him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizya. (Means Christ will make an end to all forms of Lawlessness and Unbelief- groups that annuls laws)

“Allah will cause to perish all religions except Islam” (see Zechariah 14:9).

He will destroy the Antichrist  (see 2 Thessalonians 2:8-9) and will live on the earth for forty years (on the Throne of David ,see Acts 13:34) and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.

“Then Jesus Will Die”  See Matthew 16:28 “Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.”

Most of the times narrating a future event, Christ was spoken in parables. Matthew 16:28 is Christ speaking about himself, that he will not taste death until he rule the world on David’s throne (Peace be upon them).  If this “some” who will not taste death is anyone other than Christ, then they would be living among us preaching the Gospel and leading the Church (According to Christianity). Many Christians who claimed to have Holy Spirit, and are one body  in Christ should have known such a disciple who was standing with Christ and is living today. But as a matter of fact, this is Christ speaking about himself!, and he will die after he rule for 40 years on the Throne of David, just as Prophet David (King David Peace be upon him) died at the end of his kingdom and his son inherited his position!. Second coming Christ is described by the Bible as Son of Man (Son of David) relating his physical lineage, and Islam prophesies Jesus will marry and will have children, just as the Bible agrees Jesus is coming on David’s Throne , sure blessings of David”

Acts 13:34 I will give you the holy and sure blessings promised to David.’

One of the Blessings God given to David (alaihissalam) was righteous progeny.

See Isaiah 53:10 he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.

*Comments in the bracket from Jouhar Ali Naqshbandi Al-Hassani and verses quoted are those which Christians consider it points to Messiah, but we do see many chapters in Isaiah referring to the Last Prophet, Nabi Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam.

1. God

There is one God, who exists eternally in three distinct but equal persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God is unchangeable in his holiness, justice, wisdom and love. He is the almighty Creator; Saviour and Judge who sustains and governs all things according to his sovereign will for his own glory.  (Ref: fiec.org.uk)

According to this Theory,  God is One (Agree) who eternally exist in three separate (Distinct) people. So the three cannot be Gods, if we follow this theory, we can see four persons. Person-1 God Elohim, Person 2-Father in Whom Elohi Exist ,Person three Christ in whom Elohi exist, Person four Holy Spirit in whom Elohi exist.  This is the problem with this doctrine. It is the Elohi which the scripture calls God the Father,  As the scriptures only call GOD-the Father as the Only God.  (see James 1:27,Pslam 68:5 , John 4:23-24). So the issue is: If God the Father Exist (the Only God) as Christ and Holy Spirit?, in that case the circle in the middle of Trinity diagram must say: God the Father is Christ and God the Father is Holy Spirit and Christ and Holy Spirit are distinct, and both are God the Father!. But this is not the case in Trinity. as you see a fourth circle in the middle of the trinity diagram!.

Below are the evidences that reject the Trinity and Affirms Islamic Monotheism.

God Exist in others,  see: 

Joel 2:28 And afterwards, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.

John 4:24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

1 Corinthians 3:16 Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?

Isaiah 42:1 Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations.

John 14:10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.

HOLY SPIRIT:
Isaiah 11:2 The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him– the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the LORD

NO EQUAL THREE PERSONS IN GLORY AND POWER:

God Himself is Holy and He is Spirit (Means God is Holy Spirit), but the Other Person Who is Holy Spirit is a Servant of God!

Holy Spirit is mentioned here in Isaiah, Holy Spirit is not Equal to God-Elohi-The Father of Fatherless. Because This Spirit fear the Lord. If this Holy Spirit is God and Share Equal Glory and Power, He (the Holy Spirit) does not need to fear the Lord. As God does not Fear Himself.

As I quoted Joel and Corinthians, God’s spirit exist in some people does not make them God or Deity.

Quran 50:16 And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein.

God is Closer to His Servants and those who follow God’s Will, God Will reveal them Himself ,as Stated in Quran and Hadith, as in the book of Joel .

GOD IS UNCHANGEABLE IN HIS WISDOM:

Mark 13:32 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

As I stated earlier and written in my earlier articles , I proved that, God”s Wisdom never change.

John 15:15 I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.

GOD IS UNCHANGEABLE IN HIS HOLINESS:

Mark 10:18  Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good–except God alone.

GOD OF ABRAHAM MAKES THE MESSIAH:

Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor because He suffered death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.

 
Psalm 8:5 Yet You have made him a little lower than God, And You crown him with glory and majesty!
Trinitarians quote John 10:30 “I and Father Are One” to say Jesus is God and Equal to the Father. This is another misunderstanding and misinterpretation. Because the context Christ said those words is “The Spirit of God dwells in him”  (See John 14:10, Isaiah 42:1) just as He is One with God the Father as He is One with the disciples (John 14:20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.) God’s Spirit Dwells in other Holy ones too (see 1 Corinthians 3:17 and Joel 2:28) which make them to do things greater than Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) had done!
John 14:12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
As the Christians take John 10:30 (I and Father are one, literally), then if we take rest of the verses like John 14:12 literally, then we have to say, those who are coming after powerful and glorious than Christ. But thats not how Spiritual Authority works. There is Only One true Power-that is God’s Power, and God can do Greater work through others than He Almighty did through Christ. So God Remain as One Showing His Power differently through His Creations and Servants.Or else you will have to say those who do greater work than Christ must be greater deities! Misinterpreting One Deity (God the Father)’s work and taking His Servants as Deities!
John 14:28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.
Matthew 23:9 And do not call anyone on earth ‘Father,‘ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.

Here, we do see when Christ returns to God, He says God is Greater than him, as Christians take Hebrews 2:9 to say, Jesus now became fully God after his ascension, then he suppose to have said: “For the Father and I are equal in Glory and Power”, rather he said the truth: “the Father is Greater than I”. So the Glory Christ received from God is a Spiritual Rank higher than Moses (Peace be upon him) according to the New Testament and s Promise of the Kingdom similar to David’s Kingdom (Peace be upon him) in his second Coming!. If the glory Jesus attained was God’s Glory, then God Who is King of Kings does not need to come on a small throne of David (Peace be upon him) in second coming. Such coming is again making one self lower than God and Angels!. So we can see Father is Eternally Greater than Jesus (Peace be upon him) as he ascended to the heavenly world! (Acts 13:34)

John 5:30 By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my Judgement is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.

As we see, God the Father (the Only True God) does not Share His Glory and Power (Isaiah 42:8 and 48:11) with anyone. But He Use His Servants  (Jesus, Holy Spirits, Angels and Prophets) for His Works According to His Own Sovereign Will.  And He Himself Remain as One God, ONE Person, ONE Deity and One LORD eternally, and this Nature of His Dot Change. Because God is Unchangeable in His Holiness, Wisdom and Sovereignty!.

THE UNSEEN GOD: (See 1 Timothy 1:17 and 6:16)

Deuteronomy 18:16-18) For this is what you asked of the LORD your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said, “Let us not hear the voice of the LORD our God nor see this great fire anymore, or we will die.” The LORD said to me: “What they say is good. I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites, and I will put my words in his mouth. He will tell them everything I command him.

 

God Promised Prophets, not Incarnation. Because seeing God’s Fire or His Voice is Death to wicked nations God Promised to Put His Words in the Mouth of the Prophets and His Spirit in His Servants and to Aid His Servants with the Holy Spirit (His Eternal Representative, alaihiswalathu wa salam)

 Matthew 16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.” Jesus then left them and went away.

So who is the LORD Whose Name will be the Only Name in Zechariah 14:9 ?

Zechariah 14:9 The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name.

Is that Lord Messiah Christ?, the Bible says not!, If that Lord is Messiah Jesus (Peace be upon him) then they should be worshipping Christ and regard him as God on that Day, as Christ will be on earth among them, so if they see Jesus as true God, then they should be worshipping the Deity close to them. But they are worshipping only the True God that Day, that is Elohi-God the Father the Only God (according to Old Testament) . So why they not worshipping Jesus who will be among their midst?. Because Jesus is not God, they will only revere him as as a Prophet and Messiah. As the Hadith (Narration) of Islam teach.

See Zechariah 8:7-8 This is what the LORD Almighty says: “I will save my people from the countries of the east and the west.I will bring them back to live in Jerusalem; they will be my people, and I will be faithful and righteous to them as their God.”

God the Father is Greater than Jesus (John 14:28), True worshippers will worship the Father (John 4:23-24), and God Almighty Will Accomplish this through His Servant Messiah Christ ,Jesus (See Isaiah 42:1, Acts 3:13). As the Trinity suggest, Jesus is not the Father Vice versa , Holy Spirit is not Jesus vice verse, Father is not Holy Spirit Vice versa!

This is enough for those who fear a tremendous day:

Quran 7:59 Indeed, We sent Nuh (Noah) to his people and he said: “O my people! Worship Allah! You have no other Ilah (God) but Him. (La ilaha ill-Allah: none has the right to be worshipped but Allah). Certainly, I fear for you the torment of a Great Day!”

Quran 39:13 Say, “Indeed I fear, if I should disobey my Lord, the punishment of a tremendous Day.”

Quran 46:21 And mention, [O Muhammad], the brother of ‘Aad, when he warned his people in the [region of] al-Ahqaf – and warners had already passed on before him and after him – [saying], “Do not worship except Allah. Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a terrible day.”
