The world has been experiencing the fruit of Muhammed for more than 1400 years. And it’s amazing to me that people are confused as to the nature of his religion.
It’s common knowledge, if you want to know what the root of something is, look at its fruit.
Fruit reveals the root.
Approximately 600 years before Muhammed came on the scene, sharing with his world the revelations he purportedly had received from God, Jesus made this statement:
“Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.” (Matthew 7:15-20 NLT)
Every day there is a news item about the group ISIS. Apparently these self proclaimed defenders of both the Islam faith and Muhammed’s reputation believe their sole purpose in life is to eradicate every person who is not a friend of their Prophet, or a follower of their religion.
So how come people are still so confused about who the real Savior is?
By their fruits you will know them.
Not once did Jesus, the Prince of Peace, ever instruct his followers to kill, maim, annihilate, bruise, or even look crossways at an “infidel”; i.e. – someone who didn’t share His beliefs.
In fact, Jesus was known as a “friend to sinners”.
“Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.” (Luke 15:1-2 ESV)
Jesus doesn’t force anyone to believe in Him. He does not resort to violence, terrorism or intimidation to present His claims. Everyone is allowed to choose.
“God loved the people of this world so much that He gave His only Son to die for the sins, and sinful nature, of each and every person. That way, WHOEVER believes in Him (commits their life to Him by receiving Him as Lord and Savior) shall not die (remain spiritually dead) but HAVE eternal life”, John 3:16.
Believe and have life. Don’t believe, and you and I remain the same, with an eternal consequence to face when we die physically.
And yet, the spirit of the age (the devil) has this world so confused into believing Jesus is the bad guy and Muhammed is the good guy!
But look at the fruit of Muhammed. Remember, the fruit reveals the root.
It’s time for people to realize that Muhammed is long gone. The spirit motivating his followers is the spirit of darkness; the spirit of satan, the one who WANTED to be God. The one who COULD NEVER be God; so he attacks God’s creation through false prophets such as Muhammed.
Muhammed isn’t anyone’s savior, he’s not coming back on a white horse or a slow train. His place, unless he received Jesus as his Lord and Savior, is in the place of the damned; eternally separated from the Presence of the Living God.
And no, he’s not being entertained by seventy gorgeous virgins, either.
Or even one.
Don’t buy the lies, or become entangled in the confusion regarding the real Muhammed or the true Savior, Jesus Christ.
Look at the fruit.
