Nowhere in the bible is there a mention of Islam .
The bible clearly mentions the emergence of Islam through prophecy... Isaiah 42.
Of course, your pastors and preachers have hidden this from you... or you willingly refuse to see it.
Amazing how Christians derive things from vague prophecies which can mean anything.
Yet, when it comes to Isaiah 42, which explicitly mentions names, places, events and historical facts... you refuse to accept it because it points
A classic case of seeing what you want to see.
Behold my servant...
He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth.....
- Islams success as a religion.
Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them
shout from the top of the mountains.
- Refers to the wilderness which Ishmael was sent into = deserts = Arabia.
Kedar = the son of Ishmael. This directly refers to the Ishmaelites and points to a new prophet outside of Israel. Deny this all you want, the truth
a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles....
-Islam is the covenant for the Gentiles.
Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.
-The end of Arabias history of paganism and idolatry. God Himself is making the prophecy.
he shall prevail against his enemies.
I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at
- Explains perfectly the wars and battles surrounding the rise of Islam. Islam prevailed... and continues to do so to this day... calling what was
"sin" 1500 years ago as "sin" to this day. While christianity has allowed its societies to be polluted with secular values that exalts mockers of
God, Islam has not.. to this day
And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them,
and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
-This verse from the Koran should suffice-
This is a Book which We have revealed to you, O Muhammad, that you might bring mankind out of darknesses into the light by permission of their Lord
- to the path of the Exalted in Might, the Praiseworthy.
They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our
- Points to Mohammads victory over Arabias idolaters.... and his destruction of the pagan idols and statues.
No biblical prophet that we know of was ever active in Kedar ever shamed the idolaters of Arabia.
And the last nail....
Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the Lord, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither
were they obedient unto his law.
Islam was raised among the Ishmaelites because their brothers, the Israelites failed to obey God.
All of this leads back to the promise made to Ishmael in Genesis.
That he too would be a great nation.
