The kingdom was said to have been removed from Israel and was given to a nation bearing fruit.
Mt 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
Muslims readily claim that the kingdom was given to the arab nation—to islam?
They use this verse.
Gn 17:20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.
But note which jesus said would bring fruits, a nation, whereas the basis of muslims, the one giving fruits is Ishmael. Ishmael is not a nation.
As we can see, it is inconsistent.
Is the Christian group a nation?
1Pt 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
1Pt 2:7 Unto you therefore which believe [he is] precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
1Pt 2:9 But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Is the Christian nation bearing fruits?
Col 1:10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
Phl 1:10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;
Phl 1:11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
So the Christian nation bear fruits of good works and righteousness. Is the kingdom with them?
Hb 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
1Th 2:12 That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.
That clearly proves that the Christian nation is the recipient of the kingdom taken away from Israel.
Here is something to think about.
JESUS GROUP IN TERMS OF RELIGION IS DIFFERENT FROM THE GROUP OF ISRAEL WHICH IS JUDAISM. IF JESUS GROUP CAME NEXT AFTER JUDAISM, WOULD GOD OVERLOOK JESUS GROUP, AND GIVE THE KINGDOM RATHER TO ISLAM INSTEAD, WHY OVERSTEPPING JESUS GROUP?
IF SO THAT THE KINGDOM WAS TAKEN FROM ISRAEL AND GIVEN TO ISLAM, DOES THAT MEAN THE JESUS GROUP DON’T HAVE THE KINGDOM?
THEN WHY DO ISLAM CONSIDERS JESUS AND HIS DISCIPLES AS MUSLIMS IF THEY DON’T HAVE THE KINGDOM?
What do you think?
Are you not inconsistent, muslims?
