Muslim Concept of Sacrifice & Martyrdom
« on: December 21, 2010, 07:59:59 AM »
Muslims are confused regarding the blood of Jesus even when they understand that atonement for sin through blood sacrifice was the whole purpose of the alter in Solomon's temple that God had His people build.

Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh [is] in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it [is] the blood [that] maketh an atonement for the soul.

Some claim that animal sacrifice is OK (because they sacrifice animals in repackaged Meccan pagan ritual) but see the whole subject of the Gospel, which is Jesus sacrifice for us, as something different - even scary - as this young man admitted.
This through ignorance that the new covenant sacrifice of the Lamb of God was prophesied so many hundreds of years in advance.

And Jesus prophesied His own crucifixion

Mohammed's followers are crippled regarding this subject because they can't grasp the concept of martyrdom, since Mohammed taught that a follower of his that is accidentally killed while engaged in the slaughter of imperialistic conquest and murder of others, is a martyr.
But of course to non-Muslims, it would have been the person that sacrificed his life fighting to defend his family, property and country from the Islamic invaders, that were the actual martyrs. The exact opposite of what Muslims believe.

However the main reason followers of Mohammed reject Jesus' sacrifice for us, is simply because Mohammed rejected the blood of the Lamb of God, since he was inspired by a jealous fallen angel (and his first wife Kadijah's cousin Waraqa to parrot Simon the Magician's 1st century gnosticism) to proclaim the exact opposite of the whole subject of the Gospel.

As I was covering this subject it again occurred to me that an easy way to help those deceived by Mohammed begin to get an understanding of Jesus' sacrifice, is to ask what they think about a soldier who sees a grenade tossed in among his unit, and throws himself on top of it, in order to save the other soldiers in his unit.
As backwards as their understanding of martyrdom is, even Muslims should be able to see that as self-sacrifice to save others.

Well Jesus covered that grenade, to save every person, who has faith in the shed blood of the Lamb of God.
YHWH's new covenant final answer for atonement of sin.

And Jesus' followers have been martyred, solely on the basis of their faith in the shed blood of the Lamb of God, ever since.

So then should we be surprised that followers of Mohammed view Jesus' self-sacrifice and crucifixion as an indication of weakness, even as their own prophet who sent so many hundreds of thousands to their deaths in his name, died in a whimper in bed, finally succumbing to a poisoning of a few years earlier.

The irony is Muhammad wasn't even willing to die as his version of a martyr.
Doth that man love his Lord who would be willing to see Jesus wearing a crown of thorns, while for himself he craves a chaplet of laurel? Shall Jesus ascend to his throne by the cross, and do we expect to be carried there on the shoulders of applauding crowds? Charles H. Spurgeon
