Chapter: A Call to A Journey-Islam (Pages 93-95)
To know that Islam has the right to seek out Christ allows us to discover salvation. The truth behind a call to prayer is that God our Father seeks to inform all peoples of all tribes to know that Jesus does exist. A call to prayer is to allow for peace and tranquility. A call to prayer it to call upon the Holy Spirit to transform us into new beings here on earth. A call to prayer is to demand guidance and direction from God. A call to prayer is to gain to truth.
To all of Islam, a call to prayer is not something that one is forced to do, but something intimate between you and your heavenly Father. To call upon the Father by seeking to know Jesus Christ opens the door for you. You must know that Jesus Christ is subject to God the Father. You must know that this is a loving relationship in perfect submission and respect that carries on throughout all Eternity.
1 Timothy 2:1-5 “First of all, then I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus…”
Now let Islam know that this is the secret and hidden truth that is awaiting if they choose to accept the invitation. Allow no longer for deception to control you but seek out Jesus in order that you may be able to enjoy this life of peace.
Romans 15:4 “For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”
Now pay attention to this scripture and know that you have everything to gain through Christ. Christ has come in order that you may have life and safety. It is our job to teach one another how to experience Jesus Christ, and to begin to understand the power of His presence. By believing you already have been saved, but by feeling and experiencing it for yourself you can share the truth with others who may not believe. By gathering people together to feel and experience it for themselves we create a unified body of Christ.
Remember that you have been called by God to seek out Jesus. Jesus keeps you safe and by reading God’s Word we know that each person may gain the insight necessary to knowing the way to a new life.
It is your job to test all teachers of their truth by keeping your eyes and ears open to God’s Son. We must pay attention to the details. For in many cases of which I have seen, the devil is in the details. In this case, a truth is being offered to you, which is without error and seeking to grow and learn on a highly intellectual level beyond human understanding.
You are not to be afraid, for if Christ is with you, who can be against you? No one.
The Sword of the Spirit is your reassurance…For Christ carries it within His Heart…
Romans 13:3-4 “For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same; for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath upon the one who practices evil.”
This verse speaks of the one who sits upon the throne, which is hidden for not all to see. The kingdom of God is like unto a buried treasure. He who sits upon the throne is without deceit and teaches by means of what God has prophesied from long ago.
Will you take that journey? Would you give Christ that opportunity?
To recognize the truth is to gain life. Do not allow for anyone to tell you what to do, but trust in the Word of God, and His Son Jesus.
The worst evil in the world knows better than to attempt to harm Christ. Do not be afraid.

Chapter: The Secret Garden (Pages 101-102)
Genesis 2:3-4 “Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made. This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made earth and heaven.”
To Islam, this is the key to gaining access to new understanding. Jesus represents light. The Sun is the source of all of our light in the universe, as it represents the brilliance behind God’s creation. Just as Islam prays to the East in the morning so does Christianity worship on the seventh day of the week, Sunday. We are able to find common ground from this simple truth.
Key Note: Genesis 2:8 “And the Lord God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground the Lord God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”
To understand the Holy Trinity is difficult for most, but in the hidden kingdom it is very apparent. In the Hidden Kingdom and Garden, God and His Son reside. The Spirit is the bond between Father and Son, united as one.
Revelation 22:1-2 “And he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. And on either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.”
If you remember the water that poured out of Jesus’ side at the crucifixion, you will also recognize how God might design a Fountain of Youth and a Tree of Life…For out of the Son comes the Water of Life…
These two points allow for one to discover the treasure of heaven, regardless of your former religious beliefs. God desires for us to be curious and to inquire about His existence. God desires for us to look for Jesus. God desires that we may all be filled with the same spirit as one unified family.
In regards to family, each person is adopted into a new family when they are saved. Each person is brought into a new understanding that allows for a new life. This new life is beyond real and anything that I have yet to experience as it is full of hope and joy.
This is a call to Islam to know that Jesus presents Himself to those who look for Him. Read His Words and trust His ways. Do not be misled by false teaching, which is simply a means to rebel against God and His Son, and to justify a means of a way of living… Remember that all peoples of all races are what make the world special. Islam is not created by God. This is in no way meant to condemn those who may have believed otherwise, but it is to bring new understanding of what has unfolded over time.
Be the “One” in your family to be the example of truth. Be the one in your family to do what is right and just in the sight of God.
Remember that Jesus saves, and his adversary wants to control you. This is the shocking difference between Jesus and Satan.
Now, let us all be brought into the same place where we may walk and share together as one.
A true Savior gathers people together in order to unite. What would Jesus do?
If we live our daily lives asking this question then we are able to find closure and answers.
God provides access to the Secret Garden to those who desire to come together as one unified body of Christ…It will only become more powerful and grow if you believe that His Son has come in the flesh…
Revelation 19:12 “…and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself…”
