Can Allah and Jehovah Be the Same Entity?
Do the Bible and the Koran Agree About God?
The Bible says, “Many things in heaven and on earth are called gods and lords, but none of them really are gods or lords. We have only one God, and he is the Father. He created everything, and we live for him.
Jesus Christ is our only Lord. Everything was made by him, and by him life was given to us. Not everyone knows these things.
In fact, many people have grown up with the belief that idols have life in them…” (1 Corinthians 8:5-7) (Contemporary English Version)
The truth is… there is only one true, living God.
“Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord.” (Mark 12:29)
He has several names and titles; for the purpose of this discussion I will call Him by the name, Jehovah.
Muslims do not worship Jehovah, they worship Allah.
Jehovah and Allah are NOT the same entities – They cannot be!
Muslims claim that Allah authored the Koran through his prophet, Mohammed.
Christians claim that Jehovah authored the Bible through 40 different people including several prophets.
The Koran can be considered the word of Allah and the Bible can be considered the word of Jehovah.
If Allah and Jehovah were the same persons their messages to the human race through these two books would have to agree.
Even if we use the argument that they modified that message to suit different people of different cultures and times, the fact is, if they both really were one and the same God these two books should contain the same basic truths and their messages to humanity for salvation would have to agree. At the very least they should agree on major points of doctrine.
But they don’t.
Here are just a few inconsistencies:
Jehovah says in the Bible, “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed…” (John 8:31)
“And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.” (Acts 11:26)
The Bible says concerning Christians, “Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ for the spiritual blessings that Christ has brought us from heaven!” (Ephesians 1:3)
It says about Jews, “People of Judah and Israel… I will save you and make you a blessing… (Zechariah 1:13)
So, Jehovah says both Jews and Christians are under His blessings.
Allah says in the Koran, “The Christians, Jews and idol worshipers, who do not believe in Mohammed or the Qur’an, are going to burn forever in hell and are the worst of men (Chapter 98 Verse 6).
Clearly, Jehovah and Allah are NOT the same entities!
Allah says, “Is it any wonder then that the Koran commands all Muslims, “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people,” (5:51)
The Koran says, Allah does not guide Jews and Christians.
Jehovah says (To the Jews), “And the LORD shall guide thee continually…” (Isaiah 58:11)
Jehovah says (To the Christians), “When he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth…” (John 16:13)
Clearly, Jehovah and Allah are NOT the same spirits!
Allah says in his word, “Those who believe that Allah has a son must be admonished since this is a monstrous blasphemy and falsehood (18:4-6).
Allah has never begotten a son and there are no deities beside him (23:91).
Jehovah says in His Word, “When we told you about the power and the return of our Lord Jesus Christ, we were not telling clever stories that someone had made up.
But with our own eyes we saw his true greatness. God, our great and wonderful Father, truly honored him by saying, “This is my own dear Son, and I am pleased with him.”
We were there with Jesus on the holy mountain and heard this voice speak from heaven.” (2 Peter 1:16-18)
Clearly, Jehovah and Allah are NOT the same spirits!
Allah says, “People of the Bible should not exaggerate. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, his word he cast to Mary and a spirit from him.
So believe in Allah and his messengers and stop saying “three”. Allah is only one. He is too transcendent and majestic to have a son.” (4:171)
Jehovah says, “But God says about his Son, “You are God, and you will rule as King forever! Your royal power brings about justice.” (Hebrews 1:8)
“For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.” (1 John 5:7)
Clearly, Jehovah and Allah CANNOT be the same gods!
I don’t think I need to further illustrate this point.
The obvious truth is that the Koran and the Bible clearly contradict each other on the major points of doctrine, therefore, cannot be inspired or authored by the same person.
The spirit entity that Muslims worship is NOT the God of the Bible and any spirit that is not God who receives worship as God is a spirit of Anti-Christ.
It is either Satan himself or one of his Demons. Read more about this in my Book, “Understanding the War on Terror: A Legacy of Two Brothers.”
Holy angels of God do not receive worship from men.
The Bible says, “I knelt at the feet of the angel and began to worship him.
But the angel said, “Don’t do that! I am a servant, just like you and everyone else who tells about Jesus.
Don’t worship anyone but God.” (Revelation 19:10)
Here is a summary:
1) Jehovah and Allah are not the same God.
2) There is only one true God and Allah cannot be Him.
3) Any spirit posing as God and receiving worship from men is a false god.
4) Every false god is an idol backed up by a demonic spirit.
“Choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods whom your fathers that were on the other side of the river served, or the gods of the Amorite, in whose land ye dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve Jehovah.” Joshua 24:15 (Darby Translation).
