The following is an edited excerpt from this author’s first book of Truth.

God’s Pilgrimage to Mecca

(a very special letter from this author)

God’s pilgrimage to Mecca!  This has nothing to do with Jews or Christians.  Or does it?  The Bible says it does (in a very large way).  The Qur’an completely agrees!  The twenty-second book of the Qur’an teaches Muslims about God’s House with His children called the Muslims.  It is a house that Abraham built and that God told Abraham to build.  Forget the Muslim faith of today because this story goes way back before Muslims even existed.  This story goes back about five-hundred years before Moses was born.

Two-thousand years before any Muslim existed, God told Abraham to build a House of God in the wilderness.  This probably took place before the city of Mecca even existed.  (Jews and Christians, we are building up to your great Truth of God here:  because this entire letter is actually your story!)  In Abraham’s day, there were no Arabs, Hebrews, or Christians.  In fact, all of these people later sprung from Abraham’s seed.  (More on this below.)  According to the Torah (spoken by God), Abraham was born sixty-years before Noah died.  Abraham was chosen by God to become the father of nearly every nation upon this earth and this started with Ishmael, Abraham’s eldest son.  Ishmael was the progenitor of all Arabs.

God begins this twenty-second book of the Qur’an with His main Truth regarding all believers in this world:

The Qur’an 22:17  Behold, regarding those believers of this Qur’an, and those who are Jews, the Sabeans, the Christians, the Magians, and the idolaters:  God shall judge between them on the Day of Resurrection.

So God has a place, in His Kingdom, for all believers!  Muslims are just one people upon God’s earth and God states this all through His Qur’an.

Now, given this Truth of God (first!), God then teaches Muslims about the sacred place in Mecca which God had Abraham build (more than two-thousand years before any Muslim existed):

The Qur’an 22:26 Remember that We prepared the site of the House for Abraham saying: Assign nothing as partners to Me. Purify My House for those who make the pilgrimage, for those who bow, and for those who pray.

The Qur’an 22:27 Muhammad, proclaim this Pilgrimage to all of mankind!

Here we have the truth of God’s Sacred House to the Muslims.  God called this place His Sacred Mosque in 22:25, if you care to read this.  God made Abraham many promises in the Bible regarding Isaac, Jacob, and let us not forget, Ishmael.  Abraham fulfilled this promise regarding Ishmael (the Arabs) here in the Qur’an.  There is only one Sacred Mosque ever mentioned in the Qur’an and it is this very House that Abraham built.  And here, with this Sacred Mosque, we find God’s Truth of this world:  a Truth which even Muslims, today, fail to understand.

Before anyone (of any faith) speaks against God regarding this, remember that God placed His House in Israel for the Tribes of Israel also.  God commanded Solomon to build His Temple and gave Solomon’s father (King David) the exact dimensions and specifications, just as He gave to Abraham.  There is only one God and God built His House for Abraham and the Muslims; God also built His House for the Tribes of Israel (meaning Jews and Christians).

Before any Muslim speaks against God, consider God’s Truth found in the Qur’an 22:25 regarding God building the Sacred Mosque for Himself.  This truly is the only House of God found anywhere in the Qur’an and it is for Muslims (and the world, should they accept this House).  But Muslims have denied the Children of Israel their House of God as God commanded Israel to build for Him.  Rather, you Muslims put your own mosque there in celebration of Abraham and Muhammad.  God never, but ever, commanded this!  God had 114 books of the Qur’an in which He could have commanded the Prophet to build this mosque.  God had 175 years in which He could have commanded Abraham to build this mosque in Jerusalem.  Islam means total devotion to God:  it does not mean total devotion to Abraham or Muhammad.

This mosque (and Al Aqsa) are an abomination to God.  They were built by the Caliphs after Muhammad’s death.  Every word of the Qur’an ended with Muhammad!  God never commanded these sites be built:  only to deter from the Holiness of His Sacred Mosque.  (God only commanded one House for Muslims!)  These sites may have been well intended and certainly came from tender notions regarding Abraham and Muhammad, but God never made these sites Holy:  only Muslim vanities made them “holy to man.”  Remember, only God can make something Holy and only God can Bless:  mankind has no authority to designate anything of this world regarding Holy or Blessed.  These mosques in Jerusalem are an abomination to God and border on idolatry.  Any Muslim who worships in a mosque dedicated to Abraham or Muhammad has assigned partners to God. God warns Muslims against partners!  The Qur’an never instructed Muslims to build mosques in Jerusalem, Abraham never instructed anyone to build mosques toward himself, and Muhammad never instructed anyone to build mosques toward himself.  Rather, the politicians of your Muslim religion decided to do this, but only many years after the Revelation of God, to Muhammad was complete.

To all Muslims, know now, that if it was not revealed to Muhammad in the Qur’an, then it is an abomination to God.  God never, through any Book, commanded mankind to build monuments to other men!  This is the beginning of any abomination to God.

Give back, to the Tribes of Israel, their House of God.  God gave Solomon and David the exact dimensions and specifications of this House of God (for the Tribes).  God gave the exact location for this House also!  What God did for Abraham (regarding the Sacred Mosque), He did also for the Tribes of Israel.  Your Qur’an (the Truth of God) teaches you that their Book (and God’s Command) is His Word also.  Your Qur’an teaches you that the site of their Temple was Blessed by God.  No, you say to this?

The Qur’an 21:81  Unto Solomon, we quieted the strong winds.  The winds followed his command toward the land which We Blessed for him.  Only God has understanding of all things.

In the Bible, God stated that there would be no blood upon the hands of Solomon (the blood of war).  In fact, God told David that he would not be allowed to build God’s House for Israel because David had the blood of war upon his hands.  God blesses very little in this world!  The land that God blessed for Solomon (in the Qur’an 21:81) was that speck of land which would be God’s House in Israel; the Temple.  God gave Solomon specific instructions for this piece of land, and in doing so, blessed the speck of land.

2 Chronicles 7:12  And the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice.

2 Chronicles 7:16  For now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there forever:  and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.

No where else in the Bible, did God ever bless any speck of land for the Tribes.  Few people realize this, but Solomon was the last king to rule all of the Tribes of Israel (meaning Christians and Jews).  But there, today, on that Blessed piece of land, we find what God considers to be an abomination:  a monument to Abraham, a mere man, and a monument to one night of Muhammad’s life.  Remember again, only God can make something Holy and only God can Bless:  mankind has no authority to designate anything of this world regarding Holy or Blessed.  Any place of worship built in memory of a person, or their deeds, is the same as a partner of God.  Regarding God’s second Commandment to the Tribes; making any graven image (of anything), and then bowing down in the presence of these images, is the same as a partner of God.  There is no difference!  The Tribes are not perfect either.  Muslims understand Abraham as well as any other people on this earth.  Abraham was a quiet man, a humble man; affected by God’s Mercy.  Abraham would never, but ever, wish a monument built to Himself!  This would stand against everything Abraham was taught and against everything Abraham believed.

My dearest Muslim friends, give back, to the Tribes, their Blessed speck of land:  it was Blessed by God for them in their Book, the same Book Muhammad told you to seek and then believe.  Remember always that this speck of land is not a matter for the Muslim children of God.  It is God’s speck of land where He commanded the Tribes of Israel to build His House (for them).  He did this for THEIR worship and THEIR sacrifice.

Muslims, more than any other people of this world, have always known that Allah’s phrase “Children of the Book” equals the “Tribes of Israel” equals “Jews and Christians; scattered all over this world.”  If your Arab hatred for that little country currently called “Israel” prevents you from giving back this speck of land, then do this for the Tribes of Israel who have been scattered over five continents for almost three-thousand years:  and have had no House of God to call their own for two-thousand years.  My dearest Muslim friend, do this for Islam:  allow them to make THEIR PILGRIMAGE AND THEIR SACRIFICE to the one God who knows all and sees all.  Redeem yourselves with God:  and show your faith in God, to this world, by respecting the Truth of God and the Word of God found in His Qur’an!

The Qur’an 21:81  Unto Solomon, we quieted the strong winds.  The winds followed his command toward the land which We Blessed for himOnly God has understanding of all things.

(God truly has a purpose for the speck of land He blessed for the Tribes of Israel:  only God understands this purpose.  It is quite possible that on Judgment Day, all Muslims will return to the Sacred Mosque that God instructed Abraham to build.  It is quite possible that all of the Tribes, scattered across this earth will return to the Sacred House that God instructed the Tribes to build.  Only God has understanding of all things.)

Jews and Christians, here is your part of the story:

To all Jews and Christians, this author knows you:  indeed, this author is one of you.  Regarding the Muslim ritual of facing God’s House (in Mecca) during their prayer, you think they are fools.  In this, you are ignorant of their Word of God because this is their House of God.  This makes you the fool because you are ignorant of your own Word of God which teaches you to do the same!  No, you say to this?

Solomon was the last king to rule all of the Tribes of Israel.  Solomon was also a prophet, though few realize this (even though Gabriel teaches this in the Qur’an).  Solomon foretold of the Northern Ten Tribes being scattered all over this earth.  (These same Ten Tribes to become the Christians of this world.)  Solomon taught that these lost Tribes should, for eternity, face Jerusalem in their prayer and that the Lord would then hear them.  The following is from Solomon’s dedication speech for the just-finished House of God (Temple) in Jerusalem.

2 Chronicles 6:37  Yet if they bethink themselves in the land whither they are carried captive, and turn and pray unto thee in the land of their captivity, saying, We have sinned, we have done amiss, and have dealt wickedly;

2 Chronicles 6:38  If they return to thee with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their captivity, whither they have carried them captives, and pray toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, and toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house which I have built for thy name:

2 Chronicles 6:39  Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, their prayer and their supplications, and maintain their cause, and forgive thy people which have sinned against thee.

Jews, all over the world, are not excluded from any of this (Jews and Christians are one in the same, family-wise):

2 Chronicles 6:21  Hearken therefore unto the supplications of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, which they shall make toward this place:  hear thou from thy dwelling place, even from heaven; and when thou hearest, forgive.

Yet again, in Solomon’s dedication to the House of God:

2 Chronicles 6:26  When the heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; yet if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and confess their sin, when thou dost afflict them;

2 Chronicles 6:27  Then hear thou from heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, when thou hast taught them the good way, wherein they should walk; and send rain upon thy land, which thou hast given unto thy people for an inheritance.

In the Qur’an, Muslims are taught to allow any person, of any faith, their pilgrimage to the House of God in Mecca.  Solomon taught the same to all Tribes of Israel (Jews and Christians).  This is Solomon speaking:

2 Chronicles 6:32  Moreover concerning the stranger, which is not of thy people Israel, but is come from a far country for thy great name’s sake, and thy mighty hand, and thy stretched out arm; if they come and pray in this house;

What?  Could this be a pilgrimage?  Here, Solomon is ONLY talking about a pilgrimage!  In fact, Solomon, and God, is inviting people from all over the world, of any race or religion, of any color or stature-in-life, their right to come to God’s House, in peace:  to pray, worship, or in any other way, to somehow “find” God in this world.  Solomon’s words match,, exactly, God’s Word found in the Qur’an.  This is God speaking:

The Qur’an 22:25  Behold, regarding all who disbelieve and bar any from God’s Way and their peaceful rights toward the Holy Mosque which We made for all of mankind, residents and foreigners being equal:  any who try to violate this with evil, We shall give them the taste of a truly painful end.

(Returning to the Second Book of Chronicles)

2 Chronicles 6:32  Moreover concerning the stranger, which is not of thy people Israel, but is come from a far country for thy great name’s sake, and thy mighty hand, and thy stretched out arm; if they come and pray in this house;

2 Chronicles 6:33  then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for; that all people of the earth may know thy name, and fear thee, as doth thy people Israel, and may know that this house which I have built is called by thy name.

Some people today might say, “Well, this was just Solomon making a speech:  it doesn’t really count.”  Well, some people today are fools because Solomon did not write the Chronicles.  Read on!

2 Chronicles 7:1  Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the house.

2 Chronicles 7:2  And the priests could not enter into the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD’S house.

God accepted Solomon’s prayer and made it the Truth for eternity!  This House of God that will be built, again, in Jerusalem is not to be a Jewish or Christian place.  It is to be a House of God for all of mankind, exactly as the Holy Mosque in Mecca is for all of mankind.  It is only religions that seek to exclude others.  God only wants every person to turn their face toward their House of God!  Are you “too proud” to turn your face toward God’s designated Holy Place on this earth?  Do not answer this author (or yourself).  Rather, say it to God, loudly, so He can hear you.

Finally, to those last few remaining stubborn Christian hold-outs who refuse to believe they have any part with the Children of Israel, or the Children of the Book, here is the Truth of God from your own Bible:  namely, the Book of Revelation.

Revelation 7:2  And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God:  and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

Revelation 7:3  saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

Revelation 7:4  And I heard the number of them which were sealed:  and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Revelation 7:5  Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand.  Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand.  Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.

Revelation 7:6  Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand.  Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand.  Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.

Revelation 7:7  Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand.  Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand.  Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.

Revelation 7:8  Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand.  Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand.  Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

God’s 144,000 saved children:  and not one of them is named as a Christian.  Oh, an equal number of Ishmael’s descendants will be saved also; this is just not spoken of in your Book.

For any Christian who believes that they have no part with the Tribes of Israel, you just read, FROM GOD’S OWN WORD, that neither you, nor any other Christian like you, will be saved from God’s wrath which will be poured out upon this earth!  To these Christians, do go ahead and refuse to face God’s House which He built for the Tribes of Israel!  Do go ahead and refuse to bow yourself, in prayer, to the place God chose, and Blessed, for Himself!  (Chose and Blessed for Himself:  IN YOUR BIBLE!)

Do you require further proof?  Then learn the words of Christ, Himself:

Matthew 15:24  But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

And have you ever wondered where “all those Apostles” went, after Christ’s death?  They never again appear, in the Bible (or any history of mankind), after the Book of Acts.  Well, Christ told them where to go:  they went to visit YOUR forefathers!  No, you say?

Matthew 10:2  Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;

Matthew 10:3  Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;

Matthew 10:4  Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.

Matthew 10:5  These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

Matthew 10:6  But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

NOTE:  Of the twelve Apostles identified above, only three deaths have been documented by historians:  John, Peter, and Judas.  Judas killed himself after he betrayed Christ.

Oh, the Apostles might have disappeared from the pages of the Bible, but these Apostles knew where they were going.  Christ told them where to go!  Regardless of what you have believed for all of your life, you just read the actual Truth yourself:  from your own Bible.

So again, to those last few remaining stubborn Christian hold-outs (my dearest friends), if you were God, and were about to pour your wrath out upon this evil earth, would you save those who are too stubborn, vain, and arrogant to bow themselves to you, or to turn their faces toward your Holy Place and beg for your forgiveness?  Or would you save those children who knew and honored your place upon this earth and your place amongst mankind?  My dearest friend, all Truth from God is a two-edged sword:  you have just found the wrong side of God’s sword.

And you have found it with time still left on your clock (a precious gift from God).  Do not place your faith in the words of other people: namely some mysterious rapture which is never, BUT EVER, spoken of in the Bible or in any other place on this earth.  Put your faith in the words of God and all truths you find in your heart!

Now, Muslims!

The Qur’an teaches of Muhammad’s night journey:  “from the Sacred Mosque to the farthest place of worship” (meaning from Mecca to Jerusalem in a single night, with the angel Gabriel’s help).  Since the Qur’an was written, Muslims have believed that both places belong to them.  God said no such thing in the Qur’an!  Only a “little people” would believe that God belongs solely to them; only a “little people” would believe that both places belong solely to them:  leaving nothing for the rest of the world.  The fact-of-the-matter is that God did Bless two places in this world for mankind to worship.  (One for the line of Ishmael and one for the line of Isaac:  the two sons of Abraham.)  God assured, through His Scriptures, that both places were to be made available to the entire world:  for any person to come, peacefully, and worship God in that Blessed place.

More than this!

For Muslims to declare ANY place as “also holy” (with no such commandment coming from the LORD) is to rob the LORD of His full glory which He placed upon that ONE Holy House that He commanded Abraham and Ismael to build.  The LORD later revealed this story through Muhammad, the prophet!  The LORD commanded no other holy places to Muhammad!  For any Muslim, today, to associate a second holy, or third holy, or more holy places is forbidden by Allah:  because it was never commanded by Allah (our LORD)!  Only Allah (our LORD) can make a thing holy!

Muslims!  Give back, to the Tribes, their Blessed speck of land.  It was Blessed by God for them in their Book and it was Blessed by God for them in your Book.

And Muslims . . . you may want to read just a bit more and learn about one of Ishmael’s greatest descendants!

You have just read the story of Solomon’s Temple:  the first Temple.  It was destroyed long before Christ ever came to this world.

The story of the second Temple follows on the next web page, titled “Named by God.”  This second Temple in Jerusalem was built by God . . . and one Persian king.  That’s right!  It was one of the Twelve Princes of Ishmael who gave that speck of land back to the Jews so they might worship their LORD as the LORD so commanded to Solomon!

Oh, the Jews were there:  they placed one brick upon another!  But it was truly God, and one Persian king who built the second Temple in Jerusalem:  the very Temple where Jesus walked and taught!  This very special Persian king was named by God, in the Bible, about 150 years before he was born.  This shall all be proved by way of the Bible on the next web page!

You see, according to Daniel, the story of the third Temple WILL BE (quite likely) the story of the second Temple.
