    I think that your guest has a logic error. God has given us Free Will. If God gives the throne to somebody and that king choses to do wrong, it is the most natural thing for God to say ‘I repent that I chose Saul’.

    On the other hand, all the muslim theology is based on God’s repentance. Meaning, they believe that God ‘repented’ that He chose Israel as His chosen people. In the ‘Kuran’ they admit that the first chosen people was Israel, but they failed to do God’s will.

    However, I love how muslims do not have a Trinity. They do belive that God is one (echad)…

    Thanks Nehemia for being patient with this man to show us something of the beliefs A sect of the muzzies. He was working hard to be gentle, but he was still self exaulting like a goat, he avoided all the good questions and defeated the purpose of your interview, I think. Extremely frustrating, Lording it over you.
    Have you come across E.M. Wherry? –
    “In ancient Arabia, the sun-god was viewed as a female goddess and the moon as the male god. As has been pointed out by many scholars as Alfred Guilluame, the Moon god was called by various names, one of which was Allah .

    Well, what can I say, but thank you!

    This conversion was most enjoyable! This has been a most excellent example of how peace can come about, despite differences of opinion. The gentleman certainly displayed a love for the creator, and this love for the creator should unite the human race and should not act as a divider… for the creator loves his creation and may I add his creatures …!

    Very interesting interview. This Muslim man was quite knowledgeable, wasn’t he? I particularly was impressed with his belief that Allah, is the same God as Yehovah, plus that he believes in Yeshua (Jesus.)

    Having watched many old TV westerns growing up, I remembered the Indian war chant while dancing around a fire in the movies. “Hi Yaw Haw Yaw, Hi Yaw Haw Yaw.” It seems logical to think that if they were about to go to war, the Indians would have been calling upon the God of the Indians, which some shows referred to as the Great White Spirit in the Sky? Hmm. Sound familiar? Ruach HaKodesh?

    Interesting point may be made. In Exodus 3:14, is not the Great I AM THAT I AM, from the Hebrew converted to Latin alphabet, “hâyâh ‘ăsher hâyâh? (At least according to Strong’s which is the limit of my Hebrew language education. Strong pronounced as haw yaw ash-er’ haw yaw. “… and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM (haw-yaw) hath sent me unto you. The Indian chant in movies was – Hi Yaw Haw Yaw. Same Great God?)

    Nehemia, is it “possible” that the American Indian was calling upon this name of the God of Israel as revealed in Ex 3:14?

    All of a sudden it seems “possible” that our Creator God revealed Himself to various people’s via various names? Either that, or maybe the American Indian has a familial linkage to the ancient Hebrews that has yet to be discovered. After all, the tanned skin tone of the Indian is not that much different than Mideastern cultures, plus the Indian was nomadic, living in tee pees – tents. Like ancient Israel.

    You being from Texas, where many Indian wars were fought, does this intrigue you enough to perform a little research into the concept?

    Then too, for all I know (which isn’t much,) the Indian chant “could” have been made up for the movies, by TV’s Jewish writers or producers. Would be nice to know the origins of this chant and the TRUTH.

    Better ask him the quran, not his opion.. Taqiya

  • E says:

    Isaiah 42 is talking about the coastlands. Kedar also means “dark-skinned,” which describes Filipinos, who sing praises to God:

    “Sing to Yehovah a new song; His praise from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, you coastlands and you inhabitants of them! Let the wilderness and its cities lift up their voice, the villages where Kedar dwells. Let the inhabitants of Sela sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains. Let them give esteem to Yehovah, and declare His praise in the coastlands” (Isa 42:10-12).

  • Neville Newman says:

    Oh, I *really* want to see a transcript of this one !

  • Gregg and Nanette Hutchison says:

    Thank you Nehemia for your constant words of wisdom. My husband and I look forward to spending a bit of our Sabbath with you (via your broadcasts). Happy Thanksgiving and please feel free to visit us in Ventura County anytime. We have room for you. ?❤️ Sincerely, Gregg and Nanette Hutchison.

  • Scott says:

    Nehemia, I love your channel, but please let the man finish his point, debate manners. As far as TORAH, the guy made point for you, that the word was given by world of mouth, which was done in TORAH before it was written, also that TORAH was copied continuously since Moses, so that the Dead Sea scrolls just confirms this

  • Reyes Nava says:

    Great discussion and perfect example of how misunderstandings can be brought to light by coming together and finding common ground.
