Strange Case When Becoming a Prophet
In the Old Testament, Samuel I 10:5, we read the following:
"After that you will go to Gibeah of God, where there is a Philistine outpost. As you approach the town, you will meet a procession of prophets coming down from the high place with lyres, tambourines, flutes and harps being played before them, and they will be prophesying. The Spirit of the LORD will come upon you in power, and you will prophesy with them; and you will be changed into a different person.”
What is really strange, and I must question it, is the relationship between the musical instruments and prophesy? Prophecy is about taking God's message to the people. Musical instruments are the devil's work!
If you find this surprising, then look now at Samuel I 19:19, where we read the following:
"Word came to Saul: "David is in Naioth at Ramah;" so he sent men to capture him. But when they saw a group of prophets prophesying with Samuel standing there as their leader, the Spirit of God came upon Saul's men and they also prophesied. Saul was told about it, and he sent more men, and they prophesied too. Saul sent men a third time, and they also prophesied. Finally, he himself left for Ramah and went to the great cistern at Sechu. And he asked, "Where are Samuel and David?" "Over at Naioth at Ramah. But the Spirit of God came even upon him, and he
walked along prophesying until he came to Naioth. He stripped off his robes and also prophesied in Samuel's presence. He lay that way all that day and night. This is why people say, "Is Saul also among the prophets?"
Now, if you can, please tell me the meaning of this prophecy? Why all the playing and fooling around? What is this joke? Even the lowest of men would not think about doing this. So how could the New Testament allow such a thing to be related about God's messengers; the highest and wisest of all humankind?
After all, is it possible that Christians still do not doubt its authenticity as Gospel?
Things We Should Warn Ourselves and the People of
1. We ask the Jews and Christians to look deeply with their wisdom and clear vision at what we have said about the Old and New Testaments. We have shown clearly the contradictions as well as how God's dignity and Holiness have been attacked.
2. The accusations and allegations aimed at the Prophets and God's messengers should convince the Jews and Christians that these words cannot be Gospel, could not have been sent by the Lord. Almighty God is complete; therefore, the Revelation should be one hundred percent PERFECT, without a SINGLE contradiction, or mistake, and should be void of evil in relation to the Prophets.
No wise man would doubt that they have deviated from the Truth. The hands of evil have changed the Holy Book, construed its words and falsified the Book. Wise people should think carefully and know that this is wrong.
Considerable doubt therefore emerges regarding the remainder of the Old Testament. Presumably, the remainder, likewise, is full of falsehoods!
People who believe that this Book is Holy, or from God, do so for one of two reasons; either ignorance or insanity.
Due to all of these obvious mistakes, Muslims rightly condemn the Jews and Christians as they associate themselves with these mistakes.
We have just finished a small portion of what exists in the Old Testament.
Now let us look at the New Testament to see why it is not fit to be called Gospel from God, and to let the Jews and Christians know that these lies cannot be taken as any reference. They are wrong, they are evil, and they deviate from the Truth.
