Allah is Not Yahweh

Genesis 8
Genesis 15
Genesis 22
1 Chronicles 16
Exodus 20

Yahweh is the god who created the universe, and everything in it.
Yahweh is the god who revealed himself to Abraham.
Yahweh is the god who revealed himself to Abraham’s descendants, Isaac and Yaakov.
Yahweh is the god of the Jews.

Abraham had a son, (Ishmael), with a slave woman, (Hagar), and they were both banished.
Allah is the god of Ishmael.

Allah claims to be the god who created the universe, and everything in it.
Allah claims to be the god who revealed himself to Abraham.
And Allah is the god of the descendants of Ishmael. The exiled branch of the family of Abraham.

My name is Paul. In Greek I would be Παύλος (Paulus), in Japanese ポール (Poru).
They’re all the same, in Japan I’m called Poru, in Greece I’m called Paulus…
But Allah is not just the Arabic equivalent of the Hebrew name Yahweh.
Allah is not Yahweh. They are very different.

Allah is a spiritual force pretending to be Yahweh.
Allah did not create the universe and everything in it.

Noah built an altar to Yahweh
Yahweh said to Noah, “Blessed be Yahweh, the God of Shem.”

He (God) said to Abram, “I am Yahweh who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land to inherit it.”

Allah is very strict. Not known for being loving or forgiving.
Yahweh is also strict, but he is known for being loving and forgiving.
When Yahweh punishes his people it is to discipline them, to correct them.
When Allah punishes it is only judgement.

Before Ishmael and Isaac were born, God called himself Yahweh. He still does.
After Ishmael was exiled by Abraham, why would God suddenly start calling himself Allah?
Why would God start dealing with mankind in a different way after Ishmael was exiled?

Yahweh promised Abraham to give him and his descendants the land of Israel.
(Which is why I think Allah claims to be Yahweh… if he is, then Allah is claiming that Israel belongs to Ishmael, not to Isaac).
But after Ishmael was exiled we read how Yahweh tested Abraham to see if he would sacrifice his only son - Isaac.
He was willing to do that for Yahweh, but Yahweh sent a lamb in Isaac’s place.

Yahweh showed that he is still the god of Isaac.
He went to to show that he is the god of Yaakov.
Allah is some spiritual force… pretending to be Yahweh, but he is NOT Yahweh.
You do the math.

If Allah is Yahweh, then why is his way of dealing with his people so different before and after Ishmael was exiled?
And why is Yahweh’s way of dealing with the Jews so consistent before and after Ishmael was exiled?

And… if Allah is Yahweh, then Yeshua was either made up or lying, and Christians aren’t saved at all.
Muslims do not believe that Yeshua is the son of the one true god. We do. We cannot both be right.
Yeshua is the son of Yahweh, and Allah is not Yahweh.

Yahweh later appeared to Moshe. This is how we have the first 5 books of the Bible.
It is a pivotal story in the history of the Jews. It’s how they got their land back after years of exile in Egypt.
It was a step of the fulfilment of Yahweh’s promise to Abraham centuries before.

1 Chronicles 16 has this line:
For great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised. He also is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but Yahweh made the heavens.

Only Yahweh is really God. Only Yahweh is a real god at all.

And only Yahweh is in a position to promise a land to a people.
And he promised Israel to the Jews.

And because of that, they will have it.
Regardless of what any of the false gods of this world try to do to prevent that from happening.
Regardless who they can deceive.
The Jews will have Israel, all of Israel, as their land. As only their land.

If that upsets you, perhaps you better check who you’re following.

So, what do you do if you think Allah is not Yahweh. That Allah is not a real god?
You choose to be like Daniel and stand up for Yahweh regardless of any consequences that might happen to you.
