"A Humble Ambassador For God"
By Sir Lionel Luckhoo
"May these words be penetrated and bare fruit. This message was given to me by Almighty God. He said to me that it is for a time such as this that He had prepared me. I am duplicating many similar tapes, which will be sent throughout the world and there is only one caveat, those who receive the tapes must duplicate them and send them around to others so that they will be reaching far and wide throughout the world; multi, multi thousands. This is the most important thing I have ever done in my entire life. Lord Jesus and please Lord Jesus I ask that you anoint this tape richly in Jesus' Name. Amen."
God has pointed out to me that Moses was 80 years old when he was given the formidable task to take the children of Israel across the desert. Now, I am not the only one. God has told me that there are many others whom He has now prepared to launch this assault on Islam. Islam is satanic! Islam is blasphemous! Islam is anti-Christ! Islam is literally leading millions and millions into the lake of fire! These questions are responsible if we do not seek to save those of our brothers who are seduced or who are being dragged down by Satan.
God pointed out to me the Biblical verse, which states, "O wicked man, you will surely die if you perceive the wickedness of your brother and seek not to have him change his ways. Then his blood is on your hands. But, if you seek to do so and if you fail then you are exculpated. Then you are excused."
Today Islam seeks to take over the world! Islam, for example, has gone into England, and there they are seeking to make England the first European country to have accepted Muhammad and his doctrine of the gospel that he propounds. And, that gospel is no gospel at all. There are millions of Muslims in this country, the United States of America, who all have the same purpose, that everyone should follow the lead of Muhammad. So, it is very necessary if all Christians see to bring these erring brothers who are being misled, bring them the knowledge of Jesus.
You see before you were born and before I was born God knew us both. And in 1978, when I accepted Jesus and started to go around the world as a tiny ambassador for a mighty God, I thought I was fulfilling my whole mission. But, He laid it in my heart that I must study Islam and I have written two books, entitled "Islam is not the Word of God" and "Islam or Christianity? You Choose!" They are not really big books. They're small books. But the multi-thousands of copies that I sent to Johannesburg, South Africa, the Middle East, to Jerusalem, to all over the world, have been very fruitful. I don't sell them. God's work is not for sale. But they won many, many souls. And now I am told by God that I must do it on a large scale. Now, I must be more forthright. Now, I must be bolder. Now, I must point out that Islam is not only a false religion, it is the religion of the worship of idols. Something, perhaps, that many people don't know. But when a Christian becomes aware of it, he will pray, he will seek to win the souls of the lost Muslims. And that he will make copies of this tape and distribute them freely. I already pointed out what is being done in England. Churches are closing; mosques are coming up in their places.
When God gave me this message He pointed out four things to me:
First, is that the Christians will one day have to answer to Jesus for their failure to bring Jesus to the Muslims. I have already adverted to the passage of Scripture, EZ 33:8-9.
Secondly, the Christians who fail to equip themselves as ambassadors, who fail to equip themselves in the study of the Bible, are not carrying out the requirements of the Christian Faith.
Thirdly, that to repel Islam, the most dangerous anti-Christ movement that there is, we must study Islam. We must know and perceive the dangers and then loudly and boldly proclaim them as false.
Fourthly, God directed me that in dealing with the Muslims, after we have studied Islam, we should follow Paul's example when Jesus spoke to him on the road to Damascus. You will find that in Acts 26:18. "I am sending you to them," He said, "to open their eyes and then turn them from darkness to light, from the power of Satan unto God. You must open their eyes first then you must proceed to turn them, divert them, so that they will go from Hell to Heaven."
Let us then start to study the background of what these people believe in that we may know how to attack this satanic force, this Islamic force. Islam, as propounded by Muhammad, consists of five foundations or pillars, and they form the very basis of this religion. What are these five foundations?
Well, the first one is that they must recite the Quran. They must know the Quran. Secondly, a follower must pray five times a day facing Mecca. Thirdly, that you must help the poor by giving alms, which is a very laudable one. Fourthly, that they must be fasting for a period during the holy period of Ramadan. But the Fifth one, that to obtain salvation you must make at least one pilgrimage in a lifetime to Mecca. And there to go to the Ka'bah and kiss the stone that gives salvation. You must march seven times around the stone and kiss it in allegiance and submission. This is in Mecca. The Ka'bah. And there your sins will be washed away. Will be the word they use, dissolved, and salvation will be obtained. Incredible! You're worshipping a stone!
How did Islam come about? Well, we have to go back to Muhammad. Muhammad was a wagon driver and he married Khadija and she was a very wealthy woman who was fifteen years his senior. He was born in 570 A.D. That was after Jesus and he is the founder of Islam. He was a camel driver and he alleges that he had revelations. I have no doubt he might have had some revelations when he went to the Hiraa cave and there he said that he had these divine revelations. The revelations, I feel, were satanic revelations because they undermine the whole core of Christianity. Jesus says, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life and no one comes before the Father except through me."
All right, let us go on with Muhammad. What he said and heard he recorded in the Quran. The Quran is the collection of the various sayings or the writings of this man Muhammad. His theology proclaimed a day of judgment which said that the punishment for the unbeliever is contrasted with a sensual heaven of beautiful virgins where you will be able to satisfy your sexual appetites and where wine awaited the faithful to Muhammad. But you got to be able to work for your salvation. You can't get your salvation by belief as the Christians do, believing in Lord Jesus. Muhammad said you must go to Mecca at least once in your lifetime, walk seven times around a stone, worship the stone and then you get you're your salvation.
The Muslims are strictly regimented and disciplined. I have already told you about the five times a day they must take time off to pray and Muslims in their countries close all their business places in order to pray. I wish the Christians might adopt something of this nature. Islam is a term, which denotes or has the connotation of submission.
They trace their line through Abraham, the first son Ishmael, whose was born, you will remember, out of Hagar. Hagar was a slave woman and they say that Ishmael, out of who follows the line that would give you Muhammad, was the elder son and the elder son was the one who must necessarily get the inheritance. But God is sovereign. God's promise was made to Abraham and his line would be the lead line. God redirected and repeated this promise Himself several times. The covenant He made with Abraham He made with Jacob, He made with Isaac and so that we find the repetition being made. Not only that through Isaac and through Jacob that the line would come but God points out in Galatians 4:30, "Get rid of the slave woman and her son Ishmael. The slave woman's son will never share in the inheritance of the free woman's son that is Sarah's son.
The Muslim's sanctuary in Mecca is the Ka'abah where the famous black stone, as I pointed out, is found. I want to speak a little more about this black stone. This stone, some Muslims claim, fell from heaven. The stone has the power to absolve all sin into itself when it is kissed! The same stone was worshipped as a god of the rocks and is one of 360 gods. Let me repeat it, 360 gods! This black stone was one of them which Muhammad chose and which he called and referred to it as Allah. Allah is not anything more than a word, which means god. And he chose one, this black stone and said, "This is Allah."
Allah is not my god. Allah is not the Christian God. The Christian God is Yahweh, is Jehovah. You see Jehovah is a Triune God: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. So don't fall into the errors saying Jehovah means the same thing as Allah and Allah means the same thing as Jehovah. This is not so!
Well, the black stone must be worshipped as the manifestation of Allah. This is the thesis of the Muslim faith. The black stone is the heart of worship. Let's face it; it is demonic worship. The dimensions of the stone are 40 feet by 30 feet by 55 feet. It is a sort of enamel-like stone and I repeat again there were 360 gods but Muhammad chose this one stone and said well, this is Allah, and this is Allah who is the god of all gods.
It is difficult for us perhaps to comprehend what is being done but when they kiss the stone and when they worship the stone they are saying this, "The stone is the manifestation of Allah. It is the first holy place where they must go to and acknowledge this god of gods. But this god of gods is not a true and living god. This is a stone god. And although the Quran copies from the Bible, because Muhammad came after Jesus and the Bible was then already in existence, many things from the Bible are plagiarized or copied. Muhammad's revelation may have come from a general or an evil spirit. A spirit on Mount Hiraa, yet he was a successful merchant and had a very ambitious wife who set out to proclaim that her husband was the lord of lords and that he was more than that, he was the savior of the world. He called himself savior. He called himself the Paraclete of the Holy Spirit, which of course is utter nonsense.
Let me repeat what I have been saying so that it may become clear to you. The Muslims walk around the stone devoutly and they kiss it and only then will they receive salvation. This is the basis of their religion. The black stone is the heart of all Islam. The stone, which I have already given you the dimensions, 40 feet by 30 feet by 55 feet. But what has happened then to the other 359 gods? For the Arabs used to go to Arabia and they worshipped any one of these gods. What has happened to these other 359 gods?
What does the Bible say about this? In Leviticus 26:1 it is written, "Do not make idols or set up an image or a sacred stone or yourselves, and do not place a carved stone in your land to bow down before it." Leviticus 26:1, for it goes on to state, "For I am the Lord your God…. and I will have no other god. I am the only God."
Christians today, under the pretext, under the simulation of toleration, they adopt what can be termed as syncretism; they accept Allah and Jehovah as being the one and the same. They say, "O well, it just means their god and that is how we have our god." That's nothing further from the truth than this word compromise. This mental form of compromise is no good. You've got to face up to it. You are either going to worship stone, you are going to worship idols, or you are going to worship the Only True and Living God.
All of the sayings of Muhammad were collected together after his death and in A.D. 650. They were put together in a book known as the Quran. History reveals that Muhammad was determined to propagate his religion by force. He turned savagely at those who would not accept and he beheaded. Historically it is recorded that at one occasion 900 Jewish men, their wives, their children and those that were not beheaded were sold to slavery and their property confiscated. Muhammad hated the Jews as he hated the Christians and he stated in the Quran itself that you are not to befriend the Jew or the Christian.
One reason we know that the Holy Bible, the Christian Bible, is inspired is because it is a fulfillment of prophecies that happened centuries before the events took place. And even though the Bible is referred to in the Quran on several occasions, the Bible does not contain one word about the coming of Muhammad, about the Quran, about his life and about the way he suggests that he was the savior of mankind. Muhammad is a charlatan, spurious. You've got to call it as it is: a diabolical, blasphemous statement in which he asserts that he's the savior of mankind.
Let's go further. This very book, the Quran, referred to Jesus on many occasions. Indeed it referred to Jesus four times as many occasions as it does to Muhammad. We find that it refers to Jesus being born without a father because the Holy Spirit came. And yet, it turns around and says that Muhammad, who did have a father and mother, is a superior prophet to Jesus. The question is often asked: If Jesus is only a prophet why would he have to come? Does God not give the answer in Matt 1:21? He said, "You shall call his name Jesus because He will save people from their sins." Jesus came to save people from their sins. The worst news is that the payment for sin is death. The good news is that the gift of God is eternal life with Jesus Christ. God demands good works as a result of salvation, not to obtain it. Let me repeat that again, that my God, the Christian God, demands good works as a result of salvation but not to obtain it. To obtain it you merely have to believe that Jesus is the Son of God, God raised Him from the dead and that He is your personal Lord and Savior.
When we compare Christianity with Islam, when we compare my Lord Jesus with Muhammad. We see that there are stark differences, which I will advert to later. There are 99 names in the Quran for god. 99 names in the Quran for god but not one name is love! Isn't that strange when the Bible says that God is Love? Jesus taught us to live in peace and to survive by walking in love. Always love was stressed by God. This is stressed over and over and over again.
Let us go back again to Muhammad. Jesus, if you make a comparison with Jesus and Muhammad, was born of the Virgin Mary in 4 B.C. Muhammad was born of Aminah in 570 A.D. Jesus had no earthly father. Muhammad had an earthly father, Abed Allah. Jesus never married. Muhammad was married to 15 wives. Yes, Jesus never married and Muhammad was married to 15 wives. Jesus lived a sinless life and he never prayed for his sins because why? He had no sins! Muhammad, to the contrary was always sinful and in the Quran he prays again and again for the forgiveness of his sins. Jesus waged no war. Muhammad waged 66 battles. Jesus no war, Muhammad 66 battles. Jesus ordered no one to be put to death. Muhammad ordered many to be put to death. Jesus established mercy and love. Muhammad ordered death and the sword. Jesus established a Spiritual Kingdom. Muhammad established an earthly kingdom.
Jesus died by crucifixion at 33 years of age but He conquered death! Muhammad died of pneumonia and poisoning at age 52. Jesus rose from the grave. He is alive! He's living! This is a fact of history that Jesus came back alive to die no more. He was taken up and promises to return when He will take His saints with Him into Heaven. Muhammad is still in his grave. He is dead. Period dead. The Old Testament predicts the first and second coming of Jesus. There is no such prediction made concerning Muhammad. To the contrary, Muhammad is buried in Medina and it is the last we ever heard of Muhammad.
Jesus' plea was always love. Muhammad's theme was dedication to war. Jesus is mentioned 97 times in the Quran. Muhammad is mentioned in the Quran only 25 times. Can you make these comparisons and still cling to the belief of Islam? On what basis? On what ground?
Islam was founded by Muhammad, a man. Jesus was both man and God. He was before the foundations of the Earth were set. He was also God. Jesus was also God. So wonderful was His resurrection that our calendar was changed from B.C., before Christ, to A.D., Anno Domini, in the year of Our Lord. Because that we have marked the signification of the resurrection of Jesus whom Muhammad terms a mere prophet inferior to him.
The Quran is very vague about the Resurrection of Jesus. The Quran states with reference to Jesus' Resurrection, "Peace on me the day I was born and the day I shall be raised alive." This is clear that Christ became incarnate, died and was raised from the dead. This was according to prophecy and this agrees with the Gospel. Yet, Muhammad casts it aside and says, "This is a mere prophet." From time to time one could pose questions. If Muhammad were the Seal of the Prophet why is his coming not mentioned in the Bible or his own book the Quran? There are so many questions one could ask in which there is no satisfactory answer or explanation. But we go back and you can always remember that Muhammad's religion and his aim was world domination. And that is attractively portrayed, satanically portrayed so it lures people. Oh yes, the devil is strong. The devil is "captivating." The devil is "charismatic." He attracts and brings people. But the devil is not lasting. The devil rules for a while then his power will be taken from him. The last chapter of the Bible, Revelation, points out his final end. It is in the Lake of Fire and that is where all of his followers will go. Not into a paradise with maidens there to enjoy the sensual pleasures. The devil's end is foretold and he knows it. But the devil's mind is corrupted says the Bible. So he believes that he is stronger than Almighty God.
I recall speaking to the Iranian Ambassador. He was saying to me, "O but you are referring to three gods, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. One plus one plus one plus one equals three." My reply to him was, "No Excellency, it is not one plus one plus one plus one. It is one multiplied by one, multiplied by one, multiplied by one equals one! You see Excellency, I pointed out, our minds our finite but God is infinite and if our finite minds could comprehend an infinite God, the infinite God will no longer be infinite. He would become finite." One day maybe we will know more about this. Suffice to say that water can be seen in three different phases: as a solid, as a liquid and as steam, a gas.
Now let us look at some of the attributes of Jesus because you must also be able to make a comparison between Jesus, Jesus the God and Jesus the man who lived in this Earth but who was God. And you would be able to see that Jesus, in John 17:5 say," And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began." In other words, Jesus was eternal. He says, "Before Abraham was I am." So you have God being eternal, Jesus being eternal. God is worshipped so is Jesus. In Matthew's Gospel we are told the wise men of the east came to Bethlehem seeking him who was born King. King yes. Now, they don't call a young child, the son of a king, king. They would call him a prince but they said; "Now they came seeking the king." His equality of status with God the Father is exemplified. But we discover in Matthew 2:11: "They saw the young child with Mary, his mother, and when they saw him the devil people, those who did not accept Jesus, still fell down and worshipped him. May I encourage you to recognize that wise men still worship him? The demons recognized him and worshipped him. You get that in Mark 5:6 and 7. It tells part of a story about a demon-possessed person who, when he saw Jesus from afar, ran and worshipped him and cried out in a loud voice, "What have I to do with you Jesus, Son of the Most High God?" Even the devil recognized His Deity. As a lawyer, I know I would often site what favored my client as coming from those who were seeking to prosecute my client, their witnesses. And so from these people themselves who were opposing Jesus comes the admission that He was the Son of God.
According to Colossians, we have it that Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the first born over all creation, over all things that were created that are in Heaven, that are in Earth, visible and invisible. He is the head of the body in the Church. He is the beginning, the first born from the dead, that in all things we may have the preeminence that God has power over death. But so has Jesus. Did Jesus not say that "I am the Resurrection and the Life?" And He who had Resurrection power over His own life declared in John 2:19-21 that He would raise Himself from the dead. Only God forgives sin but so does Jesus. And the Bible clearly teaches, not only God can forgive sins but Jesus also. This is yet another proof of the equality of Jesus with God.
Well, we can go on and on setting out the factors, which propound the Deity of Jesus, but the one, which always appeals to me, is that He was the Great Creator. He, on one occasion, fed five thousand with a few loaves and a few fishes. On another occasion He fed four thousand with a few loaves and a few fishes. It clearly shows that Jesus was able to create. And they collected basketfuls of bread that had not been consumed.
Jesus is in reality God. The Son of Man had come to save that which was lost. The word lost is the same as the word sin and since God's word states, "All have sinned," all are lost, I could have said. It would be the same thing. All have sinned. All have become the object of God's concern. All means everyone. It includes the prophets. It includes everyone. That aspect of being saved is wholly dependent on Lord Jesus. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin. God demands good works as a result of salvation.
In Islam the works must precede salvation. You must obtain salvation through your works. Through going to Mecca. Through kissing the stone. Through worshipping the stone. A large number of passages of the Quran originally came, I feel, from the Old Testament, which was written before the Quran. And perhaps one may well suggest that efforts were made to plagiarize, to copy from the Old Testament. Perhaps I should refer to some of these aspects.
I am suggesting that there have been cases where plagiarism occurs: "the night of Power is better than a thousand months," Surat al Sadr 97:3. I am quoting from the Quran. Now compare that now with Psalm 84:10, which says: "For a day in your courts is better than a thousand." And then in Surat al Fathah 1:6, we find, "Show me your straight path." And that is the same as "Teach me your way, O Lord; lead me in a straight path," and that is found in Psalm 27:11. Then there is another illustration. I can go on giving many but let us just finish with a third one Psalm 37:29 of the Bible which stated "The righteous shall inherit the land and dwell in it forever" and compare this with Surat al Anbrya 21:105, "My righteous slaves shall inherit the land and dwell there forever." So that we find that there are many passages, which are referred to in the Quran, which are taken strictly from the Bible.
In the history of Muhammad one finds fickleness, which is unlike Jesus who is always the same. Let me dilate on this. Muhammad communicated to his early followers in Mecca that when saying their prayers they should face the Quiblah. Their physical direction was to be towards KA'BAH, that is, they must face Ka'bah when praying. First one. Then he, Muhammad changed it. He said that when he migrated to Medina, he changed the Quiblah to look towards, no longer the Ka'bah, but look towards Jerusalem. This was evidently to please the predominant Jewish population in Medina. And that is the second placed where he has changed. And then the third one is when he went 17 months later and changed his mind and said you must pray looking towards Mecca, a different direction. And we know that man makes mistakes and he needs to correct them but God never errs. And if Allah were Yahweh, Jehovah there would be no such fickleness. Muhammad blames Allah for the changes. His Allah is not Yahweh, who is the Triune God. He blames his Allah for the changes.
But there are so many other aspects and I shall like to deal with them as we proceed further in respect of the differences between Muhammad, our Lord Jesus. And, to point out the salient factors of Islam, which many Muslim followers would not care to advert to but which proclaim that this religion is anything but a religion of love.
Islam advocates polygamy: two or three or four wives and unlimited divorce. In Matthew 19:4 the Holy Bible states: "He made them in the beginning man and woman, male and female." If God wanted the man to have four wives as you can do under Islam He would have made more than one Eve for Adam. And according to Islam, a wife does not possess the corresponding rights of a husband. A wife is an inferior creature and the husband, in addition to having as many wives as he wants to have, he can have as many concubines as he wants to have. And if he can afford it, the Quran says he must go ahead and satisfy his lustful intent. But clearly, this is not what God intended, that man, in the manner which man should live, have an unlimited number of concubines. This practice abrogates God's command against fornication. In Surat al Nisa 4:24, questions this religion, which was founded in 600 A.D., that we should accept it, that this is so and that we are not to question it. I say we are to question it.
History is full of the religious oppression by Islam. One million Armenian Christians were savagely slaughtered by the Turkish Muslims. All of this was sanctioned by Islam. In Islamic countries Christian missionaries are forbidden to preach to Muslims or to have any Christian activity. In fact, a person has to be a Muslim to have citizenship in Saudi Arabia. Of course Muslims take quick advantage to come over to Christian countries, like the United States of America or England, set up their mosques, and are there are made most welcomed. Ask any Muslim, ask any one of them if a Christian would be allowed to set up a single church in his society? Of course not! They said, let those in the dark remain there. That is their attitude.
Then again, slavery is sanctioned in Islam, see Surat al Nisa 4:36. War is also sanctioned: 4:74. Allah promises a vast reward to the ones who, under the guise of dying in a holy war, should reap the benefits of a life of great luxury in the next world. He is the one who will enjoy that which the Quran speaks about but which no one has ever been able to give any positive proof exists. They all come from these imaginations, from the thinkings of Muhammad.
The anti-Christ is not merely a man who appears shortly before the coming of Jesus. It's a Movement that denies that Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God. And that is what the Quran does; it says, oh no. God would have to be married for him to have a son. Can you imagine anything more blasphemous then that? They limit God. They limit Jesus and they seek to set up, on this basis, their own rulings. If only the Christians would recognize that it is necessary to reach out and to lead the Muslims to the only true way, to the bread of life. It would then give them an opportunity for them to disclaim this Muhammad who is dead, period, dead and give them an opportunity that they would not be with him in the Lake of Fire, for that is his destination. He so diabolically refuses to accept Jesus as the Son of God.
Now, what I would like to speak a little about is that Islam is based on idol worship. I have done that already. I told you about the Ka'bah. But I want to go a step further. I want to tell you that in the very old days prior to the advent of Jesus coming on earth that people sacrificed children to the stone gods. I don't say that those stone gods were Allah but they sacrificed children to the stone gods and that is why in the Bible we find that the worship of idols and the references made to stone are so very pointed because God wishes to have no one come and proclaim himself: He who cannot move, he who cannot speak, he who cannot think, he who is an inanimate being should be foisted unto mankind as a god. And, I think that when you have that fact clearly identified you would see why it is necessary for you to become bold and to openly declare the necessity to accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior.
Many people have said to me, oh you have to be careful that you don't incur the wrath of the Muslims. I want to speak about that because God has brought it particularly to my attention. You see our time that we live here on this earth is limited. We live 70 or 80 years and then we die and then to judgment. That is what my Bible tells me. But if we accept Jesus we don't live any more for time we live for eternity. And eternity is living forever, and ever and ever. And it means that we are not to place false values upon this existence here. I mention that because the idea of giving of yourself to the work of Jesus is a whole time preoccupation. It means that you must be willing to take up your cross and follow Him. When I first decided on this date God almost literally spoke to me and said," Are you willing to pay the price?" And I said, "Yes, Father I am."
You see, in Revelation is stated that they overcame Satan by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony. And I often adverted to this aspect when giving my personal testimony. The testimony is so important. But now God said to me, "Read on further." And when I read on further it says they were willing to give up their very lives. And that is what I am prepared to do. I am not afraid. And so I council you, my brothers and sisters, who are listening to this tape, not to be afraid to give of your very lives if it becomes necessary, because our period in the Earth is period, limited by time. But what we should be concerned about is to do as our brothers who gave of their lives for the furtherance of the Gospel of Lord Jesus, the martyrs whose blood cry out proclaiming Him that you must have the strength and the courage so to declare.
Now, Muslims are inclined to be adamant about their desire to negate all of the various religions of the world. And, they would go into a strange land, set up their mosques, and there, because of their rigid discipline, they would evoke a certain amount of praise from the people who live there who wonder how they could be so deeply dedicated to do as they are doing. But, this is all satanically based. It is all a mirage, which is aimed at the giving of the semblance of being good, holy people.
But when you look at it that they are in favor of slavery, that they are not willing to permit another to declare his religion or belief. When you come to the point that there is no freedom to do that, then it means that you are getting to the point of a restraint and an acceptance of something, which enslaves you to Islam. Indeed, the whole of Islam means that you must be submitted, you must give submission, you must not inquiry into it, you must accept.
How do you become changed, dear brothers and sisters of the Muslim world? You become changed when you accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. There is only one God, Lord Jesus. There is only one Holy Spirit. This God, as I said, is a Triune God. And Jesus promised that He would return. His return is imminent. Either Jesus will return, as I feel He is going to be, returning soon or you will die. If you die without knowing Jesus that means you were not saved. If you are not saved it means that your name is not in the Lamb's Book of Life. It means that you are lost. If you know Him but you don't have a personal knowledge, if you know about Him but you don't have a personal knowledge of Him as your personal Lord and Savior, then you are still falling short.
When you ask Him into your life, your life becomes changed. I proudly proclaim that the happiest moment in my life was when I gave up whatever little I possessed: honored four times by Her Majesty the Queen of England with two Degrees of Knighthood, with being Commander of the British Empire and being one of Her Majesty's Counselors, being in the Guinness Book of World Records, being Lord Mayor of my city where I was born. When I gave up all of that and went around the world proclaiming Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior, not taking any of the monies which I had acquired, not taking any of the riches which I possessed, not because I didn't want to do it, but because I couldn't do it, living in a Third World Country. Now today, let me say that I am the happiest man in the world because I said a simple prayer, a simple prayer in a hotel, not in a church. What was that prayer? It's a prayer, which I invite you to say, a prayer, which you can say. A prayer, which can transform your life. A prayer, which could make all the difference to your entire present and your future. Let me give you the prayer, which I said. The words are not important. You can use your own words. This is the prayer I said in the hotel. You may say it after me now and invite Lord Jesus to come into your life, to come into your heart, as your personal Lord and Savior:
Dear Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. I believe God raised you from the dead. I now ask you Lord Jesus please come into my heart. Please be my personal Lord and Savior. As I move from darkness to light, as I move from a lifeless state to a state of life in you, with you, I ask you Lord Jesus that you would be graciously pleased to move in the hearts of all those who listen to this tape that they may accept you as their personal Lord and Savior, that in your glorious kingdom they will one day be present there, that they will be because of their acceptance of Jesus. I ask this in the Name that is above all names, a Name that is above the name of Muhammad, a Name that any other name that you can think of, in the Name of Jesus, Amen.
If you said that, if you said that prayer, words to that effect, it means that now you are a person who has no longer, no longer are you being guided by the flesh but you are being guided by the Spirit of God. And God will give you the mind, the mind of Jesus, that you will be able to see more clearly, walk with greater rectitude and honor in this world. And I ask you, my Lord Jesus, that you will be their senior partner in whatever their undertaking they do and let them go and win souls. Let them no longer be subjected to the worship of idols or stone. Let them no longer worship a man who is dead and who is destined for the Lake of Fire, for that is of Satan. That is not of a Living God and from a Living God.
All of those: Joseph Smith, with his Mormons, Mary Baker Eddy, Scientologists, Buddha, all of them are dead. The only one, whom I can call as a witness before any court or any tribunal, that there is life after death, is my Lord Jesus. In a court of law the judge has to rule. Yet that person can be called as an expert witness. And when you call your expert witness if it were a motorcar case or a damage case, you are calling an expert witness. That witness would have to give his credentials and then the court rules, if he is to be admitted as an expert witness. Whom could I call as an expert witness that there is life after death? And that concerns you, my brother. It concerns you, my sister. It concerns all of you. The only one I could call is my Lord Jesus. He is the only one who historically lived, historically died, was crucified yet came back alive on the third day. He lived for 40 days thereafter to die no more. He was taken up to the heavens above and there He promised. Two men in white who stood by His side said, "The same Jesus will return as you see Him go." This Jesus is due to return at any moment.
I tell you this categorically that we are at the End of the Age. We will not see beyond 1999 (Ed. Note: Sir Lionel did not see 1999 as he went on to meet the Lord in 1997). Everything points to the fulfillment of Scripture. In Hosea 6:2 it says that after two days He will be revived, He will be again. There two days after, the two days. With the Lord a day is like a thousand years (Ed Note: 2 Pet 3:8). After two thousand years. From Adam's birth to Jesus was four thousand years. From Jesus' birth to now we are two thousand years. All of the prophets of old, Irenaeus, Barnabas; they have all said that this period of this age will not go beyond 1999. Martin Luther has proclaimed it loud and clear; he wishes he were living in the 20th Century.
Are you ready to meet your maker? Are you ready to go into the arms of the Master? His return is imminent. This may be your last opportunity. I pray God it isn't, that you will have for accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. That is why I am making this appeal to you. Or, are you going to continue, my Muslim friends, with Muhammad and Islam? Islam that denigrates the rule of a woman and said that a woman must be kept in a state of abject and conservatism; must not be allowed the full expression of will. A woman who can never divorce her husband but her husband can divorce her merely saying, "I divorce you" a few times. What kind of religion is that, a religion that seeks to differentiate between a male and a female in respect to her rights and freedoms? I feel that the time is coming when you are going to be given yet another and maybe a final opportunity to accept Jesus. Don't turn your back on Him or forever you will be lost, yes. You can't say that this is (Ed note: ref. to Allah) a god of love that I am proclaiming.
Surely His love will not permit you to go into the Lake of Fire. He said that you have freedom of choice and He will move on the hearts of men so that no man will be able to say: "I did not know. It wasn't brought to my attention." So it will be brought to your attention. God will move in your heart that Islam is satanic, that Muhammad is a fraud. They have got to accept Jesus as the only way to the Godhead. For did Jesus not say that "I am the way" not a way, not one of the ways? Communism was a way, a way that led to what, degradation? "I am the truth." Not half a truth, which Tennyson said is the biggest lie of them all. "And I am the life." The only one who could give life is not Muhammad. He is dead, period, dead. The only one who could give life is He who has life.
On the term of biogenesis, only a living thing can give you life. A dead thing cannot give you life. And the only living entity that we have is Jesus. 1 John 2:22-23 tells us that no one can claim to have God except he accepts the Son. So all of you who say Jesus is not the Son of God, you have forfeited the right to call upon Him. Recant and turn back now the pages. It is necessary that you accept Jesus now. At this moment you can accept Jesus by saying the simplest and simple prayer such as I said a few moments ago to you or say it in your own way: "Dear Lord Jesus please come into my heart to be my personal Lord and Savior. I accept that you are the Son of God." When you do that it's going to make all of the difference in your life and it will give you the opportunity to be able to come and live the rest of your life with the peace and the joy and the complete delights of having someone who you could put your trust in.
Now, it is necessary for me in winding up to seek to capsulate some of the things, which I have been telling you. It's difficult to do that in a brief two or three minutes in a tape, which has taken an hour and a half but lets see how we can do it. I am not speaking from notes and I am just praying God's Holy Spirit to give me guidance.
The first point is: you realize that all men must die and that after their death then there is the judgment. Where you are going to go depends not on the work you have done but on the acceptance of Jesus and then thereafter follows the works you are required to do, which will give you your rewards that Jesus has promised; the many, many rewards.
Second point: to accept a man who lived, who was full of sin, who had to be praying for his sin, who waged 66 battles and was always living a life of lust; 15 wives. A man who said you could have as many concubines you wanted. Are you going to follow that man? That man is Muhammad. Muhammad will lead you to degradation and death. He is not the savior of mankind. He is not the Paraclete. To call himself the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit is God, is a travesty; is a blasphemy.
I want to tell you about the Holy Spirit in my closing remarks now. I went to one of the Muslim ambassadors. I spoke at the United Nations and I spoke to 90 ambassadors. They gave a luncheon for me. One of them was a Christian. And then I went to the embassies of the Muslim groups and there I was told by the Muslim ambassador that you are telling me about three gods: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. And I said no Sir it is not. I am saying that there is only one God but we can't comprehend what it means to have the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit as a Triune God. And I said, who do you say Jesus is? And I was praying in the Holy Spirit because the Holy Spirit is more powerful than Satan, is more powerful than any other being. He is God! He is powerful and I was praying and I said: "Who do you say Jesus is?" And he opened his mouth and in the presence of the ambassador, his deputy and a man by the name of Dr. Gary Allen and myself. He opened his mouth and said: "I say Jesus is the Son of God." He had admitted and then he opened his mouth again as if to deny it, to say no, I made a mistake. And I kept praying and he could not deny it! His mouth remained open because the Holy Spirit is powerful. The Holy Spirit is God.
So reject, reject all that you have been following and follow the only True and Living God, you and your family. That one day you may obtain eternal life in Heaven and not eternal life in the Lake of Fire. You see, we have freedom of choice. God isn't going to twist you arm but He will present you with the opportunity of opportunities for the acceptance of the Master. And that is what He is doing now! He is giving you yet another opportunity. So as I take my leave, let me make a final prayer:
"O those who hear this, please Father I ask that this tape may be copied over and that it may be sent far and wide and that multi-thousands may hear and that multi-thousands may come to a knowledge of Jesus. Not to glorify man but to glorify You, who are in Heaven. And I thank you, My Father. Bless those who listen, in Jesus' Name, Amen."
