The Injil (Good News) Of Jesus The Messiah

The Injil (Good News) of Jesus the Messiah (Isa al-Masih) according to John, forms a part of the New Testament, also called The Holy Injil (The Holy Evangel). This book is attributed to John, one of Jesus' twelve disciples, and therefore an eyewitness to the important events in the life of Jesus the Messiah.

This Injil account speaks of Jesus as the eternal Word of God, who became a human being and lived on earth. John's purpose in writing this account was that people might recognize Jesus as God's promised Messiah.

Then he said to Thomas, 'Put your finger here, and look at my hands; then reach out your hand and put it in my side. stop your doubting, and believe!' Thomas answered him, 'My Lord and my God!'

A Prayer for Muslims

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, our thanks and praise to You that You desire all people to be saved and come to a knowledge of Your Truth. Humbly we bring before You the multitude of Muslims throughout the world who have not yet attained to the knowledge of Your salvation in Jesus Christ.

O God, our hope and our trust is in You alone. We ask You in Your mercy to send more labourers among Muslims. Grant us Your Holy Spirit in this day of opportunity that we, too, may seriously ponder your claim upon us to be witnesses of Your Gospel among them, whether in this land or abroad.

We thank You for those already in service among Muslims. Endow them with love, understanding and patience so that they continue to recognize the privilege of their calling and to faithfully persevere in their various ministries.

Where Your Word is faithfully proclaimed among Muslims, O God, open their hearts that they would perceive Your true greatness in Your holiness and love which You have manifested in Your Messiah. As they pray for guidance upon the straight path, reveal unto them Jesus as the Way, the Truth and the Life for them also. When in their distress they seek for refuge from Satan, let them find their rest and solace in Jesus. By His cross and resurrection move them to measure fully the dimensions of Your mercy and compassion in the forgiveness of their sin and their new life. Through Your Holy Spirit enable them, who now look upon themselves as Your servants, also to know You as their dear Heavenly Father and themselves as Your dear children.

Strengthen the faith of new converts. Give courage to those who vacillate. Comfort those who are persecuted. Open the closed doors of those Muslim nations where the message of Your Gospel at present cannot be freely proclaimed.

Heavenly Father, may many Muslims, knowing You as the one true God and Jesus Christ whom You have sent, come from the East and the West to sit at table with Abraham in Your Kingdom. In the blessed Name of Jesus, Amen.

 

 



God is... dialogues on the nature of God

Three Middle Eastern village characters sit on a bench outside the wise man's house and discuss theology. Elder Yusef is the wise man. His friend, Abdu, asks the right questions. Abdu's sidekick, Baseat, is the "straight man" who never gets the point. After the manner of Job, these three characters, with the occasional help of some friends, discuss God...

The earlier edition of God is... has been praised for its clarity and winsome simplicity: presenting great truths about God in terms that anyone with basic English skills can wrestle with. Elder Yusef, like Jesus, uses universal parables that people everywhere can understand.

God is... appeared initially in Arabic; English, Urdu, Armenian and over twenty other language translations have followed. Scripts have been used in radio ministries and a feature length Arabic film was produced in Egypt in 1990.

FFM is excited to share in bringing this unique, completely-revised work back into print. Youth leaders, pastors, ESL class teachers-these and others will find God is... a refreshing and valuable resource.

Dr. Kenneth Bailey has spent forty years living and teaching in the Middle East. He has produced hundreds of articles and video resources, written several books, lectured in seminaries around the world, and been appointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury as Bible teacher at the 1995 triennial meeting of the Anglican Archbishops. Now in retirement in Pennsylvania with his wife Ethel, he continues his ministry of lecturing, writing and recording in the field of the New Testament.

A Journey With Christ in Jails and Torture Chambers

64 p., ©2004, FFM

"Let your Christ come to save you!"

"I felt a zealous power for Islam and I said, 'If this is a real invitation from the true God, as you claim, let it be repeated today and this time I will accept His call and become a Christian like you. But, if this voice does not come again, you have to forsake your beliefs and become Muslims like me!'"

Mohammed Ahmed (pseudonym) is a Sudanese convert from Islam who has an ardent desire to see his people come to know and acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord. He knows the high price which is often involved, having survived repeated attempts to torture him into submission. His testimony encourages us all and joyfully exalts the Lord.

In Quest of Truth

50 p., ©2004, FFM

"The stories of the lost coin, the lost sheep and the lost son in the Bible, spoken by Jesus almost two thousand years ago?became my own story, my autobiography, a transcript of my relation with God."

While a young medical student in India, Dr. I.O. Deshmukh began to struggle seriously with the irreconcilable claims of Biblical Christianity and his family's Islam. This brief (50 p.) booklet follows his reasoning - the process by which the Lord drew him ultimately to the Christ of the Bible - often using the Qur'an as a springboard. Dr. Deshmukh's clear and moving testimony has been in print for many years, has been translated into a number of languages and is available on the internet in an earlier edition (http://www.answering-islam.org/Testimonies/Deshmukh/) . This is the first North American edition.
