New Statements by Mr. Adnan Oktar (5 October 2016)
GOD LOVES JESUS MESSIAH DEARLY. WHEN THE UNBELIEVERS APPROACHED PROPHET JESUS, GOD TOOK HIM AWAY TO HIS SIDE. WHICH WAS SOMETHING HE HAD NOT DONE FOR ANY PROPHETS BEFORE
For example, while unbelievers were chasing the Prophet Zachary (pbuh), he hid inside the trunk of a tree. He said "Nothing but God is permanent", and they cut the Prophet Zachary in half with a large saw. Almighty God could have taken him to heaven if He had wanted so; but He did not. He deemed martyrdom suitable for the Prophet Zachary (pbuh). For example, dear Prophet John (pbuh) was imprisoned. While drinking alcohol, in his completely drunken state, the man asked for the Prophet's head upon a woman's request. "What do you ask of me?" he asked the woman, and she responded, "I want John's head." He had priorly told the woman, "I will do whatever you wish." Ask something of me and I promise I will fulfill it." The woman said, "Since you promised, I want John's head." Then, he said, "Consider it done. Behead him and bring his head." His men went and martyred dear Prophet John; they beheaded him and brought his head. If Almighty God had wanted so, He would have razed the place upon their heads, He would have destroyed there by creating earthquakes; but He did not. The Prophet John was destined to be martyred. They took his head and brought it on a plate. As you know, the arm of the Prophet John (pbuh) is here in the Topkapı Palace among the Holy Relics. It is preserved within a golden container.
The reason God took his life this way is to show that prophets are no different than normal people. Because, people are always martyred in wars. God does not always protect prophets. They, too, fall martyr in the battlefields, or they are martyred in other ways in different places. In other words, God does this so that people do not lose their freewill. Because, just as a child can be martyred, so can prophets. But this was not the case for Jesus Messiah as he was taken to the side of God, and he prayed alongside angels there. He prayed for 2000 years. If we are to ask him, he would say it was only a couple of seconds. He would say he was gone and returned in an instant. He wouldn't even notice. 2000 years have passed. He prayed for 2000 years. He continuously prays alongside the angels and does nothing else. But people misinterpret, misunderstood this. They say, "God will seat him to His right, he will sit at a pedestal". Does God show Himself as a person to him? There is only God's manifestation. God would surely seat him to His right. Prophet Jesus can sit right next to Him and pray, but it would only be God's manifestation. God does not have a personage. They talk about God as if He is a person. This is wrong.
ALMIGHTY GOD CREATES EVERY CONVERSATION, EVERY BEHAVIOR IN WAY THAT IS PLEASING TO THE BELIEVERS; DESTINY SHOULD BE FOLLOWED PATIENTLY
Everything happens for a reason. It is God Who gives everything, Who takes away, Who informs about everything and make everything speak; when this fact is remembered, God loves His subjects, when this fact is forgotten, it offends God. In other words, believers should always remember that all the power and might belong to God. When people leave God alone, He leaves them alone. God says in the verse of the Quran, "If you forget me," I seek refuge in God from satan, "then I forget you." Do you know what being forgotten mean? It means to become lost in a fathomless darkness, may God forbid. It is to fall down into the well of Gayya in an endless fall. "Remember Me and I will remember you," says God. "If you forget Me and I will forget you," He says. If the subject does not care about God, then God does not care about His subject.
