"Beloved, believe not every spirit (prophet), but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world." (1 John 4:1-3)
Mr. Al-Kadhi states, "This one is very easy to understand: Every prophet who does not confess that Jesus (pbuh) came in the flesh was not sent by God. He is a false prophet". AND YET MR. AL-KADHI DOESN'T UNDERSTAND.
"Come in the flesh" means "God coming in the flesh" ... the incarnation.
"... and they shall name him Emmanuel, which means, God is with us" (Matthew 1:23). Simply put, Jesus (God) had come in the flesh in the form of a human child.
Jesus said, "Before Abraham was, I AM" (John 8:58). The jews picked up stones to kill Jesus for what? For claiming to be God.
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word became flesh and lived among us" (John 1:1,14).
"For a child has been born for us ... he is named Mighty God" (Isaiah 9:6).
In the Old Testament God said, "Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: I am the first and the last; besides me there is no god" (Isaiah 44:6). In the New Testament, Jesus said, "I am the first and the last ..." (Revelation 1:17).
Muhammad rejected that Jesus (God) came in the flesh. In plain english, Muhammad was not a prophet from God according to the Scriptures.
