"Allah". . . The Moon God

"You shall have no other gods before Me"


(The First Commandment  . . . Exodus 20:3)



Ancient Jewish Seal From the Babylonian Exile Period


Ancient Seal From Israel's First Temple Babylonian Exile Period Found In Jerusalem ...

--Jerusalem Post   


 The "Crescent Moon" shown above the alter in this seal is the symbol of the chief Babylonian god "Sin"... which was also the chief god worshiped in ancient Arabia at the time of Mohammed ... the "Crescent Moon" still symbolizes the Arab-Islam moon-god re-named "Allah."



A short excerpt from the article "ALLAH  -  The Moon God" . . .



"In Old Testament times, Nabonidus (555-539 BC), the last king of Babylon, built Tayma, Arabia as a center of Moon-god worship. Segall stated, "South Arabia's stellar religion has always been dominated by the Moon-god in various variations." Many scholars have also noticed that the Moon-god's name "Sin" is a part of such Arabic words as "Sinai," the "wilderness of Sin," etc. When the popularity of the Moon-god waned elsewhere, the Arabs remained true to their conviction that the Moon-god was the greatest of all gods. While they worshipped 360 gods at the Kabah in Mecca, the Moon-god was the chief deity. Mecca was in fact built as a shrine for the Moon-god.

This is what made it the most sacred site of Arabian paganism. In 1944, G. Caton Thompson revealed in her book, The Tombs and Moon Temple of Hureidha, that she had uncovered a temple of the Moon-god in southern Arabia. The symbols of the crescent moon and no less than twenty-one inscriptions with the name Sin were found in this temple. An idol which may be the Moon-god himself was also discovered. This was later confirmed by other well-known archeologists.  The evidence reveals that the temple of the Moon-god was active even in the Christian era. Evidence gathered from both North and South Arabia demonstrate that Moon-god worship was clearly active even in Muhammad's day and was still the dominant cult. According to numerous inscriptions, while the name of the Moon-god was Sin, his title was al- ilah, i.e. "the deity," meaning that he was the chief or high god among the gods. As Coon pointed out, "The god Il or Ilah was originally a phase of the Moon God." The Moon-god was called al- ilah, i.e. the god, which was shortened to Allah in pre-Islamic times. The pagan Arabs even used Allah in the names they gave to their children. For example, both Muhammad's father and uncle had Allah as part of their names . . ."

Serious Warning From The Bible . . .


      "If there is found among you,

        within any of your gates which the LORD your God gives you,

        a man or a woman who has been wicked in the sight of the LORD your God,

        in transgressing His Covenant,

        who has gone and served other gods and worshipped them,

        either the sun

        or MOON

        or any of the host of heaven (stars)

        which I (God) have not commanded ..."    

        (Serious stuff  ... the next verses warn this "abomination" is worthy of death!)

        (Deuteronomy 17:2-5)         (Prophecies ... False Prophets would rise) 



The Bible warned (and still warns) us false Prophets would rise and lead many . . .


       "I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him

        who called you in the grace of Christ,  ["grace" means you can't earn Heaven - He paid for you]

        to a different gospel, which is not another;

        but there are some who trouble you

        and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.

        But even if we,

        or an angel from heaven,    (Mohammed claimed his new 'gospel' came from an angel)

        preach any other gospel to you

        than what we have preached to you,

        let him be accursed.

        As we have said before, so now I say again,

        if anyone preaches any other gospel to you  

        than what you have received, let him be accursed."

        (Galatians 1:6-9)     (The Gospel ... the ASSURANCE of life in Heaven  ... it's NOT too late!!!)


       "Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.

        And because lawlessness (ignoring the Bible) will abound,

        the love of many  (for Jesus Christ ... Yeshua Ha'Mashiach in Hebrew)

        will grow cold." 

        (Matthew 24:11-12)


       "Then if anyone says to you,

       ‘Look, here is the Messiah (Christ)!’ or ‘There!’

        do not believe it.

        For false messiahs (christs) and false Prophets will arise

        and show great signs and wonders (miracles)

        so as to deceive, if possible, even the elect.  (The coming "Antichrist")

        See, I have told you beforehand."  (Meaning - "Listen, this is a prophecy!)

       "Therefore if they say to you,

       ‘Look, He is in the desert!’

        do not go out;

        or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’   (in a coming Jewish Temple)

        do not believe it.

        For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west,

        so also will the coming of the Son of Man be."

        (Matthew 24:23-27)    (Prophecies of Messiah's Return)



The Kingdom of Heaven is available to every man, woman, boy, and girl in this world.  It is freely offered to any and all who will receive it.  Simply learn of Jesus, invite Him into your life as Lord, believe He died on the Cross for all of your sins and rose from the grave (proving there is life in Heaven).  Learn of Him and believe in Him . . . for He was the only one who has ever loved you enough to substitute Himself for you on the Cross.  He suffered and died on the Cross to save you from the torments and darkness of Hell ...  if you will accept it.  That is why He is called Savior.  If you sincerely believe these things and ask Jesus to come into your life and honestly try to stop doing those things God says are wrong, you will go to Heaven.

It's God's Promise!!!


The only unpardonable sin is to reject God's love and His free offer of life in Heaven by rejecting Jesus Christ, who stepped forth from Heaven ... not to condemn the sinner, but to save the sinner (from Hell) and who willingly and lovingly shed His blood on the Cross so we can be washed clean of all of our sins.  The Bible also says there will be no peace in our lives until we make peace with God, through His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.  The Bible also says there will be no peace on Earth until Jesus Christ returns . . .
