Why did God never appear to Muhammad? or even speak to him?
According to the Bible, the Lord God, YHWH, appeared to His prophets and servants throughout history.
God appeared to Abraham (Genesis 12:7)
God appeared to Isaac (Genesis 26:2)
God appeared to Jacob (Exodus 6:3)
God appeared to Israel (Deuteronomy 31:15)
God appeared to Moses (Exodus 3)
God appeared to Gideon (Judges 6:12)
God appeared to Samuel (1 Samuel 3:21)
God appeared to David (2 Chronicles 3:1)
God appeared to Solomon (1 Kings 3:5)
Can you see where I am going with this?
And why didn’t God give His words DIRECTLY to Muhammad?
The Bible records that the Word of the Lord YHWH came DIRECTLY to His prophets, not through an angel or intermediaries.
The Word of The Lord came to Ezekiel (Ezekiel 1:3)
to Zechariah (Zechariah 7:1)
to Jonah (Jonah 1:1)
to Haggai (Haggai 2:1)
to Elijah (1 Kings 19:9)
to Nathan (2 Samuel 7:4)
to Isaiah (2 Kings 20:4)
to Jeremiah (Jeremiah 34:12)
I could go on and on.
Is it reasonable to believe that, God, in delivering His most important message, “FINAL REVELATION” to the “LAST PROPHET” for “ALL MANKIND”, decides NOT to deliver it Himself? Does it sound like the same God?
For such a CRUCIAL message to go out to the whole world, why wouldn’t He show up as He had always done? God did not even give the message DIRECTLY as He had done in the past but chooses an “angel” to do it? Why?
I know God can do anything. Of course, He can use an angel if He wants to. But when He uses an angel it is often a personal message like what Gabriel delivered to Mary, about the birth of Jesus and to Zechariah, about the birth of John the Baptist.
There must be a reason why God did not appear to Muhammad. What is it?
Can you find out? God does not do anything randomly or for no reason at all. There must be a very specific purpose for Him to do this.
What is it? Finding out about this is not dishonoring to God because learning about the purpose of the Master is the duty of every slave so as to serve Him better.
