Has God abandoned our generation?

A look at the world around us where corruption, crime, misery and chaos are the order of the day, it would seem that we are a people living without a God or guidance of any kind. For this generation it seems unfair that God has not chosen to speak to us like He used to in the past, through messengers and prophets. It seems like we do not have a scripture like our ancestors, nor are we witness to great miracles like the parting of the sea or the healing of the leprous. Has God abandoned our generation? Today, there are numerous evangelists who appear to be preaching the word of God, but something is definitely wrong. All of them are contradicting each other, unlike the past where every messenger/prophet preached the same message. If God is the same God who created the heaven and the earth and you and me then how can He give different instructions to different groups of people? It does not seem logical for God to give different communities different sets of rules because that would be a paradox and lead to confusion. Just like it is today—every community is content following what it thinks is best in accordance with the opinion of its religious leaders.

Each community feels that their religion is perfect and that all the others are wrong. As a result, extremists from every community are taking advantage of a bad situation; manipulating the confused masses.

This definitely cannot be what is planned for us. We know God sent scriptures in the past, then why would He abandon us now? So God must be communicating with our generation too, a generation that is scientifically advanced and does not shy away from challenges of any kind. How would God communicate with a people so advanced if not through a language equally advanced? Through a language that could be neither manipulated nor corrupted; a language whose brilliance would make it easy to see through distortions. Like mathematics – where it is possible for any individual to verify and confirm the results.

If God is to communicate through such an advanced language, then He would do so in our time. There must be a scripture that God has planned for our generation. A scripture that has survived the test of time and has remained intact. We know that during the Nicean

conference the Bible was downsized, making several important books and the Gospel of Jesus unavailable to the common man.

[Quran 5:15] O people of the scripture, our messenger has come to you to proclaim for you many things you have concealed in the scripture, and to pardon many other transgressions you have committed. A beacon has come to you from GOD, and a profound scripture.

This means that the Quran, the only known scripture after the Gospel of Jesus, revealed through Prophet Muhammed, is the oldest scripture that has remained intact.In 1968, Rashad Khalifa, Ph.D., a scientist, entered the Quran into the computer. Through his research he realized that the Quran was mathematically coded in such a manner that it was possible for anyone to recognize distortions and biases.

Given this, we now know that God’s biggest miracle was destined to be revealed to this generation,

[Quran 27:82] At the right time, we will produce for them a creature, made of
