Peace and Blessings on the Prophets and Messengers of Allah,especially on the Master of the Beginning and End ,Our Master Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam).
Quoting the verse from John (14:17) Christians claim that Spirit of Truth is a hidden Spirit. Not Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). Because they say: Everyone (the world) has seen Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam), but Spirit of the truth- the world neither knows him nor sees him!.
I pray for the Christian brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, sons and daughters among them, that may Allah guide them to Islam and Truth,Ameen. We hold no hatred or malice against Christians. But we are trying to wake them up. And we are trying to show then the way to the promised Holy Spirit and Living Waters (the Spiritual Wisdom and Truth) that Stands higher and unchallenged before all earthly wisdom and earthly designations!

The Christian Argument:
John 14:17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
Yes, there is nothing wrong with this verse!. But this verse is a victim of wrong interpretation!. There is a spiritual meaning to the verse. Christians who claim to have holy Spirit and Christ in them should see a high wisdom in it rather than seeing the literal meaning!
This verse is applicable to Christ (Peace be upon him) as well. Because the world neither Saw Christ nor knew Christ!, that’s why they rejected Christ!. So the Spirit of the Truth too, not everyone see or know the Spirit. Because only true believers understand Christ, God and Holy Spirits.
Christians failed to understand this verse and interpreted it too literally. Because Everyone (pagans, Jews, Pharisees, Herodes, Gentiles, disciples and so on) have seen Christ (Peace be upon him). So can we say that everyone has seen Christ as he should be seen?
No, this is the meaning of the verse about Spirit of Truth too!. Seeing is Knowing! According to the Gospel, even Philip did not see Christ, though Christ was with him so long!. Because he Philip has seen Christ as he should be seen and observing, he would definitely will know God through pure Submission to Christ (Peace be upon him). God Almighty sent all prophets to bring people near to Allah Almighty Exalted!
John 14: 8 Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us.” 9 Jesus replied, “Philip, I have been with you all this time, and still you do not know Me? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? The words I say to you, I do not speak on My own. Instead, it is the Father dwelling in Me, carrying out His work.
Christians took just John 14:8-9 out of context to say Jesus is god!, but the whole context make it clear that Jesus is not God, but God is Working in Christ!
I would ask Christians to humble themselves and acknowledge to themselves, their very earthly interpretation of the scriptures. So many people have seen Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) and Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him), but those who accepted the prophets ,they have seen them truly, and those who rejected them, they did not see this prophets.
Seeing and knowing is not earthly vision and knowledge, but to know the real station,rank and honour of these Prophets in the Divine Presence and to be with them to live for their sake with full love and submission!.
The blessings of the Holy Spirit were only given to a few disciples.
See John 12:35 Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going.
The Fact: Middle age Christianity went on to Dark ages for about 900 years. Corruption and adoption of Pagan traditions weakened Christian spirituality and religiosity and over the time Church and religious influence declined!.
Islam paved the way for renaissance in the Europe and whole world. Christian scholars unable to defend themselves against Philosophers, took Islamic religious and theology works of the 10th century and used it to answer opponents of Christianity. They depended on the works of Sufi Scholars like Imam Ghazzali (R.A) and Imam Qushairi (R.A) to counter threat from European philosophers! The clear evidence for the fact that the massive blessings of Holy Spirit (See John 16:7-9) did not emerge from the Churches!
The Blessings of Holy Spirit Did not Come from Churches:
John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
John 16: 8 And when He comes, He will convict the world in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 in regard to sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see Me.
However, this great blessings did not occur in the Golden period of Church!, rather Christian world adopted secularism and modernism and today, whole world is following this corrupt ways established by irreligious people followed by colonialism and nationalism and globalisation!. Christians seek knowledge of religion from universities and colleges from the teachers who are not committed themselves to do the Will of God and Christ!, this junk knowledge does no benefit to be honest, but true heavenly wisdom (Living Waters) to be given by Holy Spirit with unmatched quality and deep wisdom!.
If you have your own spring water at home, you don’t go to shop to buy mineral water by spending money!.
Christians quote John 14:16 and say that, prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) dead and he is not with muslims anymore.
John 14:16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever–
This verse, they took again too literally to say , the Advocate is Hidden Spirit. Even if I have to accept their argument, still it contradict Christian claim to have holy spirit!. Because the Advocate will be with you forever, did not come true in the Christian world. Christian world fell into dark age of the medieval period!. And if Advocate was with in the Churches helping forever, then how come corruption and deterioration happened in the Christian world?. How come they had to depend on Islamic scholarship to argue with western philosophers?
This Advocate with you forever, is about Spiritually with us forever. And true followers of Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam, were always received help and guidance from his spirituality. The biography and history of Muslim saints is enough evidence for this matter!.
Learn about Rumi, Ibn Al Arabi, Al Ghazzali and so on!
Even Christ declares that he will be with his followers forever.
See John 14:19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.
See John 14:19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.
So we can see that “Advocate” will be with you forever, does not mean he will be physically with them forever. Just as if there are 1 billion followers, it is not right to say 1 Billion advocate should stand physically with 1 billion followers when someone half baked ones interpret and question this verse for advocate to be physically present . We need to grow up a little bit more to understand the scriptures.
The Final Truth about Spirit of Truth Which is Unchallenged by Anyone!:
Even if I consider the arguments of Christians about The Spirit of Truth being unseen by the world and unknown to the world. Still there is a problem for Christians. Because the Bible prophesies the “Advocate-Spirit of Truth (Advocate) Will Stand Finally on the Earth!
Job 16:25 Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high.
Job 19:25 “As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, And at the last He will take His stand on the earth.
This verse from Job 16:19 blows up all Christian arguments about the Advocate being a hidden spirit. The Advocate, whose coming is blessings for whole world, he will stand on the earth, who convict whole world about Judgement, sin and righteousness , because previous revelations and the way shown by Christ were faded (altered). Think about it!
God is a Spirit, He Himself is Holy (Holy Spirit), and there are other Holy Spirits of God. Advocate who is to come is the Spirit of God Himself, A Light Manifested with the Spirit of God in him (alaihiswalathu wa salam).
Whole verses in Isaiah 42 speaks about this Spirit of God (the Advocate) , Who will emerge from Kedar (from the House of Ishmael) from Arabia!
Isaiah 42:11-3 Let the wilderness and its towns raise their voices; let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice. Let the people of Sela sing for joy; let them shout from the mountaintops. Let them give glory to the LORD and proclaim his praise in the islands.The LORD will march out like a champion, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies.
Psalm 89:37- Thala ala Badroo alainaa:
Psalm 89:37 “It shall be established forever like the moon, And the witness in the sky is faithful.” Selah.
طلع البدر علينا
ṭala‘a ‘l-badru ‘alaynā
The full moon rose over us
من ثنيات الوداع
min thaniyyāti ‘l-wadā‘
From the valley of Wada‘
وجب الشكر علينا
wajaba ‘l-shukru ‘alaynā
And it is incumbent upon us to show gratitude
ما دعى لله داع
mā da‘ā li-l-lāhi dā‘
For as long as anyone in existence calls out to Allah
أيها المبعوث فينا
’ayyuha ‘l-mab‘ūthu fīnā
Oh our Messenger amongst us
جئت بالأمر المطاع
ji’ta bi-l-’amri ‘l-muṭā‘
Who comes with the exhortations to be heeded
جئت شرفت المدينة
ji’ta sharrafta ‘l-madīnah
You have brought to this city nobility
مرحبا يا خير داع
marḥaban yā khayra dā‘
Welcome you who call us to a good way ,
So we see that, the Advocate Will Stand on Earth, and the world Will see his Works and Might. The people who worship idols will be crushed. And he will convict the world. This Advocate is Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam, who removed idols from the Kedar and Established the religion of Prophet Abraham (Peace be upon him)
See Isaiah 42:17 But those who trust in idols, who say to images, ‘You are our gods,’ will be turned back in utter shame.
This prophesies in full context, did not appear from the Christian world. They denied the Advocate Coming in flesh in Kedar with the Manifested Power of the Spirit of God!. Only a Holy Spirit Will Receive another Holy Spirit. Because Holy Spirit Will not Dwell in the Unholy!]
Isaiah 42:1 “Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations.
So we can see that the Spirit of Truth Who stood in the Settlement of Kedar and defeated idolatry and strayed ways and brought forward the religion of Abraham (alaihissalam) is Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam).
Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) did not go to Kedar, nor raise battle cry nor fight enemies!. The Way of Gospel is different from the Way of Advocate. Advocate brought the way like the way of Prophet Moses (Peace be upon him)
See Deuteronomy 18:18-19:
Deuteronomy 18:5-19 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites, and I will put my words in his mouth. He will tell them everything I command him. I myself will call to account anyone who does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name.
Deuteronomy 34:10 Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face,
Christians says that Covenant of Prophet Moses (Peace be upon him) is “Covenant of Conviction” and Covenant of Prophet Christ (Peace be upon him) is “Covenant of Reconciliation”, and we see that the Covenant of Advocate is “Covenant of Conviction”, making familiar with the covenant Laws of Prophet Moses (Peace be upon him) as stated in John 16:7-10
RELIGION OF PROPHET ABRAHAM (ALAIHISWALATHU WA SALAM)
Quran 2:130 And who would be averse to the religion of Abraham except one who makes a fool of himself. And We had chosen him in this world, and indeed he, in the Hereafter, will be among the righteous.
Quran 2:132 And Abraham instructed his sons [to do the same] and [so did] Jacob, [saying], “O my sons, indeed Allah has chosen for you this religion, so do not die except while you are Muslims.”
Quran 2:133 Or were you witnesses when death approached Jacob, when he said to his sons, “What will you worship after me?” They said, “We will worship your God and the God of your fathers, Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac – one God. And we are Muslims [in submission] to Him.”
Quran 2:135 And they say: Be Jews or Christians, then ye will be rightly guided. Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Nay, but (we follow) the religion of Abraham, the upright, and he was not of the idolaters.
So we must be intelligent and clever, to save and rescue our Souls from ruining!. It is possible only by accepting the truth and live according to the truth, by Sacrificing our own desires and breaking barriers that we built against the truth and by abandoning falsehood and live by the truth!
Peace be upon the Prophets of Allah
Praise be to Allah Most High Most Great
Q&A The Prophecies in the New Testament Book John 14 and John 16 Speaks about Prophet of Islam:
Question: Christians say that the Prophecies in the book of John about “the Advocate” does not speak about Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). How can we answer to Christians and make a difference in their understanding?
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Allahumma Swalli Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Ala Aali Sayyidina Muhammadin Wa Sallim. We believe and preach and that Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) was foretold in the Torah and Gospel. First, I will explain why we believe the verses in the Book of John is speaking about Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). And we are happy to accept and respond if anyone can produce a better argument based on John’s Gospel.
In the Book of John Chapter 14 it is Written:
John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will bec in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. 21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
John 14: 23 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.
25 “All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
An Insight into Gospel of John Chapter 14
Let us look with a deep insight into what the whole conversation is In John 14 Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) had said.
In John 14:15 Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) says that those who really love him will keep his commands. We Muslims love and revere Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) and his way (the way of Gospel). So today many groups claiming to be followers of Christ. Muslims agree that true followers of Christ are on the right path , as Allah Sent Christ (Peace be upon him) as a Prophet and Messenger to the Children of Israel and those who keep the commands of Christ are truly followers of right path. But who can say, they live as the Christ lived? ( see 1 John 2:6 Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.). Therefore, those who really follow Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) are those who live like he lived. It is not I am saying, but the Bible says! So when we live like Jesus (peace be upon him), living water will flow from him. We will discuss about this in another topic.
In John 14:16-17 it is written as; 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will bec in you.
It is said that another Advocate will be sent to the people, to help you and be with you forever (to eternity/everlasting). The problem with English language is the words cannot convey deep meaning. Since Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) spoke in Aramaic (mother tongue) and Hebrew (Scripture language) it is obvious that original Gospel was revealed in Hebrew and Aramaic.
See John 20:16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means “Teacher”).
No holy books had ever revealed in Greek Language. Greek Bible is a later make by the Romans and they used the language which reflect their previous religion and philosophy. Because they used to call their (Pagan) gods as Father, especially Zeus (the greek mythical god who live in the heaven) and his son who born to the daugther of human (Perseus). They adopted their native religious phrases and put into the Bible, this caused people to get confused and deceived to believe a new ideology which Jesus is son of God! Jews also adopted this kind of words in their books, because they were living centuries in Pagan empires and at times they were worshiping false gods. And we will discuss this in another topic.
Christians argue that, Advocate will be with you forever, cannot be Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam), because , Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) died at the age of 63 and therefore, he cannot be the Advocate which is prophesied in the Bible. Unfortunately, I can say that, this kind of earthly low level understanding should not come from those who strongly believe and preach “holy spirit and Jesus is in them”!
The reason is: Advocate to be with the People forever does not necessarily mean that the Advocate has to be with people forever physically!. It is speaking about the Spirit of Advocate will be forever and the Advocate is the Seal of the Prophets and no Prophet has to become after the Advocate. He Mark the End of the Prophets line! And the system in this world is based on laws of nature.When the Advocate is sent to whole world, the Advocate to be physically with everyone in everyone’s home (7 billion people) or with every individual physically is not something that naturally abide according to God’s law.
The Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) left the mortal life and become immortal and lives forever. All Prophets live in the immortal world in glorious splendor!. I can see the lack of understanding which is coming from the Christian preachers, because they failed to believe in Jesus as the Scripture says, and which caused to cut off from receiving living waters!
Many pious people have seen Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) with naked eye. I suggest Christian preachers to study about Imam Busiri, Imam Suyuti and other great mystical Muslim Imams.
The Bible also agree that Prophets are not Just Dead People, but they live a Supernatural life in Glory and Power.
See Luke 9:30 Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus.
Another argument from Christians is that, they quote John 14:17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will bec in you. They quote this verse to say that, the world cannot accept “Advocate, because the world neither sees nor knows him. But Advocate lives with you and will be in you. Christians by quoting this verse, not understanding it with spiritual insight says that this is not speaking about Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam), because whole people who lived in the time of Prophet has seen Prophet. But the world cannot see nor know the advocate!
This argument and understanding is again very earthly and silly, I would say, “Silly Answers to Sincere Questions”, Instead of calling it “Serious Answers to Sincere Questions”, the Missionary book I read from “Word of Hope Ministries”.
Because Christ also says: John 14:19 “Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.
But Christians quote, Muslims and others seeing Christ in vision and Christians making videos of conversion, but Christ says , those who do not believe in him will not see him, but the believers will see him. The world was not seeing Moses and Elijah (Peace be upon them) coming in glorious splendor. So the real believers sees and knows the Prophets. It is about a spiritual vision not seeing a physical vision. It is not speaking about an earthly seeing. For example everyone has seen Christ , what does it mean really seeing the Christ?. If someone has really seen the Christ, then they will also see God through the Spiritual Annihilation in the Christ. This is what Christ (Peace be upon him)says in John 14 20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.
We have an example from the question of Philip, Philip though he was with Christ for long time, he had not seen Christ!
See John 14:8-9 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
Christians again misquote this verse to say Jesus is God , only someone with a very low earthly understanding can conclude with this verses that Jesus claimed Lordship!. Jesus Christ replies to Philip that, O Man you are with me long time, you were heedless in following me, if you have followed me as I commanded you would have known God!. The next verse clearly says the meaning of this verse: John 14 20: On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. This is how Philip can know God and see God by (truly) seeing Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him). In future they will really that Jesus is in the Father, they are in Jesus and Jesus is in them. Not as “Jesus is the Father!!!” But Jesus Christ in the God
As I wrote earlier,, I will clarify the “Father and Son” concept and Christian arguments, based on the Scriptures itself.
In-Shaa’Allah We will explain this further in another topic, Named Sufism of Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) and his followers. So the world knowing and seeing Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is not based on an earthly seeing, but seeing the real spiritual glory and power. Which only a few perfect believers who walk in full obedience to Allah Almighty (God of Abraham) can see and perceive!. Though so many people have seen Christ (peace be upon him) only some special people have really seen his reality.
In John 14:26 it is written “ But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
The Advocate, is also a Holy Spirit, there are Seven Spirits of God and all Spirits of God are Holy (See Revelation 4:5). It is another theological issue the words “Father and Son” of the greek Gospel that need to be clarified in another topic. As I already have given a short note, how the Greek Roman theological languages influenced the Greek Written New Testament books, even many later Aramaic Hebrew translations were copied from Greek. Some Christians argue that Greek is the Primary Language of the Gospel, they say Greek was the Business language as the Roman Empire exist today, like English language become the world language. But if I am in my home with my own tribe, I don’t speak English, rather communicate with my own language (mother tongue) for the my family and relative to get a better understanding of what I said. Scholars agree that Christ preached in Aramaic and Greek Language, Aramaic is the mother tongue of Christ and Hebrew has always been the language of their scriptures. Though UK rule England,Wales and Scotland, I do not think, a Welsh family who lives in Pembrokeshire will speak in textual english language while sitting among their own people there!
So the verse says: Advocate will teach all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you”
After Christ (Peace be upon him), though the massive spreading of Christianity in the Europe and many Kingdoms adopted Christianity as official religion, we see that in the Middle ages Europe and whole world fell in to the age which is called “Dark Age” of the Medieval Age!. If the Advocate was with Christians and in the Churches forever as they interpret the verses about the Advocate, then we would have seen a golden civilisation rising up in the Christian World. But as a Historical fact, Islam paved the way for Enlightenment and Renaissance in the Europe. The Advocate teach all things, but Christian congregations never produced this fruit which is to come from Advocate. But Islam produced a revolution of Knowledge Wisdom Spirituality and Statehood throughout Islamic Golden age and it’s ways of Spiritual Wisdom and Spiritual fellowship still continuing and growing day by day, through the expansion of Sufi Paths throughout the world.
As, the Bible also says, one can recognize the real heavenly tree through the fruits it bears.
Matthew 12:33 “Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit.
We believe Christ is one of the highest Prophets and his way is one of the highest spiritual ways. So who has that way now, who has that living Gospel now, it is with those who live as Jesus did (see 1 John 2:6). We always agree to that way of Christ. Just like many Christian groups does not agree with other Christian groups, we disagree with whole Christianity. There is one true way of Christ and it produce the real heavenly fruits, we are never rejecting that holy way of Christ.
So a person who is in the real Way of Christ, will recognise Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) and Islam. And he will accept the truth with whole heart and whole might.
1 John 1:6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.
So since the true followers will be aided by Holy Spirit into Wisdom,Understanding, Fear of the God and God’s Laws in their Spirit, they will know the truth and will not be confused and will not be in disorder.
We pray for everyone, there are many so called Muslims too who claim to be Muslims but who do not follow the teachings of Islam, but walk in misguidance and error. We must pray for all as the people are victims of the confusions spread by a few!. Ultimately, Satan is the enemy of the children of Adam (Peace be upon him)
An Insight to the Gospel of John Chapter 16:
The Book of John Chapter 16 it is Written:
John 16: 7 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8 When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 about sin, because people do not believe in me; 10 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; 11 and about judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.
12“I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.
In the Book of John , Chapter 16 verse 7 Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) declares that his departure is for the good of the whole world. As the Advocate who is coming to whole world, but God Assigned Christ (Peace be upon him) only to the Children of Israel (See Matthew 15:24 Then Jesus said to the woman, “I was sent only to help God’s lost sheep–the people of Israel.”), It is insignificant for Christ (Peace be upon him) to stay around. Because God Almighty Assigned Christ (Peace be upon him) and Gospel to the Children of Israel. And Before Ascending to the Heavens, Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) said to the disciples to proclaim the Good News of the Coming of the last Prophet to the whole world. Allah Almighty Created Man for His Servanthood , and the prophets are assigned with clear and prescribed duties. So Christ peace be upon him says that his departure is for the good of all. Christ (Peace be upon him) by saying so (John 16:7) ,he is inviting people to the Advocate. On the contrary to this Call to the Advocate, Christians inviting to Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him). They are not calling to Advocate in the mainstream Churches , though sometimes they make claim that they have Holy Spirit as Advocate inside them.
“Unless I go away the Advocate will not come to you”, It is a divine protocol that, Christ must go for the Advocate to Come. But the other Holy Spirit (May Allah’s Blessings be upon him) was here before Christ, supporting previous Prophets and Mary Mother of Jesus (Peace be upon them). The other Holy Spirit was with Christ when Christ was here. Helping and Supporting Christ, As I said there are seven (holy) spirits of God (Revelation 4:5).
Luke 4:14 Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside.
The Holy Spirit was in Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him), He did not have leave for Holy Spirit to come.
Matthew 12:18 “Here is my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations.
So we can see that, more than one Spirits of God involved in this Mission of Christ and the Advocate who come after Christ in later days, after Days of Darkness (see Matthew 13:35 Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going.)
The Words that Christ has spoken is more important to us. After Christ, the world entered in Dark Age of the Middle age, then the light of Islam shone forth from Arabia (from Kedar see Isaiah 42:11-17 and Mount Paran see Deuteronomy 33:2) and spread to whole world, from Japan to America.
Christians argue that God and Christ sent Jesus and Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) was not sent by God and Christ, they use the argument “Father and Son will sent” the Advocate and God is not “Father” in Islam. This is another argument and we will explain it.
In the Book of John 16 it continues as ” 8 When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 about sin, because people do not believe in me; 10 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; 11 and about judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.”
The Christians says that, Laws has come to an End, and only Law is Love God and Love your Neighbour, But we see that Advocate coming to this world with a full set of Laws to Judge the World. About Sin ,righteousness, Judgement etc. This is coming of the Law of Quran (Shariah) and the Coming of Prophetic Sunnah (Righteousness).
Because Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) have foretold that Jews and Christians (Christians who continue to following Jewish books) are following the Human Traditions (See Matthew 15:9 ,Mark 7:7-9). So Only through the Coming of Advocate “God’s Righteousness Will be Established on the Earth.
Matthew 15:9 They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.’”
Mark 7:7-9 They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.’You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions.”And he continued, “You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions!
Romans 10:3 Since they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness.
Only in Islam, a person can worship God as Commanded by God Almighty through the clear and complete teachings through the Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam). All other religions changed their ways and worship God through their own perceptions and human righteousness ,instead of following God’s Righteousness (laws and Commands) . Because as the scriptures says, the priests have distorted the commandments of God and which is abrogated by the coming of the New Revelation.
So Quran declares that, Islam is coming as a Criteria for Mankind to distinguish truth and falsehood.
Quran 2:185 The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong).
In the Book of John 16 it continues: 16:12“I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
Christ says he had much more things to say to his disciples (Peace be upon them all), but he decided not to reveal everything. Because it is clear from many incidents that they did not understand everything he had spoken to them already! (see Mark 9:32 But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it.)
The Spirit of Truth will guide you into all the truth. Today, no Christians can come and say, they have been guided into all the truth.In the 10th century, Christian world highly relied on Islamic Wisdom to answer philosophers ,free thinkers and intellectual debaters.
The Advocate (Spirit of Truth) Will not speak his Own words. But Can only Speak what he hears. This is the distinguished nature of the Advocate. He only speak what he hears. But we see in the Christian theology that, Christian version of Holy Spirit, who is called as god, does not need to speak from someone else (only what he hears) and Christian version of Holy Spirit, they say is Equal to God the Father in glory and power, is not bound by the Law: which is “he will speak ONLY what he Hears”
Christians will not be able to argue that Holy Spirit will speak from Jesus, because, Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) was in the help and support of Holy Spirit, while he was here, not vice verse. And someone who have equal glory with God, does not need to to rely on someone else, and only able to get information from “what he hears”.
This Prophecy is only fit in the life of Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam).
Quran also says; 53:3- 10 Nor does he speak from [his own] inclination. It is not but a revelation revealed, He has been taught (this Quran) by one mighty in power [Jibrael (Gabriel)].One of soundness. And he rose to [his] true form While he was in the highest part of the horizon: Then he approached and came closer,Till he was (distant) two bows’ length or even nearer,And he revealed to His Servant what he revealed.
Quran was revealed through Angel Gabriel (Peace be upon him). But the Christian version of Gospel was not revealed through an Angels. Christians also agree to that. This verses in the Quran are very parallel to the verses in the Books of John.
Quran is Known as Eternal Gospel in the New Testament:
Revelation 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, (King James Bible)
Quran is known as Everlasting “Good Word”. Which God Almighty revealed through Angel Gabriel (Peace be upon him) to the Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam. And it is Preached to whole world in it’s original language as revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) taught it to his companions and through them to the whole world. And only Quran have the status today that is recited whole world in the original language it was revealed. In all other books, we have seen contradictions errors and confusion. But Quran remains in it’s original recitation and it is preserved in the spirits of those who memorized it and cannot be corrupted, rather than preserved in books which any human can easily add his own doctrines and human traditions into it!. It is an old age Muslim custom to memorize Quran, and to recite whole Quran in Ramadan night prayers and to recite whole Quran in the house of the deceased. And remember this practice existed among Muslims when there is no printing press and books. So undoubtedly only Quran is the everlasting Gospel and it is preaching in it’s original language in the whole World.
I hope now, that the “Word of hope Ministries” understood : Why do the followers of Jesus (Christians) need another Book from God (See Revelation 14:6) other than the Bible, and another Saviour (See Another Advocate in John 14:16)in addition to Jesus Christ!
Christ (peace be upon him) are honored and revered by whole Muslims. Quran teach not to show favoritism to Prophets (See Quran 2:285). To believe in all Prophets. “He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you“. The Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) proclaimed that “the Religion of all Prophets are One and their mothers are different”. All Prophets are Paternal brothers. Spiritually meaning: All Prophets are brothers who are the manifest of the Divine Light. So don’t argue now that whether God is Father or mother of the mankind!.
Quran says: [an-Nisa’ 4:157 ] And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger – they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) glorified Christ (Peace be upon him). Christians said, Jesus was tortured and killed by the workers of the Devil!. But Islam declared that Christ was not crucified nor killed. But he was taken to heavens by Angels of God.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 55, Number 651:Narrated Abu Huraira:I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “I am the nearest of all the people to the son of Mary, and all the prophets are paternal brothers, and there has been no prophet between me and him (i.e. Jesus).”
Sahih Bukhari Volume 3, Book 43, Number 656:Narrated Abu Huraira:Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until the son of Mary (i.e. Jesus) descends amongst you as a just ruler, he will break the cross, kill the pigs, and abolish the Jizya tax. Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it (as charitable gifts).
Though Christ (Peace be upon him) had said this, Christians who fell into the trap of confusion and disorder , and under the influence of the Greek writers and the incident of the crucifixion of the substitute , Greek-Roman Pagan theory of Human sacrifice to please gods prevailed in the Christian thoughts and they believed Jesus died on the cross for the sins of the world.
But Christ clearly said: Mark 9:1 And he said to them, “Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see that the kingdom of God has come with power.”
John 8:21 Once more Jesus said to them, “I am going away, and you will look for me, and you will die in your sin. Where I go, you cannot come.”
John 8:22 This made the Jews ask, “Will he kill himself? Is that why he says, ‘Where I go, you cannot come’?”
John 8:23 But he continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.
Christ (peace be upon him) giving a cleaver answer to the Jews, and to believers who have spiritual insight, it is a clear answer. Christ did not say to the Jews that: “I am going away, you will look for me and you will find me and you I will not commit suicide nor run away but you will find me and will arrest me and I will die on the cross for the sins of whole world and everyone will receive salvation”!!!
So we can see that it is in Islam Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) truly glorified and honored. And he will come back to the world and putting an end to all lawlessness and falsehood that had grown stronger a while after his ascension.
Quran Sura an-Nisa’ 4:159 There is not one of the People of the Scripture (Christians and Jews) but will believe (accept true faith) in him [jesus] before his death, and on the Day of Resurrection he will be a witness against them.
Sunan Abu Dawud Book 37, Number 4310: Narrated Abu Huraira (Radiyallahu Anhu): The Prophet (alaihiswalathu wa salam) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (pbuh). He will descend (to the earth). When you see him, recognize him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizya. Allah will cause all religions to perish except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.
So this marks the summary of the explanation of the verses in John 14 and John 16 which speaks about the Advocate.
I invite all people to accept the truth and come to the Spiritual fellowship, the Living Islam, Sufi Islam of the friends of Allah, the Inspired Servants of Allah Almighty Exalted. The True Spiritual heirs of the Prophets. The true bearers of the Spiritual Wisdom and Knowledge of God.
Quran 25.33. And also, they never come to you with any (false) argument (to taunt and provoke you) but that We provide you with the truth (to counter their false arguments) and a better exposition (which enables and deepens understanding).
Peace be upon the Prophets of Allah
Praise be to Allah,Lord of the Worlds
By: Jouhar Ali Naqshbandi Al-Hassani
Representative of the Naqshbandi Sufi Orde
Advocate (John 16:7) comes with a New Covenant:
Christian Belief: Old Covenant- Covenant of Conviction
Christian belief: New Covenant- Covenant of Reconciliation (Last Covenant?)
Covenant of the Advocate- Covenant of Conviction
Contrary to the Christian belief, which is “Jesus is the End of Prophets” , Bible says that Advocate Comes with a New Covenant After Christ!
In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent
If.one person from any Christian congregation can come and testify he live as Jesus did, then we can understand that he lead the way to Christ. all else noises are poor arguments
Christ had 3 years ministry atleast someone can prove he lived as Christ lived then he may be following Christ with true faith. All else is nonsense arguments. Because new Testament commands to live like Jesus and only those who live like Christ are true followers of Christ according to the new Testament. It’s not my saying
Can any christian congregation produce at least one person from entire Charismatic congregations who lived at least one year like Christ?
If.not then no one has really followed what the disciples wrote in the new Testament and the new Testament calls those who claim to follow Jesus but does not live in light like Jesus are liars
And it is a big question mark in the new Testament to entire Christian congregations, it is not an Islamic norm. But the norm and parts of the covenants which you suppose to follow
My response end here and waiting to see a living Christ who is in Christ and Christ Is in him in all definitions of true follower according to the gospel
When That person comes I will speak about Prophet of Islam. Let’s see the difference between him and the rest of the self acclaimed Christians.
Good night and may God guide you to the truth and salvation Ameen Living Christ means someone who lived as Christ lived
Christ brought only one way to salvation it is there when he was in this world. A person who died in the second year of his ministry also receive salvation according to the gospel. But the salvation theory of Christianity only begins after the so called death of Christ, not with the living Christ (Peace be upon him)
1 John 2:6 Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.
Christ offered Salvation for Children of Israel in this conditions:
1- They should Accept him as An Apostle and High priest (See Hebrews 3:1)
2- To deny their lower self and follow him completely
3- To follow the teachings of the Gospel as a code of life.
Christ did not Offer Salvation to the Children of Israel in this Conditions:
1- To be crucified on the Roman Cross by the request of evil priests!
2- By dying on the Cross to give salvation for all.
3- To set free form Laws and Commandments.
4- To Worship him as god in the flesh!
5- To teach trinity!
This information are based on the gospel (spoken word of Christ) not my own
And if you believe Messiah missed the points you are making and passed it.to Paul to write about it. Then it again contradict what Christ said: “for everything I have learned from my Father I have made known to you “
Because the way of Christ which is made complete and the rest of the knowledge should pour out from the Advocate, who work to redeem people by His Own account, not by the account of Christ. Though he remind everything Christ said, the work of Advocate is solely His work a new mission. Which have condemnations and conviction
That itself prove the work of Advocate is a new Covenant.
John 16:8 New American Standard Bible”And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment;
In Christian doctrine the Moses law does convict and Gospel does reconciliation.
And the Advocate is Prophet Like Moses, not Jesus.
Because Advocate convict, Christ did teach repentance and receiving the blessings of Holy Spirit.
Christ did not convict. See
John. 12:47 New International Version”If anyone hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge that person. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.
ADVOCATE IS THE JUDGE. THE PROPHET LIKE MOSES.
Who will convict the world?:
John 12:48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day.
John 16:8-9 When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: about sin, because people do not believe in me;
We can clearly see that the Judge, about whom Christ speaking about (in John 12:48) and Job (Peace be upon them) is speaking about is actually The Advocate.
As you believe Christ came to reconcile, not to convict, the help of Holy Spirit to disciples was also help in the way of Christ for a time.
But the Advocate who is another Holy Spirit, is coming with a completely new way which has conviction as the laws of Moses. This is very clear that the Advocate is Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa Salam and who is the Prophet like Moses (Alahissalam) . As the Christians too agree as.you posted the way of Christ is reconciliation not conviction.
Now this dispute about holy spirit Advocate Prophet like Moses clearly answered and closed.
(after reading this,comment whether you experienced a new stream of living water in my words)
Also in the Prophet like Moses matter, Moses had power to give the law according to the Bible. And Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa Salam also had given laws in his authority. But Christ did not exercise independent authority.
John 5:30 By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.
This does not invalidate previous topic about “I came not to judge”. Because this judgment is not Christ’s own judgment. But just transmitted Judgement from God as a speaker .
For example in a court, a judge judging himself is different from a representative of the judge read out the judgement from high Court in a crown court.
Christ sees himself as a representative of the heavenly Judge, God. Who just reads out the judgement from God
The truth is clear and people still dread in their own doctrines.
Yes, Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa Salam had authority to give laws. Just as Moses peace be upon him had authority to give laws on behalf of God .
When you seek evidences as a student of knowledge, I would give you references .
This is why when Christ returns, he will follow the principles of law, judgment and convictions and punish the lawless. Means, when Christ when returns, he will follow the law of the Advocate. Which is the covenants of conviction as well as reconciliation. But according to you Christ’s covenant is not of conviction, but of reconciliation. But when Christ Return he follow the way of the Advocate, which he well-judge wicked and punish them. This is pointing to Islamic Prophecies that Jesus follow the last revelations. Not Gospel or Torah. Because Torah was only given to Jews, and Gospel only to Israel (if Christian say Gospel given to whole world) then know that Gospel of Christianity does not convict but reconcile. So the next book only to be from God’s Laws is Quran.
Making things clear to you.
You can hide from truth for a while, but you cannot escape from truth…
The truth is Bible support Islam. It does not support trinity, salvation plan etc taught by church. You can try to prove otherwise
When you make statements tell why you think so, by giving scriptures references. I hope you understand that your and and my words and thoughts will not count unless it is fully backed by Scripture references
And anyone can distort references from scriptures to make a false claim. This is why we need a full discussion to the entirety of the Scriptures on each topic. Not a cherry pick references. But cross examinations through the line of prophets and words of Christ. Because so many passages in the Bible is not written by those Prophets, in whose name the Scriptures is preached
Therefore no words of the Bible authors should contradict the covenant commands, and traditions taught by Christ or the Prophets .
Because the authors of the Bible have no authority to change a command or covenant or traditions of the Christ or previous prophets. Only the Prophets revealed in the Scriptures and given scriptures can bring new covenant new command of new traditions.
The Scriptures are taught in spirits. Even your Bible admit it.
That means, God’s people will receive scriptures in their Spirit
Be a man of God, then all scriptures will flow from your heart like a stream .
Means word of God, not words of men
A man will not become expert in faith by studying books. Because no Prophets came with printed books and leaflets, distributing to their followers. This system are very earthly that you see today. It does not fit for heavenly fellowship .
Of course I use earthly printed books to answer those who rely on it. You don’t use rocket to punish the children at home . You don’t bring a tiger to classroom for children to learn about tiger.
We believe Jesus is the Messiah. Christ is Prophet of Allah. .Stop joking
All Muslims believe Jesus is Messiah as Quran states Jesus is Messiah, Apostle and high priest of God, as also stated in Hebrews 3:1. All Muslims agrees to it.
And also a servant of God (acts 3:13)And the Bible says he became a son at some point of his life. Not an eternal only son. See Genesis and Hebrews
Hebrews 1:5 For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father”? Or again, “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son”?
See “today” “will be”
This is not eternal (only) begotten, but an attained status as high priest. Nothing to do with Christian understanding of the “Son concept”.
According to Hebrews Son Means “High Priest”:
Hebrews 5:5 In the same way, Christ did not take on himself the glory of becoming a high priest. But God said to him, “You are my Son; today, I have become your Father.”
Becoming Son means becoming High Priest!, the Greek Influence in New Testament used the word “Son” for the Title “High Priest”
The greek philosophy influenced the authors of the new Testament and old testament. This is why Jews considered calling son of God is blasphemy.
Genesis 6:2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose.
Christians says this is angels who are sons of God, that God call them sons of God In Genesis 6:2, which contradict the claim of Hebrews 1:5
So you should recognise by now which spirit is making Jesus as son of God in the new Testament and which spirit making angels as sons of God. In the old testament. Same spirit cannot contradict what he says. Neither Fatigue nor tiredness affect God’s spirit. (see Quran 2:255). That the Spirit to forget what has written in Genesis 2000 years ago before Christ about angels who were made as sons of God when they were created.
May be the Spirit that inspired the Hebrews 1:5 was not existed during the writing of Genesis, not known Genesis 6:2
So know the truth and truth will set you free. The Spirit that should come to help disciples to be spirit of wisdom and understanding. Not a spirit that is ignorant about the Genesis, and Exodus
And says only to Jesus God said he will be son. The same spirit said to Christians Jesus is god. The same spirit said to Paul, Joseph (peace be upon him) had 75 FAMILY members, while three books of Moses (peace be upon him) says that 70 family members in the family of Jacob
Isaiah 11:2 The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him– the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the LORD–
CONTRADICTIONS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT:
Book of Acts declares seventy five family members in the family of Jacob:
Seventy-Five Members in the Family of Jacob (Peace be upon him) in New Testament
Acts 7:14 After this, Joseph sent for his father Jacob and his whole family, seventy-five in all. Then Jacob went down to Egypt, where he and our ancestors died.
IN TORAH OF THE OLD TESTAMENT:
Torah says: 70 Members in the Family of Jacob (Peace be upon him):
Genesis 46:27 With the two sons who had been born to Joseph in Egypt, the members of Jacob’s family, which went to Egypt, were seventy in all.
Exodus 1:5 The descendants of Jacob numbered seventy in all; Joseph was already in Egypt.
Deuteronomy 10:22 Your ancestors who went down into Egypt were seventy in all, and now the LORD your God has made you as numerous as the stars in the sky.
If you fail to understand the realities now, then I am helpless, may Allah save you Ameen
1 Corinthians 12:11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
Comments: sorry Paul, I don’t believe all this are the work of same spirit of God. Who is suppose to be spirit of wisdom (wisdom of all Divine knowledge, see Isaiah 11:2). But I think the work of the Messenger of Satan who is took over you.as you even confessed in your books. I therefore say that you did well by admitting that the Spirit of Satan in you. Though you admitted it by justifying about to keep you away from pride, but a real follower of Christ in whom only Christ live (as you said before) does not need Satan to make him a better person. Your works (fruits) give evidence that you contradict previous prophets especially Moses and Jesus Christ. So what came out from you defiled (exposed) you.
2 Corinthians 12:7 or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me.
Or what else, the one author of epistles whom Christians largely follow, one who wrote more laws in the new Testament, find himself in a big mess, contradicting many things in the whole scriptures.
John 8:32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Hope you are understanding what I am trying to say to you
Be Patient and seek God’s support. We all need it take care. Bye for now.
New covenant in my blood means, the covenants are written in the Spirit, for blood Is the life (see the definition of blood in the Torah) and why drinking blood is forbidden. But you guys took things literally and drink blood and human flesh (wine and bread) to symbolise blood and flesh
So the truth of Christianity is based on Human perception, not defined as scriptures says. When this parable is spoken by Christ, he intent that they must live as he lived.
Yes, you may do more research, and try to justify the false ideas. Jesus said he is not the Ruler of this world. “My kingdom is not of this world”.
This are metaphorical glorification of spiritual teachers. All religions have their own way of metaphorical glorification of their Prophet or leader. Which no one is taken too literally to follow it directly
Practically The first born from the dead are those whom Jesus Christ resurrected from the graves.
You are just quoting verses, because you don’t know how to interpret it’s meaning according to the entirety of the Scriptures
And according to the Scriptures, those who born by flesh are dead. Those who born by Spirit are not dead. Jesus himself spoke, according to the Bible, whoever believe in me shall never die. So you should recognise what is the meaning of death here.
See John 11:26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
May be those who believe in Christ are higher than him? (take meaning literally as you do)
Peace be upon the Prophets, praise be to Allah Lord of All
We can see that the Advocate Who Come After Christ , his Ministry is Ministry of Conviction, not the Ministry of Reconciliation (Ministry of Gospel)!
Only Prophet of Islam fulfills this prophesies!
Quran 5:42 (They are fond of) listening to falsehood, of devouring anything forbidden. If they do come to thee, either judge between them, or decline to interfere. If thou decline, they cannot hurt thee in the least. If thou judge, judge in equity between them. For Allah loveth those who judge in equity.
Quran 5:49 And so judge (you O Muhammad SAW) between them by what Allah has revealed and follow not their vain desires, but beware of them lest they turn you (O Muhammad SAW) far away from some of that which Allah has sent down to you. And if they turn away, then know that Allah’s Will is to punish them for some sins of theirs. And truly, most of men are Fasiqun (rebellious and disobedient to Allah).
Covenant of the Advocate:Final and Eternal Covenant:
In the Name of Allah Most Merciful Most Beneficent
This article explains, the Covenant of the Advocate, which is final and Eternal Covenant and His Book is Eternal Book (Gospel), and that the covenant of Christ (of the Gospel) which is covenant of “Reconciliation” is abrogated.
Covenant of Christ (Gospel) “Reconciliation” was Abrogated by Christ Himself for Paving the Way of the Advocate:
Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) Making his departure good:
John 16:7 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you
This words have a deep meaning, Jesus Christ going away not only mean his self departure, but he is going away means, whatever came with him also going away and a New Advocate, with the new Covenant is coming to this world.
A New Covenant of “Conviction”
John 16:8-9 “And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment;about sin, because people do not believe in me;
Christ (peace be upon him) came to make “Reconciliation” , Christians agree that, the Covenant of Christ was “Reconciliation” , not “Conviction”. Rather, Christ, came to only the lost sheep of “Israel”, to convict them and reconcile them in the New Covenant. Not for whole world
Matthew 15:24 Then Jesus said to the woman, “I was sent only to help God’s lost sheep–the people of Israel.”
Christ refused to give the healing to a non-Israelite woman and said, his help is meant for only Children of Israel. So it is out of question to say Jesus came for all. But Christ even disliked to give healing to non-Jews ,according to the Bible. So forget about giving the Covenant to non-Israelites!
But the Advocate, who is coming after Christ, coming to the world world, to Convict them and to Reconcile them in the New Covenant (the Last Revelation which is given through Angel , see Revelation 14:6)
While, Bible (New Testament) was still based on the Covenant of Christ, not the Covenant of the Advocate!
John 16:10-11 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; and about judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.
Comment: John 16:10 clearly shows us that, when Christ going to heavens (not to Roman Cross to die and to set people free from Law and to make salvation on a Roman cross) Advocate bring a New path to righteousness, and because Christ going to the Father, the hope of righteousness has declined from this world (righteousness not given through death on cross). This verse clearly invalidate Christian concept of the so called Death of Jesus on Cross, to give righteousness and salvation), rather it is Advocate who will lead to righteousness and Salvation through New Way!
In John 12:25 it is said clearly: “Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going.
Christians say that, Advocate is Holy Spirit who come immediately after Christ and who will be with them forever, and will guide into all truth. But as a matter of fact, we can see that this promise did not happen with the disciples. And If we read the Gospel of John with open heart and full context. We can see that it is devil (prince of Darkness) who is going to take over!. And that period is known as “Dark age of the medieval age”. And it was not the Advocate who came then!. The blessings of Holy Spirit were given only to a few chosen disciples. And after that the Church turned into darkness and feudalism and war lords took over the Church. As a matter of truth, even since Islam came with the Last Prophet, nabi Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) the world started advancing in all fields of knowledge. From the time when Christ ascended to heavens till the advent of Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam), the world was literally dead (spiritually, socially and morally)
John 16:11 clearly tell us that, it is the Devil (Spirit of Satan) who is coming after Christ, to distort his mission and bring Darkness!. Then after a period, the Advocate emerge with Eternal Gospel (i.e Quran, see Revelation 14:6) which will preached to the Advocate as a revelation , to all people of the world) See John 16:13
John 16:12 “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear.
Christ told them everything that they should keep in their life. But did not tell them many spiritual knowledge, which is about the gnosis. Because he knew they cannot bear them that that time. And till today, Christian world did not produce any knowledge that Christ concealed them from the disciples.
This knowledges were given by Advocate (the Last Prophet)
John 16:13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
The unique nature and attribute of the Advocate, only he will guide into all the truth. Therefore, the saying: “Jesus is enough” is coming from the ego!. The other Holy Spirit was here with Christ and with many prophets before Christ (Peace be upon them all).
The Advocate Will not Speak his own. because the Advocate is Pure and have no connection with this world, the world know him not, nor understand him. He Only Receive wisdom from heavenly Sources. Not from the hand works of men, not from books or spoken knowledge!.
He Will only Speak What he hears from God Almighty, as a revelation given through another Holy Spirit (Angel Gabriel Peace be upon him). But according to Christian theology Holy Spirit himself is god, and with full glory and power. So the Holy Spirit of Christian theology does not fit in this attributes of the Advocate!
John 16:14 He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.
After Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) only Advocate has Glorified Christ. Only Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) has glorified Christ with the titles and honour God Almighty gave to Christ!. It is from the Holy spirit that Advocate Receive Wisdom. This is not speaking about Christ. Because the word of Christ is not his own words. But the Words of the One who Sent him, and the Worlds of the Holy Spirit, as it is clear that: “Holy Spirit is Speaking through Christ”. See Isaiah 42:1
See Isaiah 42:1 “Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations.
The Advocate is the Manifestation of the Light of Father (God)!. The Christian world forgot to see this truth. I asked a Charismatic pastor about this subject. he had no idea about my question. The Bible says Advocate is Father himself , we muslims say: Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) is the Manifest Light of Allah Almighty. Quran confirm this as well.
See John 8:54 Jesus replied, “If I glorify myself, my glory means nothing. My Father, whom you claim as your God, is the one who glorifies me.
Father Himself is the Advocate Who Glorify Christ, because the Spirit of Allah is in the Advocate and Advocate is the Manifest Light of Allah!. This points to the truth that, Advocate (Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam) is the Father of Jesus Christ (peace be upon him)
Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “O Aisha, don’t you know that Allah (swt) has
married me to Maryam the daughter of Imran, Kulthum, the sister of
Musa and the Wife of Pharaoh, in Paradise?”
Maryam is mother of Christ (Peace be upon them), as mary is known as the most honorable woman among all women!.Most honorable woman is married to most praise worthy man (Ahmed, Peace and Blessings be upon him).
[Abu Sheikh, narrated by Abu Umamah RA]
The Christian world, which claim to have full power of Holy Spirit ,failed to know this truth and those who came to know they refuted to surrender to this truth.
John 16:15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”
Some Christians take this verse out of Context, But Christ also says: “By Myself I can do nothing” (John 5:30).
Also there is no need to say that there is divisions between the Love Lover and beloved. God Almighty , Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) and Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him) and all Spirits of God, are one in Mission and Congregation. Like One Body! This is very clear matter, no need to get confused or troubled by making new doctrines.
John 14:10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.
John 14:20 On that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you.
John 3:2 He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know You are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs You are doing if God were not with him.”
No, where in the conversation about Advocate we can see there is a salvation plan from Christ for people by dying on a Cross. If such a plan was the ultimate good news of the Gospel, Christ would have spoken that to the disciples and they would have written it in the Gospel of John or Matthew. Rather, we see, Christ handing over this mission to the Advocate!, not to Roman cross!. And the disciples call Jesus as a “Teacher” came from God. Muslims do believe in that.
John 15:15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
All Prophets have said that God Will Send a Prophet and you must follow him , the Advocate (Last Prophet) may come and they were Ordered by God Almighty to follow the Advocate.
Christ (Peace be upon him) taught everything he knew from God, but Advocate teach everything and will remind everything and will guide into all the truth. So the verses that says, “Advocate will receive from me and will make known to you” must be taken in Spiritual meaning.
That is a Spiritual metaphorical outcry , as to be One in Mission, to receive from One Source (From God) but spiritually united in God and God is in them.It is not about division as many Prophets and Spirits of God. But as One in God’s Love and Obedience.
John 14:28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.
End of the Mission, christ says the “Father is greater than I”. Some Christians quote an earlier verse out of context and say: Jesus is God, because he said: “I and Father are One”.
John 10:30 I and the Father are one.”
Matthew 23:9 And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.
Christ also said: Do not call anyone on earth Father, so one must understand the verses in full context. not to cherry pick and interpret according to human doctrines. Christ and Father are one in this Context as defined by the scripture.
John 14:20 On that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you. (also John 14:11)
John 14:10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? The words I say to you, I do not speak on My own. Instead, it is the Father dwelling in Me, carrying out His work.
So with full context we can see that, the word Christ saying: “Advocate Will Glorify me and he will take from me, and he will glorify me, he will receive from me etc” are not Christ’s own words, but the Father who is Dwelling in Christ and Carrying out His Work
Such a great mission did not come up from disciples after Christ, it was promised only to those disciples who remained in Jerusalem. One who study the Historical facts of Church and Christianity cannot say, Holy Spirit taught everything to the disciples or Church!
Moreover, only Quran and the teachings of the Prophet of Islam (Nabi Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam) revealed everything that is yet to come, till end of Times.
Quran the Eternal Gospel of the Eternal and Final Advocate:
Revelation 14:6 Then I saw another angel flying in midheaven, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth–to every nation, tribe, language and people.
John 14:16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever–
The Eternal Gospel must be with the Eternal Advocate!, Eternal Advocate is the One who comes after Christ. There is no evidence in the Bible or in Christianity that,Christian version of Holy spirit bring a New (Eternal) Gospel and Covenant.
John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have told you.
John 15:26 When the Advocate comes, whom I will send you from the Father–the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father–He will testify about Me.
No Christians say, the New Testament books are revealed by Angels, but they believe it is inspired by God/holy Spirit.
The Spirit of Holiness and Truth (Al Sidq), is the Manifest Light of Allah, because it goes out directly from ALLAH (Al Haqq), See Quran 17:80 (see Arabic verse)
Quran 17:80 O my Lord! Let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honour, and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honour; and grant me from Thy Presence an authority to aid (me).”
New Testament is not preached in all world in the language it was actually taught by Christ or Spirit!. But Quran is read in Arabic in all nations. And Muslim call for prayer (Adhan) which is actually a summary of the entire Message of Islam, is heard by all people today!
In the entire new Testament, the authors never wrote, they received everything from the Advocate and all knowledge and wisdom had manifested!. Rather, Christian world still largely depend on the Old Testament for Wisdom and Explanation of the New Testament. The Manifest evidence is that christians still follow the covenant of Reconciliation which is brought by Christ, not the Covenant of Advocate, which is Covenant of Conviction like the covenants of Prophet Moses (Peace be upon him). We can also see that, Prophet like Moses (Deuteronomy 198:15-19) is the Advocate Who came after Christ, with the Covenant of Conviction. See John 16:8.
See John 12:48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day.
The Advocate is the Judge, who will condemn them , Advocate is the Eternal Advocate and Eternal Redeemer, and On the Day of Judgement, Advocate Judge on Behalf Allah Almighty, siting on the Throne of Praise and station of glory (Al Maqam Al Mahmood). This is also the Covenant of Condemnation (Conviction) because this is the eternal covenant from eternal Advocate by Eternal Gospel (Quran).
Christian (Bible) covenant they believe is last, is the Covenant of reconciliation, not covenant of Conviction/Condemnation. According to Christians, the Law of Moses (Peace be upon him) is the Covenant of condemnation (Conviction), and therefore, the Covenant of Advocate is the Covenant of Conviction, so we can see that Quran is the Final Revelation and Laws and the Eternal Gospel came with the Advocate. And The Prophet Like Moses (Deuteronomy 18:15-18) only to be fulfilled in Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam)
THE ADVOCATE OF JOB (PEACE BE UPON HIM) AND ALL PROPHETS, THE LEADER OF ALL PROPHETS:
Job 16:19 Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high.
Job 19:25 “As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, And at the last He will take His stand on the earth.
Psalm 89:37 “It shall be established forever like the moon, And the witness in the sky is faithful.” Selah.
The Redeemer who lives is the Eternal Redeemer , Spirit of Holiness (see Aramaic Bible in Plain English John 16:7-8 from the Biblehub.com) and he will take his stand on earth ont the day of Judgement to Judge All. While Christ will come as a Rule and Judge as a King in the Throne of David (alaihissalam) for forty years! (For a Period)
The Witness in the Heavens (Sky) is Advocate, as Job (alaihissalam) also clarifies what is coming at the end. That is Advocate Will do the Advocacy with God even the Eternity . See John’s Gospel.
John 14:16 Aramaic Bible in Plain English
“And I shall request from my Father and he will give you another Redeemer of the accursed, that he will be with you for eternity.”
The truth clearly stands out from error! and whoever want to follow truth, which we have revealed here, they may follow. My duty is only to convey the Message and to distinguish (separate) truth from falsehood.
This explanation itself is enough for those who seek truth, and do some efforts. The Path to God is Narrow, don’t expect me to speak everything in ABCD . No prophets speaking everything to common man!. Ask Questions if you have any. Send Questions by using this contact page in this website.
Peace be upon all the Prophets of Allah
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.
