John 16:7-15 Advocate was coming after Christ with another distinctive 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!
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.”
CONTRADICTIONS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT:
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
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 WAY OF JESUS CHRIST IS NOT FOR ALL NATIONS:
Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
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.
