Some Muslims try trick Christians by saying the Comforter promised by Jesus in John 14:16 was referring to Muhammad. Just to inform everyone that this is absolutely FALSE and how to refute it.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you FOR EVER;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
Here is the simple facts that make it obvious the Comforter was NOT Muhammad.
- Jesus said in his statement that the Comforter would abide with his disciples forever. Muhammad is dead & buried in Mecca to this day and can't abide anyone FOREVER.
- Jesus told his disciples to wait in Jerusalem for the Comforter. If it was Muhammad 500 yrs later they'd all be dead and the Comforter is useless.
4 On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.
5 For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”
3. Jesus actually state who the Comforter is a few sentences later:
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost,whom the Father will send in my name,
And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. HAVING BELIEVED, you were marked in him with A SEAL, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.
Muhammad was never mentioned in the Bible. Not even remotely. The Comforter was identified by Jesus as the HOLY SPIRIT.
