Paraclete is Muhammad mentioned in John
John 14:16 “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever”
John 15:26 “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me”
John 14:26 “But the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”
John 16:7-14 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew [it] unto you.”
A “Spirit” in the New Testament is a human Prophet.
Therefore, Jesus had predicted the comming of a human Prophet (spirit) after him and not the Holy Spirit. Jesus would not have used the word “he” for the Holy Spirit. He would have used “it” instead in John 14:26 above.
Read 1 John 4:1-3 below:
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world,”
Christian scholars see evidence of tampering, especailly with the word “Spirit”:
In the famous “Anchor Bible” we find the following quote:
“The word parakletos is peculiar in the NT to the Johnannine literature. In John ii Jesus is a parakletos (not a title), serving as a heavenly intercessor with the Father … Christian tradition has identified this figure (Paraclete) as the Holy Spirit, but scholars like Spitta, Delafosse, Windisch, Sasse, Bultmann, and Betz have doubted whether this identification is true to the original picture and have suggested that the Paraclete was once an independent salvific figure, later confused with the Holy Spirit.”
(The Anchor Bible, Doubleday & Company, Inc, Garden City, N.Y. 1970, Volume 29A, p. 1135)
The Holy Ghost was already with them:
In the above verses we read “if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” The comforter can not be the Holy Ghost because the Holy Ghost (according to the Bible) was “with” them already (and even quite active) long before the coming of Jesus (peace be upon him) himself and then throughout his ministry.
“He” not “It”:
Notice the use of “he” when referring to the Paraclete and not “it.” If we read John 16:13, we will find no less than SEVEN occurrences of the masculine pronoun “He” and “Himself.” There is not another verse in the 66 books of the Protestant Bible or the seventy three books of the Catholic Bible which contains seven masculine pronouns, or seven feminine pronouns, or even seven neuter genders. So many masculine pronouns ill befits a ghost, holy or otherwise. The word “Spirit” (Greek, pneu’ma), is of a neutral gender and is always referred to by the pronoun “it.”
That he may abide with you for ever:
In these verses, Jesus (peace be upon him) is quoted as saying that the coming Paraclete will “abide with you forever.” What does he mean by this? In order to understand this statement, let us read,
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death. Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself? Jesus answered, If I honor myself, my honor is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God: Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.”
“And I (Jesus) give unto them (the believers) eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” (John 10:28)
and “and my servant David [shall be] their prince forever.” (Ezekiel 37:25).
and “The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD … He asked life of thee, [and] thou gavest [it] him, [even] length of days for ever and ever.” (Psalm 21:1-4)
Jesus (peace be upon him) is quoted many times in the Bible as telling his followers that they will never taste death. However, there is not a single one of them alive to this day. Was he lying? Of course not! As seen above, Jesus’ (peace be upon him) was not telling mankind that his followers would never grow old nor die, rather he was speaking about their second life in the hereafter. He was telling them that the life that we hold so dear and spend so much time fretting over and striving to improve is all but insignificant if compared to the true life, the afterlife. So much so that life and death on this earth is unworthy of consideration. Everything in his estimation revolved around an eternal striving for the reward of the afterlife and this was the yardstick by which all matters were to be measured.
In a similar manner, when king David is described as being a prince forever, this did not mean that he would never die but remain immortal for ever and ever as a prince to Israel. Rather, his teachings, name, and guidance shall remain as a shining beacon to mankind even after his death. In this manner, Jesus (peace be upon him) lives among us through his faith and teachings, prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) lives on among them and us through his faith and teachings, and so too, the coming Paraclete will live eternally with us through his faith and teachings.
Very important: The Paracletos will be the last prophet, because he will “abide with you forever” and “he will guide you into all truth” (Greek “into the whole truth”) and “he shall teach you all things,” so there will be no need for any further prophets.
He shall not speak of himself:
“For he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak:” This too is an interesting statement. It reminds us of the verses of Deuteronomy 18:18-19 which shall be discussed soon, specifically:
” I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require [it] of him.” (Deuteronomy 18:18-19)
It is also interesting to read the words of the Qur’an:
“Nor does he (Muhammad) speak of his own desire. It is but an Inspiration that is inspired [unto him]”
(The noble Qur’an, Al-Najm 53:3-4)
Follow me as we trace the Biblical history of this Greek word “Paraclete”. Startling as it may seem, at one time the word read “Periklytos” and “Paraklytos”, which is the name for “Muhammad” in Greek. Surprising? It should not be because both words mean “Praised” or “Celebrate,” the meaning and character of the man “Muhammad.” (1 Jesus in The Qur’an, One World Publications, (c) Geoffrey Parrinder 1965, 1995, ISBN 1-85168-094-2). Knowing this, there is a need for us to study the life of Prophet Muhammad in depth to see if it all stands up. Surprisingly it does.

Jesus said to the Jews: “Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
(From the KJV Bible, Matthew 21:43)”
The kingdom has been taken away from the Jews and given to the Arabs.
