  1. If you want, of course, you can find prophecies about Muhammad in the Bible, but the conventional interpretation of the verses of the New Testament that you have quoted, as you have both read and heard , is the promise of the presence of St. John the Baptist. Of the Holy Spirit after the bodily ascension of Christ. The interpretation of this text that you give (that we are talking about Muhammad) is refuted both by the general meaning of the Gospels (everything, there is no need for any prophets at all, God himself came to earth, became a man and sacrificed himself for all mankind), and, in general, by the lack of understanding of the appearance of any human messenger from God afterwards. Really, why do we need a man who is a prophet, if God himself is with us to the end of the world, amen.

  2. John 14: 16, the helper is the Holy Spirit. The active power of God that he gives to his servants. This is a force that exceeds normal strength. That's what the Bible says.

  3. If you take the Bible as a testimony to your ideas, then take it not selectively, but in its entirety. A word taken out of context is not the word of God, the Word of Truth, but is at best a distortion, at worst the word of the devil:

    5 Then the devil took him into the holy city, and set him on the wing of the temple,
    6 And said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down; for it is written,' He will command his angels concerning you, and they will carry You up in their hands, so that you will not stumble with your foot on a stone.'
    7 And Joshua said unto him, It is also written, Thou shalt not tempt the LORD thy God.
    (Matthew 4: 5-7)

    So, what does the Scripture say about the sons of Ishmael?

    15 And God said to Abraham, ” You shall not call Sarai your wife Sarai, but let her name be Sarah.
    16 I will bless her and give you a son by her;I will bless her, and nations will come out of her, and kings of nations will come out of her.”
    17 And Abraham fell on his face, and laughed, and said within himself, Shall a son be born to one who is a hundred years old? And will Sarah, who is ninety years old, give birth?
    18 And Abraham said to God, ” May Ishmael live before you!
    19 And God said, It is Sarah thy wife that shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant with his seed after him.
    20 And I have heard you concerning Ishmael: Behold, I will bless him, and make him fruitful, and multiply him exceedingly, exceedingly; twelve princes will be born of him; and I will make of him a great nation.
    21 But I will establish my covenant with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear you at this time in the next year.

    22 And God left off speaking to Abraham, and went up from him.
    (Genesis 17: 15-22)

    God needs Isaac, Ishmael is more of a human” project ” than a Divine one, although because he is a child of Abraham, a friend of God, God has blessed this people..But He said He wouldn't make a covenant with Him. And a Covenant means a close bilateral relationship.�

    1 But Sarai, Abram's wife, bore him no children. She had an Egyptian maidservant named Hagar.
    2 And Sarai said to Abram, ” Behold, the LORD has shut up my womb that I should not bear children. Abram listened to Sarai's words.
    3 And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her Egyptian maidservant, after Abram had lived ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to Abram her husband to wife.
    4 And he went in to Hagar, and she conceived.
    (Gen. 16: 1-4)

    11 And again the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael: for the LORD hath heard thy affliction.
    12 He shall be as a wild ass among men;his hands shall be upon all, and all hands upon him; he shall dwell before all his brethren.
    13 And Hagar called the name of the LORD who spoke to her by this name, ” You are the God who sees me.” For she said, ” It is as if I have seen here in the footsteps of him who sees me.”
    (Gen. 16: 11-13)

    All the major promises relate to Israel – this is Its firstborn, this is Its people, this is Its Wife and Bride. And if I were to write about it in detail, I think that the world itself would not contain the books written. Amen.
