No difference between God Almighty sending the Comforter or Spirit (Ruh) to explain the Great News of the Resurrection (Al-Qiyamah)!
To all bearing witness to the Resurrection,
Namaste - i bow to the Holy Spirit who resides in you!
There is no difference between God Almighty sending the Comforter or His Spirit (Ruh) to collect, promulgate, recite and explain the verses of the Bible and Quran concerning the Great News of the Resurrection (Al-Qiyamah). The Spirit of God, Shri Mataji, declares exactly the same Great News of both the Bible and Qur'n - Al-Qiyamah (The Resurrection)! She also isssues the same Warning of both the Bible and Qur'n, and the consequences of rejecting this Great Message! There is absolutely no difference between the Bible and Qur'n regarding the Resurrection. Its universal annoucement and commencement (Al Qadr, The Night of Power) is for all the Believers of God Almighty to surrender to His Will and enter His eternal Kingdom, prior to the exhaustion of His Mercy and End (Al Qariah, The Day of Noise and Clamour).
Primary function of the Comforter is to make men holy
"Jesus solemnly assures the disciples that they will, in the future, perform even greater miracles than He. By this He means to say that through the power of the Holy Spirit, they will bring about the greatest miracle of all—the salvation of lost souls. He promises them that whatever they ask for, in connection with their ministry of bringing the miracle of salvation to lost men, will be granted them.
The theme of this section is reassurance and encouragement. Jesus gives the disciples three basic reasons they should cease being troubled in their spirits. First, He tells them that, although He is going away, He will return for them so that they may ultimately join Him where He is going (vv. 1-3). Second, He tells them that, though He is going away, He will be the only means by which men may come to God and go to Heaven (vv. 4-11). Third, He tells them that, though He is going away, their ministries are not finished. In fact, the best is still ahead. They are going, by the Holy Spirit's power, to be part of the greatest miracle of all, bringing men to salvation (vv. 12-14)."...
25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have told unto you.
Jesus now summarizes all that He has been saying in this section. Referring to the many things which He has taught them while He has been present with them in the flesh, He tell the disciples that the Comforter not only is going to remind them of these things, but also will go to teach them all things necessary to their understanding and happiness. The Comforter will recall to their minds Jesus' teachings, will enable them to understand truly and completely, and will develop and expand them into new and wonderful truths.
Jesus has referred to the coming Comforter as the Spirit of Truth (v. 17)...[whose] primary function is the work of making men holy. This is the work we call sanctification.
In v. 16 Jesus has said that the Comforter is going to be provided to the disciples by the Father on the basis of His (Jesus') prayer that He should do so. Now He says that the Father is going to send the Comforter in His (Christ's) name. These statements are essentially identical and imply a joint action involving both Father and Son."

Advocate, (Gr. parakletos), one who pleads another's cause, who helps another by defending or comforting him. It is a name given by Christ three times to the Holy Ghost (John 14:16; 15:26; 16:7, where the Greek word is rendered"Comforter," q.v.).
Comforter, the designation of the Holy Ghost (John 14:16, 26; 15:26; 16:7; R.V. marg.," or Advocate, or Helper; Gr. paracletos"). The same Greek word thus rendered is translated"Advocate"In 1 John 2:1 as applicable to the Comforter to be sent by Christ. It means properly"one who is summoned to the side of another"to help him in a court of justice by defending him," one who is summoned to plead a cause."
Night of Power is better than a thousands months
surah 97:1-5 Al-Qadr (Night of Power)1. We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power:
2. And what will explain to thee what the night of power is?
3. The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.
4. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah's permission, on every errand:
5. Peace!...This until the rise of morn!
surah 97:1-5 Al-Qadr (Night of Power)
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n, Amana Corporation, 1989.
"The present Night of Power is better than a thousands months. But what are the thousand months and why is the Night of Power better? These are questions that the ulema cannot answer correctly and what will explain to them what the Night of Power is? The thousand months is an entire life (80 years 4 months to be precise) spent in prayer, pious deeds, fasting during Ramadan, and remembering God at all times. But Al Qadr (The Night of Power) is better than an entire life of righteous living because it empowers you to resurrect yourself into the eternal spirit during Al-Qiyamah."
Move not thy tongue with this Revelation of Surah Al-Qiyamah!
16. Move not thy tongue concerning the (Resurrection), to make haste therewith.
17. It is for Us to collect it and to promulgate it:
18. But when We have promulgated it, follow thou its recital:
19. Nay more, it is for Us to explain it:
For centuries hundreds and thousands of scholars first molested, then raped, and finally mutilated the revelation of Al-Qiyamah beyond recognition, before leaving it pregnant with distortion, delusion and deceit. Even scores of scholars working with Abdullah Yusuf Ali took part in this orgy despite the clearest of Allah's injunctions. Iblis, you kept your promise to mislead humans till the Day of Resurrection. In order to substantiate this extremely serious allegation it has to be first understood that the word"Qur'n"Is interpolated. To interpolate means (a) to alter or corrupt (as a text) by inserting new or foreign matter (b) to insert words into a text or into a conversation. The word"Qur'n"Is in brackets as the interpreters have conveniently interpolated it to substitute for a missing word. So what is that missing word that has been substituted? It can be no other than"Resurrection"As the entire surah 75 deals only with the Great Event ordained for all humanity. Let Allah be my witness that this message has been conveyed. May the ulema never ever defile this Truth again!
