Parakletos

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. John 14:26

The original Greek “Parakletos” meaning the Helper, the Advocate, the Intercessor,  the Counselor , the Comforter, The Holy Spirit has been sent to dwell in us and teach us ALL things.

Notice how the Father, Son , and Holy Spirit are all in unison here

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. John 14:26

Whenever you’re trying to discuss the Bible with somebody who is not “Born Again”, they struggle to understand what you’re talking about.  Why? Because they don’t have the Holy Spirit to teach them, to intercess for them, to Counsel them. Am I saying that Christians never have trouble understanding scripture? No , I continually wrestle with scripture on a daily basis, however unsaved people cant even grasp the basic concepts of God without the Holy Spirit

The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit 1 Corinthians 2:14

A person living for the flesh, cant understand spiritual things. This is why Apologetics is an effective way of Evangelism. Because witnessing to unsaved people will just sound like foolishness to them. However we should make it a point for all conversations to lead to the gospel. Its only by the gospel of Jesus Christ that any of us can be saved

Allow the Holy Spirit to teach you, to guide you, to comfort you, to advocate for you in Jesus Name Amen!
