John 16- The Holy Spirit Part 2

But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. 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. John 16:5-7

Again we see Jesus foretelling about the coming of the Holy Spirit. And again we see the same word in Greek “Parakletos” to describe the Holy Spirit , meaning Counselor, Advocate, Helper, and Comforter. English just doesn’t do the Holy Spirit justice in trying to describe him, as he is very complex and fulfills many roles

As Jesus says “Sorrow has filled our hearts” when Christ left to ascend into Heaven. Everyday we wait for the Lord is difficult , however Jesus needed to go so the Holy Spirit could come!

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. John 16:8-11

Here we see another role for the Holy Spirit, the convictor of Sin! What drives a person to repent of their sin? Its the Holy Spirit, if you ever question if the Holy Spirit is inside of you, if you repented of your sin with Godly Sorrow, the Holy Spirit is within you!

The prince of this world is judged, who is that? Its Satan, he is judged and will be thrown in the Lake of Fire at the final judgement day! The victory is ours in Jesus Christ!

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. John 16:12-14

The Holy Spirit is also The Spirit of Truth! The Holy Spirit will guide you in all truth, there is much deception in this world , be led by the Spirit of Truth, don’t be misled by sinful humans

Another important job of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Christ! The Holy Spirit will lead you to Christ and teach you his ways. Without the Holy Spirit there is no true conviction of sin, without the Holy Spirit there is no baptism of Fire

The Spirit of Truth will lead you to Jesus, the Holy Spirit will lead you in truth, The Holy Spirit will lead you to true repentance , Come Holy Spirit! Amen!
