16 I will ask the Father, and he will give you another comforter [helper], so that he may remain with you forever2 —
17 [Who is] the Spirit of truth, which the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him, nor knows him. But you know him because he dwells with you [now], and shall be in you [soon]. [Regarding, the Spirit of truth, which the world cannot receive: The light shines in the darkness; and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:5. For everyone who does evil deeds (sins) hates the light (so hates Christ, who is the light) and does not come to the light for fear his deeds will be exposed and reproved. John 3:20.]
18 I will not leave you comfortless like orphans; I will come to you.
26 But when the Comforter comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, he shall testify of me.
13 However when the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth.3 For he shall not speak of himself, but he shall only speak what he hears; and he will show you things to come. [From the word of the Lord within: "Truly, I say to you, all the truth is magnificent; you will marvel when you see it. There are those who profess to know truth, only having knowledge of the Bible. It is no value to me to know truths and not know the Lord. Do you know him or just pretend to know him; to know him is to have met him and listened to him. Seek the meeting. To be in Jesus is to be in truth."]
14 He shall glorify me; for he shall take from me what is mine, and shall show it to you.
|2 Corinthians 1:21-22|
21 Now he who establishes us with you in Christ, and who has anointed us, is God; [If you are sealed with the Holy Spirit, and if you are in Christ, then you have experienced the anointing, which is Christ to guide all your thoughts, words, and works. From the Word of the Lord within: "I choose whom to anoint; your response to my commands dictates my choice."]
22 Who has also sealed us, and given us the earnest3 of the Spirit in our hearts.
12 Therefore brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
13 For if you live according to the flesh [the sinful nature], you will die; but if through the Spirit you mortify [put to death] the deeds of the body, you will live.4 [Therefore mortify [put to death] the deeds of the body which are of the earthly life; fornication, impurity, inordinate affections, evil lusts of the flesh, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Col 3:5. Strip yourselves of your former nature that controlled your conduct, which corrupts itself through lusts and desires that spring from delusion. Eph 4:22]
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. [To be led by the Spirit of God is to hear and obey his word from within your heart ordering all words to be spoken and all your deeds to be done. To be led is to walk in love, fulfilling the law. This only occurs after you have crucified your sinful nature on the inward cross of self-denial to then receive the fruit of the Spirit. If you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Gal 5:19. From the Word of the Lord within: "You are a son when Jesus appears in your heart to guide you. A perfect man hears what to do — a time of great joy."]
15 For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, by which we cry, Abba, Father.
|2 Corinthians 5:5|
5 Now he who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given to us the earnest [down payment] of the Spirit.1
|Galatians 4:6 |
6 And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, "Abba, Father."1
