John 15:26-16:4 English Standard Version (ESV)


26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me. 27 And you also will bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning.

16 “I have said all these things to you to keep you from falling away. 2 They will put you out of the synagogues. Indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. 3 And they will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me. 4 But I have said these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember that I told them to you."


The Helper = The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth -  will be with you forever. and will dwell WITH you and IN you.


The Helper Will:

1. Teach you

2. Bring to remembrance all that He has said (This is why we read, pray, and memorize scripture.)

3. Bear witness, testify


The Holy Spirit works hand-in-hand in Gospel Proclamation.

When what Jesus tells us is going to happen, happens; it strengthens our Faith.
