Listen to this audio recording, based on the Word of GOD, now!
2 And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him—
Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, whom I will send to you
from the Father, that is the Spirit of Truth who comes from the Father,
He will testify and bear witness about Me.
7 But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away;
for if I do not go away, the [a]Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—
Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you;
but if I go, I will send Him (the Holy Spirit) to you [to be in close fellowship with you].8 And He, when He comes, will convict the world about [the guilt of] sin
[and the need for a Savior], and about righteousness, and about judgment:9 about sin [and the true nature of it], because they do not believe in Me [and My message];
10 about righteousness [personal integrity and godly character],
because I am going to My Father and you will no longer see Me;
11 about judgment [the certainty of it], because the ruler of this world (Satan)
has been judged and condemned.
13 In Him, you also, when you heard the word of truth,
the good news of your salvation, and [as a result] believed in Him,
were stamped with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit [the One promised by Christ]
as owned and protected [by God].14 The Spirit is the [a]guarantee [the first installment, the pledge, a foretaste]
of our inheritance until the redemption of God’s own [purchased] possession
[His believers], to the praise of His glory.==============================
13 But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth
[full and complete truth]. For He will not speak on His own initiative,
but He will speak whatever He hears [from the Father—
the message regarding the Son], and
He will disclose to you what is to come [in the future].
14 But the natural [unbelieving] man does not accept the things
[the teachings and revelations] of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness
[absurd and illogical] to him; and he is incapable of understanding them,
because they are spiritually discerned and appreciated,
[and he is unqualified to judge spiritual matters].
9 However, you are not [living] in the flesh [controlled by the sinful nature]
but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God lives in you [directing and guiding you].
But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him
[and is not a child of God].10 If Christ lives in you, though your [natural]
body is dead because of sin, your spirit is alive because of righteousness
[which He provides].11 And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead
lives in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life
to your mortal bodies through His Spirit, who lives in you.
