THE WAY (PT 11)
YOUR EVER-PRESENT HELPER ON THE WAY
A very definite promise of the Master ~ Lord Yahshua Messiah (Christ) is that He would give His people the Holy Spirit: “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, to be with you forever - the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him
But you know Him because He lives with you and will be in you.” (John 14:16-17) “When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of Truth, who proceeds from the Father, He will bear witness of Me.” (John 15:26) “… it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you … But when He comes, the Spirit of Truth, He will guide you into all the truth …” (John 16:7, 13) The Master is referring to the Holy Spirit, who is also known as the Comforter, or Helper
In Greek He is the “Paracletos,” which means, “one called alongside to help.” As you read the Bible, you will find quite a lot of teaching about the Holy Spirit and His work
Sometimes He is referred to as the Holy Ghost
But “Ghost” is an old English word that has changed its meaning
“Spirit” is a much better modern translation
The Master Yahshua Messiah (Christ) says that the Holy Spirit will be our Helper always, and that He will live in us
It is important then, that we understand clearly who the Holy Spirit is, and what He does in our lives.
