The Holy Spirit [ The Comforter ] [1]


*proceeds from the Father—John 15:24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. 25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

*GIVEN:

  • by the Father —John 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
  • by Christ—Isaiah.61: The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me;
    because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek;
    he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim liberty to the captives,
    and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
    to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
    and the day of vengeance of our God;
    to comfort all that mourn;
    to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion,
    to give unto them beauty for ashes,
    the oil of joy for mourning,
    the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
    that they might be called trees of righteousness,
    the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
  • through Christ’s intercession—John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
