John 14:15-31 - Jesus Promises The Holy Spirit
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, 16 and He will give you another comforter to abide with you for ever: 17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him, because He abideth with you, and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world shall see me no more; but ye shall see me: and because I live, ye shall live also. 20 Then ye shall know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. 21 He that hath my commandments and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest my self to him.
22 Judas (not the Iscariot) saith unto Him, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thy self to us, and not to the world?
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If any one love me, he will observe my word: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and will make our abode with him. 24 He that doth not love me, doth not observe my words: and yet the word that ye hear, is not mine, but the Father's who hath sent me.
25 These things have I spoken unto you, while I have been with you. 26 But the comforter, that is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said unto you.
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, do I give unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28 Ye have heard, how I said unto you, "I am going away, and I shall come again to you." If ye loved me, ye would rejoice that I said, I am going to the Father: for my Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that when it cometh to pass ye may believe. 30 I shall not have much more conversation with you: for the prince of this world is coming; not that he hath any thing in me, 31 but that the world may know that I love the Father, and that I do as the Father hath commanded me. Arise, let us go hence.
