The Work of the Holy Spirit

John 16

4 "But these things I have told you, that when 1 the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I did not say to you at the beginning, because I was with you. 5 "But now I e go away to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, 'Where are You going?' 6 "But because I have said these things to you, f sorrow has filled your heart. 7 "Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but g if I depart, I will send Him to you. 8 "And when He has h come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 i "of sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 j "of righteousness, k because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; 11 l "of judgment, because m the ruler of this world is judged.

12 "I still have many things to say to you, n but you cannot bear them now. 13 "However, when He, o the Spirit of truth, has come, p He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 q "He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 r "All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He 2 will take of Mine and declare it to you.
