JOHN 14:15-31- IF YOU LOVE ME, YOU WILL KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.  AND I WILL ASK THE FATHER, AND HE WILL GIVE YOU ANOTHER HELPER, TO BE WITH YOU FOREVER, EVEN THE HOLY SPIRIT OF TRUTH, WHOM THE WORLD CANNOT RECEIVE, BECAUSE IT NEITHER SEES HIM NOR KNOWS HIM.  YOU KNOW HIM, FOR HE DWELLS WITH YOU AND WILL BE IN YOU.  I WILL NOT LEAVE YOU AS ORPHANS; I WILL COME TO YOU.  YET A LITTLE WHILE AND THE WORLD WILL SEE ME NO MORE, BUT YOU WILL SEE ME.  BECAUSE I LIVE, YOU ALSO WILL LIVE.  IN THAT DAY YOU WILL KNOW THAT I AM IN MY FATHER, AND YOU IN ME, AND I IN YOU.  WHOEVER HAS MY COMMANDMENTS AND KEEPS THEM, HE IT IS WHO LOVES ME.  AND HE WHO LOVES ME WILL BE LOVED BY MY FATHER, AND I WILL LOVE HIM AND MANIFEST MYSELF TO HIM.  JUDAS (NOT ISCARIOT) SAID TO HIM, LORD, HOW IS IT THAT YOU WILL MANIFEST YOURSELF TO US, AND NOT TO THE WORLD?  JESUS ANSWERED HIM, IF ANYONE LOVES ME, THEY WILL KEEP MY WORD, AND MY FATHER WILL LOVE THEM, AND WE WILL COME TO THEM AND MAKE OUR HOME WITH THEM.  WHOEVER DOES NOT LOVE ME DOES NOT KEEP MY WORDS.  AND THE WORD THAT YOU HEAR IS NOT MINE BUT THE FATHER’S WHO SENT ME.  THESE THINGS I HAVE SPOKEN TO YOU WHILE I AM STILL WITH YOU.  BUT THE HELPER, THE HOLY SPIRIT WHOM THE FATHER WILL SEND IN MY NAME, HE WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS AND BRING TO YOUR REMEMBRANCE ALL THAT I HAVE SAID TO YOU.  PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU; MY PEACE I GIVE TO YOU.  NOT AS THE WORLD GIVES DO I GIVE TO YOU.  LET NOT YOUR HEARTS BE TROUBLED, NEITHER LET THEM BE AFRAID.  YOU HEARD ME SAY TO YOU, I AM GOING AWAY, AND I WILL COME TO YOU,  IF YOU LOVE ME, YOU WOULD HAVE REJOICED, BECAUSE I AM GOING TO THE FATHER, FOR THE FATHER IS GREATER THAN I.  AND NOW I HAVE TOLD YOU BEFORE IT TAKES PLACE, SO THAT WHEN IT DOES TAKE PLACE YOU MAY BELIEVE.  I WILL NO LONGER TALK MUCH WITH YOU, FOR THE RULER OF THIS WORLD IS COMING.  HE HAS NO CLAIM ON ME, BUT I DO AS THE FATHER HAS COMMANDED ME, SO THAT THE WORLD MAY KNOW THAT I LOVE THE FATHER.  RISE, LET US GO FROM HERE. 

 

JOHN 16:4-15- I DID NOT SAY THESE THINGS TO YOU FROM THE BEGINNING, BECAUSE I WAS WITH YOU.  BUT NOW I AM GOING TO HIM WHO SENT ME, AND NONE OF YOU ASKS ME, WHERE ARE YOU GOING?  BUT BECAUSE I HAVE SAID THESE THINGS TO YOU, SORROW HAS FILLED YOUR HEARTS.  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 IF I GO, I WILL SEND HIM TO YOU.  AND WHEN HE COMES, HE WILL CONVICT THE WORLD CONCERNING SIN AND RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUDGMENT: CONCERNING SIN, BECAUSE THEY DO NOT BELIEVE IN ME; CONCERNING RIGHTEOUSNESS, BECAUSE I GO TO THE FATHER, AND YOU WILL SEE ME NO LONGER; CONCERNING JUDGMENT, BECAUSE THE RULER OF THIS WORLD IS JUDGED.  I STILL HAVE MANY THINGS TO SAY TO YOU, BUT YOU CANNOT BEAR THEM NOW.  WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT OF TRUTH COMES, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL THE TRUTH, FOR HE WILL NOT SPEAK ON HIS OWN AUTHORITY, BUT WHATEVER HE HEARS HE WILL SPEAK, AND HE WILL DECLARE TO YOU THE THINGS THAT ARE TO COME.  HE WILL GLORIFY ME, FOR HE WILL TAKE WHAT IS MINE AND DECLARE IT TO YOU.  ALL THAT THE FATHER HAS IS MINE; THEREFORE I SAID THAT HE WILL TAKE WHAT IS MINE AND DECLARE IT TO YOU. 

 

ACTS 2:17-21- AND IN THE LAST DAYS IT SHALL BE, GOD DECLARES, THAT I WILL POUR OUT MY HOLY SPIRIT ON ALL FLESH, AND YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS, AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS; EVEN ON MY MALE AND FEMALE SERVANTS IN THOSE DAYS I WILL POUR OUT MY HOLY SPIRIT, AND THEY SHALL PROPHESY.  AND I WILL SHOW WONDERS IN THE HEAVEN ABOVE AND SIGNS ON THE EARTH BELOW, BLOOD, AND FIRE, AND VAPOR OF SMOKE; THE SUN SHALL BE TURNED TO DARKNESS AND THE MOON TO BLOOD, BEFORE THE DAY OF THE LORD COMES, THE GREAT AND MAGNIFICENT DAY.  AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS THAT EVERYONE WHO CALLS UPON THE  NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.  

 

ROMANS 8:1-11- THERE IS THEREFORE NOW NO CONDEMNATION FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.  FOR THE LAW OF THE HOLY SPIRIT OF LIFE HAS SET YOU FREE IN CHRIST JESUS FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.  FOR GOD HAS DONE WHAT THE LAW, WEAKENED BY THE FLESH, COULD NOT DO.  BY SENDING HIS OWN SON IN THE LIKENESS OF SINFUL FLESH AND FOR SIN, HE CONDEMNED SIN IN THE FLESH, IN ORDER THE THE RIGHTEOUS REQUIREMENT OF THE LAW MIGHT BE FULFILLED IN US, WHO WALK NOT ACCORDING TO THE FLESH BUT ACCORDING TO THE HOLY SPIRIT.  FOR THOSE WHO LIVE ACCORDING TO THE FLESH SET THEIR MINDS ON THE THINGS OF THE FLESH, BUT THOSE WHO LIVE ACCORDING TO THE HOLY SPIRIT SET THEIR ON THE THINGS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.   FOR TO SET THE MIND ON THE FLESH IS DEATH, BUT TO SET THE MIND ON THE HOLY SPIRIT IS LIFE AND PEACE.  FOR THE THAT IS SET ON THE FLESH IS HOSTILE TO GOD, FOR IT DOES NOT SUBMIT TO GOD’S LAW; INDEED, IT CANNOT.  THOSE WHO ARE IN THE FLESH CANNOT PLEASE GOD.  YOU HOWEVER, ARE NOT IN THE FLESH BUT IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, IF IN FACT THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD DWELLS IN YOU.  ANYONE WHO DOES NOT HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT OF CHRIST DOES NOT BELONG TO HIM.  BUT IF CHRIST IS IN YOU, ALTHOUGH THE BODY IS DEAD BECAUSE OF SIN, THE HOLY SPIRIT IS LIFE BECAUSE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.  IF THE HOLY SPIRIT OF HIM WHO RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD DWELLS IN YOU, HE WHO RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD WILL ALSO GIVE LIFE TO YOUR MORTAL BODIES THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO DWELLS IN YOU.
