“But 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.” John 16:7.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

Do you know how to get the answers you are seeking? It is very simple. Ask Me. When you call on Me, I answer you and tell you great and mighty things you could not know. Jeremiah 33:3. I am present as your Helper. Jesus gave you the Helper to be with you and in you forever.

Jesus told the astonished disciples that it was better for them that He came back to Me and they would see Him no more, at least not in the same physical way they had become accustomed to for the three years they walked with Him. They were sad, to whom would they go to get all their answers now? While Jesus was with them in a physical way, the minute a storm, a need, a challenge came, they ran to Him and He showed them the Way to Me for mighty works of power in every situation. He made it all so practical and easy to have the answer the minute the challenge came. And then He told them it would be better for them that He left and returned to Me. But He told them why. “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 heart. But 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.” John 16:5-7.

Jesus had to go, He had to die in your place, receiving the condemnation that would justly have fallen on you so that now there is no condemnation for those who receive Him as Lord. And why was this worth Jesus dying to give you the Helper? Jesus came to give you this gift, He called it “the promise of the Father.” He had to remove your sins, bear your pains and illnesses, and set you free from the law of sin and death so that you could be born again and get a new heart that could receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. And Peter said the same on the day of the fulfillment of Pentecost: “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself.” Acts 2:38-39.

Why is this gift so awesome? So amazing? So wonderful that Jesus was willing to die to give this Gift to you? It is the gift of God in you! When you join with Jesus you become a temple of the Holy Spirit, a house of God and a gate of Heaven into the earth. The Holy Spirit is My Spirit, just as Jesus is My Son, and they are ONE with Me and one another. We are One and the same but we come to you in three different ways, but it is Me in each one. I was in Christ reconciling you to Myself, not counting your sins and trespasses against you. And I am in the Holy Spirit guiding, teaching, directing, leading, helping, counseling, advising, speaking, and sharing with you all things, even the deepest thoughts in the very center of My being. He is My voice and My Power. All Scripture is Spirit breathed; God breathed. It is impossible to talk without breath. And the word “Spirit” in the Hebrew it was first written in, is Ruach, which you also see translated as “breath,” “wind,” and “spirit” interchangeably.

The eternal Spirit. My Spirit. My very core. The issuance out of My power and My breath. When you are filled with My Spirit, you are filled with My very essence. It is then you begin to know all things and the revelation just keeps growing and opening the eyes of your heart to vaster and vaster vistas through time and eternity if you will just receive. I give the Holy Spirit to those who speak My Words without measure. John 3:34.

Jesus told His disciples of this on-going revelation that would not stop when He no longer was physically with them as He had been as their teacher and commander in chief for three years, “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.” John 16:12-15. You have the Holy Spirit in you now, that is, if you are born again by receiving Jesus as your Lord and believing in your heart I raised Him from the dead (justifying you), and He will guide you to ALL truth if you will listen to Him and receive His guidance. And He will reveal to you things to come. He will warn you and keep you safe from harm. And He will have you in the right place at the right time for the salvation of one who needs it.

And Jesus told His disciples that the Holy Spirit would help them to witness about Him to others. In fact, after I raised Him from the dead, Jesus warned His disciples not to go out to preach to the world until they had received the promised Holy Spirit, the baptism from on High that would clothe them in power and give them words and a wisdom no one could take exception to or contradict. He told them, “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 testify about Me, and you will testify also, because you have been with Me from the beginning.” John 15:26-27. My Spirit testifies with your spirit that you are children of God and that your sins and offenses I remember NO MORE.

And Jesus shared with His disciples how the Holy Spirit would come, “I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.” John 14:16-17. Already My Spirit would abide with people, such as David, but My Spirit was never in you until Jesus died and I raised Him from the dead and He ascended back to Me to pour Him out on you who had been justified by faith in the finished work of Jesus.

And what other awesome truth did Jesus tell His disciples about this divine plan? Listen: “These things I have spoken to you while abiding 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 said to you.” John 14:25-26.

Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit. He was not born of perishable seed from Adam as you all are, but from the imperishable seed of My Word, and in Him you are born again by that same Word. But before He died for your sins, you could not be filled with My Spirit. And I tell you that where Jesus was, the power was present to heal. That power is the Holy Spirit. And now for you who are in Christ Jesus, that power to heal is IN YOU by My Spirit, just as it was and is in Jesus. My Spirit raises you up to a glorified body, it is nothing much for Him to quicken, heal, and strengthen your mortal bodies now. Let us always work together to bring about the result of healing for all who are oppressed of the devil. It is in you and on you. But best of all, the anointing is always there for you to enable you to worship in Spirit and truth and be in close, very close, contact with Me.

I love you, guard your heart for from it flow the issues of life. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit by walking anyway but the way of faith and love. Righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

This Jesus God raised up again, to which we are all witnesses. Therefore having been exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He has poured forth this which you both see and hear. Acts 2:32-33.
