Bible: John 16:1-15

16:1I have told you all these things so that you will not fall away. 1  16:2 They will put you out of 2  the synagogue, 3  yet a time 4  is coming when the one who kills you will think he is offering service to God. 5  16:3 They 6  will do these things because they have not known the Father or me. 7  16:4 But I have told you these things 8  so that when their time 9  comes, you will remember that I told you about them. 10 

“I did not tell you these things from the beginning because I was with you. 11  16:5 But now I am going to the one who sent me, 12  and not one of you is asking me, ‘Where are you going?’ 13  16:6 Instead your hearts are filled with sadness 14  because I have said these things to you. 16:7 But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I am going away. For if I do not go away, the Advocate 15  will not come to you, but if I go, I will send him to you. 16:8 And when he 16  comes, he will prove the world wrong 17  concerning sin and 18  righteousness and 19  judgment 16:9 concerning sin, because 20  they do not believe in me; 21  16:10 concerning righteousness, 22  because 23  I am going to the Father and you will see me no longer; 16:11 and concerning judgment, 24  because 25  the ruler of this world 26  has been condemned. 27 

16:12I have many more things to say to you, 28  but you cannot bear 29  them now. 16:13 But when he, 30  the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide 31  you into all truth. 32  For he will not speak on his own authority, 33  but will speak whatever he hears, and will tell you 34  what is to come. 35  16:14 He 36  will glorify me, 37  because he will receive 38  from me what is mine 39  and will tell it to you. 40  16:15 Everything that the Father has is mine; that is why I said the Spirit 41  will receive from me what is mine 42  and will tell it to you. 43
