- Who is the comforter? [closed] 3 answers
As I was reading Bible of John I came by these verses:
John 16:7-8: "But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment."
As Jesus has gone so the second factor that an advocate will come should also take place. Who can be the advocate?
John 16:13-14: "But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you."
The Spirit of truth will come according to Jesus so who could be that Spirit of truth? Thanks in anticipation.
EDIT: MUST READ If you say that it was the Holy Spirit then why pronoun "HE" is used instead of "IT". And in Bible of John it is stated:
John 14:16 "And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever--"
Here it is cleared that "another advocate". If advocate means Holy Spirit then this verse shows that we today have another Holy Spirit while in time of Jesus it was other Holy Spirit? Then there comes two Holy Spirits and Trinity becomes Quadrinity(One God in four: Father, son, Holy Spirit at time of Jesus, Holy Spirit at our times)
Does Holy Spirit talk as Jesus said "He will not speak on his own but only what he hears"?
