TEXT: John 16: 5-22(NKJV)
16:5. ” But now I go away to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’
16:6. “But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart.
16:7. “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 if I depart, I will send Him to you.
16:8. “And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
16:9. “of sin, because they do not believe in Me;

16:10. “of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more;
16:11. “of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
16:12. “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear [them] now.
16:13. “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, 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.
16:14. “He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare [it] to you.
16:15. “All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare [it] to you.
16:16. ” A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me, because I go to the Father.”

16:17. Then [some] of His disciples said among themselves, “What is this that He says to us, ‘A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me’; and, ‘because I go to the Father’?”
16:18. They said therefore, “What is this that He says, ‘A little while’? We do not know what He is saying.”
16:19. Now Jesus knew that they desired to ask Him, and He said to them, “Are you inquiring among yourselves about what I said, ‘A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me’?
16:20. “Most assuredly, I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.

16:21. “A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.
16:22. “Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.

Anglican Daily Fountain 7 May 2023 STUDY:

The Holy Spirit is indispensable in our lives. Some of His qualities are:
1. Convicts the world of sin and righteousness: He has the sole authority to convict men to repent when they hear the gospel.
2. Guides us into all truth including revelations, understanding of scriptures, skills to improve our careers and family lives, unravelling of secrets, inventions etc.
3. Speaks in consonance with the Father: Any word, revelation and prophecy attributed to Him cannot contradict the word of God.

4. Declares future events: This includes God’s plan for generations, future events in our personal lives, families, workplace, church, nation and the world.
5. Honours and glorifies Jesus: Any word or manifestation attributed to the Holy Spirit must glorify and honour Jesus and not angels or religious leaders.
6. Intercedes, Helps, Counsels, Comforts, Advocates Strengthens and Stands by: He intercedes for us, teaches us to pray, helps us in situations of life, counsels during decision-making, comforts us in sorrow and trials; is our advocate before the Godhead, our strengthener when spiritually and physically weak and He stands by to provide needed resources for victory.

Are you filled with the Holy Spirit? You simply cannot do without him for this promise is unto you and your children and as many as the Lord will call to Himself(Acts 2: 39).

PRAYER: Father, fill me with the HolySpirit in Jesus name, Amen.
