Default Re: I Am The Parakletos. Any Questions?

Quote:
The original New Testament Greek word parakletos (pronounced in Greek as par-ak-lay-tos), which literally means called to one's side, was used to describe someone who pleaded another's cause, or who helped others by defending or comforting them.
...
Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in My Name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; if you ask anything in My Name, I will do it. If you love Me, you will keep My Commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Counselor [parakletos], to be with you for ever, even the 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." (John 14:12-17 RSV)

"But when the Counselor [parakletos] comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of Truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness to me; and you also are witnesses" (John 15:26-27 RSV)

"Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counselor [parakletos] will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convince the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment" (John 16:7-8 RSV)

Greek for advocate/intercessor, the word “parakletos” traces its roots back to ancient times. Translated in a variety of ways, “parakletos” refers to one who comes alongside and encourages us, one who enables us to be brave, one who empowers us to cope with the struggles and battles of life
Parakletos

Actually, I carry the "Spirit of Truth". I am here to open your eyes to the societies who are against God, and people follow like lost sheep.
