THE COMFORTER HAS COME | John 14:16 | I Am Spirit – Lesson 21 – David Adeniji
When I googled the word comforter, I found that one of its most popular meanings is that it’s a very fluffy and thick blanket that keeps you warm. Can you imagine, to have a comforter is like being sandwiched inside protection. You’re always covered.
But what’s the Bible meaning of comforter? The Greek word (Parakletos) translated as ‘comforter’ in John 14:16 is also translated as ‘advocate’ in 1 John 2:1. So, Comforter as Jesus meant it, in John 14:16, also means advocate. And an advocate is one who supports you or recommends you publicly and openly. In fact, from what we read in 1 John 2:1, where Bible says:
My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
Picture the Holy spirit, your comforter, your advocate, like the media aides of the politician, who would always defend their principals, irrespective of what people say about them. It’s that serious, that’s who the Holy Spirit is to you. Now, don’t take that as a licence to go sinning, but He’s your greatest fan. Be rest assured that He always has your back.
But then understand also that according to John 14:16, Jesus Christ our Lord has prayed for the comforter to come and the comforter has been given in Acts 2:4. So don’t go praying for God to Give you the holy spirit or the comforter. He has already been given Jesus has prayed that prayer.
Your part is to RECEIVE him. Just like the Samaritan Christian’s did in Acts 8:14-15. Yes, you have the holy Spirit at new birth, according to Romans 8:16, but there’s another dimension you must receive, with the evidence of speaking in tongues. Jesus instructed his disciples to tarry in Jerusalem until they receive that, and they did, and they received, in Acts 2:4. That’s the comforter. If you don’t have him yet, RECEIVE Him now, in Jesus name. Amen!
