The Comforter Will Come

It’s hard to lose someone you love, someone who has been your mentor and provider. Jesus comforts his disciples before he goes.

John 16:1-16

Persecution will come

  • 1. Don’t let persecution cause you to stumble in your faith
  • 2. Those who persecute you will think that they are working for God
  • 3. They persecute you in the name of God but they don’t know God
  • 4. I want you to remember these words when the persecution comes

The Holy Spirit will come

  • 5-7. I must go away so that the Comforter can come to you
  • 8-11. He will reprove the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. Sin because they don’t believe in me; righteousness because I am going to my Father; and judgment because evil will be judged.
  • 12-14. He will teach you many things that I cannot teach you now.

Jesus will come

  • 15-16. Yes, I am going to the Father; but you will see me.
