13 Howbeit, when hee the spirit of trueth is come, he wil guide you into all trueth: For he shall not speake of himselfe: but whatsoeuer he shall heare, that shall he speake, and he will shew you things to come.
17 Then saide some of his disciples among themselues, What is this that he saith vnto vs, A litle while, and ye shal not see me: and againe, a litle while, and ye shall see me: and, because I goe to the Father?
19 Now Iesus knew that they were desirous to aske him, & said vnto them, Doe ye enquire among your selues of that I saide, A litle while, and ye shall not see mee: and againe; A little while and ye shall see me?
21 A woman, when she is in trauaile, hath sorrow, because her houre is come: but assoone as she is deliuered of the child, she remembreth no more the anguish, for ioy that a man is borne into the world.

Jaff's John Chapter 16 comment on 5/20/2013, 12:10am...
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
who is the comforter ??
12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
Who is the spirit of truth ? what guidence given by him to mankind ? what are the things he shew to mankind?

The Bible refers to the Holy Spirit as the spirit of God; or the spirit of Christ. The Holy Spirit is not another member of the Godhead, but the spirit of the Godhead. It should not speak of himself, but what he shall hear that shall he speak.

I have never truly got it before. This is an eye opener that describes the reality of my life here today. I am truly bewildered.

Please let's read the 7th verse and the 13th with this clarity: Jesus is God, Father is God and the spirit is God, is that right? If yes, does that mean that it is expedient for you that God goes away: for if God goes not away, the God will not come unto you; but if God departs, God will send God unto you. And at the 13th says that God the spirit of truth will not speak of God self but God hears what God shall speak and God shall guide you in all truth!! Please explain this to me. Thanks in advance.

Richard Bilodeau's John Chapter 16 comment about verse 9 on 12/27/2011, 2:29pm...
Yes,this is what i believe according to new testament's new commandements.SIN :-> is not wanting to believe the words,and the personne of the Lord and Glorious Savior, Jesus-Christ.
Therefore this is why i love to say with the Holy Spirit. He who practices SIN:-> is not wanting to believe the words,and the personne of the Lord and Glorious Savior, Jesus-Christ.
And as these commendable commentators say, like
F.F Bruce , C.H Macintoch , J.N Darby , William Kelly , F.B Hole , Howard Marshall, Hamilton Smith , G.Vernon McGee , A. Plummer , Dr. S.

1John 3:4.The author of 1 John is not referring to lawlessness as violation of the Mosaic law (as Paul does in Rom. 4:7)W.H Harris
It is not so much the transgression of the Law.
It's living as if there is no Law...and no law giver. J.MacArthur.
1Jn.3:4-“Everyone that practiseth sin practiseth also lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness” (Numerical Bible). The translation of the King James version is recognized by scholars to be wrong in this case...-L.M . Grant
C.H Mackintosh : The First Epistle of John. Submitted by William Lincoln on Wed, 09/05/2007 - 05:00
“Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law; for sin is the transgression of the law. There again is another very bad translation .
It should be—“for sin is lawlessness.”
William Kelly :1 Jean 3:4.
"Whosoever doeth sin doeth also lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness?" This is a very different rendering from that of the A.V.; ...
Sin is not breach of law but lawlessness.
-This is the true sense. No other rendering is possible legitimately. What has ruled here is an utter mistake,founded on making the law instead of Christ the rule of life for the Christian, as people do who understand not the scriptures .
Pg.176,New International Commentary on the New testament- The Epistles of John,according to
1John 3:4.There are reasons to doubt that lawbreaking is to be understood here because the word «law» is completely absent.It is the same word as used in 2 Thess.3,7 speaking about the,
- man of lawlessness- which is referring to the one opposed to Christ and standing in opposition to Christ.
J.N Darby : 1st. Epistle of John,3:4
He who commits sin (not transgresses the law ), but acts lawlessly...
The writings of Hamilton Smith: The Epistles of John.-The apostles...states that, “Every one that practises sin practises also lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness” (N.Tn.).
Sin is not simply transgressing a known law, as the defective translation of the Authorised Version suggests. The principle of sin is lawlessness, or doing one's own will apart altogether from any law.
Finally so many say so ,its why so many has denied the right to Jesus that has USED the phrases«the practice of sin,iniquity and evilness)Ex.as in John 8:34 Math,7:23 and John 3:20.
The right for the Lord Jesus that has given his difinition of sin(John 16:9 AS IN jn.8:34 THRU THE WHOLE CONTEXT- OPPOSITION TO CHIST) tHE REGRETTABLE ERROR OF 1JN.3:4 as so many, many, many commentators say,Tells me that it has denied the Master's teaching of his usage of the word to who John was faithful to.Therefore a regrettable error has ruled,and error means falsehood.
Earl Royal's John Chapter 16 comment about verse 7 on 10/24/2011, 9:24pm...
The Spirit of God in some sense had come, before the death of Christ; he had appeared in the creation of all things out of nothing, as a joint Creator with the Father and Son; he was come as a spirit of prophecy upon the inspired writers, and others; the Old Testament saints had received him as a spirit of faith; he had been given to Christ as man, without measure, and the disciples had been partakers of his gifts and graces; but he was not come in so peculiar a manner as he afterwards did; as the promise of the Father, the glorifier of Christ, the comforter of his people, the spirit of truth, and the reprover of the world: there are reasons to be given, why the Spirit of God should not come in such a manner before, as after the death of Christ. The order of the three divine persons in the Trinity, and in the economy of man's salvation, required such a method to be observed; that the Father should first, and for a while, be more especially manifested; next the Son, and then the Spirit: besides, our Lord has given a reason himself, why the Spirit "was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified", Joh_7:39; And the coming of the Spirit as a comforter, and the spirit of truth, was to be through the intercession, and by the mission of Christ; and therefore it was proper he should go away first, in order to send him; add to all this, that if Christ had not gone away or died, there would have been nothing for the Spirit to have done; no blood to sprinkle; no righteousness to reveal and bring near; no salvation to apply; or any of the things of Christ, and blessings of grace, to have taken and shown; all which are owing to the death of Christ, and which show the expediency of it: the expediency of Christ's death for the mission of the Spirit to his disciples, is very conspicuous; for hereby they were comforted and supported under a variety of troubles; were led into all truth, and so furnished for their ministerial work; and were made abundantly successful in it, that being attended with the demonstration of the Spirit and of power. ...Matthew Henry Commentary
