Wesley's Notes for John 14:17

14:17 The Spirit of truth - Who has, reveals, testifies, and defends the truth as it is in Jesus. Whom the world - All who do not love or fear God, cannot receive, because it seeth him not - Having no spiritual senses, no internal eye to discern him; nor consequently knoweth him. He shall be in you - As a constant guest. Your bodies and souls shall be temples of the Holy Ghost dwelling in you.

In the Fall of 1973, it was November, I think, I met some people in whom was the Spirit of the Living God. This was evidenced at first in that I could feel Him in their presence. God is Love. They gave thanks with joy at my dinner table and prayed in the Spirit. They told me, God inhabits praise. It's in the Book, read it for yourself! Some time after they had left, I was sitting on my bed reading in the gospel of John, chapter 14, wonderful things like, "I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever..." When I got down to the 17th verse, "Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you." Then I realized this is what the whole world needed to solve all its problems, if only they could see... and I realized this is what I had been seeking my whole life, and I thanked God and began to praise Him with my whole heart, and the Spirit of Truth fell on me as He must have from the beginning... It was wonderfully bright and felt like living water rushing through and through and I praised Him with other tongues I knew not. Neither did I suspect that this would happen to me in advance, but I had just met Jesus "who will baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire!" Later, on January 25, 1974, I was baptized in His name for the remission of my sins, meaning not only was I forgiven, but also that He had paid for it with His own blood. This was among my "first works" of faith after that I had received faith through the free grace of His Love. He also had said, "when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth"... "...he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him."!!!

Those of the world cannot receive the truth, because they do not know him or acknowledge him. but as a child of God, you will know the truth if you receive him and he will dwell in you spiritually. For your body is the temple for the holy ghost.
