    Some important things to know about WHY we are still here, and that we should not be scandalized because of the Lord's purpose in leaving us here. Comforter, or Paraclete, means the Source and Presence of [our] Calling. It is Profitable FOR US that the Spirit come to us, TO CONVICT THE WORLD OF SIN, OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND OF JUDGMENT. For this they will Work Against Us from out of the Synagogues.

    These verses from John 16 are an encouragement to true followers of Jesus Christ. "In the world, ye shall have tribulation." A person who loves Christ WILL suffer persefution because of Him. When we walk in truth and obedience to God and the scripture we have this proof of rejection that shows we have eternal life. Praise God for not leaving us alone, but giving us His Spirit to help us abide!!
