John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
Brothers, here Jesus commands us to love one another, as He has loved us and gave his very life for us. Jesus tells us to love one another.
John 15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
Jesus calls us friends because He laid down his life for us.
John 15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
Again Jesus commands that we have love for one another.
John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
Brothers, Jesus tells us plainly that if the world hates you, remember that the world hated Him before it hated you.
John 15:22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
Jesus tells us that because He came and spoke to them of their sin, now they have no coat to hide their sin.
John 15:24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
Jesus says, that the sinful world now hates both Jesus and God the Father, because He came and did the works of the Father, here on this earth in this world.
John 15:25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
Jesus has fulfilled the word of the law. 'They hated me without a cause,' he tells us.
John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
John 16:7 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.
Brothers, Jesus tells us here that if He goes away, He will send the comforter from the Father for us. This was why He had to go away, because if He did not go, then the Holy Spirit of God could not come to comfort us.
John 16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
John 16:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
John 16:10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
John 16:11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
The Holy Spirit our comforter, will convict the world of sin because they don't believe on Jesus as the Son of God. Pray for more believers to teach the truth of God's Holy Word.
John 16:13 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.
Jesus tells us that when the Holy Spirit our comforter is come that he will show us, His children, ALL TRUTH. The comforter will only speak those things that he hears the Father say. This is what Jesus did here on earth, He only spoke what He heard the Father say.
John 16:14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
John 16:15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
Jesus says, that ALL things that the Father has belongs to Jesus, and that the Holy Spirit will take from Him and give it unto us.
Praise God brothers! We have what Jesus has. Ask and Receive, the Holy Spirit is your teacher, your guide, your helper, your strength giver, and your deliverer of all truth.
God bless you my brothers,
