The Holy Spirit, the Comforter
Is Jesus Omnipresent?
This article and the one which follows are compiled from the responses of Brother Emmanel O’neale to another brother who made the claim on a Facebook forum that it is “pantheism” to believe that Christ Himself lives in us.
Christ Our Comforter
Nearly all denominations teach only the first part of the promise of the Comforter, which is John 14:16-17. But what does the full promise of John 14:16-23 say about who our Comforter is?
A Biblical Understanding of a Spirit
"For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God." 1 Corinthians 2:11
Questions and Answers
Trinitarians use John 14:16-17 to teach that the Comforter is ANOTHER PERSON OTHER than Christ Himself. However, Our Lord Jesus Christ EXPRESSLY SAID that HE HIMSELF WOULD COME TO US (John 14:18) and BE IN US (John 14:20), for HE WOULD MANIFEST HIMSELF TO US (John 14:21-22).
The missing third person
To come to a full understanding of this tremendous truth, that God is inspiring humans to re-discover in these closing days of time, Let’s look first at a strange and puzzling revelation.
The Holy Spirit is the Life of Christ
In John 15:4-5, Jesus said the following:
'ABIDE IN ME, AND I IN YOU. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: HE THAT ABIDETH IN ME, AND I IN HIM, THE SAME BRINGETH FORTH MUCH FRUIT: FOR WITHOUT ME YE CAN DO NOTHING.’
The Comforter is Jesus in Spirit form
What saith our Saviour? “I WILL NOT LEAVE YOU COMFORTLESS: I WILL COME TO YOU.” “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father; and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
