The Holy Spirit Promised

“But now (A)I am going to Him who sent Me; and none of you asks Me, ‘(B)Where are You going?’ But because I have said these things to you, (C)grief has filled your heart. But I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I am leaving; for if I do not leave, the [a](D)Helper will not come to you; but if I go, (E)I will send Him to you. And He, when He comes, will convict the world regarding sin, and righteousness, and judgment: regarding sin, (F)because they do not believe in Me; 10 and regarding (G)righteousness, because (H)I am going to the Father and you no longer are going to see Me; 11 (I)and regarding judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.

12 “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them at the present time. 13 But when He, (J)the Spirit of truth, comes, He will (K)guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. 14 He will (L)glorify Me, for He will take from Mine and will disclose it to you. 15 (M)All things that the Father has are Mine; this is why I said that He takes from Mine and will disclose it to you.

Our Victory in Christ

26 Now in the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for (A)we do not know what to pray for as we should, but (B)the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with [a]groanings too deep for words; 27 and (C)He who searches the hearts knows what (D)the mind of the Spirit is, because He (E)intercedes for the [b]saints according to the will of God.
