What did Jesus mean when he said, “But when the Counselor comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of Truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness to me.” (John 15:26) Also, in John 16:13-15, he speaks of the Counselor or the Spirit of Truth who will “answer you into all the truth.” Who or what is the Counselor, or the Comforter, or the Holy Ghost?
The Guide: The Counselor, the Spirit of Truth or the Holy Spirit are all the same. It is the ever present, available Voice of the Living God at your disposal, if only you wish to hear it and to open yourself to it. It comes from within you, but also from outside of you, perhaps imbedded in another person, through someone else’s consciousness.
The Holy Spirit exists in all truth, in all voices that express God’s truth. It exists in the form of angels and highly developed spirits who come to your aid and voice what you need to hear. 1t comes as an inner voice. It comes as your conscience. The Counselor always advises according to the deepest and highest truths. The Holy Spirit is also the Comforter, who dispenses peace, hope, light and new bright visions where it seemed hopeless before.
