John 16:7-11

The Purpose of the Holy Spirit


John 16:7-11 but I tell you the truth it is to your advantage that I go away for if I do not go away the Helper will not come to you but if I go, I will send Him to you and when He comes He will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment concerning sin because they do not believe in Me and concerning righteousness because I go to the Father and you no longer see Me and concerning judgment because the ruler of this world has been judged this is such an awesome scripture many times I’ve heard people teach this exactly the opposite of what Yeshua said people say the Holy Spirit is going to come and convict me of sin He’s going to convict you of sin and He’s going to bring judgment to you in the areas where you’ve sinned that is exactly the opposite of what it says here He’s the comforter He’s the Helper He comes to speak to you and He comes to convict the world who’s the world, that’s the people who are not born again the people who have not entered into covenant by the blood of Messiah it says He’s going to convict the world about these 3 things sin, righteousness, and judgment and then He explains them concerning sin because they did not believe in me there’s actually only one sin the only sin is not receiving the sacrifice made available by Messiah Jesus what that means is people are already separated from God by their selfishness by their sin and yet when they accept the blood covenant the fact that Yeshua paid for that then what happens is their sin is paid for by Him and they receive His righteousness so the first thing He’s going to convict people who are not in covenant of their sin that’s what the Holy Spirit is going to do He doesn’t come to convict believers of sin He comes actually to convict believers of righteousness do you know that your own heart your own conscience will tell you about sin everyday of your life you don’t need anybody else to tell you about that most people, their own heart will tell them all day long all the things they did wrong all the mistakes, all the sin all the selfishness all the things that they did wrong you don’t need a comforter to come and do that for you what you need to do what you need to know is that His righteousness has been given to you that you are righteous now because you’re born again it says the second thing concerning righteousness because I go to the Father and you no longer see me so what happened when Yeshua went to the Father His righteousness was released to us released to believers what the Holy Spirit is trying to do day and night is convict you as it were that you’re righteous that God loves you that Jesus’ righteousness is already made manifest in your spirit your soul is in the process of catching up but your spirit has been born again you’re already righteous He’s trying to get us to understand and believe in the righteousness that’s been made available to us not to condemn us, not to judge us no, our own heart is busy with that and of course when our heart convicts us of sin yes we need to repent bring that into light He is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all iniquity and then the third thing concerning judgment because the ruler of this world has been judged who’s been judged satan, demonic spirits the ruler of this world has already been judged He will be sentenced eternally to the lake of fire His destiny is absolutely certain and secure and the Holy Spirit comes to bring judgment to satan and demonic spirits convict us of our righteousness and convict the world of the fact that there’s only one sin and that is rejecting the LORD Jesus Christ I hope that’s a comfort to you I hope that rather than believing that the Holy Spirit is like a mean school master always just trying to find something wrong and convict you of it no no Holy Spirit has come to be your comforter to convict you of righteousness and to convict you of the fact that God loves you so today will you receive the righteousness that Yeshua purchased on the cross on the tree for you that you might receive His righteousness walk in it today what ever you identify with is what you’ll tend to manifest if you identify with your flesh and all the things your flesh does wrong you will probably manifest more of that if you identify with who Messiah Yeshua is in you who He’s created you to be then that’s probably what you’ll manifest and I pray that today you would just meditate on who He is in you not who you are in yourself and allow the comforter the Holy Spirit to come and convict you of righteousness this day God bless you
