John 14:16-17
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever— the Spirit of truth.....But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.

John 14:26
"But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you."

Two verses to make note of regarding the Trinity. In first the Father will send "another" parakletos (called to one's side to be of help). Another is not different in Greek but of a "similar kind". Jesus and Holy Spirit are of a similar kind as part of the Trinity.

Not to just be "with you forever", but abide with you forever. The Spirit ("pneuma") refered to in the Old Testament as the "Spirit of God". Doesn't sound like Spirit will ever leave you in this verse. The Spirit of Truth because God is Truth. Jesus is Truth.

"Before Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came upon men and dwelt with them. But since Pentecost, when a man believes on the Lord Jesus, the Holy Spirit takes up His abode in that man’s life forever."

MacDonald, W., & Farstad, A. 1997, c1995. Believer's Bible Commentary : Old and New Testaments . Thomas Nelson: Nashville

In the fuuture the Holy Spirit will be in you - The "in you" referred to in NIV is that Gk. word "en" that has the meaning of being immersed, enmeshed, intertwined with you. Pretty cool!

In John 14:26 the Trinity is broken down again Holy Spirit, Father, and Jesus. Note the teaching denoted here is a "complete teaching". Mark down that in this first reference to "complete teaching" Holy Spriit will deal with the "past". What Jesus said, how it refers to Old Testament, and the Old Testament itself.

2 Samuel 7:1-8:18
I love the audio read Tom Dooley comments about..what would you do if God said no to something you really want to do- the answer is sometimes in the unanswered prayer.

I like that. Many times I ask the Lord for a sign. And sometimes I hear nothing and I debate and conflict in my mind on what is right and what is wrong. Then when I release it, the answer comes then I still conflict..then just when I have confused or given others false hope..along comes peace and dialogue and a call in the right direction. That is us! We r humans and will make mistakes lots!! But if we truly are seeking God then in the end we will truly be blessed.

John 14:15-31 Jesus and the Father dwell in us! The Holy Spirit is living among us! We dream of heaven but heaven came down to us. How wonderful. It commuted with us in love: the comforter! Holy Spirit.

Psalm 119: 33-48. Talks about freedom- sets us free. Love and law of liberty /character is joy!

Last of proverbs 15! The fear of the Lord teaches a man wisdom and humility comes before honor. Amen!
