Holy Spirit

Jesus said,

"I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. "

[John 14:19]

God's presence and power have been made available to all.

The Holy Spirit is God Himself, not just a power or a force and He comes to fill us to overflowing, to enable us to live a new life, and to spill over to touch others.

When Jesus ascended into heaven the Holy Spirit was released to earth in His place.

He hasn’t come just to anoint special people like in the Old Testament, but to fill all who believe.
