The Helper…

The powerful work of the Holy Spirit…  “But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor–Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you;  but if I go, I will send Him (the Holy Spirit) to you [to be in close fellowship with you].
