“These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time comes, that whosoever kills you will think that he does God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor Me. But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you. But now I go My way to Him that sent Me; and none of you asked Me, ‘Where are You going?’ But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow has filled your heart.
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; ‘It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send Him unto you. And when He is come, He will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they believe not on Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father, and you see me no more; of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come. He shall glorify Me: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall shew unto you. All things that the Father has are Mine: therefore said I, that He shall take of Mine, and shall shew unto you. A little while, and you shall not see Me: and again, a little while, and you shall see Me, because I go to the Father.” John 16:1-16
