The Comforter – Bible Study
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. (John 15:26)
CHRIST IS HERE SPEAKING TO HIS DISCIPLES AND HE ALSO SAID: “But when the Comforter is come whom I will send unto you from the Father (Spirit), even the spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, He shall testify of Me.” (John 16:26)
Then again: “And I will pray the Father and He shall give you another Comforter, and He may abide with you forever, even the spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him; but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you Comfortless; I will come to you, yet a little while and the world order seeth Me no more; but ye shall see Me, because I live, ye shall live also.” (John 14:16-19)
Alright, the Comforter sent another Comforter to some people who were not of the World Order.
In the ‘Old Book’, ‘Palmoni’, by M. Mahan D.D.,1863, we find the author calling his work a ‘free inquiry.’ He was trying to find a connection between the application of numbers of the scriptures as a key to sacred dates of Scripture. This author calls to your attention that all of nature is actually a mystery. Why do things in nature happen as they do? Who designed the flowers for instance, if things just happened as the Evolutionists think? After all, there are Sermons in stone such as the Great Pyramid, and Stonehenge, and books in running brooks. (This is referring to the books in the brooks in South America as told in the book ‘In Search of the White God.’) Since this is all true, then our author suggests that we might expect to find even in the arithmetic of the scriptures more things than are dreamed of, in our limited philosophy, especially outside of this idea that you live your life and expect to go to heaven or hell when you die. Is that then all the story of our scriptures?
