The Purpose Of The Holy Spirit to The Believer And Unbeliever

The purpose of the Holy Spirit to the believer
       To abide with you forever.
(…that He may abide with you forever John 14:16c NKJV), (…and make Our home with him. John 14:23e NKJV) - To make home, to remain.

       To dwell with you.
(…or He dwells with you John 14:17d NKJV) - To live with you.

       To be in you.
 (…will be in you. John 14:17d NKJV).

Note: We are looking at two aspects here. He will be with us (not temporarily – to remain, to make home, to live with) and in us.

       To guide us into all truth – because He is the Spirit of Truth.
(…He will guide you into all truth; John 16:13a NKJV).

       To teach you all things.
 (…He will teach you all things…John 14:26d NKJV).

       To bring to your remembrance all things that Jesus Christ has said to you
(…and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. John 14:26e NKJV).

       To convict the world of righteousness, and of judgment.
(…and of righteousness, and of judgment:   of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.  John 16:8c/d, vs 10, vs 11 NKJV).

       To glorify Christ.
(He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you. John 16:14-15 NKJV).

The purpose of the Holy Spirit to the unbeliever
       To convict of sin (…He will convict the world of sin…: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; John 16:8b, vs 9 NKJV)
