Summary:  The Work of the Holy Spirit, Your Sorrow Will Turn into Joy, I Have Overcome the World

They will put you out of the synagogues. Indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. And they will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me. ~ John 16:2-3

Being a true believer in Jesus Christ, as opposed to just being religious or knowing about Him. It will be confusing to you (I know it is for me) why people you think are Christians get angry when you mention the truths in the bible. A good example is the followers of prosperity preachers. Try to explain to them that it is all about Jesus and not us. Surely you will be rebuked and silenced quickly. What motivates them to do these things? Due to the fact that they have not known the Father or Jesus, but have believed the lies of the devil who has been playing the same game since the beginning of time. If you study and know the word, you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. ~ David Campbell

In that day you will ask in my name, and I do not say to you that I will ask the Father on your behalf; for the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God. ~ John 16:26-27

Christ was clarifying what He meant by praying in His name. He did not mean asking Him to ask the Father, as if the Father was indifferent to believers, but not to His Son. On the contrary, the Father loves Christ’s own. In fact, the Father sent the Son to redeem them and then return. Asking in Jesus’ name means simply asking on the basis of His merit, His righteousness, and for whatever would honor and glorify Him so as to build His kingdom.  MacArthur Bible Commentary

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” ~ John 16:33
