The word “comforter” is translated from the word “Paraclete” (“Ho Parakletos” in Greek). Parakletos in Greek is interpreted as “an advocate”, one who pleads the cause of another, one who councils or advises another from deep concern for the other’s welfare  (Beacon Bible commentary volume VII, p.168). In these verses we are told that after Jesus departs, a Paraclete will one day come, will glorify Jesus, and will guide mankind into all truth. The main signs and characteristics of the Comforter are as follows:

i) The Comforter must abide with the believers forever (John 14:16).
This is only possible if the Comforter remains within each and
every human for the rest of the natural lives and beyond i.e., for
all eternity;

ii) The Comforter must testify on the behalf of Jesus (John 15:26).
This is only possible if the Comforter is human too i.e., meeting,
speaking, explaining in detail, as well as answering questions, in
languages humans can understand;

 

iii) The Comforter must bring all aspects of Jesus teachings to
remembrance
(John 14:26). Obviously they must concern unlocking
the deep secrets of Jesus’ parables, of which the Kingdom of God
within tops the list;

 

iv) The Comforter must reprove the world of sin, and of
righteousness, and of judgment i.e., issue warnings of impending
judgment to a world full of sin and ungodliness (John 16:8);

 

v) The Comforter must at all times guide and speak the truth of
events that are coming
(John 16:13). Obviously the truth, directed
exclusively to a world of sin and ungodliness, has to be absolutely
unprecedented, radical and explosive;

vi) The Comforter must glorify Jesus and declare all that the
later wants delivered to humanity
(John 16:14). This task of
informing humans on a global scale requires many, many years to
accomplish;

 

vii) The Comforter -whom the Father will send in Jesus’ name, and
teach all things and remind humanity of everything Jesus has said-
will be the Holy Spirit
(John 14:26). Thus the personality
enlightening humanity of Jesus’ teachings will be both the
Comforter and Holy Spirit sent by God Almighty in Jesus’ name.
