THE "GOING OUT"


We read in John 15:26, "When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me."


The "sending" the "going out" which Jesus refers to here is not like a king sending a servant. It is an extending of Himself – the Holy Spirit, the third part of our Triune God – which proceeds from God as another manifestation of Himself. God is extending His own power to fulfill His own designs in this world.


It is like a rainbow in a storm. The storm is not the rainbow. Neither is the rainbow the storm, but they are a part of each other . . . separately identifiable, yet the same. The rainbow cannot be seen until the Sun highlights the rainbow. Just so, God cannot be fully realized until God the Son gives His light to roll back the dark.
