The HOLY SPIRIT will never be consumed because He will always be with us as long as we remain in Him.

As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit--just as it has taught you, remain in him.
