The Holy Spirit is the third person in trinity(God the father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit), it is well explained in the previous TFT.
The word Advocate has different meanings: According to the English Dictionary;
-it means someone whose job is to speak for someone’s case in a court of law; or a person who supports someone to make their voice heard. It also means a comforter, helper, counsellor of our soul(Soul won to the father through word of encouragement to the fellow by the person of the Holy Spirit), redeemer(he redeems someone who is accursed).
The Greek name for Advocate is Paraclete John 14:26
“But the Helper, the HolySpirit, whom the father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you”
The Advocate is therefore described as defender, mediator who fulfills the function of an intercessor. The functions of an advocate is also the same as the function of a lawyer, like an attorney in court. The Holy Spirit represent and defend us when the devil tries to condemn us before God, he make the voice of believers to be heard by God. Falujo Omoseye said, the Holy Spirit defend us and he can speak for you in places that matter. He can be your voice in your absence.
The Advocate is the one who defend those who are guilty of sin committed thereby saving them from the penalty and danger of losing eternal life and salvation. This is what Christ did for us!
The Advocate watches over the disciples of Christ with his omnipotent power. John 14:6
Christ is the Holy one who came to dwell among us as flesh. John1:14 He promised to be with us till the close of age. It follows that the apostles must continually seek the presence of the Holy Spirit. The presence of the word (Jesus) which during his earthly mission was physical and visible in incarnate humanity but which after the ascension to the Holy Spirit(Advocate) is made present according to the promise of Jesus in John 14:17, His desires to soul and the church will make the invisible Christ present in an everlasting manner until the end of the world.
The transcendent unity of the son will ensure that Christ humanity assumed by the word will be present in how the trinitarian plan of salvation has been put into effect through the power of the father.
The Advocate speaks through you (mark 12:2, matt 19:17-20). He gives us the grace to come Holy and blameless before God.
You can’t have access to the Holy Spirit if you’ve not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and saviour. He can’t help you if you don’t know Him, He only help those He knows their identities.
If you want to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and saviour kindly say the following prayer:
Lord Jesus, come into my life, I believe you died and resurrected for me. Write my name in the book of life and blot out all my sins. Thank you Lord.
If you’ve have said the following prayer, I congratulate you, welcome to the family of Christ. I assure you that you have the Holy Spirit and He will help you in the journey of your Christian walk.
