The Holy Spirit is a power given from God to mankind to understand the scriptures. The Holy Spirit is not an individual, but rather a gift or comforter given by Jesus Christ through His Father, the Almighty God to help us to understand the meaning of His word. The Holy Spirit is offered to any individual who desires to be a footstep follower of Christ. Many diversities of gifts are available through the Holy Spirit. It is important for an individual to ask for help of the Holy Spirit from God, through His Son Jesus in prayer. It is poured out at the request through His Son.

Christ's followers promised the Holy Spirit for understanding and learning.
The Holy Spirit was promised to His followers after Christ was raised from the dead and glorified.
The Holy Spirit was a special gift given to His Saints.

Jehovah's chosen receive help from the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:4-11
Many different gifts from the Holy Spirit are given to different ones but everyone profits because the spirit is given for the edification of the body.
Anyone who asks to receive the Holy Spirit will receieve it.
Obey and change and you will receive the help of the Holy Spirit. This is a promise.
The Holy Spirit was given to specific individuals before Christ, but was open to all after his resurrection. While under the law, they didn’t need the Holy Spirit because they had the Mosaic Law to guide them, they had the law to follow. It governed them. Now we are governed by the Spirit and led by the Spirit.
