Acts 9:31 - Then all of the churches had peace throughout Judea, Galilee,
and Samaria; being built up and moving in the fear of the Lord and in the
encouragement of the Holy Spirit, multiplied.

Part 1 ~ Encouragement of the Holy Spirit

The comfort, or encouragement (paraklesis), of the Holy Spirit is only one
of the many different things that the Holy Spirit does. He is called the
'Parakletos' in John 14:16. Parakletos is difficult to translate because it
has such a wide area of meaning such as helper, encourager, comforter,
mediator, advocate, intercessor, etc. The most outstanding reality of the
'Parakletos' is that He was sent to take the place of Jesus as another
'Parakletos'. Now, instead of the Lord Jesus teaching the apostles and
being their companion, it was the Holy Spirit.
