Jesus promised when he left he would send a counselor to be with the disciples (and us). He is speaking of the Holy Spirit. According to scripture, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are One.
In Acts (2:38 & 39) Peter replied "Repent and be babtized every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off--for all whom the Lord our God will call.
