        Messiah, in theology, the Anointed One. It was the Hebrew name for the promised deliverer of mankind. The English word is derived from the Hebrew mashìah, meaning 'anointed'. In the Greek version of the Hebrew Bible, the Septuagint, this word is translated by the word Christos, from which 'Christ' is derived. Hence the name Jesus Christ identifies Jesus as the Messiah, although Jewish religion asserts that the Messiah is yet to come.

        In the following two versicles extracted from Bible's book of John, Jesus promises to send a Comforter, this is a very elevated soul who will teach us the correct path to attain spiritual liberation.

        John 14:16. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

        John 14:26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

        We can see this Comforter in Santhigiri Ahsram, South India. He speaks only what is heard from the voice of God and that is known through spiritual or divine wisdom. He reveals these things to his disciples and devotees through darshans or spiritual visions. He won't speak anything about himself. He informs us before hand what is going to happen and the reason for it and guides us
