16 And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide “with” you forever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth “with” you, and shall be “IN” you.

D&C 88: 4- Jesus Christ, his Son(in the flesh) is He that ascended up on high, as also he descended below all things, in that he comprehend all Things, the He might be IN ALL and through all things , the LIGHT of truth; Which truth shineth (in the darkness of you). As also He is IN the sun and the light of the sun, and is the power thereof by which it was made, And he is IN the moon, and the power by which it was made, and He is IN the earth. He is the Light that giveth you light, the same light which quickeneth you understandings; which Light proceedeth forth from the PRESENCE of God to fill the immensity of ALL space; He is the Light which is IN ALL things, which giveth LIFE to ALL things, which IS the Law by which ALL things are governed, even the power of God, who is IN the bosom of Eternity, Who is IN the midst of ALL Things.
D&C 88:49 The light shineth “in” darkness, and the darkness comprehendeth it not; nevertheless, the day shall come when you shall comprehend even God, being quickened “in” him and “by” him.
50 Then shall ye know that ye have seen me, that I am, and that I am the true light that is “in” you, and that you are “in” me; otherwise ye could not abound (Thrive, Exist).
66 Behold, that which you hear is as the voice of one crying in the wilderness—in the wilderness, because you cannot see him—my voice, because My Voice is Spirit; My Spirit is (The) Truth (the Way and The Life); truth abideth and hath no end; and if it be “IN” you it (I) shall abound (IN you). 67 IF your eye BE single to MY Glory, you whole body shall be filled with Light (Me), and there shall be no darkness in you, and the body which is filled with Light comprehendeth ALL things. Therefore sanctify your self that you mind becomes single to God, and the day will come that you shall SEE Him, for He will unveil His face unto you, and it shall be in His own time and in His own way, according to His own will.
D&C 93:2-35 I am the true Light that lighteth every man that cometh in to the world. I am IN the Father, and the Father IN me, and Father and I are ONE. The Father because He gave Me His Fullness, and the Son because I was IN the world (man) and made flesh MY tabernacle, and dwelt among men. I was IN the world (men) and Re-Ceived (Embraced within) of the Father, and His works were plainly manifest.
And John saw and bore record of My GLORY, saying IN the beginning the Word WAS, for He WAS the WORD, The Light and the Redeemer of the world (men), The SPIRIT OF TRUTH, because the world was made by Him, and IN him was the Life of Men and the Light of men. The worlds were made by Him, men were made BY Him, and through Him, and OF Him.
And I, John bear record that I beheld His GLORY, the Glory of the ONLY begotten (In the flesh) of the Father, even the SPIRIT of Truth, which came and dwelt in the Flesh, and dwelt Among us (In the flesh at that time)
19 I give unto you these sayings that you may understand and know how to worship, and know what you worship , that you may come unto the Father IN MY NAME (Spirit), and in due time Re-Ceive (embrace within) of His FULLNESS, and be glorified IN Me, as I am IN the Father.
21 I was in the beginning with the Father , and am the FIRSTBORN (of all), and all those who are begotten through Me, ARE partakers of the Glory of the same, and ARE the church of The Firstborn. Ye were also in the beginning with the Father, that which IS Spirit, even the Spirit of Truth. The Spirit of Truth is OF God, I AM THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, Man was also in the beginning with God, Intelligence OR the Light of Truth, was not created nor made, neither indeed can be. All truth is independent in that sphere in which God placed it, to act for itself, otherwise there is no existence. Here is the agency and the condemnation of man, because that which is from the beginning is PLAINLY manifest unto them, and they Re-Ceive NOT the Light (Me), and every man that Re-Ceives (embrace within) NOT the Light (Christ) is under condemnation.
35 The elements are the tabernacle of God; yea, “man is the tabernacle of God, even temples”; and whatsoever temple is defiled, God shall destroy that temple. The Glory of God IS Intelligence, in other words, LIGHT AND TRUTH (Which I am).
Now, is this enough witnesses that Christ (GOD) is “IN” you and has Always been “IN” you and will always be “IN” you? He said: I will not leave you comfortless – I will always be With (and “IN”) you. (John 14)
