Lesson 32: John 7:37-39

John 7:37-39
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Background Information
The Holy Ghost is the same as the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is, of course, God, being One of Holy Trinity.
