I will not leave you desolate [orphans, mg.]: I come unto you. John 14.18.  

The Lord will not leave us as orphans. He will himself take care of us, nourishing us, edifying us, and bearing the full responsibility for us. In other words, the indwelling Holy Spirit is to translate into our subjective experience the objective fact of what Christ has accomplished for us on the cross. The Spirit of truth is to guide us into reality.  

“Comforter” in the Greek original includes two thoughts: one means “called to one’s side”—that is, to one’s aid. This is to say that the Holy Spirit is our present help. Whenever we need His aid, He is always alongside us to help. The other means “one who pleads another’s cause”—an advocate. Christ, as it were, appears before God to plead for us—that is, to plead for our good.
