Read John 16.
It is difficult for me to imagine what life would be like if the Holy Spirit had never come. God had and still has a plan which involves Him coming in the flesh and then in spirit and finally coming in flesh again. Do you know anyone who is so self absorbed and driven that they have no concern for anyone but them selves? Are they happy, or a better question is do they have joy? I think that is what hell will be filled with, people driven by profit and self, competing against the same type people with no way to win. Jesus said that if He did not go then the Holy Spirit would not come. We know that there were people touched by the spirit even before Jesus but not on a world wide basis, the vast majority without the Spirit, to give conviction and bear witness to God would be a living hell.
