John 14:1-6 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.” Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. #Bible
Don’t worry, Jesus tells His Disciples. While Jesus has just revealed His betrayer, and informed Peter of His three denials of Jesus, not to mention His death on the cross. The Disciples are a bit concerned and nervous with what will happen next.
Jesus tells them as you believe in, trust and depend on and have faith in God the Father, Do so with Jesus also.
Jesus tells them of the many mansions, rooms, abodes in His Father’s house. He points out that if it were not so He would have told them. Jesus never gave His Disciples opportunity to disbelieve Him before and He isn’t now.
Jesus gives the Disciples the good news, that He is going to prepare a place for them.
Jesus isn’t leaving the Father God’s house, He’s just going to another abode, or section of the Father’s house, and He will return for them also.
The Disciples will be received by Jesus and will reside with Jesus.
When Jesus said they know where He is going, it figure’s Thomas the realist would be the one asking where. Thomas wanted to be sure, just like he did with Jesus rising from death.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me, Jesus says.
Just like when Jesus appeared to Thomas and told him to put his hand in His side and his finger in His hand, and believe. Jesus now confirms the only way to see or know the Father God was by Jesus. In fact Jesus Goes on to say if you see Me you have seen the Father God.
We Christians today basically go through this same process in coming to know God and knowing through Jesus the Christ, the One and Only Unique Son of God. Who has given of Himself as the Father has, in giving us our foretaste, or proof of our residence, our abode with our God in eternity. By giving us our God, the Holly Spirit to reside in our mortal bodies with us even forever.
Jesus is still at work preparing our home in our Father’s Home. I can’t even imagine how wonderfully awesome it will be, because our God Jesus has been working for thousand’s of years to accomplish His task.
I can’t understand how or why anyone would reject our Wonderful Savior, our Wonderful Father God. Can He do any more to show us His Love for Us?
I say believe and be saved from the wrath that is coming very soon for those who reject their Creator God.
