Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. John 16:20
Right now there doesn’t appear to be much joyful about in the world. But remember Gods promise that your sorrow shall be turned into Joy. This world is temporary and will eventually fade away, but Gods kingdom is Eternal and Jesus will reign forever.
We must learn to endure the hardships of this world. Poverty, sickness, famine, and death are all daily struggles for all. But this broken world will be restored, Jesus has already overcome the world, just wait for God to turn your sorrow into Joy
A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. John 16:21
Jesus compares the end times to a woman in labor, she struggles and suffers with the pains. But eventually that promised child is born, and all sorrow is turned into Joy. This is the same for Gods Kingdom, there will be labor pains but eventually the promised Kingdom will be delivered.
And you now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man takes from you. John 16:22
Jesus makes another promise, that we will see him again. Jesus will return as our King of all Kings, and he will reign forever. All death, sorrow, and tears will be gone forever. Jesus also promises the Joy of The Lord nobody can take from you, because Jesus has defeated death and Satan in Jesus Name AMen
