Our Fathers House

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. John 14:1

At some point in all of our lives, regardless of what your faith or beliefs are, you will have to face our enemy death. Many times people don’t even think about God or the afterlife until a death occurs to someone close to them. But Jesus actually taught us about death and what to expect, right before he was going to be crucified for our sins

Jesus gives us the hope and reassurance by starting out “Don’t let your hearts be troubled” he knows the pain of death, as Jesus wept during the death of his friend Lazurus. But Jesus is telling us were going to be ok, if we believe in Christ as our Lord and Savior , we are saved through him

My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? John 14:2

Jesus goes on to describe Heaven, in Gods house (Heaven) there are many room, which means God has prepared a place for us with him. As we know Jesus is living Word of God, the Truth, since he told us this we should expect this after death

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:3

Next Jesus reveals not only did God prepare a place for us but Jesus himself will come back for us and take us to be with him. Isn’t that a comfort to know when we crossover to the other side our Lord will come get us and we won’t be alone

You know the way to the place where I am going.” John 14:4

Jesus ends with a strong statement, You know the way to the place (Heaven)where I am going” Many will try to complicate death but its simple. When you give yourself to Christ you belong to God. You are going to be with him in his Kingdom forever. Take comfort in these words and promises that our Messiah delivered to us in Jesus Name Amen

    May I share more of the glorious truth of John 14:-13 here with your readers, brother? We are richly blessed when we know this:

    Jesus is referring to the Jesiwsh wedding custom of the day: after the marriage covenant is made, the bridegroom leaves to prepare a place for his bride in his father’s house. After having entered into covenant with eleven of His disciples (His future Bride) during the last supper, Jesus is assuring them He will return from heaven for her. Paul explains further in 1 Thess. that this is to deliver us from the coming wrath (1:10 and 4:15-18).

    In John 14:1-3 Jesus is referring to the rapture, to which He alluded in His Olivet discourse after He had described the great trubulation when He told them “no one knows the day or the hour” that He, the Bridegroom, will come for His Bride “except the Father” (Matt. 24:36). See, the Jewish wedding custom also entailed that the father of the groom determined the day and the hour that the bridegroom was to go get his bride!
