John 14:1

Let not YOUR heart be troubled; Let not MY heart be troubled; Let not OUR hearts be troubled. These are words from scripture that have comforted multitudes of God's children down through the corridors of time, and neither the things of the world that blacken our life, nor the imaginations of the mind that cloud our heart, must shift our trust in this Word of comfort, that come directly from our great God of all comforts.

John 14:2

John 14:2

Jesus came to heal the broken-hearted; to set the captives free; to cause the lame to walk again; to make the blind to see. He also came to comfort the sorrowing heart and to calm the grieving, confused soul. And what reassurance must have been shed abroad in the hearts of His disciples when they heard these time-shattering words for the first time – there are many rooms in my Father's house. If there weren't, I wouldn't have told you that I am going away to read more...

John 14:3

John 14:3

Jesus had just told His disciples that He was going away – but that He was going to prepare a special place for them in His Father’s house. This was very disturbing for the little group of men who had given up everything to follow the Lord Jesus, and separation from Him was quite shocking.

John 14:9

John 14:9

Like all His band of twelve disciples, Philip was a follower of Christ who had walked and talked with the Creator of the universe for three years.

The invisible everlasting God Who is both spirit and truth was manifest in the flesh, in the person of Jesus Christ, and yet Philip read more...

John 14:12

John 14:12

The miracles of Christ were supernatural signs to authenticate His claims to be the Messiah of Israel as outlined in Scripture, but the WORK that Christ referred to was very different from walking on water, feeding 5000 men with bread and fish, raising people from the dead or casting out demons. Jesus did not say that Christians would do greater miracles but greater WORKS and He told us: this is the work of God is that you believe in Him Whom He has read more...

John 14:15

John 14:15

The Lord Jesus fulfilled the Mosaic Law on behalf of all who would trust in His name as Saviour, so there is now no condemnation for those that are in Christ Jesus.. for the law of the Spirit of life has set us free, in Him.. from the law of sin and death - and yet Jesus called us to keep His commandments!!

We may no longer be under the curse of the Law but this does not exclude us from living godly in Christ Jesus, for we are read more...

Jesus was indeed  God WITH us but He told His disciples of an read more...

John 14:19

John 14:19

The sudden shock of hearing that Jesus was leaving to go back to the Father must have been desperately disturbing for the disciples, but Jesus quickly started to explain.. that although they could not go with Him at that time, their physical separation from Him would only be temporary. Jesus was going to prepare a heavenly abode for each one of them, and unless He went away the many benefits that were planned for believers.. and the glorious mysteries surrounding read more...

John 14:20

Jesus had just finished telling His confused disciples that He was going away to prepare a place for them in His Father's house but that He would not leave them comfortless, but send the Holy Spirit to be with them.. and to live inside them.

John 14:24

It was decided in God’s eternal council chambers that the Son of God would come to earth and be born into the human race as God incarnate, and live the perfect life that God desires from all of us – a life that was empowered by the Holy Spirit – a life that was submitted to the will of the Father and not his own human will. And so, the words that the Lord Jesus spoke were not from Himself but from the Father of love. Everything read more...

He explained that the unsaved would not be able to receive Him, because they know nothing of Him - but that the Spirit of Whom He spoke would stay with them forever, and read more...

John 14:31

Some of the last words of help, encouragement, advice and guidance that Christ gave His eleven disciples, shortly before He became the sin sacrifice for humanity, were that He did exactly as the Father commanded Him - so that the world would know that He loved the Father.

Throughout His life the Lord Jesus had demonstrated the very life that God created man to live - a life of utter dependence upon God and a life that is totally read more...
