In My Father’s house there are many Mansions…

John 14

 1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. (JESUS)

 2In 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.

 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

 4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

In my Father’s house… a dwelling place where God is.

Where God is… in His dwelling place are many mansions.

And if I go prepare a place for you… Jesus, the mediator/intercessor between man and God goes to prepare a place of dwelling in His dwelling place. 

I will come again and receive you unto Myself… Jesus makes a promise that He will come again and will (by promise/word) receive us unto Himself.  

That where I am, there ye may be also… where Jesus resides there you are with Him… you too reside with Him… and He resides with you.

And wherever I go ye know, and the Way ye know… Jesus is telling us where He goes you will know and the way He goes you will know. 

He had to leave in order to go to where God (His Father) dwells and prepare a place there for you… many mansions are in my Father’s dwelling place.

Such a mystery!   Jesus dwells in His Father, and He tells us He dwells in us (the believer), and we dwell in Him; and too many mansions are in the dwelling place of God.   Stone upon stone He (Jesus) prepares and builds upon a Body in Christ… where all who are built upon may dwell in the dwelling place of God.  This is Jesus preparing His Church (stone upon stone; the Bride), that we may dwell with God in His dwelling place.   Jesus is storing up in God’s dwelling place only those things which are able to enter in… things to which dust, nor rust, nor anthing can destroy.   No thing of this world shall be in God’s dwelling place.

 5Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

 6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

 7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, ? (enter your name here) ?  … he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

 10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

 11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

 12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

 15If ye love me, keep my commandments.

 16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

 17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

 19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

the world seeth me no more… the world is unable to see Jesus because they are Blind.  Believers in Jesus do not have to see a physical manifestation of Him to believe He is real and does exist.  The unbeliever and the believer are unable to see Him; for He is at God’s dwelling place and thus God has sent unto us a comforter (the Holy Ghost) who cannot be seen.   So if the world is unable to see Him (and believers too), how can one believe He exists and dwells in the Believer?  … I will love him and MANIFEST Myself to him.

10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

 20At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

 21He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

 22Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

 23Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

 24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

 25These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.

 26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

 27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

 28Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

 29And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

 30Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

 31But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

The Father does the works in us.  We as believers keep His Word in us and allow His Word to manifest these good works.  Jesus said He was going away to be with His Father, to prepare a place for us.  He is at the right hand of the Father preparing His people (the Bride/Church), with the manifestation of His good works so that we will be ready to take up residence in His Heavenly Dwelling.    We are in the world, but we are not of this world.  Allow Christ to manifest His good works in you so that others may see Him.
