14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions - Enough to receive both the holy angels, and your predecessors in the faith, and all that now believe, and a great multitude, which no man can number.
Joh 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions. By the "Father's house" is meant the heavenly abode. He is about to return there, from whence he had come. I go to prepare a place for you. If the separation was to be an eternal one, he would have forewarned them. Rather, he goes before to prepare a home for them where they can all be together. The departure of Jesus was needful to open an entrance to them and use.

Vicki Your comment troubles me Jesus is talking to his disciples here There are no Christians here There were no Christians at all until after the day of Penticost there were only disciples or followers of Christ and there were more disciples than just the 12 apostles He also says that no one cometh unto the father except though me Many of the nation of Israel never accepted Christ therefore could not enter the Father s house I believe that He was absolutly talking about his Church here

I am thankful to have a Pastor who has devoted the last 40 years of his life in studying and rightly dividing the word of God. In John14:2 it is important to rightly divide the word. Jesus is talking to his disciples here. There are no Christians here. He is talking about the kingdom of Heaven which is a literal visible place. God is telling the nation of Israel no matter what their going through He is preparing a place for them. It is important to understand who is being addressed in a passage and here the church is not being addressed. Hebrews11:16 also tells us he is preparing the city for Israel.This is not mansions for us, the church, to live in.

I am so thankful for my life, if it had not been for God and Jesus I would not be here, I hope one day to stand face to face with both and thank them in person for all I have had from both. I was wondering how in the world can anyone not believe just look around you and see the earth and the wonders of our Heavenly Father. God thank you for all.

Today as well as every day I am so happy that God thought enough of us to send his only son to this sinful world. Thank God that Jesus cared enough to go back and prepare a place for us, no matter how we treated him then and now. I repent again lord.

He was a great Disciple and has gave testimony as Jesus told them. He has inspired manny Christian believers including my self. I read several of his verses to my wife while she was in a comma and she used to respond by touching my hand.

IS JESUS SAYING HE IS GOING TO PREPARE A PLACE OTHER THAN HIS FATHER HOUSE...I OFTEN WONDER WHY IT IS SAID GOD AND JESUS ARE THE SAME YET JESUS IS ALWAYS SAYING HIS FATHER IS GREATER THAN HIM...(VERSE 7,10...THE TRUTH IS IN THE WORD...TO CHANGE THE WORD IS TO CHANGE THE TRUTH...)
