Here's the Paramahansa Yogananda's interpretation of the quotes of Jesus where Jesus says, "I am the way, truth and the life. No one comes to the Father, but through me," John 14:6. Theologians have misinterpreted Christ's words in such passages as, 'I am the way the truth and the life no man cometh unto the Father but by me.' Jesus meant, never that He was the sole son of God, but that no man can attain to the unqualified Absolute, the transcendent Father beyond creation, until he has first manifested the 'Son' or activated Christ Consciousness within creation. Jesus, who had achieved entire oneness with that Christ Consciousness, identified himself with it in as much as his own ego had long since been dissolved." ( Autobiography of a Yogi , p. 198, footnote; emphasis in the original)

I am so glad that he really wants us to know who he really is. So many r wrapped up in this trinitarian God the fat/son/hg theory but yet nowhere do u find this presented in scripture. What we do find is terminology like. If u have seen me u hve seen the father, why ru still asking to see the father,v7 from this point on u know him and hav what Seen him! 13-14 he makes importnt ref to In his name,why because he wants us to know that neither is there salvation in any other. If u understand that God just functioned at diffrent times doing a different thing... He created as spirit, he embodied himself as our redeemer and our savior. He sends the comforter in his name, what is the comforter? Its the HGhost read acts1/2:39. So if u refer to him as the hspirit, the spirit of Christ, U see its all him! Just alittle oneness information. mT 1 Mary would have a child and he would be called Emanual which means what? That God is with us, not 1/2 of God or A 3rd but that God himself had wrapped himself in flesh in the form of a babe to do what? Die for u and I why? because he said a spirit hath not flesh and blood as u see me have. u cant hang a spirit on the cross. So he is the fat/he is the son and he is his own agent to his own church in the form of the H/G but its all him!!

John 14 reveals a whole lot of who Jesus is first to God the father and next to us sinners. further reveals his being in us thro the holy ghost that'll teach us all things and comfort us. reveals his second coming after preparing mansions in heaven for us. it tells us he's our only way and truth and life. and most especially our hearts be firm so long we trust him only. bless you all

Susan Dalton's comment about verse 9 on 1/15/2012, 9:38pm...
"...he that hath seen me hath seen the Father..."
We recently went to New York City. Before we left, I had "googled" everything I needed to know. I had used Google maps to go everywhere we were to go. I had gotten reviews, and saw personal pictures of where we would be going. Every aspect of the trip had been covered. (places we were to go, modes of transportation, places we were to stay, where we would eat, time schedules, weather temperatures...)
Because I had "googled" everything and virtually walked and seen all we were to do, when we actually did it, the virtual was so close to being reality. There were a few variables that the virtual could not convey: encounters with people (whether good or bad), mechanical breakdowns, delays which alter the abstract schedule, and the human factor of leaving something out and having to improvise on foot; but, overall, the virtual was a copy of the real. You could almost overlay the one over the other and have a perfect match.
Jesus said, "...he that hath seen me, hath seen the Father."
Much like "virtual" seeing to "reality" seeing, God has given unto us His Spirit to see things now, and things yet to be seen.
"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God has revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. (I Corinthians 2:9-12)
Have you "googled" the Lord today, the date for the trip is impending?

Reju MJ's comment on 12/05/2011, 7:24am...
First of all in my comments I didn't say anything about rapture. In my reading of the Holy Bible I see the Lord telling His men/disciple/church etc that He comes back so that they could expect His coming.
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In 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.
3 And 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.
So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that LOOK for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation
1 Corinthians 1:7
So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ
1 Thessalonians 2:19
For what [is] our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? [Are] not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?
1 Thessalonians 3:13
To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the COMING of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.
1 Thessalonians 5:23
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and [I pray God] your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the COMING of our Lord Jesus Christ.
When Christ, [who is] our life, shall appear, then shall ye also APPEAR with him in glory.
For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we LOOK for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ
21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
1 John 3:2
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet APPEAR what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
1 Corinthians 15:23
But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming
1 Thessalonians 4:15 - 17
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive [and] remain unto the COMING of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
The Church is expecting the coming of the Lord their Savior. We children of light and of the day. We are not going to sleep at all; we are not going to lose our faith.
The coming of the Lord is not as a thief in the night for the Church. The prepared Church is expecting His coming, His saints, His holy ones are awaiting His arrival. They are not going to sleep as the 10 virgins slept (While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.). They are not preserved or kept for the darkness. But those that are choosing to receive Him at night (spiritually speaking) will meet Him when He comes from the wedding. ( And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.).
Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what END [is] it for you? the day of the LORD [is] darkness, and not light.
Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their place.
I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the NIGHT cometh, when no man can work.
1 Thessalonians 5: 1 - 10
1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as [do] others; but let us watch and be sober.
7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
So I think, we must expect Jesus and receive Him and be with Him forever rather than being part of those who are waiting for the ati-Christ.

I do not like to use the word Christian today,If someone asks I will tell them I follow that WAY.This
is what we were called first.In that WAY you lose yourself completely Mike Golden inner man is dead and Jesus The Father son lives in you.
Byron's comment on 11/14/2011, 7:14pm...
We need God Spirit within us the HOLY GHOST with the evidence of speaking in tounges.
But when the COMFORTER is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:(John 15:26)
And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.(Gal. 4:6)
Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the SPIRIT of God calleth Jesus accursed: and [that] no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.(1Cor. 12:3)
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.(Rom.8:9)For he that speaketh in an [unknown] tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth [him]; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. (1Cor.14:2)

Sunday only christians should really here this message.Knowing how much Jesus loved us and what He did for us, how people, christians live thier lives monday thru saturday boggles my mind.
Mary's comment on 10/18/2011, 11:48am...
To know Jesus is to love him,for he is love.He is the only way to the father. We must love him with all of our being and keep his commendments. We will be with the Lord in paradise. HE PROMISED.
Jayv Pilai's comment about verse 21 on 10/17/2011, 1:57am...
This like many other sayings of Jesus, touches on the main if not the CORE teaching of Jesus. The key words are HATH my COMMANDMENTS and KEEPETH them. Unlike the indoctrination by the Church that "our sins are all nailed onto the cross"; Jesus clearly stated that we MUST DO HIS COMMANDMENTS. It is only if we DO HIS COMMANDMENTS, we will be LOVED by Him and God. It is only then He will MANIFEST Himself. The most difficult of His Commandments is in Matthew 5.44 where He tells us to LOVE OUR ENEMY. Can any reader who reads this, love his/her enemy? I for sure find it difficult. This saying of Jesus is therefore of utmost importance as many other similar teachings. Look at this:
"Why call me lord, lord and not
do the things I tell you to do."
"Not everyone who calls me lord,
lord shall enter into the kingdom
What is being practiced therefore is NOT JESUS' TRUE MESSAGE, but CHRISTIANITY MADE EASY which very much benefits the EVANGELICAL MOVEMENT and to some extent the material help to those who convert or say that they have accepted Him. I like to heat from everyone who cates to disagree.

Jesus words there comforts and heals broken spirits.
Patrick's comment on 9/13/2011, 10:46am...
This is truly the word of God,verse 1,let not you heart be troubled:ye believe in God,also believe in Me.
It truly states,that many of us sits with worries,what people say about us,what we hear and our problems,but hear what God say's(the bible is alive)that we must believe in Him,we must not let our heart be troubled,cause in verse 6,He clearly say's,that I am the way,the truth and the life;no man cometh unto the Father,but by me.Verse 14 he promise,if we ask anything in His name,He will do it.
Trust in the Lord always,cause his love endures forever.AMEN
John Mumba Jonale's comment on 8/12/2011, 11:42pm...
There is real promise God will come again to take us home to be with Him forever and suffering will be no more. He came to die for us in order to have life and His death is not in vain
Lemoe l penu's comment about verse 24 on 7/17/2011, 10:40am...
this is the key to converting to God..one must love Him enough to obey...the finish work at the cross is enough evidence that God loves the world...THE CROSS SAID IT ALL...WE must have love, without love for Christ we can not keep his commandments...to God the praise and glory now and forever more, Amen
StephendeRafael's comment on 7/07/2011, 12:54pm...
In this chapter, Jesus defines clearly his role, that he speaks only what God the Father spoke to him in the ear. God will reward those who both have and do his commandments. Jesus says the same in that those who do these sayings of his will inherit. That is when we understand completely what is said thru study and purposefully do his will in everyday life, those then will live eternally in the heavenly mansions. There will be no miraculous second coming al la Harold Camping but only a strict adherence to the word of God will transform these bodies full of iniquities to Pure bloodwashed Angels in heaven who will worship the Father in truth as He desires from us.
Kim's comment about verse 6 on 5/04/2011, 5:24pm...
This is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. This is what it all comes down to. This verse strikes right at the heart of all other religions and proves them to be false.

ilove this book it great .
David O.'s comment on 3/31/2011, 4:17am...
John 14 is the greatest promise of Jesus Christ of Nazareth to His followers. They would stay with Him in their heavenly mansions for all eternity without end. Only one thing can give any one entry into heaven. Jesus said, "I am the Way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." verse 6. There aren't many ways into heaven, there aren't many other saviors. The Bible says there's only one. Christ alone, through His death and resurrection, paid the price for our sins. And only through Him can we gain entry into the presence of the Father. Have you put your trust in Jesus? So, when Jesus comes again He will take you to be with Him evermore.
Tina Hall's comment about verse 1 on 3/20/2011, 2:07pm...
I think we all should trust in the Lord more, and not worry so much about what others do or say.
We have no control over that. Jesus wants us to trust in him, and he will see us thru no matter
what circumstance we are in. He wants us to
rejoice in him, and know that he has prepared a
place for us to go to in Heaven to be with him
as a beliver when we die, or we are caught up
in the rapture. We should trust him more.
We should never give up, even though the enemy, Satan, tries to destroy us everyway he can.
Opal's comment on 3/17/2011, 2:21pm...
ydnick...im a baby in christ im going to explain it to you the way the spirit tells me...he that have seen me have seen the father...god the father needed someone without sin to bear all sins for mankind no one on earth was worthy enough so he been so great came into the world in the flesh as god the son witout sin he did not sin once growing up as a human being. knowing the pain he would feel on the cross as god the son he went to the garden to pray to god the father to let this cup pass from him even though he know why he came in the 1st place and that wasnt the only time he prayed to god the father he was setting an example for us to follow...you ask how can god be in heaven and on erath at the same time..im asking you how great is god? who made the heavens and the earth? right now he's with me do you think he's with you? if yes how did he do that cause he walks with me and talks to me each and every single day and im sure im not the only one that he has bless when does he get time to bless other people if he's with me day in and day out....that is to show you he can do things that looks impossible to us but with him all things are possible..be bless
