People's Bible Notes for John 14:3


Joh 14:3 I will come again, and receive you unto myself. The reference is not to Christ's return from the grave, but to a return from heaven, the second coming of the Lord, which is a part of the Christian faith. Compare 1Th 4:17 Php 1:23.

Discussion for John 14

    Jesus saith unto him: i am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the father, but by me. john 14:6, kjv . there is only one way to god, and heaven, and it is only through our lord, god and saviour, jesus christ. there is no other way: there is no other person. period! jesus said it! and that settles it! no beating around the bush. his holy scriptures stands forever. god the father said to god his only begotten son: forever o lord thy word is settled in heaven john 14:6 if it is settled in heaven, then why is it not settled on earth? why are all these perversions of gods: infallible, inspired, preserved, holy scriptures? mere men pretending to be god!

    I AGREE WITH MATTHEW HENRY WITH WHAT HE SAID. Christ is the Son of GOD. When He left the Holy Ghost came on the day of Pentecost and brought back to remembrance everything that He had preached. Christ had ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand of the FATHER, to make intercession for whosoever would believe upon His name and do His will, as the will of the FATHER. Thank You, Brother Gary

    David ya gotta realize that th great promise was multiplication of christ seed thus christ has to be multiplied as the stars of heaven when the sower will go forth to sow his precious seed which is the word. th child is the h.g. thats y he is saying that which is born of the spirit is spirit thats the children of the kingdom which is the h.g.thats y he y he refers to the h.g. as the promise child

    David isaiah uses the davidic kingdom as symbolic language for the heavenly kingdom in 11 v 1 and they were father son and granson in 1 kingdom just as solomon came out of davids loins so the comforter th h.g.will come out of christ loins meaning his seed his words,his breath was his word his seed etc thus christ is the father of the h.g. just like david was the father of solomon meaning comforter
  • Alex
    David you do greatly err. god is refering to within his kingdom there is no god but him but in the kingdom there 3 that answer to the godhead father son and granson.exactly like the davidic kingdom that was composed of jesse david and solomon father son and granson 3 distinct beings but 1 kingdom. but unto the son he said thy throne o god is forever.isaiah uses davidic kingdom as symbolic for god.
  • David
    In Isiah chp 43 God says I am God there is no other God beside Me there was no God before Me there will be no God after me I encourage people to search for verses that speak of a trinity of gods or look in 1st John chp 5 for the Godhead the Father the Word and the Holy Ghost and the witnesses on earth the Spirit the Water and the Blood if you search earnestly you will find truth
