Wesley's Notes for John 14:18


14:18 I will not leave you orphans - A word that is elegantly applied to those who have lost any dear friend. I come to you - What was certainly and speedily to be, our Lord speaks of as if it were already.

    "..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." What the Lord has begun, He will not rest till He has completed. You who are the delight of His eyes, and the joy of His heart; howsoever the enemy and his minions roar and threaten us, Jesus is still at the right hand of God, and the day of vengeance is in His heart!

    Continue, The Father, by cultivating the Son works Himself with all His riches into the vine and eventually the vine expresses the Father in a corporate way through His branches.The Fathers economy in the Universe.When we abide in the Lord and His words abide in us, we actually are one with Him and He works within us.Than when we ask in prayer for whatever we will, it is not only we who are pray.
