    comments on John 16 v 18 they didnt understand what he was talking bout a lil while this and a lil while that its still a mystery but here is what it is When he goes to the father thats the seed sowing mode he is the sower of the good seed that is gona produce a lil child in us a spritual birth then we will see him again,whosoever receives one such child in my name receives me,Thats y he is telling them a bout a woman in travail and birth pains,his seed is gona result in sorrows b/c i have spoken these words ( seeds ) sorrows have filled your hearts sorrows imply a spritual pregnancy but after the child comes then her sorrows are turned into joy which is the Child a spritual Child th H.G. He is impling a time of gestation, sorrows but after the child comes then our sorrows are turned into joy. His voice is his words his seeds etc he is the bridegroom and his seed is his WORD ( HIS BREATH ETC ) The lil while he mentions is a time of Gestation our hearts is like a womb where that good seed will be sown.John said he was a friend of the bridegroom and my Joy is fulfilled just to hear the bridegrooms voice ( his words etc ) Thats y he tells them of a woman in travail and birth pains etc.We are gonna see him again when we birth him, thats y he saying unless ya receive the kingdom as a lil child, a lil child implies a birth.when they asked him about the 2 nd coming and the end of the world he mentions sorrows ( child birth ) our new birth 27 times the prophets saw the world in travail and birth pains there is a baby Christ in our future thats y he always refers to himself as the son of man.But jeremiah is very bold and says he saw ALL men in travail and birth pains no wonder Jesus said the field was the world where that good seed will be sown the child is the H.G.
