Wesley's Notes for John 16:22


16:22 Ye now therefore have sorrow - This gives us no manner of authority to assert all believers must come into a state of darkness. They never need lose either their peace, or love, or the witness that they are the children of God. They never can lose these, but either through sin, or ignorance, or vehement temptation, or bodily disorder.

Discussion for John 16

  • Drybones
    Here Jesus is trying to convey the message that his kingdom is Spiritual and the fallen Nature has been conquered by his resurrection from the dead. Being born again as we will see in the the writing of Paul is the total removal of the nature of sin and replaced with the new nature of The Spirit which is of the fullness of the Deity in us. Christian in name with kill those with the seal of God.
  • Joyce Ballentine
    I AM SO GRATEFUL THAT JESUS KEEPS IT REAL FOR US BELIEVERS! HE NEVER SUGAR COATED HIS MESSAGE TO APPEASE PEOPLE! HE NEVER TOLD US THAT LIVING IN THIS WORLD WOULD BE EASY CAUSE OF ALL THE TROUBLE IN THE WORLD CAUSE OF SIN! BUT HE DID PROMISES US PEACE IF WE REMAIN IN HIM!
  • A disciple
    George; "The kingdom of God comes not with observation; neither shall they say, Lo, here, or, Lo, there; for behold, the kingdom of God is within you." The world doesn't want to prepare themselves for the coming of the LORD; but instead to make themselves a king and a world system after the vanity and wickedness of their own evil imaginations; and the LORD has rejected the generation of His wrath.
  • George Duran
    All these need to be translated into dynamic physical activity, thus preparing the world for establishing the God-government on Earth.

    Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow,
