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

  • Mark Petersen
    These verses from John 16 are an encouragement to true followers of Jesus Christ. "In the world, ye shall have tribulation." A person who loves Christ WILL suffer persefution because of Him. When we walk in truth and obedience to God and the scripture we have this proof of rejection that shows we have eternal life. Praise God for not leaving us alone, but giving us His Spirit to help us abide!!

    V. 20 - ye shall be sorrowful, but the world shall rejoice (crucifixion); your sorrow shall be turned into joy (Day of Pentecost when Holy Ghost was poured out - Acts 2:38).
  • Lynn steele
    I thank god for using his son to go to the cross for ours sin like john 16 tell if jesus haven't gone away the comforter wouldn't bein able to come .this chapter speaks well of the comforter amen.
  • SFC Richardson
    The world tells us that if we hear voices, then we are insane, yet Yeshua tells us we should expect to hear His Voice. In order to hear His Voice, we need to Know His Word intimately. We do not want to hear: "Depart from me, ye wicked, I never Knew you!"
  • Irene123
    To Bill on John ch. 16 - there's no Jesus admonition in Matt to be born of the water and the spirit or Matt. 28:19 and Acts 2:38? These are in GOD'S Word too.
