“And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.”
King James Version (KJV)
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.
Joh 16:22 Ye now therefore have sorrow. Are in travail, but soon there shall be a birth, "the First Born of the new creation" (see Ro 8:29 Col 1:15-18) from the tomb.
