Jesus Comforts His Children

“Peace be with you!

“If you Love me,

Keep my Commands.”

My Father will love You,

We Will Make Our HOME With You.”

I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate
to Help You and be with You Forever,

“The Spirit of Truth.”

The World Cannot Accept Him,

Because It Neither Sees Him Nor Knows Him.
But You Know Him, For He Lives With You And Will Be In You.
I will not Leave You as Orphans;
On that Day you will Realize that
I-Am-in-my-Father,
You-are-in-Me,
I-Am-in-You.

∗∗∗

The ‘Holy Spirit,’

Will Teach You All Things.

Peace I leave with you; My Peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and

Do Not Be Afraid.”

Believe in God; Believe also in Me.
∗∗∗
My Father’s House has many Rooms.
I am Going there to Prepare a Place for You.
I will come back and take you to be with me where I am.”
∗∗∗
“I Am the Way and the Truth and the Life. 
No one comes to the Father except through me.

“If you Really Know Me,

You will Know My Father as Well.

I Am in the Father,

and The Father is in Me.

The Words I say to you I do not Speak on My own Authority.
Rather, it is the Father, Living in Me,
Who is Doing His Work.
Whoever believes in me will do the Works I have been doing,
and they will do even Greater things than these.
∗∗∗

“My Command is this:

Love Each Other As I Have Loved You.”

As the Father has sent Me, I Am Sending You.”

“Receive The Holy Spirit.”

Cf. John 14, John 15:12, John 20:21-23
– Jesus Christ

Jesus called a little child to him and said:

“Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children,

You will Never Enter the

Kingdom of Heaven.

 

“Whoever Welcomes One Such Child

In My Name Welcomes Me.”

If anyone causes one of these little ones, those who believe in me, to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!
If your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life maimed or crippled than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire. And if your eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.

Cf. Matthew 18:1-9

The Verdict

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

This is the verdict:

Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

Cf. John 3:16-21
***

“My sheep listen to my voice;


I know them, and they follow me.
I give them Eternal Life, and they Shall Never Perish;
No one will Snatch them out of my Hand!” 
My Father, who has given them to me, is Greater Than All;
No one can Snatch them out of my Father’s Hand.

I and the Father are

“One.”

Cf. John 10:27-30

“John’s Testimony of The Light”


In the beginning was the Word
,

The Word was with God,

The Word was God.

He was with God in the beginning.

Through him all things were made;

without him nothing was made that has been made.

In Him was Life, and that Life was the Light of all Mankind.

The Light Shines in the Darkness, and the Darkness has not overcome it.

There was a Man Sent from God. whose Name was

“John.”

He came as a Witness to Testify concerning that Light,
so that through him all might believe.

He himself was not the Light;

He came only as a Witness to the Light.

The True Light that gives Light to Everyone
Was Coming into the World.

He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him,

To Those who Believed in his NAME,

He gave the Right to become Children of God,

children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. 

The Word became Flesh and made his Dwelling Among Us.
We have seen his Glory, the Glory of the One and Only Son,

who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

(John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying,

“This is the one I spoke about when I said,
He who was born after me has surpassed
me because he was born before me.”

Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given.

For the Law was given through Moses;

Grace and Truth came through Jesus Christ.

No one has ever seen God but the

One and Only Son,

Who is Himself God

and is in closest relationship with the Father,

has made him known.

Cf. John 1:1-18

John The Baptist

The Father

“I am the Way and the Truth and the Life.
No one comes to the Father Except Through Me.

“If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him. Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.”

 

The Words I say to you I do Not Speak on My Own Authority.
Rather, it is the Father, Living In Me, who is doing his Work.

 

Believe me when I say that
I am in the Father and the Father is in me;
Or at least believe on the Evidence of the Works.

Cf. John 14:6-11

The Kingdom of God

“No one can enter The Kingdom of God unless they are Born of Water and the Spirit.
Flesh gives Birth to Flesh, but the Spirit gives Birth to Spirit.”

“You should not be surprised at my saying,

‘You must be Born again.’

“The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going.
So it is with Everyone Born of the Spirit.”
 “Very truly I tell you, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, Still You People do not Accept Our Testimony.”
“I have spoken to you of Earthly things and you do not believe;
how then will you believe if I speak of Heavenly things?”

Cf. John 3:5-12 – Jesus Christ

***

No More Death

“The people of this Age Marry and are given in

Marriage.

 

Those who are Considered Worthy of
taking part in The Age to come,

 

The Resurrection from the Dead,

Will neither Marry nor be given in Marriage,

They can No Longer Die;

They are like the Angels.

They are God’s Children,

Since they are Children of the Resurrection.

Cf. Luke 20:34-36

***

Believers Who Have Died

We don’t want you to be Uninformed about
Those who Sleep in Death, So that You Do NOT

Grieve like the Rest of

Mankind, Who have No Hope.

For we believe that Jesus Died and Rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have Fallen Asleep in Him.
The Dead in Christ will rise First. After that, we who are still Alive and are Left will be caught up together with them in the Clouds to meet the Lord in the Air. And so we will be with the Lord Forever.
Therefore encourage one another with these words. 

Cf. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
