I will post my notes on days 15 and 16 later today. We are almost done!! See how quickly that time went by? Q
7Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
8And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
11Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
This is right on time because at this point in history, the disciples were waiting for the Comforter to arrive. The Comforter came for us so through Him, we will reprove or scold and help correct the world.
17Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?
18They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.
19Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?
20Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
God is not confined by time like we are. A day to him is like a thousand years. For some, it may seem like a long time since Jesus left until he reappears but understand, we will be with Him for ETERNITY. Yes we will suffer a little serving the Lord. Even now it seems as though the people of God are constantly under attack. But know that weeping may endure for a night but joy will come in the morning!!!!
23And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
24Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
Many of us have not because we ask not. We are the children of the most High and we should want for nothing. I am not just talking about things either. We need to ask Him to heal us, to give us guidance, and to remove doubt from our minds!!!
32Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
