Once we get past the shock of Jesus asking us to trust Him as if He were God we can settle into learning exactly what He is asking us to trust Him for.
He wants us to know Papa’s house has a room for YOU. He would not have brought up the subject if it weren’t true. Also, He is the one decorating it for you…to your taste. Did you catch that. He is preparing a room for you. Not for us all like one big room, but for YOU.
My wife’s office is right next to mine. Nothing looks the same. It is the same with her heaven which is right next to mine. She says it has no mansion only a universe to explore with mountains and flowers and all sorts of wildlife. Mine is a little less expansive but my address is right next to the throne of God and the river of life with a little cottage and a garden out front.
Furthermore, for this to happen He MUST go away.
There is plenty of rooms for you in my Father’s home. If that weren’t so, would I have told you that I’m on my way to get a room ready for you?" John 14:2 (DLT)
