All Will Be Well

John 14:1

These words were spoken by our Lord Jesus to a small group of men who had believed on Him and confessed that he was their Messiah, the Son of the Living God. However, these men were now scared and extremely fearful. This group of believers had been with the Lord Jesus for about three years, they had seen him do marvelous things: he had rescued a marriage feast from being a disaster, had on two occasions fed a multitude with almost nothing, had awakened to rebuke and calm a raging storm, had set a man free who had been possessed and tormented by demons, and most tellingly had raised their friend, Lazarus, from the dead.

They had listened to him as he taught about his coming kingdom, had heard as he silenced the questions of the Sadducees and Pharisees driven by their hatred and hypocrisy, were heartened when the common people heard him gladly as one who taught with authority and not as the Scribes. Now He was telling them that he was going to leave them! This thought drove them to despair. How would they continue without his presence, his guidance? How would they navigate life’s problems without his wonderful wisdom, and what about the promise of deliverance from the hated oppressors? This was made all the more scary because they did not know where he was going! (John 14:5)

Now these words of Jesus are traditionally used to reassure of our heavenly home of the future; and so they do, however, contextually they refer to his coming suffering and crucifixion! It was his suffering and death that prepared the way for his believers to access the many mansions that he promised.

(John 14:1)!

Scripture says “But God commendeth his love towards us, that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us…..For if, when were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son……” (Rom.5:8-10). And again: For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God….” (I Pet 3:18). It was the way of the cross that Christ provided salvation for mankind and therefore made it possible for us the share and enjoy the mansions that are waiting above! Brethren, pause a while and allow the enormity of this truth to permeate your soul, no wonder Paul exclaims “O the depth of the riches, both of the wisdom and knowledge of God….” (Rom.11:33)!

But wait a bit, Jesus spoke these words to those who had believed on Him, and so in order to be assured of a home in heaven, you too must come to know him whom to know is Life eternal, this is accomplished as your belief in God issues an acceptance of his Son. (John 17:1-3)

Thus on this day, everything will be well, dispel all doubt and fear for Jesus has prepared a place for us! Mary Bowley Peters describes this truth which comforts as follows:

Though the love of God our Saviour, All will be well;

Free and changeless is His favour, All, all is well.

Precious is the blood that healed us, Perfect is the grace that sealed us,

Strong the hand stretched forth to shield us,
