"I go to prepare a place for you"

Daily Manna from the 'Net - Thursday, March 24, 2005

'Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God ; trust also in me. My Father's house has plenty of room; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.' Thomas said to him, 'Lord, we don't know where you are going, so how can we know the way?' Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 14:1-6 TNIV Bible

We have been receiving the verse of the day from the TNIV Bible, and I encourage you to sign up to receive it also. Several times the Father has commented to me about the verse that they sent for that day because it was relevant to what is happening in the spirit. Around ten days to two weeks ago, I went out to the arbor to make it ready for people to come there. I pulled weeds, and watered the daffodils and trees, and just basically straightened the chairs and tables so it would be an attractive place to come and be with Jesus. Later, Jesus commented on this to me. He said, "That was timely, preparing the arbor for people. It is symbolic of what I did, when I said, 'I go to prepare a place for you'." Then He said that the time is near that He will take us to the place that He prepared for us". (The Father said a few days later that the taking of us is very, very near.)
