A Place for You 

   Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” John 14:1-3. Jesus spoke of a place and of the Father’s house. Where is the Father’s house?

    “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16. A temple is a dwelling place in which to live.

    “Behold the kingdom of God is within you.” St Luke 18:21. There is a literal kingdom and a spiritual kingdom. The kingdom within man is spiritual. Every man is a mansion, this is spiritual. In the scriptures, man is called many things: a tree planted by the water, lively stones in the building, clouds with or without water, synagogues, cisterns, salt, stars and many, many more things. These are all referring to the spiritual man.

    For this spiritual kingdom, there is a literal Heaven where God, Jehovah, a person, dwells. Jesus knows we are going to be with Him and the Father throughout eternity. Jesus established a church on earth which is to do the work of God. The church is the greatest institution that has ever or will ever be known. There are thousands of great duties to be performed to bring the church to completion.

    Jesus said, “In my Father’s house there are many mansions (or temples), but I go to prepare a place for you.” The church is world-wide; it covers the whole earth.

    Jesus has prepared a place in the kingdom, but Jesus has made a place for everyone who follows Him. Jesus went to Heaven, completing the sacrifice, receiving the world-wide church from the Father, and is preparing a place for everyone to work in this spiritual kingdom. What you are doing for God at this present time is a place where our Lord prepared for you. He put you in the place where you now serve. He did go to prepare a place for you in this great church, built upon a rock.

    Jesus said, “Where I am, you may be also.” Where is Jesus, spiritually? He said, “I will be with you to the end of the world.” If we are going to be with Him – and He said we were – He is going to be here on earth. Our place which He prepared is somewhere in the church. 1 Corinthians 7:20, “Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.” We have been called, chosen, and given a place with the Lord. We live and reign with the Lord Jesus Christ in the place He has prepared for us. May we be pleased and thankful for this place in the spiritual kingdom prepared by Jesus Christ.
