“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.”
“We are not to wait for the apostasy, the great tribulation, great
earthquakes and disasters but for Himself.
To wait daily for Him is the true Christian attitude, which is a mighty
power in the Christian life, walk and service. How we shall be
weaned away from the passing things of this age, how we shall
look upon all in its true light and be faithful witnesses for our Lord,
if we walk in this daily expectation of meeting Him.
And this we need. The Lord Jesus Christ must become more real
to our hearts. Our fellowship with Him, our trust in Him, our walk
in Him, our waiting for Him, all must become more real. The Holy
Spirit in His power will accomplish this in our lives. In the awful
darkness, which is setting upon this age, only such can abide
faithful who cling closer to the Lord and who wait for His coming.
The Lord grant this to all His people.”
