John 14:2-3 “In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. 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.”
The Lord told His disciples that He will go back to His Father and that they should not let their hearts be troubled. There was “good news” in this going away! The good news is, He was going to prepare a place in Heaven for us who follows Him. And not only that but He would return, specifically for His followers, so that where He was, they could be also.
He is the One preparing a place for us in Heaven and He will come and take us to be with Him there. This is a direct fulfillment of the Jewish wedding tradition where the Groom would go to His Father’s house to build a home for his Bride. And He would return at an unknown time to take her to be with Himself when all was ready at his Father’s house. This is what the resurrection and rapture is all about. And this is the new hope the Lord Jesus gave His followers on the night of His betrayal and arrest.
