“Listen! Where I am, so shall you be with me, forevermore.” (John 14)
“And there we both shall dwell in fellowship with God.” Jesus tells his questioning and confused disciples that He will “prepare a place for them,” and that He will return to them. He is attempting to settle their hearts and reassure them that what is about to happen was not only predicted in scripture but also is essential to “the Way”.
