I Have Overcome the World
I have told you these things in parables (veiled language, allegories, dark sayings); the hour is now coming when I shall no longer speak to you in figures of speech, but I shall tell you about the Father in plain words and openly (without reserve).
At that time you will ask (pray) in My Name; and I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf [for it will be unnecessary].
For the Father Himself [tenderly] loves you because you have loved Me and have believed that I came out from the Father.
I came out from the Father and have come into the world; again, I am leaving the world and going to the Father.
His disciples said, Ah, now You are speaking plainly to us and not in parables (veiled language and figures of speech)!
Now we know that You are acquainted with everything and have no need to be asked questions. Because of this we believe that you [really] came from God.
Yahushua answered them, Do you now believe? [Do you believe it at last?]
But take notice, the hour is coming, and it has arrived, when you will all be dispersed and scattered, every man to his own home, leaving Me alone. Yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me.
I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]. John 16:4-33. End of quote.
Ha! That never occurred to me. Why would Yahushua waited until the moment He was about to end the work He came to do on earth to reveal those things to His Twelve? Wow! How timely to include it in this post. Why?
Because this is the post meant to open eyes and ears to see and hear the Almighty Spirit of our Father/Creator telling us,
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle—meek and humble lowly in heart, and you will find rest—relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet for your souls. For My yoke is wholesome—useful, good—not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant, and My burden is light and easy to be borne. Said Yahushua in Matthew 11:28-30
