Wow, what a way to begin an announcement, “Hey, guys, I have something very important to say here but first I must ask you to not be troubled of heart.” Jesus addresses His disciples at a momentous time, on a very important occasion to communicate to them the launching of a new era that was immediately upon them and in which they would take the lead. “DO NOT let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated). You believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely on God; believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely also on Me.” (Jn.14:1, Amp) Jesus announces His going and stresses their total dependency upon Holy Spirit to do what HE, Jesus, has been doing while with them.
(Kathy) —The Bible doesn’t say “Let your heart be troubled only occasionally”. It says, “Let not your heart be troubled.” It’s not an option. “Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]” (Jn.14:27, AMPC) (KATHY will be speaking at KINGDOM CONGRESS 2018 Mar.7-9 Grace International [936-856-2455] just north of Houston.)
