This is a glimpse of what I believe was said to the disciples when Christ was speaking to them in John 14:1-4. You have to understand that no one just got (understood) what it was Yeshua was trying to teach us or get us to understand. Its the same as if we try to bring someone up to our level of understanding and it just seems to go over their head. No man was as spiritually pure as Yeshua and his understanding was so connected to our FATHER that our worldly ways clouded (misconstrued or misconceived) what he was trying to say to us. Until they/we actually understood/understand his message from our FATHER we will miss that place YESHUA was trying to bring us to. That place is nous.
Christs Understanding I call it! Many of us who read it now think it might be talking about the rapture or a actual place in heaven for future events? Maybe this is true but on the way to it and how to get to it will be found in the places/mansions he brings us to understand by way of pistis on the way to higher levels of nous. Once we stop learning by way of our assumptions we shackle ourselves to, we become limited and limit GODS ability for his works to work within us.
Everything being spoke in John 14 is very pertinent to all of us now in the way we get to this understanding Yeshua was speaking of. The place he prepared (by way of understanding his FATHER’S teachings and meanings to him and that he would deliver to us to deliver us to our FATHER in the same way he was able to). Its all sitting right there in John 14.
1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2In 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. 3And 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. 4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
So what I see Christ saying here is based on the time he walked and talked to his disciples telling them “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”. All this pertains to what he has received from our FATHER and has to process it and digest it for us to be brought to his level of understanding. As many of us know, when the spirit is flowing through us it can be difficult to put into words that makes sense to others on this material plain. Yeshua also knew this and his preparation/digesting what his FATHER was revealing to him for us was necessary for him to prepare the way in a way he knew we could understand to get us to that place (nous) Christ’s Understanding.So this is the part where he says “I will come again and receive you unto myself; that where I am there ye may be also”. In other words bring us to his level of understanding by way of his preparation which once understood, the mansion is revealed and now you are standing in the same mansion without doubt and absolute understanding of what Christ was teaching. And there are many mansions, so this represents each different mansion/understanding/nous that all adds up to our FATHERS HOUSE in the end result. Seeing things and understanding things his way. This is our work, to seek truth which reveals the way to Christ’s Understanding which is absolute life on the other side. A complete perception shift, does take place.
