Spiritually Symbolic Interpretation

John 16:12

I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

Jesus is tired of talking, and the minds of the disciples are too cluttered to learn anything else?

God's revelations are never ending and are only given to the world when we are ready--capable of learning it. Jesus will bring new teachings when He returns.

John 14:16

And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever

14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

16:7 ...It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

Jesus thinks we will be cold in the future and he wants to send us all warm comforters for our beds, that we will keep forever?

This comforter will look like a ghost and there will be teachings written on it?

This magic comforter will actually speak about the good things of Jesus ?

He will teach us of all things.                           (This could take a while)

 

 

 

 

 

{We are all mirrors of God, and we receive his blessings through the rays of the Holy Spirit, but our mirrors are dusty and Jesus' mirror is crystal clear.}

God never leaves us alone for too long, and knows that we need and want to hear from Him. Our kind Lord sends us teachings through the Spirit of Truth = Holy Spirit (Ghost).

Another comforter =        The New Comforter =      The Newest Holy Manifestation of God.

This return of the Holy Spirit will be in the form a of a man chosen by God, and He will sing the praises of Jesus and further clarify His teachings. He will also teach us all things = things He did not teach us in the past. Teaching us all things will obviously take a long time to learn, thus His 1000 year reign.   Consider this analogy: God is like the Sun, the Holy Spirit represents the rays of the Sun. Jesus is the perfect / flawless mirror and is a reflection of the the image     =   virtuous attributes of God. If understood this way, only then does it make sense that Jesus is God and yet is not God, which is a major cause of division amongst Christians.

John 14:3

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

John 14:18

I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Jesus left earth for two millenia because He wanted to build us all a house that we will all live in, together with Him ?

He says He will comfort us again .

God made a promise to us that although the physical body of Jesus had to leave the earth, His spirit is always with us and he is working to help us if we allow Him into our hearts.

Sometimes Jesus says "I" and other times Jesus says "He" in regard to the second coming? This is a very important clue.

John 16:8

And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

Someone is coming to reprove = scold--rebuke--yell at us.

The next messenger of God will show us of all the wrong doings we (the world, and each individual) have committed and how to correct these errors.

John 16:25

These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.

 

Jesus has run out of clever stories to tell us and He is tired of parables ?

Someday He will speak in a simple-plain language.

Parables are necessary for us to learn the deeper spiritual truths of God's message and were a good way for people to remember His words, because most of the world at the time was not literate. However, upon His future return, the world in general will be literate and have easy access to this new written Word of God.

O Lord! Enable all the peoples of the earth to gain admittance into the Paradise of Thy Faith, so that no created being may remain beyond the bounds of Thy good-pleasure. From time immemorial, Thou hast been potent to do what pleaseth thee and transcendent above whatsoever thou desirest.

God will never leave us on earth without guideance, which is delivered to us by his Holy Messengers.
