John Chapter 16

Joh 16:1 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. Joh 16:2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. Joh 16:3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. Joh 16:4 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you. Jesus seeing the future, did not want His disciples to be surprised and overwhelmed when persecution came. He was preparing them to face it. Jesus had already told them (Joh 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would
love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.)

Eastern religions, even of today, teach that it is of God to put to death those who differ from you in faith. It is very possible for some to say they are doing what they do in the name of God, when in fact, they are His enemy. Many people start out for God but when the going gets rough and uncomfortable, they turn back. Jesus made sure His followers knew of the rough times ahead. MH:
It is possible for those that are real enemies to God's service to pretend a mighty zeal for it. The devil's work has many a time been done in God's livery, and one of the most mischievous enemies. Those are very ignorant indeed of God and Christ that think it an acceptable piece of service to persecute good people.

Joh 16:5 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? Joh 16:6 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. Joh 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; 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. Joh 16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

Joh 16:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; Joh 16:10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Joh 16:11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. Joh 16:12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Joh 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. Joh 16:14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. Joh 16:15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
Jesus had many things to tell His disciples, but as yet they could not comprehend them. Later the Holy Spirit would reveal the things He desired to share with his followers.

Jesus' bodily presence could be only in one place at one time, but his Spirit is every where, in all places, at all times, wherever two or three are gathered together in his name. (Mat_18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.) The coming of the Spirit would be of unspeakable advantage to the disciples. The Holy Spirit is our Guide, not only to show us the way, but to go with us by continued aids and influences. To be led into a truth is more than barely to know it; it is not only to have the notion of it in our heads, but the relish, and savour, and power of it in our hearts. He shall teach all truth, and keep back nothing profitable, for he will show things to come

Joh 16:16 A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father. Joh 16:17 Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father? Joh 16:18 They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith. Joh 16:19 Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me? Joh 16:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow

shall be turned into joy.

What death does to our Christian friends is to take them out of our sight, not out of being. They are only out of sight, not out of mind. It is but a good night to those whom we hope to see with joy in the morning. The disciples' weakness, in that they could not understand so plain a saying, to which Christ had already given them a key, having told them so often in plain terms that he should be killed, and the third day rise again; yet, say they, We cannot tell what he saith; for, Sorrow had filled their heart, and made them unapt to receive the impressions of comfort. They wept for themselves, and their own loss, and the sad apprehensions they had of what would become of them when he was gone. But the world shall rejoice. That which is the grief of saints is the joy of sinners. Those that are enemies to Christ will rejoice because they hope they have conquered him. His resurrection was life from the dead to His disciples, and their sorrow for Christ's sufferings was turned into a joy of such a nature as could not be damped and embittered by any sufferings of their own.

Joh 16:21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. Joh 16:22 And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.
Gladness is sown for the upright in heart, that sow tears, and without doubt they will shortly reap in joy. Their sorrow will not only be followed with joy, but turned into it; for the most precious comforts take rise from pious griefs. Thus he illustrates by a similitude taken from a woman in travail, to whose sorrows he compares those of his disciples.

Joh 16:23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Joh 16:24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. Joh 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. Joh 16:26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: Joh 16:27 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

When the Spirit was poured out, the apostles attained to a much greater knowledge of divine things than they had before, as appears by the utterance the Spirit gave them. As the Father speaks by the Son, so the Son by the Spirit. He looks forward to their practice for the future: Ask and you shall receive, that your joy may be full.

the Father himself loveth you

Christ not only turned away God's wrath from us, and brought us into a covenant of peace and reconciliation, but purchased his favor for us, and brought us into a covenant of friendship.

Joh 16:28 I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father. Joh 16:29 His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb. Joh 16:30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God. Joh 16:31 Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe? Joh 16:32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
Joh 8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. The disciples had continued with Christ in his other temptations and yet turned their back upon him now; those that are tried, do not always prove trusty. If we at any time find our friends unkind to us, let us remember that Christ's were so to him. When they left him alone, they were scattered every man to his own; every one went his own way, where he fancied he should be most safe. Every man to secure his own; himself and his own life.

Joh 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
When he had done his work on earth, he left the world, and went back to his Father at his ascension. He was not forced away, but made it his own act and deed to leave the world, to return to it no more till he comes to put an end to it; yet still he is spiritually present with his church, and will be to the end. Christ having overcome the world, believers have nothing to do but to pursue their victory, and divide the spoil; and this we do by faith, 1Jo_5:4. We are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
