Where I AM, You May Be
If I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again. Then I will bring you into my presence so that you will be where I AM..
John 14:3 God's WORD Translation
Being in mind as we are in Spirit is the goal of the Father and our on-going pressing in towards maturity. We are his workmanship created in Christ Jesus to good works. We are being made again in Adam: the new creation.
Jesus spoke in John 14 'I am going to prepare a place for you and will come again to receive you unto myself that where I am you may be also' This sounds confusing, Jesus was present with the disciples and yet he said ‘Where I AM you may be also' - talking in present tense. I believe He wanted the disciples to have the same relationship that He had with the Father. Although His physical body was on the earth next to the disciples, He was spiritually connected to the Father in the Spirit realm.
He lived from the heaven to the earth and not the other way round, from the earth to heaven. He prayed from the abundance: resource, light, peace and joy of heaven into the earth. That is why when he was with the disciples in a storm, he was able to speak to the storm as He was in the realm of peace.
He is inviting us into the realm of 'Where I am' to sit in the realm of peace, joy and light not 'some day' but a reality NOW. Frequently ‘where I AM you may be also’ has been translated to only mean at the end of the age literally in heaven. But I believe that Father’s work is to get us to be in the place of the ascended life here on earth, that we can live a life of ‘resurrection’ NOW being one with the Father in a place of 'being in the Son'
Lord teach us to constantly the way and the path that we should go
