Jesus answered and said to him, If any one love me, he will keep my word: and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and we will make our stay with him. He not loving me will not keep my words.: and the word which ye hear is not of me, but of the Father having sent me. These have I spoken to you, remaining with you. read more.
But the Intercessor, the Holy Spirit, which the Father will send in my name, the same shall teach you all things, and he shall remind you of all things which I spake to you. Peace I leave to you, my peace I give to you: not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be timid. Ye have heard that I said to you, I retire, and I am coming to you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice because I said, I go to the Father: for my Father is greater than I. And now have I told you before it shall be, that when it should be, ye might believe. I will no more speak much with you: for the ruler of this world comes, and has nothing in me.
And if also our good news is hid, in the lost is it hid: In whom the God of this world blinded the minds of the unbelieving, so that the enlightening of the good news of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, does not enlighten them.
But I say the truth to you; it is profitable to you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Intercessor shall not come to you; and if I go, I will send him to you. And having come, he will convict the world of sin, and of justice, and of judgment: Truly of sin, because they believe not in me; read more.
And of justice, because I retire to my Father, and ye see me no more; And of judgment, for the ruler of this world has been judged.
But we speak wisdom among the perfected: and the wisdom not of this life, nor of the rulers of this life, they being left unemployed: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, hidden, which God determined beforehand, before the times to our glory: Which none of the rulers of this world knew: for if they had known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
They shall confess to Jehovah his mercy, and his wonders to the sons of man. And they shall exalt him in the convocation of the people, and they shall praise him in the seat of the old men. He will set rivers to a desert, and the findings of waters to thirst; read more.
A land of fruit to saltness, for the evil of those dwelling in it He will set a desert for pools of water, and a land of dryness for findings of water. And there will he cause the hungering to dwell, and they shall prepare a city of dwelling; And they shall sow fields and plant vineyards, and they will make fruits of produce. And he will bless them, and they shall multiply greatly, and he will not diminish their cattle. And they will be diminished and brought low from oppression, evil and grief He poured out contempt upon the nobles, and he will cause them to wander in a waste of not a way.
Jesus answered and said, This voice has not been for me, but for you. Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the ruler of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all to myself.
