John 14:28 You heard that I said to you, ‘I go away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved Me, you would have rejoiced because I go to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.

Could you please give some light on this scripture.  Thank you very much!

You first, Mike. Tell us what you believe the Lord is saying there. If you are our brother in Christ, surely you have some light on this yourself.

This is the light I have:  Jesus told His disciples “the Father is greater than I” (John 14:28} because Jesus was made “a little lower than the angels” (Hebrews 2:9) and “although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.” (Philippians 2:6-7)

“Jesus said to him, Have I been with you such a long time and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father. And how do you say, Show us the Father” (John 14:9 MKJV).

“One Lord, one faith, one baptism” (Ephesians 4:5 MKJV).

“No one has seen God at any time; the Only-begotten Son, Who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him” (John 1:18 MKJV).afichuk

 

Amen, Mike. And now Jesus is no longer in the form of a bond-servant, having fulfilled the purpose of His appearing in the flesh:

Hebrews 10:5-16 MKJV

(5)  Therefore when He comes into the world, He says, “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but You have prepared a body for Me.
(6)  In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have had no pleasure.
(7)  Then I said, Lo, I come (in the volume of the Book it is written of Me) to do Your will, O God.”
(8)  Above, when He said, “Sacrifice and offering, and burnt offerings and offering for sin You did not desire, neither did You have pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the Law),
(9)  then He said, “Lo, I come to do Your will, O God.” He takes away the first so that He may establish the second.
(10)  By this will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
(11)  And indeed every priest stands daily ministering and offering often the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.
(12)  But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right of God,
(13)  from then on expecting until His enemies are made His footstool.
(14)  For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are sanctified.
(15)  The Holy Spirit also is a witness to us; for after He had said before,
(16)  “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord; I will put My Laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”

Jesus is on the throne of God, putting His Laws into our hearts as Lord of all.

“Therefore they are before the throne of God, and they serve Him day and night in His temple. And He that sits on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; nor shall the sun by any means strike them, nor any scorching heat; because the Lamb Who is in the midst of the throne shepherds them, and He leads them to the springs of the waters of life. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” (Revelation 7:15-17 EMTV).

Do you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and God, Mike?

Paul
