Precious Promises of Jesus Part 1
John 14th chapter Jesus was speaking to the disciples about the fact that no matter what the future was about to bring no matter what they thought would happen He had promises for them to calm them in their hearts these promises are for us too!
Text: Read John 14:1-3

1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 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.

a. We must believe and have faith! Works will follow!
B. Jesus works didn’t end they continue even today!
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
c. How we are able to do this is because the Spirit enables us
