Jesus Being Omnipresent
John 13:1 Now before the Feast of the Passover, Jesus, knowing that His hour had come for Him to depart out of this world unto the Father... John 14:1 Do not let your heart be troubled; believe into God, believe also into Me. (3) And if I go and prepare a place for you, I am coming again and will receive you to Myself, so that where I am you also may be. Rom 9:5 ...the Christ, who is over all, God blessed forever. Amen.
Words of Ministry
Why did the Lord mention to His disciples that He was the same as God? Because He told the disciples that He was going and they had the human thought that His going meant that He was leaving them. Since the disciples knew that God is omnipresent, the Lord told them that He was the same as God. Just as God is omnipresent, so He likewise is omnipresent. Just as God is without the elements of time and space, so He is also without these elements. Since His going was actually His coming, their hearts did not need to be troubled by His going. He is the same as the God in whom they believed. If they believed in God, they also had to believe in Him because He is the same as the God who is always present. The Lord seemed to be telling His disciples, "Do not be troubled by My going. Do not let your hearts be perplexed. If you believe in God, you must also believe in Me. God is omnipresent. With Him, there is no time or space limitation. It is the same with Me. I shall go, but I shall still remain with you. And while I remain with you, I shall go. I am omnipresent. If you believe in God, you must also believe in Me, for I am the same as God."
