“Believe: The Ruler of the World Is Coming”

Blessings folk!

Jesus had told His disciples much.
Very much. (See the past few posts&hellipWinking

They were confused.
They were questioning.
They were being challenged.
They thought they knew what was to occur.

Now, Jesus is telling them that He is leaving.

John 14:29-31

“Now I have told you before it happens, so that when it happens, you may believe.

“I will not speak much more with you, for the ruler of the world is coming,
and he has nothing in Me;

but so that the world may know that I love the Father,
I do exactly as the Father commanded Me. Get up, let us go from here.

Jesus had told them many things that were to occur.
He told them before it happened.
There was a purpose for the telling - so that they may believe.

Jesus time of speaking to them face-to-face was drawing to an end.

Something was about to occur.

The ruler of the world…satan…was coming.
(Why is satan “ruler of the world”? Because man abdicated his God-given role of having dominion over creation when he rebelled against God.)
Yet, satan has nothing in Jesus.
Victory was already won…from the foundations of the earth.

Jesus did exactly as Father commanded Him…so that the world will know that He loves Father.

Then, an abrupt word…..”let us go from here.”

Jesus walked in obedience before Father.
So should we.


Then rejoice in what the Lord does.
