Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God believe also in me. 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. 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. John 14: 1-3.
