Jesus went on to say, “In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me.”
Jesus was saying a great truth, and that was to wait a little longer and not to despair for all that is happening, and to support these moments of sadness, because soon will arrive the time to laugh.
It is that He advised them that we will last a long time without seeing Him because He would go to the Father, but hH also gave them the hope that He would one day return to us, and that all sadness would end.
At this, some of his disciples said to one another, “What does he mean by saying, ‘In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me,’ and ‘Because I am going to the Father’?”
For you who are reading these words it can be very clear what Jesus was referring to the words He said in verse 16, but the disciples did not understand anything, so they asked each other what He meant by all that.
It must be said that while we are in this world, we will be going through all kind of problems and difficulties, and moments of distress. And to this Jesus was referring, there we can see that He knew all the things that we would spend in this world.
It is good that we, like those people that had moments of sadness that we also could endure because Jesus promised that soon He would come to put an end to all the pain that overwhelms us and what God promises He fulfills.
