No luxury apartments and no single rooms

Jesus said, “In my Father’s house are many mansions.” The Chief Apostle explained that this does not mean that there is a single room for every believer or even a huge apartment for that matter. How this promise of Jesus is to be understood was explained by Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider in a divine service on Ascension.

This divine service by Chief Apostle Schneider took place in Oberhausen in Germany on 14 May 2015. Some 6,800 young people from North-Rhine Westphalia and the Netherlands had gathered for their annual Day of the Youth. The Chief Apostle based his sermon on the words of Jesus found in John 14: 2–3: “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 to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
