John 14:1-3 "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 ye may be there also.
