“The Way Is Prepared Psalm 90 & John 14:1-8 NASB1995

God’s Eternity and Man’s Transitoriness.Psalm 90:1-17 NASB1995

A Prayer of Moses, the man of God.

“1 Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations.

2 Before the mountains were born

Or You gave birth to the earth and the world,

Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.

3 You turn man back into dust

And say, “Return, O children of men.”

4 For a thousand years in Your sight

Are like yesterday when it passes by,

Or as a watch in the night.

5 You have swept them away like a flood, they fall asleep;

In the morning they are like grass which sprouts anew.

6 In the morning it flourishes and sprouts anew;

Toward evening it fades and withers away.

7 For we have been consumed by Your anger

And by Your wrath we have been dismayed.

8 You have placed our iniquities before You,

Our secret sins in the light of Your presence.

9 For all our days have declined in Your fury;

We have finished our years like a sigh.

10 As for the days of our life, they contain seventy years,

Or if due to strength, eighty years,

Yet their pride is but labor and sorrow;

For soon it is gone and we fly away.

11 Who understands the power of Your anger

And Your fury, according to the fear that is due You?

12 So teach us to number our days,

That we may present to You a heart of wisdom.

13 Do return, O Lord; how long will it be?

And be sorry for Your servants.

14 O satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness,

That we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.

15 Make us glad according to the days You have afflicted us,

And the years we have seen evil.

16 Let Your work appear to Your servants

And Your majesty to their children.

17 Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us;

And confirm for us the work of our hands;

Yes, confirm the work of our hands.” Psalm 90:1-17 NASB1995

Jesus Comforts His Disciples John 14:1-8 NASB1995

1  “Do not let your heart be troubled;   believe in God, believe also in Me.  2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.  3 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.  4 And you know the way where I am going.”  5 Thomas *said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” 6 Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

Oneness with the Father

7  If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.”

8 Philip *said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” John 14:1-8 NASB1995
