And finally He told them, Yet a little while, and the world seeth Me no more; but ye see Me: because I live, ye shall live also John In verse 18, His apostles still lacked knowledge; they failed to understand the spiritual meaning and reason for the impending death of Jesus, which was to take place in a little while. The all-wise, understanding Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, knew the frustrating anguish His apostles were facing during these final hours of His life on earth. Consoling them only as their Master could do, He said to them, ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice.
JUST A LITTLE WHILE LONGER
Certainly this came true. At His cruel death on the cross of Calvary, a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented Him Luke However, those, referred to here as the world - His enemies that sought His death, were triumphantly joyful. Their sorrow would only last for a little while, and soon your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
What joy there was among the apostles when they heard these words about their Lord and Savior, "He is risen" See Luke For a little while the apostles were filled with sorrow. Their Master had left them. But after waiting just a little while longer, joy once again filled their hearts. Jesus had conquered death, was risen, and soon would be reunited with them in Galilee.
