约翰福音-John 16章 14-16 节
He will glorify Me, for He will receive of Mine and will declare it to you.
All that the Father has is Mine; for this reason I have said that He receives of Mine and will declare it to you.
A little while and you no longer behold Me, and again a little while and you will see Me.
We have seen that the work of the Spirit in John 16 is in three categories: to convict the world, to glorify the Son by revealing Him with the fullness of the Father to the believers, and to disclose what is to come. John’s writings are also of three categories—the Gospel, the Epistles, and the Revelation. The three categories of John’s writings correspond to the threefold work of the Spirit. His Gospel is mainly to convict the world, his Epistles are mainly to reveal the Son with the fullness of the Father, and Revelation is the book unveiling the things that shall occur in the future. The Lord said of the Spirit that “He will disclose to you what is to come.” The Spirit will disclose the things to come, which are mainly revealed in Revelation (Rev. 1:1, 19). In the book of Revelation, four main things are revealed: the church’s progress (chs. 1—3); the world’s destiny (chs. 4—16); Satan’s ultimate consummation—the great Babylon (chs. 17—20); and God’s ultimate consummation—the New Jerusalem (chs. 21—22). The book of Revelation discloses all of these things to us.
