Jesus said, "In my Father's house are many mansions." Literally, the many mansions are many abodes or many abiding places. I enjoy the mental picture of the many heavenly mansions up on the clouds, but what God intended is much greater than my mental picture. His promise takes my breath away! That mental picture of a house on a cloud is not what Jesus talked about when He said, "In my Father's house are many mansions." If we look at what the Bible really says in the original language, then we can see that rather than saying, "In my Father's house are many mansions." He said, "In my Father's house are many abodes." You are the abiding place of His Spirit.

John 14:2-23
