John 14:2 In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 

John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also.

John 17:24 Father, I desire that those also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory, which you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. 

John 17:25 ¶ “Righteous Father, the world does not know you, but I know you; and these know that you have sent me.
