Knowing when it should happen!

John 13:1 NLT: Before the Passover celebration, Jesus knew that his hour had come to leave this world and return to his Father. He had loved his disciples during his ministry on earth, and now he loved them to the very end.

My dear friend in Christ, our work with God on earth is tied to times and seasons. Lack of knowledge of this truth will lead you to gross error and you may never fulfill God’s mandate for your life. We don’t do things the way we want or when we want. Rather, we wait for the set time by our father in heaven.

Jesus in our text today knew that the hour had come to leave this world and return to His father. Death did not steal Him by accident without His knowledge. This is exactly how God’s children should end their journey here on earth. Knowing when to depart. Unfortunately, many believers are afraid, not knowing when they will die.

Today’s text also shows that physical death is only a door to another realm; our eternal home. He didn’t just know He was going to die physically, He also knew where He was going. Do you know where you are going after here on earth? If you don’t know, it means that there is an error in your knowledge and dealings with God. It doesn’t matter your church or position in the society. Hurry, correct the error while you are still alive. Fix your relationship with your maker and be at peace that you are returning to Him. Shalom.

Declare to yourself loud: I will know what to do when the time comes.


  1. Spirit of the Living God, help me to always know what to do at every point in time, Jesus’ name. Amen.
  2. Please add your personnal intentions.

John 13:1-6
