Among other glorious things God hath spoken of himself this is one, I wound, and I heal, Deut. 32:39. Christ’s discourse in this chapter, which continues and concludes his farewell sermon to his disciples, does so. I. Here are wounding words in the notice he gives them of the troubles that were before them, John 16:1-6. II. Here are healing words in the comforts he administers to them for their support under those troubles, which are five:—1. That he would send them the Comforter, John 16:7-15. 2. That he would visit them again at his resurrection, John 16:16-22. 3. That he would secure to them an answer of peace to all their prayers, John 16:23-27. 4. That he was now but returning to his Father, John 16:28-32. 5. That, whatever troubles they might meet with in this world, by virtue of his victory over it they should be sure of peace in him, John 16:33.
