Ye Shall Not Find Me

"Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me; and where I am thither ye can not come."—John 7:34. "Then said Jesus again unto them,

I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and die in your sins; whither I go ye cannot come."—John 8:21.

These verses are usually misquoted thus: "If ye die in your sins, where God and Christ are ye never can come." But Jesus said just the same thng to his disciples in John 13:33.

"Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me; and as I said unto the Jews, whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you."

True, he said to his disciple Peter: "Thou canst not follow me now, but thou shalt follow me afterward," and so he told the wicked Jews: "Ye shall not see me till ye shall say, "Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord" (Matt. 23:39). In both instances he meant that he should not be followed at that time, but in neither case did he mean that they should be excluded from his presence forever.
