They knew that; and, in addition to that, he told them that God was ready and willing to confer on them all needful blessings.

'In that Day'
The Joys of 'that Day'
"In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.

"Now we know that You know all things, and have no need for anyone to question You; by this we believe that You came from God."
