Rooms versus Mansions

In John 14 I’m sure that the translation ‘rooms’ is more accurate than the word I was brought up with ‘mansions.’ I prefer this word. And why not, I have many rooms in my house, I’m expecting heaven to be an upgrade. Our God will bestow us with mansions, castles, meadows, fields. God is not stingy, He is lavish. While a beautiful landscape or opulent building can impress us now, heaven will be more than we can ever imagine or think. God will delight to shower us with blessings.

So I will continue with my mansions. ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God. Trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions ……… I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:1-2
