Those who meet Jesus always experience either joy or its opposites, either foretastes of Heaven or foretastes of Hell. Not everyone who meets Jesus is pleased, and not everyone is happy, but everyone is shocked.
About This Quote
When Jesus said, "Those who meet Jesus always experience either joy or its opposites, either foretastes of Heaven or foretastes of Hell. Not everyone who meets Jesus is pleased, and not everyone is happy, but everyone is shocked" he was referring to the fact that no one's life works like it should. There are times when we can't remember why we started living, whether it be out of anger or fear. But Jesus says that no matter what happens, through it all there will always be hope of more to come.
