THAT THE WORLD MAY BELIEVE
ST JOHN CHAPTER 17
17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy
word is truth.
Brothers, here Jesus is praying to God the Father of us saints in this day. That he would sanctify each of us through the truth of his word. Do you see that by the Holy Word of God each of us is sanctified by the word.
18As thou hast sent me into the world,
even so have I also sent them into the world.
Jesus says that he has sent us Christians into the world armed with the truth of God's word.
19And for their sakes I sanctify myself,
that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
20Neither pray I for these alone, but for
them also which shall believe on me through their word;
Brothers, just as we heard the truth from each of Jesus' disciples, others now here the truth of his word from you and I.
21That they all may be one; as thou,
Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also
may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
This was one of the last prayers that Jesus ever prayed. He spent all of the 17th chapter of this book praying. Most of his prayer was reserved for you and I. That we would be, ONE AS JESUS AND THE FATHER ARE ONE, THAT BY EACH OF US BEING ONE, THE LOST WORLD MIGHT BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD, AND THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE ETERNAL LIFE!!!!!!!
Brothers, this is important that we as fellow believers in Christ Jesus be as one. That those of us who know Jesus as our Lord and Savior must stand together, and that by us standing as one the lost might see the love of God in each of us.
Brothers, the devil has caused the division of the true Churches in this day. We must turn away from the division of this day. I am not saying that all who profess to be a Church is walking in the truth that must be professed by a Christian in this day.
The following must be expressed by the true Church:
1. Jesus Christ was and is the only begotten Son of God.
2. Jesus was born of a virgin, and is called the son of man.
3. Jesus preached only the word that God gave him to speak, and that his chosen disciples were sent forth unto the world to preach the inspired word of God. As shall we do.
4. Jesus died for our sins.
5. Jesus was buried in a tomb.
6. Jesus rose on the third day following his death.
7. Jesus appeared to his disciple and many more after his resurrection, and before that he ascended unto heaven.
8. Jesus now sits at the right hand of God the Father in heaven.
9 Jesus shall appear, and receive us His Church. That where he is there we shall be also.
22And the glory which thou gavest me I
have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23I in them, and thou in me, that they may
be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and
hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Brothers, Jesus is in each of his children. We will be made perfect by being one. Oneness should be our goal. For we are told to walk Christ like in this life. Christ was perfect, and we are made perfect in God's eyes by believing in Jesus, and walking as one with our fellow believers.
Don't let there be any division in you and I. We must stand together in love with our brothers in Jesus Christ.
God bless you my brothers in Christ Jesus;
