A Message from God’s Word

Gospel of John 17

“Jesus Prays”

John 17:9-10 – Jesus Prays NOT for the World: “I pray for them, I pray not for the world: but for them which thou hast given me, for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine: and I am glorified in them.” 1611 KJV

God is God and we are not! That belief and that profession from our own mouths puts us in a relationship with the Creator God, our maker and the maker of the Universe, and places us in a position of worship with our God. This relationship is unique and God holds those that are in it very close and knows each one so well that the number of our hairs on our head is counted and recognized by our Father. The Father has sent his Son Jesus Christ as a sacrifice for our salvation and his holy Ghost resides in our soul for the purpose of our essence being forever and eternally connected to the Creator God. We are the ‘them’ in our text: “I pray for them” that Jesus speaks of, we are not of the world.

The world does not think they need a God for their existence, they do not believe in a hereafter or an eternal existence beyond this physical earth, they do not acknowledge a spiritual aspect to the human experience, and they do not give any time to worship, prayer, or thanksgiving to something bigger than their selves. Jesus does not include those in this category in his prayer.

Consider these positions and the consequences of the actions of those in each and give God thanks for all that God has led you to in your life during your walk in this physical realm. Praise God in all things, good or bad that has led your life in the many twists and turns that you may have experienced and know that all that you do glorifies the Son, Jesus. Praise, God for all of God’s Children!

Quoted text are taken from the 1611 King James Version of the Bible with the many variety of spellings, which ARE NOT MISTAKES. The beauty of this Bible is from these spellings you can learn to number and add the sum of God’s word and know without a doubt what the meaning of the scriptures are as you read. A language that was created for a 5th grade level reader and a system for clarity of understanding God’s word without commentary. For More Information Visit our website: www.ChristianMissionConnection.org
