John 17: 11-12 – And Now, Jesus… “And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine owne Name, those whom thou hast giuen mee, that they may bee one, as we are. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy Name: those that thou gauest me, I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the sonne of perdition: that the Scripture might be fulfilled.”
Jesus reminds us that he was in this world with those that were his followers that were given to him by our Holy Father, the Creator God and that all that he accomplished while in the world was to fulfill the Scripture. God has given us His word so that we will know what is expected, what has been, and what is to come, if we neglect to study that word, believe that word, and not read that word then we can’t know God. Jesus prays to God and asks that his followers then through to us today, that we would be one with one another as the son and the father were one. A powerful prayer from Jesus’ own lips on our behalf.
We have an advocate before the Father in Jesus everyday standing on our behalf to plead our case and hold us up in heaven while we still exist in this world on this physical realm. This text is clear to point out that there is more to this world than what we experience physically there is a spiritual world where our God and His Son and the angels reside, where one day will be united with our God! Praise God for his word, there is no confusion in God’s Holy untouched and unchanged word. If you are confused by God’s word it may be the VERSION you are reading if that is the case I suggest that you find out why that would be the case. Jeremiah 29:13 says, “Seek me and you will find me when you search for me with all of your heart.” God hears our prayers and he will honor the Godly desires of our heart when we ask and we seek to know the truth. Seek God in all things this day and every day and don’t let any stone go unturned. Our ministry at Christian Mission Connection is to inform and teach those who are seeking to know the truth and know what has happened to the truth of God over the centuries, we are always available to discuss this matter with anyone seeking to know.
