(John 17).

9I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours.


14I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world.



20“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

24“Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.

We dont know who belongs to the Father . We are told and by example how to pray

Mat 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Mat 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Mat 6:11 Give us this day our daily bread.
Mat 6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
Mat 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

So in other words, that we who are the true Children of God may be one, even in our Prayers, that we also would be in one with Jesus as Jesus is at one with God the Father that we all may be one.

ALL of you are children of the most High.

John 3:35 "The Father loveth the Son and hath given ALL THINGS into his hands."
John 6:39 " And this is the Fathers will which hath sent me, THAT OF ALL WHICH HE HATH GIVEN ME I SHOULD LOSE NOTHING, but raise it up again the last day."

Romans 5:18 Therefore as by the offense of one(Adam) judgement came upon ALL MEN to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one (Jesus) THE FREE GIFT
came upon ALL MEN unto JUSTIFICATION OF LIFE." Both of these are decrees from God. And the Gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

1Tim 4:9-11 "This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. For therefore we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God WHO IS THE
SAVOIR OF ALL MEN,
specially of those that believe. These things COMMAND AND TEACH. Doesn't say he'd like to be it says he IS.

"God hath concluded them ALL in unbelief that he might have mercy upon ALL."


21that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

Your answer was in his prayer. He does not pray for the evil that men commit but for the men themselves, ALL OF THEM.

Jesus told his disciples how to pray...
Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be they name,
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven........
Do we know the rest?
We can lead the sheep to the water, but we can't make them drink it. That is up to the sheep...

Give us this day our daily bread-increase our spiritual understanding on a daily basis.

And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us- keep sending offenses that we may learn to forgive and fulfill this part of the prayer.

And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil- This is where it gets interesting, as we are to suffer for good just as we suffered for our own evil. And in
suffering for good we are made like Jesus who also suffered for good as that was part of the perfecting process. How can God give you all power in heaven and in earth
if he cannot trust you to not interfere with his plan but rather be one with him in helping to complete his plan? Therefore evil comes your way for your own perfecting
unto the glory of your Father as you are conformed to his likeness. And once perfected you indeed are delivered from evil. (Carnality)-no more enmity.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory for ever. Amen

Maybe if the sheep see us drinking of the water they just might give it a try for themselves?

[biblical humor] Ok
If they haven’t made down to the brook yet, shame on them, Because I got my boots on, my hat and coat and standing at the door and looking up! I believe my redemption is drawing near. And I do not have a control of the flight time. And if they don’t make it this time, they can take the next flight out.

Sad they see the drinking of the water...just like Jesus...and they still want to kill the messenger.
If they have done it to Him, they will do it to you.
God bless you.

pray that our flight not be on the Sabbath or in the winter for there is much tribulation in those days.

Jesus told his Father, he was not going to pray for this world, then how should we pray?

Psa 100:1 A Psalm of praise. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
Psa 100:2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
Psa 100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Psa 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
Psa 100:5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Was that not the fall of Jerusalem around 70AD. That Jesus prophesied about there would not be one stone left about another. Those who stayed within the walls died of starvation , women eating there children but those who left and ran to hills and hid were save. Just like Jesus said we’re saved? It was terrible like never before.

And history shall repeat itself...
Do we not yet believe?

So why are we still entangling ourselves with the affairs of this world?

So knowing the outcome of a true warrior for Christ is death... do we fear what man can do to us or do we fear God?

Did we get it the first time, when we killed the Son, that history doesn't repeat itself? I tell you nay, the bride of Christ shall suffer the condemnation of the world; just as Christ suffer the world's sin.

Remember, our own unbelief is what condemns us.
Amen

No GOD condemns us! Or Saves us. He chose us we did not chose HIM.

There is nothing you had done, or contributed to your salvation. It is a gift from GOD. Faith is a gift, grace is a gift, your believeth is a gift. You cannot Bragg or boast about nothing concerning your salvation!

You had absolutely nothing to do with it, less any man should boast! No one can take credit for it, but “Sinners” will try. Because there is none good or righteous no not one.

19And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.

(Luke 18).

10as it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one;

11There is none that understandeth, There is none that seeketh after God;
12They have all turned aside, they are together become unprofitable; There is none that doeth good, no, not, so much as one:

(Romans 3)

I chose to turn around.
I chose life over death.
I chose to lay the gun down and not take my own life.
I chose to reach out and take his hand.
I chose.
We have a choice to make.
God is a complete gentleman; He is not forceful.
He gives us wisdom; it is our choice to use it.
