John 17

English Standard Version (ESV)

The High Priestly Prayer

17 When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, 2 since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. 3 And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. 4 I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.

6 “I have manifested your name to the people whom you gave me out of the world. Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. 7 Now they know that everything that you have given me is from you. 8 For I have given them the words that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me. 9 I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours. 10 All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them. 11 And I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one. 12 While I was with them, I kept them in your name, which you have given me. I have guarded them, and not one of them has been lost except the son of destruction, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. 13 But now I am coming to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one.[a] 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.17 Sanctify them[b] in the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sake I consecrate myself,[c] that they also may be sanctified[d] in truth.

20 “I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, 21 that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, 23 I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. 24 Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father, even though the world does not know you, I know you, and these know that you have sent me. 26 I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.”

Let US begin. Today, I want to discuss with you
about the problem with trusting in “self.” Being self-sufficient, selfreliant
and self-centered is an evil vice. It is promoted by the world
system and fostered by MY enemy.

Being self-reliant is nothing more than putting “self” before GOD. It
is walking in your own will apart from MY Will. Just like this 40-day
fast is MY Will, when people do what they choose without seeking
ME through an intimate relationship with ME, they run apart from
MY Will and they are living in sin – it is rebellion to ME. I want MY
children to walk in MY Will. Sometimes MY Will does not look right
according to the standards of the world. The world says chase
money, possessions, security, human love. MY Will doesn’t match
what the world calls normal. It looks different. But MY Will is correct.
I created humans and I also created them to trust ME and walk in

MY Will – to know MY Will you must lay down your life before ME in
humble submission and seek ME daily. Those who truly pursue ME
by devoting time to ME, intimate time with ME in the secret place
and reading MY Word will find ME and MY Will. This requires
choices. You must choose because worldly distractions can throw
you off MY straight and narrow path. O’ there are many other paths
to go on but all lead to destruction as the road to hell is a broad road
that many fall into. Few find this important narrow path to ME and
eternal life. Many think they walk the narrow path but they are
deceived. They listen to others who are also deceived.

Many of MY leaders are deceived and deceiving others because
they believe doing many works and staying busy in MY churches is
the way to eternal security but this is deception. It is only by
intimacy, truly knowing ME, spending time, devoting time to knowing
ME. This is the key to eternal safety and security.

Psalms 91:1. He that dwelleth in the secret place of the MOST
HIGH shall abide under the shadow of the ALMIGHTY.

The body is fed in the churches but this body cannot truly function correctly apart from nourishment which I give in the secret place and in the time spent getting to know ME in a deep way. This is where the body is truly built up. This is where I deliver MY Will and Words to MY sheep and sustain them to survive what the enemy tries to do to cause trouble. It is by intimacy with ME that you can sustain through the pitfalls and trials of life. If you go it alone you will struggle and ultimately fail. Because you do not know what I require apart from ME and I am the ultimate judge of all in the end.

How can you prepare to face ME in judgment if you have never
come close to ME and learned what I desire and require of you?
When you face ME without this intimacy you will be empty-handed
because you have relied on your own beliefs, own thinking, own will,
and you will fall greatly short. You will miss the mark.

Romans 14:12. So then every one of us shall give account of
himself to GOD.

Don’t be deceived. Many of MY so-called leaders never spend time
with ME, and they too do not operate in MY Will, and they are as if
the blind leading the blind down blind alleys of destruction. Many will
be surprised how misled they have been because they have trusted
in those who know ME not and they themselves are greatly
You cannot trust in what looks right in the world. You must submit to
Surrender your all to ME and seek ME whole-heartedly. This is what
I require.

MY Word speaks this Truth. Read it correctly and see for yourself.
MY leaders, too many like the world and its ways, so they change
the meaning of MY Words so they can feel good about mingling with
the world. The world is an enmity to ME. Read MY Word. This truth
is not hidden. You cannot love the world and ME both. I have bee

clear about this. O’ yes you are in the world, but you must follow ME
and MY Ways while you are in the world.

James 4:4. Ye adulterers and adulteresses know ye not that the
friendship of the world is enmity with GOD? Whosoever therefore
will be a friend of the world is an enemy of GOD.

There are distractions at every turn that will lead you away from
seeking intimacy with ME. You must desire to spend time with ME
more than the world’s distractions. You are settling for an inferior,
empty pursuit if you settle for the things of the world over a
relationship with the CREATOR of all life – your MAKER, MAKER of
the stars, and the heavens.

Hebrews 10:38-39. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man
draws back, MY soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not
of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to
the saving of the soul.

Do not trade down a glorious eternal walk with ME, the CREATOR
and SUSTAINER of all life for the cheap thrills offered by the world.

What you pursue in the world is empty satisfaction and ultimately
death. You choose your own destiny, you believe you create your
own path, you believe I bless your decisions. You have not come to
know ME intimately. If you did, you would learn differently. You are
deceived by the ways of the world and MY cunning enemy. He
would have you do what you believe best for yourself apart from
ME. This I cannot bless. Then MY children wonder why they run into
so many troubles. The worst deception of MY enemy is the belief
that all is well when you run apart from having an intimate
relationship with ME. This is the greatest deception of all. All seems
well, but when you face ME, I will tell you to depart ye workers of
iniquity, I never knew youP

Matthew 7:21. Not everyone that saith unto ME, LORD, LORD, shall
enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he that doeth the Will of MY
FATHER which is in Heaven.

Many will say to ME in that day, LORD, LORD, have we not
prophesied in THY Name? And in THY Name have cast out devils?
And in THY Name done many wonderful works? And then will I
profess unto them, I never knew you. depart from ME, ye that work

Yes, this is MY Word. I did not create you to walk apart from ME
and for you to seek your own way without ever consulting ME. Yes,
you can do these things because you have free will, but you are not
in MY Will and so you are sinning against ME.

I give MY children free will and they can choose to seek ME in
intimacy and trust MY Guidance or they can run apart from ME.
When MY children run apart from ME, out of MY Will, seeking their
own plans, they work against MY Kingdom plans and this is evil.

They cause destruction they don’t even know about, because they
have selfishly believed they can live their life outside of MY Perfect
Will and Plans.
They bring trouble on themselves and others. They leave
themselves open the whims and traps of the enemy. Children apart
from ME, you are no match to the wiles and cunning of MY enemy.

Do not think yourself so wise. You are useless apart from ME.
Why do I talk so of those with childlike faith as the ones who will
inherit MY Kingdom? Because these children recognize their need
for ME at every turn just as a child turns to its parent at every
moment. The child knows apart from the parent he is in danger as

MY children recognize apart from ME, they too are in great danger,
and trust in MY Every Word. This is why I implore MY children to
spend time in MY Word, where much information is imparted. All
answers for living this life are given in MY Book. I gave this Book as
a guide for mankind.

MY SPIRIT reveals truth in the pages. Only through surrender and
receiving MY SPIRIT in full measure will you receive the
enlightenment that you need to truly understand MY Words. It is not
by the teachings of men, but by MY SPIRIT that the Words grow in

your heart. Only by MY SPIRIT can you receive the light-giving life
of MY Book.

Matthew 18:4. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this
little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

1 Corinthians 2:11-14. For what man knoweth the things of a man,
save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of GOD
knoweth no man, but the SPIRIT of GOD. Now we have received,
not the spirit of the world, but the SPIRIT which is of GOD; that we
might know the things that are freely given to us of GOD.

Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom
teacheth, but which the HOLY GHOST teacheth; comparing
Spiritual things with Spiritual.
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the SPIRIT of GOD:
for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them,
because they are Spiritually discerned.

The world is full of deception now. Don’t be fooled by the evil
propagated by MY enemy. He would have you believe by the
messages you receive daily that you can trust the things of the
world. You trust in everything but ME, the GIVER of life. You trust in
money, education, worldly security, governments – it is false help
and security. This is high class deception and it leads MY children
away from ME. MY children then dabble in trusting ME.
They turn to ME a little and then rely on everything else. This is not

Yes, you are intimate with the world and your own desires, but not
with ME. You need to come to ME and lay everything down before
ME. You cannot truly know ME until you put aside your worldly
security and come to ME seeking an intimate relationship. Anything
else apart from this relationship is lukewarm and I will not honor a
lukewarm relationship. So many will be surprised when they face
ME and discover that dancing with the world and also spending a

little time with ME will keep them out of MY Kingdom. There will be
many surprised.

Revelation 3:16. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither
cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of MY Mouth.

What do I want and expect from MY children? I want their life. I want
it all in complete surrender. A dance with the world and a dance with
ME is evil. Read MY Word. O’ so many read MY Book and they take
from it what they want so they can placate themselves, so they can
enjoy the world and still feel that they can enter MY Kingdom when
their life ends. What a shock to those who discover that I only
receive those who have given ME their all – sacrificed their all. Their
pursuit of wealth, fame, possessions was all in vain and ultimately
keeps them outside MY Kingdom. Their own will and future planning
has led them on a path outside of MY Will and apart from MY True
Plans for their life – a life I created. The life I gave them and sustain.
O’ yes no one lives and breathes from day to day except I ordain it.

This is why MY children should not be so sure of their own selfish
planning apart from MY Will and true intensions for their life. I can
take any life I choose at Will. No one lives outside MY Decisions for
their life. I give, I take as I see fit, as I desire. This is why it is pure
foolishness when men create their own plans and make their own
way apart from MY Will for their life. It is the height of pride and
foolishness and it is evil. It is the way of MY enemy to lead MY
sheep astray down paths of destruction by what looks so normal
and right. It is the enemy’s deceptive plan to deceive many.

Job 12:10. In WHOSE Hand is the soul of every living thing, and the
breath of all mankind.

Psalms 104:29. THOU hidest THY Face, they are troubled: THOU
takest away their breath; they die, and return to their dust.

Verse of the Day 11-30-12

“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives” 2 Peter 3:10-11 NIV

1 John 1

New International Version (NIV)

The Incarnation of the Word of Life

1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus ChristWe write this to make our[a] joy complete.

Light and Darkness, Sin and Forgiveness

This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all[b] sin.

If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.
