JESUS PRAYED FOR HIS CHOSEN ONES
We learn that the world is a tremendous battleground where the forces under Satan’s power and those under God’s authority are at war. Satan and his forces are motivated by bitter hatred for Christ and His forces. Jesus wants us to LOVE ye one another as He and the Father have Loved us (John 3:16) – the Love of Jesus penetrates the powers of darkness – (whatsoever you Bind in earth that was started by man and not by God – would be bound in Heaven, empowered by the Power of the Name of Jesus). Jesus prayed for His disciples, including those of us who follow Him today (He prayed ahead of us before the foundation of the world that we would be equipped by revealing God’s Name. He was the visible representative of all that His Name means. Christ has given you and me His Name. By the Holy Spirit working in you and me. (20 for it is not you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. Matt. 10:20) Jesus used the Power of His Name and the Power of the Word of God). 1When Jesus had spoken these things, He raised His eyes to heaven [in prayer] and said, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, so that Your Son may glorify You. 2 Just as You have given Him power and authority over all mankind, [now glorify Him] so that He may give eternal life to all whom You have given Him [to be His—permanently and forever]. John 17:1-2
He prayed that God would keep His chosen believers safe from Satan’s power, setting them apart and making them pure and Holy, uniting them through His truth. How can God give Jesus men – you were chosen before the foundation of the world. 5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you [and approved of you as My chosen instrument], And before you were born I consecrated you [to Myself as My own]; I have appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jer. 1:5
Before Jesus came to earth, He was One with God. (In the beginning [before all-time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. John 1:1). At this point, when His mission on earth was almost finished, Jesus was asking His Father to restore Him to His original place of Honor and Authority. (Jesus had to take off flesh to put back on Glory. Flesh cannot take on Glory).
Now, Father, Glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory and majesty that I had with You before the world existed.
